Breaking of Buzzard CamD.
The Blizzard Camp at Mt. bake
Park broke up Tuesday, and the boys
have come home. T?his organization
is composed of young men of this
city who have been keeping bachelor's
hall for the past three weeks.

Miss Menear Home.
Miss Olive Menear returned last
night frofn a week's shopping in Pittsburg.
Miss Pinnell, the "Little Shop's"
trimmer, who accompanied Miss Menear.
will remain in Pittsburg for a
week or so longer to become thoroughly
acquainted with the fall styles in
millinery. Miss Menear reports the
new ideas in headwear as exceedingly
t becoming, and speaks in particular of ;
j the increased height in hat crowns. |
This is the leading feature in fall and !
winter styles and one that will be wel- j
corned by most women, who are heart- i
iiy tired of the exaggerated flat, broad j
crown. The colors, she states, are j
; gorgeous in the extreme, peacock blue :
and green and burnt orange predominating.
The early fall openings at
the different millinery stores will
probably begin between the middle
and last of this month. Most of the
buyers are in the East at this time
purchasing stock, and in a few weeks
the shop windows will be aglow with
attractive designs, copies of the latest
Paris fashions.
HEARST, WATSON AND PARKER.
"Watson is going into the campaign
in the close States to express his and
Hearst's opinion of Judge Parker. Mr.
Hearst might do thisJhimself, but his
method in politics is to hire a mega:
phone, and so he employs Watson.
! As the stars in their courses are fighti
ing against Parker anyway, what Watson
says for himself and vicariously
for Hearst will not make much difference.
but it will add to the joy and
gaiety of the campaign."-?San Francisco

At a recent meeting of the police ?
committee, it was decided to reduce
the present police force. On account
of the numerous petty criminals at
work on different lines of railroad
building in this vicinity, it was deemed
advisable last spring to increase
the police protection. Since the work
stopped a few "kicks" have been heard |
relative to the extra expense caused v
by the employment of these men. Just
prior to their advent as guardians of j
rhe city numerous fires and other depredations
were very common, but owing
to their efficiency the city has en- ]
joyed a notable cessation of any form J
of lawlessness. ^
The police committee,* composed of .
Councilmen Lilly. Everhart and Davis, J
met last Thursday evening and con- J
sidered the matter, with the result
that the two former voted to reduce
the force by removing these patrol- j ,
men, while. Mr. Davis voted against it. ! J
After flue deliberation the committee : ,
decided that Officers Fortney. PK?ss : '
and Walker should be suspended, said ,
men to be relieved September 1. To- j ..
day the three officers turned in their j
accoutrements, and commencing to- ; ^
night the city will be less thoroughly j
protected than at any time during the J j"
past six months.
It was rumored last night that a ! j
special meeting of council would be j ^
called for this evening to consider the j ,
matter. The opinion prevails to-day;'
that it will be left to the regular i .
meeting night, next Tuesday. This is j *
a wise decision, as it will give prop- J j
erty owners and business men an op- j t
portunity to express their opinion of j
the reduction. ;

^ Happy Birthday Anniversary and
Celebration.
One of the most pleasant social
jvents of the present time took place
it Calvin Arnett's residence, near Galaiiue's
Switch, on Buffalo creek. Sunlay,
Aug. 2S, it being the seventieth
tnniversary of his birth. The day
vas one of the fairest of the season,
he grove one of the greenest and
cleanest of the community. The sueless
in keeping any knowledge of its
treparation from Mr. Arnett was so
complete and his appreciation of the
social so apparent, along with the
nost sumptuous dinner of the day. it I
consisting of everything that is good
md being served in the most approbate
manner, and the meeting and
cind greeting of old friends made it
i day long to be remembered. Mr. Artett
was the recipient of so many valu,v,i?
nrBK?nr? from bis friends, and
hey were presented to him by I. B.
Glasscock in such a humorous and
mpressive manner, that he may be
erupted to build an addition to his
louse or set up a dry goods and gro:erv
store.
But we have reasons, from his rons'
appearance, to hope that he may
ive to use many of the presents.
Vmong the many making presents, his
>id comrade, James Hamilton, appears
0 be one of the most gracious givers,
or which he may expect to receive a
uture reward, his gift consisting of
1 considerable part of a barrel of su;ar
presented in a beautiful white
jowl of huge dimensions, which pleasfd
Mr. Arnett wonderfully, as he is a
over of sugar and admires the bowl.
There were so many presents and so
nany pleasant meetings that they
oukl not be. enumerated without askng
too much "space, and hoping that
dr. Arnett and friends may live to eaoy
many such occasions we will try
o mention those present who enjoyed
he hospitality of Mr. Arnett and fam-'

SEPTEMBER 24TH
Will Be the Ooenina Dav for the Foot- .
ball Season.
Athletic Director Chez, of \V. V. XJ., |
was in the city 'for a short time this ;
afternoon. Professor Chez has spent j
the greater part of the summer at Mt. ;
Lake Park, and was en route from i
that resort to Morgan town. In speak- i
ing of football affairs he said:
"I expect to take the Candidates. i
thirty-five or. forty in number, to the
farm' Monday next, to remain until j
a few days before the opening of the j
season, which will be September 24. j
The encampment at Manassas will j
badly handicap us for the first week, i
as both Manager. Richards and Cap- ;
tain Multon are members of the National
Guard, and will likely be compelled
to go. I consider the schedule
a very hard one, and we shall
have to do the stiffest kind of work
to pull out a majority of victories.
But from what I have seen of the candidates
at W. V. U. I firmly believe we
will surprise every one by our showing
this fall."
