the groum.tt information had come
to the memhus ot the executive ootn
mittee having iu i h rge the colebra-
lioo that an i tteuipt would likely be
made to conduct "blind pljfs" in the
adjoining wows hot the stringent
measures t.ik u scared out the fellows
and they worn to other celebrations.
As a prccant on sumo plain clothes
men were ug'ig.id to stroll through
the adjoining wood from time to
time o look lor tllioit liqoor sellers
aud to provide agaiimt contingencies.
Arthur KIIim, J. R. Wells, A. M.
Jess and N A. Stanley were ap
pointed marshals bat they had noth
ing to do only stand around and
look pleasant aud once in a while
admonish a boy to take his fire
crackers to tht p;rt of the grounds
apart for noise purposes, 'lhe teams
were kept off tue main grounds and iu
a part of the grove for their use aud
this work was carefully attended to by
Eiuil Centner. Sootl Robinson, and
K. A. Humtpou.
A noticeable foatoro of the day was
that there wer not a multitude of
babies crying aud disturbing the
apeiikcrH ami xiiiKera and annoying
nervous batchelors. And this was not
due to there Icing no babies pr seut
for the little ones were there in force,
but they were t.io comfortable to have
occasion to cry. That the babies
had their C" itifort attended to was
due to the thoughtfulueis of the
ladles rf the r. t room committee,
Mrs. John If. Kohinson, Mrs. Adeline
Clone. Mih. Hlmlicl Robiusoii and
Mrs. E. Krioksoii. Theite ladies had
a large lent erected on the grounds
aud lud il furni-hed with coti, eii-y
chairs, bains. water, towels and
other toilet cony, uieuces and plenty ot
cool drinking w.tter for the free ue
of tired moili rs and weury Indies.
That no mother and baby should fail
Io have an opi rtun.ty to tiki a quiet
rest, thrt lad i. s of the c miuiittce
would make tiips about the grouuds
and look ui Moiuen having young
I'liil.ln-n ami invite them to bring the
little ones to the ret tent so they
could take a sleep while the mothers
oould be tree io enjoy the pleasures,
of the day. During the afternoon the
rest lent li keil like a baby show in !
rooi. A tent iu which people could
place lunch I askets and wraps was
another convenience on the grounds, j
Anotht r innovation that was highly!
appreciated s that no firecrackers
or other expl. sives were allowed on I
the main grounds, a separate section '
of the grounds Isiing given over to the

these were greatly appreciated by
the audience. The invocation wai
given by ReT. fcW. B. Pepper, pastor
of the M. E. Church at Wilderville,
and the Declaration of Independence
wa read io a most effective manner
by Miss Emma Lou?hridge, of (irants

Agricultural College. Dr. Kerr de

three'groops, one dressed iu red, one

much to interest the of the occasion.
Two hours were spent at noon by

time and eating lunch from well
filled baskets The extensive grove
and chady nooks by the creek side
afforded delightful places for groans of
friends to gather aud while away the
The afternoon exercises orened
with a concert of half an hour by the
Rogue River Baud that drew a large
crowd about the speaker's staud. The
Orants Pass orchestra then gave some
fine selections that won hearty en
cores from the audleuce. The ad
dress for the afternoon program was
given by J. J. Johnson, lecturer of
the Oregon State Orange. The topic
of Mr. Johnson's address waa the
