The Fourth- of July Is
a World-wide Holiday
The Significance o! the Fire-Cracker Is To-Day
Known to Many Different Peoples
THE boom of the cracker, the
roar of the gun, the whir of
the rocket that proclaims
American freedom on the nation's na
tal day is, at the beginning of this
twentieth century, heard all around
the world. The celebration of the na
tion's birth never ceases so long as the
day remains upon the calendar of the
year, and the significance of the
Fourth of July is known to many peo
ple in lands lying far below the equa
tor to the icebergs of the frozen
north. Let us hope that before long
the intrepid explorers now on their
way to Arctic seas will nail "Old Glory"
to the north pole and plant the can
non cracker at the very axis of "Old
Mother World" before they return.
It has been the boast of our English
cousins that "the sun never sets on
the union jack." The same is true to
day of Old Glory, and where the flag
flies there is found also the Fourth
When the patriotic American states
men affixed their signatures to the
historic document that proclaimed
American freedom the nation which
they represented was almost small
enough for the welcome news as pro
claimed by the iron tongue of the old
liberty bell at Philadelphia to pene
trate to every point. The 13 little
colonies stretched along the Atlantic
coast from K"evv Hampshire on the
north to Georgia on the south. To the
west was an almost impenetrated
wilderness in which lurked the sav
age red men.
A move to the south was made ia
1820 when Spain ceded Florida to the
United States, and another larg
stretch of territory was brought un
der the protecting folds f Old Glory.
Later the Lone Star state knocked at
the door of the union asking for ad-
mission to the sisterhood of states,
and the close of the Mexican war saw
Independence day celebrated from th
Atlantic to the Paoiflo.
Through the influence of Secretary
Seward Alaska was admitted to our
territory in 1867, and the Eskimos
of the frozen north began to learn th
meaning of the boom of the cannot
cracker when the days were longest.
Ever since the old liberty bell tolled

FREEOOM'8 FIRECRACKERS ARE HEARD ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
The end of the seven years' struggle
for independence brought with it a
desire to grow, and then began the
national expansion that has carried
the Fourth of July all around the
world, and made its significance known
to many people speaking many lan
Men who had served the struggling
provisional government of the col
onies in the ranks of the patriotic army
returned to their homes only to find
them burned and destroyed either by
the British or their faithful allies the
Indians. With the same courage they
had shown upon the field of battle
they moved westward into the un
known wilderness to begin life anew.
By the time Gen. Washington had been
chosen president for a second term
western Pennsylvania was figuring in
the nation's history and Independence
day was being celebrated along the
Gradually the venturesome settlers
worked their way still further west
ward. Ohio was invaded and crossed,
and before the patriotic Washington
had closed his public career and re
tired to private life at Mount Ver
non Tennessee was celebrating the
nation's natal day as a state in the
federal union. For years after the
admission of Tennessee as a stato the
American ship Columbia carried old
glory on its first trip around the
world, and with it went the story of
the Declaration of Independence.
Sailors on that good Boston schooner
told the story to the natives of the
isles of the far Pacific, and inspired in
the downtrodden colonies of Europe
in all parts of the world a hope of sim
But more than 2,000 miles of un
known territory still lay to the west
ward of even the farthest advanced
of the American outposts. In both
the north and south the settler, backed
by the soldier and his own heorism,
were rapidly advancing the line of
civilization. Hardly had the nine
teenth century opened before the Mis
sissippi river had been reached, to
cross which meant to enter French
territory. It seemed for a time that
the expansion must stop there, and
the meaning of the Fourth of July
be unknown on its western shore.
But the young nation was anxious to
expand, and France was willing to

Odd Predicament Which Befell a
Household Through a Serv
Convivial servants are anything but
treasures, as one housekeeper found
to her sorrow the other day, relates
the Baltimore News. This housekeep
er has a large family for which to
care, and so the news brought her
by a policeman at two o'clock one
morning recently that her trusted
colored henchman had been arrested
for fighting and was now languishing

It didn't make so much difference

said, but it dJL make a difference that
he had the keys of the buffet and of
the refrigerator in his pocket, and
that there would not be anything like
knives and forks enough to go around
at breakfast, nor any butter or cream
At seven a. m. a member of the fam
ily went to the station house to seo
what could be done for the iniquitous
Abraham, and in the meanwhile those
of the household who were obliged
to breakfast early took turns at using
the two knives and three vforks that
were all of the table equipment not
It was a real picnic breakfast,
"Please lend me your knife" being the
remark oftenest heard, except certaiD
expletives, but it wasn't voted a sue

appeared with his keys, purified by a
good-sized fine, and opened the aoora

BOTH MADE MISTAKES.
Tet in This Particular Case Tvrs
Wronci Didn't Blake On
Probably it never will be known just
how the story leaked out, but the man
ner of its escape doesn't matter so
much. The fact remains that one of
the most ceremonious and socially am
bitious matrons of the West side has
experienced a shock from which she
is recovering but slowly, and her large
circle of acquaintances are laughing
over a joke of which the lady was a
victim. The consideration of the ma
tron's never-ending hunt after the so
cial, financial or other lions lends pro
portionate zest to the enjoyment of
her friends, relates the New York Her
ald. An elderly gentleman of the south
who has recently sprung into much
prominence was visiting the city for
the first time. With him was his wife,
an estimable lady of near his own age
and sharing in her kindly character
her husband's simplicity, outspoken
ness and lack of veneration for con
ventionalities. The man was undoubtedly a celeb
rity, but a celebrity in the rough.
When it is explained of him that on
the occasion of his preferment to a
high position which called for his pres
ence in Washington he counseled his
wife to pack the grip and suggested
that they start out to walk the dis
tance from their southern home to
the capital because of the distrust of
"keers," an idea of the man may be
However, that was many years ago,
and, anyway, maybe it wasn't so. If
t was so, it must be put down to the
eccentricity of genius, for the man is
rich enough to be entitled to the term
eccentric. At all events, this partic
ular West side matron wanted him
and his wife to dine en famille. After
ward, when they were better acquaint
ed, she would arrange a more formal
function, where she might exhibit her
gray lion and put him through his
A peculiarity of the lady is her in
sistence on disparaging her own ef
forts. No matter how elaborate have
been her preparations, she is invari
ably excuseful to the point of being
a bore when she presides. There are
apologies for this and apologies for
that, and all the time she is treating
her guests to glimpses of fairyland
prepared by the most expensive florist,
and banquets arranged by $10,000 ex
perts in that line. Yet she apologizes,
knowing all the time that she is sham
When the old gentleman and his
wife arrived they were hungry in the
extreme. They had been used to the
old-fashioned noon dinner, but had
waived this on the ocasion referred to
as having a tendency to "spoil their
appetite." They were ushered into the
drawing-room and beguiled with small
talk until the dinner hour.
Just before the announcement the
hostess began her apologies. She was
so sorry she hadn't something better
to offer them; she just knew they
would not consider her dinner satis
factory, and so on, ad nauseum. The
old man finally arose. He had listened
anxiously to the tale of table deficien
cies, and his hunger had rebelled at the
prospect of a poor meal. Visions of
empty plates and skimpy dishes
flashed before him.
"Madam," he said, reaching for his
hat, "you knew we were coming. Come
on, Sary, let's go back to the hotel
and eat a table doty dinner." And
While out in the candle-lit dining-
