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."
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
"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
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.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska, February 9.
?Clouds of steam have been reported
rising from Mount Redoubt, eighty
miles south of here on Cook inlet, by
L C. Grove, wireless operator at
Kenai. Mount Illamna, in the same
district, has been emitting smoke to
a greater or less degree for several
years, but this is said to be the first
time Redoubt has shown signs of ac
tivity In eighteen years. Great col
umns of steam have been reported ris

and the natives along the inlet are

EMBARGO TO STAY.
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
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
"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."
