THE WlliniN'O PARIOH,
The Blue Parlor, in which the wed
ding ceremony will occur, wa deco
rated by Tiffany of New York, and
ronpened in the winter of 1S82-SU. A
robin's-cgg blue is used for walls, fur
nituro coverings and window-hang-lnga;
but it looks green by gaslight,
which is the light always lined on
State occasions. The ceiling ii sil

ver and crystal brackets 00 the walla
have gas burners, which, iu writ as
those In the handtome center chande

ceremonials. Although the Hunt Itootu
was us'd for Nellie Grant's wedding,
the lllne Parlor is the room in which
the most formal and ceremonious
h-cIb.1 events umially happen at the
White House. There the New Year
reception of the diplomatic corps and
all the other formal receptions held
by a Tfesidnut or tho lady of the
Whiio House occur, and there on pre
sentation el their letters acc.editing
them saflnvoys to this couutry the
foreign ministers or Chargrs d'Aflaires
are Hipt introduced by the Secretary
of Male to the Preaident. The wed

and of President Hayes' niece, Miss

The (ireen Parlor, next to it, Is said
to have been tho tcene of the pro

of Newport often told 'that it was in
that room that Mr. Brooks courted
her. 8he was then the Widow Ran

White House to vbit her ancle, Presi

AM APl'KAL TO DRKAMLAND.
Boperjtition has had not a little to
do with this wedding. It is a secret,
treasured among a few confidents who
have kept it cb stdy, that President
Cleveland s'ept. ths night before bis
inauguration, with a piece 01 we iauig
cke under bm pillow. This traditional
charm was tried at the Arlington Ho

prominent socic y lady long resident
in Washington. The Whin-Hoiiae is
always more jolly, she said to her in
mates, when tue 'President lias a wifa.
Why cot turn the badielor'a thoughts
in that direction? she mentally rea

In January, 1885, Mr. Pembroke
Jones, tbt daughter of Representative
Wharton Green of North Carolina,
who had been married a few weeks
previously, was asked for some of hr
wedding cake to be need as a "charm."
Good Democratic welding cake waa
wanted. Mrs Jones kindly gave the
cak. It was whits cake with white
icing, and it was safely put aside by
the provident lady until tho morning
of May 3, 1SV, when she banded it,
encloted in a small box, to Mr. Roes

to see thit the cake was put under

Humphreys), Mies Anna Van V.

(meaning Mirs Pruyn). The box aud
its contents were taken by Mr. Koes

was opnned iu bis presence to show
that it did not contain dynamite. It
was closed again and put under the
bachelor pillow of the President-elect.

On the evening of March 5th the

Col. Dan. Lock wood of Buffu'o, the
man who baa nominated Mr. Cleve

said: "Now, I don't want
any ollice for myself or friends
but I do want to know what were the
President's dreams on the night before

J hen abe told him the story of the

A few weeks after the intuirurAtion
the same lady asked Col. La 111 on t if
the President knew anything about
the box of wedding cake, and he
answersd, laughing good humoredly:
ud, yes; tie knows all about it,
but he isn't married yet."
A few of the President's closest
friends have joked about tho weddini?

night of March :i, 1SS5; but they will

THE I.ADY OK Tnt WHITS HOUSE.
As to a Pres dent's wife, she in f.

The wives of the last three mtrried

RULES Or COl'RT.
Miss Folsom, when she becomes
Mrs. Grover Cleveland, may follow
anyoflh'ss precedents or none of
them, as she and her hiuban 1 decide
to be best. She cannot expect a gay
time in si clety. however, for she is
not to nuue calls cr accept invitations
except from thoss in the same circle
from whom Preeident Cleveland has
aci.-pted dinner invitations, which
mans from the lnemli-rs of the f.h.
inet and their families only. Young

TDK MIIS. MONROR DOCTRINE.
It w.isMr. Monrje who, al'er her
hiubnd hd bn President nearly
two years. Mist established the prece
dent of not returning the visits of any
one. neiore mat a President s '
had returned calls in neison. The
following is from the diary of John
Quincy Adams, written in Pesember,
118. be then beinsr Secretary of Htate
in President Monroe's administration.
It ebows what a a-tir this enures on
Mrs. Monroe's part ma'le in Washing-
ion society. Adams had uoae to see
the President's wife to ta'k over with
her some much vexed oueetions of et
iq ne tie, which had also been formally
d scuB.sed at a Cabinet meeting by the
1 reeident and the beaos ol depart
men's. Said Mr. Adams:
Mr. Monro made some remarks
about ber own determination not
to go to the French Minister's boll
and aboat the multitude of queetiors
concerning first vi.iv, whicu are as
numerous as there are inili vidua s
Among thereat ahe told me that the
ladies of some Senators did not visit
her because she bad adopted the rule
of not returning visits, bat they
accepted invitations to ber house.
Another cxtiact also from Mr,
Adams' diary, of the same date as the
above, will serve t) illustrate what
vex'd questions of etiquettemavcome
up to perplex Miss Cleveland alter
ber brother s marriage. As the pre'
sidirg lady of the White House, she
has baeu conceded the same privileges
and also immuniiits that al resioeut s
wiftf bas had, but there cinnot be
two first ladies, and there is no rule
in the recognized code of e'iquet'e as

The following gives Mr. Adams'
accountof thediscutsion astowhethe
or not President and Mrs. Monroe
could go to a ball given by the French
Minister, and wuat a complication
there w as when the question was dis
cussed as to whether or not the Presi
dent's married daughter, Mrs. Hay,
could claim the same exemption from
social duties out ide the White House
conceded to her mother. Secretary
Adams wiote ilfcember iu, 181S:
"1 mentioned to the Pieiiilent Mr
Hyde de Neaville's extreme desire to
have him and Mrs. Monioe attend his

disposed to gratify him, if there bad
been an example since tbeexistencs
of the present constitution of a Piesi-

would consult the gentlemen of this
administration concerning it, for
wbich be appointed a meeting it 1
o'clock to-morrow. Mr. de Neuvilie
came iu bue uiucu Hi uigu auxiuiy
about It, and I appointed to see him
to-morrow at 3 o clock. On the 11th
the President told the Cabinet that
Maj. Jackeon said Pretident Washing

not to break through the eotablished
A orave cask.
"With regard to Mr. Monroe, it was
left to her own dicisione, but when
the President went from the Cabinet
mett'ngand cor salted her, she said
she did not think it proper for her to go
any place where it was not proper for
her husband to go. The President
said ho would request his daughter,
Mrs, Hay, to go. On retusning to the
cilice I sent for Mr. de Neuvilie and
gtve him the information. He was
apparently much mortitled at it, but
suppressed his feelings within bounds
of decency. The tiightiness of bis
head often amounts to absolute men
tal derangement. And be is always
a tunpting to minage political aflairj

in wbich he bas been endeavoring to
intrigue with Mrs. Hay. Hut among
the numberless questions of etiquette
aud prodencs here, whirb the want of
all citablisued rule bas occasioned,

the foreign ministers and Mra. Hay,
the const quence of which is that now
they do not via t."
Oa the 12th he received note from
Mrs. Hay requesting him to call upon
ber before seeing Mr. ds Neuvilie to
day; He went and found her with
Lt mo: her, Mrs. Monroe. Mrs. Hay
told luui to inform Mr. de Neuvilie
that she wou'd, tt the request of her
father (though much against her own
inclination) go to the ball next Mon
day, but upon conditions. First, that
it should leave her position witn the
ladies of the foreign ministers pre
cisely where- it was, that ahe would
afteawrrd neither visit them nor re
ceive visits from them, nor accept of
any invitations to their parties. Sec
ond, tbat no rank or station should be
ass gned to her at the ball no pre
tense of distinguishing ber as the
Pieeidenl's daughter; tbat at supper
she would find ber place somewhere
among the Commodores' wives, but
ebe must have no distinction shown
her. Third, that Mr. de Neuvilie
might write to his own government
whatever he pleased npon the subject,
but if an account of the ball was to be
published in the newspapers here her
Dame should not be mentioned as hav
ing b en present.
Mr. Adams noted the sime day hav
ing told De Neuvilie of Mra. Hay's
conditions upon which she would go
to his ba'l, and added, "He put up
with them mors coolly than I ex
pected." What nonsense all thiaeoems now

excited scramble for place and position in
this world, brings to many, tliestineringa
from an overworked brain and wornout
body. Are you among this number? Then
give a trial to Hrown'a Iron Hitters, and
strengthen the body and give the brain
rest. Weaska trial by thoughtful candid
men, to whom reliefand renewed strength
means ability to continue their vocations,
to provide for their families, to again enter
the field of labor from which they strive to
gain a competency. The source of a largo
number ol diseases is found in the linpun

but it is seldom thut the lawvers on either
side will allow him to do this. What they
consider has a legal hearing upon the case
ia nil they want to hear. Hut the man
who has sulli'ied, and been cured by
Hrown's Iron Hitters is prevented by no

manner, prompted by gratitude for his re

is a crime, lie who neglects indications
of disease until it becomes chronic is a
criminal. He not only injures himself but
docs a wrong to his family. By the use of
llrown a Iron Hitters a healthy action is
given to the torpid liver, the blood is sent
coursing through its various channel?, is
there relieved of its impurities and it mi
