"Never you mindwe're going to mind

Ned Wilson's word went, for he was the
oldest, and there was no further demur.
Besides that, duty engrossed the two
boys the rest of that day. •

The former was eating supper with his
mother, the latter absorbed in reflections
jf the absent, almost the missing one,
3OW.
Suddenly there was a terrific hullaba
loo, comprised of shouts, firecrackers,
iurrahings.
Ned ran to the window.
"For mercy's sake!" he ejaculated.
"What is it, NedV" rather startled, and
:remulously inquired Mrs. Wilson, aris
ng more slowly.
"It's Tom!"
"He isn't—hurt, or "
"Acts as if he was crazy!"
Tom did. In full view, ho was coming
lown the dusty road.
Trooping after him were a dozen or
nore vociferous youngsters with whom
ne had ever been- a favorite.
They were making the welkin ring, and
navy a lad was burning his fingers in his |
irdor to help swell the commotion, and
kvas using up the prized ammunition of
Lhe morrow.
Tom burst into the room, drenched with
lerspiration, panting for breath, but with
>yes aflame with emotion and vitality.
"See here!" challenged Ned.
"No—look there!"
Tom flung his bundle of extras upon the
able.
His mother nearly fainted. Even a cas
tal glance showed at the top of the glar
ng headlines a name familiar.
"John W Tilson,"—"hero"—"daring deed."
-oh, it was news from the absent one,
jut was it news of glory, but also of
ieath?
"Father!" she choked.
"Is all right!" piped Tom. "Read here,
Ved—read here! Father was 'looking for
,vork'—say, mother! he found it!"
"Where? Where?" faltered the sus
>ense-rocked wife and mother.
"Battleship—you know what a boss
?unner he is! Met the enemy, pulled an

md -"
Coherent consideration of the news the
japer gave proved that Tom had not ex
iggerated.
Skill and opportunity had combined to
?ive John Wilson a chance to "knock out"
i Spanish ironclad "at the right minute."
He had concededly turned the tide of
'avor leading up to the capture of a rich
y freighted consort,
" 'Prize money.'—why, he can pay off
he mortgage!" cried the exuberant Ned.
"Promotion—it will glorify his later
lays!" murmured Mrs. Wilson thankfully.
"Where's the gun?" demanded irrepres
sible Tom.
"Hold on! What guv?" interfered Ned.
"Father's old musket."
"Why "
"We're going to celebrate!"
"No —he left orders—'fire it off when
3uba is free!' "
"Free!" fairly yelled the sanguine and
•xcitod Tom. "With such men as him
jeppering the foe, she's practically free
vlready!"
"Well, I suppose " began Ned, in
faint demur.
Above all other reports that boomed in
:he morning of July Fourth, 1808, that
5 red by proud, patriotic Tom Wilson
seemed to him the loudest ever was.
"Wonder if they heard that in Cuba?"
ac gloated.
"They're hearing some other reports
from its owner, I reckon," smiled Ned.
"Say!" declared the ardent Tom, "didn't
it make a thundering report?"

UNCLE SAM'S FOURTH OF JULY INCUBUS.
< GRAND OLD FASHIONED WAY.
Get ready, boys, to make a nola©
On Independence day.
For we're about to have It oat
In grand old fashioned way.
At dawn we'll raise our flag ablaze
And watch It proudly fly,
Its blue and 6tars and crimson bars
Reflected on the sky.
Then while bells clang and anvils bang
And cannon thunders roar
We'll give the cheer that slaves may hear
Upon the old world's shore.
We'll yell and screech and make a speech
About our glorious nation
And brag that we on land or sea
Can wallop all creation.
AS AN OBJECT LESSON.
The Real Meaning of the Noise and
Fun of the Fourth.
We confess to a large degree of sym
pathy with the irrepressible Impulse oi
the American small boy—to say nothing
of boys of larger growth—to fire off Chin
ese crackers and other din-producing ex
plosives on the Fourth of July. Not that
we particularly enjoy the noise. It is not
always easy to keep one's temper on even
keel through the "long, long weary day,"
of ceaseless turmoil of patriotic powder
burning and the 6inell of "villainous salt
petre." Yet less and less, as the years
go by, are we disposed to object to this
outward and visible sign of the inward
grace of patriotic nrdor. Undirected, it
is true, thie impulse to effervescent racket
on the put of boys and men, on the one
unrestricted day of the year, may mean
nothing to them but license to make a
noise; but, wisely used, this differentia
tion of the day may be made the means of
Inculcating patriotic sentiment in a more
impressive way than would otherwise,
perhaps, be possible. The mass of man
kind still learn great lessons best through
the medium of symbols. In this respect,
we have not advanced very far beyond
"them of old time." The heap of srtones
taken from the bed of Jordan spoke not
more truly to the children of Israel of the
great things wrought for them there than
does "Independence day" to us of our
fathers' mighty deeds; and so, Instead of
flouting at the noisy demonstrations of
our boys on this dtiy, let us utilize its
observance to teach them the real meanr
ing which lies back of their noisy fun,
and thus lead their minds up to a broader
conception of the truths for which the
celebration of the Fourth of July stands

THE MILITARY GIRL.
A New Type Brought About by Our
War with i pain.
With a bound the military girl has
sprung into fashion. One of her ways
is the temporary abolition of the kiss
so far ns other girls are concerned.
Meeting her dearest friend, she salutes
In a true army way. Bhe does not
grab her or remark, "You dear thing!"
The arms of both girls are raised
promptly to their hats, and then shoved
out with a quick movement. Then they
are dropped to their sides and stay
there.
The walk of the military girl is
marked by a firm step forward, a rather
longer step than usual, and the shoul
ders are held well back, the head stead
ily up, with the eyes looking straight
forward, and the chest Is thrown well
out This new*type of girl when she
turns swings around cleanly on her
THE MIMTABY Glßl
heels, for all the world like a genuine
army man.
The new military conversation, or
rather the host of military phrases,
heard these days Is exceedingly inter
esting. A girl returns from some shop
ping expedition. Before the war was
started she would have said very sim
ply: "111 go op and tell mother about
it* Now her phrase is. 'Til go and
give the countersign to mother." Or,
telling a sister to say such and such
to her father, she will say, "Report to
headquarters."*
"Advance into the other room," is
the proper way to put it now, and, in
stead of speaking of going up or down
stairs you should say, if you would be
realty Id form nowadays* "I'm going
aloft," or "I'm going below."
Betaking one's self to one's downy
couch is expressed by the words, "I'm
going to turn in,* and on the street.
When two, or three 6t four girts are
walking together, there are often to be
heard these words of command, "Right
about facer and "Forward, march I"

Gen. Wesley Merritt Baa Woo the
Heart of a Handsome Chicago Girl.
Miss Laura Williams, of Chicago,
whose betrothal to Gen. Wesley Mer
ritt was announced recently, and
whose marriage will take plnce on the
General's return from the Philippines,
Is a handsome and attractive young
woman of 20. Her hair and complex
ion are very light, and she is tall and
slender. She is fond of horseback rid
ing, bicycling, golf, and outdoor sports,
and is very wealthy. Miss Williams
is a granddaughter of the late John D.
Oaton, who left an immense fortune
and made her one of his principal heirs.
Her father, Norman Williams, found
ed the Chicago Telephone Company
and the Eastern Electric Company. He
drew up the papers forming the Pull
man Palace Oar Company, and was a
delegate to the Paris Electrical Expo
sition in 1882. Despite the disparity
In the ages of Gen. Merritt and his be
trothed, he being over 60, it is a case
of genuine love on both sides.
A Verbal Struggle.
Fifty long names have been invented
and used for the apparatus by which
photographs from a succession of pic
tures are thrown on a screen and made
to appear as moving figures. "Bio
graph" and "motograph" are the sim
plest "Panoramograph" and "chrono
photographoscope" are among the long
est. "Cinematograph" and "kineto
scope" are among the most common in
ose. *Phantoscope" and "vitagraph"
are the most poetical sounding. "Theat
ograph" and "motorscope" are not bad.
What lobsterscope'* and "cormlno
graph" are derived from no one but the
inventors know. Here is a fine chance
for the struggle for existence among
fifty words. May the best word win
and the fittest survive.—Hartford Cour

Turks and Jews, as well •• Chris
tians,aocording to The Kolnschie Yolks-
Beitaiig, have been much excited by
the sound of the three bells of the new
Protestant Church in Jerusalem. For
several centuries the use of bells by the
Christians in Palestine, or elsewhere
within the Ottoman Empire, had been
prohibited by the Great Turk, who has
conceded it now, however, to his friend
and ally, the Evangelical German Kai
ser. In . the Theatre de la Turquie,
published in 1688, it is said, "The
Turks hate bells, as a symbol of Chris
tianity, and do not permit even the
Christians to use them. Only in a few
remote mountain convents, ■ox in lonely
islands, where there >. are no resident
Mohammedians, is the use of a bell
tolerated. .
