A BIG EVENT
Annual Event Best Ever Given, Bryan
Float Gets Big Reception.
The big crowd from this city which
attended the Ak-Sar-Ben yesterday and
last night had a big time and arrived
home this morning shortly after mid
night. The parade last night was a
fine one, the floats being artistic and
attractive, and decidely in keeping with
with the title float "The Golden West."
The prettiest float of all was that rep
resenting Iowa according to the gener
al opinion of those present although all
were handsome. The general idea of
the floats was to represent the boundless
sources of the west with the teeming
granaries, the yellow fields of corn and
wheat, the wonderful productiveness of
the orchards, the grapes of the vine
yards, the cattle of the plains states,
the sheep of the mountain states, and
the mineral resources of the mining
states while several had great forests
of virgin pine and hardwoods. It was a
magnificent summing up of the resour
ces of the treasure box of the nation.
"Samson In Polyix" was a set of
humorous floats representing various
items of current interest in the political
world and in general news. The Big
Stick, the Stork, The Steam Roller, the
League of American Municipalities and
the several candidates for the presi
dency all figured in this set. One fea
ture of this was the difference in the
reception accorded the float represent
ing "William H" and that representing
William J." The latter was cheered
to the echo by the monster croweds
that thronged the streets while the for
mer made it's way virtually in silence
save here and there an occasional cheer
and a hand clap. It was impressive of
the feelings of the people on the presi
dential race and inspires one with an
almost certainty that Bryan will carry

Lena Boom the lady and Clarence
Krecklow, the baby. The show v:;n
well patronized during the week and a

Manley vs. Springfield.
"Speers Bunch" went to Springfield
last Friday and gave the Springf.eld
boys a nice race for their money re:-idling
in a score of 11 to Jo, eleven innirs
being played to prove their victory. A
very close game was played the score
being tied twice in the game and was
nip and tuck. It was anybody's game
from start to finish. The strong wind
and dust was responsible for the bi;r
score. The "Bunch" was well treated
by the Springfield boys and will rel;:ni
again next Saturday to see who wear s
the belt for the season.
