Inteluge:;t observers of passing polii-ioal cvonta will not fail to note that on "Democratic Day" at the Grangers1 Iet^r-state IMcnic, the attendance was about one half what it was on 'Republican Day," which followed. This is about the way ibe thing will run at tho polls, notwithstanding all the wild talk about the breaking away of Pennsylvania Republican agriculturists this year from tlio support of the Stat 3 ticket.

In many places the sticky deposit was four feet deep, and it required weeks of hard labor to remove it.

Lock Llayoa was founded by thit eccentric as well as active land speoulator. �lerry Churoh, about 183-1, and the wonder in that it was not called Chnrohtown. But as it was at tho head of oanal navigation on the river, it took the name of Lock Haven, because a safe plaoo for canal boats to ride at anohor (?') was afforded in the pool of the dam. And although its font: tier only died in 1S74, the only momoria1 remaining tn perpe" uatc hie name is Church street. The population of the City is now ,\ *,ri lie over 7,000. Aud although it do^s not make rapid growth, it is solid and bids fair to reach tenor fiftoon thuusand by the time the century elosas. Had the railroad shops been looatcd hero instead of at Keuovo, tho city would now contain fif teen tDousand, That these shops Bhonld have been built here ia now plainly soen, but it is too late to remedy the error. The plant at Renovo has cost such a vast sum that it cannot be removed. And whilst its romoval would destroy the mountain borough, Lock Haven can manage to get along without it. There aro many residouts of Lock Ha-von, both professional and business men, who arc noted for their enterprise, good cheer and hospitality. Among the bank ers Col. "William A.

The great flood of June 1, \WJ, completely destroyed the plaoo, by carrying away the buildings and washing trio grounds so badly as to render tbem unfit for camping purposes. McElhattan, however, is equally as appropriate for a uanie as Wayne. The creel; whioh runs by tho grounds, and whioh destroyed them by its groat overflow, takes its name from William McElhattan, who was the first white settler.

Tho ring was pitched at Mourn City, Ark., about five miles from Mem phis, and about 1100 people witnessed Untight. The men entered the ring weigh ing 123 pounds each. Bronnan was train ed down until ho looked liko a raco horse, whilo Danforth looked heavy and fat and it was evident he lacked training. Eigb.-, rounds were fought and although Dan-torth seemed to be tho more scientific of the two and always got the beet of the windup in each round, yet Brennan scoured the first knock down in the firs'-, round aud first blood in the second. Breu-nan fought cautiously and on tho defensive up to the last round. Brennan all through the fight was evidently saving himself and trying to wind his opponent and receiving severe punishment from Dan-forth's heavy right which he took quiotly and with great endurance Iu tho eighth aud final round Brennan appeared fresh and strong and wore a confident look while Danforth was shaky. Thoy sparred for a few minutes for an opening when "Reddy" made a rush for Dauforth, dealing him a terrible right hand upper cut over the ioft eye, following it with a heavy blow on the neck, which laid tho Streator light weight out. It was considered a great victory for young Breuuan, as Danforth is really the first prizo-fightor of auy note he has fought. After the tight Danfoith offered to fight Bronuau hero again, within three weeks, for a purse of $500, but Brounan's baokors have not yet decided to accept. MIm Flo? Crowell To-Nljrht.
