Perfect Order Prevails Throughout Anthracite Region. Philadelphia , Oct. 9. The entire National Guard of Pennsylvania la encamped - camped In the anthracite coal regions , the last regiment from the western part of the state having arrived late yesterday afternoon. Contrary to expectation , the troops were well received and there was no Imposition on the part of the strikers to annoy the soldiers.

Universal quiet reigns throughout the entire region. Briga dier General Schall , at Tamaqua , tele graphed to Major General Miller thai there was no disturbance of any klm ! In the district. The soldiers who ar rived yesterday were all scattered throughout Schuylklll , Luzerne , Car ton and Northumberland counties. The fact that all of the locals throughout the anthracite region have voted unanimously to continue the Btrlko would Indicate that the presence enco of the troops will have but little effect upon forcing the men to return to work , and from present Indications it would seem that the settlement o the strike is no nearer a solution than It has been for many weeks.

Twenty-five Thousand in Line at Washington. REVIEWED BY THE PRESIDENT Roosevelt Driven Along Column of Veterans Amid Cheers Kansas and Iowa Contingents Carry Umbrellas and Earo of Corn. Washington , Oct. 0. For moro than six hours yusterdity the people in Washington hummed the chorus of the civil war song , "Tramp , Tramp , Tramp , the Doys Are Marching , " and for un uquiil time the vutcraus con stituting the Grand Army of the Republic - public made good thu claim. The pa rade was the climax of the thlrty-ulxth encampment of tholr order. The oc casion was In ov ry way worthy of the Grand Army , and the parade did not fall appropriately to delineate tne spirit of the war and the memory of the glorious achlevumentB the army seeks to keep green In the minds of the American people. Beginning at a few minutes past 10 o'clock , when the head of the column moved from its station at the capital , It was almost 5 o'clock when the last squad In the line had passed the place of dlsbaudment west of the white house. None of the soldiers were marching any great part of the time , for the entire , line of march did not exceed two and a half mlles In Icngtn , but those who composed the rear de tachments were on their feet practlc- ally aill day , much of the time being consumed In waiting to take their places In the lino. Route of Parade. The route of the parade was down historic Pennsylvania avenue , along which many of them marched as raw recruits In going to the war in 1861 and 18G2 and many others on the occa sion of the grand review after the close of thwar in 1865. The partic ipants In the Imposing pageant en tered with life -and vigor into the spirit of the occasion. Each counte nance bore ovldcnco of the joy the experience brought to the individual , but it wan plainly evident that there was in the occasion much of the res toration of youth for most of them. The "old boys" evidently wore liv ing the days of their youth. Not many1 of them exhibited traces of ago in their marching. Almost without exception they walked along with alacrity and kept stop with precision. If the veterans had needed any spur to tholr enjoyment they would have found It easily in the crowds who thronged tholr pathway and In the smile which provldonco bestowed upon them , for the weather was par- feet. The spectators were limited In Tiiirvtlmt ti rtrtli * l\ s fViA stnTitlfiltv r\f t Vl O UlttllUUl a UUJJ wj nvi * /tv < i vj w * .

The crowd was enthusiastic and out spoken In admiration , greeting every division of the procession with cheers and dismissing It with a "God speed' that had in It both praise and feeling The president of the United States also lent his energies to the enter talnmeat of thecapital's guests. Una be ) to endure the strain of reviewing the column from a stand , he rose from his reclining chair and had hlmsel driven up and down the line. The unusual Interest thus manifested was appreciated by the old soldiers and the president was everywhere re ceived by them with loud applause. Moro than five hours' time was con sumed by the procession in passing the reviewing stand in front of the white house. There were at least 25 , 000 men in line and the estimate o Commandor-ln-Chief Torrance ran as high as 30,000. Every Kansan in the parade , ana there were several hundred of them there , carried an umbrella painted on the outsldo to represent a huge sun flower. This probably was the mos unique display made by any state though It was only little moro so than that of Iowa , whose members one ! carried a big ear of native corn on the side , where formerly canteens were borne , these ears being suspended from bright , broad , new yellow rib bons. They passed the reviewing stand shouting ; In unison "Hurrah Hurrah , for Corn and Hay , Wo Are the Boys from loway. " South Dakota. ' Eons carried long sticks bearing on the point long ears of corn.

The gnmest of salt water fish , after the striped bnss , is the wenkflsli , or sea trout. The sport of angling for them is generally enhanced because , feeding ns they generally do near the surface , it is possible to fish for them with light tackle. The best places to find them in the vicinity of New York are Ja maica bay , the southwestern shore of Stntcn Island and the mouth of the Shrewsbury river. While they have been caught weighing upward of twen ty pounds , n six or ten pounder is a good size , and the average will only run from one to two and u half. There Is never jany doubt when n weakflsh bites. He does not nibble around the book , but takes the bait at one fair swoop and then starts off with it llko a limited , express with time to make up. Ho is a shy fish , and the man who uses a small line , light leaders and snclls to his hook and keeps quiet while fishing is the one who is apt to have the best luck. Country Life In America.
