The Brady Guards showed up strong and gave evidence that in tho short timo thoy have been organized they have been well drilled. Following tho parade patriotic exercises were held at tho court house park, these including selections by the- two bands, and a male gleo cjub, the reading of tho declaration of independence by M. B. Crosby and an address by J. J. Halligan. Immediately aftor theso ex orcises tho cavalry troop gavo a very creditable drill on south Dewey street.
