THE humbug hue and cry for Blaine
that the Cameron —Quay combination
started, a month before tho time for the
State Convention, over three months before
the election, and nearly a year ahead of
next National Convention, makes one
wonder what they will do next. They tell
a storv of a sailor who, while ashore,bought
a parrot, and then went to the theatre,
and the play interested him so intensly,
that after each act he would "wonder
what in h 1 they'd do next.'' By and
by there was a tremendous explosion, the
building was demolished, and nearly
everybody in it perished. The sailor was
killed, but the parrot was not, and as they
pulled its cage from among the debris, it
wondered "what in h —l they'd do next.
And so the spectators of the doings of Don
Cameron,and hit Ami damnee( friend damned
to him) Quay, as the French put it, can
well wonder -vhat will be their next move
towards obtaining control of the State
delegation to the next National Conven
tion, and the next State Legislature.

The Hemlock Worm.
It has generally been thought that heni

against the ravages of worms and borers,
it is now reported that alarm is spreading
in Potter county and throughout the great
strip of hemlock timber in Pennsylvania
over the ravages of* worm that is destroy,

It was only daring the past week that
it was noticed that the tops of the heavy
timber on the mountains were turning
brown, as though the trees were dying.
The trees looked exactly as though the

tigation proved that the trees were cover
ed with myraids of worms which were eat

the woody twig not being touch

PITTSBCRG, August 20, 1891.
"The world do move," an old saying,
but none the less true. The particular
Sortion of the foresaid sphere to which we
esire to call the attention of our readers
is Pittsburg and its grand Exposition,
which opens its doors for the third season
011 Wednesday evening, Sept. 2nd, for a
period of forty days, or to be more de
finite, closiug Oct. 17th.
The wondertul success which has attend
ed tbe efforts of its promoters in the past
two years is already well-known to the
people of this community, and has passed
into history as one of the most deserving,
at tbe same time one of the most successful
of public enterprises. Its management his
the flattering record to its credit of having
faithfully carried out its promises, as thous
ands of delighted visitors can abundantly
testify. The exposition has, in conse
quence, received the unqualified endorse
ment of every intelligent citizen of Western
Pennsylvania and adjoining States. The
gentlemen who have this important under
taking in charge are determined to do
everything in their power to make it more
attractive and valuable each year From
present indications they are on tbe right
track, and are bound to succeed. Xo ex
penses has been soared to provide the best
attractions possible for their patrons. The
famous Seventh Regiment Band of New
York, under the direction of the established
favorite, Col. Cappa, as leader, hss been
engaged for the entire season.. This is
the first time this magnificent musical or
ganization has ever visited Pittsburg, and
tbe Exposition management is to bo con
gratulated on being able to effect an en
gagement with such a representative body
Another attraction will be the Art De
partment, which will comprise a collection
of rarest and most costly gems from tho
studios of both America and foreign artist".
The loan collection of paintings tendered
the Exposition Society, through the courte
sy of many of the wealthy and public-spirit
ed men ol Pittsbuig and Allegheny, is un
questionable the finest collection of valu
able works of art ever shown in Pittsburg,
and has never been surpassed as a whole,
anywhere in thi» country.
The Exposition is booming, and this will
be the most prosperous year, and
everyone who can should certainly im
prove tbe opportunity to visit it before it

open, sincere, brave and honest. He was
a useful man all his life, serving his fellow
citizens with the greatest fidelity in many
places of trust. In 1800 he was elected
Clerk of the courts of the conntv, diucharg

tbe highest moral life. Most of his years
