i BIG CROWD AT CIRCUS Fifteen Thousand People Visit- Ed Colfax on Friday. No Serious Accidents Occurred »nd the Crowds Stood in the Blis tering Sun for Hours. The largest crowd that ever invaded Colfax, visited Uingling Brothers' circus last Friday. Before the sun was up trams could be seen coming down the different roads leading into town. Every train brouebt hundreds of people, some from a distance of 50 and 60 miles. Various estimates have be^n made of the number of people who witnessi-d the parade and naw the big show at the fair grounds. It is not an ovnrestimatinn to place the number at 15,000 people Alf.

IIJOMEN ScULPTORO Ihe Famous Ones of A America |J WHEN Caroline Shaw began modeling in butter some thirty-five years ago on a .Missouri farm there ras scarcely a woman sculptor in America. '-Sleeping lolanthe," exhib- Ited at the Centennial exposition in Philadelphia, was much admired. A. little later Vinnie Ream Hoxie made iii.hl.Ms of warriors and generals on horseback, heroic size. A little later yet girls began to learn carpenter work and carve furniture, also portrait heads in wood, at first in Cincinnati, then In other cities, and finally even to use hammer and chisel on stone. Mankind then discovered woman to be no longer the fragile porcelain creature that would break if you looked at her. The discovery did woman herself a world of good. There is now no transeendently great sculptor in the world; therefore we would not expect to find any in the United States, particularly among American women. There are, however, several Anierican women of respect able rank in this departmen...
