Irlll.'i In preparation for the annua

the time all day Saturday. Wo looked
Into the dining rooms of the sol
dlers ; the long narrow tables were
covered with white oil cloth , plates
cups , knives , fork OH and spoons were
In readiness for the noon meal. The
officoni meals were served In excel
lent .style. Kach tent contained two
narrow cots. The grounds present n
Sunday excursions were run from
Philadelphia and Intermediate- points
and the crowd that witnessed the.
dross parade at five o'clock In the
evening was estimated at 15,000. The
crowd was so great that It became
necessary to compel the people * tc
inovo back and allow sufficient space
for the soldiers to march.
I became separated from the rest
of our party , In the rush to for a bet
tor view , and found myself near tc
: i number of bloated , red nosed , red
faced , loud mouthed creatures , bear
Ing a faint resemblance to men , bill
* o utterly , absolutely dlsjustlng
that I left my place of vantage rathoi
than remain In thohi neighborhood
There were "fakers' " galore and
there were hundieds of automobiles o
ill makes , carriages , bungles and wa
gons In an endless stream all day
long , coming from far and near.
Monday morning bright and early
Governor Stuart and his staff arrlv
eel and the Governor's salute of sev
3nlocn guns were fired , waking us
from dreaming prophetic sleep. Right
after breakfast we went again to the
parade grounds , which Is unite a
walk , to see the Gov. and his staff
review and Inspect the 1st Brigade
Wo left at noon for York.
My trip would not bo complete
without a mention of my second visit
to Baltimore , Md. Both visits must
needs Ito exceptionally short. It was
HO many years since Irene was here
that though there was nothing do
Ing of a social nature , yet wo made
many delightful excursions to plac
es of amusements. There are so
many attractive spots In and around
the city and along the shore of the
bay , that It was no easy thing to select
lect a few out of the many , aa re
presentative ) of the different kinds
of summer entertainment.
Out of the thirty six houses of the
10th block on Entarv Place , only
four were e > ccupled , the rest were
either boarded up or the shades low
ered , tolling plainly of the flight ol
the occupants to some other abode
perhaps not comparable with the beau
ty of Entarv Place , with Its wide
beautiful park through the center
full of a great variety of trcew and
schruba , flowers and roses , largo and
small fountains , full of gold and sll
ver figh sporting about , regaidless ol
barricaded , tenantless homes.
Our first diversion , was a car ride
all over the city. To Rlvor View
where the young people took In most
of the attractions , all a glitter with
electric lights , to Bay Shore Park
where wo heard the Boston Ian La
dles' Orchestra In many stirring HO
lections. Wo sate > n the piazza of the
hotel and listened while wo ate. We
walked all the way out on the 1000
foot concrete plor and a short dls
tanco along the sea wall promenade
ono mile long , and listened to the
Hwlch , swlch of the sea along the
shoro. This trip was a rldo of thlr
ty-slx miles and It was quite into
when we reached homo. Thursday
afternoon wo took the trolley at 2:30 :
for Emory Grove , Wo passed Dried
Hill park , suburban and country horn
eg , for a distance of twenty miles
The entrance way to the Grove la
made of white stone. The hotel pi
azza was entliely denetted ; the la

Wo called on 1 Month of my ai.ilcr.
Urn tent. } and cottage * looked i ; <
cozy and comfortable and were adorn
i-d with hanging baskets of flower"
and polled plant * . Wo visited until
the gentlemen arrived. There wer ?

p.i'jfor of Mndlsoti Ave M. ! ! . < } huieli

a special dinner had been ordered foi
our putty , and inicli a warm , cordial

Introduced mo as from the "wild and
wolley west. " One gentleman , H
gray Chesterfield said , Well , If HIO ! Is
n product of ( ho West , she Is not un
like the East.
Kmory Giovo cam are always crowd
ed , HO It happened that ono day : i
passenger gasped to his neighbor
'Please give me a little space. "
'Don't apply to me , " was the
answer "read that advertising
card. " The man glanced up ami
read For space in this car apply
to Custer County Republican.
Our next trip of importance
was to Tolchester down the
Cheaspeake Bay. We left the
city at 2 o'clock , on the big ex
cursion boat called the "Louisa. "
A. row of small Hags decorated
the top of the pumping engine
on the upper deck. Pennants
were Hying from every available
place , a long narrow strip of red
and white was tossed by the
breeze , as it clung to the pole in
the prow of the boa ! .
Shortly afler leaving the pier
on looking back I saw uirtiiy thin
streams of pale grey , two heavy
thick columns , of black smoke
rising from innumerable smoke
stacks ami at places , hanging
over ihe city like a pall. One
can hardly imagine a finer view
tlicn we had that day on the
Kay. Then lee , the Hay and
surrounding country are so full
of historic interest. We passed
Fort McEIenry. Years ago
while attending the Balti
more Oriole , a spectacular affair
on the order of the Ak-Sar-Ben ,
I visited the Fort. We had a
listant Jview of the famous
Baltimore Yatch Club. For
quite a little distance out. found-
rys , smelters and factories line
the shore. Tugs , steamers and
sail boats crowd each other until
we are far out. Slowly the
woods and green fields far away
on either shore , recede from
view , until the western coast is
but a dark line along the horizon.
Then it is that you begin to feel
the facination of the shining1 ex
panse of blue water , with a cold
blue sky bending above it. Tel
chester is on a high blufl" and is
different in many ways from the
other resorts we visited. A
Baltimore Sunday Schcol was
having its annual outing that
day , besides all the other picnic
parties both large and small.
As I do not care in the least for
scenic railways of any kind ; tny
greatest pleasure was in watch
ing the sunlight on the water ,
turning it into a shimmering
expanse of shining gold , bejewcl-
ed with a thousand gems ; or
idly dreaming ; or watching the
bathers from the balcony of the
house overhanging the Bay.
On our return , the "Louisa"
was literally jammed with people.
In the saloon below ( here was
dancing and c.xcellant music , all
the way "back , back , back to
Baltimore" vhcre we lingered
a few days longer mjoying the
beauty of FJutarv Place and the
hospitality of the Buckingham * .
