SIGNOR BONNO CARRE,
THE FIRE FIEND.
HAVING just returned from a grand tour of South Americal, where we made an unqualified hit, we beg to introduce this act for an Open-air Attraction. It is one of the most thrilling ever brought before the public. We have a large iron cage, covered with tow and saturated with oil, &c., which we set on fire, making a heat so intense that it is impossible to come within forty feet of it. Into this mass of flame the Great Bonno Carre walks and does a thrilling and entertaining act, lasting from fifteen to twenty minutes. We can place the cage in front of the grand stand, or any place you may designate. This performance has never yet failed to draw crowds whenever properly advertized, and gives immense satisfaction. We will furnish you press notices and interviews, so you can boom the act in your local papers. We have played to from 20,000 to 30,000 people daily in the bull rings of Rio Janeiro, Buenos Ayres, &c. We will furnish everything complete for the act.
I conside Bonno Carre, the Fire Fiend, the most thrilling open-air act I ever saw.
