An Old Colored Woman's Remi
niscence of Washington.
Aunty Mary Smith was not one of i
Washington's numerous Doay serv
ants, but she says she saw and
waited on him, and that this is glory
enough for one person. Her mem
ory is of the past of so long ago that
Aunt Mary was visited yesterday by
a reporter, who found her in the
third storv front room of the tenement
J house, 308 Lombard Street, which is
a rickety oia sneu, wuu uur. umi
narrow stairways, and from the con
fusion of tongues on every hand
each room appeared to be inhabited
by a family of a different nationality.
Aunt Mary was alone when the re
porter entered by an invitation from
a rather strong voice within. The
old woman sat leaning over the stove,
in which a low fire was burning, and
she motioned her visitor to a seat.
TIIE RECORD LOST.
"Did I ever see George Washing
ton? Laws, yes. See'd him, and
waited on him, too. How old am I ?"
And she went on echoing the ques
tions and givinsrthe answers prompt
ly. "I don't know how old I is,
lioney. My grandson took de Bible
wid him to "Canada many and many's
a year ago and 1'se forgot when I
was born. I was a slave, but I didn't
have anv right to be, for I am an In
jun." "And she ran her fingers
through her thick, kinky hair, which
was as white as fleece. "I b'long to
General White. My mother saved
ole missus' life by hiding her from
the Injuns when there was an upris
ing at their home at Charleston, S. C.
De white folks left dare and cum to
Cold Spring in New Jersey, near
New Brunswick. I was bora dare
and dat is whar' I use to see General
GOOD-LOOKIXO LITTLE MGGAB.
"He visited de house often and
whenever he would cum he'd say:
'Whar's my good-looking little nig
gar?' And I'd cum in and curtesy
and say : 'Here I is, marsah, ' when
he would say: 'You know what I
wants, don't you?' 'Yes, sir,' I'd
say, 'brandy and water.' Den I'd
curtesy again. De Genel didn't
thinks dat anybody could fix him
his brandy and water like me," and
the old woman tossed her aced head
in a proud way, and her dull eyes
gleamed with renewed light. Then
she grew reflective and after a few
moments she said with some emo eme emo
teon: COLORED TROOPS IN THE REVOLUTION.
"I will never forget de fight be
tween de 'Merican and de English
soldiers in their red coats. Genel
Washington was at olo marsah's
house de day befo' an' he said dat de
only way he could win de battle
which was coming was wid niggar
troops. He had a whole lot of nig
gars from Virgin', an' he told dem
if dey would fight like brave men he
would give dem dare freedom after
de battle. Dey asked him to give
dem a plenty ob whisky wid gunpow
der in it. Dat was to make dem
brave. De whisky and de powder
was give to dem and dey fit like wild
cats on Trenton bridge and de En
glish was whipped. Oh my, Oh my,
you just oughter seed how de niggars
was piled up all in a heap dead.
HER MEMORY OF LAFAYETTE.
"After de war," she said, "I was
sold to John Connelly, who lived in
dis city, on Chestnut Street, above
Tenth, on de berry spot whar a big
carpet store am at now. Jirs. Mor
ris, who was a sister of Bishop White,
lived next door and dat was whar
Genel Lafayette used to cum. De
Widow Morris give a big party for de
Genel once and all de niggars in de
city marched up and down de streets
singing and dancing, and when dey
got to de house whar de Genel was
he cum out on de steps and said dat
hit made him awful proud to see
how much de culled folks thought
ob him. My ole massah, Connelly,
was mighty mad, 'kase he war not
invited to de 'ception, and he made
his slaves stan' mighty straight for a
DID NOT RELOXQ TO THE QUALITY.
"You see, he did not belong to de
quality folks, for he had been de
prison-keeper ob de city. I remem
ber dat he was gwine to whip me
oncet Kase 1 sassea missus, an' my
ole man he hearn about it an cum to
de house to see me. I tell yer he
was mad. He an' marsah got to
quarlin' an' dey cum mighty near
nghtin'. One was on one side ob de
fence an' de udder on do udder side,
an' dey got to swarin' at each udder
an' dey cussed until de fence fell flat
on de ground. Neder olo marsah
nor my ole man ever swore after dat."
The old woman was asked how she
got along. She said: "My rent has
been paid twenty years by an old
lady who is now too old to leave her
house, but she remembers me every
month. Her name is Mrs. Vaux,
and she is the mother of Mr. Richard
Vaux. No, honey, I don't know my
age, but I is very old."
" That vehicle looks a little drunk,"
said a friend to Spicer as a wobbling
carriage passed them on Washington
"Good reason," said Seth, "the
seats are all full and the axle is a
little Bprune." Boston Commercial
It was on a corner.
On a public, icy corner.
As I approached it from one di
rection an angel approached it from
I mean an arfgel in female clothing
$14 hat seal-skin sacque $8boots
and such a face and form !
As we were about to pass she fell.
There was no bag-of-sand business
about it, but she simply uttered a
little shriek a very little one tossed
up her right arm, and then grace
fully settled down in a heap, with
one' foot and ankle peeping out from
under her dress.
I'll be hanged ! I'll be hanged if it
wasn't the most graceful thing in the
books the prettiest, sweetest, dain
tiest fall ever seen in public !
Quicker'n chain-lightning I made
up my mind to marry her. I had
fully determined never to marry a
woman who slipped down like a bow
legged quadruped and made herself
an object of ridicule to the public.
So did I.
My love never grew cold. She
took occasion to fall again this
time off a step ladder in the back
yard as we trained a climbing rose.
Gracious ! but how beautiful . She
didn't go down with a swoosh and
a kerplunk, but descended like a
bird slowly, gracefully, quietly,
After that I hastened the marriage
day. I had long ago determined
never to marry one of those women
who kick the step-ladder through the
back fence as thev take a tumble.
We were spliced. My happi
ness kicked the beam at 2,000
Inside of a week she threw a clock
at me. Next day she went into a
mad fit and kicked two panels out
of a door, and several panels out of
me. She tried to saw me in two
with a case-knife. She sought to ex
plode a can of tomatoes under my
chin as I slept. She stole my watch
and pawned it she plundered my
wallet she placed a torpedo in my
path, and she fled with a man who
was selling patent stove blacking
three packages for twenty-five cents,
warranted not to raise any dust or
spot the carpet.
Let 'em fall!
I stand on very icy corners and
wait and grin and anticipate.
I cachinnate and chuckle. I am
heartless. Let 'em fall gracefully or
otherwise. Let 'em descend like
feathers, or with a bump which
shakes the earth. Let 'em scramble
on all fours, mad and chagrined, or
let em remain in graceful position
until some soft-hearted fool rushes
up to extend a hand.

placable, unrelenting. Free Press.
