I- THE SEMI-CENTENNIAL THE   MOST   DRAMATIC   OF   INDEPENDENCE   DAY   INCIDENTS, There is a catch in that state-xuent, but there is also a for-vthose who get them. When tt coxnes riie Author and the Chief Advocate of the DeclaratloB of Independence-Their Death* Were So Bemarhablo That Many Saw a FroTideoco In It. Beyond question the most Interesting fact in the history of Independence day Is that the man who drafted the Declaration and the man who stood at his side when he introduced it into congress, and who predicted with accuracy its future fame, died upon the same day and exactly fifty years after completing tho greatest act of their lives. They differed inrfilmost every element 'of character, yet both were ardent patriots, upright law makers, and, in their ways, able statesmen. The Massachu-Betts man, with a Pmitanical education and inherent dlfltrust of universal suffrage, and the Virginian, of extremely liberal training and unbounded faith in democracy, worked their way to exactly the same conclusion in regard to Great Britain and the colonies. They stood together like brothers while the war lasted, then became the heads of radically differing parties, and were not reconciled till age had cooled their ambition and retirement had allowed resentment to die. They probably agreed more nearly as to religious questions than any other. John Adams called himself a Unitarian, and posterity has agreed to call Thomas Jefferson a Deist, yet it is impossible to define with any exactness how they differed as to the attributes of God or the moral government of the universe. Adams certainly said the harsher things of Calvinism, but that was probably because he lived whore Calvinism was still the ruling power; and it is amusing to note that Jefferson, who never spoke of any man's religion when he could decently avoid it, was long and vehemently denounced as a blasphemer and "French infidel," while Adams was popularly regarded as orthodox. The popular instinct, however, was sound; the mind of Adams was reverential-to a degree far greater than that of Jefferson. Some old writer has summed up their alliance in the Eevolution, for different reasons, by saying that Adams wanted the existing liberties of Englishmen secured by establishing a greater and better England in America, wbilp Jefferson wanted a new system, root and branch, to secure the absolute liberties of human nature. John Adams was bom Oct. 19, 1735, and Thomas Jefferson April 3, 1743; the former also lived a few hours the later, Iiis age at death being within three months of 91, while that of Jefferson was but 83. Jefferson was an extreme blonde, Adams somewhat darker; the fomer was tall and in youth somewhat ungainly, while the latter was rather below tho mediimi size, firmly knit and gi-acefu] from his youth. Their friendship seemed to increase till the peace and they corresponded freely; but in their first service abroad each had an exiierience which even then indicated that they were soon to be political opponents, the narration of which is both amusing and instructive. Jolm Adams, as the first American minister to England, was, to put it bluntly, snubbed; Thomas Jefferson, on the contrary, was received with enthusiastic welcome at the court of France. The former denoimced George lU and his ministers, but bestowed high praise on the British government and people; the latter passed King Louis XVI over with immi mm the peopie. We are aware that the term 'Bargains" is much abused; because under ;the g^ise of bargains  many firms work off old stocks. New Goods of best grade at prices a shade lower than are made elsewhere on goods that are old enough to vote. men and patriots descended hand In hand, as It were, to tnp grave. On the evening of July 8,182C, it became evident that Jefferson wtt9 dying. A little after midnight he revived and remarked, "This is the Fourth of July." Early in tho forenoon he became unconscious and soon after noon expired-within one hour of exactly fifty years after presenting tho Declaration to congress. About 3 o'clock the same day.-Mr. Adams was roused by hearing the shouts of tho people in a distant grove, celebrating tho day. He mentioned the fact and added, "Thomas Jefferson still lives." Soon after he breathed his lost. As the slow mails of those days spread the news the people were overcome by tho gi'eat coincidence and remarked that heaven itself had set the seal of its high approval upon their gieat work by calling home on its first semi-centennial the author and the chief supporter of the Declaration of Indejwhdence. i  J. H. Beadle. DKOPPED WITH  THE rABACHUTE. ABiaAIL abajus. something very like a sneer, and railed at his queen. When Minister Adams, after long delay, met George III for tho first time the king said abruptly: "Mr. Adams, I wish you to understand that I was the last man to consent to the independence of .America." : Adams made an equally brnsque reply: "I have no feeling or affection save for my own oonntryi" "An honest man vnll have no other," rejoined the king; and so they soon became good friends. When Minister Jefferson was introduced to Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, his queen, they overwhelmed him with compliments and good wishes for "our dear allies, the Americana," to which he replied with onljr oCQcial conr-tesyjBnd was soon intensely interested in the signs of the coming French revo-' Intion. It was plain, even then, that Thomas Jefferson would defend that revolution: That Adama wanted a stronger central govemmenii for the United. States luiAJ�ffer8on a larger measnre of local indqjtendeace la a fact known to all. Two parties formed, and then came the French revolution and roused political pas^ons to the boiling point. If the two had! been superior to human nature and intent on. remaining friends, their furi-otu partinms would pot have allowed it. They exchanged only the coldest oflQciajl courtesieB, and for thirteen years did not correapond. The indignation of Mrs. Abigail Adams over a wrong done to her aon, John . Quincy, was indirectly the oanae of .reconciliation. She asked for an explanatiQn; Jefferson wrote and convinced hwihat he voB In no wayceapon-fiUe^ an^i-^ apon; the old eauMtiaetfwm tte two clfl rtilw rrlffhtful JCaU of a I.iidy Aeronaut nt f/ley�lu'nd, O. Cleveland, O., Jime 80.-"Estella Leroy," a Cleveland girl, whose real name is Hull, attempted to take her first balloon ascension and parachute jump at Beyerle's park. She failed, however, and narrowly escapsd serious in jury and perhaps death. The balloon was inflated with hot air, and an employe named Ed French was sent inside to keep it from igniting from sparks from the fire. He was forgotten, and when the balloon was sufficiently inflated it was cut loose and shot up into the air. French was not prepared for the ascension and he began to scramble put. One of his feet caught itt the ropes and he hung head downward. After a vigorous struggle he succeeded In extricating himself, wlien the balloon was about thirty feet from the earth, and after turaing two somersHults in the air he alighted on the ground on his face and was severely injured^ The struggles of French loosened the parachute from the. balloon, and when at the height of 100 feet it suddenly broke loose. The parachute does not open until it has traversed a considerable distance, and the woman descended with a rush. There was a loud cry of terror and a general stampede. Fortunately the aeronaut fell into the branches of a large, tree, and was rescued without sustdining any injury-She was considerably frightened, but declared her intention of trying the feat again. Why KnTolopes' Are Kodeenicd. Some people have an Idea that the government redeems postago stamps when from any cause they become unfit for use or are difficult to use. Frequently sheets of stamps are stuck'i^togetlier, or are torn or injured. Tho loss, if any, falls upon the owner, as the government refuses to assume any responsibility for stamps when once sold. The agents of the government, the pastmasters, can redeem stamps which they have for sale, if through any accident they become unfit for use. But when the citizen buys a stamp ho either uses it In the legitimate way or elao ho ia out the value of the stamp. The government, however, redeems stamped envelopes. It one should happen to be misdirected or should become blotted, or for any reason a person should wish to tear open a stamped envelope after he had sealed it for mailing, he can bring it to the postofBco and get a brand new envelope in its place. The reason of this difference in the treatment of the adhesive stamp and the stamped envelope is that the adhesive stamp can be used and then washed and passed as good, unless a careful scrutiny is made. If tho government should begin the practice of redeeming adhesive stamps the opportunities for fraud would be increased. Then the adhesive stamps are manufactured at a cost to the government, which the stamped envelope is not. The stamps are furnished to the public at the face value, and out of this has to come the cost of manufacture, but in the case of stamped envelopes they are sold at their face value, plus the cost of manufacture.-Washington Star.   _ "One Dollar, Please." "What is this doUor for, miss?" "To build a church," was the reply from a plain, almost homely young lady who stood by my office ch air. Yet she had such a wholesome face,: there was something so unmistakably, solidly Rood about the face, that I credited her without hesitation. I never asked what kind of a church, whether it ^iras Methodist, Baptist, Roman Catholic or Jewish; I simply knew we 'could not have too many churches in our big city. Would I give a dollar to build a new church? Well, I reckon so. She had it promptly. Two gentlemen who were sitting in my office each volunteered a do! lar before she could ask-men who rarely if ever enter a church. Some weeks after I had occasion* to ask, and found that this one young lady had picked up a thousand easy dollars for so good a cause.  She said: "Hardly any one refused me. People are better at heart than the*churches sometimes think they are .when the pastor is preaching against 'the -vvicked world.' "- New York Weekly. Tolitoi In Poor Health. Count Leo Tolstoi, we are sorry to hear; is seriously ill. He has Inflammation of the bowels; and, as those who have read bis latest novel will be aufflciently aware, he has a bitter antipathy to doctors. There is a danger, we fear, of the count emulating the "Peculiar People" in declining to have medical assistance, and in that case the world is likely to have nothing more from the pen of the author of "Anna Karenina." It is deplorable that the man whose literary works have made such a deep mark upon the minds of his contemporaries all over Europe, and whose latter day influence ever sinde he turned teacher and preacher has had the largest and strongest element of good, should fall in Us old age into the quagmire of whimsies indicated by the_extreme doctrines of "The Kreutzer Sona!a" and by. such hobbies of a recluse as this contempt for the aid of medicine.-Fall Hall Gazette.    .
