These truly wooderful animals
perform seemingly impossible
feats, and do them with the ease
and grace only assumed by hu
man performers. They have been
trained to walk a tight rope while
skilfully balancing an open um
brella on the tips of their noses.
They climb bidders while bal
ancing large rubber belle, tossing
them from one to the other with
the greatest skill. They ride
bareback on galloping hors as
while whirling brands of fire.
juggling rubber bells end other
articles. The performance of
theee remarkable sea animals is
truly a sensation, and the rase
and quickness with which they
obey every command of their
trainer, leaves little doubt but
what they enjoy giving the per
formanee fully as much aa the
audieoce enjoy seeing It. Some
idea of the expense incurred in
presenting this act to the public
can be obtained from the state
ment that these animals must be
fed on live fish, which must nec
essarily be of the salt water va
riety— hence must come shipped
ahve from either the Atlantic or
Pacific ocean. It costs from five
to ten dollars each per day to
board thaae animals, varying ac
cording to the show's distance
from either ocean.
