"THE KID STAKES."
A ROLLICKING PICTURE.
The adventures of numerous Australia children and several goats are portrayed in "The Kid Stakes," a picture which delighted audiences on the Grand Theatre
on Monday. The exploits of that audacious young gentleman, "Fatty" Finn, have been depicted in pencil for some time, but Mr. Tal Odell, the director of the picture, has wisely assembled a cast of children to interpret the antics of these cartoon creations. The way in which the chil- dren enter into the spirit of the t.'iinz is really wonderful. and there is not a dull moment in the picture. Stonker and Hec- tor, the two principal goats, seem to know their importance in the scheme of things, and they do everything that a goat is expected to do, from eating straw hats to bun:in? their enemies in the rear.
