Hall had been commissioned by a Chicago firm to supply them with horses, at his own price, so well did they respect his judgment and integrity. However, they failed to limit him as to the number of horses de sired, and in a few days Chicago was flooded with his purchases. This led to the job of handling the horses foe the "Boer War Show" at the fair. In trigued by the potentialities of the show busi ness. Hall purchased the stranded Lemon Brothers' Circus at Omaha in the fall of 1903, and the next season it went out of Lancaster as the "William P. Hall Circus." Π AIN of weeks' duration cut into the profits, end, disappointed with the "take," Hall decided that he had best devote his time to his horses. The next season the show was leased as "Howe's Great London Circus," under another management, and thus r ime the start of the circus brokerage business. Tlie "Pan-American Shows'" and the equip ment of the "Walter L. Main Shows," sans title, were soon stored away in Lancaster, to be sold piecemeal at a handsome profit. This started a regular trail of defunct shows to the bone yard, Hall's farm. Profiting by the experience of other show men, Hall stayed out of the circus business as far as actual operation was concerned, yet he was able to Indulge his hobby by dabbling with show equipment, often buying an entire show. down to the advertising posters, and here and there a leopard or a horse tent No other man had ever been associated in such a business, yet It paid handsome returns for 20 years or more. Hall, you might say, capitalised on others' misfortunes; yet when bidding for a show, he always tried to be fair, and as a rule gave the unlucky showman more than he could have received from his creditors, or through any other source. Shortly before his death, at the age of 68, Mr. Hall had delegated the actual management of the circus equipment and horse business to his lieutenants, his 26-year-old son, Billy, jr„ and his superintendent of horses, R. B. McClain. There is little chance for profitable liquida tion of the huge stock of circus paraphernalia, but the horses and animals can be disposed of profitably. The decline of railroad circuses, dating from the abandonment of the greatest advertising stunt to circusdom. the popular street parade, reduces the chances of turning over the beauti ful wagons and cars. Yet is is possible that some hardy showman, with more enthusiast than acumen, urn hackled by the tyranny of tradition, may come along and take tlx. whol· lot There is enough good, sound equipment to equip completely and lavishly a 30-car show big. as railroad shows go today. Billy Hall, jr., heading the business sipce his father's death, has announced that boritoes will continue as usual, but that no more equip ment will be bought and that stocks on hand will be sold. He will continue to handle horses and other animals. Ambulance History Long Τ HE forerunner of the modern ambulance^ which speeds with walling siren through the city streets on its errands of mercy, was a covered wagon introduced by a French surge' . named Larrey for use of the French ΑΜβλ m caring for the wounded in battle. The flrôt ci the covered wagons was put in use in 1792.
