FITLY, Eighty millions of people scattered throughout the United States on the Fourth, celebrated the one hundred and thirty-first anniversary of the Bigniug of the Declaration " of Inde pendence. Though there were in cluded in these many millions, men and women in all walks of life, all day, and though there were many who toiled on unceasingly, yet they felt in some way the spirit of the day aslit was communicated to them by others. Whether in the busy city or in the quiet country places, this feeling of gratitude for a na tion's history and heroes, joy in its independence, proud of its present greatness and happy over its out look for the future, is manifest. " Every city in the country, aud near y every town and village holds its celebration annually and they are always events for which the public leave business and very thing else if they are true Ameri cans to join in the Bport, no mutter how undignified it may seem to the dignified and unpatriotic. The fourth was fittingly celebra ted in Bandolph county. Iu every section elaborate preparations had been made and Old Glory floating on the breezes from both business houses and residences told of tbe spirit of true patriotism which burned in the hearts of the entire populace. The Fourth at WorthvlHe. Independence Day at Worthville was all that could be desired, as the day itself was a perfect picnic day, and the program was carried out without a single jar to mar the pleasure of anyone. , , ' A large Reception Committee, un der the leadership of Messrs. J. E. Williamson and J. L. Wrenn, met the speakers, Col. John 8. Cunning ham, of Roxboro, and Mr. Archi bald Johnson, of Thomasrille, at the Bans' leman station and escotted ' them to Riverview Pack. They were joined on tbe way by the Franklinville band and the Worth ille school children bearing flags. The program was opened by pray er by Rev. R. L. Melton, fellowed by a few remarks by Dr. C. C. Hub bard, who acted as "Master of Cere monies. Several school children took part in an interesting and instructive exercise showing- the flags which have becu used by our nation from the discovery by Colum bus to the adoption of the present flag. Mr. Johnson was then introduced and made a twenty minutes, talk in every way suited to the day. He was followed by Col. Cunningham who entertained the audience for half an hour by a talk which was a pleasant mixture of patriotism, hu mor and good fellowship. ' After an intermission for dinner, the crowds again gathered to witness the boat races. The first heat was rowed by M. J. My rick and Eli Hayes, the second by W. P. Craven and Yancey Kennedy, and the third by M. J. Myrick and W. P. Craven, who were the winners in the first two. The final heat was won by 'W. P. Craves. This was followed by a game of base ball on the new ball grounds. The program was interspersed with music by the band throughout the day. ' At eight o'clock at night a play wtB given by several of tbe Worth ville young people, and wa thor . oughly enjoyed by a large tff well behaved audience. While all the actors did their parts well, we heard several people speak in high terms of the goou acting of Missed Myrtle Johnsou7 'and Jennie Winslow and Mr. J. A. Withers. The audience was not so large as f eeve'al years ago, when ours wai tbe only celebration held in the county, but a big crowd was here, neverthe less, and all were delighted with the Park, which is an ideal place for things of this kind. The thanks of the people of the town are due, and freely rendered to Mr. J. E. Wil liamson, wbde good will and gener osity has led him to provide this pleasure ground for the empkoyees f the Worth Manufacturing Co. Great Day at Randleman.

Following the parade, which termini' ed at the spea kers stand fully 5000 people assembled to witness the program. THE I'HOiRAM: Music 1; the Band. Prayer by Rev. C M. Camplrel!.
