any trio of ladies in simpler walks of

broader-minded, more sensible and more

If a President's wife fails to grasp the
situation seeking only to wine and dine

Harriet I-ane Johnson graced the Whit)

banlshlnfr the wine cup, the assiduous
attention of Mrs Harrison to D. A. R.

known to ninety millions of Americans,
nnd the dignity surrounding all affairs
with which she and her President were

The present dav Is seething with new

Edward P. Boxwell, of Ifolslngton,
Kans , who was so certain of the election
of Bryan sixteen .years ago that he de
clared he would no. cut off his hair until
a Democratic' President took possession
of the Whlto House, asserted last night
that he has decided to let his locks
grow evcrr after Gov. Wilson Is sworn
In next Tuesday.
Boxwell arrived In Washington several
days ago and la stopping- with his soiii
Kdward S. Boxwell, who has an apart
ment In tho Bryn Mawr. The elder
Boxwell was so fatigued by his trip from
Kansas that he did not leave the apart
ment until yesterday, when he took a
short Jaunt about tho city, viewing the
sights and renewing acquaintances.
Boxwell called on Representative
Neeley. who Is frdm his district In Kan
sas. Boxwell Is personally acquainted
with most of the prominent Democrats
and Is known throughout the nation be
cause of his unique- method of showing
his belief In Br) an. 8lxteen years and
five months ago Boxwell bet that Bran
would be elected
He agreed not to cut off his hair until
a Democrat held the Presidential chair.
If Bonn had been elected. Boxwell
would have won SLO00 But Bryan was
not elected and Boxwell's hair was unr
molested. It has attained a length of
forty-two Inches nnd flows about his
shoulders Sometimes he fastens It on
top of his head with hairpins.
Again he tucks It down the back of his
nick under his coat. As he wears a wide
sombrero, tho length of his hair Is ef
fectively concealed. Boxwell came to
Washington to witness the inauguration
of the first Democratic President In six
teen )ears, and also to get a hair cut.
Since his arrival the Brjanlte has de
termined to let his hair grow.
Boxwell has received letters from
more than 500 barbers who want tho
honor of clipping his locks He also
received hundreds of requests rrom
curio collectors who want curls when
lie has his hair cut In addition to
such letters. Boxwell has been the re
cipient of hundreds of letters from all
sections of the country anent divers
subjects, chiefly hair and Brjanlsm.
Boxwell Is sixty-three years old. and
