ENDS HIS LIFE BY OWN HAND
,1 .T. -W -
By JOHN PIERPONT
Day of glory, welcome day,
Freedom's banners greet thy ray.
See how cheerfully they play
With thy morning breeze
On the rocks where pilgrims kneel'd,
On the heights where squadrons
When a tyrant's thunder peal'd
O'er the trembling seas.
God of peace, whose spirit fills
All the echoes of our hills,
All the murmurs of our rills,
Now the storm is o'er.
Oh, let freemen be our sons,
And let future Washingtons
Rise to lead their valiant ones
Till there's war no more.
By the patriot's hallowed rest,
By the warrior's gory breast,
Never let our graves be press'd
By a despot's throne.
By the pilgrims' toils and cares,
By their battles and their prayers,
By their ashes let our heirs
Bow to thee alone!
By O. B. BREUER.

When I hear again the ever stirring
Of the colonists so loyal
Who renounced a ruler royal
And above a land of freedom raised
When the band in lively manner

I am thrilled by patriotic
Sentiments almost exotic,

The Sane Fourth
' Some people, when the Fourth of
July rolls round, demand a firecracker
as big as a neck yoke. Jollet News.
The Fourth of July was not estab
lished as n holiday for foolishness,
murder and conflagration, but as an
occasion whereupon the people might
show their sense and fitness for the en
joyment of liberty, peace and prosper
ity. Let's be thoroughly American and
have a sensible Fourth of July. Let us
have more patriotism than fireworks,
more happiness In life than trouble
over Injuries and sorrow over death.
St Louis Republic.
This is an esieclally appropriate time
to deal with this matter. The Fourth
of July Is approaching Independence
day which Is a day of blood and
slaughter throughout the land. In the
name of liberty. Scores are killed by
gunpowder accidents on that day and
hundreds wounded on that day and in
the joyous celebrations of the dawn of
liberty. It is a fearful price to pay
for the celebration of a day. Salt Lake
Parents who have boys who have a
fondness for explosives, toy pistols and
blank cartridges should study the sta
tistics of the annual tragedy and keep
their flesh and blood out of the holo
Dealers in fireworks should study the
figures In connection with the laws
regulating the use of firearms and ex
plosives and realize the risk they run.
City councils should prepare to en
force ordinances already passed and to
revise and bring up to date the laws
respecting the sale and use of explo
sives on the day we celebrate.
The Chinese method of American cel
ebration Is entirely too costly. Wilkes
MAKING ROMAN CANDLES.
Many Ingredients Enter Into Composl
. tion of Popular Fireworks.
The process by which the roman
candles are turned out may give a gen
eral Idea of the construction of pyro
technics. The tubes of rowan candles
are merely layers of paper rolled In
shape by hand, each layer being glued
to the others. They are made in all
lengths and sizes, from the tiny one
that splutters out but two stars to the
one which holds thirty stars in its yard
long length. When the tubes have
been finished one end is plugged with
clay, and then the process of loading
begins. A bit of slow burning powder
is first placed in the tube, then a star,
then more powder, etc., until the tube
has been charged with the required
number of stars. A bit of the same
Blow burning powder ts sprinkled on
the lust star; a fuse is then Inserted
and the end sealed. The loading Is not
done by hand that process is too slow.
Twenty-four empty tubes are stood
upright In a vertical frame, and into
them the powder and stars are alter
nately placed by an Ingenious mecha
nism. Then twenty-four steel rammers
firmly press the charges in place.
Bombshells are made of papier mache.
The spheres are molded in halves and
are then Joined by glue. After the
glue has Bet the globes are wound with
Plnwheels, like other playthings,'
must needs look pretty in order to sell
well, and the bright colors and fancy
patterns are put upon them by the deft
fingers of women.
An American Patriot's Work.
A striking illustration of the chances
of war is found in the fact that the
American army at Cambridge during
the war of the Revolution would have
been left without ammunition but for
the provision of John Brown, a mer
chant of Providence, R- 1.. and one of
the family who gave name to the uni
versity at the place. Brown was a
very wealthy merchant and was the
first of the Rhode Island merchants to
send his ships to China and the East
Indies. Anticipating the war. be in
structed his captains on the return voy
age to load their ships with powder,
which he furnished to the army when
its supply bad been restricted to less
than four rounds to each roan.

On the Fourth
In many families or circles of friend
where there are children a Fourth of
July picnic is an annual frolic. It
keeps the children out of harm's way.
A thoughtful mother last year pur
chased ten cent wicker baskets with
handles, and into these she packed
twelve individual luncheons. , The ban
dies were tied together with red, white
and blue ribbons, and each basket was
labeled with a patriotic postal, on
which the owner's name was printed
with red and blue crayons.
Another family In which there Is a
host of lively children will take on
their picnic several rolls of red, white
and blue crape paper, a paper of pins,
a pair of scissors, a dozen or more toy
swords and guns, along with the many
good things to eat. Later in the after
noon the clever fingers of an Ingenious
older sister will convert these materi
als into military outfits epaulets, cais,
etc. to make a patriotic Uttle army, of
"Surprise pies" are not new or novel;
still when they are presented lu some
new guise they never fail to please. A
gigantic firecracker can easily be made
by using a full sized sheet of paste
board rolled into a cylinder.- Cover
this with two sheets of smooth red
paper, having a piece of string show
ing at the end to represent a fuse.
Have both ends of the cracker covered
with a thin layer of paper and through
small slits have protruding strings or
ribbons attached to the gifts Inside.
NEWS OF THE DECLARATION.
Not Considered Important Enough For
Newspaper's First Page.
In regard to the proclamation and
publication of the Declaration of Inde
pendence (meaning the document itself)
it must be noted that It was Intended
for the world at large rather than the
colonists. The Declaration of Inde
pendencethat Is, the formal resolu
tion of the Continental congress of
severance of allegiance from the moth
er country was adopted July 2 after
having been much debated (principally
In committee of the whole, Benjamin
Harrison in the chair) from June 7,
when it was offered by Richard Henry
Lee. The fact that it was passed was
published in the Pennsylvania Gazette
of July 3. Few things show the differ
ence in temperament of newspapers
and public as regards "news" as does
the fact that this great Declaration,
which initiated the most profound po
litical change in the country and made
all the members of the congress traitors
in the eye of British law, was not an
nounced on the front page, but was
printed on an Inside page, without
comment or special display, except that
a portion of the resolution was put in
The first publication of the text of
the Declaration was in Towne's Penn
sylvania Evening Post of July 6. and.
as has often been remarked, on the
page facing the statement that all men
are endowed "with liberty' is an ad
vertisement of a negro boy for sale,
four or five years old, who "has had
smallpox and measles." It is also
worth noting that in the engrossed
Declaration the spelling Is "united
States," not "United States."
July 4 In Ante-prohibition Days.
One of the earliest genuine Fourth
of July celebrations ever recorded that
at Independence ball, Philadelphia, in
1790 U chronicled by Christopher Mar
shall in his diary -of the American Rev
olution. It is a graphic sketch, if not
a lovely one:
"July 4: Commencement began at
Philadelphia College this forenoon, at
which many attended. This be
ing the anniversary of our freedom
from- English bondage, sundry vessels
saluted the town. The company
of Artillery and the Invaders' Regi
ment marched to the State House,
where the Congress, President of the
State and Council with a number of
officers attended; bell-ringing, guns fir
ing till the evening, and until numbers
were so drunk as to reel home."
It was a wonder any Independence
ball was left Perhaps on account of
that very tendency to irresponsible
drunkenness and equally Irresponsible
gunfire the more Intelligent classes re-'
framed from encouraging celebrations
of the Fourth at the statehouse.

not appear in this paper, whose fault

Don't hesitate to do so. Xever too busy

The Glorious Fourth
By THEODORE H. BOICE
The starry flag waves greeting
To Freedom's natal day.
It ripples out with glory
Wherever breezes play;
It floats in stately beauty
Hid arctic ice and snow.
Through all the zones it flutters
And gems the tropic glow
The eagle screams in triumph
Its welcome to the day
And spreads its wings exultant
Where liberty holds sway.
From ocean unto ocean
And fr beyond the seas
Its notes of shrill defiance
Are borne by every breeze.
The orators are telling
The glories of the land
That at the front of nations
Now boldly makes its stand.
And eloquent are tributes
They to their country pay
And rousing are the plaudits
On Freedom's natal day
From early dawn till midnight
There's constant jubilee
Through all the broad dominions
That spread from sea to sea,
For 'tis on this occasion
All patriots are gay
And join in celebration
Of Freedom's natal day.
