CIRCUS SIGHTS.












JUGGLING ON HORSEBACK
While swiftly round the ring he dashes,
On bare-backed steed Miss Flora stands,
And in the air a dozen balls,
Keeps tossing with her dex'trous hands;
Then rods and plates are to her passed,
And with wondrous skill she spins
The plates upon the upheld rods,
Till wild applause her deftness wins.


THE FLYING TI-APEZE.
On bars that hang at dizzy height
Two skilled performers swing,
And fearlessly one doth himself
Toward the other fling:
In ttl:-p suspense we hold our breath,
And hands in fear we clasp
F-F.,i a brief moment, till we see
Hi n safe within the other's grasp.


THE TRAINED DOGS.
Ah, these are the actors that please little folks,
With their tricks and their capers, their gambols
and jokes!
Just see Captain Hector, how haughty his air !
While Nero, who's next him, looks cross as a bear;
Carlo and Major, and Ponto and Fan,
Are tumbling as only star acrobats can;
Punch looks gravely on, wiile Dash, the cute chap,
Plays the part of old lady in glasses and cap.

MANEGE ACT BY LADY RIDER,

THE KNIFE THROWEh.
This seems indeed a perilous feat,
In fear we watch each flashing blade;
.But with aim so certain all
are thrown.
If Nonu striike- or1 hurlt the

MANEGE ACT.
This elegant horse is so perfect in training
That every touch of the rein he obeys;
While his rider, Miss Flora, by all is admired
For her wonderful skill and the grace she displays.

a THE JAPANESE.
For feats that please, no others can
Surpass these artists from Japan.
Just see this clever, skilful pair!
One balanced high aloft in air
Upon a ladder's slender round,
The ladder on no firmer ground
Than his companion's shoulder stout.
Two others in a warlike bout,
Called an Assault-at-Arms, engage;
Each screens his face in wire-work cage,
And stuns our ears with noise and rattle,
As staff strikes staff in lively battle.

LEAPING THROUGH PAPER HOOPS,
In gauzy, spangled garb attired,
This pretty rider charms all eyes,
As on her steed, in graceful pose,
She stands while swiftly round he flies.
When paper-covered hoops are held,
Extended o'er her horse's track,
With buoyant leap she passes through
And lights in safety on his back.

THE GOAT RACE.
Hurrah! Hurrah! now clear the track! Mounted on goats four monkeys ride,
What a dashing cavalcade In jockey caps and coats;
Is this that sweeps now into view, 'Tis hard to say which funnier are,
Like warriors on a raid. The riders or the goats.


THE BUFFALO HUNT.
Of the Wild Life of the West While after him the hunters,
A picture here we see: Armed with rifle and with spear,
By an Indian band the buffalo's chased Theirgalloping steeds urge fiercely on
And swiftly made to flee; In wild unchecked career.
Around the ring he rushes Although they are but shamming,
With lowered, shaggy head, For a time they make us feel
Seeming the earth almost to shake That the hunt is quite in earnest,
With his heavy thundering tread; All seems so true and real.

REVOLVING GLOBE ACT AND HAT TRICKS BY CLOWNS.

THE CLOWN'S HAT TRICK.
Hats tossed by one, another catches
On his head.without a slip.
Two more keep hats revolving swiftly,
As with light rods the rims they whip.



EMPLOYES' WHEELBARROW RACE.
More of push than of style, more of vim thai of grace,
Is there in that queer contest, the Wheelbarrow Race:
Very funny indeed do these runners appear,
Each striving his best not to drop in the rear;
There are prizes for all except him who comes last,
And for racers so hampered they go pretty fast,
Though sometimes it happens-one stumbles and falls,
And his barrow shoots from him as downward he sprawls'


ROMAN STANDING RACE.
Two bare-backed steeds each rider guides,
Onei foot lon either'ss buck :
M :,t tlrilliij, i- the -iglit they mni ke,
Fla-hinu lik: 'n-t-or r unrid the track.
