They were brave men who emitted the Declaration of Independence, be cause every word in it constituted trea son against a great and powerful mon archy. Wise men, too, were they, in that they might interpret the genius of the age and the spirit of tho coming generations. They dared an ignomini ous death, and in the act set the foun dations of the republic bo firmly that the gates of hell have not been able to prevail against it. There was nothing new in the as sumption that men were created equal, but there was something sublime in the prophecy of eouality before the law and in tho power of men to gov ern themselves by statutes of their own enactment. Tho ancient republics made no such promises, and the doc trine was a new one to the world. This immortal document was a bar to the forming of caste or the recognition of privileged classes when the time came for adopting a constitution. The declaration declares as plainly as words may declare anything that the repub lic then announoed should be a "gov ernment of the people, for the people, by the people." IIow much these fathers of the na tion foresaw might happen is not known. They could not fail to know that misdirected ambition and bound ing passion are always sources of danger; yet their faith in the strong common sense of the people was su preme. Prevision may have revealed to some of them, at least, tho dangers that threatened from opposing views and interests, yet calmly and confident ly they gave a nation to the world, giv ing no token of doubt or fear as to the results. The task of tho critic is always an easy one, because his determination of the merits of things follows the act, so that he can judgo by results. Be sides, it is easy enough for anyone to find fault. The framers of the declara tion were originators, designers and creators. Had they blundered they would but have evidenced their human ity. In that they made no mistake, as time has shown, and have afforded critics nothing about which to i;arp, they demonstrated the greatness of their spirits and all the merit a grate ful people has accorded to them. Such a document conveys the same lesson to each succeeding generation. It teaches the duty of sacredly guard ing the liberties of all the people, the avoidance of all measures that may be proposed for the elevation of one class beyond another, the crushing of sec tional differences, and tho perpetuation of the union as it was handed down from the fathers. The glory of the re public is, and should ever be, not only that it has survived dangers from with out and greater dangers from within, but also that it has emerged from each succeeding peril greater and moro glorious than before. Tho problem of self-government becomes more difficult as the number of people multiply, and safety lies in holding loyally to the teachings of the fathers, who learned in a most trying school of adversity. Experiments are by no means safe, es pecially when time has demonstrated the wisdom of what already is. Grate ful to the founders of American liberty, each patriot's heart, proud of the achievements of the nation and the right of citizenship, should seek to con form itself to the spirit of tho declara tion and to the constitution of which it was the precursor.

Ferguson Dodd. lie had just finished shaving himself and was brushing his handsome Iron gray whiskers when a loud report, like the discharge of a small cannon, made the windows of his room rattle, and so startled him that he gave a lurch and a snort like a frightened horse, knock ing his shaving mug off the dresser with a crash. The sound was followed by shrill screams and laughter as from a score of juvenile throats. Col. Dodd, with bulging eyes, strode to the open window and looked out. Then, with an exclamation that he would never have been guilty of using in polite society, he rushed to the door of his chamber and threw it open. "Jason! Jason I" he called, excitedly, his stentorian voice reverberating through the house like theoroar of a lion. "Oh, here you are," he fumed, as his colored man-servant, stumbling over himself in his haste, came pitching into the room. "Now, Jason, what In the name of all thai Is outrageous does this mean? You know that I came down here for peace and quiet to es cape the noise that is always enough to drive one crazy in the city on thfli Fourth of July and I am no sooner out of bed than I am greeted , with a! cannonading under my very window. "Who's responsible for this confounded uproar?" , ' "'Spec' it's dem chillun nex'do', suh.", "Children! Merciful heaven, I dldnt know there was a child within nre miles of this spot." " 'Deed dey is, suh; more'n a busheh Dey's over darin Mistah Vernon's yahd, shootin fiahcrackers an' carryin' on like a passel o' young goats in a bahn. Looks mons'ous like dey gwine keep it' up all day." CoL Ferguson Dodd threw up bis hands and appeared to be on the verge of an apoplectio fit. "And I came down here especially to escape this," he groaned. "I've jumped out of the f rying pan " Bang! The two men, turning their startled eyes toward the open window, saw a battered tin pail soar up into the air to a point higher than the house, and then drop to the ground amid an ear-splitting din of cheers and childish merriment. "Dey trot a lot er dem big cannon, crackers," explained Jason, "an' dey put 'em under de pail an' tech 'em off, an' Miff! de ole pail go er scootin' " I "But where do these children come from?" demanded the coloneL "You: 1 don't mean to tell me that the Vernon "it's dem chiilun vex do", sen." have such a family as that? 1 particu larly charged the ntri-nt not to let that house to anyone with children." "Dey aint got nary young'un de Vernons aint," declared Jason. "Then I suppose they think it smart to invite a regiment of other people's brats here to raise a deuce of a dis turbance on the Fourth of July. I wont have It! IH give 'em notice this very minute. Ill teach 'em to trample on my rights. Here, help me on with my coat, and bring me my hat and cane." "But de breakfas' bell ringin', suh." "Breakfast be blowedl" thundered the coloneL "I wont eat a bite till I've given those people notice to vacate that house. I'll show "em!" The next minute he was descending the stairs, clutching his cane as if he were sallying forth to give battle to a mad dog. Puffing and growling he left the house and strode toward the Ste in the high stone wal. that formed, a dividing line between his premises ffgssv j justifiable. . To avoid the distracting, nerve-shattering noises which young America believes to be essential to the S roper observance of Independence ay, he had slipped out of the city and taken refuge in his quiet country house, where he had expected to en joy a day of absolute . quiet. So rude an awakening from bo pleasant a dream would have tried the temper of a less irascible man than the colonel Since purchasing this delightful country place CoL Dodd had built upon ft a new house, better suited to his ideas of convenience and comfort than the original cottage. , The old house had not been destroyed, but he had been oareful to rent it to a "quiet couple without children," and to separate it from his own premises by a 8 tone wall- eight feet high. The Vernons had been in possession but a few weeks, and CoL Dodd had never met them, but he was now determined that they should not remain there an other month. Full of indignation he unlocked the gate in the wall and pushed it open. On the further aide was a flower gar den, and the fireat person he saw was a lady in a pink gown and an expansive garden hat betiding over a pansy bed about ten paces from the walL "Madam," said the colonel In a stern voice, as he walked toward her, "I really beg your pardon for this in trusion, l am not in the habit of mak ing calls before breakfast, but my peace and comfort hare been assailed and I have not the patience to defer a most emphatic protest. My object in owning a country house, irfadam, is to have a place to; which I can safely withdraw when desire absolute quiet, as I do to-day. Iam here now to es cape the infer ahem! the outrageous racket incident to the celebration of the Fourth of July in town. Have I escaped- M la there any peace for a Just then there was another terrific explosion, and another burst of wild huzzas from the happy young people, Who were hidden from view by the dense shrubbery. 'I was not aware, madam," contin ued the colonel, striving to speak calm ly', 'that you had any children." The lady had stood before him with a shocked and helpless air as he tatked, seemingly much embarrassed. She was a neatly formed, trim little body, with large dark eyes and a fresh - com plexion, although it was evident from the few scattered silver threads in her black hair that she had left her girl hood behind her. "I take : it for granted that you are Jdxs. Vernon," said Cot Dodd, abrupt ly, as the possibility that she might be some one else occurred to him for the first time. "No, sir, 1 am not. I" "Oh, then, I humbly beg your par don. I have made a mistake. Too bad that I should have annoyed you. I presume I will find Mrs. Vernon in the house?" He lifted his hat with a court ly bow and was about to move away. "But, sir' said the lady, hastily, "I am afraid that I am responsible for the children. Mrs. Vernon Is not to blame at all. I brought tbem all here myself." He stopped and for the first time looked squarely down into the woman's face. Her hat had fallen back and her eyes did not flinch before his gaze, but the rich blood beat into her cheeks and she looked positively beautiful. The colonel started. "Lord bless my soul!" he exclaimed, in sudden astonishment. "Is it possi ble that pardon me, but I have I nc t had the honor of meeting you before?" "I think you have, Mr. Dodd," she replied, composedly. "And you arc really Madge!" He checked himself as he was about to seize her hand, and straightened up BtiGly. "Well, truly, this is a great surprise," he added. "How in tho world did you happen to be here? Is is your husband with you?" "My husband!".

Then, mnh to hiseonfnsion. chej broke into a ripjple of laughter. "You are indeed a blunderer," she; said, "for I never had a husband. I am' still Madge Markham." Crack! crack! Bang! bang! Boom! This time there was a whole volley of explosives, and the shrieks of the youth ful rioters were more piercing than be fore. But Col. Dodd did not even hear the noise. With an expression of mingled wonderment and joy on his face he took Madge Markham 's hand in his, swallowing with difficulty a lump in his throat." "Madge, isit true?" he asked, huskily. "Did you, after all, refuse to marry that man?" " How could you think me base enough to do otherwise?"she demanded. "Ide-. tested him." "But I I was told-" "I know," she interrupted, her voice softening. "I learned long afterward how cruelly we were both deceived and; imposed upon by my designing uncle.- He disinherited me because I refused to marry the man of his choice, and I HUMBLY BEO YOXJB P AH DON.

If there was a wilder specimen of reckless, tough-hided humanity in the world than Bud Bradley, the residents of the sandy, sun-dried little western town of Lovelocks dldnt know it. Everybody knew Bad like a town pump, and they all declared they dldnt know any good of him; but this was said more in a good-natured spirit than from any 111 will they bore him,' for he was known to be, like most of his olass, full of run and generous to a fault. When Bud was in town the town gen erally knew it There was sure to be a cloud of dust sailing around in his wake. He was ever on the move, and when he moved the earth trembled that Is to a limited extent and it came to be a saying among the people of that region when any disturbance was afoot: "It's either a stampede of cattle or Bud Bradley's broke loose again." Some of the quietly disposed members of the lit tle community hoped the harum-scarum fellow would get a lesson some day that would tone him down' a trifle and give their nerves a rest. And he got it. It was on the glorious Fourth of July, and Bud was not only jolted nearly to a jelly, but he was mortified beyond measure, and all through his own in sane efforts to fittingly celebrate the anniversary of our national independ ence according to his preconceived no tion. Such a thing as a Fourth of July cele bration was never thought of in that part of the country; it was too far away from civilization. There were firearms and firewater enough, but fireworks were not to be had without sending abroad for them. The cow boys sometimes had what they termed a little "flareup," a sort of Bacchanalian revel with gun-play trimmings, but this kind of demonstration was too tame for Bud, and he made up his mind to introduce a change in the pro gramme, and some dayB beforehand he laid his plans and warned the boys to be on the watch, for there was going to be such a display in Lovelocks on the coming Fourth as would cause the American eagle to "flap his wings and crow 'Yankee Doodle.' " The Fourth of July came around and found Lovelocks as quiet, drowsy and dusty as on any other day of the year, and, with the exception of an occasion al knot of two or three cattlemen lounging about the doorways of the stores, there was nobody astir. Thus AXX FOB THJB TOCBTH OF JULY. the almost torrid day dragged through to its close, and the loungers began to wonder what had become of Bud and his promised exhibition. They lingered on until the lights began to glint here fcnd there in the windows, and lust as they had abandoned the hope of seeing "Bud's circus" they were brought up Standing by the rush of something down the main street, that to their startled senses resembled a six-tailed fiery comet with skyrocket attach ments on a rampage. It was only Bud. Yes, no mistake about that; and such a spectacle they never had witnessed. He was astride a wildly charging steer to whose long horns were tied a couple of tall stream ing flags and at whose tail hung a huge bunch of exploding firecrackers, while from end to end the frenzied creature was bedecked with streamers of red,, white and blue. Bud himself was a sight to behold. His face was streaked (a la redskin) with red, white and blue, a dozen small flags were stuck round his hatband and in each hand was a monster Soman caudle belching forth balls of variegated fire at every jump of the maddened animal he bestrode. Through the town the blazing appari tion streaked it, accompanied by the unearthly yells of its moving spirit and urged on by the fusillade of pistol shots and cries which its appearance had awakened. But, alas, there was chaos lurking In the gloaming. Into th open doorway of a neat little cottage at a turn in the road the jubilant Bud was cast headlong, and away to its na tive heath bolted his terrified steed. And the worst of all was that the chap fallen fellow was deposited in a tangled mass at the feet of the only girl in the world whose love he cared to win. Bud made his escape and was not seen . in town for several days, and when he did show up he sported a patch on his face and a limp, and when Inter rogated concerning his great Fourth of July celebration with great vehemence he ejaculated: "Oh, come off!" But he got the girl all right. They Bade bis Fourth a night ot Jos', With Bomaa aaodlas sad sky rockets. Which, vblla they dldBotbsna UmUt. Burred Urge holes la his fathafs pockets. Truth.

Time brings its' changes and we old fellows are prone to think the former things were better than those that now exist. One fact is evident, that as the years pass people get farther awav from the enthusiasm and abandon that .marked the celebration of the o re r-to-be-glorious Fourth of July. Whether the calm dignity, the commonplace picnics or seeming indifference of the present be as inspiring as the com memorations of other days let the reader determine when ho shall have perused what follows. Ah! how .fresh in memory is the Fourth jof July of fifty years ago in the Southland! What preparations were made weeks in advance by old and young, and how every one did talk of the possibilities and probabilities of the occasion. The programme usually be gan as early as the hour of ono in the morning, when every church bell, the city hall and the court house bells rang out clanging and clashing notes, awak ing everybody out of sleep. The com plete enjoyment of this bell-ringing to the participants, usually lads of twelve to eighteen, lay in finding entrance to usnERrso nr the foubth. the bell towers without the consent of the officials in charge of tho same. With the first notes of the many toned bells all of the boys of the town, and mar-y men with them, sallied forth fromth'"r several homes, to form in parties of from six to twelve, each per son armed with a flint-lock horse pistol, a musket of the revolution or a great bore shotgun. Loud and yet louder the firearms flashed, for, as enthusiasm grew the charges of powder became larger, until it would seem that the guns must surely burst. While the bells clanged and the sharp reports rang out in the darkness, childish voices thrilled with patriotic songs, that fired the hearts of the one or two yet living soldiers of the revolution in almost every southern as well as north ern town, and made them think afresh of Cowpens and Yorktown. So rang the bells and so fired the guns until sunbeams began to dance upon the church steeples, when urchins and adults betook themselves home to has tily swallow their breakfasts. Then followed firecrackers galore, everybody, men and women, joining in, the sport being continued through out the day and until midnight. The ceremonies, which began at eleven o'clock, Included a real oration all afire with patriotism, the reading of the Declaration and enlivening music and songs. The uniformed militia, as well as the ununif ormed, paraded the streets followed by an innumerable proces sion of admirers of all ages and both sexes. The negro slaves, queer trav esty upon light and knowledge, en tered into the spirit of the occasion just as heartily as though the Declaration included them in the birthright of equality. A ragamuffin parade was an inevita ble accompaniment of the day, follow ing close after the barbecuo dinner from which nobody was excluded and where everyone ate his filL This motley crew, made up of men in all manner of disguises, rode or drove all manner of Incongruous creatures and called into requisition every kind of rattle-trap, broken down conveyance. No mat so poof that he might not get drunk on the Fourth, whisky being served in the ladle and without a faucet, direct from the barrel. The night was ushered in by a great central bonfire fed by tar barrels, de serted outhouses, lumber and all man ner of combustibles. Everybody busily shot off fireworks and no one was un happy as long the blaze burned. Acci dents were plentiful, but no one minded tbem, and the events of tho day and evening afforded ample food for village gossip until the next Fourth came round. A rTZR THE FOURTH.
