Talk of a Coming Iron Famine.
In a recent paper Professor N. S.
Shaler of Harvard treats of the world's
supply and consumption of metals and
predicts the exhaustion of some of the
great iron beds of Europe and the
United States within a period measur
able by decades. The Idea is not rad
ical, for Andrew Carnegie has ex
pressed the belief that the exhaustion
of the high grade ores in this country
is a question of only a few decades. It
is a fact that we are using the present
stores with vast prodigality, that the
waste in manufacturing is nearly one
fourth, and yet only a small part of
the world is using iron to any great
When the great ore beds of the pres
ent are exhausted, the only recourse
now in sight will be to work in small
er deposits, more costly in operation,
and to use ores which are now deemed
worthless. Prices will necessarily soar
and iron be counted a precious metal.
If steel buildings continue in favor and
railroad development is kept up, civ
ilized man will be forced in the near
future to discover a substitute for iron

W. P. CHASE,
According to John Adams, It Should
Be July 2.
On the 3d of July, 1776, John Adams,
then one of the representatives of Mas
sachusetts in the Continental congress,
wrote to his wife Abigail:
"Yesterday the greatest question was
decided which was ever debated in
America, and a greater perhaps never
was nor will be decided among men."
In a second letter, written the same
day, he said:
"But the day is past. The 2d of July
will be the most memorable epocha in
the history of America. I am apt to be
lieve that it will be celebrated by suc
ceeding generations as the great anni
Tersary festival. It ought to be com
memorated as the day of deliverance
by solemn acts of devotion to God Al
mighty. It ought to be solemnized
with pomp and parade, with shows,
games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and
illuminations from one end of this con
tinent to the other from this time for
When the resolution was taken Up on
the 2d, all the states, except New York,
voted to accept it Thus, on the 2
day of July, 1776, the independence
of the thirteen united colonies from
the throne of Great Britain was defi
nitely decided upon. The 2d, and not
the 4th, may be called the true date of
the separation. We could with propri
ety celebrate the Fourth two days ear
lier. That the participants in the work
considered the 2d as the true date is
shown by the letters written by John
Adams, quoted at the beginning of the
article. The popular fancy, however,
seized upon the 4th, the date of accept
ance of Jefferson's more dramatic dec
laration of the reasons for the sepa
ration, as the proper day to celebrate
The debate npon the document was
continued until the afternoon of the
4th, and, says Jefferson, might have
run on interminably at any other sea
son of the year. But the weather was
oppressively warm, and the hall in
which the deputies sat was close to a
stable, "whence the hungry flies
swarmed thick and fierce, alighting on
the legs of the delegates and biting
hard through their thin silk stockings.
Treason was preferable to discomfort,"
and at last the delegates were brought
to such a state of mind as to agree to
the Declaration without further amend
It is a mistake to suppose that the
document was signed by the delegates
on that day. It is improbable that any
signing was done save by John Han
cock, the president of the congress, and
Charles Thomson, the secretary.Paul

HEAT AND TANNED SKINS.
The Miracle That Nature Performs
"When Snnbcrn Occurs.
There are certain arctic animals,
dark coated in the short summer, that
in winter turn pure white, thus match
ing the snow covered landscape and
escaping notice and harm.
This change of color, this protection,
effected no one knows how, is wonder
ful, as wonderful as a miracle, and
yet a kindred change of color, a kin

When the pale city people go out in
the summer sun at the seashore or the
mountains the light attacks them
fiercely, first reddening their skin,
then swelling, blistering and scorching
it If they kept in the sun enough,
and if no miracle occurred, the light
would kill them finally, burning off
the skin first and afterward attacking
the raw flesh.
But a miracle does occur. The skin
changes from a pale color to a tan and
on this tan the sun has no effect. The
sun may beat on tan colored skin for
days and weeks, but such skin remains
always sound, unbhstered, whole.
Thus nature works a .miracle. The
white skin is suffering, and nature,
aware, somehow, that a tan skin is
sun proof, changes to tan the white.
How does she do this? Where did^she
learn that it was wise to do thi&W No
one knows. Only the fact of the
