Th 6 s'orrsj were beautifully, decorated and the i booths were very aitra tive, some of I them excellent. Tbe free shows arc better than any of the kind ever seen here. The Melroses on their bicycles, The Brickett family on the trapeeze and the high alwa\s draw large ci owds and are well worth seeing. Tbe pay shows are all good and have done a large business and created much amusement. Tbe most attractive fea ture of the carnival was the floral parade Wednesday, a large number of prettily decorated vehicles formed in line at the Va. School for the Deaf and tbe Blind and paraded the streets mak ing a beautiful spectacle.

The special prize for pony rig, a rid ing whip silver mounted, was awarded to Robert W. Burke, Jr. It is needless to say that the judges in the contest had hard work to do in awarding the prizes as every one of the vehicles deserved a prize.

L Barth to., second, for the best decorated re fronts, were the awards made by the committees appointed for that pur pose. The military parade and competitive drill yesteiday was very creditable.

Ranson presenting the same. The commiteee composed of Capt. C. S. Roller. Jr., Capt. W. P. Tarns and Capt. T. D. Ranson, had much difficulty in arriv ing at a conclusion, so evenly were the | contestants matched. j The family and friends of Mr. Robert D.
