How the President Lives
in the White House
WASHINGTON, Feb. 8.?The force
of domestic servants at the White
House is very happy over the state
meut attributed to Gov. Wilson that
he intended to retain all of them af
ter lie became President. At the pres
ent time the household force consists
of twenty-four men and women who
serve under the orders of a house
keeper.
People here who know something
of the internal arrangements of the
White House think Gov. Wilson has
shown great sense in his reported de
cision to retain the servants on duty
here. If. in recalling his boyhood
days in Virginia he remembers the
way the old family cook used to pre
pare chicken and hoe cake, he will be
delighted with the culinary art of
Alice Howard, the second cook. Ex
President Roosevelt especially delight
! ed in her hoe cakes, and it is said
that she certainly can cook possum.
The head cook at the White House
is Mrs. Martha Peterson Mulvey, who
is not only proficient in her chosen
work, but is greatly respected by the
White House family and all those with
whom she is brought in contact. Mrs.
Mulvey went to the White House as
head cook early in the Taft adminis
tration. butremained there only a short
time. Her departure was occasioned
by her marriage to one of the police
men on duty in the White House
grounds. Illness, however, compelled
him to give up active duties service,
and Mrs. Mulvey returned to her old
position.
During the social season Mrs. Mul
vey's work is exacting on account of
the many State dinners that are giv
en by the President and his wife. The
dishes served at these functions dur
ing the Taft administration have been
praised highly, and to Mrs. Mulvey is
due the credit for their preparation.
The oldest member of the White
House domestic staff in point of ser
vice is W. J. Wilkins, a colored man.
who is one of the three butlers em
ployed there. He first obtained em
ployment in the Executive Mansion
[during the administration of Presi
dent Benjamin Harrison more than
t twenty years ago. When President
Cleveland entered the White House
j for his second term Wilkins and all
the other members of the domestic
1 staff who had been given service in
the Harrison administration were dis-l
charged by the stweard who came in
to olflce with Mr. Cleveland. Wilkins I
was reappointed to the White House
force when Major McKlnley became i
President, and ho has done service
there ever since.
All the White House servants and
other employees whose duties have
to do with the domestic life of the
President and his family are paid from
an appropriation for the maintenance
of the White House and its grounds,
or are carried on the rolls of the ex
ecutive ofllce. In addition to the
housekeeper and the custodian of the
White House there are three butlers,
four men cleaners, three housemaids,
one of whom acts as a personal lady's
maid; one cook, one assistant cook,
two kitchen maids, four to six laundry
maids, four doormen, and one foot
man.
The custodian and three chauffeurs
are carried on the rolls of the Exec
utive ofllce.
Years ago the upper servants of the
White House were provided for spe-|
cifically in the Executive Legislative,
and Judicial appropriation bill, their
pay in each case being stated in the
bill. This practice was changed grad
ually, until Congress appropriated a
White House, out of which the wages
lump sum for the maintenance of the
of the domestic force were paid.
Up to the beginning of the Taft
administration the duties of attend
antes at the main entrance of the
White House were performed by po
licemen detailed from the Washing
ton police force, but Mrs. Taft substi
tuted negro doormen, who wear an in
conspicuous livery and now there are
no policemen in the White House
itself, although a few of them are de-1
tailed in the Executive offices.
Speaker Cannon Speaks
of four Great Men
A speech delivered in Congress re
cently by former Speaker Cannon
has caused1 considerable com meat, pro
and con. The ex-Speaker spoke on the
building of a monument to President
Lincoln, as follows:
?'Now a word us to the Lincoln mon
ument. There were four great char- J
, acters in that great contest for the |
preservation of the Union?Abraham'
Lincoln, Gen. Grant, Gen. Lee, and
Jefferson Davis. It is all behind us.
Arlington, the home of Lee, is now the
burial place for Union soldiers and
Confederate soldiers ? a monument
that will stand forever across the Po-.
tomac in the State of Virginia. Oh.
.Mr. Speaker, I stand here a Represen
tative from Illinois. I had a personal
acquaintance with Abraham Lincoln
when I was a young man and came on
I to the sphere of action. I loved Ab
raham Lincoln personally. I loved
his magnificent service in the preser
vation of the Union?the great, wise,
strong, charitable, patriotic man.i
Speaking respectfully, to my mind it
is the prostitution of that great man's j
name when you speak of using it as!
an argument for the promotion and
construction of good roads.
"1 am willing to assist and have the
Federal Treasury assist properly to
ward their construction as post
roads, or in aid of their construction.
With the Washington Monument
standing there, as it will stand
through the ages, is there a man with
in the sound of my voice, is there j
a man Congress, is there a man North (
or South, that would purchase the
construction of a road from here to
Richmond, the price thereof being
the pulling down of the Washington
1 Monument? Not one: not one. Talk
about utility, there are certain great
characters that will dwell in the his
tory of the country. First and barely
first. Washington; second, Lincoln,
third. Lee, a great man, a great Gen
eral, who did his duty fro his patri
otic standpoint; fourth, Jefferson Da
vis, a great man performing a great
service for a proposed new public as
lie saw his duty.
"A hundred years from now the or
dinary reader will recall this period,
and there will be in the mouths of the
school children the names of Washing
ton, Lincoln, Grant Lee and Jefler
son Davis. But you will have to
search the Congressional Record and
the encyclopaedias to find out about
the balance of us, who have been
Speakers, ex-Speakers, Members of
Congress in the House and Senate.
Take Mr. Cannon, for instance. I have
been Speaker for eight years. They
will say, 'It does appear that there
was a man from Illinois by the name
of Cannon, but I dou't know much
about him. There was another man
by the name of Cannon in Congress
from Utah, and it was said that he had
seventeen wives.' And, gentlemen, I
trust that the Washington Monument
and the Lee Home at Arlington, hold
ing the hallowed dust of the Union
and Confederate dead, in the fullness
of time will be connected with the site
of the proposed Lincoln Monument by
a bridge across to that great burial
place.
"I have no quarrel with anybody,
but as I pass out of this Congress I
hope that a memorial will be pro
vided for the memory of this, the sec
ond greatest man, if not the first, that
ever lived upon this continent, that
ever lived in the history of the race."
7,1 VE BABY SENT
BY PARCEL POST
BATAVIA. O., Feb. 7?Vernon O.
Lytle, mail carrier on rural route No.
5 out of this place, was the first man
to accept and deliver under parcel
post conditions a live baby. The
baby, a boy, weighing ten and three
quarter pounds, just within the eleven
pound weight limit, is the child of Mr.
and Mrs. Jesse Beagle or Glen Este.
The "package" was well wrapped
and ready for "mailiing" when the car
rier got it. Its measurements reached
seventy-one inches, also just within
the law, which makes seventy-two
inches the limit. Mr. Lytle delivered
th& "parcel" safely to the address on
the card attached?that of its grand
mother, Mrs. Louis Beagle, who lives
about a mile from the baby's home.
The postage was fifteen cents and
the "parcel" was insured for $50.

sult of the settlement of the contest

combination of Eastern Hard Wheat and Western Soft
