Jfr7A khw5on Loved _* 10 oLin4er ý'orm ý0arAer pvfU.4glnt d30itPoj~Bw Just after the death of Charles I and the estaiblishment of the protec torate of Oliver Cromwell, two young men whose rgenealogy daited back to the Norm'an 'conquest, came to Vir ginia. They were John and Andrew Washington, and in 1657 John pur chased a large tiact of land in West moreland county, bordering on the Potomac river. He afterwards ac quired several hundred acres of land between Degue run and Little Hunt ing creek, now Fairfax county. This land is now a.portion of the Mt. Ver non estate. At the death of John Wasghingtod It was bequeathed to his son Lawrence, and he afterward willed it to his son Augustine, the father of George Washington. The estate passed from Augustine Washihngton to his oldest son Ltwrence, George being the eldest son by the second marriage. Lawrence Washington married a Miss Fairfax of Velvoir, and had four chil dren, all of. whom died in infancy, and George became the owner of Mt. Ver non by ithe will of his half-brother before he ", was twenty-one years of age. Early in tife Washington began a military career, for at the age of four teen he was given a, commission as midshipman under Admiral Vernon, for whom Mt. Vernon was n'amed. He was never permitted, however, to go to sea, owing to the objection of his 'mother. His father died when he was but eleven years of age, and after his death young George seems to have passed the greater ,part of his time at the homes of his two elder brothers, or, to be accura.te,. his half-brothers, Iboth of whom were well educated men. They superintended the boy's educa tion, and he is said to have become unusually proficient in geometry and trigonometry. iHe showed an aptitude for sturveying, and his teacher fre quently found him surveying the grounds about the schoolhouse. As a schoolboy he was a bad speller and poor grammarian. Both of 'these de Year's Reforestation The largest reforestation project yet undertaken by the forest service in district No: 1 was consummated last fall when 5,000 acres were sown to valuable white pine on the Pend d'Oreille forest, near Cabinet, Idaho. The work, under the supervision of Ranger G. M. Van Dyke from the Pend d'Oreille -forest, was begun on September 14 and finished October 23. Advertisements for mhen were made lo cally in Heron, Cabinet, Clark's Fork and Sandpoint, Idaho. The work started with 30 men, 'but it was sootn found necessary to increase the num ber to 60, t.. finish before the ground should frecce.

He took special lessons in sword exercise and was noted for his graceful fencing. He paid little attention to books such as "Military Guides," "Arts of War," etc., and his knowledge 'along these lines was acquired by actual practice rather than from books. Washington's mother, lived to be elghty-thJree years of age, dying only ten years before Washington himself. During her entire life Washington spared no pains to see that she was made comfortable, and while he visited her at times, these visits are said to have been short and frequently un pleasant owing to the complaining dis position of the old lady. Washing ton's family seems to have given him no little trouble, for his brothers as well as his mother had a 'borrowing tendency, and added to this were other family troubles, for *his younger brothers were unruly at school and his sister Harrilet Seems to have caused him no little concern on account of her "lack of care for her clothing." At the age of ninetee.n Washington was given a position of honor and responsibility by the Virginia govern ment owing to Indian depredations. His military propensities ,increased with years, and when Governor Din widdie came to Virginia in 1752, Wash ington was made a major, and In 1754 he became a lieutenant colonel. At the old Carlisle house at Alexan dria, Via., which stands in the 'ourt yard of the once famous Braddock hotel, he held councils of war wilth General Braddock, and while the gen eral thought well of the young man's military.,ideas he refused to listen to his advice. It is well known how disastrously the expedition ended. In later years Washington frequently visited the Carlis:e house and often recalled the war councils there. The illustrious Father of his Coun try was always fond of the fair sex. Even as a schoolboy he delighted more in playing with girls than in romping with the boys. When but seventeen years of age he fell in love great fires of 1910, and was selected for the work for several rdasons. It had a north slope favorable to the growth of white pine, which yields the largest returns on money expended for planting; it was comparatively free from dense brush and windfall, which make the work expensive; it was not seeding in naturally, and had no live seed trees to restock it; and it was only a short distance from the rail road, which made easy the transporta tion of food supplies for the men. A deserted lumber camp with fine sleeping quarters, good kitchen and mess house, stable and storehouse, was used for the central camp and commissary. It was located only a quarter of a mile from 'the planting area', and a mile from the railroad at Cabinet, Idaho, and accommodated about 35 men. A second camp was located on the Elk creek divide, four miles from the central camp, wyith tents to accommo date about 30 men. Each camp was provided with a cook and "flunky," and the upper camp was supplied 'with provisions, seed and equipment by pack train from the central camp. The white pine seed was sown with corn-planters which were regulated to drop about 15 seeds to a spot. The men, each with a corn-planter, sta tioned eight feet apart in a line, en circled the hills rather than climb up and down the slopes. As they walked along they made seed spots 'with the planters every eight feet. In this manner a little less than half a pound of seed was sown to the acre. With 30 men in each crew, covering a swath, of 240 feet, it was often im possible on the steep slopes to see one end of the line fromrthe other, and it was necessary to appoint every fifth man a. "corporal," whose duties were to keep sthe line straight and the spac ing uniform. Each crew of 30 men was in charge of a foreman, who 'was a forest officer. The amount of ground covered per day with this method was surprising, considering the rough ground and steep slopes. The mep often aver aged five acres each per day, which means walking a linear distance of more than five mileb, and the aver age per man per day was 4.2 acres for the whole job. The soil was not broken or the de bris removed in preparation for the seed, because the shade cast by low bushes and debris is considered bene Sjcigl to young seedligag.

T'he total cost per acre was only $2.16, or 92 per cent exclusive of seed, which is the lowest figure that has ever been at tained in this district.
