WILD BILL, OF KANSAS Killing Two Soldiers in Twinkling, but Hesitating ut a Monkey. "Wild Bill was a good shot, was he not?" "With the six shooter ho was simply wonderful. In my entertainment I give an illustration of a double shot lie made out at Hays City, Kan., in the early days, when he shot two soldiers, «'one in front of Mm and one directly behind him, each en­ deavoring to shoot him before he conld draw his gun. He killed one and mor­ tally wounded the other, and the two re­ ports of the revolver seemed almost as one. The marvelous feat was the talk of the country for a long time. In fact, •when I came by there a few days ago one of the old residents who witnessed the killing mentioned it to me and said he could scarcely believe it even after seeing it. Bill never missed his mark. I have seen him take a pistol in each hand and fire with right and left pistol at a can thrown in the air, hitting it with both bullets. By the way, I heard a very funny story told on Bill some time...

Barrett was looking after things himself Tuesday. He has a big show and the first class style of people that they are, is indicated by the handsome and expensive stands of lithographed bills with which they cover up the town and decorate every unprotected barn in the county. Great advertisers are the show people and few realize how much money it costs. The bill boards at Fargo blew down in Monday night's storm and they had to do the work all over again. Jtfr. Barrett says his circus and entire show is the running leader of this amuse­ ment line, and everything seems to war­ rant it, from the advance. Two rings are used in the circus—they are obliged to keep two sets of performers, going to keep up with the times and be in style—style effects' circus fo...

The friends of humanity, and especially those who labor for the advancement and freedom of the women of India, mourn the loss of Dr. Anandibai Joshee, the Hindoo woman who was graduated at the Woman's Medical college of Pennsylvania not quite two years ago. The life and trials of this re­ markable woman give us a proper estimate of the immense difficulties in the way of re­ form in India, and the narration is of interest in itself, as she was one of the original and progressive minds of the world.
