Haying will begin Monday in
full blast and the wheat will be
ready to harvest as soon as the
farmers can get to it. The oat
crop this year will be somewhat of
a failure but as many of our farm

age in oats will not be a heavy loss. |
The summer fallow wheat is look
ing fine, a good yield being ex
pected. The spring sown grain j
will be short in the straw but the
rain of the Fourth and subsequent
cool weather will aid the growth
very materially. 1 I
PULLMAN, WASHINGTON, SATURDAY, .JULY 7, 1900.
The aeronaut who made the bal
loon ascension and parachute jump
yesterday came near ending his
earthly career by descending into
the network of wires on Main street.
There being but, little breeze, the
balloon did not drift tar, and the
aeronaut cut loose with his para
chute while directly over the First
National Bank building. His feet
caught on the edge of the building,
but he overbalaned and fell toward
the pavement. The parachute be
coming entangled in the wires
broke the force of his fall, however,
he escaped with a bruised hip and
the loss of a quanity of eperdermis.

Celebration a Success.
The citizens of Pullman are to be
congratuloted upon the success of
their three day celebration. Never
in the entire history of Pullman has
its citizens been rewarded with such
a hearty appreciation of their efforts
to entertain visitors on our national
A liner morning could not have
greeted the small boy as he rolled
out of bed at 5 o'clock to awaken
the household and next door neigh
bors with his merry shout of "hur
rah for the Fourth of July" re-en
forced by innumerable bunches of
P,y S o'clock the roads leading
into town were lined with teams
and the well sprinkled streets were
soon filled to overflowing with
vehicles of every description. The
signs of prosperity were painted
plainly upon the persons of the
multitude that thronged the side
walks, men, women and children
were dressed in their best in honor
of our country's independence.
White silk dresses and kid slippers
were no uncommon sight. At
about hali' past nine the trains on
the Northern Pacific and O. R. &
N. added their quota of Several hun
dred people, coming from Moscow
and surrounding country. The ac
commodations provided by the rail
road companies not being sufficient
several box cars were used as
coaches, some of the passengi
were even then compelled to ride
on the tops of the cars.
A few minutes after ten o'clock
the parade, headed by the band,
following which were the <i. A. R.,
the president of the day and speak
ers, the liberty car with Miss Ada
Kruegel as goddess of liberty, cali
thumpians, and citizens in carriage
I left the opera-house and marched}
I through the magnificently decorat- 1
ed streets to Reaney's Park. Here, i
I after the people had seated them- j
i selves in the pavilion and on the !
grass near by]'the exercises proper
were opened by the band discours- !
I ing a selection or two of very charm-1
I ing music. President Bryan, pies j
; ident of the day, made a short,'
earnest speech of congratulation j
and then introduced the Rev. Mr.
; Mintzer, who gave the invocation; i
the Declaration of Independence
, was read by "Attorney Kimball, fol- j
( lowing which was a recitation by j
I Miss Etta Lane. Hon. H. S.
Blandford of Walla Walla then de- \
livered the ? address 01 the day. j
.Senator Blandford opened his ad- !
dress by expatiating upon the glor- I
ies of our greatest of national holi- j
days and then showed by various j
and unique examples how Ameri- !
cans were, not only a liberty loving
people at home, but spread the \
blessed precepts of freedom through
: out the world! 1 Wherever an Ame/i
can citizen is found there alsowU-i
erty has its abode. Mr. Blandford
is a thorough expansionist, believ
ing in the :: policy of the United j
States government in protecting the !
weak and in advancing civilization. I
In part he said; "It is not in the ;
1 fighting force that the Americans j
have astonished the world, but in i
the arts of peace. We have given!
the world a, lesson in war, but a
greater s.S^in the art of living. I
1 Our wealth^ceeds v the wealth
1 any other country in the world.
Our trade is more extensive than
that of Great Britain 'or any other
nation. The skill and inventive
genius of our workman cannot be
surpassed. Today we stand at the ;
I head of the industrial world save in
i our merchant marine, and of this
1 we speak with reluctance.
In closing he said: "We have
now come to the parting of the ways;
i there is a change, this is a time for
! seriousness. The results of the late
: war have committed to our care a
! race of beings who have not enjoy
ed the privileges of liberty and it
I is an opportunity and duty to teach j
■ them the arts of peace and impress j
I upon them our matchless civiliza- j
Following the rendering of this j
I part of the program came dinner
ami in quick succession the remain
'■ ing events of the day's exercises.
The races passed off with but one j
or two "small boy fights," while
the bowery dance was a complete j
failure owing to the indisposition of
the celebrators to trip the fantastic
toe. The balloon ascension and
parachute jump scheduled for 5:30
p. m. was posponed on the account j
of the heavy rainstorm, but was j
successfully made on Thursday. j
The rain made it somewhat incon
! venient for some of the people
who had come from a distance and j
without the necessary wraps for
protection against the inclemency
of the weather, but all seemed to en-!
joy themselves and also the good i
things which Pullman had prepar
ed for them. A brilliant display 1
of fireworks during the evening
made a pleasant termination to the ;
• The races were kept up during
Thursday and Friday, some fast
horses were entered making them
of much interest to the spectators.
Although the saloons were open ,
pretty much of the time, still much j
praise is due the citizens and visit- j
ors for the marked sobriety which [
they maintained throughout the en
tire three days celebration.
