tho May Festival why not try and secure the
Davis Fifth Avenue Company to return and
play another engagement. Notwithstand
ing the excellent house this good company
played to there were enough kept at home by
the very dlnagreeablo weather to have filled
the house twice over. This company's re
duced ratet of admission are so low for Mich
superior entertainment that we believe they
could plsy for mouths and tho ptibllo never
tiro. When wo can pans a pleasant evening
and arrive home feeling better able to cope
with th struggle of life, for a price so smtll
as to be almost ridiculous, we feel wo are ro
gardlng the Davis company as real mission

Already tho circus-loving jwrtlon of this
community is on the tip-too of expectancy
over the coming of tho old rcllablo Lemon
Bros, aggregation; nnd It can be set down as
a certainty that it will attract Iremondous
crowds. Ths proprietors of this well known
establishment, who aro among the acknowl
edged loaders of the circus business of Amer
ica, are said to havo outdone all previous ef
forts In this line, both in tho novelty of the
entertainment and in tho wonderful features
exhibited. The securing of the famous
Ilojah, the largest elephant on earth, at a
cost of over A5,00, and tho enormous out
lay of cash is evidence that the managers of
this great show are 'bo'iud to exhibit to Its
patrons something now and worthy the great
name and reputation it already has. The
show will be soen hero May 30.
