The Pittsburg Press – September 6, 1910


Miner’s “Jardin De Paris Girls” and Cora Livingston, world’s champion female wrestler, furnished the entertainment to a crowded house at the Academy yesterday afternoon and last night.  A bevy of pretty girls and several good comedians kept things moving all the time.  The olio, which included Augusta Phelps, the Broadway Comedy Quartet, Davis & Harris, and the Merry Minstrels, was above ordinary.  Cora Livingston, the female wrestler came to this city for the expressed purpose of meeting Miss Nelson, a Pittsburg wrestler, who gained a decision over the champion last year.  Miss Livingston failed to throw Miss Hazel Kennard, of New York at last night’s performance and forfeited $25.  If shows of this standard are kept at the Academy, crowded houses can be looked for all season.
