Will Celebrate July Fourth in Patriotic Manner
Special to The Inquirer

GIBBSTOWN N.J. July 2 - One of the features of the Fourth of July celebration here will be taken by the Italian element, who are sparing neither pains nor expense. These people have employed a large Italian band, will have several floats, and a section will be uniformed. At the flag raising an Italian flag will float from the 100-foot pole along with the 30 foot American flag. At the conclusion of the parade Dr. Fitzgeorge, of Camden, will make an address to be followed by sports of all kinds for which fine prizes are offered the winners. There will be a dance at the club house in the evening.

For those of you who enjoy this blog...
Happy Fourth of July!
