THE PRESIDENT'S MAIL-BAGS.
I was in the White House the
other day nml saw n stack of some
hundreds of communications ad
dressed to the President of the United
States. They were all neatly jacke
ted, and briefed and corded up,
awaiting the President's return. I
nsked Secretary Prudcn wlmt the
tenor of such letters was.
"O, everything," was the reply.
"They arc on every conceivable sub
ject of ft personal nature to the
writers. Many of them are direct
appeals for money. Now, you
would never suppose a stranger in
Texas, Nebraska or New-Hampshire,
or somewhere else, would writo'to
the President for a few dollars with
the expectation of getting it, would
I answered that I did not feel
quite sure about that, since women
and men who were total strangers to
me frequently came into my oflicc
and asked me to get them a pass to
Philadelphia or New York, or a
. Government clerkship, or a situation
on n leading newspaper.
"Well, it's a. fact. There are
letters here asking Mr. Arthur to
send various sums by return mail or
express, from fifty cents up to $500.
One young lady writes for money to
buy a piano, by which, she says, she
will be able to earn her own living.
Another, a man, wants to borrow
$100 for six months, for which he
will give his note and ten per cent
I glanced at the top jacket and
saw the brief, "Pecuniar Assis
tance." "Yes, that's one," said the genial
Secretary. "There are a good many
more In the stack. Some want
oillcial sinecures, making no pro
fession of service. They merely
want to be put on the rolls some
where for a few month, so that the
salary will help them along. They
are usually not particular, however,
whether the Government or the
President furnishes the money."
Which,' of course, he docs?"
"Oh, yes, the same as you provide
the railroad passes and clerkships.
Why, his $50,000 a year wouldn't
be enough to pay these demands
upon him personally. He can't even
read their letters. ' It's a very funny
world this," And so it is.
A SOFT ANSWER.
They were strolling together in the
moonlight, by the water's edge at
the foot of the garden. Taking ad
vantage of their fancied seclusion,
the young man gently encircled the
maiden's waist with his arm, and,
drawing Iter to him, for the first time
in the course of their love partook of
that refreshment which is fabled to
surpass in sweetness the most ex
quisite raspberry jam. The next
morning, after breakfast, her father
took her aside and coldly remarked:
"Mary, you were walking with Wal
ter bwt evening." "Yes, papa."
"What was lie doing while you stood
no close together at the foot of the
walk?" The maiden blushed deeply,
but, quickly recovering Iter presence
of mind, answered: "Papa, yon have
a right to know : he was only height
toning the effect of the landscape,"
