down on the river bank to rest. Pretty

500 ducks. I pulled back both ham

'Just as I was going to pull both
triggers, I heard a noise down the
river. I looked iu that direction aud
saw 5,000 geese, so I thought I would
rather have the geese than the ducks,
so I took aim at the geese. 1 whs

called to u slight rustling noise just in

three feet away I saw a big rattlesnake
with its mouth wide open and ready
to bite, so 1 thought the best thing to
do was to shoot the reptile.

Plea for a Sane Fourth
of July Celebration
OMIee of State Fire Commissioner,
Lincoln, Neb., June ft.
The time is near at hand when the
oeople of this state will eolebrate In
dependence day. The patriotism of
both young and old on that day is
usually aroused to the highest pitch
and there seems to be as many d lifer
ent ways of showing one's apprecia
tion of the freedom and liberty that
they enjoy as there have been ways
aud means of showing it. Tho most
common, usually, among the boys aud
girls seems to be the lire-cracker, the
torpedo, the toy pistol, the Roman
candle, tho sky-rocket, aud like ways
of mitklng a loud noise or a bright
light. I'Mitilly the boys and girls iu
whose hands these deadly articles nre
placed have no idea of the danger
that attends them, and it is not until
afljer the deadly worlc has been ac
complished that tlit'v fully realize
they havo been playing with death
On July 4, lltlo, there wore a,l2:i per
sons injured, of which 1,'U died; G7
deaths were due to tetanus and 10
were caused outright by firearms; 11
by explosion of powder bombs or tor
pedoes; 6 by cannon or similar con
trivances. There wore 72 caes of
loci: jaw; 40 people lost their sight; SG
lout arms, legs or hands; Ul lost An
gers, while '!(', mostly little cirls,
were burned to death by lire from
fireworks. This is a startling show
ing, but it is a material reduction
since l'.)0;i, when there were nearly
double the number injured and four
limes as many lives lost. The reduc
tion in injuries aud fatalities has
largely been brought about by the
calling of the attention of mothers and
fatheisand of the dealers in these
deadly explosives to the results that
attend them when placed iu the hands
of Inexperienced persons.
I wish to call upon the fatheisand
mothers of all the boys aud girls of
Nebraska to see to it that their boys
and girls will not bo pormitted to pur
chase or ignite or use any of these
deadly explosives. I also wish to call
the attention of the business men to
the fact that, for the little profit they
may receive from the sale of those ex
plosives, they can not afford to en
danger the lives of their customers
by selling them articles that will
either causo their death or malm them
for life and destroy thousands of dol
iar worth of property.
I recently saw a picture, and under
neath it was in&crlbod: "Tho Day
After the Fourth." Reclining upon a
a conch was a little boy about ten
years old; a bandage wns over his
eyes; his mother was kneeling beside
the couch, her prostrate form thrown
across the body of her boy, crying bit
terly, while the father and the doctor
stood by, igazlug upon the the little
sufferer with a look upon thole faces
that depicted despair. Only the day
before, this little boy started out to
celebrate Independence day, just as
your little boy or little girl will start
out on the coming Fourth of July.
The little money that had been given
this boy to celebrate Independence
day bad been expended for dangerous
explosives. He bad touched them off
and his eyes had paid the ponalty.
During all his after life ho must grope
in darkness, the beauties of nature
closed to him forerer, and instead of
being a support and help to his father
and mother in their declining years
be will be a dependent as long as he
lives. This could all have been avert
ed bad the fathei and mother taken
the precaution to see that their child
would celebrate the Fourtlrof July In
ftjans and se'hslblo way,
I ask you fathers and mothers to
read over the description of this pic
ture and 6ee how you would feel after
next Independence day if you were
placed in the same position that this
picture just described shows that this
father and mother wero in, and then I
ask you to uso every effort to avoid
any possibility of an occurrence of

every town in this state should see to
it that everything of an inflammable
nature is removed, to prevent a con
flagration and the destruction of prop
erty by the careless use of fireworks
and explosives, in several states, city
and village councils have passed ordi
nances forbidding the use of explo
sives within the village or city limits.
It is not too lute for councils to enact
ordinances that will prevent the sale
and use of these dangerous articles on
the coming Fourth of July, aud I ur
gently ask that you give this matter
careful attention, as it will not. only
save thousands of dollars worth of
property, but.will prevent the loss of
life and limb In the state.
Let us all vie one with the other to
inoulcate patriotism and the love of
country in the hearts and minds of
our children, but let us do it in a way
that will reflect credit upon our citi
zenship and intelligence and not leave
the disgraceful scars that are left by
thcuae of explosives in the hands of
cliiWrok and those who have neither
knowledge nor care for the results
that may follow the careless handling
of these deadly ageuoicB.
