The Thib'x Carnival.
For years New Orleans has been
famed for its grand ipageants during
the Carnival season. Thousands are
attracted by the Mardi Gras festivi
ties and every section of our country
contributes its quota of sight seers
No money is spared to make the
occasion interesting and nlostructive.
A visit to the Crescent city is om.
pared to a trip to fairyland. As a
matter of naeesmity the business in.
terests of our great metropolid become
the beneficiary of the large gutlay of
Thibodaux nestling quietly and
serenely upon the banks of the beau.
tiful Latourche also provides every
year mirth and merriment to its fun
loving people and many visitors.
King Sucrosme selected several years
ago our thriving town as his capital
city, and next lardi Gras he will
pay as his annual visit. He will
come with all the pomp and glory
befitting such a sovereign, and will
be received with greater honors than
on any previous occasion. The parade
will be the finest and most gorgeous
ever witnessed here. Great prepara.
tions are being made and the Deutsche
man Brothers who built the loats for
the four annual parades of the Satel*
lites of Mercury of Louisville Ky;
the parades of the Order of the Cmi.

Orleans and the Priest of Pallas
parades of Kansas city, are steadily
at work on the foats which will be

The parade this year will surpass
last years from every imaginable
stand point. The floats last year
were small and quatty, being only
14 feet in length, 6 feet In width.
The loats this year number as
many as sixteen, average over twenty
two feet in length, tes feet In width
sad will be about 18 fet in height.
Spangles upon Spangles will be used
to add to the brilliancy of the fosat,
as well as over three hundred seqare
feet of costly highly colored tin toil
It will be remembered that omNe of
the floats i last years parade were
decorated with either spangles or
tin foil All the representations on
our floats thu year are being made of
papler masch moulded into proper
shape. After the float will be built
then will come the painting and deco
rating. Keg upon keg of paint anad
thousand upon thoesands of sheets
of tinsel Imported from France will
Thework on the sixteen floats i
course of constructiona s being push,
