Nueva Casas GuaNdes, Met., May
o—Several (lays aato the eitizeue ot
this thrifty Mexican-Auierinan town
completed nil arrangements for their
fiesta in celebration of Cineo de Mayo
and this morning Nnevas Casas Gran-
des, decked in holiday attire, presents
an animated and sala appearance. All
are eager for the beginning of the sports
and memorial exercises. On all sides
the national colors of Mexico are in ev-
idence testifying to the enthusiastic loy-
alty of these people Americans as
veil as the native Mexicans are wear-
ing the colors that showed Juarez’s for-
ces the way to freedom.
It is expected that a large party of
excursionists from El Paso, Jnarez,
Gnzmau and San Pedro will arrive on
the train from Juarez today and every
arrangement.has been made to give the
visitors a taste of Nueva Casas Grandes
hospitality that will win a warm place
in their hearts for this town. Quite a
nnmber of visitors arrived yesterday
and many prospectors, miners and
ranchmen from the Sierra Madre COUli-
try aud neighboring valleys on the Ca-
sas Grandes river are here to touch el-
bows with civilization and to partici-
pate in the festivities attending the ce-
' The program-for today calls for eulo-
gistic addresses in commemoration of
the virtues—the patriotism and courage
of Mexico’s heroes of 18(11; athletic
sports of various kinds, bicycle racing,
horse racing, etc. At night there will
be several balls and a display of fire-
works. There will be music galore to-
day and tonight, as several bands and
orchestras have been engaged. The
racing program for today is as follows:
Six hundred yards dash, free for all,
for a pnrsc of $100, to which will be ad-
ded the entrance fee of $25 for each
Cowboy race—440 yards.
Slow burrow race.
Match race—100 yards dash.
Foot race—220 yards.
Bicycle race--440 yards, open to all.
It is interesting to study the people
brought together by this celebration.
There is- the active, restless business
man from El Paso or Juarez, the Mexi
can dandy, the proud and haughty
Mexican hidalgo, the owner of many
broad acres; the sturdy American min
er with eyes that see everything and
mnsoles as hard as rook from which he
hews the precious metals; the reckless
and athletic American and Mexican
cowboy, the honest thrifty Mormon full
of courtesy and good humor, the Amer-
ican railroad man who makes himself
at home in all countries; the quiet,

courteous Memican farmer; the silent
and aolemn-visaged Indian from the

looking like he wanted to apologize for
incumbering the earth and too indolent
to realize that he is able to better uis

Mexican busine-s man and last the smil-
ing, curious American eight,-seer. Of
course there are ladies, sonoritas aud
seuoras to match each specimen of the
male sex. Such a gathering in the Rady
decorated streets ot inis thrifty, little
town gives Casas Grandes quite a cosmo-
It is yet early in the morniug, but
people from Corralitos, Colouia Juarez
and other neighboring settlements are
already beginning to arrive on horse-
back, in wagons, buggies and hacks,
aud bv 10 o’clock they will begin to pour
into Casas Grandes in a constant stream
from down the valley, from np the val
lev, from across the river and from over
Ovvi'ng to a thick veil of green foliage
—the grove lining the banks of the river
as far as vision can reach—I cannot see
what is going on iu the old town o(
Casas Grandes, just across the river.
But 1 know that the citizens of the old
town have flung the flags of Mexico on
the outer walls and have decorated the
sombre old buildings of the town with
bunting.". While a majority of the peo-
ple of the old town will come over to
Nueva Casas Crandes to celebrate, still
those who remain at home have made
ample arrangements to entertain and
amnse all visitors.
In the morning I will report today’s
doings here and tell how it happened.

Feeding the nmw of a furnace whose heat

Forcing the bar into clinkers, throwing coal
on again and again:

Working with limbs sore and aching, heart

Eyes staring, head throbbing, back breaking,

Not a moment dare he pause from labor; he |

For the ship must fly fait through the wrater
