"Over Niagara Falls."
"Over Niagara Falls" is one of the
most pretentious scenic productions
ever exploited by anv management, and
those who enjoy melodrama can well
employ their time in witnessing this

al in the extreme. The company car
ries all its scenerv and properties and
it may be worthy of mention to sate
that from the rise to the fall of the
final curtain n t one piece of hous
scenery will be utlized. The great
scene in Act Three that of Niagara Falls
