The audience was Tirril of waiting and received the act coldly. Again there was a wild Rush to get up the. Second act. The wait before the second act was exactly three quarters of an hour. This act had gone beautifully at rehearsals but the audience was As restless As the company a Quot was nervous and the curtain went. Down in silence. After another dreary wait the third act was disclosed.

They were jerked off in proper manner but without the Protection of the falling Sheet of water every one in the audience could see. The. Strings and the people out in front howled with laughter.
