Empire, Tonypandy. !


Empire, Tonypandy. The top of the bill at the Empire this week is Jim Esson, of Aberdeen, the British heavyweight champion catch-as- catch-can wrestler and champion heavy- weight boxer of England. Esson is a magnificent type of man, standing well over 6 feet in his socks, with well- developed limbs, and finely proportioned. He gives nightly exhibitions of wrestling I and boxing, and in each department his work is clean from fouls from beginning to end. A boxing matinee has been arranged for Thursday and .Saturday afternoons, when Esson will give a gold medal to the winners in the various com- petitions. The Keppels, operatic vocalists, present a very entertaining turn of vocal music. Their voices blend exquisitely, and Mr. Stanley Keppel's efforts in the song, "My Old Chapeau," are worthily appreciated. A tour-de-force is that of the Four Sydney Girls. These sprightly young ladies win instant favour with their pretty songs and clever dances, the posing, in particular, fairly capturing the fluttering heart of the mere man in the audience. Arden and Odell are a pair of entertaining acrobats; while Marie Lord sings a couple of very catchy songs. Mark Hall is a comedian after the fashion of Wilkie Bard. His graphic recital of his adventures as a stay-at-home Tommy is distinctly diverting. Other interesting items are contributed by Victoria Neil, a delightful young dancer, and Neil Francis, comedian. The Empiro- scone" still moves with interesting pic- tures.
