J AS. E. COOPER,
ADAM t'OREPAUGH, Jit..
JOHN A. EOREl'AUGH,
"The pore]).'.ugh show is all right! Thero are no (lie's on it this year. Its
acquisition of the groat Wild West Show, Captain A. II. llogardus, the great
spectacles, Slieridan's ride and tho Caster battle gives it a 'corner* on the cow?
boy, Indian and spectacular business, and with all these wild and romantic
frontier attractions presented in conjunction with the famous t-Paw Circus,
Menagerie and Hippodrome, an exhibition of fascinating and unparalleled
intorest is alforded the spectator. There can be no question but that Adam
Forepaugh has justly earned the t itle of King of American Showmen, and
that .1. E. Cooper, its present proprietor, will prove a royal successor."?Now
The combined 4-Paw and Wild West Shows,
three times the greatest on earth,
Will exhibit, in all their stupendous and unabridged entirety, with every act
and feature retained, and presenting the same remarkable^prograinmo that
carried New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington by storm, at

scouts and soldiers,
Including Sergeant Charles C. Wagner, sole.survivor of Custer's immediate
command, who carried the general's dispatches to Major Reno on the ill
starred Held, are brought into requisition in this mimic reproduction of that
awful massacre. Sensational introduction of ''Lone Feather," lighting chief
of the Ogallaha Sioux: "Rain-in-tbo-Faee," the reputed slayer of Custer;
"Hull Tail," who led the assault on Custer's command' ami other savage sur?
vivors of that historic horror. Magnificent scenery showing the beautiful and
tranquil waters of the Little Dig Horn River. All the exciting feats and
features of the weird and wonderful Wild West, including the grand drama of
civilization, vividly illustrating the sports, perils and romance of the prairies.
