STORY OF THE CIRCUS.

creditable performances. The"show
i hotiglr not large it gay vivacious
and far above the average. The base
drums have as much tune as Bar-
num's aud the side show attractions
are plunged no deeper in the sear and
yellow leaf than when tbey advertis-
ed for au opeuiug.
The street parade was good and
was witnessed by large crowds.
The ring performance contains
mauy new ana excellent ieatures.
i his is a bold assertion to make in
behalf of a circus but it's diamond
The tents were packed with people
at both performances and every body
seemed pleased. Among the special
features were Miss Blanche Reed
bare back rider McCree Brothers
acrobats aud the Stillwell tfrothers.
The circus people are all courteous
and accommodating and will meet
wih success this season. The press
agent is a geuial mtm and endeavors
to make patrons comfortable.
Taken as a whole Howe & Cush-
iug have out a good show which is
deserving of patronage. Guthrie
