A full half mile of snow-white dogs and ponies, neatly cropped, combed and .trim med, the former sitting saucily upright in miniature red and gold chariots, drawn by a hundred equine Shetland beauties, is what the Gentry Bros, showed the thou sands of parents and children who lined the downtown streets to witness this morning's parade. But that was not all: There was a great herd of elephants from and weighed but:.!1 pounds, lesterday the midget Shetland tipped the scales at 23 pound and was frisking marrlly about under cages, guy ropes and the heel of hi larger associates. No equine annals show the existence of a pony of such di minutive proportions, and Little "Clo" is the envy of ail showmen. The youngster, being of such tend? years and siz Is not allowed to take pnrt in the parades, but Is carefully guarded a.nd rides in a special car with its mother, "Thimble," herself the smallest of tha actor ponies. The famous Kltamura family of RnrI Japanese entertainers were astride dapper Shetlands in the parade and were the sub ject of much admiration and interest. Little "Cinco." the youngest of the fam ily, is said to be the smallest and most Press Agent Baker and the Smallest Pony In the World. far-off Singapore: lowly camels, beautiful specimens of their race, from Siberia: a hundred screeching monkeys from Bra zilian jungles, and secred cattle from mysterious Thibet. All but the latter are actors, and a wonderful four-footed fam ily it was. They reached Topeka aarly Sunday morning and left their cushioned quarters on the show train with a leap and a bound, glad to breathe the cool morning air after their-heated period of the past few days. After being comfortably housed in the big white tents at Jefferson and Ninth streets, the great animal family was vis ited by throngs of admirers all day long, for the Gentry, as usual, raised the Bide walls and gave the public free access. Little "Cloquet," the tiniest pony, per haps, in existence was the nucleus of a throng of children and was the object cf continual pattmg. "Clo" is but five weeks old and at birth stood but 14 Inches high, wonderful Japanese acrobat living. He rode in a tiny two-wheeled rig and wor ; "the smile that won't come off." This af ternoon the tents are crowded with thps ' who have waited for a circus wnU-h they can enjoy in it totality, an nutti in the ' Gentry show. This time the famous show- ' men have brought the big eastern No. 1 , exhibition, greater and grander than be--fore. The evening performance begins at 8 o'clock. Storm Bound Since Friday.
