Astonishing in the extreme is tho wonderful manner in which. Mr. Sen- nett succeeded in training tho birds and beasts of tho farm to act the leading roles in this production. A dop, a cat, a cow, a Hock of turkeys, ducks, geese, and chickens, all lead themselves to parts in the production in a way that has never before been accomplished. Tho work of these habitues of the farm is at such a calibre that every audience becomes amazed at'the manner In which they perform.
