great variety of flags, in number equal,
perhaps, to the kinds of uniforms

among them was the yellow flag bear

over the first flagship of the patriot
navy. A more appropriate enslgu for

But once the colonies had declared
their independence a new flag was
needed, and it was developed from the
old one of the Royal Savage. Wash

thirteen stripes to represent the t
tecu States were retained, and th
uuion of thirteen white stars on a blue
field, a constellation that was to
astound the astronomers of politics in
more ways than one, tock the place of
the British Union.
The exact time when the flag was
unfurled over the halls of Congress is
not a matter of record, but when it was
first blackened with the smoke of bat
tle we know right well. While Betsy
Ross was stitching the Hag together
Burgoyne was marching down through
the wilderness by thc way of Lake
Champlain to meet the British army
that was to come up the Hudson from
New York. To aid in crushing the
patriots that, under Schuyler, were op
posing Burgoyne, St. L-vrer.was sent
with 1700 men, chiefly Tories and
Indians, to... Oswego. : .whence he

how the patriotic general, Kicliouu

raged; Colouel v.'IMett sallied from the
fort, drove the British from their camp,
captured flags, papers and baggage,
and returned in triumph. It was a
splendid sortie and it was made under
the flag. A most curious combination
of buutlng was that flag. The white
stripes and stars were cut from sol
dier's shirts, the blue' field was made
from a cloak captured from the British
down beyond the Hudson, and the red
stripes were made from the petticoat of
one of the women in the garrison.

he hoisted thc British flags on a staff
above the fort with this new constella

One would like to dwell on the ex
ploits of John Paul Jones, who hoisted
the flag on the Ranger. "That flag and
I are twins. Born the same hour from
the same womb of destiny," ts he used
to say, because Congress ordered bini
to the Ranger at the time it established
the flag. But of him it can be said
only that on February 14, 1778, he
sailed the Ranger with ber flag flying
through the French fleet in the harbor
of Brest and had the satisfaction of
seeing the flag, foi- the first time, re
ceive a national salute* from a foreign
ship of war.
One may note that the fla^ was seen
flying in the Thapies on February 3,
1783, before the treaty of peace had

the fight began.

At last the firing died down, and the ?

that had stood upon the hills. For flic ;
battle was.over and no one there could [
tell how it had ended. For a few mo- J

smoke of battle drifted slowly from
around the ships, until a single tall j
mast appeared and then a patriot on
Cumberland Mead began to shout. A
moment later the whole throng there
saw the stars and stripes fluttering
from that masthead above the smoke
cloud, and with voices that were heard
across the bay and over on the green
hills of Vermont they told that Mac

That flag waving alone above the
cloud of smoko told the story of a na

THE FIRST PATRIOTIC SONG.
BY HELEN BROWN.
The Puritans ol' England held music
in no very high esteem. They held
in abhorrence "piping with organs,
singing, ringing and trowling of psalms
from one side of the choir to the other,"
as complained of in their protest to
Parliament. In fact, their fanaticism
bred so much hatred for such things
that tliey came to look upon music
as positively unchristian. So the Pil
grims brought 1o America with them
the stylo of music that prevailed when
they left trje mother country, which
goes without saying that it was not of
the most inspiring, cheering kind.
The generation preceding the Revolu
tion is referred to as the "Psalm-sing
ing generation." Tho Colonies were
absorbed witli the task of revising
and republishing the Psalms.
In 1713 nu organ was introduced into
Boston, but the prejudice was so great
that the instrument remained unpacked
in thc porch of the church for seven
Up to this lime there had been no
native compositions, but a little later
on the first coraposilious were the work
of ono William Billings, a tanner by
trade. As Psalm-singing still prevailed
his first production was the "New Eng
land Tsalm Singer," which was fol
lowed by "Singing Master's Assistant"
and "Music in Miniature." His later
works were of a patriotic order and
it ls duo to this fact that they became
so popular. His "Lamentations Over

"What is a diamond tree?"
"It is a tree where diamonds grow,
"No. Seriously. What is it?"
The jeweler smiled.
"Well," he said, "a diamond tree ls
a swindle, a very profitable swindle,
and one that can be carried on for
ever with mighty little risk of de
tection. I'll explain it to you.
"I am a jeweler and you bring me
a diamond ring for repairs. I take
the diamond out of your ring and I
put back in its place a similar dia
mond that is a little? a very little,
smaller. You, naturally, don't dis

. "The same day a brooch is brought
to me and since the central stone of
thc brooch is a little larger than your
diamond. I get rid of yours and keep
the bigger gem. In this way, four or

exchanges, keeping always a better
stone than I part with.
"On good diamond trees, diamonds
as small as pin heads have been
known to grow to the size of peas in
two days. A good tr?e, tco, won't
have only one diamond growing on
it at a time. A dozen stones or more
will be simultaneously increasing in

Breaking Eggs for a Living.
A correspondent of a contemporary,
who has been searching for the most
monotonous method of earning a liv
ing, decides in favor of that of crack
ing eggs. "I met a man who said
he was a biscuit manufacturer on a
largo scale, and was rather inclined
to boast about the number of eggs
which his firm bought in the course
of a year. Now, it seems that to avoid
calamity five eggs are broken into a
! i -1 at a time before being added to
wie common stock. There are men,
he told me, who do nothing but crack
eggs. They become so expert that a
man can dispose of a thousand an
hour, or ten thousand a day."
