George T. Bush Winds Up His Trip at
Toronto Fair.
Toronto, Can., August 31.
Editor of the “Watchman:”
On leaving Detroit, Mich., I went to
Mt. Ciemens, twenty miles distant,
where I spent several days. Mt. Clem-
ens is the “city of baths,” the resort
for people afflicted with rheumatism
and blood disorders. To test the effi-
cacy of the baths. I tried them and
must admit that they have an exhil-
arating effect. Baths can be had in
most of the large hotels, although
there are regular public bath houses
where one can take a dip for a dollar
with rubs fifty cents additional. The
water for the baths is pumped from
wells 1100 feet deep. It comes out of
the ground almost the color of ink and
is heavily laden with various medicin-
al salts. It has an odor of hydrogen
sulphide, but is really better than it
Thirty years ago I visited Detroit
on a football trip and our game was
played on the athletic club grounds,
which were then at the edge of the
city limits. Today the city extends
four miles beyond where the field was
located at that time. Present day res-
idents claim a population of one mil-
lion. One of the biggest and most
marvelous industries is the Ford Mo-
tor company plant. Its size is enor-
mous and at present there are 46,000
employees. In fact there are so many
that they have a pay day every work-
ing day in the month. I visited the
factory and was impressed with the
system everywhere. Workmen do not
leave their places at lunch hour but
are served from lunch wagons wheeled
to them. The best of food is served
at cost.
Extensive machinery changes are
now being made to turn out the new
models Ford cars, which will be so en-
tirely different from the old designs
that much new equipment will be
From Detroit I went by boat
through Lake Erie to Buffalo, a fif-
teen hour trip. The lake was very
rough at night and many of the pas-
sengers had a slight attack of sea-
sickness. The most impressive thing
at Niagara Falls is the night illumin-
ation of the falls and rapids. Leaving
the Falls I took the gorge route down
to Lewiston, crossing the lake to
Toronto, Canada. Before landing on
Canadian soil customs officials give
the traveler the “once over” and com-
ing back U. S. officials perform that
rite before the traveler sets foot on
land. A close watch is kept for smug-
gled booze, but the officials also keep
their eyes peeled for anything dutia-
ble. In Toronto liquor can be obtain-
ed only over the prescription counter,
but 4.4 beer and ale is sold indiserim-
inately. They, however, do not seem
to satisfy and it will not be surprising
if, at the next opportunity, the Prov-
ince of Ontario votes wet. Five years
ago the drys had a majority of 300,-
000, while last fall a scant 38,000 lined
up against liquor. Toronto, as a city,
is strongly wet.
The Canadian national exposition,
at Toronto, was my objective. It is
held two weeks. beginning the second
Saturday before Labor day. The fair
is owned and run by the city and is
managed by a committee of citizens.
It represents an investment of elevei
million dollars and a large portion of
the profits every year is put into per-
manent equipment. The admission
price is moderate, 25 cents, or five
tickets for $1.00, including grand-
stand. The Midway is unusually large
and I was surprised to see Johnny
Jones, of DuBois, holding the carnival
Auto races and auto push ball are
held on a good half-mile dirt track,
furnishing splendid sport for the large
crowds in attendance. Saturday was
the opening day and 85,000 people
went through the turnstiles. This
immense crowd was handled without
any noticeable congestion or undue
An immense pageant, “The Tie That
Binds,” is given every night. It de-
picts the progress of the British em-
pire, but more particularly the part
relating to Canada. The entire ex-
position is well worth seeing.
Expect to reach Bellefonte next
week. On my trip I have covered al-
most fifteen thousand miles by rail-
road, boat and auto. Have been in
twenty-six States, from Mexico al-
most to the Arctic Circle, and more
than ever am I convinced that we as
a people should see America first.
Mrs. Madge Shannon Roak, of near
Philadelphia, spent Tuesday with
friends in Centre Hall.
Rev. and Mrs. Moody and daughter
Miriam, of Dillsburg, visited at the
home of Mrs. Moody’s brother, John

picnic several days during the week.

Camden, N. J., who are making a mo-
tor tour of our beautiful State, attend-
ed the picnic for several days, where
they were heartily greeted by scores
of Clay’s former friends.
A recent visitor in our town was
Rev. G. W. Mcllnay, of Gordon, Pa.,
who assisted at the marriage ceremo-
ny of Miss Edna Bailey. Rev. Mcll-
nay served the Methodist congrega-
tions of Pennsvalley charge about
twenty years ago.

dren, of Steubenville, Ohio, were mo-
tor guests of the former’s mother,

On Saturday afternoon, Mrs. George
Robertson and Mr. and Mrs. J. H.
Boone and daughter, Miss Alice, and

ford, Conn., left home in two cars and
