Butler's Big Fair.
It only comes once a year but when it
does come it is great and all Bntl»r
county rejoices, for it is the picnic of
all picnics: everybody goes they can
take their baskets along and eat their
dinner under the beautiful shade trees:
the grounds are the finest in the State:
the show is the best: the races most ex
citing: the cavalcade the grandest: the
stock the choicest: the crowd the larg
est; the people the handsomest: the
order the best: and a feeling of cheer
fulness is seen everywhere.
The Butler Fair is one Fair that is
conducted in the interest of the people;
it it not managed to make money then*
are no dividends declared. If the stock
holders can have a Fair such as to be
the pride of Butler county they are sat
isfied without making money, they
want the people pleased and this year
they are making preparations to hold
the largest Fair in the history of Butler
county: every one can go easily; besides
the usual ways:there will be a street car
line to the grounds and also there Is
another way to drive to the grounds
without coming in contact with the
street cars.
The North Bntler, West Sunbury,

Washington. Fairview and Concord
Presbyterian congregations held a re
union at the latter church in Concord
fwp. last Thursday. All of these
churches are offsprings of the Concord
church, which is one of the oldest in
the country, and this is the first reunion
they have held. The Concord church
had its inception in the summer of 1799,
when Rev. John McPherrin, of West
moreland county, preached to the pion
eers beneath the spreading branches of
a large oak tree near the site of the
present church. The first church build
ing was a log cabin, with earthen floor,
split log seats and an old-fashioned fire
place. In 1838 the present brick build
ing was erected. Rev. R. L. Alter has
been pastor at Concord for the past six
years A history of the chnrch will be
found in this paper.
Rev. John A. Douthett of Greensburg
preached in the U. P. chnrch. Sunday.

A Wholesale Grocery.
Rumberger and McCoy, the whole
sale grocers of Liberty street, Pitts
burg, have established a branch store
room in Butler with their well known
salesman, J. G. Runkle in charge. "It is
located in the old Boos warehouse be
tween the Kesselman machineshop and
the Oil Well Supply sucker rod shop on
the P. & W. tracks. Home grocers
find it an immense advantage over by
iair from foreign houses, as there are no
freight charges and all they need to do is
send their wagon around and get what
they want. A large amount of trade
for the branch house comes from towns
along the B. R. &P. railroad. A whole
sale grocery house has long l>een needed
in Butler and under Mr. Runkle it is
sure to be a big success.
Grand Opera House, I'ittsburg.
The season at the Pittsburg Grand
Opera House will open Monday after
noon, September 3rd. While a good
many members of last season's stock
company will return, there will be
several new faces in the organization,
and they have all been engaged with a
view of making the company the best
that has yet been employed in stock
work in Pittsburg. The old members
who came back are Thomas W. Ross,
Marion Ballou, Lida McMillen, Edward
Poland, Joseph Woodburn, Willis Mar
tin, and Lorle Palmer. Mr. William
Ingersoll, who was the leading man the
last four weeks last Season, and who
made such a tremendous success in the
principal parts, is also in this year's
company, while the new leading
woman is Miss Frances Drake, an ac
tress of great ability, who has been
identified with some of the best, travel
ing and stock companies in America,
during the past six or eight years
Another important new engagement is
that of Benjamin Johnson, who will
play the comedy old men, formerly
played by Robert Ransom. Mr. John
son is universally admitted to be the
best man in this line of work in the
country. Another newcomer will be
Miss Alice Gale, who plays the mother
ly old woman and such parts, and from
this actress' past record it is expected
that patrons of the Grand will find in
her one of the best women that has been
seen upon the Orand Opera House
stage. J. C. Huffman, who has been
the stage director at the Grand for so
long, will also be fit his old post of duty,
which insures the same magnificence in
the piatter of productions that has
always characterized the Grand Opera
Old patrons of this theatre will hard
ly know it when they return in the Fall.
The honse is practically now from the
street to the rear wall on the stage. All
of the furnishings are new, including
the draperies and chairs. The audito
rium and the vast lobbies have all been
newly painted and decorated, and the
main lobby from the street up to where
the ticket taker stands has been laid
with a very rich and expensive mosaic
''linr of fanciful design and beautiful

Railroad Note*.
The statement of earnings of the
Buffalo, Rochester & Pittsburg just
issued for the fiscal year shows increase
in earnings note worthy even in these
days of improved railroad revenues.
The gain in gross is (1,210.166, or 30 per
cent, and in net *762.040, or 56 per cent.
Part of these large gains is due. how
ever, to the fact that since July 1 the
earnings of the Allegheny Jfc Western,
the extension in Western Pennsylvania,
have been included in the returns. The
record would seem to indicate that the
operation of this line accounts for even
more of the improvement in revenue
than mitrht be expected to come from a
new road. 60 miles in lenKth.
It is considered very doubtful if the
Pennsylvania Railroad will adopt nickel
steel fails for the points of severe ser
vice. At the famous Horseshoe Curve
the nickel steel rails have been replaced
by those of the ordinary steel type, for
it was found that the rails diminished
the tractive power of the engines on ac
count Qf their hardness.

THE STANDARD The announcement
of a Standard Oil company dividend of
eight per cent., payable September 15,
has caused another howl from the yel
low journals and the professional kickers
of the oil country. The other dividends
the present year have been, one of 20
per cent, on March 1, and one of 10 per
cent, on June 15. This will make a
total of 43 per cent, and another diyi
dend of five per cent, is expected before
the close of the year. A net dividend
of 48 per cent, is certainly something
handsome, but it must be borne in
mind that while the capital stock of the
corporation is nominally $100.000,000,
the actual property valnation of all its
pipe lines and refinTTies, gas plants, gas
and oil wells,, terminal facilities at the
seaboard, its tugs, tank steamers, and
oil barges, etc., is upward of $500,000,-
000. A profit of 4H per cent, on SIOO,-
000, 000 is only !) 8-5 per cent, on $500,-
0(H),000. Some of the previous large
dividends of the Standard were not
derived from profits of the manufactur
ing business, but by moneys received
and paid out by the liquidating trustees
in the process of converting the trust
back into its constituent companies.—
Park Theatre Opening
It is only three weeks now until the
Park theatre will open for the regular
season and the opening attraction is one
that has always proven a favorite in
Butler, the Macanley-Patton company,
which comes here for Fair week, and is
certain to play to standing room only,
as is usually the case during the week
of the big fair.
The company this season apj>ears
with new people, new scenery and a
repertoire of new plays, though of
course "The Minister's Son', is still on
the list, and well it deserves to be.
Among the new ones is Sol Smith
Russell's "Peaceful Valley," one of the
finest plays that has yet been staged in
any theatre. "Inside Track," "Lost
Paradise," "A Wasted Life," "Royal
Rags" and "The Other Fellow" complete
an exceptionally good repertoire that the
publi6 will appreciate Popular prices
will prevail and a bright line of special
ties will be introduced each evening.

The recent developments on the Great
Lakes have shown that the effort of
John D. Rockefeller to govern the lake
freights has failed utterly. Two things
indicate the end of tb fight and the
acknowledgment by .Mr. Rockefeller
that he is defeated. One is the constant
falling of lake rates, despite every effort
of the oil king to keep them up. and the
other is the announcement that Mr.
