saved and all turned to saving Ladies Hall Tho wind blowing toward tho Hall made it seem for a few minutes as if all would go but the wind shifted Iud tho crowd worked and soon bad tho fi re uearesttho Hall checked and kopt under control until the frame of tho barn fell and reduced the danger at that point In tho mean time the alihory near the barn on the west caught on fire but was saved by prompt work Soon all that was loft of the barn was a pilo of smoking timbers lying in the teller amid piles of rubbish of all kinds The origin of the fire is about as follows During the winter the barn is used asa storehouse for various garden products and other property of the College To keep time vegetables from freezing during a cold snap a coaloil stove is used In tho barn was a quantity of straw and it is aida barrel of oil In some way the straw and oil ignited and almost instantly the whole interior of the barn was burning fiercely Soon time flames broko out and in about 40 minutes all was over The loss is estimated at between 1500 and 2000 as there wits stored iu the barn considerable furniture belonging to Pros Frost tho office furoaturo of tho Commercial School and several vo hiclos two of which burned A largo crowd of students and citizens gathered at tho first alarm and the usual number of idiots was present Not content with being idlo they woro at all times crowding near those who atom land at work mind hindered as munch as possible As a result one group received several buckets of water all over them be fore they would got out of the way Among those prominent as

doom the one great flawless dignified hero of the nation if not of the world A hero means one who is a brave gentleman all the time Says Gen Washingtons diary June 30 1735 Dined with only Mrs Wash ington which I believe is the first instance of it since my retirement from public life That was 18 months after coming home from his victorious wars Think of the horror of it For all that time the inquisitive hero worshipers had been dropping in just about dinner time to say now wonderful really Mr Washington It makes me quite shudder to think of really and truly it does Ohl must kiss your hand And poor George would have to be polite and ask them to stay for dinher How cozy that little dinner on June 30 1785 must have been how homelike at last when Gen Washington raised his glass and said Martha my love your health That ribbon becomes you vastly You look too young for a bat tered old hulk like me George said Mrs Wathlngton dont dare talk like that You a battered whatdld you sayl The Meal Why not n young man in old Virginia has your figure Then she got up and came round the table and kissed him the cupbearers having withdrawn and they walked to gether in the gentle summer afternoon and his excellency said as he gathered tome cherries Why cant people al ways leave us in peace Martha How nice this is Lets go and look at the pigs There were heaps of birthday pres eats awaiting his excellency and all the jolly black house servants wished him long life and happiness and a table was weighed down with 5000 birthday poems from the 5000 most promising poets in the country and there was a heap of newspapers with marked editorials in his praise nndI every man who had ever invented anything from a clockwork clambaker a most curious and amusing contrivance to a baseball sent the general one and every man woman and child who hind written a book even if not published sent a copy to George Washington Yeti everybody sent him a present and wished him joy and most of them wished something for themselves in re turnCertainly George Washington should have been happy with all these beautiful costly things but somehow he slipped to the attic and left all the gifts and looked at the little hatchet his father had given him years and years ago and he saM as he put it back When was I happier then or now Then the visitors came very old men who told him he could never hope to live as long ns they for they had ccnttltu tlons like iron and he must enjoy himself before It was time to give him n state funeral and very old ladles who had known his father and called him Georgie and very young misses who trembled so they could hardly utter the words of congratulation they hdlearned by heart And there was one ponyhenringand pushed straight nt the hero crying eolnpymenshappy want to know grandpa says youre a hero and I want to Ic a hero too when Im rrowell up Cant I please Grand pa says not to talk nonsense It isnt nonsense is it general Cant I be a hero when Im groomed big DIg Washington stooped and lifted the child did you ever know a hero that didnt love children 1nnd kissed his check and whispered None of us can be great or good without Gods blessing To be a hero you must be good as great So pray first and always that God will make you good The little enthusiast looked deep anti prove Into the generals eyes suddenly kissed the kind mouth hard said I will and sliding down rode off with IIIsgroomahn sn better man for that caressing whisper Vhcn it was still long from the stnte ly festival dinner George Washington slipped away front the crowd at the Louse and wandered off by himself though with great dread that some pnlc young man should jump out from a bush and fire n birthday ode at him Now he was off Mount Vernon farm and by n Inne away from the main road In the corner of the lane in a most de serted newlycleared spot about 50 feet back in the bushes was tho new est of tiny cottages with unpainted walls and rough Umbers nnd n newly lnid out garden at the back George Washington looked from the wood through which he was wandering and pausedThat was not there when I had time before the war to run about said he Who can they be Theyre not Africans Oh not For front the house came u bright voice that was certainly Virginian Now Jaok said the voice you must not be so lazy because there Is ever to much to do before father comes homeI aint lazy Martha said another voice unmistakably the shrill one of u boy Im doing what dad said Im looking after you anti protecting youOh Jack do you call eating rais ins nnd sitting on the table protecting- me ell It Is If anyone was to come round now to hurt you even King George himself wouldnt I be ready to kill lIm Well said Martina with n laugh I dont expect King George this morn ing Our George bless him HoorayHas Mil cars Rut there Is work to be done I dont see any You are looking only nt the raisins WHAT A MAN YOUD How C do you expect to eat if you dont work And how am I to get supper for daddy in the evening Ob I have thought of that Ill go fishing and youll fry them Oh and who would protect me while youre fishing please You can come too If you wont always call out Mind jou dont fall in Be good Jack and fetch me some water from the well and chop a little firewoodThe had been listening nnd chuckling Always the sound of chil drens voices brightened his eyes Now lie suddenly stepped up to the open door of the little new house and bowed lie was dressed very plainly for his muddy walk and his boots were spattered and he looked quite plain and homely He saw a neat little woman of 12 or 13 busy in her kitchen and n pert brightcyrd snubnosed young rogue of seven sitting on thin table I wish you good morning maam said the general Good morning sir said tho maiden with n frightened courtesy Halloa sold Master Pert seizing n carving knife Where did you cone from Are you a friend of King George I am n true Vouic not an KhgllshmanV I am Youre not a royalist 1JleenUFl if you were Id have to kill you thats all Be quiet Jock youre very rude said his sister reprovingly Please nr hes only a little boy null some times theyre a little vexing but hes n good boy Is there anything I can do for you sir1 If it were not too much trouble n glass of water Oh certainly said the willing housewife and ran off Up came Jack ami stood very erect In front of the vliiltor

Youve n big nose A boy hit me on the nose once and It blcedcd awful I guess your noso would bleed lots wouldnt it Oh what a nice chain Wont you show me your watch Oh what n nice watch will you show me the In sideAfter said the general with his nrm gently round the childafter weve given up thinking of going fish Ing and brought the water for sister and chopped some wood Ta looked quite startled and turned red The big kind yet firm eyes looked Into Matter 1crtn and Master Pert stuffed Ills knuckles Into the corners fool tooH nltl the general come Ill help you So the Rrayoyed pleasant fneed lit tle girl coming back found the father of his country breaking up wood at n great rate while her little brother was laughingly gathering chips Oh sir said Martha with amaze what n man youd be around the she was still more amazed at the effect her words had upon the stranger who dropped the ax and threw his head back with quite a roar of laughter until for the pure happi ness of it little Jack and Martha laughed too I like you said Jack grabbing tho generals hand nt they went into the house Come and see us often and lil shrw you vhcrc the best fishing place s My father would be glad to wel come you sirsaki the courtly maid en lids business takes him away just now almost every day but In the spring I thank you kindly said the gen eral And us I live near here I hope I shall be friends with rny

that N a happy coincidence said the general because it Is also my birthday I beg to wish you many happy returry of the day ABOUND Tin IIOUSEl And he bovred very low and she bobbed her very best courtesy and Jack cried outi You look so you was dancing Time was getting on but the gener al wasjoath to go He was enjoying hiniktiif for the first time Ina long time lIe brought water he mended the window latch he planned out a flower bell He was thoroughly happy In the mrrry company of these children who only thought him a passing unusually goodnatured stranger Hut at last he went with a grimace at the thought of all the laced and silken crowd waiting for him The two children quite brightened by his presence worked about busily anti played about merrily and miidc things pleasant for father at sun down nut on hour before sundown cane riding by two people who called them selves gentlemen but nobody really thought them BO They hind been merrymaking and one maths horse had lost a shoe and his drunken dig pity was such that ho mutt pause at the cottage to send for a blacksmith to como to him or else have his horse led to the blacksmiths while he wait ed It was evident that the dwellers nt tho cottage were poor folks and these gentlemen felt assured their lordly orders would be obeyed Now frightenedhutthe young wine heated man bade him lend the horsy or fetch time smith Jack flatly refused to do either What what Youll be pall shouted the owner of the horse Come young mistress have you no wino for weary travelers Indeed no sir said Martha but further on tho post road Ill

Idea that time Sabbath idiould be ro Used ns to glorify God Then He shows them the Inherent falseness of their teaching They search the Scriptures for the smaller rules of conduct but fulled lo read there time great principles of life They read to have eternal life but fail to sec that their prophecies point lo Jesus time Christ who gives eternal life Then the Saviour adds Do not think that I
