A Terre llaulc bachelor stopped at
a friend's house the other night to
get him to accompany film to u com-
munity meeting. The friend was a
“much married” num and Ids spouse
did not wish him to go to the lecture.
So she told her hushund so.
They were in the next room and her
hushnnd was afraid the bachelor
might hear her and he did not desire
for the other man to think that lie
was so henpecked. So lit* raised a
warning hand at Ills wife. Hut she
continued in a voice louder than ever.
“I don't care If lie does hear. If there's
anything that makes tue tired It Is
some old bachelor going around clut-
tering up the earth.”
The bachelor was startled. What
he wants to krtow now Is whether or
not all women regard him in the same

The home of George Washington.is ■
tranquil place; It iM’longs ton frame of
mind almost vanished. Hut when the '
pilgrimage through tile house Is cwiu-
pleted and the eyes have begun to I
peer In vain for figures which are no I
more, hut w hose presence scorns so
vividly suggested, one steps oqt to
meet spring sunshine, and the foliage
that Is. Iii'lecd, ill keeping with tin*

hung buildings--nil of these echo with
Steps that vanish Just abend, around
eucii twist of wall.
Hut the Intimate work of Washing-
ton's heart Is in tlie surrounding
grounds. The noble view from (lie
portico, with its matchless sweep of
river uhd shore. Is tlie dazzling frame
for it. It begins tills work with tin*
stately circle of the howling green and
rods down lielow tlie rolling deer run,
where llie willows weep over Into the
It Is Wordsworth's “brotherhood of
venerable lives." As Washington
planted utid planned so, due u> a rev-
erent posterity, are the gardens and
lawns today. In simplicity and fra-
grance the first of shrines; In repose-
ful Influence the tonic of a nation.
There are today 200 Important trees
standing near the maiiwlon, many of
them planted during Washington's life
time; others were added, hut also in-
variably In sympathy with his original
plans for llie estate, so fur us these
were known. Washington himself
searched fur and wide for tlie trees
he wanted; he wrote his friends in va-
rious parts of America and abroad.
Tints it was that the estate Is u spot
beloved of forester and horticulturist,
rihI the less sophisticated visitor gazes
up Into the spreading tr«*es, lets the
eye linger on green sward and shelv-
ing shores, and gives over Ills spiritual
burdens to the bosom of tlie Potomac.
Washington’s diary Informs us he
was active In Januafy of 1785, locat-
ing elm trees for tlie grounds. Tin*
ninjestlc American elm on llie west
lawn probably was one of the trees ob-
tained at that tipie. He was fond of
the American elm. and there are at
least ten of these trees near the man-
sion. some of them, however, of the
later planting. Of the original elms,
two flunk the walls, fringing tlie howl-
ing green, on the east side. They are
picturesquely placed between the of-
fice nnd the gardener s house, although
this pair may he more recent. A fine
elm atands on the east lawn.
Tlie bowling green, between tlie two
gardens. Is an attractive study. At
once attention Is attracted to tlie twin
beech trees planted by Washington In
the corners of llie narrow end near
the mansion. Their height is accentu-
ated hy their tall, straight trunks, and
they form Impressive focusing col-
umns for the ojiening sweep of lawn
stretching between the two gardens.
On the west side the next tree Is an
ash. planted by Washington, and across
from them two coffee bean trees, the
three forming an Impressive group.
Of four notable honey locusts, one
standing between the kitchen garden
and the serpentine walk Is credited to
Washington. This Is a fast-growing
and short lived tree, and others prob-
ably disappeared. He makes note in
his diary that on March 23, 17Xd. he
planted “between 17,000 and 18,000
seeds of tlie honey locust."
The seven buckeyes have a special
Interest, far. Instead of tlie normal
yellow flowers, these have red, pink
and flesh-colored flowers, colors not
found anywhere else. Moreover, the
records show Washington gathered the
seeds from which the trees were grown
near the mouth of Cheet river, in what
Is now West Virginia.
Washington’s diary also mentions
planting four horse chestnuts, but It
is considered doubtful If either of the
three big trees there now were among

Two curiosities may be noted. One

Many in-es mentioned hy Washing-
ton ns being plained hy him are *n«
longer to he found ificre; hut of what
he did plant a small forest remains, a
remarkable tribute to the p:rnstaktng
character of Ids attention to the es-
tate. It Is Ini cresting, and not with-
out •! touch of sublimity, to Itchiild
these splendid trees set forili by Ids
own hand, now easting shadows over
the lawns he trod, their life spanning
the history of the tuition.
The howling green and Its circle of
tn c» In-spoilk Intimacy. The east and
west lawns are inspirational. The very
shapes of the trees and their varied
shades form ever new vistas, in which
tranquillity Is the keynote.
Scarcely In tlit' world Is there a
shrine to equal tills; scarcely could
there he a finer, u more enduring mon-
ument, than these symbols of eternity,
these ever living trees, preaching their
everlasting lessons of birth, fruition,
decay and rebirth. It Is all so sim-
ple. so artlessly perfect. Not an orna-
ment Is there, not uii obelisk, not u
pile of bronze.
Velvet lawns, quiet shrubs, tow-
hanging trees. perfumed gardens and
the gentle hum of the summer air—
reposeful, purifying—nnd unwinding
Itself between the twin ranges of hills,
the I'otoinac and the everlasting enig-
ma of the wnters.
It is what It Is; the home of a gen-
tleman who loved not only the world,
hut the earth; in It lie planted his In-
heritance. We share It.
