House. A HOLIDAY FOR THE PRESIDENT. He Will Enjoy a Family Dinner and an Old-Fashioned Tea by Candlelight. Perfcctins Arrangements for the RMtp . tidii Now Yaar'a- liny Mn. Uarrlion Will Not Anlit tha President in Ke-celTlnc-Tho Coontess Ol Montercola '1 Ita the National CpUf. Washington, Dec. 23. Mrs. Harrison ba1leen in despair for several days tryirijj io "get the President long enough in a family council to arrange not only the Christmas plans but the dates for the official hospitalities of the coming season. They no sooner begin to dis cuss the subject than he is called away to some urgent business at bis . desk. Christmas Day will he a quiet one, however, with the White Bouse family. For the first time in the past two decades there is to be a Christmas - tree at the White House. A fair share of the holiday preparations of 'Mrs. Har rison and Mrs. McKee - is the .thought they have given to its details, the past few days. It; was only yesterday they decided that Benjamin Harrison McKee should. enjoy his first Christmas tree and air its attendant, festivities. The next thought was -where to locate the tree so that its decoration could bo accomplished without the little fellow- knowing anything about it. Mrs. McKee decided to have it in' the Blue ChamJeri; which is at present unoc cupied.' It used to be President Arthur's bedroom, and was fixed up, in the autumn by new wall paper on the side walls and a general brushing up. ' - i . . . - -v i The;,private appartments up stairs will be liberally decked with Christmas greens and holly. The President will make it a holiday from his desk and give more than his usual holiday atten tion to the babies. There will be a family dinner at about 2 o'clock and an old fashioned tea by candlelight. The household will not be much increased from what.it is at present, excepting that Major -and Mi's: Parker and Mrs. Dimmick, the two ladies, daughters of the late Mrs. Lord, will spend the day. Mr. Russell Harrison expects to spend the holidays wath his wife out in Omaha, as the latter does not intend to come here until later in the gay season. Mrs. McKee's mother-in-law, who is a guest at the White House, will re turn to her Indianapolis homo before Christmas, and 15aby McKee's father, owing to a stress of business, will not bo able to join his family at the White House. - ' CThQ, arrangements for the reception on Kew Xe"ar's Day are not essentially different from other years. Mrs. Har rison, howeA'er, will not assist the Pres ident that day in receiving, but will be represented by Mrs. McKee, who is not wearing mourning. At all the other events of the winter Mrs. Har rison expects to bo present if her health permits. While she is by no means delicate, she is not able to stand a great amount of fatigue. 'either the President nor Mrs. Har rison expects to accept invitations out side of the Cabinet houses, following in this the custom esta"bl ished by Presi dent Cleveland, -Ho kept it strictly un til last winter, when Mrs. Cleveland, wanting to see the inside of more houses than the limited half dozen or so, ac cepted both dinner and party invita tions. Mrs. McKee will however, go out, having so many old friends here who delight to do her honor. . ,. , TIib tountem Dl Sloptercole. Washington, Dec.' 83. Mrs. Knox. of Pittsburg, and her daughter.

Fuel was so scarce in the winter that logs were used by resting one end on a chair with the other in the fire. At the same, time the children were without shoes. - The food consisted of cornmeal one week and flour the next, with some rice and tea. All five had to sleep in one bed to keep warm. ;' Whil-M Butler was overseer Mrs. Wisherman was confined twice, and in neither case did she have medical aid, and none at all except that of her hus-r band.-' Mrs. Wisherman : hacr to go two -.f miles away iu Evt uoi cvi uuioiii uu. to flour and ctrry it home.

MUTRIE DESERTS DAY. lie is Reported to Have Signed a Broth erhood Contract. New York, Dec. 23. The first genu ine excitement in baseball circles since the commencement of the fight be tween the Players' League and tho League magnates resulted from the an nouncement made last night, to tho effect that James Mutrie, or 'Smiling" James, had signed a contract to manage the Brotherhood team. By some it is alleged that the paper was signed as a huge joke, under the impression that such a document siffned on Sunday would be invalid. It has since been asserted by those versed in the law that complications may arise out of the sigrning'tof this contract which will likely result in a more wholesome regard, on the part of Mr. Mutrie, for acts performed on the Sabbath day. ' - ; If the contract is artlrmed to-day no' question will be raised as to its valid ity; but, on tho other hand, is is an open issue whether the Brotherhood team by this "alleged- joke have not placed "smiling James" in a position much more open to legal quibble than any construction which Mr. Day's law yers may place on the "reserve" clause. It is said the salary promised Air. Mutrie is $5,000 per year. ..The agree ment reads: L James Mutrie. do hereby agree to resign from the employment ol John B., Day. .and agree to manage the New York Players' League Club for the season of istfo ax the stated salary ot $5. 000.. , This agreement is final and decisive .. .(Signed), James Mutme.'.
