The world's most skillful scenic ar
tists, COStlimors, property builders,
chorus directors and stage managers
wore engaged to mount the produc
tion. A stage bigger than a hundred
ordinary theatres was built and made
portable so that it can be conveyed
from town to town and erected each
day In the main tent. The circus pro
prietors have thus made it possible
for those who live in contributory
towns, even farmers and their fami
lies, to see the magnificent wordless
play that is an Immense attraction in
the largest cities. It Is enacted with
a cast of 1,250 actors, a grand opera
? horns, an orchestra of 100 soloists,
a ballet of 350 dancing girls, 650
horses, live herds of elephants, cara
vans of camels, and a tralnload of
special devices, costumes, and scenery
and electrical mechanism for produc
ing stielt effects as lightning, thunder,
sand storms on the desert, volcanoes
in action, sunrise. Hoods, and mirages.
The realism of the scenery is per

in the day of l'toleinys. The Streets
