The Pennsylvania College started ont Monday evening with its share of the week's proceedings in the grad uation of a hevy of bright, attractive girls; the Pittsburg College, through a scries of contests and class day exercises held on va rious evenings, led np to its graduation Thursday nigh t and foil owed Friday evening with a very enjoyable banquet and reunion to the alumnsc. Prof. King's school of elocution contest Thursday evening was one of the most nota ble events of tho week, and attracted to this city elocutionists from all over the State and neighboring States as well. Seventeen young ladies contested for the D. B. King medal, each with a fair show of being suc cessful, which naturally made the pro gramme very interesting and the contest rather exciting. A Costume of Cheesecloth. The costumes of the contestants added considerably to the enjoyment of the even ing, for without exception they were exquisite and appropriate to the se lections civen. .And strange as it may seem the most beautifully artistic gown of all w as fashioned of cheese cloth.

The prize was given to Miss Mary Byron, and her pleasure at receiving it was only marred bv the sympathy he pit for the other girls who so beautifully swallowed their own disappointment and tendered their congratulations. What an admirable subject for moralizing medal giving would be anyway, for where it gives pleasure to one itches sorrow and discouragement to so many. Social Events of tho TVcck. Brides have been rather numerous this week and promise to be more so the coming week. The most fashionable wedding was tho O'Shea-Morgan at 12 o'clock Thursday in Trinity Episcopal Church. The "supplementary" concert ca ie off Friday evening, and was not an enthusiastic affair; indeed, everyone but tho little boys who occupied a box looked rather bored the ushers dreadfully to but then they vare inclined to uo more oraameniai man useful, and consequently suffered the en ui of idleness. A large portion of the audience departed after the fancy dance by tho little folks, thereby depressing still more the al ready depressed atmosphere, which made it difficult lor tho singers to do themselves Justice. Pleasures for the Stay-atHomes. Xcarly everyone is just at present in the transitory or packing state preparatory to the summer exodus, but for those that are compelled by circumstances to remain in the city during the heated term, and are de- J nicd tho saltwater and mountain air, cer tain outings exist that are not to be laughed at. The traction a id electric lines in a very few minutes will transplant one from stifling heat to the coolness and greenness of coun trv verdure and hilltop breezes. then the river will bo a great source of pleasure through the Tuesday night excur sions inaugurated by Mr. George Jenks that permit of a hitherto questionable evening of enjoyment.

All along tho coast line of tho East, on the shady hills, and beside picturesque lakes and broad rivers, mine host has opened his'reg isterand smilingly awaits tho guest who will fill his house and his pocket. Soon the excursion train will be hauling tired hun dreds over the Jersey levels and up the heavy mountain grades, and the cities will be turned over to the 6tay-at-homes. But very many are enabled by the cheap rates and frequent runs to take at least a dash in tho breakers or a siesta on tho hills, return ing dusty but refreshed, thankful for a whiff of salt air or a sniff of the balsam. The season promises to be a prolific one, thanks to the prosperity of the nation and tho craving for change. Everywhere fresh amusements and attractions, new hotels and refitted old favorites await the visitor. In a few days the season will bo fairly inaug urated. What awaits, the summer tourist at some of the favored spots can be gleaned from the news appended. ATTRACTIONS AT ATLANTIC. New Ones Will "Welcome Plttsburgers Gossip From the Gay Beach City. tSrECIAI, TELEGRAM TO THE MSPATCH.J Atlaktio Crrr, Juno 13. The seashore hotel proprietor who stops you on the ave nue to gravely declare that the season Just opened is going to bo the greatest in the his tory of Atlantic City is not so overly enthu siastic in his predictions that they will fall far short of tho mark. The season will be a big one, and to send out a letter from this resort Just now without calling attentl -n to that fact would not be doing justice to the existing situation. Atlantic City by means of unexcelled nat ural advantages and enterprise has forced recognition as the greatest seashore resort In the world, and in support of Hits claim no better proof is needed than the fact that its patrons come not alone from the principal cities in the United States, but also from that historic region bounded by the time honored phrase, "from every quarter of the globe." There was a time when the place depended entire!-upon the support of visitors from Philadelphia, but now the registers at the leading hotels have the variegated char acteristics of a polyglot dictionary. From Pittsburg, in "particular, Is attracted a vol ume of patronage sufficiently large in itself to sustain an average watering place, and that tho armv of visitors from that com paratively far-off city shows ah annual ln creaso is cheering to the hotel keepers. For the Pittsburg guest is doubly welcome here: ho comes to have a good time and is willing to pay liberally for it. Therefore, the affix Pittsburg to his name on tho regis ter secures him a room on the ocean front, which is the greatest distinction that can be conferred by an Atlantic City hotel keeper. Visitors from Pittsburg will find on their arrival here this year that time has worked several 'material changes in tho aspect of their favorite resort. New Hotels and Brighter Old Ones. New hotels have sprung up and the older ones have put on a new dressy and many Improvements added for the more com fortable accommodation of their guests. The scene In the vicinity of the Inlet has been practically transformed, and it will not be surprising to find that neighborhood the leading attraction of the island this summer. The marshy meadows surrounding tho Inlet are now occupied by handsomo structures, designed primarily for tho amusement of visitors and incidentally for the corralling- or tpe nimDie nicsei. xne grounds of the new Atlantic City Amuse-' ment company cover a largo area aaacent to the Ball Jark, and while no definite de tailed programme ha3 been given out, it is probable that within the fences will bo lound almost every known device for divert ing seashore solourners. The work is rapidly ncaring completion and in a short time the place will be in full blast. A few blocks farther down the boardwalk is located the nearly completed structure of the Atlantic Casino and Steamboat Com pany, a handsome building in tho Moorish stylo of architecture. Tho Casino is situ ated directly on the landlngor tho pier from which tho company's splendidly fitted yachts roako their ocean excusions, and fe a beautiful addition to tho surroundings of the inlet Still further down, where the beach takes a sudden bend, is the famous iron pier, shattered during the great storm of September, 1SS9, which mado kindling wood of the bid boardwalk and bathhouses within reach of its fury. No Pitts burger ever came to Atlantic City during the palmy days of tho iron pier without paying it a visit, and it will be cheerful news to hear that it has fallen into the hands of tho Reading Rail road Company, and is being restored to its former beauty. The pier is situated at tho ocean terminus of Massachusetts avenue, and the Reading Company has just secured from Council permission to occupy that avenue with a single tracK connecting witn the present terminus on Baltic avenue. This practically completes a line from Philadel phia direct to the beach, and in return for the franchise the railroad company proposes to givethe vicinity the benefit of capital and enterprise. To nis end the iron pier is being rapidly restored, and when completed will be occupied by an operatic company or by some other form of agreeable entertain ment. In the courso of time, possibly next year, amagniflcenthotel will be erected near the beach, and the interests of the locality will receive an immense boom. Another and even greater change will greet tho Pittsburg visitor at Applegato's pier, which from now on will be known as Young and McShea's pier, those enterpris ing gentlemen having purchased it lor a considerable sum. In the roasting days of summer, when sickly children stifle and fret under, the scorching sun and melting mor tals pant for a bieuth of fresh air, this pier is the coolest of the few cool places on the island, and, on the authority of a well known physician, annually saves the lives of more babies than all the medicine in tho pharmacopeia." Yet not long ago tho city lathers discussed thq advisability ol tear ing it down, but the baro mention of the idea raised such a storm of opposition from all quarters that tho subject was speedily dropped, and the owners began to improve their property. When the work now in progress is completed the pier wiU have been ' extendbd 400 feet,' further into the ocean. This is done to permit good fishing. In tho main pavilion hops will be held as usual, the openingone being given to-night under the auspices of the cottage colony. So far the place has changed, but otherwise it is the same, gay old Atlantic City of last season and of many seasons to come. The weather, on which the inerests "of the resort are almost entirely dependent, has been simply perfect during the week, and the uaiiy range oi tno temperature several ae- rees lower than tbatlu Pittsburg or Phila elphla. Bathing has already begun, al though the regularseason for that luxurious pastime is yet a fortnight off. Early crab bing, brought about by the mild winter, is another sport which is being enjoyed. The carrousscls aro spinning, toboggans sliding, yachts gliding, saltwater tafly ooollng. mos quitoes still weaning on the bottle and what more do you want? The Pittsburg Contingent. Miss C. B.

Veazey, in a circular letter to the order, writes as fol lows: In connection with what has been termed the "Silver" anniversary, tho attention of comrades is called to the action of the twenty-fourth National Encampment at Boston in respect to the erection of a Me morial Hall at Decatur, III., the birthplace of the order, for a depository of tho records and other material constantly accumulat ing, essential to a preservation of the his tory, in all its details, of the G. A. R. Pur suant to such action the Commander in Chief appointed a committee, consisting of Comrades Richard J. Oalesby, of Illinois; George A. Marden, or Massachusetts, and Joseph W. O'Neall, of- Ohio, to carry out tho expression of the encampment In this be half, and this committee has issued a com munication to the comrades setting forth their action and recommendations. As the committee therein state, tho National En campment voted that the proposed monu mental and memorial structure should bo erected from the voluntary contributions of mo cumraues. . It is very essential that a depository for tho purpose alluded to should be speedily provided, as tho records andotherhistorlcal material of our order, are already volumi nous, rapidly increasing, and are liable to waste, loss or destruction. It would be an appropriate and worthy celebration of the quarto-centennial year to make provision by our own voluntary act, and it need not bear with anyappreciable weightonany, for this necessary and laudable object. The Commander in Chief, therefore, com mends this matter to tho favorable consid eration of all departments and posts, and would suggest that prompt action be taken to the end that all contributions of comrades be completed soon, as a full rnnoi-t will hn rendered at tho National Encampment at Detroit in August of all receipts up to July 15, so that immediate attention is needed to secure recognition therein. Major Frank L. Hays, of Decatur, 111., has been appointed treasurer by the local com mitteo having the matter in charge at Deca tur, to receive all contributions; and all re mittances, with lists of comrades sharing therein, should be sent direct to him as nbove. All posts are also requested to send him at the same'timo one of their post rosters, to be placed with the others in the archives of this structure, that the name and history of each post may be transmitted to generations yet unborn.who may thus learn by whose exertions this great nation was brought safely through the storms of war to the later years so fraught with the blessings of peace.
