wing of the White
House largely ex
tended in tact so
much space has
Hen utilized in making this change
that the famous tennis court which
applied local color to all anecdotes of
the previous administration has been
wiped out of existence Where exult
ant cries of Fifteen love Thirty I
love and Forty love were cracked I
by the teeth of the mighty bunter and
minor notes of Love fifteen Love

give the president and his staff twice

old offices which were desIgned by the
New York architects McKlm Mead
White cost about 00000 The three
forward walls of that old building are
utilized unchanged in the new design
by the Washington architect Nathan

There will be eleven rooms in the
new ofilces as against the bare half
dozen that served for Mr Tofts prede

The greatest change effected by the
new plans Is in the presidents room

room In the form of an oval an oval
that on the southern exposure fits
without a broken line into a deep bay
window where the presidents desk
will stand
With all Its colonial simplicity and
such simplicity was made necessary
by the predominating note In the rest
of the While House It Is evident that
this is time room on which Mr Wyeih

The cabinet room will have windows

Th UM tf the Oriental Symbol by
the English
It is related in the Book of
Judges that Gideon took from Ze
bah and Zalmunnnh kings of Mid
ian ornaments like the moon that
were on their camels necks The
Midianites were Ishmaelites and
thus ancestors of the Turks so it
is not improbable that the symbol
was derived from them and in use
long before the taking of Constan
tinople in 1453 What lends some
confirmation to this theory is the
fact that Richard Coeur de Lion
adopted this badge after he return
ed from the Crusades having as
sumed it in commemoration of the
victory which he with his galleys
gained over the great Turkish dro
mon off Beirut in the year 1191
This practically the first English
naval victory was celebrated both
in song and history by the chron
iclers of the period
The Englishmen seem to have
been greatly impressed with the
enormous size of the Turkish ship
which must have been a very Dread
nought of her day She was big
ger they say than anything ever
seen at sea gaudily painted in yel
low and green and carried no fewer
than 1500 men among whom were
seven emirs and eighty chosen
Turks for the defense of Acre and
was laden with bows arrows Greek
fire in jars and 200 most deadly
serpents prepared for the destruc
tion of Christians Possibly these
serpents were a species of fire
work or rocket
King Richards galleys attacked
her in vain for a long time as their
crews could not climb up her lofty
sides despite the encouragement
held out to them by their royal
leader who promised to crucify the
last man to board her Eventually
several galleys drew off and put
ting on full speed rammed the big
war vessel together in the same
spot with such effect that she be
gan to sink The English were now
able to get possession of her and to
throw overboard and drown the re
mainder of her crew according to
the pleasant custom of the days of
Portsmouth at this time was as
now one of the principal naval
ports and when in 1104 King Rich
ard set sail from thence at the head
of a fleet of 100 ships he as a spe
cial honor bestowed the royal cres
cent badge upon the town as its
coat of arms A crescent of gold
in a shield azure with a blazing
star of eight points or rays of sil
ver between its horns is the exact
description of the device which to
this day meets the eye everywhere
in the municipality Thencefor
ward too the crescent and star be
came the official badge of the admi
ralty and was used as such up to the
year 1545 when it was superseded
by the anchor Exchange

An Effective Mtthed but One Irt wd
With KmlMrrasiment Y
I met Mrs Dwight on the train
going into town this morning cts
ually remarked Fulton at the din
ner table She had forgotten her
purse so she borrowed a dollar from
me Mrs Fulton laughingly sue
gested that she was afraid it would
be some time before her husband
saw his dollar again Our neigh
bor has rather a poor memory in
some ways she added
Oh shell pay me all right You >
know I often see her on the train
Im glad youre so hopeful said
Mrs Fulton with a skeptical smile
for she had had experiences of her
own in lending Mrs Dwight bowls
of coffee and cups of butter that
had never found their way back to
her kitchen A few evenings later
she asked her husband if he had
met Mrs Dwight again
Yes twice
r Well
I think you are right about the
shortness of her memory for t
though she chatted very pleasantly
she didnt mention the dollar
I guess youll have to charge it
to profit and loss
I wont give it up quite so soon
though I may have to go into bank
ruptcy yet on account of loaning
my surplus without interest
The weeks went by and Mr and
Mrs Fulton continued to joke from
time to time about the absent dol
lar and one evening after having It
ridden all the way out from town in
the same seat with Mrs Dwight
Fulton admitted with exaggerated
mournfulness that he was begin
ning to feel very much discouraged I
about ever regaining his dollar
Does it make you feel bad pa
pa asked his little girl who al
ways listened to the conversation
with grave attention
Of course it does Hilda A dol
lar is a whole lot of money How
would you like to lose the dollar
you have in your bank
I spose it would make me most
sick she answered And her par
ents exchanging amused glances
said nothing
When Fulton sat down at the din
ner table the next night he asked
as he saw a shining silver piece at
his plate Whats this
Your dollar answered Hilda
triumphantly hI went to Mrs
Dwights house today and the door
was open so I just thought Id go in
and ask her if shed tirely forgot
your dollar but she wasnt around
anywhere But it didnt matter
for I found your dollar on the dosk
I spose she kept forgetting to bring
it home so 1 just looked it myself
for you papa I
My country exclaimed the as
tonished father ungratefully What
shall I do
What can you do but return it
and explain said Mrs Fulton 1
who was laughing almost hystoric I
