The Coaching Club had an ideal day for its annual parade. It was an agreeable surprise to many to find that after two years this old established function had been resumed. The plans of the parade were only settled a few days ago, and much is due to the indefatigable efforts of the President, Col. William Jay, in getting up at short notice such a muster, and making an excellent showing.
