their debts. By the    she was 12 she could

hit anything     moved, though she did not

learn to read    her husband taught her.

  well-known Frank E. Butler.   were later married

and toured the circuses and music halls before joining Buffalo Bill's Show in 1885.

extraordinary.  She could hit a playing card at 10 metres end on, or knock the ash

  a cigarette held in her husband's lips, or else's;

she  the same trick in Berlin on Crown Prince William of Germany.

Annie   shoot the flames off a spinning wheel of candles, and even

perform when lying  the back of a galloping horse.
