Sells & Gray's circus lias como
and gone. Crowded houses witnessed - '
nessod both the afternoon and evening -
ing porformancos. The small boy
baa been July tempted to leave IDS
happy homo and win immortal fame
under the canvas. The Hiuall girl
ban hold hoc breath , while larger
and cousidorably older girls have
performed daring feats on the
trapc/.Q or swung high in the air
with only a strap clenched in their
tooth for support. It was a great
day for Young America ; likewise
for older America , or at least for a
'goodly ' portion thereof.
Sells & Gray's show is worth the
price. There are somu mighty
clover things in U. The place of
honor must go to the Eddy family ,
all-round acrobats and tumblers.
The family consists of man , women
and a olovor child , 7 yoara of age.
This' pracocious youngster was
brought on the staga in a basket of
flowers , and ho can tumble to boat

The JbJddy family docs not appear

the women in long skirts. They

work , and they do it well. Tumb

To Minn Edna Marietta , the bareback -
back rider , should bo given the
second phco of honor. She ia a
wondo ? . She sits lightly on the
back of a beautiful milkwhUo horse
while that animal cantors around
thu ring , and performs wonderful
foats. A streamer is raised ever
the horse's back , and Miss Edna
first jumps ever this streamer as the
horao passes under it , and on the
next round she turna a somersault
over it nnd lights on her foot. U
was this performance that caused
the audience to hold its breath.
Ouo of the features of the Bbo.w
IH known as "tho woman with the
iron jaw. " She is one ot the Tyboll
sisters. Wjrappod in the American
Hag , she olasps a strap which is
riv/ntod to the orid of a rope , and is
hr/uled / to the ceiling. With only
the strength of her jaws to prevent
bor from falling to the ground , she
swings round and round , gradually
increasing her momentum until aho
looks like a red , wblto and blue
spinning top whirling iu midair.
When she coraos down she is so
dizzy flic reels , and has to bo led
off the stage by her sister , who al
so has a jaw that is no slouch.
The Earl sisters , Maud aud Hazel ,
also perform aerial feats that are
hair-raising. They leap from
trapeze to trapeze with startling
agility , and add much to the gbo'd
part of the show.
And wo munn't forgot the Bovo *
lapus. Chained in the main en
trance tent , this remarkable product
of the jungle attracted wide atten
tion. It is probably the ug4iest
specimen of animal creation that
over came ever the piko.
Ouo thing that can bo said for
Sells ifc Gray's cirous is that things
happen when they ought to. Every
thing moves like clockwork. There
was no disorder and no accidents.
