A Success.
Patton Fire company’s dance and
picnic at their park east of town on
Labor Day was a grand success in every
particular. A large number was pres-
ent. The orchestra, which was led by
Prof. Howard Maitland, of Gallitzin,
was, beyond a doubt, the finest that
has ever made music in this part of the
county. The fire boys have gained the
reputation of showing their guests a
good time, and still keep it up.
