In "Neptune's Daughter" a striking novelty
will be introduced. This is the entrance of King
Neptune and twenty-four mermaids through ten
feet of water ln the centre of the Hippodrome
tank, and their descent through the water nt
the end of the second scene. Tho mechanical
device by which this feat Is accomplished was
Invented by H. L. Bowdoln, a -New York civil
engineer. The story, which is based upon this
invention, was written by Manuel Klein and
Edward P. Temple, with music by Mr. Klein.
"Neptune's Daughter" Is in three scenes, the
first showing the coast of Brittany, with a ship
wreck, in which a little pirl is cast up from
the sea, and named "Neptune's Daughter." The
second scene shows this girl, eighteen yoars
later, betrothed to a handsome sailor, from
whom she has parted through pi<m<-. The dis
consolate sailor, wandering by the sea, is en
ticed by a band of mermaids to follow them into
the ocean, and sinks from sight beneath the
waves. The Hippodrome tank of water repre
sents tho Kf-a. Annette, as the litil«- girl is
named, is taken by Kins Neptune into his barge
to search for her lost lover, and she. too, sinks
beneath the waves with Neptune and his mer
maids. The third and cloning scene is a be •'!
derlng panorama, representing the court of Kinpr
Neptune, where the 1 >vers are reunited and
their marriage celebrated by a ballet, entitled
"Under the Bea."
The cast of principals to be seen ln "Neptune's
