Milan is to have a Fourth of Jul v
celebration this year that will exceed
anything ever held before. The
grounds are beautiful, being situated
at the foot of Black Hawk's Watch
Tower, and the people will be here in
crowds, as they can see the great
canal, celebrate the Fourth, enjoy
the tine fishing which abounds in the
Rock river, and also take in the
sights of Carr's island and Haakins'
island, where lately a splendid resort
nas been made by Capt. Blair and
Parser Baker. The program of the
day calls for sack, tub and wheel
barrow races, catching greased pig,
climbing greased pole, a game of base
ball, horse racing, and in fact every,
thing which goes to make up a cele
bration of that kind. Two bands
will be in attendance and a grand
procession leaves Milan at 10 o'clock
for the grounds. To sum all into
one, Milan will have the grandest
celebration she has ever had.
