Old Time Acrobat Says
"Boys have a prstty easy time nowa
(flays." aatd the old clrcua acrobat
"When I began to work, a boy waa treat
ed like ao much soft metal that had to
be hammered Into shape, if he missed
a trick he usually cot a cuff at the aide
of the head, and If he didn't pick up
efter this It sometimes went a good deal
further and left him with black and blue
marks. That waa the way of doing
things then, and boys were treated aa
If they had just so much etuptdlty that
bad to be knocked out. This la all
changed, and I am glad of It. Young
sters In these days are coddled and
looked after like ao many tenderlings
that would wither and split under a stiff
Tarsus at rive..
"I was a German turner at the age of
I, and at the age of 10 the bara and
trapese were playthings for me that
made the old folks' eyes stand out with
pleasure. When a showman came along
and offered to take me with him, my
head nearly spun off Its pivot. The
old folks were wild at the Idea, and It
took a long time to talk them Into a be
lief that it would be a good thing for me
to hook up with- this showman, who
would watch over me and be responsible
tor me. I think the old people were
brought around more by the Idea that I
would run away If they didn't consent,
and that would make the future a whole
lot worse for me.
"Well, sir. I don't think my mind ever
bad so many pleasant pictures In It as

SOMERSAULTING FROM SHOULDER TO SHOULDER.
at this time, when looking ahead at the
Imagined charms of a circus performer's
career. I took to the work like a duck
takes to water, and although I saw a
good deal of the old-fashioned method
of treating slow Juveniles, I must say
that I was treated pretty well and had
no great cauae for complaint. I grew
fast and atrong, and took great pride In
accomplishing new tricks.
"Before I was 11 I married, and be
fore long little ones came Into my care.
X liked the work and began to think of
making my boys professional acrobats.
How to do this without any of the harsh
ness of which I had been a witness, and
which waa a tradition of the business,
made me think a good deal. I got the
boys Interested In their work by telling
them of the great rewarda success would
bring them and by winning their confi
dence. Children Are Confident.
"The confidence of a child la a won
derful thing, and will make them forget
all fear. By the old way of teaching,
when a boy made a slip, he got a blow
with a stick as well as a hard fall.
That would take the courage out of a
nan or a beast, so what could you ex
pect from a child T I lust took the other
course and used encouraging words. Of
course, the great thing Is to avoid ac
cidents, and I watched every move and
took every precaution to thla end. Then
X took the little fellow on my shoulder
and taught him to stand erect while I
reeled around. If I felt there waa going
to be a fall I forgot the wheel and my
self and everything to save the child.
In this way the little fellow learns that
bis protector's eye Is ever open for him,
and him only, and he gains confidence
iwlth every effort
Aids Kelp Beginners.
"In these days mechanical devices are
weed to prevent accident. Although per
formers claim that It Is better not to
mflke use of them, aa they are apt to
mnke the learner lean too much upon
outside aid, they are generally found
rigged up In training quarters. One of

ANNUAL SALE, TEN MILLION BOXES
these Is called a 'mechanic' It la a sort
of body harness, which leavea the arma
and legs free, and from which a rope
extends to a pulley on the celling,
thence nlong some distance to another
pulley, and down Into the handa of aJ
strung manipulator, wnen me cnua is
standing on another's shoulders and
whirling around In the three' or 'four
high.' aa the act la called by acrobats.
If be wavers or falls the' man at the rope
has but to pull It, suspending htm In
midair and letting him down to the floor
softly. Tou can see by thla that there la
not much danger to life or limb for a
juvenile training thla way. and no rea
son follows why be should not gain com
Assistants Pievoui Accidents.
"Another safeguard In training Is to
have level-headed assistants. Some of
the tricks done are very difficult and
dangerous, as for Instance the so-called
four high.' A fall lri this act would
mean serious things, snd be apt to up
set the confidence of a child performer.
After the" little fellow has learned to
balance himself aloft, without calling
too much on the man at the rope, the
"mechanic' Is dispensed with, and two
keen helpers follow the act around the
circle ready to catch the child If he
should wayer and fall. Theae men never
leave the child In this act until he has
thoroughly mastered the art of balanc
ing up high, and has the most perfect
confidence in himself. Even after the
youngster has shown great self-reliance,
there la danger of a lapse, and only
weeks of patient training upon a slnglo
perilous set can Justify the risk of a
Initial Delights Of Child.
"Thla first public exhibition repays the
child for all the hard work and dis
couragement of the training. The mu
sic, lights, the enormous crowds of at
tentive people and the applause which
comes after the beet feats, sink Into the
Juvenile nature with delight too sweet
for. words. He feels that after all the
many months of hard work, and the
dangers of It he baa been able to do
aomethlng which not only lifts htm
above all, those of his own age, but
makes all the grown people marvel.'
"It makes his blood tingle and makes
future training for htm a pastime
rather than a penance, and when he
opens a little bank account of his own.
he feels that he Is on the high road to
Independence, If not wealth, he la thank
ful to those who took sq much pains in
his behalf, and shows It more and more
by the delightful seal of hla practice
to achieve greater feats.
Youngsters Full of Steam.
"From this time on. a father must
look out sharply ies,t the enthusiastic
youngster overtaxes his strength, and
grows stale. The boy Is now full of
steam, and moves around as If the world
was an easy thing for him. He Is a
long waya from the boy that has to be
driven to split wood or hoe a potato
"Often when we are traveling through
the country, I get the Ringllng Brothers
to give me a day off and go. on a Ash
ing trip Into the country. Sundays we
always go Into the country. Sometimes
for an aimless long tramp, sometimes
for a fishing trip and sometimes to
shoot, but never to work .over the new
feats. I believe in boys out doors, and
my boys are as fond of the woods as a
Young Kinds Cultivated.
"Of course, boys must study some,
but that after all is not the most im
portant thing.' Give a boy a good strong
body, and the study will come easy
enough later, and be will do his studylryr
better. Two or three hours every morn
ing my boys are busy with -their books,
snd they are always glad to get at them.
Their bodies are strong, the flesh on
their cheeks is firm and rosy and they
never have any sickness. Llvlnc out
doors aa they do, practically physically,
aa they must, and always this care, be
fore mentioned, I fall to see wherein
their lot could be bettered much In any
other situation they might be placed.
Circus Life Xa Healthy.
"My good health and vigor. I credit to
the circus life I have lived. A man who
depends for his living upon a clear eye.
ateady nerve, and strong arm, must walk
carefully In the way of living. Of
course, he must miss a good many pleas
urea common to the ordinary man, but
then be remembers the exchange of
health, vigorous old age and happiness,
that comes to htm, and I don't think
he feels very badly. Only the other
day I met an old acrobat who had turned
16 and he was as hearty a looking old
man as I ever aaw. He stood aa straight
ss a rod, and he looked as sturdy ami
alert as a broad-shouldered athlete of 30

Lsrry Sullivan, the former sailor

no serious results would follow unless
blood poisoning set In.
Moody conducts a "tl" game at the

A few days ago Sullivan entered the

before he taouftit to wire the bank.
Since then bad blood has existed be
