' Cnrle Joe's Commrnt on What He

Lndr Tells Why the President
Smiles Chaplain Hcle and Hln Con
People in Washington who nave
known Uncle Joe Cannon, the speaker,
for a number of years have been sur
prised at the number of Invitations he
accepted this winter, says the Chicago
Tribune's Washington correspondent.
In fact, he is quite a ladies man, in
a way. At the president's reception to
the diplomats at the White House re
cently Uncle Joe was accosted by a
lank westerner, and the two stood at
the north end of the east room in close
confab for some time. At .last the west
erner said to Uncle Joe:
"1'retty scene this color, lights, beau
tiful women, dazzling costumes, gold
bedecked diplomats a scene one must
"Yes." replied Uncle Joe laconically.
inseeting the crowd for some brother
politician. I5ut it was the first time
the westerner had ever been there, and
he went on: "Magnificent place this.
Don't rememler to have ever seen any
"Yes," replied Mr. Cannon, ceasing
to roll his eyes after the retreating form
of Senator , Hopkins, whom he wished
to catch, and resting them on a batch
of thin, uncovered spinsters a few
feet from him, "this reminds one of a
boarding house and chicken pie with
the roof off."
In the years he has passed In St.
Petersburg in the foreign service of the
United States Herbert It. I). Peirce, the
third assistant secretary of state, adopt
ed the Kussian cap and fur coat as the
best protection against severe cold.
Since the cold weather reached Wash
ington a few weeks ago Mr. Peirce has
been wearing furs which he brought
with him from Russia, says the New
York Tribune. The high round cap of
mink and broad coat collar and cuffs of
the same fur are an unusual sight in
Washington and have caused much
comment. Hefore Christmas small chil
dren called him Kriss Krinjrlo, and he
has been taken for every foreign repre
sentative in Washington.
A few days ago Mr. Peirce walked
through the White lot wearing his furs.
A crowd of Pennsylvania schoolteach
ers was standing under the porte co
chero at the White House listening to
the descriptions u guide was giving of
the government buildings which may
be seen from the executive mansion.
The .women lost all Interest in build-
imrs when Mr. Peirce appeared. The
guide's announcement, "And this man
you see coming up the walk Is Count
Cassini. the Kussian ambassador," set
half a dozen cameras at work.
P.y the way, n lady of the official cir
cle claims she lias made a discovery as
to tho origin of one of the president's
best known traits, says the Pittsburg
Posfs Washington correspondent. It
is the habit of keeping a smile or the
semblance of a smile on his face on nil
occasions. "If you ever saw the presi
dent when he was forced to banish his
smile," this lady confided to a friend
the other day. "you would understand
why it is he has acquired the habit of
wearing it on alL possible occasions. I
never saw him without it until the oth
er day at Mrs. Hoar's funeral, and I
give you my word I don't want to see
him without it again.
"No one would call his face hand
some or attractive, even when he looks
his best and smiles his genialest. IJut
when his face is in absolute repose and
not only serious, but solemn well, it's
enough to startle a timid person. It's
the most solemn human countenance
you ever saw. He probably found that,
out long ago, and that's why he wears
the smile that doesn't come off. He is
entitled to wear it."
The Rev. Edward Everett Hale, the
new chaplain of the senate, is eighty
four years old. A day or two after he
began his duties he went into Senator
Hoar's committee room, says the New
York World. The senator was not
there, but his clerk was. Mr. Halo
walked around the room and looked at
the pictures. Then he turned to the
clerk and said:
"I thought the senators were old
"Well." said the clerk, "most of them j
are pretty old. are they not.
"OldT snorted Mr. Hale. "I should
think not! There's Senator Pettus of
Alabama, who Is eighty-three and has
reached mature years, but the rest of
them are young fellows so far as I can
Mr. Hale calls the senate his congre
gation. Somebody asked him how he
likd his place.
"First rate." he said, "but there are
mornings when the congregation is
pretty thin. However," he added
cheerily, "I am drumming them up,
drumming them up."

HAPPY HOME ESSENTIALS.
"Feed the Brute" One Woman's Solu
tion of Husband Problem.
The Social Economics club of Chica
go, an organization made up of women
representing a score of woman's clubs,
has been searching for the "essentials
of a happy home."
Mrs. Edward A. Bigelow appears to
have suggests! one "essential," if the
applause which has greeted her words
by the "other hair can be taken as a
criterion. She says:
"Peed the brute good, well cooked
food and forgive him."
The husband, father and provider
was only mentioned incidentally and
as a possible though not altogether an
Some of the women in fact, the ma
jority of them were strongly of the
opinion that the wife and mother was
the chief essential.
The only good word said of the bns
band was this, by Mrs. Carroll, who
lives in the country: "It must now and
then occur to women, and even to the
most advanced club woman, that the
home is not quite complete without the
husband and father and provider. The
wife and mother must recognize in him
a piece of household furniture not al
together ornamental, only occasionally
useful, but very much needed when
"It has taken ages of repression to
bring the husband and father to his
present condition of abject slavery to
the wife and mother. He Is the victim
of a process that began in the garden
of Eden and gives no promise of ending
until he is called to the reward that
awaits the humble on the other and
Mrs. Anna Richardson of Hull House
Woman's club said: "I should say that
the first essential to a home is love
the kind that does not diminish with
years of trial. The second essential Is
cleanliness, in order to make the home
healthful and comfortable."
Mrs. L. W. Perce of the Dames of the
Loyal Legion placed Intelligence at the
head of the list "the intelligence that
conquers all the petty cares of house
keeping." WILL FIT GIRLS FOR WIVES.
Wisconsin I nlnrnlO- Adds a TVe-tr
Department to Its Carrienlnm.
The training of girls to be wives in
stead of mere social fixtures, the teach
ing of the practical and primarily use
ful arts of housewifery in addition to
the teaching of French, music and phi
losophy, will soon be inaugurated at
the University of Wisconsin, says a
Madison dispatch to the Chicago Chron
icle. A department of domestic science has
ben authorized by an appropriation of
?1..'.mhi, rooms have liecn equipped as
kitchen and laboratory, and the turn
ing out of domestic experts will begin
with the next commencement in .lune.
The appropriation for this department
was made by the legislature after the
drib women of the state had appeared
and persistently lobbied for the meas
ure. The old South hall, a dormitory a
couple of score of years ago. then chem
ical laboratory and in recent years bac
teriological laboratory and headquar
ters of the short course school of agri
culture, was renovated and equipped.
A domestic science expert. Miss Caro
line I.. Hunt, was secured, and the
work is about to begin. The enrollment
of the first class will be the limit of
the capacity of the department, as the
idea has "caught on" at Madison, and
probably it will be exceedingly popular
for the hading society girls to take a
course in cookies and pies.
The course will include scientific and
practical study and preparation of
foods, house sanitation, decoration and
management and domestic physiology.
MOTOR ICE SLED.
By n Scotsman's Invention One Mny
Make Fifteen Miles nn Hoar.
An extremely clever and novel inven
tion is that of a Scot, who has. by the
aid of an air motor, driven a sled across
the ice. says a Dundee (Scotland) spe
cial cable dispatch to the New York
The sled is able to carry six people
and consists of a wooden platform
mounted on four wooden runners. These
runners are shod with steel, the two
in the front of the skeleton being mov
able, so that they form a means of guid
ance for the sled. The steersman sits
in front and guides by means of handle
bars shaped like those of a bicycle.
The motor of about three horsepower
Is placed at the back, the propeller be
ing four feet in diameter and placed
alove the motor. The whole can easily
be driven at fifteen miles an hour and
can be stopped almost at once without
much jumping- The method in which
the motor is constructed tends to make
the sled travel faster against than with
the wind, as will the wind that comes
into contact with the propeller is util
ized as a means of speed.
Spring Is on the Way.

And. though our hills are white with
The robins in the southland know
That spring is on the way.

A PinK-r Fhall pour out his Rorf .

Around their dams the ifWf'Jl Iambs
Will !"wn bein to play;
The willows will begin to plow
In golden glory, for they know
That spring is on the wiy.
In yonder sprawling lilac bush.
S lonely and so bare,
A miracle will soon be shown.
As frapmnoe lavishly is blown
Vpon the grateful air.
The S'in is swinging north again
And lengthening the day:
Love brings to me a. sweet unrest.
And hope is singing in my breast.
For spring is on the way.
