CANTON'S GREATEST, DAY
PASSES INTO HISTORY.
Civic and Military Parade Followed byjthe
Dedication of the Cannon:
Fireworks on the ShorlFarm Viewed by Thousands of Citizens
A Sweltering Day That Caused Mucli. Suffering Presi
dent Forced to Take a Place High In the Stand
to Avoid the Exercise ol Hand-Shaking.
Tho dedicatory exercises were ob
served July 4 following the re
viewing of the parade by the president
and the distinguished guests from the
reviewing stand. When the last or
ganization In the long procession had
passed the stand the president quickly
stepped down to the awaiting carrlago
and with others waB driven to the
speakers stand erected on the city hall
lawn. The direct beating of the sun's
rays Into the face of the speakers
caused a short delay and consequent
request that the addresses be delivered
from the doorway of tho government
building across the street. Chairs were
procured and the party of speakers
walked over and occupied tho front
door and corridor of the building.
The exercises opened with prayer by
Y Itev. John A. Hall of Trinity Lutheran
church. Judge "William It. Day, as
president of the day, followed with a
short address of Introductory remarks.
He said that the day was observed
as the country's day, and all party dif
ferences should be thrown aside and
forgotten on this day. He said that 124
years ago the fathers of the republic
declared for the Independence of the
United States of America, and that
the colonies, feeble and scattered,
threw off the yoke of allegiance to a
foreign ruler and dedicated their coun
try to the cause of self-government by
the people. He said their paths were
strewn with strong odds and untold
suffering and sacrifice In maintaining
the republic, but with wisdom seldom
equalled In the councils of men, the
states adopted a federal constitution,
and under that Instrument the people
have proved capable of governing their
country In peace and war. He spoke of
the sanguinary civil war and those
preceding It, and tho recent conflict.
He said that In the realm of Interna
tional law this country has set a new
and high example to the nations of the
earth. The recent struggle, he said,
Added a new and glorious page to our
history, and has again demonstrated
the valor and efficiency of the American
people, soldiers and sailors, putting out
the dying ember of the fires of sectional
hate and that America Is united today
as never before.
"When the war came no community
responded more gallantly than our own.
In recognition of the gallantry, of our
volunteers the secretary of the navy
has given In trust to this city one of the
guns of tho enemy captured at Santi
ago. We dedicate It today In honor of
our brave countrymen, the soldiers and
sailors of that war from Stark county.
It shall be a perpetual memorial of
their devotion to patriotic feeling and
love of .country. It testifies riot only
to the victory of tho American army,
but ns well to the surrender of Spanish
rule on American soil. It stands for
the surrender of tho last vestige ,of
that noveielgnty which oncedomlnated
the western world, for the victory of
freo Institutions in tho irrepressible
conflict between opposing systems of
government on this continent; for the
surrender of 'oppression and tyranny to
a people, the foundations of whose
temple are liberty ,and self-government!
for tho surrender of royalty to
republicanism, of a government of the
few to a government which follows
the law fully, expressed will of the ma
jority. "Today .lot us renew our vows of de
votion to our country, and let us re
joice that we are citizens of the great
republic, remembering, that our country
will bo what its citizens make' It. We,
ha'e no causo for fear tho past at
least is secure. Wo may look to 'the
future with a courage born of difficul
ties met and overcome. Today let us
J look at the Hag and rejoice that It rep
j resents our heritage."
Hon. Charles Krichbaum vtas intro
duced by Judge Day, and the Declara
tion of Independence was read, as has
been customary on such occasions In
The formal presentation of the
cannon was then made by Cap
tain William M. Folger, of the.
U. S. N., through the reading of a let
ter from Secretary John D.' Long, ad
dressed to Mayor Robertson, In which
he expressed his regret at being unable
to be present and expressing he
pleasure of tho navy department In
presenting the tmnnon to tie city.
The acceptance address was delivered
by Mayor Robertson, who referred to
the day when, local soldiers departed
for the scene of conflict In Cuba, about
two years ago, and of their patriotic
service there. He said the people of the
city, as well as the Spanish-American
veterans extended their gratitude to
the navy department for the loan of
the cannon. His address ,was very
The dedicatory address was deliver
ed by Hon. William A. Lynch of this
city, who was Introduced by Judge
Day In a most happy and conspicuous
manner, as a man who needed no intro
duction and whom all would be pleased
to hear. Mr. Lynch arose and address
ed himself to the audience for a period
of at least half an hour. He dwelt
upon the declaration of Independence,
which had Just been read In hearing,
and the acts of tho colonists leading to
s the declaration by the colonial con
gress. Ho spoke in detail of the contro
versy which existed between the colo
,, nlstB who settled In. this country to te
V cure o, home of their own, finally arising
agalnut the unjust rulings of qreat
Britain, resulting In a controversy be-
tween America and that country a,
quarter or a century autrwaro. e
emphasized the lessons which the
American revolution taught, and of the
lessons taught by the recent controver
sy between America and Spain, and
the rising In ascendancy of this country
as a nation of power. The address was
patrlotlo and reviewed the civil history
'of the country from the colonists to
tho prpsent day.
At this Juncture the Grand Army
band, which remained Just outside the
government building, struck up a pat
riotic air, which was the musical selec
tion rendered during the program.
Rev. O. B. Mllllgan, of tho First Pres
byterian church, pronounced the ben
ediction at the close of the program.
Tho large crowd outside did not ap
pear gratified without an address from
tho president, and thero were frequent
calls for the chief executive, who sat
Just inside the door fanning himself,
and occasionally waving his fan at
some outsider who called to htm.
Tho president arose and stepped to
the front of the door-step and made a
short address, saying:
"My fellow-citizens: I will not con
sent to prolong these exercises beyond
expressing my acknowledgment to you
for your generous call and expressing
as well the pleasure which I have had
In Joining with my neighbors and fel-Iow-cltlzens

1776, In thelclty of Philadelphia, advan

effective in the formation of the
federal union in 1787, sustained
by a united peoplo In every
war that waged against a foreign
power, upheld by the wonderful sacri

sealed In solemn covenant at Appa
mattox Court House, sanctified within
tho last two years by the best blood of
the north and the men of the south,
at Manila and Santiago and In Porto
Rico. Theso sacred principles still ani
mate the American heart and still hold
their force and virtue.
"And adhering to them as wo have
always adhered to them, at any cost or
at any sacnrice, we find ourselves after
124 years formed Into a more perfect
union, stronger and freer than ever
before, strengthened In every one of
the great fundamental safeguards and

liberty and equality, and carrying to
our distant possessions the blessings of

present, and extending their wishes for
a successful and patrlotlo culmination
of the day. Mr. Harter, In a most elo
quent manner, then Introduced Judgo

the address by the mayor, Ofilcer Wil

CIVIC AND MILITARY.
The Altornoon Parade Was One
Of the Finest Ever Seen
Under the glare of a sizzling sun the
great mllltnry and civic parade moved
up tho street on Wednesday afternoon
about 2 o'clock. Tho procession when
complete made a lino nearly two miles
long. It reached from Second street
on North Cleveland avenue, up to Lnlce,
over to Market and down again to Sec
ond street on Market. It wai the most
extensive parade of the kind that has
ever been given In this city, beyond a
doubt. Every one had taken pains to
make the event a success and their
efforts were highly satisfactory.
The procession was headed with n
squad of V. M. C. A. boys, twenty-one
strong, Who stretched across tho street
and opened the way. The lads were
dressed in white duck' trousers with
white duck caps for headgear, and
they made quite a swell appearance.
MaJorCharles R. Miller with his al
followed closely, and a group of old
Cuban warriors on horseback brought
the first flag along the lino. Thaysr'a
band with inspiring music marched
next, and following the band came
coaches with committees. The New
Berlin band headed a delegation of
Canton Spanish-American war veter
ans headed by General Dick. There
were about 80 of the boys in line.
After the Spanish-American soldiers
had passed, the Eighth regiment with
Us full staff of officers and complement
of men, followed. The regiment was In
full uniform and the march was a
hard one. Hardly a soldier In the en
tire regiment had any dry clothing on
when It was finished. The hot nun was
also very hard on the bova and when
thV regiment was drawn up for review

FOR WOMAN'S HEALTH
Earnest Letters from Women Be
llovod of Pain by Mrs. Plnkbam,
"Dear Mbs. 1'inkham : Before I
comtnonccd to take your medicine I
was in a terrible state, wishing myself
dead a good many times. Every part
of my body seemed to pain in somo
way. At time of menstruation my
suffering was something terrible. I
thought there was no euro for mo, but
after taking several bottles of Lydia
E. l'lnkham's Vcgetablo Compound all
my bad feelings wero gone. 1 am now
well and enjoying good health, I shall
always praise your medicine." Mrs,
Amos Ff.sculeh, Vox 220, Homco, Mich.
Female Troubles Overcome
" Dear Mns. 1'inkham : I had female
trouble, painful menses, and kidney
complaint, also stomach trouble. About
a year ago I happened to pick up a
paper that contained an advertisement
of Lydia E. l'lnkham's Vegetable Com
pound, and when I read how It had
helped others, I thought it might help
me, and decided to givo it iv trial. I
did so, and as a result am now feeling
perfectly well. 1 wish to thank you for
the benefit your medicine has 'been to
me." Mbs. Clara Stirrer, Diller, Neb.
No riore Pain
"Dear Mrs. Pinkiiam : Your Vcgo
tablo Compound has been of much
benefit to mo. When my menses first
appeared they wero very irregular.
They occurred too often and did not
leave for a week or more. I always
suffered at theso times with terrible
pains in my back and abdomen. Would
be in bed for several days and would
not be exactly rational at times. 1
took Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and menses became regular
and pains left mo entirely." Mrs. E.

Tho Uniformed Rank K. of P. with
about CO men, was out In full regalia,
and with their white plumes and glis
tening swords made d very attractive
appearance, but they paid for It with
the sweat of their faces.
The Citizens' band of Mineral Point
led the American Mechanics. Tho me
chanics outnumbered all other societies
In the procession and were only out
numbered by the Eighth regiment.
There were about 100 from out of tho
city In the parade and 2G0 from Canton.
The Mechanics carried umbrellas which
looked well and saved them somewhat
from the heat of tho sun. The mall
carriers fifty strong were In line In uni
form and following them came the
Grand Army band. It Is needless to
say anything about the music of this
part of the parade. Tho fact that the
Grand Army furnished It guarantees its
The Knights of St. John with swords
and plumes made a very pleasing ap
pearance and they were followed by the
C. M. B. A.
The Magnolia band headed th'e "Maine
club, a squad of lads In blue and white
costumes of the sailor style. Then came
the Daughters of Ben Hur In a picnic
wagon led by a pair of chariots.
The Waynesburg band was at the
head of the Pleetfoot Tribe of Red
Men, This lodge carried off' the honors
of tho day for going to the greatest
trouble In making preparations for tho
event. They had thirty or more men on
horseback arrayed as Indians nnd sev
eral floats brought up the rear of their
display In which the wigwam, tho for
est, and other typical haunts of tho
red men were splendidly shown.
The parado was carried out practi
cally according to the program. Tho
lines formed without a nltch and moved
off up North Cleveland avenue. At
Lake street they crossed to Market and
went south to Cedar and then back to
Cleveland avenue. The line of march
then went up Cleveland avenue again
to tho city hall where tho procession
was disbanded. When the Eighth regi
ment came up South Cleveland avenuo
It was stopped and drawn up In line
to review the balance of the procession
as It came up.
(One of the principal features of tho
event was having the procession re
viewed by the president and other no
tables 'in the city. Tho president and
party arrived at the reviewing stand at
about 1:30 o'clock. President McKlnley
took his position at the front of the
stand between Judge Day and William
A. Lynch, and it was not long till the
crowd had him on his feet reaching
over the rail Bhaklng hands. He would
shake fifty or more and then tako a rest
and go at It again. The sun got so ter
ribly hot that the president and nil the
dignitaries In the reviewing party soon
took a position high up In the stand
which was shaded by the trees. Besides
President McKlnley, Judge Day and
Mr. Lynch, the following were In the
reviewing party: Commander Folger of
the navy, Lieutenant Tom Prince of the
navy, General Plume of the regular
army, Colonel Rlchter, Major De Vine,

services wero to be held for the dedica
tion of the Spanish cannon.
A Grand Display of Pyrotech
nics Witnessed by Thousands
Twenty thousand people aio believed
to have witnessed the display of pyro
technics which occurred In tho Shorb
addition Wednesday night. The Im
mense crowd of spectators was com
posed of visitors and citizens, and the
fields and adjoining streets wero all
packed with the large mass "of hu
manity bo far as one could see. Buch
a crowd, at one time an?, at one place J
never before was witnessed In this
city. And the spectators hugely en
Joyed tho brilliant pyrotechnics as they
were sot off.
A large space, probably an eighth of
a mile In diameter, was spaced off In
the Shorb addition by the men whe
had the explosion of the fireworks In
charge, and a rope was thrown around
this In a half circle, preventing tho
people from gathering close to the scene
of the discharges. The display began
about 8 o'clock and continued several
hours. Tho first explosions of heavy
cannonading salutes were followed by
an Illumination of the grounds, and
the sotting off of tho word "Welcome"
In brilliant colors. A flight of color
mines wero discharged which descend
ed to a great height, casting beautiful
colors over the surrounding territory.
The set piece "July 4th," was simply
beautiful, and the display of prismatic
whirlwinds and Japanese bombs fol
lowed. Among the larger set pieces
which received particular attention of
the spectators, were the American flag,
portrait of Dewey, Niagara Falls,
American eagle and Battleship Olym
phla. Thero were grand meteoric dis
plays of rockets and showers of colored
stars thrown high Into the air. Piece
after piece was discharged and It Is
not believed that a more grand display
was ever seen In this city. During the
firing of the pyrotechnics a band dis
coursed patriotic music.

The New Method of Education Opens the
.Door of Success to Thousands of
Wage Earners and Others.
"The number of peoplo, In all parts of tho world, who are getting educa
tlon in tochnlcal subjects by the correspondence method of Instruction, without
leaving their homes, or Interrupting their ordinary occupations, is one of the
most marvelous things about tho modern educational awakening. The most
famous institution devoted to instruction by mall is The International Corres
pondence Schools, at Scranton, Pa., where 104,000 students and graduates in all
parts of the globe are receiving instruction or have completed Courses and
"Any one, anywhere, who is able to read and write English may be on
rolled in the Schools, Every Course is started from too very beginning, taking
(or granted that the student knows nothing about the subject. Ho is sent his
first and 'second Instruction and Question Papers. After studying the first
Paper, he returns his written answers to the questions asked in the Question
Paper to the Schools, and proceeds with his second Paper. At the SchooU his
answers are corroded in red ink and returned to tho studont, accompanied by
the third Instruction and Question Papers and a letter explaining tho errors
and con ections in greater detail than is possible on the answer sheets them
selves. If the studont receives a mark of ninety per cent, on his first Paper, It
is entered on the book as passed; but if be falls to get this percentage the
Paper is returned, and he is obliged to review the incorrect portion. This sys
tem Is followed until the Course is completed, when tho Schools' diploma is
granted after a final examination. Although students are not limited in the
time required to complete a Course, those who meet with difficulties are as
signed to "special instructors," who aro skilled with such cases.
"Tho Courses taught range from art design, (or women as well as men, to
ocean navigation and stationary engineering, and from arithmetic to civil or
mechanical engineering. Buelness as well as technical branches are taught,
thero being thousands of students 'enrtlled studying those subjects which lead
to buelness success.
"Any one interested in education, who would like to be fully informed, can
obtain interesting literature oa the subject of correspondence instruction by
writing to The International Correspondence Bohooli, or by calling upon their
