when suddenly a mounted policeman came tear-

keep to the curb on both roads. Gossip began
"In it a funeral?"
"No. It cannot be. It Is a parade."

Crowds gathered at various points of vantage.

Tribune, what win they say when they behoit
doable that number? The old adage says. "On»
good tarn deserves another." Why, therefor**
should not one good array of celebrated eye*
merit another group containing twice «*
many? Those who guessed well last time with
ten are encouraged to redouble their efforts ts>
make a better average, now that there are
twenty palls, while on the other hand — or with
the other eyes, but making use of their own—
let those who failed to distinguish themselves
at the first trial determine to have greater satis
faction and saccess this time. In order to find
tho owners of these forty eyes to-day tho palns
