The celebration to be held at St.
Johus July 4th is scheduled to be n
decided success. This is to be otic
of its kind not soon forgotten.
Every effort is being exercised at
this time to accomplish that which
wc are striving (or, success, and by
the cooperation of all, wc will no
doubt achieve greater things, ns
step by step through the ages
which have marked the progress of
the world, we dud that man has
moved onward onward and upward
through the comradeship of frater
nity and cooperation. The homo
genity of such actions in human
life encompasses the strength
which makes for intellectual ad
vancement, social uplift nud the ur
gent desire to greater achievements.
Man cannot live unto himself nlonc,
ami this truism finds fruitage and
realization, not only In the realties
of life, but in the attainments
thereof. Iu this spirit, exercising
the privileges of extending the
same precautions towards the frail
ties of others that wc may expect
for ourselves, as well as our mission
to eticouriu'o a more intimate ac
quaintance and closer brotherhood,
that will wield a tremendous and
powerful influence for general good.
From every standpoint we must
strive to make ourselves deserving
of the popular favor to be enjoyed.
The best satisfaction is the experi
ence of the mau who, at some sac
rifice, has done that which benefits
his fellow, nud the best acknowl
edgement nud reward for such an
act is to be found iu the sincere ap
preciation nf the favor on the part
of the recipient. At this time it Is
our desire to remind you of the fact
that our baud is progressing nicely,
but a shortage ot instruments has to
be contended with; and, again a
general appeal for more numbers
in t lie baud to take part for the
Fourth of July event, especially.
The baud nt this time consists of
some 20 pieces or more, but saxo
phone, clarinet nud cornet players
arc wanted. If you can play an in
strumcut of any kind and have none
of your own, then make it known
to us through our secretary nt 'Mil
South Jersey street. lie will gludly
take up the mattei with you at
once iu order that you may partici
pate In this good work. The baud
will practice Monday and Wednes
day evenings at the St. Johns skat
ing rink, where it would be possible
foryou to communicate with the
