Henco, under tho burning words of eloquent men and the piercing rays of the sun and stinging ot Insects, a decrco ot liberty was born. The voto on tho declaration was taken at about 2 o'clock on the afternoon of Thursday, and, whllo It was an Intensely warm day for Philadelphia, It certainly waa, politically speaking, a cold, clammy day for London. Whllo the document was not signed on July 4, It hnd the same moral and exocutlve effect, since tho delegates voted for the action and ordered It engrossed on parchment. On August 2 the sheepskin copy was presented, and all the Incidents relative to the signing, together with the several comments ot members, bear on the sosslons ot August 2, when all savo two members subscribed their names to tho pronouncement that "We hold these truths to bo that all men aro created equal." It was largely due to trivial statements that tho delegates wero aroused to the spirit of unity, and these apparent remarks led tho mombers to cheerfully subscribe their names Tho to a warrant of death or Imprisonment. humor of Charles Carroll needs to bo corrected. In tho past we haro been told that when Charles Carroll ot Maryland stepped up to sign his name to the engrossed document he said: "The Urltlsh will bo looking for all ot us, and so they may have no trouble In finding me I will put down my address," and ho signed, Charles Carroll ot Carrollton. Tradition has It that the audlenco ot delegatea laughed heartily, and ono gentleman spoke out loudly, "Thero goes some millions ot property." To Indicate that this very wealthy colonist was not at all times at ease financially, the following letter, written by him two years before tho declaration waa signed, attests. "I must have the money, and speedily, for I am quite out ot cash. However, a delay ot a few days will make no great difference," This demonstrates the theory that millionaires too otton get Into closo financial quarters. Mr. Carroll demonstrated his fearless, patriots tmpulao prior to signing when be In '75 wrote to a member ot parliament tlleso sting-lut, d this only In- .rt Carroll was last, to yield to tho scythe ot death, on November 14, 1832, age 96. Even tho anxiety ot the old gentleman who vdi to rlne the bell In the tower of the state house hurried the passing of the declaration, slnco he had stationed below his little grandson, who kept impatiently asking the delegates about the declaration. And when the glad moment had arrived the lad cried forth the tidings, "Grandpa, ring the bell! Vie aro free!" Hence, from the voice of a child came the proclamation ot liberty.

Dedication of Fairvieu Homp of lefferson Dauis and women of the South, and submitted himself to his surroundings with a dignity and splendor of manner that at least touched with tenderness and undying love the hearts of his countrymen. No breath of criti cism dare assail the conduct of Mr. Davis during this awful ordeal of imprisonment. Threatened with prosecution for treason, denied his liberty, with limited opportunities to prepare for his defense, light was none the less slowly reaching into the cell where sat the beloved PresiGood and dent of the Confederacy. true men throughout the nation realized that the Incarceration of Mr. Davis, with all its attendant circumstances, was a political crime, and that it was a discredit to the people of the greatest nation upon which the sun ever shown. It took two years for public sentiment to right itself, for the law of love to overcome the law of hate and passion. ' At last the men who had opposed him became his bondsmen, and after two years of confinement he again s,w the light of the sun and breathed air that did not come through prison bars. In these dreadful hours of confinement he became a thousand times dearer to his people, and their love and gratitude went out to him in boundless measure and with resistless force. Twenty years have passed since he died and the limelight of history has only brightened every spot in his pure, unsullied life. He stoo'd in suffering humiliation and imprisonment for the South ; its head its chief, He bore in his its representative. body and soul the deepest anguish for his people. Now that he is gone and men may review the past and weigh and judge his life, his conduct and his motive, slowly, but surely and irresistibly, Jefferson Davis is coming to his own. As he stood for the South, the South will stand for him and all his life and suffering implied, and the South will see that he shall be understood and appreciated and no shadow shall darken his fame,- - and that no shall scar the splendor of his character and the glory of his transcendent heroism in the dark days of his humiliation. We are here this day upon a holy mission, one of peace and good will, and with the eyes of our nation turned to Fairview, and all men rejoicing that the South is doing honor to Jefferson Davis. No American history will be just that does not recognize in him a great and good man. Some say that he was a misguided leader and that he judged wrongly in the conflict. Let it be answered as an eternal truth that he settled every Issue and obligation of duty according to the lights before him, that he brought to the solution of every confronting problem a pure heart and an honest desire to know the truth and to do the right, and a courageous willingness to follow wherever honor and fidelity pointed the way. Never did he falter, never did he hesitate when manhood and patriotHe knew ism called to action. Uuucluilril oil liut luiuo ', rf (he following au fnl.

He never hesitated in the discharge of all that the hour demanded, and he refused his countrymen nothing that his genius and his courage could give. There were times when Mr. Davis might have had peace. There are those who tell us that when near the end Mr. Lincoln said, "Write union at the top, and fill in the balance as you please," but it must not be forgotten that Mr. Davis was at the head of the Confederacy ; that he had been placed there by his people who had staked their lives, their liberty and their all on success, and that no peace was possible or proper which did not come through the practical annihilation of armies of the South. The men and women of the South, who had made such tremendous sacrifices in their efforts to maintain a nation's life, would never have understood or appreciated the conditions which enforced submission. The President of the Confederacy, day by day, saw and felt the diminishing power of the Confederate pulse beat. He knew that it was dying slowly, surely, but he dared not relax his efforts ; and thus surrounded by circumstances he was powerless to change, he beheld his people bravely struggling on in the throes of anguish and death, while he stood with his great and loving heart unable to allay a single pang or change the course ot destiny. When the Confederacy had passed the period where success was no longer, when the struggle was wasting the energies and lives of a nation dearer to him than his own, he stood undismayed, but no craven spirit of fear touched his brave brave heart, and he exhibited the highest and noblest courage that ever filled a human breast as he battled on without hope, aod yet without fear, In a dark cell at Fortress Monroe, for twenty-fou- r weary and wasting months, with scarcely a ray of sunshine, with few to minister to his wants or cheer his,splrits, he sat and thought and remembered and suffered for the Southern people. With the conditions of captivity steadily ravaging his energies and undermining his constitution, here viewed the tragedy and realized that he had endured all this for the men nri i ( ft ii nnltnri lift i 1c will go sounding down the ages as the sweetest evangel of I t if.' s an oniv maicef tmm peace that ever started upon an people.

These words are not spoken to awaken a single emotion of prejudice or ill wllh they are only spoken to emphasize the duty of the South to the memory of Mr. Davis.

A dispatch, from Guthrie, Okla., says: A curious relic has been brought to the attention of the State n Agricultural and Industrial during their visit to Erick. It is a small stone, triangular in shape, probably 4 inches wide at its widest part, six inches long and half an inch thick, bearing on one side the inscription. "Held captive by the Indians. Henry Van Cluer, of 1754." The London. Eng., reverse side bears the square and compass and other Masonic emblems together with representations of a coffin and open grave, presumably representing the captive's idea of his own fate.

In the mountain counties of Kentucky it is a common experience to find old men who have lived all their uneventful lives without having caught a glimpse of a locomotive. Is it any wonder that such a condition of affairs breeds illiteracy? We hang our heads in shame wben we find Kentucky classed as forty-secon- d in illiteracy, when the white population alone is considered. This is very largely the result of the bad roads of the State, which make school-goin- g in the sparsely settled impossible. practically districts Where good roads exist, as in the Bluegrass counties, the illiteracy problem is practically eliminated. Culture and refinement follow, as the sccial bent of the community is encouraged. The coming together of the youths of the mountains in long terms for study will follow immediately with the building of good roads, and no other condition will make this possible. It is idle talk about doing away with the prevailing condition of the things until w: have gotten real difficulty, which is the source of it ill. Fill the school houses for eight or nine months in the year with the receptive mountain boys and girls, and keep repeating this operation for a few years and the characteristics for which we criticise their elders will soon disappear.

Whether Atkins went alono or In company to the Casa Fucrte tho detective could only surmlso. Ho couldn't tell whether his object would be mero blackmail, or robbery of the cipher, or aisusilnatlon. I'erhaps he found tho Insensible man In the patio and was tempted by the grisly opportunity; victim and weapon both absolutely to his hand; for It was established that the dagger had been shown Tracy by Mercer as a curio, and left on tho stone bench. l'crhapa he had not found tho dagger, but had his own mean to make an end of his enemy and his own terror Birdsall believed that lie had accomplices, or at least one accomplice, with him. Ho conceived that they had lain In ambush watching until thoy saw Klto go away. Then an entry had been made. "Most like," Birdsall concluded, "he Jest flung that dacger away for you (oiks to find and suspect tho domestics, say Klto, 'cause he was away." Hut this was not all that Birdsall had to report. Ho had traced Atkins to the haunts of certain unsavory Kalians; he had struck tho trail. In fine. To be sure.

Yet the ths CHAPTER XVII. Continued. "No," murmured Miss Smith meekly,, with a ltttlo twinkle of her eye; did that; ho hid them. Hpw ridiculous of me to get In such a fright! But you know how Cary hated Mr, Keatcham: and you no, you don't know tho lengths that such a temperament as his will go. I did another silly thing; I found a dagger, one of those Moorish stilettoes that hang In tho library; It was lying In tho door way. "When no one was looking I hid it and carried It off. I stuck it in ono of the flower beds; I stuck It In 1 the ferns; I have stuck that wretched thing all over this yard. I didn't dare carry it back and put it in the empty place with tho others because some one might have noticed tho place. And I didn't dare say anything to Cary; I was right miserable." "So was I," said tho colonel, "think' lng you were trying to protect the murderer. But do you know what I had sense to do?" "Go to Mrs. Winter? Oh, I wanted to!" "Exactly; and do you know what that dead game sport said to me? She laid she found those washed and ironed cuffs and trousers neatly cleaned with mllka what's mllka? and the mllka cleaned the spots so much cleaner than the rest that she had her own suspicions started. But says she: Not belne a plumb idiot, I went straight to Cary and he told me the " whole story "Which was like your story?" "Very near.

Volla tout!" "Do you think" her voice sank lower; she glanced over her shoulder "do you reckon Atkins had anything to do with that train robbery? Was It a mere pretext to give a chance to murder Mr. Keatcham, fixing' the blame on ordinary bandits?" "By Jove! it might be." "I don't supposo we shall ever know. But, Col. Winter, do you mind explaining to me Just what Brother Cary's scheme with Mr. Keatcham was? Mrs. Winter told me you "She told me," mused tho colonel, "Birdsall and I: wo were here. In tho patio; we, my dear Miss Janet, You had on n were tho Danger! silk dress and you were holding a wire clipper In ypur hand." "Yes, sir, I saw it ,on tho grais ,;. and picked It up." She laughed a little; but directly her checks reddened. "What must you have thought of me!" sho murmured under her breath; and bit the Hp that, would hayo quivered. "I should like to tell you dear," he answered, "if you will O Lord, forgive young men for living! If they are not all coming back to ask me to sing!

Aunt Rebecca back In the armchair, faintly smiling, while the old, old words that thousands of lovers havo thrilled with pain and hopes' and dreams beyond their own power of speech and offered to their sweethearts, rose, winged by the eternal brown-checked ' noisome burrows. "Yes," sighed tho colonel, stretching out hi arms, with a resonant breath of relief, "we're out of the maxo; all we have to do now Is to keep from being killed. Which Isn't such a plain proposition tn 'Frisco as In Massachusetts! But I reckon wo can tackle It' And then then, my darling, I "I Should Like to Tsll Yau Dssr," H Answered, "If You Will- - longing: , "Y si to tnueve a lastlma ml eterno ' ' padecer, mujer!

"Shall I?" said the colonel, his volco was careless enough, but not so the eyes which looked up at Janet Smith. "Not please," said she. I think Mr. Keatcham is expecting mo to read to him a little. Good night. Thank you, Col. Winter." She was on her feet as she spoke; nnd Winter did not try to detain her; he had held her hand; and he had felt Its shy pressure and caught a fleeting, frightened, very beautiful glance. Ills dark faco paled with the Intensity of his emotion. Janet moved away, quiet ly and lightly, with no break In her composuro; but as she passed Mrs, Winter sho bent and kissed her. And when Archlo would have run after her a dellcato Jeweled hand was laid on laddlo; his arm, "Not want you to help mo down tho steps, With her hand on the boy's sbouldor she camo up to Rupert, and Inclined her bandsomo head In Janet's direc tion. "I think, by rights, that kiss be longed to you, mon enfant," said she, t, Como te amo, amamo, Smith blushed over his awkward jocosencss. Yet, tho next moment he extended his hand with his formal, courtesy and took Miss Janet's shapely, firm fingers In his own lean and nervous grasp. "Allow me to offer you both my sincere congratulations," began he, and halted, his eyes, which seemed so Incurious but wero so keen, traveling from the woman's confusion to tho man's. "I beg your pardon; I understood Archie who was here, gava me to understandand I heard you singing; you will hardly bollovo It, but years ago I sang that to my wife." "So far as I am concerned. It Is settled," said tho colonel steadily. Janet lifted her sweet eyes and sent one glance as fleeting and light as the flash of a bird's wing. "I I reckon It Is settled," murmured she; but Immediately sho was the nurse again. "Mr. Koatcham, you aro staying awako much too late. Hero Is Colvln, who will see to anything you want. Good night." It was then that Mr. Keatcham had taken tho colonel's breath away by kissing Janet's hand; after which he shook bands with tho colonel with a strange new cordiality, and watched them both go away together with a look on his gaunt face unlike any known to Colvln. Only three minutes In the hall, with other-generatio- sentences was a declaration of trust In Miss Smith. "I certainly went off at half-cocthere," said he, amiably; "and Just because she was so awful nice I felt obliged to suspect her; but I'vo cot tho real dog that killed the sheep this tlmo; It's suro tho real Red Wull!" It appeared that ho had, of a verity, been usefully busy. He had secured the mochantc who had given Atklus a plan of tho secret passages of Casa Fuerto. He bad found the policeman who had arrested Tracy (ho swore because ho was going too fast) and the magistrate who had fined him; and not only that, ho had captured tho policeman, a genuine officer, not a criminal In disguise, who had been Atkins' Instrument In kidnaping Archie. This man, whom Birdsall know how to terrify completely, had confessed that It wns purely by chance that Atkins had seen tho boy, left outsldo In tho motor car. Atkins, so ho said, had protended that the boy was a tool of somo enemies of Keatcham's, whoso secretary he was, trading, not for tho only tlmo, on his past position. In reality, Bird-sai- l had como to believe Atkins knew that Keatcham was employing Mercer In his place. "I can't absolutely put my finger on his Information," said Blrdiall; "but I suspect Mrs, Melvlllo Winter; I know sho was talking to him, for ono of my mon saw hor.Tho lady meant no barm, but sho's ono of tho kind that Is always slamming the detectives and being took In by the rascals." He argued that Mrs. Winter and Miss Smith knew where the boy was; for somo reason thoy had let him go and wore pretending not to know where he was. "Ain't that so?" the detectlvo appealed to Aunt Rebecca, who merely smiled, saying: "You're a wonder, Mr. Birdsall!" According to Blrdsall'a theory, Atkins was puzzled by Archie's part In the affair. But ho bolloved could he find the boy's present hosts he would And Edwin Keatcham. It would not be the , fir it time Keatcham had hidden the better to spin his web for the trapping of his rivals. That Mercer was with his employer tho had no manner of doubt, any more than ho doubted that Mercor'a schome had been to oust htm and to build his own fortunes on Atkins He ruin. knew both Tracy and young Arnold very well by sight. When he couldn't frighten Archie Into tolling anything, probably ho went back to his first plan of shadowing tbo Winter jiarly at the Palace. He must havo seen Tracy here. He penetrated his disguise. ("He's as sharp a the dovtl, I tell you, Colonel.") Ho either followed him himself or had him followed; and ho hoard about the telephone. ("Somebody harking .In the next room, most likely.") Knowing Tracy' Intimacy with Arnold, It was not hard for so cluyr and subtle a mind ns Atkins' to Jump to tho conclusion and test It In tho nearest telephone book.

Winter would havo said that he was too old a man to stay awake all night, when ho had a normal temperature; yut he saw tho etars como out and the stars fade on that fateful April night. He entered his room at tho hour when midnight brushes the pale skirts of dawn and misguided cocks are vocifer ating their oxlstenco to an Indifferent world, Beforo he came thero had been a long council with Mercer and his aunt. Mercer, who bad been success ful In his mission, had barely seen his chief for a moment beforo a gentle but Imperious nurse ordered him away. Winter caught a quei, abrupt laugh from tho financier.

"See you are as obedient as I am when your tlmo comes," ho chuckled; and he chuckled again whiu both the rldUz xu4 Mist the moon through tho orchod window; and his arm about her and tho fragrance of her loosoncd hair against his cheek and her voice stirring his heartstrings with an exquisite pang,.

In the first place, In building a road, says a writer in the Country Gentleman, get, as far as possible, local contractors. The present system of state road building brings a contractor from somewhere else who may often do a bad Job and vanish. No one follows him, and the people may rage all they please in vain. A local man will take more pride in bis job and be more subject .to correction if he doesn't. In the eecoad place. Instead of appropriating a fixed sum for building a road, let the amount be left to the discretion of the officer in chargo, who shall estimate the cost of such a proposed road. Then let the contractors bid oa the bast of the percentage of prom for which they are willing to undertake this work. Now, when a certain sura Is appropriated, I notice that It Is sure to be spent; the contractors' bids Just dodge under the total, and the difference Is eaten up by extra work. I iMlleve the other system would give more economical results.
