to furnish a shotgun to any man with
which to shoot him if he should ever
be caught at another inauguration."

ried 'him off on their shoulders. Next
morning Gray was found in a corn
field with a long gash across his face,
a stab in his back, his body almost
covered with blood, and his right
foot seriously frost bitten. Gray,
byv what seems almost a miracl'e, re
covered. The six vouing men were
released on bail of $400 eac-h. It is
reported that the case has created
great excitement and the story of the
leense is being eagearly awaited.
HE LOVES HIS BOY.
Roosevelt Showed That During the
Presidenrt Roosevelt's love for his
ayv boy. Quentin, and his interest in
children were brought out in a pleas
ait little incident of the inauguration
(lays. Charles N. Teetor is the su
perintendent of a car building com
)ay at Hlagerstown, Ind. He has a
itte son named Lothair, eight years
old. The father had agreed to bring
the son to the inauguration and the
)o felt that he would like to bring
something along to Quentin, the sev
en-year-old son of the president. The
father suggested a fine top and pro
ceeded to plan one. He ttunred the
plans over to the little son, who began
wvork upon the bronze and steel his
father had given him. With the help
f the workmen he soon turned out
the finest top even given to the son
of a president or to any other boy.
One night the little fellow worked
until nearly midnight at the iathes,
ani the other hours were put in be
fore and after school and on Satur
days. WVhen completed the mechan

the friction so little that the top, with
a li:tle pulling from a string, would
run 20 minutes. A small steel plate

Tetz-r was how to, rcach the little
son of the president. They finally
secured a letter of introduction to
Colonel Crook. the disbursing officer
o. .ie Vhite House and he acquaint
ed Quentin with the details. Quentin,
a fine little fellow, with a kind word
and thought for all. went to his fath
er Saturday, during the rush of the
inauguration and told him the story.
The father suggested that he bring
the little Indiana boy to see him. The
two boys met at the White House
Monday afternoon and Quentin ar
ranged for the visit, taking in both
the Teetors. Although the president
was extremely busy he spent some
time talking to his visitors and had
the little boy spin the top for him.
He made the youngster happy by
giving him a card upon which was
written this in the president's hand
"To Lothair Teetor, with the
thanks of Quentin's father. Theodore
Quentin also added his thanks and
the little Indiana boy was invited to
return and visit both the president
and his son.
