There were no walta and hesitation but the teams of acrobats and performers worked together with a speed and a preci sion that was as marvelous as the acts themselves. The Japanese ac robats singly and together gave a bewildering exhibition of bodily dex terity, tho human frog and his com panion gave a startling contortion ist's act, the knife thrower gave the audience thrills with a sensational aot; A wonderful display of huge bodies and grotesque intelligence was the series of acts and drills through which the trainers put the trained elephants. A notable feature of the performance waa the beauty of stag ing and droRsing In various acts ea such tho work of the Ty-bel sisters, the lady fencers, the equestrian acts, and the bycycle riders. .

AMERICAN FORESTERS ARE IN CHICAGO Special to Dally Parthandle. Chicago, Aug. 27- Delegates from tnlrty-four states and territories, representing a total membership of 250,000, were present when the su preme court of the Foresters of America convened In this city today. Jhe revision of laws governing the order Is the principal business he-' fore the convention, which will re main In session throughout the week. According to Supreme Secre tary E M. McMurtry, of Ne( York, the order has gained In membership nearly 8,000 in the last year.,-. The balance In all funds of the. order la, reported to $2,5-74,653.20." During the year there was paid out In ben efits fl.019.280.73 to the sick, 212, 034.57 for funers and $107,332.11 in benevolence. ,J The American branch' of Forestry traces Its origin back to the mother country where the first Forestry court was established In Leeds, Eng land, in 1745. The traditional his tory of Forestry goes back to Sher wood foreBt and the days of Robin Hood and his merry men. The uni formed branch of the order Is known as the Knights of Sherwood Forest. Tbe first Forestry court was estab SAYLOR & KENDALL lished in America In 1832, at Phil adelphla. The oldest court now in existence is that at Brooklyn found ed In 1864. Until 1888 the Amer ican branch was subsidiary to the British parent body, but seceded be cause of the elimination of the word "white" from the qualifications for membership. The British officials insisted upon the admission of ne groes to full membership. This was bitterly resented In this country, and at the Minneapolis convention, on August 15, 1889, a declaration of In dependence from the English For esters was adopted. At the time of the rebellion the American order had but 50,000 members, one-fifth of the present number. With the inde pendence of Forestry In the United Statea a purely American system of home rule was adopted and Is now In force.
