On Wednesday morning of last week tho
Winona Fire Company mustering 21 men,
accompnnled 'jy tho Bloomshurg Cornet
Band with 20 members, went up to Pitts,
ton ns the guests of tho Eagle Hose Com
pany of that place, to attend a picnic at
Jones' Lake. On reaching Pittston Junc
tion the party was met by'n committee of
Eagle Hoso and escorted to the Hose'
House, where they were divided up Into'
four squads and assigned to their hotels.
Tho afternoon was spent by the visitors in
viewing the town and making acqualn.
tnnccs, and at six o'clock the parade of the
lire department took place. Tho proces
sion was led by the Bloomshurg Band and
the Winouns, tho Niagara Engine company
and Leek Band following, and Eagle Hoso
with tho Thistle Band last. It was a very
creditable parade and was witnessed by
crowds along the line of march. The uni
form of the Eagles Is red shirts, white
leather hats, and black nants. and that of
the Niagara Is similar to tho Winonas but
of blue. Of our company the Pittston Ga.
eltc says :
"Tho'Winona Hoso company paraded 24
men. 'llicy were dressed in neat gray
suits of coat and pants nnd white vests, and
white duck caps. They are a fine body of
manly men, and appeared to exceedingly
good advantage. They were tho subject of
flattering remarks along the entire routo of
tlio procession." After the parade the visi
tors were given a reception in tho elegant
ly furnished rooms of the Eagles, where n
welcoming speech wns mado by Col. K.
Campbell, which was responded to by Geo.
E. EI well. Refreshments wcro then served
and a couple of hours very pleasantly spent.
Late in tho evening tho Bloom band sere
naded Burgess Welsh, and a number of
other prominent citizcns,und then retired to
a hall vfhero they discoursed some of their
operatic selections. Their playing was
very highly complimented. They never

about CO miles from Pittston nnd is reached
by a gravity road, no locomotives or power
of any kind being used the whole dlstanco
except to make the ascent of 12 planes.
The cars run at a rapid rate, and tho sce
nery is grand beyond description.
At tho Lako there Is a picnic ground
wjth dunce platform, and tho day was
pleasantly spent in dancing, boating, and
other amusements, Quito n largo number
of Plttston's fuir damsels graced tho oc
casion with their prcsenco nnd thereby
added greatly to tho pleasure of the day.
The return trip was made lato In tho after

nins the centre for recreation and health
seekers. The coal of Bcrnlcc, tlio lumber
of Sullivan, tho iron nnd other minerals of
Northern Columbia would find a market
and constnnt demand at and through
Bloomshurg, and bo largely returned to
their places of deposit in money and sup.
piles. The bug-bear of damage, danger
and Inconvcnlcnco from proximity to a
railroad which used to frighten pcoplo into
ppositlon to tho construction, is no lonircr
formidahlo. A common public road brings
more annoyances. In settling and amine-
ing with a railroad company the right of way,
have tho survoy accurately made, thoground
staked off, the contract for crossings and
the places where they nro to bo located
ascertained and agreed to, and especially a
provision that tho railroad company must
make, keep and maintain tlio fences nlong
its line of road on both sides ; nnd you aro
quito securp from all special annoynn
ccs and dangers.
The tops of tho mountains are no longer
'deep solitudes." tho scream of the loco
motive "is over them all," und everything
becomes subservient to this advancing
civilization. No doubt the mining of coal,
and iron, the sinking otnumcrous oil wells,
tho tunneling for railroads, docs greatly ef
fect nnd reduce the water supply which
has theretofore come to the surfaco j and
tho cutting away of the forests has no
doubt interfered with the rainfall, and tho
ability of the denuded earth to retain mois
ture i but much of tho talk about destroy.
ing tho forests is mere buncombe. Thcro
comes u timo when a tree has arrived at tho
perfection of its growth and development,
where tlio bark Is at its best, tbo wood or
fiber tha.llrmest ; and then it begins to de
cay. At that point of perfection it should
be used, not left to waste and decay. The
smaller and Immature timber will soon
fill the open spaces. No doubt there Is of-
ten nn indiscriminate destruction which Is
reprehensible, bufl am of opinion that
mostly the owners will not kill tho goose
that lays tho goldan egg, but select and se
lect, and thus havo n continual growing
crop of valuable forest product.

How Watch Cases are Made.
A plate of solid oold 14 2-10 karaU
fine is soldered on each side of ft plate of
hard nickel composition metal, and the
thrco are then passed between polished
Etcel rollers. From this plate tho various
parts of the coses hacks, centers, bercls.ctc.
are cut and shaped by dies and formers.
The gold is thick enough to admit of all
kinds of chasing, engraving, and engine
turning. Tho composition metal gives it
needed ttrength, ttiffiieu and tolidUy, while
the urtHrn guarantee of the manufacturers
trarranh'nj each case to wear fircniy years
proves that it contains all the gold that
can possibly be needed. Thb guarantee
is given from actual retulti, as many of
these cases havo been worn perfectly smooth
