Danville has had some big Days in the past but one that eclipsed tuesday in the distinctive features that made the Day enjoyable and noteworthy. To be More definite probably. It was As a Lodge or fraternal event that tuesday occupies the fore most place with the chroniclers. To the Pennsylvania Odd Fellows Anniv Ersary association belongs the Honor of stirring up Dauville As it was never stirred before. Cantons lodges and encampments began to arrive with the Early morning trains Long before noon they were All Here representing the entire District embraced by the association Aud such a crowd. Density is scarcely the word to Deso Riho the condition. Congestion is the better term. Very Early in the Day the sidewalks on Mill Street were filled to their utmost capacity. At Many times the Street from curb to curb was blocked rank aug it diff moult for automobiles Aud other vehicles to get through there was Muslo everywhere hands in front bands in the rear hands passing out of sight Aud others coming into View. The weather conditions although not precisely what might have been de sired yet were not of a sort to interfere with lie Success of the event. The sky was overcast neatly All Day. A raw wind blew out of the East which made it slightly unpleasant for the those in the Parade found it just about right for Comfort. To sum up matters it might he said that the program so fully set Forth in these columns in our last Issue Vos fully carried out the crowd of visitors attracted to town is variously estimated at from s x to eight thou Sand people. In addition tiie entire town of Danville took a Holiday so that Dur us the Parade Aud Imit edit by following it there Weie massed on Mill Street a throng of at least fifteen thousand people. It was generally con it ded that yesterday s event was one of the biggest that Ever took place in Danville. How the people came. During the Forenoon four special trains came into Dauville Over the p.

Tim Parade was Oue feature of thu Day that easily surpassed any thing of the kit id that Ever took place in Danville. There were 25 h to 4000 marching men. It was a spectacle Worth going Miles to witness the Parade was probably viewed to the Best advantage from the elevated portion of Mill Street South of Mahoning Street. Without exception the members of the order presented a line appear auce Aud Cue could not hut he impressed with the apparent Worth Aud manhood of tiie men neatly and attractively uniformed without tiie least Embla Uca of disorder they marched Over the Long route. The same Good order Ami discipline was maintained during the eur tire Day. This was Aii the More remarkable considering the multitude Quot of men embraced. Company of 12th regiment n. G. P., acted a a an escort and presented a very attractive appearance in their dress uniforms then followed chief marshal or Jno. Sweisfort chief of staff Thomas g. Vincent Aud the aides. The four divisions followed made up of the different cantons lodges and in cat Puu its. The banners were very Beautiful and along wit i the uniforms especially those of the patriarchs militant were much admired by the vast cuu course of sightseers. The Musio was indeed a inspiring feature. In the Long Parade the bands As they followed each other at regular intervals discoursing choicest music seemed to be the one feature that was needed to Crown the event with Success. It was after the Parade however when the bands consolidated and with the Catawissa baud As Leader, from Bloom Street up to the court House that the feature of music Rose to Heights that were positively Sublime. The effect of the ear was one that should have been lie Aid to have been appreciated while the column wit i its banners and glittering instruments filling the Street from curb to cur baud moving in wave like urdu lations presented a spectacle that will linger in the memory for Many a Day.

As citizens of Danville we ar6 proud of our town our town is justly proud of its Odd Fellows. We sincerely Hope that during i the Dauville Susquehanna league team opened its season on the flue new Ball Park that has been built this Spring by the Danville athletic association tuesday afternoon. The game was wit i the Sunbury of Atlantic league team and proved an easy Victory for the locals to the tune of 10 to 2. A Large crowd was present for the opener Aud the grounds had All the appearance of a gala occasion. The Cata Eltsa baud was in attendance and Ope Neil the festivities with tiie no Rioual a them during which everybody ought to have stood. Danville cinched tiie Day first time at Bat by pounding out five Ruus. Sunbury never caught up. Two More in Tho second a single Oue in tie Fourtly Aud two in the eighth completed Danville a tally. Sunbury was blanked until tiie Fourtly when Moorehead a two Bagger started a Romp that netted tiie visitors one Point. In the eighth Aimes put Oue Over tiie Fence tiie first of the new grounds totalling two for Sudbury. Mccloud pitched a Fine game.

Tag Day is a new institution in Danville and if the Buiu realized is not so Large As some had in mind the partial failure is to be attributed to Lack of experience in this particular method of obtaining contributions from the Pablo. There was no end of difficult and exacting work connected with tag Day and those who were in any Way connected with the proposition Are credited with discharging their duty to the Best of their ability. The Central committee consisting of mrs. T. J. Price mrs w. L. Sidler mrs. O. M. Leniger Aud mrs. Edward per per were on hand at the Headquarters in the Brown building Early in the Day and remained on duty until night. In All there were 116 taggers employed. Many of these were very Young Aud naturally did not possess the tact that enabled them to approach All classes of persons with equal Success. The most inexperienced and , Laboured diligently and conscientiously and Are entitled to much credit for the part they played on the occasion of Quot tug the largest sums were collected by the misses Isabella Aud Mario Schoch $22.71� and $17.26, respectively. The next highest was 1.08, collected by miss Minnie Cohen the next in order was $6.97, collected by miss Margaret Vincent. Fliers who obtained $6 and a fraction a re Bobby Ervin and the misses Pauline and Alice Waite. A few things relating to tag Day Hove been Learned by experience and if this inc Dond of raising Money should Ever to employed in Danville in the future it is Likely that a few changes will he inaugurated. Very few persons at All approachable escaped being tagged on tuesday. Among the contents of the boxes however were found thousands of pennies and As nearly As Many Nickels which suggests that a Large number of persons did not. Pay very liberally for the privilege of wearing a tag. Fire quickly extinguished Danville. 5 2 0 1 0 0 0 2 x�?10 san Burn 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 1 0�?2 two ohm hits Layberger Umlauf. Moorehead.
