NOTABLE EVENTS THAT HAVE
HAPPENED ON JULY FOURTH
The Fourth of July is not a distinct
ly American institution. To be sure,
it happens to be Independence day for
the United States, and more than a
century and a quarter of observances
of that great event have brought it
about that the signing of the charter of
American liberties in the old state
house in Philadelphia on that date
overshadows all else when the
holiday arrives. But there are other an
niversaries which fall on the fourth
day of the seventh month, some of
them quite as much by chance as did
the signing of the Declaration itself,
some of them because it was the
Fourth of July, but all of them of suf
ficient importance to hold their places
in the records of history or science or
literature, as the case may be.
It is a list of 2S items, and here in
America at least, it will be best to be
1777 The Declaration of Indepen
dence signed by the Continental con
gress, in session in Philadelphia.

Charles Ashmead Schaeffer of the
University of Iowa, has been seen
alive in India and is probably now
with his mother in England. The first
news from the missing young Phila

Alice French. Miss French is the inti

is understood that the latter wrote

Mrs. Edward Wenks. a former resi
dent of Buffalo, died in Des Moines
Thursday night and the burial took
place in Buffalo, this county, yester
day. Deceased was a daughter of Mrs.
Cass one of the old settlers of Scott
county, now residing at Stuart. Iowa.
Mrs. Wenks was about 34 years of
ags. Besides her mother, she is sur
vived by a husband, one daughter 1 .
years of age and two sisters. She
was a neice of Mrs. Charles Rowan,
and in her girlhood days was one of
the most attractive and popular of
the young people of Buffalo town
ship. Saturday Mr. and Mrs. John F. Falk
celebrated the golden anniversary of
their wedding which occurred in Ger
many on July 2. 1854, half a century
ago. The auspicious event was ob
served with due solemnity as a family
reunion, which was held at the home
of a son of the jubilarians, Theodore
Falk. 91S West Sixth street. The aged
couple are still in robust health. The
groom of 50 years ago has been in
the employ of the C, R. L &. P. in
the local shops for the greater portion
of his residence in this city. The cele
bration Saturday was attended by all
the children and grandchildren of the
nological sequence of its events. It Is
at least a coincidence worth noting
that all of these happenings should
have fallen on the one date, with
only five exceptions in cases where
July 4 had been chosen artificially as
it were, for the doing of something
which has of itself since become nota

Albert Jacobs, living at 1921 Sixth
avenue, experienced the sensation of
an aerial artist and also that of a
football player Friday night in a live
ly runaway down Third avenue. Near
the Manufacturers hotel his buggy
collided with another, precipitating
him to the street. Friends picked
him up In an unconscious condition
and he was taken inside the hostelry,
where Dr. Arp found that he hail
broken three ribs and sustained other
serious bruises. He was taken to tin
hospital. It seems as though after
supper he decided to go buggy riding,
so he secured a horse and carriage
from a down town livery. This outfit,
however, was not swift enough for
Mr. Jacobs, so he substituted it with
an outfit from another livery. This
horse proved too much.

DOVECOTS IN SCOTLAND.
According- to LW, Xo One May tin I id
More Than One.
It is not universally known that the
right of erecting a dovecot was a priv
ilege only to le enjoyed in England by
the lords of the manor, and the law
was vigorously enforced on this point.
But In Scotland, according to a statute
still held in observance, nobody has a
right to build a cot In either town or
country unless he is the owner of land
yielding about 9'i0 imperial bushels of
produce per annum, and this property
must le situated within at least two
miles of the dovecot or pigeon house.
A further enactment also states that
on the above named conditions only
one cot shall be built.
A distinguished authority on hus
bandry estimated that in 1628 there
were 26.000 dovecots in England and
that, allowing 50O pairs to each house,
the damage wrought by the birds in
devouring corn would work out at no
less than 13,000.000 bushels that Is, on
allowance of four bushels yearly to
each pair. Any one who destroyed a
cot was guilty of theft and Is so held
at the present time In Scotland tb
net w.is passed in ir70. while a third
offense of dovecot breaking was capi
tally punishable. Perfect specimen
of these cots are becoming scarcer e
