The Finest Incident ol the President's Visit.
[Tho Atlanta (Oa.) New?, October 27.]
Somehow we all seem to have
missed the finest and moat repre
sentative incident of the President's
The suene was at Roswell and the
dramatis persona? were the President
of the United States and Mrs. W. E.
Baker, a rare fine danie of the old
regime in Dixie.
Roswell, of course, like all the
rest, went wild over the President's
visit. Everything that had two legs
and everything that had four legs in
the pretty towu turned out to see
him. Every house was emptied of
its habitant, all dignity laid aside,
and with eager eyes and clapping
hands, the little world of Hoswell
went out to see the illustrious ruler
of 80,000,000 people.
Not so Dame Baker, of Barring
Sbo sat still and let the President
come to ber !
There was no show of wealth at
Barrington Hall. There was no
gilded trappings, no liveried servants
and no perfumed mist from alabaster
lamps falling on rich axminsters as
the feet fell softly there. There was
no stately guard nor pompous cere
monial in the old mansion, touched
with tho ruin that made it picturesque
and sacred in suggestion.
Bul there was within a woman of
the old regime-a grande dame as
gentle as she was proud. She was
the relic of the finest and the gent
lest civilization that the world has
ever known-born of cavaliers and
the inheritor of a homage as knightly
as chivalry could yield. Sbo was a
woman of the old South, and she
had been born to understand that the
majesty which unbonnetted kings
was her's in the birthright of her
sex-for in that golden South of
1 chivalry every maiden was a princess
and every matron received the hom
age of a queen.
And HO gentle, unruffled and se
: rene, with placid expectation on her
chiseled face and tranquil welcome
in her clear blue eyes-while all the
! world went out to see the President
'-Dame Baker, of the old South,
i waited calmly at Barrington Hall
for tho President of the United
States to come to her.
And when he came she called him
And with all his brave and gener
ous heart Theodore Roosevelt hon
j orcd ber for tho majestic dear con
' ceit. Frank himself and bold, scorn
ing shams and toadies, a democrat
in public tiber, and with one-half bis
blood pulsing the world's best chiv
alry-this rough ri lo* of the plains,
this manly man, this aristocrat of
two sections, this Yankee-Southern
cavalier, this foremost figure of the
world-bent low before the stately
dame of Roswell and loved her for
her gentle pride and dignity.
To have done less would have been
lose majest? !
Ah, dear old South of memories
and dreams-of stately customs and
of gallant creeds ! the strenuous
years and the shining dollars are
covering many of its glories with the
material dross. But we thank God
for the grand old matrons, who shine
with silver radiance out of the mists
of tho by-gone, making for the youth
of to-day a renaissance of our chiv
Ami we offer in even more cordial
grasp tho right band of section to
tho illustrious citizen who, in his
hour of almost imperial triumph,
waives all ceremonial claim and pays
frank and gallant homage to this
dear old daine of Dixie.

G. 1?. Burnhans, of Carlisle Center,

wrote you stating that I had been en
tirely cured of asevere kidney trouble
by taking less than two bottles of Foley's
Kidney Curo. It entirely stopped the
brick dust sediment, and pain and syn p
toms of kidney disease disappeared. 1 am
glad to say that I have never had a re
turn of any of those symptoms during
ibo four years that have elapsed and I
am evidently cured to stay cured, and
heartily recommend Foley's Kidney Curs
to any one sufforing from kidney or blad

Physicians are Liable tor Liquor Tax.
Washington, October 31.-A large
number of letters aro being received by
tho commissioner of internal revenue on
tho subject of alcoholic compounds, such
as patent medicines, essences, etc.,
against which rulings have recently boon
mado and Commissioner Yerkes is an
swering them as rapidly as possible.
In a letter to a correspondent tho com
missioner says that there is no special
tax under tho internal revenue laws for
the sale of applo cider, hut cautions them
that tho only safo course for dealers to
pursue is to sell tho beverage only under
its true name and not attempt to ]>ass it
off under somo other name. It is stated
by chemists that tin; pine apple cider of
tho United States contains moro alcohol
in another letter tho commissioner
writes that druggists may use alcoholic
liquors in compounding physicians' pre- j (
BOriptions and in making tinctures for
salo in good faith for medicine' uso only,
without subjecting themselves ) special
tax as liquor dealers.
Ho decides that a physician cannot
presort be whiskey to a patient, when not
compounded with medicine, without in
volving himself in special tax liability,
oven though ho prescribes and sol's it for
uso as medicine only.
