The wind lifted President
Roosevelt's coat tail the
other day and the handle of
a revolver, protruding from
his hip pocket, was plainly
visible to a large crowd in
his rear. If anybody desired
to take the President's life
it would be some crank or
assassin and he would have
no opportunity to defend
himself, therefore his artillery
is a useless burden, un
becoming the Chief Execu
tive of the nation and a
wrong example to the youth
of the country. Only cow
ards cany pistols. The
President's every movement
is shadowed by secret service
" men, who are paid by the
government to protect him.
Mr. Bryan, who has
twice led democracy to de
feat, insists in his speeches
and writings that only ' 'regu
lar' ' democrats, and by this
term he means those who
voted for his electors, should
be allowed to participate in
democratic counsels. Mr.
Bryan seems to forget that
even he himself has not al
ways been regular that in
1892 he voted for the popu
list electors in Nebraska in
preference to the democratic
electors. However, Mr.
Bryan is a back number, and
what he has to say will not
carry the weight it once did.
There is one thing he has
done worked the democrat
ic party to a finish. His
doctrine and teachings have

A Toast to the Horse.
The horse Here's to that bundle
of sentiment nerves; with the heart
of a woman, the eye of a gazelle,
the courage of a gladiator, the
docility of a slave, the proud car
riage of a King and the blind
obedience of a soldier; the compan
ion of a desert plain, that turns the
moist furrows in the spring in order
that all the world may have
abundant harvest, that furnishes the
sport of kings, that with blazing
eye and distended nostrils fearlessly
leads our greatest generals through
carnage and renown, whose blood
forms one of the ingredients that go
to make ink in which all history is
written, and who finally, in black
trappings, pulls the humblest of
us to the newly sodded threshold of
eternity. From Rider and Driver. J
Jackson's-flome at the World's Fair.
Nashville, Tenn., September 18.
Since the people of Tennessee
have fully decided to reproduce the
Hermitage, the historic homestead
of Gen. Andrew Jackson, as the
state's building and headquarters at
Universal Expositon at St Louis,
the interest which has always been
felt in the place has naturally
been greatly increased, and all
matter written about it read with
more or less interest. Even the
dimensions and capabilities of the
house itself ae important. The
Hermitage building is admirably
suited for the purpose of a state
building, and if reproduced, as now
seems absolutely certain, will
furnish commodious, elegant and
interesting headquarters for all
visiting Tennesseans. It will at
tract attention even in the noble
company of state buildings, with
which it will be surrounded, and
will itself be a most admirable ex
hibit from the old Volunteer state.
The present building was erected
by Gen: Jackson in 1819, and for
that day was a grand and imposing
edifice, while even now it can com
mand respect among modern
structures for its commodious
proportion's, its comfortable por
ticoes, its liberal space and for the
substantial material and construct
ion. It is a brick building, every
brick having been molded on the
place and used in the greatest
liberality in its thick walls. It has
always had a tin roof and every
window is hung with coids, which
is somewhat surprising when the
date of its construction is considered.
In 1835 the house was badly
damaged by tire, nearly destroyed,
in tact, out not absolutely, it was
rebuilt in 1835-3G, and stands now
just as it did then, even the wall
paper being the same.
The Hermitage is located eleven
miles from this city and is nestled
down in a beautiful grove of state
ly forest trees, that for forty-one
years ol his eveutful life made
music that soothed the soul and
gladdened the heart of "Old
Hickory," and for more than half a
century have chanted a requiem of
everlasting song over his last rest
Every tree in the grove and every
flower in the garden is identified
with the old hero. The very
gravel on the walk and the. stones
under foot are full of memories of
him, and his long life in this, his
The driveway of eome 300 yards
from the iron gateway to the door
of the house is covered with an im
posing avenue of over-arching
cedars, which have grown hoary
with age, and when viewed for the
first time inspires one with a feeling
of respectful solemnity.
Gen. Jackson built this brick
house for his wife, "for," said he,
"I do not expect to live long in it
myself;" His health was brokeu
from his long and arduous cam
paigns, and he thought he saw
death but a little way oil. But it
was the wife who died, and Gen.
Jackson himself lived to pass twenty
six years beneath this new rooftree.
The old historic log house, built in
the wilderness in 1804, in which he
lived when the battle of New
Orleans was fought, still exists in
part at the Hermitage, located very
near the newer brick structure.
The style of architecture of the
building is the old, dignified colo
nial, and of ample proportions. It
is a pleasing style and oue worthy
of imitation even in this day of
ornate architecture, and has mu-h
to commend it, both for comfort
and convenience. The building is
fully 100 feet long on the frontage,
60 of which form the main building,
which is two stoiies in height, the
other forty comprising the single
story, but commodious wings. Six
large fluted columns support a
double portico that extends the full
length of thn main building. The
lower floor of this portico is of stone
flagging, the upper of cedar floor
ing. On entering, one finds himself in
a large deliciously cool hallway, 16
feet wide and 40 long. At the rear
end of this hallway is a winding
etairway, thoroughly colonial, and
at present carpeted with Gen. Jack
sou's own stair carpet and rods.
This hall is papered with a pic
torial representation, in four scenes,
from Fenelon's Telemaque, and
represents Ulysses landing on the
island of Calypso. This antique
wallf.aper was ordered direct from
Paris for Gen. Jackson's house
when it was rebuilt in 1836. It
shows the marks of age and in
many places the depredations of
relic hunters, who have not refrain
ed, when uuseen, from cutting from
the picture a figure's head, or tear
ing off a slip surreptitiously.
When the Hermitage was placed
in the possession of the Ladies'Her
mitage association by the state legis
lature, in 1889, this wallpaper was
hanging in ribbons and seemingly
only fit for utter demolition, but
these patriotic ladies saw too great
and interesting a relic in the old
paper, and had it carefully re
placed on the walls by an experienced
When the visitor has sufficiently
admired this wallpaper and noted
the hatrack, umbrella stand, grand
old sofa, pier table, upon which is
the bust of Lewis Cass, all of which
furnishing were belongings of Gen.
Jackson, he is called to note the

Adjoining Gen. Jackson's bed

library, or as it was always called at
the Hermitage,, the "office." In it
Gen. Jackson transacted all of his
business. In it at present are the
five book-cases of Gen. Jackson, his
walnut rtesfc, wnicn ne useu wuen a
practicing attorney, and 450 volumes
of his old books, in many of which
is written his autograph. This
library consists of histories, en
cyclopedias, poems, works of fiction
and other works that would belong
to a miscellaneous library.
Four large bedrooms on either
side of the larsre hall comprise the
second story of the building. In
one of these Uen. lataveue was
domiciled when he visited Jackson
in 1825 Auother was the room of
the artist Earle, who is buried in
the garden plat, and was a friend
and companion of Jackson
On the west side of the house
aud in the rear of the state dining
room are the pantries aud store
rooms, back of these the kitchen
and still further in the rear the
smokehouse. The kitchen has the
large old-fashioned fireplace, and
in the smokehouse are the beams

furnished the annual supply of a
nlantaiinn on which were over a
hundred slaves. On the west side
of the buildings is a frame carriage
house, in which is 6tored the
historic state coach that Jackson
used to make several trips between
Nashville and Washington city
during the presidency; also the
skeleton of the phaeton presented
him by the "Democratic-Republican"
citizens of Philadelphia. The
old state coach is in fine shape and
has been tendered the state com
mission at the World's Fair. It
has been exhibited at many of the
expositions; was, first at Phila
delphia in 1S77 and last at Nash
ville in 1897.
If the Tennessee state building is
erected Gen. Jackson's bedroom
will be reproduced and many Jack
son relics exhibited, and the whole
will form not only an interesting
