Sept. IS. Delving into the mine of ISO.MO letters which Theodore Roosevelt wrote during hlf public career, Joseph Bucklln Bishop, the colonel's biographer, in the Octo ber issue of Scribner's magazine, brings to light a number of "gems in the Intimate correspondence between the former president of the United Sta'es and Sir George Otto Trevelyan, Bart, O. M.. English statesman and author, with whom the great Ameri can enjoyed a rare friendship covering 20 veara. Mr. Bishop's paper, the second of the series, entitled "Roosevelt and Trevelyan." reveals the many sided Roosevelt as "an insatiable reader of books," his warm sympathy for authors and his broad and profound knowledge of ancient and modern lit erature. Even amid the cares of the presidency. Mr. Roosevelt, it is shown, maintained a regular correspondence with leaders of literary and intellec tual life both in this country and Europe. In Sir George Trevelyan, nephew of the historian Macauley, he found a man singularly responsive to bis own intellectual tastes and icnowi- I .de-e. The correspondence began when he was governor of New York and con j tinued until a few months before Mr. Roosevelt's death. "Wished to Be Real president. "I certainly would not be willine to hold the presidency at the cost of failing to do the things which makes the real reason why I care to hold it at all,", he w rote to Sir George on May 28, 1904. "I had much rather be a real president for three years and a half than a figurehead for seven years and a half. 1 think I can truthfully say that I now have to my credit a sum of substantial achievement and the rest must take care of itself." Previously, in 1899. Trevelyan had ent governor Roosevelt a copy of the first part of his history, "The Ameri can Revolution," which made a deep Impression on its recipient and which I he praised for "its interest, delightful ' humor, absolute falrmindedness and' exactness of narrative." an opinion I which was shared by senator Lodge ; and Elinu Root, both of w horn later j joined with-Roosevelt in buying a sil ver lovincr cup and sending -it to Sir, George as a token of their apprecia- Hon.

The books that made the president, happy covered a remarkable range, ! history, fiction, philosophy, travel, zo- i logy, ornithology, anthropology, re- lurlon ana art. and he said tney gave him ease and relaxation he could get ; in no other way, not even on horse back!"

Some of them are here reproduced for the first time in any newspaper: A ereat. free people owes it to Itself and to mankind not to sink into helplessness before the powers of evlL" 'Unfortunately for us, small men do most of the historic teaching m the colleges.

After referring to them in terms of affec tion and that he would not for any thing "have them anywhere else. he concluded: I fear we would welcome their return home, each with an arm or a leg off. so that they could feel that they had played their parts man fully and yet we could nave them back! 72-Year-Old Hubby Is Not Lazy, Says Judge Indianapolis, IndL, Sept. 25.
