WAsmHNrTON, May 30. 1885.
This is a favorite season for a visit
to Mount Vernon. The quaint old
homestead is even lovelier now than
in mid-summer. Thu association of
ladies who manage the W ashington
estate have been in annual session
there for inore than a week, and the
steamer that plys the Potomac daily
between this city and the tomb of
Washington. has been crowded with
pilgrims. It was in 1858 that Col.
John Washington sa that Mount
Vernon would ha.e to go by the auc
tioneer's hammer if something couhd
not he done to save it, and here comes
in the romance of Mount Vernon. A
woman who had been a confirmed in
valid from girlhood, raised a fund of
a2 )0.00t) and ea111odied a plai which
gave the home and tom 'b of Georg:
Washington to the nation. This was
Miss Cinninghain. of South C'arojina.
She had visited the -pot in her child
hood, and when c smpelled to give u
all of life except that which could be I
enjoyed in a sick room, the project of
buying Mount Vernon inspired her.
It was a singular linstallce of energy
and perseverance. From her sick bd
she aroured an enthusiasm. e.pecially
among southern Xwomen, which result
ed in splendid sucess. Edward Ev
erett caught her enthusia.m, and his
lecture on Washington. delivered in
different cities, brought money to the
Mount Yoernoo fund. She interested
Madam' Le Veot. and Mrs. Cora
M-twatt Ritchie. and in 186-) her work
ha 1 he en accomplish 5: the house.
the tomb, the farm of Washington,
including two hundred ares of land,
belonged to a national association.
The Legislature of Virgiiia granted
a charter to the association in perpu
tuity, and no disposition of the prop
erty can be inna'e without the consent
of the Legislature. None of tLe
Washington family were afterwards
interred at Mount Vernon. The key
vault was thrown into the Potomac
river. Within the brie: vault there
are twoa marble tomubs, those of George
arnd Martha Wathington. One looks
at them throough open iron work, and
"hat.; oTl" is the rule at the grave.
Aruntn these t;;mbs is a wooden f o r
intg, which if stepped upon starts an
electric alarm at the hoise. During
the bloodiest days of tho, war, Mount
Vernon was treated as neatralgroan 1.
and soldiers of both armies met 1n11
der the trees that overhang the to:nb.
The different States each have
charge of a room, so far as the rooms
in the old iiinsion hold out in nim
ber. The lady managers are called
Regents. and the Regent of each
State Ins b)een instrumiental ini hav

nearlyas p ;s sible in the style that pr;'
vailedi at :.Jliit \ernon during G;'n.
Washington's lifetimne Many of his
original article of furniture have
been gathered up1 and placed there
again and many relics of revolution
ary times may he seen in the various
rooms. Hanging in the entrance hall
is the key of the Bastile sent to Gen.
Washington by La Fayette, arid over
the door of the dining room is Wash
ingto s's field glass. said to have been
hung on its peg by his own hand and
naver sinco rem wed. The curious
mar >1e hearth and mantel in the din
ing r >om were sent from France. On
the way, the ship bearing the gift was
captured by ptiraites. When they
found the umarbile was intended for
Washington, they landed it on the
American shore. In a little drawing
room is the harpischord almost us
large as a modern p~iano1, which Wash
ington gave to Nellie Custis as a wed
ding present. The attic room which
Martha Washington occunied after
Gen. Washington's death, becautoe it
commanded a view of the tomb, is in
almost the identical condition in which
she left it.
Only one boat is allowed to land
sight-seers at Mount Vernon. The
round trip fee of one dollar foots up
handsomely at the end of a year. In
the past year 18,000 persons visited
the place. The green houses are aL o
a source of reveoue, a few flowers be
ing a favorite relic of the spot. There
is some complaint. that the managers
of Mount Vernon are making too
much money, and that they do not
sa end their revenues wisely. How
ever that may be, it costs considerable
to keep the estate up in its present
orndition. During the coming year
extensive repairs will have to be made
oa the roof and foundations of the
house, the tomb is to be drained and
a new wharf made, involving in all an
outlay of about $6,000. The R3gents
say that they do not mind unkind
critieisms for the fact that the place
was never before so attractive, never
so meuic v=iite 1.

At the late meeting of the Board of
County C'on iusioners the Great Falls
township was established and tIeorge E.
!illy was appointed Justice of the Peace.
This township i, hounded by the south
boundary of the county. Box Elder creek
and the Missourt river. A school district
was established with the same boundaries,
to he called ,Number Nine."
Mlessrt. Blankenbakor, Rolfe and Allen
were appolm.t41 viewers to lay out the

Robert Blankenbaker's place on Box El

We hope, however, no sectional feeling
will inter fore with this matter. It is a
matter of benefit tothe whole county and
is desired by a large numiber of citizens
who pay no small amount of the taxes,
and who have the right to ask that their
share of taxes he applied as they desire.
We are in receipt of a circular from -
the wool coumiission hotme of Walter
Brown & Co., in which they say: 'Our
representatives in ).ontaina, Vymoinuiag, B
(iliorai o, and other Territories, report an 01
improved condition of the wool over last tl
year. Particularly is this the case in Met:
tana where last year there was an unusual P
ainolut of weak stapled wool, whereas
this year, so far as we have learned, the
wool is sound and will prove very desira
hie as a substitute for eastern tfceces. The
most important feature in the wools from
this Territory, is the establishing during
the past season of the ine delaine grade,
which heretefor.' the worsted mills lhav.
felt could ontly be obtained from washed
fIleecs. As this selection coo:mands from
two to three cents per pound more tin:n
the clothing wools, the iierease in the
average price obtained will be readily op. n
preciated. The importance with wti Ich ft
Montana wools are now regarded by man- fr
ufacturers and t In' wool trade generally,
has led as to classify them separately in p
