NEW ORLEANS
MUSEUM

The Largest Traveling MUSEUM in the United States,
Where Ladies and Children can come without an escort and see something of an interesting and scientific nature.

The Manager desires to call particular
attention to a few of the many Wonders
that they have on Exhibition.       

A LIVING MERMAID
No Wax or Mechanical Figure.
But a Living, Breathing Being, HALF FISH and HALF WOMAN that Talks, Whistles and Sings ; an optical Illusion where Science, Art and Nature are skillfully blended.
DON'T FAIL TO SEE IT!

MISS ANNETTA,
THE CELEBRATED HINDOO SNAKE CHARMER
Will perform with some of the Largest living Boa-constrictors that have been placed on Exhibition. A sight of a Lifetime.

The Living Human Problem
The Mystifying Vanishing Lady !
This is the eclipse of all other Illusions, and created the wildest excitement at the Royal Aquarium in London, where it was first exhibited.

THE DEMON CHILD!
Of all the Wonderful Freaks of Nature that has ever came in the World, this DEVIL CHILD is certainly the greatest. It was born in Cleveland, Ohio. It has no resemblance whatever to humanity, but is in every respect what we would call an Infantile Devil. It has Horns, Hoofs for Feet, Tusks for Teeth, Claws for Hands, and a Tail about two feet long.

MR. and MRS. PAT ROONEY
The celebrated Chimpanzees, the most comical pair of Educated Monkeys in the country.

THE MAMMASETTS,
The two smallest Monkeys in existence.

The Great African Man Eater !
Without a doubt, one of the largest Gorillas in Captivity—A Monster

The Great Anaconda from South America

Splendid collection of Pictures showing Scenes in the Spanish Bull Ring. This Collection is rare and of a very entertaining nature.

A collection of Japanese Pictures, Works of Art, Etc., showing manners and customs in the Oriental Country. Something very instructive.

These are but a few of the many Curios that are on Exhibition—They are too numerous to mention, so do not fail to pay a visit to the Largest Museum traveling.
Doors Open from 9 A. M. to 10 P. M.

THE ENTERTAINMENT GOING ON CONTINUALLY.

Dr. W. BISHOP,
In his Lecture given every half hour, gives a complete and interesting history of all these curiosities.
