JOHN ROBINSON'S SHOWS
MADE GOOD ALL PROMISES.
Sh6w Was Up To Its Rills and
Discounted Them by Far.
Feats which would be thought be
vond the realm of human endeavor
were pulled off one right after the
other and the immense crowds were
-kept guessing what was next alter

ing on then. Animals actually human

played hand ball with each other,
Ieiding on pbnies around tihe ring
the whie. Horeses cake-walked to
the music of the excellent band, bow
ed to the audiences, or answered the
commands of their trainers and rid
ers with an intelligence lacking in o
good many individuals. Elephants,
great, clumsy beasts, did jigs and
two steps on top of small barrels, or
walked on their hind legs as their
trainers choose. The antics of
clowns caused peal after peal of
laughter to burst from men, women
and children, while daredevil bare
back riders, bespangled in tights, did
impossible things on the ,backs of
their flying steeds.
The strongest man in the .world
lifted fourteen men on a platform on
his back, tossed a 750 pound dumb
bell about as he pleased, or juggles it
with four men hanging on to the
ends. Taken all in all, it was a great
sight for both the big people who
came witih an excnse, to the little
people who came as excuses, and not
o still minute in 'the kaleidoscopic
picture permitted to look aside.
The features of the day were, of
course, the daredevil dive of a highly
paid artist from the top of the tent
to the ground, eoming down head first
and striking an inclined plane which
righted him and the strong man wh
~permitted a heavy touring car to run
over him for the benefit of the
crowd. The slack wire walker who
walked up toward the top op the
tent on his unsteady rope and slid
down on his toe and heel was like
,wise no slouch as a thriller.
After the performance the crowd
gazed at the wild and rare animals
in cages outside. The John Robinson
circus deserves every modicum of
success, which it is attaining.
