the doors of tho circus woro opon,
and tho laro corps of ushers,
which included tho members of
tho Post, had all they could do to
seat tho big crowd which kept
pouring in. When Professor Bor
der's orchestra struck up the open

was literally and absolutely pack
ed from floor to coiling with all
sorts and conditions of huma

capacity of tho circus had been

thdy did so was shown by tho fre

Tho tent was beautifully deco
rated with flags of all nations,
susnonded from tho top of tho
tent around tho arena in the form
of banners. Flugs covered the
sides and entrances, and their
disposal showed much taste. Tho

the performers. As usual; Lahl
Sing was applauded to tho echo
for his groat bounding jockey
act, and the clowns were as amus
ing as ovor. Willifred Burns
showed how strong ho was in va
rious feats, winding up by lifting
a horso from tho ground. It has
boon ascertained that the
weight of tho horso lifted was in
tho neighborhood of 1200 pounds.
Tho marvelous umbrolla balanc

at tho 4th precinct, on January Cth
at tho special election, two
ballots woro markod in a
mannor prohibited by law, or
that both of said ballots woro
counted for Alexander Young, but
leaves petitioner to his proof
thereof. Defendant is informed
and boliovos that upon adding up
the roturns from all tho precincts
by Sheriff Hitchcock, it was found
by that official that thoro were one
hundred and twenty-sovon ballots
cast for each of tho candidates, ro
Bulting in a tio, which was certified

stroke boforo tho mark, besides
having three 'forks to one of tho
legs of tho "X." Also, that in tho
