Every civilized nation has some prom inent and initial day upon which, with appropriate demonstrations, its origin and progress is celebrated, but to no nation other than our own is given the opportunity of celebrating the dawn of a civil aud religious life, which the world seeks to imitate, but which none have comprehended. We can proudly, aud with boasting, say that the Government of the United States is the only govern ment in the whole world where the rich and poor side by side deposit an equal voice for the general weal or woe of the people. We are all sovereigns—all citi zens. The Declaration of Independ ence is an instrument as solemn nnd saered as though inspired from the flaming bush, or from the top of Mount Sinai. it has carried the truth and teachings of the Bible to many a people, and elevated the thermometer of intelli gence until it almost tullies the temper ature of infinite existence. The masses go hand in hand with the cultured intel ligence and rude, though some demon strations may be all, all are inspired by the spirit of liberty, freedom and progress. Such sentiments are the motive-power for the scenes which to-day will take place in regular order. At nine o'clock fharp the procession will start to march to the depot, where the train excursionists will be received at 9:45. Then the march will be taken to the grand stand in the grove on the banks of Wood River, where the liter ary exercises will be held. The second excursion train, which will arrive at 11:40, will be stopped at the grounds. The first thing in the way' of sports will be the shooting-match at nine o'clock. Next the literary exercises, at 11:45. At one o'eolck the second shooting-match, then the races. In the evening the exhibition of athletic sports will take place on the public square in town. At dusk a display of fireworks will be presented. The wrestling and boxing matches in Metropolitan Hall late in the evening complete the day's doings. For further particulars see large posters. i The Philadelphia Smelters. 1 The Philadelphia Smelters continue to cloud the range towering above them ! with tlie smoky breath of their labors, ! while they hatcli a constant stream of The two largo ' : bullion at their base. fifty-ton stacks are in the full vigor of a beautiful rnn, to the pride and gratifi cation of the management, and of this community. The Smelter grounds rep resent an anthill or beehive these days, being alive with active humanity in pursuit of their various duties. Change of shift especially presents an animated scene, and it would do some of our " down the river " neighbor's eyes good : to came tip and witness it. Come on— ' we invite you all. No exclusiveness ! about ns—even if weave not expected at the Hailey Fourth of July ball. Notes Front the Little Smoky Mining District. & The Carrie Leonard mine is making regular shipments by Clark, Teague & Co.'s pack train to the 'Ketchum Smelt Upwards of twenty tons of ore have been shipped during the past ten days that will sample fully 300 ounces silver per ton and fifty per cent. lead. There is lots of ore in sight in all parts of the mine and shipments will con tinue right along for the season. The Isabella, owned by James A. McFadden, continues to produce and ship ores by Pardun's pack train to ! of ers. Ketchum. The ore averages 100 ounces silver per ton with very little lead. Mac is quite enthusiastic over constantly improving developments. The Silver Star is now being worked systematically by an augmented force, and development work prosecuted in all directions. An upraise is being made from the lower tunnel to the surface on the vein, a distance of 400 feet, and altogether in ore of good quality. In fact all the work being prosecuted on the different parts of the mine is in ore. No mine in Idaho shows more ore in its entire length than the Silver Star of Little Smoky District. Many other mines in the district are being worked and preparations made to ship, and Little Smoky's record for 1885 will lead the Territory. C , _ I tOT FlgglnS of rl;uley t0 g0 1115 and 1 attend two men who were injured by the explosion of giant powder the evening before. From Mr. Brisbow we learn that Fatal Accident at Atlanta. in a Stan Brisbow came down from Atlanta Thursday moning, having been sent down by Superintendent Parker of the j Last Chance mine at that place for Doc j Having prepare d holes for shots in the j drift in whicll they wcre working Frank went oa top and took down flve 8ticks of giant powder . He carried four stick8 in tbe breast pocket of his jumper an d one in his hand. When he got back t0 where the otbcr two men were waiting for him he commenced put . thee men vere at work in the Last Chance mine namely: James Murphy, Charles Wilson and Frank — ——. ting the cup into the stick of powder he held in his hand. In pushing the ; cap into the powder he used his candle stick. The candle-stick was iron aud in its use an explosion was caused, five sticks of powder w-ent off, killing Frank instantly, his body being blown to pieces. James Murphy was veay badly lacerated and torn about the body and head and it was thought he would die in a few hours when our informant left. Charles Wilson was not so badly hurt but what he has a fair chance for recovery. All New Stage and Mail Route. M. M. Moore has put on a daily line of stages between Ketchum and the junc tion of this road with the Blaekfoot and Challis stage road, he having received the Government contract for carrying the United States mails over that route. In contemplation of getting the con tract, daily stages have been running some days, but the first mail sacks were, sent through by the new route Thurs day of this week. As yet, the postmaster has not received his commission, aud ns a consequence the mail sacks are way billed through to the old line. It will only be a few days until the new post office is opened and ail waymail distrib uted from that point. Heretofore mail matter from this section had to go over the Oregon Short Line to the Utah and Northern Rrilway and up that road to Blaekfoot, and. from Blaekfoot by stage to all points in Custer county. By the new route all mails come through Ketchum, and over two days are taken off the time required to send a letter from Ketchum to Challis. The Pacific Express is also carried over this line. Tlie Semi-Weekly Keystone. To-day we issue the Keystone os a Semi-Weekly. While the paper is some smuller thou before, the two issues eaeji week will make a much larger paper thuu the old weekly. We shall not pub lish a weekly, but will send the Semi Weekly in its place. In issuing a semi weekly tlie expense is much greater, and we trust our endeavors to give the news oftener will bo appreciated and our sub scription and advertising list will be increased sufficient to justify the extra expense necessitated by the change. i While the Keystone is supported liber ally by the greater portion of the busi 1 ! ! j ta columns, ness men of Ketchum, there are some who do not advertise their businesses in We hope to be able to induce all dealers to become advertising ' patrons of the Keystone in a short : time—"just to help the paper along," you know. The issue days will be on Wednesdays and Saturdays. : All kinds of sewiug done to order in ' tho little log cabin nearly opposite ! Union Church, Bathing Rates Reduced. Buy your bathing tickets.

It contains, besides a specific and unfailing antidote for miasmatic poison, other remedial agents which unite to expel the poisonous humors, purify the system, and leave it in a healthy and reinvigor«ted condition.
