To be sure, it happens to be Independence day for the United States, and more than a century and a quarter of observances of that great event have brought it about that the signing of the charter of American liberties in the old state house in Philadelphia on that date overshadows all else when the holiday arrives. But there are other an niversaries which fall on the fourth day of the seventh month, some of them quite as much by chance as did the signing of the Declaration itself, some of them because it was the Fourth of July, but all of them of suf ficient importance to hold their places in the records of history or science or literature, as the case may be. It is a list of 2S items, and here in America at least, it will be best to be gin with 1777 The Declaration of Indepen dence signed by the Continental con gress, in session in Philadelphia. Then may be followed in order four events so closely allied with this same great document itself, or with its spirit, to be fairly corollaries to it 178S Federal procession in Phila delphia to celebrate the ratification of the constitution of the United States. 1826 The deaths of Thomas .lei ferson. author of the Declaration of Independence, and John Adams, one of its signers, on the o'Uh anniversary of its birth. 1831 The death of James Monroe, whose "doctrine' enunciated 8 years previously, has becore one of the fun damental principles of American gov ernment.

Near the Manufacturers hotel his buggy collided with another, precipitating him to the street. Friends picked him up In an unconscious condition and he was taken inside the hostelry, where Dr. Arp found that he hail broken three ribs and sustained other serious bruises. He was taken to tin hospital. It seems as though after supper he decided to go buggy riding, so he secured a horse and carriage from a down town livery. This outfit, however, was not swift enough for Mr. Jacobs, so he substituted it with an outfit from another livery. This horse proved too much. The People's Savings Bank & Trust company has awarded its prizes offer ed for the best essays on savings pro duced by the pupils in our public schools.

The reception committee appointed to meet the student chorus from Lund, Sweden, will meet at the Manufactur ers hotel about 2 o'clock in the after noon on July 8 and will go in a body to the depot and escort the visitors to the hotel. After this all will go to Augustana college, where a banquet will be given in honor of the students, to which the ladies have been invited. DOVECOTS IN SCOTLAND. According- to LW, Xo One May tin I id More Than One. It is not universally known that the right of erecting a dovecot was a priv ilege only to le enjoyed in England by the lords of the manor, and the law was vigorously enforced on this point. But In Scotland, according to a statute still held in observance, nobody has a right to build a cot In either town or country unless he is the owner of land yielding about 9'i0 imperial bushels of produce per annum, and this property must le situated within at least two miles of the dovecot or pigeon house. A further enactment also states that on the above named conditions only one cot shall be built. A distinguished authority on hus bandry estimated that in 1628 there were 26.000 dovecots in England and that, allowing 50O pairs to each house, the damage wrought by the birds in devouring corn would work out at no less than 13,000.000 bushels that Is, on allowance of four bushels yearly to each pair. Any one who destroyed a cot was guilty of theft and Is so held at the present time In Scotland tb net w.is passed in ir70. while a third offense of dovecot breaking was capi tally punishable. Perfect specimen of these cots are becoming scarcer e ery year. Hour Glass. Night Was Her Terror. "I would cough nearly all night long," writes Mrs. Charles Applegate. of Alexandria. Ind .
