Float Sixteen
The Laurel Tree of Paradise

"...was one of the most gorgeous floats in the line, and the little story connected with it is likewise interesting. It is described as the prettiest growing in the young green wood of Paradise, with song birds shrouded therein chanting their melody, so musical as to almost ravish one with the entrancing sweetness of their voices. But the clouds began to gather and overshadow it, and the shades deepened and the storm broke and rent this royal tree even to the roots."
