The event will be an Interesting one, not only because of the popularity of this wonderful amusement institution, but also be cause the present season marks a dis tinct era in the growth of this biggest of biff shows. Since last season the paraphornalia of the show has been entirely reconstructed, while the en tire exhibition has been so vastly en larged that it is now fully twice as large as during the season of 1896. There are twice as many elephants; twice as many railroad cars; twice as many people; twice as many perform ers; twice as much seating capacity; twice as many arenic spaces; twice as much space on the huge hippodrome course for theexclting racing contests, and twice as many of the great and distinctive features which have hith erto given Ringling Bros.' famous cir cus its superb individuality. It is evident that such an enormous en largement of an exhibition, already vastly larger and better than its con temporaries, must have entailed the expenditure of a princly sum, and It is not a surprise to learn that the actual capital invested in Ringling Bros.' World's Greatest Shows this season Is over $3,700,000. This, moreover, com prebends only a portion of the outlay, for the daily cost of operating this stupendous institution averages $7,400 an aggregate of over $1,200,000. The most interpid riders; the most grace allv athletic acrobats; the most start ling mid-air evolutionists; the most wondrously trained animales, embrac ing 23 reasonendowed elephants a happy family of wisest pachyderms, ranging from the tiniest of baby ele phants to the largest of living beasts; the most beautiful animal in all crea tion, a pure white elephant; the most massively gorgeous dens and cages of rare wild beasts, in countless num bers and endless variety; and over all the largest, the longest, the highest canvas pavilions ever constructed; absolutely waterproof, and affording vast areas for the exhibition or the zoologlc, ethnic, equine and gymnic wonders of the great show.
