with meaning, -rcrhaps the people who
"deplore" nre right.
One of The signers on that famous
Fourth of July, 1770, declared on his
deathbed that he would like to sleep a
century, then wake up to find out how
future generations were celebrating Inde
pendence day. If the old gentleman's
wish were to be granted, when he heard
the fish horns, the multitudinous snap

ventions, the reports of the dangerous
torpedoes and dynamite crackers he

tell him that New England's patron
saint, John Adams, recommended that
the day be recognized by just such a din
as young America Is making. It U true,
however, that President John suggested
that the early part of the day should be
given over to solemn acts of devotion.
Then he said the day should be commem
orated "with pomp, parade, games,
sports, guns, bells, bonfires and Illumina
tions from one end of the continent to
the other for evermore." Of the first
celebration of a Fourth of July by the
continental congress Adams in writing to
his daughter said: "The people shouted
and huzzahed In a way to strike utmost
terror to every lurking tory. There was
a bprendid illumination and while a few
surly houses were dark the show would
ivc given King George a heartache."
Hessian Band Flayed.
On this first official celebration of
Fourth of July by Congress that body se
cured music for the day and at the same
time afforded the people a great chance
for nmuscment and laughter by forcing
the Hessian band, which was captured
by Washington at Trenton the December
previous, to play In the public square all
day long. There Is on record a fairly full
account of an Independence day celebra
tion which George Washington attended
as the guest of honor. The celebration
was held at the Spring gardens, near

Things were not particularly bright for
the colonial armies on the first anniver
sary of the declaration of Independence.
The soldiers nt Morristown heights, how
ever, under Washington's command each
received an extra gill of rum with his
ration in recognition of the day. The
third anniversary of the signing of the
declaration was made memorable by the
issuing of an order by the commander-in-chief
that all military prisoners under
the sentence of death should be pardoned.
Perhaps the most enthusiastic and
heartfelt celebrations of Independence
day did not take place on the day itself.
News traveled slowly in the year 1770,
and It was some days before New York
knew that the country had been declared
free. When the pleasing information did
reach there, however, the town went
wild. The king's statue was pulled down
and melted up into bullets for the Ameri
can armies. Two or three days after
New York had given vent to Its enthusi
astic feelings Boston celebrated. A Brit
ish army officer who was a prisoner in
the hub at the time wrote an account of
the rejoicings of the "deluded people."
lie was escorted by a band of patriots
to see the "goings on" and confesses that
he enjoyed the occasion as a break in a
rather monotonous life ot captivity. The
crowd of Bostonians tore down the lion
and the unicorn from the old headquar
ters of the British Government, after
ward the old Massachusetts state house.
It was not until after the signing of
the treaty of peace with Great Britain
that celebrations of Independence day
were held regularly in all places. Dinners
were favorite features of the day. Ev
erybody was invited and it was seen to
that there was enough for all. The citi
zen sat down at the outdoor table with
out any fear that a camion cracker was
to be exploded under him before lie had
finished his first course. Pandemonium
had not as yet come into general use as
a synonym for the features of the Fourth
of July. All through Virginia the public
and private feasts on Independence day
had as n dish what was known as Bruns
wick soup or stew. The name probably
arose from a desire on the part of the
Virginia householders to suggest that the
kingly house of Brunswick was "iu the

were held as usual, but noise began to
take the place of speeches and in the
larger town3 of the reading of the declar
ation of Independence, which had always
been a feature of the celebration. The
opening of trade with China brought in
the small firecrackers and American fac
tories soon found the means of making
big ones. Noise assumed the scepter and
has reigned ever since. There is a strong
desire on the part of many people to-day
to change the character of the celebra
tion of Independence day and to make it
like unto that which it once was. All
sorts of plans have been suggested for a
more orderly and solemnly impressive
celebration of the republic's natal day.
The effort to change the methods of the
day's recognition arc being exerted in a
virile way, and it may be that the pres
ent generation will live to find something
more in the Fourth of July than a picnic,

REPORT OF A MAN OP EX
PERIENCE. What He Found in Western Canada, to
Induce Him to Settle.
SaulrSte. Marie, Mich., Feb. 20, 1900.
To whom It may concern, especially
to (hose who are desirous of obtaining
health and wealth for themselves and
families, I wish to state a few facts in
regard to the Canadian Northwest,
where I went, leaving Sault Ste. Marie
on Mny 2, 18'Jt), for the purpose of seek
ing :t better home for my family In the
future. I got a special rate ticket for
Ft. MeLeod, Alberta. Through Mani
toba aud part of Asslnlbola the farm
ers were busily employed ploughing
and seeding. I found tbe farmers very
kind and friendly, willing to talk and
assist in glviug me the particulars of
the country. At MeLeod I spent a few
days lookiug over some ranchers' stock,
which I was surprised to see looking
so well; they were In better condition
than any stock I ever saw In Michigan,
even those that had been stabled, and
most of these had never seen tbe Inside
of a shed or received any feed from
the hands of man. But as I was look
ing for mixed farm land, I found Me
Leod no place for me; It Is only fit for
Retracing my way back to Winnipeg,
I stopped off at Lethbridge, where I
found some of the greatest horse
ranches I ever had the pleasure of look
ing at; It lsji line, level country and
lots of water aud good grazing. At
Medicine Hat, which Is located In a Tal
ley. there were lots of sheep, cattle and
horses in the surrounding country and
til looking well.
On July 14 I went on to Reglna.
There I liegan to see mixed farming
lauds In abundance, and the crops look
ing remarkably well, and a long as
daylight lasted I saw the same all
nlong the line, and on the 15th day of
July I arrived In Winnipeg, just In time
for the exhibition. There I met with
one of the most beautiful pictures of
the world's records, for as soon as I
entered the grounds my eyes met with
all kiuds of machinery, all In motion,
aud the cattle, grain and produce of
the country was far beyond my ex
pectation. In fact It was beyond any
Industrial exhibition or agricultural
fair I ever visited, and I have seen a
From Iteglna to Prince Albert, a dis
tance of 2.10 miles, It Is all good for
mixed farming, and well settled, with
Borne thriving little towns. In some
places the grain, just coming Into head',
would take a man to the waist, and
the wild fruit along the line was good,
rich and In great quantities. From Sas
katoon on the south branch of the Sas
katchewan river, to Prince Albert on
the north branch of the Saskatchewan
river. Is oue of the best farming dis
tricts, without any doubt, that ever
laid face to the sun, and everything to
be found there that is necessary to
make life comfortable, all that Is re
quired Is labor. There Is lots of wood,
good water and abundant hay land,
and the climate Is excellent.
Prince Albert Is a flourishing little
place, situated on the north Saskatche
wan river, having a population of
about 1,800, with good streets and side
walks and churches of nearly every de
nomination, three school houses and
another one to be built at once, also a
brewery and creamery. - Here I stayed
for about four mouths, working at my
trade of brick laying, and met with
farmers and ranchers, with whom I
made it my special business to talk In
regard to the prospects. I also visited
several farmers for some distance out
in the country while crops were In full
bloom, and I may say that I never saw
better crops In all my travels than I
saw along the valley towards Stoney
ereek and Carrot river. In the market
garden there Is grown currants, both
red and black, and as line n sample of
roots and vegetables as ever went on a
market. The soli In and around this
district cannot be beaten for anything
you may wish to grow, and besides the
season Is long, giving rime for every
thing to mature. The cattle were look
ing as good as I saw anywhere, good
pasture and hay land, and plenty of
water wherever you go; the country Is
"dotted all around like islands with tim
ber Dt for fuel and building purposes,
and within a day's walk ot lumbering
woods, where lumbering and tie-making
Is carried on in winter. Both large
and small game is plentiful. There are
two good sawmills In this district, with
a good supply of all grades of lumber
all the year round, and: also two good
brickyards with an excellent quality
of brick. There Is no scarcity of build
ing material and at a reasonable price;
clothing and living are no higher than
I find In Michigan, and furthermore I
wish to say that there Is a great de
mand for laboring men all the year
round, and good wages, ranging from
$1.73 to f 2 per day, and from ?23 to $33
per month with board.
I wish to say that I am perfectly sat
isfied with the country, and I intend to
return to Prince Albert early in the
spring of 1000. Any reasonable man
can go there and In from five to ten
years make a good comfortable homo
for himself and family, and If any per
son Into whose hand this letter should
fall desires more Information, please
write to me and I will freely give them
my best opinion. I am writing this for
the beueilt of those who may want to
make a better home for themselves and
families or friends.

The Missing Llae.
Bobby was writing his regular week
ly "composition," for It was la the old
days when compositions and declama
tions formed a part of the school exer
cises every Friday afternoon.
The subject of Bobby's essay was
'True Manhood," and he wished to end
It with a poetical quotation. He gnaw
ed his penholder, scratched his head,
and looked at tle ceiling, but the quo
tation would not come.
Then he turned to his elder sister.

that comes after this: 'Honor and
fame from no condition rise?' "
"I know," spoke up his younger sis
ter, and she promptly quoted:
" 'Vinegar never catches flies.' "
