Pbe Lust Day a Very Disagreeable The Show Has Been a Sacred Concert Laat Evening. The Mikado Garden, tbe great flower show, las "come and gone" having closed with a sacred conceit last evening at Greene's opera louse. Saturday, the last day of the show, was a very disagreeable one since It snowed, rained and sleeted about all day and the ater found Its way Into the tent In acveral places. It waa too cold and disagreeable to ic out and tbe attendance the last day there- 'ore was light. The sacred concert which was to have taken place In the gardens had to be held In tbe opera house on account of tbe Inclemency of :he weather. It was quite well attended, :hougb not as well aa had been expected, lad It been announced earlier that the con- cert would be held at the opera house t Is thought a full house would have been se- cured. The concert waa given by tbe Baker opera company and the McElbluuey band of Lisbon. Both these companies the past week have made warm friends In tbla city, and merit them. Tbe program contained several fine selections, and was well received. Em- met Drew sang a good solo and was encored. Silent Heroes" and "Praise the roth elicited hearty applause and encores. The violin solo by Jobann Roermeliter was very fine and fully appreciated. Miss Kitty Marcellus sang a nice solo, and won a hearty encore. Mr. Deshon, the comedian, delivered a recitation. He was encored several times, but tald that It was a sacre i concert and be would have to make his funny business as sa- cred as possible. The selections by the band were very nice and fully appreciated. The Mikado Gardens has not only served as a place of amusement and entertainment, but It has served to advertise both Mr. Hlgley and Cedar Rapids. They were open six and were visited by about people dally, many, yes tbe major portion coming from other towns and outside of this city. Those who visited tbe gardens bad the pleasure ol feasting the eye on tbe beauties of nature as presented In tbe myriads of posies, and In the great number of handsome articles of needle fancy, and artistic work, tbe productions of the deft lingers of tbe ladles of Rapids There were rare plants there, some the likes of which bad never been seen before by least nine-tenths of those wbo visited the place. Tbe Mikado Gardens, though an experi- ment, have proven a success. Tbe ladles having charge of the major portion of thi booths actually met with better success finan daily than they bad anticipated. Their sales were quite large and they netted nice lit tie sums for their societies' treasuries. Mr Higley assured a GAZETTE reporter that hi would enlarge upon tbe experience gained and that next season he would double ef forts put forth this. Ho felt sure that al would take a little Interest In It, more b y the car nearest him before be could get out of the way and knocked down on the track. In some unaccountable way MB body and feet were thrown outside tbe rails, but lie bead was run over by tbe wheel
