Independence Bell
A Poem That Has Been Read for
Years That Is Worth Heading
Again Who Wrote It
When It became certain thnt the Declaration
of Independence would be adopted and con
firmed by the signatures of the delegates in the
Continental Congreoi It was determined to an
nounce the event by rinirinir the old State House
bell which bore the inscription Proclaim liberty
to the Undf to all Inhabitants thereof I and the old
bellman posted his grandson ut the door of the
hall to await the instruction of the doorkeeper
when to rlnsr At the word that the docu
ment had been 6itrncd the little patriot scion
rushed out and fllnttinir up his hands shouted
Ring I Rlnc RING
There was a tumult in the city
In the quaint old Quaker town
And the streets were rife with people
Pacing restless up and down
People gathering at corners
Where they whispered each to each
And the sweat stood on their temples
With the earnestness of speech
As the bleak Atlantic currents
Lash the wild Newfoundland shore
So they beat against the State House
So they surged against the door
And the mingling of their voices
Made a harmony profound
Till the quiet street of chestnuts
Was all turbulent with sound
Will they do it Dare they do it
Who js speaking Whats the news
What of Adams What of Sherman-
Oh God grant they wont refuse
Make some way there -Let me nearer I
I am stifling Stifle then
When a Nations lifes at hazard
Weve no time to think of men
So they beat against the portal
Men and women maid and child
And the July sun in heaven
On the scene looked down and smiled
The same sun that saw the Spartan
Shed his patriot blood in vain
Now beheld the soul in freedom
All unconquered rise again
So they surged against the State House
While all solemnly inside
Sat the Continental Congress
Truth and reason for their guie
Oer a simple scroll debating
Which though simple it might be
Yet should shake the cliffs of England
With the thunders of the free
At the portal of the State House
Like some beacon in a storm
Hound which waves are wildly beating
Stood a boyish slender form
With his eyes fixed on the steeple
And his ears agape with greed
To catch the first announcement
Of the signing of the deed
Aloft in that high steeple
Sat the bellman old and gray
He was weary of the tyrant
And his iron sceptered sway
So he sat with one hand ready
On the clapper of the bell
When his eye should catch the signal
The happy news to tell
See 1 see I The dense crowd quivers
Through all its lengthy line
As the boy beside the portal
Looks forth to give the sign
With his small hands upward lifted
Breezes dallying with his hair
Hark with deep clear intonation
Breaks his young voice on the air
Hushed the peoples swelling murmur
List the boys strong joyous cry
Ring he shouted Ring Grandpa
Ring Oh Ring for Liberty
And straightway at the signal
The old bellman lifts his hand
And sends the good news making
Iron music through the land
How they shouted what rejoicing
How the old bell shook the air
Till the clang of freedom ruffled
The calm gliding Delaware
How the bonfires and the torches
Illumined the nights repose
And from the flames like Phoenix
Fair Liberty arose
The old bell now is silent
And hushed its iron tongue
But the spirit it awakened
Still lives forever young
And while we greet the sunlight
On the Fourth of each Juby
Well neer forget the bellman
Who twixt the earth and sky
Which please God shall never die
Uncertainty on This Point Has Given
Rise to Two Schools of Thought
The afternoon of Fourth of July has
a strong tendency to be poky To avert
this catastrophe many devices have
been introduced One of them is to
have a picnic Now there are two op
posing and mutually exclusive schools
of thought in re the Fourth of July pic
nic The one school holds that it al
ways rains on that afternoon the oth
er denies that proposition and main
tains that those who so vividly recall
standing under a tree a tree as a
shelter when it rains pitchforks and
feather beds is the rankest kind of a
swindle and something ought to be
done about it standing under a leaky
tree and watching the little men
jumping in the lemonade tub while
the tablecloths soak into sodden rags
and the layer cake pitifully dissolves
are really thinking of the annual Sab
hath school picnic when of course it
I dislike very much to take sides on
any question I am like the politician
who was campaigning in a neighbor
hood divided on entirely non political
lines into two parties one maintain
ing that it was just foolishness to say
that the earth turned clear over every
day and the other that it must be so
because it said so In the geography
book You know about such things
they ask him Now does it It dont
does it Not clear over
We ell Ha It does a little
he said Eugene Wood in Every
Very True
Oh said Edith Louise as she saw
the soldiers getting ready to fire the
Fourth of July cannon you mustnt
go near that gun or you might get
killed and Its dangerous gettln

British Engineer Fought Africans and
Built Road Above Clouds
Basil Tanfield Boothby bronzed
from his experience in the tropics in
the last 13 years building railroads
fighting savages and shooting big
game has arrived in America bound
for his home in England The young
engineer has helped to make history
during the long time that ho has been
away from civilization and the story
he tells Is one of absorbing interest
Ho left England for Uganda Africa
in 1895 under orders from the Brit
ish foreign office to carry the con
struction of the government railroad
from Uganda to Mombassa
This railroad was needed for
strategic reasons to hold Uganda
Boothby stayed in the African wilder
ness four years carrying out the im
portant task intrusted to him
He is enthusiastic over Uganda as
a sportsmans paradise declaring that
it is the greatest big game country
in the world Walton Harrison one
of the engineers in his party was
killed as a result of a stirring ad
venture while lion hunting with him
Harrison killed one of the beasts but
was torn to pieces by a lioness which
he had wounded
Boothby took part In many skir
mishes with the native tribes which
were hostile to his work His position
as a government engineer made him
ex oflicio a magistrate and he led one
campaign against 500 blacks who had
harassed his party poisoning the water
and waylaying stragglers and cutting
their throats This tribe was the Wak
ikuo and lived on the edge of the
Great Gift valley
This extraordinary valley is 1000
miles long running north and south
and 40 miles wide at its narrowest
point It is 2000 feet deep and
through an upheaval ages ago is 5000
feet above the level of the sea It is
full of lakes and rivers and volcanoes
and inhabited by the finest tribe of
warriors in Africa savages who eat
no vegetables or fruit but subsist on
a meat diet entirely This tribe the
Massai is allied to the Zulus
When Boothby finished his Uganda
railway in 1S99 he took an order to
build a railroad across the Andes in
South America from Buenos Ayres to
Valparaiso The surveys carried the
line over a district of lofty peaks the
pass where the divide was crossed be
ing 13000 feet above the sea level
Boothby encountered many difficul
ties aside from engineering problems
The negotiations with the Chilian gov
ernment were not successful and the
result was that only part of the line
the Argentine side was finished
In 1900 Boothby went to China to
work on the Shanghai Nanking rail
road a line which will be ready to be
opened soon The road will serve
a rich district and Boothby says that
tnus lar tne traffic is very encourag
ing The difficulties which the road
encountered with the likin the inter
nal customs bureau of which Sir Rob
ert Hart is the head are about to be
adjusted amicably
The Shanghai Nanking railroad ex
tends 200 miles and cost about 10
000000 It was built for the Chinese
Imperial railways through a loan
raised by a British and Chinese cor
Chicagos Great Subway
One of the most remarkable of lat
ter day romances of millions has to
deal with the freight subway system
of Chicago a marvel of enterprise re
quiring a staggering expenditure
While this great enterprise was not
intended primarily to economize in
time its purpose was to facilitate the
local receipt shipment and exchange
of freight to prevent congestion of
streets and in this way to insure a
more prompt transaction of business
in the second largest city in the
A swifter transaction of the business
of the great city has been the result
so that this expenditure of 30000
000 for 45 miles of tunnels beneath
Chicagos streets may be charged up
to the world wide fight to gain time
In its simpler commercial aspect this
subway system is a 45 mile network
of underground conduits to facilitate
the movement of freight from depot
to depot from warehouse to ware
house from factory to store and from
merchant to consumer
Every street within an area nearly
two miles square is duplicated ex
cept as to buildings at a depth of
from 25 to 40 feet underground each
street intersection name and direction
below corresponding to the same on
the surface
China Building Railroads
In China during the last year
through traffic was resumed on the
Alanchurian railways The Hsinmintun
Mukden line has been redeemed by
China at a cost of 1G66000 The
Shanghai Nankin railway has been ex
tended to Chinkiang and should he
completed within a few months to
Nankin the Kalgan railway built en
tirely by Chinese of which the first
section was opened on September 30
190G has been steadily pushed for
ward the Chentung Taidan branch of
the Pekin Hankow line was opened on
December 6 the construction of the
182 miles having taken three years
and three months while another
branch from Kalfeng to Chenchou
was opened earlier in the year Work
on the Canton Kowloon railway Is also
being pushed on rapidly
Canadas New Line
Canadas new transcontinental rail
way from Moncton on the Atlantic to
Prince Rupert on the Pacific a dis
tance of rather more than 3000 miles
Is fully under way and is to be com
pleted by December 1 1911 at a coBt
of 200000000
Story Is Vouched for by Two Men of
Good Reputation Recognition of
Friends Seemed to Please
MOST remarkable in
stance of ghostly appari
tion occurred In the
yards of one of the big
railroads running into
during the win
ter of 189G
Engine No 587 was
one of the largest and
best on the division and
had been relegated to
the switch yards for bad
behavior so the yardmen
said Ever since No 587 had been
built it had been run by Mr W one of
the oldest engine drivers on the rail
road The iron horse was a beauty
large powerful and the pride of
every one who had anything to do
with it
Soon after the big strike of the A
R U Mr W died very suddenly and
No 587 was of course turned over to
other engine drivers The old engine
went all right for a while but it was
not long after Mr Ws death that it
began kicking up and playing all sorts
of pranks It ran off the track one
night and came near ditching a whole
train of freight cars If it had run
off the track but once nothing would
have been thought of it hut the per
verse monster kept running off the
track every few weeks and smashing
things so badly that it was in the re
pair shops nearly a third of the time
The superintendent of course al
ways laid the blame on the engine
drivers and more than one man was
laid off for it
Finally No 5S7 was transferred to
the switch yards where it worked all
right for a while then it began smash
ing things again At last it was
turned over to one of Mr Ws old
friends Mr N an engine driver of
exceptionally good record who prided
himself on never having had a wreck
but even he could not keep No 587 on
the track
The weather had been bad for over
a week the tracks were slippery and
the engine driver on No 587 always
was on the lookout that he kept to
the track all right One night it was
raining hard and was as dark as pitch
No 5S7 started down the tracks after
a bunch of cars There was a lot of
freight to be pulled out that night and
the switching was unusually heavy
The fireman had filled the firebox with
coal and had settled himself on his
bench for a rest Mr N had his head
out the window and was backing up
slowly when he felt a cold hand laid
on his own which was on the lever
The coldness of the hand startled
him but he thought of course it was
the fireman who had clutched his
hand to warn him of some danger
turning his head to see what was the
matter he beheld to his horror Mr
Ws apparition looking as natural as
though he were alive and about to
start on his night run
Of course his account of the appari
tion was met with scoffing and con
siderable chaffing upon the part of
the railroad men about the yards and
the engine driver began to think that
it might have been a delusion after
One night however about a month
after Ws apparition made its first
appearance in the cab of No 5S7 the
engine driver had his head out of the
window waiting for the signal to back
up The fireman was fussing about the
firebox Suddenly as before Mr W
put in his appearance again and stood
there with his hand on the throttle
Both engine driver and fireman saw
the figure
If the engine driver had been fright
ened at Mr Ws apparition the fire
man was paralyzed with fear crying
out with chattering teeth Its Ws
ghost and no mistake about it
The recognition from his two old
friends seemed to please Hie phan
tom for he nodded his head smiled
pulled open the throtVe and backed
the engine As toe engine driver said
afterward I didnt know whether I
or W ran No 5S7 that night
All to Save a Minute
What is the value of a minute ol
time Do you think 1000000 too ex
travagant a figure
Considerably more than this is be
ing paid by some of the big railroads
of the country in their efforts to van
quish Father Time In order to save
about 30 minutes in reaching the heart
of New York the Pennsylvania rail
road is spending about 60000000 to
burrow under the Hudson river That
is paying 2000000 a minute
When the New York Centrals plans
involving an expenditure of 70000
000 are completed engineers figure
that the running schedule of cjach
train will be reduced six or eight min
utes Not all of this vast sum for im
provements can be charged to a desire
to save time however Still every
minute lopped off will cost very near
the high water mark
