entering their newly built church, while in the rear hostile
Indians were skulking. This tableau was carried out
very effectively and reflected credit upon Owen S. Smith
and Aron A. Dickey, the committee in charge. This re-

Washington street.

Sixth Division.
Floats, Industrial, Society, Merchants, and Trades.

Yantic Woolen Co. This float was planned to show the
process of manufacturing carded woolen goods, picturing
it from the farm to the needle. There were live sheep and
wool in the differing forms up to the finished goods. Four
horses drew the float, two men in jumpers leading the
horses, while on the float were two shepherds under the
canopy. There was a display of flags and bunting, the
whole making a pretty picture.

The Shetucket Cotton Co. This float was an A-shaped
structure displaying a piece of every grade and kind of
cloth made at their factory in Greeneville. The many
variegated colors made up a handsome exhibit, which was
designed by Supt. W. I. Woodward.

The United States Finishing Co. had one of the most
attractive of the industrial floats in line. On a rectangular
frame with an arched roof were displayed in six sections,


two on each side and one on each end, the productions of
this big plant, including mercerized sateens and pongees,
printed lawns, printed taffetas and serpentine crepes. On
top of the roof was the name of the corporation in letters
of white on a blue ground, below which was indicated the
branches constituting the company. The arched roof was
covered with stripes of red, white and blue, carrying out
the patriotic color scheme. The float was the design of
Frank H. Lester.

The Norwich Belt Mfg. Co. displayed as the products of
their plant different colors of leather, belting and lace
leather on a square float, ten feet long by eight wide, hand-
somely decorated with bunting, and drawn by four horses.
Lengthwise of the float was the name of the company. In
the center was a large three-ply belt, 52 inches wide, no
feet long which with two smaller ones, each 34 inches wide
and 65 feet long, required a total of 249 steer hides. The
entire process took place at the company's big tannery in

The Clinton Woolen Mill's float illustrated the produc-
tions of their plant. On a platform 8x 15 feet,was a four-
foot fence of posts of spools roving off the cards. Be-
tween these posts were bobbins and yarn, above the fence
was a four-foot lattice work, made of twisted strings of
billiard cloth. In the corners were looped up bobbins of
yarn. In the center stood a ten-foot pole, supporting a
canopy of twisted billiard cloth. The front, red, white and
blue broadcloth, was draped. A basket of pure white wool
and a beam of warped yarn ready for the loom also were
shown. The horses wore broadcloth blankets, bearing the
name of the company in letters of gold felt. The float was
designed by L. H. Saxton, assisted by Mrs. Saxton.

Hopkins & Allen Arms Co. Representing the firearms
industry this company had an attractive float. In the center
of a base 14x8 feet was a pyramid, surmounting which was
a flag of each country, representing the export trade. At
each corner was a staff with banners with the name of the


company, and on the skirt "Hopkins & Allen arms circle the
globe." At the corners there were stacks of rifles and guns,
and on top of each staff was a revolver. Flowers and colors
on the pyramid with other floral decorations made a pretty
effect. White flowers in a green background formed the
name of the company on the pyramid.

The McCrum-Howell Co.'s float was drawn by six
horses, containing a display of heaters and bathtubs, refrig-
erators of several sizes, displaying the products of their
local industry. The float attracted much attention. On
their second float was a display of radiators of several sizes,
showing the work put out by the concern. Their floats con-
tained their business cards and made a pleasing exhibit.

Geduldig, the florist, had a float completely covered
with products of the greenhouse, garden and forest, all com-
bining to make a beautiful display. This proved a feature
of the parade.

Totoket Mills Co. Drawn by four horses and gaily
trimmed with red, white and blue. This float contained
two looms which were in operation. One was 250 years
old and was brought here from Germany, while the other
was a modern one. Several women from the mill were
on the float and the goods manufactured were displayed.

The Ponemah Mills Co. Their float represented a
scene on a cotton plantation, 'way down south in Dixie,
with the cotton plants in bloom, watermelons in the fore-
ground and happy negro cotton pickers with banjo and song
in the field and a negro driver. It was drawn by six horses,
caparisoned in white and red, while the skirt of the float
and banners at the corners were of the same colors. It was
made realistic and a feature of the parade, and at the review-
ing stand the singers stopped and entertained the President
and crowd with songs.

The Ulmer Leather Co. A float drawn by three yoke
of prize steers contained the forms of five large belts, the
center one, the largest, representing a four-ply waterproof


cemented leather belt, 180 feet long, 108 inches wide, 6,480
pounds, requiring 540 steer hides ; capable of transmitting
3,500 horsepower, with a sign, "The steers will go faster
when Ulmer makes them into machinery belting." In each
corner was a form representing a two-ply leather belt 91
feet long, 48 inches wide, weighing 2,912 pounds, and re-
quiring 184 steer hides. There were plumes and flags, with
a red, white and blue shield on each belt, with streamers
leading from the nine-foot belt to each four-foot one. There
were also cables of red, white and blue, with small flags and

Uncas Specialty Co. Auto parts such as timers, dis-
tributors, siren horns and magnetos, were shown on this
float in two pyramids. There was a canopy top, the posts
being wound with colors.

Reliance Worsted Co. This float was 16 x 18 feet, with
the platform and posts decorated with red, white and blue
bunting, and in the center of the top an American flag. Two
bales of Australian wool were shown, bright colored
worsted yarn on spools and in skeins, and about the edge
was worsted cloth in various processes of manufacture.
There were two cases of goods, one marked San Francisco
and the other Portland, Me.

Bard Union Co. Representing Aluminum bronze on
a four horse float was a huge union, such as is made by
the company, being eight feet high and seven feet wide,
with the word Bard on one side and Patent on the other.
Business cards of the company were on each side of the
float, which was prettily decorated with red, white and
blue, the wheels being done in colors, with gold hubs.

J. T. Young Boiler Co. This handsome float, decorated
in colors, had a single boiler on a pedestal, with streamers
running to it from posts at each corner. It made an attrac-
tive display of the company's product.

white, the Hermitage brand of canned goods being dis-

in yellow and white.

Norwich Nickel & Brass Co. Displayed on a four-
horse float with two tiers of shelves were the products of
the factory, fastened on a background of red plush. There
were sponge shelves, cast bases for fixtures, tie, card and
collar stands, umbrella fixtures and mirrors in polished and
brushed brass and nickel. On the top, which had a brass
railing about it, were forms for women's shirt waists, with
palms, while at each corner of the float were revolving cloak
racks. Business cards of the firm were held in card racks.
There were a few flags and the name of the company was
on the skirt of the vehicle.


C. H. Davis & Co. Two horses driven tandem, with
white blankets, drew the float of this company, which had
a pretty Japanese roof effect, and displayed were barrels of
pork, sausages and pails of lard.

Uncas Paper Co. This handsome float attracted much
attention, having, as it did, a canoe on a sixteen-foot float,
with material about it representing water. Elevated length-
wise of the float was a roll of newsboard four feet in diam-
eter. At each corner was a roll of paper, the product of
the mill, and on each side of the float were four foot circles,
through which could be seen Indians paddling the canoe.

resenting export trade, and at the front and back were large
American flags. The float was drawn by four horses and

and one that attracted much praise and comment along
the line of march. It was drawn by six coal black horses,
each equipped with an elaborate blanket advertising the
Wasserman piano. On the float were three pianos, all being
played at one time by three young Norwich misses. Beau-
tiful palms and flowers showed that a great deal of time and
pains were spent on it by their decorator, Adelard Morin.

car as a feature and novelty in the parade. It was direct
from the "ould sod," and besides the driver of the one horse,
carried six passengers, three on each side, in white gowns
and wearing green sashes fair types of Irish beauty.

From every standpoint the parade was a complete suc-
cess. It was well managed, got away in good time, went
over the prescribed route and came back in good order. By
a close estimate the number participating was slightly less
than 4,000.

Estimates of the number viewing the pageant vary
between 50,000 and 75,000, but persons familiar with Nor-
wich history unite in declaring it the greatest ever. It was
not marred by an accident of a serious nature, and was in
every way the greatest feature of what is being made a
great celebration.


The loan exhibition in the Converse Art Gallery under
the auspices of Faith Trumbull chapter, D. A. R., opened


at 2 p. m. on Saturday with a choice and varied collection
of ancient articles connected with Norwich history.
Nothing less than seventy-five years old was thought of
sufficient antiquity to be interesting, and from this the
pieces dated backward through Revolutionary and colonial
days to the time of the founders of Norwich. There were
even a few older than Norwich herself, dating from early
days in Plymouth and Massachusetts Bay colonies.
