Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

The De Marse shooting act is very clever and 'sufficiently risky for even the most sensational act'. Toch and Tard perform some remarkable feats, and only at the end do they let the audience into the secret that they have been humbugged, which causes much merriment.
