Saturday I* The Last Day
BAH & BAILEY'S
Well, kids, the circus is almost here.
A part of it will be on its way before
8 o'clock tonight and by the time that
you have the kinks out of your wool
In the morning the outfit of the Bar
num & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth
will be camped on the show grounds.
The first section of the circus known
as the Flying Squadron" and consisting
of the commissiary department. Is ex
pected to roll into the Great Northern
railroad yards from Grafton about 3
o'clock in the morning. It is one good
bet that there will be a crowd of men
and boys on hand to greet its trrival,
see the wagons rolled off the cars and
give the elephants and things a wel
come to the city. Only one perform
ance is being given in Grafton in order
that the show may reach here in good
The interesting thing just now is the
parade which the circus oeople have
revived and announce that they are
giving on a larger and more elaborate
fcale than ever before. It will leave
'lie show grounds tomorrow promptly
at 10 o'clock. Like the circus itself,
of which it will be a good prelude. It
will be many things in one. It will
be a big, moving horse show, a congress
of riders, a display of wild animals and
an exhibition uf beautifully carved
floats representing foreign lands. Thir
ty elephants led by Gyp, a fellow
weighing six tons, will be in line. Three
herds of camels will meander along and
observe the millinery effects. There
will be lots of music including a mount
ed cavalry band and a band composed
of clowns. All of the floats and the
costumes of the riders are new and the
pageant is imposing and colorful.
The circus programme is a huge af
fair made up into twenty divisions and
containing 100 hundred acts. It opens
with a spectacular entry descriptive of
a pertod in the life of Cleopatra. Twelve
hundred people many elephants, camels
and horses take part in the spectacle
Fargoans From the Cradle Almost to the Grave Are in a State
of Expectancy Over the Arrival of the Greatest
Show on Earth.
Desperado, a young Frenchman. This
daring youth mounts to the dome of
the main tent and leaps forward to
alight on his unprotected chest on a
curved chute on the ground. The feat
is described as nerve-twisting. One
of the big feature numbers is furnished
by Jupiter, a handsome white Arabian
stallion. The horse and his young
woman rider take position on a plat
form attached to a balloon and ascend
to the dome of the tent. There is a
momentary pause and bursting rockets
envelop horse and rider in a shower of
sparks as the descent is made. The
net is creating as much of a sensation
here as it did abroad.

stand out this season is the prepon
derance of novelties. There are nearly
