This araa only one Rroup of many hun

Some few came ln the forenoon?early
BnOUgh to see the hlR shlps arrive. As
the day wore on the crowd incr.as.d,
until by 3 o'clock there were two steady
Btreama f.f bumanlly, in its best sunday
dOihea WglMpg slowly north and south.
Prom (irant's Tomb to the viaduct waa
the beat polnt of vantage. for there one
could have a full view of the shlps, from
the N'.-braska, off 1.19th street, to the flag

Oft.-n a warshlp's steamer or motor
driven cutter came to one of the landlwjs
wlth offlcers or flallora on leave.
Another favorite re.stlng place was thfl
piaza at the Soldlers and Sallors' Monu
ment at H9th street. There tlie crowd. at
t'liies, waa two and three deep. Further
down thfl Drlve th"i" was almost a baby
parade. Peramhulators there were of
. verv style and -l->\ In whlch repoued rich
bablea, poor bables, and once ln a whiie
a black baby. In one double perambula

If the pedlers along the line were.to be
belleved, ther.' was no need to plead
lfi.orance regai'dlng the identlty of aqy of
the warshtoe, for they not only had "the
name and locatlon'' of them all, but they
were well stocked wlth plctures, gay
flaga. navy buttons and stlckplna.
Many of the apectatora remalntd untll
sundoivn to hear tiie but*aVs and the banda
