LAVISH FLOATS ARE READY
A new, experience, a new thrill,
awaits Xebraskans who will be fortu
nate enough to see the historical pa
rade in Omaha October 5, when the
history if this section of North Amer
ica will be cast up before the aston
ished eyes of the multitudes in one
magnifiicent caravan of floats and his
Those who have - for twenty-one
years witnessed the great electrical
parade have a yet greater spectacle to
see in this historical parade.
The electrical parade comes every
May Be First and Last.
The historical parade comes now
for the first time in history, and will
perhaps never come again.
For, if the figures on expenses cur
rying out the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities
could be properly classified it would
be found probably that the production
ot this historical parade cost some
thing like $25,000.
Thirty-one costly floats and fifteen
historical groups wilt go to make up
this grand affair.
The floats are completed and most
of them are now stored in the great
fireproof balloon house at Fort
More study, more labor, more pains
and more artistic headwork have been
expended on the production of these
tioats than on any electrical parade
ever staged in Omaha.
Start, in Dim Ages.
Whv not? For this historical repre
sentation begins m the dim past, per
haps 1,000,000 years ago, perhaps
.Prehistoric monsters of the tropical
age, the tertiary period in which
aquatic and semi-aquatic monsters-
tlourished, is represented in the tirst
float. Giant rhinoceri with many
horns, tierce dinosaurs, lizard-like
monsters larger than freight cars are
represented, snarling and snapping at
one another as they drag their tetid
bodies about in the hot slime ot pre
Then comes the ice age when ava
lanches of ice rolled in upon this trop
ical life, from some unknown cause.
The gigantic mammoth or mastodon
is seen, a tropical animal, hopelessly
floundering around in an avalanche of
ice that is slowly bearing him to earth
only to overwhelm him, bury him and
roll on its destructive way.
Primitive Indian. Appear.
Again the icebergs disappear with
succeeding ages-and human life ap-
oears. The primitive Indians appear.

early Spanish explorers who roamed
over this territory, slew Indian, and

Indian Hunting Buffalo.
A float representing the vanishing
races is another of great interest. It
is a float with life-sized buffalo chased
bv an Indian on his pony. The Indian,
the broncho and the buffalo alike have
vanished, or are rapidly vanishing.
These are but a few of the tioats ot
interest in the very foremost part of
this magnificent parade. The parade
will probably be nearly two miles
long. The whole hisotrywf the terri-
torv will be covered and taithtully
represented, even to the first inaugu
ral ball, which will be represented by
persons actually in the costumes of
the day and engaged in dancing while
the parade moves down the streets.

THREATENS BORDER CITY
EI Paso, Tex., Sept. 19. More than
100 Mexican refugees who fled Chi
huahua City following Villa's attack
last Saturday arrived in Juarez to
day, bringing with them their fami
lies and their household goods. Most
of the arrivals expressed the intention
of crossing into the United States
in search of work.
Earlier reports placing the Villa
Josses at between 200 and 250 were
borne out by the arrivals, who also
estimated the Carranza casualties va
riously from 200 to 600. An Amer
ican mining operator, who passed
through Chihuahua City on his way
from Zacatecas, said that he had been
told that the government troops lost
aboXit 400 men.
American military reports here to
day indicated that during the attack
a number ot the members ot tne gar
rison joined Villa and that he since
has been joined by several inaepeno
An air of subdued excitement was
manifest in Juarez today. Cavalry
patrolled the railroad south of the
town and artillery and field pieces
were mounted on the hills to the
south, General Francisco Gonzales
denied, however, that any fears that
Villa may attack the town are enter
tained. He added that no reports had
been received in Tuarez from the force
under General Matias Ramos, which
is 'pursuing the bandit chieftain into
the Santa uara canyon district.
A story current in Chihuahua City,
according to arrivals, .is that on his
retreat, Villa captured a peon and or
dered him to say to General Jacinto
Irevino on his return: Villa says
next time -he comes alter you hell
drop out of the sky, but first he is
going to Juarez to drive the garrison
there into the Kio urande.

WRITER RIDES IN "TANK"
British Front in France, Sept. 18
(Via London, Sept. 19.) The most
dramatic and picturesque battle of
the British army in all its two years
in France was fought on September
IS. Here is the sto'y of how all
kinds of men from the ends of the
earth took part in this mighty con
flict. In the same dressing station this
week the correspondent of the Asso
ciated Press has seen Canadians, New
Zealanders, English, Scotch, Irish,
New FoundlandeTs and Americans.
There were some of the men of many
countries who took part in the now
historic battle and with them there
went into action those armored mo
tor cars called "tanks," which are to
the credit of a quiet officer of engi
neers. When the correspondent met
this officer in London six months
ago and asked him what job he was
now on he replied: an, sn; aont
tell I" It was the "tanks" that com
pleted the wonderful business of this
battle. Today when the correspon
dent was calling on a Canadian briga
dier it was a "tank" called the "cor
don rougo, looking like a prehis
toric monster m a skin of modern
armor and with engines inside which
took him across the field of shell
craters, weaving its Way with
ovthonic adaptability by all irregular
ities up to the door of the brigadier's
The skinner of "the cordon rouge'
alighted and with phleamati'c drawl
announced that he reported for fur
ther orders. The brigadier laughingly
bade him not to start the Brute down
the stairs of the dugout, but move it
to one side and wait, bo the tank
ambled with the bulky leisure of a
hippopotamus over some more shell
craters to a place where it would be
out of the way until it was needed.
Canadian. Storm Trenches
Then the correspondent went over
the ground which the Canadians had
taken up to the edge of the village
of Courceletta. Later they stormed
the village. He met Canadians who
came from Montreal, Toronto, Win
nipeg and Vancouver. But when he
asked some of them what part Of
Car.ada they hailed from they re-
olied: "The same country as you do
the United States." There were men
with the accents of Missoun.and New
Eni-land and others who on the soil
of France hailed one another in the
French tongue of Quebec.
We srot into a big show all right,
said the Americans, "and that is what
we came here for." These men who
had rushed to the attack of the ridges
of the bom me against machine gun
fire and shells carried themselves by
all accounts in a manner worthy of
the traditions of the civil war. It
was the Canadians' first offensive on
any big scale. They stood the shock
of attack at the second battle of
Yores, at St. Eloi, Orrell hill and
Sanctuary wood and it had been their
fortune uo to the present to stand un
der blows rather than give them. They
wanted their chance on the Sornme to
make good, as they said, and they
This rainy day one saw battalions
of them marching out from the
trenches they had won and other bat
talions marching in. Those fresh from
the fight were plastered with mud,
but triumphant. They had a hundred
stories to tell, while the rain dripped
from their tarpaulins, of how the
Bvng boys had made good, lhe
wounded, also drenched by the rain,
eagerly joined in these stories. The
Canadians are known as tne ttyng
bovs" after the name--of their corps
commander, General Sir Julian Byng,
and also by virtue of a popular song
in London entitled "The Byng Boys
Are Here." .
Western Men Have Initiative.
General Byng grasped the idea that
the Canadians have initiative. Jut
there, as far as the correspondent
could learn, is the essential of the universally-admitted
which the Canadians dealt when it
came their turn to play the part in
tOontinned' oa Pago Two, Colnnm Fire.)

vNew York, Sept. 19. An effort by

the committee explained, announce

Mayor Mitcnei caned into confer

leaders that unless he and the com
mittee of busines. men settled the
