Historical Landmark That Has Been
Preserved to Posterity by Women.

Charlestown accent - on the "town,"
and pronounce it clearly, please is
within the "pie belt." We climb the
stately pile on Bunker Hill, attend the
exercises held by some historical asso
ciation, listen to the strains of that old
ode sung at the dedication of the mon
ument in 1S43, when Daniel Webster
delivered his famous oration ; behold
the parade sweep in majesty about the
foot of the historic pile and watch the
sun flash in golden gleams on the re
nowned "Sword of Bunker Hill." Like
many another historical landmark that
otherwise would have been obliterated.
Bunker Hill has been preserved to pos
terity by the devotion of women.
Where today are well kept turf, a

Due north to the very verge of the

in the vortex of cannon shot and the
mad rush of furious charges.
Anon the orchards were full of red
coated, 'white gait ered infantry the

great splashes of life blood and ' the
pastures strewn with patches of scar

had fallen to rise no more. To the

posted amid brick kilns and clay pits,

The British lines continued; to charge.
"Don't fire until you see the whites of
their eyes!" The : word "passed along
the line of set faces and leveled guns.
A moment later hoarse cries, "Fire,
fire!" rang out. A crash of triple vol
leys and the rattle of deadly,file firing
followed. The powder failed. The pro
vincials broke away, pursued by Plt
cairn's marines. For the moment our
fathers' hope of victory was over.
Yes, visit Bunker HilL Look upon
a monument erected to cherish the
memory of a defeat that brought suc
cess, for victory crowned the vanquish
ed that day. The day set apart to
commemorate the battle of Bunker
Hill is exclusively a. Charlestown rholi
day, but far wider than Boston's "tri
mountains" spreads the spirit of Bun
ker Hill throughout a great nation
christened on that day in the red

Lake Champlain's Monument.
- The monument to commemorate the
discovery of Lake Champlaln by Sam
uel de Champlain Is now spoken of as
likely to be erected on Split Rock
point, says a Burlington (Vt) dispatch,
The lake at that point is only about
half a mile wide, but just to the north
gradually broadens to its greatest
width, fourteen miles. Those who fa
vor the Split Rock site point out the
fact that the monument. If erected
there, would be in full view of all
craft traversing the lake north or
south and , that a light placed at the
top of the shaft would be visible for
more than fifty miles In both direc
tions." - '

.'. One . 'of the i novel feature of : the
liueenslioro bridge carnival in New
iork. during the -week of June 12-19
will Le a 'ciiiiue Marathon race. This
is the first time that this will be tried
and will be open to trained dogs onfy.
The affair will be under the direction
of Philo G. Andersen,, the well known
dog .fancier of Union. 'Course, ' N:; Y.
The race will be from the Manhattan
end of the Queensboro bridge to some
point on the Hoffinan boulevard near
Gleudale, N. Y: The lists are open to
field dogs and hounds. There will be
several contests for trained dogs.
There will be also a race for the booby
prize by dogs not thoroughly trained.
The dogs will have blankets with
numbers so that they can be distin
guished in the race. At first the com
mittee Was doubtful about the possi
bility of carrying on such a race, but
several experts on dogs have satisfied
it that the thing can be accomplished.
In speaking of the matter Mr. Ander
sen said: 1 :
"Dogs can be trained to race as well
as horses, and more so, because they
do not need any jockeying. Some of
the most exciting coursing events of
this kind have been held right on Long
Island, and at one time a good deal of
moaey has been put up on the contest
ants. It will be great sports to see
from 100 to 130 dogs- go streaking
across the big bridge.
"The races can be made more excit
ing by interspersing them with hurdle
and other obstructions. To see these
dogs leaping fences and ropes would
add to the excitement and novelty of
the affair. This race will Interest the
owners of all thoroughbreds and espe
cially the owners of field dogs.
"I have sent notices to about 350
owners, and all of them have signified
their willingness to enter the races. It
will be a question of selection. Each
race should be Jimitedto about fifty
dog's at the maximum. If there are
more than that number the dogs are
apt to run in packs, and that would
spoil the race. Owners of dogs as far
west as Los ' Angeles have signified
their intention " of entering their animals."-
