Xot Only Will This Show Continue the Csc of the Ilijr Parade Feature, hut Fitch Year Will Strive To Im prove It. All the really big circuses of this country can be counted upon the fin gers of one hand, and all but one of them are now in a combine known as the circus trust, and has for Its primary object the suppression of all legitimate competition and the curtailing of expenses by doing away with parade and other features that ave become so established that the circus would indeed seem sadly lack- ng without them. The only firsi-class circus -that did not enter the combine this year is the John Robinson shows, and the management states that they wi'l positively not be led by -this asaocia- Ion of trust builders. They will not only continue the use of the parade a feature, hut will see that, each ear adds some new and attractive ovelty for the approbation of its ost of patrons and admirers. Their action is thus standing out alone against the combine ought to win them many friends, and It Is safe to predict that their appearance here on ugust 16 will be greeted with capa city business at both the afternoon and night performances.

The NIioh- Ik Niinipliioiily Htngcil. I'oHtuuieH Are Bli h 11 ml In Nplen- llil TaMe A Big llll. "The finest how Field ever put out." That .was the verdict of the audience which packed tho three floors of the Grand, Monday night, for the Field premier of the season. As In 11 Drat performances, (there was a Httlo drag occasslotiftlly, and there ore some rough spots which will be ironed out as the season progresses, but, as a whole, the show Is far ahead of anything Field has heretofore given, and It Is bound to take." 1 The first part tha entire show for that matterIs sumptuously staged. Nothing finer has been een here. The Mage setting Is thing of beauty, nd the costume rich and In nplen- dld itaste. Field' hart broken away front the hoi colors and gone In for cool. From Interlocutor Carnes In gold and while to the orchestra In pale green, .while and gold, the cos tumes are superb. The Tocalltfts wore nlnk and light blue, wnd the dozen "end" men appeared in green lined with' while. The vocal numbers are excellent, soloists and choruses alike being all that could be desired. Bright par ticular gems In the program are the "Sweet Kathleen" of Walter Sher wood. "I'd .Live or I Would Die ror You" by fieorge T. Martin, the vari ous opera.Me selections, and the most artistic bit of all, the "My Rosary" of John C. Dickens. The afterpart ls,a decided depart ure from the ordinary olio, tending a the mcen!c. Field simply has scenic and tranformailon errects ,-o burn, many of hem novel, and all of them good. The hit of th afterpart easily the musical number put on .by the "Five Musical Marines." Al. O. Field, though a prince 01 eood Mlows to meet "on 'tha out side," lets 4he audience see a little too much of him as the "filler In" between the first part and the olio. People sometimes tire of even a good thing. Some friend should advise him to eliminate about ten minutes of himself from the program. As an owner and director, he's a star, but he's a very ordinary ialn-strel. Following the performance, the local Shriner's club, which attendeJ the performance as a body, entertain-1 ed Field at a luncheon at the Commercial club. Out In Springfield.
