Yet he rote to his children in the same old jubilant tone. x A Whits House Christmas To Master James A. Garfield, Wash ington? 4 flmmiklns: Among all the presents I got I don't think ' there was one I appreciated more than yours; for I was .brought up to admire and respect your grand father, and I have a very great fond ness and esteem for your father. It ilways seems to me that you children are being brought up in the same way mine are. Yesterday Archie got among his presents a small rifle from me and a pair of riding boots from his mother. He won't be able o use the rifle until next summer, but he has gone off very happy in the riding boots for a ride on the calico pony Algonquin, the one you rode the other day. Yester day morning at a quarter of seven all the children were- up and dressed and began to hammer at the door of their mother's and my room, in which their six stockings, all bulging out with nueer angles and routundities, were hanging from the fireplace. So their mother and I got up shut the window, lit the fire, taking down the stockings, of course, put on our wrappers and prepared to meet the children. But first there was a surprise for me, also "A , sssssmbjsss hi ii'a Amanh . ) I is his smok 1 L llli J1 and the blend CSc'-m 20 for 20 cents can't be copied A by osepK COPVI?!HX.

There was also one present each for Jack, the dog, Tom Quarts, the kitten, and Algonquin the pony, whom Archie would no more think of neglecting than I would neglect his brothers and sisters. Then all the children came Into our bedroom and there they opened their stockings. Afterwards we- got dressed and took our ,- break fast, and then we all went into the li brary, where each child had a table set , for. his bigger presents. Quentin had a perfectly delightful electric rail road, which had been rigged up for him by one of his friends, the White House electrician, who has been very good to all the' children. , Tnen Ted and I, with General Wood and Mr. Bob Fer guson who wag a lieutenant in my regiment, went for a three hours' ride; and all of us, including the children, took lunch at the house with the children's aunt, Mrs Captain Cowles Archie and Queitin having their lunch at a little table with their cousin Sheffield. Late xn the after noon I played at single -stick with General Wood and Mr. Ferguson. I am going to get your father to come on and try It soon. We have to try to hit as light as possible, Tut sometimes we hit hard, and today I have a bump over one eye and a swollen wrist. Then all our family and kinsfolk and Senator and Mrs. Lodge had our Christmas dinner at the White House, and afterwards danced in the JEla,st room, closing up with the Virginia reeL Tom Quartz, and Jack. White House, Jan. 6, 1903. Dear Kermit: We felt very melancholy after you party? Count me in" -Ches. Field GOOD company, anytime Chesterfield. And here's why. The finest tobaccos of the United States and the best Turkish , districts are used in Chesterfield cigarettes. These tobaccos are bought and blended by men who know how who have back of them the knowledge that only years of training and experience can give. New qualities of flavor are brought out by the Chesterfield blend. In fact, Chesterfields show the hand of the expert all the way through. That's why they make your smoking mean. something. That's why they ''Satisfy!1 Even the moisture-proof package is dis tinctive. And the blend can't be copied! So if you want t'Satisfy"get Chesterfields. 11 J. PQsevetts HisChildren Bucldin Bishop and Ted left and the nouse seemed empty and lonely. but it was the greatest possible comfort to feej that both really have enjoyed school and are both doing well there. Tom Quartz is certainly the cun ningest kitten I have ever seen. He Is always playing pranks on Jack and I got very nervous lest Jack should grow too irritated. The other evening they were both in me library Jack sleepihg before the f :re Tom Quartz scampering about, " an exceedingly playful little wild . creature which is about what he is. He would race across the faor, then jump upon the curtain or play, with the tassel. Sud denly he spied Jack and galloped up to him. Jack, looking exceedingly sul len and shame-faced, jumped out of the way and got upon the sofa, where Tom Quartz instantly jumped upon again. Jack suddenly shifted to the other sofa, where Tom Quartz again went after him. Then Jack started for the door, while Tom made a rapid turn under the sofa and around the table, and just as Jack reached the door leaped 11 pen his hind-quarters. Jack bounded forward and away the two went tandem out of tho room Jack not reappearing at all; and after about five minutes .Tom Quartz stalked solemnly back. Another evening the next speaker of the house, Mr. Cannon, an exceedingly solemn elderly gentleman with chin whiskers, who certainly does not look to be of playful nature, came to call upon me. He is a great friend of mine and we sat talking .over what our policies for the next. session should be until about eleven o'clock; and when he went away I accompanied him to the head of the stairs. He had gone about half way down when Tom Quartz strolled by, his tall erect and very fluffy. He spied Mr. Cannon go ing down the stairs, jumped to the conclusion that he was a playmate es caping, andraeed after him, suddenly grasping him by the leg the way he does Archie and Quentin when they play hide and J seek with him; then loosening his hold he tore down stairs ahead of Mr. Cannon, who eyed him him with iron calm and not one par ticle of surprise. Ethel has reluctantly gone back to boarding school. It is just after lunch and Dulany is cutting my hair while I dictate this to Mr. Loeb. I left mother lying on the sofa and reading aloud to Guentin, who as usual has hung him self over the back of the sofa in what I should personally regard as an ex- ceedingly uncomfortable attitude to listen to' lit&rature. Archie we. shall 'not see until this evening, when he .will suddenly challenge me either to a jrace or a bear play, anj if neither in jvitation is accepted will then Propose that I tell a pig story or else read aloud from the Norse folk tales.
