Forepaugh-Sells circus Is all that It
N advertised to be Immense , clean ,
up-to-date , novel and well worth one's
time and money. Crowds lingered
about the tents and thronged the
streets during the morning and after
noon and there Is ptomise that many
of them will remain to the night per
formance , some of them expecting to
take It In after having seen the after
noon program. Many will remain un
til the last wagon Is loaded and un
til the last train has sped toward

day that will linger long In the mem

can he calculated that the favorable
Impression they have left behind will
stand them In good stead In Inducing
the attendance of a crowd.
