Asprcviously annotincetl in these
columns the 20th annual Excursion
of the Pennsylvania Editorial Asso
ciation was destined for Philadelphia
and Atlantic City. The local con
tingent was made up of Dr. J. W.
Orwig and wife, John Kreegcr, Miss
Libbie Pinikleliergcr and tlie Editor
of the Post and wife. Mrs. II. II.
Hartcr of Northumlierland joined
the party at Selinsgrove Junction.
Leaving Middlcburg Monday, June
27th at 8:40 our party was safely
landfid in Philadelphia at 3 P. M.
and domiciled at the Windsor Hotel.
The first entertainment took place in
the Bourse from 8 to 10 P.M. when
and where the Philadelphia business
men had provided an excellent en
tertainment by a magician andscrv
, cda luncheon. ThwlnMiig completed
the entire party of over 200 guests
were invited to the Pen and Pencil
Club on Walnut Street, where they
showed the Editors how to sjiend a
"Night in Pohemia." The club is
made up of the most active newspa
per r.i.'ii in Philadelphia.
Tuesday was sKiit in a go-as-you-please
way many of the party
visiting the Philadelphia Museum
n South Fourth Street, the IWc
Art ( Jallerv at fihnhel's and clsc
'vhere on shnji:ntrcxpcditins. The
Pennsylvania Uiilroad Company, at
.'!:! 0, had a special train in readi
ness at Itroad Street Station to take
our party to Atlantic City. This
cnterprisinir corporation now has a
double track all the way to the sea
reducing the probability of accidents
to a minimum. The lied of the track
has lieen oiled in order to avoid
dust horn rising into the car win
dows and mar the pleasure of sum
mer travel. At Atlantic City the
headijuarters of almost the entire
party was at the Grand Atlantic Ho
tel, tinder the skillful management
of Charles E. Cope. The rain pre
vented any sight-seeing on Tuesday
evening, but Wednesday owned
bright and fair. The morning was
spent in visiting Young's Pier where
among the leading attractions is the
young lady diving into the ocean
from the elevation of 00 feet, the
raising of a seine with 12 to 15 ton
offish and the trained lions. The
afternoon was devoted to a yacht ride
upon the ocean which then was too
calm to make it pleasant and having
liecn caught in the ebbing tide, we
had to get ashore by means of a row
boat. In the evening n brilliant ar
ray of musical talent entertained our
party at the hotel. Thursday was
destined for us to lie the most de
lightful of the week. The miu was
scorching hot in the city but on the
beach it was cool. A plang into
the surf was next on the pramni,
The pleasure of this part of oor trip
can only lie attested by the thous
ands who every day are afforded the
opportunity of having an exhiliating
Ixith that drives dull cares away. In
the afternoon we took the street cars
for Long)ort, then boarded a Steam
boat for Ocean City, another resort
rising into prominence, returning to
the hotel at 6 P. M. The evening
was spent on the board walk where
thousands parade lek and forth on
the busy thoroughfare and upon the
stl pier where dancing was the
chief pass-tune of the cveuing. We
a . . 1 1 "a?
were loth to leave sucn luviung
breez-es and the thought of returning
to Philadelphia where a different
temperature existed was not to our
liking, but duty prevailed. We re
turned to Philadelphia Friday
morning and immediately went to
the Mlogical garden where all the
different specimens of the animal
kininlomcan be seen and appreciated,
but the extreme heat made sight
seeing extremely unpleasant. Dur
ing the afternoon our party was
somewhat scattered, some going shop

the Revolutionary War. lie was
shown and invited into the famous
Chew Mansion still standing where
the hottest part of that famous bat

The heat of the evening was in

seemed to be a visit to AVillow Grove
Park, the pleasure-mecca of Phila
delphia. The ride affo'tled a wel

opened to our gaze the great pleasure

about The electrical fountain is a
