Almost Evcryt Silnj; Included in the 4-law
What a tremendous list of attrac
tions is offered by the Adam Fore
paugh shows, to be sure! It includes
a circus, a menagerie, a museum, an
aviary, a hippodrome and the splen
did glories of the sublime, historical
representation of the scenes and bat
tles of 177(i the American revolu
tion. Such a list is almost stagger
ing to ordinary comprehension. Cer
tainly nothing1 approaching it in
magnificence and grandeur has ever
before been seen in either America or
Europe. Over 200 of the highest
skilled, best trained and most daring
of all'performers in a circus, includ
ing t'ue wild warrior Cossacks of the
czar, the tirst of their race to be seen
in America; over 200 rare wild
beasts constituting a veritable com
pendium of natural history; dozens
of the rarest of nature's marvels aTid
wildest fancies in animal existence in
the museum; a college of ornithol
ogical wonders in the aviary; more
than a score of daring, thrilling,
comical and novel races in the hippo
drome, and the entire strength of t he
shows 1,'HO people in the repre
sentation of the revolutionary war;
all forming a monstrous aggregation
the like of which has never before
been seen, and all is placed within
easy reach of the masses at a trifling
cost of only t) cents. Truly this is
an age of marvels, and one wonders
how much larger circus shows can be
made. It was generally supposed
that the limit of immensity had been
reached when the great shows were
here last, but in view of their grand
eur this year there seems to be no
limit to the expansive magnificence
of the Adam Forepaugh shows. Thev
will exhibit here on Saturdav, Aug. 5.
