HAY'S SUDDEN DEATH.
Up to Midnight of Friday He Seemed
Improving-A Sudden and Fatal
John Hay, Secretary of State, died
at twehe twenty-nve on Saturday
-morning a: his summer home. "The
Fells" at Newbury, N. H.. on the
shore of Lake Sunapee.
The last moments of the statesman
-were peaceful and the end came al
" most without a struggle.
The suddenness of it was stagger
ing. At the hour of twelve all was
quiet. In another moment the nurse
and pihysicians found themselves
summoned to the bedside. There had
been a collapse. Twenty-five minutes
-later all was over.
So swiftly did the end come that
the dying man passed away unattend
-ed by all the members of the family
-save his wife. The others, son and
-daughter, were summoned, but reach
-ed the bedside only to find their dis
tinguis+hed parent dead.
John Hay was born in Salem, Ind.,
October 8, 1838. He was of Scotch
ancestry, the son of Dr. and Mrs.
Charles Hay. After a common school
education in Warsaw, Ill., he took an
academic course in a college in
_Springfield, Ill., and graduated at
Brown University, Providence, R. I.,
in 1858, with the degree of A. M. The
degree of LL. D., was conferred co
on him by Brown, Princeton and
Western Reserve Universities. He
was married in 1874 to Clara Stone,
of Cleveland, 0. Was admitted to
the bar in Illinois a little later. He
was one of the private secretaries to
President Lincoln, was brevet colonel
United States volunteers, and after
wards adjutant general. He was sec
retary of legation at Paris, Madrid
He was made first assistant Sec
retary of State 1879-81; was presi
.-dent of the Internatioral Sanitary
Conference 1881; ambassador to Eng
His talents were not confined to the
-world of state. He was a writer of
-mnark, his special works being ."Cas
tilian Days;" "Pike County Ballads;"
"Translation of Castelar's Democracy
-in Europe;" "History of Abraham
.incoln;" and various addresses, edi
.torials and books of poems.
He was at one time an editorial
.ri er on the New York Tribune.
He was pre-eminently the states
--man, the man of affairs: secondarily,
:-he journalist, the poet.
. sg his notable diplomatic a
d.nevements were his securing the set

which he seemed to recognize my care
greatly. and it was but a short time 1
until I loved him as well as I did any
member of my family, and better than
I did mysel. for when circumstances
created the allotment of com.fort and
discofriIi1't between us. it was not him
who receiver the ,atter. He was met
tilesome and high spirited and soon
became restive it any one but myself
handled him, so that we became the
only two harmonious when he was a
factor. In the farm work we were
ever together, and he soon learned the 1
difference between corn hills and
weeds from my training that I noticed
him make a short step to avoid tramp
ing on one of tife former. After a
while he was coupled in team with an
other one of the farm horses which I
had lost its eyesight through optlial- I
mia or some such disease.
"Very speedily my pet learned the
infirmity of 'his mate and leaned gent- 1
ly against him on the road, guiding
their travel together so uniformly that
the ordinary observer never suspected;
aught to be the matter with the eye
sight of either. When turned out to
pasture, the blind horse was kept be
tween this mate, and the fences and
other animals were driven away when
approaching too near. The climax
was reached when the two were
turned -out in a field where there was
a washout from a recent rain. Soon
after being put into the field the I
blind horse wandered so much to- I
ward the washout that I was about to I
go after him to turn him away. My
amazement may be imagined when I I
saw my beloved pet trot over to his I
mate, pass around on the washout
side of him, throw his head over his <
withers and push him away from dan
ger. With such evidence, can there
be any doubt of thought and conclu
sion in horses, at least?"
THE REAL "FOURTH OF JULY."
Adams Would Have Had Independ

Leland Haworth in Harper's Maga- <
On the 3rd of July, 1776, John
Adams, then one of tihe representa- t
tives of Massachusetts in the con- 2
tinental congress, wrote to his -wife
"Yesterday the greatest question l
was decided which was ever debated
in America, and a greater perhaps
never was nor wvill be decided among
In a second letter written the same
day, he said:
"But the day is past. The 2nd. of
uly will be the most memorable ep
ch in tihe history of America. I am
apt to believe that it will be celebra
ted by succeeding generations as the
great, a; '.versary festival. It ought
to be commemorated as the day of
:eliverance by solemn acts of devo
tion to God Almighty. It ought to be1
solemnized with pomp and parade,
with shows, games, sports. guns, bells.

end of this continent to the other

When the resolution was taken up
n the 2nd., all the states, except New
York, voted to accept it. Thus, on(
he 2nd, day of July, 1776, the inde
endence of the Thirteen United col
nies from the throne of Great Bri
ain was definitely decided upon.

HARTZOG FORCED OUT.
Was A Victim Of Sharp Politics
He Supported Wrong Man For
Governor To Win.
Dr. Henry S. Hartzog. formerly
)resident of Clemson college, and un
:il recently president of the Universi
:y of Arkansas, has lost his place as
iead of that institution, all because of
)olitics, according to the Memphis
ommercial-Appeal. The Commer
:ial-Appeal says: "While the i;en in
:ontrol of the public schocls of Ar
cansas have been fighting nobly to
eep politics at a distance, there is a
erious charge that the removal of Dr.
H. S. Hartzog from the presidency of
he State university is due to this
;ource." The Springfield News,
which is published in the home coun
:y of the university, makes the di
-ect charge. It claims that tihe schol
trly educator who has done his duty
o faithfully was removed because of
t demonstration of students favoring
Wood for Governor over Davis.
Whether true or not, the following
:omment which the Appeal makes is
:ertainly one full of truth: "If this
>e true Arkansas is sowing a crop of
)olitics in places that will most cer
'ainly raise a fharvest' of deplorable
-esults in the near future. The edu
:ation of the youth of the land should
e absolutely free from political con
:rol. No man may do his duty as an
:ducator if his position is to be en
langered at the whim of every igno
-ant, but popular individual who may

:ies of the State. When politicians of
his sort appear upon the horizon the

xre of the calibre that builds machines
which will roll over and flatten out all
iberal views and all individuals. It is
L hard question, which is worse to
tave politicians run a school from the
