"Talk about practical jokes," re marked a Phcenix man yesterday, "I had one played on me that was a corker. It was this way. I had been indulging in a little too much wine Monday night and went home a little unsteady. I was just getting ready for bed and the clock waB slowly running out its twelve slow dongs, when I heard a queer noiBe in the rear of the house. Half clad, I Blowly made my way to the back yard. The night was very dark, and I started toward the rear shed door, but when half way I stopped short. "There in the door, standing out in bold contrast against the darkness, with its arms and legs moving spas modically, stood a skeleton. I could see the contour of every bone, as the apparition silently waved its bony arms, and legs in midair. "With the wine on my brain I was ready to imagine almost anything. I approached the devil with hesitating step, and when within three or four feet I suddenly thrust my hand forward into the very ribs of his boneship, and lol I grasped paper strips of every-day paper. "When I could strike a match I saw what had been dancing before me like a visitant from the inferal regions a skeleton made of a newspaper, a pair of scissors had done its work, and the result was a fiat, thin paper ghost was hanging by its skull to a piece of thread suspended from the top of the door."

The Martell family, trick bicyclists, are deserving of praise, for their per formance was about the beat feature of the show.- They are the best perform ere in that line of business. The iron jawed lady was also a good feature. The zoological collection is a good one and includes wild and domestic animals from all parts of the globe. The baby kangaroo was an object of especial in terest to the thousands that attended the show. The performance went off without a hitch and all were satisfied. The management are deserving of credit lor having gentlemanly and orderly, attendants and other em ployees. The total absence of gamblers and sure-thing men was a pleasing feature and one that was favorably com mented upon; The show left for Tucson last night where they will give two performances.
