show. "Mvaid~s of the Mill" is a. novelty
number in which the waltz music and
words of the song form a background
for a unique dance.
The "Love Theme" is another song
which is expected to prove a favorite
with the iaudiences before which the
opera will play this year. It is sung
in the first act and its repitition forms
a background for the closing scene.-
The dances which feature in the first
act are "the Dutch Cleansers" danced
by 8 men in the costumes of Dutch
girls, and the dance of the "Toy Sol-
diers 'and Dolls."
"V'anes" and "Vogue", fashion
parades, in which the new gowns de-

dances as the "Belle Boys" and "HatI

These are only a few of the songs
and dances, in this production, butl
these and many more are worked into
the story of the plot.
