The Fourth at Mdnnlngton yester.day
was a grand melange of twelve

games, carnivals, red hot weather,
's e<en hotter oratory and a great hollI
< day spirit.

from their beds, and an hour later tho

' heading for the big celebration. To
f descrlbo how the people came to ManIt
nington yesterday would require more
adjectives than Robert Southey used
H in telling how the water comes down
iat Lodore.
Trains and street cars were packed
with a perspiring, good-humored and
expectant humanity all morning. So
crowded were the interurban cars out
of Fairmont that many persons gave
oyer the Idea of trying to fight aboard
one, and returned to their homes, some
as tar away as Falrvlew.
It would be as Impossible to tell of
$11 the things that happened at Mannlngton
yesterday as It would be to describe
everything that happened at a
three ring circus. So we'll Just tag

several thousand people were on the
streets and the. band of twenty clowns
was causing a continual uproar.
Until ten oclock be' milled around
and watched the crowds earning in and
then "went over to the high school and
listened to a bang up concert by the
Elks band. The band was augmented
by a number of musicians from out of
I town and was one of the features of
k. the day.
At 10:30 Clyde Kinsey marshalled
hfa chorus on a stand built on the high
HI gabool campus, and while It was not
a chorus of 300 by several, the singing
Hr was dandy. He stood at salute while
they sang two verses of the Star Span

they were going to sing all the verses.

has not been a big police court on July
5. This morning there was not a single
person to be tried.

keeping boys from shootiug fire crack
era on the streets, although the usual
complaints that (he city officials were
interfering with the boy's freedom by
not letting them shoot fire crackers,
were beard from many of the boys as
well as some parents.
Yesterday a man In Clarksburg got
down under his automobile to do some
repair work, a boy exploded a fire
cracker near him. catching the gasoline
in the car and almost burning the
man to death. The possibility of anysuch
accidents was eliminated by the
local officials early last ?eek when
they Issued the warning that no fire
