The Adam Forspkagh show is with us.
Wbo in Rock Island does net realizs
thai fact by this time? The great tented
aggregation ot wonders and curiosities is
Ruck Island's for a day. The advent of
an immense modern show such as Adam
Forepaugh'g is an event awaken
ing excitement in every household, es
pecially where abides the element of the
rising generation. The arrival of the
numerous railway trains required to
transport the Adam Eorepaugh shows,
no matter at what hour, is the signal for
hundreds to flock at the unloading point.
Among these the famous small boy pre
dominates. He overruns the cars, gets
iu ice way of the railway officials and
anves good-natured Judd Webb, who has
charge of the show trains, almost dis
tracted. Equally as large numbers of peo
ple watch the erection of the mam
moth canvas . tents; they watcn
with open-mouthed amazement at
the rapid strokes of the canvass
men as they drive the stakes that are nec
essary to uphold the structure. Mr.
Kelly, who controls this department,
moves quietly about giving orders in a
language known only to .those who ' are
conversant with the business. In the
meantime fcupt. Hervey Barnum is di
recting the disposition of the cages, char
iots and floats that are to constitute the
parade. S:on the btll call the laborers to
refreshments. What an appetite they
have. Lnng lines of waiters ara kepi
busy bringing great plates loaded with
solid food. Three square meals aie
served to the 800 employes ot the show.
The parade fol.ows breakfast, then lunch,
after which comes the show, then dinner.
The niat show follows, tttea the entire
exhibition is loaded onto the cars. A
iiiubt run of an v where from 60 to 150
tunes, and again the same scene is re'
pealed, another city giving it a royai re
Jamea E. Cooper, proprietor of the
Forepaun shows since the demise of the
f mo us founder, travels with it and has
hail constructed for himself a beautiful

hjrxe as it is possible to obtain. At one
eni i6 me observation section, nest

His daugtiers' room adjo.ns. Totn
cymes Mr. Cooper's office and library.
Next ii Mrs. Cooper's room superbly
titled. Manager J. T. McCaddon has
his apartment and tffice. The dining
room, kitchen and servants' room are all
complete with every modern improve
ment. A cellar extends beneath the car
which can be entered without going out
Bide. The bath room is equally com
plete and all the sanitary arrangements
are perfection. This car Mr. Cooper de
signed himself, and it was manufactured
ft his own railway shops under the super
vision of Messrs. Dan Taylor and J.
The performers' cars are also mode's of
comfort, .having comfortable staterooms,
lavatories, and being provided with all
the latest safety appliances. The stock
cars are also far above the average, each
horse being furnished with large mangers,
which carry a day's supply of food for
each horse. The pony car was also de
signed by Mr. Cooper and gives a perfect
palace for these pets. It also has 6tae
rooms and accommodations for the
groom9. The best of ventilation is sup
plied while screens prevent the entrance
But to the ereat exhibition and its
various attractive features. First ot theBe
was of course the parade, and which it may
be truthfully said was a spectacle which
gaye intense satisfaction to the many
thousands that thronged the route of the
procession. Mounted buglers heralded
the approach. Then cume a drum ma
j tr who awoke enthusiasm by the celerity
with which be handled his baton. The
famous Q laker City drum and fife corps
followed; right behind rode a hundred
mounted members of the company
dressed to represent the familiar old Eng.
lish scene entitled "Coming to the Fox
Hunt." The American band came next,
followed by the golden chariot of Nep
tune. The children's portion ot the pa
rade was under the guidance of Santa
Clause, wbo drove his reindeers with
evident pride. Ponies and deminutive
mules drew beautiful allegorical cars;
open dens of wild animals, with their
trainers seated in their midst, attracted
universal attention. The hippodrome
section showed the lady and gentlemen
iockeys, splendid racing stock, .Roman
standing racers and beautiful four-horse
chariots. Then there was the
golden tableau barge of Cleopa
tra. Attendants and slaves rode the
elephants, camels and dromedaries. The
Indians, cowboys and scouts, Capt Bogar
dus and his three sons, well known as
expert shots, have charge of this depart
ment A calliope which played intelligi
ble tunes brought up the rear.
Within the tents, which are pitched in
the open field east of Thirty-eighth
street, one continued scene of interest and
instruction-is preserved. Tie nenagerie
is complete ia specimens of wild beasts.
among which are some that hive never
before been exhibited in this country. In
the museum department is a complete
Indian encampment with curiosities. . A
large number of elephants ranee through
the centre of the menagerie and attract
In the circus arena the Drozramme is

tree this afternoon was an imposing one.
tbe first spectacle being a military one
called the R-d Hus-art. and recalling pic
tu res of tbe Arabiaa XightB. ' : the great
cavalcade was one of the most gorgeous
and imposing that could be conceived.
In the ifhort period of founteen minutes a
complete "Wild West" was 'shown where
Capt. Bog.rdus and his sons did some
expert rifls sboeiiog. Indians, half
breed, cowoovs and scouts illustrated
scenes of frontier life, closing with the
attack upon the Deadwood coach. The
main feature, however, was the per
formance of Colonel Edgar Daniel Boone
and his trained lions. Adam Forepaugh,
Jr., and his herd of trained e'ephants,
the arenic and equine feats, and the vari
ous special features are first-class, the
great caravan from one end to the other
being unexcelled, while in many respects
it exceeds in excellence anything that has
been in R ck Island before.

This morning Peter Heverlins whose
special duty it is to guard fipenc.r square,
swore out a warrant for the arreBt of Jim
Lane charging bim with trespass. Jim in
possessed of an inborn irresistible pro
pensity for things oderous. A nose efv
in one of Commissioner Jackson's fliwe:
beds atlrscted Jim's fancy and he plucked
it. Now he is in trouble. It the first of
fense of tbe kind, be it said to tbe credit
of the people of this city, nevertheless it
is one that should not pass unnoticed,
and a repetition should be severely dealt

As the slang phrase goes, the man up i
in a balloon isn't in it.
This may be true in one sense of the
term, but in another perhaps, it is not so
mucn so. At any rare so says Aeronaut
W. A. Gould, who made the leap at the
watch tower Sunday afternoon.
"You have no idea of what a de
hgbful ride it is ascending into
tbe aerial regions," Mr. Gould
said this morcios, "but wnen you cut
loose atd get started down then it's
diSerent. At first vou shoot down like a
meteor so q rcSlv you bardly resi ze it.
Then the purachute opens and you are
jerked up with a snap. You don't have
lime to regain your e.f possession until
the descent becomes more gradual, and
from this time tbe experience is more en
livable. I: is all over in a minute or
two, but in that small space of time the
man who gets oft the earth in a balloon
and comes down hanging to a para
chute has gone tbroua an crdeal that
has left ai effect upon his memory.
"Take it Sunday, for instance. I tell
you what I got a lovely view of the
tnwer and surroundings as I went up.
Anyone on the ground thought that there
were a great many people there.' A man
up iu a balloon knew it- The top of that
tower was a black mass of humanity ; I
never saw a larger crowd, and my disap
pointment was all the greater on that ac
count that I could not have given a bet
ter exhibition. People are very ap to
misjudge the opportunities of an aero
naut. Tbey don't know the difference
between a difficult jump and an easy
one. That leap of mine Sunday was tbe
most dangerous I ever took. If I had
been up 1.000 to 1.500 feet, I would have
had no trouble. A jump from the clouds
gives the parachute more chance to open
and on this alone the parachute leaper
depends to stay the force of his fall. On
the way tbe psr. chute works, depends
the man's life who hangs to it. Sunday I
went up as high as the balloon did and
jumped. If it had gone higher I would
have deferred tbe leap and it would have
been much safer. But I saw the balloon
was settling. I had one or two alterna
tives and I had to decide quickly either
to stay with the balloon and disappoint
tbemultiiud-; or jump. I took myebances
and cut loose, and here lam with a stiff leg
in consequence. It is a wonder I have
not two broken legs or a broken neck."
Tbe board of supervisors met in regu
lar July session yesterday afternoon at 2
o'clock, all being present except Supervi
sor Dailey. Nothing of importance was
done yesterday afternoon, and adjourn
ment was taken until 9 o'clock this morn
ing, when in compliance with the section
in the new election law, which provides
that it be printed in the leading
paper of each political party was
presented, and adopted almost
unanimously, providing that it be given
to tbe Rock Island Abous and Moline
Dispatch. Supervisor Ludolph offered
an amendment providing that the
Union be substituted for the Moline Dis
patch, but tbe amendment was lost and it
was accordingly given to tbe two first
mentioned. The report of the poor
farm committee was then read and ac
cepted, and the board decided to visit the
poor fara in a body tomorrow.
