Some of the Attractions for Our Street Fair [excerpt]

     President W. S. Jordan, of the Madison County Carnival Association, while in Valdosta last week closed a deal with the managers by which a number of up-to-date attractions were secured for the Street Fair to be held in this city on November 27th, 28th and 29th. These midway shows will surely be here and others are yet to be added to the list. Those already secured are as follows:

ELECTRIC THEATRES.
FERRIS WHEEL.
Kinetoscope, or moving pictures,
     showing the assassination,
     death and burial of President
     McKinley.
Oriental Theatres.
Hindoo Mystery.
Palace of Illusions.
Trained Wild Animals.
Merry-go-Round.
Merry Makers.
Dog Show (very fine).
Statue Turning to Life.
742 Pound Midget.
The Wonderful Galatea.

     Mr. E. W. Weaver, the owner and manager of the above attractions, was in Madison Tuesday and perfected final arrangements for the production of his exhibits here. His shows are now in Jacksonville where he will exhibit during the State Fair, coming here immediately thereafter. Mr. Weaver has secured the pictures of the execution of Czolgosz which will be shown here through the Kinetoscope. He left yesterday for Monticello.
