LITTLE KNOWN CHAPTERS OF *
EX - PRESIDENT’S LIFE BARED IN INTIMATE STORY OF WILSON (Continued From Page One.) been brought about by a particular treatment for frequent head colds to which he and the first Mrs. Wil son were subject. The wife died soon after, but his case yielded to treatment. ■Some years before that, Mr. Wil son had suffered a thrombosis, in one of his'legs. It was the. lodgl-Tg of a blood clot in an artery, but because of its location, not serious. It was. however, a complaint of the same nature which caused his break down in 1919. when the clot formo.d on the right side of his brain im pairing the control of his loft arm and leg. Little known also, is the fact .that Mr. Wilson, like Mr. Roosevelt, was practically sightless in one eye. bursting blood vessel in''’the retina practically made it useless, although the impairment was in part overcome by the use of glasses. He suffered also from nervous indigestion. With a predisposition to take cold easily added to this list of troubles. Wood row Wilson took up the arduous duties of the Presidency with far less physical equipment than the people generally gave him credit for. Once in office tho round of com plexities which brought Mr. v Wilson praise on one side and damnation on the other was not long in start ing. Like a snowball rolling down hill it continued to take on volume until the day of liis departure from the Whltn House. Debates Succession Once in tlie midst of his seige of prostration which accompanied the first stapes of his present Ill ness, he debated with himself wheth er he flight not to* relinquish his j office and give way to bis successor.: La'pr when his health had hnnroved| and the Democratic convention at San Francisco was balloting night and day to agree on a presidential; nominee, Mr. Wilson debated with himself whether he should he a can didate for a third term. It could not he =njd that either subject reached the -tape of ‘.‘bqinp considered". Out it waft known that Mr. Wilson gave the subjects some thought. These with many other tilings form the highly interesting unwritten chapters of Woodrow Wilson's life. They would make a volume of far more engrossing reading than any thing that has ever been written About him. But a volume might Include the ‘‘inside story" of the break with Col. E. M. Housq, his former con fidential advisor; It might tell of row Mr. Wilson, rousing Mr. Cletn eoceau, ihe French Premier, from bod at 2 o’clock in the morning, practically charged the French dele gates with having tampered with the records of the peace conference proceedings. Resolved To “Fire” It might tell of how Mr. Wilson made up his mind to "fire" some other cabinet officers soon after the resignation of Secretary of Slate Robert E. Lansing but desisted, hr cause, he said. it would only add to the popular impression that he "couldn’t get along with anybody." It might also tell what Mr. Wilson "said with a smile" to Lloyd George concerning the relative strength of the British and American navies, ahd it might disclose that Mr. Wil son went to tlie peace conference prepared to withdraw, its he threat ened to do to. In the midst. All the?' things, however, If they do become public, probably will do so by the pen of the historian after Woodrow Wilson itas been assigned to bis proper 'niche in the walls of history. While the principal act ors in the series of dramas live, all these tilings are likely to remain behind the scenes. Mr. Wilson's re tireinent from public life is not likely to release them for public consump tion. Until tlie beginning of the World War Mr. Wilson held tin* attention of the country with his swift strokes at getting legislation from Congress. With the coming of the war lie de voted tlie first two years of his first term to an attempt to keep tlie United States out of the conflict, and as tlie seemingly inevitable drift toward war set in. tie gradually as sumed the diplomatic leadership of the nation arrayed against Germany and her allies, and finally assumed what his partisans characterized as IN THE OLD DAYS Perhaps it paid to do the family washing- at home. But our fam ily laundry service is convincing women that there's truer thrift in sending their family bundles to us, to be washed and ironed in our scientific, clothes-con serving way. Phone 15.

SEWARD STREET.PHONE 39. the moral leadership of the world. Human Emotions During the diplomatic correspond "nee with Germany, he displayed many homely human emotions. On May 7, 191f>. when Mr. Wilson heard the news of the sinking of the Lusitania, he was almost at the end of h^s patience. Like a man making i last effort to avoid a quarrel with a wife who had just lgid on the last straw, he clapped on Jiis hat and i went out and walked around the block. He know how to give vent to his emotions on other occasions and has been known to say some thing stronger than “tut-tut" which has been accredited to him on hav ing made a faux pas at golf. How ever cold and austere he may have been accounted in his dealings with public men, those who have been privileged to view his family life from the inside of the circle testify that he is intensely human. * Washington now has a President and one of the .two living ex-Presi dents on its hands and offlciaidtJni is very much interested to see how it will work out. JOINT SESSION HELD IN HONOR OF NOME SOLON N. H. Castle Speaker at Me-; morial Service for Late E. W. Burroughs. "This is an occasion of solemnity and these services should not be and are nol merely perfunctory, but should and do constitute a trib uto of love and respect," declared N. H.

Address Is Sympathetic Mr. Castle spoke feelingly and sympathetically of the life and char acter of Mr. Burroughs and of his strength of character. “Though he had passed the allotted three score I years and ten," he said, “his en thusiasm was as fresh as that of a man many years his junior and. apart from the loss his friends have : sustained, I am firmly convinced that his taking off is a serious loss to the public who would have profit ed by his ripe experience, his ex quisite sense of justice and his loA1 of the Territory which, for a period of over 20 ye irs, has been his only home. “Whilo h i 3 nature was gentle, kindly and sympathetic, yet what lie championed was carried through with a courage born of a conviction of right and he never hesitated to contend for his principles and his ideals. The speaker reviewed his own association with the deceased, whom he declar^jl to be "a ‘man’s man’ ” whose friends were ids most valued possession. /'He found (treat delight in doing little acts of kindness and his charity was the truest of all charities, which gives, not from a I surplus, but at the cost of personal sacrifice.” I In conclusion Mr Castle said: “Charity, friendship, loyalty, in tegrity! Can a human leave be hind him a higher record? Does not such a man leave the world bet ter than he found it? What better monument can a man rear to his own memory ? Could-you or I ex ited a higher or more enduring one for ourselves? Is such, indeed, ’more enduring than bronze?’ ” Entered in the Journal At the conclusion, on motion of Mr. Cochran, seconded by Mr. Brown, liic address of Mr. Castle was or dered entered in the Journal of the House. The Memorial* Session opened shortly after 2 o’eloek. Gov Higgs, Speaker Norland, of the House, and President Sttndback of tbe Senate, occupied the platform in addition to Mr. Castle Rev. H. K.

BOAT DAMAGED; GOODS SPOILED BY BEING SUNK Officers Search Channel, Thinking Vessel Has Been Stolen from Moorings, Tlic thirty-foot gasboat Harry, under charter to George Rajnstead, of Cape Fanshaw, sank at her moor ing near the I'nion Machine Works some time last night and several hundred dollars worth of merchan dise. submerged in the salt water, is a total loss. Two gas boats, man ned l)y Federal end city peace offi cers. searched the Channel several hours this morning looking fdr the lost craft under the impression that it had been stolen. The sinking of the boat is ac counted for by the fact that near where it was moored was a ladder reaching from the top of the whart down almost to the bottom of the Channel. This ladder was broken off a short ways from the bottom and on the receding tide the boat wont drflvn lower than the end of it. When the tide came in the gun wale caught on the bottom and was held there while the water covered the boat completely. The next out going tide exposed the mast stick ing up out of the water. The boat will lie towed to the beach late today or tomorrow. PENNING FOUND GUILTY. It F Fenning and Kd.
