Its. WOODItOW WILSON, besides
is a master of the mysteries of culinary art. She can proparo all man
ner of dainty dishes, the recipes of which are her own secret, in espe
cial being a famous cakemaker. Nothing tlollghts her more, whon op
portunity offers, than to descend Into the domain of the White House chef, clad
In a gingham bib and apron, and, with her sleeves rolled up to the elbows, pre
pare and bako a cake of her own invention for tho delec

Mrs. Secretary Bryan is a born housekeeper. She can
not abide hotel life. She loves to entertain, but prefers
tho presence of a few intimate friends to the more formal
large gatherings, which her position as the wife of a
cabinet officer compels her to undergo from tlmo to time.
During Secretary Bryan's visit to the Pacific coast Mrs.
Bryan took advantage of her husband's absence to enjoy
a few days "rest cure" at a Washington sanitarium as a
brief respite from the burdensome social obligations
which of necessity are a part of her dally life.

popular with them. Frequently she is her father's sole companion on his long

Miss Eleanor Wilson, whose Intimates call her "Nell," is an enthusiastic
horsewoman. No "namby pamby" trots for her, but a good stiff hurdle, tho
stiller tho better if the horse will take It. She is a constant source of altcrnato
admiration and terror to Washington folk when displaying her horsemanship.
Tho daughters of the president, while lively, agreeable and brimful of life,
steadfastly decline to permit the allurements of society to divert them from
their self imposed labors in behalf of good citizenship. They are also enthu
siasts In all forms of outdoor sport.

I Mrs. David F. Houston, the popular wife of the secretary of agriculture, Is
noted as a woman who can keep a secret Before going to Washington she

hobby, after her husband and children, Is the practical
study of social economics.
Tho wife of the secretary of war, Mrs. Lindley M.
Garrison, is noted for her keen sense of humor. It Is
said that in this respect she oven outshines her dis

Mrs. William C. Itedfleld, whose spouse before entering the cabinet was
once mentioned for vice president, has been called the typical "Wilson woman."

Today's Short Story

ened with pulmonary trouble, de
cided to give up business, go
west and live an outdoor life. Taking
his family with him to Kansas, ho
bought a farm thcro and entered upon
tho work of raising crops. Ho suc

and a family of children grow up
One day a neighbor owning a farm
on tho opposite side of tho road from
the Maxwells died, and his family
moved away. A few months later tho
closed farmhouse was reopened, and
an 111 favored man was seen moving
about tho place. He had bought tho
farm and, being a bachelor, had gono
to llvo alono on It. His name was
Stuntz. Ho came from Kentucky, was
about forty years old and was In all
respects a disagreeable looking person.
As a matter of policy Mr. Maxwell
went over and made his acquaintance.
and Mrs. Maxwell Invited hltn to sup
per. Ho accepted the Invitation, but
said very llttlo during tho meal. Tho
only person present who seemed to
arouso his attention was Caroline Max
well, tho oldest daughter, aged twenty.
Not long after this Stuntz Joined
Miss Maxwell on tho road and walked
with her. She treated him civilly,
though she found it difficult to do so.
One day Mr. Maxwell was astonished
at receiving a call from Stuntz for
tho purposo of asking for Carollno's
hand. Tho fathor concealed his dis

that any such match would bo impos

One day Mr. Maxwell was obliged
cither to surrender his manliness or
protest nt the shooting by Stuntz of
tho household dog, beloved by all tho
Maxwell family. Stuntz went Into his
house to get his gun to kill Maxwell,
whoso wife, terrified, dragged him
within doors and locked him in.
Tho next morning Stuntz was seen
sitting on his porch with his gun in bis
hands, evidently watching for Mr. Max.
Tho weather was hot and murky,
ragged clouds passing overhead. Dur
ing the afternoon a dark mass of cloud
appeared above the southern horizon.
Mrs. Maxwell, looking out of n win
dow, saw it' Sho also saw Stuntz sit
ting with his gun across, tho road not
200 yards away. Presently tho cloud
assumed tho shape of an immense bal
loon, a,nd tho whole family went to the
Stuntz was not facing tho balloon
cloud and didn't seo it. Furthermore,
he, being from Kentucky, had had no
experience with Kansas cyclones. On
came tho pillar of cloud, gyrating liko
a top and humming like" a mighty cat
aract Then suddenly Stuntz, amid a mass
of whirling timbers which a second be
fore had been his house, went up into
tho air. Whirling like a teetotum,
turning a thousand somersaults, he
was carried with the rapidity of a
cannon ball for a mllo and a half, then
was dashed to the ground from an alti
tude of several hundred feet
When tho Maxwell family emerged
from tho cellar they saw neither
Stuntz nor his house. His gun w

F your wife is a doctor, why didn't
you go to her for your cold?"
"Too expenslvo, doctor. Last time
she ordered mo to spend six weeks
at Palm Beach and came with mo her
self." Both Henpecked.
"We're henpecked, pa, ain't we?"
"Why, what do you mean, my boy?'
"Well, ma makes me wash my hands
before I come to the suppor tablo, and
she makes you wash yours before you
hook up her back."
He Got Even.
"Brown sent me a brick by parcel
post, but I got even with him."
"What did you do?"
"Passed tho word along to a number
of agents that bo was figuring on tak
ing oat more life insurance."
"Tbe man who runs this store has
got the right idea all right."
"He advertisos, 'Bagpipes and musi
cal instruments.' "
Every cook knows the patience and
tlmo wasted in hunting holders, which
seem to have a way of disappearing
Just at the moment that they are most
needed. All this may be avoided by
sewing two holders at the end of inch
tapes, which are suspended from a
tape band which fastens around tho
waist, Just as an apron band does. .Let
them reach to. the bottom of the dress,
one at each side of the waist line. They
will always be ready when needed.
Have some of your kitchen holders
made of doublo size and stitched to
gether on three sides, so that the hand
can be thrust into them almost as into
a mitten. This will save tho hands
from getting red, rough backs, which
readily crack and chap.
A handy hook is made by taking any
smooth stick and inserting into ono end
a good strong screw hook, right anglo
shape. It is useful for various pur
poses. It will draw hot utensils from
the oven, pull down window shades
that havo Jumped beyond one's reach,
pull windows down from the top and
reach anything tucked away In tho cor
ners of shelves, etc.

Tho mother or nurse who wants to bo

I The Lost Chord
EATED one day at the organ,
I was weary and 111 at ease.
And my fingers wandered Idly
Over the noisy keys.
I know not what I was playing
Or what I was dreaming then.
But I struck one chord of music
Like the sound of a1 great amen.
It flooded the crimson twilight
Like the close of an angel's psalm.
And It lay on my fevered spirit
With a touch of Infinite calm.
It united pain and sorrow
Like love overcoming strife.
It seemed the harmonious echo
From our discordant life.
It linked perplexing meanings
Into one perfect peaoo
And trembled away Into silence,
As If It were loath to cease.
I have sought, but I seek it vainly,
That one lost chord divine
Which camo from the soul of the organ
And entered Into mine.
It may bo that death's bright angel
Will speak In that chord again.
It may be that only In heaven
I shall hear that grand amen.

I have heard that all the tears
That we never cry
All aro Baved throughout the years
Until some time by and by,
When they're changed to Jewels gay,
Gems that fairies far away
Catch and fling upon tho grass.
We can see them as we pass,
And they make the morning bright
With their gleaming, happy light
