'Tis the day (unless history's page I forget) When the men of the weak little colonies met, And they signed a great paper that said they were free, Independent in power, " and of right ought to be"— Free from all England's rule, so they said unto her, Then they had a big row to find out if they were. They declared they were free from their sovereign liege, Then they backed their remarks with a seven years' siege; And we celebrate now, not the day they were free, But the day they declared they intended to be— Said they'd rise in the world; that they'd conquer or die, And that's what they did on the Fourth of July. Now instead of just howling this gala day through, Let us settle on something we're going to do. Let us not merely laugh that our country is free (Made so by old men with more courage than we), Let us swear us a swear; let us vow us a vow That we're bound to be heard from on earth anyhow. They could always have lived and have never been free, They could live as they were, and so also can we; But they've set an example. The least we can do Is to hatch some big scheme and to carry it through, And to enter the battle to conquer or die, And a good time to start is the Fourth of July. JIMMY'S FOURTH. ll® ;fl from the Ticket Ag?eenntts at stations Sshw------ If you had asked any one of the boys of the Pelham grammar school who was the most popular boy in school he would have answered without hesitation "Jimmy Mc- Kinley." You might suppose from this that Jimmy was a rich, handsome little fellow, but he was only a very red-headed Irish boy, the only son of a widowed mother, who took in washing from some of the best families in Pelham. And as for beauty, Jimmy's fair skin was so crowded with freckles that all the new ones had to overlap the others, and the stiff red hair would never stay in place any more than the buttons would keep their hold on his rough jacket. But he had a pair of merry blue eyes trying his best to keep his face sober, and he won friends every day of his life. The boys all liked him for his bright, sunny temper, his perfect honesty and a manly way he had of standing up for anything that was suffering or being abused, whether it was a boy or a dog. But about the cow. At the time when our story begins, as the novelists say, there wasn't any cow in the Widow Mc- Iiinley's barn, but out under an apple tree in the small orchard lay the poor dead creature which had helped to support the family for the last fl\ne years, and which Jimmy had driven, or rather accompanied, to pasture every summer morning and tenderly cared for in the winter, until she seemed to him like a friend. People used to laugh good naturedly when they saw Jimmy coming down the street, with one hand on Mollie's horns, feeding her choice handfuls of clover and asking her if it was good. One sharp, cruel stroke of early summer lightning had been quite enough to still the heart of the poor, faithful brute, and Jimmy and his mother, on this bright, sunny morning, were sobbing and bewailing their loss. I fear that the first thought in the widow's mind was that Jimmy must now stay out of school and be put to work,and he was such a bright scholar that she had almost hoped the cow would fit him for college. Mollie gave an unusually large quantity of milk, as if she knew that it was intended for a poor widow, and Jimmy thoroughly enjoyed taking it on his little handcart to his customers, be cause every one said that it was the best milk to be had in town. The poor boy mourned as for a lost friend. Up on the ball ground of the Pelham grammar school the boys were discussing Jimmy's misfortune. Jimmy was pitcher in the baseball nine, and a famous pitcher too. "Poor Jamesie I" said Bob Millet. "He loved Mollie next to his mother. Why didn't that unlucky streak of lightning hit one of Farmer Dent's cows? He could easily spare one." - "Father says Jimmy will have to leave school now and go to work," said Lester Quimby. "They can't afford to buy another cow,and Mrs.McKinley is not able to work all the time on account of her rheumatism. So Jimmy will have to help support the family." "What a shame!" cried little Harry Wilbur, jumping with the ease of a, Japanese acrobat from the high post on which he had been 3itting||f"I say, boys, let's buy 'em a new cow! " I'll give all my fireworks money if you'll do the same, and I know we can get our fathers to. help. Come on!" . V "My Fourth of July money is a pretty small sum this year," said Tommy Trask, "but I'll give it every cent. Three cheers for red-head Jimmy!" The boys all gave the cheers with a will and added an especially ferocious "tiger," and after that subscriptions came in easily. Harry Wilbur took out his small memorandum Book add recorded the amounts in a very neat, exact hand, and in every case suggested immediate payment. "Cash down saves a great deal of trouble, you know, boys," he said.SpHe was wise enough to know that the tempting packages of fire-crackers, the rockets, Roman candles and fane; pieces displayed in Gunther's window might prove too strong an attraction for their pocket-books. "See here,Harry!" exclaimed one, "this plan rules out all the fun Fourth of July morning—no powder, no crackers, the whole town as still as Sunday." "Fun!" shouted Harry. "Wouldn't you call it the best kind of fun to buy a prime cow and drive her up to the Mc- Kinley's on the morning of the Fourth?" Three cheers for Harry Wilbur were called for and given with zest, and the boys went into the schoolroom with minds full of fine cows and pocket money. But the most that could be raised among them all was a small sum compared with what was needed. "Let's earn the rest," suggested the captain of the P. G. S. baseball nine. "It won't be our presenfif we beg the money of our fathers." The suggestion met with favor, and the boys worked for the next four weeks as if the welfare of the town depended on what they could earn. They solicited errands from the grocers and farmers and mill owners. They drove cows and picked greens and sweet flag to sell in the neighboring town. They fished and hunted for game, and gathered great bunches of young wintergreeu which they carried to the express station two miles away and sold to the passengers. Every Saturday night they had a meeting in Harry Wilbur's barn to count over what they had earned during the week. It was really astonishing how the money grew. Mr. Wilbur kept it in his safe,and he had to count it about six times a week for the boys' satisfaction. The air was full of excitement. Poor Jimmy, in the meantime, was sorrowfully working away on his lessons, believing that this was his last chance with bis beloved books. The boys were almost too kind to him. And yet he could see that they had a secret which they were carefully keeping from him. It hurt the boy, for he loved them all. Even Harry Wilbur, whom he had drawn to school on his sled in the winter and had taught to swim and skate, was careful to stop talking with the boys when Jimmy came on the playground. But they all made him presents of nice things from home and treated him like a little prince, which he was in heart if not in station. It is not unlikely that the money in Mr. Wilbur's safe received a few additions: from the larger purses of the boys' fathers' who were in the secret. At all events there was quite enough on the Saturday morning before the Fourth of July to buy-; a fine cow. Mr. Wilbur took six of the,, boys in his double carriage over to a large farm, and apout five times as.in more walked over to assist in the iin tant business of selecting the very cow to be had for the money. They inspected a great number before they were quite satisfied, but at last the farmer showed them a beautiful, gentle-eyed creature with a smooth, deep red coat and a long, arrow-shaped mark on her forehead. He said she was very kind and easily managed, and gave an abundance of the richest milk. The boys were delighted with her, and each of the thirty-six walked around her and inspected lver with great seriousness. It was their purchase, and if they had not earned the right to be critical, I do not know who had. Harry Wilbur named her Rocket on the spot, on account of the mark on her forehead, and perhaps with another idea in his mind. Never was a cow more hospitably treated than was Rocket during the next few days. In the stable of Mr. Wilbur's barn she was visited every day by crowds of boys, and was fed on clover and other choice green things, which seemed perfectly to agree with her, for on the morning of the Fourth her sleek coat looked like a shiny garnet satin. Jimmy McKinley looked out of his window before breakfast that morning—of course the boys could not wait any later than that! There were all the boys coming up the road, and leading by a long evergreen rope something that moved, to be sure, but was so crowned with wreaths and vines and ferns that one would hardly have suspected what it was. Jimmy did not stand on ceremony, but rushed out to meet the procession and see what was on hand. Harry Wilbur's eyes shone like two stars—he was so excited—and when he led pretty,large-eyed Rocket up to Jimmy, and put the end of the evergreen rope in his hand and tried to make the little speech which he had prepared with such pains, something felt very queer in his throat and he could only say: "She's yours, Jimmy. We boys earned her, and you can come to school now. Oh, dear! oh, dear!" and the little fellow threw himself on the ground and cried for joy. Jimmy stared in amazement, and when he fully understood that the beautiful gift was for him, and that the boys had loved him enough to give it to him, his laughing blue eyes grew misty, too, and his poor mother broke down entirely and showered rich blessings right and left. f , -i ^ s > But Tommy Trask was equal to the occasion, and he proposed three cheers for the Widow McKinley, and three for Jimmy and three times three for Rocket, and then they danced around the bewildered cow and, cheered her until their throats were dry. '•? • .' ^ •;/ • -• CHRIST'S ASCENSION. LESSON I, THIRD QUARTER, INTERNATIONAL SERIES, JULY 3. Text of tlie Lesson, Acts i, 1-13—Memory Verses, 8-11—Gol<len Text, Acts i, 9. Commentary by tlie Rev. D. M. Stearns. 1, "The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus bej^an both to do and teach." As the Gospels are a record of all that Jesus began to do and teach by the Holy Spirit, so this book and the epistles are a record of all that Jesus continued to do and teach by the same Holy Spirit through the apostles. The daily life of every true believer should be a further continuance of the same doiny and teaching by the same power in us (John xvi, 7, 8; Math, x, to the former treatise see Luke 1, 1-1. Observe that doing; comes before teaching, and compare Math, v, 19. 2i "Until the day in which He was taken up, after that He through the Holy Spirit had given commandments unto the apostles whom He had chosen." He wrought and taught until the day He was received up£ So should it be with us, all the moments filled for Him until "absent from the body present with the Lord," or possibly "until He come" for body and soul. ffi "To whom also He showeth Himself aliye after His passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the. things pertaining to the kingdom of God." See the record of eleven arances during the forty days after resurrection in Mark xvi, 9; Math, iii, 9, 10; Luke xxiv, 16, 34, 36; John xx, xxi, 1; Math, xxviii, 16,1"; 1 Cor. xv, 6, rake xxiv, 50, 51. In all His preaching kingdom was very prominent, see Math. iv|23; ix, 35. . "And being assembled together with tb sm, commanded them that they should n< i depart from Jerusalem, but wait for ti i promise of the father, which, saith He, y< have heard of me." Wherever it was tn it He met them at this time the great tBfng to be observed is that they were not o forth until qualified by special power im on high. His presence with them for or three years was not a sufficient ification; they must receive in fullness same power which wrought in Hinland this could not be till He was trifled (John vii, 39). • ijjj; "For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence." As to tlie Spirit's connection with Christ see Mark ij|8; Acts x, 38; Luke iv, 1; Math, xii, 28; f b. ix, 14; Rom. viii, 11. And if Christ mself was powerless, apart from the smrit, how much more are we? See the difference between an ordinary believer aid one filled with the Spirit, in Peter be- £<|te and after Pentecost; observe also that as much disobedience not to be filled ih the Spirit as it is to be drunk with e (Eph. v, 18). "When they therefore were come tocher, they asked of Him, saying, Lord, thou at this time restore again the dom to Israel?" He had told them they were foolish not to believe all 'the prophets had spoken, and He had opened their understanding that they the. ScriptureSgXLuke Timely Thoughts. Fourth of July orations should not be empty glorifications of America,but rather expositions of American freedom, said the late Rev. Howard Crosby, which will equally resist the tyranny of tlie government and the tyranny of the mob, which insists on law and order as the only security of personal liberty, and which will crush the anarchist as quickly as the despot. The great public should have these fundamental doctrines expounded to them on our great national holiday, and the people should so thoroughly understand them that any attempt by man or church to mar the symmetry of our liberties would be met by an cll'ectiial and crushing indignation. We do not sufficiently appreciate our enormous advantages, and hence we are careless regarding their conservation. Were these advantages lost the world would be set back many centuries. Let us therefore encourage true American sentiment as the antidote to the poison introduced among us from foreign sources, and let our Fourth of July be consecrated to the elevation of the American standard.

The Chattanooga Times has offered the following receipt: "Let us throw ourselves into it head over heels in a regular old-fashioned schoolboy somersault. Let us not think of business on that day at all —it won't hurt any of us mentally, morally, physically or financially, to take one day off for fun. Turn all the boys loose, with the single admonition that so loug as they keep sober and don't violate any law the whole town and all the rest of the world is theirs for twenty-four hours at least. Don't be afraid there will be too much racket—the more noise of an innocent sort the better. And be sure to decorate, 'not with paint,' but with flags and bunting and all manner of gorgeous colors. Be sure to have 'Old Glory' everywhere, with forty-two stars on him. Make him the most conspicuous feature of the day. " 'Through the rockets' red glare And bombs bursting in air, Let us see through the night That the flag is still there.' "Let's have plenty of music, too—music of a national patriotic sort that will make our hearts beat faster and our steps grow quicker and prouder." Lessons of the Fourth.

The kingdom of which the prophets are full sis a kingdom to be restored to Israel, and such great promises as Isa. ix, 7; xxiv, 23; xxxv, 10; lx, 21; Jer. iii, 17, 18; xxiii, 5, 6; xxxi, 35, 36; Iizek. xxxvii, 21, 22, and a host of others, have no reference to the church, but to the kingdom for which the apostles rightly looked. 7. "And He said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His o-.vn power." He did not say that their ques tion was a wrong one, nor that they misunderstood the nature of His kingdom; He spoke only of the knowledge of the time being withheld. He had taught them that it .was to be postponed till His return (Luke xix, 11, 12), but they had not received it. In chapter iii, 20, 21, the Spirit through Peter very plainly teaches that when Jesus conies again lie will restore all things of which the prophets have spoken. 8. "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto me unto the utter most part of the earth." The kingdom promised at Horeb upon condition of obe dience (Ex. xix, 5, 6; Dent, v, 2, 8) having been finally forfeited by Israel (Math, xxi, 43) that other nation (I Pet. ii, 9), the church gathered out of all nations, must now be completed by the preaching of the Gospel as a witness unto all nations, and then shall the end come (Math, xxiv, 14). The end of this age, and the beginning of the next, when Jesus will return to fulfill to Israel the unconditional promises which were made to Abraham and David, and then will He restore the kingdom the apostles sought. 9. "And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight." In the Gospel it is said (Luke xxiv, 51) that while He was bli ssing them He was parted from them and carried up into Heaven. 10. "And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparal." Angels at His birth, at His death and at His ascension; augt-ls with Him in the wilderness and in the garden; angels that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word (Ps. ciii,20). Ministering spiritssent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation (Heb. i, 14). 11. "Which also said, this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner JUS ye have seen Him go into heaven." The prophet Zechttriah tells us that He shall come to that same Olivet, and that in that day the mountain shall be cleft in two (Zech. xiv, 4). That He will come for the deliverance of Jerusalem from the nations gathered against her, that He will bring His saints with' Him, that He shall then be King over all the earth, that Jerusalem shali never be destroyed again, and that there shall be held an annual conference of all nations to worship the King, the Lord of hosts. See the whole of Zech. xiv. Having first come to the air for His saints, He will then bring them with Him to judge and to .reign (I Thess. ,iv, 16, 17: iii, 13; I Cor. vi, 2; Rev. v, 9, 10). 12. "Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, which is from Jerusalem a Sabbath day's journey."' In Luke xxiv, 52, it is said that they returned with great joy. Knowing that He would return to restore the kingdom, they now began to serve Him joyfully and expect. Him daily . Thurf it continued until the world and the church became allied in tthe days Of Constnntine, greatly to the church'» disgrace and failure. Only those .who ijoyfrtlly serve H i m and dai 1 y expect Him are >n rail sympathy with Him (Heb. ix,28.) A man who has 'the money to go off for a: summer trip usually lacks the time, and thosie who,have^time usually have no ff a man tells you that he has never made any mistakes in his life, you may be pretty sure that he has neyer^done an thing worth mentioning^ While exploding their fire-crackers and admiring the display of lire-works, the boys aud girls of America must not forget the noble lesson of the Fourth of July. It commemoratli the birth of Artftfllsan in- W* of coming MlUlx iflU 11 aw day to impress on the minds generations the valor and disinterested patriotism of the revolutionary heroes who fought, suffered and died to bequeath to their children and children's children the precious boon af liberty. Had the patriotic fathers of our country failed to adopt the declaration of independence on that famous Fourth of July, 177G, what is now the United States would in all probability still be an English colony with the limited rights grudgingly granted to the Australian colonies and to Canada. Every political blessing we enjoy to-day—and there is no nation in the world enjoys as many—is the result of the labors of the patriot leaders, many of whose names even have been forgotten by the men and women of our generation. Fortunately, the American people are beginning to realize that for many years Fourth of July patriotism has not been of the type which made the revolutionary war a success. In almost every public school the pupils have for several years past been taught to celebrate the day in a becoming manner and to return thanks for the noble work wrought by their greatgrandfathers and perpetuated by their grandfathers and fathers. Liberty without intelligence degenerates into license, and license leads to anarchy. Children old enough to understand the meaning of these terms should band themselves together everywhere to spread the doctriue of pure liberty, sanctioned by law and blessed by Providence. In no other way should the youth of America celebrate the Fourth of July and honor the memory of immortal Washington and his faithful advisers, followers and friends. And if this spirit of '76 animates the boys and girls, the explosion of fire-crackers and kindred noise-producing trifles will readily be forgiven and sanctioned by their fathers and mothers F. E.
