The crowds everywhere haiv0 i
been large and entliusiastic and af
ter the first half day the weather
has been perfect
Monday morning the prospect fl
was dreary enough A steady rain
was falling and there was a most
discouraging outlook for a whirl
wind tour over the hills and hol
lows of north Christian
The band boys at Lafayette were
true blue and telephoned at seven
that they were coming rainor shine
The Committeemen on the route +
Lee King at Dogwood Dave Smith
at Fruit Hill and Foster McCown
at Bluff Spring also telephoned
that it would take a Galveston flood
to damper the order of the Demo
crats of their respective districts
and that the band wagon must
come rain or no rain
The band did not arrive until
eleven oclock and it was nearly
one before everything could be
made ready for the State totw
R Howell and Ben C Boyd were
sent ahead before noon to cancel
the appointment at Dogwood and
hold the crowd at Fruit Hill
The band in the two light wagon
ettes and followed by the commis
sary department in a road wagon
engineered by Geo Green Jrmade
the trip over a very muddy road to
Dogwood eight miles in two hours
Here a stop of ten minutes was
made The crowd had been dis
missed but about 50 people still reo
mained These were given a cou
pIe of tunes and after a brief ex
planation by Mr Meacham of the
change in the program a forced
trip was made four miles further to
Fruit Hill Here Col Howell was
just concluding an hours speech to
a crowd ot 150 people Mr Meach
am followed with a ten minutes
speech and after music and a good
