THE GREAT DE VAN A Wonderful Act Specially Engaged for the Amateur Circus. The great De Van baj?? been engaged as a special feature of the amateur circus to be given at the Horse Show building en the afternoon and night of July 4th. De Van does a sensational aerial act, which has astonished and thrilled audi? ences In nearly every .European city, and which has now been brought to this country' for the first time. The act is en? titled "The Death Defying Heel Swing." At a dizzy height, De Van suspends him? self by the heels, and then bringing all his muscles Into play, he causes his body to revolve, Increasing the motion until be becomes a veritable human vhllaglg, ao rapidly does he swing his form around the pivot to which his heels are attached. This act Is a scientific wonder. We all know that an emery stono may be re? volved so rapidly that Its parts will be hurled asunder as though blasted with dynamite. Such Is the effect of an ac? cumulated revolving motion. That a hu? man being, so suspended, can produce the force to nut Itself In such motion, and Increase It until the eye can only catch the revolving form at a given point, is an astonishing feat, well calculated to cause a thrill of excitement In those who witness a performance that almost defies nature.
