That the cit y was very much crowded while he was there on account of mardi gras, and that the transportation facilties to and from the grounds were insufficient. He also stated it was uotable that nearly all visi tors were from the professional class, few farmers having sufficient means to attend. It was slippery traveling here the first of the week, and many o! our citizens have sat down sudden ly and emphatically. NVe noticed j one individual particular who came along Monday evening stepping as high and as careful as a blind horse and whistling in low but ef fective toucs, “The Cast llose of summer.” The song was entirely out of place, and so was the man before he had gone a foot fotheT, for his feet shet out from under him, andho come dowu with a‘dull thud,’all doubled up like a cro quet wicket. He struck all over, and in falling tried to save himself, but it was no go. On pickiu£ him self up he found the fall had caused an oblique fracture of the scapula, pied his doramater, busted his cornucopia, and w: ecked his sara bellum. Perhaps we aro in error as to some of these medical terms, bht when you learn that wo have uo medical dictionary, you will per haps excuse us. Prescott (traded School*.
