I which literally talk for themselves.
After singing and playing Into the
good favor of the crowd, a burlesque
military act Is put on, the third mem- j

Expert juggling and balninc'ng, fair
singing and dancing, an amusing sketch
well done, a musical team which is
really musical urid also funny, the best
acrobatic act here this season, together
with clevdr motion pictures, make up
a bill at the Empire which is way und
ahead of the ayeragfl performance. I

Henderson jumps nil over the stage
In blackface to the delight of the

audience convulsed with laughter at
their comedy and dating acrobatic
Miller and Mack are seen In as
clever an exhibition of clog dancing
as has appeared here this summer.
Lillian Garter contributes a very
novel singing act. She appears first

in many moons. The comedy Is clean
and the singing is easily the feature
Of a well-balanced bill.
