HAT Rluill wo do Fourth of July? The continental congress, In hohhIoii !n Philadelphia, piiHsed July 2, 1770, the resolu tion presented In behalf of Vlr Klnla by Itlchnril Henry I.eo that hcKlus: "Itesolved, That those Unl ted Colonies are and of rlht oiiKht to be free and Independ. cut states; Hint they uro ab solved from all nllleKlanco to the llrltlsh crown, and that nil political connection between them mid the state of drent Urltaln Is and uuglit to bo totully dissolved." This of course Is the real Declaration of Inde pendence, tho document now known as the Declara tion being adopted two days later. Of the adop tion of the Lee resolution John Adnms wrote to bis wife the historic letter which says, iiiiioiik other things: "Tho second day of July, 1770, will be the most remarkable epoch In tho history of America. I inn apt to bolleye that It will bo celebrated by HUCcoodltiB KcncrntloiiH as the j?xent anniversary festival. It ought to bo commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of dovotlon to God Almighty. It ought to bo solmenl.ed with pomp and parade, with shows, gumes, sports, bells, bonfires and Illumination from cno end of this continent to tho other, from this tlmo forward for evermore." Time has proved that John Adams, though ho pot hlfl dates mixed, was n true prophet. Probably tho Fourth of July Is our distinctively American celebration. All the civilized world celebrates Now Year's, F.nstor, Memorial day, Thanksgiving and Christmas In one way or another. Hut Inde pendence day Is ours nlone. To bo sure, we hnvo Washington's birthday and Lincoln's birthday, which nro also ours alone but "the Fourth" In. eludes most If not nil of what they stand for. In short tlio Fourth of July comes mighty near being our national day when tho Amerlcnn Knglo screams for everything from the Mayllower to tho Argouno from 1020 to November 11, 1018. Armistice day I That Introduces tho pertinent point that another change must bo inndo In tho long evolution of tho celebration of the Fourth of July. For If tho Fourth of July stands for ono Kpeclilc thing that ono specific thing h Just ex actly what Its original nitine Independence day signifies. And after Armistice day and all that It stands for It's ipiHe evident that the .American eagle must bo taught to coo Instead of scream when It goes to tlio John Hull part of Us perform, ante. For wo have seen our old-time two-tlmo enemy fighting for his life and for our lives too against n fou that would have destroyed all that we Kng llsh'Speaklng peoples In common hold dear. And after a long while we crowded In alongside our ancient enemy and got busy to make up for lost time. Never mind who won the war, We have gumption enough to know exactly what John Hull did for Uncle Sain and are grateful accordingly. And It's quite likely that Uncle Sum came near enough to saving John Hull's life to feel something more than a friendly Interest In him. .So some parts of our Fourth of July celebiatlon will have to bo toned down from now on. Moreover, It's high time that the American peo ple put their mind to fixing up the "day we cele brate." For tho Fourth of July celebration right aow Is betwixt nnil between. The old-fashioned Fourth was done nway with, The "Hane Fourth" iiipplanted It, Now the "Sane Fourth" Is In dan rer of becoming merely n holiday. Holiday cele brations, like men and nations, do not stand still, fuid the Fourth of July Is worth Hie closest at-'entloii-and best effort of tho American people. Tho first Fourth of July celebration, which was leld In 1777 In Philadelphia, cauol serve as n moil. rl.

The enthusiasm of our people for their country and ling can usually be mensured by the bent of the natlonnl pulse. A typical celebration of tho day Is that of 1&'50 In Hiiffnlo. N. Y., which Is described at some length In tho HufTalo Joumnl. That newspaper says: "Tho return of our national Jublleo was cele brated In this vlllngo with more than ordinary splendour and tho dny was duly honoured, 'not In tho breach but the observance.' " The proceMfclon formed at tho Knglo a famous tavern located on Main street between Court and Knglo streets and consisted of veterans of tho Revolution citizens and strangers, escorted by tho Washington and Frontier gunrd nnd tho cadets of tho Western Literary and Scientific academy, "tho wholo enlivened by muslck from tho nuffnlo band." The orutlon was pronounced by Sheldon Smith, Ksq., nt tho Haptlst church nnd religious services were conducted by Hov. Mr. Shelton of St. Paul's. From tho church the procession inarched to tho Huffalo Houso In Seneca street and there nn "ex cellent dinner was partaken of." Dr. Powell was landlord of the houso nt that tlmo and tho papers recorded as something worthy of speclnl mention that therq were no liquors on the tnblo. Hut tlio good lesson this statement was Intended to convey loses Its moral In tho very next lino of the narra tive: "After tho cloth was removed wlno was served with the toasts, which wero drank with the utmost regularity." It Is hardly necessary to draw on tho Imagination to any extent to picture tho final state of ninny In that noble company of 100 who drank tlio wine "with the utmost regularity." Hut that was before tho days of temperance soci eties nnd adulterated liquors. The marshal of the day was Colonel, afterward General, Sylvester Mathews, a veteran of tho war of 1812 a hero of the Hattle of Chippewa. Apart from these proceedings was discourse by Hov. Mr. Katon of the Presbyterian church on civil and religious liberty. Tho festivities closed ac cording to time honored custom with a ball In tho evening. No mention Is made of any fireworks. The celebrations of soveral succeeding years seem to have been much like this one, according to tho Journal's files. In IS It), however pre sumably because of the Mexican war the celebra tion was regarded by the Journal as noteworthy. Tho Sixty-fifth regiment made Its first appear ance on this occasion. At 8 o'clock hi the morning a detachment marched to the Fillmore House and fired some small anus In honor of tho vice presi dent, The lino of innrch Included Revolutionary soldiers. Think how old they must have been sixty-eight years after the surrender of Yorktown and seventy-two years after the battle of Lexing ton I There were also soldiers of the War of 1812 In tin line, otllcers and soldiers of the army and of tho Mexican war. The Friendly Sons of St. Pat rick, the Sous of Krln nnd tho (ieriiinn Young Men's association u sure sign that tho city was beginning to take on cosmopolitan form were In tho line of march. The exorcises wero held at Johnson's park, the orator of the day being II. 1C. Smith. Vice president Fillmore attended the ox erclhos and was lustily cheered. The Sons of Temperance had charge of tho celebration In IfiW), which was held "at the grove near tho workhoUM." John H. Cough, the leading "temperance" speaker of kw tiny, was orator.

Even more pretentious was tho celebration following tho sur render of General Lee. After 180.") Buffalo's cele bration of the Fourth of July was rather humdrum and innrked by no speclnl features Just as In most other American cities. I!y 1010 the "powder dlscnso" hnd come to Its climax and those bent on reforming tho observ ance of tho day called It the "nntlonal nuisance." Moreover, the nation was alive to the tremendous loss of life. Tnbfes prepared by the Journal of the American Medlcnl Association, showed thnt the number of tho killed and injured In the celebra tion of 1009 was 5,307; for the seven years pre ceding 1010 tho total was 31,003. Perhaps tho first notable "safe and snno" cele bration was that In Springfield, Mass., In 1900. However, In 1010 most of tho largo cities of tho country presented an entirely new kind of celebra tion, the basis being tho parade and pageant. Fire crackers wero taboo; tlio displays of fireworks wero municipal affnlrs. "I must confess that I always like to brag on tho Fourth of July," wrote Chauncey M. Depew, a good many years ago. "It Is tlio greatest day In the American cnlcndar. Nay, more, It gives perfume to the whole air that encircles thlr. globe. Kvery limn, woman, or child who breathes It, no mutter where he or she Is, feels the better for It. There Is not a liberal sentiment whero civilization Is known that Is not quickened on the Fourth of July. It reaches tho hut of the peasant, and It enters Into tho tent of the conscript. Tho one says: 'There Is for mo and for my children some thing better than this hut.' The other says: 'Why should I light to uphold thrones and cut the throat of my brother to maintain enste and privilege?' The Fourth of July lifts tho thought, the nsplratlons, the prayers of the people of all countries to higher planes of living, thinking and dying. Why It Is a unherslty, a college, a high school, a common school. It is a liberal educa tion In patriotism and manhood." That's tho way a good many good Aniorlcans feel nbout tho Fourth of July even to this day, even If there nre those who hold that noise Is vul gar and "brag Is our national vice." Some of us hao an Idea way down deep that the American who will not brag on the Fourth of July Is hnrdly worthy of his birthright. SHU, It la u self-evident fact that the old Fourth of July Is gone, never to como back. Of course we must keep the day and celebrate It. It Is too Iniportnnt a day to bo slighted. It must be cole t rated right. Hut let nobody make the mistake of trying to refine all tho light out of It. Our ancestors handed down to us freedom and tho love of freedom and and that still more pieclous thing the readiness to fight for freedom. ,nd that's got to stick out of any proper ohscrvanco of tho Fourth of July In the United States of America.

Elsie, nbout to be married, decided at the last moment to test her sweet heart ; so, going to her friend, Maude, the prettiest girl she knew, she said to her, although she knew It was a great risk: I'll arrange for Fred to take you out tonight a walk on the bench in the moonlight, supper, nnd nil that sort of thing nnd I want you, In or der to put his fidelity to the proof, to ask hiin for n kiss." Maude lnughed, blushed, and as sented. The plot was carried out. The next day Elslo visited her friend, and said, anxiously: "Well, Maude, did you ask him?" "No, Elsie, dear." "No I Why not?"

Experiments hnvo proved It entirely practicable to deliver belated transat lantic mall to ateainers at sea by air planes. The ship may bnve taken Its depar ture several hours previously, yet the flying mnchlne, with a speed of 100 miles or more nn hour, can easily catch up with It and put the mall aboard. A plane of the "flying boat" type H used for the purpose, and the water proof mall bag Is held In a chute on the side of the bull. The nvlntor flics over tho ship and the rigging en tangles a long line dropped from tho plnno that has grapple tails on Its end. This line Is nttached to the mall bag, which, when tho grapple tails catch, Is jerked out of Its chute, falling Into the sea.
