rCLCQAAP* cm? ecrr HAje&s r* / A htavl <mr CHEAT FORTUNES IN CIRCUS BUSINESS FATHER OF THE SELLS BOYS WAS METHODIST CIRCUIT ■RIDER IN EARLY DAYS Wallace Was Running a Livery Stable In Peru Until Circus Came to Town and Attracted His Attention. Circus day, to the men who have hundreds of thousands of dollais in vested, means the culmination or l< ..ig and careful and systematic preparation. To get ready for the day has been the work of many months and has employed the atten tion and talents of men wonderfully expert in their particular Holds. Ninety seven per cent of the men e,1 gaged in the circus calling are d< cendats of those who have followed the calllg in other years. Few who enter the circus fields are ever ab'e to successfully shake off t ie desire to follow the "white tops.” Adam Forepaugh a former Phila delphia butcher, who died several years ago, was the most remarkable circus man of his day. There have licen others who have enjoyed more publicity, but an to the ability o' creating and organizing and tn power of handling men. Air. Fore paugh was without an equal. iHe was as -ugged and uncouth h“ a iMinne.-ota wood chopper. He fa k ed and acted like a bowery tough. Rut lie bad a heart as true a steel and was as kind and relentless as it Is 'possible for a circus man to h Often at night 1 have seen him emerge from the “big top'’ after the menaeerie had been torn down and round up the crowd of urchins an 1 ethers who bans about the show, toping in some way to gain admit tance. “Get in (lore," he would say, with a great 1)1 uM at fierceness, "and get in dere quick, or I'll tan your hides." It is needless to sav that these small hoys never waited to have their hides tanned. Then the showman would sit down in his arm chair, rest his hands upon his cane, and chuckle (good naturcdly. When Mr. F'orepaugh died several year-- ago he was worth more than $4,000,000. Near Columbus. (>„ two or three generations ago there lived a poor Methodist preacher who rode a big circuit, which necessiated him preach ing four or fixe times every Sunday. The Rev. Or. Sells had four hoys, Adam. !,ewr..Peter and Ephraim. The neighbors said that the hoys were th* worst for miles around. hike most other (hoys, sons of min isters, they were gulled from pest tt* -pillar and they grew tip as best the* could. The hoys finally left home and began to peddle iBibles. This proved rather slow and they began to sell electric be’ts. which they passed out Pke wildfire. The ability of the wiz ard-like Edison xx as just lx ■inning to daxvn and they proved profitable davs to the venders of electric belts. Th» hoys saved their money and one day they had a chance to buy a small wagon show that had stranded. They did all sorts of things to save salar ies, even to the raising of the tent n xvhich the performance was given. The show grexv and prospered, when the last of the brothers died in Colum bus six years ago, he left an estat-' of many million dollars. The careful training the hoys received in a Chris Pan home was never afterward eradi cated in spite of their calling or busi ness principles.

Address, _ MRS.+ M. SUMMERS, .... Box H, SOUTH BENO, IND. "colonel," and, as soon as one came into possession of a circus, the title automatically fell to him. Now, Air. Hall had been known fpr a quarter of a century as "•Popcorn George,” for it was he who invented the candy form of delicacy made from popcorn. And so, when Mr. Hall came into pos session of his first circus, he had cal'* iug cards printed reading 'H'ol. George W. Hall," and likewise on all his passes he had a similar “handle.’• Hut the old circus followers couldn't see the “colonel," and much to Mr. Hall's chagrin, he was ever known as I “Popcorn George.” The richest individual showman in the world today lives not a great ways from Indianai>olis. in the little city of Peru. Ind. He is “Uncle Ben” Wallace, and the name has been lisped upon the tongue of millions of little tots in the United 'States. Cana da and Mexico. Thirty years ago Mr. Wallace was running a livery stable in Peru. One day a small •'wagon show passed through town and bought several horses. A mortgage was tak en on the circus paraphernalia. The showmen were never ahle to lift the mortgage and it fell into .Mr. Wal lace's hands. He tried in vain to dlv pose of t)ie property, and so the next spring he took it out. calling the lit tle aggregation “The (’.teat Wallace Show." The young Hoosier showman applied to his circus the same careful attention that he had given his livery stable. He was one of the first men to run a show upon business-like, principles and to do away with the I gypsy-like methods which had long i predominated circus life. Irishonestv | ami graft were not allowed in any ! form. It is no wonder that the show bourn to grow and to continue to do so until it reached the zenith of circusdom. The running of a circus is a stupend ous proposition. Generally there are many men interested, and each 'ins one particular line of work to follow. Not so with iMr. Wallace—he Iris never had a partner. IHIs success lias been due to the fact that he knows how to handle men. There is nothing a lion t his great organization with which he is not familiar. He knows every one of the ■ employees, most of them by their first name. On a rainy, bad night, when difficulty is found in loading the train. It is not an uncommon sight to see him down at the “runs" in mud up to his knees, wrestling an* working side by side with the circus “razorbacks,” whose pay is less than $1 per day. Mr. Wallace purchased the reat Carl Hagen hock wild ani mal show six years ago and combln .1 i’ with his circus, making it the largest organization of its kind in the world. He travels with the show at all times, and he personally selects the GOO performers and the hundreds of other attaches. The Hagftn<bok Wallace show will cene to Hot Snrlngs aboard tlirp'. special trains. Two performances wi’l he given Wednesday, October 21, -- sv.. . OR. FEWKES MOVES OFFICE. Hr. ,Tno. M.
