Ex-Prpsidpnt Kvpr Partook
of a Mint Julep.
Maikjcbttk, Mich.. May 27.- Col. Theo
dore Uoosevelt, the first witness In his
$10,000 libel suit against Kdltor George
A. Newett of the Ishpemlng Iron (Ire,
to-day in explaining wnat liquors ne nas
partaken of since he became a grown
man and whnt drinks he doesn't care for.
One of the two ex-PrcsldctU of th
Fnlted States was placed In the extraor
dinary position of defending his leni
perateness over a long period of years.
The Colonel's teeth snapped emphat
ically when he leaned toward the Jury
of farmers nnd worklngmen nnd told
them that never since he became of age
has he been under the Intluenceof liquor
even In the smallest degree. With great
particularity he described Just the kind
of drinks he had taken and the kind
thnt he had avoided. A crowded "Liirt
room hung upon his words and mar
velled at his memory for details.
He said that he had never drunk a
cocktail or a highball In his life. He in
sisted that he never drank brandy or
whiskey except when chilled after ex
posure or under the advice of physicians,
because he didn't like the taste of either.
In Milwaukee ten yearR ago he took 1
sip of beer because some one hnd toid
i him that it was the stuff that mnde MI
wnukee famous; but he didn't fancy It
nnd promptly wanned the tnate out of
his mouth with a swallow of white wine.
liuinipiiitnr Oner n Month.
He gave the Jury a list of the wines
that he has partaken of on occasion
white wines, Madeira, champagne and,
very occasionally, n glass of sherry. It
was his custom at home, he testified, to
drink a glass or two of "white wine with
Poland water. At public dinners he
sometimes took a glass of champagne,
maybe two glasses, but he was sure he
never tasted champagne more than
once a month.
Mint Juleps were a rare pleasure, tald
ihi, Colonel, but he couldn't remember

Most of his mint Julep experience

grounds there was a fine bed of mint,
The Colonel was fairly certain that he
hadn't had more than two Juleps since
leaving the Presidency. One of these
occasions was at the Country Club in
, St. Louis and the other, he thought,
was at Little Rock, where his enter-
talners passed him n loving cup con

davs In New York, his experiences ns a
, rnnchmnn nnd ns a soldier, his terms ns
; ('resident, his hunting trip in Africa,
and he said as frankly as jxjsslble thnt
he hnd never been a total abstainer.
All through the ex-President's story of
his life occurred little anecdotes of
where or how or why he took n drink
of something thnt wnsn't distasteful,
He lnld stress on the fact thnt on his
cnmpnlgn trips he never drnnk nnythlne

It was his habit to take a goblet or per

spoonful of brandy to the goblet. H"
found that the milk and brandy rested
his throat nnd made him sleep well.
One of the most Interesting parts of
his testimony wns his description of h!s
habits while President. He never
touched brandy or whiskey while he
was In the White House. Once, after
taking a 100 mile ride with Dr. Rlxcy,
he took n sip of whiskey because he was
suffering from acute Indigestion, but he
disliked the taste and stopped nt the
sip, substituting tea, Outside of n few
