MRS. WOODROW WILSON DIES AT
Promise Me You Will Take Care of
My Husband," She Begs. Had
Been Sick For Months.
Washington Mrs. Woodrow Wilson,
wife of the president of tho United
Stutes, died nt.the Whlto House at 6
o'clock Thursday afternoon. Death
came after a brave sniggle of months
against Brlght's disease with compli
cations. The president was completely un
nerved by the shock and his grief was
heart-rending. He bore up well under
tho strain, however, and devoted him
self to his daughters.
Kneeling at the bedside at the end
were tho president and their threo
daughters. Dr. Cary T. Grayson,
United States navy, and a nurse were
in tho room, and Just outside a door
wcro Secretary McAdoo and Francis
B. Sayro, Mr. Wilson's sons-in-law, and
Mr. Tumulty, his secretary.
Both houses of congrcts adjourned
when Mrs. Wilson's death wbb an
nounced and for a brief time the
wheels of tho government virtually
Tho beginning of the end came at 10
o'clock Thursday morning, when Dr.
E. P. Davis of Philadelphia, who had
been called In for consultation, said
theio was no hope. He called tho pres
ident Into tho bedroom, and there in
a broken voico told him tho truth. Mr,
Wilson's fnco blanched but he horo
tho shock well. He was informed tho
end was n quoBtlon of hours.
Mr. Wilson then took his dnughters,
Mrs. W. fl. McAdoo, Mrs. Sayro ond
Miss Mnrgnret Wilson nsldo and told
them. Until then they had thought
thero was a chanco for her recover.
During, tho day Mrs. Wilson spoko

promptly ndjournod. Tho (lag on the
Whlto House dropped, gates were
cloned and the silence ot death spread
over tho Whlto House for tho firsc
time since 1892, when Mrs. Benjamin
Harrison passed away.
One day last March Mrs. Wilson
slipped on a rug at tho Whlto- House,
injuring her spine. An operation was
necessary. After weeks of convales
cence sho finally rose rrom her bed,
hut tho burden of a winter's activity
at tho Whlto House, togcthor with
charity work In the slums of tho city
brought on nervous prostration.
Stomach troublo added to her nervous
ailment and Brlght's disease devel
oped. Threo weoks ago sho seemed to

House grounds, Sho watched with
satisfaction as gnrdeners laid out the

Tho members of tho Commuters'
Crochet club wcro seated in their
facing scats on the 7:55 and tho lure
of the luncheon dolly was strong upon
them. Mabel had started out with
tho intention of making only ono
which should servo as an isolated
table-mat for a distant cousin, but
bo great was the fascination of tho
work that she had kept on, and was
now putting tho plcot edge on tho
fifth. Sadie alone was not engrossed
In work, but sat very still In her cor
ner by the window, absorbed In a
bright colored circular. Othejr cir
culars like it were strewn ov.er her
lap and peeped from her handbag.
"What's that you're reading?" asked
Mary, looking up from her work.
"It's a pamphlet on Bermuda," said
"Aro they all about Bermuda?"
"Oh, no," said Sadie. "There's ono
on Newfoundland and one on Nova
Scotia and one on the Thousand Is
lands and ono on the Adlrondacks and
another on a trip through tho Cann
dlan Rockies and a tour through Yel
lowstone Park and "
"My, what a lot of places to choose
from," said Mabel. "I think It takes
a great deal ot energy to get a, trip
like ono ot those all planned out and
know Just when your tralnB leave or
your boat starts and get all your con
nections worked out nnd know what
clothes you aro going to take."
Sadies began to trace with a hot llt
tlo finger an Intricate routo on an
orango map. IJ evidently led over hill
and dale and included a glimpse at
most of tho wonders ot tho earth.
"Leaving Now York at 4:33 on Fri
day, I would reach HUlsburg at 7:43
on Saturday morning; making n quick
connection, I would get to Plalnsville
Junction at 1:18, and from there "
"Mercy, how complicated," said Mabel.

"Yes, that would he," assented Sa
die. "I think perhaps I would pre or
tho sea trip to Bermuda. They say
that you can have a wonderful timo
there it you go to ono of tho houses,
in tho country where they take visit
ors and then hire a bicycle and see
tho Island for yourself.
"However, I've always wanted to
seo Nova Scotia, and that gives you a
lino voyage, too. If I do go by sea,
would you take Just a suit case, or
would you take a steamer trunlc
along? I think one dark suit and a
big coat and two dark waists and one
dressy waist and "
"How long is your vacation?" asked
Mabel, in her practical way.
"Two weeks," said Sadie.
"How much money aro you going
to spend on your trip?"
"Not moro than twenty-flvo dollars,
anyway," said Sadie.
"Well, I don't bcllovo you can go
to Bermuda or Nova Scotia or New
foundland or "
"Ot course, I can't," said Sadie. "I
am only planning my vacation. I al
ways plan It every year, and then I
go spend two weeks with my grand
mother who Uvea on a farm in Mlllls,
Mass. But at least I havo tho fun of
making believe I'm going somewhere
With this vacation confession, tho
train stopped, and tho girls rolled up
their work and left tho train. Sadie
marched on ahead and, as tho ferry
boat swung out of its dock, she looked
longingly down tho harbor and pro
tended she had decldod on Nova Scotia.
