the small boy, particularly, and the
public generally, because after a four
year abandonment the street parade
feature has been restored as an impor
tant part of the circus day program.
At Ottawa Today.
Today the circus is exhibiting in Ot
tawa, and will come here upon its own
four special trains directly after to
night's performance. The first train
will have arrived and been unloaded
white the average citizen is in the
land of nod, but not too early for an
army of youngsters, from 7 to 70 years
old, who would rather go without the
first meal of the day than miss seeing
the circus cornucopia unfold itself and
disgorgAits freight of good things.
The fourth and last train brings
what the circus people term "led" an
imals, including 32 elephants, 24 Si
berian camels and innumerable, llamas,
zebras, alpacas, sacred cows, Indian
cattle, etc. This motley array will
proceed immediately to the show
grounds, where, 'upon arrival, they will
find . their temporary canvas home
ready for occupancy.
Gyp and Lena, amiable pachyderms,
immune to all noises and confusion,
are always selected to lead the van,
and early risers along their route to
the grounds may weir marvel at the
sights afforded them.
MtM Tent Firnt.
Following an unbroken rule, the first
tent to be raised in morning will be
tho "mess tent," where three times a
day the little traveling community of
some 1,200 people are fed. Ixmg be
fore the heroes and heroines of saw
dust "and spangles will have arrived
at the grounds the little .army of work;
irigmen will have breakfasted in hearty
and robust fashion, the envy and ad
miration of any dyspeptic onlookers.
By the time the, cages reach the lot
the huge menagerie will be in position,
but not unf il after the parade .will .the
various dens and cages be placed. Af
ter the cavalcade returns each and
every cage" is thoroughly, cleaned, and
there are lots' of funny and hilerestine
things about a circus that even the
blase person who, attended circuses all
his life doesn't know.
The bi-horhed rhinoceros has his en
tire great hide rubbed full of fish oil
three-times a week, and both he and
the: hippopotamus are scrubbed with
soap and water each day. . It's a rare
sight to - see ' the keeper clamber into
the hippo's cage with ' Ms pail, , brush
and soap, and explain-why tr-? process
is necessary. In the circus, taiks the
depth Is not sufficient to entirely sub
merge the body as incthe river, amid
their natural environment. The blood
rushes to their backs unless the pores
are kept active and hardens similar to
fish scales, and the animal sickens.
The thick-hided hippopotamus enjoys
it immensely, this daily onslaught with
the scrubbing brush, opening his im
mense mouth- to have the gums rub
bed, and with thick, guttural grunts
indicating his complacent satisfaction.
More Varied Than Kver.
The animal exhibit this year is prom
ised to be more varied than ever be
fore, and is especially attractive in tho
nursery department. No less than half
a dozen babies will be seen in the
zoological kindergarten, where Baby
Bunting, tho infant elephant. Is un
crowned iucen. Then there Is a baby
camel, baby llama, infant kangaroo,
all of which cause quite as much con
cern as to care and diet as an equal
number of boys or girls.
Baby Bunting has been segregated
from "Babe," its bulky mother, and is
fed rice milk from a nursing bottle and
baby food, all of which it enjoys and
disposes of in a manner to indicate
that it will in time live up to all tra
ditions regarding an elephant's appe
tite. . . '
If the weather man is half decent to
morrow the parade will leave the
grounds at 10 o'clock and traverse the
principal streets. The circus people
promise a splendid display and a fine
index to their tremendous resources.
It will be a veritable horse fair for
one thing, and a generous display of
open cages is announced. Every bit
of the wardrobe is-new and the color
of Harper house.

ful cavalcade takes a full half hour to
pass a given spot.
Twenty-five elephants will march in
sedate file, and a large drove of camels
will afford a fine contrasting element.
Men and women riders in elaborate
and fanciful suits and costumes mount
ed upon thoroughbred horses in gor
geous housings and trappings will be
seen in line and several bands will
In short, the parade will be well
worth seeing. The performances prop
er present much that is new this year,
and of course there's a "thriller." This
is termed "autos that pass in the air,"
and has the stunts of previous seasons
totally eclipsed. While one auto leaps
a 40-foot chasm, the other leaps high
in the air, turning a complete somer
sault over its mate and landing 50 feet
away. Anaemic persons are warned
against looking at this act. Two at
tractive French girls, the Sisters La
Rogue, occupy the machines.

GENERAL A. MACKENZIE,
Former Chief of Engineers, U. S. A.
The current issue of the Engineering
Record makes the following reference
to the change in the office of chief of
engineers of the United States army:
Colonel Marshall, the new chief of
engineers of the anny, assumes his of
fice with the hearty ghod wishes of all
who are acquainted with the fairness
and ability he has shown in many re
sponsible posts. At Chicago -he was
sometimes compelled to make 'rulings
contrarjr to the desires of influential
parties, yet they were always willing
to admit that in safeguarding federal
interests he was not partisan for the
government, but a just judge of all
claims. Since he has been in charge
of the improvement of New York har
bor he has won the gooa will of ship
ping circles by the vigor with which
great improvements have been execut
ed. His ability as an engineer and an
executive head have been so well dem
