Rang Outfit Gorgeous.
The state carriage in which" their
majesties rode, and which was a
veritable dream in artistic gold and
blue enameling, was drawn by eight
white (horses, with outriders in uni
forms of scarlet and gold.
Two hundred, .life guards *n their
magnificent Uniforms and mounted
-^sapon jbltfck chargers cleared the way
for the procession. Immediately
behind marched Colonial detach
ments. All branches f the two
service^nWere Represented jh the
The refute of the procession was
from Buckingham Palace up Con
stitution Hill and thence by way of
Piccadilly, St. James's Street Pall
Mall Trafalgar Square, The Strand
Fleet Street, Ludgate Hill, St. Paul's
Churchyard, Queen Victoria Street
and King William Street to London
Bridge, where the procession passed
over into Southwark.
Guarded hy 50,000 Troops.
Fifty thousand troops lined the
route and at every important street
intersection there was stationed a
military band, which played the
national anthem as the royal car
riage passed. Back of the troops
were the spectators, a veritable sea
of faces, men, women and children,
enthusiastic almost to wildness.
Never before, probably, had a
British sovereign received a more
cordial greeting at the hands of his
or her subjects. The roar started
at the moment that the King and
Queen descended the steps of the
palace to their carriage, and it last
ed until their return.
Horse Trod on Flowers.
It was a popular reception in every
sense of the word. Myriads of dainty
white handkerchiefs fluttered in the
air on either side of the fashionable
avenues through which the pro
cession passed in its early stages and
seemed to keep time with the hoarse
cheering of the masculine element,
while children tossed out nosegays
and basket full of loose flowers,
only to be trampled under the feet
of the horses or crushed under the
wheels of the carriages.
When the carriage turned into
Piccadilly a large number of mem
bers of the Stock Exchange who oc
cupid a special stand sang Rule
Brittania with telling effect. A
little further on was a large stand
occupied exclusively by Americans.
Other stands and windows were filled
with hundred of Canadians, who
cheered enthusiastically and waved
their bags as their majesties came in

pleased with the loyal demonstration
by the representatives of the great
overseas dominion and acknowledged
the greeting by a graceful inclina
tion of her head.

"We are awaiting the return of

prominent persons in Bemidji and

His Hobby Explosives.
Dr. Dumas, in printed interviews,
has been quoted as saying that he
knows nothing of the ways of "yegg-
men," and that as far as explosives
were concerned he had no inside in
formation, except what he would
naturally learn in school work.
The state fire marshal's office
claims that no less than a dozen wit
nesses will be produced who will
testify that one of the doctor's hob
bies has been a boasted knowledge
of high explosives and liow to safe
ly handle them, an dthe habits and
methods of the work of yeggmen.
Dumas Friends Faithful.
The wonderful lack of nervousness
and admirable self-control of Dr.
Dumas, in the face of charges which
if proven true will land him in the
penitentiary is such that many of
his fell townsmen at Cass Lake ex

claims made by the state fire mar
