duction, employing In its presentation a great
number of experienced players." The Idea is to tell
a progressive story of the development of the
Golden City, from Its aboriginal period, no lecture
or description being necessary to explain the inter

are used for this feature. The entire scheme; was
invented by Henry Lee, and the production is by
Harry Myers and Henry Lee, while the staging is
by Lawrence Marston. John Young, William Bosa
and half • dozen other prominent artists are at
work on the gigantic production. Charles Feleky

combination of drama and spectacle Is promised.

sensational episodes in balloon history. Accounts
have been published of how they were, dashed
