Carey. r Birthday of Old Glory A ) Tha resolution for tha adoption of tho Amarican I lag was passed by congraaa, Jua 14, 1777. Tha ship "Columbia" (1787-1790) waa tha firat vessel to carry tha Amarican flag around tha world. Tha firat official celabration of Flag day waa hald in tha post offica department at Washington in 1908. Sinca 1866 all flags used by tha government have been Araarican-mada. Previous to that lima tha flags wara mada of English bunting. Tha first American flag displayed in a British port was on tha hip "Bedford" of Massachusetts, which arrived in the Downs, Feb ruary 3, 1783. Tha first Amarican flag was made by patriotic ladies in Phila delphia. It waa a small affair, but represented a heavy cost, because the bunting came from England, and in the days of '77 things British came high. Flag day waa originated in 1889 by Professor George Bolch of New York, who introduced into his kindergarten the practice of hold ing special exercises in celebration of the adoption of tha American flag by congress, June 14, 1777. Each battleship of the United Statea navy is entitled to 250 flaga . every three years, though many are renewed ofter.tr than this. The coal of the flags for each ship exceeds $3,000 no small item in Uncle Sam's bill for .equipments. - Tha thirty-by-forty-foot flag which was hoisted over Fort Mc Henry and inspired Francis Scott Kay to write "The Star Spangled Banner" was made by Mrs. John Pickersgill of Baltimore whan tha British were about to begin thair attack on that city. The Fifth street grammar school of New Bedford, Mass., claims to have been the first school in the country to raise the United States flag and to make the use of it a permanent feature of public school administration. Thia school unfurled the flag with appropriate public exercises on May 11, 1861, only 27 days after the surrender of Fort Sumter to tho Confederates. . The firat American flag was flown by John Paul Jones. By error this flag had but 12 stars, but the man whom the British dubbed "pirate, rebel, robber," proudly informed congress that the emblem at the peak of hi warship, the "Ranger," waa received with the most marked courtesies by the French, whose formal recognition of the new flag constituted the French acknowledgment of the new republic. It was not until September 3, 1777, that the action of congress in adopting tha Amarican flag waa made public through the press, though word of the new law had reached the American troops at Fort Schuyler and a drummer boy had made a flag after the prescribed 'pattern. For the white he took two old ammunition shirts, for tha bue he used an old army coat, and for tha red he requisitioned on the wife of a private for har one red flannel petticoat.

"I found a cent in the subway this morning,'" said the Manicure Lady, "and I guess I'm going to be lucky this summer." "I hope so," said the Head Barber. "I wish you had round a hundred-case note." "That's awful sweet of you, George," said the Manicure Lady, "and that's one of the finest reasons for loving life, to know that your friends don't wish no bad luck on you. Goodness knows, George, it's a good thing they don't, with all the bad luck lying around so close to us we. have hard work dodging it. I'm going to keep that cent for a lucky piece." "I done that for a week once w'th a cent." said the Head Barber, "and everything broke wrong the whole week. My. wife got neuralgia that week, and I twisted my ankle, and a lot of other things seemed to come off all at once. I fired the cent in the Hudson, and I guess it's there yet." VI think it s smtul to throw money in 'a river," said the Manicure Lady. "Thank goodness, I don't know how to throw. But, anyhow, George, speaking about luck, maybe, after all, life is just what you make it. Life is real and the grave ain t its goal. "As them old poets used to say, Why should the spirits of mortals be loud? We ought to. do something every day to make other folks happy. Sometimes I feel so happy that I wish somebody else could have part of that happiness. Maybe that's why I keep all the time talking." "Maybe," said the Head Barber. "There must be some reason. I wish I had a dollar for every word you ever spieled in this grand old barber shop." "But it ain't done you no real good, all mv talk." said the Manicure Lady. "You get no new ideas, George. Shav ing gents and betting on horses and talking base ball that's you today, tomorrow and all the time." "There's worse things to be think ing about," said the Head Barber. "I always liked them outdoor sports." "Outdoor sports is all right," said the Manicure Lady, "which is more than I can say for some of the indoor snorts that makes bets on them. But anvhow. SDeakins; about that cent I found, I ought to draw a little good luck if I don t lose it. There is a gent going to call on me up home tonight, and they say he comes from a awful fine familv. rle has been kind ot ninting aDout marrying and settling down, and any thing he has got to y on that sub ject will be listened to by me very attentive like. Believe me, George, I won't interrupt him." "I'd like to see you marry happy," said the Head Barber, "but it would be awful lonesome around here wtihout you. I wouldn't have nobody except my customers to talk to. I'd be lonesome." "That would be tough, George," said the Ll -'-'ire Lady, "but I won't be think. s.bout that if I get a chance to listen to a proposal. I'll be thinking about the quickest way to say yes." "Marriage is a lottery," said the Head Barber. "You take a chance." "When the chance comes, you do," said the Manicure Lady, "and when my chance comes, George, I shall be brave." Miller Park, school and have con ceived such a high esteem for their teachers that as a token of their re spect they intend to present the silver loving cup, which is now in their pos session as base ball champions among the grade school boys of the city, to the one who is leaving, Miss Hunt'.
