Who possibly could have resisted this flyer, reproduced exactly as it was written?

"Some of the most astounding Wild West Features ever seen in the state will be exhibited to the public. They will consist of saddle riding, bareback riding, steer riding, etc. These horses are the wildest and most untamable that ever grew hair. If you don't believe it come and seem [sic] them – Cow Boy Running Race, Keg Roping, Potato Race on Horse Back – Big Bowery Dance at Night – Admission 50c ... Fred Dreyer, Manager"
