So long has Uncle Alec lived In this city that he has become a fixturo among tho white folks fhom he serves In various' capacities. So active is ho in the performance of his work that age has made no material Impression upon him and few suspect that his one hundredth birthday is approaching.

One thousand five hundred twenty dollars. This closes our rally, mak ing the grand total of $8,539.00. The Editor of the Sun opened the carnival with one of the greatest ad dresses ever heard in Omaha. Every body is asking us when will he be back? On Sunday evening.
