number of artists who begged the
privilege of making sketches of her
pretty face. Too gracious to refuse
she freely granted permission In every

llnrrymore posed was a young artist
of the impressionist school, who. after
considerable labor, produced a ghastly
yellow and green portrait which was
supposed by the budding artist, at

A big modern circus ann menagerie
probably embraces more different
kinds of system and discipline than
any other business in which men en
sage for profit. It 1* a fact not gen

total of a possible two hundred.
Where tbey go no one knows. They
start out bouyantly enough, but som -
how they never seem to get back.
When one considers that thla ha*
been going on in America for the past
seventy-live year*, It l really remark
able that so few men have succeeded
in the circus business. It seem*,
pretty clear that a variety of genius
not common is necessary to becornc
successful circus proprietor.
There are only three or four wel!
known circus names today, and two
of them, "llagenbeck" and "Wallace,
are among the most prominent. The

Horse*. Animal* and Cages
The movement which was attempts
ed a few years aso to eliminate the
parade feature of clrcua day has sig-
nally failed, and tie Hageubeck-Wal-
lace Combined Shows were instru-
mental In retaining that part of the
circua which is enjoyed by thousands
«bo are not able to attend the per
formances. When this enterprise visits
this city Tuesday, Bepieuiber 28, tho
populace will turn out en masse, for
they have the reputation of making
a street parade well worth taking
time to see.
While only a small percentage of
the people can own automobiles and
appreciate them, every man, woman
and child admires a beautiful horse
For years the name of Wallace haa
ibeen aynonomous for "fine horses,'
because be himself has always per-
sonally taken a pride in horse flesh.
When he first embarked in the show
business he adopted as a slogan "The
finest horses of any show on earth."
and that he has lived up to it is at-
tested by the million* of people who
have seen the Wallace parade.
The Carl llagenbeck Trained Ani-
mal Shows have always been credited
with having the best trained wild
beasts ever exhibited, and since these
two shows have combined the display
of the wild animals in the open cages
adds an unusual feature to a parade
that had already gained a national
reputation because of Its brilliancy
According to the dally Bchednle It
Is the plan to have the parade on tho
streets at 10 o'clock, and this Is gen-
erally done The very nature of th«

to be right on the dot. But rather
