Show will exhibit on Thursday,
June 8. The, Daily X Ray, of
Charles City, said:
"Tlie afternoon performance
was presented before a tent full
of iieople, who were enthusiastic
over every feature. There it an
absence of sameness about the
W. P. Hall Shows, every part of
it being knew, novel and artistic.
Not a single thing on the bill was
omitted, and when tho magnifi
cent exhibition ended, the great
throng filed slowly out, loath to
depurt from a place which had
provided them with such a pleas
ant afternoon's entertainment.
Tlie performance, with variations
will be repeated this evening."
