The archives of the national government
contain two priceless treasure1 ? , guarded
with jealous cure. They tire the original nnd
the engrossed copy of freedom's ' mogna
chnrtii Jefferson's draft and tno official
peclar.itlou of Independence. The original
draft , now yellow nnd worn , and the on-
Etosaod copy signed by the members of the
Continental congress nro both in a glass
OBSO on the cast wall of Iho State depart
ment library. The original draft us mndo by
Thomas Jefferson has a number of erasures
nnd Insertions by himself and two or three
verbal changes bv Dr. Franklin nnd John
Adams , ns Indicated in tbo margin , The
Declaration of Indoncndenco was leapt in the
patent ofllco till IbTII , when It was taken to
Iho centennial exposition , after which It wn
taken to the Stnto dcpaitmcnt , .vlieio It has
remained over since.
The otlglnhl draft bv Jefferson Is Inn much
more readable stnto than the engrossed copy ,

only bo distinguished by thu long t's , which ,
nru still clear.
John Hancock's name can bo rend on ac
count of its monstrous size. The J is fully
two inches long. The conversation which
occur led Just bcforo Hancock signed his
utuno ns recorded in history Is amusing.
The debate ns to the expediency of declaring
Independence was of vhreo days' duration ,
nnd although II ended In the adoption of Iho
Declaration of Independence ) on"thu Fourth
of July the members did not sign the docu
ment for sovcrnl w 'ots. ! When they came
to put their Hlgnnuircs to it John
IIniH'oeu , being the president of the Con
tinental congress , signed his inline llrst. As
ho wns nbout to do so ho snld , "Wo must all
bo unanimous ; there must bo no pulling dif
ferent , ways ; wo must nil hung together , " to
Which Ben Franklin , who was ever ready
with his wit , responded , "Yes , wo must all
hang together or wo must ul ! hang sep
arately. " Then John Hancock , taking the
quill , signed the declaration ina larire , bold
hand , und although the statement is not tote
to found in any serious history It Is said that
ho made the remark ns ho laid the quill
down , ' 'There will bo no trouble in reading
in.v namennd 1 am willing to take the consequences
quences whatever they may bo. "
Jefferson , who , it is said , always worked
diligently in committt'o and said llttlo in
general debate , listened to all the criticism
made during thu discussion of the Declara
tion , but laid not 11 word. The task of da-
Bomiing the Declaration fell to John Adams.
Jefferson says In his Journal : "During the
debate I was sitting by Dr. Franklin , who
observed thet I wns writhing n llttlo under
the acrimonious criticism of some of Its
parts ; and it was on that occasion that
by way of comfort ho told mo the
torv of John Thompson , the batter , and
bis now slfin. " This story Is told by Dr.
Franklin in his autobiography. It Is about
the John Thomnson , who wns going to open
a hat sere , and on his blgn board proposed
to huvo painted a lnit and the words : "John
Thompson , hatter , makes and sells hats. "
Bo much objection was raised to the wording
of the Inscription that the sign was finally
Abbreviated to nucb an extent that there
was nothing but tno name "John Thomp-
on , " and the picture of n hat. So that wo
co that Franklin was anxious to show Jef
ferson that he must expect contention over
thu greatest question "of the ago when there
had neon so much discussion over n hat sign.
The desk on which JofTor&on made his
draft of the Declaration of Independence-
also In the Stata department library. The
dosU is noout four Inches high , nmo inches
Wide nnd fourteen inches long , and so com
pact as to bo easily carried. It is of black
walnut nml the surface is covered with green
felt. The top is arranged In two pieces or
Haps so that they can bo raised. One picco
Is 10 adjusted on hinges that It can bo turned
back train the desk so ns to rest on a table ,
nnd the other picco is made RO that It can be
elevated slightly from tno desk and hold in
position by small supports on clthor sido.
NVhen so arranged these two ploces
nro in the lumo plan ? , and so form a
largo writing surface. A drawer opens at
the right sldo of the desk and discloses ink
well , quill box and paper space , so that In
this llttlo chest , which can bo so easily
moved about , room U provided for every
thing wanted in writing. In a uoto sent
\ with the desir , when ho gave it to a frlond ,
Jefferson exhibits his modest und unassum
ing character. Ilo oven goes so far as to use
the third person with an evident dcsiro to
refrain from making a statement which
would show the least suspicion of self con
ceit. He says : "Th. Jefferson gives this
writing desk to Josonh Coolldgo , juu. , as a
memorial of niTui'tion. ft was made
from u drawing of his own by Hen Hun-
dnll , cabinet maker of Philadelphia , with
whom ho llrst lodged on bis arrival in that

"Thoro wore n lot of pcoplo nt the tomb

Wo waited , too , but no soldiers or nilybody

" 'Somebody ought to put on a now flat ?
"Wo wont to a store on the boulevard and
for 20 francs bought a now flap Just like this

There were two women and a llttlo girl nt
iho tomb when wo cot back and wo waited
till they wont away. Then wo unrolled the
now llasr and tcok the eld ono off the tomb.
"Wo thought wo ought to say somothlnc
When wo put the now ling on , but wo didn't
know what to say. Ocorso said they always
made n regular pccch thanking Lafayette
for helping us In iho rovolu'lon , but wo
thought It didn't mutter much. So wo just
took off our hats when wo spread out the

Ton days nfor this adventure came the 14th
of Julv , iho great ' 'QmUorzo Julllat , " which ,
I bcliovc , was the day on which the French
people stormed the grim old hustilo and
cried ; "Down witn the tyranny ot kings I"
Of course wo went to sco the great parade.
Uoforo wo started out Frank suggested
that wo should got two big flags , of Just
the same size ono American red , white
and blue , and the other Fiench 'red , white
unil blue , and tnko them along in the ear-
rlago with us. Well , wo crossed the 1'laco

straight up to the Arc do Trlomphc , when
suddenly Frank gnvo n shout from the box.

reached our oars Irom the crowds ahead ,

people waving hats and handkerchiefs.
"I coic at the pistols , " cried Frank from
this Lex. "They're holding them right un iu

cheering on all sides "Lo President 1"
Ilo was almost abreast of us and close by ,
when suddenly I noticed that ho was looking

It was the American ilagl
There it was , floating proudly aloft in the

And when Frank saw the president right
abreast of him , and everybody looking nt his

straight up , held thn flag as uighiu the aims

of the French republic I The crowd was
cheering wildly. President Carnet moved
forward a little in his seat , lifted his hat
and bowed low to Frank and the American
And then In n second ho had passed.
And tbi ! Hag , I think , is pri/ed by Frank
even moro than the other. At least whenever -
over ho takes anybody up l his room ho
always says first :

Dr. W. O. Korcrs sends the following com
munication for Insertion in this column in
reply to an excerpt from the Modern Wood
man published Iu last Sunday's Ur.K :
The quotation in TUB SUNDAY BISK from
the Modern Woodman , n paper printed by
the order , is manifestly unfair , misleading ,
and n direct thrust at the good immo of J. C.
Uoot of this city , the founder ot woderntt
and the principal olllcor of the Woodmen of
Iho World , a successful order which Is re
garded ns a rival or competitor.
The Inference to bo gathered by the article
would bo that criminal proceedings had bcon
Instituted against the ofllcnrs of the Modern
Woodmen unit that conviction had resulted ,
Such is not the case. The lawsuit was u
civil action in the county court brought by
State Auditor Pavoy against the Modern
Woodmen of America and its ofllccrs nt the
instigation of P. L. McICInnlo , who had boon
removed from ofllco by the unanimous vote
of tlio directors.
Incidentally another suit was begun to
wind up the order and throw it into the
hands of u rucoivor. Mr. Uoot borrowed
$10,000 upon bis panonal crodlt , pud off its
liabilities , defeated the suit and saved tbo
lifo of the order of which ho wus the
The state case was practically defeated , as
the oflluors ( except Mi'ICIniile , who wds removed -
moved ) hold their olllcoi to expiration of
tholr terms , and the only controversy In the
case was as to who should pay the costs. The
old oftlcers gave it no further attention , not
even attending the trial , and Judgment for
costs was ronJorcd niruinst six of the olovcn
directors who happened to oo present Rt n
meeting of the directors that voted unon n
resolution offered by MuKlnnlo himself to
allow the head clerk reimbursement for
moneys expended by him and time employed
In visiting and instituting new camps , which
the directors hold was outsldoof and In addi
tion to his duties of head clerk , tiut which
the Judco hold resulted in increasing his
compensation as bend clerk , which Is con
strued as a technical violation of Illinois law.
The directors who were present ( Including
the head consul , Mr. Hoot ) were the only
olllcors against whon. costs were assessed.
The ether charge was In the omission of
"contingent liabilities" from ono of the
four state reports. It was slcned by Mr.
Hoot as head consul , and by F. C ) . Bravton
as head clerk. This report was made in the
head clerk's ofllco. Tnero was no printed
blank in the report calling for contingent
liabilities , and the corn mil too to whom the
claims were referred did not report same
until three months after the dnto the report
was required. No secret was made of the
unpaid mlloago and per dlom which consti
tuted the principal part of the "contlnsiout

The other so-called charges bavo not boon
sustained , although several attempts havn
been tnado to do so In the unhappy quarrel
extending over a period of throe years.

is not pleasing to the old order and has , no
doubt , had much to do with tbo keeping
