The Peak Family are now on their fifteenth annual tour, and seem to have tall times among the prairies out West. They finished up a good week’s business at Quincy, Ill., on the 30th July, and made Mons. Jean Alfred Fays, their solo violinist, a present of a splendid diamond ring as a token of their esteem. They were at Peoria on the 4th and 5th, Bloomington 6th and 8th, Atlanta 9th, and Elkhart 10th. They next visit Springfield, Ill., 11th and 12th, and Decatur 12th, and will pack up for a tour in Texas, commencing about the 1st Sept.
