TOMB OF WASHINGTON.
Why Ita Gates Will 3et Be Opened
. ' Wuw the President.
Tbe one hundredth anniversary of
tbe 9eat'? of Washington, to be observ
ed at Mount Vernon on Dee. 14, recalls
an act of TaodaUsm of tbe civil war.
Tbe ground , of Washington' bomo
ml touib were neutral during that
conCct. . Tbej constituted tbe one spot
upon which Union and Confederate
could meet aud fraternize. And it was
while the pickets of both armies were
thus at free quarters that an attempt
was made to desecrate tbe sarcopha
rus. There was only one gate to the tomb
at that time. Tbe Iron bars of this
pate did not extend to tbe ceillnj of
tbe entrance. Tbe man who commit
ted tbe depredation climbed over tbe
top of tbe gate, reached the sar
cophagus and broke a talon from tbe
marble -eagle above the receptacle.
That was tbe extent of tbe act. This
led to the construction of tbe double
gate which now shuts In tbe dead. So
clone are the bars of tbe two gates that
when tbe place is strewn with flowers
tbey are passed through tbe bars by
means of loug poles.
Tbe loquacious Individual who bas
the post of guard and guide informs
TifUtors that on Dec. 14 tbe gates are
to be open and that President McKin
ley will place flowers on tbe receptacle
containing the remains of Washington.
But this is only a fancy of the old man.
Under the strictest orders of the Mouut
Vernon association tbe gates of tbe
tomb are never to be open, says the
New York Sun. Whatever is done in
the way of floral offering by the presi
dent will be done in the usual man
ner observed four times a year, Feb.
22, Memorial day, July 4 and Dec.
14. After the double gate was con
structed the outer one was locked
and the key thrown into tbe channel of
the Potomac river. The channel was
chosen beenjisc the Potomac is the
haunt of ojster dredgers and fisher
men, and thoy operate iu the 6hnIlows,
and the uiau who threw the key away
was specifically Instructed to drop it
In the channel of the stream.
Pilgrims of recent years to the shrine
will recall the old guard, Gilbert Park
er, now dead, who was the last of the
Washington family's domestics. His
successor Is a bronze bued old man
who for ninny years was the sexton of
Pobick church, where Washington
worshiped when the condition of the
road to Alexandria prevented his at
tendance at tbe church at tbe latter
place. The present guard Is one of the
last of the slave families of the I-ees.
He is more fluent than Parker, but is
reckless with dates and names.
The Linvh on the General.
The late General Clinton B. Fisk wag
once addressiug a Sunday school con
vention. One of the speakers had re
minded tbe childreu that it was Wash
"Children." said General Fisk, "you
all know that Washington was a gen
eral. Perhaps you know that I am
also a general. Now, can any one tel?
what was the difference between Gen
eral Washington aud myself?"
"I know, sir." replied a small boy In
tbe back part of the room.
"Well, what was the difference?"
said General Fisk, smiling at the lad's
"George Washington couldn't tell a
lie. sir!" cried the boy in exultant
tones. Shouts of laughter followed, in
which tbe general joined heartily. De
A Candle Trick.
ret A candle burn until It has a good
long snuff; then blow it out with a sud
den puff. A bright wreath of while
smoke will -url up from tbe hot wick.
Now. if a flame be applied to this
smoke, even at a distance of two or
three inches from tbe candle, tbe flame
will run down the smoke and rekin
dle the wick In a very fantastic tuan
uer. To perforin this ceremony nicely
there must le no draft or "banging"
doors while the mystic spell is rising.
T ww Tower..
Students of architecture may bane
often wondered why the two towers
of Notre Dame at Paris were not of
tbe same size. It appears that when
the cathedral was built It was the
cathedral of a suffragan bishop, who
was not entitled to two towers of equal
height, and for centuries the bishop of
Paris was suffragan to the bishop of

I . NEW COALING STATION.
Advantages of the Slalne Site De

In an Interview tbe other day at
Bangor, Me., with a representative of
the New York Times Rear Admiral
Bradford. U. S. N., spoke in terms of
praise of tbe site chosen at Lamolne.
on Frenchman's bay, for the new naval
coaling station and pointed oat some
of tbe advantages of the place. There
ere good depth of water, good holding
ground for anchors, solid foundatloa
for piers and buildings, plenty of fresh
water for drinking purposes and for
boilers and a sufficient height of land
to allow of the easy loading of coal by
Admiral Bradford says thnt proba
bly a T" shaied pier will be built
with room enough for oue large vessel
to lie across the bead and near tbe pier
store sheds for 5,000 tons of coal, wbicb
capacity would probably be increased
In the near future. There will be rifle
ranges on shore for the practice of tbe
marines, an athletic field, a laundry
and some other buildings. A couple of
tugs and some lighters will be provid
ed at tbe pier, and there will be mod
ern appliances for discharging 'and
loading coal and other heavy supplies.
Asked if In tbe event of war It would
be necessary to establish railroad com
munication witb tbe station. Admiral
Bradford replied In tbe negative. If
shipment of coal by sea should be In
terrupted or become hazardous, coal
would then be shipped by rail to Mount
Desert Ferry and thence across the bay
In barges. As this shipment across
tbe bay would be Inside the lines of
coast fortifications, there would be no
While Lamolne point is the best
adapted for the purpose of any place In
tbe vicinity the price paid for the land
was lower by far than was asked for
any other of the five pieces of land
bonded. In fact. Admiral Bradford
said that the prices asked for land on
the Mount Desert 6hore were simply
prohibitory. Tbe admiral said that the
selection of lamolne as the location of
tbe coaling station would undoubtedly
make Bar Harbor the eastern terminus
of the nortb Atlantic squadron's cruise
It is said tbat an electric railway
will be built to the land from the
terminus of the Maine Central rail
road at Mount Desert Ferry.
HI. Opinion of Shakespeare.

ing a famous man of letters who vis
ited Washington recently. He appear

be sat next the j-oung daughter of n
noted uaval officer. Her vocabulary
Is of a kind peculiar to very young
girls, but she rattled away at the fa
mous man without a moment's respite.
It was tirrring a pause in the general
conversation that she said to him:
"I'm awfully stuck on Shakespeare.
Don't j'ou think he's terribly Interest
ing?" Everybody listened to hear the great
man's brilliant,. reply, for as a Shakes
pearean scholar be bas few peers.
"Yes." be said solemnly. "I do think
he is interesting. I think he is more
than thnt. I think Shakespeare is just
simply too cute for anything." Wash
"What's that there young man's
business?" asked Mr. Parveuu.
"He's a tutor. I believe," replied bis

sure what it is, but last night Maybelle

Twenty-Bve Teara' Constant Ise Without
Tbe first indication of croup is
hoarseness, and in a child subject to
tbat disease it may be taken as a sure
sign of tbe approach of an attack.
Following this hoarseness is a peculiar
rough cough. If Chamberlain's Congb
Remedy is given aa soon as the child
becomes hoarse, or even after tbe
croupy cough appears, it will prevent
the attack. It is used in many thous
ands of homes in this broad land and
never disappoints tbe anxiou moth
ers. We have yet to learn of a single
instance in which It bas not proved
effectual. No other preparation can
show such a record twenty-five years'

Mr. Smock says the Boers are big,

The people at Cape Town thought at
first that one or two small battles
would end the war and that the Boers
would then lay down their arms, but
they now expect a long and bitter

Does It Pay to ruy Cheap?
A cheap remedy for coughs and
colds is all right, but you want some
thing that will relieve and cure the
more severe and dangerous results of
throat and lung troubles. What shall
you do? Go to a warmer and more
regular climate? Yes, if possible; if
not possible for you, then in either
case take the only remedy that has
been introduced In all civilized coun
tries with success in severe throat and
lung troubles, "Boschee's German
Syrup." It not only heals and stim
ulates the tissues to destroy tbe germ

causes easy expectoration, gives a

It Is the devout wish of nearly all people to live to a ripe old ace.
None of us want to die young. This universal desire can be realized if
care be taken of the health in early and middle life. A little precaution then
will add many years to our existence. Death can be kept away a long
time. Happy, healthy old ape will be the lot ot the woman who promptly
corrects the ailments which afflict her sex. In youth, Wine of Cardui will
take the female child safely over the dividing line between girlhood and
womanhood. As a wife she needs it to help her through the trials of
pregnancy and childbirth with as little discomfort as possible. At the
Change of Life it will help her over the dangerous place that appears In
her pathway between 40 and 50. Then will come many years of truly
blissful existence. She will grow old slowly and gracefully. To the last
she will preserve that charm and beauty which are always characteristic
