Pennsylvania Roadhouse That Stood Squarely Between the British and American Armies. The advent of national prohibition sounded the death knell for many roadhouses scattered throughout the country districts. The stopping places of tourists, the Mecca of motorists and the scenes of many Impromptu parties, these places for many years held a corner in the hearts of the American public that gave them a place of almost equal Importance with the circus and the chautauqua. Few, however, survived long after January 16, 1920, because the main source of their Income was gone. One of the most popular roadhouses within several hundred miles of the city, for many years a Mecca for prom inent Philadelphláns on their hikes and rambles, has to somé extent sur vived and still opens its doors to thou sands of tourlste each month. It Is the old Jeffersonville inn located on the corner of Egypt road and Ridge pike, about seven miles from historic Valley Forge and about two miles northwest of Norrlstown. It Is better known to Its friends as Tom Brown inn, by which name It went for many years. Surrounded by spots made famous because of their connection with events of the Revolution, itself per meated with historical associations, the Inn held the Interest and patronage of many educated men because of the stories and data of historical events so closely connected with the old building. ' The house was built In 1765 and was besieged by the British and partially destroyed ten years later. This site was in the neutral gróund between the established lines of both the Brit ish and American armies, and was constantly scouted by horsemen of both armies. The Americans, when at Valley Forge, had their most easterly pickets at the Juncture of the two roads at Jeffersonville. At that time the Inn was owned by the Thompsons, who, because of their relationship to General Thompson and because of their open hostility to the royal cause, were objects of animosity to the Brit ish troops. And because of this the Inn was fired and partially destroyed. There Is a blood spot on the second Old Jeffersonville Inn. floor, said to be the result of a skir mish between a British and American soldier. The floors themselves slope toward the outer walls of the rooms at a terrifying angle, but because they are adjudged to be entirely safe, the floors that have felt the footsteps of many fighters of the Revolutionary war still remain to be trod upon by slioes of the Twentieth century. Once More the Nation Heralds Its Natal Day By T. C. HARBAUGH When Liberty called to a people op press'd They sprang as one man to the fray; They carried a banner by Providence bless'd, And it waves In Its glory today; Long a?o on the fields that their valor had won Our fathers triumphantly stood And lifted the emblem that glows In the sun And stained Its bright folds with their blood. How they stood long ago on the fields of their fame Let Trenton and Brandywine tell, Let Yorktown and Valley Forge echo each name ( To the tocsin of Liberty's bell; They sleep where the rivers flow down to the sea, Revered by all patriots true; They rest 'neath the rose and they camp 'neath the tree The men of the old Buff and Blue. Who sees not our banner in pride as it waves By the winds of America toss'd? Who drops not a tear on our forefathers' graves ' When he thinks what our Liberty cost? We are proud of our land In its lovelight divine. Aye, próud of the men of our wars; The stars In the heavens will never out shine The beauty of Old Glory's stars. We hall this bright day on the sea and the shore That tells us of Liberty's dawn, And the old Continentals seem marching once more As they did in the days that are gone; Their fame la eternal, for the fame never dies When the cause that is fought for Is Just; Look up! see our standard that's set in the skies. And honor the brave who are dust We are ONE in the land that they left us today. We are strong on the crest of the sea. And Liberty rules In her own gentle way; We are truly the home of the free; Forever and aye may the happy bells ring Till trembles the arch of the sky; Forever and aye may we gleefully sing Of the world's only Fourth of July.
