by Mrs. Baldwin whom he expected to

to proceed from there down towards the

A Business Education.
The Portland business college established
sixteen years aujo has proven a success, and
during the school year ju3t past, was at

years of age, among whom were a number

and is held in high esteem by those who
have attended it and its graduates stand well
among businessmen. Messrs. J. O. Wilson,
J. W. Foster and F. L. Wright of this
county have all been students in the school
under the present managers.. The school
is under the management of A. P. Arm
strong as principal assisted by secretary
J. A. Wesco who is one of the finest in pen

for the present year will be found in another

The first performance of Sherman's circus
company took place last evening and was
attended by an audience which packed
their large tent so that standing room was
the order early in the evening. Since the
appearance of this troupe nearly two years
ago several important changes have been
made to the variety of the exhibition due
to the addition of artists of singular merit
in acrobatic and gymnastic acts. The
strong feature of Sherman's circus has al
ways been the wonderful performances of
his trained horses, and each season sees
some new trick done by the intelligent ani
mals which makes one wonder where the
limit will be.
Last evening the two horses "Tommy"
and "Barney" went throagh their lessoes
with all the precision of veter.ins, and the
former seemed to enjoy his low comedy
part thoroughly. The bareback riding and
vaulting of Mr. Joe Williams with his hair
less horse was very daring, and Miss Kate
Cross with her dashing steed "Danger,"
gave a brilliant exhibition of horsemanship.
The most interesting part of the perform
ance was that of August Siegris on the
tight rope, who reminded us of the un
equaled Gabriel Ravel. This afternoon a
matinee will be given at 2 o'clock, when
the prices of adfhission will be reduced to
one-half. In the evening an entire change
of programme will be given. Chieo Chron
