the variety of ornamentation which
prevails there Everything s > ems to be
appropriate attractive and In keeping
with the occasion Looking up Main
street from the south tho most oon
eplcucus objects are two large hangers
stretched across tho street in front or
the two principal hotels the Worth and
the Delaware The national flag Is
everywhere on every side ns It alwais
Is In Tort Worth on festive occasions
for Tort Worth Is nothing if not
patriotic lied white and blue are eng
wrapped In thick folds about the store
fronts and around the awning posts
But all this Is interspersed with other
bright colors so that there Is nothing
like monotony There Is a combination
of brightness freshness and origi
nality about the decorations which
make altogether very pleasing effect
Houston street Is also beautifully deco
rated so that the drummers will be
cheered nt every step while marching
In procession to the city hall to the
