There was an ex- ceptionally large and enthusiastic audienoe. The scenes shown were all of great interest, de- picting as they did various parts of the mighty British Empire. In several of them most pleasing effects were introduced. The enjoy- ment of the illustrations was enhanced by the graphic descriptions given by Mr Bert Berry, whilst funny Johnny O'Rcurke was thoroughly c,ue,c.eec-'ui in arnii6?n.- I the gathering during the intervals. Appropriate musical setUngs were played by the Joseph Poole's Band, under the leadership of Mr Drake. In addition to the myriorama, a complete variety performance was also given. Felix de Morce's trained animals roused much enthusiasm. The four "Rosaires," gentlemen acrobats, were exceptionally smart, and the same can be said of the three "Boleros" in their very amusing triple bar act. The Seddons introduced a most pleasing number. The lady, juggled with plates, knives, etc-, etc., with great skill, whilst the gentleman (the lazy waiter) kept his audience in roars with his antics. The living marionette entertainment by the Tissots was another pleasing turn, whilst Eiloon and Maynee, the talented musical mites, were repeatedly recalled. Mr Bert Be r re- proved himself the possessor of a powerful bari- tone voice, and in "The B&ndolero" he was heard to good effect. On the whole, the pro- gramme was one of the most interesting of its kind ever presented in the town. Performances will be given every evening throughout this week.
