Origin of Old Glory.
In the reminiscences of Ix>rd Ronald
Gower is found a story of the origin of
tho stars :uul stripes.
The "star spangled banner" of the
American republic lind its origin from
nu old brass ??n the V0 of an ancient
church ta Northamptonshire. Tbe brest
covers the tomb of one Uobort Wash
tnftoa and ls dated MB. On it np
pears the Washington coat of arms,
consisting Of three stars, with bars or
strides beneath them. On the first day
of the new year, 1770. the thirteen
united colonies raised a standard al
Washington's headquarters.
This introduced the stripes of tnt
present, but retained the crosses of St
George and St. Andrew on a bluf
ground in the corner. In 1777 thc
a wei* n ri by atara
Declaratloa of independence render*!
the retention of tho English element
?nillirCi?ry and inconvenient. In thin
adopting the arms of his ancestors ai
his own distinctive badge Washington
no doubt intended the Hag merely as ?
private signal for his own personal fol
lowing, but lt was at once adopted a?
a national emblem. Probably there 1:
not another ease in the world's histor}
in which the private arms of an ob
s-ure family have attained such world
wide eminence and repute.
