THE NATIONS BIRTHDAY.
GoTnmMa. gem of 1 lie west.
Peerless thou art, alone doth stand,
A continent by freedom blest.
Bright banners float o'er all thy land.
From mountain peak to |K-aceful vale.
From ocean depths to bubbling rill,
We ever heap the same sweet talo
Of peace nn earth, to man good will.
Of all th* nations of the enrth.
What one can such a record show
Of purity nml sterling worth
Among her men of years ago*
On histories' page forrvermore
Their names shall blend harmoniously
As those who opened wide the door.
Freedom for all i-.-t. i it>.
Unfurl our glorious flag once mora.
King out in cUrion tone* again.
Amid ihe glare of cannon's roar.
The nation's yearly grand amen.
This day of days, alone It stands
A priceless gem of lustrona hue.
Secured to us hy patriot hands,
A loyal band to right e'er true.
The stars snd stripes, long may they wars,
Grand emblem of a land that's free.
Might and oppression found one grave:
Thereon was reared sweet liberty.
And while the golden sunset rays
In rad'anre flash across the earth
We'd offer up to God all praise
For noble deeds that cave our Fourth.

A BOY'S STORY.
Fourth of July and Fireworks.
BY CHAKI.ES B. LEWIS (m. QCAD).
How I loved that girl—that Melvina
Jackson 1 It was a case of love at first
sight. I threw a paper wad at a red
headed boy in school, and the teacher
made me sit with Melvina Jackson as a
punishment. In after years I saw that
she had a turn up nose, a freckled face,
a cast in her left eye and S mouth lik. a
milkpan, bnt at that period I looked np-
HIS HAm WAS HIS TENDER POINT.
on her as a champion beanty. I didn't
lose five minutes' time telling my feel
ings of adulation and admiration, bnt
the most she would say was that she
wonld ride down hill on my hand sled,
borrow my geography in preference to
any other and allow me to sharpen her
slate pencil and lick the boys who snow
balled her after school. Thus wo loved
and loved, cr at least I did. There came
a time when I could look back and see
where Melvina was cool, calculating and
level headed—whore her love stopped
dead short and business began, but I
was blind then.
A year passed by before a rival entered
the field. We had our spats. There were
occasions wham we made up faces at'
each other across the schoolroom; when
she turned from mo and let another boy
wash her slate; when I was glad that she
left off at the foot of the spelling class;
when I added up 0 and 8 on the black
board and made 15, and she giggled and
was rejoiced. On the whole, however,
we were happy. I licked 14 different
boys for her direct benefit that year,
and her per cent in geography was
the highest of any girl in the school.
We were engaged—tbat ia, I had asked
Melvina about half a million times if she
would have me, and she had always re
plied that she guessed she wonld if th.
hogs didn't get tv and root up tbe gar
den or some other awful calamity ocenr.
My rival was a callow youth named
Bam Greene. Something warned me of
peril the minute I set eyes on him, bnt
an hour later, when I heard that he could
write poetry, I realised that it wonld be
a fight to the death. Sam went straight
to work to unhorse me. At the forenoon
recess he presented Melvina Jackson
with a lead pencil and a slate sponge, and
she smiled sweetly as she accepted them.
I wrote ber a note meant to annihilate
her, but she read it with her month full
of apple and didn't 6care worth a cent.
Long enough before noon I had deter
mined to lick Sam Greene. A licked boy
goes right out of the rival business and
doesn't bother any more. If Melvina
had melted a little and assured me of
her fealty, I might have changed my
mind, but she didn't melt. She even
went so far ns to whisper to a girl who
would whisper it to me that Sam Greene
had dreamy eyes and a nose like Cicero.
After that my resolution was unshaka
My callow rival had to be provoked be
fore he would fight, but when we got at
it he proved to be a sterling antagonist.
For a long time victory wavered in the
balance, and then I won by a scratch.
Bis hair was his tender point, and when
I got hold with both hanhs he gave in.
For a week Melvina placed me on a
pedestal and almost agreed to elope.
Then Sam Greene sent her a piece of
poetry entitled "The Maiden's Heart,"
and I lost my grip again. The only thing
to be done was to hck him again, but be
had had his hair shingled in the mean
time, and the conflict did not terminate
to my satisfaction. Some of the boys
■aid X "hollered," and others said I
licked, and it was an open question as to
who won. He went right home and
wrote another piece of poetry entitled
"She Died at Sunset," and I should have
been a goner bnt for Providence. I was
hanging around Mr. Jackson's house in
the evening, hoping to at least see Mel
vina's shallow on the kitchen window
curtain, when I discovered that ths
■mokehooM was on Are. I heroically
quenched tbe flames, burned my left
heel and saved seven hams from an in
glorious fate. Tbat waa more than an
offset for "She Died at Sunset," and for
weeks I waa a happy youth. I must
credit Sam with goiug over and helping
Mrs. Jackson to make soft soap and with
painting tbe well curb red, white and
bine nt hia own expense, but Melvina
only treated him ns a brother.
Age came creeping over me aa time
passed on. and my sixteenth birthday
arrived. It was ushered in by Melvina
presenting me with a 15-cent Testament,
and it waa ushered ont by my giving
Sam Greene the awfullest licking a hy
ena of a boy ever received. Owe of hit
legs slipped into a posthole during our
struggle, and then I had him. This waa
only a week before the Fourth of July,
anil there was also to be a circus in town
that day. In that fight, as I waa re
joiced to hear, Sam lost 9 cents in cash
out of one of his pockets, and I fondly
hoped he would be financially paralyzed
on tho glorious Fourth. Alas, for my
hopes! Hia mother permitted him to sell
two old flatirona and a dozen eggs, and
he waa made financially stronger than
before. Neither of na dared ask the fair
Melvina to accompany ns to the celebra
tion. We hadn't the age nor the back
ing. Our attentions would come in after
the reached town in her father's lumber
wagon. I had licked Sam Greene again,
but he waa not discouraged.
When the glorious day arrived, I had
• cash capital of 27 cents. In firing the
sunrise salute the anvil hurst, and one of
the pieces struck our hencoop. That
would have made me a hero in Mcl-
Tina's eyea, bnt that ornery Sam Greene
managed to burn a hole in bis vest ex
actly over hia heart with a firecracker,
and that dished me. We had a fight
over it, but it resulted in a draw. Sam
offered Melvina the first lasses candy,
bnt I came in a good second with real
pink lemonade. I think he discovered
the circus procession before I did, but I
waa the first to call attention to a ser
pent SO feet long painted on the canvat
of a sideshow at the circus. It wot
which and t'other nntil I got a plan to
ruin Sam. I encouraged him to take
Melvina in to behold the wild man of
Borneo, while I remained an outsider.
Ho fell into tho trap and camo out dead
broke, while I still had IS cents capi
As my dear one and I sat under one of
the cirens wagons that afternoon eating
gingerbread and living for each other
alone, while Sam was trying to regain
his lost prestige by turning handsprings
a few yards away, I remember that I ap
pealed to Melvina to fly with me. She
■aid she was too fat to fly, and I had to
struggle with my disappointment. She
promised on her solemn honor, however,
to die th. same night I did in case we
both had bilious fever, and I was qnit.
satisfied. When the shades of night be
gan to fall, Sam Greene was a doomed
boy. Poetry couldn't save him. He made
a raise of 8 cents somehow and bought
an orange and offered Melvina all the
peeling and half the fruit, but shaturned
away in disdain.
There were to be fireworks in the even
ing on a vacant lot not far from the
cirens tent. Tbe people were not disap
pointed. I had a front seat with Mel
vina on tbe grass, with the callow anc"
hollow hearted Sam Greene as near as
he could get to us. The fireworks were
loosely piled under the stand. The first
rocket had been fired when, Sam dug his
toe into my back. I resented the as-
SOMETHISQ BROKE LOOSE.
sanlt, and a scrap was the consequence.
It wasn't orer half a minute when we
rolled among the fireworks, and some
thing broke loose. Ten seconds later
candles, rockets, bombs, pinwheels, ser
pents and all sorts of zigzag things
were scooting about in the crowd. Mcl-
Tina's father had just got hold of Sam
and I and bumped our heads together
with a "Thar, by gosh!" when a rocket
struck him on the lower vest button, and
he laid down.
In the wild break th. crowd walked all
•ver each other, and half a dozen farm
ers' teams ran away The circus per
formance had just commenced, but a
dozen rockets banged th* old tent, set it
on fire in as many places, and everybody
had to turn to and fight the flames. Next
day it was figured that 40 people had
been hurt and damage done to the
amount of $2,000. Sam Oreene lost an
eye and h-.d an ear almost torn off, while
I had my nose broken and all my front
teeth knocked out, and on top of that
earn, an old fashioned home licking
which kept us in bed for a week.
Sam and I got outdoors the same day.
Animal magnetism drew us toward each
other. Fromforceof habit we got ready
for a conflict, but no conflict occurred.
"Yon kin hey her all to yourself," said
Sam as we faced each other.
"So kin you!"
"I don't want hftr
"Neither do It"
"Are yon mad?"
"Then I hain't"
Neither of ns ever looked at Melvina
Jackson again. The candle of lov. had
burned down to the socket and died ont

By virtue of an act of the last legisla
ture the fees of some county officers are
reduced nearly 50 tier cent. For instance
the clerk of the court formerly was al
lowed to charge $1 for taking affidavit
with seal; now his fee for the same work
is only 50 cents. The sherifT was formerly
allowed $1 for making service; now it is
only 60 cents. The auditor has been re
duced on the same scale as the clerk of
the court for like services, and justice of
the Peace encounter a similar reduction
in their charges.
