Something About Presidents.
There is no subject in which the
average American takes a deeper inter
est than that of tho personality of the
presidents. Tho chief magistrate is
the symbol of national unity. Ho Is
tho representative of every man, wom
an and child. Ho has one or more
points of contact with all citizens. A
majority of them have seen him or talc
en him by the hand, practically all
have read of him, have looked on his
picture and take pride in his achieve
ments In his personality he epitomizes
the national life. He is placed before
the world as the embodiment of Amer
ican ideals and aspirations.
Despite the fact that wo are a peace
loving people, a majority of oUr pres
idents have been soldiers. All of these
have come from the army, notwith
standing our. long list of naval heroes.
We have never allowed a sailor to ru
the ship of state.
Of the twenty-five, only twenty have
.been elected by the people, the other
-five being vice presidents who suc
ceeded to the ofllce.
When the present term is completed
tho period will have extended over
116 years, a little over four and a half
yoars to each man.
New York and Virginia tie, each
having furnished five of the number.
Of these, one from Virginia, Tyler,
and three from Now York, Fillmore,
Arthur and Roosevelt, were vice pres
idents who became presidents through
the death of their chiefs. Next to
these states come Ohio with four, Ten
nessee with three, one of them, John
son, a vice president; Illinois two,
Massachusetts' two and New Hamp
shire, Pennsylvania, Louisiana and
Indiana one each.
Nine of the number came from
south Of Mason and Dixon's line and
sixteen from the north. All of tho
southerners held ofllce before the civil
war except Johnson. None of our
chief executives have come from west,
of the Mississippi river.
In politics, two were federalists, five
were whigs, if John Quincy Adams can
be so classed; nine were democrats
and nine were republicans.
Only seven held office eight years
Washington, Jefferspn, Madisbh, Mon
roe, Jackson, Grant aha Cleveland.
Five died or were Hilifco. in office. tw6
of tiiese, Lincoln and Mckinley; tJelng
on their socdnd teririB.
The presidents have been long dri
neither whiskers nor names. Only
eight of them indulged in hirsute con
cealment. Of these, Lincoln went
smooth-faced nearly all of his life,

The lihnles bf the presidents fur
nish' a rather Interesting study. The
ntitnerdus' Biriith, Jones and Brown
families have ndt been represented at
all. Nearly all the names have been
rather unusual. Ten of them ended
in "n." Most of them are rather
courtly and euphonious In sound, all
but four, Polk, Piofcej Grant and
Hayes, having two syllables or. more.
Only seven of the presidents had,, a
middle initial, the second Adams, the
first Harrison, Polk, Grant, Hayes,
Garfield and Arthur. All the rest were
burdened with but one Christian name.
Of the entire number James leads with
five, John follows with three, Andrew
and William have two each, and
George, Thomas, Martin, Zachary, Mil

Rutherford, Chester, Grover, Benja

Mb.. Webster Dayis' Book
THIS work is the outcome of a visit to the Transvaal, made by Mr. .
Webster Davis while he was Assistant Secretary of tho Interior,
under Mr. McKinley's first administratiort, and as the result of
which he"broke his relations with the Republican party and af
filiated himself with the opposition. The author vehemently ar
raigns the British government for the Transvaal war. Whether
the reader agrees with the author or not, he will be interested in
his presentation of the Boer side of the case. Milton said that
truth could not suffer so long as she was left free to combat error.
John Bull's Crime,
Assaults on Republics
"Strike, but hear," la a familiar saying. No one knows his own side
of the case until he also knows the other side.
For all these reasons, no matter what opinion the' reader may
have formed of tho South African war, he will bo the gainer from
a reading of this book. ,
The illustrations aro worth alone more than the price of the
work. They were all taken on the' spot, either by Mr. Davis or
by some of his friends, and they certainly form a unique collection
of South African pictures. They are in all styles, from "grave to
gay, from lively to severe," and they have been faithfully and
exquisitely reproduced in half-tone. Cloth, largo octavo (6x9), 400
pages altogether, printed on coated paper, beautifully illustrated
by over eighty full-page half-tones, attractively bound. Two dol
lars; carriage prepaid.
