for yesterday, was also on hand, and

did nothing special beyond provid

* members not being on band yester
day was one that is aptly illustrated
by the saying, what is every body's
business is nlobody's4. 1Each of the
members thought that every other
member would be on hand and that
h is presence would be unnecessary
*the consequence being that no one,
excepting the State treasurer, was
there. The board adjourned for two
weeks to await the tabulation.

PRESS ROOM AT WHITE HOUSE.
President Sees to it that Newspaper Men
are Not Ignored.
Washington, November 17.-For
the first time in history the President:
of the United States has set apart a
room adjoining his own offices for
the exclusive use of the press. In
the new office building, west of the
White House, the correspondents
have a separate room, provided with
a huge oak table, chairs and three
telephones for their convenience.
The room adjoins the big central
waiting room, where all.callers gath.
er before they are admitted to the
office of the President or Secretary
The door of the presR room stands
open, and the man of consequence inf
politics, business or rank-who escapes
without being interviewed is fleet of
foot indeed. In the White House,
before it underwent its remodelling
process, when the President and his
clerical force were all quar.tered on
the second floor, the newspaper men
whose duty took them there had to
content theinselves with a table
placed at the eastern end of the gen.
eral waiting room. They had no
telephones at their disposal, and
when they wished to call up their
respective offices were obliged to go
into the "war room" and ask Col.
Montgomery's permission to use the
wire. Col. Montgomery's telephone
was often busy at the very time the
newspaper men wished to use it.
Now, with the thr'ee telephones at
band, Col. Montgomery's dignity will
uo be so frequently. disturbed, and
the business of sending important
"items'' to the uttermost ends of the
aarth wvill be greatly facilitated.
President. Roosevelt holds, perhaps,
more than any of his predecessors,
a warm place in his heart for the
newvspapecr fraternity. He has ap
pointed several of his, newspaper
friends to good position~s ini the pub.
lie service. He is exce'edinigly ap
proacihable anid ofton favors the cor
responidets with his political conil
dlences. When the new office build.
ing was platined it was quite natu
ral, therefore, that the President
abonld order a "press room"~ in the
most convenient location and of the
most commodions arrangement possi
ble with the appropuiation at hand.

A REMARKABLE CASE. I
Young Girl bles in New York Hospitil
After Continuous Sleep of Twenty
Some days ago was published an
account of the mysterious case of
Nellie Corcoran in St. Vincent's hos
pital, New York. For days she had
lain in a sound sleep and no effort to
a':ouse her had succoeded.
The girl fell into her state of un
consciousness October 18 at the house t
where she was employed as a servant. t
At the hospital where she was taken '
heroic efforts to determine the
cause of her condition met with t
little success. Hundreds of physi. C
cians examined her, and every known
method was tried to awaken her, but C
with little success. Twvo or t,hree C
times she was aroused and spoke ar
few words, saying she was sleeping
and again became unconscious.
Electricity was applied and in se
vere applications, b)ut ineffectively.
Neurologists and pathologists tried '
to diagnose the girl's condition, but r
could not. Specialists of nearly i
every medical field were called in,t
but they arrived at no conclusions as
to the cause of the comas or its proper
diagnosis. It was even su1ggested -i
that someone had by pnotized her
and efforts to throwv off such a spoii
wvere made, but to no0 purpose. 1Her
temperature increasedi rapidly, she i
became emaciated1 anid finally stopped C
breath ing, after having slept 20 days. i
There was an autopsy, but nothing
was discovered in the condition of d
the organs to account for the strange 6
sleep. The brain was kept for ex- 1
amination by specialists on that or
gan and it is believed the secret wvill C
be dliscovered there.
