Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 14, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta LKTHiRlbQt DAILY HtRALD, WEDNESDAY, JULY 14, IfM. .PICTURES threg French servants, and an English has for the time ap- parently shaken off the Mile. Sophie de Groehe, in whose favor Sophy Grouch- has effected an This' haruileai If somewhat absurd transformation was carried out with a futile elaboration smacking of Lady Meg's sardonic perversity rather than of Sophy's directer methods. Sophy would probably have defined the right to call benelf what she pleased wd left the world to account for her name In. any way it pleased. Lady Meg must needs fit her up with a story. She wan the daughter of a Creole gentleman married to an English wife. Her motif er being early left a widow, Sophy had brougfit up entirely England; hence her indifferent acquaintance with French. If this excnse served a purpose at first, at any rate it soon be- came unnecessary. Sophy's marked talent for languages (she subsequently mastered Kravonlan, a very difficult dialect; in the space of a few months) made French a second native tongas to her within a year. The times irere stirring, a prate is to the great storm which soon to, follow. Paris waa fnii of men who In the next few were to make er lose fame, to rise with a bound or fall with a crash.

Beit Cigars nnd Tobacaoe in stock Shop ift of OHrtr Block In spite of the threatening weather last evening the C. W. Parker shows opened and good natured crowds, and laughter, music and the discordant voices of the genteel spiel- ers floated on the air until the hour of twelve had tolled. The carnival spirit was infectious and refused to be suppressed by the chilly damp air. The-Parker shows are bigger, bet- ter and cleaner than, those of any other carnival company that ever vi- sited Letbbridge and the people are to be congratulated on having such a high class company honor us with a five-duy visit, every attraction is worth while and there being no ob- jectionable features one can be sure to get his or her money's worth no matter where it is" spent. The Parker management this year is featuring the trained wild animals circus of Al Gr. Barnes, the veteran animal master, than whom none is better or more favorably known. His collection of wild and domestic ani- mals, is exceptionally large and com- plete, including many lioss, leopards, tigers, pumas, bears, ele- phants, camels, monkeys, goats, dogs ponies, a boxing "kangaroo and sea lions. One of the latter is unique in that it is .the only one of its species that has been educated to juggle ob- jects while retaining its seat on the back of a galloping pony. The ani- mal circus is a really meritorious per iornrance and should be missed by ao one who cares for this forni of enter- tainment. The Barnes menagerie of wild ani- mals is notable in. one respect, that is the excellent condition in which the animals are kept. They are all well feel, comfortable looking beasts, and their comfort is looked after to a surprising extent. Mr, .Barnes has in his collection more young lions, tigers, bears, jaguars, pumas and other wild animals than any other menagerie in the country. The work of Mme. Millie Barnes with the big forest-bred lion Nero; Mile. Florine and the Persian leo- Xubian lions pleases and thrills all who witness the performance, while the stunt of Edwin Kelly, when he enters the cage of the man-eating lion Caesar Wallace, is so thrilling and sensational that many quail be: fore the remarkable exhibition, and a sigii of genuine relief invariably sweeps over the audience following the young man's escape from the den in safety. It is doubtful if this city has ever been visited by a company that of- fered a higher class or a better bal- anced vaudeville programme than the Broadway Belles, and if the general expressions from those visiting the attraction may be accepted as a cri- terion, it is a certainty that capacity business will rule during the engage- ment here. The program is teeming with vaudevillg novelties, singing end dancing being the predominating fea- tures, and both of these are unusual- ly artistic and pleasing. The ,vocal chorus and ensemble num- bers would do credit to ;i sho.v in some of the more pretentious thea- j trea in the larger "theatres. The per- formance is one well calculated to ap- peal to those who ure i-nrual to the better grades of amusement. The animate, scenic, mechanical electric shows, of which there are i a number, all proved to be popular j ,ast evening and this was especially true of "Pharoah's Daughter" a spec tacular: "The woman, turned to stone and the statue turned to life." .In connection with this attraction a- number of ultra-refined aro presented by a corps of comely and daintily gowned women. The beau- tiful "poses plastique" deserve spe- cial mention, and the pictoral tsonff numbers added to the merits of a pro Madame Delmar PALMIST AND ASROLOQER VISITS LEHBRIDGE Your life, revealed by hand.

And what is true of the more pre- tentious attractions of the management is equally as true of the smaller, or secondary attractions. 'Tho Outlaw" is a melodramatic pro duction of bandit-life, and will un- doubtedly please those who seek am- usement, merely.. At "The Alps'' production the spectator is transport ed to the very of the 'beautiful country and enabled to obtain, some conception of the natural beau- .ies that abound in Switzerland. The several other attract ons, are all away beyond the expectations of the beholder, and each is representative of something now, novel and modern ui its individual sphere. One of the real laugh makers of the :arnival is Monkey land, where the monkeys live, and it -is a real happy 'amily at that, as every known Und of the monkey family is represented there, apes and baboons from Cey- ,6n and Java, spider monkeys from India, monkeys from all parts of Af- rica, the real feature however is the "Baby Gorilla" only six months of. age and walks upright like a small boy and says his name is Little Ne-- mo, so be sure to see the monkeys. The riding devices and fun factor- ies are, for the most part, new to this section, and demonstrated their popularity the younger 'and more venturesome element along the pat-h of pleasure. The numerous free acts are out of the ord'inary, that of the Great Beno and the Two Latlips being imperially daring and sensa- tional. The free attractions are giv- en twice daily, aud eny o-ne of them is weir worth a trip to the show grounds to witness.
