CIRCUS IN TOWN
Big Forepaugh-Selts Aggregation
-Showing on Ninth Street
CAME IN FROM MUSCATINE
Street Parade and Successful Af
ternocn Performance Fighting
Flames a Feature.
When there's a circus in town there
is nothing else doing. Papa closes his
office to take the children and mamma
goes along to help him with the chil
dren; and grandma, too, must go be
cause she has nothing else to do and
she didn't see such big circuses when
she was a little girl.
The country lad comes to town with
his best girl. .Circus day is brimful of
wholesome merriment for all of us, and
it makes an enjoyable break in the
humdrum of life.
The big Forepaugh-Sells Bros', ag
gregation came to town this morning
from Muscatine, where an exhibition
was given yesterday before big crowds.
It was delayed a trifle in arriving, com
ing over the Milwaukee road and un
loading at the foot of Seventeenth
street, where, owing to the fact that
the hour was late, the audience wan
unusually large and the operation was
watched with interest. The big tents
were erected during the morning on
Ninth street, where the performanc
was given this afternoon and will be
Maijr Vler I'aradr.
The street parade this morning held
the attention of thousands of specta
tors as it passed through the streets.
Numerous brass bands played spirit
edly, and the steam calliope tooted
merrily. It required 25 minutes to wit
ness the parade in its entirety, and the
crowd became young in its enjoyment
of the heards of elephants, open cages
of wild animals, allegorical floats, at
tractive groups of equestrians, embel
lished chariots, etc., the most unique
feature being the Forepaugh-Sells Bros,
The afternoon performance began
with a realistic spectacle, "Fighting the
Flames," which proved to be a panto
mimic and scenic reproduction of burn
ing buildings with all the thrillingly ex
citing scenes incidental to such a con
flagration. There were several heroic
life saving situations, and much to in
terest and amuse; the climax brought
forth cheers of approval. Forepaugh
Sells can boast of having the merriest
group of clowns ever seen in a circus
ring. Hilarity reigned supreme while
they held the scene.
