Aim of Hagenbeck-Wallace Man I agement, Showing Here July 30, is for Clean Show The elevated standard of morality of circus men and women is a relevation to one who is with them from day to day, and is their close companion. The at mosphere and environment seems charg ed with health and happiness, vigor and virtue. Drunkenness is never permitted in any form. Immediate discharge, no matter who the offender may be, is the penalty, and except in the ranks of the workingmen few, if any, are ever fourni guilty. The very nature of the circus business forbids immoral or vicious ex cesses. The hours are long and the work is hard, therefore the vigor of the brain and body must not be dissipated. The women of the circus are not per mitted to engage in conversation with anyone not directly connected with the show. Most of them attend church ev ery Sunday and it is not an infrequent occurrence for a minister of the gospel to he invited to lead divine services on a Sabbath afternoon. It has always been the aim with the management of the Hagenbeck-Wallace cireus which comes to Great Falls Wednesday. July 30. for two performances, to inculcate a spirit, of good fellowship and enduring affec tion, founded upon common respect and esteem. It demands that everyone connected with the show be polite and civil, assist patrons In trouble, maintain a spirit of harmony, in fact, make the visit of the people a pleasing one that they may wish to return on another day to the circus. Gambling is strictly prohibited, and a fine awaits the one caught using profane language. The Hagenbeck-Wallace circus is a little city within itself. There are al most a thousand people connected with the great organization. In any city of 1,000 souls it is not hard to find a few bad persons; it is these that the man agement endeavors to discover and elim inate as soon as possible. A premium is placed on the polite and hard working employes. THE BUM SVORT. Germany can never hope to get on her feet as long as (me keeps on her ear. MANY PORTERS IN PRY NATION Easy to Obtain Colored Help Under Prohibition Keen Says.
