Mexico's White House
President Diaz has tnovtd his official resi?
dence out to (bo ca-.tle of ChapultepeC'
which becomes once more, for the first time
since the unlucky Maximiliau and his
charruicg wife lived there, the "white house''
Cbapultepec h one of the loveliest spots
imaginable, tsccurdiug to the Ooiaba lice. It
Is unique in itself, as well as iu its name,
''the hill o! the grasshopper."
Moultzama made biii summer house hero,
and au underground passage still in exist?
ence was made by bis directiou to a point in
the valley below, so that the Aztec chieftain
could go acd come as he pleased. Under
tbe old cypress trees in the park the con?
queror Cortez pitched his tent after the cele?
brated "Noche Triste," or night of sorrow,
when the Aztecs fell upon the Spaniards and
Here Maximilian and the unfortunate
Carlotta made love as they promenaded the
magnificent murnle terraces, which were
built by order of tut- Austrian grand duke.
Here the American army fougbt a bloody
but decisive battle?one which has made tbe
queer word Chapuliepec familiar to Ameri?
can ears. One might rdale numberless his?
torical incideuts connected with the epot,
which abounds in memories, if space per?
mit ted, but tbe place itself demands some
Imagine a , park of 1.00U acres covered
I with a denss urowth ot cypres?, many of tbe
treee 500 or 000 years old. The gray Span?
ish moss, festooned from limb to limb, adds
to tho picturesqueness of the scene. In the
center of this park, which is surrounded by
massive walls on three Bides, tbe old eque
duct forming a barrier on tbe fi urtb, rises
a precipitous mound, if such a term will ex?
press tbe idea. This mound is composed
principally of rook, and is probably 200 feet
in height. There is but one road to the top,
the summit being inaccessible except by
this single ronte.
Upon the very apex stand? the castie,
completely covering the space so that no
matter from which direction you look there
is a sheer descent of nearly one hundred feet.
The castle was built in sections, and presents
no singular feature of architecture except a
peculiar double staircase that seems to have
no supports. When Maxmilan first saw tho
staircase he remarked to the architect that
be would not trust his weight upon it,
whereupon the designer, wiih his majesty's
permission, brought a regiment of soldiers
and marched them up and down tbe stair?
way ten abreast, thus demonstrating its
strength. The staircase is the only one of
its kind in existence, and is built of white
marble and brass.
The terraces at Cbapultepec are one of
the sights of Mexico. They are floored with
white marble, with brass balustrades, and
lighted by electricity. Tbo upper terrace
extends the entire distance around the cas?
tle and is 24 fee", broad. Lovely little flower
gardens are located at frequent intervals,
and here ate blooming geraniums, fuchsias,
heliotrope and mignonette, making the air
neb with perfume and adding to the bright?
ness of tbe ecene.
The furnishing of the castle for the recep?
tion of President Diaz has been very elabor
ate. Tbe private apartments are in tbo
northwestern wing. Eich room is frescoed
appropriately. Tbe chess room has a chess
room in the centre of tbe ceiling with tbe
Dishops, kings and queens in a merry dance
about it, the pawns furnishing appropriate
music from the four corners of the room.
The private reception parlor of the Presi?
dent's wife is "done up" in pink silk, with
plush and brocade hangings to match.
Every wall in the entire suit of rooms is
covered with silk brocade instead of paper.
The bed room occupied by the President
and his wife was decorated and furnished at
an expense of $30,000. The dining room has a
seating capacity that is. limited to thirty
persons. The magnificent solid silver that
ouce belonged to the Emperor Maxmi??u
is to be used, but the china and glassware
ar?- not in keeping with the royal magnifi
c-nc- of the silver ; ODe of the soup tureen?
r- qui:es four men to carry it when filled.
Piesident Dioz is greatiy loved by his fol?
lowers, and he will doubtless make the cas
ile of Ch .pultepeo quite as brilliant as it
was iu tue days when tbe Austrian and Em
preea Carlotta drove their eight gray horses
and golden state chariot up the bill, and
made the castle ring from alcove to gallery,
from garrison to the entrance gates, with
gayety. lime. Diaz is a most brilliant
woman, aud can entertain royalty should
she take the notion. All Mexico has its
eyes upon her, and it remains with her to
add immeasurably to the gayeties of tbe
On Thanksgiving Day. November 2Sth, 3899,
the ladies in charge of the Alexandria Infirmary
will bo in attendance at tho Infirmary daring the
d;iy from 9 a. m. to 9 p. m. to receive the friends
of the institution and such donations as they may
bring or may be sont.
We hope it will be remembered that on this,
tho annual donation day of the Infirmary, sup?
plies for the year in table and bed linen, blankets
and othor household articles, groceries and com?
forts of ovory kind, such as our sick need, and
can only thus obtain, are looked for and hitherto
have been received. In fsct, the support of the
insti:ution for the remaining weeks of the year
has always been, and is now, depeudent on tho
amount of money and other supplies sent on the
Thanksgiving donation day.
We ask much from the rich; Romething,more or
less, from all, and that every merchant of our city
will remember tho various needs of such an insti
tion and will spire us something from his stock.
We ask also an interest and porsonal attendance
from the ministers of the churches, the trustees
of tho Alexandria Infirmary, the Ministering
Children's League and the varions societies which
are so earnestly laboring for these, the sick and
suffering poor of our city. A. J.
