THE FLAGS WERE UNFURLED
And Floated to the Breezes Yes
terday at Noon.
PRETTY CUSTOM OBSERVED
The Public School Children Taught to Give.
Interesting Exercises at the Flag
Presentations.
The day before Thanksgiving is usual
ly observed by the public schools of Bir
mingham with appropriate exercises.
The pupils are taught that while it Is not
a duty to make a donation for the poor,
yet it is a privilege they should not fail
to embrace. •
With each recurring Thanksgiving the
bright boys and girls who attend the va
rious public schools contribute liberally
to charity, and they do it with a cheer
fulness that reflects the pure sentiments
of a noble nature. The gratitude of
children who are less fortunately situ
ated than themselves is ample compensa
tion for all the troubles the pupils have
had in collecting the articles for dis
tribution. On this day of thanks they
feel grateful that they are able to les
sen the burden of some unfortunate be
ing.
Thanksgiving Day being a national
holiday, the public schools are not in
session, and for that reason the exercises
are held the day before.
Yesterday’s exercises, however, were
unusually interesting, made so by the
fact that the national colors for the first
time were to float from the buildings.
The generosity of several public spirited
gentlemen prompted them to present to
the city schools United States flags, and
yesterday was the time agreed upon for
the presentation to take place.
Flag for the City Hall.
' Imbued with the same patriotic senti
ment, the Trades’ Council of Birmingham
—embracing nearly all the labor organi
zations in the city—requested the privi
lege of giving the city a United States
flag to float from the masthead of the
cjty hall. Mayor VanHoose, in behalT of
the city, accepted the offer, and accord
ingly the presentation occurred at 10
o'clock yesterday.
At that hour the fire bell rang thirteen
times, once for each of the original
states, and immediately thereafter Mr.
W. H. Stanley of the Plasterers’ union,
In behalf of the Trades Council, mounted
an improvisedl stand, and in a few well
selected and patriotic words presented
the flag to the city. He was followed bit
Mr. J. R. McMullen of the American
Railway union, and Mayor VanHoose,
In behalf of the city, accepted the colors.
The flag is regulation size—9x15 feet.
At a given signal the colors were hoisted
by Mr. George deWhiting of Camp Har
dee. United Confederate Veterans, and
Mr. Stone of Post Custer, Grand Army of
the Republic, assisted by Chief Mullen
of the fire department, who had accom
panied them to the tower of the city
hall. Thirteen salutes were fired to the
flag of our country, and three hearty
cheers given.
Delegations were present from Camp
Hardee and Post Custer.
The High School.
A number of visitors attended the ex
ercises at the high school yesterday
noon.
After the singing of the doxology by
the pupils of the school President Cleve
land's and Governor Oates’ proclama
tions were read by Col. J. J. Altman.
Fitting and appropriate addresses were
made by Mayor VanHoose, Gen. Fred S.
Ferguson of Camp Hardee, United Con
federate Veterans; Maj. W. H. Hunter
on behalf of the Grand Army of the Re
public and Superintendent Harris of the
Mississippi public schools.
One of the pleasant features of the
programme was the admirable selection
read by Miss Mollie Smith. The flag was
presented by General Ferguson.
The following original verses were read
by Prof. S. L. Robertson:
God grant this act be understood.
And reverence done, result in good:
May He propitious breezes send
To float this banner towards the skies;
Grant stalwart bosoms to defend
The principles it typifies
When anarchy or misrule lowers—
God bless this flag of our’s.
May He who still sustains the cause
Of those obedient to his laws
Grant that the arm which this flag holds
Up In the name of freedom given,
May strenuous wave its starry folds
Before the face of man and heaven,
Defying all despotic powers—
God bless this flag of our’s.
May He who stablishes each folk
Who was against the tyrant's yoke
Still nerve the hero’s arm and hand
Which upward points its staff, to bear
It through each shock that shocks the
land.
And in the name of right declare
The righteous purpose it empowers—
God bless this flag of our’s.
May He who helps the brave, the just
[Who In Him* faithful put their trust,
| Grant that this people of the west,
I ’Twixt southern cross and polar star,
Shall In behalf of the oppressed
This banner hoist In peace and war
O’er bristling ranks or city towers—
God bless this flag of our’s.
May Tie who talketh in the breeze
And lendeth tongues to stones and trees
Give this, our nag. inspiring speech
To ev’ry nation 'neath the skies
Our legend, "peace, good" will to teach.
Which legend this flag typifies
Front northern lakes to southern bowers—
God bless this flag of our's.
May He who holds us in his hand.
Help us to see and understand
The vault 'neath which this banner floats
Expresses perfect unity;
And could those stars speak, from their
throats.
Like Inspiration sent, 'twould be
Uttered In perfect silvery showers
God bless this Hag of our's.
Grant while its azure field we view.
Spangled with stars like yonder blue.
Our people free may apprehend
The lesson by yon blue vaults given.
And to each other bright smiles send,
As do, methinks, the stars of heaven.
In shine and storm, through all the hours.
God bless this flag of our’s.
May He who binds and looses grant
This Hag o’er all the west to flaunt.
Let it float free as heaven's breath
Which lifts it on triumphant wings.
Long may it be our shibboleth,
Spoken defiant to all kings.
To God alone this banner lowers—
God bless this flag of our’s.

5. Address, Mayor VanHoosd.
Dr. O. T. Dozier read the following
poem, written by him for the occasion:
Behold the flag above us raised,
'Tis freedom’s emblem true;
The flag most grand that floats on land
Or on the waters blue.
Supremely blessed by nature’s God,
Its stars with glory shine,
And everywhere Us folds appear
There freedom has a shrine.
No despot dares to touch Its folds,
No nation dares despise;
Its every star and every bar
Ten million patriots prize.
Long may it wave, long may it wave,
Above the land and sea,
A beacon bright our hearts to light
With love of liberty.
Let tyrants stand and be dismayed
Whene’er that flag they see—
This union grand was made to stand
As long as time shall be.
And in this land of liberty,
Made sacred by our dead.
We’ve sworn to God their sacred sod
No tyrants’ feet shall tread.
See in its stripes the rainbow hues,
See in its stars the light
Which God has lent and gladly sent
To make its pathway bright,
And see the heaven kissing winds
It’s lovely form embrace,
Whil'at clouds in air I may declare
Seem jealous of its grace.
And while that banner proudly floats
O’er freedom’s wide domain,
Let despots hand or traitor band
E’er dare that flag to stain,
We’ll show to na^ons of the world
That we, though late in strife.
That flag will keep on land and deep
Or ’nea/th it give up life.
Yes, yes! thatj flag we’ll ever keep
And proudly tell the story.
How it was born on freedom’s morn
To live in endless glory,
And tell of victories grandly won.
Both on the land and sea,
When war storms ’rose and foreign foes
Opposed our liberty.
No other land ’neath heaven’s dome
Can match our banner there.
Then give a cheer, loud and clear,
For freedom’s banner dear,
Long may it wave, long may it wave,
All praise to It be given,
So bright and fair, beyond compare,
The grandest flag ’neath heaven.
Mr. A. P. Stone of Post Custer. Grand
Army of the Republic, addressed the as
semblage as follows:
Pupils, Teachers and Friends:
In hearty appreciation of the kind in
vitation extended to George A. Custer
post of the Grand Army by your city and
school officers a little group conies
among you to share in the pleasures of
this occasion, when, with songs and pa
triotic cheers, you send aloft our national
flag over this noble edifice, your home
of learning. It ought to be, and is, an
event of more than ordinary interest,
awakening our enthusiasm and stimulat
ing our national pride.
The students of history and geography
are the first to catch a glimpse of our
national greatness and realize “'what
God hath wrought” on this western con
tinent. Favored among nations is this
fair realm that stretches from sea to
sea, and our flag waves over it all, in
spiring every good work and proclaiming
liberty, justice and protection to all
therein.
You proudly live to say, “I am an
American,” because you were born un
der that beauttful flag.
Young friends, you now have a pro
prietary interest in that flag, as It is
yours, a gift from your city’s mayor;
respect it as such, and remember one
star in it has a peculiar interest to you,
for it signifies that your beloved state is
one of the great sisterhood of the United
States of America.
The motto of the Grand Army of the
Republic is “Fraternity, Charity and
Royalty." and you here today perfectly
exemplify those principles and senti
ments when you cd.ll us together and bid
us rejoice with you, sharing alike your
good will, hospitality and patriotism.
THEY COME!

THE WORLD’S WONDER, j
Barney Baldwin, the Broken-Neck Man, Opens
His Museum in the Opera House
Block, ,

Nearly everybody who lived in Bir
mingham in 1887 heard of the peculiar
accident that happened to Mr. Barfley
Baldwin, at that time in the Louisville
and Nashville yards. He was yardmas
ter for the company, and was thrown un
der a train one evening. The accident
was attended with what everybody then
believed to be serious injuries. His neck,
right arm, one leg and several of his
ribs were broken. He was well-known
and very popular with railroad men, and
his friends had no idea that he could
live. However, owing to the skill of Dr.
J. B. Luckie, who attended Mr. Baldwin,
the latter did live and is living today,
though the bones in his neck have never
knit together. His head is kept in an
upright position by means of an iron
frame, which was specially made for
the purpose. When this is removed his
head drops forward on his chest. His
case is remarkable, because it is the only
one known to surgical authorities wher.e
the patient recovered from a broken
neck.
Mr. Baldwin is on exhibition in tne
opera house block, where he has opened
up a museum where the public may see
him for the next ten days. He has trav
eled extensively in Europe and America
since his accident, and has amassed a
considerable amount of money. When
he Was In London last he secured an en
tertaining expose of spiritualism, which
he offers in connection with his lecture
and exhibition.
Mr. Baldwin accepts his condition phil
osophically, and while, he says, he would
prefer to have his neck as it was before,
still he enjoys good health, and he de
rives some consolation also from the
fact that he is one of the world’s won
ders. He gives to charity with a gener
ous hand, always diverting a proportion
of his receipts to charitable enterprises.
The admission to the museum is only
10 cents, and all who avail themselves
of the opportunity to see his exhibition
will lie instructed and entertained.
THE CHIEF OF CHEFS.
That’s What Birmingham Can Boast of This
Th: nksgiving Day.
Unanimity of opinion as to who knows
how to furnish a genuine Thanksgiving
dinner is going to he forcibly illustrated
in Birmingham today by the well filled
tables, beautifully arranged and bounte
ously laden at Paul’s Tratorla and Res
taurant, in the Erswell block on Nine
teenth street. This is not the first
Thanksgiving dinner ever prepared by
this great Chief of Chefs, and all Bir
mingham prays it will not be the last, for
Paul is part of Birmingham. Without
him the people who like good eating j
would be lost if not hungry.
Some one asked a friend and regular
patron of Paul's what was meant by
T-r-a-t-t-o-r-i-a, and his answer was that
after indulging in the past time of seat
ing himself just one time at the elegant
tables there could be but one definition,
and that is a place where you can get
everything good to eat in the catagory of
edibles, served in the highest style of the
The patron may not have given a class

of common sense. What we intended to
say was that Paul will today spread a
Thanksgiving dinner fit for^be gods,and.
dear reader, he will have a plate for you.

sit down. Paul will do the rest.

THINGS DRAMATIC.
The dress circle and gallery at
O'Brien's opera house was turned over to
the negroes'last night, and they filled
nearly every seat in those two floors.
The parquet was reserved for white peo
ple, and about half the seats were sold.
The attraction was Richards & Prin
gle's Original Georgia minstrels, and
they put up a splendid performance,
giving entire satisfaction.
Billy Kersands, the best negro come
dian on the stage today, was in good
form, and kept the audience in an up
roar the entire time he was before them.
He has been in the business a long time
and thoroughly understands the art of
amusing. As a whole the company is
good and they gave a performance that
pleased.
“The Fatal Card.”
"The Girl I Left Behind Me" was
booked to appear last season at the Adel
phla, London, but was crowded out ow
ing to the success of "The Fatal Card,”
which the management decided to keep
on all the season. The story of “The
Fatal Card,” briefly, is as follows:
The principal character Is a villain,
who, after almost losing his life for
cheating at cards in a western mining
camp, goes to Kngland, acquires wealth
and settles down as the leader of a
gang of svvlndlers. The suitor for his
daughter's hand discovers his guilt, and
the villain decides to destroy the man
who knows his secret with an Infernal
machine, but suddenly finds, however,
that his proposed victim Is the man who
once saved his life. His daughter ap
pears on the scene just as the bomb is
about to explode, and he hurls the dead
ly thing through the window. The ex
plosion wrecks the building and the vil
lain perishes, while his daughter and her
lover escape. There is a great deal of
comedy interspersed throughout the
play, the bathing scene being a very lu
dicrous affair.
