Was Great Success
A very much interested lot of visitors
were present at the Albert Park Play

entered if it had not have been for the
rain. When it came time for flying
kites, the wind wag just right and some
very good exhibitions were made. There
were all kinds of kites big kites, little
dainty kites ami 'fancy kites. Homo of
them would fly . hut more of tnem would
not. Taking everything in considera
tion, the event was a very successful
one nnd was well worth seeing.
Simon Carbonel, a Filipino boy, was
awarded the first prize on a beautifitj
aeroplane kite that soared five or afe.
hundred feet into the air and remnirfFl
there for an hour or two. The prize
was a pair of Winslow roller skates
given by the hnlem Hardware company.
The second prize was given to Eugene
Barnes who had an excellent kite beau
tifully decorated and well made. J he
prize was a Swiss music box given by
(ieo. C. Will. The third prize was
awarded to llcrmojenes Carbonel on a
fancy kite that made a good record in
flying. The prize wag a large box of
cuudy given by Frank S. Ward.
The judges were Jos. Albert, J. O.
