AT FARMERS' PICNIC
Fine Time Had at Annual Outing
Three thousand people turned out
for the annual farmers picnic at
Woodward's grove, in the upper part
f the county, yesterday. The farm-
rs and their families made up. the
bulk of the crowd, but there were
many from the cities to join in the
elebration of the day.
Congressman B. F. Marsh accom
panied the Rock Island and Moline
picnickers, of whom there were about
fifty. They had engaged the steamer
tarnard to transport them to the
grounds, but just as the boat was
leaving the Moline harbor a break in
her machinery occurred, and the Park
Bluff was summoned. The. Park 1 'duff
was secured to tow the Barn si rd to
her destination, but a sand bar was
struck en route, and it was nearly 2
o'clock in the afternoon when the
party reached the grove.
The oration of the day was deliver
d by Rev. W. B. Shaw. and. Prof.
Olierlauder gave an acrobatic per
formance. Two exciting baseball
games toiiowcd, the I ordova ani
lackers cleaning up the Albany team
14 to 8 for a purse of $20, and the
Zuma Red Caps falling before the
Twin-City team 5 to 3. The purse
hung up for the winner of the latter
game was $2j.
The dinner served the picnickers
was the good, old-fashioned kind that
ne has to go to the country to get. yel
ow legged chicken, and plenty of it, be
ing an it,"$ni on the menu that particu-
arly appealed to the folks from town.
During the progress of the dinner the
band appropriately rendered "Home
Ain't Nothing Like This."
