PROFANITY IN BOYS.
It is a regrettable fact that
". profanity has become common
among the boys. It is not in
the least out of the ordinary,
where a group of boys of 10 to
15 . years is together upon the
street or in any open space to
play a game of ball, to hear them
using oaths that might suit the
tongues of the proverbial fish
wife or costermonger, but which
are shocking falling from the
. tongues of children of teiider
years. Of all stupid and silly
vices, profanity is one of the
worst and most abominable. A
simple statement of fact is much
stronger than any statement em
bellished with swearwords,, and
. no lie is made any the more be
lievable by being framed in pro
fanity. In fact, both truth and
falsehood are only wea'zened by
swearing and ttiking ( he Lord's
name in vain. Foul epithets
and comparisons are not con
.vincing, but are almost invar:
ably disgusting, except to those
making use of them. Profanity
among men seems to be grow-
' ing less and less, at least in public
places and among those who
' lay claim to decency and some
education. But the habit seems
to have firmly fixed itself upon a
great many of the boys, who
may imagine it mannish to use
profanity and smoke cigarettes.
The committee of prominent men in
a large of the arrangements for the
Sudson-Fulton celebration announced
ttie other day that the details for the
great festival had all been worked ont
and that little was left In the -way of
planning except to smooth out the
minor matters of the program.
The celebration is but a few months
off. It will begin on Saturday, Sept.
25, in New York city and will end two
weeks later in Troy. It is expected
to land a million persons in New York
in a weqk. It will take hundreds of
thousands up the Hudson, following
in the wake of the Half Moon and the
Clermont. It will make, it is hoped,
the name of Henry Hudson, the Eng
lishman who discovered New York's
great river in a Dutch ship, and the
name of Robert Fulton, who first ap
plied steam to the navigation Of that
river, well known to the children of
the public schools. It is expected to
bring to New York harbor and the
waters of the upper Hudson ships of
many nations and representatives of
most of the foreign governments.
While the time for preparation, was
short, much has been done. As a
member of the committee said the other
day at the headquarters of the celebra
tion commission, nothing remained to
do but to handle the details and "stir
up the enthusiasm.".,
"Never mind about the enthusiasm,"
another observed. "New York city
never gets enthusiastic until a week
before the event, while the forty-six
cities along the Hudson, which share
directly in the celebration, are almost
ready now to throw their hats into the
The celebration will not be a great
exposition or anything like it. No
great effort will be made by the com
mission to get crowds to New York
from every part of the country. They
will be invited, but no . advertising
campaigns as are usual In the case of
expositions -will be attempted. But the
people will attend from the outside; the
commission is assured of that. On the
other hand, every possible effort -will
be made, Is being made, to interest the
people of New York state and tempt
them to New York.
The celebration Is New Jersey's af
fair also, and her citizens are repre
sented in the commission.
All nations will also be invited to
send representatives and to participate
In the celebration. - Invitations have
already been sent to the state depart
ment at Washington to be transmitted
through the diplomatic staff to all gov
ernments of the world. Maritime coun
tries are invited to send ships as. well
as representatives of the government.
A source of satisfaction to the com
mission is the interest which the gov
ernment of Holland has manifested in
the affair. The reproduction of the
historic Half Moon is being made un
der the immediate Supervision of the
queen's aid-de-camp, Vice Admiral E.
G. Ellis. Progress with the work has
been rapid, the commission hears, and
the quaint little ship will be ready to
enter the Narrows on the day set; It
will be manned by a crew in the cos-,
tumes of the period of Henry Hudson.
Work has already been begun on the
reproduction of the Clermont, Fulton's
steamboat, which 200 years later
steamed up the Hudson. Secretary
Hall said that the Clermont would cer
tainly proceed up the stream under her
own steam, driven by an engine sim
ilar to Fulton's.
The Hudson-Fulton celebration will
be first of all educational. The first
two days of the celebration, Saturday
and Sunday, Sept. 25 and 26, will be
devoted to religious service, the com
mission declaring that it is unwilling
that the people should overlook the
"Divine guidance in the two great
events to be commemorated, one of
which opened up our state to modern
civilization and led to the founding of
New York city and the other of which
laid the foundation for the vast com
merce upon which the prosperity of
the city and state so largely depends."
The secular observance will begin on
Monday, Sept. 27; with the city and
harbor a-flutter with bunting and the
flags of all nations city, state and na
tional. The city will be gayly deco
rated, including thousands of private
dwellings not only in New York city,
but in every hamlet from Tottenville to
the head o!' the river. Early features of
the day will be a rendezvous of Amer
ican v.v.C foreign ve. sels in the harbor
and th? ni;trance at the Narrows of
observance of Wednesday, commemo
rative day, exercises will be held at
Columbia university. New York univer
sity, Cooper ITnlon. the University of
St. John and at other educational In
stitutions In New York and all over
the state as well. Aquatic sports and
contests are also to be features of this
day, with the oScial dinner to distin
guished guests to be given in the even
ing. It is expected that this will break
all records for attendance among New
York dinners, the size of the dining
room being the only limitation. More
than 500 guests from 'outside of New
York city are expected.
The military display will take place
on Thursday, the chief feature of
which will be a parade of 25,000 troops
of the regular army and the national
guard, with sailors from the ships in
the harbor. The naval parade is the
feature for Friday, when the ships, led
by the Half Moon and the Clermont,
will proceed up the river, shifting the
scene of festivities from New York to
Newburg. At the same time it is pro
posed a counter procession will leave
Albany for Newburg. where the two
parts of the celebration will unite, the
New York section returning in the
Saturday, the last day of the dis
tinctly New York city celebration, is
expected to be the greatest day of all
in popular interest. The carnival Is
planned for every one's enjoyment, but
particularly the children. The celebra
tion will culminate in the evening with
a carnival parade, consisting of mov
ing allegorical tableaux, all the nation
alities represented in New York taking
part. Members of the commission say
it will exceed in beauty and interest
the carnivals of Europe.
Brilliancy will be added to the gen
eral spectacle by the illumination o:"
the fleet and the public and private
buildings and by a pyrotechnic dis
play. AH the bridges across the East
river will blaze with fireworks through
out the evening, while at 9 o'clock a
chain, of signal fires will be lighted on
the mountain tops and other suitable
points along the whole river from its
source to New York bay.
The rest of the celebration will be
held in the cities up the Hudson, for
which attractive programs are now be
ing worked out, in most instances tak
ing the form of an old home week. '
DISPLAY OF HORSE INTELLECT
Proud Arab Protested Against
Use of a Spur.
Nipping his rider gently on the leg
as a protest against the use of a spur
in riding him, one of the beautiful lit
tle Arab horses at the Durland show
in New York the other night brought
down the house by a display of intelli
gence and independence worthy of his
breed. !In the class for cavalry char
gers each competitor was ' required to
show his trairi::g for army work b a

wheeling with his fore legs as a. pivot.
Every one of the entries was spurted
around like a willing slave until it
came to Max A. Mosle's bay stallion
Beaming Star. The moment he felt
the steel this high bred Arab, instead
of yielding to the spur, turned his head
and gave a knowing nip at the rider's
offending leg, as if to say, "Don't try
force if you want me to wheel for
you." Every spectator in the boxes
and balcony saw the move, and a wave
of applause greeted the striking exhibi
tion of equine character.
