Mre'$ eulogy on
DEED which ncllhcr France nor England, Greece nor
Rome, ever witnessed was done In Independence Hall,
In the cltu of Philadelphia: a deed that cannot lc
matched In the hlstoru of the world. That old Hall
should forever be kept sacred as the scene of such a
deed. Let the rains of heaven distil dentin on Its roof, and the
storms of winter beat softly on its door. As each successive
aencration of those who have been benefited bu the Great Declara
tion made within Its walls shall make their pilgrimage to that
shrine, man thcu think It not unsccmlii to call Its 'walls salvation
and Its Dates praise. Edward Everett.
IT Ih possibles to hold Fourth of
.luly celebrations In tho Hlmtlow
of tho Btrncturo which saw tho
birth find signing of tho Declara
tion of Independence, the most potent
doctrine for freedom In the history of
tho world, nnd the nation has not. Ig
nored tho opportunity.
Thero aro many patriotic Ameri
cans who make It a duty on
July 4 to journey to Philadelphia, a
pllgrlmago to tho shrlno of liberty,
there to raise their voices In thanks
and rejoicing for the great deed that
was there accomplished.
Since that day, now distant 131
years, when Charles Thomson, rising
in his chair, rehd for the first tlmo the
final draft of 'that momentous docu
ment which Thomas Jefferson wrote,
but which underwent miniy changes
before meeting with tho final approval
of tho delegates to (ho continental
congress, not nn Independence day
has been permitted to pass without u
proper celebration in tho public squnro
back of lndcpendcnco hall.
Presidents of the United Stntcs, sen
ators, representatives, Justices of the
highest courts, nnd even foroign am
bassadors have poured forth their clo
quenco nt liberty's cradle. The
municipal authorities of tho city of
Philadelphia aro careful to see to it
that some distinguished mun is always
on hand as orator of tho day.
The pomp of military circumstnncc
haB sometimes been called upon to
lend prcstigo to the occasion, and tho
best musicians of the land have been
proud to play patriotic nlrs in tho
shadow of the ateoplo where hung tho
bell that so singularly fulfilled the pro
phetic mission nsslgned it 24 years
beforo to "proclaim liberty through
out iho land."
The location of tho hall lends Itself
to purposes of public celobratlon.
Thero Is nmplo room, both front and
back, for the building stands well
back from tho pavement, so that a
largo company can gather In front.
In tho rear, tho beautiful Indopen
donco square, there is still more
space, and thousands nsscmblc to lis
ten to tho orations, nnd hear tho
Declaration of Independence read.
This latter is really tho distinctive
fcaturo of Fourth of July celebrations
in Independence square. Tho day
would not seem properly observed
with this omitted.
It is a notable record of which
every American may bo proud that
not a Fourth of July kas passed slnco
wo have been a nation, without tho In
spired words being uttered nguln to
tho air that heard them first.
The first reading of tho declaration
was that by Charles Thomson, the
secretary of congress, when ho an
nounced tho completed paper to tho
men who had framed It. Thomson
did not, however, read tho declaration
from tho balcony of Independence hall
to tho peoplo crowded outsldo to hear
for tho first tlmo In what terms tho
colonlstB should tell King Georgo that
his control of the 13 colonics was nt
That prlvilego was reserved for
John Nixon, a prominent mnmbor of
tho commltteo of safety. In honor of
tho occasion, delegates to tho congress
filed out in tho July sunshine to listen
to tho sacred words.
Later, long years after, Edwin For
est, the most noted of American ac
tors, whoso lovo for patriotism and the
Institutions of his country wns dcopcr
even than hla regard for tho stage,
stood on tho same spot, nnd on a
.Fourth of July morning read tho words
of Jefferson, as no man has road them
beforo or slnco. A great crowd was
present, perhaps tho largest, over as

Finest esteemed the Drrlaintion of
Independence as the best hlnn.lt ploco
of composition In existence, valuing It
even above his beloved Shakespeare.
Two years ufier the lliht Fourth of
July, there occuned a cMirntlon In
Independence square that had ti spe
cial significance. The advance of tho
Hrltlsh, and their oceui ntlon of Phil
adelphia timing the winter of 1777
1778, had forced congress to leave the
Quaker city and go to York.
After the evacuation congiess re
turned July 2 nnd a grand celebration
of the recurrence of the promulgation
of tho declaration was hold. In which
nearly the entire population of Phlln

Tho lace should be all rolled In nn

A good method for washing lace Is
to dip It in a solution made of equal
