The first of the four clrcu trains

Then cam the procession through th
streets. And there Is always that peculiar
something about the neighing of the
hotees, the deep rumble of th wagon
wheels end the clanking of the hsroess
which every community lilies to hear nt
least once a year and which affects one
with that Indescribable longing for tha
white tenU which, for want of a better
phraae, I culled "red wagon fever."
At th old clrcu grounds the scene Is
one of methodical turmoil. Mon empty
huge wagons and begin pitching the din

which twenty minutes later ha been fired
and la alive with slsxllng egg and bacon.
Another wagon discloses a mammoth
boiler that as quickly emits steam which,
carried to Immense caldrons by means of
hose, Is merrily boiling potatoes or turn

MILLIONS OF RABBITS A YEAR
Growth of a Peat la Tasmania that
Has Created m Sertoes
As in other states In Australia, the
problem of dealing with the rabbit pest
haa been slven considerable attention by
farmers and pastorallsts In Tasmania fori
The matter wa taken up by the Farm
ers' and Stockowners' association - at a
recent meeting of the council of that body.
Among other things It was stated that
information had been collected bearing
upon the trade in rabbit skin In this
state. The figures Indicated that not less
than B.000.CO9 skins were exported from
Tasmania each year, the value of which
was under $230,000.
As poison was also generally used for
destroying the pest, it was quite safe to
assume that as many more were killed,
making the death roll equal to 10,000.000.
Adding to that at least 2,000,000 left at
the end of each winter to breed again, the
conclusion was arrived at that the lands
of the state were growing every year
Taking these figure as a basis and al
lowing fifteen rabbits to consume a much
grass as one sheep, It waa computed that
the rabbit waa occupying the place of
800,000 sheep, or. In other words, taking
up about one-third of the lands, for which
the state received under 1250,000, as
against the value of 900,009 sheep, which
would not be less than 11,600,000 at a low
estimate. New lork Sun.
