Canton did herself prond this year on Independence day and the Fourth passed 1' off without a single drunken man being seen on the streets and without an arrest being made. Perhaps this was because the small percentage of our citizens who do all the drinking had gone to other towns to quench their thirst, but whatever the cause.

Last Sunday i morning McClanghlin was passing along his milky way and stopped near the house of John Clough, on Mud street. Mr. (\lough'slittle tive-year-olddanghter | was out in the yard and approached the ' big dog, putting ont her hand to caress ] the animal. The big brute gave a snarl i and snapped at the child'c face, burying its fangs in her left cheek. The cheek was bitten through in five places and one lower front tooth was broken out. Dr. F. F. Williams cauterized and I dressed the wounds, and although the little girl's face is badly swolen. there is no danger of serious results following. For tilt* HtMiettt o f tile (Mill FelloWM.

Bragdon expects to join his family here at his father's home about August first, to spend a month's vacation park fronting the main street was black with people, the sidewalks were crowded and the hotel balconies thronged. From every window fair ladies looked down upon the lively scene below. Everyone was happy, patriotic and perspiring. The red lemonade stands did a rushing business and so did the beer joints. The immortal declaration of Thomas Jefferson was read about nine o'clock from a stand in the park, by the Hon. M. R. Hackett. The stand had been bnilt smack up to the edge thronged and noisy street, and the tu- mult never ceased for a moment. The bulk of the crowd paid no attention to the orator but kept right on celebrating, punctuating and emphasizing his ar - raignment of tyrrany with the pop of the festive cannon cracker and the screech of the quavering kazoo. One horny handed son of toil from Macomb i -p^, (jmton was heard to ask, \What's that feller ; Sherwood, (.' out there i n the park sellin', anyhow?\ I Belmont Prince, C Just a s the silver-tongued orator was , jf^u'Kf'kiy' 10 ,?^ pledging his life, his fortune and his! ' Antworp... sacred honor, the OxBow Band came up , Watertown and drowned out the Bpeech with the strains of \Down Went McGinty.\ Then came the event of the day, the grand parade, which was a feature of which (louverneur may well feel prond. It was A LONO AND IMPOHINO PltOCRHHlOX, and went off without a hitch or a halt. First came Ciouvernenr's tall and wil- lowy chief of police, Frank Harder, rid- ing a skittish horse and leading a plat- toon of mounted polioemen. Next was fine-looking young man wearing a along with their seductive music. If it hadn't been for Canton the attendance would have been slim, indeed, for all Cantonians love a horse race and the county seat's entire five hundred were on hapd. The two bands stationed themselves at each end of the grand stand, and had the crowd between them and right at their mercy. They each had a repertoire of about five pieces, and the way in which these selections were twisted about so that none was immediately repeated was anrprising and interesting. Every time that the Edwards horn blowers would hush to get breath the OxBow boys would break loose; and the crowd would shift the cotton into the other ear. It was their last chance to blow themselves for a year to come, and everyone was glad to have them enjoy the Fonrth and bore it with heroic fortitude. In the judges stand were Starter L. A. Sewell, of Oswego, and Judges E. H. Gilbert, of Canton, and Dr. Barnett and F. A. Weed, of Pots- dam. J. Leslie Craig, of Canton, was clerk. THE BREEDERS' RAt'Efc | x wen ' went off in a manner that reflected the j °\ of the i highest credit upon the officers of the Association, who&e seventh annnal Fourth of July race meeting it was. There were four events and all were well \contested. Following is the summary: TWO-YEAR-OLB RACE—TROTTERS. pretty : GAN^N'slayiCTi^ijrrrH •The, Small Boy Kicks «p a Uttle Xpliie, 'butrth«'iie»fc«if the Town Slumlx-m. The glorious Fotjrfcbv-was .observed; here iu a most serene and quiet manneT. -Aaide from the occasional bursting of a diminutive cracker on Ihe streets and the display of a-few fl$gsand a little bunting; there was nothing to distin- guish the day from any other—in fact, it was more quiet than a common day. Everybody who could get away went to Gouverneur or Ogdensbnrg, or to other towns where celebrations -were in pro- gress; many rowed up the river with their babieB and lunch baskets and en- joyed a quiet outing, while others drove to'Pyrites and passed the day be- neath the shade of the groves along the river bank. In the evening there were many private displays of fireworks, here and there around the village. The day passed off without an accident of any kind, and goes on record as the quietest Fourth ever known in Canton. The Park Street Juvenile Band were very much in evidence that day, and serenaded the town with several exquisite selections, passing the hat for backsheesh at frequent intervals. The members of this small but noisy aggre-1 gation o f musical talent ar e Willie I Sims, fifer; Robbie Squires, drummer,; and Melford Brown, Jr., bellophonist. They have a uniform of bright scarlet caps and jackets and a great partiality for ice cream soda. The usual Fourth of July celebration of the professors of the Theological School and their families was held in Fisher' Memorial Hall, on College Hill, during the afternoon. The ladies fur- nished a most sumptuous banquet and speeches were made by Prof. L. B. Fisher, Prof. Leslie A. Lee. Rev. Dr. Forbes, Prof. J. Clarence Lee, Dr. I. M. Atwood, Dr. J. S. Lee and Mrs .T. C. Lee. It was a very pleasant and pa- triotic\ though quiet celebration. j About eight o'clock that evening there j was a little flutter o f genuine excite- ment. Herbie Roulston, the youth who j celebrated last Fourth by firing a toy cannon off through a plate glass widow, got in his- funny work again. This time he fired a sky rocket up towards the stars. It went up quite a ways and burst in a lovely shower of light, and then, like the cat of ancient history, the stick came back. It dropped in a pile of loose straw and coinpost, at the rear of jthe horse barn back of the j Servis house, on Miner street, and in a' moment it had a Fourth 'o July bonfire ' started. This patriotic, demonstration was squelched with a few pails of water, and to make assurance doubly sure the firemen came out and turned a hose on the smouldering heap and fairly drowned it. Throughout the evening sky rockets : and Roman candles occasionally rushed heavenward from different quarters of! the village, and pin wheels sputtered and red fire glared here and there iu lawns and yards, where private pyro- technic displays were in progress. Just as the returning celebrators from Gouv- erneur and Ogdensbnrg came thronging up the street from the eleven o'clock train, R. B. Dezell gave a fine display of I fireworks in front of his store on Main I street. This closed the festivities of i i the day.

A Batch of Drunk and Disorderly (irlxt IK Ground Out Saturday. Saturday was a field day at Police Jus- tice Squires' court, and quite a grist of drunk and disorderly's were mn through the justice mill. Some were not ground very fine, for the Police Justice is a merciful man, and the merciful man is merciful to his beasts. Reuben Myers, from \over the rail- j road track,\ was the first to march np in Policeman Colby's clutches and face the majesty of the law, Rube and some of his compatriots who dwell over across the track have the idea that they can get drnuk and make that section of the corporation howl whenever they 1 feel inclined. On Friday evening Rube , was around the depot when the eleven i o'-clock train came in and was well rad- dled and very noisy. Policeman Colby told him to go quietly home and not make any more noise, and all would be well. Rube started, but when he got ont on Mud street he gave vent to a string of ribald howls that made the stars iu the milky way fairly wobble. Colby started after him with the result that he now languishes in the hotel de Smith, on a six-day sentence. James Kelley, a hard looking old chap who had no hands to speak of and who disgraced a G. A. R. button, was the next applicant for a trip through the mill. He has been stopping for some I time past with George Main, out on tbe Gardiner Butterworthfarm, and Friday night he was singing and reeling around Main street in a most jqyf nlly maudlin condition. He got ten days at. the county Bastile. That old police court habitue, Gib Graham, came next. Gib was drunk Friday night, \drnnker than a biled owl,\ as he admitted when arrested. His case was adjourned to give him a chance to nerve a sentence in the hay field and earn the needful wherewith to pay a fine.

It took a man with a grip like grim death to accomplish the feat, for the affair weighed one hnndred and seventy- five pounds and the cross bar was as smooth as glass. This herculean toy belonged to a young Canadian Hercules named William Couture, and in the I . evening he performed a number of genuinely wonderful feats of strength with it, being able to raise it above his head with one hand and to lift it by his teeth with the popular Dickey Westnrn and to raise it from the country and Canada. The Ogdensbnrg | c *r surmounted by Daily Journal gives the following brief i THIRTEEN LIVING PICTTJBES sketch of his life: He was born in Lon- j representing the thirteen original states. ticient for the home trade, about 12 sitting upon it, „ „ cents being the ruling price here and ground with one finger with equally t*aH»i from i:i to U cents |n the city markets, prominent citizens seated astride it.

His parents wished him to become a lawyer, but he passed under the influence of friends who urged him to enter the ministry. Coming to America he became a friend of Henry Ward Beecher, and was or- dained as a Congregational clergyman. From Congregationalism he passed to TJnitarianism and, achieving a reputa- tion as a pulpit orator, was called to the pastorate of Unity church, Chicago, as the successor of Rev. Robert Collyer. Here his brilliancy and lack of ortho- doxy soon attracted attention, and he I was for a time the most widely discussed I minister in America. He resigned his pastorate, and six months later began his career as a n actor. His success was instantaneous. He appeared iu most of the prominent towns of America, and then with a company of twenty- five and a hundred tons of scenery be- f an to play his way around the world. ,. ^ -r* ! t _ tr„„„l„l,„ Ana .

These thirteen white gowned, gilt crowned young ladies reclined at the base of a pedestal on which was seated the Goddess jof Liberty, personated by Miss Chandler, and gazing at the en- chanting scene orie could understand how \ to die for liberty is sweet\ as well as the affection which each feels for his state. Right behind the tableau car came that famous musical organization, I the OxBow Band. They wore a showy uniform consisting of gilt-laced maroon colored coats and sky-blue pants, and Bert Fell did the drum major act for them with great eclat. He wore a plug hat and \a smile that almost melted the hearts of , the five New England states on the tableau car ahead. The 'Middle states flirted boldly with the band boys, and everyitime a fan fluttered some one skipped a note. It was hard on the crowd but strictly in accordance with the doctrine of state rights.,.
