Chicago. John D. Rockefeller has
completed the task ho set for himself
in the founding of the University of
Chicago. Public announcement Is
made of a "single and tlnal" gift of
? 10,000,000 , which Includes all the con
tributions Mr. Rockefeller hail plan
ned. This sum , to bo paid In ten an
nual installments beginning January 1 ,
will make approximately $35,000,000
ho has donated to the university.

believes the school should be sup
ported and enlarged by the gifts of
many rather than these of : i single
donor. This , he believes , will be hotter

assistance. The founding of new de
partments ho leaves to the trustees ,
as ho says funds may bo furnished by
other friends of the university. Up
to now nearly $7,000,000 has been
donated to the university in addition
to Mr. Rockefeller's gifts.

New Year's Day at White House
President Taft. Mrs. Taft
GRAND STAIRWAY AT THE WHITE HOUSE DECORATED FOR THE
NEW YEAR'S RECEPTION. WHEN THE PRESIDENT AND MRS.
TAFT DESCEND THIS STAIRWAY THE OPENING OF THE GREAT
RECEPTION IS SIGNALED.
The "social season" In Washington
opens nominally with the assembling
of congress. In reality , it blooms fully
only with the White House reception
on New Year's day. This is always
ono of the most beautiful functions of
the winter. The great conservatories ,
into which ono enters from a back
door ol the Executive Mansion , are
rifled for choicest flowers with which
to decorate every room. Palms and
ferns add their touch of summer green
hero and there , and the ladies appear
Jn their freshest toilettes.
It is truly the president's reception.
He and his wife are supposed to be
receiving alone , though , in point of
fact , the wives of cabinet ministers
and other ladles assist. They stand In
line in the " "
oval-shaped "Blue Room ,
perhaps the most beautiful of the
White House parlors , in its furnishings
of polo blue and gold.
From eleven In the morning until
half-past one , or later , the procession
of guests flies by. First comes the
supreme court in a body , headed by
the chief Justice. Then approach the
members of the diplomatic corps , most
of them far moro stately and distin
guished in manner than our plain cltl-
The Old Man
With the Scythe
HE wonderful new year
has a way of coming
round once In twelve
months , seeming so much
the same when It dawns
upon us as the ono Just
passed that wo hardly realize another
ono has been added to these who an
swer to the roll call of Time.
When wo do realize it , there Is al
ways a bit of silence , qxcept with the
children with them everything is
new , ns we think of the fresh book of
three hundred and sixty-five leaves
that opens in its whiteness for us to
fill the pages. And wo hope that the
record will bo better than any pre
vious one , whether good or ill. And
wo put up a little prayer that we may
"make good" our nobler resolves and
"measure up" toward our high Ideals ,
so that the world shall bo better for
our having lived this year.
It Is a good time to * bo optimistic ,
to believe , with Browning , that
"God's in His Heaven ! All's well
wltli the world" when time begins
throwing his white roses' at us , and
every passing year puts Into his laden
wallet a little light from the eyes ,
a little bloom and softness from the
cheeks , a little gloss and color from
the hair , a llttlo lightness from the
step , and bestows upon us , in their
stead , a varied assortment of odds
and ends , which are , as to value , ex
actly what wo choose to make them.
It needs a llttlo moral alchemy to
turn them Into gold and diamonds ,
pearls and opals ; but with this trans
forming touch , Time's gifts are a
growing patience which brings sweet
ness and gentleness in the train. And
all of these things write them
selves clearly enough on ageing
faces , aometlmes beautifying what
was once almost destitute of charm ;
nnd sometimes spiritualizing what
once was beautiful In form and color ,
hut lacked the loveliness that results
from an equal balance of mind and
zens , and dazzling In their uniforms ,
decorations and orders.
The officers of the army and navy
rival them , however , In their gay , full-
dress uniforms , ns they como next in
More soberly clad , senators and rep
resentatives and other officials follow
them , and then comes the motley crowd
of the "general public , " rich and poor ,
small and great. Every ono enjoys a
handshake with the president and his
wife , then passes on into the Red
Room nnd beyond. Occasionally ona
hears a stranger say : "My father
went to school with your father , " or "I
know you when you were a baby. Did
you over hear your mother speak ol
Miss Sally Sparks ? " and other qunlnl
and intimate speeches. Sometimes upon
hearing one , the face of the presidenl
lights up and his set , conventional
smllo falls like a mask. It Is a sight
worth , seeing.
Never have a moro cordial nnd so
cially accomplished host and hostess
presided over the White House than
President and Mrs. Taft. The com
ing Now Year's reception there may
confidently bo expected to prove ono
of the most successful in its history.

The Way of Life.
It is being said of an elderly man In
business in Atchlson : "Ho can't stand
.punishment . as ho formerly could. "
And there is punishment to bo en
dured in making a living ; don't forgot
it. Look over your own experience ,
nnd you will detect punishment every
hour of the day. If it isn't at home , It
is on the street car or on the road.
How many ways there are to punish
n man who tries his best to get along
and behave himself. And after n man
gets old it Is moro evident every year
that the poor fellow can't stand pun
ishmcnt as ho could when ho was
younger. Atchlson Globe.

Fresh Air in Winter
In winter , it is hard to get fresh air
In certain rooms. Some rooms in a
house are usually colder than others ,
and if you open the windows it is
hard again to heat the room properly.
If you keep the windows closed
you don't get fresh air ; if you keep
them open you cannot quickly reheat
the room. The
Absolutely smokeless and odorless
solves the difficulty. You can leave
the windows in a room open , all day
in winter , and when you close them
apply a match to a Perfection Oil
Heater and heat the room to any tem
perature you desire In a few minutes.
The Perfection OH Heater Is finished In japan or nickel. It burns for
nine hours. It has a cool handle and a damper top. It has an automatic-
locking Home spreader , which prevents the wick from being turned high
enough to smoke , and is easy to remove and drop back so that the wick can bo-
quickly clcnacd. An indicator always shows amount of oil In the font.
The filler-cap docs not need to be screwed down. It Is put in like a cork
in a bottle , and is atV.hcd ( to the font by a chain.
The burner body or gallery cannot become wedged , because of n new
device in construction , nnd consequently , It can always be easily unscrewed In
an Instant for rewlcking. The Perfection Oil Heater is strong , durable , well
made , built for service , yet light and ornamental.
