Komi- thoughtless newspaper, com
menting ou the Intercut which uttnehos
in the public mind to nil connected with
the pilvato life of the President of tho
United States, sneers nt the fact that
even the 'White House cook coiner In
for attention. This sneer conies from
luck of fcciiH'.
Why should the people of tlio United
States uol feel a deep intercut in the
character of the White House cook.
Where Is thero an Individual who, In
diiectly, lun greater lnlhicnce on the
destinies of the country. "We know
more than we did century ago. Wo.
know that the heart, Instead of being
Hie seat of sentiment, Is n coarse pump
ing machine; we know that the brain
is nn impression icccivlng affair; wo
know that the stomach Is whence or
ders arc telegraphed along the nerves.
Tlio man who has eaten a properly
i ooked dinner Is calm and wlso; he
tvJio has eaten an indigestible dinner is
captious nnd has not good judgment.
The Whllo House cook is o power.
With n good cook in tlio White House
we may expect as good an Administra
tion ns it It in tho power of the Pres
ident to give. With n bnd cook we may
have the President's usefulness greatly
Impaired. This is lcason.
All the flings nt the absurdity of men
tioning the White House cook iu tho
dispatches and In correspondence arc
nbsuid. The people of this country
should have regarding tho Whlto Houso
cook as great n solicitude as concerning
any other otUcial of the Administration.
Tho settlement of tho new Territory
of Oklahoma is ono of the curious
events of the time, nere Is a region
large enough for a respectable State oc
cupied In a day with n floating popula

nmvngiiciiltural occupations nro well

Tho work of taking pictures for tho
ltogues' Gallery Is ono of the most Import
ant features of tho business of tho Pollco
Department. In the rear room at Pollco
Headquarters, in a neat walnut case, aro
hundreds of plctmcs men, women, old
nnd joung, whlto nnd colored, all of them
belonging to what is known as tho criminal
class. Tho pictures aro all taken by a
photographer on Pennsylvania avenue, and
the work Is about tho most interesting of
any ho has to handle. Thcroisuo struggling
for good effects, no turning tho faco so as
to hide the inolo on tho right check, tho
pimple on tho chin or tho slight cast In tho
If thero Is any molo or plmplo present,
care is taken to hnvo It In tlio picture, as It'
l,a means of Identification, and theso pho
tographs nrc not souvenirs or works of art,
but matters of cold record. Many of tho
prisoners who undergo this pictorial ordeal
aro as prim aud particular about'how their
photographs aro going to look as If they
were going to present It tu their sweetheart?
Those who aro older and moro shrewd of
fenders dread tho experience, as ho realizes
that It is tho mark of Cain; that It puts him
on record turoughout thu United Stntcs as
a professional criminal.
In many cases these pictures aro taken
Immediately after arrest and beforo convic
tion, so that It Is not imposslblo that Injus
tice has been done. Somo of tho pictures
In tho gallory present faces distorted by tho
most extravagant grimaces in order to pre
vent recognition as far as possible. Others
have their hats flow n over their eyes, coat
collars turned up, and tho faco covered as
far as possible. These pictures aro not
taken till after n struggle. Tho prisoner
has fought llciccly, and finally had to bo
held In his chair whllo tho camera was
leveled at him. Frequently tho pictures
show tho hands of tho people who held tho
subject, firmly grasping his coat collar or
In somo cases clasped around his forehead
so as to pull his head back and bring his
faco Into view.
In tho majority of cases, however, tho
prisoner submits gracefully, and does every
thing In his power to aid In getting a good
likeness. Tho women arc either tho most
solicitous about getting a, good picturo or
tho most avcrso to having a picture taken
nt nil. They either spend considerable tlmo
In preliminary preparation or else they fight
like tigers. Ono of th fiercest struggles
cyergono through In this branrh of tho
business w as w Ith a confidence woman, who
resitted until she was forcod to stop from
sheer lack of strength.
Ho was fairly well dressed as to hat and
coat, but his trousois were bad and his
i-liocs had no heels. In tho language of tho
street, a man is respcctablo so Ions n' bo
has heels on his shoes; so our friend was
baldly respectable. Ho went Into a saloon
ou Seventh street and told tho bar-keeper
ho would like a beer, bock beer, If the bar
keeper had it. Then tho stranger said
softly, as If to himself, but loud enough for
the bar-keeper to hcai:
Once thero was a Dutchman named Huglo,
Who was learning to play on a bugle,
Hut ho got a high note
Crossways In his throat,
And ho only can play Yankco Doodlo.
Tho jinglo mado tho bar-keeper laugh,
and ho put less foam on tho beer than was
his wont. As ho reached for tho beer, and
looked at It thirstily, tho stranger said:
Here's another ono:
A young lady that lived In Toledo,
btood right over a big torpedo,
Tho bar-keeper had his cars cocked for
another jingle, and tho sudden termination
mado him laugh moio than a jingle would.
And tho young man with no heels on his
shoes was a square up tho street boforo tho
bar-keeper remembered that ho had not
paid for his beer.

Mr. Flower told the other day of tho man
who had evolved tlio schemo of a pipe line
from Orango county to New "York city.
This plpo lino was to bo similar to that
used by tho Standard Oil Company in bring
ing its petroleum from tho Pennsylvania
wells to tho Atlantic seaboard. This Is a
"continuous lino of lion pipes sunk beneath
the ground, and tho petroleum Is pumped
through them into tho tanks at Buyonne,
Wechawkcn, and Long Island City. Mr.
I lower's Msltor said that his plpo lino was
to convey tho milk of Orango county from
that blooming and beautiful country right
Into tho streets of Now York. Ho thought It
the most feasible schemo on earth, and ho
was annoyed to think that Mr. Flower's
business acumen couldn't grasp it.
Not long ago Mr. Sago was asked to lend
his name and a few hundred thousand dol
lars as a starter to organtzo a maple sugar
trust. This schemo also included a com
bination for tho control of making syrup.
Tho company was to buy up all tho trees,
especially In Vermont, and the tall, lank
Vermonter who had the audacity to broach
this subject to Mr. Sage said that they
would fairly make things hum. Mr. Gould
was once bcslgcd -by a chap from Western
Pennsylvania, who had conceived tho ex

This soap is used by minors and others who
grub in the earth. At that time there were
only about 800 cases of this soap In the
country, and Mr. Oould's visitor wanted
him to buy it all up and mako him hi J agent
for the salo of it. Mr. Gould was, of course,
to watch tho Importations aud control them
also. Collls P. Huntington frequently

who wanted him to buy tho Great Salt Lako

Oue result of thelabors of physiologists
has been the clearing of the mental vision,
and tho grrdual comprehension' of tha
great, pervasive and potcutlal fact of
"heredity,'1 "The sins of tho fathers shall
be visited npon the children," said Mooes,
moro than D,C00 years 030. Probably ho
comprehended In but a vciy small moasuro
the significance of his own utterance. Not
only do paronts transmit to children their
mental peculiarities, their moral tenden
cies, tho features of tho faco, tho etoip of
the shoulders, and the tuck of the gait,
but they pass on to thrm their blood, their
bra'u, their glnnds, their very soul and hfc.
Wo do not mean to say that heredity Is a
tyrant from which thero Is no cscpe, and

In Atlanta, Ga., on Wednesday, an old
man, Chance Carter, died. This old darky
was known to several generations. Ho
claimed to bo 107 years old, and there was
nobody left to tell whether he was mistaken
or not. Judge Calhoun know him halt a
century ago, nnd he says that Uncle Chaneo
was nn old man when he was a boy. Tho
old man was the slave of Mr. 'William and
Mis. Bhoda Carter, and beforo tho old m.in
died, Chaneo was 'tho general director of

just beforo tho breaking out of tho war,
and she left Ch.'nco as a solo proprietor of
thirteen acres of land, with thu understand

livan and Lester. Tho brido and groom
leave for New Yoik this ovcnlng.
Tlmccicmony wns tho prettiest of tho
pnst Easter weddings. Tho altar was al
most hidden with banks of Easter lilies,
their whlto blossoms showlngpurcly against
tho dark grecu of the leaves, and tho church
was crowded. Half society was thero and
everybody know ovcrybody else. It seemed
as It every card Issued had been used, A
llttlo after 1 o'clock tho bridal party ar
rived. As It moved slowly up tha 1101 th
olslo tho sunlight that streamed mellowly
In through tho stained windows lighted as
pretty a sreno as was ever In tho
old church. The choir, lu their white robos,
camo first, chanting a sweet, tuneful, simple
march. Then the ushers and groom, beside
his brother, followed by tho four brides
maids that wcro so pretty In their fresh
tasteful toilets that the Ifowers they woro
and curried seemed a part ot them. Each
woro a different color; white, pink, pals
green and palo blue, though the colors wcro
no paiciy suomicu mai ino group inauc a
most handsome picture.
Kncli carried n bounuct of different
flowers ono roses, another lilies, tho third
violets and tho fourth orchids. Their hats
wiro each ornamented with tho samo sort
of flowers that Its wearer carried, aud as
tho bouquet ot so typically spring loveli
ness raoved up tho nlslo between tho rows
of pews full of admiring women, with a
scant sprinkling of men, the exclamations
of admiration sounded ilka the rustlo ot a
spring breeze through unw-lcafcd trees.
After tho qunrtct of bridesmaids camo tho
mold ot honor, all In white, with bouquets
of palc-plnk rosebuds, und then solirrly,
looking almost funny lu her droll expres
sion of Bcdntcness, came little Miss Muriel
She carried tho bride's bouquet ot lilies-of-tho-volloy
that was half us big as her tiny
self, and her blue eyes looked so prctcrnat
urally solemn that anyjvheroelso everybody
would havo laughed. Then tho venerablo
Justlco MacArthur, his whlfc-halred head
rising above the younger ones of most of
tho ushers, walked down tho aisle with the
bride on his arm. Her whlto satin dress was
cut V-shaped nt the throat nnd neck nnd
the material of the dress was nlmost hidden
under the cascades of lace. Her flojsy
black hair was covered with a crown of
oiango blo'soms, from which tho whlto
tulla veil floated nwuy llko n wreath of
mist. Tho rich simplicity of tho costumo
set off her rich dark beauty mo3t effectively
nnd tlio prettiest part of tho pretty wedding
picturo was that formed by tho white-haired
Justice with tha haudsomo brldo on his
arm as thoy walked down tho aisle. Rev.
Dr.. Leonard pionounccd tlio words that
meant so much to two people, and nothing

An Interesting Conversation Isctncoii
I'ntir Millinglng IMIturs,
There wcro four managing editors sitting
together. They were grizzled and gray.
Tho hard lines which many nlghtsjof labor
draw under ono's ryes and upon ono's faco
weio unon allot them. Not a man of tho
Jot but had been In a thousand stows over a
liiousauu lorgoiicn sensations, inoy unu
fouTht the telegraph company for posses
sion of tho wires: they had scut reporters
helter-skelter on the track of rumors; they
had struggled against each othor lu the
despcrato conflict for news, which means a
great deal for ono day and nothing whatever
for tho day after. And thoy wcro discussing
tho work whoso record Is writ lu water.
"I got n curious letter to-flay," said one
of them. "It Is from a lady who says she
Is mv wife. I havo mado Inquiries about
her, 'and I think that, perhaps, she tells tho
truth. 1 havo a dim recollection ot having
been married once, but I am not positive
The work of the ofllco absorbs iny time so
much that my memory has no room tor theso
Indefinite details. The lady says that sho
was married to mo a quarter of a century
ago, that I have a baby who Is about to ecle
brato his Ulst birthday, and that sho would
llko to havo mo present on tho occasion. I
dlsllko to visit strangers, but, if tho facts
nto as sho states, I supposo I will havo to go.
I havo written her that It sho will prove her
Identity I will bo on hand. But," ho added,
"1 hnto to bo bothered with theso domcstla
affairs all tho tlmo."
The second managing editor looked up
sjmpatblzlngly: "1 can feel for you, iny
dear boy," lio said. "I haven't been mar
ried as long as you havo, so I cau recollect
tho ccremo'uy. I havo not entirely lost my
Interest In domestic matters. It was only
tho other evening that I sent a reporter to
find out where f lived, but tho after conse
quences wcro discouraging. When I got
homo my wife did not rccogulre ino, and,
as the hour was normal It being three In
tho morning sho went on tha conventional
Idea, took mo for a burglar and cang up a
putrol wagon. I spent the night hi Jail,
nnd I havo never experimented on going
homo since. One can uot'bo too careful.
Tho third managing editor smiled a proud
sralla aud called for somo beer. Evidently
he had an important communication to
make. "I am about to say something, ho
said, "that will oxclto your Incredulity, I
do not even ask you to bcllovoit, for I
kuow bow astonishing It will seem. But I
was homo two months ago and my wlfo
actually recognized mo."
Thero wasa general look of disgust nil
"That's a fake," said one ot tho party.
"No, It Isn't, said tho speaker, earnestly.
"It's actually so. Sho recognized mo by
"But where did sho hear your voice f"
"Whv. I've talked with her over the tolc-
phono several times," replied tho aggrieved
"Well, thank heaven," said tho fourth
mnnnglng editor, "l'vo never becu mairlcd
"Novcr been married f" cried tho others
In a chorus, "why, yos you have. Wo got
terds to your wedding."
"Gentlemen," said the fourth managing
editor with dignity, "If you aro trying to
test wilh me you havo chosen a poor nub
Jet t. I havo never been married."
"But you havo," said ono of tho party,
because I scooped you on tho account of
Tho professional allusion brought tho
fourth managing editor back to his senses.
"By Jove," he said, "I do recollect it now
from tho clrcumstanco you mention. I
wonder If my wlfo Is still nllvo."
"Alter all." said th'e s:cond manactnz
editor, "a newspaper man should not
"What difference does It mako to hlmt"
asked tho first managing editor.
"None, leally," said the thrco in a chorus.
Aud then they oidcrcd another beer.
There was sllcnco for awhile, broken only
by the vain effort of ono of tho party to get
a waiter. Theu tho fourth managing editor
showed signs of embarrassment.
"What Is It?" tho other thrco asked.
"I wan going to mako a propoiltlou," ho
raid, "that may strlko you a llttlo oddly,
but I think thero is something in It."
"In the newspaper wayf" the other thrco
"Of course. Wo'vo got nothing to do with
a i' j thing clso. News is a llttlo dull, and
I've got a tcbemo for a sensation some
(bine that will paralyze people."
"What Is h?" they demanded lu united
"I.tt's call on our wives?" Omaha Re
publican. A Convict Kscapcs Through n Sewer.
John Burke, a convict In tho Maryland
penitentiary, escaped yestorday afternoon
and has not yet been recaptured. Burke
and Andrew L. Hand, both ot New York,
wcro arrested on October S, 18B0, In tho
Merchants' National Bank of Baltimore,
for attcmntlncr tho drop came on a manu
facturer named Gcorgo W. Parks. They
wcro each sentenced for ten years and six
months. A sentry patrolled tho wall and
bad a clear view of oill tho men iu tho prison
yard save when he turned to resumo his
march. A sower, tbreo feet In diameter,
had an outlet In the upper end of tho yard
and extended VCO yards under tho jail and
let Into Jones' Falls. Burke took advan
tage of the sentry's back being turned and
escaped through the sewer, two of the bars
having been cut apparently by an accom
plice, as they wcro sawn from tho other
side. Ho was obliged to crawl through the
slime, and a deputy took forty-five
minutes to teach tho outlet.
A Disappointed Lover.

Imprisoned at Mount St'.rJlfarys Academy
