NEW BRITAIN DAILY HERALD, FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 1926.
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.
