In one sense, tlie late occupant of the
White Blouse, was counected with more
clubs than any other man in W ashington,
iiaj. Moore excepted. During liis reign
there wcie about thirty around the Presi

they were policemen's clubs. KverybodyiB

the highest compliment the Autocrat can
pay to ainbaesador, prince or Freddent.
A good, hearty man like Mr. McKinley
must enjoy a roa6t quite as much as his
predecessor did a "stake." It, therefore,
is not surprising that lis should have smiled
upon the invitation of the Gridiron Club to
foregather with that genially satanic in
stitution at its next monthly symposium.
Doubtless he may attend without the
trepidation of ordinary mortals. Even the
persecuting Gridiron is kindly to the truly
great, and Presidential roasts are not apt
to be overdone.
I am afraid that this unbending and
gracioiisness to one club of "literary fel
lers" is not to be taken a.s evidence that
we shall be ahle to make the Executive

as a matter of principle it would be ap
propriate that he should associate with

some extnnsically. Really, there is much
that he could learn in that kind of com
pany. A man in his position naturally is
surrounded by satellites and flatterers. If
he could escape them occasionally and mix
with men -whose social equals he becomes
by force of official position, it would do
him good and give him views of life and
society that he never is likely to hear
about otherwise. The -whole atmosphere
of the Diplomacy and Department is red
olent of unaffected and decorous cul
ture, simple though polished good nature,
and its members to the last man wear
lialos of ingenuousness and blushing inno

The Impenetrability of your leally typ
ical club man, the result of careful study
and self-control after the best London
models, was singularly illustrated the
other night In New York. One of the
old-timers and a social luminary left his
club at the usual hour of closing the doors,
after calling a cab. Hardly had he sat
down in it before a terrific explosion
wrecked the vehicle, shivcied the windoWb
in fragments and waked up all the people
in the Windsor Hotel. A bottle filled
with some cxplo.Mve had been left or
placed in the cab, and the club man's en
trance set it off. Now the strange part
of the circumstance is that the gentleman
was not Injured in the least, although his
trousers were ripped and toin into shoe
strings, and the appendices of his evening
coat blown over the house. Several mem
bers, waiting for their conveyances,
chanced to be at hand and hastened lo
his assistance. Naturally they expected
to find him an unpleasant and disrupted
body. As a matter of fact, he was none
the worse for the experience.
In view of the emergency the club
rules weie violated and the doors reopened,
and it was found that the victim's throat
had all the function and capacity that ever
it did. The moral of the tale is so
palnable that I blush to add it. Every
one must see in it startling evidence that
one of your real old dyed-in-the-wool club
men, in respect of impenetrability, is too
tough to blow up with nitro-glycerine.
QUEENS WHO HELP
Boyalladiesasa rulethow a vastamount
of interest in helping the sick and unfor

tugal is the only queen who has gone so far
asstudj-ing medicine. Empress Frederick of
Germany and the queen of Gicecc are es
pecially noted for their interest in the un

Olga of Greece, and the great liusxiiUil in

an instance of Ids kindness in this respect
it is told that when a ward for crippled

pations to know the small incidents that
dignify the careers ofour temples of amuse
ment. The Lafayette Square Opera House is
oneof thcnewestofoui playhouses. Itwas
built in 18S5,and isnow in its second year
or life, yet there is attached to this house
n.orc than any other a tenemental value
which will distinguish it to long as it stands,
as an historical landmark. The Lafa
jetlc is built on the tite of the old Blaine
l.ouse, which was torn down two yeais
ago to make room for the new theater.
Tnc piopeity still belongs to the widow
of the eminent stateman, and is leased

The Blaine house was one of the mOBt
famous of the old Washington mansions.
It stood back Xiom the pavement at about
equal distance with Senator Cameion's
house, which is next, to the north, and its
north side was about on a line with the
north wall of the theater. One -who sits
at the middle and back of the orchestra
finds himself at. al.out the spot where the
state banquets and receptions weie given.
Tlie tier of mezzanine boxes and the piom
enade behind them is about on a level with
th room In -which James G. Blaiiie died.
The old house was built by Commodore
Bodgers in the thirties. Secretary of State
William S. Seward resided here. In one
of the rooms was shown dark stains on the
floor, and it was related that they were
made by the blood of Lincoln's premier,
when an attempt was made upon his life
at tlie same tine; as upon his chief's. Atone
time the house was a fashionable boarding
place, and its roor sheltered sucli distin
guished guests as Henry Clay, Andrew
Jackson and James K. Polk.
During the recent season of German opera
at the Lafayette, when young Walter Dam
rosch conducted, thebrilliantscene lecalled
another picture on the same spot, -when the
same person wasthe central figure. It was
that of a spring morning several yeais ago,
-when a group of the nation's distinguished
officials and social leaders were gathered
In the old, Blaine house to see WalterDam
rosch and Margaret Blaine plight their
troth in marriage.

Mr. .Albaugh opened the Grand Opera
House, on the corner t)C Pennsylvania ave

one significant piece of theatrical history
attached to it. Here Mary Anderson ap
peared on the -stage for the last time.
She gives a graphic account of this inci-
dent in her recentiy-punlislied memoirs.
It was Just twelve year$ ago this inau
guration week." "Miss Anderson was tired
and ill, but on As'h-Wednesday she did not
appear. On Thursday night, against her
doctor's advice 'and her manager's wishes,
she went on. 'Iiu-lplay was Shakespeare's
"The theatenwas crowded," says Miss
Anderson, in 'her "A Few Memoires."
"Perdita danced as gayly as ever, but
after the exertion fell fainting fiom ex
haustion and wag carried from the stage.
I was taken to my dressing-room, which,
in a few moments was filled with people
from the boxes- Itecovering consciousness
quickly, I begged them to clear the room.
Itealizing then that I should probably not
be able to act any more that season,
though there were many weeks yet un
finished, I resolved at any cost to complete
the night's work. Hurriedly putting on
some color, I passed the group of people
discussing the incident, and before the
doctor or my brother was aware of my
purpose, ordered the curtain to be rung up
and walked quickly onto clip stage. As I
did so I heard a loud hum, which I was
afterwards told was a great burst ot ap
plause. The pastoral scene came to an
end. There was only one more act to go
through. Donning the statue-like draperies
of Herinione, I mounted the pedestal. My
physician, formerly an officer in the
Army, said that he had never, even in
the midst of battle, felt so nervous, as
-when he saw the figure of Herinione sway
ing on her pedestal up that long flight of
stairs. Every moment there was an hour
of torture to me, for I felt myself growing
fainter and fainter. All my remaining
strength was put into that last effort. I

The first of the Washington theaters was
built on the spot now occupied by Kernan's
Lyceum Theater. Though the entrance to
this house is on Pennsylvania avenue, the
theater really stands on the corner of C and
Eleventh streets. On this corner -was
erected the first Washington theater, in
1S04. A stock company built it, and they
gave it no other name than "The Theater."
It lasted several years, but, with a destiny
to establish a Washington theatrical prece
dent, was at length burned down. Tlie el
