Tbe stupendous and magnificent his
torical and dramatic spectacle, bearing
tbe above title, and which is this season
so appropriately presented as an addition
to the many other most meritorious,
marvelous and instructive attractions of
tbe Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on
Earth, is not in us scope and purpose a
play, in the ordinary acceptation of the
term, but rather a most striking and real
istic object lesson in that portion of an
cient history connected witu the wars of
Granada and Columbus's voyage and dis
covery, and a masterly and thoroughly
accurate reproduction or the innuinp
scenes and incidents connected there
with. Months were spent studying the
historical documents in the archives of
Europe, and seeking old prints and
paintings, and inspecting all objects and
material in any way reiatirg to
the subject and era in which the
sceues of the spectacle are laid, and
in gathering a wealth of detail concern
ing the costumes, weapons and customs
of that place. Every appliance of photo
graphic art was employed and elaborate
plans and drawings made Tor tne guid
ance of the most thoroughly competent
architects, modelers, sc.nic artists and
c8tumers, resulting in a wondrously im
pressive revelation of the early struggles,
trials, voyages and final triumphs of tbe
great discoverer, as well as accurate re
productions of some of the old cities of
Spain, with their palaces, gates, draw
bridges and battlements, and the firms,
accoutrements and manner of warfare of
tbe most glorious epoch in Spanish his
tory. For the presentation of this grand
series of living tableaux $75,000 worth
of scenery is required, a stge 450 feut in
length. 1.200 characters together with
wild beasts and horses and $250,000
worth of armor, weapons, trappings and
devices of the most historically correct
designs and expensive material, besides
the world's best musical composers and
terpsicbore n and orchestral directors.
Viewed merelv as a scenic and
living study, and entirely apart
from its splendid pageants, im
pressive spectacles and displays, games
tournaments, contests and realistic corn-
bits, it offers a wealth of practical
knowledge and permanent information
far bevot-d the means of ordinary in
st ruction, and calculated to grandly aud
forcibly impress nnon the mind of every
beholder the heroism of the nrt discov
tries of the new world. This truly great
and r-markable uttecu.culsr produclion is
presented as sn addition to all the multi
tude of marvelous wonders in the Great -
st Show on Erth. its two menageries
triple cirefs in three rings upon two ele
vated stages, and ihe wonderful feats in
midair and in the hippodrome, and taken
in its vas', entirety renders it just exactly
what the title suggests The Greatest
Show on Enrth. It will be here in its
undivided greatness at Columbian park
next Saturday, with tt:e tremeud ius new

The Argus of last week's issue makes
no mistake in recommending Adam
Stamm as a first class man for the nomi
nation for circuit clerk From our per
sonal acquaintance with Mr Stamm, we
think no better man for the nomination
can be found no one who will add more
strength to our ticket.
We recently saw what was much val
ued oy tbe possesoron account of its age
a copy of tbe W kkkly Argus of April
1857. Looking over its pages one ex
periences a peculiar interest in the dis
cussions on questions on which the peo
ples' minds at that time so widely dif
fered. A highly enjoyable social, under tbe
auspices of the young people's society of
the Presbyterian church, . was given on
Friday evening last at tbe spacious home
of Mr. and Mrs. William Edgington. To
say that all bid an excellent time is to
put the matter mildly, as nothing was
left undone by tboce in charge which
mighc conduce to the pleasure of the oc
casion. Newspapers Endorse.

remedies. Hall's Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on the blood

Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this country for years; and is a regular
prescription. It is composed of the het
tonics known, combined with the best

catarrh. Send for testimonials free.
