Mar's Wonderful Stomach Remedy is now sold here by Potter Drug Store, und druggists everywhere Adv EBECCA STODDERT (nee Rebec- ca Lowndes) was the daughter nf nhHatnnher Twndes. for merly of Cheshire, England, and his wife, Kllzabeth Tasker, daughter of Thomas Tasker, colonial, governor of Maryland. The following description of tne home in which Rebecca was born (1761), reared and married is given In a recent issue of La Follette's Maga zine: "The Lowndes home, an enormous white mansion, with six great chim neys and with porches surrounding the whole, was built in 1746 by Christo pher Lowndes, progenitor of the fa mous Lowndes family of Maryland. It is now owned and occupied by James II. Kyner, a retired railroad contractor from the west, with his wife and little daughter. Its interesting owners havo filled it with treasures and rare keep sakes, but occupy practically only a corner of the great house that in state lier days boasted a big retinue of ser vants. It was here that Washington once danced and where LaFayette was entertained on the occasion of his last visit to America." Family Conncnt to Mnrrlage. The matter of interest to us as a chapter regarding the marriage is the opposition of the parents to their daughter's union because of MaJ. Stod derfs ardent support of the colonies in their fight for freedom. It was while recovering from his wounds, inflicted at the battle of Brandywine. that Re becca's devotion to her soldier finally overcame the family disapproval, and she was married in the drawing room of the home in January, 177S, one hun dred and thirty six years ago. The Lowndes family always remained staifhch Tories, and were never in sym pathy with the daughter when she thus became a "Daughter of the Revolu tion." - Continuing to suffer from the effects of his wounds and the exposures of camp life, MaJ. Stoddert resigned from the army to retire to private life, but John Adams (afterwards president) at that time president of the "Board of War," immediately caused his appoint ment as secretary of the board. Maj. Stoddert was the first secretary of the American navv (see encyclo pedia's), being a member of the cabinet When Thomas Jefferson was inaugurated Maj. Stod dert. because of the di"iOurteous de parture from the rapital of dams ind the remaining members of his cabi net, was-ihe sole escort of the incoming president when he went to the building to take the oath of office. lliialmml In Jefferson's Cabinet. Remaining in Jefferson's cabinet, at his earnest solicitation, he was forced to. resign at the end of the year, as his financial condition was not sufficient for the needs of his rapjdly growing family. Leaving Philadelphia (then the capital) he returned to his home at Georgetown, the suburb of Washing ton at this time. Mention is maae ot tne various oi fices to the government rendered by MaJ. Stoddert, because Rebecca Stod dert (for whom this chapter is named) can lay no claim to fame during those troublous days of the revolution, and the trying times of the organization of the new republic, except as Inasmuch as a true and loyal wife gives her aid and Intelligent sympathy to her hus band In his public career. Letters Are Interesting. Some vears ago there appeared some published letters of Mrs. Stoddert. in teresting because of the description of social life of the period. Very primi tive it seems to us of this generation. She writes of Mrs. Adams (wife of the I nrnaidantl "running over after tea" With plum caite lor llie vuuuiuu; ul mo "president and his wife dropping in to supper;" of calling on Mrs. George Washiagton, who was visiting the cap ital, and of Mrs. Washington returning the call the afternoon of the same day. She told also of a party at the homo of the famous Mrs. Bingham, -how ex tremely late the dancing began, being almost 9 oclock; of the beautiful taste in which the banquet table was deco rated, on one end being a large orange tree with oranges ripe on its branches. at the other end immense pyramids of cakes, the foundation being a huge one, tlje cakes towering many feet in graduated sizes. Rebecca Stoddert's life was not a long one. While her young children were yet needing her care, the young est scarcely past babyhood, she was called to leave her earthly home. Fam ily tradition, as well as the Washing ton papers, of that time, record her many virtues, her devotion to those, dear to her, and her kind and loving help to all with whom she came in contact.
