not. Waivers were asked on him and received.

Lighting of Big Parade.
Part i i ilar attention will be given tWs
year to Hie lighting of this parade. There
is no criticism to offer against the light-
ing of former parades but there has sim-
ply been advancement In this particular
as well as In all others.
Oeoigously decorated floats will proceed
through a hazy most of red and will Im-
press 11 I who witness as so many be-
spangleu clinriots gliding through a mys-
tic cl' iii with the red of a setting un.
Those who may occupy positions 8omo
blocks up the street In advance of the
parade will be given the Impression that
winged chariots lined with gold and sil-
ver and draped with diamonds pearls
and other gems rich and rare are com-
ing floating toward them from out a cloud
of flaming red.
No expense has been spared to make of
this parade the most magnificent ever
witnessed in the country.

MouMton i marked for a second Inva-
tnn of the Bishop booster excursion that

The special five Pullmans bearing the
men that somebody remarked while they

op will arrive at the Grand Central sta-
tion at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon. The
party will remain here four and a half

Terminal railroad station. Jut -what
thev will do to Houston may he ur-
mlHi'rt by those who met them In the brief
spare of time they spent in this city
while en route to the State fair. That
they are a hunch of live wire boosters
of the first water was evident from the
moment the train pulled up under the
station shed and they will be given the
key of Houston with all other acces-
sories going to make a hearty weloame.
The party comprises nlnly-eTn grown
people Including many of th wives and
other female members of the families
of Hlshop business men and thre enthu-
siastic Bishop bahlcs that promise to
make booster with all the qualities in
that reaped of their puretns.

Bishop. They are supplied. It 1 under-
stood with literature and souvenirs but-
tons badge? pennants and other para-
phernalia of that like and before they
dipiiit will leave enough Bishop adver-
tising in the oily to be remembered as
lung as memory endures.
Showing la Unexcelled
f ur a town that three years ago waa
part of the undefined prairies of Nueces
county without other building than a rail-
road station. Bishop makes a showing
thut Ik perhaps unexcelled ln the State.
The booster train Is one of the most Im-
portant that haa ever left the southwes-
tern part ot tlie State on an evangelical
mlsHton of this kind and magnitude.
Streamers extend the length of each

read at distanceH of a thousand or more
yards thn nature starting point and iles-

The party spent two days at Dallas
and are said to have created a greater
Mentation In tho way of impressing oth-
ers there of the live qualities and busi-
ness spirit of their town than any oth-
er event of the two days. At each sta-
tion en route stops of ten or more min-
utes are made and the opportunity for
advertising the black land belt of Nueces
county made the moat of.
All Monday night will be spent on the
road from Houston to Bishop arriving
thero at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning.
Kvery member of the Bishop excur-
sion is a living advertisement of the
place and has a persuasive manner of
pouncing lmmedfutely upon the stranger
as the latter comes within his reach
and Impressing him forthwith with the
fact that Bishop is the best healthiest
und most prosperous progressive little
city In South Texas.
While practically every profession and
walk of life is represented among the
delegates the mental pabulum distributed
by each is compounded on that one for-
