BRING GIANT CIRCUS.
Ringling Bros, a d & Bailey
Arriving aboard 100 double-length
railroad cars forming trains more
than one and one-third miles long,
and made even greater than in 1922
j by the addition of many big, new for
eign acts, Ringling Brotners a~d
Barnum & Bailey Combined will ex
hibit at Raleigh, Friday, Noverber 2,
Those wno read tne daily papers
or who keep in touch with the movie
news reels need not be reminded of
the shipload of acts and animals re
cently imported by the Greatest Show
on Earth. The remarkable cargo in
cluded two companies ot baby ele
phants are now joined with the forty
! adults of the mammoth herd. There
were also 100 more performing hordes
acocmpamed by Europe’s greatest
trainer, and many wild animals, some
of which have been added to the
scores upon scores of trained jungle
beasts, while others have become part
of the mavelous menagerie.
More than a million persons saw the
mammoth new circus of 1923 during
the weeks that it exhibited in Madi
son Square Garden, New York. Now
this marvelous exhibition is touring
the country aboard five great trains.
It is a third bigger tnan tne Ringling
Brothers and Barnum & Bailey show
of last season. It is ten times larger
than any other circus now on tour.
Big as is this wonder circus of 1293
—with its more than thirty trained
wild animal displays in steel arenas,
fully 200 wonderfully schooled horses,
700 men and women performers, 100
clowns, and scores of features —the
price of admission is no more than
before. And though the trained ani
mal numbers and the immense horse
show were circuses in themselves
while touring Europe, they are not
offered as separate attractions by the
Ringling Brothers and Barnum &
Bailey Combined Shows. Instead all
are on one gigantic program. Every
thing is in one mammoth main tent.
One ticket admits to all these and to
the tremendous double menagerie.
There are more than a thousand ani
mals in the zoo of this circus and these
include entire families of hippopota
mi and giraffes. Another remarkable
zoological feature is an armored rhi
noceros, the only one known to exist
and alone worth $50,000.
ABOUT THE SCHOOL TRUCK
Editor Chatham Record —Please al
low enough space in your valued pa
per to give room lor this article to
inform the writer of the Corinth news
correctly with reference to the Brick
-1 have.i school, of which he made point
! eu leierence (in the Record of Octo
i her 4th, issue) when he made mention
of the petition which he claims killed
! the chance ot a school truck running
ironi our community to Moncure.
Let it be clearly understood that
there was no objection to the truck
from Brickhaven, that I ever head of,
but we do object to taking our grades
from the school which we have just
gotten up and going, there is no rea
son in having to go to Moncure with
little childien to get the same grade
that they are entitled to get at home.
We are proud that there are people
in our district that will stand by that
which is right, and desire the taxes
we pay for our school to be used in
said district for the maintenance of
the grades up to the limitation of re- i
The high school students who are
ready for high school work, from
Brickhaven, are going to Moncure,
and are doing so at less cost than it
would cost to operate a truck.
Each person who signed our peti
tion did so of their own accord, and
no one can, to my mind, justly say
that any were misled to do so. On the
other hand Mr. Thompson, our super
intendent, made an appeal for the
truck to run one night w T hen he was at
Brickhaven and he also told us that if
we didn’t want the truck we could car
ry a petition before the board of edu
cation on the following Monday and
that body might reverse their decision.
We did so and I want to say that I
believe this is the sentiment of all
who signed it; that they are proud of
it, for all had fair notice regarding
the petition, arid I am safe in saying,
with no insinuations to any, that as
good and intelligent people did sign
it as there is in Chatham county. No
one wants to prevent any children of
lack of opportunity for securing an
education; however, we do think when
we pay local tax we should get the
benefit of some at home when possi
The move that the Brickhaven peo
ple made just proves that we had ra- J

THE HORTON SCHOOL.
r Name Given the Pittsboro Negro Pub
i With the approval of the school
i committee the negro public school of
, this district will be hereafter known
! as the George M. Horton School. This
. name has been chosen in memory of
I “The Slave Poet of North Carolina”
by that name who was bom and rear
ed in this community in 1798. He was
! the slave of James Horton, or Hough
| ton, and developed his wonderful ge
' nius as a poet while employed at the
University of North Carolina. He was
one of the most remarkable charac
ters, in many respects, this county has
produced. Prof. Collier Cobb, of the
University of North Carolina, in his
, sketch of Horton thus summarizes
“A slave who owned his master;
| a poet ignorant of the rules of pros
| ody; a man of letters before he had
learned to read; a writer of short sto
ries who published in several papers
| simultaneously before the day of
newspaper syndicates; an author who
supported himself in an intellectual
center before authorship had attain
ed to the dignity of a profession in
America; such was George Horton, a
negro born in North Carolina in 1798.”
| Horton was a full-blooded black
man. His lines are in beautiful metre
many of his poems are lofty, in sen
timent, and all of them pleasing.
Charles N. Hunter, principal of the
school, while doing research work in
The Boston Public Library during the
summer of 1920, found a volume of
Horton’s poems with a sketch of his
life. He made many copies and Hor
ton became the subject of one of his
lectures which he had delivered in
different sections during recent years.
I The school opened last Monday with
an enrollment of 102 pupils. The
building is not yet complete. When
finished it will be dedicated with fit
Principal Hunter and his assistants
hope to make this session of the
school a profitable one both for the
pupils and the community.
