Several Women Are Thrown Into Hysterics
Circus and Horse Show
Managed by Smart Set
Brought to a Close
With Dance
Fashionably gowned women were
thrown into hysterics snd a general
panic nearly ensued at the society
horse show and circus in the Pavilion
last night when a bucking bronco
bucked itself into one of the front
boxes, nearly falling into the laps of
several of the women, and before those
occupying seats could get out, started
to kick with ail four feat.
The animals hoofs became tangled In
th* gowns of several of the wamsn
■M that none was injured Is due to
tMfc heroic action of several of the
men, who lifted them bodily from the
lnclosure. The ripping of the gowns,
the screams of the women, which,
mingled with the snorts of the un
tamed horse, caused the thousands of
persons in the Pavilion to rise to their
feet. The circus was brought to an
abrupt stop and'a number started for
the exits. The crowd was quieted only
when the horse was dragged from the
Mrs. Joseph D. Grant, who owned
the box, was entertaining a number of
friends when the animals jumped Into
the Inolosure. Among those thrown
into hysterics were Mrs. Gus Taylor
and Mrs. William Taylor. All threa
suffered considerably from fright.
Their gowns were badly damaged.
The bronco was performing in ring
No. 1 and was being ridden by one
of the cowboys of a moving picture
company. Suddenly it gave a jump
and, landing outside the ring, began
to kick and buck its way along in
front of the row of boxes. When it
came opposite the box occupied by
Mrs. Grant and her friends it leaped
over the railing.
Tha acid test was applied to tha
society circus yesterday afternoon
when a'horde of kiddies from the In
fant Shelter, all decked out in their
best bib and tucker, were taken to
the matinee performance and put In
box seats. Their joyous laughter and
hand clapping were worth more to the
performers than the private announce
ment made a few hours later to the
effect that the receips would reach a
large figure. Early in the evening
$11,000 was deposited and $4,005 more
was expected before the close.
The wild bucking of untrained
bronchos ridden by real cowboya
earned shrill cheers and many "Ohs"
and "Ahs" from the boxes occupied by
the little children of the poor, but
pleasure reached the pinnacle of
Jblight when the clowns went through
their antics in the big hippodrome, and
if there were any persons in the pa
vilion at that time who regretted for
a second the money or effort expended
to make the circua the grand success
It has been they kept mighty quiet
about it.
An added attraction yesterday after
noon was the barefoot dancing of Miss
Suell, who galloped about the plat
form in the center of the hippodrome
to the rather unesthetlcal music of a
brass band. As a danseuso Miss Snell
-was oeclared by every one to be "there
with bells."
As usual. Miss Lurline Matson dis
played all the qualities of a game
horsewoman in the horse show part of
the matinee. She rode and drove In

always managed to get In "with the

with a wide stripe running diagonally
across it, and taking hold of the tie,
"Where did you jg*t that dandy house
