RHODA ROYAL IS READY
FOR BIRMINGHAM DATE
Well-Known CircusMan Visits Southern City-and Prepares
for Big Season
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 25.-Rhoda
Royal, managing director of the Rhoda
Royal Two Ring Circus Hippodromeand
Wild West, was in Birmingham today
conferring with M. D. Stradford, chair-
man of the circus committee of the
Shrine Temple, under whose auspices
Mr. Royal will exhibit here this win-
ter. The arrangements are well under
way and Mr. Stradford and his com-
mittees are hard at work. After in-
specting the arena in the South Side
Riding Academy, where the circus will
be given, Mr. Royal stated that the
building was well adapted for his pur-
pose, although some slight alterations
will be made in the seating arrange-
ments in order to provide for a greater
capacity.
The Royal circus this season prom-
ises tobemuch largerthan last season
and for the first time this fall the cir-
cus king announced a number of his
feature acts. The Seigrist family of
aerialists, introducing Charley Seigrist,
whose peer never stepped into a saw-
dust arena, will divide honors with the
Tybell-Julian sisters, known from  one
end of the world to the other. Among
the bareback riders Mr. Royal has en-
gaged for the winter are the famous
Rooneys, the Duttons, Charlie Rooney
and Ab Johnson. The Nelson family of
acrobats, fifteen in number, will be
featured, as will Paul Brachard, John
Agee, "prince of all rough riders," Chad
Wertz, "champion   double somersault
leaper of the world;" Captain Walter
C. Sharpe and his troop of sixteen ex-
United States cavalrymen; the Maynard
sisters in a novel wire act, the Sylvan
sisters In a new contortion presenta-
tion, and many other high class artists.
The famed Royal high school horses
will be seen, and among the riders en-
gaged to show them are John and Nel-
lie Carroll, Austin King, Miss Carrie
Noremburg, Miss Ida Miaco, -Miss May
King, Miss Violet Agee, Miss Tillite
Bartik and George Brown.
A new creation in equine presenta-
tion will be Mr. Royal's musical horses,
directed by Miss CarrIe Noremburg.
This act has just been perfected and will
be presented to the public for the first
time at the opening performance in
Memphis in November.
The Bartik troupe of Russian dancers,
twelve in number, will be with the show,
and the clown contingent, twenty in all,
will be headed by Dick Ford, Phil Dar-
ling, George Clayton, Billie Jameson
and George Worth.
The Birmingham engagement of the
Rhoda Royal Shows should be a record-
breaker. General Representative H. S.
Maddy was here in conference with Mr.
Royal and completed arrangements for
the local billing. The Royal show has
a full line of special lithographs and
a handsome advance herald.
Has Kennedy Signed Up?
MEXICO, Mo., Oct. 28.-Rumor has it
that General Manager C. T. Kennedy
of the Great Parker Shows, has closed
a contract for 1910 with J. A. Darnaby
of this city, stipulating a salary and
percentage not to fall below $5,000 a
year.
Mr. Darnaby is well known to every
manager of note in the west. He is the
author of three plays with music, "The
Fall Guy," "Beautiful Bagdad" and "A
White Elephant," the latter now being
in preparation.  "A White Elephant"
will be booked under the auspices of
Elks in the larger cities, Mr. and Mrs.
Darnabydirecting and stagingte play.
Anne Saunders (Mrs. Darnaby) will
direct the musical rehearsals and put
on the dancing numbers.
To Join Rhoda Royal.
The  Tybell-Julian sisters, whirling
teeth aerialists and tight wire artists,
will be with the Rhoda Royal Indoor
Circus this winter. These artists have
been identified with a number of the
larger circus organizations, and will un-
doubtedly prove a great feature with
the Royal siow.

Storm Strikes Circus in India
Excitement and Sc
PRINCETON, Ind., Oct. 23.-Many
persons are today recovering from In-
juries received when a large circus tent
of Norris & Rowes' circus was blown
over during a performance by a wind
storm last night and a thousand or
more persons were held prisoners for
a  time beneath the canvas.     Scores
were injured in the excitement which
followed, but today it is said nonewere
seriously injured.
The screams from the imprisoned
people could be heard for blocks away.
Knives were used and the frightened
people  reached  safety  by   crawling
through slits made in the rain-soaked
canvas. The lights were put out by
the wind so that no fire followed. One
of the property men, it is reported, was
struck on the head by a falling pole
and seriously injured.
During the excitement, two elephants
escaped from the menagerie, but after
a search they were discovered and re-
turned.
