Up with the flag ! Up with the flag we love! Till its colors flutter from every roof And merge with the skies above, And our eyes shall fill and our hearts shall thrill With the joy that is always new, At the grand old sight of the red and white, And the stars in a field of blue. Let our flag unfurled to a watching world Be proof that we keep our trust, That we take our part with a valiant heart In a cause that we know is just! ETIQUETTE OF THE FLAG. Here are the correct ways to display the United Htates flag: The flag should be raised at sun rise, or after, never before. The flag must be lowered at sunset. It is a mark of disrespect to fly the flag through the night. When the flag is hung against a wall, the blue field should be in the upper left hand corner if the stripes are horizontal, or In the upper right hand corner If the stripes are perpen dicular. Hunting, for decorations, should be placed with the red at the top, whit© below and blue at the bottom. A flag used as a street banner i should be hung across the street at an j equal distance between curbs. United States laws forbid the use of the flag In registered trademarks or for advertising purposes. In no case should the flag be al lowed to touch the ground. A flag reversed, with the blue field down, is a sign of distress. To display the flag at half mast, 1n ease of national mourning or other calamity, the proper way to raise It is to the top, then lower it a little. Re fore it is lowered, it Is proper to raise the flag first to the top. On the death of a president, the BY BERTON BRALEY. Let it float on high, and if men must die To keep It from blot or stain, They shall meet their fate with souls elate— They shall not die in vain. For the flag still holds in its ample folds The spell of its olden flame, And our pulses leap and we burn down deep With a wonderful, quenchless flame; As the flag flings free for all to see In the sweep of the winds above, Up with the flag! Up with the flag! Up with the flag we love! THE HIS TORY OF O LD GLORY Old Glory* as we know it, is the result of many changes. In tlie early days of the revolution there were almost as many standards as there were com manders. Every roan who raised a regiment of colonists seems to have designed a flag of liis own fancy. Most of these ancestors of the "Stars and Stripes" were copied upon the arms of the colony from which the revolutionary soldiers came. A month after the battle of Hunker Hill General Putnam displayed a red flag with the coat of arms of Connecticut. Many of the revolutionary privateers adopted a flag bearing a mailed fist grasping 13 arrows. At Cambridge, 177ti, Washington flew a flag with 13 red and white stripes, such as the flag bears today, but with a reproduction of the British union jack In the place now occupied by the blue field and stars. The most famous of all the continental flags, however, was the rattlesnake banner with the motto, "Don't tread on me!" This was carried in many parts of the country. Congress adopted a resolution June 4, 1777. stating: "That the flag of the 13 United States be 13 stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be 13 stars, white in a blue field, representing tlie new constellation." The design may have been inspired by the Washington coat of arms, which had both stars and stripes. It was apparently the intention to add both a stripe and a star for every new state admitted, but in 1818 the number of states had increased to 20 and the flag was rapidly getting out of shape Congress altered the design to the style wc now use. ! flag should ho displayed only one day th*- flag is raised to the top of th© at half mast, according to regulation, staff, where it remains until sunset. The flag is at half mast only half June 14, the anniversary of the a day on Memorial day. At midday i adoption of the flag, is Flag day. Hi Today is the one hundred and forty-second anniversary of the ride of Paul Revere, and here is Longfellow's poem describing that famous event of our early history: listen, my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, On the eighteenth of April, in Sev enty-five: Hardly a man is now' alive Who remembers that famous day and year. He said to his friend,—"If the British march By land or sea from the town tonight. Hang a lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North church tower, as a signal light,— One if by land, and two if by sea. And I on the opposite shore will be. Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farjn. For the country-folk to be up and to arm." Then he said good-night, and w'ith muffled oar Silently row'd to the Charlestown shore. Just as the moon rose over the bay. Where swinging wide at her moorings lay The Somerset, British man-of-war: A phantom ship, with each mast and spar Across the moon, like a prisonbar, And a huge, black hulk, that was magnified By its own reflection in the tide. Meanwhile his friend, through alley and street. Wanders and watches with eager ears. Till in the silence around him he hears The muster of men at the barrack door. The sound of amis, and the tramp of feet. And the measured tread of the grenadiers Marching down to their boats on the shore. Then he climb'd to the tower of the Old North church. Up the wooden stairs, with stealthy tread. To the belfry-chamber overhead. And startled the pigeons from their perch On the sombre rafters, that round him made Masses and moving shapes of shade; Bv the trembling ladder. st«p and tall. To the highest window In the wall, Where he paused to listen and look dow'n A moment on the roofs of the quiet town. And the moonlight flowing over all. Beneath In the churchyard lay the dead In their night encampment on the hill. Wrapped in silence so deep and still That he could hear, like a sentinel's tread, The watchful night wind as it went Creeping along from tent to tent And seeming to whisper "All is well." A moment only he feels the spell Of the place and the hour and the se cret dread Of the lonely belfry and the dead. For suddenly all his thoughts are bent On a shadowy something far away. Where the river widens to meet the bay— A line of black that bends and floats On the rising tide, like a bridge of boats. Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride. Booted and spurr'd, with a heavy stride. On the opposite shore walk'd Paul Revere. Now* he patted his horse's side. Now* gazed on the landscape far and near, Then impetuous stamp'd the earth. And turn'd and tighten'd his saddle girth; But mostly he watch'd with eager search The belfry-tower of the Old North church. As it rose above the graves on the hill. Lonely, and spectral, and sombre. and still. And, lo! as he looks, on the betffy's height. A glimmer, and then a gleam of light! He springs to the saddle, the bridle he turns. But lingers and gazes, till full on hts sight A second lamp in the belfry burns! A hurry of hoofs in a village street. A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark. And beneath from the pebbles, in j passing, a spark Struck out by a steed that flies fear- ; less and fleet: That was all! And yet. through the j gloom and the light The fate of a nation was riding that night; And the spark struck out by that , steed, in his flight. Kindled the land into flame with its j heat. He has left the village and mounted the steep And beneath him, tranquil and broad and deep, Is the Mystic, meeting the ocean tides; And under the alders that skirt its edge. Now soft on the .«and, now loud on the ledge. Is heard the trartip of his steed as he rides. It was twelve by the village clock When he crossed the bridge into Med ford town. He heard the crowing of the cock And the barking of the farmer's dog And felt the damp of the river fog That rises after the sun goes down. It was one by the village clock When he galloped into I^exington. He saw the gilded weather cock Swim In the moonlight as he passed. And the meeting house windows. blank and bare. Gazed at him with a spectral glare As if they already stood aghast At the bloody work they would look upon. It was two by the village clock When he came to the bridge In Con cord town. He heard the bleating of the flock. And the twitter of birds among the trees. And felt the breath of the morning breeze Blowing over the meadow's brown. And one was safe and asleep in his bed Who at the bridge would be first to fall. Who that day w'ould be lying dead. Pierced by a Britisn muskei-balL You know the rest. In the books you have read How the British regulars fired and [ I I j ! I ; j fled; How the farmers gave them ball for ball. I From behind each fence and farm yard-wall, I Chasing the red-coats down the lane, j Then crossing the fields to emerge again ! Under the trees at the turn of the road, I And only pausing to fire and load. So through the night rode Paul Re vere; And so through the night went his cry of alarm To every Middlesex village and farm.— A cry of defiance, and not of fear.— A voice In the darkness, a knock at the door. And a word that shall echo forever more! For borne on the night-wind of the Past Through all our history, to the last. In the hour of darkness, and peril, and need, The people will waken and listen to hear The hurrying foot-beat of that steed. And the midnight message of Paul Revere. —HENRY LONGFELLOW.
