The study is entitled "Lola," and the central idea is t.hi transmigration of the soul from the body combined with a presentiment of the theory that life can be restored ;>fter death.

The patter of the clowns had the merit of origin ality, and their initios were really smart. The equestrianism was of the usual type, and as enjoyable a; ever. The concluding item was high jumping by horses. No interval was allowed in the programme, and it was just as well, for a storm at about ten o'cluck must have made the management auxious about the canvas structure As soon as the people were out they hurry-skurried home.
