allowed in the park except the members
of tlio committee chosen to Bet off the
flreworks. Tlie surrounding streets were
filled with eager spectators and the
▼erandas and doorstones of tho liousea
in tho vicinity were occupied by favored
acquaintances of the property owner*.
Seated In one corner of a piazza, be
yond tho easy earshot of others, a youth
and a maiden w»re engaged in earnest
conversation. Their cheeks were flushed,
their eyes flashed. Uoth lovers were
high-spirited, and the quarrel in prog
resa was almost flerco in its character.
"I despise tho vulgar Yankees," said
Edith Culpepper. "They are a nation of
braggarts. They think they are smarter
than any other people on the face of the
earth, and they never lose an op]»ortunl
ty to dilato on their superiority. Their
noisy Fourth of July celebrations, of
which wo have a sample to-day, In
which cannon, fish horns and sputtering
fireworks make a hideous racket, strik
ingly illustrate the vainglorious and
■hallow character of the typical Ameri
"1 know you aro angry at me In par
ticular and at all Americans in gen
eral," said Philip llazelton; "but the
circumstances aro so greatly in my far
vor iu this discussion that 1 can afford
to be maifnanimouM and to pity you.
The fact that you knew the Americana
are superior is what vexes you."
It was a keen homo thrust and Miss
Oolpeppea winced. Stubborn prejudice,
k« wever, strengthened her resistance.
"I can readily dispense with your pity
and I emphatically deny that the Amer
icans are superior. One serious blunder
In the war of the revolution alono pre
vented the British from conquering tho
miserable rebels. Instead of ffoiutf on
his foolish expedition to Pennsylvania
Hlr William Howe should have remained
In New York. Then at the proper titno
he could and should have gone tip tho
Hudson valley and formed it junction
with the forces of Hurffoyno before tho
disastrous buttle of Saratoga. Had this
plan, the one dcsijwd by the British
ministry, been earned out, a fatal
wedjfo won M have separated tho colon
ies into two parts, und tho people of
Mew Kngland on tho one hand anil the
people of the middle or southern statea
on tho other hand would surely have
been subdued."
"As well might you argue that if
Washington lutd not crossed tho Dela
ware aud captured tljo Hessians at
Trenton, tho patriots would have be
come so discouraged tiy the tremendous
odds against thciu that they would have
given up the tight aud submitted to tho
yoke of tbu tyrannical British. No;
your method of rcaaonlng is fallacious.
The fato of a nation is decided not by
any one circumstance but by the com
bined result of many circumstances.
There is a large element of chance
that works for good or ill In any
crisis, I admit, but I think that every
intelligent %nd student of

history must acknowledge mat in our
successful wars with Great Britain
chance was not the controlling inrtu- I
ence. Our patriotism founded on right
and our superior ability were the chief
reasons why v»e were victorious. We
were the younger and, seemingly, the
weaker nation ; and yet we conquered
twice. Especially glorious were our
naval victories. In the revolutionary
war John Paul Jones in the Ranger, a
vessel of but 16 guns, for softie time was
a terror to tho whole ctf&st of Scotland
and a part of that of England; and In
tho war of 1812 the splendid victories of
Commodore Perry on Lake Erie and of
Commodore McDonougli on Lake Cham
plain demonstrated our supremacy on
the water.
"I will merely add that your refer
ence to Burgoyne reminds me that my
ancestor, Col. Henry Hazelton, served
under Gen. Schuyler and afterward ac
quitted himself with honor on the fleld
of Saratoga. lam proud of his record
and" I rejoice that the blood of so patri
otic an American flows in my veins."
While young Hazelton was talking,
Edith could scarcely restrain her indig
nation, and as soon on he had finished,
her trembling voice gave sarcastic ut
terance to these words:
"You have condemned vourself. What
you have said shows that like the rest of
tho Americans you are full of vain glory.
As for me, I am proud of the fact that
my great-grandfather was a staunch
tory, a loyal subject of King George,
and that he suffered much in the cause.
His life more than onco threatened
by the rebels, and he lost his valuable
estate in Virginia. With Ills family ho
fled to England and there his descend
ants have since resided. I am the first
one of the name who has ever crossed
the ocean since he left the rebellious
clnnlin I am really disgusted with
tho country and hope soon to return to
London. Nothing could induce mo to
remain hero permanently nnd mnT
an American."
"It is evidently timo for me to go,"
said Ilarelton, coldly. "You and I
have been good friends, but we can be
such no longer. I shall not wait to re
ceive any more hints. This Is probably
our last conversation, so I will say good
by forever."
"Good-by," sho exclaimed, with freez
ing dignity.
Hazelton quickly departed. Ho
pushed into the crowd and made his
way to the edge of tho park. The dis
play was at Its height. Pin wheels wert
whirling forth circles of sparks, flower
pots were tossing upward brilliant
bombs, Itoman candles wcro emitting
dazzling balls and occasionally a
whistling rocket arose and bursting in
midair let fall a shower of differently
colored stars. It was a beautiful sight,
but In his present mood our hero could
not enjoy It. Ho went homo and spent
a sleepless night on his couch. Did lie
care for tho fair tory, after all?
A few days later Hazelton went to
another city to engage in business and
did not return to visit his parents un
til tho day before the next Fourth of
July. On tho evening of tho Fourth he
strolled to the little park to witness a
display of fireworks similar to the one
which has been described. Ho ap
proached tho house, that of an inti
mate friend, where tho memorable
quarrel had taken place anil turned his
melancholy eyes toward the corner
of the veranda where Miss Culpepper
and ho had sat. To his overwhelming
surprise sho was sitting there then.
Ills heart beat tumultiiously, his mind
was confused. Should ho advance or
retreat? While ho hesitated, tho beau
tiful girl recognized him and tho in
viting smile which she bestowed upon
him banished all doubts from his inlniL
His eager manner as he stepped forward
to meet her showed that he ardently
desired a reconciliation. Simultaneous
ly they knew that tho old lovo was
strong 111 spito of the serious quarrel
and tlio painful separation. Her little
hand trembled and nestled in his and
for a time they sat beside each other
silent but supremely happy.
"Then you did not go to England?"
he said.
"No; I wm about to engage pMHfe
on a steamer when my plans were
changed by a peculiar and romantic
circumstance. I chanced one day to be
come acquainted with an old antiquary.
Wo entered into a long conversation
concerning the revolutionary war. In
the course of our talk reference wan
made to your ancestor, Col. Henry
Ilazclton, and to what be/ell my tory
relativen during the war. The anti
quary asked a few questions and then
eagerly exclaimed.' 'Do you know that
Martha Culpepper, a sl*ter of your great
grandfather, the tory refugee, was once
engaged to ( apt. Hazel ton, a brother of
Col. Hazelton?' 'No,' I replied. 'lt
is time then that you were enlightened,'
■aid my friend. 'lt was a sad romance.
Both were 3'oung. He was handsome
and chivalroun, a prince among men;
and iho was renowned for her grace
and beauty throughout Virginia. They
loved each other deeply but both were
headstrong and high-spirited. He warm
ly espoused the American cause; alio
was a thorough tory. Hitter disagree
ments were the result. He joiued the
continental aruiy against her wishes.
At their last interview there were high
words. During the next few years no
letters pawned between them. lk>th re
gret ted the alienation, but each was too
proud to uiaku any overture*. He was
killed at the siege of Yorktown. She
survived him many years, but remained
to the day of her death a melancholy
•pi nater.'
"I was profoundly impressed with the
sad story," Edith cootlnOTd, "and 1 de
rived from It a leason for mvself. Was
I not ul>out to repeat the mistake made
by my ancient relative? I felt that 1
was like her. I poMetmcd the family
inheritance of high spirit and stubborn
insistence on iny own views, even if I
could uot claim a grace and beauty
equal to hern, llescmhiing her in char
acter, I was exposed to the same pitfall
into which she had fallen. Her fate
was a warning to me."

"You are partly light and partly

in this city, and, as I knew you would
come home some time. I did not trust
to chance."
"But how did you know that 1 would
forgive you even if I did come bark?"
"I felt sure that you would not be
foolish. Did you not observe how con

attracted by the brilliance of the pyro

Though slightly mixed, ho was so
thoroughly In earnest that he said
"E'gad!" several times during his dis
course, and when Mr. Hicks said
"E'gad!" he meant it. After considera
ble discussion, it was decided that while
his wife spent the Fourth in the city
with her sister he would hie him to the
shady fastness of Khagburk county and
peacefully fish the day away.
The journey thither, which began at
7 a. m., was an entirely uneventful one,
except for a slight eruption resultant
upon his compliance with the request of
a tall, gaunt woman that ho hold her
baby while she procured a cup of tea at
the lunch counter at Catuniount Junc
tion. Mr. Hicks reads the newspapers.
He also thinks. And when ho saw
from the car window the tall, gaunt
woman rush out of the door at the op
posite side of the lunch room and just
manage to swing on to the end of
the westbound train whlclihad stood
on the other track, he realized how he
been duped.
The sight of a blushing, wild-eyed
man jumping about, like a toad on a
hot skillet and holding wrong end up a
baby which sang war songs in the
Hiwasli language moved Hicks' fellow
passengers to Indulge In loud and
resonant horse-laughs. They also re
minded him In one voice that the game
was older thau the hills and that suck
i era were plentiful that year. In frenzy,
Hicks was übout to cast the young
Apollvon out of the window and dive
after him when the train began to back
and the conductor appeared with a tele
gram and arrested him. And then all
the passengers fell upon Hicks, figur
atively speaking, and lashed him with
cloven tongues
And when they reached the junction
three deputy sheriffs pounced upon
Hicks and would have Waten his brains
out had not the tall, gaunt woman got
h)ipad of them aud scratched a map of
Kamtchatka on his countenance. And
seven men stood ready with ropes, and
the luob cried aloud that he bo
lynched for kidnaping. But the depu
ties saved Ids life and got their pay in
full in satisfaction by beating hliu all
the way to the jail, where ho lay all
day ami all night because the magis
trate hail gone to Ouderdonkvlllu to
make a Fourth of July speech.
And Hicks was Interviewed by re
porters and insulted by the rabble and
swindled out of his supper by a tramp,
who snored all night like a lost soul
and picked Hicks' pocket as they were
being taken iwfore the magistrate upon
the morrow.
And the magistrate, being a sage of
remarkable width between the eyes,

the way down the long vista of the
centuries there is none that -.narks a
air,re important event than that which
bears the declaration of our inde
pendence. The ''divint right uf kings'
had lx*eu the creed that the world had
preached with fire and sword for cen
turies, but from the in#unt.aius and val
leys of the New World, from humble
cabins in the wilderness, from the
shores of the inland seas and the banks
of miffhty rivers the amen of a people
who bad learned the of free
dom from nature herself ascended,
when those brave patriots, our fore
fathers. made that memoftible de. larv
tion which caused tyrants to tremble
upon their thrones and oppression to
prow pale under its (randy trappings of
robe and crown.
The doom of king-croft and priest
craft was then and there pronounced,
anil in the clear light of the new day,
high and holy truths were revealed that
hud long been hidden under the dust of
Superstition and error. Democracy had
Wen railed the dream of the fanatic,
the chimera of the brain of the poet;
but one hundred and sixteen years un
der democracy has shown to Kurope
that it is the throne that is the simu
lacrum, njad that liberty under law, the
law niadchy the people, is the most per
fect form of government the world has
ever seen.
The struggle to free ourselves from
the grasp of tyranny was bitter and
long continued, and thure were times
when it seemed hopeless. The young
nation, weak in numbers and resources,
was confronted by an enemy whose
wealth was inexhaustible and whose
military strength was enormous, and,
had not God been with the brave men
whose watch-word was "Liberty," their
cause would have been lost.
The principles they asserted their
posterity has proven, and upon every
anniversary of our nation's birth the
loyal hearts of the people renew tbeir
plight of faith to our national institu
Our flag has waved over many a
bloody and hard-fought field since the
declaration of independence sent a
thrill through all Europe; but the
wounds are healed, the graves are hid
den with flowers, and peace, mild
eyed and beautiful, broods over the
land, and plenty pours from her horn
the fruits of honest toil, sufficient not
only for our own people, but for the
starving millions of the old world, who
reach out to ns hands of piteous appeal.
We have conquered not only human
foes, but the desert and the wilderness
have l>ecn brought under subjection,
the hidden treasures of th( depths of
the earth huvu l>een yielded up, and to
day we have within our land citiun that
shame the pi-oudes* csnilfib? of the
world. «>—. hi one century have out
stripped those whose foundations were
laid before Lief Kricksson was born, and
wero rich and powerful Iteforo Colum
bus dreamed of a world beyond the
western sea.
It is fitting, then, on thiij day of all
others, that we should patffco to read the
history of our past and the prophecy of
our future. The eyes of the world are
upon us, and we cannot afford to make
mistakes, for the future republics of
America and Kurope will l>e patterned
after ours.
Those who reft" I the of the
times tell us thatiflonarchy in England
is tottering to its fall, that Norway and
Sweden, Germany, Italy and even Im
perial Russia are striving to l»seak the
bonds of tljeir despotism ujid l>ecouiD
free. The United Htates, France, and
even the superstition ridden tropical re
publics of Central and South America
uphold the standard of freedom, and
when the clouds lift but an instant and
the portion of humanity that is crushed
under the Iron heel of despotism catches
a glimpse of the sacred banner tlieir
hearts thrill with new hope.
There is a point where evolution in
government becomes revolution. Wo
reached it one hundred and sixteen
years ago. Kuro]>c may .'each It in our
own time, but among all the future re
publics of the earth our own will for
ever he preeminent, for it was planted
in the virgin soil of a new contineut
and has been guarded by a people to
Whom patriotism is a religion above all
Creeds and loyalty their breath of life.

Haw the Young Should Otaerva tha *»-
tlou'i Aaulrertary
This is the Reason when young
America celebrates the glorknis deeds
of the forefathers, when they cut the
leading strings that Uiuml the in to the
olii wurld, <tal ab>p|«>l forth with the
independence of manhood.
It took Home five hundred year*, fire
centuries of war, intrigue and arro
gaoce, to overspread southern Lurope.
In a little more than one century, says
the Youth'* Companion. America haw
grown t<> a magnitude, in area and per
haps tn imputation also, eqnal to that
of Kainc in its moat magnitioent days.
"Civis Itomanua sum'." was the proud
est boast that could fall from the lips fft
man at the beginning of the Christian
era. Is there to-day an American who
rates his citizenship in the irreat repub
lic at a lower value than Roman free
dom nineteen hundred years ago?
The day for "spread eagle"' brag is
long past, but there is no reason why
we should hesitate to say, what not
wo alone but all the people of the world
believe, that it Is the destiny of thia
country to become the greatest, tha
strongest, the wealthiest, the most self
supporting, of all the nations of the
earth. It is already the greatest self
governing community the world has
ever seen.
How can we make it greater? By
standing together aa Americans. We
shall not magnify, but shall belittle
ourselves, if we swagger before our
neighbors—using bravado for the
strong, and insolence in our treatment
of the weak. But we should take
American views Instead of party views,
when questions arise between this gov
ernment and others.
The motto "America against the
world" would be a contemptible motto.
Yet is it not better to adopt even such
a motto than to take the side of the
world against America, or to be Indiffer
ent when the Interests of one's own
country are assailed?
The Fourth of July is a good time for
us all to resolve that we will be Aiptrri
cans at heart. Not that we will bfltld
up our own country on the ruins of
others, but that when there is a clash
ing of interests those of our native land
shall have our hearty support.
