HIS FIRST THOUGHT
-• President McKinley's Devotion to His ; Invalid Wife. In the early days of the Spanish war i Mr. McKinley and Mark Hanna were j engaged in a close and serious evening conference In the president's room. The time ran along to the hour of 9. Suddenly those busy In the outer room saw President McKinley rise and leave the apartment, saying, "Walt a few mo ments, Mark." He was gone about twenty minutes. In the meantime Sen ator Hanna walked restlessly between the two rooms, speaking a word or two to the secretaries and showing plainly that he shared with the president a feeling of deep anxiety as to the out come of the military proceedings. He remarked on the fact of great shortage of supplies and from his words and bearing revealed to the assembled few In that outer room that the president end his closest advisers were lying awake nights and working to make up for the deficiencies of the military situ ation. When the president returned he and Senator Hanna resumed their anxious consultation. Then the president's sec retary remarked to one who was near him: "I suppose you wonder why Presi dent McKinley got up so suddenly and left without a word to any one. You saw how anxious he was about the military situation. Even that would not cause him to break away from what has come to be the custom of bis early evening. "About the same time every night, when he hears a signal from the other side, he knows that Mrs. McKinley Is ready to retire and wishes to see him No matter how busy he may be nor how deeply engaged In any subject, he Invariably drops everything on the In stant and goes to their own apart ments. There he sits by the bedside and reads a chapter in the Bible to Mrs. McKinley. Then he waits a few moments until she is quiet, tiptoes back to the door, comes over here to the of fice and without a word takes up the thread of his work and keeps it np un til toward midnight"—Chicago Trib une. Only One Sea Power. In the audacity of puny triumphs nations are called sea powers, but there Is only one sea power, and that Is the sea itself. "Far famed our na vies melt away." Within a hundred yards of the best charted shore stout ships are as bubbles. That sea that Is as familiar when calm to little boats and ferries and tugs as are the thor oughfares of a city to its crowd of humanity takes on all the aspect of chaotic terror when windB and storms prevail. The waters so close as to re fleet the friendly lights of the great metropolis are as alien to the forces of men as are the depths of the farthest ocean.
