It Is merely thla: "I do solemnly swear that I will faith ' fully execute the office of President of the L'ulted Htntea and will to the beat of my ability preserve, protect and'de ;fend the Couatltutlon of the United !

The longest Inaugural address on rec ord was that of William Henry Harri son, which was Indeed formidable, com prising H')7H words. The shortest In augural address was Washington's sec ond, consisting of only 134 words. Liu cjIu's second come next to It In point of brevity.

All of our twenty-eight Inauguration In the past, beginning with Washington's first, have had this adjunct except seven. These were Washington's second. Adams', both or Jefferson's, Jackson's first, Pierce's and Hayes'. In each case the absence of the ball feature has been significant of the rtate of the popular mind or the scruple of the administration domina ting the occasion. Thus during Wash ington's first administration vloleut criticisms were launched against him on account of his alleged fondness for courtly and monarchical ceremonies, and as an offset to these criticisms Washington at bis second Inauguration and Adams when bis turn came elim inated the ball feature entirely. When Jefferson came Into the kingdom, pledg ed as he and bis party were to intro duce reforms and restore simplicity of government, be. too. felt constrained to eliminate the ball, and did so. al though he had no scruples about attend ing the ball In honor of his successor, Madison. Likewise Jackson, pledged and Mrs. Lincoln were present and seemed to enjoy the exercises. Orant'a show the Heat. The grand ball given In the north wing of the treasury on the night of Grant's first Inauguration eci:psed all affairs of Its kind up to that date. Grant's second Inaugural ball, however, held In a temporary building In Judi ciary Kquare, was even more note worthy, not because of Its brlliiamy, or of the fact that tickets cost 120 each, but on account of a mere accident of weather. No provision bad been made for heating the building, and as the thermometer that night fell to four de grees above zero, with a howling gale blowing, the dancers found themselves In a pitiable plight. The ladles were obliged to retain their wraps entire awl the gentlemen their hats and overcoats. The supper, which was elaborate and expensive, was a frigid repast The ornamental devices In Ice cream were frozen doubly and the champagne and punch were deserted for Lot coffee, which was the only hot thing t tne supper. The dancers were literally frozen out before midnight. Garfield's inaugural ball was held In the unfinished National Museum Build ing and was la brilliant affair. The dec orations were the finest ever seen In Washington. Cleveland's first Inaugural ball, at the Pension Office, then newly completed and gorgeously decorated for the occa sion, was c truly memorable function. More than 8.000 people filled the build ing at one time, while many thousands more outside awaited an opportunity to enter. The new President arrived at 10 o'clock and led off In the grand march with Miss Katharine Bayard, daughter of his Secretary of State, on bis arm.

Waahin-rton Takes the Oath. The oath m.s administered to Wash ington at bis first inauguration by Chancellor Livingston, of New York, and at his second by Justice William dishing, of Massachusetts. To John Adams the oath was administered by Chief Justice Oliver Ellsworth, of Con necVcut and Chief Justices of the Uni ted States Supreme Court have offici ated In a similar capacity ever since. AH our subsequent Tresldonts have been sworn In by five men Chief Jus tlces John Marshall of Virginia, Roger R. Taney of Maryland, Salmon 1. Chase and Morrison U. Walte. of Ohio. and Melville W. Fuller of Illinois. Mar shall, appointed by Adams, had the hon or of swearing In Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, John Quincy Adams and Jack sonan unexampled record. eovirinir nine presidential terms. Taney, ap pointed by Jackson, swore In success ively Van Buren, William Henry Har rison, Tolk. Tyler. Taylor. Tierce. Bu. chanan and Lincoln (first term). Chase, appointed by Lincoln, administered the oath to Lincoln (second term) and to Grant both terms. Walte, appointed pretty much as Jefferson had been to the restoration of simplicity, cut out the ball from the festivities attending his Inauguration, although he Incorpor ated a ball in the program for his sec ond Inauguration. At Tierce's Inaug uration the weather waa execrable and It appears that the ball was allowed to lapse through the lack of energy of the Inauguration managers. T resident and Mrs. Hayes had strict U -f own regarding their social obligations and both were averse to dancing, as well as to the use of wine at state din ners. Accordingly the committee In charge of Hayes' Inauguration cut out the ball. Flrat Ball Is Krllllant. The first Inaugural ball, that given by Washington, was postponed from Anrll 80 to May 7 in consequence of the ab sence from New York of Mrs. Washing ton. When It came off It proved to be a brilliant function, attended by the elite society of that day. Both the Tresldent and his wife danced with evi dent enjoyment The ball In honor of the Induction of Lincoln the first time was not attended by the new Tresldent, but at the ball following bis second Inauguration, held on March 0 In the model-room of the Tatent Office Building, both President been held In the Tension Office, where the decorations In each case have eclipsed those of Its predecessors.
