PAGkC TTTTlFTlt WHEN MRS. (AFT IS THE FIRST LADY Manner of Woman Who Will Rule White House If Taft Is Elected President. WiiiOiinptton. June 11. The first Imly In the land in the event of Sec rotary William H. Taft'g election to th- presidency will be Independent, democratic and will have only that regard for precedent that 1 absolute ly neces.-ary. Mrs. Taft is frankly and earnestly for her husband for president. Newspaper crrapnndents who have visited the Taft home have not been li ft doubtful on thin point. Mrs. Tuft, alfrt, thoroughly Informed, has listened Intently to questions asked t newspaper men and not Infre quently answered them before the secretary could speak. On these oc-1 caslons the secretary with the hearty latiRii that has made him famous and a nave of his hand to his wife, has told the correspondent to "talk to my campaign manager." Not (Mi Ilor n Account. Kvery one who knows Mrs. Taft Jchius that this eagerness and earn tttiess is In no sense on her own ac count. She Is for William H. Taft to the point where even the mildest criticism seem a malicious assault. The atmosphere of the Taft home Is one of hospitality to friend and Ftramrer alike. Both the secretary and his wife like to welcome visitors to their home. If these are close triends they are made to feel that the Taft home Is their own. If they come on husintvw they are treated with the utmost courtesy. No one ever goes from the door feeling that hi" call has been an Intrusion. That Is one of the reasons why Mr. snd Mrs. Taft have hosts of friends In Washington whom they might not recognize at a wcond meeting. If the ppcrt-tary Is not at home Mrs. Taft often receives even the business caller. In two-thirds of the "smart" houses of Washington one would see only a servant, Mrs Taft' mos! conspicuous trait Is genuine womanliness, with abso- lutely n affectation Her manner Is frank, direct, and she has a refresh ing sense of humor. One Imagines, urn I without doubt truthfully, that Mrs. Taft rtnl the secretary have much "fun" between themselves In conversation, without audience or ntertalnera. Natural ii-MNuonc'i. When Mrs. Taft speaks of the liiorements o( her husband, which (he rarely does unless she knows well the one with whom she Is talking, nhe discusses them in a manner which suugests that the,e things are only tile natural cmseiiuenees of the sec retary's ability. Since she came to Washington Mrs. Taft has been conspicuous for the readiness with which she disposes of iifl'airs which directly concern her. In her own home she Is much the same aa any other American woman would be. If she happens to be near the tele phone and the- bell rings, she answers It herself. She has an old fi-shloned custom, and a delightful one, of accompany ing her visitors to the front door when they are calling informally, and in many other l.ttle ways she demons trates that the routine of oflleial and social duties has in no way changed her feminine tendencies nor her Ideas of life within her own home circle. Mrs. Taft has no fad. She say fads take time and :l no. accord well with mwlril anil ofhVlal unties. Hut she has many fancies all of which are of a practical nature and she Indulges them faithfully One of these is mu xlc. Mrs. Taft before coming to Washington w:m one of the conspicu ous fitrures in musical affairs in Cin c nnati. She was president of the ' ncinnati Symphony orchestra and is affiliated w''h many of the most pr 'minei t musical organizations in that city. Mr. l:ooseve!t is fnd of music and has given several notable muslcales during her residence a! the White Ihm-i . but sli.- is not the practical musician that Mrs Taft Is.

Should Mrs. Taft In come (he next mistress of t lie Whl.c House she will Hoi take up the reins of the highest social posit. on in the country without hiving already had a near-taste of White House life. Mrs. Tafi's father wan the law partner of President Hayes and the chief executive held Mrs. Taft very close to his heart. She spent the greater part of each year at the White House, although she waa Title more than a toddler at the time. Her keenest delight was in the Im promptu suppers which always fol lowed state receptions at the White House. These were served In the private apartments of the president and were strikingly home-like. The little visitor was never permitted even a peep below stairs, but. she became thoroughly at home in the executive mansion and few years have passed since that Mrs. Taft has not been more or less In the White House. The children of the Taft family are Imbibing all the exhilarating freedom which has made association with their parents so enjoyable. They are not restrained In the pleasures they most like and are allowed to enjoy them to their hearts' content. Recent ly Mrs. Taft was entertaining a caller In the late afternoon when Charlie Taft, the son of the family, came In from a baseball game. In which the side for which he was rooting had been vanquished. "We Iost." He had not had his dinner, appar ently, but had not thought of it. He burst In through the front door and, seeing his mother in the drawing room, said: "Twelve to five, mother, and we lost." Mrs. Taft offered her sympathies and asked If "12 to 5" was very bad. "t'gh!" came a boyish grunt from the doorway In evident hopele.ness at his mother's unpardonable ques tion. If Secretary Tift Is nominated, the family will divide its time between their home and some of the coast re sorts where Secretary Taft may play golf and otherwise enjoy himself. This means undoubtedly that even if Secretary Taft contemplates a cam palgn tour It will not begin until after he has had a thorough rest from of flclal duties. Mrs. Taft will probably hear some of the Secretary's campaign speeches, but will not travel with her husband. $10.00 Stock for $3.00 MIIS.

In Rebecca West Mrs. Fiske haa a role up n which she has been at work for several years, and the re suits of this study are shown in her mas.ery of what Is generally agreed to be one of the greatest, most fascl nating women In the contemporary drama.

Reeky Sharp. At all events she Is the dominant and moving figure In a wonderful drama of love and expiation that Is the crowning work of the master modern playwright, Henrik Ibsen.
