Mr. Hoag arrived thero with his family, and
within n few weeks of his advent, he had tho
distinguished honor of standing godfather
for the now frontlor settlement. Having

tho now settlement a word from tho nuclent

Mrs. I). O. Croly, lwtter known as "Jennlo
Juno," is ono of tho few womon who hnvo
had n thorough Journalistic training. Sho
began her career by writing for tho uows
pairs, nnd sho has worked In every depart
ment of n newspaper olllco except tho com
posing room. Sho is n very hard worker,
but sho has won tho reward that does not
always follow hanl work good pny. Mrs.
Croly wns ono of tho founders of Sorosls,
nnd wns its president from tho first until
within two years, when sho handed in her
resignation, much to tho regret of tho bovcrnl
hundred uiemlers of that society. Sho is

to mention it to him. Ho thinks moro of

for being known especially as tho nuthor of
that skit. What ho wants to bo nnd is will

taste for being recognized on tho merits of

nover thought it was funny.

White House, where ho is very fond of going
when weather and health ieriult. Ho had
just passed in front of tho president and was
being shot through tho pas.sagoway Into tho
East room, which was already well filled. Ho
tottered its an old man in his IXHh year will,
and ho wns rather timid and garrulous. Ho
was clinging to tho arm of his granddaugh

Baltlmoro nnd married him. "Don't go so
fast," ho said. "Wo shall got lost in tho
crowd. Hero, hold on to my nrm I Dear mo,

Is contradicted by Gen. Badeau, who re

Tho puro nmlier is precious stuir, nnd the
oxtravngnuco and grandeur of tho Russian
rulers may bo suggested by a chninbcr in tho
old palaeo of Catherine tlio Great at Tsarekn-
Selo, thirty miles from Petersburg, which is
lined, walls nnd coiling, with tho finest
amber. As tho room is half as largo as tho
great Jiost room in tho white Ilouso nt Well
ington, its vuluo is purely a matter of specu
lation. It caunot bo estimated. Tho golden
gum is in largo plecea larger than can bo
found elsewhere in tho world; in fact, no
where but under tho wntors of tho Baltic lu
bo large nn accumulation of tho stuir, nnd it
in laid, llko mosaic, so artistically thnt tho
divisions can bcarcely bo detected. When
tho room is lighted tho effect is superb.
Thero is nothing to compare with it. Thin
