Or Color, ' Craco and Action In Mingling
Brotbcn'-Protlaotlun of Jeratalain
and the Craaadea.
.Jerusalem and the Crusades is the
spectacular novelty of Kingling Broth
ers' world's greatest shows this year.
Twelve hundred characters are con
cerned, in the portrayal of this vividly
interesting story of the crusades, and
more than 2,000 costumes of richest
fabrie and artistic design are worn in
the-kaleidoscopic scenes. A ballet of
300, and a singing chorus of JiOJ) are
incidental features. The music, clas
sic in character, and specially written
for the huge production, is rendered
by the larges-t grand pipe organ, and
the only portable one, ever made, ac
companied by a selected band of 50'
soloists. The story of the crusades is
a pictorial narrative of the .day of
chivalry a time when life 'vas gov
erned by the highest ideals, the period
when knighthood was in flower, and
men and women held principle dearer
than life. IS'o chapter in the history
of civilization is more replete with
fascinating incident, noble impulse
and momentous result. The action of
the spectacle takes place on a stage
larger than the combined stage room
of 100 theatres, and the vast multi
tudes are managed with a skill never
before accomplished. The scenic em
bellishment is historically true, and
the workjif the most famous artists,
and all the multitudinous appoint
ments are of extraordinary value and
lustre. All the pomp and circum
stance of ecclesiastical life in the
chivalrie days of the 10th century,
the irridesccnt splendors of knight
hotid costumes and adornment, the
radiant, shimmering tones of ancient
feminine fashions, the glitter and
glisten of warrior emblems and im
plements, inlaid with gold and prec
ious penis, the impressive assemblage
of picturesque hosts, the spell of
brilliant and countless inventions of
decorative taste all these and. many
more features of appealing magnifi
cence make this spectacle the most
important and successful production
of modern times, or, for that. 'matter,
of all time. The fabulous cost of this
stupendous spectacle puts it beyond
the resources of any other show, and
thj arenie: space of no oIESt cTK:u.in
existence would afford adequate stage
room for the massive groupings, cvr-
1 litmus and processional displays. All
the exciting pastimes of the middle
ages, jousting tilts, sword combats,
spearing competitions, athletic ex
ploits, equestrian feats, and many
other exercises of daring and skill,
are thrillingly illustrated in a huge
tourney to celebrate the departing

tendants, pilgrims pages, soldiers,
penitents, choristers, theologians," stu
dents, serfs, vassals, characteristic
types of every class, dancing girls,
singing women, exuberant children,
and a thousand and one other pic
turesque characters, give vivid anima
tion and color, and enthralling inter
est to the panoramic changes of inci
dent and scene. The grand cathedral
at Clermont, France, from which Ihe
historic crusaders started upon their
holy mission, is pictured with classic
accuracy and charming coloring. The
palace yard of the Emir, the Egyptian
ruler at the time of the crusades, is
portrayed with voluptuous fidelity,
and presents in its passing incidents
the most bewitching exemplification
of ballet and dramalic art. The grand
ballet divertisement in this scene is an
original conception, and moreentranc
ingly beautiful than any dancing con
ceit ever invented and iin-terpreted.
The legions of girls employed in evolv
ing the elegant and graceful figures
of the novel ballet are artists, gradu
ated from the best mastera of the sar
tatorial art, lithely and lissomely
young, and sensitively practiced in ac
complishing the highest and most de
lightful effects in dancing study. The
barbaric splendor of the Egyptian
court are revealed in this revelling
scene of magnificence and expendi
ture never before attempted. This
prodigal display of mediaeval luxury
and original extravagance. . is only, in
keeping with the progressive policy
of the Itingling Urothers, who have
enlarged and improved every depart
ment thier enormous, shows, by far
the greatest in existence, until now
they appear to have reached the cli
max of human possibility. The great
show will exhibit in Keck Island,

2 o'clock and in the evening at 8"

LOW WATER NEXT

ST. PAUL WILL BE OUT OFF
Lit t tie Water In the fleservoira
From Which Much Should
Now there is talk of an extremely
low stage of water in the Mississippi..
Ueports from up the river say, that
the river between St. Paul and the
St. Croix river is very likely to be
come unnavigable later in the season
unless unusually heavy rains fall in
the northern part of Minnesota and
Wisconsin. The reservoirs at the
headwaters of the Mississippi in
which the government holds back
the supply of water are less than half
full, for scarcely any rain has fallen
in the northern part of the state
since March. The government reser
voirs are Iakc Winnebigoshish, Lake
I'okegama, Sandy lake, Pine Kiver and
Lake Winnebigoshish has a capacity
of 45,000,00C,00o cubic feet of water,
which measures 14 feet on ihe gauge,
now is only 7.15 feet, making the
amount of water less than half its
capacity. Leech lake holds 3:1.000,000,
000 cubic feet at a 6-foot gauge. The
gauge now registers only a depth of
1.S2, showing the lake to be almost
empty. Sandy lake is full, but it is
the smallest of the . lakes, having a
capacity of only 3,002,000.(M)0 cubic
feet and will last only a short time.
The gauge in the l'ine Uiver reser
voir marks 7.10 feet. When the gauge
reads 18.5 feet there are 7,500,000,000
cubic feet of water in the reservoir.
l'okegama lake is empty and cannot
be filled this season. The government
is replacing the old wooden dam with
one made of steel and concrete.
The total capacity of the battery of
reservoirs is 93,400,000.000 cubic feet.
When these are full it has generally
been possible to keep the river from
St. Paul to lied Wing from 12 to IS
inches higher than it would lie were
it not opened until the .boats on the
river are unable to cross the sand
bars. This usually happens in Aug
ust. The reservoirs drain about 12 per
tent of land tributary to the Missis
sippi river. Heavy rains through Aug
ust will keep the river at a iiaigable
stage, but if there is not enough rain
it will be impossible for the river
boats to get up to St. Paul.
BUSINESS MAN ASSISTS
A STATE INSTITUTION
The following appeared in a Chica
go paper under a Macomb date:
'Friends here of the Western Illinois
State NornAil school, located at Ma
comb, are jubilant over the action of
Mbert Kads. president of the I'nion
National batik, of Macomb, in coining
to the financial rescue of the school,
the work of which was seriously in
terfered with by the action of (iov.
Yates in his veto of the appropriation
providing for the completion of the
second and third stories of the build
ing. Mr. Eads makes the school a
present of $1,000, which has been ac
cepted by the trustees, nnd this, with
money which can be spared from the
maintenance fund, will enable the
temporary finishing of four rooms on
the second floor and make room for
many students who otherwise could
not be accommodated.
"The Macomb school, vvhich recent
ly closed its first year, had been more
largely attended than had been any
other Illinois state normal school the
first year. Owing to the incompleted
building the first story only could be
utilized, and so crowded was the
school that parts of two toilet rooms
were partitioned off and used for re
citation rooms. Classes ' were also
heard regularly in the corridor and
"The interference of. the governor
in the finishing of the Macomb build
ing is credited here to his dislike of
former Speaker L. Y. Sherman, whose
home is in Macomb. While the gov
ernor vetoed the appropriation of
$100,000 for the completion of the
building, he did not interfere with
many thousands of dollars provided
for buying furniture and fixtures to
be put.in the two stories he will not
allow completed, and to pay instruc
tors to teach in rooms which cannot
be utilized by reason of executive in
terference. Neither did the governor
interfere with the tax levy bill, and

Before selecting tho place for your summer vacation you ought to Bend
for a copy of our "Handbook of Colorado." This handy little book does not
attempt a description of tho wonderful Bceneryand climate, but it doeigive
definite information in regard to the resorts, hotels, h- ardiitg houses and
ranches in Colorado.
It tells where they are located, how they are reached, what the principal
attractions are, the cost of board by the week and tho month, the names
and addresses of the proprietors. At many of them capital fare and
excellent quarters can be secured at from $8 to 10 per week and upward. .
People of moderate means can well afford to spend the summer in Colo
rado, as the Burlington Route will sell tickets throughout the season at about
half the regular rates on certain days even less than half. Delightful
side-trips can be made from Colorado to the Black Hills and to Yellowstone
Park at little cost. "4
