Jolly Coterie Boys Getting Ready.

New York, 1895

The jolly boys of the Springfield Coterie are getting ready for their annual festival. August 7th is the day fixed upon, and Phillips' Sea Side Pavilion is the place. Get your bibs and tuckers ready, girls. Special train and clambake, dancing all day, and a moonlight ride. Make a note of the date — August 7.

Militiamen on Bicycles.

Capt. Frank N. Bell, of the Seventeenth Separate Company of the National Guard, of Flushing, has a squad of thirty of his men mounted on bicycles. Drills are held every week. Bugler Charles Mowler executes the different calls.
