Bust Of Washington
H Mace From Cherry Tree
lH I
H Every American knows the story
B. ' of George Washington and the chcr-
H ry tree. This Is a story or .Tamos
H Madden, who lives today, and a wild
H cherry trco that stood within the
H lines of old Fort Necessity In Kay-
H otto county, Pa., tho only place
where Washington over capitulated
B to n foe.
B From tho stump of this old trco
H i which shared better than Its kins-
H j man connected with tho hatchet epl-
H ' sodo. Inasmuch as Its Ufa Is bollov-
H ed to have extended considerably ov
H cr a century James Haddcn of
H Unlontown, Pa., has constructed a
H bust of Washington. Tho unique
H souvenir, patterned after tho famous
H Houdon bust, Is pronounced a re-
H mnrkablo likeness of tho father or
H his country.
H It Is especially prized by Its ran
H fcer bccauBe, after a careful investl-
H Ration Air. Haddcn has becomo con-
vlnccd that tho treo lived during
H Wnshlngton'n tlmo and was probnb-
H y standing on tho day of the mem-
H orablo surrender at Fort Necessity,
H July
H . At all events tho bust made from
H tho stump or this old treo links tho
M I past with tho present n singular
H ' fashion. Mr. Haddcn spent much
H I tlmo In oxperlmcntlng with methods
H j to bo uscl In constructing tho model
H I finally hitting upon a plan that was
H satisfactory, and completing tho
H work In tho latter part of 1912.
H In constructing tho bust ho procur-
H od n plaster cast over which a plas-
1 1 tcr matrix was formed. Wood taken
H . from tho old stump was reduced to
H j sawdust, this being mndo necessary
H I on account of tho trco being hollow.
B Just enough monolith cement was
H ndded to cause tho sawdust to ad-
H here and solidify. Tho plaster cast
H was then removed from tho mntrlx
H and replaced by the cherry trco
H wood, thus producing a replica In tho
H Tho bust has been on exhibition
H in Unlontown and has called forth
H tho most favorable commendations
H from those who hiVo Inspected it.
H Certificates havo been obtained by
BBBBBj Mr. Haddcn from persons who wlt-
H ncssed thu reduction of thu old
H stump to suwdUBt and the construe-
H tlon of tho sculpttiro to prove tho
H genuineness of tho memento.
H Mr. Hnddeu's recital of tho his-
H torlcaul events connected with tho
H surrender at Fort Neccssit' adds a
H new touch or Interest to Washiug-
H ton'H early military career, and ensl-
H ly explains why so much tlmo and
H labor should havo been sient by him
H In constructing a buat or tho first
H decayed remains of n wild cherry
H treo.
H "ThoHo who mo at all conversant
H with American history," he Btatcs,

"News of the defeat of Jumonvlllo

a largo forco of French and tholr
Indian allies, under tho command of

Kngllsh. Un the third day of July
they found Washington and his small
army of 400 provincial troops hud

lasted for nine hours In a drenching

1754, there occurred tho ever memo

hero also arose tho star of Washing

Tho account continues that Wash
ington so revered tho ground on
which Fort Necessity Is located thnt
as early as 17G7, ho acquired from
Virginia, which at that tlmo claimed
tho territory, a pre-emption of a
tract of 313 ncres Including Fort
Necessity, under tho nnmo of "Mount
Washington." February 18, 1872,
tho commonwealth ot Pennsylvania
granted n patent to Oeorgo Washing

tract was surveyed by vlrtuo of an
order Issued Juno 13, 17C9, to Wil
liam Ilrooks, who, by deed dated
October 17, 1771, conveyed the same
