Rlngllng Bros. World's Gi tatest Show
to be There Oct. 26.
Rlngllng Brothers' World's Greatest
shows will, on October 26th give two
performances in Spartanburg.
This will be the only opportunity
this year of seeing the best of all
circus entertainments. This Is the
show that amzed New York City with
Its European company of actors, and
Its extensive new menagerie. Its pa
rade is the longest ana most superb
spectacle that ever passed through the
streets of any city o?i earth. On April
2, 1883, the five brothers gave their
first performance In their honie town.
Baraboo, Win., on the public square.
They made thel rown tent and their
own ring properties, 'i lie audience sat
on planks borrowed from a lumber
yard. They had but one horse. Prom
that little one-ring affair to their pres
ent stupendous organization the hls
tor of the Rlngllng Brothers reads like
a fairy tale. They began with noth
ing. They now own the greatest amuse
ment enterprise In all history.
The reason of their success Is no
secret, li is a peculiar comhlntulnii
of the right kind of talent and a poli
cy of uprightness In dealing with the
public. Even during its early days :t
was a good show. It was small, hut
it was a nearnest endeavor. Without
capital the line young men struggled
against the bitterest opposition. They
won the confidence of the public, nnd
have always kept It heeiuiso Micy have
always deserved It. A very few years
after that first performance their riv
als began to sit up and take serious
notice when mention of the Rlngllng
Brothers was made. They realized
they had an opposing force to compete
with that had come to stay. In a few
years more the Rlngllng show took
first place among the tent shows of
America, There is where it will al
ways stay. It has become the leader
In the rat of entortainmont,
Among the many European features
offered this yoar are the Sohumun
horses from the Circus Schumuu at
Berlin, Scheveninxon and Frankfort.
Albert Sehuman, as a traiser of hord
es, Is the most wonderful man in his
tory, lie has made ten millions of dol
lars exhibiting the animals he has
trained. Tourists travel many miles
out of their way to visit his Institu
tions In Germany. There are fifteen
animals in his act. They enter the
arena concealed in large beer barrels
plied on an Immense brewery wagon.
They are not discovered by the audi
ence until the kick the heads out of
the barrels and jump Into the ring.
They begin their act by pulling the
bungs from kegs, drawing a beer-like
fluid from the tap and drinking It from
big glasses. They roll each other
around in barrels. They waltz In
time to music. They skip the rope and
smoke pipes. From the beginning to
the end of their act they remain stand
ing on their hind feet.
Another great act is presented by
the Saxon trio of the world's strongest
men. Two of them rorm the pillars
of a bridge over which passes an an.
tomoblle with six passengers. Still
other novel and great acts are present
ed by the Lorch family of acrobats,
from Germany.?the great Alexis fam
ily of aerlalists, Robledlllo, the Span
ish wizard of the w:re, the Dutton
family of riders, and the greatest com
pany of clowns In the world. The
new parade Is a marvel of beauty. The
new menagerie is a complete collec
tion of animals.
