Special card from the Manager of Publications.

The agents of the great show being fully aware of the great interest entertained by the people of the West for Dan Rice, and at the same time cognizant of the fact that they want but to be assured that DAN WILL APPEAR,

In order to ensure a triumphal reception for him, they avail themselves of the only vehicle for imparting the news, and announce PROUDLY AND PUBLICLY, that on the date above mentioned he will forthcoming—with his SPLENDID RETINUE OF BLOODED HORSES & EDUCATED ANIMALS

AND A COMPANY OF ARTISTES Of superior merit and well earned reputation. The Agents knowing, at the same time, that in this locality quite a number of Exhibitions of various grades and character are advertised, and that fertile fancies have given birth to the most extravagant promises, whilst a spirit of gasconade, would QUIETLY REMARK THAT

The Great Show Posses 7 features which can be seen in no other exhibition in the world. 1st. the only Elephant which can, does, and will walk a tight rope.

2d. the largest Rhinoceros ever captured. The only one in America, and the first and only one in the world ever tamed. He will be let loose in the Ring.

3d. the only pair of Camin Mules.

4th. The only Waltzing Camel.

5th. The only Talking Horse—the original “one” horse circus “Excelsior,” the beautiful dappled Grey Eagle, whose intelligence so impressed them who saw him in New York, that he was styled THE ANIMAL WITH A SOUL.

5th. The only Female Horse Tamer. Mrs. Libbin Showles, who will introduce the Wild Mexican Mustang. EUREKA.

7th. And the only really entertaining man, who wears the motley, DAN RICE, the CONVERSATIONALIST & HUMORIST

we also claim to be a complete formation, not a troupe divided into fractions, with one set of Performers, with two sets of Names, but a union of NOVELTY, ORIGINALITY AND ATTRACTION:

the combined elements of which constitute THE GREAT SHOW!
