In the evening the usual dance was given in Rooney's hall, and w*s at- UUdiKt by the hugest ra owns trrmr" s see tabled. At a late hoar It broke up with plenty of those anxious to dance tIH daylight The rain did not dampen the ardor of the celebration, and word sent forth that the program would be con tinued Friday morning if weather permitted. Weather did permit and by 10 a. m., Old Sol had everything dry as powder. Riding out-law horses, known and unknown, was the first attraction, and the string of bucking horses was the best ever brought to Meeker. There were six or eight entries and there were splendid exhibitions of horsemanship. Briefly, Arthur John son took first money; Geo. Thomas second and Geo. A. Wear third. A side match was arranged in which Johnson endeavored to ride a different horse from the one which won him first money, but lie had hardly got well seated in the saddle when he was uncermoniously dumped on the grass. A relay race followed, iu which Walter Newsome took* first, Charley Miller second and Geo. Thomas third. Another calf ropeing contest was arranged beginning after the relay race, and two purses put up. There were about thirty entrants, and the throwing was much better than on the day previous. Messrs. Sullivan and Colter divided the prizes be tween themselves, they having tied on the time. Another extra not on the program was the successful riding of the famous TI horse by George Wear. He was the recipient of a well filled purse, and his backers carried him around on their shoulders after he tiad ridden the bucker to a standstill.
