FACE ON ONE CENT PIECE.
Attempt to Alter it Brings Forth In
Have you a penny to your name ?
If you are so fortunte take one out
from its resting place and scan it
closely. You will notice that the face
thereon is not characteristically In
dian. It suggests more the head of
a young girl with soft, curling hair
and classic features. In fact, the cast
and general expression is reminiscent
of a Greek model rather than of a
savage. It is purely Caucasian.
This laek of resemblance to an
aboriginal has caused some folk to
declare that Uncle Sam is a nature
faker and that the mistake should be
rectified and the head of a Sioux or
some other wild Indian be placed on
the coin instead.
Vigorous protests to such a change
have come from Baltimore, and Mr.
John G. Herman has written a letter
to President Roosevelt asking that
he use his influence against a change,
and advocating the retention of the
present design. Mr. Herman, who
knows all about the selecting of the
design for the penny, has told the
President why and how it so happen
ed that the coin bears a face so un
like an Indian, when the headdress
has enough feathers to deck out a
whole tribe for battle.
It seems that the face on the pen
ny is one of a pretty girl, who after
ward grew to be a famous woman.
Her name was Sarah Longacre
Keen, and she lived in Philadelphia.
When she was a child 6 years old a
delegation of Indians from the North
west visited Washington. They came
to ssee the sights and pay their re
spects to the Great White Father. Af
ter having spent considerable time at
the Capital they were taken to Phil
adelphia. There they were shown the
Honored by Indian Brave.
Little Sarah's father was a fine en
graver and he had official connection
with this great money factory. He
was a kindly, benevolent man as well,
and invited the delegation of red men
to some sort of an entertainment at
his home. One of the chiefs had his
attention attraeted to the little miss,
and he was so much pleased with .her
figure and maidenly bearing that in a
mood of sportiveness he took off his
headdress and put it on her heaq. She
was not frightened, but lending her
self to the enjoyment . of the joke,
she stood for a moment and let the
company look at her.
Someone present, who had both an
eye for beauty and artistic skill gvas
.so struck by - the appearance little
Sarah made in her Indian hat that
I1e sketched her on the spot.
The sketch was engraved by her
father. Just then the 1-cent coin
,in its present form was about to be
issued, but the head with which its
face was to be ornamented had not
been chosen. This engraved sketch
went into competition for the honor.
It was accepted in preference to all
others, and the imprint of it was
transferred to the neat little copper
coins whieh Uncle Sam for so many
years has been sending out into the
Lived Life of Usefulness.
When Sarah grew into womanhood
s(became activrely interested in
missionary work and was for thirty
five years secretary of the Woman's
Foreign Missionary Society of the
MIethodist Episcopal Church. She was
also an earnest worker in the cause of
higher education for women, and as
a result of her efforts there is a col
lege for women in the Cit.y of Mexico
dedicated to her memory and costing
$100,000. most of which was given
Mr. Herman and his friends who
want the present bas-relief on the
cent retained declare that the face- is
of one who accomplished much, and
that it is not only more appropriate
than a creation of an artist's imagi
nation would- be, but it is a tribute
Land an honor to American woman
As Sarah was in after life connect
ed with mission work, it is certain
that she, too. saw her face as a child
many times in the missionary boxes
she sent away to foreign fields.
Mr. Herman has received a reply
from the president, and the subject is
now being considered by the secre
tary of the treasury.
