Mr J. C. Williamson's BioTableau.
Mr J. C. Williamson's latest importation, the marvellous Bio-Tableau, will be displayed m the Oddfellows' Hall to-night, at 8 o'clock. During the evening one can shiver with the troops crossing Lake Baikal, perspire m the huge crowd watching Acrasia's victory m the last Melbourne Cup, weep to thoir heart's content over the domestic little drama 'Driven from Home/ yell with terror and delight at the escapu of two convicts from Dartmoor, glide along the river Thames through Boulter's Lock on Ascot Sunday, surrounded by the wealth and flower of the British aristocracy, have all the apparent sensations of flying ships at Earl's Court exhibition, sit m wonder and amazement watching the unique and weird Nikko procession of June last m honour of the sucsess of the Japanese armies. Next second, as if by the touch of a magic wand, you are m Tokio, with rickshaws reeling past, the quaint and picturesque Japanese, the dear little Jap girls, and all the flower and bloom of this lotus land surrounding you. ' Then the boom of cannon and you are an eye witness of .the Japanese taking guns at the battle of Liao-Yang. An efficient orchestra will perform the incidental music, and the performance will begin at 8 o'clock.
