-75 n-iyr Pf i SP-WB(TT9 "Wrt ." ' ,T i"f"ii5," w THE CHICAGO EAGLE, C aew PttOMgPLE" REPRESENTATIVE JOHNSON'S BIG DISTRICT - around, because he's very standpat. Taking a header Into statistics, Johnson's district comprises more than 20,000 square miles, an area as big as that of half Ohio and equaling tho ter ritory of thrco or four New England states. It Includes the Olympic penin sula, which takes In tho big -city of Tncoma and a good part of southwest Washington. Hqwover, out of all tho territory that Johnson embellishes In Washington, one-third Is In forest reserve; nnd the lands held by tho government cut up tho country so that nt the last election it took a week to get all the returns assembled, as against an average of around thirty -six hours for tho run of the congressional districts the country over. Likewise, owing to tho ubtqultousness of forest reserves, Johnson had to make uIb campaign by nearly overy form of land or water transportation there was. He stumped from trolley, auto, canoe, railroad train, horseback, wagon, steamer and ship. Hence, all tho foregoing considered, It may be assumed that Johnson Is some unlquo congressman. MRS. AVA WILLING Mrs. Ava Willing Astor is In Lon-, don again looking younger and more festive thnn over. Sho is wearing charmlni- neutral tints, presumably for the Into millionaire, her divorced Iiuiband. who went down in the Ti tanic. It l considered very good Cute on tlie part of Mrs. Astor to do t!i!o, for tliTP wore very few women vhc would have mnrked that sad r'Tnt In t!io circumstances. Those v he knew her boot, however, say that ;n 'it licnrt of hearts sho was very Tond of the dead man, though after tlin divorce sho tried to hide tho fact that her pride whs to wounded. Like n few other smart Ameri cans In town sho went promptly to see tho Connaughts, but it appoars she got further than tho rest, as sh was admitted to tho bedroom of tho duchess. Thoro is tho arcatest ex citement as to whether her von, Vin cent, will put in appearance here this summer. It Is said his mother has a very charming little maiden of great distinction In her oyo f6r him, as she is pining for him to marry a Drltlsh girl of title. Ho Is reputed very difficult to manage and docs not wucomo any interference with his matrimonial affairs at least, so says his mother, who admits to having her hands full in regard to his future. Frankly, sho sayB she will have no real happiness until she sees him settled down (satisfactorily out of the roach of fortune hunters. Mrs. Astor tins received n promlso from tk Connaughts that the family will dine witb her.

By chance a log, which was drifting ahead of them, snagged in the piles or a brldgo and the boat Jammed against it, holding thorn secure till persons on tho brldgo above dropped a ropo by which they were rescued. So Senator Thompson is a firm believer In his "star" of fate being a lucky one. MRS. HOUSTON, WOMAN OF DISTINCTION Airs. David Franklin Houston, tnll and splendidly proportioned, thp wife of tho secretury of ngrlculturo, is ono of tho mont improsBlvo-looUIng womon in tho new circle of executive hoBtcfises In Washington. A natlvo of Texas, sho seems to breatho tho spirit of the great land of tho Rio Grande, and she has many claims 'to distinc tion. "Although my husband has lived in muuy states," bald Mrs. Houston the other day, "my llfo has not been so varied. Austin, tho capital of Texas, Is my birthplace. I was map rlod there nnd remained until five years ago, when we wont to 8t. Louis. University llfo Is an excellent train ing for Goclnl duties, no matter how wide the scope, and I feel familiar in my present environment, though this Is my first residence in Washington. In Austin and In St. Louis our faculty life was filled with pleasant evontu And we had to plan our days carefully to fit In all that was requisite. I see It Is much the same thing here and I anticipate keen enjoyment when I am entirely accustomed to the routine." Mrs. Houston, though regretful at spoiling a pretty romance, Is the authority for the statemont that she never studied under her husband at the University of Texas. The tale went that as a most brilliant student she, attracted the attention of the professor of English literature and history, ome time later chancellor of the Washington university, St. Louis, and now ! secretary of agriculture. ThU admiration soon ripened into something1 greater. Mrs. Houston says that hor husband came to the Austin seat ot 'learning after uno had graduated, and that, as he had the reputation of being a stern disciplinarian, It was perhaps as well for the success of tho little Mind god that events transpired as they did. She met him in general aocioty, when he presented a less severo aspect, and their mutual love of philosophy and of. literature was the first attraction. Representative Albert Johnson, th nowly elocted representative from the Second district of Washington, has more coast line to look after than any other man in congress. It Is laved, or whatever tho word Is, by tho waters cf tho Columbia river, the Straits of Fuca, tho Pacific ocean nnd Puget sound to the aggregato of 1,000 miles; and the Job of maclng light houses, rovenue cutters and so on out of congress for that tubful of dr'nk Is some Job, bcllovo Johnson. Other natural wonders in the Johnson district Include two forest reserves, tho Olympla and the Hal nler, the latter flook of segregated lumber coming in only in part. In tho heart of tho Olympla reserve Is a national monument created for tho protection of the Roosevelt elk, or, as the highbrows put it, tho cervus Roosoveltus. Yes, of course, they're named after T. R. You have to .whis per this, though, when Johnson's AST0R IN LONDON Tho now senator from Kansas, William H. Thompson, is one of the youngest-looking men in congress, and any one not familiar with his faco might think him his own secre tary. With an almost boyish face the senator combines a happy disposition and that raro quality which Is sup posed to belong exclusively to the femlnino sex Intuition. He tells himself of many romark ablo events in which he has on sev eral occasions had narrow escapes from fatal accidents. Once, when traveling with his family, he was de- talned in a small town which boasted of a frame hotel. Mr. Thompson felt that such a building was unsafe, hired an auto, drovo his family forty miles home and that very night the hotel was burned to the ground. Another time he was boating with his wife on Yellowstone lake, when the boat caught in tho strong current and was rapidly floating toward tht mWmmmwmmzM saVaVHb v s a V,r mmWt'mE3r$A' 1 aTaTaTaK. aTaaaPL .. saaaaaabklT o ;: eaaaaaBFOv t vSBBBlkv r -, . i a syjpjpjMpi HHHHV SkBkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkHHHkH kVBBBBka, f ' i JBkMBttrv v1BPnlB H ' ' f ?
