Relatives were sadly grieved last Sunday afternoon when a telegram came to Mrs. J. W. Coy, stating tl.at her aunt, Mrs. Cornelia Gilmer, had passed away early that 'morning. She was 72 years old. The deceased was a daughter of Capt. James Murrell, and was born and reared in Columbia, but who had been a resident of Honey Grovef Texas, for nearly a half century. She left many relatives in Adair county and four children in Texas, two sons and two daughters. Her husband, who was a prominent citizen of Honey Grove, died ten or twelve years ago. Mrs. Gilmer was a splendid Christian womai and had been a consistent member of the Baptist church for many years. She will be greatly missed in Honey Grove, not only by her" sons and daughters, but by the entire population of that town, as she was exceedingly kind, especially to the unfortunate. Last summer she visited in Columbia and out in the county, and her return to her old home town is most affectionately remembered. May God comfort those who have been so sorely bereft, is the wish of this paper to which she has been a subscriber for more than twenty years. GONE TO HER REST. Miss Mary Trabue, Who Was Coun- Sunday Services. Last Sunday forenoon Eld. F. M. Rains, who was a student in C. C. College, this place, forty-twyears ago, and who married Miss Susie Field in Columbia forty years ago, preached to a large congregation at the Christian He was introduced by his church. class mate, Eld. Tobias Huffaker, and he was given a happy greeting by all those who knew him when he was a young student in this place. Eld. Rains is in mission workand has been for a number ofjyears. He is a minister of strong character and full of information, andhis friends were glad to see him. Rev. R. V. Bennett, the new principal of the Lindsey-Wilso- n School, filled the pulpit at the Methodist Church in the forenoon and the Presbyterian Church at thejevening hour. Both discourses were strongjpresenta-tion- s of the word of God, delivered in a scholarly and mnstjentertaining manner. His subjects were well connected, and from the beginning of his discourses until he closed he had the undivided attention of large congregations. His correct and Jpolished was a source of.Tcomment at the close of his speakingsjgHe is yet a stranger here, but his elegance and thoroughness will soon make him admiring friends.

The recent advance in the price of crude oil is responsible for the great est activity ever known among lease takers in Kentucky, especially so in scrir county. wherever there is any indication of oil, oil scouts in great numbers appear, using every means at their command to obtain desirable leases. There is an unprecedented demand for oil producing properties which has resulted in the leasing of territories far in advance of production. In the proven fields, drilling is being pushed with energy. Oil wells, which had been drilled and given up as far back as 1865 as exhausted with low priced oil, are today being cleaned and put on the pumps. Wells are being drilled deeper, in the hope of increasing the production. During my recent trip through the oil fields, and viewing the great activities that prevail throughout the State of Kentucky, I will say, that never before has there been such a boom in this industry, and with such a demand for the oil. Today a well that produces only a barrel or so, at the present prices is very profitable. Taking this industry in mind, the people of Adair county can readily see what it means to them. Bnsiness makes business, and with the growth of business, comes the prospering of the towns in this field. One of our most urgent needs today, to carry this war to a successful finish, as well as other commodities, is crude oil, for our own Navy as well as for our Allies. Heavy Draft Calls. A total of 367,961 men will be called to the colors in July, it is announced at Washington. This is the largest draft call made in any one month Kentucky will send 2,500 white sol diers to Camp Taylor July 5th to 9th, 3,000 colored soldiers July 16th to 20th, 1,411 colored soldiers July 29th to 31st, and 4,100 white soldiers July 22nd to 25th. tucky Legislature Pertaining to Motor Vehicles, WHICH Last Tuesday Mrs. Martha J. Dunbar' widow of W. P. Dunbar, died at her late home, on Green river. years was about sixty-fiv- e She old and leaves several sons and daughters, all grown. She was known to every body in the Knifley section of the county, where she resided since her marriage which occurred when she was quite a young woman. She had been a member of the Christian church for many years. Her remains were conveyed to the home of T. P. Dunbar, three miles from this place, Wednesday, and there buried by the side of her husband in what is known as the Dunbar graveyard. A great many friends were present. The deceased, before her marriage, was a Miss Tupman, a daughter of Col. John Tupman. The Food Inspector. Mr. Escott, a government food inspector, was here last week, seeing and hotels, tellthe boarding-houseing the proprietors the character of food they must serve for the present. In making flour bread you must mix some meal with it. His announcement in regard to serving beef, he said, you could not sell steak and roast the same day. There is no way here to keep beef on cold storage, hence butchering has ceased for the present. He gave orders in regard to other kinds of food, but said there was no restrictions on serving mutton. We take it that there will be some sheep killing in this county. He also said other inspectors would follow him. s a Member of An Old Adair ty Family, Passes. IS NOW IN OPERATION.

Oscar Capshaw, of Jamestown, was here last Wednesday. He brought his son, four years old, with him to have one of the lad's jaw teeth removed that had been aching for several days. He carried the boy into a dental office, telling him that he had to go out in town and for him to wait there until he returned, then he would have the tooth pulled As soon as he got out the boy told the dentist that he need not wait for his father, and getting up in the chair he said: "take it out," which was done, the boy not even grunting, and there were long roots to the tooth.

Young, who lives in the Joppa community, went to St Anthony Hospital, Louisville, two weeks ago. She was afflicted with cancer of the breast, which was removed. The operation was very successful, the surgeon telling her she would soon be fully restored. She reached home, in company with her husband, Saturday afternoon, in fine spirits At the 1918 session of the General Assembly of Kentucky the new tax law was passed abolishing the office of County Assessor and creating the office of County Tax Commissioner. The new law says it shall be the duty of the tax payers of the county to appear at the office of the County Tax Commissioner from July 1st to October 31st, inclusive, and to furnish said County Tax Commissioner a list of their property of all kinds and descriptions that said Commissioner is required to assess under law. My office will be open every day except Sunday. I kindly ask the tax payers of Adair county to appear at my office as early as possible and give me their list. L. H.

But put it in water and the thing revives, turns freshly green, and begins to sprout anew with life that has been always dormant but never dead. This strange plant is symbolical of Jerusalem. The more rapid recovery from conditions of misery was delayed by the maneuvers of certain speculators whose object was to hinder the British advance into Palestine, bringing with it a vivifying tide of honest Egyptian notes and silver. Scenting profit, rascally speculators went about among the more ignorant, cunningly representing Egyptian notes to be only worth in gold the value of discredited Turkish paper, and they thus succeeded in buying up a quantity at the average price of 3s. 6d. Such chicanery caused great distress to the mass of the people and considerable inconvenience to the military administration by shaking public confidence in the Egyptian bank notes. But the good names of Britain and of Egypt are helping things to right themselves, and trade is now being done in goods coming from Egypt daily. Jerusalem had become like the Hose of Jericho, which had withered and was seemingly dead. To us is it given to watch the Holy City revive and renew her youth.

The demand for wheat for human consumption necessitates that it be used as economically and sparingly as possible for feeding animals and chickens. Some "just as good" rations which contain no wheat have been tried out in egg laying tests by the United States department of agriculture, and excellent results have been secured. Thirty laying hens, to which wheatless rations were fed, produced in the two years covered by the test on an" average of 147.3 eggs for the pullet year, and 121 eggs during the second year. This compares favorably with egg yields secured on other rations containing wheat, and therefore more expensive. The wheatless ration is also being tried on a pen of Buff Orpington pullets and during the past ten months they have laid on an average of lllJ eggs, a very good yield for this period. The wheatless ration used was as follows : Following the items of the census of 1910, the United States department of agriculture has estimated the gross value of the wealth produced on & in 1917 to be $19,444,000,000. This is divided into a total of $13,611,000,000 for all crops and $5,S33,000,000 for animal products and animals sold off farms anit slaughtered on farms. Such totals as these, even though they represent gross values, would have been regarded as fabulous before 1916. The census total of wealth production on farms is 2,500,000,000 for 1SS9, 54,700,000,000 for 1899, and $S,G00,000,000 for 1909, and the estimate for 191.1 is $10,800,000,000. These numbers, being dollars and not quantities of product, are the resultant of two factors, production and price, and hence, as gauges of the productiveness of the agricultural industry, may be above or below the fact. In the ordinary course of events, many years must have elapsed before the products of farms would reach the stupendous aggregate gross value of 1917. The average increase per year from 1SS9 to 1S99 was $2126,000,000 ; lrom li99 to 1909, $3S4,000,000; from 1909 to 1913, $370,000,000, and from 1899 to 1915, 16 years, $379,000,000. At the average annual rate of increase for the 1G years, not until 1938 would the gross value of 1917 be roached, computed as an increase over 1915. Mainly due to increase of price since 191o, the calendar ha been anticipated by 21 years. In the continuous annual record, extending back 21 years, 1911 is the only year with a decline in total gross value of farm products when compared with the preceding year, and that year was one with low production. A year that hardly exceeded the preceding one was 1914, when the price of cotton was demoralized by the war. By the end of 1915 the prices of most farm products were still nearly on the plane of 1914, with crop production 7 per cent above ; and the total gross value of farm production was $10,775,000,000, a gain ot nearly a billion dollars over either 1913 or 1914. Then followed a rapid ascent of prices of farm products, and the weighted index for the prices of principal crops in December, 1916, was 36 per cent above 1915, so that, although the crop production was 14 per cent less, the total gross value of farm production was $13,406,000,000, or 23 per cent above 1915, itself the topmost year at that time. The performance of 1916 in farm wealth production, unprecedentedly large though it was, was a puny precursor of 1917. The price index number of the principal crops of this year is 33 per cent above 1916 and 111 per cent above 1915, and complicated with this enormous factor is a crop production that is 12 per cent above 1916. Hence it is that the grand aggregate of $13,611,000,000 is reached as the gross value of the farm crop production of 1917, and of as the total of all production. Caution is given by the department of agriculture against accepting tin-'- . total of $19,444,000,000 as the amount of the farmers' cash income, and also against regarding it as a net income. There are duplication and triplication of value and also omitted items ; cost of production must be considered, and certainly for 1916 and 1917 a soaring cost has complicated the problem. It is a gross income in a vague, undefinable, intangible sense, which cannot be reduced to a net income, nor net wealth production, by any process. fa-m- effective. Cottage Cheese Dishes. Our government food experts realize the need that all housewives learn to use many foods which have high nutritive value, but have been given but a small place in the family dietary. Cottage cheese is one of these wholesome dishes. There are some who have not learned to like this nutritious food, and so It mny be given in small doses, camouflaged in such a manner that in a short while even the most obstinate objector is fully immune. One way to introduce this into the diet of a biased member of the family is to make creamy cottage cheese and mix it with any good boiled dressing or a mayonnaise is especially good, using a spoonful of the dressing at a time, mixing well until thoroughly blended and enough of the dressing is added to cover the flavor of the cheese. This heaped over sliced tomatoes is perfectly delicious, and will never be discovered by mere man as containing anything but legitimate materials ordinarily found in the average salad dressing. Cottage Cheese Sausage. Take a cupful each .of cottage cheese, a cup of dry bread crumbs or rice or a mixture of both, two of butter or sweet fat, a fourth of a cup of chopped pecans, or peanuts, a half teaspoon of powdered eage or poultry dressing, one teaspoon of salt, a tablespoonful of milk, a third of a teaspoon of soda dissolved in the milk, a tablespoonful of finely minced onion. Cook the onion in the fat until tender but not brown, then mix all the Ingredients together and form into balls, roll in bread crumbs and brown in a frying pan in a little hot fat. Serve hot, garnished with parsley. table-spoonfu- ! Cheese Dressing.

The scratch mixture was fed sparingly, the hens being permitted to eat about as much of it as of the dry test the mash.

Leghorn pullets were used and it was found that it took 4.6 pounds of feed to produce a dozen pounds of grain was eggs. Fifty-tw- o consumed by each pullet annually, pounds and of this amount twenty-siwas from the scratch mixture. When wheat is omitted from the ration it is advisable to feed more beef scrap. Laying hens should have a good supply of protein, and the additional beef scrap supplies this essential in one of the cheapest forms. Cotton seed meal used to replace half the beef scrap in the mash has given good results on the government poultry farm and has had no bad effect on the quality of the eggs. Where cotton seed meal replaced all the beef scrap the results were unsatisfactory both in number and quality of eggs. Mussel meal has not proven as good a substitute for beef scrap as fish meal, which, to the amount of 25 per cent of the mash, has affected the flavor or the taste of the eggs. corn-meaar x Much in Little.

At that early day a journey to New Orleans was not an inconsiderable undertaking. Western Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arnansas were substantially a great wilderness, and means of communication between Adair county and New Orleans were so few, that it was farther away in that day than Fong Kong is from the present generation. Peter Buckingham had, before enlisting in this campaign, served a campaign in Capt. John Butler's company, and Berry James, who, also, served in Butler's company, is evidently the same as Berry Janes, who served in Paxton's company. There was a former citizen of the county who bore the name of Berry Janes, but no one can be remembered who was of the name of Berry James. James Duncan, Samuel Isaacs and John White had, also, seen service in the war as members of Capt. Shirley's company, and the latter had, also, served in Capt. Thomas Atkinson's company. The call for the men who composed the Kentucky contingent in the New Orleans campaign was made by Gov. Shelby on October 20, 1814, and Col. Mitch- isson's regiment, of which Capt. Paxton's company was a part, was organized on November 10, 1814, and marched to the banks of the Ohio river. Gov. Shelby had been assured that a quarter ma3ter of the United States Government would provide the necessary means of transportation, and blankets, tents, arms and ammunition Hence, the men departed from their homes, in most instances, provided with only one suit of clothing. The expedition was upon the point of failure, when Richard Taylor, of Frankfort, the quarter master of the Kentucky militia borrowed money sufficient to tide over the emergency. He bought such boats for the transportation of the men as he could, and succeeded in securing a pot and ket-t'- e for each company of eighty men. Many of the flat boats secured were old and rickity, and at the mouth of the Cumberland river the expedition was stopped for a week, when the men cut timbers and repaired the boats. There waB due the men an advance of two months pay before being required to leave the State, but this advance was not made and for a time after their arrival in Louisiana the men were compelled to subsist upon one quarter rations.

And for America and the other allies this: "Those nations which attacked peaceful Germany must pay all war charges in raw materials, ships, read' money and territorial concessions, leaving Germany with only five billions national debt." Tribute? Certainly not. Just a testimonial of appreciation of Germany's greatness and goodness a forty or fifty billion dollar testimonial.

Cravath's Grudge Justified Use More Hominy SeversJ Kinds of This Real American Food Benny Kauff Pulled Down His Long Fifty-Dollar Fly well-define- Americans ! Have we forgotten some of the best foods we once knew? Are you using hominy? Why not follow the example of our forefathers and use much of this good corn product? The first settlers of America learned from the Indians how to prepare the Indian corn for use. They removed the hulls from the dry grain by pounding it in a mortar with a pestle. The cracked corn they called by the Indian name ,:hominy." Hominy became one of their staple foods without which they would often have gone hungry. They cooked it in huge iron kettles hung over the blazing logs in the open fireplace. They also learned to remove the germ and hull from the corn by bolHng the grain with lye and then washing thoroughly. They sometimes called this product "hulled corn" but It is now more often called "lye hominy." There are several kinds of hominy on the market. If you do not know how good they are, try them and find out, advises the United States department of agriculture. The coarse hominy, samp, or pearl hominy. This is much like the hominy the pioneers used. The grain is split to remove the germ, hulled and polished by machinery. It is much used, particularly in the central and eastern states.

In many places it may be bought in bulk, and is also sold canned. It may be dried for future use or canned at home. All varieties of hominy are good nourishing food.

When a fellow virtually reaches right in a ball player's pocket and extracts 50 slmoleons therefrom, he's no friend of said ball player. Benny Kauff didn't do that exactly, but he might just as well have done it. The alleged misappropriation happened in Philadelphia, the other day. Cravath, some walloper when he gets hold of the ball, crashed the sphere to right center on this particular day and the ball was headed straight for a big sign. As is well known, the reward d Italy is queen of the air. England's defense of the sea with her Mammoth Navy; France's heroic infantry checking the first onrush of the Hun at the Marne and at Verdun j America's vast contribution of materials and money in the past and of fighting reserves in the future, are matched by Italy's contribution to the allied air navy, which will determine as much as any one factor our final victory over the Teutonic Powers. The general public, amazed at the marvelous performances of Italy's air fleet during Cadorna's drive over the Alps, at the record breaking feats of ResnatI, Laureatl and D'Annunzio and at the wonderful mechanical achievements of the great Caproni and Pomillo planes, still have little realization of the vast scope of Italy's achievement in aviation since she entered the war three years ago. In February, 1915, there were in all Italy only 100 aeronautical workmen. When that country entered the war a few weeks later she possessed altogether only SO flying machines and those mostly of the French type. But the Italy of poets and singers Is also the Italy of mechanical genius, of Marconi and Tesla, of Caproni and Pomillo. Seeing with a clear vision that the fate of civilization lay largely In the supremacy of the air, and particularly the need of air defense for her own long coast line, her statesmen set out to build n new industry from the ground up. They gathered together a vast number of men of energy and creative ability in order that they might bring their contributions of research, invention and technical knowledge to a development of those machines of offense and defense with which battles wmxoc.oonxireaa-rtftnrwinwi..ift guns. Italian designers by synchronizing propeller revolutions with machine gun Are have placed machine guns on planes that fire GOO shots a minute through the propellers, which make 1,200 revolutions a minute, the calculation being such that no shots strike the propeller one shot passing between the blades with every two turns of the propeller. In addition to the machine guns a multitude of bomb throwing, position finding and other devices of great utility in battle and in bombardments have been perfected by Italian genius. Italy has developed the best type of machine for each class of war work. Those for night bombardment are the Caproni biplane of 450 and COO II. P. and the Caproni triplane of GoO H. P. These planes have an average speed of about 100 miles au hour and carry a large load of bombs. For day bombardment one of their most efficient machines is the Sia type, with one engine of 700 H. P., which develops an average speed of 125 miles an hour and has a capacity for 700 pounds of rapid-firin- g INSURANCE "The Service Agency.

The hymn known by its first line as Blest Be the Tie That Binds" was written by Rev. Dr. John Fawcett, an English Baptist preacher, who was born In 1740 and died in 1817. He was noted as a religious worker and wrote many other good hymns, but none so famous and popular as this one, which has been used by different denominations. Tradition says that the author wrote It under a sort of religious inspiration which made him refuse to exchange the pastorate of a small provincial church for that of a strong and rich one in London. The hymn has been sung on many historical occasions as peculiarly expressive of Christian fellowship. tin cans and the efforts the government Is making to conserve them. During the early days of last summer's campaign for the preservation of perishable fruits and vegetables, government experts tested the possibility of utilizing once used tin cans, but investigation proved the advisability of abandoning this plan in favor of "detinning" process, whereby most of the steel and tin is recovered for further use in manufacture. The government is now persuading factory owners to substitute paper or fiber containers for all articles heretofore put up in tin. This, it is expected, will to a certain extent offset the tin cans shipped to the army in France. The balance of the loss will be made up by salvaging used cans. Leslie's. le Tons of Free Seed Sent by Government the Past Spring. To comparatively few of us has it ever occurred that the United States government is one of the world's largest buyers of garden and flower seed. The few' ounces of seed carried to us by the postman give no impression of the acres upon acres of land devoted to their propagation, or the care taken in determining their fitness for planting. But these small envelopes represent tens of thousands of pounds of the best seed procurable. It is illuminating to know that the aggregate weight of the free seed circulated from Washington this spring amounted to 499.06 tons, or, for the sake of juggling figures, 15,969,920 ounces. Of this amount it is also interesting to know, corn seed predominated, 350,000 pounds of it being mailed to various sections of the country. Machines are used which automatically proportion the seed by weight, fill the Individual packages and seal them. popular Mechanics Magazine are being fought today. As a result Italian aviation has established a new record in the history of industry. A New Born Industry. To the immense and famous Italian industrial centers, already strongly organized and active In general automobile construction, was added the new industry of aeroplane construction. As a result Italy today has over 40,000 experienced workmen in this field, and her government possesses over 3,000 military and naval planes and is supplying others to her allies by the hundreds. Many of the planes America has sent to the French front were made in Italy, and Italian planes are being shipped here for the training of our aviators. Such firms a? Fiat have accomplished marvelous 'suits In a short time. This concern turned out a 700 H. P. aerial engine, and other firms developed successful engines of 160, 200 H. P., etc. The big Pomilio plant was erected In three months' time. Today there are more than 25 aeroplane factories in Italy, and that country has the distinction of producing the fastest aeroplane In the world, the fastest seaplane, the largest flying machine and the best climber. A great secret of Italy's success was the large and powerful engines she had already perfected in her automobile industry. These engines, developing from 500 to 700 H. P. and later 900 H.

Giovanni Caproni, creator of the famous Caproni machine, Is planning to build after the war a flier carrying 50 passengers, with which he expects to cross the Atlantic in 4S hours. In fact, he had hopes at one time of establishing during the latter part of this year a Paris to Washington mail route, Hying by way of Portugal, the Azores, Newfoundland and New York City. The longest leg of this trip over water is 1,195 miles, which, he says, is well within the range of the present Caproni machine. It would be a striking repetition of history if the nation which gave us Columbus, the first man to sail to the new world by water, should also furnish the first to follow that route by air.

Paul Revere's ride and the battles of Lexington and Concord in April, 1775, memorable as those events are as the forerunners of the great conflict, failed to arouse any widespread enthusiasm for Independence. It is even significant to note that just a year before the Declaration of Independence was unanimously approved by all of the thirteen colonies the Continental congress that had appointed Washington commander in chief of the army, drew up, July G, 1775, a declaration of the causes for taking up arms In which it was said : We mean not to dissolve that union which has so long and so happily subsisted between us and which we sincerely wish to see restored.

Moith Carolina n, ILed Colonies in I Freedom's Fight . Even Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence, two months after the battle of Bunker Hill wrote that he was "looking with fondness toward a reconciliation with Great Britain." A few leaders like Benjamin Franklin, Samuel and John Adams and Patrick Henry had felt at a comparatively early date that n break was inevitable. The historic declaration of the citizens of Mecklenburg county, North Carolina, in May, 1775, was one of several local events indicating that public opinion was tending toward independence, but not until the appearance of Thomas Paine's stirring pamphlet, "Common Sense," early in January, 1776, was there any appreciable public sentiment in its favor. In the plain language of the day it presented the facts so simply that all could understand. This "phenomenon," as John Adams styled Paine, suddenly found himself transformed from obscurity to fame. The Pennsylvania legislature vpted him $2,500, and a Southern legis far-sight- the whole to discuss the resolutions. The delegates from Pennsylvania, New York and one or two other colonies objected on the ground that the middle colonies were not yet ready for so radical a step, although personally expressing a friendly attitude. Delegates Hesitated. Unanimous action by all the colonies on so momentous a question was regarded by congress as of paramount importance. Some of the delegates had not been instructed to go so far as voting for independence, New York and New Jersey being among them. The majority had been authorized to take any action that might be deemed wise, Virginia having gone so far as actually to instruct her delegates to propose p. declaration of independence to congress, and Richard Henry Lee was simply obeying the legislative voice of his colony when he presented his resolutions. June 10 congress postponed final consideration for three weeks, and on the following day appointed a committee of five to draw up the declaration. Richard Henry Lee, as the proposer of the plan, would surely have been on the committee and, possibly, its chairman, had he not in the meantime been hurriedly summoned home by the illness of his wife. But for that Lee might have been the author of the declaration instead of his younger Virginia colleague, Thomas Jefferson, then but thirty-thre- e years old. Jefferson had brought to congress the reputation for wielding a facile pen, and in the balloting for the committee he received a majority of votes and became its chairman. The others were John Adams of Massachusetts, Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania, Roger Sherman of Connecticut and Robert R. Livingston of New York. Honor Given Jefferson. How did Jefferson come to be selected to write the Declaration, "the one American state paper, as has been said, that has reached to supreme distinction in the world and that seems likely to last as long as American civilization lasts"? 'The most interesting account is given by John Adams, who says that he and Thomas Jefferson were designated by the committee to prepare the rough minutes in a proper form. Mr. Jefferson first proposed that Adams prepare the draft of the Declaration. Adams declined, giving, as he says in his autobiography, the following reasons: (1) That he was a Virginian and I a Massachusettenslan. (2) That he was a Southern man and I a Northern one. (3) That I had been so obnoxious for my early and constant zeal in promoting the measure that every draft of mine would undergo a more severe scrutiny and criticism In congress than one of his composition. (4) And lastly, and that would be reason enough If there were no other, I had a great opinion of the elegance of his pen and none at all of my own. I therefore insisted that no hesitation should be made on his part. He accordingly took the minutes and in a day or two produced to me his draft. Instructed to vote in Its favor, on July 4, which thenceforth became the recognized birthday of the new nation. The old bell ringer of Philadelphia, who had been patiently waiting for the news in the steeple of the historic statehouse, was the. first to peal out the message of American independence on the bell ever since honored as the Liberty Bell. No longer was there any doubt that public opinion was ready for the step, for, as the news spread, It was everywhere received with exultation. Word came to George Washington July 9, at his headquarters in New York, that the Declaration was ratified, and It was at once read to the soldiers and citizens. On the same day the New York asaeci'jjy, in session at White Plains, gave its formal vote for independence, and the thirteen colonies were then united in their common cause. John Hancock, president of the congress, was the only member who signed the declaration on July 4. An engrossed copy on parchment was ordered for all the delegates to sign. This was completed August 2 and signed by 54 -- wvvvsfs'iasv fS3?v swP m: Si ?s&ra &. r" - .lc392 vs38& ss&sm John Adams. delegates. Two others signed later, Thomas McKean of Delaware, who was absent with his regiment in August, and Matthew Thornton of New Hampshire, who was not elected to congress until the fall, but was permitted to sign the document in November, making the total number of the famous "signers'" 56. The Two Most Famous Signers. Of all the signers, Jefferson and Adams bear a deeper personal relation, to the declaration than any others. Adams was its most vigorous supporter..,, in congress and Jefferson bears Ttesti-- S mony to his valuable aid. In after years both received the highest honors that the citizens could bestow. They were permitted to witness the growth, of their country for half a century, from the first Independence day. The day of their death, July- 4, 1826, was the fiftieth anniversary of the memorable Fourth of July. It was the most remarkable coincidence ever recorded in American history. Jefferson was eighty-thre- e years old and John Adams ninety-on- e years. The 56 signers were distributed among the 13 states in the following proportion: Pennsylvania, 9; Virginia, 7; Massachusetts, 5; New Jersey, 5; Connecticut 4; Maryland, 4; New York, 4; South Carolina, 4; New Hampshire, 3; Delaware, 3; Georgia, 3; North Carolina, 3; Rhode Island, 2.

Things moved rapidly In the colonies after that, and Richard Henry Lee of Virginia rose in the Continental congress at Philadelphia, June 7, 1776, and presented his famous resolutions which led to the Declaration of Independence. The resolutions, in Lee's handwriting, and now one of the treasured papers in the library of congress, were: Resolved, "JSB -- &2zz them-vsaiv- es That these United Colonies are and of right ought to be free and Independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is and ought to be totally dissolved; That It Is expedient forthwith to take the most effectual measures for forming foreign alliances; That a plan of confederation be prepared and transmitted to the respective colonies for their consideration and approbation. -- Ci at-Phll- a- Here, In fact, was the Declaration of Independence in a nutshell, proposed by one of the most eminent men of the most Influential colony at that time and promptly seconded by John Adams of Massachusetts. It was deem-g- d wise to order the secretary, to omit their names from the journal. The next day congress went into a committee of Jefferson says that the entire committee urged him to make the draft. He showed it first to Franklin and Adams "because they were the two members of whose judgments and amendments I wished most to have the benefit" They made a few minor alterations in their handwriting. This original draft was given by Jefferson to Richard "Henry Lee, the dean of the Virginia delegation, and in 1825 his grandson presented it to the American Philosophical society of Philadelphia. Jefferson, having made another copy, with the changes suggested, presented it to the committee, which reported it unaltered to congress. July 1 Philadelphia was on the qui vlve of expectation, and contemporary accounts have left us a stirring picture of the eager ness with which the citizens awaited definite news of the most Important act which the colonists had been called upon to decide in the long chain of disputes with the mother country. On the following day, when the formal vote of congress was taken, the resolutions were approved by twelve col-- " onles all except New York. The original colonies, therefore, became the United States of America on July 2, 1776. The next two days were spent in discussing the draft of the Declaration as drawn by Jefferson. The debate 'was animated, but when it was all 'over the draft was adopted with surprisingly few changes, a tribute to the ability with which the author had pressed to the world the causes which had made it necessary for "one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another." simile. - French People Our True Friends.
