—Nothing has -resulted from the

woods, though it has been continued
without intermission until the pres

their having been seen, or of their
'camps being discovered just after
they left, and of their being only a
short distance ahead have gained
currency from time to time, but, to

On last Friday the Pomona Grange
of this county had its Harvest Festival
in Burchardt's hall, Hay Creek, feeing
entertained by Hiy Creek and Hay
Creek Valley granges. The attendance
was fair though several granges of this
county were not represented and we
were disappointed by the non-appear
ance of invited guests from adjacent
counties. As farmers generally are
anxiously improving every pleasant day
now in threshing or plowing, in order
to get their fall work done in season,
it is not to be wondered at that they
neglected to attend this festival but
those who were there had nothing to
regret but the absence of friends and
neighbors. According to the under
standing previously had that it was to
be a basket picnic, most of those pres
ent came provided with the necessary
edibles but the hospitable members of
Hay Creek and Hay Creek Valley
granges would submit to no such im
position. They had made ample pre
parations for entertaining twee the num.
ber and were determined that there vie
tualtt should not spoil on their hands.
As the participants from a distance
arrived the members of the two granges
named ushered them into the spacious
hall, which was tastefully decorated for
the occasion with flowers, fruits and
foliage and on a long table extending
across the room, were plaeed the arti
cles brought for exhibition. These,
though meagre in quantity, fully made
up in quality for that defeet. We too«
a list of them as follows
Mr. Joseph Church, of Wacouta, ex
hibited a bushel of wheat, the quality
was extra good for this season and the
yield was 21 bushels per acre, although

inches through in every direction sev
eral ears of very large white dent corn

a fine assortment of Haas and Russet
Mrs. Brown of Wacouta, presented
a mammoth squash, measuring 3 ft. 3J
in. through in one direction and 2ft. 1
in. in the other, and tifc. around one
way and 7ft around the other, and
weighing 140 lbs. It was not wholly
Mr. Rudolph Kruger exhibited a
very handsome lot of Delaware grapes,
as fine in appearance and flavor as we
ever saw: some Duchess apples, one of
which measured 12 in. around a lot of
splendid dent corn, both white and yel
low Hyslop, Transcendent and Straw
berry erab apples, excellent as ta size
and quality, and a bottle of delieious
current wine of his own manufacture,
good enough to make even a Good
Templar forget his vows and turn wine
Mrs. Peter Erber exhibited a large
variety of standard and crab apples and
grapes, which were all very fine and
elicited general commendation.
Mr. Peter Erber brought in a very
handsome lot of Excelsior potatoes.
About half past eleven o'clock the
grange was called so order by Worthy
Master Wm. Hayman, and, after the
opening song, he who addressed the com
pany assembled as follows:

to meet you here to-day as Brothers and
Sisters of this noble Order. It is plea.

It is also pleasant to think that most
of the laborious work of the farm is
done for this year. And if the results
of our harvest do not come up to our
expectations, still we have considerable
to be thankful for. We must not ex

Brothers, these are important ques

must profit by experience, therefore, I
say, Patrons, plow deep. BUB I did
not intend to say much on this our Cen

are brothers to gpeak wiio are much
more capable of public speaking than

words of Worthy Master Adams: "Let
us work together, hand in hand, for the
common good of all, for the improve
ment of ourselves and those around us
and may contentment, comfor, and hap
piness embower our homes and may we,
realizing that we have lived to "some
good purpose, received the welcome
plaudit: "Well done, good and faith

on, practice Charity, and live up to the
requirements of our obligations.
A song was the next thing in order,
when a choir composed ot Mrs. Maria
Drew, Misses—-Smith, Rebecca
Taylor, Mattie Taylor and Manie V.
Sterling and Messrs. J. B. Smith and
W. S. Grow gave the "Plow, Spade and
Hoe" in excellent style Miss Mattie

Mr. B. B. Herbert was then called
upon for the address on "Harvest Fes.
tivals." He began by a brief allusion
to the antiquity of harvest festivals,
suggesting that they had their origin in
a recognition by mankind of the eternal
fitness of things, and were 'intended as
occasions of thanksgivings. In the
Jewish dispensation they were contin
ued by express command of the Al
'mighty, and the entire Jewish nation
went up annually to Jerusalem to cele
brate this festival, bearing with them
as offerings the first fruits of their
flocks and berds, and fields and .vine
since the Christian era these festi
vals have been continued down to our
own day, and in the countries of the
old world they are still the great occa
sions of the year. There they are far
more enjoyable and more generally par
ticipated in than in this country. All
sorts of games are introduced and the
season is devoted wholly to enjoyment.
He thought that these festivals
should be revived here, and that, in
stead of our annual fairs, which are at
best but dry and unsatisfactory 'and
accomplish very little real good to any
body, it would be well enough to com
bine the display of agricultural prod
ucts, machinery, etc, with discussions
of topics of interest to the farmers, and
with feasting and amusements. Let
the farmers and mechanics of caeh
county repair to some central locality
with their families, prepared to camp
out as at camp-meetings. Let them
take with them for exhibition and com
parison samples of the products of their
farms and workshops, and let them de
vote two or three days to inquiries, dis
cussions, feastings and social amuse
ments. They would then return home
refreshed, instructed and gratified,
readyto resume toil for another year
with greater zest and increased knowl
edge and chances of success.
On the conclusion of his remarks the
choir sung the "Laborers' Son**."
Mr. H. H. Young being next called
upon for a speech called attention to
the circumstance that harvest festivals
have, by all nations, been regarded and
