The Gentry Show.
It has long been conceded that the
Gentry Pros. are among the most en
terprising tcit showmen in this coun
try. They have not only proven them
1eve the greatest animal trainers in
America. but for years have given one
of the best shows which. comes to
this part of the globe. Tii keeping
with their usual methods of progress
iveness these enterprising amusement
producers have revolutionized the
tent show in the matter of light. So
delicate and so finished is the per
formance offered by the Gentry Bros.
animal actors that it seemed a pity
to have them appear before an appre
i ciative audience with inferior lights.
The old-fashioned circus light is good
enou.hh in its way, but as the small
boy would say. "it doesn't weigh
enough." The Gentry Bros, said the
same thing. and began last summer
to "look around for an improvement."
The result was success beyond their
dreams. A new light has been dis
covered, a combination of gas and
elect-icity. which promises to revo
hitionize the illumination of all can
vas or outdoor exhibitions. Tihe
w.onde!rful animal actors. appearing
in a "new light." will give two exhi
bitions in Newberry today.
