The school building was crowded beyond its seating capacity. The meeting was opened with music and sing ng by the young people ot St. Martin \ icinitv. The first speakei on the program was Mr. George R. Cobb, County Agent of Wicomico County. Mr. Cobh explained the working- of the Wicomico County Produce-Exchange and mentioned the scope of busin's tlor.e by tho Association during its short existence and of the benefits de rived by the people of Wicomico County. Mrs. W. A. Hervard entertained the Grange by a reading entitled 'The Wind in the Moon." which met with hearty applause from all present. County Agent Oswald talked to the Grange for a few minutes on the possibilities of agricultural organiza tions for Worccstei County anil ex plained thi advantages of the Wor cester County Farmers' Federation and the need for rural organization. "N ASS A\V A Dl)l' X BELLES” HOLD HAPPY REI'NION A leunion of the "Nassawaddux Belle-.’’ a company of very e.-timable ladies, who held sway along in 1872 and '73, was held at the home of Mr. E. W. McMastrr, on the Pocomoke River on Friday of last week. The talk was reminiscent of “ye olden days,” "hen “girls were girls” just the same as they are today, except (as one of the ladies remarked), they did not wear their skirts as short. The gootl old days when everybody went to parties in covered wagons, drawn by mules, were recalled, ai d when the talk turned to dancing, i ne could almost hear the -craping and gliding of dainty feet n the Virginia Reel and Lancers, or \ isuaii;e the beaux as they bowed gallantly to thi it ladies, or swung them lightly to the lively music of the violin. It was recalled that one of the ladies, accompanied by her bosom friend, rode all the way to Snow Hill to get a spool of cotton. ; nd on her re turn was chided by her mother for getting green, when white was the color desired. Thus was the adage. “Love i- blind,” forcibly proven, for it was well known that the -pool of cotton was only a p. ett xt, and that there were stronger attractions to draw the young ladies to Snow Hi’l. One of the “hellos” -ar.g “T! e Whipi-nor-Will." a popular song in those days, and other well known song- were recalled. Among the “belles" present were the following: Mrs.. V i liam S. Mc- Ma.-ter, of Princess Anne (formerly Mi s Ella Dale); Mrs. Thomas H. Collins, of Snow Hill (formerly Miss Mollie E. Henson): Mrs. Herbert King, of Pocomoke (formerly Miss Harriett MrMasterl; Mrs. Montgomery Stagg. of Snow Hill, (formerly Miss Lucy ( K. Pollitt): Miss Sarah M. Stagg. Mrs. McMastcr, the h>>.-tcs-, wa- ton young (as or.p of the gusts express- • etl it) to be “on the carpet" when the ltelle- were in the hi ight of fheir power and glory. Mi. E. W. McMaster, our genial I Superintendent of Schools, was the only old time “beau present, :nd it i is safe to say that he got as much i pleasure out of the reurion as the "belles” themselves. Other guests included Miss Katie i Stagg. of Snow Hill, and Miss Katie Imlay. of New York. i BOYS* CL*. The Pocomoke “-j s,,*.- •iu )-* ' first summer meeting in the farmers’ Voom at the Pocomoke City National Bank on Saturday afternoon. This meeting was well attended by boys’ club members of I’ocomoke vicinity, especially those interested in pure bred pig club work. A bianch of the Maryland State Library Association is in charge of this club and books of interest to boys were distributed to its members. Plans for the holding of the pure bled pig club how at the Pocomke Fair were discus ed and arrangements made preliminary to holding this show. Walter iSrotnley, president oft! e club, told the boys of the Tri-State Camp, to which he had been uppo.nt ed a delegate. His talk was inter sting and gaw an idea of the won derful progress club work ha- marie in Maivland, Virginia and West Vir ginia. The Ft. Martin- and Whaley'ille clubs held their first summer meeting on Monday. The St. Martins club gathered at the home of Mr. Holden, where several hours were spent very profitably dismissing club activities. The Wlialeyville liov-' and Hills’ Club met at the home ol Mr. M. M. Dale at Whaley ille and were very nicely entertained . After the reg ular program, consisting of music, songs and n eititations. the boys were taken by the County Agent to judge some pun bred hogs belonging to Wdliam Dale, one ot the club mem ber-. and t!i<' girl- were instructed by the Home Demonstration Agent in the fundamentals of sewing. Ice cream and cake were then served to the club, after which games were played on the lawn.

This is on the ot of Easton, just a little city wi ’ the fair grounds and on a I •; roadway. To Talbot came the Quakers were expelled front the settlement the Quakers in New England. The visitors passed npar the fa on which is buried A. Dickinson, v was killed by Hen. Andrew Jack o later President of l nited States. "Mother of (io'ernora." Cambridge, the “Mother of Gov ernors,'' where Friday night was -pent, takes rank with other Eastern Shore towns as a real garden spot. In recent years it was produced three Governors—Gov. Henry Lloyd, who died recently; Gov. Phil ips Lee Golds borough and Gov. Emerson C. Har rington. The touring from Cambridge to Salisbury is devoid of other than local history. The State road leads through an old manor once owm d hy the Lee- of Virginia. Near to Del aware line is the (Id home of Patty Connon. the famous white woman who three-(|uarters of a centurry ago was engaged in alluring free colored men and women to her prison dwelling, when they w< re shipped to the South and there sold into slavery. Sharp town. where the Nanticoke river was crossed, was named for Governor Sharp, the last of the Colonial Gov ernors. An interesting town near the main thoroughfare between Sharp town and Salisbury is Mardela Springs, whose famous mineral waters make their way through fissures in the rock of Central Pennsylvania. Salisbury is said by many to lead in all Eastern Shore towns in thrift, en terprise and is a miniature city. The men who have contributed most to the progress of Salisbury possibly have been the Jacksons, former Governor Klihu E.. former Congressman Wil liam H.. and Senator W. P. Jackson, son of William H. Jackson. The town has had two disastrous tire-, the first in 1860 and the second in 1886, from both of which it rapidly recovered. The act creating the town was passed by th> General Assembly j n 17.12. (Juaint Princess Anne Princess .Anne, the re\t town visit ed. brought ejaculation- of surprise and approval fiom the tourists be cause of its flower gardens, its Co lonial homes and the neatness of its stores, though there are some i ye sores in the town. Somerset, of which Princess Anne is the county seat, boasts of records which date back from December 11. 1665. In 1742. according to the records. Princess Anne became the county seat of Somerset county and Snow Hill the county town of Worcester County. Among the county’s most notable contributions to public activities in other States were Governor Ix>wo and Governor Fletcher, both ( f whom were 'executives of Missouri. From Somer set to North Carolina went the father of President James K. Polk. To the same ancestry Episcopal Bishop Polk, who wa- also a genetal in the Con federate Army, and Senator Trusten Polk, of Missouri, trace their lineage. Fish \nd Crab Metropolis. Crisfield. where '.he party enjoyed a crab and fish dinner, was nami d for John W. Crisfield. who ranked for many years as the leader of the East ern Shore bar. He was one of the builders and president of the Eastern Shore Railroad, from Del mar to its terminus at Crisfield. In this enter prise he risked and 10-t his fortune. The history of Somt rset and Wor cester counties i.- replete with the early history of the Presbyterian Church in America. A- early as 1681 Presbyterians in Somerset county had been writing home for a rninist* r. and finally ( n< of these appeals reached the Presbytery of Laggan. in Ireland, where a young man bad just been licensed to preach. He heard the call and was quick to i vs pond. In the absence of documentary proof to the contrary, Presbyterians at Snow Hill believe that be organized that church and then continued his work in nearby localities. Craig head. in “Scotch and Irish Seed in American Soil." says about Makemie that “Arriving in this country in 1682 or 168.'1. he organized a church in Snow Hill. Md.. in 1864, which was, so far as is known, the first regularly organized Presbyterian Church in America." Berlin, which is the capital of the upper section of Worcester County, claims honor- for several things, as the home of the orchards of the Harri son Bros., as the training ground of Man o’ War, the famous race horse, as the birthplace of Stephen Decatur and of Peter P. Lindell, who laid out , the city of St. Louis. J. Y. B.
