The famons Ringhng Bros., whose World's Greatest Shows oome to Ann Arbor, torooirow, Satnrday, Ang. 27, have tbis year revolntiODized tbecirous busiuoss by inangurating a ínagnificent street spectacle, wbich is presented as a free offering to the publio on a soale of magnitude and grandeur suoh as no amusement management has ever before attempted. Instead of the conventional street parade with which uirousgoers are familiar, Ringiing Bros. have organizad an elaborare oarnival, consisting of tbirty huge seotions, each of whioh is representativo of some distinot national oharaoteristio or of some age or era in the bistory of the world. Among the most striking seotions is that devoted to India, repiesenting soenes uf warfare in the Punjaub, huge elephants harnessed to rumbling siege gnns, mounted military esoorts; darkhued Bast Indian ohiefs, brilliantly uniformed native millitary gnides, attendants and oommanding officers. Then there are correot representations of all the most famous crack military organizatious of the world, brilliantly utriformed, haudsomely mounted and with their burnished aoooutrements glittering in the suuligbt like burnished gold and silver. The reproduotion of the Derby day is a revelation to lovers of fine stock and swell-turnonts. The striking features of the famous English meet are represented by hundreds of leadine artista and rjerformers dressed in tbe lateet London modes, and givhig a most interesting aud imposing representation of the heavy swelldom of Knglish society. Tbe immense tally-bos the spider rigs and dainty T-carts nsed in thissection alone represent a magnifioent expeuditure beyond the reaoh of any other show in the world, wbile even the gieat Derby day meet itself oonld not bring together sa magnifioent a display of blooded racing stock. Aa Egyptian Caravan, orbssing the Sahara, with its camels, dromedaries, wiry Arabian horses, Bedouins of the desert, Soudanese, Algerians and other strange people frorn Northern Afrioa, brings that land of mystio interest olose, to the spectator's visión. The special children's sections, with its pranoing ponies, children's tableanx, ohildren's hippodrome and minature cagea of rare wild beasts is a dulight to the yonnger element, while the glirnpses of imperial splendor given in tbe anoient Roman seotiou, and the nnmberless new, novel and startling features in the other seotiona, inoluding 10 bands of mnsio and over 100 tablean-oars, dens and open oages of rare wild beasts, all combine to make t.bis the most remarkable display of exhibitional wealth and magnifloeut originality the world bas ever seen.
