"Tbo best of tho lot," ho roplled; "ho's

a Cabinet olllcor has a great deal to tontpt
his vanity, tmt Mr. Garland knows merited

siovo to find It."
Tbo correspondent then cont!nuo3:
"Wcro Mr. Garland a society man ho would

physically ho is a handsomo nrau. IIo has
n clean-cut, closo shaven faco, that would
attract a truo woman or innocent child to
him trustingly by liibtlnct. I heard many
expressions of admiration for him by somo
very elegant looking ladies irr tho Supromo
Court-room tho other day, whllo tho object
of their admiration sat all unconscious of
tbclr words, which might turn his hoart If
not bis bead, and all tho uroro dangerous
that they woro unconscious of tbo fact that '
ho was a Cabinet olllcerand a widower.
They pronounced tho justices 'horrid and
stupid' and turned their attention to tho
lawyers in tho ring, and supposod Mr. Gar
land ono of them you sco they woro
strangers. I told them who tho object of
tbclr great admiration was, and that ho
might provo a 'catch' for somebody. 'Oh,'
said a tall, bright-eyed girl, 'I'll set my cap
for him, but dear mo, how am I to pro
ceed?" "Muko a lato call at his house somo

chat with his dear old mothor, till hor boy

ho is deeply dovoled to tiro kind,honost

There aro no protcnslons of stylo or

dence. His young daughter, who is not
old enough to do tiro honors ol socioty yet,
being a school gitl, does sometimes assist
her grandmother In receiving tlio many
visitors who pay their respects Wednes
day afternoons, and it Is refreshing to bo
welcomed by thl3 aged, true, noblo woman
and Innocent girl after going tho rounds of
tho giddy whirl of socioty call-making. It
was a cold wintry day that I mado my first
call, after having paid my respects to tho
other ladies of tho now Cabinet, and it was
a pleasant experience to ontor a horuo-llko
