It was his intention to proceed from there down towards the ocean beach where he might engage his at tention with the rod and line. His outfit was a peculiar one consisting of a couple of reels, a fly book, about a halt dozen artificial flies and a vessel that looked like it had once contained snake bite.

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 icle.
