Three Hundred Members of the Family
Residing in the United States.
At the dedication of the Washington
National Monument, invitations wore
sent to nearly three hundred member-
of the Washington family, by direct de­
scent or by collateral marriages. Tbir
teen gentlemen bearing tho name oi
\\ ashington sat together on tho floor oi
the House of Representatives on tho oc
easion of the dedicatory services, ami
bo-ides, in the gallery there were thirty
ladies who claimed kndrod w th the
family. Washington, of course, had no
direct descendants, but ho had two lia'f
brothers all I one-half sister, as well as
two full brothers and one full sister, all
of whom had families. His sister Bed}
married and left a large family. His
two brothers, Charles and Samuel, in t
married and settled in the valley < f \ ir-
ginia on large and most produc iv
farms. Charlestown, the county seat o
Jefferson County, W. Va., was name I
after Charles Wash ngton. II <brothci

at the age of forty-six. The descendants
of Samuel are very numerous.
of Charles, however, a-e comparatively
few. Tho Washington families are
most numerous in Virginia, Tennessee
and Kentucky, but a considerably num­
ber of them al o res do ffi Ohio, Minne­
sota, Pennsylvania, California and
Georgia, where they have usually set­
tled on the most productive farm lands.
As another characteristic it may be
stated that they are unambitious for
public position, but whenever they have
tilled positions of trust they have dis
charged their duties with fidelity. T ie
ability of Judge Bushrod Waslii ngt< n
a member of the Supreme Court, an
his able reports, will suggest themselves
to the minds of every one. Ge nge <'.
Washington, who represented a ¡Mary­
land d strict in Congress, was a man of
fair ability. It was h s son, Louis A.
Washington, who was captured by John
Brown, taken to Harper's Ferry, an I
shut up w th h ill when he was besieged
by the United States marines and taken.
A few other Washingtons have stud e I
law, and some medic ne. b'lt the greater
niimb'r of them take to mathematics,
surveying and farming. When they
have engaged in merchandising it lias
usually been in conn< ction with the
management of their estates. Both the
full brothers of Washington were de­
ceased before the General. The General
died possessed of large amounts of ex­
cellent land in Virginia, West Virginia,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, and devised these
lands to his nephews, who were, in con­
sequence, put in possession of consider­
able estates that made them independ nt,
influential and prosperous citizens in
the neighlHirhood where they lived.
They nearly all married young and left |
families. The Washingtons have al­
ways le n fond of the gun, and the
most noted hor emeu of the sections in
which they lived. Their personal ap­
pearance, as a class, has been charac­
terized by tall, large Isincd frames and
strong, well-cut features. In their
habits they are social and hospitable to
a degree of ext avagance. They have
all been free, good livers, and occasion­
ally some have ind ilged too freely ill
spirits, but cases of inebriates among
them are exceptions.— Hen Perley I

Molininmed>tn Sect with an Uncompro-
liiialng Hatred of Christianity.
The Senoussite sect, founded in North
Africa about tho m'ddlc of tho present
century by an Arab of the Boni Senous
tribe, from neighborhood of Tlemson, in
Algeria, s organ zed on the system of
secret soe'eties of Europe, with uncom­
promising hostility to Christian civiliza­
tion as its ma'nspring of action. From
its cradle in the Tripolitan Sahara it has
extend d its ramifications through all
North Africa, from the Somali coast to
the mouth of tho Senegal. M. Henri
Duveyrier, the eminent explorer of the
rahara. estimates the number of the
khouan, or brothers, at not less than a
million and a half, while that figure
may probably bo doubled. “Each of
these adepts," he says, “is not only ipso
facto a missionary, but is ready at tile
signal of his superior to transform him­
self into propagandist agent, a soldier,
a bravo or even a cowardly prisoner.”
To the agency of the sect lie
ascribes many resent risings in Algeria,
and numerous massacres of European
travelers, such as that of Mlle. Tinne's
party in tho Soudan in 1869
and of the Flatters Missies in the Al­
gerian Sahara in 1881. The Sultans of
Morocco nnd Wadai are bolieved to be
more or less subservient to its decrees,
while its inllueuce is felt as a disturbing

land of Yemen on the further shore of
the Red Sen. Musselmans, tainted with
Western ideas, are hold by it in a like
abhorrence witli the odious Nazarene,
and its watchword is that Turks and
Christians, being on a level, must be
annihilated by the same blow. The
founder of the society, dying in 1859,
transmitted his authority to his non.
Sidi Mohammed-ben-Ali-os-Senoussi, the
present Sheik, regards«! throughout
North Africa with a reverence almost
eclipsing that felt ftjr Mohammed him­
self. Like his Soudanese rival, heela ms
the titlc of Mahdi; hence a coalition of
tho two, despite tho identity of their
aims, was always, on personal grounds,
improbable. There was. indoed, a cer­
tain effervescence of enthusiasm for Mo­
hammed Ahmed among Senoussi’s fol­
lowers immediately on the fall of Kbar-
toun* but it rapidly subsided with the
subsequent wane in the fortunes of the
Warrior Prophet Of the Soudan. — Gen­

Believed in Fortifying.
A tramp entered a Washington saloon
the other day and blandly a-sked the bar­
“Can you tell me, sir, if Congress has
passed tho Fortification bill?”
“Well, ’sposen it has or hasn’t,what's
that got to do with you?”
"Oil. nothing much, only I feel a good
deal run down and would like to fortify
a little. I thought mebbe, in case Con­
gress had made an appropriation, you
might fortify me about *en cents worth
and charge it to the Government.
Your forty-rod will fortify as well as
any tiling e'se, so don't hand out the

Decrease In the Meinberwlifp of the Brlt>
I m I i Society of Friend«.
The statistical statement just issued
for the Society of Friends in England
shows that for the first time in many
years there has been a decrease in the
membership of the body in Great Brit­
ain. The number of members report­
ed in Great Britain is 15,390, which is
one less than in the preceding year.
The deaths in the past year numtiered
276, which is about 17.95 per thousand.
The decrease has taken place over the
larger number of the districts of the
country, but it is nearly counterbal­
anced by the increase in a few of the
others. The total membership is di­
vided into 7,332 male« nnd 8,Mi8 fe­
males; and Yorkshire. London and
Middlesex, Durham and Lancashire,
and Cheshire are the parts where the
largest number are located. In addi­
tion to the number of the members of
the body there are 5,712 adherents not
yet in the membership in Great Britain,
which is an increase of 83 on the num­
ber last year—the increase being most
apparent in the southern counties an<J
in Scotland. In all 317 regular meet­
ings of the body are held in Great BriU
