PANORAMAS. and chiseling in which it has no equal. Every tower, buttress, recess, cliff, rampart and wall is shown and at the bottom is seen the magnificent river tearing over its rocky bottom. The Falls of the Yellowstone River rank first among the great mountain cataracts and our artist was fortunate to obtain two very perfect views. S. P. 572. OLD FAITHFUL GEYSER FLAYING. Price, $12.60. Approximate Length, 105 feet. Without any doubt the most wonderfully perfect representation of one of nature's strangest phenomena ever secured. "Old Faithful" has been alike the admiration and despair of photographers. Modern science and enterprise have now for the first time been successful in reproducing the spectacle in all its grandeur and originality. DANCES. S. F. 280. FIRE DANCE. Price, $6.00.

This picture was made by a lady who is admittedly the leading serpentine dancer of the present day and may be relied upon as an exact reproduction of this famous dance as given on the boards of the largest metropolitan theaters. S. P. 283. GERMAN DANCE. Price, $6.00. . Approximate Length, 50 feet. This is a picture of the very beautiful German national dance as danced by Miss Marie Shubert of the German Extravaganza Co., Berlin; it is in native costumes; veryi catchy and sure to please. S. P. 710. SOLOMON ISLAND DANCE. Price, $4.80. Approximate Leng-th, 40 feet. Over in the Solomon Islands, which lie off the north coast of Australia, is a race of one-time cannibals.
