Great International Congress of Earth’s Sovereign Fools, among whom are four Queens. The entire

certainty that each and every member of the Congress will make a consummate fool of himself, herself,

DISPLAY No. I. 

An absolute revelation in the line of grand spectacular entries. Magnificent introductory parade in two 
mammoth and superbly splendid sections, actually filling the vast areas of the racing track and the 
equestrian rings with positively the finest, richest and costliest display of circus a,nd hippodromatic 
features ever seen. A truly bewildering scene of picturesque costumes, male and female race riders, 
Roman charioteers, animals in leash and in harness, elephants with howdahs, camels with saddles, and 
other novelties. The second section affording a truthful and historically correct reflex, limited only by 
the capacity of the enclosure, of the royal ovation tendered Columbus upon his return from the most 
wonderful voyage of discovery. Everything in and about this really meritorious pageant has been 
arranged and perfected only after consultation with the best authorities, and is now presented with 
the positive assurance that it is a great triumph in the line of correct costuming, 15th century equine 
trappings, historical devices and accoutrements, and other concomitants, even the music having been 
selected with a view to its appropriateness. Produced under the direction of RICHARD BARKER.
