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 D m somewhat scattered, some going shop pine while the writer visited Ger montown, the historic battlefield of the Revolutionary War. lie was shown and invited into the famous Chew Mansion still standing where the hottest part of that famous bat tle was fought. 1 lie bouse at mat time was the headquarters for the British officers and hence was a cov etl citadel and after a loiiir and bitter struggle the colonists obtained ml t II . . I J possession, Hie ouuei marKS ami other evidences of a fierce struggle are still aptiarent. The building has remained in the Chew family ever since and is now occupied by the descendants of the family of co lonial times. The heat of the evening was in tense and the only avenue of escape seemed to be a visit to AVillow Grove Park, the pleasure-mecca of Phila delphia. The ride affo'tled a wel come change in temperature and opened to our gaze the great pleasure resort so much written and talked about The electrical fountain is a phenomen rarely beheld ; the music of the Marine band of Chicago is enchanting ; the frizzing soda foun tain is inviting ; the Shoot the Chutes, the Mystic Maize, the Scenic Rail way and a hundred and other things afford abundant pleasure for the vis itor. Saturday morning at 8:30 we started for home arriving here at 3:07. The association will long remem ber the twenty-sixth annual excur sion to the seaside and Philadelphia. r or courtesies extended in Philadel phia we arc indebted to the propri etors of Hotels Walton and Wind sor, the president and manager of the Bourse, the director and manag ers of the Commercial Museum, the trade cominitte and Hotel Walton for the grand luncheon, and McKel lar, Smith & Jordan, tyN' founders. In Atlantic City we are indebted to Mr. Young, roprietor of the Young's pier ; the proprietors ofthc Atlantic City steel pier, the proprietors of the various hotels, the musical party and others. The editor of the Post thanks the managers of the Penn sylvania Railway for the courtesies extended to him and others of the V''"'iy' - Private Postal Cards.

Will the Editor of the Post please answer in his paper and tell us the numl)cr of stars on a correct U. S. flag, also the names of the remaining territories? IxyuiKKK. 1 There arc now 45 states in the National Union and hence a correct flag must have 45 stars, one star for each state. Utah was the last State admitted. 2 The regular territories of the United States are Oklahoma, Arizona New Mexico, Alaska and Indian territory. To this should lie added theterritory of Hawaii justunncxed. Then the war will probably bring such as the Philipiues, Porto Rico and Cuba, depending upon the treaty of jRtice.
