the following complimentary no

towns of Pennsylvania will need to
look out for their laurels a few
seasons hence if the Wayne county
fair promoters continue to pro
gress." Something over 5,000 horses
have either died or been disabled
from the effects of the heat so far
this summer in New York City and
very near a like number in Chicago
and In consequence there is an al
most unprecedented demand for all
classes of horses, especially the
draft type and delivery chunks. At
this season with the excessive heat,
horse owners cannot be too careful
in using preventltive measures to
protect their animals from pros
tration. Unquestionably the loss of
thousands of these horses could have
been prevented by proper treat

AN OUTING SONG.
By S. S. Robinson.
We're tired of the noise and
In the city where business is rife,
With plenty of lunch,
We're out in a bunch,
Having tho time of our life;
Where the fields of ripening grain
Are kissed by the dew and the rain,
And the apples are red,
On tho boughs overhead,
By tho moss-covered wall In the lane.
We're out for a Jolly good time
On, life In the fields is sublime!
We'll revel In fun,
Till day light is done.
For we're out for a jolly good time.
The tables delightfully groan
With baskets of goodies from home,
There's no need to fast
As long as they last
And there's more in the cupboard at
How it brings back the old-fashion
When resting from Innocent plays,
We lunched on the grass,
As the moments would pass
Into hours of those beautiful days.
In the shade of the old orchard trees,
Where the meadow Is swept by the
What glorious fun
To walk or to run.
Or to do Just whatever you. please.
Each spot in our childhood we knew
When skies were delightfully blue,
"With fish-line and hook
We strolled by the brook.
Just to catch a speckled beauty or
Sing a song of rollicking glee.
As we. sang when careless and free,
we'll join in tho plays
As we did in school days.
For we're young as we used to be,
When we're out with the girls and
We always make plenty of noise,
We cannot resist,
The years seem a mist,
Since we played with our dollies and
