Ccofreiaioaal Library Compile! Many
Valuable Works Eacb Tear.
Blorr Prt(ri In Work ( Preparing

of President ftnd HI
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Oct. 2. (Special.) Th
library of congress In the rut two years
bag Issued many valuable bibliographical
publication, consisting mainly of annotated
listi of maps and books relstlsg to sub
jects which are of Interest to congress.
For Instance, tb bibliographical depart
ment baa put forth a cumber of lists of
books bearing upon the subject of trust,
of the history, geography, bibliography,
etc., of Porto Rico, Cuba, th Philippines
and others relating to various subjects
considered in the general debates before
congress. All of these books have been
Issued by the heads of the departments In
the library.
There ha been prepared In addition to
II of these a large book of about 2,000
pagea la the form of an annotated list of
the newspapers of th United States, ex
tinct and current, going quite fully Into
the Individual history of each accordiug to
It relative Importance. The main points
usually covered In the Instance of each
newspaper are the founders, date of founda
tion, the politic, the general policy, the
principal editors and proprietor and malu
events in Its history, with dates; It rela
tive Importance and any editorial action
which might be considered unique or In
structive In journalism.
This work wa performed by a well
known newspaper man who worked In a
aubordlnate capacity In the periodical di
vision, Ralph M. McKenzle, who was an
employe of the department for five years.
The work occupied much extra time
over and above what wa required In the
government service and was turned over
to the librarian a year and a half ago on
prom le of publication as a library docu
ment. Owing to atress of work and the
fact that It wa a large production. It has
never been published nor reduced to type
written form for publication.
Interest to Newspaper Ma.
The book would be of great Interest to
newspaper men throughout the country, aa
was evidenced when first brought to the
attention of the librarian. Many newspa
per urged Its Isaue from the press and
Itave it Urge apace In tholr Washington
dispatches aa well as In their editorial
column. Th book also Includes a cata
logue of the newspapers in the library of
rongre, which ' has been published a a
aeparat library document, omitting all the
Individual newspaper history. It wa is
sued as a document by the head of the
periodical department and the real author
was given no credit for his production;
Congress will be asked this winter to bav
tb work Issued from the press as a publio
document, provided th author, atcKentle,
who has recently been dropped from the
library force, can be retained In Washing
ton and Induced to take the responsibility
of preparing and editing the work tor pub
lication. It will be of encyclopedic else
nd will have large Indexes and a biblio
graphy of about 10,000 references to book
from which the newspaper history wa se
cured. It I considered too valuable a production
'to be consigned to the wast heap or other
wise lost, because the average - librarian
doea not conalder modern newspapers worth
presarvlns lo a modern library or their
bibliography or history of sufficient value
to be printed, when old map end print and
other bric-a-brac of a more or less worth
less character a far aa the publio is
concerned, have been catalogued by the
library In thousands of printed pagea.
Kaeeatlve Office About Ready.
The new executive building where the
president and the White House larce will
have quarter will be ready for occupancy
bout November 1. It Is doubtful when
the White House will be ready tor tha
president's family. The first Installment
of the new furniture for the private part
of the house arrived several day ago, but
It has been stored In the upper corridor
until Mrs. Roosevelt return to Washing
ton and Is ready to direct It disposal In
the rooms. It the president's family move
Into the White House within the next few
weeks they will have to depend upon tbo
elevator or the small spiral stairway, start
In from the pantry and running to the
econd floor, for means of reaching the
private rooms, because the mala stairway
are far from completed. For this reason
It Is probable that the president's family
will remain tor some weeks yet at the
Iatayette Square house.
The elow work on the improvement of
th White House haa caused some doubt
' to the possibility ot the completlen of
the etate apartments In time for wlntor
receptions and levees. Every effort will be
mad to have th East Room and the Red.
Blue and Green parlcre ready for the New
Tear reception and tb regular state card
reception always held in January aud
February. But Mr. Roosevelt will not he
able to hold many social functions outside
ot the official onea this winter en account
o the leoompleted state at lue lower part
of the White House. .

remained on tbe walla of the famous cham
ber forever If Wavhlngtotilans and strang
ers had not evinced such an eagfr desire
to seo them. Tbe crowds beesme so large
that the painters employed in and about
the house wing ot the rapltol were fre
quently obliged to stop their work. Te
cap th cllmaa, however, a corps of pho
tographers from tbe New York Illustrated
weeklies began to arrive with mammoth
picture-taking machines. Then the guard
Ian of the rapltol threw up their hand.
A conference was held snd a decision
reached to pstnt the pictures out. Another
reason assigned for the removal of tbe
pictures Is that their being there wa nut
dignified. It was not regarded ss proper
for them to remain in so public a place in
tbe capitol of the United States.
t'nlqne Character Die.
William E. Chandlee, a tobacco dealer 79
years old, died at his residence In this
city Thursday. At the time of his death

mashed one of his fingers. Throwing down
Lis tools he declared that he would never
again work st hi trade. Being an expert
penman he secured a stand In Wlllard's
hotel and became a card writer. During
that period he wrote cards for men promi
nent In politics during tbe exciting daya
Just before the war. Through the friend
ship of the famous Innkeepers the Wil
lardu he next took charge ot the hotel
cigar stand. While conducting this busi
ness Joseph C. Wlllard Intrusted hlra with
a mesasge that altered Lincoln's plsns for
coming to Washington. The message was
Id a sealed envelope and was given to Mr.
Chandlee with explicit Instructions to de
liver It Into tho hands of no other than
Colonel Sumner, who was In charge of th
president's party. The message, which-was
delivered with great difficulty te Colonel
Sumner at the Continental hotel. Phlladel-
pnla, told of the high feeling then exist-
Ing In Baltimore and advised tb president

quietly passed through Baltimore In the
night and before his Identity could be dis

Seventy-Four Years of Wedded
Wlthoat a Quarrel.
After seventy-four years of married life
Mr. and Mrs. John lams of Washington
county, Iowa, look back and find that they
never had a dispute much less a quarrel.
However strenuously they may havs
fallen out with their neighbors, tbelr chll-
ren and their other relatives, relates the
Chicago Tribune, they have steadfastly per
sisted in keeping peace with each other.
They, have just celebrated tbe 74lh anni
versary ot their wedding and none ot their
ten children aad none ot their relatives was
present. Mr. and Mrs. Isms let It be knowa
that this wss their celebration and that they
preferred to be alone. They care more for
each other than they do for their children,
lthough they are .not lacking .n paternal
affection. ,
John lams is 93 years old. His wits is 92.
When they took each other for better or
worse conditions were such that In this dsy
people would consider it decidedly for
worse. Mrs. lams, was then Sarah McVey.
After a courtship ot several months shs
said "yes" to John, and an uncle. Squire
Jacob McVey, was called te her homo to
perform the ceremony. That was In Wssh-
lngton county, . Pennsylvania.
The groom wore, a, blue Jeans suit which
cost (1 i yard, lie bad a M fur cap and a
new pair, of glover-whlch he had purchased
with the Intention of dragging them on at
the last trloment', Jbut his intentions failed
htm and he accepted' his bride with glove
less hands. The bride wore a calico dress
which In those days cost 17 cents a yard.
In tho days when John lams centered his
affections' so strongly on Mlaa Sarah she
was, according- to his description, the pret
tiest girl In Pennsylvania. She had rosy
cheeks snd a figure tbat did not need a
straight front" to make It trim. Now she
Is changed, but she holds tbe affections Just
the same. John, at S3 years, admits the
Now," he ssld, "she looks a little dif
ferent. Her nose and her chin almost meet
and her figure Is not so gracefully propor
tioned as It was seventy-four yesrs ago, but
she Is a good old woman Just the same."
Mre. lams, the pretty Ssrsh thst wss.
laughed at this description.
When they moved to tha west and set
tled In Iowa their first home was a rati pen.
They were busily engaged In building a
luxurious log house, but winter came on
them before It was done and It was not an
unusual thing for the coupla to arise In
their rail house and shake several Inches
of snow oft ths bed as ths first step toward
breakfast. Constitutions were rugged and
contentment was cheap, too, as both affirm
that those days were the happiest ot their
A ysar afterward they bad a mansion
ready. It was a log house ot two rooms aud
a chimney. They feared ths effenlnlsing in
fluences of such luxury. Mrs. Isms remsm-
bers tbat her husband used to go to church
In his bare feet. It is only of late years
that they havs overcome a prejudice to un
derclothing. The complications of modern
attire ars somewhat beyond tnetr com pre
henalon and they are giving up the study la
When their Tith anniversary came around
they accepted with grstltude tbe ottering
of their numerous descendants, hut they
preferred to remain alone en thst occasion
snd none of th children or grandchildren
csme to litter their floors with ths remains
of a feast. Their only callers were a few
of the neighbors who "Just dropped in" te
ssy a friendly word.
Th descendant of the old coupl num
ber ten children, thlrty-alx grandchildren
and sixty-five great grandchildren. Soon
after he had gone to Washington county,
Iowa, John lams walked twenty-five miles
te the government lend office and paid S0
tor forty acTes of Isnd.
This Is their home now, with large addi
tions, Yesr by year he added to hts hold
ings until he had a qusrter section valued
st $90 sn acre. Mr. Isms does not agree
with the old saying that the ony good In
dlan Is a dead Indian. He aaserts that he
trsded with them so long as thsy were his
neighbors and found them reliable and
A sermon against the uae of tobacco and
whisky cannot be found In his life. He has
been a moderate user of both. On ot bis
visitors at the recent celebration wss In
vlted to come back and attend ths funeral;
for the old people have a grim sort ot
humor. Tho visitor responded esrasstly
that be hoped to bs abls to come to the 75th

"1 don't know tbat I can bring diamonds,
though." hs added.
"That's all right." ssld John lams, "bring

In "Pudd'nhead W'llson," the play founded
on Mark Twain' tory, the country law
yer, whose fad It Is to collect Impressions
of tho thumbs of his acquaintances, con
vict a defendant of murder by Identifying
his thumb print with an impression t-.ken
some time before the trial. The audience
finds the notion Ingenious and amusing,
but tho comment is apt to be that wbilo
It serves its purpose In a melodrama It
would have no utility In real life. On the
contrary, finger prints as evidence sre com
ing to be regarded as of considerable Im
portance by the British and continental po
lice. In the central criminal court cf Lon-
don recently, relates the New York Sun, a
defendant was convicted of burglary on
such evidence. The prosecutor said It was
offered to convict for the first time In an
English court. It seems that the window
sashes of the house entered hsd been
freshly painted, and on one of them was
left the Impression of the burglar's hand.
A photograph of It was made by tbe po
lice. Two months later the defendant was
arrested In tbe neighborhood after a chase.
In which he dropped s burglar's kit. Ser
geant Collins ot Scotland Yard, who, like
"Pudd'nhead Wilson." had made a study of
hand prints, took an Impression of the
prisoner's thumbs snd fingers snd t'Stlflod
that the lines of the prisoner's left hand
exactly corresponded with the impression
left on the freshly pslnted window sash
by the burglar. This evidence convinced
the Jury and it brought In a verdict of
guilty. Unfortunately tor a challenge of
the theory set up by the prosecution, the
prisoner was not represented by counsel.
That theory was tbat the finger prints of
no two living persons are exactly alike.
In the English prisons band impressions
ot the Inmates are taken as well as pho
tographs and measurements. In France
finger prints are sometimes offered in. evi
dence in criminal esses. So far as we
kpow the police of the United States have
not made any use of the theory in their
records for tbe identification ot criminals. .
Human Hands No Longer Keeded In
the Work.
Within the last doten years, says tbe
Saturday Evening Poet, the business of
bread-making has been -relegated largely to
machlner), and In many bakeries tbe raw
materials sre converted into dough by
means of a somewhat complicated ap
paratus tbat does the .work without inter
vention by human hands. Obviously, tbe
next etep is to devise a contrivance tbat
will knead ths dough and transform It
Into loaves ready for tbe oven. Machinery
ot such a charscter has been tried, but
nothing ot tbe kind seems to have beea
so satisfactory a a piece of mechanism
which ha Just been patented.
The fresh-mixed dough Is delivered to
this machine through a chute, and passes
thence upon an endless traveling belt. It

Ingenious arrangement ot rollers which re
duce it to a continuous sheet, and alter
nately fold It and flatten It back and forth
until it is made thoroughly homogeneous.
