the Alamo 8 eoon as plans, designed by State Superintendent of Pub lic Buildings and Grounds A. b B. Conley, and approved by Governor Colquitt, can be car- A lied Into execution, the historic Ala mo will present a different appearance to visitors to Sen Antonio, and, for that matter, to San Antonians them selves. Governor Colquitt wants the old mission, where the seed that sprouted Into Texas liberty was first planted, to be restored to as nearly its original condition as possible. There has been for years a differ ence of view as to Just what was the physical condition of the Alamo on the 6tb of March, 1836, and an even greater divergence of opinion as to the actual arrangement of the old con vent structure adjoining. But Gov ernor Colquitt is not willing for mere differences of this nature to longer re tard the doing of a public work that should have been attended to long ago. At a cost of $60,000 the state, sev eral years ago. bought of Hugo- Schmeltzer Sc Co. the old convent property adjoining the Alamo chapel. This wholesale grocery firm had been using for commercial purposes part of a property dear to liberty lovers ev erywhere. Nobody thought any the less of them under the circumstances, and when a movement to have the state take over the' land and the old walls was crystallized, the price fixed by the Hugo-Schmeltzer interests was so sat isfactory as to seem generous. The property bought for $50,000 would probably sell today for ten times this sum. It Is the purpose of the governor to have the entire mission renovated and made to look Just like It did when It was used by the Franciscan monks and the sisters who conducted the convent. Already the tenants who were using the old buildings have been ousted. It Is desired after all the debris is removed, to make a park of the lnclosure and to have It just as much of a beauty spot as Is the re mainder of Alamo plaza. Architects and landscape experts say this can be done within a very few years, and there Is not a San Antonian who does not hall the plans with pleasure. Nobody ought to form the idea that the Alamo chapel, the old church where the massacre of Crockett and Bowie and the rest of those dauntless eouls took place, has ever been used except as a Bhow-place, as the shrine of many thousands who have Journey ed thither from all parts of the world. It Is true, however, that tradesmen for years occupied the old convent, which once formed the lar ger part of the mission proper. It was not until a few months ago that all these men were forbidden to use the premises. No other spot In Texas, and few anywhere In the world, are filled with half the historic interest that at taches to the Alamo. It has been known to historians for 75 years as "the cradle of Texas liberty," and it deserves. In the mind of every Texan, all the glory that has been heaped upon It. It is a matter of regret and humiliation to every Texan that bet ter care has not been taken of the old pile and all Its adjuncts by the state authorities. Story of the Alamo. Know the story of the Alamo? It’s fine stuff for American men. It stands out in the historic pages of the past century as the true expression of the Lone Star spirit. It was on the 23d of February. 1836. that General Santa Ana, with an army of 4,000 Mexicans, Invested the vil lage of San Antonio, and stormed the Alamo. Texas had been declared in a state of rebellion, the inhabitants had been ordered to disarm, and the invasion of Santa Ana had followed as thunder follows the lightning flash. Gen. Sam Houston, the military lead er of the "rebels” had no army There were no railroad or telegraph lines by which to summon the scattered fight ers. But Colonel Travis, with Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie, J. B. Bonham, J. Washington and 183 ""exas frontiers men, were in San Antonio when the Mexican army appeared, and at once resolved to barricade the Alamo, and hold the enemy until Houston was ready. At first there was a slender chance of rescue, but It disappeared a.s the days went by. and the rifle men quickly knew that the fate of Texas rested upon them. There was no talk of surrender, of safety, of es cape. They knew that the world would not hear of their prowess until after they were dust; that there was no gallery of admiring friends to cheer them to their doom; the foe outnumbered them 20 to 1; horse, foot and artillery stormed, enfiladed, rushed them. Hungry, famished and without sleep, they crouched upon the flat roof of thA Alamo, behind the low masonry of the projecting walls for'days and nights, as cool as squirrel hunters, as gay as boys in a snowball fight, as patient and as relentless as the vindictive Indian at bay. The fate of Texas was in their hands, and they knew It. But when, at last, their am munition gone, and quick death at hand. Colonel Travis asked them how many wished to “stay with him to the finish," only one man hesitated. He had fought well for ten days. He was brave, but he preferred to live. I think It was Crockett who said: "Oh. come on, Mr. Rose; you've got to die anyhow, some day. Might as well die with us." And he said It without recrimina tion, without a sneer, just as he would have said: "Be a good fellow and take a drink with us!" It was early the next morning, after Rose had been aided to escape, that the Mexicans knew that the hour of revenge was at hand. The crack of the rifles from the roof became Infre quent and then ceased. A thousand of Banta Ana’s men had already fallen and were burled. Three thousand more, with fixed bayonets, backed by a park of artillery and equipped with The Alamo. ladders, now surged to the final as sault. Up they swarmed like angry bees to be met at the summit by the gaunt Texans, a handful now, but terrible In the last ecBtacy of a sub lime and superhuman sacrifice. The awful "Bowie Knife," clubbed rifles, boards wrenched from the altars of the desecrated church, such were the weapons with which this forlorn gar rison met and hurled from the walls In two short hours nearly a thousand dead and dying Mexicans. And when, by sheer weight of numbers, they were at last forced, step by step, from the embattled roof of this house of heroism, they descended Into the dark church to make a last rally by the cot where the wounded, fever smitten Bowie lay, his pistols loaded with a farewell volley. It was here that Bowie died, transfixed by a score of Mexican bayonets. Outside, In sound of his leader’s voice, Crock ett, gigantic and laughing to the end. his back against the barred oaken door of the church, smote with his up lifted rlflo until a hundred enemies fell beneath his thrashing flail. And' Travis, dying at his feet, could only cheer for Texas. And so they per ished, every one. And the "con quering" Mexicans bore their bodies to the Alameda, now a part of Con gress street, and built a pyre which was the beacon of Texas freedom. The next moon saw the battle of San Jacluto. where Houston led to vic tory his little army, crying "Remem ber the Alamo!" GEORGE D. ARMISTEAO. Drawing Big Cities Together. Interest has again been aroused throughout Germany at the prospect of a telephone service being installed between London and Berlin, and the hope Is generally expressed that the project will soon be realized.

Firm -In Religious Tents. Lord Camoys. who Is engaged to Miss Mildred Sherman, is the head of one of the few English Roman Cath olic families of distinction who have never conformed to the established church. The surname of the family is Stonor, a name taken from the family estate In Oxfordshire, which has been held by It traditionally from before the Norman conquest. The chapel at Stonor. which dates from the end of the fourteenth century, is one of the very few prereformation buildings in England In which mass has been said without a break to the present time. The Tory of Valley Forge By GILBERT PATTEN BROWN from the CHRISTIAN HERALD IT WAS a cold day In February in the year of grace 1778, and the patriot army lay in winter quar 3 ters at Valley Forge. ,The bleak winds that swept across Cedar Hol low were tearing through the huts of the freezing soldiers. Down near the Potts mansion Is seen an old man slowly making his way toward the out post of Washington’s guard. "Who comes here?” asked the picket. "Peter Davis," was the reply, “and I want to see Mr. George Washington, the rebel chief," continued the aged peasant. Ah, he Is thinking of the critical situation of the troops of the colonies; he has been a most wicked man; he has wronged the cause of liberty; be fore him is the awful sight of the bloody footprints In the snow of those three hideous figures that sit down In the huts of Valley Forge together— Disease, Starvation and Nakedness. If you, reader, will now approach the scene, I will Introduce to you a Tory, an Englishman by birth, a strong defender of the king, and a spy for Lord Howe’s army while they are en joying the festivities of gay Philadel phia His two sons are soldiers In the Continental army, and the old man has come to ask permission of Wash ington to visit them as they are now freezing at Valley Forge. Soon a tall man comes upon the scene. The Tory trembles. It Is Gen eral Washington, who has come to greet the old man and to hear his pitiful story. "What Is your mission, my dear man?” asked the patriot chief, as he looked with love Into the face of the stranger. "Well, Mr. Washington, you 6ee It Is like this: you’re a rebel and I am a Tory; but I want to see my two boys.” "Come In and get warm, sir, and I will try to find them,” replied the dis tinguished Virginian. Soon General Washington summons to his headquarters the adjutant gen eral of the Continental army. "General,” said he, "this man Is Mr. Davis, a farmer and a Tory; but even the rights of a Tory must be respected by the army of the Thirteen Colonies. Vou will find among the enrolled men James and John Davis; It Is General Washington. and if they are well, dispatch them to my headquarters." At this juncture, the countersign is given at the door, and there enters the spacious room Rev. Israel Evans, chaplain of the New York brigade. "Good morning, chaplain.” said Washington. "Good morning, general," was his reply. "On this, your forty-sixth birth day, I bring to you the greetings of Chancellor Livingston, and here’s a box of dainties with the compliments of Mrs. Livingston." "May heaven bless them!” replied the glad recipient. "So, general, thiß Is your birthday; forty-six years? I am nearly twice your age.” slowly remarked the Tory; "and I fear God has forgotten me long ago.” The care-worn features of the gen eral and the peaceful face of the chap lain seemed deeply to affect the aged man. A moment of silence prevails, when the old man bursts into tears. "Let us pray," said the army chap lain. "Will you not kneel with the general and myself, Mr. Davis?” asked the reverend gentleman. The stranger fell to his knees, and a prayer went forth that Peter Davis should no longer remain a Tory or an enemy to human Justice. Soon tho sun-dial told the hour of high noon, and the Tory was seated at the dinner table of General Wash ington. In a short time, his two sons arrived; the meeting was a most Joy ful one. Peter Davis went home a changed man that afternoon. He no longer act ed as a spy for Lord Howe’s army. The Davis farmhouse was at the serv ice of the Continentals during the re mainder of their stay at Valley Forge. He lived to see the Independence of the Colonies, and many times during the evening of his life, he thanked his Maker that to his heart there came courage to visit General Washington among the huts of the - Continental army during the darkest days of war waged against British despotism. Washington Shields Five Distinct Specimen* Ate Known, but Heralds Declare Their Origin Is the Same THERE are five distinct Washington shields, but In the heraldic records they are pronounced of the same ori gin, as follows: A silver (argent) shield upon which are two red (gules) bars; In the top (chief) three red mullets (spurs of knights’ boots). A red (gules) shield with ‘a single white (sliver) bar charged with three mullets. A red shield with a white bar upon which are three clnguefollles, also red. A red shield with two bars white. In chief three martlets. A shield of four bars, white and red, three mullets. A shield In green, a lion rampant In white, within border gobonated white and blue. These constituted the heraldic arms of all Washington people as recorded In the English College of Heralds. Washington shields upon his choice tokens and valuables. Washington was fond of genealogi cal Investigations, and in the College of Heralds can be seen a score or more of pages he wrote at various times In his eager search after family arms and crests. He was proud of his heraldic ancestors, and this family es timate is well expressed In the fre quency with which he blazoned the Washington shields upon his plate. In Early Days “Republican Simplicity” Was by No Means the Rule During the Regime of Washington PRESIDENT WASHINGTON never went to congress on public busi ness except In a stage coach drawn by six cream-colored horses. The coach was an object which would ex cite the admiration of the throngs 'even now In our streets. It was built in the shape of a hemisphere, and Its panels were adorned with cuplds sur rounded with flowers and fruits. The coachman and JiStiHons were arrayed In gorgeous ttverles of white and scarlet. C\ The Phftadelphfl Gasette. a govern ment organ, regularly gave out court news for the edification of the citi zens. From this Journal the people were permitted to learn as much as it was deemed proper they should know about the president’s movements, and a fair amount of space was also de voted to Mrs. Washington, who was, however, not referred to as "Mrs. Washington,” but as "the amiable consort of our beloved president." When the president made his appear ance at a ball or a public reception a dais was erected for him, upon which he might stand apart from the throng, and the guests or visitors bowed to him In solemn silence. "Republican simplicity” has only come In later times. Very few per sons presumed to shake hands with General Washington. One of his friends. Governor Morris, rashly undertook, for a foolish wager, to go up to him and slap him on the shoul der, saying: "My dear general, I am happy to see you so well.” At least there Is a tradition to that effect. The moment fixed upon arrived, and Mr. Morris, already half-repenting of his wager, went up to Washington, placed his hand upon his shoulder and ut tered the prescribed words. Wash ington. as the story has It, stepped suddenly back, fixed bis gaze upon Morris for several moments with an angry frown, until the latter retreated abashed and sought refuge In the crowd. No one else ever tried a sim ilar experiment. No royal levees were more punctiliously arranged than those of our first president. Raven, Not Eagle George Washington’s Coat-of-Arms Did Not Suggest Emblem of America’s National Bird H' [UNDREDS of writers have an nounced that the crest on General George Washington’s coat-of-armß Is an eagle, and that this family emblem was the foundation of the suggestion that the eagle be the emblem of the American republic. While the crest may appear like an eagle, the facts are that the heraldic grant of arms to this Washington branch present a raven issuing from a golden ducaJ crown, the crest of the family. Fur thermore, Washington himself clearly shows by correspondence with the her ald’s office at London that it was not an eagle, and the letter Is dated ten years after the eagle had become the emblem of tho republic (June 20, 1782). His letter was sent from Phila delphia May 2, 1792, the third year of his presidency, and the package was sealed with the Washington family arms, as Is Indicated in a letter which reads: "The arms inclosed In your letter are the same that are held by the family here; though I have also seen, and havo used, as you may perceive by the senl to this packet, a flying griffin for the crest." A Mix-Up. “The old man found the scheme of his employes to ’do’ him a well cooked up plan, didn’t he?” “Yes; that is what touched him on the raw.” IVashing ton Statue in Boston Public Gardens More About the English Home of the Washingtons PROPOSITION seri ously engaging the at tention of the English people and press Is that Sulgrave manor, in Northamptonshire, a. the home of George Washington’s an cestors, shall be purchased by public subscription In both countries as a visible monument to the cordial rela tions existing between the two great branches of the English-speaking race. Sulgrave Is the place in England most closely associated wkh the name of Washington. It Is true that George himself attached little Importance to this fact. In the early days of the American republic, anpestry was de spised much more than Is now the case. In 1788 he refused to accept the dedication of a book on heraldry because a portion of the community were "clamorously endeavoring to propagate an Idea that those whom they wished* Invidiously to designate by the name of ‘well-born’ were medi tating in the first Instance to distin guish themselves from their compat riots and to wrest the dearest privil eges from the bulk of the people." An cestry today Is much more regarded in America than It was a hundred years ago. Washington knew very little about hU own forefathers. When he was asked about them by the garter klng-at-arms. he said the first of his family in Virginia had come from one of the northern counties In England. Yorkshire or Lancashire, or -even one still further north. Later there was much disputation about his family tree, but It was finally agreed that the Washingtons of Sulgrave and Brlngton did actually spring from the Washing tons of Wart on In Lancashire, a place on the Westmoreland border. Several Graves of Washington’s Ancestors, Sulgrave, England. generations of Washingtons of War ton are recorded, and one of these was the father of Laurence Washington, mayor of Northampton In 1532 and 1545. He seems to have taken up his residence at Sulgrave, though the members of his family continued to remain at Warton for several gener ations. This Laurence Washington had for mother the daughter of Robert Kytson of Warton, and a sis ter of Sir Thomas Kytson of Hen grave in Suffolk. This proved a mat ter of very considerable Importance 1n their history, because it brought them Into connection with the Spencers of Althorp and Wormleighton, through the marriage of Sir Thomas Kytson's daughter, Catherine, to Sir John Spen cer of Wormleighton, whose grand son, Sir Robert Spencer, was created Raron Spencer of Wormleighton In 1603. In process of time the Wash ingtons of Bulgravo appear to have got Into financial difficulties. Lau rence Washington entered the wool trade, perhaps induced to do so by the fact that Lord Spencer was one of the great flock-masters of his day. This Laurence acquired great riches In the wool trade. In 1539 he became pos sessed of the manor of Sulgrave for the sum of £321 14s. 10d., and sub sequently he purchased additional property. He had many sons, of whom the oldest was Robert, the an cestor of George Washington. He suc ceeded his father in 1585, when he was of the age of forty. He does not seem to have been so prosperous as his father, and yet seems to have been able to send both his sons, Christo pher and William, to Oriel collego. Ox ford, where they were in 1588, the year of the Great Armada. Robert's eldest son was named Laurence, prob ably after the mayor of Northampton, and In 1610 he. In agreement with his son, agreed to sell Sulgrave to their cousin, Laurence Makepeace. The second Laurence Washington then re moved to Brlngton, near Northampton, his father, perhaps, going with him, though the latter was burled in the family vault at Sulgrave. Laurence Washington had seventeen children, two of whom rose to high positions and were knighted—Sir William Wash ington of Packington In 1622, and Sir John Washington of Thrapston In 1628. But the younger members of the fam ily were becoming Impecunious. This, then, was the connection of the fam ily of Washington with Sulgrave man or. It Is a very Interesting one. The manor oould not be properly described as one of the stately homes of Eng land. It was built at a good time, but It Is not a very fine example of the period. Nevertheless, a single glance at the pictures of the really grand old place will show how essen tially English are the architecture and its surroundings. It would have been a very befitting action had It fallen to the lot of the celebrants In Great Brit tain to think first of Sulgrave and to have offered It as a free gift to the United States. The inhabitants of the latter could have made good use of it. It has long been the object of many a pilgrimage on the part of Americans in Europe, and It might have been a rallying ground and a center where objects of interest to them could be collected. Something of the kind may yet be done; but perhaps It is better that all of those who are Interested In keeping the centenary of the sig nature of peace should take a share In the acquisition of this memorial of Washington. Volunteer Fireman True Public Spirit of the First President Is Shown in Signi ficant Action Recorded One of the facts in the hißtory of George Washington which most his torians fall to mention Is that he was a volunteer flrqman. About 1760 he enrolled himself in the volunteer fire company at Alexandria, Va. It Is related that bn more than one occasion when Washington learned that there was a fire in the vicinity of Alexandia which had called out the firemen he mounted his horse and rode thither from Mount Vernon. The records of the place show that when the volunteer fire department was or ganized each member agreed "out of mutual friendship" to carry to every fire "two leathern buckets and one great bag of oznaburg or wider linen," which was the primitive means of ex tinguishing a fire. The Friendship Fire company of Alexandria was organized in 1774, at which time Washington was a dele gate to the Continental congress In Philadelphia. The members of the company, remembering Washington’s former services as a fireman, elected him an honorary member at their first meeting, and forwarded him a copy ol the minutes. To show his appreciation of the compliment, he at once made a thor ough inspection of the different kinds of fire engines in use in Philadelphia, and upon his second return there In 1775, he bought from one Gibbs a small fourth-class engine for 8C pounds and ten shillings, and just be fore he set out for Boston to become commander-ln-chief of the Contlnen tal army sent this little engine as a present to the Friendship company. Washington did not lobo his inter est In fire matters through his eleva tion to position and power. Upon his retirement to Mount Vernon, after his second term as president, and when his fame spread around the world, he continued to take active Interest in the volunteer fire department, and aided It In many ways. Dark Outlook. The two lords of creation are en joying a quiet smoke In the hotel lob by, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Says one: “What do you think of that I Here’s an Item In this paper which states that a St. Paul man has won a prize for embroidering a lunch cloth.” Says the other: "Say, ain’t that a great little suggestion for wives whose time Is all taken up by bridgeT” The first one: "Sure It is.

Better Keep Her. Edgar,' who had in his orisons been making nightly appeals tor a little brother, was sent a few evenings ago to visit his grandparents. When he returned home on the following morn ing he was informed that the stork had brought him a sister. Edgar was sadly disappointed and disposed to hastily conclude that prayer was fu tile. After some delay, however, he consented to permit the nurse to lead him to the basket in which his little sister lay. He looked at her long and earnestly, and then, as if a great weight had been lifted from his mind, Bald: “Well, she looks intelligent, any how.’ Musical Economy. “What’s all that racket about in the parloi ?” asked the father. “Why, that’s Mary and Jane play ing a duet on the piano,” explained mother. “Both of ’em playing at once?” “Yes; it’s a duet.” “Well, can’t they wear out the piano fast enough playing one at a time?” Cotton Stalks for Papermaking. “In the use of cotton stalks for the manufacture of paper, great trouble is caused by the difficulty of separating the brown bark, the retention of which discolors the resulting pulp, and so limits the use of the stalks in papermaking,” says Paper, “but brown paper from the stalks, bark and all, has been successfully manu fact’lled, it Is asserted, In a Southern paper mill.” - True Pacific. That incessant Joker, M. Tristan Bernard, was chatting about the peac3 movement with some friends the other evening, and somebody re marked to him that peace at any price was quite an impossibility. “For instance," he said, "if an ‘apache’ cornered you in the street one dark night, hurt you, and took your watch and chain away?" “I don’t think I would ever talk to him again," said Tristan Bernard quietiy. And a day or two back, as we were driving up the Champs Elysees to gether in an open, horse-drawn cab, a taxicab bumped into us from behind. Tristan turned slowly around. "My friend," he said to the chauf feur, "if you want to get in and drive with us, get in by all means, but I warn you beforehand that we haven’t got loom for your car.” Lizard Head Peak Still Stands. Shall the mountain come to Ma homet? In the West sensational news paper writers seem to be determined that it shall, if the prophet happens to be near the foot of the peak. Of late we have read numerous stories of sliding mountains, slipping mountains, the demolition of the cross on the Mount of the Holy Cross (which was conclusively proved untrue), etc., etc. And to these was recently added a plausible tale to the effect that Lizard Head (altitude 13,156 feet), one of the most striking peaks In southwestern Colorado, on the Rio Grande Southern Railroad, had yielded to the force of gravity and topled over,—or at least a great portion of it. But, alas for the credulous newspaper man! The rail road superintendent now states author itatively that the published report of the accident was due to a joke perpe trated on the dally press, which Inno cently published the item; and, it be ing a most attractive calamity, the news was reprinted broadcast through out the land.
