THE WILMINGTON MESSENGER, FRIDaX, AUGUST 23, 1941.
THE ELKS' CARNIVAL
IT HAS BEEN DEFINITELY SETTLED ON
. FOR OCTOBER 14-19.
Contract Closed Yesterday With the
Bostock - Ferrari Corporation to
- Brine Its Mammoth Aggregation to
The Elk's carnival and street fair is
no longer to be classed as a propability
but as an event that is fixed. The
executive committee on yesterday
dosed a contract that definitely settled
the matter and named the date for
this novel attraction for Wilmington
October 14th to 15th.
In response to a telegram frcm the
Elks carnival committee. Mr. Victor
D. Levitte. manager for the mammoth
Bostock-Ferrari Corporation, of Buf
falo, N. T.. arrived here yesterday to
confer -with the committee.
Mr. Levitte offered his great aggre
gation from October 14th to the 15th,
the only date which he had not filled
in, and required a guarantee of $3,000
for bringing that world famed attrac
tion to Wilmington. It had been con
templated to have the carnival and
street fair In November, but the com
mittee Jumped at the Bostock-Ftrrari
peoples' offer and closed the contract
.with Mr. Levitte yesterday afternoon.
The closing of the contract effected two
things it settled the question that we
:will have a carnival and it made It cer
tain that the greatest attraction of Its
kind on earth is to be its main feature.
Mr. Levitte, after closing the deal, Jeft
the city leaving on the 7 o'clock train
bound north on the Atlantic Coast Line.
The Bostock-Ferrari corporation is
an aggregation of European attractions
and carries 200 -people, reciuiring 16 cars
for Its transportation. It will be
brotierht in its entirely as it exhibits in
. Jtichmond at the carnival to be held
. there next month. It embraces Colonel
Francis Ferrari's wild animal show
which gives not only cage exhibitions
but an arena performance of 20 lions.
This show will be the same as that now
at the Pan-American Exposition, ex
cept on a smaller scale. It carries a
great many famous artists, and among
Its attractions is a troupe of live Jep-
anese who give astounding slide for
life and posturing acts. It also has
the greatest cri'stal maze in existence.
It embraces fifty-two mirrors seven
feet high by five feet wide. Then there
will be "a trip to the moon" and we
will see the flying woman, a grand
curiosity, streets of various nations,
and a variety of trapeze, acrobatic and
contortionists acts and vaudeville per
formances. With the show is "Mrs.
Murphy," the monkey balloonist, which
goes up in a balloon and makes a para
chute leap to earth just like a human
being. There is also a dog, pony and
monkey show for the benefit of chil
dren. There are also many features
that It is impossible to enumerate with
out a bill.
It will take twenty blocks ot the
streets of Wilmington to exhibit this
show alone. The Elks committee is to
designate the points at which the ex
hibitions are to be made but it is more
than probable that it will be on Front
street from walnut to orange street,
nnd on "Market from Water to Fifth
street. In each angle of the street's
crossing Front street and Market street
h features of the show will be locat
ed. In addition to the Bostock-Ferrari
company's shows to which admission is
fharired thev cive nine free exhibitions
Including the thrilling act of Professor
Grant in riding on a bicycle over a high
electric wire. He will wear an electric
suit, the wire will contain electric
lights, and his wheel will be ablaze
The Bostock-Ferrari people make low
rates with the railroads, and they get
a low rate everywhere they snow. 1 ney
will begin negotiations at once and it
Is a certainty that they will get a rate
that will overrun WilmlnErton with
eeoDle. The entire aggregation is to be
tYrnne-ht here from Richmond, and it
will be the same that created such sen
sations in Brooklyn, Baltimore, Savan
nah and Atlanta. TCvervwheic it shows
the people of the various cities are sure
to secure it lor anotner season.
Besides the attraction mentioned
above the Elks will secure man
others, and of course many will come
without being Invited. The Elks will
furnish the features and attractions
and' the people will do the rest. The
merchants will be given the privilege
of erecting booths in front of their
stores for the purpose of displaying
and selling their wares. These booths
will extend from the pavement nearly
to the street car track, allowing suf
ficient room for the cars and vehicles
to pass. This booth feature will be one
of the most attractive of the carnival
as each merchant will decorate and vie
with the other in making his booth
Street fairs have been great successes
pvprvwhprp and the invariable rule is
that when a city has one, its citizens
readily subscribe to have them again.
Richmond's carnival was a great suc
cess last year and we understand that
the merchants of that city will sub
scribe $30,000 this year to have a carni
val to eclipse that of last year.
Charleston, Augusta. Macon and At
lanta all will have carnivals again.
One who knows, says it is the biggest
thing out for a city and certainly the
biggest thing for the merchants.
The Elks will ask the Board of Al
dermen for concessions to use tne
streets but there is no aouDt. out xnat
they will get all they want. The object
of the carnival will be to augment the
-Elks charity fund, so they will be in
a position to aid the poor again tnis
winter. It will never be forgotten how
the Elks distributed their charity last
jprfnter rwhen the city was wrapped in ice
and snow, the members of the order
themselves paying for and hauling
wood to hundreds of distressed families.
The Elks have gone iato it deep now,
and they propose to make their carni
val a great success. While it will be
managed by the Elks, It will be of two
fold benefit it will benefit the order
and be a great benefit to the city from
the great crowds it will bring here to
help the business of Wilmington.
Sad Death at Kenansvllle.
The sad Intelligence was received In
the city yesterday of the death of Mrs.
Julia Sanford, eldest daughter of Mr.
Henry Farrior. She passed away on
Sunday night about midnight, and it is
all the sadder that at the time her
"husband was far away In Texas, being
a well known traveling man. Mr. and
Mrs. Sanford had only been married "a
year last" April-, 7 She was a most lova

SAVED A COLORED BOY.
Mr. Alex Greenabaum' Heroic Act
at Masonboro Sound on Sunday
Mr. B. F. King is summering at the
Grainger cottage aon Masonboro sound,
and on Sunday Mr. Alex Greenabam
was his guest. That morning, Mr.
King got Tom Jordan a 13-year-old
colored boy to bring them a boat and
carry the party round out into the
sound to enjoy themselves. Tom ac
companied them, and in the party were
Mr. Greenabaum, Mr. King, his little
sons. Frank and Hiram, and his little
nephews Harry and James Allen. Af
ter crabbing and wading about in the
sound, the party dragged the boat over
a shallow stretch and went in bathing
near the channel
When Mr. Greenabaum reached a
place that was over his head he warn
ed the boys not to go further than a
certain point. He proposed to take
Master Frank King on his back and
swim in deep water and the little fel
low consented. When they got out into
deep water, the colored boy got in over
his head and began to drown. This
frightened Master King and he seized
Mr. Greenabaum around the neck
and came nearly drawing both of them.
Mr. Greenabaum, however, got him into
boat, and taking only a few seconds to
get his breath he went to the rescue of
the colored boy. He had sunk the last
time and only the tips of his fingers
could be seen above water. By the
time Mr. Greenabaum got to him he
had gone clear out of sight but he
dived and swam with him with one
arm to the boat, holding his head above
water all the time. He held on to the
boat and kept the boy's head above wa
ter till they pushed it ashore- The lit
tie darkey, very fortunately, came to,
and owes his life to Mr. Greenabaum.

"I had a severe attack of bilious colic,
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic
Cholera and Diarrhoea Kemedy, took
two doses and was entirely cured,"
says Rev. A. X. Power, of Emporia,
Kan. "My neighbor across the street
was sick for over a week, had two or
three bottles of medicine from the doc
tor. He used them for three or four
days without relief, then called In an
other doctor who treated him for some
days and gave him no relief, so dis
charged him. I went over to see him
the next morning. He said his bowels
were In a terrible fix, that they had
been running off 60 long that it was al
most bloody flux. I asked him if he
had tried Chamberlain's Colic. Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy and he said,
'No.' I went home and brought him my
bottle and gave him one dose; told him
to take another dose in fifteen or twen
ty minutes if he did not find relief, but
he took no more and was entirely
cured." For sale by R. R. Bellamy,

Strike of Steel Workers Presents Serl
oas Problem May Stop Cottoa Move
ment Unless It lie Adjostel Before
Heaw Shipment Begin.
A shortage of cotton ties that will af
fect not only Savannah and the sur
rounding cotton growing country, but
the whole of the cotton belt, is already
being felt here, and as a result the
price of ties, usually $1.05 a bundle,
now ranges from $1.10 to 51-25 a bundle,
and at least one party is holding a lot
of 2.000 for $1.35.
The shortage is caused by the strike
of the Amalgamated Association of
Iron. Steel and Tin Workers and the
consequent shut-down of the Stee
Hoop Company's mill, the chief source
of the tie supply.
Contracts with the manufacturers
were made early in the year, January
February and March, for a quantity
sufficient to meet the demand and the
factors had every reason to believe that
the stock, or at least the greater part
of it had been made up long before the
strikers went out, but to their urgent
demand for shipments on contracts
made since the opening of the season
they have been told that stock to meet
the contracts was not on hand. The
manufacturers stated that they had
only a small quantity of ties and that
they would be prorated among the fac

that the present supply can last but

The diseases most feared are those which arc
inherited handed down iron generation to gen
eration, and family to family. By far tire most
destructive of these is Cancer, which finds the
greatest number of its victims among the children
and frrand-children of those whose blood was tainted
with this dreadful malady. You may carry this poison in the blood for years, but
as the vital powers begin to wane a slight braise or cut. wart or mole, sore or
pimple may develop into Cancer. From middle life to old age is the time whea
the slumbering poison is most apt to break out, a sore or ulcer often degenerating
into Cancer, and Tumors become more progressive and ulcerate through the sxin,
the sharp, shooting pains causing the most intense suiTcring.
The Cancer patient naturally grows despondent as one after another the usual
remedies fail, and the sore shows no sign of healing. The impurities that hare
been accumulating in the system, perhaps for generations, cannot be eliminated nor
the poisoned blood made pure by salves, washes and plasters. The proper treatment
is to purify and build up the blood, remove the cause, when the sore or ulcer heals.
