There arc circuses and circuses, but
there is only one Barnum & Bailey's.
It has been self-styled "the grciuest
show on earth," and this year more
than ever, it- is confidently asserted,
lives up to and beyond its trade mark
d title more generously than ever be
fore. Today the circus is exhibiting in
l'ortland and long before tho breakfast
hour tomorrow the first of the four long
trains is due to arrive. There will be
but 'lew sleepy heads among the young
liters. Kids that ordinarily kick upon
getting up at a reasonable hour to do
the morning chores will sleep with one
eye open tonight and be on hand at the
railroad yards early in the morning.
The first thing on the circus day sche
dule will be the parade at 10 o'clock
in the morning, and it is promised to be
a "whopper." As a banisher of mel
ancholia the circus people say it will
be superior to any liver pill.

new this spring and there will be new
features. Almost everything of any
standing in the zoological line will be
seen, either openly displayed or care
fully concealed in gilded cages. Over a
score of elephants will plod along, and
there will be six bands of music in the
two-mile long pageant of glittering
But it is under the "big top" at 2
and 8 o'clock p. m. that this thousand
rided miracle of the amusement world
promises to make all sit up and take no
lice, for this circus goes on improving
ach year and burning up all the laud
atory adjectives, until all the superla
tives are exhausted. This season the
circus is nlmost entirely new and com
mences with a gorgeous pageant descrip
tive of the l'ersinn pageants of the
Thousand and One Niuhts, enlisting the
services of over 1,000 people, and a
wealth of colorful wardrobe ami trap
Following the glittering pageant will
come the Tapid and diverting succession
j of arenic acts given in three rings, four
jstage8 and the huge track. The ele
phants come first the musical ele
phants who play brass intrumcnts and
have a whole bagful of new tricks.

Normandy, with the roses gone from her
cheeks, subbed out the story of her

and brothers went to the front as sol

peasant women to take men's places.

are stronger and used to hnrd work.

know he was an Apache. I married him.
Then he took me to New York.
"In America everything was utrartge.
Husson told me to go out into the
streets and find men and to bring the
money to him. When I protested he
beat me. The first night I walked the
streets crying. I did not approach any
men. Husson woulil not give me any
thing to eat that night. He sent me out
ngnin the next day. For six dnys and
nights I stnrveil on half a loaf of
bread a day. Then 1 became so hungry
that I sinned to live.
."Husson brought me to San Francis
co. He starved me ngain when I re
belled against going on the streets.
"Don't let them find out hack in
France what I have come to for my
old mother woulil dio from the shame
of it. Just let me go now after this
trial is over. I want to hide my shume
