gladdened the heart ol the Alsatian, who
bowed his acknowledgments. Ami then,
in carriages driven to the rear of the
stand, came Mr. Cleveland and his party.
Instantly lie was recognized, and again
the crowds shook the welkin with their
shouts, and from the housetops and win

of clapping hands to swell Hie sound
that like a wave broke over the park and
flowed down tbc streets and along the
avenue, where, in the misty distance, t lie

column was seen moving. The Signal
Service operator at the Twenty-eighth
Slnet station made known the fact to
tiic throngs by a waving flag, and the
pressure Increased toward the avenue
and the people became packed more
closely if it were possible.
On the reviewing

The closing ceremonies iu the evening
were a magnificent display of fireworks
by James Payn, given on Liberty and
Governor's islands, together with a
grand illumination of French and Amer

plays were the most wonderful and
elaborate that have ever been witnessed

on the ocexsion of the unveiling of the
great statue led Mr. Clews and the other
gentlemen named to agree to furnish the
uecessary money provided the displavs be
given by James Pain, of Manhattan Bench,
under the direction of the New York
IPorid. When Mr. Pain was spoken to
in regard to the matter he generously of
fered to double whatever sum was raised
by the patriotic friends of the statue and
give a programme that would folly real
ize their expectations. The ground had
been gone over by an agent of Mr. Pain,
nnd no trouble or expense was spared to
make the displays the grandest
ever witnessed In this country. The vast
materials for the fireworks had been spe
cially prepared for this occasion by Mr.
Pain, and several new effects In pyro
technics were introduced. The displays
were begun with the lighting of the great
torch for the first tinicl and were given
simultaneoualy on Liberty and Govern
or's islands, including some sixty sepa
rate pyrotechnic pieces. With slight va
riations the fireworks were the same on
Liberty island and in front of old Castle
William, on Governor's Island, and
were set off by maroon signals from the
statue. The displays were largely
aerial and were vis
ible from all parts of
the harbor, although
the best positions
were the Battery and
Brooklyn Bridge, or
from the decksof ex
cursion steamers
midway between the
two islands. The war
ships weie anchored
about Liberty Island,
the French meu-of
waron the north and
the American squad
ron on the south side,

The yards and rigging were manned
by sailors, and the marines were drawn
up on the decks along the bulwarks.
Brilliant calcium lights burned irom the
extremities of the yards and fore and aft
on deck, while the men stationed in the
riggingand along the decks were supplied
with colored lire. The displays ou the
men-of-war took place at intervals.
General Schoiicld had given orders for
a file of oue hundred
soldiers to be drawn
tip at intervals of a
few yards along the
water front lacing
the Battery. They .
were supplied with

arranged that the French colors were

The famous statue, by Bartholdi, of
"Liberty Enlightening the World" was
received at New York, June 211, 1885.
The Fiencli vessel Isere, wttli the statue
on board, was escorted up the b-iy to
Bcdloe's Island by a number of United
States men-of-war and other vessels. The
statue stands on Bcdloe's Island here
after to be known as Liberty Island. At
tlie entrance to New York haibor,
Bartholdi, it is said, conceived the idea
of rearing a colossal statue to symbolize
America's message of liberty to the world
whiie sailing up Aew lork bay on his
vi-it to this country in 1871, with heart
depressed at the itiin and wretchedness
in his native land after her defeat bv Ger
many. On his return to France he sug
gested to his friends his idea of such
a statue to be presented by the
French nation to the United States.
The idea was received with great favor,
and so rapidly did subscriptions come
iu that in 187(1 the sculptor began work
upon his great statue. M. Bartholdi
supervised every step of the work
which was not only a
labor of many years,
but one lull of di!li
culty and detail The
first "steps toward its
construction were
made iu 1874, when
the French-American
union was establish
ed, a banquet given
and an appeal made to
the people of France.
In 1870 the sculptor
began actual work.
First the artist made
his model in clay,
and when this was
approved a plaster
statue was made; in
dimensions it was
one-sixteenth thesize
of the intended statue. Another plaster
statue four times as large as the first, and
a third one, of the full dimensions ol the
finished work were made. The last
modci hnd to be made iu sections, and a
wooden frame-work was constructed on
which the plaster was spread. When
these sections were completed, wooden
models were used, exact copies of the
plaster In size and modeling. These
were carcfnlly cut out by hand, and in
them were shaped the hammered brass
work which forms the outside of the
statue. Eighty-eight tons of brass were
used in the structure, and the entire
weight of the statue is 450,000 pounds.
In 187G M. Bartholdi, with the extended
right arm of the statue the first part
that was completed came to America
and placed the arm and torch iu
the Centennial Exhioition at Phila
delphia, whence it was subscqnently
removed to Madison Square, New
York. In February, 1877, Congress set
apart Liberty Island lor the statue,
and a committee was chosen with
William M. Evarts at its head. The
face and head of the statue was com
pleted in 1878, when it was placed in the
FrcuchExposition.andouJuly 7, 1880, the
great figure was com
pleted in Paris, where
it was temporarily
put together the fol
lowing year in the
presence of the Unit
ed States Minister
and a gathering of
prominent French
people. This statue
is a free gift of re
spect and good will
from the people of
France to those of
America. On the tab

A Suggestion Which Should Tio Talked
Over in Itiirnl Communities.
A cottntry-brcil woman living in a
largo city gave lessons in cookinc to
half a dozen working girls. She fowntr
them ignorant of the simplest detail? of
work, because they had never seen it
done. If tliey hail grown up in cotintry
homes she would have found them al
ready familiar with the theory of cook
ing and only in need of practice.
Washington Gladden belierctl that
country boys made the most successful
men. so he sent letters to a hundred
successful business men in all ranks of
city life, asking them where their boy
hood had been spent, anil how their
time, out of school hours, was used
The replies showed that most of them
were Irom country homes, where out-of-school
duties trained their hands anil
gave them habit? of industry. In many
large cities there are now schools where
little girls can learn to cook, set
rt table neatly, saw, darn, mend,
sweiip and dust, anil their broth
ers arc taught to iho carpenter's
tools, and to model in wood such things
as houses, fences anil furniture, and &s
their lessons advance, to make things
of value anil beauty, of suitable sizes
for use. The Children's Industrial Ex
hibition, held in New York City, showed
the work from such schools (and some
AVork done out of schools) by children
all over the country. Anil there is a
stir and a lluttcr of liltle han Is in thc
citics as they busy themselves with theses
new lessons. Tlie country children al
ready know many things these little
folks are studying out w:th active lin
gers; why can they not be helped to
learn still more? Are there not possi
bilities for cooking, sewing ami car
pentering classes in the country?
A class of six or more little girl
might meet once a week under the
guidance of a grown-up sister, auntie
or mother, and cook th; meal they cat
together, each one bringing a share of
uncooked materials and doing a share
of the work, the teacher watching1 ami
directing all the work, but doing
none. Setting the table and.
table manners would enne in for a
share of her care. A work-shop for tho
boys might be organ V.cd during the sea
son when there is the least farm-work,
and sonic farmer, handy with tool.9.
could greatly benefit the hoys of th
neighborhood by giving them Icasoiis in
simple work with tiic hammer, saws ami
nails. Studying books is good; train
ing the hanils to make the study practi
cal is bstter.
The advantages of such classes would
be many; lirst of all. the children would
feci that good work is important, and it
would become interesting, and, instead
of hurt ying through their out-of-sclnvsl
duties in the most carolcas way, they
would find a pleasure in doing them
well. Then, in a class, if only three or
four, the sense of companionship anil
the efforts made by each one to work as
well as the rest would add a charm for
the children. Try something of this
kind and report" the results. lfi'ce

An appeal in a rather pccnliar case
has just gone before the Supremo Court
of Arkansaw. John Iiogworth, whofor
many years lived in the village of Rip
ville, Washington County, Ark., camo
to Little Rock some time ago and enter
ed into business. Recently he went
back to his native village, having re
placed his slouch hat for a rather high
crowned Derby. When the companions
of his youth saw him wearing the hat
they provided themselves with bean
shooters and began to shoot holes
through it. Finally, one buck-shot,
ranging a trifle too low. plowed a fur
row across the top of John's head.
Bogworth had the fellow arraigned be
fore a justice of the peace.
"Is this the hat you wore?" the jus
tice asked.
"Yes, sir."
"And the buck-shot that made this
hole is the one that plowed you, ch?"
"Yes, j-our honor."
Tha justice, after a few moments' re
flection, said: "It is the opinion of this
court that the plaintiff in this case laid
himself liable, and that if he had net
pulled his hat down so far. the buck
shot would have simply gone through,
the hat without hitting him."
An appeal to the Circuit Court re
sulted in a confirmation of the decision
of the court below, and then an appeal
to the Supreme Court was token. The
final result is awaited with much in
