Yesterday was an ideal carnival day
and with crowds arriving on each In
coming train last evening proved to
be the banner night of the carnival In
point of attendance no less than In the
amount of Rood natured enthusiasm
manifested. Everywhere mirthd an
merriment reigned supreme. The
crowds were the most orderly ever
seen here in connection with any fes
tival occasion, and yet not one has
been heard to complain of ennui, for
there are dozens or interesting. In
structive, entertaining and amusing
features presented In connection with
the C. Y. Parker shows. In fact it
has seldom been the privilege of citi
zens to see so many meritorious at
tractions offered In connection with an
event of this nature, and when the
announcement' went forth that the
Parker management would present
such a stupendous array of attractions
many of the more conservative among
our citizens supposed it to be but the
work of some sherwd adept in the art
of exaggeration in advertising.
But now the carnival has extended
over one half of the scheduled time,
three full days of genuine merriment
have passed, and the universal opin
ion expressed, echoed and reechoed on
every hand, is that the carnival at
tractions fostered by the Parker man
agement are the biggest, best, cleanest
and In all respects the most worthy,
that have ever paid I.a Grande a visit.
There is not an attraction that is not
worth while: not one thst embodies
even a suggestion of grossness .or
laxity in Its moral fiber.

George Broadhurst'B "The Mills of
the Gods," which comes to the Stew
ard Opera blouse next Monday, May
10, will prove one of the real dramatic
treats of the season. '
The play is produced under the
personal direction of Brnest Shuter
who managed the tour of Miss Mary
Shaw last season, and who was one of
the prime promoters of that magnifi
cent - production of "The Shepard
King." . , ...
To "The. Mills of the Gods" Mr.
Shuter has given the closest attention
to details In scenic, light and other
effects. The piece requires more than
twenty acting parts, besides a corps
of supernumeraries, and as Mr. Shu
ter's general representative puts it,
"We carry everything but our own
weather and the audience, which we
allow and expect the local manager
to furnish." .
This is the iirst. western tour of
Mr. Broadhurst's best work. It was
running in New York at the Astor
Theatre at the IsameMlme anothr of
the author's plays, "The Man of the
Hour" was on at the Savoy. There
was a keen competition between the
managers of the two companies, and
every known trick of the manager's
art was resorted to to boom business.
"The Mills of the Gods" won out by a
substantial lead financially, and un
doubtedly would have excelled the run
of "The Man of the Hour" had it been
possible to have cancelled other con
tracts, r .
