Wonderful Innovation In a Popular Fan
time Tomorrow's Great Attraction.
In these days of progress noreltr
succeeds novelty in such rapid se
quence, that it has to be something
quite unusual to attract anything be
yond mere momentary attention and
be talked for more than a day. Per
haps there could be nothing more
convincing that the Adam Forepaugh
shows as organized in this Columbian
year contain numerous innovations
and novelties than the fact that the
newspapers, everywhere the shows
are appearing, are unanimous in de
claring that their exhibition is noth
ing less than one constant, unvary
ing succession of novelties. Even all
the old-time, standard features of the
circus, museum, menagerie and hip
podrome are given in a manner and
upon a scale so vast t hat t hey are very
decided novelties in their way. Last
year these great shows presented what
up to that time was unquestionably
the most magnificent and elaborate
spectacular production ever seen in
this country. It was based upon a
theme of the greatest antiquity, but
was so transcendentally splendid that
it was pronounced by the press of the
east, in which section of the country
the shows exhibited only, to be the
most superb vision of splendor ever
seen in America. This year, how
ever. Manager MeCaddon has wisely
and opportunely changed the char
acter of the spectacular portion of
the exhibition by changing the theme
from one of ancient history to the
live, patriotic, loyal subject, the
American Revolution, and it will be
known as "The Scenes and Matties of
1776." Fancy alone can paint the
realistic manner in which the Amer
ican will be literally shown how his
glorious heritage of freedom was won
for him by the great heroes of the
revolution. It will be done so that
it will be understood by the child
and appreciated by the man. It
will be a living history of our conn
try such as lias never been so well
taught anil so easily learned before.
If there is any of the olden-time pa
triotism left in the American people
it will be surely aroused to the high
est pitch by this splendid exhibition.
And if the thousands of foreigners
who will certainly land upon the
shores of America this season see
this exhibition, then they will under
stand what kind of stuff the people
are made of who have made this coun
try in one century the largest, gran
dest, the richest, the most powerful
nation and country of all the earth,
our own. our native land, and to par
aphrase the poet, breathes there a
man with soul so dead that he will
not want, to see the glorious story of
the American revolution so splendid
ly told." This then is the greatest
of novelties. Heal pleasure and real
instruction, actually and effectually
combined. The Adam Forepaugh
shows will exhibit here tomorrow.
Careful and admirable in all their
appointments the Adam Forepaugh
shows are a delight to all beholders,
a remuneration to all patrons.
