"Rev. Wm. T. Bailey, pastor of the

.speech. The congregation was at once
dismissed, anil Dr. -was called. He
said Mr. Bailey was suffering from a se?
vere attack of nervous prostration caused
by hard study und overwork, and that be
must have rest and quiet.''
The whole city was shocked. The papers
soon began to record an improvement.
On April 13, 189(1, the following open
letter was addressed to the proprietors of
I'aine's celery compound:
South Baltimore, Md., April 13, 1890.

A few weeks ago there was published a
testimonial of the great virtue of Paine's
celery compound from Rev. Charles Ii.
Thompson, I). I)., LL. 1)., the eminent
Presbyterian preacher of New York City.
Rev. Dr. Meek, editor of the Central
Methodist, recently wrote an open letter
telling that Paine's celery compound bad
worked a remarkable cure in his case.
And last mouth the great temperance
evangelist, Francis Murphy, told the pub

been a blessing in his family.

ARRANGEMENT OF THE OFFICIAL
QUARTERS OF THE EXECUTIVE.
Views l'roui the Windows of tho East
lioum?Tho "Hall of tho Dlnappointt-il."
Telephone Ik Almost tho Only Modern
Improvement In the ItuUdliig.
Mr. C. C. Buel writes a paper for Tho
Century on "Our Fellow Citizen of tho
White House," devoted to tho official
cores and duties of tho president, in tho
course- of which ho says:
At 10 o'clock a hardly discernible sign
against the glass of tho barrier an?
nounces to the citizen wluxAas arrived
under tho grauiLportal thW tho execu?
tive mansion is "open-" to visitors. At
a o'clock the sign is changed to "clos?
ed." Tlio doorkeepers swing the doors
open to everybody. Within tho largo j
vestibule nothing is seen which indi- |
eates tho arrangement and purposes of
tho different parts of tho mansion. It
was not always so, for originally the
now concealed corridor, or middle hall,
with tho staircase on tho right, was a
part of tho entrance hall. Now tho
spaces between tho middle columns are
closed with colored glass partitions, and
tho vestibule is simply a large, square
room pleasant to get out of.
No way appears to open to the state
apartments in the center or to the west
wing, which is devoted to the private
apartments. Yet glass doors are there,
though as imperceptible to the stranger
as :? swinging panel. To tho left tin re
is a door which is always open. It ad?
mits to a small hall, across which a sim?
ilar door is the side entrance to the
great east room. About this Bplendid
room, comprising the whole cast end of
the mausiou, the visitor may wander at
will In lore the portraits or enjoy from
the windows the beauty of the treasury
building to the east or the impressive
landscape to the south, including the
towering shaft of the Washington mon?
ument and beyond the ever charming
Potomac, spreading with enlarging
curves toward Mount Vernon, and in
the private garden under tho windows
he may chance to seo a merry band of
From the small hall between tin- ves?
tibule and the east room a stairway as?
cends toward the medial lino of the
building to a wide middle hall, on euch
side of which are the offices of the pres?
ident. The arrangement is simple, and
in the floor plan covers the space occu?
pied below by the east room and the
greenroom, the latter being tho coun?
terpart of the small hall with tho public
stairway just mentioned. At tho head
of these stairs, over the green room, is
the cabinet room, which is the first
apartment in the south side of tho hall,
a jog of two steps, at tho private door
into the president's room, marking the
raised ceiling of tho east room below.
The president reaches his office through
tho cabinet room, entering tho hitter
foom the library, which corresponds on
the second lloor with the blue room of
the state apartments. President Arthur
indeed used the library as his office and
tho cabinet chamber for an anteroom,
while his private secretary was domi
ciled in the traditional office of the pres?
ident. During his first term Mr. Cleve?
land preserved tho same arrangement.
But General Harrison went back to the
office hullowed by Lincoln's (x-cupaney,
and Mr. Cleveland, on his return, found
the arrangement so satisfactory that be
Beyond the president's large, square
office is the corner room where Private
Secretory Thurber is always either
wrestling with the details of executive
business or standing with his shoulder
braced against tho crowd struggling to
see the president. It is a narrow apart?
ment and might be called appropriately
the "hall of the disappointed," the sug?
gestion being emphasized by portraits
of the greatest of presidential aspirants,
Clay and Webster, to which Mr. Thurber
added, as his private property, an en?
graving of the closest contestant for the
office, Governor Tilden.
On the north side of the hall there
are two rooms which correspond to those
on the south side just described, the
small one being occupied by Mr. O. L.
Prudcu, the assistant secretary sincoGen?
eral Grout's time and the custodian of
the office books as well as of the tradi?
tions which govern the public social
routine of tho executive mansion. In
his room sits tho telegraph clerk at his
instrument, and by the window is a tel?
ephone, which saves a great amount of
messenger service, between the president
and the departments. Occasionally a
congressman, with less ceremony than
discretion, attempts to get an appoint?
ment with tho ear of the president over
the telephone, and there is a record of a
stage earthquake produced in the private
secretary's room by a furious congress?
man who found the telephone ineffect?
ive and his Olympian style even less
so. Notwithstanding that it is almost
the sole modern improvement in tho
White House, President Cleveland was
seen tit tho telephone but once, and then,
needless to say, not on call.
