which will exhibit In Scranton on Fri
day, May 23,
In the circus ring Is one placo where
a woman hus an equal chance with
her male companion, As a rule sho
draws a higher salary receives, the
greater appluuse and more commenda
tions from tho management, than does
the male performer. Notwithstanding
their high salaries and the scarcity of
performers worthy of being featured
with a show of the magnitude
of the Great Wallace Show, probably
more lady performers can be teen with
that show than any other six shows.
