The Congressional Keception.
The third of the state levees, pop-
ulary known as >'The Congressional
Kecepiion", took place on last
Thursday evening and proved the
iniiHt enjoyable, as well as the small-
e-t, ol this years receptions at the
Whit;* House, although sixteen bun
dred persons were present. I lie use
of door cards in connection w ith the
invitations prevented the attendance
of a large percentage of uninvited
guests, as was usual during former
administrations, and materially ad
did to the comfort and enjoyment
of those present.
I he great clock of tlia main cor-
ridor had not ceastd striking nine,
when, with military precision, the
President and Mrs. Roosevelt, atten-
ded by Commander Cowles and
General Bingham, and followed by
Miss Roosevelt and those ladies who
had been envited to receive, appeared
on the landing of the West Stair-
case and the buglers of the Marine
band sounded the President's call
as the party descended to the blue
room where there they took up their
places in what is termed the receiv-
ing line. A few moments were
spent in greeting those especially
envited to a place "behind the line"
before the more formal reception
On the east side of the White
House is a large room, doubtless
considered spacious enough tor every
conceivable emergency but its desi-
gners, but in these days of grtat
functions its capacity is often over-
taxed. This is known as ' 'the East
in contact with him without feeling
the charm which enujates from his
sturdy manliness," and heexpiessed
the sentiment wtiiJi, in one form or
another, one hears, on every side.
According to th • ethics of the
newspaper office ev ry woman who
possesses weal'-o oi'social position
should be described •.* beautiful but
candor compels the admission that
neither Mrs. Roosevelt nor her
daughter possess beauty. Mrs.
Roosevelt has a refined, attractive
face and charming manners which
evidently are prompted by goodness
of heart, an instance of which occur-
red Thursday evening. At thesf
receptions Mrs. Roosevelt does not
shake hands but Speaker Henderson
evidently forgot I hat fact and put
out his hand. With quick percep-
tion, and evidently desiring to save
the old gentleman from embaress-
meut, Mrs. Roosevelt instantly
extended her's and Mr. Henderson
wan the only guest so favored.
Mrs. Roosevelt has a pleasing
face, displaying to character in her
features to be pretty. She has an
abundance of brown hair and a slight,
girlish figure, and dresses as a
young girl rather than as the usual
rile scene 111 the East room was
brilliant and picturesque, but as
much has been written of the inter-
mingling of army an<L nnval uni-
forms and the cost*un of the
diplomats who do not appear iu
ordinary evening clothes, together
with fair and beautifully gowned
women, that an attempt at descrip-
tion seems trite. Of course the

The South has long claimed to be
the seat of American chivalry, but
Manchester, Vt., is entitled to be
known as the centre ol politeness.
The most disastrous fire of th ■ past
generation in that town was discov-
ered by a young lady, who, seeing
the Board of Trade in session in the
doomed block, announced: "Gentle-
men, excuse me for interrupting,
but the entire north side of this
bui ding is on fire."
The International exposition, has,
on account of its frequency and the
haphazard way 111 which it is pro-
jected and carried through, become
a decadent institution that has lost
almost all ot its real value. The
result of all the scheme
exhibitions is that they are not
representative of what they should
be, and that their awards have lost
value as expressing merit, when
nearly every exhibitor can buy all
the meals lie wants. This is rather
a serious charge, Lut it is made by
au eminent professor of eeouo-.nics,
which is the stair-case, usually re-
fered to as "the private stair-case".

landing is the entrance to the long
conservatory in which Lieutenant
Sentelinann aud his famous Marine
band are usually stationed, the high
arched roof serving to mellow the
tones of the heavier brass instruments
and the rich green foliage presenting
an excellent back ground for the
brilliant scarlet uniforms of the
band. Opening off of the long
corridor and back of it are the red,
blue and green rooms, so called from
the prevailing colors of the decora-
tions. It is in the center room,

Just inside the door into the Red
room stood Lieutenant Gilman,
requesting the guests to walk single
lile and as they entered the Blue
front Major McCanley asked the
name of each person, announcing
it to ihe President and party. The
most striking feature of this year's
reception is the cordinal hand shake
of Mr. Roosevelt whose manner
expresses even better than words, a
genuine and cordul welcome, a man-
for such i "er which he preserves throughout
the evening irrespective of the hour
or the number of guests. A member
of Congress who was met just as he

Only two of the great countries of
the world have been exemt from the
periods of depression that followed
the great commercial boom of a few
years ago. These are the United
States and France, the latter,
because she did not participate in
the industrial struggle that has
brought disaster tc England and
Germany. The United States has
more than held her own on account
of the prosperous and peaceful cou-
ditions within her borders.
Some small papers in Oklahoma
are having spasms over the idea of
becoming a state with the Indian
territory, a land where everybody
wears red blankets and feathers in
their heads. Such shameful igno-
rance upon the part of those editors
is not excusable. A better dressed
or better behaved people, as a rule,
can t be found iu any country than
inhabit that dreadful Indian Terri-
tory. Red ink and gasoline are not
drank any more freely in that coun-
try than right at home. Visit the
laud and get jour prejudices re-
to liiiu politically, but I never cunio 1,1<jved.— Southwest World.
General Hallington Booth of the
Volunteers of America tells a story
of a prayer meeting held io New-
York on the east side during there
cent mayoralty campaign- In the
midst of a prayer, he relates, one
pious brother said: "Oh, Lord, we
pray Thee that the Democratic party
may hang together ill the coming
election " "Amen, answer prayer,
Lord," put in a Republican who was
near. "But I do not mean it as the
Republican brother means it, Lord.
I pray that we may hang together
in concord and accord," continued
the Democrat. "Amen, Lord,"
again said the Republican, "any
eoid so long as they hang."
1 he young ladies of Fairview
must not place any faith (?) iu the
word of a certain popular yjung
clerk of this town, though but some
twenty odd summers can be to his
credit, has ambitious to become a
high society man. The other day
he bribed a young lady with candy
and apples for a kiss and then failed
to perforin his part of the contract.
This young man has just about as
much courage as a youth of this
vicinity, who, lacking the courage
necessary to accost the girl of his
heart and make known bis desires,
sent word by another young man
that he desired her companionship
