Historic Pennsylvania avenue, the path of other armies of peace and war, was like a valley between hills in a glory of color with the simplicity of nature's green and white dominating the color scheme along the line of march, while the dazzle of uni forms, the flash of guns, sabers, gold lace and brass buttons, and the confused roar of bands, bugles, lumbering aitillery and tramping thousands, added vividness and stirring activity to the brilliant scene. High on either side of the avenue, its buildings and reviewing stands were ed with humanity, rising from the solid full feathers and war paint. Cadet battal ions from the Virginia Military institute and Culver Military academy brought up the rear of that section. The third division, made up of veteran and patriotic organizations, was 'suggestive of the fast diminishing ranks of the vet erans of the north and south. Both sec tions were represented, the nearby north enr states and the District of Columbia furnishing the larger number of men in blue, with here and there the men in gray mingling with their former adversaries. The forth grand division, composed of c-ivis bodies, was probably the most di verse of all. Two hundred cowboys and Indians from Maricopa county, Arizona, perfored a perfect Wild West shod along the line of march, throwing lariats, giv ing exhibitions of trick riding and broncho busting. Tammany Hall, l.TiOD strong, headed by two bands, each "brave"' toppeel with a pure white silk beaver, and carrying a red, white and blue unbrella. accompanied by o." "real Indians'' in full tribal regalia, was marching at the inauguration of the first democratic president in -0 years. Foremost in this civic division came the Woodrow Wilson club of Trenton. And then came fully ,".(KM college, students from all parts of the country. Princeton, j m honor of its former president, had 1, j OWinen in line, who marched in cap and I gown, each wearing a Princeton badge on j his left arm. The Duckworthy club of j Cincinnati, with Til.Ht marchers in white I overcoats and dark red umbrellas, was a noteworthy patch of color in the whole scheme. Other notable organizations in the line were the Jefferson club of Philadelphia, the Iroquois club of San Francisco, the Mose ( rcen club of Bouisvillo, the. Berks County club of Pennsylvania, with its famous band enlisted during the war, the Indiana club of Indianapolis, and countless other clubs, many in showy uniforms and with striking devices. .Some of the governors who rode in the inaugural procession were with the mili tary organizations of their state and others rode with their brilliantly uniformed staffs in the last division. When the head of the column came to the point where Pennsylvania avenue swings around the treasury and continues on out past the White House, it halted C. F. Thomas, Ph.G. POTHECARY Kdward B.
