She was such a pretty, modest young thing?so far as one could see under the bushel basket of a hat that covered her head and left but a glimpse of bright hair and blue eyes. She sat placidly still, her baby stare directed tranquilly into space. At the State street station a man came in?sleek, I bold and bulbous-nosed. The baby face fascinated him and he began matting violent efforts to draw It on himself. He stood directly before her and ogled her in what he thought was a killing way. Suddenly the Jolting of the car gave him the excuse he wished for striking his knee against the girl. He offered his apologies with an ostentatious bow, to which she paid no attention. He repeated the offense once more at the next opportunity; but the baby stare lost none of Its guileless blankness. One of the young woman's hands was lifted carelessly to her big hat, she gave her back hair a few pats and toyed for a moment with her dirklike hatpins. . Presently her hand dropped lightly to her lap and she became again the embodiment of girlish repose. Aagin the car Jolted, again the man Jostled the girl, but this time no apologies followed. Instead there was a smothered oath and he sprang wildly from the object of his attentions and squeexed hurriedly through the fast closing car aoor in a maa tuiempt w get away.

U Hi. riniey, rcprcsciimiuc in w?gTess from the Fifth South Carolina district, made an Interesting- and instructive address in response to the toast. "The United States." The address was listened to carefully by thousands of people, and the approval of the big audience was manifested in liberal applause. Congressman Finley's address was as follows: The United States of America. The United States. Her entrance into the family of nations was assured by the victory gained here by the patriot fathers, one hundred and twenty-nine years ago today. It has been claimed that the cause of the American Revolution, was taxation without representation. Practically speaking, this statement is untrue. Who is there that belives that had the British government admitted to parliament a few members from the American colonies in proportion to the population, that America would have continued a colony? In truth, the Amercian colonies objected to the sovereign authority claimed and ex 1 ^ Owlfoin QnvprAlcn ercisea uy uicai uhm?i>. authority carries with It the power of taxation. The power to tax Is the power to destroy. So that in 1776, the time had arrived when the father's of the Revolution had the right to declare for national freedom, and by a solemn declaration the act of the representatives of the people to throw off the British yoke. I have never believed that It was possible for England, under any circumstances, to have retained the American colonies as a part of her dominion. In many respects the American colonies constituted the cream of the old world's population in the matter of qualification necessary in those settling, as this country was at that time , a wilderness. The great majority of the early settlers left their native lands on account of religious and political persecutions. Men of this, type were not calculated to submit to the rule of the old world sovereign longer than weakness on their part required. The population of the colonies at that time exceeded three million. In natural resources the country was rich. Many of the colonists were men of great wealth. Some of the colonies had no cause of complaint on the score or oppression against the British crown. The colony of South Carolina is an illustration of this. On the contrary, this colony was favored in every way by the British government. And accordingly her people had STOwn in numbers and increased in material wealth. The same is in a large measure true of Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia. Yet, when it was attempted to set the heel of the oppressor upon the colony of Massachusetts, these colonies immediately declared for war and hastened the declaration for national independence. During the seven years' struggle for independence the fortune of the young nation more than once hung In the balances, but the God of battles, the arbiter of the destiny of men and nations, was on the side of the American people. We are proud of the history of our country. The first seven years of our national existence was a period of sanguinary and desperate struggle.. The thirteen colonies had constituted | governments of their own. Local commonwealth, the continental congress held national sway. I have not the time, and the occasion does not require, that I speak of the great men, intellectual giants, and patriots, having charge of the government at that time. The first resort to arms in 1775, was but the beginning of a long and bitter struggle. For the Americans the issue was clean cut; that they were to be free men, or subjects of the British crown. It is a remarkable historical fact that there are three battles of greatest importance in the seven years' war that followed? Saratoga, King's Mountain, Yorktown. It would be difficult to reason out logically how the Americans could have succeeded without taking into consideration these three victories. On April 19th, the battles of Lexington and Concord were fought. These engagements werei important because it was the beginning of the war for independence. Then followed the siege of Boston by the American forces, the attack on Ticonderoga and Crown Point, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the evacuation of Boston brought the first year of the war to a reasonably favorable close. Great Britain was now convinced that the war was now on in earnest, and she proceeded to hire thousands of mercenary soldiers in Germany. In 1776, the British were signally defeated at Charleston. The battle of Long Island resulted disastrously iu the Americans. Too much praise, however, cannot be bestowed on the great Washington for his masterly retreat through New Jersey and return movement, resulting in victories at Trenton and Princeton. By those victories, the Americans were encouraged, and the British forced to retreat on New York. The battles of Germantown and Brandywine following, were indecisive. The capture of General Furgoyne at Saratoga by the American forces under General Gates must be considered one of the three most important battles of the Revolution. In July, 1777, the struggle for the control of the Hudson river was commenced. General Burgoyne set out from Canada with a splendid army of eight thousand men. His purpose was to retake Ticonderoga, advance upon Albany and New York, and then with the British in possession of the City of New York, the control of the Hudson river would be complete. mi-i ..IJ Vo,?r Vnirlunil J.

The battle of Saratoga was preceded by the battle of Bennington in New Hampshire. History informs us that to secure supplies, and with the hope of finding discontent and Tories among the settlers of New Hampshire, General Burgoyne despatched 800 men, under Col. Baum, where, on August 16th, 1777, at Bennington, they were defeated by the New Hampshire and Vermont patriots, under the command of Col. John Stark. The British lost in battle about 200 men, and about 600 prisoners. The American loss was 14 killed and 42 wounded. The struggle between the American and British forces^which ended in the surrender or Kurgoyne on the 17th of October, was begun September 19th. at Bemis Heights. With Burgoyne, 5,790 men were surrendered prisoners of war. This victory was the most important one of the war up to that time in every respect. More than a year had elapsed since the declaration of independence, but the great nations of the world had not acknowledged our independence. Strong efforts were made to induce France to acknowledge the independence of the United States. The defeat of Burgoyne and the capture of his army resulted In France receiving the United States on terms of equality with herself in the family of nations. Then followed the treaty of peace and alliance, offensive and defensive, between the two countries. America owes France a debt VT BATTLES. ; Mountain and town. IVE IMPORTANCE iw of the American Revolution' hat Made Possible the the United States. that can never be paid for her action in these matters. Candor, however, compels me to say that the French alliance probably caused the American neonle to relax their own ef forts, and to depend too largely on the alliance with France. This great battle practically closed the campaign in the year 1777. Up to this time the war had been carried on generally north of Maryland. In 1778, it was decided to carry the war into the south, for the reason that it was supposed that here the resources of the colonists were less, and British force would be more effective. In a few months Georgia was entirely reduced by the British army. In 1780, active warfare was almost entirely confined to the south. Beginning with the siege and capture of Charleston, on May 12th, this calamity was followed by unprecedented success of the British armies In South Carolina. Georgia, already in the hands of the enemy, South Carolina was quickly overrun. The (capture of Charleston was followed by the defeat of Gates at Camden, the Buford massacre in Lancaster county, and the surprise and defeat of (Sumter at Fishing Creek. The only successful show of resistance was on the 12th of July, when Captain Huck, of the British army, with a considerable force, was defeated by Colonels Bratton and Lacy, at Brattonsville, in York county. This time was the darkest period of the Revolutionary war. From Charleston to the North Carolina line, the state, with the exception of Marion, who was hiding in the swamps, was practically free from Whig opposition. The governor of the state was a fugitive. In fact, the commonwealth of South Carolina at that time was without a government. wHiia fho nntrinta could no lonirer reasonably hope for success, the spirit of liberty burned with quenchless flame in the breasts of the Whigs. This flame was fanned by the wanton cruelty of the British, and particularly by the acts of the bloody Tarleton in the Buford massacre, where, after resistance had ceased and quarter asked for, he put between two and three hundred men to the sword. This gave the Whigs a new rallying cry, "Remember Tarleton." And it is an Instance worthy of note that the password at King's Mountain was "Buford." After the surrender of Charleston, the British boasted that the conquest of South Carolina was complete, but they did not know the spirit which actuated, and the love of liberty that controlled, the Whigs of the two Carolinas and Virginia. On the 24th of May, 1780, Captain John McClure, with a party of Whigs attacked and defeated a band of Tories under Captain Houseman at Beckhamville, in Chester County. On the 26th of May, two days afterwards, Colonel William Bratton and Captain John McClure, with a small body of their Whig neighbors, attnrtoH and routed a band of Tories at Mobley's Meeting House, on Little River in Fairfield county. On the 20th of June, 1780, at Ramsour's Mill, on the South Fork of the Catawba, the Tories, under Moore and Welsh, were defeated by the Whigs under Colonel Locke. Huck's defeat was followed by the battle of Musgrove's Mill, South Carolina, which was fought on August 18th, resulting in a most Important victory for the Americans under Colonel Shelby. The British loss in this affair was 63 killed, 90 wounded and 70 prisoners. At the close of the battle, Shelby was informed of the defeat of Gates at Camden, and the necessity of reaching the mountains in order to avoid the British forces. This course was pursued. Reaching the mountains, they were met by Colonel McDowell, and Colonel Shelby proposed that the army be raised to cope with Ferguson. It is important, for the truth of history, that it be stated that the undertaking which culminated in the battle of King's Mountain originated with him, while it is true that Ferguson afterwards notified the followers of Shelby and Major Robertson that ir tney *\uia not desist from their opposition to the British army, he would march an army over the mountains, hang their leaders, and lay their country waste with fire and sword." A short time after receiving this message, Colonel Shelby visited Jonesboro to consult with Colonel Sevier, commander In Washington county, North Carolina. The result of this conference was that it was determined to carry out the plans of Colonels Shelby and his associates, formed after the battle of Musgrove's Mill. Colonel Shelby solicited the aid of Colonel William Campbell of Washington county, Va. At first, Colonel Campbell, on account of itreatened local dangers, declined, but afterwards consented. The time and place appointed for the meeting of the forces under the Whig leaders was the 25th of September, at Sycamore Shoals, on the Watauga river. At this time, Ferguson, with his army, was stationed at Gilbert Town, N. C. According to agreement amongst the Whig leaders, on the 25th of September, 1780, Colonel Campbell's 200 men, Colonel Shelby's and Colonel Sevier's regiments of 240 men each, and the forces of Colonel McDowell met at Sycamore Shoals. Before the march commenced, Colonel Arthur Campbell, of Washington county, Va., with 200 additional men, arrived. The Whigs were armed generally with the Deckard rifle, supposed at that time to be the best. The men had very little baggage, consisting at most of a blanket and cup, a small amount of provisions, principally "parched corn meal, mixed as it generally was, with maple sugar." A skillet for each mess was about all the cooking utensil the patriots had. No provisions were carried along for the horses. After a short talk and prayer by Rev. Samuel Doak, of the Watauga settlement, on the morning of the 26th of September, the patriots took up their line of march in search of Ferguson. Ferguson, on the 27th of September, moved from Gilbert Town to the Green river region, seeking for Colonel Clark, the Whig leader from Georgia. On the 30th of September, he was advised that the mountain men were after him. So intense was he, however, on capturing Clark that he moved slowly?so slow, in fact, tnat ne remained in camp ai one place two days. On the 5th of October, he seems to have awakened to his danger, and he writes Cornwallis a letter, indicating that he needs assistance. In the meantime, Colonels Edward I^acy and James Williams, of South Carolina, and Colonels Graham and Hambright, of North Carolina, with their forces, had joined the patriot forces under Campbell, who had been made commander-in-chief. On the 7th of October. 1780. the patriot forces came up with Ferguson encamped on this spot. I shall not undertake a description of the battle. It is sufficient for my purpose to say that the British were surrounded on all sides by the patriot forces, and after an hour's fighting, the fiercest and bloodiest of the Revolutionary war, Ferguson was slain, and his entire force either killed or captured. A detailed account of this battle would be simply a narrative of the unrivalled courage and heroic deeds of the great leaders, whose names are to adorn this marble shaft, flfhd the deeds of their equally brave and heroic followers. The United States, to commemorate their acts and deeds on this heroic spot, has, by act of congress, ordered the erection of this monument. These men are worthy of all honor. The people of the United States are proud of the history they have made. It has been truthfully stated that the battle of King's Mountain led to the surrender of Comwallis at Yorktown. After the battle of King's Mountain,' the gloom which had settled over the country lifted. After this, the American armies prospered as never before. Shortly after this battle, General siatoa wan simerseded by General Greene in command of the southern army. With Greene those were unrivalled warriors, Daniel Morgan, William Washington and "Light Horse" Harry Lee. On January 17th, 1781, Morgan, with 900 men defeated Tarleton with 1,100 men, at Cowpens, within twenty miles of this place. Then followed the battle of Guilford Court House on the 15th of March?a drawn battle. On the 20th of May, Greene was worsted, but not defeated, by Lord Rawdon at Hobkirk's Hill, near Camden. The last battle of any importance in South Carolina was that of Eutaw Springs, fought on the 8th of September. During the remainder of the war, the British were shut up in Charleston. In January, 1781, that arch traitor, Benedict Arnold, in command of the British forces, invaded Virginia. On the 20th of May, after this, Cornwallls arrived at Petersburg in that state. The last of August found Cornwallis at Yorktown, the "spot he was not to leave except as a prisoner of war." So that the history of the Revolution makes good the claim that the three great battles of that war were Saratoga, King's Mountain and Yorktown. It is interesting to compare our country today with what it was one hundred and twenty-nine years ago. Then, we numbered three million Inhabitants, scattered along the Atlantic coast from Georgia to the St. Lawrence river, thirteen colonies in all. Now, we number forty-six states, not including our territories, and a population that exceeds ninety million. Then, we were a poor and struggling people. Now, the wealth of the United States equals that of any two nations In the world. Then, we had not made good our claim to Independence. Now, * In all that makes a people truly great, the United States Is the foremost and most powerful nation in the world. What we are today as a people and as a nation, we owe to the patriot fathers, and along with those who did most for the cause of independence, the heroes of the battle of King's Mountain rank high. MODEL BABY WA8HING. Wholesale Problem Solved by the Ultra-hygienic. In these ultra-hygienic days no excuse is needed for the introduction of so manifestly important, although unconventional, a topic as washing babies, declares the New York Press, .n private washerles, where only one or at most two infants require dally scrubbing, the problem Is relatively simple. At hospitals and other lnstl tutlons wnere to sick auu ptuvuucso babies is given the best available substitute for a mother's love and care, the washing problem Is a difficult and serious one. The work has to be done at wholesale rates, and the operators, despite the best Intentions, are often careless. Babies are burned or otherwise Injured?not often, but occasionally?and unless the apparatus is made practically foolproof there seems no way of absolutely preventing such accidents. With these facts in mind Dr. W. P. Northrup, attending physician at the Presbyterian hospital, in this city established at that institution a few months ago a model washery for babies. It has proved a great success, and besides eliminating accidents has reduced the time required to wash the Presbyterian's babies by at lease onehalf. We should Imagine that an inspection of it might prove suggestive to the authorities of other institutions where infants are cared for in considerable numbers. Individual mothers will also find It Interesting. The washery consists of a small tiled room more nearly resembling a moaei kitchen than a bathroom In Its fixtures and general appearance. There Is a boiler and beneath this a sink and two marble drain boards. Hot and cold water pipes run to the boiler, which is filled every morning by the same nurse, its temperature tested by the head nurse, and then both Inlet pipes closed until further orders. From this mixture tank two rubber tubes, ending in ordinary spray nozzles, run down to the sink. The baby to be washed is simply laid on a bath towel on one of these slabs and sprinkled and scoured according to his needs. Mexico City. The story of the founding of the City of Mexico Is one of the most extraordinary tales In history. It happend In 1325; at least It began a long time before that, but was an accomplished fact about 600 years ago. In the first place, imagine an almost inaccessible mountain crowned with a valley, at the height of 8,000 feet above the level of the sea. In the center of this valley was an immense laKe. wnen tne Aztecs arnvea, leu oy the priests of the god of war, they found it in the possession of hostile tribes. For that reason and because the priests declared that in a certain part of the lake where there stood an elevation of stones an eagle had been devouring a serpent they began the construction of the city on this spot, immediately over the deepest waters of the lake. There had long existed a prophecy among the Aztecs that their wanderings would end when they should have reached a place where the priests would behold an eagle resting on the cactus plant devouring a serpent. Confident that they had found the spot ordained to be their abiding home, they began to construct rafts of the trunks of trees, covering them with thick layers of earth, upon which they built rude huts of more or less solidity. Groups of dwellings soon began to form themselves in regular order, thus determining the primitive streets of the new city. They also constructed boats and oars of different sizes useful in peace and war, and while certain of their number occupied themselves in defending their homes and brethren from the onslaughts of hostile tribes others continued to improve and enlarge the city. Gradually the lake was filled up, and terraces arose one after another in the place once occupied by the deep waters. This was in itself a herculean labor, unsurpassed in ingenuity and durability by any similar work of ancient or modern times. Upon the first of these terraces was constructed the Teocalli, or sacrificial temple. It was begun in 1216 and not completed until 1325, a little over 100 years, from which time may be dated the official foundation of Tenochtitlan, today the modern City of Mexico.?Exchange.
