A 4tralift,-aild wherever the English
tongue is ,spoken by Protestants.
For many reasons that will . readily
Oteur and-heed• not be enumerated,
the new revision is an epoehiin Pro
testantism and a red letter day in all
Christian churches the world over
lis ndvcnt, looked forviard to for
over a decade, and the hope of thou
sands of Christian minds, will be 'a
subject of absorbirig interest.
The revision is catholic in its na
ture; cathedral in its form. It is the
joint work of the new and platorlds;
of all branches of the Protestant
Church; of learning and piety joined'
hand in hand p priests and laymen,
prelate and scholar, working together.
Its origin was in that "cradle of

had any hopes of success had it been . .
confined to the Established Church,
and it therefore contemplated a union
of learning and special fitness - f,er the
labor that Weudid embrace the whole
•world ; that would unite all . EiTlislo

that would produce a text to be. at

There is probably no man An the
country who doeS more
. work than
the PreSident. Quite- certainly no
man in the country does more irri
tating and aggravating work than
the President. It is pleasant enough
to receive a social call or shake hands

sorts of callers a Aecessity, the pleas

nificently. President . .11aAs begins
work Shortly after nine o'clock in the
morning. Ile then appears in the
"President's room," situated in the
right wing of the White House.
This ix a large apartment, plainly
but handsomely furnished. It is on
the - second. floor, and opens into the
ball, and looks from its windows, at
the rear upon the well-kept grounds
and the Potomac beyond, also upon
the alleeed Washington Monument.
The White House, especially this
room, is excellently Ventilated. Even
in the most sultry summer days
there is always a pleasant'
blowing through. The President sits
cane-seated chair at a polished
table aliciA. fifteen tea long and five
broad. His face is to the (toor. To
hip left, near the wall, sits Mt. Webb
Hayes.- 'Back of the' President is Mr.
Dustin, his stenographer. Around
the room are chairs and one. or.two
sofas. 'There is bilt one picture on
the walls—a life-sized portrait of
George Washington, painted by a
South American! artist, and present

Although the President is ready
to receive callers at an early hour he:
never finds the visitors wanting.
Members of Congress and the Presi
dent's advisers walk past the 000T
kettper without showing their cards.
Other visitors must first send their
cards: in by Charley Loeiller; the
door-keeper. Sonietimes there are
as many as twenty people in the
room at -a time. Members of Con
gress take their turn at talking to the
President in the order in which they
entered the room, keeping the tally
thern, , elve. The President indicates
to the others when hp is ready to
hear them. The interviews are short
or long, generally the former. When
the President desires to consult with
out interruption with callers, they
r etire . to, the library adjoining.
Everybody who calls is received ex
cept those upon business striely per 7
taining to the different departments;
such as minor appointment. The
President positively refuses to .hea,i
applicants 'for such places. They
are referred to the departments. It
is his 'rule not to inte,rfcre in any ap
pointments in the departments The
people he receives during the day,
up to half-past two in the afternoon,
generally average ahout two hun
As a general rule each caller is On
a different business. Delegations
sometimes take eight or ten in on the
same mission—except in Baltimore
delegations, which split 'up when
they get, before the - President, and
each man urges separate candidates.
The number of people who call to
"pay - respects and shake hands" is
great alit' growing. They ,mumble
something, seize the'Presideut's hand
and depart. It is a great thing for
the principals of 'foutle seminaries
in adjoining states to fetch to Wash
ington whole batteries of beauty,
and bring them to bear upon the
President. Bridal - partie4 are quite
numerous. 1 $ oln e times they ar
nounce to the President time they
are newly married, but whether they
do or not, that fact is perfectly ap
parent. When no attempt at the
concealment of -their happifie§s is
made, the President presents the
blooming, blushing bride with a flow-
.er from the large, fragrant boquet
Which is always on:,his table. When
concealment is intended, he looks
unconeious, while the groom is re
markably conscious. Tlie•President

After dinner there are more visitors
to be seen—visitors whose business
would occupy more than the time
that could conveniently be. given

dinner. Frequently the only time
that he,bas with the family'. is before

lunch and at, dinner. This - is'about
the day's routine at the. house dur-=
ing the busy Congressional ' days.
During the summer the President
drives in from the ,Soldier's . Home
about ten in the morning, and leives
early in the afternoon. ',He has kit,
few callers. A great many people
go out to the Home to see him 3 on
business, later in the day.
On Tuesdays and Fridays there
are Cabinet meetings. The members
of tho Cabinet drop in one , b - y one,
but tliey are all on hand by twelve
o'clocl. Each member brings his
portfolio. The President sits at the
head at the table,. and Secretary
Schurz at the foot ; on the right,
next to the President, is the Secre
tary of State, ikirt to him the Secre
tary of War, and beyond him the
Postmaster-General. . On the 'left,
next to the President, sits the Secre
tary of the Treasury, the neat to him
-the Secretary of the Navy, and next
to - the Secretary of the Interior on
that side the Attorney-General.
After the Cabinet meets it is ten or
fifteen minutes before the members
get to work. That ten minutes is
taken up in greetings and off-hand
talk, in which the sprit '4)f fun and
humor crops out a good deal: The
Cabinet are all men with astinny i
fun-loving side, when out of official
harness. Judge Key is perhaps the
olliost, thougli the Attorney-General
pushes him hard for that distinction.
Secretary Thompson is a proverbial
lover of a pleasant joke, while. Secr
etary Schurz is hardly equalled in
telling one. Secretary McCrariis a
, food story-teller. Secretary Sher:
man• does not indulge in humor often,
but when he does, it is, on account of
its unexpected character, the more
enjoyable,. Secretary Evarts is one
of those of the quietly humorous sort.
is. fund of dry humor and wit is
uexhaustable, and though not up- .
oarious, is keetely enjoyable. the.
President has probably the heartiest
Cabinet that any President ever as
sembled around' him. • The old bores
who keep at them day by day are
unmercifully dealt.with by the heads
of the departments when they assem
ble. The Attorney-General seems to
take peculiar delight in joking Sec
retary Thompson. At a recent Cab
inet meeting the naval Secretary
took a list of the midshipmen who
had passed their examinations. The
Secretary called attention to them,
and said he would like that their
nominations:Tor promotion - to-ensigns
be -sent to the Senate as goon as
possible. "as, they are worthy, young
men, who have thoroughly earned
their spurs." "Mr. Thompson," in
terrupted Mr. lleyens, "how long
since have they been ',wearing spurs
in the navy?'.' At a later meeting
the Attorney-General announced that
there was a story afloat of a character
so derogatory to. the inland marine
secretary that it, ought to be.met.

EPIDEMIC Cvcr.E. Dr. Arthur
Ransome, of Manchester, England, a .
physician of some. eminence, ; has
made- - some very extended and care
ful observations, on which he tiiises
the theory that there is a regular
succession of 'd ertai4 epidemics in
distinct cyclical periods. Whooping
cough, for example. has a cycle of
about tour years; small-pox, before
the introduction of vaccination, had
a_ cycle of froth four to ten years; the
cycle of measles: is about, seven
years, while scarlet fever recurs as a
great visitation once -in fifteen or
twenty years. 'Tr. Ransome dismiss- ,
es the theory that these epidemic cy
cles have some connection with the
sun spots, and he accounts for the
curious facts which he considers that
his observations have established on
a much simpler and more sensible'
the*. This is that a certain desti.'
ny of the population at susceptible.

Uri these; disordeTs can only become

sufficiently close for the infection to
