The consolidation of the "World's Greatest Shows" and the, "Greatest Show on. Earth" in one circus of colossal size, con stitutes the amusement surprise of the country. Nothing' to ap proach this gigantic, new circus has ever before toured America. It has been formed by merging the. pick and' the cream of all that was biggest arid best in the two famous shows.. It would be folly to attempt to enumerate its many' wonders. Some idea of the enormous scale upon which features are presented may be had wh'en it is stated that a quar ter of a million pounds of ele phants take part in a single act; in other words six times as many or the big eareit giants than have ever before been seen in one main-tent exhibition. All else to be seen is in proportion. The arenic stars embrace all the world's foremost circus perform ers. There are three hours of novelties and bigsensatioi a' acts. The menagerie is far an 1 away the most colossal ever traveled. For instance a , herd of eight giraffes are exhibited in place of the two or three shown in the past. The great tournament which opens the main-tent pro gram, is the most magnificent thing in pageantry yet produced in America. Hundreds upon hundreds of gorgeously costumed characters and beautiful horses take part in it. The morning street parade is the longest and most brillant ever given any where. It is a stupendous super circus that baffles description. 1 . . . . NOTICE! On aCCOUnt OI : ; , -' j SickneSS and Other I unavoidable cir cumstances you will find me or Dr. W. T.

Take self rising flour, for in- hii&: , Ihi-s pmdiiet is frMtvyA ing grades, much of it s-eMing for the same or even less than the plain flour, which in itself is evi dence of the. fact that it is of in ferior quality. Nuturally; then, its food valne'is less than that of a pine plain flour. . In the long run it really' costs more and represents a waste. There is no real economy injt. Some housewives are under the impression that it saves them a little effort, but in this they are mistaken," Self rising Hour jtnns often be sifted asNit is in clined to get lumpy. The food value of a prepared flour is con siderably less than a good grade of pure plain Hour which is made from better wlieat and contains no cheap leavening agent or cal cium sulphate, commonly called plaster of pan's, often contained in the ingredients used in self rising flours in order to oheapen the product. ' Thus the flour question serves as a very good illustration of what il meant by saving the value of foods should be deter mined by their food value. And likewise the economy of using various foods should be detern mined in a similar manner. It isn't always the cheapest that is best. In fact, the opposite is often the case. , Miss Leona Lumley, of Tracy City, is the guest of Mrs. Roy Bugby. Tullahoma Tenn. Guardian.
