AT THE EMPIRE.
Manager Dolly of the Empire has
reached out as far as the New York
Hippodrome for his feature act ior the
first half of next week and is more
than pleased to announce that he was
able to secure one of the prettiest and
biggest animal acts in vaudeville,
namely Spellman's bears, 11 in num
ber. Tnese bears are the finest train-j
ed animals in the world. There are i
among their number young and old j
and of all colors. Captain Spellman .
has sought in tbe far corners of the :
earth Tor pretty animals and tne
vaudeville and entertainment world in
general today acknowledges that he
has secured them. The New York
press unanimously declared Spell
man's bears to be the most attractive
animal act in vaudeville. In addition
to the attractive setting which is car
ried in a special car, tbe bears do
tricks that appeal to the eye and the
stage is tonstantly one changing mass
of color. The bears will be only one :
in five extra strong acts. The trolley
car trio, known on the circuit as the
funniest of acrobatic comedians; Emi-:
lie Egamore. James Grady & Co., and .
Jackson and Margaret will fill out this
strong bill. Miss Egamore is a sieger
of considerable ability and her new
popular cumbers have proved delight-:
ful. James Grady Co. appear in a :
little comedy entitled "The Toll
Bridge." Jackson and Margaret are'

For the first half of the week Mana
gers Bender and Linehan have secured
four acts of exceptional merit for the

In her impersonation of a doll tever j
fdils to nlease and delieht her audi-
1 ence. "The Dance of the Hoses" is
the climax of the act and is both beau
tiful and well executed. Stewart-Des-;
ond & Co. present a laughfng skit,
"( chen, the Cop." whTch is said to be
one of the funniest on the vaudeville
st; ge. The American Troubadours are
sirgers and musicians who play both
classical and popular music and piay
it well. IiOpez and Lopez are musi
cians cf more than ordinary ability
ar.rt their repertoire includes many of j
the latest and most popular songs.
