The Great Circus Day. In almost every home and hamlet the announcement of the coming 1o Atlantic on Saturday, August 25, of the Adam Forepaugh and Sells Bros.' union of big shows will be greeted as tidings of great joy. Since the Bar num & Bailey show went to Europe it is the only menagerie, circus and hip podrome that has exhibited in New York City and the general metropoli tan verdict, recorded by immense au diences for two seasons at Madison Square Garden and in the press seems to be that it has eclipsed its great and popular predecessor. The World echoes the drift of public opinion in pronouncing it the biggest circus that New York has ever seen," and what held good there will doubtless be maintained in the country at large. From start to finish, from the mag nificent street parade to the last ot the hippodrome races the exhibition, is at once a colossus and a corker. Hours may be profitably and pleasantly passed in inspecting the largest and finest collection of rarest wild beasts and birds. When it comes to the cir cus and hippodrome performances there appears to be no limit to the thrills and tickles. Hundreds of dis tinguished artists and admirably trained animals participate in a hun dred acts. Even the very air Is alive with wizard bicyclists liying sprites and trapeze heroes and heroines, while in the three rings below appear the nineteen finest male and female bareback riders of both Europe and America. Intermingling with all this und filling the very air with laughing gas are clowns of all kinds and countries to the number of twen ty-five, whose music, mirth and infi nitely humorous hits and skits at cur rent fads and fashionable follies make tens of thousand lx!d their sides and hilariously howl. As for?Jie rest, well you'll have to read the bill*. FARM LOANS 5 per cent, interest onGe a year, $100 optional payments with Davenport Savings Bank. CHARLES BAGL&y A Pioneer Gone. Gerge B. Russell died at his home, Saturday, August 4th, of brights dis ease, and was buried Monday in Ar lington Heights cemetery the funeral services being conducted at the home by Rev. Ed. B. Cousins. The deceased was born in Hamilton, Scotland, February 16, 1832. His parents came to America when he was eight years of age and remained in New York City until he was twelve. From there they came west to Port land, Dodge county, Wisconsin, where they remained until he was nineteen. From there he went to Georgia and stayed two years and then went back to Wisconsin. In 1872 he came to Au dubon county and purchased a farm near Exira and engaged in the mer cantile business in the town. He did a good business there aud when op portunities became better in Audubon he moved there in 1879, entering ex clusively in mercantile work. He re mained in the store looking after the management until March, 1894, when his son, J. F. Russell, the present pro prietor, purchased the entire stock. In February, 1898, he was appointed post master, which position he held at the time of his death. He was married in 1855, and four children came to their home, three of whom survive him— Mrs. Agnes R. Stotts, Mrs. John A. Nash and J. F. Russell. Thus, death has entered our midst and taken from a home a husbaud, who through life has been true, kind and sympathetic, ever providing for every want aud comfort a father full of love and pride for those who through childhood years were depend ent upon him a citizen honored, re spected and trusted. The departed was a man liberal in his opinions and consistent in his be lief and took abroad view of life and willingly faced the stern realities that are strewn along the pathway of all. He was a man of action and from early childhood toiled hard that he might meet life's daily battles boldly and overcome the obstacles and barri ers that so often retard success. By constant toil and frugal economy through his early years he earned and saved, so that in later years he and his family have been able to enjoy the comforts of a line home, surrounded by everything that is for the ease and comfort of human existence. Through the many years that were allotted to him he has always held an honorable position in the affairs of men, always being esteemed and re spected by a large circle of intimate friends and trusted associates. He was charitable to the unfortun ate and the weak, ever ready and will ing to assist those who were worthy and deserving. He was a man of energy and push and believed in prog ress, always being a potent factor in the social and business circles which surrounded him. One of his strongest characteristics was that of honesty. His nobility and sincerity of purpose will long be re membered and cherished by his many friends. When years have come and gone and the flood of time rolls on when the dews of summer and the frosts of winter fall on his last resting place when the relatives and friends stand by the side of the hallowed and sacred mound beneath which the honored and cherished departed rest in quiet repose, the lessons taught by his many deeds of charity aud love will ever tend to influence the lives and mould and sustain the character of those who through life have been his associates. The bereaved and sorrowing wife and children and relatives have the sympathy of their many friends: but while words of love aud sympathy are dear and precious they cannot fill the place ot a kind and loving husband and a devoted and tender father, who now sleeps in peace. Audubon County Hair. Only a short time remains until the coming annual fair. It is time that everyone should commence preparing and getting something ready to put on exhibition and help make the fair one of the largest and ty far one of the most successful ever held in the coun ty. Every officer has done his part and more, but within themselves they cannot make a fair Without tjjie help and co-operation of all people in gen eral in the county, everyone contrib uting something to help a good and worthy cause along. From time to time we have made mention of the new buildings being erected, but that the public should be reminded of what has been done and that whatever may be put on exhibition will be properly cared for, we again mention them. The new floral hall is 22x66 It., put up in modern style and will provide ample room for a large exhibit in that line. The hog house and sheds put up recently are 24x100 ft., with pens sufficient to care for a large dis play of stock. With the conveniences provided it will not be difficult to care for the stock. The cattle barn 26x56 ft. and put up so that the cattle can be easily cared for. A new ticket office lias been erected, which, with the other buildings mentioned, adds much to the appearance of the grounds as well as to the convenience to those who are exhibitors. If you have been helping in the past years, don't fail to help again this year. If you have never been an exhibitor, be one this year and help along a worthy cause. North ParK Livery Barn WM.
