Amusements. Hippodrome, Tonypandy. There is a galaxy of talent at the Hippo." this week. Topping the bill are the Auriginy Trio of Japanese jugglers, whose feats of juggling with plates, balls, candlesticks, basins, knives, &o., constitute a truly great perform- ance. The manipulation of about 18 basins is a clever and amusing item, and wins loud applause. Another strong attraction is Mak Montesole and his com- pany in the laughable sketch, "Even Money on the Garter." The fun of the piece is infectious, and our ribs ache now at the recollection. A turn of a very clever character is that given by Will and Rose, Continental eccentrics. Some very smart conjuring is sandwiched in between other modes of beguiling a busy ten minutes, and the result is a long smile and loud applause. Bancing occu- pies a prominent place on this week's bill. Among the adepts of the art being the Sisters Robertson, who are also very entertaining duettists; and Morris and Moore, in their simultaneous perform- ance. Fun on the Farm provides more mirth, blended with good songs; whilst Geo. Don gives us a series of burlesque character songs which are much enjoyed. The Arnolds provide an enter- tainment of a different character with their cabinet mystery, and they are accorded a warm approbation for their clever work. A good selection of moving pictures, together with some good music by the orchestra, add materially to the enjoyment of the programme.
Theatre Royal, Tonypandy.
Theatre Royal, Tonypandy. The melodrama, The Wrecker of Men," performed this week at the Royal by Mr. Watson Mill's company, is being received nightly with unflagging interest. The play abounds with thrilling incidents, ,and Miss Ruth Zillwood's spirited inter- pretatiol1 of Risca Mallinson," the reincarnated Egyptian Princess, specially appeals to all lovers of good acting, and is in itself sufficient to account for the 'popularity achieved, although the merit of the performance does not lie in any individual excellence, but in the general realistic impression conveyed by the whole play which is rendered with vigour by all concerned. As usual, interesting biograph pictures. fin up the intervals. Next week, Mr. H. Armitage is intro- ducing Campbell Goldsmid in the great moral play, The Greater Love," founded on the Biblical text: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man may lay Mr. CAMPBELL GOLDSMID, who plays Paul Penfold in The Greater Love." flown his life for his friends." It is a long time 49ince so original a play has been placed before the public in fact, it is doubtful whether one exists. It is the work of the eminent author, Vincent [Brown, who has iaken the simple Biblical text, and adhered. to it in the unfolding of his story. He has evolved a pure, simple play; dramatic, yet not melo- dramatic; expounding a. great lesson, yet Tiever preachy; beautiful in its pure Engli.sl1, yet understandable to the humblest intelligence. It is a thought- ful play for thinking people," and the reverence in the treatment of the great Biblical theme stamps lTincent Brown I Penfold," a mere workman, is his hero, and in his humble way makes a sacrifice I as great, or greater, than any ever made by the-hrilliant heroes of history. I one of our greatest writers. Paul I Miss FRANCESCA STRICKLAND, who plays "Mary" in "The Greater I Love." The company engaged by Mr. Armitage to introduce this work is worthy of the play. It includes some of the best acting names in Britain, Algernon J. Hicks, Marion Fawcet-t, Francesca Strickland', Ethel Russell, and Stanley Bedwell. Mr. ALGERNON J. HICKS, who plays The Rev. Arthur Warren I in The Greater Love." Mr. Armitage, himself, will be remem- bered as being associated with the late Wilson Barrett, Sir John Hare, Sir Charles Wyndham, and latterly as the entrepreneur in the provinces of "Leah Kleschna," "Lucky Durham," and "With Edged Tools."
Empire, Tonypandy. Another powerful, programme is in evidence at the Empire this week. Top- ping the bill is Frank Lister, the popular London actor, in an original American dramatic sketch, "No. 99, presented by Fred Kitchen and Frank Lister's com- pany. The scene is laid in Judge Camp- bell's Chambers, New York City. The Judge apprehends an ex-convict (99) in the act of burgling his chambers, and detains him pending the arrival of the police. It transpires, however, before their arrival that the burglar is the man who saved the Judge's daughter from being trampled upon by horses, and iso, when the police arrive, the Judge tells them their man has escaped. Binns and Binns, the vagabonds, in comedy and music, are quite original and create round after round of mirth. Alcide Capitane, the perfect gymnast, is a study of grace and physical culture, and captivates her audience with her gymnastic feats. The Phoenix Trio, singers and dancers, pre- sent an excellent turn, Those New York Bovs." Gladys Soman, descriptive vocalist, is a great favourite; while Macintosh and Royal are tip-top dancers. There is no doubt that the manage- ment of the Empire intend giving their Rholldda patrons some very fine pro- grammes, including some well-known artistes, this coming winter, and it is only right for us to say they deserve the highest credit for the able manner in which their programmes are being arranged. Next week, there will be ten star turns, including Mr. Frank Elliston in a beautiful dramatic sketch, My Lady Betty" (an episode in the Crom- wellian period); also Mr. Ernest Dott- j ridge's company in "Freddie's Ma-in-i law. This sketch is brimful of rollick- ing fun, and should cause much laughter and enjoyment. Those who are fond of music must not miss the famous Bocaccios, who are expert mandolinists and vocalists. Also the Howards, in a musical tit-hit, entitled Military Mad." Also on the bill are ChalS. Dillon, the well-known comedian; Annie Blanchard, who is a high-class vocal'- entertainer and Miss Billie Burford, who is recognised as one of the premier chorus singers on the vaudeville stage and last, but not least, the Three Orleans, who are capital vocalists and dancers; and Lily Palmer, quite a unique comedienne and pretty, dancer. In addition to the above splendid pro- gramme, The management have secured (by arrangement with Mr. Sam Duck- worth) a wonderful reproduction of the great fight between Battling Nelson and Wolgast for the lightweight championship of the world, fought at Richmond, California. These are the most intensely nerve-tingling moving photographs ever flashed on a screen, the figures appearing life-size and clear as crystal. There will be a special matinee every, day at 3.30, in addition to the usual evening perform- ances.
Workmen's Hall, Ferndale.
Workmen's Hall, Ferndale. Mr. Marcus D. Draper's talented com- pany presents this week the well-known drama, The Christian," by Hall Caine. This is the most popular of all the writer's successes. It is full of good things and powerful situations, marked by the dramatic character and closeness to nature with which Hall Caine's genius invests all his creations. Mr. Marcus D. Draper in the role of John Storm is excellent, and gives a masterly inter- pretation of the lovable clergyman throughout, and is well applauded upon his fine acting. Miss Gladys Purnell was again a huge success and was a charming Glory Quayle." Mr. Benson North is well suited as the villain, Lord Robert Ure." Mr. W. Burgess Barratt as "Horatio Drake" wins many admirers. Mr. Edwin Ling, in the impersonation of Father Lamplugh," is indeed very effective. Archdeacon Wealthy has a capable exponent in Mr. Aylmer Wil- liams, and so has Brother Paul in Mr. George F. Weir. The rest of the characters are equally well sustained, and the play throughout is splendidly acted, magnificently dressed and staged. The limelight effects are also great. For the last three nights of this week, Mr. Will Casey's company will present An Unwedded Wife."
Cardiff Empire. The premier item on next week's Cardiff Empire bill will be Chas. R. Whittle, the well-known comedian and creator of Let's all go down the Strand." He will be heard to advantage next week, when he will give a selection from his extensive repertoire. Mr. Whittle began his public career by singing in concert halls at hotels in Bradford, and the monetary rewards were not great. Then he got an engagement to appear at a music hall in Newport. Hard times fol- lowed and much struggling to get a living, when the unexpected happened and he got his chance at last at Birken- head. He was an instant success, and since then he has always been the prime favourite wherever he has been a^nearing. The Bensons, the' well-known enter- tainers, will appear in a great vocal, musical and comedy act; and another im- portant engagement is that of Carter Livesey and Lilian Rosebery, who will give their latest comedy playlet, An Amateur Anarchist." Other artistes engaged for the coming week include Mitchell and Cain, two clever comedians; Pat Rafferty, the

The Palace, Cardiff. An extremely funny burlesque drama will be presented next week, entitled That Dreadful Detective," which for uproarious fun takes the proverbial cake. The company is a strong one, and will include London's popular eccentric coue- dian, E. D. Nicholls, as The Detective." The Loube Trio, Continental comedy cyclists, are also engaged at enormous cost, and they are aptly described as the acme of perfect training and humour. Mr. Ellerslie Pyne is to feature .his suc- cessful and original scena, An Actor's Dream," whilst the Brothers Rees will appear in their wonderful athletic -and military act depicting soldiers at play. The above will be ably supported by Rose and Challoner, the smart comedy couple, as "The Porter and the Singer"; the Sages, the popular vaudeville artistes; Mr. Albert St. Clair, the premier double- voice vocalist; and the Bioscope, which will project Shakespeare's Hamlet," and The Bolt from the Blue."

Mother \in the railway caniuge); "Nmv, sit' still, Johnny, or you'll have to be punished when we get home." Young Hopeful: "Mamma, if you punish me I shall tell the guard my real age, then you will have to pay full fare." A budding orator, having delivered an ad- dress, turned proudly to his friend and asked: "Don't you think that was a finished speech?" Yes," replied the friend slowly, but at various points I thought it never would be! "You must try to love your papa," said the visitor, as much as he loves you." Oh, I love him more," replied Leslie. "Indeed? Doesn't your papa love you very much ? Not much. He says he loves me only when I'm good." First Burglar: "Halloa, Jim! Why, you look as if you had been in a railway accident since I saw you last. What's wrong?" Second Bur- glar: I got into a house where the woman was waitin' up for her husband, and she mistook me for him." What was the matter with that boy I sent you?" "He isn't honest." You must be mis- taken! "No I'm not. He said he was truth- ful and that he loved work, and a boy that can lie twice with half a dozen words is too swift for our business." Do you see the horizon yonder, where the sky seems to meet the earth?" "Yes, uncle. My boy, I have journeyed so near there that I couldn't put sixpence between my head and the sky." "Oh, uncle, what a crammer!" "It's a fact, my lad. I hadn't one to put." Why is a great, strong man like you going about begging? asked the lady of a tramp who begged for a penny. Ah, madam," replied the tramp, mine is the only profession in which a gentleman can address a beautiful lady without the formality of an introduction." A man went into an ironmonger's shop the other day and inquired: How much for a bath tub for a child? Ten-and-six," was the reply. W-h-e-w! whistled the would-be customer, we'll have to go on washing the baby in the coal-scuttle till the prices come down." A dentist and a paint manufacturer met on a down-town car. After exchanging a few com- monplace remarks the dentist said: By the way, what is your business? I grind colours," answered the paint man. "And yours?" "Oh, I cull grinders," answered the tooth carpenter. An active but illiterate member of a certain club was informed at the last committee meeting that the members had decided to give him an honorarium for his assistance. "Thank you, gentlemen, for your kindness," said he, but it's of no use to me. I really couldn't play it! Smith was telling Jones a story. Well, the evening wore on-" "Wore?" interrupted Jones, facetiously. Did it? What did it wear? Well," said Smith, nettled at the in. terruption, but equal to the occasion, If you must know, it was the close of a summer's day." "Look here, Wilkins," said a doctor to his boy in buttons, whom he had occasion to repri- mand, I can't stand any more of this nonsense. You'll have to turn over a fresh leaf." "All right, sir," was the witty response. You shan't complain of me again, sir. I'll be an entirely new Daare." A brighter morn awaits the human day, When every transfer of earth's natural gifts Shall be a commerce of good words and works; When poverty and wealth, the thirst for fame The fear of infamy, disease and woe, War with its million horrors, and fierce hell, Shall live but in the memory of time, Who like a penitent libertine shall start., Look back and shudder at his younger years. —SHELLEY.

Palace Porth. 'Tis not in mortals to command suc- cess, but we'll do more—deserve it is the motto of the proprietors of the Palace, and it must be acknowledged they live up to it. The drama presented by Mr. Harry Foxwell's company this week is entitled A Broken Heart." The company is a very powerful one, and the caste includes such brilliant artistes as Mr. John S. Millward and Miss Dorothy Haigh. The plot is that of an insidious villain tempting the young wife to leave her husband and children and fly with him, and its ultimate effect in bringing about her own ruin. The drama is of a very pathetic nature, yet it has its lighter moments of wit and humour. The leading characters are exceptional ex- ponents of the art of elocution. Mr. John S. Millward as John Barnard (a master blacksmith) is an actor of great passion, and his adaptation of the broken- hearted is most pathetic. Miss Dorothy Haigh as Mary Bärnard" (John's wife) I is wonderfully clever in her impersonation of this character. The part is very exact- ing, but it receives full justice in all its phases. Her performance is very much appreciated. Mr. Dennis Hogan as Stephen Raylton" (a man of fortune) is uncommonly good. His performance quite enhances the brilliancy of the play. Mr. Newton Pearce as Tony Tibbits," Mr. Vernon Travers as "Gash Gills," are very fine artistes, and so also are Mr. Eric Vayne, Miss Nellie Benson, Miss Nancy Mitchell, Mr. George Addison, Miss D. Francis, Mr. Chas. Grant, Miss Mamie Thorpe, Mr. Harrison Tate, Miss Ethel Gray, Mr. Hugh Alexander, and Miss CIssie Skeldon.
Tivoli, Pentre. A material change in the type of enter- tainment at the Tivoli this week is at- tended with excellent success. On Mon- day evening there was an unusually large audience at the performance of the real circus drama, The Life of a Showman," written by Charles Darrell and George .90 Testo Sante. This drama depicts the ordinary life of a circus, both from the public and private point of view. It is needless to say that the life of a show- man is not all enjoyment. The first of the four acts reveals the plot of a Boer and English adventuress, the former being secretary of Sir Noel Hartland, part-owner of a South African diamond mine. The plot apparently succeeds and the scheming pair become possessed of enormous wealth, while the daughter of the house becomes a member of Brien Leader's Circus. In this scene the violin solo played by Jose Sante is a rare musical treat. The remaining acts include a per- formance at this circus while trespassing unawares upon the property of the Baron and Baroness de Villemont, who are no other than the above thieves and robbers. This scheming pair are obliged to make further plots to remove the daughter of their former employer, who is now the wife of Brien Leader and mother of a charming girl, Lynotte. The scene in which Brien Leader exhibits his strength by withstanding the opposing forces of two local cart horses arouses, great ex- citement and enthusiasm. The further plots of the de Villemonts fail, owing to the reappearance of Sir Noel Hartland, long thought of ai dead. The stirring scenes and splendid acting of the com- pany as a whole will certainly please the audiences at the Tivoli this week.
