The great Wallace circus which will bc in Falls City on ' 1 ' iesday. May : 31 , has been doing phcnom- cnal business this season. : Most of the places it visits have been visited by thc Wallace show al- most annually , and it is because of thc familiarity of thc public with the excellence of thc 'V\l.l- lace circus that such crowds at- tend it. Under the circumstances liberal patronage is thc highest possible recommendation for this show. The real worth and merit of thc great Wallace show have tak- cn such a hold upon thc public that it sccms nothing can restrain people from attending its per- formances. It is a common tiling for this show to play to very crowded tents every day , and nothing unusual for it to tUrtl thousands of people away from ten of thc twelve performances every week. Another pleasing thing to thc managemelt of thc Wallace show is thc fact that as its crowds disperse after the performance - formancc the universal opinion of the people is : u'Phc best I ever sa w . " Wc clipped the following para- graph from the Ohio State Jour- nal of Col1ttnbuf , 0. : uColumbus had ideal circus weather Friday , and the great \Vallacc : shows gave the citizens an ideal circus cntcrtainmcnt. The general verdict of thousands of people who had thc pleasure of witnessing - ing thc exhibitions in thc aftcr- noon and evening b that the Wallace shows arc in the front rank of lirst-class tented entertainments - tainmcnts , and as caterers to thc auulsenient-lovingpublic the management - agement is in a class by itsclf. "At the afternoon performance thc big tent was filled to its capacity , but all records were broken at thc nigh cxhibition. 'l'hc crush was so great that it bccamc necessary to close thc doors twenty minutes before thc performance began , and fully 4,000 people were refused admis- sion. That thc large crowd was greatly pleased with thc performance - ance was shown by thc hearty applause whIch greeted every number on the program , " _ ' 1'lie great Wallace show will give two performances in Falls City 'l'ucsday , Iay 31. .
