B . ’ A TRIP TO HAGERSTOWN AND GETTYSBURG Mr. Editor:—lt may lei that some of yonr readers might like to hear of a trip taken by there of your humble citizen* to the F irmer*' National Con gress at Hagerstown; also to the tattle field of Gettysburg. One of the mem Iters of this trio belonged to the Slate Extension Service; the other two were delegates to the Farmers’ National Congress. Well, we started from Mechanics vilie at about Ip. m , Get. 28th, and arrived In Hagerstown about 10o'clock p m. We found all of the hotel* full, hut the people of this city opened their houses at a normal sum. in order the! the visitors might lie accommodated. Wc were quartered t 23* Potomac fit H igerstown ha a imputation of 30,000 Inhabitants The homes and street* are well built and kept, the citizens | wore genteel and thrifty looking and | seemed to l reads to extend the glad hand of weh-om - to u.- and all of the visitor* from lh- many parts of the counter. Oct. 20 c attended B meet ing of the Kerroei s’ National Congo ss which was held vt the Acs demy of Music Tile house was filled with agricultural and horticultural people from many parts of Che oounlry. After many selections of patriotic songs, led by a lady of exquisite voire and talent. In tin- -ingmg the entire audience mined. After this an address of welcome was delivered by one of Hagerstown's pc.auinenl speakers, which made us feel our visit would not be in vein. Following Otis our Gov ernor made a very fine address. There were others from dlff-reot states who made most excellent speech-**, these last making us hs-l we were brothers In common, who w -*•-• collected Imre to work out a better sy sum of agriculture that would be for itu- betterment of those who had ass-muled so as to have the views of other* on the subject The following night Ibc-e wes served an enple banquet of seven courses ell of apples, with the exception of one, and (hie one was ham and spinach. Of course there was plenty of bread. I had wundared how an; one could make a meal on apples <>my, but we did and enjoyed It, too. The apulcs were made up in so many different ways you could hardly tell you were making a meal on apples. I think all of the residents of our county ought to have an apple oreherd, for with the receipts for pre paring apples for food (bat were used at the above banquet, they could exist should they fall In other edibles. This banquet tasted about three hour*. At Intervals there was a double quartette of men who rendered some fine speci mens of music. Thera was much speech-making also. It was a dry banquet, sweet elder we* the prey ail ing drink. I teamed that this banquet was arranged and conducted by a young lady. The eitixens of Hagerstown had ar ranged that we were to siwnd the week In their elty, but several days of Ibis time was spent in slght-eseiog in other placet, among (hem a trip by rail to the battle field of Gettysburg. A* Ibis trip was not to be taken until Satur day, our party, not feeling like stay ing dial long, hired an automobile to make the trip to Gettysburg, and went tbit last way. We came and went by different routes. It was a long route, both going and coming The country being so mountainous, we bad to fol low the mountain passes, which mad* it a crooked route. Shortly after we left Hagereton, we saw, in die distance what looked to be clouds, but we found on drawing nearer, they were moun tains, covered with trees, (bat were taking on tbe autumn shades. The mountain* looked like huge bouquets of flowers, standing out In bold relief against the sky. To me this was just beautiful. Notwith standing, tbit was a mountainous country, plenty seemed to abound all along our route. The residents seem ed to have up-to-date bouses. After we crossed the Denney Ivania line, we found many of tbe houses constructed of huge logs; also tbe roads (here) to Gettysburg were poor. We arrived at die battlefields at about 12 M., found It a most picturesque sight, and kept most beautiful. It was about 10 square miles, covered with handsome monu ments and tablets, mucking the differ ent positions of the two armies when they were engaged In mortal combat. There was Bemioary Bridge, Grelps Hill, Little Round Top and Big Round Top. Having read the history of this battle, 1 wanted first to go to Crelps Hill, where Major Gen. £. Johnson's Division made (heir heroic charge. Brig. Gen. Geo. H. Stewart’s Brigade was attached to the above division, and tbe let Maryland Batalllon was attached to this Brigade. I saw Rook Creek. When the above men crossed 1 at the foot of Crelp's Hill thov climbed (bis steep and rocky cliff, drove (he enemy from their entrenchments and gained the (op of this hill. 'Twas here I found a monument that had . been erected the to Ist Maryland Ba , talllon. It marked their slopping . place. ’Twas here our Maryland boys > did such heroic flgating and paid their , last call. It was some wbere on this hill my brother fell and laid in bis blood from the a. m. of July 3 until I (he next day before be was removed , from the field of battle. Just to think, i (bis has been over 56 year* ago 1 . Some of tite trees on tills hilt show the effects of the terrible carnage. I Standing on Mils hill and looking , over (bis now peaceful battle ground, - could not but feci tad oyer (be loss of so many good aed useful men, whose ... ■ ■ - 'i. ■■ sacrifloe might have'.been avoided. I hope this lesson of civil war will teach I onr nation the foil; of letting the like’ oeour again. I am afraid, Ur. Editor, 1 hare made my story too long, hut More concluding I want to say something in behalf of my traveling companions. They were nine men to travel with, were fall of unselfishness, always ready to do that wbleh would brine most pleasure to their eompsßtlone. I hope we can take the trip nest year to the State of Ohio, where the nest eon rentton will be held. —H. Value ef Wrestling.
