TALK ABOUT BIG MEN. HOW MR. BLAINE RESENTED THE INTERFERENCE OF FRIENDS. A Word In Favor of the Newspaper Cor respondent — President Harrison and His Businesslike Ways—A Story of Ex- President Cleveland. •.Special Correspondence. | Washington, Sept. 14.—You will read a good deal in the papers about Mr. Ill,une's timidity when the state oi his health is threatening, how be quickly gives up and concludes that the worst is about to happen. This is often true of him. But I remember one occasion on which Mr. Blame displayed a wonderful amount of courage under most adverse circumstances. It was dur ing the canvass of 1884. Mr. Blame had been out campaigning for several weeks. He returned to New York, worn out and sick. He had barely strength enough re maining to attend a big meeting at Cooper institute that night and to review a mon ster procession. Then he was put to bed, not to get up, it was believed, for three or lour days. Mr. Blame was too sick to sleep, too sick to eat; and after a very bad night he met two or three of the campaign managers at hia bedside about noon. "Yon will have to rest for three or four days, Mr. Blame," said they, "and we have telegraphed to Philadelphia canceling your engagement there this evening, and will send some one else as a substitute. The people will be terribly disappointed, but under the circumstances nothing else could be done." "What right had you to do this without consulting me?" Mr. Blame demanded, partly raising himself up in bed and those big eyes of his flashing fire. "I deny your right to interfere with my plans without seeing me." "But, Mr. Blame, we"— the managers attempted to explain. "1 will listen to no apologies," retorted Mr. Blame. "The only thing that remains for you to do is to undo what you have done. Yon must wire the people in Phila delphia instantly that I will be with them tonight, according to my promise. Send for Mr. , as I want him to go to Phila delphia with me." "But, Mr. Blame, have you counted the cost? What does the doctor say?" "I don't care what the cost is or what the doctor says. Igo to Philadelphia this afternoon, if it kills me. I think 1 have the right to do as I please in this matter." The campaign managers saw that Mr. Blame was determined, and they had no alternative but to wire Philadelphia that the candidate would keep his engagement. Probably if they had consulted him before telegraphing in tbe first place, Mr. Blame would have been found only too glad to cancel the engagement. But his ire was aroused by being disposed of without hav ing a voice iv the matter himself, and in all probability be meant what he said, and that he would have gone to Philadelphia if it had killed him. He did go to Philadel phia, accompanied by an old friend. He reached the Continental hotel late in the afternoon in very bad condition. He had neither slept nor eaten for forty-eight hours. His traveling companion induced him to take an opiate, and fortunately this was followed by two hours of sleep. Then Mr. Blame ate a moderate sized. juicy beefsteak, and at 7:30 in the evening took his place at the reviewing stand, re maiuitig there for' nearly two hours in the open air on his feet, and afterward deliver ing a speech threo-quarters of an hour long. Perhaps this was the "best tiling that could have happened to Mr. Blame. His resentment, the effort, the Excitement probably saved him from it serious illness. But while be was in Philadelphia, review ing the processions and making a speech, the campaign managers in New York were wringing their bauds iv despair, expecting before morning to receive a telegram an nouncing the serious and possibly fatal illness of their candidate for the presi dency. When the newspapers a couple of months ago were printing dispatches from Bar Harbor to the effect that Mr. Blame was about to die, and Mr. Blame was perverse enough not to do anything of the sort, on the contrary, quickly recovering his health, tbe public said the newspapers were lying, that there was a conspiracy to "kill off Blame" in order to remove him from tbe list of candidates in 1893. Now, the facts, as I happen to know, are sufficient vindi cation of the good faith of the newspapers in that matter. People who sneer at news papers as willful circulators of falsehoods and participators in a conspiracy do not know anything about the,ne\vspaper busi ness. They do not know that the con- stant, the endless struggle among news paper workers is for the truth, and that the man who knowingly writes an untruth for publication has his head cut off as soon as his offense is discovered. Now, in this Blame matter, some of the best, most cautions aad careful newspaper correspondents in the country, then at Bar Harbor, believed Mr. Blame was dying. Tbe truth is, that there was one day in which Mr. Blame himself and tho members of his family believed the end was near. On that day—the worst "bad day" Mr. Blame has had for many years.—there was much weeping in the Stanwood Cottage. Mr. Blame's actual condition the corre- apondents could not arrive at, because uo one would give them information. But they did know that despair reigned in tbe household, that bitter tears were being shed, that the worst was feared. Under auch circumstances could the correspond ents be blamed for seuding out to the country that Mr. Blame was very sick and that hia death was feared? Fortunately, Mr. Blaineqnickly rallied. Hia "bad day" passed aa quickly as it came. On this occasion, us during the campaign of 1884, Mr. Blame's proud spirit seemed to have something to do with his rapid recov ery. He resented the summary manner in which the newspapers disposed of him, and the description wbioh one correspondent had given of Mr. Blame's failing mental powers roused bis ire to such an extent that he went to work to show the country as quickly and as conclusively as possible how erroneous the report* were. The peo ple of America, irrespective of party affil iation, rejoice most heartily over Mr. Blame's recovery, and if a counterirritant ' in the shape of a campaign committee or a newspaper correspondent is necessary to his well being, the people hope those influ ences will be always at baud. One finds among Republicans in all parts of the country an expectation that either Mr. Blame or General Harrison will be the party's candidate for president next year. While the president has not, of ' course, attained the phenomenal popular j ity enjoyed by Mr. Blame, the men who I have bad occasion to watch him closest tell me he has been a remarkable man in the presidential chair. For a man who keeps pretty well in his own hands the strings of government he has made surprisingly few mistakes. He has intrusted fewer details tp subordinates than most presidents, and that he has been able to handle ho much business with so few blunders is due to his exceptional perceptiveness. A prominent government official, tbe comptroller of the :reasary, Mr. Matthews, was giving me Me other day his estimate of the presl "l have had a good deal of experience nth men," said the comptroller, "with i wyers. Judges and sharp men of business kid attain. Bat X must say the keenest man I ever met is the president. If any one goes to him with a business of which he expects to hold something back, to cover a part of it up, or leave sometbiug misunderstood, he will quickly discover : that he has gone to the wrong man. In- Viiriiibly the president asks the very ques tion that the caller would prefer ire should not ask. If there is any one inquiry that will goat once to the bottom of the matter, opening it up all from the base, that is the ; very inquiry which t he president is sure to make. His quick comprehension, his in stant acuteness, his incisive inquiries are rather trying to the mau who has a little scheme to work and who had fondly hoped the president would take a good deal on faith. "But the president takes nothing on faith. He wants to put a large deep hole into ev ery subject that comes before him and let a flood of light in. I .suspect that if the president is unpopular among office seek ers, politicians and fellows of that class, as he is said to be, the reason is to be found in this way of bis of wanting to know ev erything and taking nothing on faith. I can easily see how this style Of doing busi ness might be unpleasant for the presi dent's callers, but it is the method which makes safe, clean work in the White House." I was told a couple of stories the other day which illustrates the contrast between the characters of Mr. Harrison and Mr. Cleveland. One of General Harrison's old friends from Indiana called at the White House to see him during business hours. He was admitted to the president's library, but after a minute's conversation was re minded that a dozen or more senators and representatives were awaiting an au dience. "Come some other time," said the president, "and I shall be glad to sit down and have a talk with you. Good day." This man was foolish enough to take of fense at the president's businesslike man ner, and returned to his home so angry that he has not yet gotten over it. -This shows the ease with which even a well meaning president may offend his friends. Tbe other story is of ex-President Cleve land, who while in tho White House was inclined togo to the other extreme. Mr. Cleveland was so fond of seeing his old friends and having a chat with them that he would incur the risk of offending public men iv order to do so. One day uot long after Mr. Cleveland's inauguration, Mr. C. E. Felton, superintendent of the house of correction of Chicago, called at the White House to see tho president, who had been an intimate friend of his in Buf falo. The anteroom was full of senators and representatives awaiting an audience. "You see how it is," said Lamont, "but if you aro an old friend I am sure the presi dent will be glad to see you for a minute." Felton and a friend accompanying him were ushered into the library, aud as they passed in, the waitingsenators frowned and muttered one to another. After a mo ment's conversation in the library the call ers turned to go, saying that they had se»n the statesmen waiting outside and they didn't want to interfere. "Never mind those senator*, out there," said Mr. Cleveland, taking his old friend by the shoulder and pushing him back into the from which he had risen. "1 can see them any day, and I don't get to see you once in a dog's age." "But the senators will be offended at see ing unimportant strangers like us come in ahead of them and have a long audience. There are twoof them going away now, as mad as wet hens, I'll bet." "That's all right," said Mr. Cleveland. "If they get angry they'll get over it, and if they go away hot they'll come back cool enough. Every one of those senators wants an office for bis constituents, and f'm so tired of senators and office hunting that I'm going to insist on you staying • half an hour. In accepting the presidency a man doesn't have to give up his old friends and the pleasure of their company, does he?" Robert Graves. THE BALTIMORE BONAPARTES. The Old Mansion Is Now the Property of Mr. Charles ISonaparte. [Special Correspondence.] Baltimore, Sept. 14.—The old Bona parte mansion is situated on tbe corner of Cathedral and Center streets in this city, and is an object of curious interest to all visitors. It is now the property of Mr. Charles Bonaparte, the grandson of Mme. Bonaparte. He was tlie favorite of his grandmother, and to him she left her enor tnous wealth, for in spite of tho fact that she lived in a hall bedroom in a boarding house, this eccentric woman was very rich. Mr. Charles Bonaparte is a lawyer, a genuine Frenchman, who speaks English quite brokenly. He served in the Franc • Prussian war, and is fond of Paris, spend ing much of his time in that gay city. At present he is abroad, and the beautiful old mansion, which suggests architecturally Ixith Arlington and Monticello, is closed. The story of Elizabeth Patterson, the beautiful Quakeress, who was the wife of Jerome Bonaparte for a time, who was repudiated by his family, and who lived out her restless life in her native city, is one of our national romances. Her por trait bangs in tho historical rooms of the Mercantile library in Baltimore, and shows her to have been a beauty. "She had the most wonderful hands and feet," said Lsabel MaJJou, the well known journalist, in Speaking of Mme. Bonaparte. "I recall her when I was a little girl and used to spend hours in the Mercantile libra ry poring over my favorite books. I used to see this slight little old lady flitting rest lessly about. One day she came up to me and asked, 'What are you reading, little girl?' I showed her my books and she t-aid she would select some for me, which she did. After that we used always to talk together, aud one of the pleasant memories of my childhood clusters about those whis pered conversations in the silent library. She took off her gloves and showed me her exquisite hands and told me that she slept with long thimbles ou her slim taper fingers. She described her wedding gown to me, saying it was of two widths of silk mull, with one mull petticoat worn beneath. She scorned tho idea that women were more healthy in those days, saying that in faerday women wore muslin gowns and satin slippers through the most rigorous winter weather. She also said that tho reason women have not as beauti ful necks, arms and shoulders in these days is because they cover them too much." Mme. Bonaparte is buried under a huge slab partly of polished aud partly of rough marble. Her name, "Elizabeth Patterson, wife of Jerome Bonaparte," aud the date of her death are inscribed, with this leg end, "After life's fitful fever she sleepg well." Edith Sessions Tupper.

The latest custom made dining tables have circular or oval tops instead of the square or oblong shapes that have held the floor so long. This departure is a very sensible revival of an old aud good fashion. In a square table one has akvays the awk ward corners to d ispose of, the legs being often a serious obstruction to the comfort of the unfortunate seated in proximity thereto. For real downright comfort noth ing can equal the old "pedestal" or "pillar and claw" table. Bedroom sets In birdseye maple seem to meet the prevailing demand for some thing light and brigbtsome. Iv rooms dec orated In light aud cheerful colors nothing can be more charming. Mexican mahogany of handsomely mark ed graiti, finished light, divides the honors with the maple. The newest patterns will be in the Adam style, extremely neat and chaste in design, with carving in very low relief, and panels bordered with small classic beading. The taste is becoming more decided for a little quiet cawing nicely executed, rather than a mass of coarsely executed so called "antique" dec orations. For those who do not require to study the "economics," some sets in white aud cream and gold will llud appreciation. These are in the style of Louis XIV and XT, modified somewhat to conform with present requirements. Decoratorand Furuisbernells, besides the foregoing, of a ver3" handsome set, consist ing of bedstead, chiffonier, dressing table, writing table and screen, now being made in l-iouis Qttatorze style, in cream enamel and gold, with panels of painted tapestry in the head and footboards. Belp for the Tired. With such a simple arrangement iv the kitchen as tbe following, illustrated and described In Rural New Yorker, the tired wife may have all the water she wants at a moment's notice, without the necessity of going out of doors or any overexertion by carrying it. A zinc lined box is mounted on heavy brackets at the top of the kitchen, or, still better, on the floor of the attic. The heavy pipe shown leads from a spring or well into it, or it may be made very large in the uttic and supplied from the eaves. If the well be depended upon a forco pump wilj A nOMF.MADF. KITCHEN TANK, be needed. When water has risen in the box to a certain level it flows out of the surplus pipe shown. The pipe running to the sink comes out of the bottom of the box and can drain off all the water it holds, vr/hen it will at once fill again. On a large scale, supplying the whole house, the plan is an excellent but costly one. To fix for the kitchen alone issimple and attended with little expense. A five gallon can iv which castor oil came can be bought at a drug store for ten cents. The housewife will gladly wash it clean. Then a little work, a few feet of galvanized pipe and joints and a borrowed pipe wrench will complete a job which may save a doc tor's or an undertaker's bill and the most precious member of any American home. Tomato Pickle and Sauce. Sweet Tomato Pickle — Peel and Blice seven pounds of ripe tomatoes, with threo and one-half pounds of sugar, one ounce of cinnamon and mace, one ounce of cloves and one quart of vinegar, and stew all to gether for one hour. French Pickle—Mix one peck of greeD tomatoes, sliced, with six large onions, sliced, throw 0%-er them one teacupful of salt and let them stand a night. Drain them the next day and boil iv one quart of vinegar and two quarts of water for fifteen minutes, then drain. Take four quarts of vinegar, two pounds of brown sugar, one half pound white mustard seed, two table spoonfuls each of ground allspice, cinna mon, cloves, ginger and ground mustard; mix all together and boil fifteen minutes. Chili Sauce—Cook together the follow ing ingredients for three hours, then bottle it like catsup: Eighteen ripe tomatoes, three green peppers, one cupful of sugar, two teaspoonfuls of salt, one teaspoonful each of several kinds of spices, two and one-half cupfuis of vinegar. It makes a very nice sauce. Watering; Hanging Baskets. Whether In the conservatory, green house or open piazza, hanging baskets will be found to take a considerable supply of water where a good growth has been made. Nonattention to this is a frequent source of failure, the plants, whatever they may be, assuming a sickly appearance if not regularly attended to. tn the cane of any which are found to dry up rapidly it ia a good plan to water them in the evening and then again in the morning. If tbe soil has been partly washed away, a alight top dressing would be a considerable assist ance. All decaying foliage and flowers should be kept removed, tbe position occu pied by the flowers being one where such things are brought into prominent notice. Syringing the under sidesof tbe basket ia a good plan to follow tn hot weather. Arrowroot and Aln mod Podding. Blanch and pound one ounce of sweet almonds with six or seven bitter ones, and when it is a smooth paste put them in a saucepan with half a pint of new milk aud bring it slowly to the boil. Mix two tablespoonfuls of beat arrowroot smoothly with a wineglassful of cold milk, and on this pour the boilirsg milk, stirring It sharply till thoroughly mixed, then add two ounces fresh butter and two v ?ell beaten eggs and stir till the mixture is quite oooL Pour it Into a lightly oiled mold and serve with brandy sauce.
