Eighty-five double length railroad
cars are required to transport the
Barnum & Bailey circus- They are
operated In four train sections and
the Southern Pacific railroad gives
assurance that it will have them all

section, known in the language of
the circus ns “the flying squadron,"
was scheduled to leave Doming, N.

tents yesterday, before midnight. The
dining tents which it convoys will in-

semi-annual re-union of the El Paso
bodies of the Ancient Accepted Scot-
tish Rite of Freemasonry la In th*
hands of the printer and copies of It
for distribution will be ready one day
next week. The rs-unlon will take
place during Jubilee week, begntnntng
Oct. il and ending Oct 25. A much
larger attendance of Scottish Rite Ma-
sons is looked for than at the spring
re-union held last April.
During the re-unlon the beautiful
degrees of the Scottish Rite from the
4th to the 22d will be conferred In
full form, according to the ritual of
the supreme council of the southern
jurisdiction of the United States, to
which council the bodies of the val-
ley of El Paso yield allegiance. El
Paso consistory No. 3 and co-ordinate
bodies are among the few In the Juris-
diction which confer each and every
degree without abridgement by teams
costumed according to the regulations
of the order. A higher grade of ex-
cellence In the presentation of the
Scottish Rite work has been develop-
ed by the officers of the local bodies
than Is found In many older and larger
organizations of the rite elsewhere.
