to be the largest, this is said to be
one of the best shows on the road.
and its 1921 tour has been most sue
Given as the principal reason for
this is the fact that the manage
merit has spared neither money or
trouble to make their performances
the equal of any ever presented un
der a circus canvas. The regular
cirrus program is opened with a
beautiful patriotic ensemble, which
serves to introduce the, entire per
sonnel from the big dressing rooms.
Then, with blood-stirring music
from the large concert band, the
acts follow each other in bewilder
ing rapidity. Prominent among the
disnlavs are the Crillion troupe in a
series of new and daring feats in
the air and on the ground, the Dav
ennort faniilv of Riders, the Azuki
herd of performing elephants, Ro
chetta, the man who walks on his
head, and a score of other acts. The
clowns number 25 and include some
of the funniest jesters known. Al
most three hours of solid enojyment
is given those who attend, and this
is augmented by a thrilling Wild
West exhibition entitled "The Pass
ing of the West."
There will be the usual free street
parade at noonday. Performances
start at 2 and 8 p. m. Doors open

THE OLD FAITHFUL
Many geysers of the Yellowstone
National Park throw up their col
umns of water at irregular intervals.
Only the Old Faithful throws up a
column of hot water 2 feet in diam
eter to a height of ISO feet at regu
lar intervals of 65-70 minutes. Trail
er's Bitter Wine is a remedy which
desf-rves the same name. It is the
old faithful preparation which thor
oughly , cleans the bowels in a few
hours, removes gases from the intes
tines and restores the normal func
tions &i the body. It is a home rem
edy in the noblest sense of the word,
"semper fidelis," always faithful, as
the Latin phrase sa3'S. Here is one
of the testimonials showing the feel
ings of our customers: "Virden. 111.
Please hasten on the execution of my
order as much as possible. I do not
