and skillful training have been
taught to willingly preform
seemingly impossible stunts. In

mate of man, preforming the
icaviest work with exactitude
and percission, and obeying his
alightest wish or command. With

shrew&rtof all animals and can
be taught many sensational
tricks- It is hard for the public

tain of flesh playing upon miycal
instruments but thie ’,is exactly
what you will see in Jones Bros’
