prudence and a proper sense of the
fitness of things prevailed. I decid

more easily creep into the confi

Making my way to Potsdam, I

proper thirst for hock."

GREAT OROWDS AT CIRCUS.
Many People Here Plan to See Bar
num and Bailey at Colu .ibia.
Newberry will be well represented
at Columbia on Saturday, Oct. 30,
when the Barnum and Bailey great
est show on earth exhibits there on
that date, for a great many of our
citizens have already expressed them
selves as having made up their minds
to attend. A glance at the list of
-wonders to be seen with this big
show would lead one to believe that
the limit in tremendous size as well
as number of novelties to be seen has
fnally been reached. Barnum and
Bailey present this year under their
city of 14 acres of tents more things
than have been offered by all other
,,ows in years. "Jupiter, the bal
loon horse." Karolly's troupe of 16
HungariLan coal black stallions, the
musical elephants. celebrated Konyof
roupe of equestrians, seven troupes
of foreian acrobats, four troupes of
aerialists and hundreds of other
'arenic novelties all go to complete a
circus performance that has never
been equalled. The big menagerie
has been augmented by the addition of
many new strange beasts and is
larger than all the zoological gardens
in this country combined. The street
parade so gorgeous and so tremendous
in size, beggars description and in all
is a fair index to the wonderful per
formances that follow.
