ANDJTS NAME Traced Back to an Old Indian Romance 'Atltnta, Ga. March 2t ? Sprlnc time, which will bft-in to broak In Dixit btfort March hat flown, Is re. garded by flower-lovers as the time of roses. Almost all varlettes are raised In the open lu this latitude and farther south, almost the year around. Rose-bushes are to be found in prolusion ana especially in Georgia, where the Cherokee rose rules a favorite. This flower takes Its name from the Cherokee nation of Indians which made the mountains o the northern portion of the slate their habitat. There Is no tuthentlo account of tht origin of the rose but a legend, handed down from the Indians, still lives. It Involves a romance between a Cherokee maiden and a Seminole brave from Florida. The younge brave, taken prlsouer by the Cherokee, was doomed to die by torture, after which tys body wa to be thrown into flames. But before the sentence could be carried Into execution he was stricken by disease, i A tradition among the Cherokecs waa that no foe ever had been put to death unless he was in the. pink of condition. Consequently, the youth wis taken by a Cherokee chief to his own hut, who set his daughter to nursing. As the Seminole improved, her -feeling for him Increased and short ly before the time he was to be put to death, she found she was in love with him. She pleaded with him to escape with her help and- make his way home. He reciprocating her love, refused, to do this unlets, she accompany him. At midnight they stole away, but when a short distance, the Indian girl said she could not go en without some memento of her old home. They returned and she broke a beau tiful rose from a bush by tho hut of her father. Carrying this in her breast to the land farther south, she planted It at her new home. It took root and flourished, and its milk-white blos soms with golden centers recalled her childhood days in the far-away mountains of Georgia. From that time, this flower has been known as tho Cherokee rose.
