No children In Washington last night
were more in the dirk or more curious
rcgirdlng the presents the will receive
this morning tlnn the element
of the Roosevelt famil Six stockings
were hung from the mantel In the lnll
and six very curious oung persons will
arise very early this morning to find out
what they have received for Christmas
The President and Mrs Roosevelt se
lected tho gifts ctrcfully and were wary
lest the children should gain an inkling
of what they were to rerclvc
The White House will sec a merrier
celebrstlon of Christtms today than It
has for many years for there have never
b cn so mnnv lively oung folks in the
old mansion for a long time The ex
uberance of the oungsters esterday
could hardly be restrained and it will
probably be redoubled today alter they
havo received their Christmas remem
Icrlilit to litis c n Tree
There wli bccno Christmas tree at the
White House as the Roosevelt chldrcn
do not care for Christmas tree The
have never had one at the Yulctlde cele
bration and the President has rather a
partiality for the customs of Holland
anJ the Hollanders
The attaches at the White House were
rather disappointed when they learned
that there would be no tree TLcy had
supposed that with so manr ehlldrej the
tree would be Indispensable
The President will spend the day as
quietly as possible with so many chil
dren In the liouse In the morning he
will receive a gift from each member of
the family The gifts will not for tho
most part be expensive for the children
have been required to purchase them from
tbelr regular allowances and each has
selected something which he thinks will
cspeclall please the father
Mrs Roosevelt of course will receive
a remembrance from cacti one as also
will iilss Emily Carew Mrs Roosevelt 3
sister who Is visiting In AVAshlngtou
IVstlt lllrs nt 11 r Ionic
During the morning the President will
attend divine service at Graeo Dutch Re
formed Church on Fifteenth Street north
west He will probably be accompanied
b one or two members of the family
In the afternoon the White House chil
dren will go to tho home of Comman ler
and Mrs Cowles where they will receive
more presents and where a pretty Christ
mas tree will be lighted
The Christmas dinner will be served at
the usual hour In the evening to which a
number of friends have been Invited to
share the repast and the rest of the
evening will be spent In games and music

The attaches and servants at the White
House were presented with Christmas re
membrancer estcrday Large fat tur
keys were offered to the married men
while the single men were the recipients
of gloves and handkerchiefs The Presi
dent made tho rounds personally jestcr
day nfternoon and handed out tho gilts
himself expressing the wish that the re
cipient would have a very very merry
It has always been the custom of all of
the Presidents to remember the servants
at the Feason oh general festivity and
eight -seven tnrloevs werp required to
provide all the married men this year
Thero was an almost continuous rattle
of express wngon wheels on the driveway
In front of the White Houfc nil da jes
tcrda Uniformed messengprs passed
frequently In through the portals bearing
in their arms large packages addressed to
the President or to Sirs Roosevelt the
remembrances of friends all over the
United States ijlie jifts the President
will receive will run Into tho hundreds
their value into thousands of dollars

Among these presents were a number
from several Rough Riders cx racmbcrs
of tho Presidents old regiment some of
whom have not failed to send him a gift
since that famous command was mustered
out of service There are few places
where the President has been In the

brought directl in contact with the affected parts through the tubes of the lungs
and results are vecurrd In the treatment of Consumption Bronchitis Catarrh and
Asthma which never were and never could bo accomplished b the old vva of
