Coles Creat Circus.
The Kansas City Journal thus pre
sents a fair illustration of the attrao
ttons of W. W. Cole's mammoth shows:
It says: "At night was estimated that
fullr 19.000 people were under the
canvas and even then the doors were
closed at 7:30 and thousands turned
war. Among the spectators in ihe
afternoon wero tho families of Ray
tnond and Koene, the actors.
It seems that tragedians and coin
edians as well as othor earthly mortals
!1 appreciate a show like Cole's, and
well they may as it is probably the
best in the world.
