"Say. mamma, you ought to havegone. Tou
know pop took *r.e. He said he was Just
doing it for p.eommodation, but I think he
enjoyed hi-aself all rlgiht. He liked the
bareback ladies best. Say. there was one
of thrm that was pretty. But I liked the
clowns. There was all sorts of 'em. There
was a lot of them just like the pictures In
the comic supplements and a lot of others.
One of them had a base ball bat with gunpowder
in the end of it, and he hit another
old fat clown In the stomach and it went
off. the bat did, and the clown rolled over
In the hay. There wa? lots of hay, and
the clowns rolled all over in It.
"I think the best bareback riding was a
lot of those clowns we saw in the parade
that rode on mules. First they rode on one
end of them and then they rode on the
other end. and then the mules ran away
and the clowns ran after them and held
onto their tails and got trampled a'.l over.
Say. It was great. And there was a man
that stood on his head on a wire up in the
air and another man that stood on his head
and held on wlti'i his teeth to a little stick
about as big round as a quartet. ind beat
a tambourine with his hands. And, oh.
there was another man in yellow that stood
on his head and his hands and on one arm
and walked around on his hands same a-s
if they were his feet. And he had two little
(Jogs, little teensy dogs, and one of them
sit tip on tiie bark of <rs neck with his
paws folded when the man stood on his
head. I asked him afterward if he wouldn't
sell tiie littlest dog. but he laughed, and
said he had only had the little dog two

Fighting the Flames.
"And then they had a whole house inside
of the ti nt. and the house burned up. Gee,
it was a (ire. There wore people at the upstairs
windows that couldn't s t out. and
the firemen came with the liftie lail lers
with hooks on them, and they hooke.l them
Into one window, and th;n climbed t:p and
hooked tliem into an;>th> r. and then climbed
tip and hooked them on the roof. And the
firemen carried the peo;ile down the ladders
and slid down ropes, and there was
one old woman that jumped out of an upstairs
window arid fell in a big net. And
then two old men sot to fighting, and the
control wason came out and the policemen
put them in. and as fast as they put one in
the other one pot out. and they had to chase
him anil nnt 1,1m in an/1 t l,nn m
would get out. And then there were the
bears. They sat on stools and drank out
of bottles and rode a bicycle, at least a
bicycle that had three wheels, and they had
a little black pony in wifh them that
turned a merry-go-round.
Seals That Are Talented.
"And they had seals that playejl ball and
balanced sticks on their noses, and had
torches on fire at both ends that they
pitched up in the air. And you ought to
have seen the jockey race! Gee, they went!
It was just like a real horse race out at
Benning, only not so big. and they went
round more times. And they had a whole
lot of people up in the top of the tent on
trapeezes. and one lot had red cloth?s and
the other had pink, and they flew around
in the air. and sometimes they were on the
trapeezes. and some of tlie time they were
iust flying around in the air, just like flying
squirrels. Hut, gee, you ought to have seen
those jockeys race. And then the people on
the trapeezi- all gut through and came tumbling
down In the net. blop, blop, and
bounced up In the air again.
"And there was a long gentleman who
folded himself all up and got inside of a
table and an old clown came around and
put a pack of firecrackers in th> table and
blew him out. And a lot of people rode on
bicycles and one woman rode a bicycle
across a long wire rope and a lot of girls
and boys got up on a little silver wire and
danc s Just like they were on the ground,
it was Just like me walking on top of a
feme, only better. And those jockeys, gee,
but you ought to have seen 'em.
"And then they had a lot of animals out
in in*' in>ni aoor leni, a lot 01 nine lions
like kittens. only bigger than cats, and
some more lions like big setter dogs and
llit-n a lot of great liig lions that hollered.
And there were hears and monkeys and
deers and a great hip liippopotamus that
looked like lie was made out of India rubber.
but he wasn t because lie breathed, and
camels and a great big giraffe that they
couldn't find any cage big enough for, so
they had him done up in a tennis net. And
the elephants were out there, too, and one
of them went into a boy's pocket after
something to eat. and 1 scratched their
noses and they liked it. And, gee, you
ougin to have seen those Jockeys."
Courtesy is Noticeable.
The foregoing is an account of the Forepa
ugh & Sells big circus, actually given
by one of the "kids" who attended yesterday.
It is accurate r.nd indicates the
Impression the circus made on the little
folks; for whose exclusive entertainment It
was erroneosul.v supposed to be provided.
As a matter of fact, while the Kttle folk
were out In large numbers, they liarrtly had
a working majority in the immense crowd
under the immense canvas. There were
more grown-up little folks than there were
little folks and they seemed to enjoy the
show equally well. The arrangements for
handling the crowd were unquestionably
the best""ever noted at a circus in Washington.
and one of the most noticeable things
was the courtesy shown by the attendants
and the fact Ujat a visitor felt that he was
being taken care of and not merely allowed
to be in t..e big tent on the ?ulf;ranre
of a lot of employes who were on the
lookout for a chance to act as bouncers.
A large and distinguished crowd attended
both the afternoon and the evening shows.

there and one of the most interested and

GUESTS OF GOLDENBERG'S.
Employes of "the Dependable Store"'
Attend the Circus.
A circus party of the cash boys and girls, I
bundle wrappers, stock clerks and others
of the younger folks employed at Goldenberg's
occurred last evening. The little
people were each served with luncheon and
later taken to the circus grounds from the
store in sight-seeing automobiles. About
took advantage of the opportunity to
visit the big show. Shortly before tihe closing
hour at the store yesterda^ afternoon
the boys and girls were ushered into the
dining 'oora at the store. It has been an
| annual c istom for years for the young em
pioyes ic? kv iij nit: i-irvus hi me expense
of the house of Goldenberg, and as the
motto of the management Is to make the
establishment "the dependable store," tiie
little ones always feel Mire that they will
see the circus and have a jolly, good time
while there under the best advantages. Dr.
Lewis was on hand to see that the children
got along all right. With the ringing of j
the big gong at fi o'clock more than half
of the children had been allowed to leave
their work and had finished Uie rep:ist
placed before them. When they took their
places In the large automobiles they found
that Dr. Lewis and his other associates
?r,A>i lio OA?*i m ittAO hnvlntr Ktini i*-?
had provided a bountiful supply of peanuts,
and on the way to the circus grounds they
ate and were merry. When the cars reached
the grounds the little guests were taken to
Bee all of the sights, and between admiring
the monkeys, lions, tigers and elephants,
they had a Jolly time. I^ater they were
given especially desirable wats, and when
tihe lemonade man passed every now and
then the house of Goldenberg put up the
coin so that the youngsters In their employ
might enjoy the affair further. After the
chow the "crowd" was again escorted to the
automobiles and returned to their homes.
Millard Robey perfected the arrangements
for the party, over which watchful eyes
were kept I ' Mrs. Moore. Mrs. Fuller. Mrs.

and C. Levis.
THE THEAfERNew
National.
The National Theater's program last night
announced "the presentation of Harry Bulger
In the comical musical extravaganza,
Noah's Ark,' by Clare Kummer." Mr.
Bulger strove faithfully In his most farcical
vein to Justify the adjective "comical;" the j
composer offered a series of captivating ,
little melodies that left no question of the ,
piece's right to be called musical, and the
conceits are sufficiently fantastic to warrant
the use of the word extravaganza in
i la ujusi cumprenensive sense, xne orcnes- ]
tra, under the direction of Mr. Watty Hyde,
assisted materially In bringing out the
brightness of the music, and the mention
of the old-time terpslchorean favorite. Bar- 1
ney Fagan, as stage manager accounted
for the sprightly grace with which the
dancing numbers were executed.
The story contains points which are more
humorous in the abstract than when worked
out on the stage. Shem, Ham and Japhet '
represented as bearded people In pinafores
proved rather dismal, although the idea Is

many clever rhymes, which, oddly enough, 1
drop every now and then Into Inexcusable 1
dissonances and distortions. The costumes
are rich and handsome. The ancient robes
of dignity were wrought out with becoming '
splendor, but some of the modern gowns
looked as If the costumer had sought her
Inspiration, from Peoria rather than from i
Paris.
The show has but recently shaken the
dust of Baltimore from Its feet, and no
doubt some changes will be made before 1
its presentation next season. As It stands,
it Is a droll bit of novelty, with flashes of
fun that are Irresistible. One of the best
omens of its future was the confidence dis
pmyeu lasi mgni uy us traveling maiiaKement
In frequent and prolonged applause.
The audience by no means resented these
friendly though not unbiassed suggestions
and applauded heartily on Its own account.
On some occasions encores were demanded
until the stock of available verses was en- '
tirely exhausted.
Bulger Is not a comedian of the airy quip
and jest type. He deals In jokes, plain unadulterated.
There Is. no doubt about
whether or rot It is time to laugh when he
begins to talk, and as a vocalist he is most
at home when reeling off the irresponsible 1
but humorous jargon of a patter song.
The audience liked him immensely. And
it also took into its warm appreciation
Sallle Fisher, whose dainty songs were
executed in the dainty manner that
was their due. Stanley Forde brings a
good voice and a graceful personality to
the role of Noah Arkwright. and the usual
nimble soubrette and melodious young man
in military clothes were competently in evidence
in the persons of Miss Maida Snyder
and Edwin Wilson. The chorus is numer
ous, agile and good looking, and the performance
constitutes a good evening's
diversion, despite the theological atmosphere
of its early incidents and the rather
forbidding philosophic suggestions in its
discussion of reincarnation. It is exceptionally
original in many respects, yet it
must be reluctantly admitted most entertaining
when it ceases to be original and becomes
like otiier musical comedies.

sugar plums, and designed to tickle the
senses of childhood. The excuse for the
play !s the bringing to life of a gingerbread
man, who capers through two acts and is
finally made King of Bunn I-and or Sugar
Plum Land, through the agency of one
Ross Snow. who. as the good fairy, manages
to be as unfairylike as a tall man in
a short Swiss skirt could possibly be. The
companions of the Gingerbread Man are
recruited from "Mother Goose." "Simple
Simon." "Jack Horner," "Mistress Mary"
and a score of other irresponsible persons,
who sang, danced and flitted in time to
pretty melodies, and at odd moments produced
sufficient dialogue to serve as a j
verbal cement for the material used in tlie
plot. The production is well staged and
costumed. Eddie Redway's make-up for
the title role is a remarkably ingenious conceit
ami his comedy efforts did not lack
approval.
Belasco.
A most cordial welcome was accorded the
DeWolf Hopper Opera Company at the
Belasco Theater last evening, the large
and enthusiastic audience giving an em-'
phatic testimonial to the popularity of
"Wang," despite its age and well-known
features. Mr. Honner is funnv as ever, and
Ills supporting company ably seconds his
comedy. His humor is infectious, and
clever witticisms are liberally distributed
through the libretti of the opera. He responded
to enthusiastic applause with his
characteristic speech?a talk so well known
to theater-goers that he frankly admitted
himself that if he maile any mistakes in Ills
remarks any one in the audience would be
able to correct him! In further response to
calls he rendered the time-honored "Casey
at the Bat."
The company is the same capable one that
appeared here earlier in the season in
"Happyland." which is billed for the latter
part of the week's engagement. Miss Marguerite
Clark, as Mataya, the crown
prince, gave to the part a charming individuality.
Miss Mabel Wilbur, as Gillette,
sang in excellent voice, and Miss Florence
Martin was winsome us Marie, the sweetheart
of Mataya. John Hendricks' voice
was heard to good effect in the role of the
envoy, and Miss Ada Deaves as the Widow
Fremousse was a most capable support to
Mr. Hopper. Guy Hartlett as Pepat, the
keeper of the royal elephant, and William
Danforth as Col. Fracasse were funny. The
remainder of the company was excellent.
J.,ast night a large party of British naval
oflicers from the warships at Jamestown
and another party of German naval offcers
from the warships also in attendance at the
Jamestown exposition occupied seats.

The Kathryn Purnell Stock Company began
its fourth week yesterday with
"Roanoke." The play centers around a
blind girl of eighteen years, *vhich part ia
taken by Miss Purnell. The first act leaves
the audience with a somewhat gloomy outlook,
for In It the father of Roanoke Is
killed, her brother rendered half witted,
and. as a result of it all, she herself contracts
brain fever, which leaves her blind.
' Resides this there are introduced the aunt
and cousin of Roanoke, wlio Immediately

two parts are played by Misa Helen Bick

VISITOR WAS WELCOME.
Fewelrv Worth 81.000 HftturneH to
the Owner.
Mrs. Frank W. Smith of the Mendota
received a welcome visitor yesterday morning
in the person of a little woman who
n-alked with the aid of crutches. The caller
Inquire.: If Mrs. Smith had lost anything,
and was told that a small black satchel
coi.'tlning about $1,000 worth of jewelry
and $12 in cash had been misplaced.
"I have your property," the caller said,
"and If you will go with me to my home
Dn New Jersey avenue I will give It to
you."
The satchel had been left on a street car
at Oth and F streets Tuesday, July 17,
last year, and Mrs. Smith had given up
all hope of ever recovering her property.
At the time the satchel was left on the
car a reward ol $100 was offered for its
return to the Mendota, but it was not until
yesterday that Mrs. Smith found any trace
of it.
When the satchel was turned over to
Mrs. Smith, she found everything intact
with the exception of the cash. The money,
the crippled woman explained, had been
used for the purchase of shoes for her
children. She told Mrs. Smith that her
laughter had found the satchel on a. street
car, and that she had made every effort
to find the owner, but had not succeeded
until yesterday.

APPEARS BEFORE STUDENTS.
Fred B. Smith, Y. M. C. A. Speaker,
Delivers an Address.
Fred B. Smith, the Y. M. C. A. speaker,
spoke on "The Supper of Death" before a
large number of the students of the George
Washington University branch of the Y.
M. C. A. In the college hall, last evening.
The three great sins against which the
young man of today has to struggle, he
said, are intemperance, gambling and im
purity. As to intemperance, he pointed out
that it is much talked about, and therefore
does not need special discussion.
"A few days ago I rodo with a broker
along Broadway in New York city from
42d street to the Battery; and while we
were going on the car the broker said to
me: 'You notice there is not a saloon on
Broadway from 4 2d street to the Battery.'
Yes,' I replied, 'but what are these places
along the way?'
" 'They are the cafe, buffet, or gentleman's
exchange,' he replied to me. But I
tell you, men, the change in name doesn't
tUn U ? ,.V + t, If.. n
v-nciii^i; uic riirti aviri ul liic pitttt:, ii s a
saloon lust the same. Nothing good is accomplished
by the change in the name."
Regarding the evils of gambling, Mr.
Smith maintained that the man who will
gamble will steal. Impurity, the speaker
declared, is the most threatening sin.
Ernest Eaton, president of the university
brajieh, presided. President C. W. Needham
made a brief address, welcoming and
introducing Mr. Smith. Singing by Fred
Butler was a feature.

Funeral of Mrs. Martha Holland.
The funeral of Mrs. Martha Holland,
wife of G. N. Holland, took place at 10
o viuik lotiay iriim me lamny nome, i.pw m
street northeast. Mrs. Holland's death
occurred Saturday at Columbia Hospital
after a brief Illness, and it came as a great
shock to a large circle of friends, many
of whom had seen her only a few days
ago, and then in her usual good health.
Mrs. Holland was born in Gettysburg,
Pa., and had many thrilling experiences in
connection with the great battle of the
civil war which was fought at that place.
Her father's farm and dwelling were within
the battle lines, and many of the
wounded soldiers of both armies were
