It was modeled after an Irish country seat near Dublin and the architect got $500 for for drawing the plans. When first erected, only $300,000 was expended on it, and in that form it was nearly destroyed by tho British in 1SJ4. All the 'Presi dents since Washington have lived there, and each has made some alterations and additions.

Becky Jones, the obstinate wit ness in a will case in Xew York, has gained the victory at last.
