ptinds preeminently at tin- bead. Nat
urally, and very rightly, ho holds the
first plane ln-our thought and in our
patriotic affections. The anniversary
f his birth has long been a legal holi
day, and if not observed with the fame
demonstrations of enthusiasm that
mark Independence day. is yet enough
of an event to turn our minds towards
Utis great and commanding tigure in
American history, to keep before us
this noble character and to stimulate
within us a truer love of u,r country,
together with a broader and higher
Jevotiuu t those principles of human
liberty for which Washington and our
It has often been said that we Amer
icans ure prone to hero worship, and
that to us our great men are paragons
of virtue and in all respects little less
than siiints There may be a modicum,
ol truth in this charge, but if there is
1 fail to see that we. as Americans,
bbuuld be ashamed of it.
George Washington well earned the
place he holds In history ami in the
hearts of his countrymen; and while
he was only human snd, therefore, sub
jtct to human frailties and weaknesses,

jie was, ut the bame time, and despite
these facts, a great and a noble charac
ter. If it be true, as Shakespeare says:
1 "Then U a destiny wLk'a stupe our cuds
' Rouge htw them how we wtU,"
01 would almost seem that even tu ,
his boyhood days Washington began
the formation of character that in after
tyears enabled him to win the proud;
!place lie will ever hold anions the great
jnen of the earth. Laying aide as iai- ;
probable and foolish many of the !
-.tones that have been told about him j
before he attained manhood's estate.
it is still clear that he was no ordinary
(boy. lie was scarcely in his thirtieth
(year before he had copied and compile i
Etu rules of conduct, and these lie
ptudied diligently and applied them
iduring his whole life both In social and
business relations with others.
A study of the man. as shown in his
.career from a surveyor to president of
the United States, discloses, we think-,
jthu leading traits of his character.
Let Us see what they were: In the
Hirst place, he was of a thoughtful, de
liberative nature, lie was possessed
tof tremendous will force, and this
faculty, turned as it was in his ease j
tinto the rigiit channels, enabled bin
to carry forward that work of self
training which he began in his early
youth and continued, so far 'as we
know, to the close of Ml long and
eventful career. He was .studious in
his habits, loved truth, honesty and
f.obriety; and then virtues, with the
constant use ot his retlective powers,
apon ga ve to him a Judgment ripened
liy thoughtful observation, far su
perior to that possessed by most men
of twice bis age und experience.
llis innate modesty, Hoo, is well
hnown. In about the only letter to
his wife that has beeu preserved lie us
pures her that be did not seek the high
plaee which tbe continental eongresn
had given him as commander In chief
of the American army, lie also tell i
her In the same epistle that he could
Rot shirk the grave responsibilities
thus thrust upon him and that he SOU id
not. Without bringing reproach und
disgrace to bit good name, decline the
proffered honor. At the lame time he
expresses his fears as to his ability to
handle the great interests intrusted to
him, but adds, with modest confidence,
that be will do tin- best he ,-an and
leiiae the rest to that l'rovidence who
bad all along gulden und protected him
0 every important undertaking.
This, then, Is enough for us to know,
that he did succeed in bis new and r. -Sponsible
position, and in the discharge
at rare intervals be lost control of his
temper UUd was OSpeclally irritable
w hen tortured by the pangs of hunger.
What of it?
lie was still the great general, the
patient, uncomplaining patriot, shar
ing the Sufferings und hardships of his
faithful soldiers, and never, for one in
stant, swerving in hi splendid devo
tion to his country und the great
cause of human liberty.
Yes, Washington was a hero, lie was
also a patriot and a statesman. And
let us rather be guilty, in his ease, of
u little hero worship than forget what
he did for bis country and humanity.
Better that American boys and girls
should be taught along these linen thuu
that thev should grow up with no love
for his memory in their hearts and with
little or no knowledge of the man and
bis noble achievements, r'or to study
Washington and his life means the in
culcation of the principles of honesty,
morality and patriotism, a vcucratiou
for liod and native land, together with
that sublime courage which makes men
willing to do and dare anything in tbe
course of justice und the right.
bo on this 2'Jd of February. IBM, let
us turn our hearts and thoughts
towards our own N ashitigtou, and in a
study of his virtues learn lessons that
will make us better and more useful
citizens; make us prouder of the price
less heritage for which the war of 'TB
was fought, and more determined that
the laud which Washington loved so
well shall ever be the best and freest
on earth. En. R, PRITOLkBD.

AN HISTORIC HOUSE.

0n of the historical places in the
city of Newburgh is Washington's
headquarters. It Is a very pretty little
building, overlooking the lludsou river.
Ou the west side is u low porch, which
is the entrance to the historical room
having seven doors und one w indow.
It originally was theliniug-room. It
contains one of the high old-fashioned
fireplaces Hanging to its black sides
ure a kettle once used by Lafayette
und a few cannon balls. Near by is an
almost life-size port rait of Oeii. Wash
ington, embroidered iu silk.
To the right is Washington's bed

and a tuble brought from Holland in
thu year 1698, also portrait), of (Jen.

are Mrs. Washington's spinet and

then pinning to the wall, where the
Sun shines through this hole, u piece

see the object photographed as I have
tried to sketch It.
I have been doing this daily for sev

The largest of the upper spot has
two or three white spots as yet un
touched by the heat, while around
them and all through thu iuterior and
outer edges of the spot can be seeu
what appear to be shudows of stream
ing flumes, as when eoal Is burning iu
a grate or stove.
The lower large spot Is Inky blnck,
with very little Indications of com
bustion on its edges. The long spot
has developod very prominently in the
past two months. Other smaller spots
jan be observed on this photograph ou
the wall. While intervening cloud
and mists are easily distinguished,
these spots remain tbe same, constant

In tbe clear space.
To photograph the sun in this way
and watch it consuming itself, it seems
li me. would be interesting to many
renders. But to me It is intensely
thrill teg. because of the proplieeios of
the liible. 1 saw and taught, nine or
ten years ago, that by 1001 iu April
the sun would become "block as sack
cloth of hair" (Uev. vl, 13), so that tho
angel could stand In it and summon
the fowls of the air and the beasts of
tho field to tbe "supper of the Great
God" (Ucv. six.. 17-1'J), and hence old
Sol would shine no more (Kev. xxi.,
S:i-25). Then this apparently foolish
Idea was laughed at, but now astron
omers are beginning to acknowledge
It as a llternl and seientlflu fact.
