- C/-: Bostock, ■■ extensively kriown ; as^ "the
King," to evolve" the' idea or a
monster midway carnival' that_ could be
r. transported from one city to another." The
(.magnitude of this enorxaous undertaking
7 amazed, the less progressive .showmen,
•and it was thoughtHfiat irtr.'-Bostock- /-ad
undertaken more than h2h 2 "ould fultii.'But
tlie.resuit was jiist the opposite, and to
day- Mr. Bostock, who : has yet to reach
• the twoscore mark ? in-: years, 'owns more
wild and, trained, animals, show property^
and general .'exhibition* paraphernalia: than
any other single; individual' in the world.

to take action invregard to them. Al
though the .-case's are not developed to an
extent that would justify, him in d'eclar-; :
ing them to be small-pox beyond; doubt,
a rigid quarantine has been established
until the disease -progresses further. This
is one of several small-pox scares that
