brilliancy as it was unique in ts military

Hugh McDonald of the Rodman Rifles.
Shortly after 8 o'clock the i;ong in the
rear of the ball announced the entrance
of the military procession, ai d it was
military in the strictest sense ol the word.
Militiamen don't give evidence of more
precision and skill. Under the com
mand of Sergeant McDonald, the ladies,
seventy-five in number, ' entered in
wos, coroiue from tbe Armory where
they bad assembled, and marched
down on either side to thi front of
tbe hall where tbe column forned. Tbe
opportunity thus afforded to view tbe
various costumes simultaneously and note
the ta-ite and skill and the originality of
