greed which would sweep away a most
jnrecious landmark of history—The Her
mitage—Jackson's old home near Nash
The general assembly of the state of
Tennessee has assigned to the care of the
Ladies' Hermitage association, of Nash
rille, the house and tomb of General
Jackson and twenty-five surrounding
acres to improve and preserve in last
ing memory of the hero of New Orleans.
This property was purchased years'ago
by the state from the adopted son of
General Jackson, with the proviso that
his wife remain there during her life.
Mrs. Jackson died three years ago, when
tho state handed over the historic man
sion to The Hermitage association.
When the energetic and patriotic
sonthern gentlewomen who formed this
association took possession of the noble
mansion they found ruin and decay
everywhere prevalent upon the estate.
The little log cabin where "Old Hickory"
lived for fifteen years was a complete
wreck. "Its chimney was falling down
and its roof was caving in." Up at the
Ibrave old mansion affairs were not much
better. The roof leaked, the plaster had
■alien in all the rooms, and the wall
paper was discolored and peeling. Out
buildings were tottering, fences tum
bling down, and the melancholy of ruin
was fast settling over the entire place.
The mansion has been roofed, plaster
fag and paper have been repaired, fences,
drives and outbuildings put in shape
and the log cabin fully restored, even
to the kitchen fireplace, before which

servant of the general, still sits, and gaz

The Hermitage is a magnificent speci
men of colonial architecture. The ap
proach through a long avenue bordered
by grand old trees is indescribably pic
tTtreique. Across its antique porticoes
said massive pillars brush low, drooping
boughs, and the warm sunshine touches
the old house with loving fingers. The
neat carved door, with its resounding
knocker, stands open. Enter the old
fashioned hall, long and broad enough
tor a modern ballroom. It is papered
with highly colored scenes and incidents
fa the life of Telemachus.
This paper was bought by General
Jackson in France in 1837 and is in
an excellent state of preservation. The
pictures hang on the walls just as Jack
son left them. There are two very fine
portraits of Mrs. Jackson, by Earle, and
any number of portraits of the general,
the most interesting perhaps being that
taken by order of the French gov
ernment five days before his death.
Quaint claw footed mahogany sofas and
chairs are scattered about. A superb
winding stairway leads to the rooms
above, while on either side stretch apart
ments whose hospitable dimensions
speak volumes of dead and gone cheer.

"All houses wherein men have lived
and died are haunted," says Longfellow,
and The Hermitage is no exception. It
is peopled, to the imaginative visitor,
with a company of illustrious shadows,
among which perhaps the phantom of
gentle Rachel Jackson moves with the
most tender and melancholy interest,
seeming indissolubly blended with ev
ery nook and corner of the home to
which she was devoted, and from which
destiny decreed she should not wander.
The story of Rachel Jackson's life is
like a romance. She was a wonderfully
beautiful woman, and her portraits limn
a face of winsome and innocent expres
sion. The throat is full, the lips sweet,
the brow rounded, and tho eyes are large
and limpid. A cap of soft lace crow-ns
the dark curls which fall over the shoui
ders. Mrs. Jackson possessed a lovely
disposition and deep personal piety. In
her youth she contracted an unfortunate
alliance with one her inferior in every
respect, and from whom she was di
vorced. The love of General Jackson for
his amiable and interesting wife amount
ed to idolatry, and during his momen
tous career he never escaped from the
influence she left behind her. He wore
her ininiature on his heart till his death,
and. no matter what his cares or pleas
ures, at the close of each busy day th»
president retired to a quiet room to com
mune with the portrait and the Bible of
his dead wife.
Mrs. Jackson cared very little for the
honors of this world and longed for
nothing so much as the hour when her
husband would finish with politics, for
he assured her that when that time ar
rived he would become a Christian.
When Jackson was elected president his
wife said to those about her: "For Mr.
Jackson's sake I am glad; for my own J
never wished it. I would rather be a
doorkeeper in the house of my God than
to dwell in that palace in Washington."
It was while making preparations fo»
her departure from the dearly loved
Hermitage and the little chapel built bj
her husband for her own especial usf
that this gentle soul received the rud«
shock which caused her death. She was
like a mother to every servant on the
estate, and wishing to leave all comfort
able for the winter made a trip into
Nashville to buy supplies and clothing
for those who were dependent on her.
Weary from her shopping she went into
the parlor of a hotel to rest while waiting
for the family coach to carry her back to
Suddenly she heard her name spoken
in an adjoining room and her character
basely and cruelly calumniated. For
some time she sat there, pale and cold,
listening to accusations against herself
which had been freely circulated during
the campaign, but which her chivalric
husband had carefully kept from her
knowledge. The popular tradition adds
that she was seized with spasmodic dis
ease of the heart, from which a few nights
later she died.
The grief of Jackson was agonizing,
and from that hour he seemed to live
to avenge her wrongs. Probably during
no other administration of the govern
ment has personal feeling entered so
largely into official appointments as in
the offices filled by Andrew Jackson.
Did he have the slightest suspicion that
a man had neglected to espouse the cause
of his beloved wife he lost no time in
removing him. Upon her tomb he caused
her virtues to be enumerated and her
good deeds recited, ending the glowing
tribute with these touching and eloquent
words: "A being so gentle and so virtu
ous slander might wound, but could not
dishonor. Even death, when he bore her
from the arms of her husband, could but
transport her to the bosom of her God."

The i;ifort of New York Organ Builder*.
What the New York organ builders
tell me most emphatically is that organs
are now made in this country from an
art standpoint rather than a trade stand
point. They have given up trying to
make little Gothic cathedrals of the or
gan cases. "Spend you money on the
works," they tell their customers, "the
plain case is the handsomest case." Most
modern American organs have little or
no woodwork above the feet of the front
pipes.—Cor. New York Times.

A New and Valuable Forage Plant
To every subscriber of the DAILY AND WEEKLY HERALD during 1893,
who pays in advance, a package of seed of the new forage plant, Jerusalem corn,
will be sent if requested. This plant, an illustration of which appears above, can
be cut from eight to ten times a year. It is far superior to alfalfa, and even a space
of ground of 50x150 feet will grow enough to support a cow. This corn plant
needs no irrigation if planted from February to May, and is positively the best
fodder known irj the United States. Further information will be given concerning
this valuable premium, but every mail subscriber, both new and old, can take ad
vantage of this liberal offer. Certificates from farmers, both in Europe and the
United States, are on file in the Herald office, showing that extensive experiments
have proved the great value of this cereal. For cowe, horses, hogs and chickens,
Jerusalem corn bas proved a most pronounced success, and the farmer who plants
it will find tbe producing capacity of his pasture almost doubled. Now is the time
to subscribe or renew your subscriptions. The following are the rates:
