pleasant nnd tho public took advantage
of the woallior nnd camo out in largo
numbers. This was tho day of the
llower parade aad of courso this attrac
tion took many to the grounds to wit
ness the bounty of this attraction.
This was an entirely now idea for our
city and ns tho dilTurout arrayed rigs
wero drawn up in lino it was truly a
hard matter to say which was entitled
to tho moit eommendatien and tho dif
lerent prizes The judges wero J is
John S. Marsh and I. W. Crary of
Guide Rock and Mm. Saunders of Den
ver. Under I heir Utile of beauty,
tasto and other qiinlillcations which go
to matte up a tltov parade the follow
ing ptrnniis reeeived recognition:
Mary D.unerall, first.
Mrs. J. L Minur, second.
Mrs. M M. Stern and Mrs. J. O.
Mrs. D.J. Myers anil Mrs. W. W.
Mrs. A. Coitovcr and Mrs. John
Phil Sherwood and Miss Graco Grlec,
Mrs. V B. Fulton and Mrs. H. W.
This was tho designation of tho
judpes as to tho prizj winners and of
course it will havo to stand. As on all
occasions of this kind there is a diiTur
once of opinion and this opinion was
expressed in no uncertain tones by
parlies pi esunt. Wo aro not going to
try to tell which of tho decorations
wero entitled to tho various prizes hut
there were some which wo deem should
have special mention although they
did not receive very much recognition.
One which would strike the oyo of tho
true Nehraskan was that of Mrs. Chris.
Zeiss, which was decorated in Ne
braska's llower, tho "Goldoa Rod."
These ilowors of courso wero the
growth of 11)01 and.not artificial. Mrs.
L. M.Crabill also went an tho lino of
original decoration and her buggy was
tastefully arranged in Golden ll'id and
different grains. Mrs. Jamos Peter
son's decorations wore pink and whito
roses and wero pretty and it was ovi
dent that tho work of gotting them up
wns codsldorable. Among the number
which received no recognition by the
judges was tho rig of Mrs. Polnlcky
and Mrs. Horburgor, which was taste
fully decorated in pumpkins and
pumpkin vines. Among tho very pretty
rigs was that of Miss Nellio Warren
and Miss Ethol Hosmer, which showed
especial decorativo talent.
The buggy of Mrs. V. B. Fulton nnd
Mrs. H. W. Sherwood was a represen
tation of the sunflower and tho hun
dreds of these flowers both large and
small indicated a great amount of
work and many days' time in its deco
ration. It was number seven in the
The most tasteful rig when It came
to flowors, hard work in design and
what ll represented was that of Mrs.
A. Cenover and Mrs. John Tomlinsoa.
This was a representation of carnation
pinks, the favorite flower f our late
lamented president, aad portraits of
Mr. McKlaley were conspicuously dis
played. In the decoration of this
buggy over one thousand pinks were
used aad when color, design and work
manship wero considered it was one of
the best in tho bunch.
The two rigs which caused the most
merriment in tho parade was that of
tho Red Cloud roller mills represented
by a decorated cart to wbica was
hitcbsdJohn Polnloky's Jack driven
by the Misses Graves and Sherman,
and the automobile of Messrs. Clark
and Hughes which was propollod by a
"horse with his head where bis tail
ought to be."
All in all tho 11 wor parado wasa suc
cess but we would rataor bo oxcused as
one of tho judges in this difficult task.
Tho general display in all lines at tho
fair was above tho average and tho
ball games, riding tournament, foot
races and other attractions wero carried
out according to program.

The ceremonial was given to com

they came, approached the fire, ut

They were linked to the waist, and
their grent, dark, sinuous bodies were

An interval of silence followed, dur
ing which the fire played fitfully
upon the set, tra'le fnces of the spec

burning 'logs was the only sound in
the great plaza.
At last a solitary Indian leaped
from the shadowy rnmadas with a
wild, unearthly cry nnd circled about

with n short skirt of dnrk feathers.
They wore head dresses of black

the heads and backs of the kneeling
aavages with feathers.
During this ceremony not a sound
was heard but a low, monotonous
chant which the squaws had begun as
the procession halted.
After the sprinkling the band
leaped up nnd began a furious dance,
accompanied by yells nnd shrieks of
maddened excitement. As the dance
grew wilder the chants grew louder
and more frantic, the women joined
in the chorus, and for ten hours the
braves danced until they could hard
