Our Prices Are Lowest and Quality the Best LADDIE BOY GIVES INSIDE STORY OF LIFE IN THE WHITE HOUSE BOSTON, February 10.?A doe's view of life In the White House Is riven in a letter ostensibly written by Laddie Boy, President Harding's Airedale terrier, to Tiger, a stage dog, which will appear In the current issue of the National Magazine, to be published tomorrow. The President sent the letter, which was in reply to one from Tiger, to Joe Mitchell Chappie, editor of the magazine. "Laddie Boy has made reply," Presi dent Harding wrote, "and I am send ing you a copy herewith for your information, since you were the bearer of Tlger'a message." Describes "Thrill." After telling of "a thrill that wag ged my stub tail violently when 1 read the part you are playing, giving to the public a demonstration of the fidelity which Characterizes our lives," Laddie Boy's letter says: "Every dog plays his part well when he Is merely hla natural self, but un happily many a dog Is more or less spoiled by his environment and asso ciations. I imagine I am spoiled some myself. So many people express a wish to see me and I shake hands with so many callers at the executive mansion that I fear there are some people who will suspect me of political inclinations. From what I see of poli tics I am sure I have no such aspira tions. "Of course, it is exceedingly Inter esting and worthwhile to be In the center of so many activities of great importance, but there Is an air of earnestness and responsibility about it which I can see in my chief that I often long for the good old days back home. Ob Good Terms With "Chief." "Sometimes the chief acts as though Tte would like to sit down when he and I can be alone, and I can look at him with sympathetic eyes and he fixes his gaze on me in a grateful sort of way, as much as to say. ?Well, Laddie Boy. you and X are real friends, and we will never cheat each other.' "When the chief looks at me this way I know that he feels that I will never find fault with him, no matter what he does, and that I will never be ungrateful nor unfaithful. "I realize that a dog's life Is limited In years, but It Is, after all, a won derful life to live. I can believe we leave our Impress on our human as sociates. 1 suppose, because of my temporary assignment at the White House, you attribute to me greater knowledge than I can really claim to possess. I am only eighteen MOUNTAIN SPOUTS STEAM. Natives Apprehensive as Great Clouds Bise From Redoubt.

LONDON, February 9.?Sir Arthui Grifflth-Boscawen, the minister ol agriculture, announced today that he did not contemplate removing the embargo on the importation ol Canadian cattle, a measure which has been favored in some quarters re cently. months old and I do net know many other dogs. I have heard the chief talk about some of his dog friends and I know that ho chooses to be known as the friend of good dogs. Loves Good Little Boys. "Say! talk about fellowship?me for the company of a small boy who has been taught never to be cruel to animals. That's the associa tion for play that strengthens tfce heart and brightens the spirits. Still, there are a lot of grown-ups whom. It Is most agreeable to associate with. "When I came to the White House the mistress gave me a-rather cold shoulder. I found out afterward It was because she did .not want to be come attached to mo and excessively grieved In case our association had to be severed. Since then she has 'fallen' for me to beat the band. She lets me come to the private dining room now and then, and I can coax morsels from the table a whole lot more effectively than a lot of office seekers can appeal for Jobs. But I mustn't talk about these things, for fear I will be giving away some of the White House secrets. Alkl Kindness to Animals. "I have no doubt you will do a lot of good. If you can only have the realization that you are helping to establish a more kindly consideration of the animal life of which we are a part and you can impress your audi ences with the beauty of the friend ship of dogs for human associates who treat them becomingly and In still in human lives some of the hon esty and fidelity which characterizes the lives we do?s live, you will find a compensation in the good you have d"one which will surpass any other experience in your life." The letter says there is no cat to play with at the White House, and adds: "I do not think I am sorry thereat. There isn't as much fun in pursuing and making war on some other quadruped as some of our forbears seetp to think. It Is really fine to dwell in tranquillity." Laddy Boy signs himself, "Tours, with a cordial wag, a friendly snift and a joyous greeting." MEXICAN ESTATE SOLD. New York Corporation to Colonize 6,000,000 Acres Terrazas Owned. EL PASO.
