EVER HAVE IT?
If You Have, The Statement of
Tins Ste. Genevieve Citizen
Will Interest You.
The world's two most famous
circuses now me fieil into one
are headed this way and will ex
hibit at St. Louis Saturday,
Sunday and Monday, Septem
ber 4, 5, and 6th.
It would seem as though
everybody in this locality were
planning to attend. The ..very
name of the great new circus
Ringling Brothers and Barnum
& Bailey Combined lias been
sufficient to arouse far more in
terest than has ever before been
shown in the coining of any
amusement enterprise. And
word from the liingling Bro
thers, yho are the directors of
this gigantic circus, is to the
effect that those who attend the
performances will witness the
greatest program - ever present
ed in America. This is likewise
true of the manpnoth street
parade, which will postively take
place shnwday morning, the
mammoth menagerie and all else
connected with the biggest of all,
amusement institutions. The
famous showmen have made a
complete survey of both the
great circuses and merged the j
linest amHiest of each into one. j
Hundreds of hundreds of per
formers will appear in the gi
gantic main-tent. There will be
scores upon scores of the clever
est dumb actors. A gorgeously
costumed pageant of stupendous
size will open the program.
Great companies of characters,
representing the best-loved
stories of fable and nursery lore
Avill appear. There will be
splendid and many groups of
beautiful horses in jeweled
trappings. The army of clowns
exceed all past records for fun
and numbers. All contribute to
the biggest circus in history.
In a large percentage of cases

RESEMBLE ACRES OF LILIES
Visitor's Beautiful Description of the
American Cemeteries In France
Exquisite In Uniformity.
Though American relatives usually
want to plant (lowers on the graves
of their sons or hrothers In the Amer
ican nrmy cemeteries In France, nn
nrmy ruling forbidding this has been
adhered to. The cemeteries, n uni
form stretch of green grass with white
crosses, look HUe "acres of white lil
ies," according to Miss Elslo Godtlnrd,
a Wellesley graduate who has returned
to this qmuitry after having had super
vision of the Y. W. G. A. rest huts
built for the comfort of relatives vis
iting the graves In four of the Ameri
can cemeteries In -France. "At first
every one wants to plant flowers on
the grave they love." says Miss fled-
dard, "but tin?- soon si! that the army
ruling keeps the cemeteries most beau
tiful and Impressive because of the
uniformity. Cut Mowers can be placed
on graves and flowers can be planted
In tho flower beds near by, but not
on the graves. The French people
who are eager to decorate the graves
In some parts aro often surprised at
this ruling, but our cemeteries, as cared
for, are wonderfully Impressive. Aft
tcr visiting them few Americans want
tn take the bodies of their boys home,
though tlmy have been determined to
do It before they came." The Y. W. C.
A. and Ited Cross combine In main
taining rest huts nt Itomagne, Bony.
Ilelleau Woods ami Ferc-en-Turdenois.
"No matter how prepared a mother
and father are for what they expect
to see, tho tlrst sight of the Held of
American graves overwhelms them,"
says Miss Cloildard.
"MADE GOOD" WITH CAMERA
Kermlt Roosevelt's Photographs, T.
ken In Africa, Are Looked on
In 100!), when the Roosevelt expedi
tion went to Africa on the greatest
of all safaris, by the dropping out of
the professional photographer. Ker
mlt Roosevelt suddenly was thrust
Into the position of oil' 'i.l photog
rapher to tho expedition. 1 viewed this
arrangement with many misgivings
because It was a task for maturity
and long experience but the young
man made good. He made good 100
per cent, not only with the big game
rifle, but in wild animal photography
as well. 1
Mr. Kermlt's masterpiece is his best
picture of a whole herd of elephants
In a high but rallier open forest, Wil
liam llornaday writes in Scrlhner's
The light was none too good, but for
tunately It was good enough. This real
achievement wns scored from n perch
on n low limb of n tree, conveniently
placed to drop the Intervening brush
out of view. Five tuskers nppear In
the front line, and the elephants nre
massed together in the composition as
neatly and perfectly as If the hand
of man hnd grouped them to get all
tho thinkers Into the picture.
Col. Theodore Roosevelt was very
proud of this picture, and so were
the editors of Scrlhner's magazine and
the "African Clanie Trail" book.
Several American commissions have
recently made an Investigation into
the aircraft conditions in different
parts of the world, and they agree that
