W. D. BRANDON, Esq , who recent
ly returned home here from bis trip
to Europe, states some thing* he ob
served that (co to show that the old
country is still behind the new one.
For instance, in some parts visited he
saw more women at work in the fields
than men. The women not only help
to gather the crops but to put them
In. In small fields or lots of ground
they are to be seen digging with
some kind of a hoe, preparing the
ground for the new crops. But little
plowing is done, as herp. As re
gards the crops taken off women gener
ally market them in small carts, pushed
by themselves with the aid of dogs
attached. The marketing to the
towns or cities is done in this way.
Large numbers of these little carts
are to be seen at market place s, the
railroads being seldom used to con
vey marketing as is done in this
At the same time farms or fields
are more highly improved than in this
country, everything about them look
ing clean and neat, and not a tillable
foot of earth but what is worked
No fences as a general thing exist
One farmer or tiller will cut or work
up to bis line and there stop. What
looked a little strange to an Ameri
can was to see a soldier pacing up and
down in the farming or rural districts,
apparently to guard tbem. This was
the case especially near the borders of
certain provinces. Through the coun
try everything has an old or Qnibhed
look and in this consists the great con
trast between the old and this country,
where everything looks new or as
just begun.
As to storms upon the ocean, of
which bis vessel experienced some
heavy ones on the returning trip, they
are peculiar in that they come up
suddenly. You have no signs of
warning of their coming, as upon the
land. Yon bear thunder and but
seldom see lightning.
The daily papers in Europe must
geoerally be obtained at news stands
upon the streets and are not carried
about and sold by boys as here.
Their papers are so filled with their
own matters transpiring that they
seem to give but litttle attention to
anything transpiring in the United
States, many of tbem apparently not
jet knowing that there is such a
place as the United States. These
and many other interesting matters
that Mr. Brandon states might be of
interect to our readers did time and
•paet permit giving tbem.
About the Fair.
Another Butler Fair has come and
gone and all agree it was the largest
and best yet had. More people were
supposed to be in Butler on Thurs
day, the third day of the Fair, last
week, than on any former day in our
history. To see the people coming
and returning in their buggies, wag
ons and other conveyances it was a
wonder where they all camo from.
While the success of the Fair was
thus great this success itself brought
to light some improvements much
needed for the future. The first and
most importaut of these brought out
distinctly is the need ot more road
ways for reaching the grounds. The
only road now for vehicles to the
grounds, from where the same con
nects with or leaves the main, or
New Castle road, is a narrow one
and in some places is unsafe when
crowded, especially to persons on
foot. We are told that on several
occasions last week persons walking
to the Fair came near being run over.
There is no side or foot walk, and
fast drivers rush along and often so
close to the fences as to endanger life.
This road should not only be improv
ed but enlarged if possible. Besides
this, other roads to the ground might
be opened which would facilitate the
means of reaching it. A isitors from
the whole southern end of the coun
ty would be saved near a mile in
travel if a short cut way was opened
acrossthe valley of tbecreek from town.
As it is they have to take a round of
almost a circuit, to some of them.
Another road needed would be one
on the west of the ground so that
persons from that part of the county
could enter without traveling so far
around as they now have to do.
This could be accomplished by en
larging the grounds which we are
pleased to learn the managers of the
Fair have in contemplation of doing.
They should own the ground out to
what is known as the Pearce road.
It would put the ground in better
shape and the Fair last week showed
an enlargement is already demand
Some are also of the opinion that
there should be more conveniences
erected in the way of seats and shel
ters. Many women with children
aod aged persons were much fatigued
last week io not finding a seat to set
and rest upon. Then in case of a
sudden storm or heavy rain coming
up the want of sheltering places
might be severely felt. Such an
event on Thursday of the Fair might
have created a panic among so large
a crowd as might have resulted in
personal injury to many. With the
enlargement of the grounds these
sheltering places and seats could be
provided. More water and water
closets it is said should alto be pro
These suggestions are made in the
interest of the Fair, The one just
had proves the growing interest tak
en in it and the probable increase of
numbers at it in the future.
We presume a list of the premi
ums granted will be published. Ibis
should be done, that all exhibitors as
well as the public may know the suc
cessful ones. There were so many
exhibitors and ao great a variety of
articles on the ground that it would
be impossible for us, or for any pa
per, to give all of them by name. V\ e
think it would pay the management
to have them published.
Visitors at the Re-union.

Conclusion of the Constitution
Centennial Anniversary
PHILADELPHIA, PA., Sept. 18. —
The closing exercises attendant upon
the celebration of the centennial anni
versary of the American Constitution
began yesterday with a public recep
tion to tbr President in the Commis
sioners' office at City Hall, followed
by the memorial meeting in Indepen
dence Hall. On the staud beside the
Chief Magistrate of the Nation were
the Justices of the highest courts,
the foreign ministers, aud represent
atives of the army and navy aud
eyeiy department of civic, military
and religious life. Two thousand
children of the public schools sang
the opening chorus. Prayer was
offered by Bishop Potter, of the Epis
copal Church, also by Cardinal Gib
bons, of Baltimore. Patriotic songs
were rendered, and the new National
hymn was recited. The introduc
tory address was delivered by Hon
John A. Kasson, President of the
Constitution Centennial Commission.
At its conclusion, after the rendering
of Schiller and Mendelsohn's "Ap
peal to the Truth," by a male chorus
of 200 voices, Mr. Kasson introduced
President Cleveland, who made an
address. He was followed by Sam'l
F. Miller, senior Justice of the Su
preme Court of the United States,
who delivered an oration, occupying
over an hour.
Mrs. Cleveland sat in front ot the
learned and eccentric Justice, but
made little attempt to follow him.
She wore a steel-gray bonnet, trim
med with peach blossoms. Her dress
was steel-gray and white plaid, trim
med with gray velvet and relieved by
a vest of peach color. When she
appeared on the.front of the grand
stand her beauty captured the mul
titude. And as she and her husband,
the President, standing hand in hand,
smiled down upon them the multi
tude awoke the echoes with uproar
ious applause, which did not die
away for several minutes after the
distinguished pair bad been seated.
While this welcome must have been
very gratifying to the ' first lady of
the land," still that given to her on
her way to Independence Square
was much more so.
The President held a public recep
tion in the new City Ilall in the
morning and sLock hands with 5.763
people in an hour and a half. One of
the shakers told him he hop id
there would be a son born in the White
House before the year was out.
The greetings of the people and the
responses of the President were of
the most informal character and char
acteristic of the American people's
republicanism. One good-looking
woman, with bright red hair, not
satisfied with the ordinary greeting,
made a quick movement, and before
anyone realized it, had kissed the
President unawares, as he was look
ing out the window. Of course
there was a laugh in which every
body joined.
At the conclusion of the memorial
services, about 1 P. M , the Marine
I'and rendered a march, daring which
the President and Mrs. Cleveland
retired, amid the prolonged cheeriug
of the great crowd present, and were
driven to their hotel, aud while the
President went to dine with the Hi
bernian Society at St George's Ilall.
Mrs. Cleveland changed the dress she
had worn in the morningifor a pretty
dark-brown, with a delicate bonnet to
match, and with Mr 3. Lamont and
the other ladie3 who came with her
from Washington proceeded on a
special train to Wooton, tho hand
some summer residence of George W.
The party invited by Mr. and Mrs.
Childs was very select, yet tbe spa
cious lawq> surrounding the house
and saloons in it were crowded with
an ever-moving throng of brilliantly
attired ladies aud gentlemen. All
the Army aod Navy officers in town
were present, as well as the distin
guished men and dignitaries, with
representatives of Philadelphia's best
society. To Mrs. Cleveland, stand
ing beside Mrs. Childs, the guests
were presented upon their arrival,
aud from 3 o'clock to G the bright
procession passed by. Those pre
sented paused but to exchange a word
or so, and then went away to allow
those who followed the same privi
lege. It is unnecessry to say that
the decorations at Wooton were ele
gant. Words fail to describe the
beautiful effects which Mr. and Mrs.
Childs had managed to produce in
their already beautiful place. It was
a grand affair, a scene that will long
fcs remembered.
In tho afternoon the President ap
peared at the closing feature of the
celebration, a banquet given at the
Academy of Music by the University
of Pennsylvania, American Philo
sophical Society, College of Physic
ians, Law Academy, Historical So
ciety, Franklin Institute, Academy
of Fine Arts aud the Academy of
Natural Sciences.
Mrs. Cleveland, attired in a bril
liant evening dress, upon which os
trich feathers figured prominently,
also attended this banquet. At this
banquet, in the course of his speech,
the President said:
On such a day as this, and in the
atmosphere that now surrounds him,
I feel that the President of tbe U. S
should 1)0 thoughtfully modest and
humble. The great office he occupies
stands to-day in the preaenco of its
maker; and it is especially fitting for
this servant of the people ami crea
ture of the Constitution, amid tho im
pressive scooes of this Centennial
occasion, by a rigid self-examination
to be assured concerning his loyalty
and obedience to tbe law of his exis
tence Ho will find that the rules
prescribed for his guidance require
for the performance of his duty, not
the intellect or attainments which
would raise him far above the feeling
and sentiment of the plaiu people of
tho land, but rather such a knowledge
of their condition and sympathy with
their wants and needs as will bring
him near to them.
—With tho Fair last week, and
the Reception to the survivors of the
11th l'enn'a Reserves this week, our
town has been crowded and our peo
ple have seen much to interest and
instruct them.
—September secm3 to be the choice
month for displays, public celebra
tions aud ceremonies. This present

—During the past two weeks
many of our subiribers in arrears
called and settled up and took a new
start. Put there are yet many ac
counts that it is very dtsirable to
have paid up, in order that needed
improvements to the paper may be
made and our debts paid. The ex
penses of publishing a paper are
heavy; machinery will wear out, and
money is con3tautly needed. We
again request the attention of all sub
cribers to this matter.
Dr. Roth Honored.
From Greenville papers of Sept. 1«».]
In view of the resignation of Rev.
l>r 11. VV. Kotb, President of Tbiel
College, and the acceptance of the
same by the Board of Trustees, and,
the subsequent possible removal of j
the Dr. from our place, it was deem- ,
ed proper that he should not be per- j
milted to go without some public no- j
tice being taken of the event. A j
meeting of citizens was called for last '
Friday evening, at Laird Opera
House, and when the evening came
the Opera House was well tilled in
all parts by au intelligent audicace
composed of representative gentle
men and ladies of our town, in the
audience, too, were quite a number of
the Lutheran General Council, in
session in this place at the time.
J. T. Blair, General Manager of
the S. A. It. It., presided, and iu
taking the chair made a few pertinent
remarks. Rev. C. B. Wakefield, pas
tor of the Presbyterian church, led in
prayer. A. F. Henleiu, Esq., chair
man of the committee on resolutions, j
presented the following, which were
The citizens of the borough of
Greenville, assembled in the Opera
House on the Oth day of September,
A. D. 1887, to tender a public recep
tion to H. W. Roth, desirous of ex
pressing their appreciation of the
learning, high character, and integ
rity of one of their number, and their
love and esteem for him and their
disappointment at the unexpected
termination of his official connection
with Thiel College, to which institu
tion be has given the best part of his
life and ability, have unanimously
adopted the following resolutions.
Resolved, That in Dr. Roth his
fellow citizens and neighbors have
always found a kind and generous
friend, a wiso counselor and an up
right man, one whose public and pri
vate life have been a high example
to the young men of the college and
this community, and to whose efforts,
largely, the preEent prosperity of the
college is due.
Resolved, That in the performance
of the arduous duties of his position
as President and preacher, I)r. Roth
has filled the measure of duty, never
refused to sacrifice his own interests
to the welfare of the college or turn
ing a deaf ear to the calls of charity,
at once performing well the duties of
President, and by his kindly words
and unassuming life aud Christian
character preaching a practical ser
mon every day ofhis life for all of us.
Resolved, That the citizens of the
borough having contributed consid
erable sums to the construction and
support of Thiel College, and being
interested for this and many other
reasons in the continued prosperity of
the institution, deeply deplore the
acceptance of the resignation of Dr.
Roth as President, and hope that the
Board of Trustees may be able to find
another man equal to him in charac
ter, learning, and integrity, and who
may occupy the fame position in the
hearts of his neighbors that Dr. Roth
always has.
Resolved, That we extend to Dr
Roth our best wishes for continued
success in whatever po3itiou he may
occupy, with the hope that he may
go forward in his work of doing good
with renewed effort, encouraged by a
firm belief in Him who doeth all
things well.
Brief remarks were then made by
Rev. S. 11. Eisenberg, of the ltaform
ed church, Rev. C S. Tinker, of the
Baptist church, J. C. Brown, Wm.
Achre, E. S. Tcmpleton, Esq, and
F. H. Keller, Esq. Rev. J. R. Brit
tain, D D. of the U. P. church, then
took the platform and in an admirable
presentation speech, presented Dr.
Roth with a valuable gold watch, ac
companied by a list of the names of
those who contributed towards pur
chasing it.
The whole affair was quite & suc
cess, and nothing was said or done
which ought to be offensive to any
one. Dr. Roth made a strong appeal
in behalf of Thiel College and for his
successor, whoever ho may be, aud
the sentiment was universal that the
interests of Thiel College must al
ways be kept in view and promoted
by all honorable means.

BRUIN, Sept. 5, 1887 Y
On account of a clerical error in
the records in the Adjutant General's
office at Harrisburg, and also in Bates'
History of the War, the statement
appears that James W. Orr, a pri

Pennsylvania Volunteers, enlisted at
Harrisville, Butler county, now re
siding at Bruin, Butler county, was
a deserter from the United States ser
Now, how ibat error was made at

error, we do not kiiow, but we do
know that tbo papers iu James W.

The Great Celebration.
The celebration in Philadelphia
last week, Sept. 15, 10, and 17, of the
first century of the formation of the
Constitution of the United States,
wa3 the grandest affair yet wituessed
in this country.
Ou the first day was a parade il
lustrating the industries of the Na
tion and the great change in them
from now and a hundred years ago.
This was an immense exhibition of
all the mechanical and other arts aud
The second day was the military
display, in which 15,000 men were
in line, makiug tbo grandest parade
of the militia of all the States. The
Governors of the different States were
present, riding at the head of their
The third and closing day cere
monies were of a literary and social
character, in which addresses were
made by tbo President of the United
States, the President of tho Centen
nial, aud other distinguished citizens.
An address on the Constitution was
made by Justice Miller of the United
States Supreme Court. It would
take a book to contain aud tell all
said and done. Sullied for us to say

[country was a grand success.
A Gibbet 28 Feet Long.
CHICAGO, Sept. 18.—Preparations
were begun yesterday for the execu
tion of the seven Anarchists in the
county jail on Friday, November 11.
Sheriff Matson will receive S7OO for
that day's work, as the county allows
him SIOO for every man hanged.
Just how the big job will be accom
plished has not been decided. The
three Italian murders were hauapd to
gether on the same scaffold, ana that
bit of enterprise taxed to the utmost
limit the hanging capacity of the jail.
One scheme is to hang the men in
pairs, leaving Albert it. Parsoc3 to
the last as the seventh or odd man.
The law says the men must be exe
cuted between the hours of 10 in the
morning and 4 iu tha afternoon, aud
it is thought the intervening time
wiir suffice for the worji on this plan
If this mode is adopted the modern
weights will be U9ed. Sheriff Mat
son is opposed to the plan because of
t-be long-drawn-out agony of a day's
work at hanging, and favors the old.
fashioned platform , trap and drop.
There is just enough room in the
jail corridor to erect an extension gib
bet twenty-eight feet long, giving
four feet space for the drop of each
body. Seven ropes will hang from
the cross-beam, which in turn will be
supported by five iron arms. The
traps will be arranged to drop from a
long bar extending the length of the
platform by which the seven traps
can be released simultaneously and
the seven Anarchists be all launched
into eternity together. Tho exten
sion gibbet will be erected privately
in some secret place during the next
fortnight, and experiments will be
made until it works in a satisfactory
manner. If tbe condemned Anarch
| ists really hope for success in appeal
ing to the Federal Supreme Court or
to Gov. Oglesby, their hope is not
shared by Sheriff Matson, Jailer Folz
or State's Attorney Gricnell, and all
necessary preparations for the execu
| tion of the sentence will proceed rap
i idlv.
The Sheriff has tried hard to keep
from the papers the feet that he is
preparing to put away the doomed
nieii and be will have succeeded until
the publication of this. Spies,
Schwab and Engel are confident tbat
their execution will take place at the
time fixed by the Supreme Court, aDd
Parsons is the only one of the number
who expresses confidence in the ability
of their friends to save their lives.

He was a member, teacher in the S. S. and
leader of the choir in the U. P. church of
that place, but at his request was buried in
Westminster graveyard, Clinton twp , Butler
Co. We have reasons to believe him in the
laud of rest; still that knowledge cannot re
move the grief of his relatives. He leaves a
wife and four small children. His .wily de
sire to live was tor his little family. Friends
may think to comfort the bereaved wife, feel
ing that they can sympathize with her; but
is it not true that when we, who have buried
members of our own families, witness the
sorrow of another, the tears we she.l are often
the result of the rc-opecing of wounds, which
our one-time sympathisers thought time had
healed. Christ alone can comfort the sor
