Yesterday Barnnm & Bailey's
Greatest Show on Earth moved into
the city and established itself upon
the vacant grounds at Ninth avenue
and Fifteenth street. Crowds
thronged tho grounds all dav, and
gazed with wonder upon the vast ex
tent of canvas that is tilled with all
the marvelous things that go to
make np the largest of all amuse
ment enterprises. Animals from all
parts of the world, people from
strange climes, and beautiful horses,
arc massed together in hundreds.
This morning the free street pageant
occurred. It fas the best that has
ever been seen here. Some idea of
its extent and magnitude can be
formed from the following, which

The people of this community arc
a music loving people, and as there
have been but very few operas pre

soeiety decided to give an opera,
thinking it would appeal to our best
citizens and at the same time give
value received to their patrons.
"Mikado" was selected, as it con

Messrs. Amsden Bros., of Chicago,
