Real Circus comming to Town: It will not be long now unti the sweating dappled horses will drag the rumbling vans loaded with heavy circus paraphernalia from the D.M.& V. Railroad yards to the lot of exhibition at Queen Annes Ball Park. The Downie and Wheeler Shows will make the place hum and Lewes will be filled with eager and good natured people who want to see a spanking good parade and show that will chill their blood by daring feats one moment, convulse them with laughter at an army of clowns the next and fill them with wonder the next. This they will get. According to the newspapers at other places where Downie & Wheeler Shows have been are filled with glowing accounts of the superb performance given in the monster "Big Top". They say the show is as advertised and better. The show will be here Friday, September 12th.
