At length the spreafc circus has come and the boys who have been busy raising the needful cash since the first advance agent struck this place and set the bill -boards all aflame with the thrilling announce­ ments of things strange and marvel­ ous including the. baby elephant havo fit length gathered and dispos­ ed of the last scrap of old iron, rags and things salable and exchange­ able, and are on band 'to-day with beaming ahd expectant faecs that go far to make excuse for the great quantities of A r t, molasses, and other things sticky and not sticky thatspt every,, feature forth In bold relief, ?9qr oovtainfi many peo­ ple who are not cousins but wish they were, are all—yea, verily, every one of them in fi om the coun­ try and are m aking lots of sport for themsehiea and. other, people-, We wilLmeealy remark unde» thin head that; peanuts are very cheap and plenty, while gingerbread and cheese are on the decline. The circus itself came Sunday m o r n i n g b r i g h t and early o n th e Gr., I, & S, road from Sayre. There are three sections of the train, the cars being fifty feet in length, and con­ sisting of four sleeping coaches, three earn for the elephants, box cars for the other animals, and flatj cars for the wagons. The cats are all very neaitly painted And ornamented, and were made especially for Cooper ahd Baily. ^fter their arrival here the cars Were drawn upon side tracks, and foe unloaders, twenty-five m num her, proceeded to the work of get­ ting the cages- to the ground, and the horses out of the care. Every­ thing mqvqd.off like machine work, fflgVi man -dropping quickly into his place and working quietly and with the abeenco of tne usual amount of ^wearing that one looks for from such men. Hors© power is used both in loading ahd uploading, and Saves much time and straining on foe.-part-Ot foe employes.

To be s u re there w as c e rtain w o rk connected w ith th e show t h a t had to be d o n e a n d m a n y of the m en had to labor nearly all day, but for the m a jority there w as a welcome rest and quiet. HOW TH E DAY WAS SPENT. There was no m a terial difference in the m a n n e r in which these peo­ ple spent their Sabbath and t h a t in which the common r u n of m a n k ind spend theirs. Show m en are hu­ m an a n d enjoy recreation and r e s t about as other people do. Some wandered or rode about the village in the afternoon, visited the gorge and U n iversity grounds, and ex­ pressed their appreciation o£ Vue splendid scenery; others smoked and lounged around the hotels, and in the evening attended c h u r c h ; and still o thers spent the tim e in sleep­ ing. This m o rning w ith the first peep of light the showmen were astir preparing for the work of the day. THE PAAT)Hi R was a very fine one and well paid : those who had come in1 a long dis­ tance from the c o u n try for the pur­ pose of seeing it. Besides the cam : els and elephants in line, there were some th ir ty cages of animals, as the reader no doubt is well aware, b rutes of all countries, but there were some things in the procession which will bear a word or two. ' There was a handsome Tally-ho coach which was built for General G r a n t’s use at Long Branch and which fell into Cooper & Bailey’s h a n d s; there waB also a Tally-ho which was built for the New York Transportation com­ pany and was run between the Brunswick Hotel a n d Pelham in op­ position to CoL Kane. This, though not a p p a rently very large, will hold a great m a n y people, and on one oc­ casion in Boston sixty newspaper men were on board, and it is said they cipsed up all the saloons in th a t eastern, tow n before morning. There m u st be some mis take, however, in .th a t statem ent, unless it was intended to convey the idea th a t by m o ral persuasion such a thing was accomplished, for reporters as d rule hardly—seldom ever drink, and therefore it could not m ean th a t the saloons under consideration were compelled to close because the beer r a n out., This coach cost the circus com p any $4,- 500. There was an electric-light rnaehiue, the callope, whichwas p re sided over by Mr. Thomas King, of A u stralia, a pleasant young man. He was born in South America and at the age oi five went w ith ffis peo­ ple, who are English, to Australia, where he was engaged by Cooper <5c B ailey wnile o n their trip around the world. There a r e connected, w ith ih4 show 160 horses and twenty-four ponies and these are all u n d e r the supervis­ ion of one m an, but require the a t ­ tention of forty-six men. The sta­ bles are of course beneath .canvas and are divided into a ring stock, trbelaUy-hu horecs and the tableau horses, the latter being used to draw the large tableau wagons in the p ro­ cession. G reat c are is taken in the purchase of these animals, none b u t the best being kept. Each setjof horses, i t will be seen, has a certain k i n d o f w o r k t o d o a n d w h e n t h a t is mushed they rest, so that the horees a r e n o t o v e r - w o r k e d , f i n f a c t t b e y seqpied to be enjoying themselves.

T o f h e E d i t o r o f th e J o u r n a l : S i r — The proposed boulevard from Uni­ versity street to ifowing having al­ ready been discussed, approved and sanctioned by universal public ap- preciatidn/the question is daily plfq. pounded when is it to be built, arid what movements are making tow­ ards that end? The answer is a t hand to all such inquiries. The business men of Ithaca want it, public con­ venience demands it; tne nghtof way is conceded by the property owners along the line; and It stands awaiting action. W ill those who appreciate or desire it confer togeth­ er a t once and devise and adopt a plan to put it in motion, either by getting a surveyor to run the line and locates the route, and go to work by employing labor, raising funds by subscription, or otherwise and patting it through. Or organize a stock company, capital $50,000 shares $ 1 0 0 each, erect a the suspen­ sion bridge across Fall Creek, i build the boulevard and establish a toll- gate; or will the public prefer to iold their hands, go to sleep and let this public improvement like others that could be named die out for want of action, remembering that with all such enterprises, push ac­ complishes much—labor excavates mnnnininfl ftnd tnnnnla seas kiilda, cities, and reclaims the wilderness, while idleness and inactivity, dwarfs progress, and turns fruitful fields to barren wastes, and the most pros­ perous cities die out from mildew and crumble to decay. Shall this be Ithaca’s fate? Let your action answer. . B oulevard . ITHACA GORGE. FEEDING THE MEN. The kitchen department is under t h e c a r e o f J . E .

[Elm'ra AdveriUer.] Ithaca Gor^e is increasing in pop­ ularity, and is destined to rapidly become a favorite place of resort. The Utica, Ithaca & Elm ira and Lehigh Yalley railw a y companies will soon realize this fact m ore fully than heretofore, and already begin to appreciate its w o rth as a great natural a ttraction on their routes of travel, and one well w o rthy of con­ sideration a n d a p .em inent place in their guide books, annual advertis­ ing posters and excursion pro­ grammes, like th a t accorded to W a tkins Glen in those of the N o rth­ ern Central, N. Y., Central, 8. G. & C. a n d Erie railways. THE SCENERY of this wonderful gorge is equal to the best in all the central section of the state. Fall Creek, the stream th a t flows through it, from east to west, is the largest in the Lake and Glea region of Central New York. Its falls are Humorous, remarkable i n t h e i r c o n f o r m a t i o n , a n d a l w a y s impressive in their power, which is an indispensable element of grand eur ard sublimity, that does not in the least detract from their heauty This stream has long been noted as presenting the largest number of imposingly beautiful w aterfalls to be found between the Hudson River and Niagara. The rock, forest and fo l i a g e fe a t u r e s o f th e sc e n e r y a r e in keeping w ith the faUs, and the gorge is replete thronghout with rom a n tic interest and sylvan charm s of a high order. The FU T U R E PROSPECTS of the Gorge, as a popular resort, are indeed cheering. The late Mies Jennie McGraw—now Mrs. Fiske— whose new palatial mansion is in P rocess of erection near the Cornel Tniversity grounds, has purchasec. all the lanfl Dordoring on the south b a n k o ' t h i s f a m o u s G o r g e , a n d a small arm y of men are engaged in transforming one of the finest natural localities, imaginable into an earthly paradise, in which the highest triumphs of genius and art and the peerless beauties of nature are to be harmoniously blended. The noble and attractive park will probably, under proper regulations. be open to the pubhc, and become an added attraction to the gorge and no doubt largely increase the num b er of its sum m er visitors. OTHER IMPROVEMENTS, As it in sym p a thy w ith the great change going on along the south bank, the s p irit of progress is also a t w o rk on th e n o rth side, aiorfe which runs t h e path, f o l l o w e d by -v is ito r s , until a t the upper end, n e a rly a mile east of the entrance, they are u sher­ ed into the U n iversity grounds and the prospective pane.

The entrance to the gorge, on the east side of the valley, is just about a milft from the central part of the Village, where the principal hotels are located—the Ithaca Hotel, Clin­ ton* H o u se and Tom pkins House— and after leaving visitors at the entrance, carriages, at any given hour, will meet them at the Univers­ ity grounds, provided they wish to return to foe village.
