THREE LARGE TENTS
FOR THE BIG FAIR
Carnival Company Will Fum^h Spec
ial Amusement for the Public.
Special Days Arranged For.
With five special days already de
cided upon, with excursion rates and
special trains already arranged for,
with the certainty of a first cla?s
carnival company, arrangements for
the Brownsville Midwinter Fair, to
be held from Janury 6 to 15, inclu
sive, have progressed to such an ex
tent that it is certain the next en
tertainment, is to be one in a class
all by itself.
Manager F. H. Williams returned
Sunday from Houston where he went
several days ago on business con
nected with the fair. While there
he purchased three large tents, one
70x130 feet, and two 40x70 feet
each, for the use of the fair associa
tion
It is the intention of the fair
management to hold the various
features, w-ith the exception of the
carnival attractions, in these tents.
They will be erected in the fort
grounds, at the gate at the foot of
Eliabeth street. This location has
been definitely decided upon as the
most ideal for the purpose.
The large tent will be arranged
so that one may pass into it immed
iately upon entering the grounds.
This tent will contain numerous ex
hibits showing the industrial activity
of the Valley, as well as the exhibits
of merchants. On either side of the
large tent will be erected the smaller
tents. These will contain the agri
cultural and poultry exhibits.
There will be no dearth of light in
the tents, as they will be electrically
lighted by probably 2000 incandes
cent lights to be strung through the
tents. The lighting feature is con
sidered to be one of the most impor
tant in an exhibtion of this kind,
and the fair management is deter
mined <to give the sightseers a full
view of everything, day and night.
From the tents one will pass di
rectly into the carnival grounds,
where will be seen the fat girl, the
bearded lady, and the other nonde
script personalities that follow the
fairs year in and year out, but which
are always attractive and without
which no fair is complete. Arrange
ments have been made with a first
class carnival man, who will bring
to the Brownsville fair a high grade
lot of shows and concessions, playing
the larger fairs and carnivals all
over the country. His name is not
yet given out, but he has had four
teen years of experience in the car
nival line, and he is said to be one
of the best men in the business. He
will also give several high class free
attractions, both in the afternoon
and evening.
Mr. Williams said yesterday that
five special days have been arranged
for, and it is probable that there will
be more later.
The fair opens Monday, January
H, but the first special day will be
Wednesday, which will be known as
“Valley day.’’ Excursion rates will be
in force from all points on the
Branch line of the St. Louis, Browns
ville and Mexico railroad, returning
■the same day.
Friday, the 10th, “San Benito
Day,’’ will probably be one of the
biggest days of the fair. A special
will be run from San Benito, as well
as all points on th eBraneh line. San
Benito people are taking a great deal
of interes1 in the fair, and it is cer
tain they will be out in full force.
Landseekers, who may be attracted
to the fair by reason of its being
widely advertised, will also have a
day. Saturday January 11, has been
set aside as “Landseekers’ Day.”
A visit to Brownsville and the bor
der by a stranger is incomplete with
out an opportunity to see a real, ex
citing Spanish bull fight. Sunday,
January 12, will be Bull Fight Day,”
with the exhibition staged at the
bull ring in Matamoro*. This, it is
expected will bring a large crowd of
visitors to the fair.
Brownsville will have a day on
which its citizens wil ltake a day
off and help celebrate “Brownsville
Day,” Tuesday, January 14. All the
business houses will be closed, and
everybody will turn out to make this
day the biggest and most glorious of
the entire ten. The flower parade
will take place on this day. This is
an annual feature, for <the fair comes
during the time when roses are most
profuse here. Prizes will be offered
for the most attractively decorated
vehicles.
THE FILIBUSTERS—A story of the
Cuban insurrection. This is sure
some great—Kalem.
CUPIDS QUARTETTE—A roaringly
funny comedy. A laugh from
start to finish.
A WOMAN’S WAY—A very swell
drama—Melies.

Mexican Consul Viscaino of Browns
ville, made arranegments for their

they left Matamoros for Monterrey,
where they took train for Tampico..
The Nicaragua was fully insured,

probably take charge of her at once,
