The parade committee, having in charge the innumerable details incident to the big street pageant today, has added as much to the preparations and are now only awaiting the arrival of the hour when the thing of the kind ever attempted in Southern Oregon will be a reality.

The trolley wire has been connected with the street mains of the light company and found to be fully ample to carry the load of thousands of lights that will be connected with it, as well as the motors for running machinery of all kinds that will be in the parade. Some of the floats that have been permitted to be inspected by a select few are pronounced to be most elaborate, and the rivalry displayed in bringing out the most gorgeous productions has resulted in building some splendid floats.

The following details show the place of formation of each division of the parade, the committeeman in charge with military assistant, judges, etc. Participants in the parade are asked to consult it and arrange to take their places promptly at the designated place and consult with the committeeman in charge, who will be on the ground ready to give directions and advice.


It was announced that this week's vaudeville bill would be the best of the season and in some respects it is.

Harry Fisher and company did an act with a bicycle which was truly wonderful.

The Four Kids did a right good stunt. They are clever dancers and make a pretty good stagger at comedy.

There was something new in the way of a trained dog. Mr. Vinton seems to have used kindness in the training of his dog, which gets remarkable results.

There is always something pathetic in watching dogs driven through their stunt with a whip.

The set of Adair and Dickey, two very pretty young women, was the big hit of the performance.

They were recalled again and again, and even after the piano had been wheeled off the stage the young fellows in the front row tried to get the performance repeated.

There was a good audience in attendance. This afternoon and tomorrow night the same excellent bill will be repeated.
