The last one to appear at the window was Ella Flagg, the little milliner whose shop wa3 next door to the post office. Ella was a faded blond, with light blue eyes and a face that once had been vivaciously pretty, but now was sad and wistful. People had decided that Ella Flagg had begun to droop from the moment that Will Chandler left Littleford and went to California.

Once they had been close friends, but for many years they had been estranged. Ella's mute, questioning face appeared at the post office window. Myra nodded curtly, handed Ella a newspaper and a letter containing a circular. Then she turned her back and began to close up the office for the noon hour.

Tears streamed down the old man's face. He was weak from hunger .and exposure, and the death of his wife was a great blow.

The great man, great in all things, sat down by Alonzo saying pleasantly: "Well, uncle, what is it?" "Oh, Massa Linkum, praise de Lord dat I done lib to see dis day.

On Sunday, March 2nd, the Courier-Journwill issue its al "Marse Henry Edition" and every reading person in the State will doubtless find pleasure in reading the many tributes that will be justly paid to the most distinguished editor Kentucky has ever had. Nearing his seventy-nint- h birthday, in that issue the inaug ural installment of his memoire will appear. Mr. Watterson, while Editor of the Courier-Journa- l, impressed the reading public more profoundly than probably any other political writer in the entire country. As a prophet he rarely missed the events of the future. As a plain, forceful writer with the courage to back conviction and judgment he had no superior if, indeed an equal. Ripe in years, yet vigorous in intellect, his memoire will be a valuable con tribution to the great Journal whose policy and destiny he so eminently guided many years. Often out of harmony with party politicians, yet never shorn of power or prestige in Democratic councils, a grand old man, a statesman in reality, he deserves the flowere the press can and will bestow.

Myra might have told you that it was a bundle of suppressed letters and valentines which Ella Flagg had burned that memorable night when Myra made confession of her wrongdoing; but she kept her secret, and so did Ella, and Will Chandler refused to listen to her story because he was so glad and eager to hold Ella in his arms again.

Call on or address me at Co Washington, and the most interesting mansion in the United States, has had a continuous interesting history connected with it, aside from the associations with the first president of the United States and the first of the first ladies of the land. Colonel Washington, who had become proprietor of the paternal estates on the Rappahannock, acquired the magnificent domain of Mount Vernon upon the death of the widow of his half brother, Lawrence Washington, and shortly after his marriage he began to occupy it and it was his home up to the time of his death. Upon the death of Martha Washington, on May 22, 1802, about 4,000 acres of the Mount Vernon estate, Including the mansion, were inherited by Judge Bushrod Washington, the third child of John Augustine Washington Judge Washington was a justice of the Supreme court of the United States, and took up his residence at Mount Vernon, where he dispensed a liberal hospitality and kept intact his inherited landed estate to the time of his death. Judge Washington had no children, and following the example of his illustrious uncle, he provided for his wife during her lifetime, and then disposed of his estate to his nephews and nieces, giving specific directions and leaving the mansion house and J Mount Vernon farm proper, with restricted bounds, to his nephew, John Augustine Washington, and Mount Vernon was inherited by this John's son of the same name, from whom the home and 200 acres were purchased in 185G by the society which now con trols it and cares for it. The work of obtaining the necessary funds 200,000 for the purchase was started by Miss Pamela Cunnlnghain of South Carolina, who became the first regent. The vice regents each appointed state committees and the money raised was nearly all in dolL.r subscriptions. The greatest amount of money raised by any individual was the profits accruing from the lectures on Washington delivered in most of the large cities by Edward Everett. The last private owner of Mount Vernon was CoJ, John Augustine Washington. On the breaking out of hostilities between the states, Colonel Washington became a volunteer aid, with the rank of colonel, on the staff of Gen. Robert E. Lee, and was killed September 15, 1861, while conducting a reconnoissance on the turnpike along Elk Water river, Randolph county, West Virginia.

NEVER DAZZLED BY POWER with England, losing thereby most of his remnant of support in the house of representatives. Abuse culminated In the serious suggestion to impeach him. The constitution having for obvious reasons confined the treaty making power to the executive and the senate, Washington refused to grant the request of the house of representatives for the correspondence leading up to the treaty. The storm of indignation that followed did not spare even his personal character. "A Calm Observer" stated In a newspaper that Washington had stolen $4,750.

McClcl-la- n in the West Virginia campaign at the time, and in whose arms Colonel Washington expired. General Lee had established his headquartors at Brady's tollgate on the old state turnpike. The bluffs on the opposite side of the river from the old road had been heavily picketed by Federal soldiers for several miles, extending from Golonel Morrow's camp below quite up to Brady's gate. Owing to the mountainous character of the surrounding country, General Lee was imperfectly Informed in this regard, and directed Colonel Washington, with a detachment, to proceed by the new road to the forks at or near Brady's gate and then down the old road, cautioning him not to venture beyond a certain point. Washington, however, it appears, probably actuated by overzeal and anxiety to be able to report valuable information, went beyond the point Indicated. His movements along the entire route on the old road were, It seems, fully observed by the pickets, and after he finally started on his return a volley was delivered from the picket line and Washington was seen to fall from his horse, which galloped away with the retreating es- 5tjrl 5 year Old Kentucky Lady, Who Tells How She Was Relto After a Few Doses of KadorsvllIe, Black-Draugh- t. 4 Cynthia I doses of Seventy years of successful use h HIgSinbotham, of this town, says: "At made Thedford's say age, which Is 65, the liver does set act so well as when young.
