presumed to shake hands with General

a foolish waser to p up to him and

It Didn't Do to Tk. Lib.rti.s With !
Our First President. J
Presideut Washington uever went to i
congress on public business except In a
stagecoach drawn by six cream colored,
horses. The coach was an object which
won Id excite the admiration of the
throngs even now In our streets. It
was built In the shape of a hemisphere,
and Its panels were adorned with Cu
pids surrounded with Cowers and
fruits. The coachman and postilions
were arrayed in gorgeous liveries of
white and scarlet.
The Philadelphia Gazette, a govern
ment organ, regularly gare out court
news for the edification of the citizens.
From this Journal the people were per
mitted to learn as much aa It was
deemed proper they should know about
the president's movements, and a fair
amount of space was also devoted to
Mrs. Washington, who was, however.

They Appeared In Official Records In
Nicknames are not likely to go out
of fashion so long as human nature
remains what It is SchooIloys will
nickname each other, collegians will
nickname their professors, and sol
ders will speak of thrir commanders
as "Hell Fire Hill." "Fighting Joe." or
what not. in these days, however, it
hi not customary to spread such titles
upon official records, as was formerly
the habit, according -to the archives
of several of our states.
In the Dutch records in. 1644 we
have John Pietersen. alias Friend
John. In the Newtown purchase from
the Indians, dated in 1G5G. one of the
boundaries is "by a Dutchman's land
called Flans the Boore." and in the
Busbwick patent, dated Oct 12, 16G7,
one of the boundaries is "John the
Swede's meadow." In 1605. in the
Kings county records, a man is named
living at Gowanus as "Tunis the Fish
er." The common council of New York
In 1691 ordered fish to be brought into
the dock "over against the city hall
or the bouse that Long Mary former
ly lived In," and In the same year an
order was passed "that Topknot Betty
and her children be provided for as
objects of charity."
The explanation of this custom In
many cases was that the persons in
question either had no family names
or had forgotten them, so thrt the use
f their generally accepted nicknames
became a necessity. So numerous
were the Smiths living upon Long Is
land that It was thought necessary to
distinguish the various original fami
lies by some peculiar name. Thus we
have the Rock Smiths, the Blue
Smiths, the Bull Smiths and the
Weight Smiths. Harrier's Weekly.

A Custom In London In the Days When
