PRESIDENT . ROOSEVELT IS ENJOYING
HIS VACATION AT OYSTER BAY
YSTEIt Bay U tho summer
capital of tho United States.
During tho heated term tha
affairs of 80,000,000 of poo
plo will bo managed In a lit
tlo fishing village on tho norm enoro
of Long Island. During that period
Washington censes to ho tho nation's
political hub. It Is only a hot, sleepy,
wide paved Southern town. Senators,
Congressmen and Ambassadors, who
have denllngB with our country's Chief
Magistrate, must wend their way to
Sagamore Hill, thick wooded and over
looking, for many miles, forest and
meadow, bay and headlands, nnd tho
jagged coast of Connecticut.
To Combine Business and Pleasure.
Here, In tho cool precincts of his
country hv.me, whenco he may look
over (he glorious waters of I.ong Isl
and Sound, dotted with the myriad
sail of cargo anil rnclng cralt. Presi
dent Roosevelt Intends combining bus
iness with pleasure. In his plctrtresquo
library typewriting machines havo at
rcadj been Installed, and from tho ad
joining room Is heard tho click of tho
Morso Instrument. Carpenters, paint
ers and plumbers havo been hustling
about for weeks burnlfhlng up tho na
tion's Btimmer White House for tho
accommodation of guests, and tho
whole neighborhood of Oyster Day has
been revivified. It Is expected that so
ciety will bcslcgo tho placo and mako
It what Oyster Boy has ncvor beforo
been, the abode of fad and fashion.
Not Altogether Pleasing.
This transforming of Sagamoro Hill
from a quiet, unpretentious summer
homo Into a national capital will un-1
(loubtedly be far from pleasing to Mr.'
Roosevelt, who has always spent tho
hot montliB In retirement with his fain-.
Ily unhampered by social resections'
, of dress or manners. He usually goes
about bareheaded, clad in white flan
nels, and joins frequently In plajlng'
with his bare-lcggcd, sunburned chil
dren. For with all Theodore Koose
elt's strenuous ambition, and varied
experiences, he Is supremely a "homo
man," and both ho and Mrs. Roosevelt,
to say nothing of tho children, enjoy
real contentnfent only when thoy are
living In the Ivy clad cottago at Oyster
President's Home Coming.
President Roosevelt got homo for
his vacation is a pelting storm of rain.
Just two minutes beforo his speclrl
train reached Oj ster Day 'a regulation
tropical storm swept that part of Long
Island. Deafening thunder, brilliant
and startling flashes of lightning from
a sombre sky and a tremendous down
fall of water greeted tho President.
Most of tho townspeople wero at the
station to shake hands with their fel
low citizen. Tho rain took tho starch
out of tho white frocks of tho young
women and tho curl from their hair,
but It couldn't tnko the warmth and
vigor out of the President's greeting to
those who had gathered to welcome
him home. ,
Mr. Ronsovelt was In n handshak
lng mood, as every ono from Harris-
burg. Pa , to Oyster Bay might testify.
He was the first man to jump off tho

When tho President reached Christ

awaiting Mrs. Roosevelt's arrival In
another carriage, It was evident that
ho strongly disapproved what might
have been termed the "pernicious ac
tivity" of a New York photographer.

Correspondents Given Views, i
The newspaper situation Is believed
to have been cleared by tho action of
the President In having a few plain
words with tho correspondents from
New York. Contrary to the custom
prevailing In Washington, of which,
quite exciitnbly, they wero not aware,
they persisted In quoting the Presi
dent regarding ever) thing from poli
tics to lawn tennis and back again.
This was probably because their pa
pers demanded It for tho numerous aft
crnoon editions In tho metropolis.
