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 money expended. 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. cmnnator in Cincinnati; the parade of Orilules is Baltimore; the Indian Summer Carnival parades it New Orleans and the Priest of Pallas parades of Kansas city, are steadily at work on the foats which will be sen o oour streets on tlm 1lth of February. 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 be ued. Thework on the sixteen floats i course of constructiona s being push, ad with great speed and every indies tiou point to the most successful celebration in the history of the Carnival Club. Nothing will be spared to make it the grandest pagesat outside the Ctrescenut City ever seen by the people of Southera Louislana. From King Sucrose. The fUollowlng has bees received from his majesty by our mayor : His Graee, eruott, Duke of Thib odaux: GREETING-It is my very pSies ant task to notify your grace that his majesty the king of the Carnival left tbe Island of Thrift and will arrive dat his espital city at noon on Februa ry 11th, and be welcomed y hisb loysausbjects with fittinog ceremonies.
