They are that good that they have been booked for a trip over the circuit with which the Empire is identi fied, and doubtless will be kept con stantly engaged.

They wear beautiful costumes and work in whirl wind fashion.- Sigsbee's dogs is about the cutest act of its kind that' has been this way the present season.
