White House. He was the object of
many curious ;ir.c?r.
"is dis here de President's house?"
he asked of a doorkeeper.
"Yes. Colonel." was the reply the
doorket.jr noticing the military garb.
"Well., is cut hid pussons 'lowed in". "
He '.va.. informed that no distinction

niarciied proudly into the east room.
He took in his surroundings at a

of the room, uttered word- of praise
for the President, and noiselessly

not enough, he thouirh:. to so- only
the east room. He wanted to make a

through keyholes, cracks and crevices,

Through ads of every dry-goods store,
The more I read of them, the more
I wish they were less stinted!
