cignty. Police ofiiecna mounted and on
foot kept the passage ways clear on the
Michigan boulevard and Twenty-ninth
street side of the house for the Spanish and
other guest invited to the dinner. The
rmilinu princess was heartily cheered as
she alighted with tbe prince from her
carri age and passed up the crimson car
peted and covered way to the portal of the
Decoration of the Mansion.
The royal couple were met at the
threshold by Mr. and Mrs. Higinbotham
and welcomed to their home. The prince
and princess passed under and between the
silken colors of Spain and tbe American
republic.the stars and stripes being crossed
over the folds of yellow and red on each
side of the hall as well as at the far end,
forming artistic arches without detracting
from the harmony of colors in the perma
nej tdecorat.ons. Xone but the Spanish
colors adorued the dining-room wall,
lietwe -n the folds of red and yellow s"!k
over the head of the table reposed the coat
of-arms of Spain.
Orchids and Roses on tbe Tables.
Tbe floral decorations of the table-s con
sisted of exquisite yellow orchids and Jac
queminot roses in abundance. Spanish
melodies floated into the dining room from
a mandolin and guitar orchestra hidden
among the palms, ferns, and exotics of the
conservatory. There were no menu cards,
but at each plate was a rich, hand-painted
card bearing the guest's name under the
crossed flags of Spain and the republic. The
tables were arranged in oblong form but
without any foot. The presence of so many
members of theHiginbotham family rathrr
took from the ceremonious character of the
dinner. At the head of the table sat Presi
dent Higiubotbam and the Infanta, Mrs.
Higinbotham and the prince.

mittee accompanied the duke to the sta
tion. Before leaving the hotel the duke

Chicago had been the happiest of his life.
He could never forget his reception at the
hands of the people and returned the deep
est thanks therefor.
EULALIE AND BUFFALO BILL.
Tbe Two Are Illval Attraction at the Ex
It is hard to say which of two entirely
different personages attracted the most
attention today at the fair grounds In
fanta Eulalie or "Buffalo Bill" (Hon.
William F. Cody,
late member of a
a'nd now running
one of the "great
e s t shows on
earth"). The palm
probably went to
Eulalie, for it is a
rare thing for
Americans to see a
real, live princess,
while a whilom
w. r. codt. western scout of
respectable achievements is not so rare, al
beit few have such a record as Cody. Eu
lalie was received as befits royalty, dined
at the Administration building aud then
taken to the Woman's building, where
she was shown the Spanish woman's ex
hibit. "Buffalo Bin" and his cowboys formed
the escort for Governor Crounse. of Ne
braska, on the occasion of the dedication
of the Nebraska state building. The gov
ernor arrived at Woodlawn stition at 10 a.
m., from whence he was escorted to the state
building by the doughty scout and his wild
