no question arose in his faithful heart;
ment, possibly oxtending into early

a nearer point to tho Capital. Thero
havo been suggestions from various
sources about purchasing a summer
homo in tho suburbs of Washington,
which at tho end of his official terra

this, but tho President trill not nse his
official rank as a means ot making
money, oven to tho extont of purohas-
ing a homo for his summer use nnd
selling it when ho retires from office.
The President has deoidod scruples
about that. Tho Commissioners of
tho District, his own appointees,
would doubtless feel disposed to mako
improvements in that direction which
would still further givo tho transaction
