All is Ready for Poster Show: Mechanics' Pavilion Now Resembles Beautiful Art Gallery

The Mechanics' Pavilion is practically ready for the Poster Carnival of the League of Cross Cadets. Hundreds of artists and ladies have been arranging the poster exhibit for the past two days. They have transformed the building into an immense art gallery, in which 3,000 original posters of all styles and sizes are on exhibition. The Pavilion presents a most picturesque spectacle and visitors will be delighted with the display.

The judges began their work yesterday. They spent several hours in selecting the best individual poster and finally the prize was awarded to a local artist, Perham Nahl. The winning poster is five feet in length and is a beautiful design. It represents "The Angel of Temperance." The judges were Messrs. Newton Tharp, George E. Lyon and Aaron Altmann.
