SOURCE OF THE STREAM.
Capt: Wlllatd ajiiasier to Make An
ether Journey to th Hetdwatrra of
Capt. Willard Glazier was a soldier
when war wita grim visage and dire front
stalked throu( h the land. Since tben he
has been an e tpiorer aad author, having
journeyed f ro n ocean to octan on horse-,
back and voynged in a canoe from the be
ginning of the Mississippi river to its ter
minus at the Gulf of Mexico; and the
works of bis i en form quite an extensive
and popular ssries. The expedition into
the wilds of Minnesota, nhicu took place
in 1881. was ciade with a view of deter
mining tbe true source of the "Father of
Waters." To Schoolcraft as the discov
erer and to Lake Itasca as tbe source for
50 years bad been tbe general award,
though many Indians denied the claim
and no verification mean while bad been
With a few companions and Indian
guides he made the trip, and it resulted in
the discovery of a lake six miles above
Itasca, nearly oval in shape and a mile
and a half in longest diameter. This oc
curred July 22, 1881; and in honor of the
chief his comaanions named tbe little
sheet of water Lake Glazier. It is con
nected with Iusca by a rivulet, and is fed
by three bojjgy streams, originating in
springs issuing from sandhills. Since
tbe date mentioned, s there has been a
contention corcerning tbe reality of this
Now Capt. Glazier intends revisitmg
the headwaten of tbe great river with
the view of mi.king the second journey
to that region, one mainly to obtain
sketches and photographs of tcenery
around the birth-place of America's re
nowned and ct ntraT river, and to com
pletely verify bis position heretofore
taken. Some attention, also, will be
given to the botany, zoology and geology
of the district and information gathered
concerning tributaries to the stream be
tween lake Itaca and Bsrcidji. Besides
a photographer and artist a few gentle
men will accompany the captain, making
it the occasion of their summer outiug
all of them doubtless more or less inter
ested in the ot jects of the trip, particu
larly the question of the true source of
the mighty rivjr, and desirous of seeing
and judging for themselves of the cor
rectness of the asserted geographical fact.
The Forepansh Shsnt
What is promised to be the largest and
handsomest th ng ever seen upon the
streets of this or any other city, in the
way of a circus parade, will bo seen on
Tuesday next when tbe Adam Forepaugn
shows will mae their free public display
of procession il splendor. It will, of
course, move through the principal
streets where overhead wires are high
enough to allow the great tableau cars to
Something exceptionally great and
grand in the line of tented exhibitions
may be confidently expected of the Adam
Forepaugb shows. There has never been
any dispute of the fact that Adam Fore
piugh'a show property has always been
the finest and costliest in this country. It
was the pride of toe famous showman
that his cages, wagons, tableaux cars,
chariots, etc., were the most completely
built and deco'a;ei of any used in tbe
show business. He insisted upon them
being as finely finished as the finest pri
vate carriage. No other showman had
ever such fine horses or so many of
them. His menagerie, as a
matter of incontrovertible fact, was
alwaj a the finest traveling collection of
animals, and Lis herd of elephaats, in
both numbers and size, and in training,
was without an equal at any time. And
above everything else he prized the fact
that his came was a very synonym for
solidity, genuineness and integrity, and
it was so rtgai Jed by the public. But be
went tbe way of all flesh after a brief ill
ness. When he realized that his last
tcur on earth was made, his one wish
was that his great show should continue
bis name sti.l live. There was but one
man who had ".he ability, tbe experience
and tbe capital necessary to keep the
property intact, and indissolubly with it
the name of Forepaugb, and that was
James E. Co:per. And so the great
Adam Forepaugh shows passed into his
hands in its entirety. Not only the prop
erty remains, bit many additions thereto
bave been made by Mr. Cooper during
the past winter.
m vtr since his boyhood, Adam Fore
paueb's only son, Adam, Jr., was the
ruling spirit in the trained animal and
circus departments of the Forepaugh
shows. As a 'rainer of elephants, horses
and other animals, young Foiepaugh is a
phenomenon. Among show people he is
generally it might be said universally,
as bis fame is world-wide regarded as
Dever having had an eqnal is the hand
ling of those animals. His talent is by
no meats conf ned to animal training for
he is tbe inventor of more arenic novel
ties than any ether man liviag. He was
tbe first equestrian director to go to
Europe and bring back with him the
finest performers to be found in the eir
cuses of Europe, and every large Euro
pean city has i.s permanent circus. He
is still the equestrian director of the Adam
Forepaugh ehiwB, just as he was for
years during his father's life, so that the
shows are the same in every material
essential. Mr. Cooper, however, has in
troduced many new ideas into the shows,
most of them based upon tbe plan of mak
ing the .circus fo popular an institution
that one visit a vear is not sufficient, but,
rather, there ft ould be permanent cir
cuses in this country as will as in

perfection, and will soon be up to as
high a standard as that attained by any
other road in the country . Every car
that goes into tbe shops now, no matter
how old nor what repairs are necessary,
U equipped with both air brakes aud au
tomatic couplers before beiog turned out.
All engines sent in for repairs are also
fitted out with air brakes before being
sent out on the road agAin. The 500 box
cars which are now being built will all be
equipped with air brakes, automatic
couplers and steel brake beams, while the
10 new engines ordered this week will
have all the latest improvements and will
be among the most powerful on western
roads. Cedar Hpids Gazette
