rand t Tented Knterprlxe.
An evenl that will stir the juvenile
heart hereabouts is the coming of the
Forepautfh and "Wild West" combirfed
shows, which exhibit at Rock Island,
Thursday, Aug. 1st. This Tear's show is
said to be the largest and finest that Ad
am Forepa lgh has ever been identified
with. There are more "features," more
"sensations " more "out-oNthe-cora-tuon"
acts, and undoubtedly a greater
consequent expense than has ever before
tx en incurred by the great showman, la
rait ring to the love for the sports and
"spangled t-plemlor" of te circus arena
that seems lo be inherent in human na
ture, only the best in all departments has
been selected, and the result is perhaps
the most remarkable aggregation of per
formers, human and brute, that has ever
been gathered together under one mans
Those who delight in the sensational
and realistic will have much to enthuse
over in Manager Forepaugh's presenta
tion of the historical "Wild West" exhi
bition, wit a its daring scouts, crack
shots, rollicking cowboys, bucking bron
chos, buffal , elk, and other denizens of
the plains and mountains.
The marvelous power that Adam Fore
paugb, Jr., exercises over the lower ani,
mala has a striking illustration in two
features introduced to the public for the
first time this season his intrepid and
exciting 30- horse act, and his trapez e
leaping pony, "Eclipse" and which have
created a fi rore wherever the show has
appeared. Scarcely less wonderful is
said to be the performances of the young
trainer's giat herd of elephants, who
dance, marc h, form pyramids, and, in
fact, do everything that any human being
can do, except talk. The "circus
proper," given in two rings and on a big
central stage, is said to fairly blaze with
novel and meteoric attractions, and the
hippodrome races possess all the stirring
realism of trie race track scenes at Sara
toga and Lr ng Branch.

Hear what Be says:
I have been a practical druggist in
Tyler for a number of years, and in that
time have had occasion to examine, try,
and notice the effect of nearly all the
highly recommended preparations or pat
ent medicines on the market, and as I
have suffered untold misery myself, the
past number of years, from a severe form
of inflammatory rheumatism, and could
find nothing to cure or relieve me, I had
almost drawn a conclusion that all pat
ent medicines were more or less frauds
until about one year ago, I was in
duced ly a friend now living in Tyler, to
try a preparation known as 3 B, or Bo
tanic Blood Balm, and after a long per
suasion on his part, I finally made up
my mind to make one more effort to- rid
myself of the terrible affliction; and it
now affords me the greatest pleasure of
my life to state to the citizens of Smith
county that I am entirely cured, with no
traces of the disease left, and all effected
by the magic healing properties of B B.
B., which I consider the grandest, purest
and most powerful blood remedy known
toman. I have been subject to ins
flammatory attacks since ten years of
age, and up to the present time have had
four. The last spell came on me in
November, 1885, over a year
ago, at which time I was
confined to my bed for eight weeks, pass
ing the nights in misery, with no sleep
except when produced by narcotics and
various opiates. The week previous to
using B. B. B. up to that time I had only
eaten six metis, and could scarlely sit up
without support; but after using three
bottles I was able to relish m; meals and
to walk up town, and after six bottles
had been used, thank heaven, I was en
tirely cured, and not the slightest pain
felt since that time. When I returned to
business in February, my weight was 145
pounds, but gradually increased until my
regular weight was again attained, 210
pounds. The noticeable fact in what I
have so cheerfully stated is, that this un
paralleled and. remarkable discovery, B.
B. B. , cured me in mid winter, at the
very time my sufferings and misery were
the greatest. I take it on myself as a
practical druggist to heartily, cheerfully,
as well as conscientiously, recommend
this glorious blood remedy to all sufferers
of rheumatism or blood trouhles, and not
only myself, hut the firm of McKay &
Adams, who hnndle it, will cheerfully in
dorse its superior merits.
