Crowds are coming in from Denver
and the east and strangers line the
streets for blocks. Many cowboys

their red and yellow blankets, are at
tracting much attention from the vis

numerous other festivities make up the

are giving themselves over to two days

Minneapolis during the greater part

The parade was a notable affair as
such things go, well handled, quick

It was a day of pride for the old
soldiers in themselves and for the
multitude in the soldiers.

and another through his temple, enter

a negro of this city, has survived for

another negro in a dispute over a
