AN HIST0EIC CABIN.
It Was tho Home of
t-ocated a Half Mile from Berryvllle, Va.f
In tho Beautiful Shenandoah Valley
It Is Now Fast Going
In these days, when relics of the
great and good George Washington are
brought out of dark closets and old
libraries where they have been hidden
for a century and more, and every
thing that was ever in contact with the
immortal "Father of lus Country" has
a sacred value, it is strange that the
relic hunters have overlooked the
crumbling old log cabin, the picture of
which is seen below. There are a great
many "Washington's headquarters"
scattered throughout this part of the
country. There is one at Newburg,
one at Morristown, etc., while as for
the houses in which. Washington had
slept, they are as numerous as swallows
in summer. All these are preserved
with scrupulous care, and venerated as
sacred for evermore by their owners.
Xot so with the old log cabin of this
sketch. Sunshine and storm have been
at work upon it for generations, and
now it has almost succumbed and
passed away. Yet there are few build
ings that attract the admirers of Wash
ington that have more of interest in
them than this decaying cabin, which
stands alone in an old pasture field a half
mile from Berryvilie, in tho beautiful
Shenandoah valley of Virginia. Irving
describes it as a "lodge in the wilder
ness," and Howe, in his "History of
Virginia," devotes a sentimental half
page to it.
The old cabin was the homo of Wash
ington when he was a surveyor. He
came here direct from the maternal
roof to begin the arduous and, at that
time, dangerous work of surveying the
lands of Thomas, Lord Fairfax, who
owned all tho northern part of Vir
ginia under tho king's patent; the
work was arduous because of the phys
ical aspect of the country, then a dense
wilderness, and dangerous because of
the character of the inhabitants, who
were principally Indians, or scarcely

less wild trappers or squatters upon
his lordship's domain. Washington.
had been selected by the old nobleman
because of his belief in the youth's '
ability to cope with these elements, '
and the young surveyor left his home
on the banks of the Potomac carry in
174S, just after tho completion of his
sixteenth year, his only companion be-
ing George William Fairfax, nephew
of old Lord Thomas. Whether these
boys erected the building or found it
already in place, history does not 1
In after years when, confronted by '
tho British or that greater enemy, in
ternal dissonsion, he held the fate of a (
young nation in the hollow of his hand, )
no doubt his thoughts often went back
to the little hut in tho valley of Vir- I
ginia, and he wished himself there
again under tho shadow of the great
blue mountains, where he could '
breatho the fresh, perfume-laden air, j
drink the cool, clear water thatgushed
from the rock near the door, and bo
free from discontent and strife. Tho
old hut has, in the niemon- of the pres
ent generation, dono duty as a "milk
house" for farmers. Of the dense copso
of trees, which Howe says shaded tho
spring, only a tall and sturdy elm re
mains. On a hill not far away is "Sol
dier's Rest," another log cabin itself
of historic interest also, for in it lived
Daniel INIorgan, the rough teamster
who afterward became Washington's
right hand in the war for independence
Morgan, the hero of Quebec and Sara
toga, and the man who destroyed
Tarleton at the cowpens and checked
the tide of British victories. Morgan
was a conspicuous figure in all the
roi'irh-and-tumble fitrhts that irave tho
little town of Berrwllle the name of ,
Battletown, bv which it was known
for 100 years, and after these encoun-
ters ho would go and sit on the rocks
down by the old Washington cabin
while his wife would bathe his bruised
and cut head in tho cooling waters of
the spring, and bind up big bloody
It seems almost a pity that this old
cabin should be allowed to crumble
away in the Virginia pasture-field
where it has stood for 145 years. The
creat elm tree looks as if it was good
for a thousand years yet, while the
rock and the spring will be there for
evermore, but sun and wind and rain
have made sad ravages in the hut that
sheltered the youthful Washington.
The present owner of the cabin is G.
G. Calmes, of Rerryville.
Incroi-c of Money In Circulation.
Ti".e country's money circulation has
increased from $720,000,000 in 1S73 to
over 51,000,000,000 at the present time.
The coinage of silver has increased
from $4,000,000 in 1S73 to nearly $40,
000,000 in 1S90. There was no silver in
the treasury or in circulation in IS73
and to-day there is $400,000,000.

la Oar Social
Nowhere does the yonng married
woman reign in greater supremacy
than in the social circles of our own
land. She has overcome the shyness
of girlhood, though in many case she
is still young enough to be in the school
room. Her manners have acquired a
certain roundness and her conversation
a grace and elegance that make her
most attractive to men, both old and
young. Being herself matrimonially
disposed of. a man has no compunction
in paying her attentions that would bj
at once misconstrued if given to her
single sister. He can dance with her
as often ahe likes, chat with her free
ly, and the world after their second
meeting dos not announce their en
gagement. Moreover the married won
s.a understands men better than the
debutante. The latter, expecting to re
ceive adoration, is vexed and put out if
she does not obtain as much as shf
deems swaictent as tribute to her
The married woman, on the other
hand, ha learned by experience that
men expect to be flatt'ered as well as
women, and in a happy HtUe war of
her own appsals to a man's vanity and
