A man named Stacy, tho owner of a splendid drinking-saloon, in Now Xvi tigac.6; tbo pledge JWefyioil The Fourtli of July at Aurora Springs- The day before the Fourth the people began to come in by wagon, hack and buggy load-i. Tho restaur ant men and women were all busily engaged in fitting up their stand and preparing refreshments for the thou sands of thirsty people expected the next day. There were L'O stands of refreshments with a number of other amusements. Harry Hill's great ex hibition of Persian and Arabian Hying pegasusez was one of tho great at tractions. The Fourth opened out with a beautiful morn, a lovely northeast breeze refreshed tho air and gave new life and energy to all on the ground and those on their way to the Springs, at dawn the cannon boomed thirteen times. By 12 o'clock there were at least 3,000 people on the ground. The park company had made all needful regulations to carry out the program by appointing all needful committeemen and ofilccrs to make the Fourth a grand success at the Springs. Mayor Hunter and Dr. D. H. Allen were grand marshals, with 1'. T, Bowman, assistant. The different lodges of I. O. O. F, in Central Missouri were in attend ance, and after their march, were ad dressed by the Rev. Ed. Hawkins and S. N. Mussel. Capt. Holmes, with his drill corps of young ladies of Jefferson City was a new and grand feature in tho program and much honor and credit is due Capt. Holmes and the 10 beautiful, accomplished young ladies of Jeff City. The Capt. gave two exhibitions during tho day to the entire satisfaction of the large company assembled to witness it. Uncle Abe Fulkerson being ap pointed master of ceremonies, first introduced Rey. Howard Jackson, a minister of the gospel for 5 1 years, who is 82 years old, to ask the bles sings of the All Wise I'rovidencc, after which the Declaration of Inde pendence was read by Master Ralph Harvey, a seven-year-old youth, son of Robert S. Harvey of Aurora Springs, who, after tho reading, pre sented Master Ralph with a gold med al as a memento of the youngest boy in the United States who over read tho Declaration of Independence in public on the celebration of the 1th. After the reading of tho Declara tion of Independence, Hons. James E Hazel of California, and E. O. Swaloin of Tuscumbia, entertained the audience an hour in their usual good style. Capt. Harvey has a company of 1(! boys who drill like j-oting soldiers, and are all well skilled in music, with their drum, fife, harp, tambour con and bones. Tho littlo fellows make quite a racket and are stimula ting other youths to exert themselves to compete for supremacy. Thomas Cook, with his silver band gavo tho largo concourse of people tho best of music throughout tho day. Tho town board and park company deserve the greatest amount of praise for tho many needed Improvements made preparatory to the Fourth. Not withstanding the drought and general scarcity of water in the country, the Aurora Springs afforded a bountiful supply of tho best of water and could havo supplied 100,000 people with tho aqua purl With the energy and foresight of tho present town board tho proba bility is that many other ptcnio and public meetings will take place this summer nnd fall. The Springs, as now arranged, is ono of the most pleasant points in Central Missotui for public meetings and picnics. louts truly, WITH THE SPIRIT OF '7G Sons of Revolutionary Sol tilers Have Banded Them selves Together- Norwood Institute was thrown open last evening for tho use of the Wash ington brancli of tho society of the Sons of the Revolution by Professor and Mrs. Cabell. Two preliminary meetings of the society had been bold, but the session of last night was regarded as the first regular meeting, those coming in at that lime being accepted as charter members. Thcro are now 120 names on the roll, and thirty-five applications have yet to bo considered. With those counted, the membership of this branch will rate as third in tho IiH of societies throughout the country. As the members and invited guests arrived twy were shown into the large drawing-room, where they were received by Mrs. and Miss Cabell and tho reception committee, com. posed of Gen. Brcckenridge, Doctor Toner, and Gen. II. V. Boynlon. It lacked a few minutes of 0 o'clock when Senator Sherman, standing on the platform at the south bay-win dow, as the presiding olllccr called the meeting to order, there being present upwards of sixty persons, of whom twenty were ladies. Ho said that he approved of any movement that would perpetuate the memory of heroes of the revolutionary war, and lailcd with pleasure the organization composed of men and women of the descendants of revolutionary sires. The women might not have done any of the fishtina, but thev took an equally important part m looking after the homos that the men might absent themselves to in their country's cause. Prof. G. Brown Goode, the sec retary, explained the objects of the society. He outlined the purposes of the association in a short speech. lie said that the society had existed fourteen years, and was started in California July 1, 1870, by fifty de scendants, who took part in a dem onstration at that time, meeting later and forming the society. Among those present were : Sen ator Sherman, Gcu. M. J, Wright and wife, Col. T. A. Reeve, Dr. J. N. Toner, Pfof. J. W. Cabell, Mis. and Miss Cabell, Gen. Geo. B. Hibbard, Prof. J. B. Goode. Gen. J.
