NO BIG SHOW CUMING TO CAIKO A

Opinions of Leading Journals About
Sells Bro's Bi? Show.
A CRITICS COMPARISON.
As two shows are now advertised to ex
hibit in our city, wo havo culled the fol
lowing excerpts from our exchanges for the
benefit of our amusement going people, and
after reading tlui opinions thus
expressed, they can dicide which show
is worthy of their patronage. This tells
Chicago Herald; At both exhibitions
yesterday the tents were crowded, and
they are likejy to bo crowded during the
remainder of tho week, for the Brother
Sells have, contrary U tho general habit of
circus men, inspired the public with con
fidi nce by mere advertising what they have
to show tho public. They advertise enough
to make up a better circus than those who
float up pretensions, and the people when
they enter the teuts, know that their ex
pectations will be fully realized.
Chicago Morning News, May 30: Sells'
circus is not "a sell," it performs all it
promises and more. It opened yesterday
at 2 o'clock to a bouse of such magnitude
as a really meritorious exhibition deserved,
and which it generally gets in Chicago. It
would exhaust too much space to particu
larize every act, and yet to make a selection
for commendation would be unjust to th
omitted where all are excellent. There is
not a feature in the show which calls for
adverse criticism. Excellent order is kept
in the tents the employes are polite and
attentive. There is no nuisance or poddling
peanuts or hawking around stick jaw candy
and ladies and children unattended by the
sterner sex can reBt assured that nothing
will occur to causo them a moment's un
easiness. Chicago Tribune, May 30: Want of
space prevents detailed mention of every
act, it may be said that no circus which
has thus far visited Chicago has a tithe of
realy meritorious performers whom the
Messrs. Sells have procured for the present
Chicago Inter Ocean, May 30: The am
ple tent that surrounded the two rings con
tained a crowd that all but filled its am
plitude, and from the tiered seats the
clamor of shouts and whirl of applause were
more than unusually liberal. Beyond dis
puto the Sells Brothers havo an excellent
circus and a well stocked menagerie.
State Journal, Des Moines, Iowa, May
22: On Thursday last Sells Brother's
show exhibited in this city. At about 10
o'clock in the forenoon their parade ap
peared on our principal stroets and at
tracted tho attention and admiration of ev
ery one. The streets were lined with men
womeu end children. The parade was a
grand spectacle, and one of the best
which has yet appoared on the streets of
After being so favorably impressed with
the parade, we took our Faber and noto
book and retired to the grounds. We en
tered one of the menagerie tents they have
four tents in which their menageries are
exhibited and enjoyed ourselves for an
hour or two in looking atjtlieir large col
lection of animals, embracing most all the
living curiosities of the auimal kingdom.
Besides tho cages of lions, tigers, monkeys
rare birds, and elephants and camels,, and
various other animals usually found in
menageries, we wero attracted especially to
the white buffalo, which was captured in
Dakota, and to tho dozen or so sea lions,
the two hippopotami, which were cap
tured on ono of the tributaries of the River
Nile, in Africa, aud to the beautiful and
stately giraffe, the white polar bear, the
wooly elephants and the other rare and
beautiful animals, which are seldom seen
in inonageries or zoological cardens. To
the young folks, especially, these monag'
cries must be full of wonderment and at
tractiveness. Wherever Sells Brother's
show may exhibit, the children ought by
all means bopermited to go and see the an
Tho Sells Brothers' show, tako it all in
Jill their splendid parade, their beautiful
and blooded horses, their large and rare
monageries, their first class performances in
the rings is cortainly well deserving the
good words we have spokou of it; and well
worthy the patronage of tho people where-
ever it may appear. It is one of the best
shows that has ever visited our city.
Leader, Des , Moines, Iowa, May 20:
The general and uuanimous verdict of the
public to day has been most flattering for
the Sells Brothers' circus, which exhibited
yesterday. It is bolicved to be ono of the
boot, if not the very best circus ever exhib
ited here. The management aud employes
were civil and decent, and the performance
fresh and clean, and the feals grand. The
electric lights, the comfortable soats, and
tho smooth running of the programme were
all of a superior order.
The Des Moines Times in speaking of
the two shows, says : Coup's show is like a
tallow candle beside an electric light when
compared to Sells' Brothers' Big Show."
We have placed before our readers
and without being partial, we will say that
our opinion it would be best to wait for
Sells' Brothers great show, which will
