LIFE OF CIRCUS GIRLS

LIFE BEHIND SCENES LIKE
What about tho circus girl f Isn't'
Bhe an impossible person, of hard face
and uncertain morals!
These aro some of the questions that
will be asked next Saturday by tho j
throngs of sightseers who will crowd I
the sidewalks durinir tho moraine hour i
when tho circus parado is passing, and

who will visit tiio show grounds of the
Barnnm & Bailey Greatest IShcw on

who lire attached to the l'armim &,
Hailcy circus this season, nearly 400 of
them ar young womon, either ring per
formers or ballet girls. Hence it can
easily be understood that the women
are one of the most important adjuncts
of the circus.
As a matter of fact the majority of
circus girls are the most refreshing,
the healthiest and the cleanest minded
young women ever assembled together.
Many of the so-called 'girls" are mar
ried women with young daughters and
sons, who are also with the circus.
There is little difference between the
girls "of the circus and the ordinary,
healthy girls who live in comt'urtablc,
refined homes, except that tho life ot
the circus girl is in the open, where she
has a be'.ter opportunity to develop
both "physically and mentally.

French have scored some of the most
important gains of the whole Homme
offensive. They have increased the
pressure on Peronne and south of the
river have drawn so close to the Chaul-nes-Peronue
railway that the line of
communication is now under hot fire
and useless to the Germans.
The Germans attempted an attack on
Fleury northeast of Verdun last night.
French fire held the enemy to their
trenches at most places. Forty prisoners
were taken. In Lorraine a surprise. at

THE FIRST STEP
Usually the first indication of a
lowering of health is found in the
bowels and liver. Something goes
wrong we cat too much, or work
too hard and the bowel action
weakens or the liver is sluggish.
That heavy feeling on arising in
the morning, dryness of the
throat, with bad taste, a slight
headache, dull eyes all show that
food has fermented in the intes
tines, and that the body is man

stomach and bowels a fresh start.

HEALTIJY AND MORAL
BIG FAMILY IN CAMP
Life behind the reil curtain which
separates tho dressing rooms from the
rest of the circus is not unlike that of
a big family in camp. Here the women
do their own sewing, their laundry,
their reading and writing and the in
struc'.ing of their young children. No

Many entire families ranging from

of home life. In some of the ring acts
three generations of a family aro per
forming at the same time. Most of the
really great circus performers of today
are descendants of a long line of cir
cus ancestors, and their success in their
chosen field is largely due to the her
itage of clean living and clean think

generation to generation.
On account of the new, Oriental spes-

Took Four Years to
San Francisco, Sept. S. John A. De
lion, Philadelphia, established a trans
'lontinental transportation kecord to
day when he was pushed up to the
city, hall in his "donkeymobile," the
motive power of which consumes hay
instead of gasoline. The record Delion
established is the rocord for slowness.
The trip across the continent consum
ed four years and Delion says he hur-
neii, at tuat.
The "donkeymobile" is an automobile-appearing
vehicle, pushed by a
donkey pushed, not pulled. The jaunt
was made on a bet.
Several accidents marred the long
journey. While Delion was crossing
the Arizona desert, his motive power
kicked him in the head anil rendered
him unconscious tor several hours.
Want to Know Why
Governor Was Removed
San Francisco, Sept. 5. Just what
circumstances caused Captain William
J. Maxwell, governor of Guam, to be
removed by a subordinate, Lieutenant
Commander William P. Cronan, and
sent to the naval hospital at Washing
ton, the navy department intends to
learn. Captain .William B. Shoemaker
is here today awaiting a steamer to
take him to Guam where he can make
a detniled inquiry. Cronan 's action fol
lowed immediately his arrivel in Guam
where he was sent as a disciplinary
measure on account of prominence in
a departmental dissention. His friends
say that he found the governor in a
state of mental collapse, and took the
action to meet the emergency, himself
temporarily appointing Captain C.
Smith as governor.

Johnson Will Not Stump
Oregon for Hughes
Sacramento, C'al., Sept. 6. Governor
Hiram Johnson will not make a speak
ing tour of Oregon in behalf of Charles
i.. iltigbcs. While this decision was not
announced by the governor, the infor
mation came today from a reliable
source. It was pointed out that the
governor is in need of rest following
his hard campaign for the republican
nomination for the senatorship and
when this recuperative period is up he
will have to plunge into bis own cam
paign against George S. Patton, the
democratic candidate. The governor
has not yet replied to the Hughes cam
paign committee of Oregon which ex
tended him the invitation to stump
that state, but he will probably answer
that it will be impossible for him to
make the tour.
