Bis Personal Appearance and Snceeis
as a Farmer
Washington's personal appi II
waa very striking He was a tall man.
standing six feet two Inohee i" Ins
boots. "'My stature is six feet , other
wise rather slender than corpulent." is
the way the Father of His Country de.
scribed himself to a London tailor. Be
Jiuiped almost imperceptibly in the left
le?; this was the result of striking his
kuee against U tree during the campaign
of '70 His eyes were bluish gray m
color, but very bright and expressive
His mouth was his strong feature, his
lipa being always tightly coanptneeed
Kis hair was a chestnut brown and
curly. His cheeks were prominent,and
hia complexion generally pale, with
jnat a tinge of color high up on the
cheek bones. His face showed the
marks uf smallpox, with which he was
stricken during his trip t< the Baha?
mas in 1751. His chin was firm, his
none straight and long; his eyes,widely
separated, were overhung by a heavy
brow. His teeth were nearly all defec?
tive or false.
Washington's head was not large,
compared with other parts of his body,
which seemed big ami bony. His fin?
ger-joints and wrists were so large as
to be genuine curiosities His hands
were so long and broad that he could^not
buy a covering to fit him, and had to
have his gloves made to order His
boots were enormous ; they were No.
IS, and their combined weights with
spurs attached was twenty one pounds.
Hia arma and legs were as long as they
were large Muscular, wide-shoulder?
ed, and always athletic, he weighed 17,">
pounda when he took his seat in the
House of Burgesses in 1759, and tipped
the acales at 110 pounds shortly before
Washington as a property owner was
one of the wealthiest men in this coun?
try daring the last quarter of the eight?
eenth ceutuiy He owned at the time
of his death (1,896 acres, not Including
the Mount Veraou estate. Iu 17!?
Washington owned 317 head of cattle,
034 sheep and 54 draught horses. The
general live stock on his farm was esti?
mated at $35,000. Over 300 persous
lived on the Mount Vernon estate, aud
Washington employed his own carpen?
ters, blacksmiths, weavers, masons and
cobblers. A shrewd man at driving a
bargain, cautious in all speculative ven?
tures and fond of the details of business
as he was of military atYairs, Washing?
ton's greatest ambition in time of peace
was to be known as the first farmer of
One of bis greatest treasures won as
an agriculturist, was a massive silver
cup, nine inches high,elegantly chased,
aud bearing this inscription :
A Piemium from the
Agricultural Society of South Carolina
For Raising the Largest Jackass. "
Under the inscription a very realistic
portrait of the animal was engraved
Washington's marriage to the widow
Cuatis brought to his care an estate
valued in round numbers at $10d,is?i
This was great wealth in Washingt m'a
Tatter, Salt-Rheum and Ecxsma.
The intense itching and smarting in?
cident to these diseases, is instantly
allayed by applying Chamberlain's Eye
and Skin Ointment. Many very bad
caaes have been permanently cured by
it. It ia equally efficient for itching
piles and a f ivorate remedy for sore
nipples, chapped band, chilblaius,
frost bites and chronic sore eyes, Boots

A Copper King? Palace.
Senator W. A. Clark, the Montana
copper king, now in Paris, says that
the mansion which is to be built for
him at Seventy-seventh street and Fifth
avenue, New York, will be the finest in
that city, and that m it he will have
the best collection of pictures in the
United States. The mansion is I
91,500,000 and is to be constructed of
white granite in the style of Louis XIV
Pictures and statuary are to have sep?
arate galleries. That for the pictures
is to have a ceiling M feet high, and is
to be so arranged that it can be turned
into a theatre. The stage will be hid?
den away aloft when not in use and
can be lowered by an electrical arrange?

apartments and other rooms are full

The woman who is lovely in face,
form and temper will always have
frienda, but one who would be attrac?
tive must keep her health. If she is
weak, aickly and all run down,she will
be nervous and irritable. If she has
constipation or kidney trouble, her im?
pure blood will cause pimples, blotches,
akin eruptions and a wretched com?
plexion. Electric Bitters is the best
medicine in the world to regulate
atomach, liver and kidneys and to
purify the blood. It gives strong nerves,
bright eyes, smooth, velvety skin, rich
complexion. It will make a good look?

This is the advice which the New
York Press gives to a young man who
wanted to know bow to increase hia
height by three inchee. : ' 'In the first

giants of Maine,who live almost whol?

their parents are long or short. Peo?
ple who live on turnips, the broad, flat
variety, generally partake of the na?
ture of that watery root?they become
rotund and dropsical. If beans do not
aid your stature try tying a cannon
ball to each ankle, and when you sleep

and let the weights swing over the foot.
Lie down a great deal. Sleep on the

Nearly all the claims arialng from the
destruction of the Maine have been paid
by the Treasury Department. An act
of Congress provided that such claims
should be divided into two clases, the
gratuity and the indemnity, the former
being those of the families or relatives
of the men killed by the explosion.
This act also provided that a year's pay
in these caaes be granted in lieu of in?
demnity. So far the total number of
oases aettled la 204, aggregating in pay?

paid there have been ninety-two,
