The following appeared in the
Shamrock Texan recently with
only the name of the town dif-
ferent . . .
Most everyone believes that
George Washington was born in
Virginia. He wasn't. He was born
in Texas near Claude. . . . There
was only one tree in all of Arm-
strong County. It was a mcsquite
tree and was located in Father
Washington's back yard.
Well, one day Father Washing-
ton had to hitch up his team and
go to town for supplies. He need-
ed some harness oil to soften up
some horse collars for the spring
plowing, a keg of sauerkraut, a
sack of flour, some corn ground
for cornbread, a new grate and a
damper for the stove, a plug of
chewing tobacco, and some half
soles for little George's shoes.
Mother Washington needed
some dippin' snuff, some bees
wax for quilting quilts, a new
thimble, some elastic for garters,
a new hat pin, and some white,-
nin' powder for going to church.
She also wanted some asafedita
for quietening little George's
Father Washington drove into
Claude and put up at the wagon
yard for the night. He got up
early the next morning and don?
his shopping and was soon on his
way home. While he was gone
little George got out his Bowie
knife and whacked down the tree
—the only one in the whole of
Armstrong County . . .
It is said that the country a-
round Claude is so flat that you
can see days away. Father Wash-
ington was about four miles a-
way when he looked up and saw
that the tree had been whacked
down. He whooped up his team
to a lather and before the wagon
stopped rolling, jumped out and
asked, "Who cut down that tree?"
Little George stepped up and
said, "I did it Father. I cannot
tell a lie." Father Washington
grabbed him, took him to the
house, locked all the doors and
pulled down the shades and said,
"Son, if you can't tell a lie we
can't live in Texas." So they
moved to Virginia.
It's Up to You
Life itself can't give you joy.
Unless you really will it;
Life Just gives you time and
It's up to you to fill it. . .
If we don't watch out failure
will catch up with us while we
sit down *to wait for success.
Even* those who are afraid of
what the future holds for them,
usually want to stick around and
see more of it.
If we do only the things that
have to be done we will get by,
but if we do all that should be
done we will have a better chance
of becoming a success in life.
A good way to succeed with
any promotion, ... Is to be
sure we have our own self in
motion . . .
Behind every successful man is
a good woman . . . and the
chances are good that she will
It seems such a shame when
just at the time our country
needt to b? on its knees in prayer
th? courts decided to outlaw it.
