THE EAGLE SCREAMS the Ration's Birthday Most Pleasantly and Appropriately Observed In Glenwood By A Glorious Celebration. Energy mid Enterprise Of Our Citizens in Prepnring the Program Entirely Successful. feople From All Parts of the Comity TO Attendance nnd A General Good Time Enjoyed By All. THE DAY IN DKTAIL. Another Fonrtb of July hns oome Bnd gone and with it the customary ntuoiint a! enthusiasm, noise and fireworks. The dny previous the outlook for tbe celebration was decidedly dubious owing to tbe rainy and threatening weather §*«t in dne time the clouds clenred BWBy fMtct Ht the appointed time the feetivitits »f the diiy began. Slothing of especial interest truus- ginsfl during the forenoon until the fjtka* Tor the grand parade. This occnr- Beo1»t 10:30 and was intensely interesting. It wne formed in the north part of town and led by Mayor Record. The ionise was down Walnut street to the aortb west corner of the square, then turning east and circling the square. After the rest of the procession had passed by a crowd of rongh riders made •evera! tours of the square on their fiery steeds, filling tbe air with blood curdling jells and firing their six shooters. A Jar^e baud of Indians, composed mostly of the large boys from tbe Institution, then gave a war dance much to the amusement of the spectators. The other (features of the parade were the famous Kobo band, Battleship Olympia, Queen Mills lioat, baud of toodlee, also a number of well prepared advertising wagons and displays. Taken altogether the !>arade reflected uo lit tie,credit on the committee in charge of this part of tbe program. The orator of the day was Judge H. JE. Deemer of Iowa's supreme court. After a brief introductory talk by Mr. E. B. Woodruff which was full of good lense and sound points the speaker of tbe day took the floor. In an able and scholarly address he recited briefly the purpose for which the people bad that day assembled. After touching upon a tew foots in our early history he proceeded lo draw a few timely conclusions therefrom. Our forefathers, the Judge be of their labors when they had secured independence. They builded far better than the most visionary hod lioped. The speaker then proceeded to trace the different acquisitions of ter- uitory mode by Uncle Sam from the time the original 13 states were finally made froe. As the Judge is a ripe his- ioricnl student he was able to do this in a most entertaining manner. Today we have the greatest nation on which the ann ever shown; if the future is as full of promise as the past has been of real- isation the ultimate end to be attained »ill be glorious iudeed. But here is where, our danger lies. The growth which has been so rapid and development which has been so astonishing is tfter all a material growth largely and material development has been made too much at tbe expense of the moral and fcithetical. Such development is one aided aud uot conducive to complete *ud symmetrical national growth or to long national existence. Judge Deemer concluded bis address with a reference to the war in the Philippines. It is needless to say that the Judge is too large hearted and right aninded to wink at the course this oouu- Jry is pursuing in regard to these islands. Try as skilfully aa he could it was impossible for him to cjuoeal the disgust and shame which he felt over the useless brutal and bloody war the American government is waging at the present time with the Filipinos. What, he asked was the purpose of this war? He frankly admitted that he did not know. He named over half a dozen hypothetical ends which the war might laave subserved but as far a» could be told from his talk be did uot subscribe -to any of them. Tbe conclusion of the Judge's address waa chiefly eloquent for * good rnuty things which he didn't say. Ik didn't require a listener of extraordiu ary intelligence to grasp with readiness tbe significance of tbe many things •Lion tbe speaker so eloquently left out Tbe nest attraction after tbe speech •as the balloon ascension. This was billed for 5 o'clock but owing to provoking aud unavoidable delays it was not ' mntil 7 tbat tbe aeronaut was ready for t his ascent. He took up Tailor Sohulliau's •• dtog with him and after getting up per\ baps a quarter of a mile from tbe earth Vie let the canine down in a paiacbute. H« tventually alighted himself site aud *qand making an atceiit that was satis- -factory in every particular.

It was well gotten up and mnde au exceptionally striking appearance. Tbe Modern Woodman Lodge was well represented in the parade. Besides having a float the members of tbe lodge were out in full uniform and gave a number of well executed drills. Of course the usual number of baby racks, cane racks, etc , were in evidence, So customary bave they become that they are as important a factor in tbe successful celebration as is red lemonade and peanuts. An unusually large number of stands were in operation this year. So many were there in fact that very few of them mode more tbnu expenses. Counting them all there were fully twenty-five around the square. Sam Finkensteiu our enterprising fruit vendor sold 25 oases of hop ale which means GOO bottles to Olenwood's hot nnd thirsty citizens. It kept Sam nnd half a doz«n assistants busy dishing out this foamy beverage to his numerous customers. The bicycle and foot races did not come off owing to an insufficient number of entries being mnde for them. However there were plenty of other amusements to interest the crowd during tbe time on the program planned to be devoted to these attractions. John Robinson who represented Uncle Sam in the parade, bad what might have proven a serious mishap just when the procession started. He was sitting on the back of the baud wagon and the sudden start of tbe vehicle caused him to lose his balance, throwing him backward, to the ground. He fell squarely on the back of his neck and it is wonderf u 1 how he got out alive. Aside from get ting his high hat telescoped and bis false face dislocated he was uninjured. This was once when it came in real handy to bave a rubber neck. The dance at tbe Armory was perhaps the biggest affair of the kind ever held there. Tbe dance commenced shortly after dinner aud continued on into tbe wee small hours of tbe morning. Tbe best of order prevailed and tbe finest of music was dispensed. Everybody had a good time and there seems to be no kicks coming from anybody who was there or who wasn't there. The boys who were managing it took in over $80 which was practically all profit. Tbe Fourth of July was s grand success surely as far as they were concerned. The managers at the Armory ^t short changed" outo^jf3.50 by a smJRh j*° r ' • gentleman who presented himself ning. He pnt down a 35 bill on the table in front of the cashier aud demand ed tbd change. Then he seemed suddenly to change his mind and picked the bill up again saying he could make the change himself 1 After fumbling around in bis pocket a little while he said he guessed he didn't have tbe change and laid tbe bill down again. The cashier banded him $1 50 iu change aud he stepped out and kept stepping so lively that when Marshal Mo&fillen went to look for him after tbe mistake (?) haJ been discovered, he was safe out of town. He has never turned up yet and the dance management is still short the 84 50. mSCOVKKED BY A AVOAIAN. Another great discovery has been made, aud that too, by a lt»dy in this country. "Disease fastened his clutches upon her and for seven years she withstood its severest tests, but her vital organs were undetermined and death seemed immenent. For three months she coughed incessantly and could not sleep. She finally discovered a way to recovery, by purchasing of us a bottle of Dr. Kings New Discovery for Con sumption, aud was so much relieved on taking first dose that she slept all night; and with two bottles has been absolutely cured. Her uame is Mrs. Luther Lntz." Thus writes W. C. Hamnick & Co. of Shelby, N. C. Trial bottles free at Skillicoru's Drug Store. Regular size 50c aud 81. Every bottle gnaran teed.

About 75 teachers took part —that is they wrote down answers but nly a small portion of those bnd the onrage to band their papers in. There were just eleven nil told who handed in inpers which wns an astonishingly small umber for an Institute that enrolled 61 teachers. Miss Lydia A. Moon was he successful contestant missing but 9 nthors in I bo list of 100 books and joerns submitted. Miss Ellen J. Wing f Malvern answered the next largest lumber correctly missing but 20, but as bo had won the first prize in the spell- ug contest she was barred out of this ud tbe second prize given to Reuben King who missed 21 authors. The papers handed in were not very red! table and especially so since the Sditor of tbe TBIBUNE in giving out the ist had rendered material assistance to hose contesting by giving numerous lints nnd suggestions tbat should have nnbled those who were at nil versed in iterature to bave identified fully half be authors in tbe list. Strange as it mny poem there wasn't a teacher in tbe ustitute who knew who was tbe nuthor f eo common a booh as Kidd's "Social Evolution" and only one who knew who wrote "Man's Place in Nature" and tbe 'Mysteries of Udolpbo."

The TRIBUNE'S spelling contest cam* off BB per announcement fast Thursday afternoon iu (he high school building. About 100 teachers participated in the contest nnd it proved n most interesting performance from stnrt to finish. The list of words was not quite so difficult ns those spelled nt the teachers' contest lust February bnt the percentage of poor spelling was greater because there were far more and fnr younger teachers who ptirticipnted iu it this time. Indeed there were twice ns many this time as there were in February. Miss Ellen J. Wing won first prize missing the phe nomennlly low number of five while Mrs. Emma Young came out second best having missed eleven. There were two gentlemen not teachers and consequently not eligible contestants who bauded in papers tbat were surprisingly creditable. One of these was Mr. 0. B. Christy of Malvern who only missed teu iu the list aud the other was Prof. J. J. MoMabon one of the Institute instructors who missed twelve. The words oftenest missed were druukeuuesp, cnnebrake, woolliest, lab oratory, restaurant, ineffable, chaperon, bizarre, parricide, plum, millennium, controllable, violator, pretension, oalli- tbumpian, Czech, dulcet, fogy, rarity, pchism, strait jnoket and mercantile. The comparatively simple word "fogy" was with the exception of Cz'ch misspelled ofteuer than any other word. Not more than n dozen teachers iu the bundled spelled it correctly. The average number missed was 28 which is n far poorer average than tbe las.t contest the average then being but 24. Following are the names and number missed of those after the winners: Lydia J. Moon, 9; Emma Young, 10; Alice Mo- Comas, 12; J. T. Harding, 13; Delia Otis 14; Bessie George, 14; Ida M. Oliver, 14; Mary Miller, 15; Louise Wilson, 15; Forest Chantry, 15; Mrs. J. 0.
