What Pretldent WM Thlaf One day a president of the United States sent for me. He had been elect ed to that high office, but had not yet been installed. "I hear," he said, "that you have just come back from Washington." "Yes." "Did you go to the White House? You did? Well, please sit down and tell me all about it. What sort of a house is It? How Is it managed? How many rooms are in It? Whereabouts does the president do his work? And how did you get in there—how do vis itors manage to see the house while a president and his family are living in it?" "Why," I exclaimed, "you have often been to Washington! Have you never visited the White House?" "No," said he, "I have only seen the outside of It. I have never even seen a president or, In fact, any great man. I am so peculiarly constituted that If I knew the greatest man in the world could be seen by walking to the corner I would not walk there. But now that I am about to make the White House my home, I should very much like to hear all that you can tell me about It."—Julian Ralph in Saturday Evening Post A Reflection on the Judge. In an address before the Virginia State Bar association James P. Harri son of the Danville bar told this story of an eminent Judge in Virginia, who sat on the bench with his feet up be fore him, showing his soles to coun sel and audience "The defense had offered a little negro as a witness for their client, and the commonwealth's attorney challenged the witness as too young to testify. When the pickanin ny had been sworn on the Holy Evan gelists, he was asked by the common wealth's attorney what he had done 'I swared,' said he. 'And what will happen to you now If you tell a lie?' the lawyer roared. 'My mammy, she'll whip me.' 'Is that alir insinuated the defend ant's attorney. 'No, sah. De debble, he'll get me.' "And then the judge took his feet down, and leaning over the bench with menacing finger said, 'Yes, and I'll get jou, too, sir!* "When quick as a flash came the boy's ready reply, 'Boss, dat's Jess what I done said.'
