The biggest circus institution in the world is due here to-morrow morning. It will add 1,200 people to the popula tion of New Haven for a day. These etrange persons come from twenty-two different countries, and they range in color from white to yellow, brown and blcck. "When the settlement is fixed at the Elm" City park show grounds,, it will have everything that goes with the charter of a well regulated village. There will be blacksmiths, wagon Jv.akers, hotel men. doctors, lawyers, barbers, and so on through the natur al official life of an organized and thrif ty town. , It Will take eighty-five cars to bring this colony of people, herd of forty ele phants, menagerie of 100 cages and .encrmous equipment to New Haven. The circus comes here from Hartford and the first section of eighty-five cars Is scheduled to arrive before daybreak. The railroad officials promise that the ntlre trains of show people, animals and properties will be in New, Haven at early dawn. There is no form of amusement in the world that attracts human nature like the qircus, and the unloading of the horses and caravans never fa'il to attract crowds. The rumble of the cir cus wagon Is sure to arouse the late eleeper, and find i, welcoming crowd along the roadway. Forty pondrous elephants trudging along the quiet roadway in the first gray gleams of esrly. morning and companies of erect and shapely horses. ' alert and well groomed attendants and gilded dens, from .which proceed weird noises, are sights enough out of the ordinary run of life to eenlist the curious and justify crowds. Klngling Brothers' circus is kt.own in New Haven as the highest expression, of the circus idea.' The etreet parade which they offer show day is always a prepossessing affair. The 1,200 or more people connected with the show take part and the atmosphere of each tells that they are especially I happy in their surroundings and punc-' tvate the obvious fact that the man-: Hgement is particular and ambitiously '' dignified. Ringling Brothers' circus is now, the bfggest traveling enterprise of the world. It carries more people and has been more impressively effective because of organization and attractive feature. There are now 1280 people on the pay roll of this big traveling outfit, and forty elephants and 875 perform ers figure importly in the circus settle ment. In this year's program there are 100 numbers, and 376 people, most of them appearing 'in this " country for the first time, enact this huge program. There are acrobats from Persia, riders from Italy, gymnasts from England and Germany juglers from Japan, danc ers and equilibrists from France and specialists of surprising circus value from twenty-two countries of the world. Acrobats that do tricks on the back of a running horse, which have heretofore been' considered difficult, on the firm foundation of the ground; a man who walks on top of his head like other people do on their feet, gymnasts that turn triple somersaults in midair before they alight upon swings or re ceiving hands; horses taht wear and take off human garments and go to bed like a man; pigs that olimb ladders and shoot the chutes; elephants'that act out humorous skits with amazing intel ligence; horses, dogs and ponies that are educated beyond human belief, and a lot of other things -that' are out of the common, and Entertaining if not astounding, are in the varied circus bill of .100 numbers: Ringling Brothers are particularly, well liked In New (England, because they never misuse their patrons and the circus features are singularly attractive and admir ably adjusted for general satisfaction. The The circus parade, for which they are famous, is announced to leave the Elm City park show grounds to-morrow morning at 10 o'clock. This is a circus pageant worth going out of one's way to seo. It is not only longer but more variedly Interesting. Every man, woman and child in the show usually takes part, and they wear the air of contented people. The several horses of the big show take part, With their well groomed drivers, and graceful rid ers form a street spectacle to be pleas antly remembered. The . musical ve hicle, open animal den, ; frollicking cluwns. Oriental groupings, baby me nagerie, concert . bands,"'; clown band, and a whole lot of other arresting things, project in the procession, and commend it above all others of its kind for novelty, richness and extent of dis play. This parade to-morrow will be the longest and richest, ever; seen in New Haven. OBITUARY NOTES. Mra Margaret E.
