The Carson Guard may justly claim the honor of having given the most successful masquerade ever given in the State. The hall was packed with masquers and .spectators, and the affair from the beginning of the grand march until the last couple glided out of the back door was as jolly and enjoyable as one could wish. The music was ex cellent, the decorations of the hall in good taste and the odd characters who came together iiuoii. were all satisfied with the hospitality and liberality of the Guards. The committee who awarded the prizes seemed to reflect the ideas of most of the dancers. They decided as follows. : Richest costume, Mrs. Senator Kaiser (Silver Ciueen) and E. A. Culver (Arabian Prince); most original costume, Miss Gallaway, of Vir ginia, ("Greenaway") best sus tained character. Den Darrett, Rubenstein, Music Mad," sec ond richest costume, Mrs. Alt. The commute selected to make the awards of the prizes consisted of Governor Laugh ton, Col James Crawford, Captain Dunn, Mrs. Captatin Lyon and Mis. Carlton. Hall JL nedrr'M Keneflt.
