The fifth annual excursion of the Mas sachusetts and Suburban Press associa tion left Long wharf, Boston harbor, on Sunday afternoon, June 14th, for Halifax. On the left lay our cruiser, San Francisco, coaling, while alongside, lying well down in the water, we could plainly see the ram Katahdln. On our right Fort Inde pendence, in charge of the mines in the harbor, Fort Warren and Boston Light engrossed our attention. It was a perfect day, and the hundred and nine comprising the party were ex tremely happy, and seemed to quite ab sorb the beauties of the surroundings. The well-appointed, commodious boat, "Prince Edward," of the Dominion At lantic line, fairly rung with mirth, and many wished we were going across. How unstable Is the mind of man ! Ere Marblehead Neck had been passed a mys terious quiet was in evidence. There was more room on deck, we met our friends less frequent, some swallowed nervously, and their accustomed smile seemed la bored. Lemons and pepsin gum were popular, and many believed that they really ought to arrange their staterooms before dark. Others departed with little excuse, and a few unwisely deferred their going. I went too, but it is over now, though I never can explain the attachment that so suddenly sprang up between that state room and myself. Morning dawned, just like other beau tiful June mornings, but somehow my heart was not in it. When the cry came, Close the port holes while we wash down the deck," there was much doubt In our minds as to our ability. Nova Scotia was sighted about six a. m., and most or. the tourists were on uecK, as we sailed along very near the shore for some distance before reaching the wharf at Yarmouth. After our baggage was inspected, we were served with a de licious break fa6t at the Grand, a hand some ana up-to-aate notei. it was a source of great annoyance to us that we felt so oblivious to the good things be fore us. Yarmouth is a delightfully interesting city, with its many attractive drives, fine buildings, large stores and pretty haw thorn hedges. The train for Annapolis was taken about nine a. m. The scenery varies much from that of New England, the woodlands being covered with fir trees, many of which were hanging heavily with gray moss, not unlike that of the south. Many maples appeared, but as a stunted growth. Great expanse of water, quaiut villages, old landmarks and small brooks appeared here and there. A short stop was made at Digby, on the Annapolis Basin. This town is the Bar Harbor of Nova Scotia, and Is a very attractive spot, famous for its lovely drives. Here a stretch of the Bay of Fundy can be seen through Digby Cut. Fishermen are always enthusiastic over the deep sea fishing at Digby. At noon we arrived at Annapolis, for merly Port Royal, which is a seaport at tho mouth of the Annapolis river. This is one of the oldest settlements in North America, founded by the French in 1604, and an interesting town of 2800 inhabi tants. Here we were met at the station and taken to the hotels for lunch, some of the party stopping at the Queen and others at the Clifton Houses. Our party was pleasantly entertained at the latter, a cosy, homelike hostelry in the center of the town. Immediately after lunch the townspeo ple furnished conveyances to take the en tire party sight-seeing. Old Fort Ann, with its magazines, military prison, bar racks erected by the Duke of Kent, in good condition after many sieges, was in deed well worth a visit. The barracks are now tenement houses, and the court serves as a playground lor tne village children. A game of cricket was in prog ress while we were there. The drives about Annapolis are delight ful, and the attention of visitors is called to the old French burying ground, Victo ria beach, Young's Cove, where glimpses of the Bay of Fundy, with its rise of tide from 30 to 40 feet may be had. A special train for Halifax awaited us at the station, and the only stop made was at Grand Pre, made famous by Long. fellow in his poem "Evangeline," based on the Acadian exile. This Is in truth a great meadow, as the name implies, and the thrifty farms are all that they are pictured. The village Is beautifully sit uated on the Menas Basin, and has a pop ulation of 2,000. The French willows 6lde of tne 8tatlorit with Mount Blomidon in the distance. On the south lies the village proper, though farms are scat tered ail through the valley. The site of the shop of Basil, the blacksmith, was shown us, and many snap shots were soon with the party on its way to Halifax. This famous old city was reached at 8.30 Monday evening, where special street cars took the excursionists to the Halifax and Queen hotels, which were elegant in appointment and cuisine. Weeks should have been spent here instead of a few days, and then there would be much left .BBBBBaw a. soothing, And healing It is peculiarly delightful for keeping the skin soft, white,. and smooth You pay for Ivorine; we give yOU the SOap. , t , TIm J.B.WUlixmsCoGlatoabui7,a. unseen. There Is a strange interming ling of the old and the new, unknown to our comparatively new cities. Many of the buildings are beauties In architecture and massiveness, among which are the Provincial Building, Government House and the new armory. The Public Gardens were literally filled with flowers, the season there being four weeks later than ours. Lilacs were real trees, yellow locusts, hawthorn, horse chestnuts, bridal wreaths, and all the flowering shrubs and plants, natives of New England, were luxuriant and abund ant. Artificial lakes, bridges and lodges added much to the beautiful park. Fort George on Citadel hill, next to the strongest fortress in North Ameilca, stands jDAJkhlU overlooking the harbor, andwas bedecked in holiday attire be cause of Halifax's 149th birthday.- The visitors were taken around the earth works Inside the moat, and through the courts, and many of the "Yankee cous ins" will have hat pins made of the Eng. lish army buttons as mementos of that day. All were Invited by the Halifax Tour ists' and Press associations to a sail on the harbor, and were royally entertained with a three and a-half hours' sail and light refreshments on the tug Whitney. This Is a magnificent sheet of water, ca pable of sheltering the whole English navy at once. Two Spanish merchant vessels have been hiding in the harbor for six weeks and saluted us as we passed them, though we were flying the stars and stripes. A treat was in store for us, for we soon sighted the English flagship, Renown, and pulling up alongside, were assisted on board by the gallant seamen, while the ship's band played "The Star Span gled Banner." This ship carries four 10 inch, ten 6-inch, and thirty light or quick firing guns. A new torpedo net had Just been received from England, and was be ing adjusted to the ship. At the time of our visit there were 999 men on board. Dinner was nearly ready and looked very appetizing. The hospital was an attract ive apartment, with its swing cots and spotless bedding. It was recreation time for some, who enjoyed themselves watch ing the regatta and playing checkers, the remainder were busy cooking, tailoring, mending, winding tobacco, polishing re galia, and attending to their various du ties. We were uBhered off the ship to the strains ' of a popular two-step, and proceeded on our sail. The finest dry dock In America, where our "Jndianna" has been repaired, was at our left, and many fine homes dot the shores. The band stand on the estate of the Duke of Kent still stands on the shpresjotha Bedford- Baain, and la visi ble from the harber. The fortifications are numerous, there being one on George's Island known as Fort Chailotte, and Ives Point battery and Fort McNab on McNab's Island. York Redout is a modern fortification at tho entrance of the harbor. After a delightful sail, amid cheers for the Tourists' association and Halifax Press association, we landed at Corbett's wharf. Many attended the concert In the evening at the public gardens. We left Halifax early Wednesday morn ing, passing through the town of Wind sor, which was nearly wiped out by a fearful fire last winter, but is fast being rebuilt. This town mines plaster stone In large quantities, and many car loads were ready for shipment as we passed through. We reached Kentville before noon which Is an attractive town, thickly pop ulated with courteous, hospitable people, who did everything in their power to make our stay here enjoyable. We were all cordially entertained at the hotels and two or three private families. Directly after dinner carriages and barges, kindly loaned by the citizens, conveyed the party to Look Off Moun tain, a distance of twelve miles. This is a delightful drive through a very fertile country, where thrift and prosperity seemed to reign. The dikes have made it possible to cultivate many rich mead ows, from which large crops are taken. The apple orchards are numerous, and a Dig yield Is expected tnis year. '1 bis is a staple export for this locality. One seldom, If ever, meets a more ex tended and magnificent view than that of Mount Look Off. On a clear day, and such we had, one may behold five coun ties, including the peaceful valley of Grand Pre. while a broad expanse of the Minas Basin, surrounded by lofty moun tains, one of which is Blomidon, is ever before you. From the tower the Bay of Funday is visible on the north, making altogether a panorama never to be for gotten. we reached home with a hearty appe tite, which was quickly appeased by the good things provided us by Mrs. C. A, Masters, with whom It was our good for tune to stop. Should any one going to Kentville desire good board in a pleasant family, this quiet home would "be' an ideal stopping place. The band concert, and a public meeting of the tourists, with a musical and speech. es at Hotel Arberdeen, was the evening's entertainment. WASHING POWDER A wonderful cleanser for household work. Wfieri you Wash the Baby use the cake of White Glycerine Toilet Soap found In each pack' age of Irorlne. The fame ot WU hams Shavinsr Soaps guarantees Toilet Soap pure, delicate, An unexpected pleasure on Thursday morning was a general invitation for the excursionists to visit the private flower garden of Mr. DeWolf. This garden Is a thing of beauty, containing nearly every thing adapted to that climate. The grounds were terraced, with a small wooded hill at the rear, In which were summer houses, walks and seats. Among these trees were growing ferns, orchids and rare specimens. The citizens of Kentville gathered at the station to see us off, and with cheers and best wishes we bade farewell. At Middleton a large delegation wel comed us, and lunch was served in the station restaurant. Yarmouth was reached at 3.30, and we sailed for Boston at once. An elaborate dinner was served on the steamer, after which we all went on deck to watch the sun set, a magnificent sight. The water was literally vivid red as far as the eye could reach. We landed In Boston Fri day morning about 10.30, where It was our pleasure to attend Keith's theatre that night. The house surpasses any thing In this country in grandeur, with its beautiful courts, parlors, toilet rooms, elegant pictures, and immaculate engine rooms. The lighting, ventilating and ooling systems seem perfect. A visit to Boston will not be complete without a visit to Keith's. The following resolutions were passed at the meeting at Kentville : The members of the MaaaanhusAtt.a and Rnu. urban Press Association, recalling with exceed ing kicobiuv urn Bmuucauon me aeiiimtruiiy hospitable manner In which they have been re ceived by the people of Nova Scotia, remember In? with an appreciation which cannot readily find an expression in words that the latch strings of Nova Scotlan homes have ever been out to the newspaper men of New Kngland, and feeling deeDlv erateful for this t.ririra wnaiatii evidence that though far from home we are vet among friends in whose fidelity we can with safety confide and whose welcome to us Is in deed from the heart, have Resolved That our heartfelt thanks be given to our Dominion friends for the delightful ways In which their hospitality has manifested itself and which have conduced to make our sojourn In Evangeline Land a continued round of pleas ure. Resolved that so long as memory lives we shall cherish with delight the remembrance of our cordial reception In this beautiful land, which though of another government Is so closely allied with us In blood, aspirations and sympathy.

THIRTY YEARS AGO. Items of local Interest taken from the columns of The Press, thirty years ago. July lO, 1868. Strawberries have been plenty the past ten days at twenty cents per box, but are now past their prime. A large swarm of bees arrived at Staf ford Springs on Saturday, the 4th, having started out from some locality to make a declaration of their Independence of the parent hive, and settled low down In the chimney of the dwelling-house of Mrs. E. Spellman. They were soon driven from their hiding place by a gentle smoke fire, a part passing out of the chimney and tbe remainder through a room of the house, filling It quite full. They lodged in the top of a tree in the door-yard, and were secured in good condition by J. M. Tappan and W. N. Thompson, an old bee hunter. It was supposed at first from the quantity that there were two swarms. Coventry. Rev.

Lessons of Patriotism. Foreigners say of us that we are al ways in a hurry, and it is true tnat we have not yet learned the philosophy of leisure. Indeed, during the long days in a calendar year the people of tbo United States seem consumed by the passion of effort. Absorbed by diverse interests, spirited conflicts and the clash of com petition, we almost cease at times to feel at all the straining of the chord of general American sympathy. But upon the nation's birthday the people, like a family, mingle commem oration with congratulation. The old lessons of patriotism taught us through all the years crowd in upon us, and in every heart, where there is enough no bilityof character to render possible tbe impulse of gratitude the American spirit, with its old strength, stirs the better natnre, till we lose the care of business in pride of country and forget elf in the thought of a flag. Chicago Inter Ocean. . Lord Chatham's Words. Well might Lord Chatham proclaim from his place in the parliament of Great Britain. "History, my lords, has been my favorite study, and in the cele brated writings of antiquity I have of ten admired the patriotism of Greece and Rome, but I must declare and avow that in the master states of the world I do not know tbe people, nor the senate. who in such a complication of difficult circumstances can stand in preference to tbe deleKatea of America assembled in general congress at Philadelphia." Klephanta. There are annually killed in Africa a minimum of 65,000 elephants, yielding the production of a quantity of. raw ivory the selling price of which is 14,250,000. Number 14. A GREAT ANNIVERSARY. fourth of J illy Mark the Rebirth of Freedom In the World. Tbe Fourth of July ia unique among anniversaries not only because it com memorates the modern rebirth of free dom after its death in the middle ages, but because it holds a place in history as tbe first modern anniversary data set apart for commemoration by all - the people of a nation. The men who made tbe day historic al felt instinctively the significance of their work and that its influence was not bounded by ocean lines. They felt that the day was to commemorate the liberation not only of a people, but in large measure of the race. They believ ed that it was to be first among many days to oome illumined with tbe light of tbe brighter pages of human history. At the first anniversary of the date. held in Philadelphia, and in which the moving figures were ' the men who had signed the Declaration of Independence, this idea was clearly expressed. They had builded not only for a country, but for the world, and not only for a gener ation, but for all time. They had given the national anniversary a place in hu man annals, they thought and said. The oentury which has followed has justified the opinion. In less than half a generation France had made the eighteenth Brumaire im mortal as the date of the fall of the Bastille. Tbe influence of tbe Fourth of July has been worldwide. As the people have come more into government in ev ery land they have widened the soope of national aspirations. England now has her jubilees and days commemora tive of Trafalgar and Waterloo, as well as the lugubrious anniversary of Guy Fawkes. Sedan day, every year, sets Germany aflame with patriotic ardor for the fatherland. Italy has her days sacred to the memories of its successive steps in tbe achievement of Italian unity. Lowell sang of Lincoln as a "new birth of our new soil." A newer birth of our newer soil is a galaxy of glorious days added to the history of many lands. St. Louis Post-Dispatch. AMERICAN PATRIOTISM. What la the Dominating Spirit of Fourth of July Observances? Is the 6pirit of American patriotism still alive? Is love of liberty and conn- try as strongly implanted in the breasts of the people today aa it was in 1776 and 1812? Is the Fourth of July oele bration of today commemorative of the birth of independence or is it a mean ineless saturnalia of noise and riotous indulgence? These are questions wnlcn are now uppermost in the minds of thinking men. Conditions whioh to some seem impregnated with danger to republican institutions have led to the fear that patriotism ie fast becoming a minor quantity in the make up of the average American citizen. The pnblio heart, it is asserted, no longer thrills with right eous indignation at events which in the past would have moved tbe entire pop ulace to expressions of emphatic remon strance. Orators cannot move their au ditors to frenzy by spellbinding flights of impassioned eloquence. Matters which 50 or even 80 years ago would have called for warlike preparation are now allowed to pass almost unnoticed. Fourth of July observation has taken new form. Picnics and athletio compe titions have supplanted patriotic exer cises to a large degree. There is as much noise as ever, but it is noise without enthusiasm. The old time stentorian spout er who was wont to twist the lion's tail and send the American eagle soar ing on glorious missions is in ignoble retirement. And why? Men of influence say these .things do not indicate a decay of patriotism, but merely that people are wiser, calmer and more rational with advancing years. Deliberation now takes the place of hasty, ill considered judgment, and the country is better for it. Others of equal force and influence assert that patriot ism is in its decadence and tbe fact is portentous of evil. America, this latter class insists, is filling up too fast with an untutored foreign element, which the native population cannot properly assimilate. Chicago Tribune. Japan's Holidays. For a thousand years the people in the country of peaceful shores have been famous for celebrations. They have al ways had rather an overplus of holi days, domestic, religious and local, but the truly national patriotic festivals are as modern as tbe flags that are flown and the salutes that are fired in their honor." Long centuries of feudal ism divided both the nation and the popular allegiance. Now all most gladly celebrate their regained nationality mightily helped as this has been by tbe pressure and ponnding of foreign na tions eager for trade and covetous of land. 1 -iueptudeu 4 Are your cheeks hollow and your lips white?
