Practical Joke, Played by Presi
dent on Newspaper Man.
'GET UP, THERE!" HE ROARED
Absentminded Correspondent Sat Still
as a Thousand Virginians Rose to
Honor Chief Executive Sorry Jim
Wasn't Among Journalists He Made
Comfortable In His" Private Car.
President Taft's humorous disposi
tion is well known, but he came to
the front as a practical joker on his
recent trip to Petersburg, "Va., and
Charlotte, N. C, At Petersburg he had
luncheon on the veranda of a beauti
ful southern mansion, and in front of
him on tbe'lawn were 1,000 men of the
F. F. V.'s. At the -table nearest the
veranda were the newspaper men of
the Taft party, most of whom bad
been with him In the campaign, to
Panama and, one of them, around the
world. . " .
A picture was to be taken, and Pres
ident Taft, accompanied by two gov
ernors, senators, several congressmen
and a lot of colonels of staff in gold
braid, ranged themselves on the steps.
When the president stood all of the
1,000 men on the lawn rose to their
feet except one newspaper man. He
was tired, had seen a lot of things
like that and was a little 'bored. Be
sides, he was thinking about some
thing else. The president, within ten
feet of this first table, happened to see
the newspaper man sitting In his chair
and gazing disinterestedly about, and,
pointing a commanding finger, he
"Get up, there!"
The newspaper man, recognizing the
familiar voice raised to riot call vol
ume, looked about alertly for the
source of trouble. He saw nothing to
caus.e alarm, but the next moment was
jerked to 'his feet by a stout hand In
serted in his collar:
"Get tip!" commanded a voice in his
ear. "He's got a right to order you
The newspaper man stood obedient
ly, still held by the indignant Virginian
who had yanked him from the chair. '
That night, leaving Petersburg , to
go to Charlotte, the president discov
ered that, while he had a private car
and could sleep in comparative com
fort all the way, any one trying to
keep up with him would have to
change cars twice in the night and
lose any seasonable chance to rest.
Captain Archibald Butt, his military
aid, discovered this fact and gave It
to the president Mr. Taft at once
invited the newspaper men of. the
traveling party intoMiis car..;
"There's no use in you -folks, having
a hard night," he said. "I don'Cknow
how many extra berths we've 'got in
this carriage, but Archie," as the pres
ident calls his aid, "will do the best
he can. By the way, Where's Jim?"
Jim was the friend who had been
ordered to get up. He had gone on
to Charlotte by another- route. The
president sincerely expressed the hope
that he wasn't, "sore" and said good
It was found that there were three
vacant berths in the - president's car,
so the six newspaper men drew lots,
and three of them slept on mattresses
on the floor of the drawing room." It
was comfortable., and, more, important.
they were on time for the next day's
In the morning the man ordered to
get up, arriving on another train at
the same station, walked into the pres
ident's car. Mr. Taft reached out his
hand and shouted: . .
""Why, hello, Jim! I haven't seen
you for a long time." ' , - .
: "You saw me all right 'yesterday,
Mr. President," said the newspaper
"Well," said the president, with mocfe
severity," "will you stand up when you
see me again?"
"I haven't been able to sit still
since," said the victim of the joke
The president spoke with earuestr
ness of his two days at Tetersburg and.
Charlotte. He felt, he said,, that the
reception, not to him, but to the presi
dent of the United States, was sincere.

MONUMENT TO ADAM.
Builder" Says Pirst Man Should Have
Homage Paid to Other Pioneers.
Bi'lieving that it is better late than
never. John P. Brady of Baltimore,
contractor and builder, bus bad erect
ed at his ' country - house. Hickory
Grounds, near Uardenville. Md.. a
monument to the memory of Adam,
the first man. "
After spending much thought upon
designs for the-monument Mr. Brady
came, to the conclusion that nothing
could, be more fitting than a plain
square shaft of concrete surmounted
by a sundial.
Without saying that women will not
be admitted. Mr. Brady wishes the oc
casion of the dedication to be distinct
ly masculine. He has -no intention at
any time to erect a memorial to Eve.
The ' monument bears two opposite
panels, which read:
THIS, THE PIRST SHAFT IN
AMERICA, IS DEDICATED
TO ADAM. THE FIRST MAN.
In the circular form surrounding the
sundial is the Latin quotation:
"Sic transit gloria mundi" (feo passes
the glory of the world). '
"After all, there is no serious reason
why there should not have been thou
sands of memorials to Adam," said
Mr. Brady the other day. "Some of us
may.- blame him for the misfortunes
which we get in this world, but few of
us wish that we had not been brought
here.'' It was kind of Adam to come
first.' He paved the way and should re
ceive"? the homage which we pay to
pioneers In all fields. There seems to
be glory enough to go around for ev
ery ,ohe who ever did anything, and
many; monuments and other tributes
have honored men who never did any
"If it Is so easy to get one's name
graved in stone I thought it was high
time'Adam tufa something to show for
having been here. Adam had a pretty
hard time of tf. He was something of
a hero, after all. Just think of it, to
be here on this big earth, not a soul
