political pedestal in tho land it cannot
escape tho visitations of tho droad
mounter. Death is no rcspectur of pur
sons, and palace and hovel, princo and
pauper, must allko bow tlio kuco to IiIh
tyranny. Ah tho Whito House record
stands today, its first mid last deaths
were in tho Harrison family. Never
beforo, however, has an administration
been so sadly marked by tho tragedy of
naturo in tho Whito IIouso and tho im
mediate circle revolving around it.
Tho president's wifo died last weok.
Less than two years ago tho wifo of his
private secretary, Mr. Halford, passed
uway. For hoveral weeks tho privn'.
secretury himself lay at death's door in
tho executive mansion. Secretary Pru
den, of tho Whito IIouso staff, lost hii
wifo early in tho present year. Since
Harrison liccaino president tho wives of
threo other Whito IIouso employees havo
died, niid four or live children havo lieen
lost from tho Whito House circle. In
all theso nttliotions tho president and his
lato wifo performed many acts of deli
cato sympathy, endearing themselves to
tho bereaved. Sinco ho came to Wash
ington as president General Harrison has
lost a sister, and Mrs. Harrison's sister,
Mrs. Scott-Lord, died two years ago.
Death has played havoc in tho cabinet
families too. Walker Blaino died with
in a stone's throw of tho executive mar
sion from a cold taken at a Whito House
reception. His brother Emmons fol
lowed him last summer, just after Mr.
Blaine's resignation from tho cabinet.
Beforo that Mrs. Blaino had lost a sister.
Other cabinet families havo had bereave
ments among their near kin, but tho
most terrible tragedy of all, saddest
scene perhaps tho great East room of the
Whito IIouso ever knew and it has had
more than Its share of tragedies was
when, in tho dawn of morning, fire and
smoko combined to rob Secretary Tracy
of his wifo and daughter.
Their funeral was held in tho White
nouso, and to thin day I find it impos-t,iblo-to
entor tho palatial East room,
even on such occasions as state re
ceptions, when the great apartment is
thronged with beauty and fashion, am'
alight with smiles and laughter, without
thinking of tho afternoon when tho
blackened remaius of mother and
daughter lay there side by side, and near
thorn stood a strong man, a husband and
father, whoso grief was too great for
It is only sinco tho death of Mrs. Har
rison that more than half a dozon per
sons havo known how she, on that sad
occasion, took pity upon tho grief of Sec
retary Tracy, sympathized ns only a
woman could with his yearning again
to behold tho faco of his wifo, and with
her own hands, alone and secretly,
opened tho casket as it lay in the East
room, spread (lowers over the cruel
wounds tho fire had made, and then led
tho secretary to tho spot and loft him
there wit'u his dead.
How matiy bueli scenos tho East room
has witnessed how many tragedies havo
played one or auotherof their acts with
in its beautiful walls! Though tho Whito
IIouso is now nearly a hundred years
old, it is a remarkable fact that for moro
than forty years not one death occurred
in tho families of its inmates. During
tho last half century tho grim reaper
has moro than mado up for lost time.
April I, 1811, tho president's honso
was for tho first tiino wrapped in mourn
ing. On that day President William
Henry Harrison died, just one month
after his inauguration, his fatal illness
having been brought on by exposure 4o
tho storm on inauguration day. Funera'
services were hold in tho East room.
No sermon was preached, but Rev. Haw-
DUIUAL OF FIU:sil)i:XT HAIcWSO.V,
ley pointed to a Bible and prayer book
lying on a table near tho bier, which, he
raid, had been the daily companions of
tho deceased, and added that but for the
president's illness he would havo united
with tho church the pre vious Sunday.
Tho casket containing the president's
remaini was niacin! upon a temporary
catafahpio in tho Knot room, and upon it
was 11 pull of black velvet, with a gold
fringe. On tho eollln lay tho sword of
Justice and the sword of state, surmount
ed by the scroll of tho constitution,
I bound together by a funeral wreath
formed of tho yew and tho cypress.
, Near tho catafahpio stood the new presi
dent, Mr. Tyler, Daniel Webster, Henry
Clay, John Quiucy Adams and other
famous men, the diplomatic corps and
coiigivss being grouped just liehiud
them. Tho funeral procession was an
imposing one. Six white horses drew
, tho funeral car, each horso led by a
I black grcom dressed in white, with
J whito turban and sash. Tho military
followed, and tired a salute at tho vault
i in the Congressltuml cemetery.
Having made a start in tho homo ot
tho presidents, death did not wait long
, beforo resuming his labors there. In
September, lKli?, Mrs. Tyler, wifo t
Harrison'H successor, died in tho White
'House. A sweet pen picture of Mrs.
Tyler and her family was drawn by one
of her daughters-in-law in a private lot
ter, as follows:

I which tho White House bore a part. A

ploded while a party of dignitaries weie
I being entertained on board by Commo
dore Stockton, nnd Secretaries Upshur
I and Gilmer, of tho Tyler cabinet, and
1 Mr. Gardner, of Now York, were In

I sailors. In a somewhat romantic way
President Tyler escaped (heir fate, if
I was then much in love with Mr. Gard
ner's daughter, and was with others lis
tening to tho young lady sing in the
cabin. Tho president had just started
to join his cabinet ministers on deck
when Miss Gardner liegan nnothorsong
whereupon Tyler returned to her side,
At that moment tho explosion occurred
The two cabinet ministers and Mr.
Gardner wore buried from tho East
room, and llvo months lator Miss Gard
ner became Mrs. Tyler and mistress of
the Whito House.
In 18:0 President Taylor died in tho
Whito House. Of all tho deaths in tho
mansion this was ono of tho saddest,
viewed from tho standpoint of tho Imj
reaved partner. Mrs. Taylor had do-

plored her husband's nomination for the
presidency. Sho had followed General
1 Taylor through all his wars, sharing bin
I tent and his privations, and during the
remainder of her life she wanted him to
I herself. His nomination sho denounced
as "a plot to deprive me of his society;
1 to shorten his life by unnecessary care
nnd responsibility." Her words proved
prophetic, for he sacrificed his life in the
dedication of tho Washington monu
ment. Tho weather was extremely hot.
I and tho president drank largo quantities
of ice water and partook freely of fruit,
! bringing on tho fatal illness. On his
death Mrs. Taylor became insensible,
I and tho agonized cries of the family
I were heard out oil Pennsylvania u venue
' Mrs. Taylor's heart was broken, and
sho survived her husband only two
l years. Sho never mentioned tho White
IIouso except in its relation to his death.
1 After ho became president General Tay-
, lor said his wifo had prayed every day
for two months that Henry Clay might
bo elected instead of himself.
In May, 1801, Colonel Ellsworth, one
of tho first victims of tho war, was bur
ied from tho East room, tho simple but
' impressive military service doing moro
than any battle to fire tho northern
i Willio Lincoln, second son of tho pres-
ideut, died in tho Whito IIouso in 1802.
Mr. Lincoln said this blow was the sad-
! dest of his life; tho most difficult to
bear. Tho guests' room, in which he
died, Mrs. Lincoln never entered again.
President Lincoln did not die in the
Whito House, but his body lay in state
in tho East room, and there women scat
tered (lowers upon his breast, rugged
soldiers bent down to kiss his faco, ami
i great crowds of people rich and poor,
black and whito camo to weep.
Mrs. Grant's father, Frederick Dent,
'died in tho White IIouso in 187U. To
tho same room in which Mrs. Harrison
died Geueral Gariled was tenderly car
ried, and there ho lay and suffered for
several weeks. During tho Arthur ad
ministration, and while a Now Year's
reception was being hold at tho White
, ilotiho, Elisha Allen, miuistur from Ha
waii, fell fatally stricken within a few
feet of tho president and his gay party,
thus bringing tho reception to a sudden

I saw fifty different shapes in as iiiiui

a Hare at tho wrist, which comes down
well over the hand, and, by tho way,
this mode makes tho hands look very
small. That on tho right has three plait's
down tho forearm, held by rosottes of
ribbon to match tho moire of tho sleeve
Tho upper right has tho under sleeve of
plain goods, with a laco cap, though
other goods could bo used by scalloping
or otherwise trimming it. Tho upper
loft ono is a very useful and easily made
stylo of sleeve and is much liked for
homo dresses. Short sleeves are puffed,
usually balloon stylo, and often aro left
open on tho front part nnd fastened
lightly with Ik)ws of riblou or jowols.
A pretty bertho is mado of whito laco
and chiffon. Tho shaio is like a long
collar, with a frill of deep laco all around
it and a puffing of chiffon. Around tho
part that comes next tho neck is a puffed
draping of chiffon, ending in a full chou
of chiffon. On tho shoulders aro wind
mill bows of satin riblsjii, either whito
or in a light tint to match a costume.
This berthewill make tho plainest gown
into a tasteful and dressy costume for a
festal occasion if tho gown is turned
in V shape, leaving tho neck slightly
exposed, and It is of course transfer
able There could also be two or three
sets of ribbons to give variety. Those
that stand upward havo a stiffening
made of what is called enpwiro.
Speaking of stiffened bows recalls a
funny little thing that happened tho last
night that delightful Joe Jefferson
played "Hip Van Winkle" hero. There
was a splendid audience, including Mr.
aud Mrs. Cleveland and all tho "best"
people, and they were dro.sMil beauti
fully. Two young girls, modest aud
perfectly ladylike, sat ne.r mo, and they
doiu liad large lolt huts, one with a
fluff of plumes and tho other with three
enormous loops of ribbon standing up in
such a way as to completely cut off all i
viow of tho stage from those isdiind her.
After awhile, when patience really
ceased to bo a virtue and tho two girls I
were intent on tho play, I saw a neatly '
gloved hand reach out and tako hold of ,
ono loop, and by a doft touch bend tho I
wires so that it lay fiat. Another light '
movement and another fell, and when i
tho last was laid low the people about I
could not help laughing and clapping I
their hands, and so did tho two girls. ,

I noticed that tho most refined and

bonnets. A particularly charming one
was of salmon pink velvet twisted around
on tho flat crown so that it looked like a
cake as it is being stirred in a bowl. The
brim was of black velvet, ami there were
two pretty lull rosettes of quilled rihlsm ,
of tho shade of tho crown. i
Mrs. Cleveland wore a black silk of ,
somo kind, with high puffed sleeves
studded with burnished steel spangles.
It was high in tho neck, and she wore a
black velvet and
laco close bonnet i
with a 1 i 1 1 1 e i

pleasing now shades, and there Is an
endless array of plaid. Tweeds and
cheviots are also spread out for the
choice of tho wise woman who wants
something to outlast one season and give
her the worth of her money.
There are plain goods, and there are
stripes, and there are mixtures wherein
several tints are interwoven in such a
manner that ono can scarcely tell what
colors there aro. They aro like the wild
heathor or the mignonette -when you
examine them closely you find that thoro
are ten or more colors aud shades, all
harmonized or blended into ono pleasing
surface of no particular color.
Somo of tho woolens only a few,
though havo woven patterns of (lowers
or hyzantiuo borderings, aud some again
havo horizontal stripes, but I think tho
plain goods and plaids will Imj preferred,
though stripes always ha o their devo
tees. I noticed some of the shot betigallnes
that had a sort of frosty vino over tin.
surfacoj iih though Jack Frost had
thrown a little whito sheen over it. It
was indescribably beautiful.
For the benefit of thoso who do not
exactly know a liengalino from any
other silk, I will say it lias a ground
liko Irish poplin, with heavy cords close
together crowning tho fabric. It is not
all silk, as tho filling is wool, but r.
makes ono of the most superb fabrics
wo have, so far as looks go. It is used
occasionally for very dressy wraps, and
it shows tip lino trimming magnificently.
In the first illustration is nn entire
carriage or visiting costume of stent
gray liengaliue, the skirt having nc
trimming whatever. The wrap has u
plain front under tho shoulder cape and
is made with a Watteau plait in the
back, and the little capo has a border
ing of Russian sable. There aro cuffs ol
the same, aud six buttons in front made
with tiny sablo heads. Tho collar i
lined with It. Tho entire costume is a
model in quiet, good tasto, and could be
copied with good effect in cloth oi
camel's hair. Tho hat is covered with
tho samo material, and has a tuft of os
trich plumes shading from whito to tan.
Tan is the color of tho walking suit
on tho other figure. It is mado of diag.
onal winter cheviot and has threo rows
of stitching around the bottom, tailor
finished. The box coat is severely plain
Mid rigidly correct. Tho back is cut
straight across and seamless. With this
is worn a turban of brown stitched felt
and brown velvet bows and some
trimmed hen feathers, altogether -i
stylish costume and suitable for women
of almost any age.
Tho trimming of a corsage nowadays
is almost a work of art, and it is cor
tuinly ono of great difficulty; and as it
will not always bo convenient to get a
dressmaker to arrange in a now manner
on an old gown, I hero present two novel
nnd effective styles. For tho upjior ono
it requires five-eighths of n yard of silk
and threo yards of riblmn. Tho silk is
gauffered in front and back half around
tho waist aud held straight by long
buckles. Tho threo bands lined with
buckram will easily hold their places.
Tho Ikjw is made with threo loops and
two fishtail ends.
