AIN'T YOU PROUD?
You Are n American and Ought to be
GId or It.
Never before has an institution
claiming to be representative Ameri
can so well established its claim as
has the great . Adam Forepaugh
shows,' in this year's exhibition.
Even the very ar nouncements of the
shows breathe the air of patriotism.
The enormous lithographic posters,
and the couriers, programs and other
small advertising bills are designed
in patriotic forms of expression. All
the symbols of American independ
ence and liberty are employed the
shield, the banner, the star, the
! eagle, the flag, all emblems of lioer
j ty: every form of the cross, emble
j malic of religion, is used by the
! groat shows, to c til attention to the
I fact that the one great feature of the
J shows this season, in addition to the
J well-known standard features of the
(circus, menagerie, hippodrome, mu
seum, etc.. is a splendid and com
plete series of dramatic representa
tions of the var which resulted in
American independence and made
our beloved conn: ry the land ef the
free and the home of the brave. It
cannot be possible that a patriotic
people will fail to appreciate the
spirit that prompts this intensely in
teresting and instructive exhibition.
It will be given here on Saturday of
this week, and it will be a matter of
the greatest surprise if the people do
not turn out en m isse, to use a par
donable expression from the French,
to see it and pre perly reward its
patriotic projector. Manager J. T.

LAW THAT IS QUEER.
A Decision WTiicfc Practically Make a Nona
i de Plume Common Propertjk
A very interesting claim, in which
every author who uses a signature is
more or less concerned, was ignomini
onsly dismissed by Judge Lacombe in
the United States circuit court. As I
understand it, a mediocre book was pub
lished in this city purporting to have been
written by Alan Dale, thenom de plume
of one of the brightest and cleverest of
New York's younger literary men. As a
matter of fact, Mr. Cohen (Alan Dale)
di'l not write the book, and when he
hearl of its publication protested against
the use of his name. Protest being un
availing, through his counselor. Mr.
Steckler, he sued the publisher, claiming
$1,000 damages. After hearing Mr. Co- J
hen s testimony. Judge Lacombe virtu
ally informed the jury that there was no
necessity of further evidence, as it could
not be shown that the plaintifFs salary
on a daily paper in this city had been de
creased by reason of the publication, or
that he had had any subsequent trouble
That may be law; it's not justice.
Mr. Cohen could have proved by
George Alfred Townsend, A. C. Wheel
er, Samuel L. Clemens and other writers
Of rational repute that the signatures
over which they are known to the world
of readers Gath, Nym Crinkle, Mark
Twain mean a fortune, and that any
use of those signatures by other parties
was not only an abuse but a traverse of
equity, dishonest and cruel. I can't un
derstand Lacombe's action in the mat
ter. It virtually says to irresponsible
publishers: "Go ahead, publish what
you please, lyingly announce that the
matter is written by any author whose
name you may prefer. He has no rem
edy unless he can prove that he has lost
an engagement or is in disfavor with the
I wonder how Lacombe would like to
see decisions, purporting to have been
rendered by him, signed with his name,
circulated in the community. And I
also wonder whe-ther it ever entered his
somewhat interesting mind that it is ad
visable to mnlct thieves, liars and bear
ers of false witness, for the protection of
the community in general and of men
as well to whom reputation is worth
much more money than the circuit
court could possibly collect Joseph
Howard in New York Recorder.
Play Better Than Gymnastics.
The pre-eminently recreative exercise
is play. This natural gymnastics brings
with it an attraction that animates the
most indifferent and gives inspiration to
the most phlegmatic. And what a con
trast there is between pnpils exercising
in play and those ujjon whom syste
matic gymnastics are imposed between
English school children, for example, and
