A Funny Mule
"Rex's Comedy Circus was one of the features of the bill at Henderson's. The best thing in the act is a mule that the
assistants try in vain to ride, much to the amusement of the audience."
"There are also two ponies, a clown and a dog in the act. which lacks novelty owing to Its resemblance to that of
Cliffe Berzac, the routine being almost exactly the same. The dog, a fine collie, is used on the revolving table,
as well as one of the ponies. The would-be riders of the mule also furnish amusement by falling from the table
while it is in motion."
Evening Public Ledger; (Philadelphia, Pa.; October 17, 1914 pg12):
"Rex's comedy circus including trained ponies, dogs, cats and 'Dynamite' the kicking mule."
