FRIDAY, JULY 2,
In comic art thero Is no moro potent char
acter than tho familiar and extraordinary
figure ot our honored "Unclo Sam." Every
American ncknonlodfros kinship with him,
but tovr know how ho camo into existence
Even somo of tho artists who have depleted
him year nfter rear, In his different moods
and attitudes, know nothing of his origin.
AfUr making many Interrogatories In re
gard to lilm, and considerable rcsoarcli Into
his genealogy, I learned that nn English
carjenturist created him in derision, long
ago. The intent was to embody all tho igno
rance, egotism, crudones, pretention and
asscrtiveness of tho saucy young coun
try in the qunlnt llguro of tha
old Yankee. IJuc tuoro was a uignity
In the tall, angular, solf-satlsfled old
man which his creator neither meant nor
saw. Tho peoplo of tho new country saw it,
however, and took him to their hearts. They
adopted tho idea of the beneficent unclo,
and put it into song and story. Then they
accepted him as ho was portrayed, thin and
elongated, long-haired, hatchot-faeed, and
wearing raiment the liko of whlchnever was
seen on land or sea striped pantaloons of an
economical cut, n swallow-tailed coat of
most antiquated design, a high hat that is a
challenge to all modern head wear, and a vest
gaudier than a tropical bird. This became
the familiar llguro which, in comic art, rep
resented our beloved country. Tho Idea took
definite form; ltbecamo fixed in our fancy;
It was a creation destined to live and to
grow. Uncle Bam becaino a fact, a reality,
a part ot ourselves and our history.
Ho was first made laminar to nis peoplo in
Yankoo Notions, a comic paper that nour
ished more than a quarter of a century ago,
but has long slnco climbed tbe golden stair.
Nast was tho first artist to lift our revered
unclo out of rldtculo and contempt, endow
him with proper dignity and mako him a
distinctive and honored character, though
he claims no credit for It He says he re
members him as far back as bo can remem
ber nuythlng In the way of pictures. The
other aitlsU assert that Nast has mado him
what he is a kind, wise, courageous, quick
witted, sunny-spirited, dignified, lovablo old
man, keenly alive to everything affecting the
interests of his peoplo; in snort, a gentle
man. Ono of the whims of caricature Is to make
Unclo Sam fat and jolly when "times aro
good," and thin and sad when finances lan
guish. Keppler, of I'uck, first made him fat
In the prosperous days of '79. One of Nast's
hits was giving him a swollen silver leg and
one good solid gold leg during tho monetary
. I nn.l l, nlnLfl
CUlllurciliU ill rimiM uiiu .ue .uuij cauw
nicnt in the west, somo years ago. The silver
leg was gouty, and could only bo moved by
means of straps and pulleys. It tied him to
the chair and mado an invalid of him, of
course. It was Nast, too, who represented
him as an eagle.
It is interesting to seo how the character
of "Uncle Sam" has developed with tho
character of his people. Ono realizes this
by comparing somo of the old portraits of
him with the more modern. In Nast's alle
gorical sketches we have soen him In all the
phases ot bis strong, spirited and noble
character. Ho has wept with Columbia
over the bier of heroos; ho has held fast to
the old flag when It was riddled with shot
and shell; be has turnod his gray head aside
in humiliation when publlo trusts wero be
trayed and honors abused; he has mourned
over bis slain sons as they lay In the valleys,
on tbe hills, and by tbe rivers ot tbe south.
Ills keen wit has mercilessly punctured
shams and his big heart swelled with
sympathy when the children of his adoption
suffered. Dear, quaint, grand, old Uncle
Sam, may bis kind and rugged face ever
beam upon us in lovo and good wilL When
he smiles bis people rejoice; when he weeps
or frowns they aro sorrowful or wayward.
An eccentrlo person is our dear old uncle,
surely. Though ho mixes much with states
men and Is an honored figure in councils of
tho great, be cares more for the society of his
old pet eaglo than for all tho fine peoplo of
the earth. And bis flagl Nothing under
tho sun Is so sacred to him as that- With
what pride he uplifts It How bravely ho
stands by it What sublime faith he has In
it The Fourth ot July is tho greatest day
ot tho year to him. On that day, 17T0, bo
was born. lie was tbe babo for whom tho
bells were rung; he was tbe hope of tho
men who met and voted for Independence;
bo was the first free born American child
and be bos fulfilled the hopes of tbe people
who rejoiced over his birth. To-day he is
godfather to Ibe greatest nation on the face
of the earth. "Stand clear there, all alrth
and oceanl" he says, "my bands are fro
now and I'm goln' to hyst a nag so big tbat
it'll cover most o' the land and a good bit ot
And he lias something to say to his chil
dren on his nolsv birthdav. He would toll
them that unless thoy are just to each other
they cannot continue to prosper. He will
tell them that when thoy defraud or oppress
each other they nro vexing bis spirit and
bringing themselves to grief. He will urge
the strong to bo less solflsh and bisplro tho
weak with hope. Ho will teach them anow
tbe definition ot freedom, the same o
Christ taught when ha snld, "Tha truth shall
make you free," Qehtiiudk Gauruon,
Tho distinctive feature of truo patriotism
Is that it is pledged to tho idea which one's
country represents. It doos not accept and
glory In its country merely for what It Is at
present and lias boon lu tue past, nut tor
wuat It may bo.
WHO WON OUR INDE
O, few and w eak their number were,

ment are patriotism and the for of God.
They aro blended In the heart of Moses. In
tho wilderness ho bore tho Hebrew people In
his heart Religious patriotism stimulated
hli genius, supported him In bis perplexities,
and mado tho desert groen. When at last be
stood upon Mount Flzgah nnd looked upon
lint rich landscape of Palestine, which hli
sand-stained feet must not pross, Its loveli
ness wore a tinge of beauty which the sun
beams could not shod, from the thought that
there tho ignorant peoplo for w horn ho had

mysterious mission among the nations ot the
The story of Samuel, whoss heart, will,
prayers, wisdom nnd vlrtuo wero for his
countrymen, Is n lesson of patriotism. Point
ing to that name, tho Jew may now dispute
with us against tho career of Washington
for the honor of giving to tho race the model
When wo pronounce tho name or David
wo think of tho enthusiasm that wielded the
hero's sword and touched the poet's harp for
tbe glory of his nation. Nobler than bis mili
tary valor was tbo ambition that urged him
to rouro the dormant penius of his land and
to enshrine and celebrate its hallowed memo
ries in odes and jubilant hymns. From his
hfart burst the gush of feeling which the
Christian church now uses as the expression
of a spiritual patriotism: "Pray for tbe
peace of Jerusalem ;-thoy shall prospor that
love then. Peace be wltuln thy walls, and
Erosperity within thy pa acos. tor my
rethren and companions' sakes, I will now
say, 'Pence b within thee.'" And It is In
tho Psalms that we rood tha touching lament
as from the heart of patriotism Itself, "How
shall we sinz tho Lord's sone In a stranco
landt If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my
right band forget her cunning. Iot my
tongue cleave to tho roof of my mouth, If I
profer not Jerusalem abovo my chief Joy."
Do wo not read that even he whose love
embraced tho whole race In its scope, tho
eternal and impartial love made flesh, who
pronounced the parable of the Good Samari
tan, and shed the warmth of that spirit
throuzh bis life into tbe frosty air of human
sentiment, felt more keenly the allnatlon of
his countrymon according to the llesb than
bo felt the SDear point nnd the nails, and
paused over the beautiful city of David to
utter a lament whose burden swopt away
tbe prospect of his own lowering destiny.
"O, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, bow often would
I have eatbered your children together.
even as a hen gathereth her chickens under
her wings, and ye would notl Behold your
bouse Is left unto you desolate." Behold the
patriotism of Paul. His countrymen de
nounced him. They said that be bad out
the ties which bound him to his race, bo
cause ho preached that Moses was not tbe
highest nnd final religious teacher. He
slighted tbe temple worship and labored
zealously for tho new sect of Nazarenes, and
tbe Jews, wherever ho traveled, echoed the
cry of the priestly party in Jerusalem, that
be was a traitor to tbe traditions of his
fathers and an enemy of tho Hebrews. But
the noblest patriotic spirit was in him. In
that respect he may bo safely copied by
those who lovo their country In every age.
He saw what was tho mission of the Hebrew
race. He was so loyal to bis people that he
braved their ignorance and bigotry In order
to socuro the fulfillment of tho national call
ing, and so attached to his blood and race as
to feel keenly his Isolation from their sym
pathy, and to be willing to sacrifice himself
everything but uls country's ralssion-
oven to bo "accursed from Christ 'for his
brethren, his kinsmen, according to the
ileih." T. 8. K.
HOW THE BELL RANG.
Jolt 1. 1771
Thire was tumult in the city,
In the quaint old Quaker town.
And the streets were black with people.
Pacing re.tlras up anl down;
People, (gathering In coniera,
Where they whispered each to each,
And thu sweat stood on their temples
With tho earnettnexs of speech.
As the black Atlantic currents
I.afl)i the wild New Englaud shore.
So they lieat aulu.t tho state house,
bo they surged ngulnst Ita doort
And the mingling of their vetoes
Made n haituouy profound,
Till the quiet street of Chestnut
Was all turbulent with aound.
"Will they do ill" "Dare they do Itf"
"Who Is speaking?" What's tho newsl
"What of Adamir "What of Carroll!"
Oh. Cod grant they won't refuse."
"Make some ay there!" "Let me uearerf
"I am stunner' 'Stifle then!
When a nation's life's at hazard
We're no time to think of niou!"
Bo they beat against the portal,
Man and woman, maid and child)
And the July sun In heaven
On tho crowd looked down and smiled.
The samo sun that saw the Spartan
Shed his patriot blood 111 vain.
Now beheld the Soul of Freedom
All unconquered rlso again.
Bo they beat against the portal.
While all solemnly lilstdo
The delegates to congress,
With but reason ror their guide.
O'er a simple scroll debated,
Which, though simple It might be.
Could shako tho cllrfs of England
With the thunders of the free.
At the portal uf tho state house,
Like some beacou In a storm,
Round which waves are wildly beating,
blood a slender, boyish form,
With his ets Used on the steeplo
And his ears agape with greed.
To catch th. flr.t announcement
Ot the signing of tho deed.
Aloft In that high steeplo
Sat the bellman, old and grayt
lie was sick of Urttlsh power, Z
lie was sick or llrltlsh payi
So he sat lthleao hand ready
On the clapper of the bell,

As the boy upon the porta!

And sends the good news making

How thsy shouted! What rejolclngl

How th. bontlres and the torches

And from the (lames, like phccnlx,

THE FOURTH OF JULY AT
Eairlosvlllo Intended to celebrate Its Fourth
of July In what tho committee of arrange-
mcnta announced in The Weekly Trumpet,
ns "a fit and appropriate manner. " Thero
was to bo a procession from the brick church
to Thompson's grove, comprising Sunday
school scholars In blue sashes, a Goddess of
Liberty In nil open carriage, young poopio
of both soxes on horsoback, dignitaries on
wheels, no end of banners, and plenty of
drumming nnd bugling.
At tuo grovo there were to be une noing
Lawyer Hlckard was to read the Declaration
of Independence. Throe other vlllago nota
bles wero to mako speeches. 10 uo suro,
thev would bo verv loni and very dull
speeches, but tho citizens of Eagloavllfe were
most lonlent critics. Thoy took n com
mon prldo In knowing that thoy had threo
men among them w ho could stand up before
the whole community and say something In
fine language, not forgetting their Latin.
The town liked the violent stylo of oratory,
and theso speakers wero especially gifted
when It came to making a noise. They
made up In bluster and fustian for what
they lacked In grace and eloquence, nna
wero always warmly congratulated. Thoy
were the sworn foes of tne uritisn lion, ana
when It came to sending the eaglo aloft none
could surpass them. After tbe speeches
there would bo a dinner, a nrodlgious bnn-
quet, at which roost fowl, cako and Ice
cream would bo sorved In abundance uy
the prettiest young ladies of tbo vlllago and
vicinity, in wbito dresses and blue sasues,
and lemonade was to flow liko water.
In addition to all those excitements a cannon
was to bo fired at 10 ociock a. m., nro
crackers wero to bo lavishly resorted to
throughout tho day, and fireworks wore to
top off the celebration at night
Thedoy came, as all sot days of tba future do,
however slowly thoy travel, and agorgoous
and memorable day tt wo, in a meteorologi
cal as well as celobrlous sense. Tho procos
slon formed promptly at tbe stated hour and
moved off with its banners, its fifes and
drums, Its beautiful Goddess of Liberty, its
dashing young equestrians nnd sober pedes
trians. It was a pity that so fine a pageant
should have no spectators to enjoy it Every
body had contributed to swell Its ranks, snvo
a dozen matrons who wero a'ready in tho
grovo superintending tho dinner, and two or
threo superannuated old couples who never
loft tbolr homes. This fact did not prevent
the procession from taking prido in itself.
It courageously kept tho middle or tbe road.
took Its own dust and patriotically moved
forward to tbo grovo In broiling happiness.
ONE OP THE GIFTED SPEAKERS.
Neither did the fact that there was
nobody to keep out of the way, no
crowd to keep in order, prevent
the gallant marshal, Mark Lyons, from per
forming tho most active duty. Ho rodo rap
idly up and down the line, in a plumed bat
and red sash, on a charger tbe best tho
county could afford. He was a handsome
man anywhere; but on a fine horse, In a
plumed bat and gay sa&h, thp re wasn't his
match for manly beauty In Center county.
He realized this, and took a keen pleasure In
giving the community a chance to admlro
his fine figuro and handsome face. Tbe
maidens adored him and the young men en
Yet, while basking In admiration and
reveling in self-satisfaction, ho was miser
able. Tbe "one, one woman under tbe sun"
whose admiring glances he most craved
wasn't there to seo him In his splendor.
Pretty Kitty McIJonald was angry with
htm, and tbe Goddess of Liberty was tbe
cause of the trouble. And Kitty had been
Ul, and was still too feeble to tako part In
the day's exercises. Mark felt suro she was
staying away to rob him of tbo satisfaction
of showing on berore ner. ininking it all
over, be made up bis mind that, rather than
lose such a chance of impressing bcr In bis
capacity of marshal of tbe day, he would
ride around to her bouse after ho got his pro
cession safely mto the grove, and try to make
bis peace with ber at all hazards. This de
cision so Inspired him that he fairly worked
himself to death, keeping imaginary ob
stacles out of tbo line ot march, and stirring
up no end of honest Center county dust
meantime Kitty McDonald, in a pretty
white gown, was gently rocking In a big
chair on tho vino-covered porch of ber
home at the west end of thu village, taking
cruel pleasure In tho thought that "Mr.
Mark Lyons might ride beside the carriage
ot the Goddess ot Liberty all day, if be
wanted; bo wouldn't bavo ber thero to see
bis scandalous conduct, anyway."
Another person, usually present at all
parados and great events in Eaglesvllle, was
also absent This was Jimmy Carroll, agod
12. Jimmy bad resisted all tbe allurements
ot the procession and tbe picnic. His chums
were dumbfounded at his indifference to
such madly Interesting things as a procession
and dinner, to say nothing of such joys as
abundant firecrackers and unlimited lemon
ade. Indeed, Jimmy rather curled his Hps
at tho mention of firecrackers, and said
things to tbo effect that they were good
enough for children, but for persons of
mature mind like himself, bigger noises were
necessary to tbe expiession of true love of
And so tbe youth from bis end ot the town
set sail early toward tbo scene of action
without htm. me wily Jimmy laughed in
bis Bleeve. He bad somo peculiarly patrlotlo
fish to fry that would beat all the publlo
doings down in the village. Now Jimmy
adored Kitty Meuonald, whose parents were
bis mother's nearest and most cordial neigh
bors, and be was bent on staying at borne or
near by, and doing certain things be had
planned which would tie suro to entertain
Kitty and impress her wltb a sense of bis
brilliancy and bravery. Yes, Jimmy was
very deeply In love with Kitty, It was pre
posterous, ot course, for she was a young
lady and he was a small boy, but such things
are not at all uncommon; and then Jimmy
was so large, in ms mina, ne couldn't realize
that others thought bim a child. Next In In
tensity to bis love for Kitty came his dislike
tor Mark Lyons, bis apparently successful,
full-grown rival. Jimmy envied Mark his
25 years and splendid figure.
lint on tbe morning ol tbe Fourth J! nruv
felt sure that by sundown be would be far in
advance of Mark Lyons in Kitty's estima
tion. He bad the field all to himself and
meant to work It thoroughly, and he did.
Everything was as quiet as bunday In tbe
west end of Eaglesvllle, Just what Jimmy
wanted. Tbe noises be was about to treat
the tew remaining citizens to would have so
much better effect, lie brought from the
garret the barrel of an old Revolutionary
musket a precious rello which bad lost Its
stook by having been rudely b'trled from tbe
garret window w hen the bouse was on lire-
He charged this w Ith powder and bound It
firmly to a log of wood taken from the fam
ily woodpile In the back yard, thus making
a cannon of it, nnd got nil ready to touch It
otf in honor ot John Hancock, Mr. Adams
and the other pioneers of Independence, He
kept nn eye on Kitty McDonald, rocking
soltly on her vlno-coverod porch, occasion
ally chatted w Ith ber aero is the fence, and
was as bappy a little patriot as ever dabbled
In powder, Tho cannon was rusty and ro-
luseu to gooir, in splto oi Jimmy's best ef
fort. Hut he was not to be battled lonsr.
He pilod wood around tho vent of it, set the
wood on fire, and retreated to the front yard
to await results. Tbey came. There was
an explosion that shook everything In tbe
vicinity, knocked Kitty McDonald's grand,
mother senseless, tilled both backyards with
flying embers, and sot tbe family linen on
tbe clothes lines on fire.
But after all this wasn't a bail thing for
Jimmy, alttiougu be hadn't contemplated
such a tremendous etfect. He rushed valiant
ly to the rescue, cut tbe clothos lines and
gathered up tbe scattered burning brands
before tbe bouses were burned, and estab
lished himself in the minds of bis aunt and
Kitty on a comfortable basis ot bravery at

MARK LYONS, IS ALL 1119 OLOnT.
It took some tlmo to get everything
Straightened up again. After all was run
ning smoothly onco more, Kitty bad is little
luncheon ot lco cream and other dainties
served on tho vine-covered porch, nnd
Jimmy and his aunt wero Invited over.
Jimmy thought it all In all, the most gor
geous and blissfully bappy day ot bis ex
istence. While they ate and ssiattod a neighbor,
who had left the festivities early, passed by
and paused nt the gate longenough to dmcr lbe
the glories of the celebration. Mark Lyons,
bit fine appearance and gallant conduct as
marshal were dwolt upon. This was a cup
of wormwood for Jimmy, but It was noih
ing to tbe bitterness which flooded bis soul
when ho saw Mark Lyons, In all his glory,
rldo up to the gate nnd mako bold to alight
About that time Jimmy's aunt remembered
pressing duties nt home and rose to depart,
intimating to Jimmy that certain duties
awnltcd him al-o. But for that ho would
bavo bad the courage to remain where he
was and bravo it out with Mark Lyons. He
went with joalousy and envy gnawing at his
heart like two hungry rats.
As soon as be was on his own ground he
prepared to discharge bis last patriotic, Par
thian nrrow, as it wore. Just below the
slight hilt that tbe McDonald house occupied
a blacksmith's shop stood. It was a quiet
spot, even on ordinary days, standing as It
did otf tho street a distance. But to-day It
was particularly lonesome, tbe blacksmith
being down nt tho grovo with the other pa
triotic citizens. Its doors were closed, but an
accommodating window on the west side was
raroly shut, and Jimmy Carroll know Just
how to get Into It Ho and tho blacksmith
wero on tho bost of terms, and Jimmy bad
long bad tt In his mind's eyo as the fit and
proper theatre for a certain bit of recreative
pleasure in contemplation.
Tho two youn people on the veranda
were so much engaged in quarreling about
tho black-eyed Goddess of Liberty that they
did not see Jimmy as ho walked past with' a
look of expectant triumph on bis face and a
queer looking basket swinging from one
band. Tbey would have shown more Interest
In him, I am sure, bad they known that tbe
queer looking basket was an old felt hat
sewed up with twine, and that it contained
a can of dynamite which Jimmy had kept
bidden In his aunt's best cupboard for
month. Thoy would have been more than
Interested had tbey known at that minute
what was pnssing in Jimmy's bitter little
heart Hut lovo and jealousy were making
them both so unhappy that they could see
nothing in the world outside of themselves
and their auger.
JIMMY CARROLL AND 1113 QUEXn LOOkUNO
Jimmy tramped ou, taking comfort In the
thought that the explosion ho was about to
produce would be ono of tbe loudest the vil
lage had ever heard. It would undoubtedly
astonish Miss Kitty and win her unaallfied
admiration, and would just aa surely cover
Mark Lyons with confusion and fill his soul
with envy. These thoughts were floating
gayly In the boy's mind as bo entered the
blacksmith shop through the window and
laid his can of dynamite on the anvil. To
be suro, there wero some things about dyna
mite which it would have been well for Jim
my to know, but ns loog as ho didu't know
them be knew nothing of fear. He se
lected a sledgehammer as heavy as be
could well swing and got ready to treat
Eaglesvllle to a very loud noise. Just at
that moment Mark Lyons, In a very intense
voice, was saying to pretty Miss McDonald:
"Kitty, bow can you bo so cruel. I love uo
woman In the world but you. As for tbe
uoddess or Liberty'
J ust what bo was going to say about tbat
extraordinary beauty was never known.
His defense was cut short by a frightful
noise and a rain of timbers, a crashing of
the very house about bis and Miss Kitty's
ears. Instinctively he selil Kitty in bis
arms and whirled ber Inside tbe sitting
room door, Just as the porch upon which

to tbe proper furnishing ot a blacksmith
shop covered the highway.
Hut Jimmy Carroll had gone, and though
many bad heard, nono bad seen him going.
Had the wost end ot Eaglesvillo been more
