X 1 t V v fAGE TWO. TirE RICH3IOND PALLADIUM AND SO-TELEGRA3I, WEDNESDAY, JUIjT 1, 1908. CIRCUS STILL HAS ... OLD ATTRACTION ' Many Local People See John Robinson's Big Shows Today. MANY GOOD FEATURES. THE PARADE AND THE PER FORMANCES GIVEN UNDER THE MANAGEMENT OF FAMOUS HOWMAN ARE EXCELLENT. The first circus of the season is in town today. It is Robinson's Dig show and when it pulled into the city early this morning there was a large crowd present to witness the unloading al ways an attractive sight. The big tented attraction shows this afternoon and evening on the North Nineteenth street grounds. The parade was a gorgeous street spectacle over a mile in length and consisted of bands galore, scores of cages, triumphs of the showman's art a herd of elephants and camels, a group of sacred cattle, lady horseback riders, mounted on blooded Kentucky horses, the clown band, a band of Ara pahoe Indians, scores of cowboys, and cowgirls, not forgetting the steam cal liope all serving to make one of the greatest street pageants ever seen in Richmond. The nienagarie is the one possession of "Governor" Robinson which he guards with a jealous hand, for after years of patient work he has now the finest collection of wild animals that :re exhibited under canvas, no matter hov. pretentious the show may be. Ti e circus this year is by far the best ring performance seen in Rich mond, the costumes are bright and new and the performance itself goes with a vim and dash which shows that each unit of this big organization takes a personal interest in its suc cess. John F. Robinson, the multi-millionaire and veteran proprietor of this rational institution has been absent from the show for the past several yaars, but this year directs personally and was seated at the main entrance today busy shaking hands and greet ing old acquaintances. He is popular ly and affectionately known through out the length and breadth of the land as the Governor, and he is thoroughly enjoying every minute of the time of r's ve-enTiancp into the daily excite ment and constant change of circus Jack Wrrron, the genial press agent was an early caller at the Palladium office and h's fame as a publicity pro moter is one of V.te assets of the show.

E MEET FOR CONFERENCE Rech Intimates There May Be A Meeting. ' " St. Petersburg, July 1 A meeting between Emperor Nicholas of Russia nd the Emperor of Germany on the Baltic, an intimation of which appears in the Rech is here declared possible, ait hough no information concerning - 6uch an arrangement is as yet avail able. The Russian Foreign office pro fesses ignorance on tne subject and even Gen. Jocoby, the German member of the Emperor's suite, who is in an exceptional position as Emperor Wil liam's personal representative, has re ceived no intimation that an interview between the two monarchs is impend ing. Chens and War. The origin of -hvss is shrouded in mystery. There is little doubt, how ever, that Its birthplace was in India and that It Is an offspring of a game galled chaturanga. which is mentioned in oriental literature as in use fully : 200 years before the Christian era. -From India chess spread into Persia , and thence into Arabia, and ultimately the Arabs took it into Spain and the rest of western Europe. The game Aras In all probability Invented for the purpose of Illustrating the art of war. Tb Arab legend upon this point Is tbnt It was devised for the instruction of a young despot by bis rather, a learned Brahmaa. to teach him' that a king notwithstanding his power was depend ent for safety upon his subjects. The Greek historians credit the Invention of the game to Palamedes, who, they claim, devised it to beguile the tedium Of the siege of Troy during the Trojan war. , - Tour grocer ha Gold Medal Flour. ; . -GaxarBA. HARRIS Affairs of the Chicago now reposes in second place in the National league race, and for the first time in moons and moons. Keep your eyes on that Pittsburg out fit and, if their pitchers go nice, watch the Red3 to show. Early in the season some wise heads predicted that McGraw's Giants would be also rans. The Giants are hitting a hot pace now and they promise to make Cincinnati, Pittsburg and Chica go step a lick. Rudy Hulswitt is attracting great attention by his magnificent shortstop play for the Reds. For about three years Foxy Billy Clymer managed to keep this star with his Columbus out fit. Now Cincinnati fans are wonder ing how it happened. At last the three times champion Columbus team has struck its gait and under the magnetic leadership of Cly mer it will make Indianapolis and the other Association leaders know that they are in a ' hoss" race. The Sena tors have an excellent chance for a fourth pennant. Hurrah for the grand old grandpa of the national pastime. Yesterday Cy WHO WILL WIN? NATIONAL LEAGUE. Won Lost Pet.

It Is One of the Most Grotesque Ani mals In Existence. To the naturalist who closely stud ies animal life it sometimes appears as If nature had either deliberately set to work to form weird and curious crea tures or else had been engaged in ex periments, for there are birds and ani mals which might be accused of being made up of odds and ends. One of the most grotesque animals In existence is the wart hog of Africa, called by ihe Doers the Vlaktevark pig of the plains. It stands about thirty inches in height, has a huge disproportionate head, with eyes set very high up, and large protruding tusks. These are ex actly opposite those of other pigs, the upper ones being much longer than those in the lower jaw and sometimes attaining a length of over twenty inches. But the most unusual feature of this curious looking creature and the one from which it derives Its name is the great wart just below each eye, a smaller one appearing between each tusk and the large wart above It. The lody is almost hairless, except that along the spine and the neck long coarse hair hangs, and the whole effect of the animal is weird and grotesque. These wild hogs often take possesion of empty burrows made by otber ani mals, and when pursued they slew around sharply as they enter, making their way a hind first. London Tele graph. Jenny Lind's Piety. Jenny Lind, who gave her first 2, 000 to the poor, continued throughout her life a series of charities and pie ties. In regard to the latter we have the assurance of a friend that this greatest of singers deliberately cut short her own public career while her voice was still in perfection. It was Lady Taylor, -wife of the author of "Fhilip Van Artevelde," who found Jenny Und sitting toward evening on a south coast beach .just after her withdrawal, with a book in her lap. She spoke of her resolve. "I found that this" the setting sun "was be coming less to me and that this" the book in her lap was a Bible "was be coming nothing to me, and I knew then that I must check myself and change my life." London Standard. Sporting World Young, just to shame those who said he was all in and scheduled for the pension list, shutout the New York Highlanders without the semblance of a hit, only one New York player reach ing first base. The I. O. league continues to flour ish and it is reported that all of them are drawing fair crowds. As long as this continues the players will draw their salaries or wages, as the case may be. Recently Johnny Kling, the Chicago Cubs star catcher, got badly fussed because a fan asked him to pin his ears back so he could see the pitcher. L,ee B. Nusbaum has offered anoth er cup to be played for by the "hoot mon" experts at the Country club. This cup goes to the laddie (Scotch for male human being) that has the most trouble getting around the course two times. In other words this fortunate unfortunate is re warded by a silver cup for tinging the atmosphere with blue language. The player who hands in the best score gets the other Nusbaum cup, which was hung up last year. Both cups will be contested for Saturday. MUSICIAN FULLS BY THE WAYSIDE Arrested But Released by the City Court. "I'd rather be on the outside look in' in, than on the inside lookin' out" was not composed by Lawrence Schuman, but that was the song he would have sung had he been in phy sical condition this morning. Schu man is a musician, by some he is de clared to be a musical genius, but strong drink is his foe and likewise his conqueror. He was found at Tenth and North F streets last night too drunk to rise unassisted from the ground. In court this morning he gave the story of his life and it was such as to prevail upon the judge to dismiss him under suspended sen tence. The man expressed his approv al of the law and announced his in tended adherence. Schuman came to this city from Dayton, Ohio. His father, who is eighty-seven years old, resides with friends in Riverdale. The son is fifty two years old and spends his time composing music and peddling it about the streets. Those who have heard him play the piano assert he has the ability of an artist. In court this morning he appeared as a nerv ous wreck and it was this fact that led Judge Converse to favor him with leniency. Schuman said he came to Richmond with the intention of or ganizing a class of pupils and teach ing them music. He was without a cent when arrested. The man occupied the time of the ?ourt long enough to deliver an effect ive temperance lecture. He admitted his shortcomings and wrong doings, but maintained they were without in tent to harm anyone. He told the court he realized he has been his worst enemy. He said he never had been arrested on a criminal charge but had fallen along the path of in temperance a few times before- ANOTHER GRAFTER IS UNDER ARREST Indianapolis Politician in Ser ious Trouble. Indianapolis, Ind., July 1. Henry W. Marshall, of Lafayette, president of the Western Construction company, has been indicted by the grand jury. He is charged with presenting a fraudulent claim against the city for work done in repairing streets in April 1907. He presented himself at the sheriff's office before a capias was is sued for his arrest. Michael Ryan, his attorney, accompanied him and gave bond for $5,000. The charge against Marshall is prac tically the same as the one against Harry P. Brunaugh. an employe of his company, sentenced to state prison for an Indeterminate term. Brunaugh was charged with altering the books of the street inspectors and present ing the fraudulent claims. He receiv ed 50 per cent of the profits as his compensation. Marshall is one of the well-known business men and republican leaders of Indiana. He was a member of the house of representatives for three ses sions and speaker one session. He formerly was a member of the repub lican state committee. Hn.pEOARrE: Gold Medal Flour pleases thp rook. Frederick. CARRIE NATION SAYS SHE'LL WELL, READ IT Des Moines. Ia., July 1.

Because of the leasing of the old Van Wyck homestead by Booker T. Washington, negro educator and friend of Presi dent Roosevelt, an open rupture has practically resulted between the good citizens of this quiet Long Island vil lage, the Bookerites on one side and the anti-Bookerites on the other. A month ago it was announced that Booker T. Washington proposed to make his summer home here if he could get the place lie wanted. The citizens prepared to receive him with open arms, the sentiment among this faction of the villagers being that nothing was too good for any man regardless of race or color, if he was a friend of Neighbor Roosevelt. Not so, however, with some of Hunting ton's "400." The colored educator was pleased with ttie Van Wyck homestead, which he occupied last summer, about two and one-half miles from Huntington village proper, but ho insisted that there must be telephone connection in the homestead. The real estate men said the matter could be arranged and went to see the telephone people. But here is where the social prestige lever bgan to work. When the telephone company sought permission to erect poles and string wires on the estates adjoining the Van Wyck homestead, it was met wjfh cold refusals. The villagers heard of the latest develop ment in the case and were mad through and through. The villagers got busy, and as a result the Van Wyck homestead had a telephone in stalled and connection was made with the exchange in a roundabout way. WILL TAKE MANUAL TRAINING COURSE Prof. W. S. Hiser Goes to Chicago. W. Scott Hiser, secretary of the Richmond Chautauqua, who has tend ered his resignation, will enter manual training department of Chicago uni versity for the summer. The manual training department of the Richmond schools has attracted considerable at tention throughout tho state. The de partment of education of Indiana has received a request for some pictures of manual training work done here. The state superintendent, F. A. Cot ton on a recent visit to this depart ment of the schools, made a personal request for these photos, and it was renewed a few days ago by mail. The pictures have been sent. They are to be used in the report of the state superintendent of public instruc tion, which goes before the state leg islature next January and which will bo distributed throughout the state. W. Scott Hiser started the work in manual training in Richmond and it has developed until it attracts as much if not more attention than any other department of the annual art ex hibit in the Garfield building. It is understood that the kinds of manual training work carried on in Richmond is second to none in the Middle West. In 1004 the state department of ed ucation, in its report to the legislature, used the photographs of manual train ing in the Richmond schools. Mr. Hiser has been connected with the Richmond schools for fourteen years, and in every line of work he has made good. In 1884 the penman ship of the cchools was so bad that he was given a chance to popularize the position of supervisor of penmanship. The work was begun and in seven years the Richmond writing stood In the front. In two succcosive years, in national penmanship contests, six Richmond pupils von certificates awarded by the Penman's Art Journal of New York city, and through the pu pils ,the supervisor, (VV. S.
