It Is said that Washington selected tho place
when; liia body now lies and left Instnictiona
that one day tho change of sepulcher should bo
made. The oak which guiuded tho liist grave
must have been standing for tlueo centuiles.
The view from the placo is Inspiring enough to
enkindle the ejes of a dead man. The viow from
the now tomb Is line in its way, but it is as noth
ing to the grand sweep of tlver, hilltops and for
ests which naves before tho oyo from the place
whete Washington slept for 30 years.
Hundreds of visitors go to Mount Vernon
dnlly. They peer li.to tho tomb nnd then
htralghtwn go lo the house. There Is an Inter
Cbt, of course, which must attach to any of the
belongings of Washington, but It seems to be u
legitimate matter of regiot that of the thousands
who go to Mount Veiuon the Inteiest in tho mir
ror which Washington used when ho shnved nnd
in the spoon with which ho ate his porridge, If
ho ate porridge, la far gicater than in the forest
trees under which ho walked and In tho gaiden
whote hedges of fotmal cut wore planted with
his own hand.
Indoors at Mount Veinon over) thing Is dead;
outdoors eveiy thing la nllve. Tho forest and
garden are Instinct with Washington; tho con
tents of the houfce are as dust.
There la a real Interest, however, in the
library of tho old homo. In tho main tho books
are dimply copies of tlioso which wero on tho
shelves tn Washington's tlmo. Tho oilgln.Ua, as
1 understand it, are iu several Ubraiica of the

We'd like to write a little rhymo
about tho steady man, who keeps on
pegging all tho time and does tho
best he can; the iiinu who early goes
to woik and doesn't get home till late;
nor ever try to shirk In order to be
great. There are Home fellows who
will try to do their business tricks
and have a linger in the pie of city
politics; they try to put on lota of
style and play a heavy role, and in
a little bit o while you find them In

his system I admire; ho has no wild
desire to plnce more Irons in the llio!

"Not Infrequent rays of unconscious
humor illumine the otherwise Impos
sible stories that come to my desk
from amateurs," says a reader for one
of the magazines. Recently I chanced
upon tills choice bit:
"'John, the husband, and Grace, the
wife, ate on together iu silence There
was Indubitably an ill feeling between
them. The husband devoured a plate
ot soup, half a fish, an entree or two
a piece of roast beef, together with
a sweet, without ever once opening
his mouth.' "
