It was this little advertisement, which
recently appeared in a copy of a popular
New York amusement weekly set In small
type and almost obscure by reason of the
many "heavy display ads" surrounding it
that caused an inquisitive newspaper man
to institute a search for the person whose
requirements were of such a peculiar na
ture. C. J. McCann was not to be located
without considerable difficulty, as Inquiry
proved that he was not a regular resident
of the city, but at last he was discovered in
the home of his sister-in-law near the City
Hospital one of the little frame cottages
so numerous in that neighborhood.
Although net a local resident at the pres
ent time, he proved to be a former Indian
apolis citizen who, as he explained, had
first started into the dime-museum and
sideshow business as a glass blower in the I
old museum which occupied the first floor
of the original Park Theater, eighteen years
ago, and which was managed at that time
by J. H. Sackett, a well-known showman
In those days. Many p-ople will remember
Professor Jupe, the glass blower, and his
assistants, who for several months formed
one of the leading features in the "curio
halls" of the place. McCann was one of
the assistants, and it was while filling that
engagement that he had his first taste of
the business, which he has pursued steadily
The life of the people making: up such
things as dime museums and sideshows is
more or less of a deep mystery to the gen
eral public; the "freaks" and performers
come and go with the circus or the street
carnival; the public pays Its dime to visit
them for a half hour or so, and then re
turns to the "real world" outside the curi
osity building or canvas tent with the feel
ing that the performers and freaks are left
behind in a world of their own. Rut the
people of the museum and sideshow live
in the greater world Just as ordinary hu
man beings do. despite the "curio plat
forms," the gaudy decorations and the tin
seled, bespangled costumes. It comes as a
shock when one chances to discover that
his fellow-traveler on the cars has arms
that are covered with Indigo pictures, or
when one learns that the quiet little woman
living next door once wore a tremendous
Albino wig and wrapped huge snakes
around her neck In the days before she
married and settled down to rear a family
of six children.
MR. M'CANN'S EXPERIENCES.
Mr. McCann talks entertainingly about
things of this kind. He seems to be a close
observer of hunmn nature, like most show
men, and he says that nothing amuses him
more than the dense Ignorance displayed
by the public concerning the lives of the
professional museum and sideshow people.
"Nine persons out of ten would imagine
that that little advertisement of mine in
the New York paper wouldn't be very pro
ductive in the way of returns," he said to
his visitor, "but just look at the amount
of answers I've received." And he drew
a large bunch of letters from his Icoat
pocket. "I have here applications from all
parts of this country, and one from Can
ada, from people that are anxious to secure
the engagements I am offering, and it will
be easy enough to reorganize my show.

Just let 'em know that they can get a job
there all right. I don't know what in the

of her she was in White's London Dime
Museum, in Chicago. There are quitf a
number of 'freaks and museum workers
claiming this city as their home. The two
fattest people In the country live here when
not exhibiting themselves on the 'curio
platforms,' and Indianapolis is the home
of two or three celebrated midgets. Some
how Indiana seems to supply more fat peo
ple to the museums and sideshows than
any other State, and it has become a fa
vorite Joke among the folks of the profes
sion to say that all fat people come from
GIANTS FROM THE WEST.
"Most of the giants come from the West
ern States. The tallest one of them all has
never as yet been connected with any
show, as his parents object to having him
placed on exhibition. They are foolish to
have such sensitive feelings on the subject,
as the young fellow cannot go out upon
the street without having everybody star
ing open-mouthed at him. and he might as
well be receiving a good salary in return
for the attention he attracts. Ills home
is in a small California town, but he is
often to be seen on the streets of San Fran
cisco. During the Spanish-American war
he became fired with a desire to enlist with
the California volunteers, but he couldn't
get Into the army to save his life. The re
cruiting officer refused to accept him for
three reasons first, because he would make
his companion soldiers look like pigmies
beside him; second, because special bedding
and other made-to-order things would have
to be furnished him, and lastly, because he
would make too sood a mark for the enemy
to shoot at. The young giant, who was
then only twenty years old, was almost
broken-hearted over his failure to get into
the service, and. in sheer disgust of things
in general, accepted my terms to go on the
road- as a living curiosity, but before I
could f?et him out of town his father
stepped In and put a stop to our negotia
tions. "If a person Is different from his fellow
men he might as well make the best of
things and get all the benefit to be had out
of the trick that nature has played upon
him. Traveling with a sideshow isn't- the
most enviable Job in the world, but there
are more decent people engaged In this sort
of life than the public imagines, and on
the better class of dime museum circuits
you will find plenty of good honest folks
that are compelled, through force of cir
cumstances, to mount the 'curio platforms.'
There is not nearly so much faking as
there used to be, and most of the 'freaks'
you see nowadays are genuine. I remem
ber the time when a showman could secure
almost any kind of so-called curiosity from
a man in New York that made a specialty
of preparing 'freaks' for exhibition, but I
don't think there is any business of that
kind In existence to-day. Of course, the
tattooed people haven't all been captured
by blood-thirsty savages who amused
themselves by decorating their captives
with Indigo pictures. There are 'artists' in
New York and Chicago that c&n tattoo
you from head to foot, and do the job more
thoroughly and in less time than any sav
ages could poFsibly do it.
CARNIVALS HELP FREAK BUSINESS.
"The popularity of the street fairs and
summer carnivals in small towns nowadays
has helped the business of the sideshow
man wonderfully, and there are more
amusement enterprises of this sort now
touring the country than ever before. For
awhile there was a craze for 'mystic
mazes,' 'Moorish theaters' and shows of
the kind that became famous during the
world's fair In Chicago, but there seems
to be a tendency now on the part of the
public to liberally patronize the old-time
sideshow, with its fat people, its tattooed
wonders, its Albinos, snake charmers,
Punch-and-Judles and other familiar fea
tures. As for the dime museums, tney are
more numerous than ever, and it's sur
prising that a city of the size of Indianapo
lis Is without one, as this town was always
considered a good dime museum place fif
teen and twenty years ago. Philadelphia
Is the best of the museum towns now.
There are more show places of the kind
there than In New York. New York comes
second in its number of museums, and Bos
ton comes in a good third. Don't for a
moment Imagine that the business of the
dime museum and sideshow man Is on the
wane. Just so long as there are people ae
slrous of seeing curlostlties there will be
plenty of showmen to stick to this old-fash
ioned style of gathering in the dimes."

The Wulschner Music Company have on
exhibition in their window a Chickering
piano which is perhaps the oldest instru
ment in America. It was manufactured
by the Chickering Company, of Boston, In

of Savannah, Georgia. Iviter it was sent
to a judge of the Supreme Court at
Chattanooga. During the battle of Look
out Mountain it was scarred by a stray
bullet-a mark which It still shows. The
instrument was confiscated by a Union
irmy officer and taken to St. Paul, sold to
a music dealer, out nnany purcnasea ny
a member of the judge's family, where It
remained until a few years ago. This
piano is a good example of the piano
