"What Is Your Totem?" Society's Latest
UTITHAT Is your totem 7" is the lat-
Is est question In Washington
aggerdom. and If you cannot answer
offhand the Inference Is you have been
dead to the world of fashion for at
least two weeks.
Nowadays, in lieu of the familiar
monogram and the banal crest and
the erstwhile much coveted coat-of-inni,
society dames and damsels, tak
ing the cue from the aboriginal na
tives of the country, go out to the
fields and. selecting whatever bug or
bird or beast strikes their fancy,
promptly pre-empt It as their "totem."
The pvndulura has swung tbe other
way, and society with a golden halo
has elected to become America of
the Americans. If, for instance, a but
terfly is chosen as the totem, then
milady proceeds to have it embossed
on her cote paper and to have It
embroidered on her dainty lace
trimmed llogerle. Delicately cut out
of silver, the emblem Is arTixed to her
handbng. and to her card cane, while
a whir of wings flashes across the glit
tering surface of her toilet silver.

Doors of Famous Old Hotel Are Closed
m r r
TllM Metropolitan hotel, for more
than a century southern headquar
ters at the national capital, with a
history almost as long as that of tbe
city Itself, has, closed Its door for
want of a new tenant. The l.sst pro
prietors did not ask for a renewal of
their lease because of the ltss In
trsfflc caused, by the demolition of the
old Pennsylvania railroad station,
aud the diversion of transients to
points nearer the new Union terminal.
As the Indian Queen Tavern, the
traffic center of the old stage-coach
days, the hotel began its career at the
time of the administration of Thomas
Jefferson. From the courtyard In
front of the old building the Baltimore
and Philadelphia coaches started each
morning, and thrice a week a coach
left for tho old National road line to
Frederick, Cumberland and Pittsburg
In antebellum days the servants

to Be Busy "Janitor"
Lieut. Grant married not long ago
the daughter of Senator Root of New
Tork. Since that time he has been
stationed Id Boston in the engineer
department. Under the law a meaiber
of the engineer corps must superin
tend the state, war and navy building.
This is. without exaggeration, tte
largest office building in the world. It
extends from Pennsylvania avenue to
the Oval and from Executive avenue
almost all over town. Branches of
tbe enormous building can be found
on almost any street w ithin a mile.

Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh have for their
totem a bird built on hieroglyphic
lines. The bird, which ltxjks much
like a young robin with bill tightly
closed and neck considerably longer
than tbe usual, perched on the Walsh
note paper, and also on the Waish
cards of Invitation, is sometimes dull
blue, sometimes gray on gray papers,
and again it comes In glowing gold,
and yet again In gleaming silver.
Just outside the entrance to the
Walsh mansion the bird shows up In
the form of a clipped tree of dwarf
box. The Walsh totem has addi
