His Pony Was Taken Up in Elevator
^ to Bedside.
Archie Roosevelt, who is recovering
from an aNSmr of measles, had a
visitor the other day, whose call will
do more to restore him to health than
all the medicine the doctor can give
him. Soon after Archie began to con
valesce he begged»-to be allowed to
see his spotted pony, Algonqutn,
which is his constant companion when
he is well. It was too soon for Archie
to leave his room and Mrs. Roosevelt
was compelled to decline the request.
Charles, the groom, who looks after
Algonquin, thought the matter ovér
and concluded that if Archie wqpted
to see his pony he should do so.
Without confiding his plans to any
one, he led the pony the other day
into the White House and along the
corridor into the elevator. When the
second floor was reached, Charles led
the pony into Archie's room. Archie
was delighted. This is thé first time
that a horse has ridden la a White
House elevator.
Precaution Was Timely.
The secretary of the interior is be
ginning to receive reports da the sus
pension of timber and stone land en
tiles in California, Oregon and Wash
ington, and so far they go to confirm
the wisdom of the order of suspen
sion which was made last fall. There
is a thorough conviction on the pari
of officials of the interior 'MMu-tment
that many if not most of thöen tries
under the timber land act which were
made in the Pacific coast states dur
ing the year 1902 were made in the in
terest of syndicates, and the gsptestB
received since the issuance of tne or
der strengthen this conviction. Since
then not a single entry in the states
covered by the order has been al
lowed to go to patent without thoi
ough investigation. There are many
special agents in that field, and^lhe
order requiring compulsory attendance
of witnesses in connection with land
entry is expected to prove of great
assistance to them in establishing the
validity or lack of validity of all sutti
entries. ^
