0 ripples of Pdtomac's stream,
Break gently where the tread
Of thousands press the hallowed sod
Above our greatest dead;
Mount Vernon, Freedom's dearest shrine
Guard well thy sacred trust,
Locked in thy loyal heart of hearts
Ye keep the Patriot's dust.
1 see him glide among the huts
That dot the cheerless gorge
The Joshua of a struggling band,
The Man of Valley Forge;
Where'er he goes his smile illumes
The shades that thickly lie,
And all who hear his words resolve
With him to do or die.
The pilgrim comes from lands enslaved,
Beyond the restless sea,
To meditate where sleeps the man
Who taught men to be free;
The glitter of the sword he drew;
Makes bright the world today,
And hands unborn will crown its hilt
With laural and with bay.
He needs no granite shaft to tell
Of glorious actions done;
His monument? the freest land
That lies beneath the sun !
Today with swelling pride we seek
The banquet board once more,
And drink to him whose fame is far
Beyond Virginia's shore.
He is not thine, Mount Vernon, though
Upon thy sacred breast,
Wrapped in the mantle Glory weaves.
In peace he takes his rest;
Tlie voice of Liberty proclaims :
"He is my honored son."
And Fame with lofty pride proclaims:
"The World's one Washington."

No Nation or
peoplo over bad
a richer legacy
havo in their
ideal of Washing
ton. Great as was

as were his cerv
ices to tTio coun
wao not a deinl-god nor eron a man
ef genius. Dut ho did possess a
KnluB for honesty and patriotism and
was the Incarnation of common sense.
His mothor. after reading a letter
Cram him during the Revolutionary
war which convoyed good news, Hald:
Qeorgo generally carries through
anything he undertakes." Mrs. U. S.
Grant onco said, referring to her hus
band's determination and porslstance:
"He Is a very obstinate man." Grant
was not a genius any more than
Washington, but both men bad the
gift of success.
It is well for the American people
that they have idealized Washington,
and it Is to be hoped that they may
never lower nor change their ideal,
and yet he was very human. As a
young man and even after hin mar
riage ho was very fond of fox hunting.
He could get very angry on tit occa
sions and sometimes swore. Ho drank
a gonerous glass of wine every day
at dinner and allowed his negro but
ler and cook each a bottlo of beer a
day. Nearly thirty years ago a friend
ly biographer wrote:
"Eighty years havo now passed
sinco tho death of George Washing

In some degreo by a liaro of eulogy
and tradition. He nan heon so uni
formly extolled that somo of our
young men tell us with n yawn, that
thoy aro tired of hearing Arlstldcs
called "The Just." Ho has been
edited into obscurity, like a Greek
play. Where tho gonial and friendly
soldier referred to one of blH cher
ished friends as "Old Put." a respect
able editor, devoid of humor, has sub
stituted "General Putnam;" until, at
length, a lover of the man haB to de
fend him against tho charge of pep
Washington himself nevor pretend
ed to be more than an average man,
though all his contemporaries knew
he was. All that ho claimed was to
be perfect master of himself and to
use such powera as God had given
him the best he knew how. Once us
a procession In his honor passed
through the streets of a city he heard
a little boy exclaim: "Why, father,
General Washington Is only a man!"
He looked with thoughtful Interest on
the child and patting him on tho head
replied: "That's all, my little fellow,
that's all," He was one of the most
dignified men that ever lived, yet one
of the most modest One finds pleas
ing evidence of his common human
tty In the fact that while quite young
he foil easily In love and wrote verses
and r.entlmcntal verses at that.
When ho was twelve years old, short
ly after the death of his rather, he
was sent to school at Fredericksburg
after promising his elder brother to
bo "steady." It was a mixed school
of boys and girls and one of his
nchoolmatos, a cotmln, said In later
life that while George was remark
ably studious he was also fond of
"romping with one of the largest
girls; this wnn bo unusual that It ex
cited no llttlo comment among the
other lads." It was while at this
Bchool that Goorgo wrote the follow

that name or to somo fair Frances liv
ing In Alexandria, where tho boy was
well acquainted There Is reason to
bollove that young Washington was
as suBceptlblo as tho average young
mnn of the present day. When nbout
seventeen years old he fell In love
with a young lady, whom he refers
to In a letter to a friends as "your
Lowland beauty." and aayw going Into
company simply revives his former
passion for her He adds:
"Were I to llvo more rotlred from

For four or five years Elljnh seems
to have retired from public life. He
was practicing the lesson he hnd
learned on Horeb. He was at work,
but In n different way. His stormy
woric waB not In vain. That plowed
the ground, and now was the time for
Howlng the Bced. Tho seven thousand
hidden believers were permitted to
como Into the open. Persecution had
ceanrd. Others came out and Joined
them. The prophets hnd no longer to
be hidden In n cave by Obadlah.
Elijah encouraged and waa at the
head of tho organized communities or
schools of the prophets which existed
as far back as Samuel. In his Inst
Journey ho visited the "sons of the
prophets" at Bethel and Jericho, and
1b spoken of as their head master.
From these centers and from the
schools at Gllgal, Hamah and Glbenh
they exerted a strong lnfluenco and
their appearance at nny particular
spot wns orten the signal for the out
break of a contnglouB religious fervor.
Theso settlements may bo described
as training schools for religious pur
poses. Elijah was thus educntlng the
people In the truo religious life. He
was working In accordance with the
still small voice of God.
Elijah's Buccess was In finding and
training EIIbIui to bo prophet In his
Btead, training under these newer In
fluences and methods. Tho great
prophet, so lonely hitherto, hnd found
a friend. If there was one thing Ell
Jab needed to mellow him, It was that!
Naboth, a native of Jezreel, had for
his vineyard an ancestral possession.
Wo learn that Naboth wan a worship
er of Jehovah, and In spite of the per;
sccutlon of tho prophets did not
shrink from making it known to the
king by his language. Here was an
example of one who had not bowed
the knee nor given n kiss to Baal.
Jezebel coveted this vineyard.
Jezebel said to Ahab, Arise, take
possession of the vineyard. And Ahnb
went. Tho Septunglnt adds that he
rent his clothes and put on sackcloth,
ns though shocked nt his crime and
anxious to prove Ills Innocence to his
own conscience nnd to the people. But
the hypocrisy of tho act was shown
by IiIh willingness to accept the fruits
of tho crime. This mourning for tho
meanB but acceptance or tho Tact
would not be In disaccord with Ahab's
Covetousnesa Is "a root or nil kinds
or evil." It 1b tho desire, the motive
that lies In the heart, "the prolific
mother or all sins, tho cockatrice's egg
from which breaks forth tho viper and
the fiery flying serpent." It la not an
awful thought that tho deadly sin of
Judas nnd of Ananias sprang from
greed? "Still us or old, man by him
seU is priced; ror thirty pieces Judas
sold hlmaeir not Christ!"

The one PBscntlal cure Is a change

character. It Is to give your heart to
God, to consecrate your whole being
to him, to love and obey him, to strlvo

kingdom. Love Is tho cure of covet

appeared. Servants and the children
of tho house searched everywhere,
asked questions nt all places where
It was thought posslblo tho dog might
be In hiding, but to no avail, and tho
anlmnl was llnally given up for lost
nnd there was deep mourning In tho
nursery. One day recently the wom

"Why, he ran Into our house n few

CURED HER BABY OF ECZEMA
"I can't tell In words how happy tho
word 'Cutlcura sounda to mo, for It
cured my baby of Itching, torturing
eczema. It first came when oho waa
between three nnd four weoka old,
appoarlng on bar head. I used every
thing imaginablo and had ono doc
tor's bill after nnother, but nothing
cured it. Then tho eczema broko out
so badly behind her ear that I really
thought her ear would como off. For
monthB I doctored it but to no avail.
Then it began at her noao and her
eyes were nothing but soreB. I had to
keep her In a dark room for two
weeks. Tho doctor did no good, so I
stopped him coming.
"For about two weeks I had used
Cutlcura Soap for her every day,
then I got a box of Cutlcura Ointment
and began to ubo thnt In a week
thero was a marked Improvement In
all I used two cakca of Cutlcura Soap
and ono box of Cutlcura Ointment and
my baby waa cured of tho sorea. This
was last November; now her hair Is
growing out nicely and sho has not a
scar on her. I can not pralso Cutl
cura enough, I can tako my child any
where and people aro amazed to see
her without a sore. From tho time
he was four weeks old until buo waa
three years sho was never without tho
terrible eruption, but now, thanks to
Cutlcura, I havo a well child." (Sign
