The military and dress reception ten
dered Governor Horace Boies at Armory
hall, Davenport, last evening was one of
the most brilliant events in the tri-city
eocietv circles. The Democrat thus
describes the affair:
Shortly after 8 o'clock the throng began
to pour through the broad doorway at the
armory, and soon the floor presented an
animated scene. Stalwart men and hand
some women, the gleam of jewels and the
splendor of rich costumes, the rays of the
electric lights glancing from burnished
military trappings, from epaulets and
swords and all this set off by the con
ventional dress suits o( the civilians pres
ent tended to make the scene as beautiful
a one as is often witnessed.
Half way down the ball and a little to
one's left on entering stood the receiving
party. It consisted of his excellency.
Gov. Horace Boies; Mrs. J. B. Wylie,
Mrs. M. L. Marks Mrs. Dr. W. L. Allen,
Mrs. A. C. Fieke, Mrs. T. O. Swisey,
Miss Boies, the governor's daughter, her
friend. Miss Barber, Miss Helen Ham of
Dubuque, Mies Cora Weed, .f Muscatine
Miss Mamie Davidson, Miss Preston,
Miss Bryant, Miss Sanith. Adjutant Gen
eral Greene, Cpt. Ham, the governor's
military secretary, and members of the
governor's staff, Lieut. Col. Dodge, of
Burlington, Lieut. Col. J. S. Wylie of
Davenport, Lieut. Co!. McConlogue of
Mason City, Lieut. Col. Dodge of Bur
lington, Lieut. Col. Doaeherty of Mus
catine, and Mai. W. H. Goodrel of Des
As aecef sories to the general enjoy
ment the hall bad been tastefully decor
ated with bunting and an evergreen mot
to that arched one end of the hall spoke
to all its message of "Welcome." Scbil
linger's band discoursed sweet music
throughout the evening, and at a quarter
after 10. when it. broke forth in beautiful
waltz measure the throng took the hint
and scores of couples were soon lost to
their surroundings in the mazes of the
dance. The military ball was on and was
continued until a late hour.

George Simms, better known as "Texas
Ueorgc, walked into town yesterday at
about 11 30 a. m., after a 40-mile jaunt
that served to put an edge on his appe'
tite for dinner. He left Chicago last Sat
urday evening on his way to Pueblo, on
foot. Some time ago George completed
a journey from Galveston to Chicago on
which he claims to have won a 1 1.000
wager. This time be is going it, so he
says, on a wager of f 1,000 a side, the
conditions being that be is to make his
destination and pay his way as he goes
along. This be is doing by the sale of
pictures of himself in his traveling cos
tume and also in civilized dress. Pysi
cally he is a well-built young man of
ruddy complexion, capable apparently of
enduring any amount of exertion. He
tarried io Davenport over night and con
tinued his tramp this morning.
