On tho word of n. Ijidy Who Known, girl might Just n well have stayed at home and minded tho parrot unless she could display between Madison Square and the Plaza one of those Bulgarian effects which look like n I'ost-Impres-nlonlst's sketch of the solar spectrum.

There were men In the Kasler parado of course, but they were Just plain men In human high hats and black coats. They made a sort of background for the Bulgarian blouses. You nnver realized the calm courage that lies In man until you saw yesterday one of the, many escorting glrla who looked as If they had stepped out of Matisse's wild est artistic handspring and who tried to look an if he didn't mind It.

Thero nnver was a bigger crowd In tho avenue on ICostcr Sunday For all ot tho daylight hours tho sldewnlkH wero packed and there was Just about room enough In tho broad roadway for thn automobiles, the hansoms and tho four wheelers.

CITY PARKS ARE THRONGED. The Vlvl.l Costume Niih.lnril liven the Zoo Anilnnls, A large part of thn Kaster parade In in tho menagerie seemed lnpressed by the wealth of primary colors so con spicuous nmong the big crowd of visitors that moved past their cages. Tho anlmnls were unusually quiet, ap parently absorbed In tho view of tho passing throng. But the big peacock that Is so happy on Sundays, when his vanity Is tickled by having 11 large audience, to look on as he spreads out his long feathers, grew peel Ish and huffy yesterday because ills color schrmo was Inferior to that of the crowd. Among the visitors was ,lohn McCor mlck, tho Irish tenor, and his wife and two children. Tho children had n paper bag ful of cakes for Klllcenny, tho Irish gout, and her kid, Klllumey. An animal much sought after yesterday was Jack, tho aged gray uss that Is supposed to be a stiro euro for whooping cough. Klderly women with grandchildren asked Head Keeper Rnyder to bo per mitted to tako tho euro for thn young sters. The treatment, they said, was especially efficacious on Faster owing to tho fact that ( hrlst entered Jerusa lem on un nffs. Tho treatment consisted In passing tho ullllcted child three times around thn ass's, hudy, under and over, and then lotting It sit nstrldn tho cross marked on thn unlmal'rt back. I'sually thn mother would ask for n few nt tho ass's hairs to bo taken homo and browed Into a tea for tho child who was III. Dozemt of children received the trntmint. A big crowd of feathered vliiltorrt from thn South entered tho park early yesterday morning, but only tarried for an hour or so. These wero crowr nnd thorn wero about 11 thousand of them, according to Head Keeper Billy Snyder nnd Policeman Flood, who saw them. The birds seemed to be tired, as though they bad flown n long distance. Their npenranco In such numbers waH thought to ho duo to tho storms In tho yesterday that the display was the finest ever produced In the park. The (lowers will be on exhibition for several weeks.
