Everybody Was Satisfied. Tho balloon may havo boon an attraction, and tho high wire porformor also, but tho most popular entertainment at tho big Pomona day uololini- tion Thursday was that of Htandingjin line for a drink of ion water at ' tho many barrels and fountains HO generously supplied for tho occasion. Tho "HUM of noon" looked down on Pomona with mich a broad Hinilo Hint, it WHH similar to being employed as a (Iroman on an ocean linor. Tho Ar- gUH man \VIIK well entertained however and (tan say with all sincerity that Pomona had tho right idea in working HO hard for (.his affair.
