Eddie bought some powder he put it in a bowl; Riliv stuck a match In it: bless his little soul! The June bride is always all right but let us pay a moment's tribute t the June bridegroom. If it wasn't fr him there would be no June brides. One of the most satisfying things connected with the return of Colonel Roosevelt is the assurance we have from nil sides that his visit to the ntripa of the old world has not merely given fresh luster to a name al ready widely distinguished, but great er dignity to American manhood and American character everywhere. Pre ceded by a reputation which gave large measure of justification to even exaggerated popular expectation, it cannot but be a pleasing reflection to Americans of all shades of opinion that he who has been regarded by the leading nations of the eastern hemi sphere during the last few weeks a3 the foremost American representative abroad should, under a scrutiny unpar alleled In these later times, have ac quitted himself so creditably; so ad mirably. The cTowth of fratcrnallsm In th United States during the past 30 years has been most phcnomlnal, com ments the Pet rev t News, The coining convention of the Elks, on' of the great order which exemplifies the "hail Tellow, well met!" spirit of the Amer ican people will give us a plottiresqu illustration of tills modern movement, thl.i fratcrnallzing so provocative of good-fi llowshlp, charity und humanity. Fraternal asoclations are as old as so ciety Itself. They are concurrent In thvir development with tho church, and have boon a power since the days of the Templars. Tho German and En ish trade puild kept alight tha fires of human liberty through the dark ages. The Chaldeans, the Iorians and the Egyptians 6.0m) years ago had their aspects. I'.ut the history of their development, of thir vicissitude and their renaissances shows us nothing comparable- with the present growth In America. Two years ago the member fhlp of the fraternal societies In this country was 10,104, S61. nearly every second man being adulated with a fraternity. The Oddfellow. Masons, and .Modern Woodmen number their followers by the 1,000,000, Pythlans, Rodmen and Maccabees by the half million, and Foresters. Eagle and Elks by the quarter Million. The Elks 1n 100 numbered 200,000. This Is truly the "ago of fraternallsm." The bonds of sympathy and of comradeship were never stronger than now. The Jeffries-Johnson fight promoters received almost a knock-nut blow yes terday afternoon when Oov. Gillett took steps to stop tho big fight In Cal ifornia on July 4. Rut tho promoters nre not yet ready to throw up the sponge and if they find they cannot pull tho mill off In the land of orange and fleas they will take it to Reno, where the burly pugs can grind at i-aeh other to their hearts' content for the edification and enlightenment of a vast concourse. Anything goes in Rem, arnl Reno would be glad to have Jeff and Jack spill a little "l.lud" there for the notoriety and coin it woulel receive on the side. No doubt the efforts of Han Francis. co to get the International celebration on the occasion of tho opening of tho Fanama canal had something to do "With the derision of th; governor to stop the fight If possible. Tho cham ber of rnmmorro of that city was re cently Informed congress might take unfavorable action on the resolution now before It, naming Frisco as the Ida ee for tho eelebratlnn, as moral sen timent Is against the Jeffries-Johnson battle. It looks that way. for the governor ha shown no disposition heretofore to put an end to the pro posed exhibition of tho manly art which has boon the talk of the country for many months. It Is not by nil moans certain thnt the fight cannot be pulled off In California, and a decision on this question will be forthcoming In a day me ureater Hancock club" I doing things, and it hasn't been organized very long, either. It was formed pri mar.iy to put Hancock "on the map," literally as well as figuratively, tor is a well known fact that the majority of railroad map of the country omit Hancock, while Houghton Is cmblaz oned in large type. Again Hancock has been neglected In the past by Junketing parties and other distin guished visitors. Hancock haa suf re red because of the advertising Houghton has received, and In large measure Hancock Itself has been re sponsible for the state of affairs which lias kept it in the background. Hut this neglect to shout Its advantages from, the house tops has been due to the fact that Hancock has been too busy with its own affairs and the up building of the city to find time to cul tivate wide-spread attention in the outside world. A glance at Hancock is proof (f this. No town in the upper peninsula has grown more rapidly or made more improvements than the only city in the copper country, and its progress and development into a thor oughly metropolitan community are Indicative of the pride its people take in the Internal affairs of their city. Now the business men have come to a realization of the fact that it is time to pay more attention to putting Han cock on the map, to let the outside world know it la some pumpkins. The old order of things is to be changed, and in the future Hancock will be heard from through the efforts of its boosters' club. This organization is pre pared to accomplish results and al ready it has scored its tlrst triumph, that of prevailing upon the Chicago business men's party, now em the way to the copper country to strengthen business relations, to visit the city. The steamer bearing the excursionists will call at Hancock and take a big party of Hancock reside nts for a trip on the lake, during which the Hancock Roosters will be busy. Hancock is as sured of its just dues at last "The appalling ravages of 'Fourth of July Tetanus.'" is the subject of an exhaustive and enlightening article in the June Review of Reviews. It may surprise many a citizen to know that a very rational and earnest movement against the use of fireworks on Indepe ndence day is now in its sev enth year; nr Is it universally real ized how many children have, by rea son of these yearly celebrations, suf- iered the most cruel death known to medical science. Were any such emo tion possible In the English breast. that of satisfaction for the losses and humiliations endured by England in the war for independence at least so far as human life is concerned could hardly be more thoroughly justified; for. taking no account whatever of our national losses ef manv decades past, but only ef those incurred in the last three yearly celebrations, the loss of life is frightful. In Ne.w York city alone, . JMs. found. Jha J.VJ, haye lecn killed and Injured more than the cas ualties in the Revolutionary battles of Lexington. Ranker Hill. Fort Moultrie, White Plains, Fort Washington, Mon mouth, and Cowpens combined. Nor have these losses been among fighting men, but rather among little children; ind of the latter wounded on Inde pendence day many that have not lie-d have nevertheless been dreadfully maimed and disfigured for life. Tho American Medical association has gathered most of the statistics up on which the light against the use of fireworks on the glorious Fourth has been based. A year ago it demon strated in Its Journal that In the six preceding years our whole country has shown for that festival a grand total of 29,1:06 killed and wounded. In R03 there were 4l! cases of Fourth of July tetanus; In 1!04, 10," cases; in 1905, 104; in 1906, 89; in 1907, 53 recorded cases, the largest number since- 1903 probably by reason that 'the Fourth coming on Sunday, the celebration was practically e.ne of thre-e days; as It omes this year on Monday, there Is now to be feared another heavy list of dead and injured. It Is interesting al so to note that In lyo.s there were 816 I. ink cartridge wounds, whilst In 1909 the number of wounds from this source was 1,095; and that the states having the largest number of blank cartridge unds had also the largest number of tetanus cases; also that blank cart ridge wounds had a hlgTier percentage of deaths than gunshot wounds. The mest common wound productive, of te- inus e.r lockjaw is that produced by the blank cartridge; this need not be as wide at a church door, nor as dee p as a well; tho merest skin punc ture, perhaps even a scratch, will serve. The blank cartridge, then. is responsible for ment than CO per cent of tetanus cases; tho giant fire cracker (not the small cracke r) for 16 per cent; the toy cannon, 4 per cent; fire-arms, 5 per cent; powder, 10 pe-r cent. Net to excite undue alarm. It should be observed that blank cart ridges will by no means always pro duce tetanus; for the 89 cases devel oped In 1906 there were 979 blank cart ridge wounds; still the disease I so appalling1 that no one will take for his children any chance that the ir wounds will prove innocuous. It Is well for parents to bear these figures In mind, and if they must cel ebrate with fireworks and giant crack ers, to exert every jHissiblo eautlon to prevent accident. "When it clearly appears that there Is a real conflict between them, hum an rights must have the upper hand, for property belongs to man and not man to property." "Tho man who for any e-auso for which he is himself accountable has failed to support hlmse-Jf and those for whom he Is responsible ought to feel that he has fallen lamentably short In his prime duty." J err- ROOSEVElTISmS Some of the Famous Sayings of America's Only lix-Presldcnt Theodore Roosevelt has a faculty for enumerating axioms with such downright sincerity and almost hyp notic force that they seldom sound like commonplace. Here ale some that have or will become famous: Sentimentally Is the the most broken icoel on .which .righteousness can lean."

Countries must be strong In to be good and to help the against the- overbearing." onier weak "Tlie poorest way to lace life is to face it with a sneer. "The man who does nothing cuts the same sordid tlgure in the pages of history, whether he be cynic, or fop. or voluptuary. "There Is little use for the being whose tepid soul knows nothing ed the great and generous emotion, of the high prlde the stern belief, this lofty enthusiasm of the men who quell the storm and ride the thunder. "It is the warworn Hotspur, spent with hard lighting, he of the many errors and the valiant end, over whose memory we love to linger, not ever the memory of the young lord who, but for the vile guns would have been i soldier.' " "It Is a bad thing for a nation to raise and to admire a false- stantlan: of success, and there can be no falser standard than that set by deilleation of material wellbelng In and for it self." "The first essential In any civiliza tion is that the man nnd the woman shall be fathe r and mother of healthy children so that the race shall In crease and not decrease." "The excuse advanced for vicious writing, that the public demands it and that the demand must bo sup plied, can no more be admitted than if It were advanced by the purveyors ef food who sell poisonous adultera tions."
