President Taft's best wishes start the
National Press Club upon that part of
time's road called 1911 a. D. He had an
informal New Year reception at the
club's rooms. Fifteenth and P streets
northwest, yesterday afternoon, and
wished not ' only the members of the
club, but through them the people of
the United States, "as much happiness
as can come to all of us In this coun
The President was accompanied to the
club by Capt. Archibald XV. Butt, his
military aide, and his brother, Charles
P. Tatt, of Cincinnati, who were also
guests of the club.
The President spoke after being Intro
duced by the president of the club, Ar
ile made laughter by making a pun.
He had said that clubs were good things
and how men naturally flocked to them.
Then he said that some men were more
clubbable than others, and that he had
never seen a party more clubbable than
uie members or the l'ress uiud.
President Taft congratulated the
member upon their permanent organi
zation, and expressed the hope that they
i would soon be able to build an individ
ual club house. He advised that the
wives of the members be permitted "to
come in and run up bills."
"It brings home to one the necessity
for a little moderation In that part of the
club that is expensive," the President
paid, "and It introduces into the family
a belief that life is a partnership, after
all." He therefore recommended plans
for bringing into the club the ladles
that should govern the Press Club
members' lives. v
Of the members of the press Mr. Taft
said that some of them were leaders,
men of conscience: others not greatly
burdened with it. The profession Is like
all other professions some of Its mem
bers were men to be proud ot, some
not. He emphasized the fact that It was
Impossible to characterize the Journal
istic profession differently from others.
The President concluded with an, ex
pression of good wishes. Afterward he
shook hands and chatted with members
of the club.

Mary Boland to Star Next
Season, Is Frohman's
It is not very often that a play, the
title of which Is the name of one of the
characters of the piece. Is accepted by a
popular star unless he or shj. as the
case may be, has that role.
But this is the case In "Smith." the
new Somerset Maugham's comedy, in
which John Drew opens an engagement
at the National Theater tomorrow, for
"Smith" Is not a man at all, but an
English maid, -played with a delicate
humor and charm by Mary Boland, Mr.
Drew's leading lady. Whose work here
last season with the same actor in "In
constant George" was greatly enjoyed
by the audiences which gathered pri
marily to see the popular Drew.
Miss Boland Is one of the two princi
pals in the "Smith" company, the other,
of course, being the star himself, who
takes the role of an Englishman re
cently returned from Rhodesia modern
English dramatists seem to have a
penchant for Rhodesia; they are either

them home from there who has learned

family is to be kept together. He is, I

upon his return to England, that the
same idea does not prevail there, and,
together with Smith, thf maid, he con
spires to change the idea of his bister's
family, with whom he Is staying.
The play itself Is said to be a some
what bitter arraignment of social follies,
but, with Maugham's characteristic
cleverness, his preaching Is so coated
witii epigrams, witticisms, and amusing
situations that the audience Is scarcely
aware that It Is being taught a lesson
at the same time that It e being

it will mean that he will have to find

somewhat used to that he has a new

Chicago Opens New House
With Crane in Ade
CHICAGO, Jan. 1. While throngs
tried tq gain entrance to the crowded
cafes nnd hotels last night, and thous
ands of people paraded the downtown
streets, shouting and generally celebrat
ing the advent of the infant year, a
mob nearly stormed the tntrance to the
new Blackstone Theater, thrown open
to the public for the first time, where
George Ade's new comedy, "L S. Mln
Ister Bedloe," with William H. Crane
in the title role, was produced
Crane is a favorite here, and the
theater going portion of ."hlcago's pop
ulation Is fond of Ade's work so the
combination ought to be a happy one,
in this city at any rate.
But the new theater attracted as much
attention as did the play and the actor.
Built by Chicago capitalists at a cost
of nearly half a million dollars, the
Blackstone represents the lust word in
modern theater building. There is not
a post in the auditorium, and the seats
have foten made particularly wide and
loomy. The seating capacitv is a little
more than 1,209 The chief decorative
feature of the theater Is the imported
t.'.pestry drop curtain, which Is said to
have cost J13.000. The -theater itself 1.3
Tiecoratod in ivory and old gold, and
me ooxes and seats are up'iolbtered in
deep, rich green.
H hllc tlie consensus of opinion seemed
to be that the theater was the hand
somest In this city, the critics were not
to kind to "I. S. Minlster'Bedloe." The
reviews this morning are almost unani
mous in their statement that It Is not.

Bookbinders Give Dance.
The New Year eve dance and enter
tainment given by Local No. 4. Inter

then the hall was cleared for dancing,
which continued until midnight.
Reducing the Waisf
Line in Both Sexes
Men and women with heavv, pendu
lous abdomens who w ish to redrce them
quickly and safely are usually advised
to go In for certain tiresome twisting
and bending exercises that, as a matter
of fact, they should carefully avoid as
being dangerous, rather than beneficial.
A far better plan Is to use the fol
lowing three simple household remedies
which can be obtained of anv druculst
at small cost, viz: oz. Marmola, ij oz.
Fluid Extract Cascara Aromatic, and
3V4 ozs. Peppermint Water. These aro
mixed together at home and taken a
teaspoonful after meals and at bedtime.
These three make a mixture that is
not only perfectly harmless, but actual
ly quite beneficial to the system, regu
lating the digestion, purifying tho blood,
and clearing the complexion of pimples
and blotches. Its chief and surprising
benefit Is In the rapid, natural manner
in which it reduces the fat person to
the normal, beautiful lines of a fine
physique, it having been known to
cause the reabsorptlon of as much as a
pound of fat a day. Moreover, it does
it symmetrically, so that no wrinkles or
flabby skin are left behind. Strange to
say, neither dieting nor exercise are ad
vised when this simple home recipe is
being used, for It will produce results
independently of either, and so the pa
tient is instructed to eat whatever he or
she fancies, and la also permitted to
take things easy.

Could Save Government
Millions, Says Mrs. Ha.r-'
"Women vould rnn the Government
for Just half what is now required by
men to run it."
This is the declaration of Mrs. Har-
rletto M. Josephine-Wood, lawyer and
ardent suffragist, who has carefully
thought out this subject for tho pur
pose of delivering an address at Al
bany on January 11 before the annual
convention of the Allied Forces of
Civic and Moral Betterment, which
has a membership of 100,000.
"Woman is tho greater economist,"
said Mrs. Wood. "Authoritative fig
ures do not bear out the silly articles
written from time to time to show
that woman's extravagance Is ruining
homes, husbands, and society. Ex
travagance Is not the habit of women
of this country. It Is local, and the
women who squander exorbitant sums
on clothes. Jewels, and pleasures rep
resent an infinitesimal portion of New
York's vast population.
No Time to Waste.
"The latest Government statistics
show," said Mrs. Wood, "that in fifteen-sixteenths
of all families of the
United States, women do all the
housework. N which means baking,
making clothes for the family In many
instances, and the cooking, washing,
"When womeifarc so occupied with
their families, they vould hardly have
lime to be extravagant, even though
It were their nature, which It Is not.
"Now by reason of the fact that we
are by nature and training the house
keepers of the world, isn't It most
natural that we could run the Gov
ernment housekeeping and our mu
nicipal housekeeping much more
economically than men, and far bet
ter? Step to World Peace.
"If we had universal suffrage, uni
versal peace would follow. No woman
would vote to send her husband, sons,
and brothers to be killed In warfare
This in Itself would be a saving to
our country of untold millions.
"If a man Is set to the task of
housekeeping he makes a fine muddle
of It. How then, should we expect him
to keep the city clean?
"The filthy condition of New York
streets, with its vast expenditure by
the city for tills work. Is a disgrace
to America's greatest city."
Plan Dog Show In April.
An Important meeting of the Wash
ington Kennel Club will be held about
the middle of the month, in order to
complete arrangements for the dog
show which Is planned for April.
The success of the show held in the

ply to the American Kennel Club for
permission to hold another show this

The trouble that led to the stabbing

was on him. Again and again he drove

The women screamed as the bodies of
the men threshed from one side of the

and a bucket of water upset, spreading
with the blood which was already flow

little kitchen they fought, and there
the Italian finally desisted and fled.
It was the woman over whom the
men quarreled who gave the alarm. It
