; My first thought when I start
ed ito write j this article was | that
you would like to know how Mrs.
Theodore Roosevelt > looks. ;*.*- ■_; •' •
Well, - I must . nay • that, she ,ts
hard to describe. She is slender,

Her eyes are blue, and her
mouth most sensitive; tt reveals
her every thought almost before
she speaks.
Mrs. Roosevelt is not one or
those women who take them
selres too seriously. She smiles
often and has a great sense of
humor; indeed, one of her fads
is collecting nonsense rhymes,
and she laughs heartily over
many that have the colonel as
their subject.
The progressive candidate's
wife is noted for her splendid ex
ecutive ability. The dispatches
have told you how she brought
order in the colonel's room at
Mercy hospital and how she soon
established her own absolute rule
where only the stricken victim's
impetuous will ruled before.
At" Sagamore hill, she is mana
ger In the full sense of the word
because she consider* it the duty
of a wife and mother to be the
home keeper, absolutely.
For hundreds of years the for
bears of Edith Kermlt Roosevelt
have been people of means and
used to being waited upon. Those
who work for them, live with
them until they are past service
and then are pensioned. At the
Sagamore Hill home most of the
service is performed by colored
people who simply adore Its mis
tress —and well they may, as sne
is as careful of their rights as of
her own.
In my recent visit there I left
my coat upstairs and when I was
leaving, Mrs. Roosevelt said, as
quite a mattor of course:
"Ethel, go up and get Mrs.
Glbsdn's coat."
In a moment Mies Ethel was
helping me on with the wrap. It's
a very little Incident, but It points
to the simplicity and sincere hos
pitality of the Roosevelt family
and the absolute democratic spir
it which prevails among them.
Mrs. Roosevelt never speaks of
the "plain" people nor the "com
mon" people, but you feel when
talking to her that you and she
are one with all the great human
family.
Highly educated, she was able,
