Tommy I got licked. THE LITTLE HATCHET MYTH. Its Origlu and Development Evolved by 11 Highly Moral Liar. "Father, I cannot tell a lie I did it with my little hatchet!" Who cau think of the Father of his Country without re calling this affecting story? And yet, like so many other cherished anecdotes of great men, it is absolutely withont foundation. His name was M. L. Weems. He was a clergyman or preacher by profession, an adventurer by nature, and loved no toriety, money and a wandering life. So lie wrote books which he correctly believed would meet with popular favor, and peddled them himself as he trav eled through the country. Chance brought him to Mount Vernon in the closing days of Wellington's life, and his commercial instinct at once told him here was a chance for distinction and dollars such as ho had never met be fore. So ho produced his famous biog raphy, and being tho first on the ground he had things his own way and ran rot in langnago and alleged reminiscences. The best known of his myths are those concerning the little hatchet, the refusal to fight or permit fighting among tho boys at school, and the initials in the garden. The last is to the effect that little George's father planted seeds in such a manner that when they sprouted they formed the initials of the boy's name, and ho being uracil delighted, the elder Washington explained that it was the work of the Creator, and thus inculcated a profound belief in God. This tale is stolen bodily from Dr. Beat tie's biographical sketch of his son, pub lished in England in 1799. There is not a scintilla of evidence to support the others. But let us examino the little hatchet story. Tho father of the young hero, we are told, took groat pains to inspire his son with an early love of truth. Af ter describing the downward course of the prevaricator he is made to exclaim: "Rather than see you come to this pass, "I DID IT WITH MY LITTLE HATCHET. dear as you are to my heart, gladly wonld I assist to nail you up in your lit tle coffin and follow yon to your grave. Hard, indeed, would it be to give up my sou, whose lit tl-j feet are always so ready to run about with me, and whose fondly looking eyes and sweet prattle make so large a part of my happiness, but still I would give him np rather than see him a common liar." He next as sures George that while some parents compel their children to become liars "by barbarously beating them for every little fault, it shall not be so in tneir case. "Whenever, by accident, yon do anything wroug, whioh must often be the case, as y j are but a poor little boy yet, without experience or knowledge, you must never tell a falsehood to con ceal it. but come bravely up, my son, like a little man, and tell me of it, and instead of beating you, George, I will but the more honor nd love you for it, my dear." Need we longer marvel at George's penchant for mischief and his readiness to own nn? The anecdote, told in Weems' rambling manner, is as amusing as the prelimi nary remarks. He gives as his authority "an excellent old lady," and declares that the narrative is "too valuable to be lost and too trno to be doubted." The climax reminds one of Bill Nye in his happiest vein: "Presently George and his little hatchet made their appearance. 'George,' said his father, 'do you know who killed that beautiful little cherry tree yonder in the garden?' This was a tough ques tion, and George staggered under it for a moment, but quickly recovered him self, and looking at his father with the sweet face of youth brightened with the inexpressible charm of all conquering truth, he bravely cried out: 'I can't tell a lie, pa; you know I can't tell a lie, I did cut it with my hatchet.' 'Run to my arms, you dearest boy,' cried bis father in transports, 'run to my arms; glad am I, George, that you killed my tree he puts a premium upon mischief for the sake of hearing the truth, for you have paid me for it a thousand fold. Such an act of heroism although the lad knew in advance that he would not be punished but commended, my son, is more worth than a thousand trees, though blossomed with silver and their fruits of purest gold." Though ignored by Sparks, Marshall, Washington Irving, Ramsay, Lossing and attacked by other serious biogra phers, the myth of the little hatchet has survived, and probably will survive for ages to come. Its acceptance and popu larity are largely due to writers like Mrs. C. M. Kirkland, who, in 1857, published a life of Washington "especially adapted to young people," in which she praises Weems' "entertaining book" and "the poetic style of the narrator," and declares that the various anecdotes are "told with the richness of Jean Paul," and, in her opinion, on good authority. Shorn of its weak preliminaries and told as if the youthful culprit expected punishment, the hatchet Btory became a favorite selection in the common school readers, and served as excellent a pur pose as the best fable from .fEsop. The advent of the American humorist and the birth of the comic press made it still more familiar, and what with the naming of a comedy and a newt-paior in its honor, the little hatchet lias passed into a proverb, and, strange to say. be come the very synonym for truth.

George L. Kilmer. Mount Vernon has so long been public property that few rememter wisat a tedious negotiation was required to ob tain it and how one of the Washingtons speculated on the nation's love. In 1853 the Ladies' Mount Vernon association paid John A. Washington $200,000 for the mansion and 200 acres of land. The country has therefore consented to for get John. From the death of Washington till the civil war it was an almost invariable rule that each new state should have a Washington county, and many counties i in each a Washington township. So, of the thirteen states without a Washing ton county, six were too old and five are apparently too new. ! ' MM I 111 . I ""-i.- 1 1 ith -Mps Mil lllNili RELICS OF WASHINGTON. AN OBSCURE BUNDLE OF ANTIQUI TIES FROM THE LAST CENTURY. Oar Correspondent Pays s Visit to MaJ. George It. Clltherall, of Mobile, and the Discoveries He Made' Will Be of Interest to Ail of fncle Sam's People. Not far from Government, on St. Emanuel Rtreet, in Mobile, Ala., there stands' an unpretentious brick house. The curious stranger will be faintly re minded as he enters the arcade of 'this homely dwelling; with its solitary occu pant, of those houses which are common to some quarters of New Orleans. Of this, however, there is perhaps more about the air of the place than any real resemblance to those antiquated .creole quarters. Afi he enters the parlor, with its central bay window that juts out to the sidewalk, he will involuntarily pause before an ancient and venerable book case, and if he be of a literary turn of mind will note with a more than pass ing interest the heterogeneous mass of books that with all their variety of bindings crowd close to each other upon its time honored shelves. . It was before this musty piece of fur niture that I stood just about a year ago when I was in Mobile. Upon the top Bhelf was a chaotic piece of accumulated bric-a-brac such as you may see clus tered together on the top shelf of any old bookcase, and among other things there Wiis a brown paper parcel tied with a piece of old string, and of such an unassuming N appearance that if it were lyiug iu the street it would attract scarcely a glance from the passer by; and yet it would be difficult to find a cluster of objects of such unusual inter est as this faded brown paper contained. It contained, among other colonial rel ics, George Washington's slipper, a part of his vest, his Masonic apron and two silver spoons from his camp chest. There were also copies of some old news papers The New York Morning Post of Nov. 7, 1783, The Boston Gazette and Country Journal of March 12, 1770, The JSew England W eekiy Journal (publish ed in Boston) of April 8, 1728, The New born (N. C.) Spectator, Dec. 19, 1829, and The Federal Republican (Newberu, N. C.) July 31, 1 SIS. There was also a package of colonial money and an old time pock etbook. To the right of the bookcase, with it.-i mahogany back leaning against GEORGE P. CLITHERALL. - the wall, stood an old fashioned chair looking very much like those stiffs kitch en chairs of the present day, albeit more elegant in appearance. This piece of an tiquated mahogany is a bedroom chair which was the property of Martha Wash ington, or, as she was lovingly called by Maj. Clitherall's family, "Mistress Wash ington." Maj. George B. Clitherall, whose death has occurred since my visit to Mobile, was the devoted possessor of these relics, and the last survivor of a family which stands among the first in a republic that gained its independence through the im mortal name of George Washington. The history of the Clitherall family in America on the maternal side dates back to the Rev. Richard Marsden, who was chaplain to the Duke of Portland, and who received from the original lords proprietors the ownership of the two plantations known as "The Hermitage" and "Castle LTaynes," lying on opposite sides of the old country road, eight miles north of Wilmington, N. C. Maj. Clitherall's father, Dr. George B. Clitherall, was a relative and inti mate friend of Gen. Ben Smith, of North Carolina, who died at Fort John ston in 1826. Gen. Smith was a man of high social position and great wealth, and married Sarah, daughter of CoL William Dry, who was colonial gov ernor of North Carolina. During the Revolution Gc-a. Smith was a volunteer member of Washington's staff and mili tary family, and there always existed between them the wannest friendship. When Gen. Smith learned of the illness of Washington he immediately left his homo in North Carolina and hastened to the bedside of his chief, where he re mained until Washington died. Many of the personal belongings of Washing ton were presented by his family to Gen. Smith, who cherished them as long as he lived, and at hi3 death they were be queathed to Dr. ClitheralL Maj. Clitherall had but one of the slip pers (the left) in his possession, the mate having been given by his mother to the British Museum in I80O. In 1876 the major presented one of Washington's Masonic aprons (of which there are two) to . a lodge in Philadelphia, and on the day of my visit he sent Washington's library chair to the Minnesota Historical society. With the exception of this chair, the right slipper and one of the Masonic aprons, the rest of the articles were in Maj. Clitherall's possession. The now famous slippers did not Gen. Smith in the same way 1 other relics did. Gen. Washing! his farewell address, went k Smith a visit at the resid latter in North Carolina here tliat he brought turning home he left and thev were carel an old clfiset, and 1 until t '.! r v served. sessio; inc! haw on' as M served. 7 deniably had a substantial fonndationlt will be seen from this that his foot was not too large for a man of his stature.) The slipper is of red morocco leather, but time has covered it with a dusty brown color, and a careless observer wonld place it in the rank of those cheap brown leather foot coverings which, however much of comfort they may pos sess, cannot be allowed to have that styl ish appearance which marks the slipper of the man of fashion. Originally the slippers are said to &t Ven lined with white silk. When the imagination goes back to the time that these new faded ft WASHINGTON'S CHAIR, pieces of antiquity were new, and pict ures them in their original colors, the rich and elegant red of the morocco con trasted with the white silk, the flaps, which somehow remind us of those old fashioned curled up skates that the Hol landers used of yore, and the deep wrinkles which lent to them their easy and comfortable air, we must readily believe that these slippers presented a simple, rich and elegant appearance. They serve in a great measure to show that the taste of this great man tended toward simplicity, at the same time uniting with that refinement which al ways selects the best. We have as an other example of this the story of Wash ington's watch familiar to every school boy which he desired should come to him from France, of pure gold, but per fectly plain, so that its smooth and pol ished sides, had the Father of his Coun try been a vain man, might have served the uses of a looking glass. Nothing remains of the waistcoat which has already been alluded to but the huge hip flap and pocket laps which were such an important part of this gar ment during the colonial days. From this flap it is impossible to obtain a com plete idea of the whole. It may be said. however, that it is sea green m color, richly embroidered in silk with figures, and when new must have presented very handsome appearance. Only one thing more remains to be said. Maj. Clitherall was, from time to time, in receipt of various letters of inquiry from different parts of the country bearing upon these unique and valuable possessions, and I have endeav ored in the present article to cover the entire ground, however briefly, and it is to be hoped that it will bo copied widely enough to fall into tho hands of all those who have been more especially interested m the matters touched upon. It was not without a feeling of venera tion that I said good-by to these ancient relics, whose authenticity cannot be WASHINGTON'S SLIPPER. questioned, and paid a sorrowful adieu to the courteous and scholarly owner of so much that is of historical valne.
