Without a doubt one of the
most iuleresling features of a
circus is the unloading . of the
show and its equipment. Im
mediately upon the arrival work
commences. The men are divided
into squads, named according to
their respective duties. The
squads are known as the car, tent,
slake, animal, driver, cooking and
ring squads. Early in the morn
ing all but the last named squads
are at work.
The animal and driver squads
are at work as soon as the switch
ing has finished. The horses are
fed and harnessed. The drivers
are divided into two classes, those
who take tho wagons, tents, poles,
etc., to the show grounds, and
those who drive the teams that
assist in the unloading'.
There are six teams and drivers
employed in unloading the Yankee
Ilobinsoi Shows. Three teams are
used in hauling the wagons down
tho inclines from the cars to the
ground. Three more teams are
employed in taking tho wagons
from Iho edge of the incline to a
place out of the way, so work will
not be impeded by waiting for
those who are employed in taking
I be wagons to the show ground.
One man hooks a rope to the
wagon first in line, while two more
men are busy guiding Hie tongue
from one car to another dow n I he
incline. To the rear of the
wagon another rope is fastened
so as lo steady it as it goes down
I be incline. One man is busy
working with this rope, which is
wound about a stake well fastened
to the unloading car.
Two or three teams are hitched
lo each wagon to take it to the
grounds. 'There are about ten

While this work is going on the
animal squads are preparing their
animals for removal. They unload
them and take them to the
grounds, whore they are carefully
groomed for the morning parade.
Three hours is sufficient lime
for the unloading and transfer
ring of all equipments.
There are about one hundred
men in these squads, each squad
having its own boss. Tho work
ing of those squads is very sys
tematic, so as lo economize time.
