THE BOSS SHOWMAN.
He Must Be a Man of Great Versatil
ity and Have a Knowledge of the
Conditions of the Whole
Country.
"Folks Imagine a boss showman has
nothing to do but to sit in big leathei
chairs in hotel corridors and decline
to be interviewed, leaving all the wort
of the show to his lieutenants." says
Peter Sells of the Sells Bros, in Col
lier's Weekly.
"Truth is the proprietor must know
more and work harder than any onV
in his employ. Even if he can not dc
stunts In the ring himself, he knows
how each particular performer should
do his act. He must be omniscient.
Ho must know all about wild animals,
their haunts, habits, food and cost of
maintenance. He must know what
kind of hides different kinds of harness
must be made of. He must know*
every point of every horse, from a
draft to a thoroughbred. He musr
know all about painting and the value
of. paints and oils; must have a knowledge
of foodstuffs of every description
for man and beast; about municipal
legislation and license laws in ail
cities; he must be a veterinarian, a
printer, papermaker and lithographer:
must know nil about crops, when harvested.
when sold, in all sections of
the country; must be acquainted with
the industries of the different parts of
pvery State in (he Union, and know
the dates when employes are paid oft":
must, know, for instance, that the hist
ol' May or the first of June is the only
time a circus will 'go' in St. kotiis:
must know (he art of advertising in all
its branches'"'and the relative value of
notices in the principal newspapers
iu every city and town; must know ail
about railroading, from the way a car
is built to the science and transportation
on land or sea. Above all. lie
must know that it. is no longer possible
to humbug the public.
"Those are a few things that I think
I ought to know, for I have been a-circusing
for three and thirty years. Iu
accidents, delays and losses I discovered
at the outset the disadvantages
of not knowing things. I remember
an instance in 1SS2, when circuses
were new to railroads?until a few
years before that such shows were
hauled about the country by horses.
Our train pulled within sight, of Columbia,
S. C.. then suddenly stopped.
We were at the end of a bridge which
was too small to admit, the cars containing
our. wagons. As we were
obliged to continue the journey south
over that road we had to make a detour
of two hundred and fifty miles,
losing the stand in Columbia besides,
and all because I had failed to inform
myself regarding the height of that
one bridge."
FEARED BULLETS FROM WOMAN.
Land Appraisers Fled From the Wife |
of Representative Gooch of
Kentucky.
H IN TON. W Va., Aug. 31.?Representative
D. Linn Clooch, of Ir'virigton.
Ky., has a summer home near tJiis
I)lace on which lie lias spent much
care and money. II has been one of
liis pleasures to have his friends there
as his quests during the heated season.
The authorities of the county,
however, insist that a bridge is needed
across the stream in Mr. Gooch's
. state, and they intend to condemn a
part of his property for that purpose.
Mrs. Gooch has as great an interest ir
jer summer homo as has her husband.
When six of the commissioners apxdr.ted
by the court visited the place
o appraise its value she was the ur.Iy
nember of the family there, and she
vas determined that the commissioners
should not trespass upon her property.
She sent her hired man to inorm
the intruders that liis mistress
vas an excellent shot. Then strolling
>ut to meet the officials she calmlv
irdered the man to hurry to the house
nd bring out her favorite firearms.
Remembering that Mrs. Gooch was
rom Kentucky, the commissioners die
lot parley but hurried back to this
ity, where in a hurried report thej
;ave an estimate of the value of the
md and asked earnestly to be releved
of further duty in the matter.
COSTLY MILITARY BRIDGE.

Dollars.
I
BERLIN, Aug. 31.?Three regiments ,

sw days erected a strong, wide bridge
ver the Elbe in the country district f
ear Wittenberg capable of bearing 1
eavy artillery and army transport.
It was torn down to-day. The ex- 1
eriment and the material for the 1
ridge cost half a million dollars.
Extraordinary precautions were

Novel Uses of Shoe Horn.
"He would be but a. narrow minded
person," said the salesman, "who ?
thought that the shoe horn was do- ;
voted solely to the pulling on of shoes.
Why, I have had persons come in here
who picked out a shoe horn with a
blade that would make it a convenient | s?
implement with which to eat
cream. They lived in a hoarding
house maybe, where they hadn't any
sp ions ut their owi o: not enough to |||
go around, and where they might or
some occasion have friendly and familiar
guests and where they might
bring in ice-cream.
"Lacking spoons enough, a nice sii
ver shoe Horn 01 the rignt shape lgKtasygM
the unhandiest thing in the world with ;
which to eat ice-cream by any means,
and I suppose that more than one fias';
been put to such use.
"And I have heard of such a thing
as a shoe horn being used to stir up
fudge, made in a chafing dish. And.
having no knife, what could you have :;i
much handier than a nice thin bladcd
silver shbe horn for cutting up "^'58
at an informal entertainment among '/
friends?
