R. Fare round trip, $1.50. Fill your lunch baskets and take your family for a day’s outing on the mountain top. Night Blooming CereusWe had the pleasure last evening, along with a large number of other people, of witnessing a night blooming Cereus in all its gaudy beauty. It was at the residence of Rev. Gibson, and the cactus plant which took a notion to robe itself in glory, was nursed and nurtured by Harry Gibson, who takes much pride in these things. We will not attempt to describe the flower, as it must be seen to be appreciated. Suffice it to say that Solomon in-all-his glory was not arrayed like one of these. The Fire Company’s Picnic The picnic to be given at Rhododendron Park by the Punxsutawney Fire Company on Thursday, August 9, promises to be the event of the season. Two excursion trains will leave this place for the grounds — one at 8 and the other at 9 o’clock a.m. The fare for the round trip will be $1.50. As the proceeds are to be used to purchase equipments for the fire company, our citizens are taking an unusual interest in the affair, and a very large crowd is expected to take advantage of this opportunity to drive the cloud of care away and revel in the joys of the festive occasion. Tickets for sale at all the drug stores.Punxsutawney, PANo author availableWay Back WhenPunxsutawney Spiriturn:publicid:dailypress.com:9049Change0Usable2014-07-20T22:41:23-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:9045Police investigating death of female, 252014-07-18T22:29:11-04:002014-07-18T22:29:11-04:00Copyright 2010 Punxsutawney SpiritBorough Police said there was a separate incident that occurred on Thursday in the Groundhog Plaza parking lot, where a female was found unconscious.Punxsutawney, PANo author availablePolice investigating death of female, 25Punxsutawney Spiriturn:publicid:dailypress.com:9045Change0Usable2014-07-18T22:29:11-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:9044Clarion County Fair coming this way2014-07-18T23:02:17-04:002014-07-18T22:17:03-04:00Copyright 2010 Punxsutawney SpiritThe fair, which will be held at the Redbank Valley Municipal Park, will have all the regular attractions, plus plenty of other features — including a first-ever appearance by local band The Clarks — to bring folks in and keep them entertained.For details, pick up Saturday's edition of The Spirit.Punxsutawney, PANo author availableClarion County Fair coming this wayPunxsutawney Spiriturn:publicid:dailypress.com:9044Change0Usable2014-07-18T22:17:03-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:9036Shed destroyed in Thursday fire2014-07-17T22:46:59-04:002014-07-17T22:46:59-04:00Copyright 2010 Punxsutawney SpiritCrews contained the fire to the shed, but it was completely destroyed.
