What a tremendous list of attrac tions is offered by the Adam Fore paugh shows, to be sure! It includes a circus, a menagerie, a museum, an aviary, a hippodrome and the splen did glories of the sublime, historical representation of the scenes and bat tles of 177(i the American revolu tion. Such a list is almost stagger ing to ordinary comprehension. Cer tainly nothing1 approaching it in magnificence and grandeur has ever before been seen in either America or Europe. Over 200 of the highest skilled, best trained and most daring of all'performers in a circus, includ ing t'ue wild warrior Cossacks of the czar, the tirst of their race to be seen in America; over 200 rare wild beasts constituting a veritable com pendium of natural history; dozens of the rarest of nature's marvels aTid wildest fancies in animal existence in the museum; a college of ornithol ogical wonders in the aviary; more than a score of daring, thrilling, comical and novel races in the hippo drome, and the entire strength of t he shows 1,'HO people in the repre sentation of the revolutionary war; all forming a monstrous aggregation the like of which has never before been seen, and all is placed within easy reach of the masses at a trifling cost of only t) cents. Truly this is an age of marvels, and one wonders how much larger circus shows can be made. It was generally supposed that the limit of immensity had been reached when the great shows were here last, but in view of their grand eur this year there seems to be no limit to the expansive magnificence of the Adam Forepaugh shows.

An early settler, who prides him self as being something of a prog nostic.ator, was heard to venture the assertion recently that there would be no rain before the middle of August.
