dren at the yesterday s inaugural ruauuTO

tion invested the occasion wilh buoyant
interest. The American Institute build
ings, althoiijzh very large, were scarcely
adequate to tbe requirements of the com

sttblesand the audience. Nearly a score
of elephants of all sizes, from the mam
moth uncurbed Emperor to the infantile
tronkling of six moons, disported them
stlves uneasily in the presenoe of crowds
of cake-donating juveniles. Coal-black
camels and milk-white dromedaries of
immense proportions monopolized a large
space on the Second avenue side of the
locale. After an entry quadrille by the
hand, the trained stallions, Mameluke and
Pasha,dis played their extraordinary intell
igence. U Dale Stevens followed with a
lobe-and-table act, and was replaced by
Lizzie Marcel his in graceful equestrian
ism, which was enlivened by the popular
clown, Mr. J. Uolloway. Performing
ponies and mules came next, succeeded
by Katie Stokes' marvelous bareback rid
ing, with Charles Seeley as clown. Carl
Antony then introduced seven Kussian
stallions in a series of clever evolutions.
These paved the way for Linda Jeal's
