were not so much solicitious for Yen

A WOMAN'S VETO.

Wai Xevrr (oilrmrd.
An Incident which occurred during
the first Cleveland administration il
lustrates the good feeling existing be
tween the newspauer men and tlie
chlefof the bureau of naval construe
tion. A certain correspondent, who
was on particularly Intimate terms
tvith the thief, called at bis office and
was received with unusual cordiality.
Calling the eorresiondent by his first
name, the chief said: "Look here.
Blank. I want you to do something for
me. Mr. 's appointment to a place
in this department, after being fought
through two congresses, has prevailed
has been signed by Secretary Whitney
and onlv waits the signature of the
president. You, of all men in Wash
ington. can. find out what action-the
president wiil take, and I think you
know a way to prevent the document
The correspondent replied, "I think I
know a way." He left the building and
went for Miss , who was at that
time doing Washington society for
the Associated Press. To her he told
the story and explained what lie
Miss obtained an audience with
Mrs. Cleveland and told what she
came for. Mrs. Cleveland went to the
president's desk and singled out a
paper with the remark, "there, I guess
that is the one you mean." She then
turned a corner of the document down
and left it.
In the course of his work the presi
dent came to the paper and then, in a
surprised tone, said to Secretary La
mont, ' Dan, do you know anything
about this appointment?"
"Well." said the president, "Frances
lias evidently turned this down for a
purpose. I guess It's all right." And the
official signature was not attached.
"It I wrre a man," the woman said,
"I'd make my mark ere I was dead;
I'd lead the world with a battle cry.
And I'd be famous ere I should die
It 1 were a man.
"If I were a youth," the old man cried.
"I'd scire all chances, I'd go with the tids:
I'd win my way to the highest place
And stick to honor and seek his grace
11 1 were a Youth.'
"If I were rich," the poor man thought.
"I'd give my all fur the poor's sup'urt;
I'd oen mr door, ami I'd open my heart.
And goodness auJ 1 would never part
Jf 1 were rich."
And lo, if all tltcse ifs came true.
The woman a man. the man a youth.
The poor man rich then all in truth.
