Article* Worn by the Revolutionary
Commander, and Long In General's
Family, Included In Group
Given by Government.
Pay Dtra*ctor R. T. Mason Itali,
t'nlted States navy, ot Baltimore, has
recently deposited
In the United
States National
Museum a num?
ber of relics of the
Washington and
Ball families,
some of them dat?
ing as far back as
the French and
Indian wars, and
all of considerable
historical value.
These objects
were formerly
owned by Pay Di?
rector Hall's fath?
er. George Washington Dall, grandson
of Frances Thornton Washington,
daughter of Charles Washington, the
younger brother of George, and have
been retained in the possession of a
direct descendant of Mary Ball, the
mother of George Washington, up to
the present time.
Tbe relics Include a pair of gold
wire epaulets, of antique design, worn
hy ("eorge Washington as colonel dur?
ing the French and Indian war of
1754-63. notably throughout the Brad?
dock campaign In 1766.
Others are a single epaulet worn
during the War of the Revolution, and
a white leather Masonic apron of
that period, decorated with Masonic
Insignia in gold, both owned by Lieu?
tenant Colonel Burges Rall of the con?
tinental army, a third cousin of Gen
BTal Washington (nephew by mar?
riage), and for a time volunteer aid
on his staff.

of highly polished hard wood, bearing
the portrait of Lafayette, presented to
him by American admirers on the oo
easlon of his visit to the United
States In 1824, and In turu presented
hy him to his godson. Fayette Hall,
father of George Washington Hall, on
the occasion of Lafayette's visit at the

This ls one of the few authentic
relics nf Washington's mother extant,
and ls the property of Hay Director
Hall and his four sisters, Mrs. Mary
Randolph Hall. Mrs. W. F. Hill, Mrs.
C. G Lane ami Mrs. J. S. Howman.
Congressman Tayler Makes an Im?
portant Discovery While Walt?
ing for a Street Car.
Representative Ned Tayler of Ohio,
battle scarred and worn from tbe re
cent strife in the Huckeye state, found
lt necessary the other afternoon to
make a hurried trip to the department
of commerce and labor from hts room
in tbe house offlee building. His ma?
chine and chauffeur were not to be
found, so he leaned languidly against
the coping outside the capitol grounds
and waited for a Pennsylvania avenue
stfeet car.
Just aa the green carriage of the
hoi pollol rolled Into view, he sighted
bis machine crossing the ca'pltol plaza,
a very summery summer girl proudly
seated beside the chauffeur. The
fair passenger was dropped at one
corner, and waited while the chauffeur
rolled around to his usual stand beside
the office building.
"Say," exclaimed the M. C.. "that's
my machine, and that's my chauffeur.
Find the man that's giving the party.
He thinks he's going to report to me
and then take his girl for another ride,
but I'll Tool him. Jake"?this to his
secretary?"you run over and tell bim
to come over here. We'll go down?
town In the machine after alt. No
wonder that man was fired from th*
police force."
Restless Senatorial Fans.
Restlessness was noticeable among
the baseball fans In the senate and
th* house along about 3:30 p. m. Even
turning the hutton and starting tha
electric fans was of no avail. Every
Ave minutes during the progress of
a debate or between roll calls certain
solons could be seen quietly slipping
out to get tbe latest information from
the American league park In Phila?
delphia. Although this was at thc
crisis of the convention contests foi
choosing delegates to the National
Republican convention. Interest foi
the moment centered entirely upon
the diamond at Philadelphia, and th*
animosities of debate were forgotten
when two senators whispered with ai;
the eager enthusiasm of boyhocxl
days: "What's the score?"
The great national game will-nol
yield interest even to the presidential
election. Philosophers have often in
slsted that the annual recurring base
ball contagion Is a safety valve for th*
explosive energies of the Americai
people, who are otherwise to*
wrapped up In their business an*
pleasures. They follow the move
ments on the diamond and the jot
tings on the score card with thi
same nervous IntPnsiiy, but then 1
ls "play"?not work, and the view
point makes so vast a difference!?

Couldn't Walk!
"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs. Anna Jones, of Kenny, 111. "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. 1 am in
fine health at 52 years."
Cardui womlniTomc
