people themselves will devote the
greater portion of the day to rest and
Monday will be "circus day" proper,
and its activities will open with the
parade which will leave the show
grounds at 10 o'clock in the morning.
The Ringling pageant this year is the
most magnificent and the largest ever
organized. Wherever the circus has
appeared during the present season
lavish praise has been bestowed on
the varied array of show wonders dis
played in this free street exhibition
The usual circus parade of conven
tional features, weather-stained char
iots, bedraggled costumes and proper
ties and weaned horses are refreshing
ly absent in the splendid procession
that bears the Ringling banners. Every
detail is brilliant in color and smart
in appearance. The C50 horses are im
maculately groomed and perfectly
matched. The great herd of 40 ele
pnanis, tne largest in America, are
decked out in a style of oriental mag
ni licence, and the caravan of camels
an 1 dromedaries present an appear
anee that would gratify the pride of a
far eastern potentate. There will be
large cages of wild animals in the
proct ssion, and, contrary to usual cus
tom, most of them will be open to pub
' lie view. A handsome set of new
chariots and parade equipage will con
tribute to the splendor of the affair.
IlaM Series of Flont.
Perhaps the most novel incident of
the Ringling parade this year will be
the series of enormous floats upon
which allegorical representations of
tlm great nations of the world will be
presented. The climax of this feature
will be the L'nited States barge, upon
which "Uncle Sam" and "Columbia"
will be surrounded by a score of pretty
girls wearing costumes typical of the
array and the navy. A troupe of Uni
ted States soldiers will escort this float
and they will be preceded by the fa
mous Ringling cavalry band on spot
less white horses.
There will be a series of children's
sections with miniature floats and ve
hicles drawn by pretty little Shetland
ponies. All the 1.200 characters ap
pearing in the spectacle of "The Field
of the Cloth of Gold" will be in the
parade, and all in all it will be a gor
geous effort to demonstrate the size
and splendor of the entire Ringling
organization. It will be composed of
20 sections, will be three miles m
length, and will require almost an hour
to pass a given point.
The circus will give two exhibitions
In Davenport Monday, one at 2 in the
afternoon and the other at 8 at night.
For the convenience of their patrons
the Ringlings will establish a down
town ticket office at Klenze's Second
street drug store, Davenport, where all
forms of admissions and reservations
may be obtained at exactly the same
prices asked on the grounds. This ol
fico will open at 8:30 Monday morning,
and will not only permit the early se
curing of choice locations, but will af
ford an opportunity to avoid the cus-

MISS CARSE IS SOLOIST
Audience of 3,500 Attends Petersen's
Band Concert at Tower.
An audience of nearly 3,500 attended
the concert of Petersen's band at the
Watch Tower last evening. Miss Ger
trude Carse of this city was the soloist
or the evening, and the fact that she
was to appear on the program attract
ed many of those who have heard her
previously. Her selection last evening
was Aylward's "Beloved it is Morn."
She responded to the applause with an
encore number, and her hearers were
enthusiastic in their bestowal of ap
plause and appreciation of her excep
tional accomplishments. The selections
of the band included several popular
numbers, and concluded with the fa
vorite "Razzaza Mazzaza."
