A there have in the course of our comparatively very Brief history been Gay White houses and quiet White a houses. To the latter class belong the administrations a Adf William my Martha Washington. R Kinley and Theodore Roosevelt and of some earlier executives. Of the former Dolly Madison a is generally a looked upon As the most notable or ample with the period of Grover Cleveland a occupancy of the throne As a.

Certainly of recent years the Cleveland regime must stand out As the most socially important in any consideration of the activities of the ladles of the white1 mrs Mckinley practically an invalid had not a the strength necessary to the prosecution of a it vigorous social Campaign. Mrs. Roosevelt has hot the inclination. She has been Ever a retiring woman Content with her family and her Homo life caring nothing at All for the pomp and circumstance that go with High. Office. It whatever gaiety of the sort Washington expects from the a executive family has been in the main due to mrs. Nicholas Longworth formerly Alice Roosevelt that Young woman enjoyed a National popularity which few ladies of the White House have Ever exceeded. A a an everyday heroine. Lucretia Rudolph Garfield was essentially a homebody. She had been a school teacher in Ohio before she and Jamos a. Garfield wore married. She took no Highfalutin notions to Washington when she went there As the first lady in the land. She was a Farmer s daughter and her ways were Plain. The Hon. A. M. Pratt of Bayou. O.

Their Fortune was their youth health. Hearts intellects Hope and glad am i to say a mrs. Garfield before her a Elevation a was very often compelled to do much of Hor own housework. Ten years before she went. Into the White House she wrote her husband from their a form Home a letter which shows Ftp lines of her character and which in part is As follows a i gift glad to Tell that out of All the toll and disappointments of the sum mor just have risen up to a Victory that Ellen of thought since you have been away has won for my spirit a Triumph. I read something like thib the other Day there is no healthy thought without labor and thought a lakes the labourer perhaps this is the Way i have been Able to climb up higher. It came to me when i wan making bread. I said to myself hero i am compelled by an inevitable necessity to make our bread this summer. Why riot a pleasant occupation and make it so by trying to see what perfect bread i can make a Quot it seemed like an inspiration and the whole of life grew brighter. The very Sunshine seemed flowing Down through my spirit into the White loaves and now i relieve my table is furnished with better bread than Ever before and this truth old As creation seems just now to have become wholly mine that i need not be the shrinking slave of toil but its regal mistress making whatever i 5j0 yield me its Best fruits. You have been King of your work so Long that maybe you laugh at me for having lived so Long without my Crown but l am too glad to have found it at Hll to be entirely discontented even by your merriment Quot. Mary Lincoln a ambitions. Mary. Todd Lincoln wife of the other american president to meet death by assassination held from Early youth the ambition to marry a a Man who should Rule the nation. She picked out As her Choice Abraham Lincoln and this at a time when her selection seemed to have Little of re comm Ida Tori in it. She refused the offer of marriage of Stephen a. Douglas and wedded the Man she was sure was to go to Washington As the chief of America. She realized her ambition arid went to the capital holding her first reception a court of politeness fashion and Charm. She Trade for her husband friends by the Hundred and was never happier than when presiding at the parlor Cabinet. That was her history for awhile the mainspring in the scheme of happiness then came the Darker Side of things wars and rumours of wars the bayonets of the British gleaming in the Washington Suri Shinfen and ainu Alcan officials in danger of sudden death. Just How the volatile lady bore herself under these changed conditions is Well shown in a letter she wrote to her sister at mount Vernona tuesday August 23, 1814. A dear sister my husband left me yesterday morning to join Gen Winder. He inquired. Anxiously whether i had courage or firmness to remain in the president s House until his return on the Morrow or succeeding Day. And on my Assurance that i had no fear but for him and the Success of our army he left me beseeching me to take car of myself arid of the Cabinet papers Public and private. I have since received two dispatches from him written with Pencil the last is alarming because he desires that i. Should be ready at a moments warning to enter my Carriage and leave the City that the enemy seemed stronger than had been reported and that it might happen a they would reach the City with intention to destroy it. A i am accordingly ready i have pressed As Many Cabinet papers into trunks As to fill one Carriage our private property must by sacrificed As it is impossible to secure wagons for its transportation. I am determined not to go myself until. I see or. Madison Safe and he can accompany me As i hear of much hostility towards him. Disaffection stalks around us. My friends arid acquaintances Are All gone even col. C., with his Hundred men who were stationed As a. Guard in this enclosure. French John a faithful Domestic with his usual activity and Resolution oilers to Spike the Cannon at the Gate and Lay a train of powder which would blow up the British should they enter the House. To the last proposition i positively object without being Able however to make him understand Why All advantages in War May not be Rachel Jackson s sad history a very. Sad history was that of Rachel wife of president Andrew Jackson. Early in life she bad contracted a marriage which had resulted unfortunately and on a divorce being granted or As was thought at the time granted he married Andrew Jackson. The repetition of the report that this marriage took place before a divorce had positively separated the woman from her first husband Robards so worked upon mrs. Jackson As to aggravate a heart affection which had Given her much trouble. The fact that a second ceremony positively United Jackson arid. The daughter of col. John Donelson was ignored in the gossip attendant upon the lives of the parties and in the Campaign for the presidency made by March 9, 1861. This is How an old timer recalls that occasion a mrs. Lincoln stood a Tew paces from her husband assisted by her Sisters mrs. Edwards and mrs. Baker together with two of her nieces and was attired in a Rich Pink moire antique Pearl ornaments and Flowers in her hair and hands. She 1b a pleasant looking elegantly appearing lady of perhaps 40, somewhat inclined to Stout Ness but withal Fine looking and was the proudest Day of mrs. Lincoln s life. Laura c., Holloway in speaking of the influence of mrs. Lincoln of official America Iet inclined to the belief that much of unfortunate effect was due to mrs. Lincoln Slack of tact. Plucky Dolly Madison. Of a happier tone was the White House experience of Dorothy Payne Madl Sori wife of the president of that name. A her family came from Virginia and she herself despite the fact of her North Carolina birth always took Pride in referring to herself As a daughter of the old Dominion. When her family removed to Philadelphia arid joined the Quaker sect mistress Dorothy was brought up Iff that severe doctrine. She married very Young John Todd a Philadelphia lawyer and was a widow at 22. Her second marriage to the then congressman a Madison took place less than a year after the death of mrs Todd mrs. Madison a disposition was of the sunniest. She proved an invaluable ally when her husband was elected president and moved to Washington. At that Early. Day of our history Washington was Little less than wilderness. Steamboats were just coming in railroads were unknown. Five Hundred mile to lab on horseback were frequently taken women. The times were rough. Mrs. Madl Soni the softening influences which were hers from birth made of the presidents Home Rachel Jackson. Jackson my enemies made. Much capital of the situation. Just ask Sho was preparing to leave for Washington to Rule As mistress of the executive mansion mrs. Jackson overheard a gathering of women in a room adjoining hers in a hotel discussing her with a Freedom and malice that resulted in her Complete prostration and subsequent death.

Hattie Williams gives secret of sue Cess in of unmaking. A the Way to get a laugh is to go on with a laugh. Good nature begets Good nature. There May be dyspeptic comedians but i know of so declares Hattie Williams Star of the Little Cherub company. A toil can catch some Flash with at to facial flies but you can to catch laughs with artificial smiles. You must really feel in the humor if you expect your audience to respond to you. Now you May say that one cannot always be in Good humor just because one wants to Amnise an audience but Pray. Why not Good humor comes with Good health and a Clear conscience and it it is your profession to engender Good humor Quot y6uv must be Good Humoured Why not cultivate Good digestion and Clear conscience. A a there is this advantage in laugh making with a Good Start you Are quite sure of a Good finish get your audience laughing and it will do the rest after you have raised the first real Broad smile you May if you want be As dyspeptic arid As sorely troubled in conscience As Uriu please for the first impressions decide the Fate of the performance.

Twenty five years ago when he a began his stage career he was bashful More bashful than he is now1, and he gave his. Name to the manager in such a Way that the manager caught it As Bernard.
