of the game. They made a run in the
13th inning which put them one In the
lead, but when Washington came to
bat the umpire sent the two men to

Letter to Councilman 8. J3. Cross I
Butler, Pa.
Dear Sir: Two years ago the estate of
the late Congressman Scott, of Erie, Pa,
painted 24 Rolling-Mill houses one coat
Devoe at a saving of 11 per cent for
paint (lead-and pil was after the job.)
That's how the tale reads. We infer
what really happened.
The buyer, as usual, went by the cost
of paint; got bids. Lead-and-oil bid low
and guessed tho quantity low: the sav
ing was only It per cent.
Nobody seems to have thought of this:
the painting costs two or three times as
mnch as the paint. How much did we
save on the painting? Don't know.
The tale ends with this: We often
refer inquirers to those houses; for wear
of Devoe.
That's a good-enough story; but no
body knows what it is. Our only diffi
culty is want of paint-intelligence.
Yonrs truly,
70 F W DEVOE & Co
P. S.—Patterson Bros, sell our paint.

When the rights of these productions
1 are secured from the authors, the scenic
i equipment is also purchased complete,
» and our patrons are thus given the best

A Great Dav.
At least thirty-thousand people of
Butler county got up early, last Thurs
day morning, dressed up, and hitched
' up or went to the railroad stations, and
came to Butler. The B. &O. and Bes
! sie trains had to return to Callery and
Chicora and Keister. that morning, to
pick up those left behind, and the
crowds that came up town from the sta
tions were the largest we have ever
seen.
Everything eatable in all the hotels
' and restaurants of the town disappear
! Ed, and the restaurants on the grounds
did a large business.
The crowd on the grounds was a re
cord breaker. It was estimated at from
thirtv to fortv thousand Thirty thou
sand'tickets of admission to the grounds
and grand stand were sold that day and
the total number of admissiots for the
four days was about sixty-thousand.
The managers of the Fair do not care ta
give the exact figures
The crowd, Thursday, was so great
that cne could see nobody or nothing,
and the affair resembled that of the
King of Spain who "with forty-thons
and men marched up a hill and then
marched down again.'
The street cars and hacks hauled the
crowd without accident, excepting the
trifling affair on the steep place near
the Centre avenue bridge: and there
were no accidents to human beings on
the grounds, excepting the bumping of
the Italians who ran across the track in
front of the horses.
Labor Day.
Next Monday is Labor Day, when a
great crowd is expected in Butler for
the Fourth Annual Celebration of the
holiday by the Unions of Butler. Jos.
Woods is Grand Marshal of the day and
the parade will start at 10:30 and tra
verse the following route, west on Cun
ningham to Main, to Wayne, to Mc-
Kean, to Zeigler, to Lookout, to Jeffer
son. to McKean. north on McKean to

ington, to Cunningham, to Main, to
Jefferson. In addition to the three
, brass bands and all organized labor of
the town, the glass blowers of Parker
will take part in the parade
At Alameda Park, in the afternoon,
addresses will be made by Hon D. A.
Havs of Philadelphia and Lev. McQnis
tion of Butler. An orchestra of ten
pieces will furnish the music for danc

also be sports and contests of various
kinds, with prizes, at the Park in the
afternoon. All are invited.

Pennsylvania Railroad Main-
tains Schedule.
(New York Tribune, August 13, 1905.)
Daring the month of July the Penn
syluania Special arrived in Chicago ex
actly on the minute of its schedule
every day. The eastbound Pennsyl
vania Special arrived in New York on
schedu!e time twenty-three days. The
average detention on seven days was
less than ten mintes, due entirely to
conditions for which the train crew
could not be held responsible. Tbe
greatest breach in the schedule was on
July 14, when the Special was held up
behind a freight wreeck, which block
ed all four tracks on the Middle Di
vision, entailing a loss of two hours and
twenty-two minutes in the regular ar
riving time at New York.
It is difficult to find a match for this
record. It demonstrates that the
schedule has sufficient elasticity to take
up any ordinary detentions which may
occur between termini, and that even a
faster regular schedule may be made
should it be deemed wise. Tne fine
condition of the roadbed, the efficient
motive power, and skillful operation all
contribute to the ease with which the
Special accomplishes it 3 work.
