How a President and a King Will Pats'
the Holiday.«
President Roosevelt goes in for a
merry Christmas in the true spirit of
his Dutch ancestors. On that one day
in the year it is "business tomorrow"
with him, Secretary Loeb having order
to lay nothing before him short of an
open rebellion or a foreign invasion.
All official communications go to the
president's secretary, and the presi
dent will open nothing except person
al mail. The president observes the
religious side of Christmas, but on the
Sunday nearest the feast day. On
Christmas itself he has regard rather
for such homely joys as lie in the ma
terial aspect of the feast. From poep
o' day he is at the disposal of his
I children. Breakfast over, chaos reigns
I All save close friends are excluded.
I Ethel Roosevelt and her brothers take
j possession of the whole house. Me
chanical toys are strewn about' the
state drawing rooms and through the
j corridors. And the president himself
j heads the merry tribe bent on having
! a forenoon of fun with the tokens of
j Kris Kringle's esteem.
! On Christmas day the Roosevelts,
like all good Duteh folk, have the fam
ily dinner in the middle of the day.
of course, at 8 in the evening the ardi
tions of the White House are main
tained in the 8 o'clock banquet, to
which guests are invited formally.
But the real feast is served at 2
o'clock, when the turkey is borne on
whole, stuffed with oysters, and a
goose stuffed with potatoes Is set at
the other end of the table. This year
Senator and Mrs. Knox have supplied
both flowls from their farm near Val
le Forge. Mrs. Knox always send a
crate of Christmas good things to the
Roosevelts—home cured hams, nuts foy
the boys and the most delicate of
home-made butter. Neighbors of the
president at Oyster Bay forward mince
pies. All these gifts are used for the
children's feast, the event of the day.
This year all the children except
Archie and Quentin will be promoted
to seats at the 8 o'clock dinner, but thq
2 o'clock feast will be none the less
brilliant. Generally Admiral and Mr$.
William S. Cowles and their son. Wil
liam Sheffield Cowles, Jr., are at the
afternoon meal. Then there comes a
driver or horseback ride, with a visit
to Mrs. Cowles on the rteum trip.
The gifts the Roosevelts exchange
are stored in the library. For a weejjt
preceding Christmas the room. i$ V 'S^
Santa Claus headquarters, and the key
Is held by the faithful housekeeper,
Mrs. Leftwlch. The' key Is deliWWd
to the president on Christmas eve. and
It Is a ceremony when, accompanied
by all the family, he opens the treas
ure room on Christmas morning. This
year the gifts of Mrs. Longworth will
be sent to her home In Eighteenth
street, but she and her husband will
spend the greater part of the day In
the White House.
The king and queen of England will
spend the Yuletlde at Sandringham
and the ChriBtmas dinner will be
served with most of the traditional in
cidents. In the first week of January
the king and queên will be guests of
the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire
at Chatsworth. Several days will be
devoted to shooting and some theatri
cal performances are in preparation.
These will take the form of a bur
lesque and extravaganza, in which
Mrs. Willie James, Miss Muriel Wil
son, Lady Alington. Lord Duncannon
and probably Princess Henry of Pless
will join. In addition several variety
artists will be engaged to contribute to
the program.
At Chatsworth the old customs as
sociated with Christmas will be ob
served and the season made an occa
sion of a family reunion. The Christ
mas gifts form a gorgeous display not
soon forgotten. Not only is every
guest favored but the house staff and
the servants also are' pleasantly re
membered. The servants' hall Is cheer
ily decorated and a very jovial party of
wéll over, one hundred servants, keep
ers, stablemen, gardenerers, etc., sit
down to a dinner for workmen on the
estate. In the villages for several
miles around Chatsworth there are few
homes . that are not more or less de
pendent upon the duke for their means
of livelihood. These share in the ducal
bounty, while the poor also are able to
look forward* to a god Chistmas din
ner. The children of the villages are
Invited from each village In turn to
the great house.

BOISE, Dec. 21.—Two Interesting re- !
ports have been compiled by the office
force of the forest service at Boise
which were forwarded today to the
department at Washington—the fire
report for the season of 1906 and the
report of free use permits granted by
the rangers on duty, to the settlers.
In making up the first report the
fires were divided Into three classes—
A, B and C. The first are Incipient
camp fires which are easily subdued
by rangers patrolling the reserves;
the second, a larger fire, extinguished
without calling for help; the third,
serious fires requiring the employment
of help outside of tho service.
In the Payette reserve there were 36
fires of class A, 7 B, and 6 C. Causes
—Lightning, 17; unknown, 10; earless
ness and camp fires, 24. The total
area burned over, 2,664 acres; estima
ted timber destroyed, 4,876.000 feet;
approximate value, $3,725; cost of la
bor In extinguishing. $713.50; supplies
to firemen, $206.67. Total cost, includ
ing value of lumber destroyed, $4,
645.17. /
In the Sawtooth reserve there were
29 fires of class A; class B, 1; class
C, 5. Causes—Lightning 10, unknown
18, carelessness and camp fires 7. To
tal area burned over, 717 acres; esti
mated timber destroyed, 125,000 feet;
approximate value, $250; cost of labor
in extinguishing, $376.25; supplies to
firemen, $115.58. Total cost, including
vhlue of timber destroyed, $741.83. All
of the serious fires were caused by
Major Fenn recomlnends that a
larger force bo maintained on patrol
duty during the season, which would
result in materially reducing the de
struction of fires, enabling the service
to get to work before much territory
became Involved.
The report commends the efficient
service given by permit holders In the
reserves In assisting to extinguish fires
and refers to the fact that since the
reserves were created the destruction
from fires has been but a small per
centage of that obtaining when there
was no systematic protection.
Nearly all of the destruction was
caused by ground fires, which were
successfully combatted by back firing.
A few crown firs occurred In lodge
pole pine and Alpine fir, In the higher
Special Correspondence.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 21.—It will be
remembered that Congresman French
Introduced a bill in the house during
the last session of congress providing
for an appropriation of $25,000 for a
fish hatchery In Idaho. He received a
favorable report on his bill from the
committee on Merchant Marine and
Fisheries, to which it was referred,
but the rush of work in congress dur
ing the last session on account of the
many important matters, prevented
the bill from being considered.
However, as this is a part of the
same session of congress, the previous
report secured by Mr. Frefich is still
before the house, and it will not be
necessary for another bill to be In
troduced or another report secured to
entitle the bill to consideration at this
session of congress. Mr. French will
make an effort to have his bill passed
soon after the holidays, and says he
has good hopes of succeeding. The
people of Idaho are greatly interested
in stocking the rivers, streams and
lakes of the state with fish, says Mr.
French, and he has received a great
many requests for fish with which to
stock these streams. In all cases they
have been secured.
