HOW WASIII2UITOV TIIAVEMU ) .
The custom of presidential touring dates
hack to Washington , Ho had the most style
about him of nil tlio preildentB. and hu rrxlo
about the country in a , cream colored chariot ,
drawn by four horses , and accompanied by
IKMtUIIdiis and outriders. Ho had a regular
retinue of followers unit the letters of the
times show that many of uis toura were ta
ken for political reasons. Ho appreciated the
value of style , and bo was very careful as to
hit oiiulp.Jgo. Ho once whipped a stnblo boy
because hu did not clean his horses quito as
well as he thouRtit tliuy ought v > be denned ,
and hu imido his hostlers \vusli the teeth of
his horses and clean tbcm with tooth Dicks
daily. It was hl.s test of a well proornoil
homo to rub him ovorwlth his line pocket
iMiidkerchlof , and If a ult of dii't came off or
ho linen was soiled In tlio least the horse liau
to bo gone over again.

Island wlilch was then out of the union.
Washington's second tour was taken from
Philadelphia In 17UI. At this time ho went
to the south and too it a tour through the
southern statei. Ho had 11 line turnout as
usual , ana ho had a saddle horse led with bis
roach In order that ho might rest himsplf by
riding on horseback when bo got ; tfrCd. , Ho
had his whole tour outlined bo-
fora hu started , and his cabinet
ministers had a memorandum of his Itincry ,
and his private secretary say tlmt ho planned
ned tlio trip so'well that no carried the nictn-
oranuum out to the letter. Ho was a fast
traveler , nnd durlmr this trip ho covered
nearly seventeen hundred miles In sixty-six
days , with ono sot ot horses. Ho carried a
peed supply of provisions with him , but bo
had no ido.i of the luxuries of the colored
porter who can mix a cocktail or ( rot up a
dish of terrapin on a half hour's notice. Presi
dent HnrrUoa's car will bo stocked with all
the delicacies of the season. It will contain

A .STOIlV OF ANIUUiW JVCKflO.V.
Andrew Jackson was ouo of our leading
presidential tourists , and ho was ono of tbo
best mixers amonir the presidents. Ho was
acoodJiulKUof human nature , and always
adapted himself to lib surroundltipis. Ho
was worshipped by the democracy nnd dur
ing his tour thousands of babies were pre
sented for him to kiss. Ho was a kind
hearted man and ho did kiss it few hundreds
of them , but ho often rolcgatod the duty1 to
his cabinet , who accompanied him. Colonel
A. H. Hotcler. who was a member of the con
gress of the United States before the war ,
was attending l-'rlncetoii rollcpo when .lack-
son , ntailo ono of those tout's nnd ho accom
panied the procession from Princeton to
Tronton. During tha trip , so bo
tells mo , whllo General Jackson and
General Eutou were riding along in
the carriage together , a lean , long , lank ,
homely woman , was HCCH rushing across the
fluid with n baby In her arms. Shehon'dcd
oft the procession and crawled through the
fence Just as .lack-son and Baton came up.
President Jackson stopped the carriage and
spoku to her She bold up the baby and ho
noticed that Its fnco was well covered with
molasses. Ho seized the child and then hold
ing It out Iwforo him said , "Madam , you linvu
a tine 50n here , nnd ho may bo president of
the United States some day. Ho will doubt
less do credit to you , nnd his face Is a sweet
0110. " Ho thereupon thrust him towards
General "lOaton , and said , "Hero Eaton , you
kiss him " and this tbo
, secretary of war did ,
making the woman snillo with Joy.

notrldo In any other , and it Is my roniem-

was sent to him by his friends. A "part of
tills old coach was In the hands of it southern
planter some years ago , and ono of the pan
els of the cream chariot which President
Washington used Is in the national museum.
It was painted by a celebrated Italian painter ,
nud Is a work of art.
MADISON AND MONROE.
JofTorson dla the most of his traveling ho-
fore ho got Into the Whlto House. As presi
dent ho spent most of hU time hero and at
Moutlcello , iroiiiR from ono place to the other
on horse back. Ho wns n good horseman
and ho often road about the country near
Washington alouo. Madison did much the
same , though ho always rode In hU coach to
Montpelior. Ho took ono or two excursions
down the Potomac , and It was left to Monrno
to innko the xocoml gre.it presidential tour.
Monroe visited New York und Now Kneland
nnd ho Und a series of ovations from the be
ginning to the close of his trip. Ho was well
treated nt New York nud ho was the tirst
president of the United States who visited
Khodo Inland. Ho met old Jolur Adams at
Boston and dined with him , and wont up to
Portland. .Mu. , and then went as far west as
Cleveland nud came back by way of Pitts-
burg , Ho traveled more than three thousand
inllos In Ills catrlagc , and hU tour was , per
haps , the incut rcmorknblo that a president

JOHN qt'INCI ADAMS ANIl l.AMYETTr. .
A now statue Is now being erected to Ln
fayetto in Washington. It Is Just opposite
the white house , and it recalls the grand
faroivell tour whlclr Gonor.il I.afayotto made
in thtx country , John Qulncy Adams wont
with htm. Ho was secretary-of state nt the
time , The French republican , was received
with honor everywhere find the country \runl
wild over him. It was John Qulncy Adams
who wns tha first president to travel on a
rnilrond , out bis traveling was dona after bo
loft tha presidency , nnd ha was In a railroad
ncrldnnt In which two people want killed.
Proildont Harrison's gmndfathor , William
Henry Harrison , tooK the Daltlmoro & Ohio
railroad at Wheeling to como to Washington ,
but ho rod a from his homo to that point hi a
roach. He had a saddle hone with him , and
hu was ao fund of bond-back riding that when
hi went out to the capital to bo Inaugurated
ho refused to rldo In it coach-nnd-four which
had boon , prepared for him nndrodo on horso-
brick. The day was bitterly cold and bomado
his speech without an overcoat , catoblng , It
Is said , at his Itiaupunratlon , a cold which
aided In causing his death a few weeks later.
President Lincoln traveled somewhat whllo
ho was In the white house , but Mis Ufa was
too busy n ono for the ordinary presidential
Junket. His first trip to Washington was
made hy the Michigan Southern und Now
York Central. Ho was received with Krcat
respect everywhere , except nt Baltimore ,
where It was feared Iho southern sympathiz
ers would mob him , and through which city
it l.s said he xvcut dlspuiscd , Ho had n
special train , and ho made DIs speeches from
the baggage air. Andrew Johnson's tour
was n speech-making ono. Ho was under the
Inlluoncc of liquor during a part of It , nnd
some of his utterances wore Injudicious In
the oxtrcmo. Ho went nominally to lay the
corncr-stonoof the Stephen A. Douglass mon
ument nt Chicago , but ho traveled nil over
the country to got thcro.tnklng In Now York ,
Philadelphia and Cleveland. Ilospohoavery-
where , nnd hurt himself every tlino bo spoko.
IIAVKS AND Tin : SOUTH.
President Hayes was a great trav
eler. " Ho was n constant fro-
( juontcr of Grand Army reunions ,
and his southern policy mndo tils
southern toura very popular ono. Ho was
accompanied by lending southerners , and ho
received a great deal of priilso and taffy In
the south. Ho wns ono or the greatest of the
presidential travelers and did a great de.d
moro traveling whllo in the white house thnn
ho has done since ho loft It. It wns different
with General Ornnt. Ho traveled but Httlo
whllo president , going only now nnd then
to Long Hrnnch or Now York , Ho started
out on his tiIp around tbo world , however ,
Just nftor ho left the white house , nnd no
man has over had such a tour as ( hat of hist
around the world. All men-all nations
tried to do him honor. Ho was received like
a king , nnd ho formed an Intlmato acquaint'
anci > with the greatest statesmen all the
world over. Ho came back to the United
States with many now Ideas of government ,
and had ho been re-olected president for n
third term the country would have greatly
profited hy the results of his experience and

ifaines 1C. Polk did not do a great , deal of
traveling whilu In.the white bouso. Ills
nomination was n. surprise to him and to nls
friends. Colonel John Drownlow , n son of
the famous lighting parson , tells me thorois
a letter now In existence , written by Polk a
few weeks before ho was nominated at Balti
more. In this letter Polk writes to Andrew
Jackson De-nelson , endeavoring to get the
support of "Old Hickory" to make hint vlco
I'lesklent. After stating his qualifications
for the place , ho closes as follows : "I liopo
the i'uimcMHCO delegation will exert Its In-
llucncu In my behalf as tlio candidate for vlco
piesidcnt. This has ) been the ambition of my
life. Four years ago I desired the nomina
tion , but I gave war to others , nnd now I
hope my friends will support , me. "
' ThuTonnossuo delegation , " said Colonel
Brownlow , "hud ntf idca of nmltlng Polk
their candidate for the presidency , and their
support of him ns vice president" was moix-ly
nominal. The convention , however , did not
know this. The friends or the other candi
dates were fighting hard , nnd it was In ono
of the bitterest of the struggles that merely
to divert the attention of the convention.
Major Douelson arose and nominated James
K. Polk ns a candidate for the presidency.
Donelson was .supposed to bo the inouth-plcco
of 'Old Hickory , ' and the influence of An
drew Jackson was such that this caused a
st.lmpedo towards Polk , and he wns nomi
nated. When Andrew Jackson heard of It
ho wns not pleased. Ho had a contempt for
Polk , because Polk would not light u duel
with Henry A. Wise when ho pulled his nose
during his stay In Washington us speaker of
the house of representatives. "
"What did Polk say us 16 bis nomination ! "
"They tell a queer story concerning It In
Tennessee , " replied Colonel Brownlow. "Tho
news was announced to him by his brother , *
William Polk , and James 1C. Polk would not
bellovo it. William Polk was a much
brighter man than James 1C. Polk. Ho was
the Tom Corwln ot Tennessee in his flays ,
and was noted as n wng. He could toll stories
by the yard , und President Lincoln , who
know him well , was very fond of him. Ho
was. ruined , however , D.V drinking , and It wns
a curious thing that drink nmdo hLs fncp
white rather than red. Ha drank a great
deal , but ho bad no blossom on his nose.
Well , William Polk was the first man to get
the news of Jarncs 1C. Polk's nomination. Ho
heard of it while fils brother was trying a
potty ten-dollar Justice of the peace case in
the town , and he. ciiino into tbo lawyer's
ofilco and interrupted the trial , saying :
' * * Tlin lintrn hntiif1 flirt _
\ nit * natu fi rtm T r > 1
tlmore ! '
"Tho future president replied that ho had
" 'Woll , Jim , the nomlnntionR are tnado
mid I am blank blanked If you are not nomi
nated for the presidency. '
"James 1C. folk laughed , and so did the
rest of the crowd. They all thought it was
ouo of Bill Polk's ' Jokes , but. they soon
learned that It wns truth , nnd Polk made nn
nctlvo canvass during the camp.iign. An
drew Jnuluou helped him because ho wui the
democratic uomtneo. Ho didn't ' lilco tbo pill ,
but he took it. "
HOW I'OI.K WiS KlI.t.rlD.
'President 10111 wns killed by anxiety and
hard work , " Colonel Brownlow went on.
' 'Ire ' was laid In lib grave by tha Mexican
win1 , nnd in some way ho pot the Idea that
the responsibility for that war rested unon
him. Ho was conscience strlJlceii and felt
himself responsible for the lives lost lit It.
This frchng preyed upon him , and the anx
iety and hard work connected with his posi
tion brought him to his gravo.Vhon ho en
tered the wblto hoiuo ho wns vaunt ; , straight ,
black-haired and about ttfty ycari of ago.
When ho came out ho wns a stooped , wrin
kled old man , whoso hair wns pray and
whoso step \vi\t feeble. Ho went back to
Nashville , and he died a few months after ho
loft the presidency. "
jiiiixsox'snKt.imov. . .
"Polk was a Presbyterian , was ho not ! "
"No , " replied Colonel Brownlow. "ho was
a Methodist , and I know the Methodist
preacher wno baptised hitn. His wife was , a
Presbyterian , nnd it Is probable that the
statement tliat ho. was n Presbyterian him
self , conies from that fitct. I often sec it
stated that Andy Johnson was n Proiby-
torlan. The fact Is ho wns an agnostic , r
know him very well , and according to my
understanding , ho wns Insidu n church only
three times while lie wns president of the
United States. The first time was nt the
memorial services over President Lincoln in
the senate chamber. Tlio second time was
nt the memorial services of Colouel Elliot
Dalrlurcn , and the third tlmo when Henry
Ward Uoechor came to Washington. Boechor
had como out in n sermon , nnd hail supported
'My pallor , ' R * * Johnson's ' policy was called.
Boecncr bai received considerable criticism
for this action , and when he came toV'aah -
niRtou , n friend of the president called at. the
white house and asked him to fro to the
church to hear him preach. President John-
Ron at llrst refused. But ho wa.s told it
would not look well If ho did not go , for
Heechrr had supported him , aud It wns only
fair that no. should go and listen to Boechor.
Ho then went. " KIUNK 0. CVIII'KNTEH.
