Nanticoke is making preparations to hold a large eisteddfod on Thanksgiving day. A branch of the Brotherhood of Lo comotive Firemen was organized in Hazleton on Saturday. Miss Hannah Barager, 14 years old, of Hazleton, fell from a pole swing on Saturday afternoon and was killed. Miss E. Laura Cannon, of Wilkes- Barre, has been appointed a standing commissioner to take testimony in Lu zerne county court. Mrs. Kaiser, of Sugar Notch, gave breakfast to a tramp the other morning, and when he was leaving took Mrs. Kaiser's watch as a mementto. The inter-state fair, at Scranton, will commence tomorrow and continue until the 15th. Premiums and speed purses to the amount of $6,000 are offered. A short, fierce fire on Friday damaged the material and paper of the Plymouth Star to the amount of several hundred dollars. The loss is covered by insu rance. Eobert P. Reilly and Frank Deach, of Hazleton, will shoot a match at sparrows and wliipoorwills, with F. Cooper, of Mahanoy City, and E. T. Clayton, of Tamaqua. Fanny Seddons, an insane woman, who was transferred last week from the Danville aßylum to Laurytown, escaped from the latter place and has not yet been found. William Masters, lessee of the Excel sior slate quarry at Pen Argyl, was Btruck by a rubbish box on Friday and knocked a distance of forty feet to the bottom of the bank. He died in a few hours. Joseph Novack and Adam Smith, of Scranton, wanted to make a bargain on a Bhot gun on Thursday and took it out in the woods to try it. While there the gun was accidentally discharged and Smith was Bhot dead. A hole was found bored in the door of the safe of the Hazleton Mercantile Co., on Saturday morning. It is supposed to be the work of burglars, who were prob ably frightened off before they were able to complete the job. An exchange says that a fellow in a near-by town, who couldn't spare a dol lar and a half a year for a newspaper Bent fifty two-cent stamps to a down east Yankee to learn how to stop a horse from slobbering. He got the receipt and he'll never forget it: "To stop your horse from slobbering teach him to spit."

A TRIP TO THE FAIR, WHAT WAS SEEN AND DONE BY SOME FREELAND PEOPLE. A Description of the Hide and Sight* Seen llettveen Thin Place and Chicago —Niagara Falls Viewed—A Gliinp*e of Canada mid the Great City of the West. Leaving F reel.'i ml at 8.47 p. m. on the Ist inst., a party of three went to Ilazle ton, where we took a train at 10.30 for Mauch Chunk. At 11.30 p. m. we left the latter town and after making our selves as comfortable us is possible in a Lehigh Valley coach we enjoyed a neat little nap to IViikes-Barre. Here we got out to investigate and found the din ing room open. A couple of sandwiches and a few glasses of milk braced us up for the night, and after arranging sleep ing berths out of two seats each, we set tled down to enjoy a good night's sleep. At 4.20 a. in. we arrived at Sayre, and during our delay there made a tour of the train. We found the people laid out in every conceivable style—every body enjoying sleep according to their I own way of what they thought to be best. Through New York state the scenery was very fine, especially around Lake Cayuga, which was skirted along for a number of miles. At Batavia we parted company with the majority of the peo ple on our train. They went on to Buf falo and we took the Niagara branch, arriving there at 10.45 a. m., a few min utes behind time. Dinner was ordered at the Frontier House and while waiting we viewed the rapids and other parts of Niagara Falls city. A hearty meal came next. Then we crossed suspension bridge, took the electric car to the Falls on the Canadian side, and there saw enough to satisfy us for our entire trip. It is simply impos sible to describe the beauty and gran deur of the river as it drops so graceful ly and majestically over a precipice 333 feet high. We went to the very brink of the I Falls, far beyond the danger line, but were well repaid for wluUever risk we took. It is a sight not easily forgotten— either to view it from above or below. Those who wish to gaze at it from the bot tom can procure rubber suits, take the ele vatorand clamber over the slippery rocks until one is nlmost directly under the falling water. Along the river is Niagara Park, a large area of ground that is fixed up very prettily', and which shows that our Canadian brethren are more alive to the opportunities they possess to attract visi tors than the Americans. On the New York side very little interest appears to be taken in this great natural wonder, and Yankee ingenuity is being spent in devising plans whereby this great force can be utilized for practical purposes, in stead of spending money to add to its beauty. As our train on the Grand Trunk Railway was scheduled to leave at 2.25 p. m. we had to make haste to retrace our stps to the station. By missing the next electric ear down we found our time limited to ten minutes when we reached the bridge, and a hot race was then in order to catch the train. Those who saw us come across suspension bridge must have thought we committed some great depredation in Canada, but we had no time to explain that necessity compelled us to run, and on we went as if the honor of Pennsylvania depended upon our getting there. Breathless, covered with dust, hut with one minute to spare, we arrived at the station, picked out the softest seats in the cars and were ready to start. The Grand Trunk Railw ay othcials, however, were not quite so particular about the time of leaving, and after shifting and twisting us about from one track to an other for half an hour they crossed the river and on the Canadian side gave us another intermission of forty minutes. This, of course, was very pleasant to the three young men who broke all former running records in catching a train that Btarted one hour and ten minutes behind time. When they had finally concluded to go the train was divided into three sec tions of fourteen coaches each and at a snail-like pace the trip through Canada was begun. For miserable and monot onous riding, insolent trainmen and the worst railroad accommodations I have ever been unfortunate enough to endure, the Grand Trunk leads them all. No rsgard is paid to the time given on their time tables, and an easy-going go-as-you please rate of speed is maintained. Ontario, the part of Canada through which we rode, is poorly cultivated and far better looking farms and land can be seen in Butler valley. It is not level, principally little ranges of hills, and be yond the short view we had of Lake Ontario the route was very disappoint ing. Chose some other road is my ad vice to people who intend buying tickets to the fair. One hour and ten minutes late we reached Windsor, where all connected with the running 'of the train took an othorjsleep of three-fourths of an hour. At last they put the train on a steamboat and sent us over the Detroit river to the city of that name. The train was due there at 9.40 p. m. Itarrived there at 11.35 p. m., nearly two hours too late to connect with the west ern train on the Wabash road. At De troit we stayed until 1.40 a. m., and in spected the city at midnight. We found it, as it then appeared, to be a very clean and pleasant place, equipped with eyerything necessary for a city of its size, and having the finest system of electric street lighting I have ever seen. The remainder of the ride through portions of Michigan, Indiana and Illi nois was made without any particular interest, and we arrived in Chicago at 11.15 a. m. on Sunday, four hours later than we expected. When nearing the city the huge Ferris wheel and several of the fair buildings could be seen from the cars. Sunday afternoon was spent at Wash ington Park, where our party enjoyed a much-needed rest, and in the evening an hour or so was wliiled away in the dime museum. The surprise at seeing everything open on Sunday was not so very great, as we came from Freeland, but we had thought that saloons and theatres were all that would be in opera tion. It rather startled us to see carpen ters at work, buildings going up and work of every character being pushed without the least respect for the day. With the exception of the large retail places all the stores were qpen and did not close any earlier than week-day evenings. Monday was New York Day at the fair, and the Empire state did well, con sidering the fact that the jealousy arous ed by its failure to capture the exposi tion has not yet been buried. The peo ple of the metropolis were given full sway, and they gave the public the bene fit of an interesting programme. The fair on this day had to compete, how ever, with one of Chicago's annual festi vities—Labor Day parade, and the latter kept many thousands from Jackson Park, Like a great many more we chose to see ttie parade, and did not regret missing Now York Day. Chicago's orga nized workmen are a credit to the city, and with Mayor Harrison at their head they marched over the streets with more than 20,009 in the ranks. For two hours and twenty minutes they passed eight deep at a given point, and from Gover nor Aitgoid to the smallest newsboy all joined in rendering them the applause they earned so well. The display was the finest yet made by the workingmen of this city, and the absence of any so cialistic or anarchistic mottoes in the line caused much comment, as Ciiicago is known so well as the home of these people. In the next letter I will give our opin ion of Midway, the fair and the other attractions here. D. S. [Special telegram.]— The Keystone statu lias established an enviable reputa tion among state days at the fair by the grand display of Thursday. Our state commissioners took good care to import everybody and everything necessary to accomplish this, and, accordingly, with in the shadow of the state building, one of the handsomest and costliest on the ground, the glorious achievements of Pennsylvania in war and peace were thoroughly aired by eloquent orators. Fine weather prevailed during the day. The festivities commenced with a parade, in which Gov. Pattison, Lieut. I Goy. Watres, Adjutant General Green land, City Troop and Naval Reserve Battalion, of Philadelphia, took part. I The line was cheered and saiutedly almost continuously. Executive commissioner Farquhar spoke a few words, and then introduced Gov. Altgeld, of Illinois, who paid the state a tribute, He was followed by Rev. Hinkle, of Berwick Methodist church, in on invocation. Gov. Pattison delivered a spirited address, as did also James M. Beck, of Philadelphia, the orator of the day. The Wilkes-Barro male choir then occupied a few minutes singing, The exercises closed in the evening with a brilliant display of fireworks, in which a blazing keystone was the fea ture. D. S Lehigh W. C. T. V. Meets. The convention of the Lehigh County Women's Christian Temperance Union was held at Breinigsville Friday. The attendance was large. An address of welcome was delivered by Miss Rebecca Leipensberger, which was responded to by Miss Annie Rems, of Macungie. Mrs. A. T. Stover, of Allentown, made a report on unfermented wine. The following officers were elected: President, Mrs. A. J. Breinig; vice-presi dent, Miss Annie Rem; corresponding secretary, Miss Annie Baer; recording secretary, Mrs. W. B. K. Johnson; treasurer, Mrs. Ella Quinn. PLEASURE CALENDAR. September 15.—Picnic of Eckicy Social Club at Eckley grove, September 16.—Picnic of Mayherry band at Freeland Public park.

THINGS SEEN AND HEARD IN THE TOWN AND VICINITY. Matters of a Local Nature Commented Upon and Placed Before tlie Headers of the ••Tribune*' In Large Letters— Some Paragraphs May Interest You. The brilliant lights shining from the windows of the Min ing and Mechanical Istitute attracted my attention one evening last week and I went on a quiet tour in that direc tion. With a few nods to fami liar faces, as I peered into the mining department, and not wishing my errand to be known, I took a hasty glance into the Mechanical portion of the In stitute and then made my re treat to the street again. In both branches of the institu tion I found a large number of young men, each very busy working out some intricate problem that apparently defied solution. There are no draw backs of any kind connected with this institution. Every thing is neat and comfortable and nothing is left undone by the professor to advance his students. I cannot help but notice and with pleasure tlio efforts which are being made by the young men of this school, as well as by the students of Freeland and vicinity who are off at tending other schools, to ac quire an education. And as I count those over who have made the effort, I aso find that each one has had his ambition gratified in that particular direction. Of those who have tried and succeeded, the ma jority all have had the early morning call to go to the breaker in their boyhood days and it appears as if it was the bitter experience of those days which urged them on and kept them from faltering until they reached the long sought-for end. In many instances it is not only surprising to their com panions of boyhood days, but to themselves how they escap ed the drudge of a life on tho breaker or in the mines. If there is any secret about it is of a shallow nature, as almost every young man possesses the quality and I find that if tho energy and perseverance, which is such a grand feature of the Mining and Mechanical school, was studied and follow ed as an example, no surprise or secret could he connected with any pei-son's advancement in education. It will do the same for one as it has done for thousands if the effort is only made. To me it is a pitiful sight to see the little boys leaving town almost every morning for some breaker a mile or more distant, and some of them are so small that their dinner pails are a load for them to carry, to work all day for the paltry sum of 25 or 35 cents. The habit of sending hoys to work at such an early age is not so much from necessity as from custom, and I am of the opinion that it is one of the very worst cus toms ever introduced any where. Because when the boy becomes a man, he is without an education or a trade, and foreign immigration has so filled the land with common laborers that he is only a bur den to himself, and when he has once attained his majority the task to make a living be comes harder every day in this age of steam and electricity, Today it is not the ambition of any boy to graduate from the breaker, as in former years, and when he finds he is com pelled to do so his ambition to be anything more than an or dinary day laborer speedily vanishes. Many peoply cen sure and blame the Hungarians and Italians for coming here and crowding the boys out and reducing their wages. I am one, however, that cannot con cur in that sentiment, because the numerous young men who left Preeland and vicinity a week ago today to enter as students in the normal schools in different sections of the state, is ample evidence that the influx of foreigners did not injure them in any way, but drove them out to seek a cal ling which will be more profit able and less laborious, and from which they can look beak with thanks and sympathy upon the men of foreign birth who so materially assisted them in putting it within their grasp.

I have been a sufferer for a number of years with catarrh in its worst forms. Had constant headaches, matter drop ping in the throat, dizziness, nose stop ped up, difficulty in breathing and no doubt would soon have been a consump tive, had I not met Dr. Riegel. Before that time I had tried eyery well-known remedy and doctored with many physicians, not only of Hazleton but of New York and Philadelphia, but could get no relief anywhere. As soon as Dr. Kiegel began treating me I felt relieved and continued to improve until now I feel like a new man, and knowing that there are many others suffering as much as I did I write this for publica tion, so that others may avail them selves of Dr. Rirgcl'a treatment before it is too late, lie can cure you if you take it in time. I am willing to answer any letters of inquiry from persons wishing to consult him.
