Mrs. Roosevelt Put Everyone at
Ease by Her Informality.
President's Wife In Graceful Wblte
Costume (Jives Special Atten
tion to the Children.
In a dreary drizzle of rain nearly t,OOO wo
men and children waited in line without the
White House to bp received by Mrs. Roosevelt
at her flrtt public reception, says the Chicago
Tribune. The line began forming at half past
1 o'clock, although the reception did not begin
until i, and by the time of opening the visi
tor* were, for the. most part, both tired and
damp. Anticipating the bad weather, Mrs.
Roosevelt had ordered everything possible
done to Insure the cherfulness of the interior
of the house for her first reception to the
people. The red corridor, the blue room,
where she received, and the east room, where
the throng stopped for a moment after being
presented, were each profusely decorated with
palms, ferns and potted plants.
Every available light was turned on, and,
with the bright costumes of the debutantes
and invited quests behind the line, the scene
was especially eheerftil. Music from the Ma
rine band lasted throughout the reception.
The conservatory was open and lighted, but
on account of the repairs in progress no one
visited it President Roosevelt's hold upon
the people Is shared by Mrs. Roosevelt, and
her gracious manner deprived the reception
of the usual formality attending such occa
• . The gown of the president's wife was a
graceful on* of cream white crepe, the skirt
cut in prevailing close fashion, the bottom of
the skirt flaring over numerous frills of the
same material. The closely fitted bodice was
trimmed in lace applique, forming a yoke and
vest, the whole design daintily outlined with
a tracery of gold thread. The tops of the
plesves were trimmed in the same lace, while
the lower part flared over a full puff of white
chiffon. The same trimming was arranged
about the upper part of the skirt.
Mrs. Roosevelt objects to an elaborate coif
fure, and wore It, as she usually does, loosely
combed to the top of her head and disposed
In a graceful knot.
Her hair ornament was a lace bow, held in
place by a rhinestone buckle, to which was
added a white aigrette.
Mrs. Roosevelt was assisted in receiving her
guests by Mrs. Knox, wife of Attorney Gen
eral Knox, who was dressed in orchid-colored
velvet, trimmed about the throat and bodice
with exquisite lace. Mrs. Smith, wife of the
postmaster general, who also assisted, wore
a gown of pale gray embroidered crepe, and
Miss Wilson, daughter of the secretary of
agriculture, who stood in line, wore an im
ported gown of red silk, with a yoke and
sleeves fashioned of white and black.
The usual custom of having the young la
dies of tbe cabinet and other euests behind
the receiving line was observed, and among
those to occupy the blue room this afternoon
was Miss Alice Roosevelt, who took the great
est possible interest in the reception from
first to last, and who wore a gown of light
blue cre>pe de chine with a yoke of white lace
and 'black velvet.
The matrons and maids assisting behind the
line were all beautifully gowned and added
much to the brilliancy of the scene in the
blue room.
MDc of the pretty features of the afternoon
was that every time a child passed down the
line—and, notwithstanding the rain, there j
were lots of them —Mrs. Roosevelt stopped I
and petted them, and frequently stopped the
line to have a little talk with the children.
Another noticeable departure from tb« old
rule of White House receiving was that nei
ther Mrs. Roosevelt nor the ladies receiving
with her shook hands with any but the chil
dren, confining their greetings to a pleasant
[ bow and a few ■words. The reception lacked
I all of the strict formality and discomfort that
usually mars a public reception, and even the
veriest stranger seemed quite at ease.
Paris Ha* a. New Musical Idol In
Miss Abbott.
Paris has a new grand-opera star, and she
is an American girl, Miss Bessie Pickens
Abbott. Her debut was made at the Grand
opera house as Juliette in "Romeo and Ju
Manouery, a famous teacher, says: "Miss
Abbott is the best Juliette I have ever heard.
Moreover, with the exception of Patti, she
is the only prima donna who has ever been
able to render the part as written in the
original score. That is to say. Miss Abbott
sang the score of Juliette in G, which re
quired her to put her full voice on high D,
the attack of which was absolutely perfect.
It should be remembered that neither Melba
nor Eames ever attempted to sing the score
of Juliette in G, but did so in F, a full tone
lower than Miss Abbott sang it."
Pierre Gaihard, the director of the opera,
states: "In my opinion Miss Bessie Abbott
is the most perfect Juliette that has ever
sung in Paris, and to saying this I do not
even except Pattl. Miss Abbott's compass is
most remarkable, ranging from B below the
line to G above the line, or high G."
After Miss Abbott completed the first phrase
of the score of .lultette at the opera on Mon
day night, Gaihard ran up to her and kissed
her on the cheek and exclaimed: "My dear
child, your triumph is assured."
Miss Abbott replied: "Why. I have scarce
ly begun to sing yet." Gaihard rejoined: "O,
you have won the ear of the public and you
are a success now, no matter what you
may do."
Among those who expressed delight at the
success of Mtes Abbott's debut were Ambas
sador Porter and James Gordon Bennett, who
surprised Paris by his enthusiastic praise of
the young singer.
Miss Abbott was on the vaudeville stage
for three years, singing toon songs with her
6isters. She belongs to the famous Pickena
family of South Carolina, and on her moth
er's side is a grand niece of the late Arch
bishop Benson of Canterbury. On the advice
of Jean De. Reszke, whom she met in Eng
land, she gave up ballad singing four years
ago and took up the study of opera. Her
success has caused considerable heartburn-
ing among the fashionable teachers of Paris
to whom most of the American pupils go,
as she has surpassed any of their recent pu
pils. Miss Abbott credits her success to the
instruction of Mme. Freda Ashforth and M.
Fidele Koenig, chef de chant of the Paris
Her Pamphlet Will Hesult in < losing
Concentration Camps.
The Boer concentration camps are to be
broken up and abandoned as rapidly as pos
sible. This announcement was made a few
days ago by the British secretary of war, and
tt Is the direct result of the courageaua and
unselfish labors of Miss Hobhouse, who was
recently ignominiously expelled from South
Africa for her fearless exposure of condi
tions there.
A London cable says:
"Miss Hobhouse was guided by pure hu
manity, and had no ends of her own to serve.
Her family, a very well-known one in the
west of England, are divided in politics, and
she herself had never before taken any part
in public affairs. It was- not her wten to
publish any account of these camps at all.
"When she first returded from South Africa
last spring, she communicated with the gov
ernment officials, and entreated them to act.
After waiting for some weeks and find Hug
that nothing was done, she yielded reluc
tantly to the pressure of friends, and her
pamphlet appeared.
'The result has amply justified its publi
cation, and should be more than recompense
to her for all the obloquy ehe has endured.
The war alßce has not even waited for the
report of Mrs. Fawcett, Miss Dean and other
ladies whom, in consequence of Miss Hob
house's pamphlet, it appointed to Inspect the
camps. It has surrendered unconditionally.'"

Parisian Manic Classes Now Include
Many Boys.
A Paris letter says:
Miss Ellen Beach Yaw, who has commenced
her third year at a school here, made a de
cided hit in the Saint-Saens songs,, which she
sang with pleasing artistic conception. Tho
register of her voice has been wonderfully
improved by her Paris studies and she gives
promise of great success.
Mme. Marches! has just given a musical in
honor of Saint-Saena, when the illustrious
master presided over the piano and accom
panied his compositions as sung by pupils.
The latter were nearly all American girls.
The percentage of Americans studying mu
sic in all the classes has greatly increased,
and a large number of American boys am
coming to Paris for their musical studies.
The vocal classes are full of boys from 17
to 25 years of age who are preparing for a
musical career. As recent as five years ago
there were hardly more than one or two boy
students in the various classes; now they can
.be counted by the dozens.
Many of these boys are paying their own
way by working outside of study hours.
Others have saved up enough to carry them
through their course of study, while still
others have wealthy men back of them wlw
expect future De Reszkes of their proteges.
The boys in question make a new interesting
addition to the American student element and
have attracted a good deal of attention in mu
sical circles.
Americans Eat More Olives Than
Any Other People.
Few lovers of olives have the slightest idea
of the methods to which the fruit is subjected
before being bottled. When gathered they are
exceedingly bitter and require long-continued
washing in clean water before being con
signed to a brine. They ripen In November
and come from the trees tough, bitter and
bright green. They are subjected to several
days of fermentation In line mater, which
gradually mellows and sweetens them. Then
they are washed in barrels, sometime! for
twenty days, sometimes for eight months.
The last process is the pickling In fresh
brine, and the packing in bottles, kegs, half
barrels and barrels, as they come to the
wholesale, then the retail trade.
Eminent physicians prescribe olives largely
for all sorts of nervous diseases, for indiges
tion and gastritis. They warn only against
poor olives, which are far from healthful. A
perfect olive 1b of a yellowish green tinge,
hard, and wlien bitten the mouthful is entire,
not mushy nor spongy. The stone should
have a pinkish color and the sm«ll ought to ba
fresh and agreeable.
Beware of poor olives, as of poison. Fre
quently during a voyage a barrel will burst
or leak and the brine escape. They reach
New York Cry, withered and dark folored.
Still there is always some dealer ready for
a bargain. Tht olives are bought at bargain
counter prices, pickled and plumped in brine
or vinegar, and sold. They may be discovered

America is the greatest olive bating nation
on earth. We consume the bulk of our own
crop grown in California, and half each
year of the total crop of Spain, which aver
ages 2,000,000 gallons. The United States takes
the very pick of the crop shipped from Spain;
she is ready to pay tne price asked, and
the result is that in first-clans Spanish hotels,
even in Seville itself, the very center of the
olive country, an American {ourist can rarely
find an olive he considers fit to eat. In the
eastern states we are acquainted with noth
ing but the green olive. We have it in all
sizes, from the finest, largest specimens to
the small, but edible olive of a yellowish
tinge. On the western side of the continent
thousands of gallons of ripe olives are eaten.
Californians consider them much superior in
flavor to the green variety, while the visitor
from the ea^t finds the liking of them an
acquired taste. They are purple as a plum,
sometimes nearly as large as a ripe Damson,
the soft fleshed. You bite Ir.to them without
the resistance tbere is in a green olive, and
they have an entirely different flavor. They
are full of the oil of th« olive aud are con
sidered more nourishing.

Por Her the Bible, Shakapere and
Homer Suffice,
"What do I read?' said Mrs. Sarah Cowell
LeMoyne recently to an interviews "To tell
you the tr\tth, In 'point of volume my reading
has been rather limited in late years, but 1
believe I have solved the problem of deriving
ill the intellectual pabulum I require from a
very, few books. You know the time of an
ictress is very fully taken up by her labors
and the necessary attention to strictly pro
fessional literature. You scarcely have an
Idea of how many plays in manuscrlDt are
3e-i»t to managers and stars, and I go through
all that I receive almost religiously, never
knowing when I may find a jewel in a toad's
head. But when I sit down to read for recre
ation or profit, I ''online myself chleftv to
three books, the King James version of the
Bible, Shakspere's plays and Pope's Homer. |
[ believe with Emerson that an English read- j
er can get as much inspiration and delight j
from readirg the recognized translation of \
the great classics as from the originals them- j
selves, and I never tire of Pope's noble ren
lering of the 'Iliad.* I find that almost cv- '
erything in literature is to be derived from
:hese three immortal books. They satisfy
jne's taste for poetry, philosophy, religion, '
»nd to a certain extent history. If every other
i-estlge of the world's letters were swept away
md thes« three volumes were preserved, the
ace would still be left rich. I have often
noticed that the really great -writers, orators
ihd poets of the second clas draw almost ex
•lualvely on the Bible, Shakspere and Homer
'or illustrating, embellishing and enriching
heir own productions. A famlllarty with
;hese three books, I undertake to say. wll
?laee its possessor in the first rank or culti
vated people.
"Of course, it Is Impossible for any one
who leads a busy life to make himself conver
sant with all that is admirable in literature,

:o read too much, either through o mistaken
dea that ft Is significant of ignorance not
a seem to know all about books, or through
i sincere desire to- explore all literary paths,

Sometimes when books are numerous a

! the purpose of window. eeal, i* given up to
them. In this case the bow la fitted round
with a series of bookshelves, the top shelf,
on a level with, the window ledge, alon« being
reserved for ornaments and flower*. A stu
dent solved this problem Ingeniously.
.His. room was fitted up to the height of the
dado around the entire wall, save where the
door and fireplace interfered with shelves
crammed with bcoks. These shelves took
some hundreds of volumes, all within easy
reach. The furniture was pushed out from
the wall a little, but a big sofa was runup
close against books that were not wanted for
frequent reference and the shelves were of
no inconvenience in the matter of room spac.
The top shelf was prettily set out with photo
frames, miniatures and knick-knacks.
