Marshmellows on the ends of- long pointed sticks wore roasted In the flro. An Impromptu program of "stunts" dauscd no end ol 'merriment. Refreshments were served ed and the party broke up with a cnko walk. The day of our arrival witnessed the last dress parade of the 3rd I3rl Kftdo of State Militia and the break Ing of camp. Just ouo week later wo have the pleasure of witnessing the opening of the cainp of the 1st Brl gade , under the command of Gen llowman.

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 neat appearance. 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 dlo.'i won * i Ither onjoylnw Mielr aftei noi.i nit-mi or die i lii ; ; for dl'inor. 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 ? .oven in our party , Including Dr Swift p.i'jfor of Mndlsoti Ave M. ! ! . < } huieli Wo again wont to the * hotel , when a special dinner had been ordered foi our putty , and inicli a warm , cordial wolfinn" as the nuchlngliain'i ) m-nh ed , wan moat flattering. My nistei 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 * .
