two big casks on it They were painted
red and marked Danger Powder in
big letters There were also huge rolls
of thick pasteboard each sheet big
enough to make the whole side of a
house and there were so many of
them that the horses could hardly pull
Uncle Dick rubbed his hands and
chuckled like anything when he saw
the material
You shall certainly have a sky
rocket said he to Jimmy And the
best of it is that the greater part of
the country for hundreds of miles
around will have one too
Jimmy was very curious and still
more puzzled but he knew that Uncle
Dick did not like to explain his inven
tions beforehand so he asked no ques
tions but merely kept his eyes open
and did not go out of sight of the in
ventory shop all morning
Before noon a great gang of men ar
rived and under Uncle Dicks orders
they began to carry all the material to
the pasture where they deposited it
around a huge old dead pine tree that
stood smooth and straight reaching
into the air fully 80 feet without a
branch to break it except on the very
top and that was soon gone too for
Uncle Dick sent men up there and
they lopped it off so that then the
tree stood sleek and smooth like a
Then the sheets of pasteboard were
laid on the ground and rolled into a
great cylinder 30 feet long and at least
ten feet in diameter
As soon as a sheet was rolled into
shape the men tied it tightly with
yards on yards of rope and then an
other sheet was rolled around the first
and more rope tied around that and
so on until all the pasteboard had been
used up and that was such a lot that
It took the men all day with the hardest
kind of work
The next day they opened the casks
of powder and began to load it in and
in hour after hour until the last grain
was pounded in good and hard and
Jimmys Uncle Dick said
So Theres 800 pounds of powder
in there That ought to make her fly
But how about the stick thought
Jimmy He did not say it knowing
how easy it is to spoil an inventors
ideas by interrupting him with friv
olous conversation
He was to learn very soon how about
the stick for as soon as the mighty
cylinder was all finished Uncle Dick
had a derrick rigged and up went the
big thing until it dangled alongside of
the dead pine tree near the dizzy top
of it
Then mighty cables were sent up
and the men lashed the loaded paste
board cylinder to the tree until it was
completely hidden by ropes
Now for the fuse said Uncle Dick
He set the men to work untwisting
ropes until they had more than 300
feet all unraveled Uncle Dick went
up the derrick and put the end of the
unraveled rope into the bottom part of
the rocket Then he poured kerosene
oil all over it and rubbed gunpowder
into it
So he said coming down hand
over hand Now shes finished all ex
cept her looks
He got a great load of shingles and
built a little conical tower nearly as
tall as a house This was painted red
and when it was hoisted to the top of
the tree and set on the rocket it looked
That afternoon Uncle Dick sent out
invitations both by mail and by mes
senger to places as far away as 200
miles saying
Jimmy Broderick respectfully in
vites you to his Uncle Dicks farm to
see him set off the biggest skyrocket
in the world on the evening of the
Fourth of July
Uncle Dick also sent word to the
papers about it and on the evening of
the Fourth more thau 10000 people

JIMMY not only a great inventor
but one of the kindest men that
ever lived
Although he earned his living by in
venting useful things like automatic
plows that would plow a whole field in
the night time while the farmer lay in
bed asleep and automatic fish poles
that would bait their own hooks and
throw out their own lines and pull in
their own fish and take them off and
bait the hooks over again still Uncle
Dick was ready at a minutes notice to
drop all that sort of thing and invent
something to give a boy pleasure And
you will agree that a nphew who has
an uncle like that has a treasure
Jimmy Broderick knew this and he
took great care of Uncle Dick carrying
an umbrella for him when it rained and
watching to see that he ate his meals
regularly for like all great inventors
Uncle Dick could not take care of him
self very well
What would you like for the Fourth
of July Jimmy asked Uncle Dick
about a week before that important
I would like most of all to have a
great big sky rocket said Jimmy
You shall have one said his uncle
and immediately went into his inven
tory shop which is the funny name
that he gave to the little room where
he invented things
The telephone bell rang a good deal
that day On the very next morning a
big truck arrived from the city with
were at the farm wondering at the im
mense skyrocket and trembling all
over at the thought of the explosion
when she went off And all over the
land people who could not go to tho
farm were watching the heavens and
paying very little attention to the oth
er fireworks of the United States be
cause the papers had told all about the
rocket and had explained that it could
be seen hundreds of miles when it
went up
When the time came Uncle Dick
gave Jimmy a big piece of lighted punk
and then he stood in front of the treo
and said
Ladies and Gentlemen You will
notice that this tree is inclined toward
the north My calculations tell me
that when the rocket is lit it will pull
the tree clear out of the ground and
go north for at least 1000 miles which
will bring it over uninhabited country
where it will fall without hurting any
body unless a bear or a moose should
get in the way Now Jimmy touch
her off
Jimmy touched the end of the fuse
and then everybody ran away to a safe
distance The fire climbed swiftly and
suddenly with a bang that shook the
hills and broke the windows even in
Ten Thousand People Were There
towns 100 miles away the giant rocket
went off
Out came the tree roots and all and
sailed grandly into the sky with a hiss
ing trail of fire behind it The amazed
spectators watched it for more than
half an hour getting smaller and
smaller till it disappeared in the
northern sky
For days after that the paper printed
reports from distant places from peo
ple who had seen a wonderful fiery
thing in the night By means of these
reports it was possible for Uncle Dick
to pursue the course of his wonderful
rocket until he found that it had gone
far over Canada but he could not
learn where it had fallen and he did
not learn until recently
But about a week ago a hunter who
had been in the very far north of Can
ada near Hudson bay shooting musk
oxen visited Uncle Dick He told a lot
of interesting hunting adventures and
finally said
The queerest thing that I saw was
far up in the barren lands where there
are no trees One day I saw something
odd some distance away and I went
there on my snow shoes
What do you suppose I found A
mighty tree That was queer enough
up there But queerer still was the fact
that this tree did not stand in the
ground as other trees do but stood
roots up with its crown buried deeply
in the soil It was the most marvelous
sight I have even seen and I can hard
ly believe it yet I would give a good
deal to know what caused this strange
freak of nature
Uncle Dick chuckled and winked at
Did you ever hear of Jimmys won
derful skyrocket he asked
No never said the hunter You
know I have been in the wilderness a
long time
So Uncle Dick told him After he
got through the hunter said I am
glad to knew this I intended to write
a book about it but now I shall be
able to save myself the trouble
Betsy Ross
A quiet house a quiet street
A needle and a thread
A scissors and a square of blue
Some strips of white and red
And slender hands that deftly stitched
The shining- stars across
Twas thus the flasr of Liberty
Was made by Betsy Ross
Though Father Time has worn to rags
The ermine robes of kings
And left the guns of war to rust
Among forgotten things
Though crowns and scepters at his touch
Have turned to dust and dross
Yet not a broken stitch has marred
The work of Betsy Ross
In stately hall and lowly home
This day Its colors wave
The shelter of the worlds oppressed
The beacon of the brave
Let glory on the nations shield
Among the stars emboss
