gala day Irom start to flulsh a picnic
alike lor old people, younn pwiplu, fnt
people, leui people, ull people, short
people and all kind ol pooplo and
mall boy with gray headed guardians.
Tho show train wan lato In getting
bars, not arriving until about 1 1 o'clock,
but litis did not prevont It carrying out
1U lull program. An advaulago wm ol
io rod by Its being lata III that tbe un
loading process oould be and was wit
nessed by pretty nearly everybody. Tbo
parado instead ol beinir niadu at ton
o'clock wm nolon until alter two o'olook,
but this lact In no way detracted Iroin
lla grandeur. It waa a ilnu presentation
ol many things beautiful. Tliuro woro
lour bands and a callloo. Tho Vcr
moot larmor driving his trained pig
and ha riding In thu little oarl waa one
ol Uio lunny loaturea ol llio purade,
while tho automobile, or horseless car
riage, waa odo ol llio moat interesting.
Aa a wholo, tho parade was untune,
novel and grand throughout. Thu en
terulnmonlfollowing lie medlatuly alter
tbo parade waa In many ways far super
ior to any thlnir over presented in South
ern Oregon. The Irapcto performance
by tho Wurnta lamlly, tlx In number,
throe ladles and three gentlemen whs
the most marvelous aerial teat the
writer baa over wltncsHod; the pony rid
ing upon tbo books ol two homes was
another wondorlul leaf, the acrobatic
act by the Livingstones In lull droits waa
ilsolt a lealuro worth tho prico ol ad
mission j tho Vormont larmcr with his
trained pigs was thu wonder ol nil it
has boon aiild that a pig is incapublo ol

boon found to tho gonornl rule. All in
ell, tho Walter L. Main circus Is a grand
foaluro throughout, and none the least
ol tho many attractions waa thu sixty
tliroo trained horses. Tho show entire
waa moral In every particular. Thoro
waa no harsh or olmcouo language usud
by any ol thuciiiplovos. The mauagurs,
Messrs. J. 1). and Hugh Harrison, arc
splendid gentlemen and their efforts to
treat everybody courteously was a fea
ture not often displayed by managers of
big shows. For tho afternoon perform
ance thoro woro nearly 8000 tickets sold
but in tho ovonlng tho attendanco was
not so largo. Thore was no disturbance
of any kind everything was quiet and
orderly all the day through, and this,
too, was remarkable when li is consid
ered tbat tho crowd was tho largest
ever congregated In Jackson County.
The merchants did a splendid business
all day and Til a Mail was nono tho

cause of the usual good orop in tho
