Peak Family of Bell Ringers

The Peak Family of Bell Ringers are chiming away merrily in old Keystone State.  They ring in the quarters at Harrisburg on the 9th and 10th, and at Lancaster on the 11th and 12th, and open in Baltimore on the 15th.  They then continue with a downward tendency toward New Orleans, where they are engaged for the Christmas and New Year holidays.  The two troupes are now united and stand well together with a force numbering fifteen people.  Miss Fanny has entirely recovered from her severe illness at Albany, and the troupe have thereby recovered a valuable (belle) ringer.  D.D. Fitz is the business manager of the now happy family.
