On looking at their watches they saw that
it was eight o'clock; the time proposed for
starting, and with all possible haste they com
menced to get ready for the day's enjoyment.
• The proposed route was to visit the Poor
House in the morning, awl spend the res t of
the day at the Lake, but as it was late when
they' started, they thonnght it host to pro
ceed diricily to the Lake and visit that on
the return trip. They . arrived at the Lake
abontil o'clock,. and found a nice_ little com
pany there who looked vary much surprised
at seeing them. but welconied them in a
oheerful manner. After a good dinner they
securrid boats and were soon gliding over
•the beautiful little Lake, occasionally finding
a lovely Illy blossom, or gomething new and
wonderful among the variety of aquatic
plants, around• the edge of the Lake. Un
mistakable signs of a shower beian to show
themselves, and they were compelled to re
turn to laird, where they arrived just in time,
though in rather Ungraceful haste, to gain
the • shelter of the •'plc-nio house" where
they spent an hOnr in social conversstiond
singing, keeping time to the. Pleasant patter

too late to gain admission, they must away,
they bade the rest a reluctant "Good Bye,"
and prepared for their return. After a pleas
ant ride of half an hour they reached the
building and were kindly escorted through
the' the rooms, and shown the admirable
manner in which it is kept, by Mr. Ferguson,
the'gentlemaniy Superintendent. They felt
much pity and synipathy for some of the poor
unfortunates, but also felt very t'glad that
they were receiving such good care and at
tention; and that everything was being done
as much as possible to make this substituted
home as near the reality as possible.

A x OPEN LETTER. .
J. W. Irvine, Liberty artier; Bradford
qa. Pa,—Counly Agin! for the Syracuse
CM ted Plow:
Sra—Though personally not acquainted, I
recognize in you a.competitor in trade in the
sale of Chilled Plows. Yon represent the
"Syracuse,"'l the."Wiard." I have been sell
ing the latter for Ave years, and, conscien
tiously, have represented it to farmers "as
the best Chilled Piet, in the market," and so
believe it to be to-day. If I am wrong in this,
I am ready to be convinced to the - contrary.
The Syracuse Chilled Plow was first exhib
ited at our Bradford County Agricultural Fair
in 1878. Four times has It taken the Diploma
over the Wiard at our County Fairs; but with-
out a single test trial. These diplomas were
granted, I think, because of en perior "dip/o
macy" upon the part of the exhibit Ors. 'Four
times in succession the Wiud Plow has had
to take a back seat at our last four annual
feint; yet I have had good reasons to believe.
that the Wiard was a much superior_plow.
At our late fair I thought that it was high
time that the Ellacusit and other Chilled
plows i ehonld demonatrate their claims to
superiority by actual and fair working trials
In the field in , a variety of soils and under the
varioturconditions that our farmers meet with
continually. Therefore I appealed frdm the
decision of the judges and demanded 'a fair
field trial at the hands of the Bradford County
This was granted, and the trial set to take
place upon the farm of . 0. H. Fox, in Towan
da toniship, on Friday, Oct. 21st, at 1 o'clock
p, at., and, if necessary, upon other lands in
that vicinity; so as to obtain.the desired vari.
eties of ground to plough.
You have 'claimed, I am informed; that the
Syractise Chilled Plow was si chilled steel plow,
and so entered it at Our fair. I ask of you
that you make this cialm good at our trial by
actual demonstratian; or, acknowledge that
you have been mistaken. I claim that the
Syracuse Chilled Plow mold board; practically
is not steel in any sense; and 'calling it a steel
plow by the manufacturers is intended to de=
ceive the farmer. Please come to the trial
prepared to do your best. Bring extra plows,
or mold boards, and I will give you $5O if you
can show, by actual working under the black?
„ smith's hammer, that the SpracusePlow mold
board.is steel, or, that it has any steel in it.
The Oliver and other chilled plows are, also,
invited to take part in said test trial. .
All compotierplows should be entered•for
trial at the &crate:ea office in Towanda, on
or before the 20th day of October.

I bin a livin! here in this world lung enough
to o' found out that 'ere truth afore to-day.
I left the town of It—e, by stage for to

Well, then we got In the Erie keere, and after

round, dearie me, yor other a seen as a goin'
why I had jest to keep a holdire. cooler the

was a rale tormention, sort of a man what
kept a wantin' to see the bit o' 'paper they
gin my friends when they fast started, as if
wont soda' it, and knowin they'd paid a big
lot o', money fer it, toe, wasn't enough to
satisfy ennybody with si . speck o'- gumption
abont 'em. Well, by and by, while , we was a
goin' like mad, the big iron thing what pulled
us along gin sich a oriel, outlandish screech
I jumped clear out of my seat v and tumbled
right in to the arms of a great big, ugly old

mumbled suthin about a girl never boin able
to keep themselfs still, now a days, I scram
bled round a bit ekeered out of party nigh all
my senses, till I got back into my seat again.
The next thing I did was to look round for
my Mends. flakes a massy; they wasn't
nowhere, and I sot up an orful screech, thin k
in as how they'd got blowed up. All the
people beginned to look to see what was
ailieme rtold them my friends were a leav'-

to do next, twsn't long, howeomever, afore
we all got settled Inoue places just as we was

. big houses, trees and crooked fences a gittin'
up and comin' along with us;. peered to me
someh me they went along jist as
fast as the keers theirselves. tlt was the fast
time in all my hall life that I ever saw the
like o' that. We went
.a tearin' along over
so.no etch awful aleery-looking places some
times, ana wnen i saw 'am art'er we'a went
by, my sakesl but wasn't 4 feeling upset?
but on we went at a s'prisin' rate, and all to
onct we pored to ran rightinto the middle of
the night, It's a rale fact. Mr: Editor, and
all yer good natured people, that-'it got as
dark all in a minit as the inside of yer brigest
pocket, and we - cot:aril one of us see the first
:thing. I felt round and ' , ketched a holt o'
somethin', andl a bold'in on as tight is ever
I could and feeling mighty queer, bat tryin
to keep still, coaxing my kerridge up at the
same time, 'Twantoncire'ut e few mints, how
somever4 afore we rode out v into daytime
ag'in, and there was the sun a shin'in, away
jist as if nothin' Wit happcded at all. I looked
around as soon as I'd , got done Winkle at the
sunshine and bless me, whet do you. think;
why I was, a holdin' onto 'ionic one:s gold
watch. It didn't take me long to let , go of it,
you may be sure, somebody gild we'd bin a
going through a funnel. Who'ever heard tel
of a keen goin' through a funnel, what's made
to pour lasses .and vinegaV and etch things ,
through; nonsense, one old man settin clod
by asked me if I "thought I'd got to China
seein' as how it's night there when it's day
time here." We got back'again' mighty sad
den, thene-eaid I and then he laded and tuck
to readin'of his book.
Well, all things has to fetch up to an end
some time or other, and by and by the keers
run themselves into a grande, long ibilding, I
sod to my friends is that-all the farther we're
a gel", we haint been much more'n half a
day ecrunmin"twant worth payin so much
money for. Fact if of I'd knowed New York
walla% only half a day's lourney, I think' I'd
feud as lief have hitched up my black poney,
and drivin myself in. •
Well, the next thing was to git out of the
keers cross , the ferry ;and hunt up a bordin
place, bein' ga i n was a gittin' party welt on
towards nice. My friends laid they rather
feared we couldnt find our cousins, nor any of
the folks what .we knewed, quite as handy
after lamplight is if we waited till mornin';
and so we precluded the beet thing we could
do under the consisting circumstances was
to go to some boardinthouse, where folks can
stay even if they are strangers, providiu' they
pay for what they gii. •
By and by the, boat reached the New York
City warfe, and there was the same shovin'
and punkin, and squeezing, there alters is on
slob ockashions. We got into a kirrige, and
was - dryly to Earls hotel on the corner of
Canall and Centre street, I told my friends I
did not know how ta'put on stile and' my
Mods Wiled me when:ll didn'tlnow nothin' I
musn't let anybody know but what I know all
about it. ,They Bayed that I most make the
world beleeve I am person of considerable
konsequence„ and that is all I will have to do.
If yer don't know jist st first what folkes is
talkin about, or what's what, jist keep still,
use yen eyes and ears, and you'll find out a
heap in a very , little while, only be very keer
fal, and dont dispose your own ignorance. I
thought that was puity good device, and dis
solved to take it and act on it to the best of
my debility. I was ready too, for anything
what would help me to git a foothold in this
'ere fashonable world what I am trying so
desprit hard to lot the hang of, and so, but
oh t dearienie, I'm gittin' rale navies like,
writii' so long. Please wale for the rest
'till next time. Respectabley,
