Last Saturday being Uncle John D. BURN's birthday, the family planned a

and Aunt Mary may enjoy many returns of the day.
Saturday just before dinner our good friend, Will RITTER, was busy at work in
his field, when he had a call from a gentleman who was apparently anxious to
sell him a bill of goods. Will was about to run the supposed cloth peddler
out of the field, when looking the stranger squarely in the face, he recognized
his brother, A. E. RITTER, of Tiogo, Pa., whom he had not seen for 11 years,
who will remain a few days on a visit. Of course Will was pleased.
Akos VIZSOLYI, of the county of Tolna, Hungary, arrived Friday on a visit to
his uncle, L. E. ZICHY. He arrived in New York Sept. 1st. He, of course,
visited the World's Fair, and after a short stay with his uncle he will return to
Chicago, from thence he will start on a western tour, visiting all points of
interest along the Northern Pacific, especially the large flouring mills of
the twin cities, the large farms along the route, the National Park, and thence
to Oregon and California. From there he will go to Old Mexico and from thence
to Washington D. C., via New Orleans and Florida. He is a prominent land
holder in his country and is anxious to see the farming interests in this country.
