A Week With the Granger.
The 19th Annual Picnic and Exhibi-
tion at Grange Park.—Thousands of
Visitors.—Good-Times for All.—
Many Speakers of Note.—All
Kinds of Weather, But
the Tenters are Con-
Another cycle has been completed,
another milestone scored off by our
generation, and as if glad that the sea-
sons have flown with such speed our
farmer friends meet for their harvest
home picnics and to talk over the sum-
mer’s outcome and the future of their
calling. ’Tis always the last gala time
before winter sets in and with its mad
abandon comes thoughts of the brown
and seering autumn, when everything
is beginning to decay and summer has
lost all that bloom which has kept her
fresh and sweet to us all, The vari-
colored foliage; the browning nuts and
the chirp of the katydid, the inevita-
ble signs of fall, bring to mind that
when this week is over perhaps the last
out deor gathering of the year has taken
This, the third annual picnic and ex-
hibition held in Grange Park, at Cen-
tre Hall, under the direction of Centre
county Pomona Grange opened under
the most auspicious circumstances. For
months previous heralds and advertise-
ments had been proclaiming the beau-
ties and conveniences of the Park, both
for exhibitor and camper. What then
could one be surprised that when the
grounds were formally opened, on Sat-
urday afternoon a general rush for quar-
ters was the result.
Over one hundred tents were occupied
during Sunday and when Monday came
as many more were taken and quickly
filled by the merry campers. The de-
lightful weather of Saturday and Sun-
day made it very pleasant at the Park,
and church services, in the auditorium;
were well attended. In the morning
at 10 o’clock, Rev. W. E. Fisher, Luth-
eran pastor at Centre Hall, preached
from Gal. II, 20th. In the afternoon
Rev. Baskerville, the Presbyterian min-
ister occupied the auditorium pulpit
and delivered a very able sermon on
“Faith.” The third service for the day
was conducted by Rev. Eisenberg, of
the Reformed church, who preached
from Luke 10th and 23d.
Monday at the picnic did not amount
to much outside of a general hustle by
late comers for tents and of fakirs and
exhibitors for room. Those who had
gotten there on Saturday were comfort-
ably fixed up and enjoying themselves
and as the WATCHMAN correspondent
strolled around the grounds he noticed
every quarter alive with men who were
putting up sheds for exhibits and wares.
The scene was indeed one of activity.
It pleased the eye too to sce so much
fuss and hurry for it augured well for a
successful week. The threatening weath-
er of the morning kept a large crowd
trom gathering on the grounds, but
when the sun shown out clear in the af-
ternoon people became more venture-
some and the wide Park avenues be-
came fairly alive with gay strollers.
In the evening the formal services
which opened the picnic and exhibition
were held in the auditorium, at one end
of which a nicely decorated stage fur-
nished room for those who took part:
The grange motto: ‘Esto perpetua’’ in
flowers, is a prominent feature of the
decorations and it,with a handsome flor-
al cross, and some flags complete a very
pretty effect. A choir opened the ser-
vices. Hon. Leonard Rhone then de-
livered the address of welcome. Isaac
Frain, Master of the couaty grange “and
Prof. Neff, of Millheim, both spoke. A
number of other gentlemen made short
addresses and the meeting closed.
Reveille is not sounded on the
grounds and campers can sleep as long
as they want, but when one is accus-
tomed to rising early in the morning he
seldom makes an exception of a time
like this. The people who peeped out
of their tents on Tuesday morning saw
a heavy fog settled over the grounds and
and an ugly, drizzling rain falling. It
augured ill for a big day in camp and as
the rain continued during the entire day
there was not much done. People kept
to their tents. Visitors were few and in
general it was a tiresome day at the
Park. We took advantage cf the gen-
eral quiet to look around the grounds.
Outside the erection of a few shelter
tents and a new fence along the rail-
road there has been no improvement
made since last year. A few of the
large exhibits such as that of the Penn-
cylvania State College, Harry Chaapel,
florist, of Williamsport; Wolf & Craw-
ford’s Department store, of Centre Hall;
Harper & Kramer, of Centre Hall;
Boozer Bros., implements, of Centre
Hall; Lyon & Co., McCulmont &
Co., implements, of this place, and sev-
eral others attracted our attention, but
aside from them there was nothing on
the ground to incite interest. No stock,
no specially interesting implement ex-
hibits, or anything of the kind intended
to hold a crowd. And it was a wonder
tous that anyone came at all when
there was absolutely nothing to see.
Down along tho railroad there was
some signs of activity for despite the rain
the peanut booths and fakirs were ply-
ing their trade with some hearty young-
sters for whom the water and the pros-
pects of a cold had no terrors. Down
in that locality is the only place where
any amusement can be had, aud if you
want it there you must make it for
yourself, by trying your luck with the
swinging ball, the travelling marble or
fortune cards. It comes high some-
times, but they all must have it.
The signal service on the grounds
proved interesting to those who cared
to investigate the method of taking ob-
servations on the weather. Prof. Ball’s
fair weather flag caused much enjoy-
ment as it looked as though it would
like to crawl down the pole on Tuesday.
In the morning at nine o'clock a
meeting was held in the auditorium,un-
der the auspices of the women of the
State Grange. At 10 o’clock Hon. S.
R. Downing, of West Chester, and D.
C. Kennedy addressed the meeting.
The afternoon meeting was quite well
attended, The people had to havea
place to go and they all went to the
auditorium. Dr. H. P. Armsby, Di-
rector of the Penna. State College Ex-
periment Station was introduced and
had gotten well along with a very en-
tertaining talk, when a big storm came
up and threatened to demolish the tent.
Half of it blew down causing a panic
among the audience. The Doctor’s
speech was brought to an abrupt end
and everybody fled. The storm only
lasted for a few moments, however, and
things were straightway fixed up. Hon.
Giles D. Price, of Erie, was then intro-
duced to the frightened people, who
couldn’t sit still long enough to hear his
excellent talk on “money and curren-
In the evening a musicale and liter-
ary entertainment was given under the
direction of Miss Emma Brewer, of
Deleware county. This concluded a
dull though memorable day at the pic-
nic. All those who didn’t get wet got
mad and vowed that they would never
go to another picnic, but when next
year comes around they’ll be the first
fellows on the grounds. With all its
discomfits there's fun it too.
Contrary to expectations the third
day did not turn out a very large crowd.
The threatening weather had a bad
effect on the inclinations of those who
had perhaps intended going and though
it was Temperance day the blue ribbo n-
ed army of Centre county must have
concluded that water was all right when
taken internally, but entirely out of
place for external application. How-
ever it did not rain until evening and
those who did go; had a very pleasant
time. Occasional peeps of sunshine
added to the pleasure of the day for old
Sol. has been very chary with his rays
during the whole week. The Aarors-
burg band kept up a continual +‘toot,” the
fakirs did a land office business and the
“dago” with'the monkey had all the
girls on the grounds after him.
In the big auditorium the ladies held
sway during the morning, Their meet-
ings were well attended and quite enter-
taining. During the afternoon and
evening the Temperance people held
the boards. Rev. Zeigler is always on
hand with a lot of forcible speakers. If
the grangers were as good as he isat
carrying out advertised programs we are
certain that disappointments would not
be of such frequent occurrence. He had
‘Hon. H, T. Ames, of Williamsport, and
Rev. J. T. McCrory, of Pittsburg, both
of whom delivered most excellent talks
on the license question. These meetings,
though usually supposed to be dry,
proved as entertaining as any that
were held on the ground.
There was a general stampede for the
trains about six o'clock when a wind
squall came up and threatened the
camp with distruction. The crowd soon
thinned out, but only a little rain fell
and the evening in camp turned out to
be quite pleasant, notwithstanding the
cold, A pyrotechinic display, made at
Supt. Westfall’s tent, attracted many to
that quarter and the band concerts at
various parts of the grounds amused
True to the WATCHMAN’S prediction,
yestefday was the biggest day thus far.
Thousands of people packed the picnic
grounds. Every incoming train, from
early morning until noon, was packed
with people all eager to spend the day
away from home. The weather looked
very threatening in the morning, but by
eleven o'clock it cleared off nicely and
the day proved all that could possibly
have been expected. The crowds of
people, who thronged through the ave-
nues,the exhibition buildings, and down
past the ‘‘fakirs’’ stands, were merry and
contented as the day was long. There
must have been eight or ten thousand
people on the ground. Ti was indeed a
big day, though there was nothing more
for the people to do than to gorge them-
selves with peanuts and lemonade then
go and regret it on the merry-go-round.
The women were again supreme in
the auditorium, in the morning. Many
people went fo their meeting for want
of some place else to go. At 10 o'clock
Senator Brown, of York county, and |
Wm. Benninger, State Grange Deputy,
were the spokesmen. At 2o’clock Hon.
Mortimer Whitehead, National Grange
lecturer, Dr. Groff, of Bucknell Univer-
sity at Lewisburg, and Dr. Armsby, of
State College, entertained large crowds
of people wirh their instructive talks.
In the evening Miss Brewer entertained
the people with another of her delight-
fully arranged literary and musical en-
To-day the Veterans of the county
are having their annual reunion
and picnic. Ex-President Rutherford
B. Hayes and a number of other digni-
taries are supposed to be there.
Now that there remains but two more
days of this, the 19th annual picnic and
exhibition of the Grangers,we look back
over the four days that have passed and
ask ourselves what makes these gather-
ings assume the proportions that they do-
There is but one answer to our self put
question and that is,a natural desire for
an outing. When the 18th annual pic-
nic closed there was much complaint
made by visitors that those who had the
affair in charge had done nothing for
public comfort and many of the thous-
sands who were there last year were loud
in their professions that they would
never return® The same crowd has
been there this year, notwithstanding
the fact that little has been done to at-
tract, Thegrounds in themselves are
perfectly void of beauty ; there is not
an exhibit which one would care to go
out of his way to see; no amusements,
except one merry-go-round which
drives possible patrons away with a
wheezy organ that plays nothing but
Annie Rooney ; the auditorium is too
small for the crowds which would liketo
hear the few aavertised speakers who
get there; and to cap the climax the rail-
road company furnishes cars, for trans-
portation, which immigrants would not
ride in. Now this is a fair and unbias-
ed resume of the picnic yet we can-
not understand what attracts such
crowds day after day. ‘Tis true there
has been a very material falling off in
the attendance this year,but this we as-
cribe to the threatening weather rather
than to the fact that the managers, by
discrimination, high rates, and by offer -
ing no incentives for exhibitors, have
done everything in their power to lessen
ratker than;increase the interest.
Our good granger friends——for the
‘WATCHMAN is the best friend you have-
take our advice. Be more liberal next
year. Have good music, such as the
Milton band would make, Offer prizes
for exhibits. Encourage the legitimate
dealers of this and adjoining counties if
they desire to make display of their
wares, rect a large dancing pavillion,
and other such places of amusement.
Suppress the ‘‘fakirs’” and your picnic
will then assume the proportion and
degree of success you desire .to see it
meet with. Help amuse the people.
Nothing will be lost if your time and
money is expended on the ideas we sug-
gest. If a crowd is to beheld for a week
there must be something to attract it.

one is not killed at the Pardee lumber
operation, on the line of the L. & T, rail-

down an embankment.
——We sincerely hope that there will
not be any person from this section who
will go to Altoona to see the Forepaugh
shows. If Mr. McCaddon, the mana-
ger, don’t think enough of Bellefonte,
though it has packed his tents on sever-
al occasions, to bring the show here, then
Bellefonters are fools if they travel clear
to Altoona to see it.

Coyle’s best wishes, along with his own.
Geo. is attached to Mr. Coyle’s Commer-
cial hotel, which is said to be the lead.
ing house in Emporium, and likes his
new situation very much. His employ-
er is one of the best of landlords, which
accounts for his success, and a staunch
Democrat as well.
—— Mr. John Bechdel, formerly of
Liberty township, this county, but who
of late years has been engaged in busi-
ness at Manhatten, Kansag,jidied on
board the limited express coming east
on Tuesday last. In company with his
Fearon and wife,
‘and Mr. Jas. H. Lipton, he was return-
ing to his old home, in the hope that
the bracing air of the Alleghenies would
restore him to health, when stricken with
death while the train stopped in the de-
pot at Fort Wayne, Indiana. His re.
mains were brought on home and inter-
red in the family burying ground near
Beech Creek. :
A. J. Thompson, | Creek, cut the grass in the lawn in front
of his house and a young man living
with him gathered the grass and placed
it in a basket. He then picked up the
basket, but quickly dropped it on ac-
count of a sting on his finger from what
he supposed was a bee. Mr. Bittner, in
attempting to carry the basket, was also
stung on the leg. As it was about dusk’
neither knew exactly what caused the
trouble, but after getting a lantern they
discovered a good sized copperhead
snake, and they were not long in dis-
patching his snakeship.—ZLock Haven

Within the past three or four days the
colored population of Bellefonte has
been almost stampeded from fear of
cholera. Some one has evidently told
the darkies that the fell scourge was
imminent and that they would be es-
pecially susceptible to its germs, for
every drug store in the town reports
an unusual sale of camphor and asafeti-
da to colored buyers. The old spring
white wash bucket is being hauled “out
again and there is being such a clean-
ing up in colored quarters as has not
been made for years. A cholera scare
often might be good for the community.
——A beautiful line of ladies fall
coats in tan and other light shades and
black for $3.50 to $12.00. Lyon & Co.
IENCE.—This month the new postal
money orders will go into use. The
system is such that there is little or no
complication, and at the same time it is
a good way to send money. A sheet
calling for amounts from one cent to
$3.00 has been prepared, and which on
payment of one cent and the amount to
be sent, will be torn off about the same
as an express order. There will be no
writing on it by the post master, the
sender endorsing it as a check or draft.
The government guarantees its safe
transportation. It is thought that the
system will be used extensively by
senders of small amounts.
——Special, great big bargains in
bos suits at $1.25, $1.50, $2.00. Lyon
