Harvey Bros.' Variety Combination. A. L. Cunard is always a welcome visitor, and especially so on this occasion, as he brings along with him one of the most unique and original variety organisations that has visited us for some time past. The ladies are bright and talented, the comedians cleyer, and between them manage to provide a varied and most enjoyable evening's entertainment. Ella Siegfried and Violet Brandon, in their budget of popular oomio songs, were particularly conspicuous and never failed to receive a recall, while the male portion of the performers, amongst whom are Harry Cowan and Vincent Magee, were in great demand throughout. Of course the principal feature of the show was the appearance of Madame Helen Gordon Cunard and the brothers Harvey, the former fairly eleotrifying the audience by the brilliant rendition of her contributions, and needless to say her every appearance was received with spontaneous enthusiasm, and duly recognised by the audience. Of the latter (the Harveys), in their numerous grotesque, mimioal and eccentric specialities, too much cannot be said ; and we must pronounce them two of the finest clowns of this description that have ever visited us. Mr Cunard also deserves a word for his masterly execution of the banjo solo (original waltz), composed by himself. Those who have not yet visited this organisation should do so at once, as to misß it would most assuredly cause regret. Complete changes of programme take plate about three times a week, and they should never fail to draw bumper houses.
