Lemen Bros' Circus
Ritzville's initial circus was anything but desirable to her people.
Monday afternoon Lemen Bros.' circus showed in Ritzville, and a scene was presented never before witnessed in our busy little city, as it was the first circus of any consequence to exhibit here. At an early hour people from the outlying country districts began to pour into the city and by 10:30 o'clock the streets presented a metropolitan appearance. At that hour the parade took place, but did not come up to anything like the usual circus parade.
