"The February-born will find Sincerity and peace of mind, Freedom form passion and from care, If they the amethyst will wear." - We celebrate the birth of Lincoln and Washington. Why not remember those in our own home with suitable birthday gifts? - KENNEDY'S Artistic Jewelry, Optical Work Cut Grass, Art China, Etc. La Crosse, Kansas. February 1912 calendar Monticello, Home of Jefferson "I am savage enough to prefer the woods, the wilds, and the independence of Monticello, to all the brilliant pleasures of this gay capital (Paris)." - Jefferson to Baron Geisnur. Jefferson owned a large estate in the broken and picturesque Piedmont Region of Virginia. On the summit of Monticello, one of the boldest mountains in this domain, he built from his own plans the picturesque and stately mansion in Italian style which he occupied as a home up to the time of his death. After Jefferson died the estate was purchased by Commodore Uriah P. Levy, U. S. N., and is still in the possession of his family. It is preserved in all its original simplicity and grandeur.
