"Strip to the waist and I'll tell you In

la also well known as a surgeon. After a
brief examination he added:
"You've an ugly tumor on your liver.
The man thought a moment, then, "I want
It removed at once," he Bald, quietly.
"Tut, tut, man. don't be so hasty." cau
tloned the physician. Dut the patient, more
doggedly than before, answered:
"I mean It, Doc. I want that tumor re
tnored before I leave thla office."
The physician looked the man In the eyea
and saw that they wavered not. He felt
bla pulse and examined his heart and found
"All right." he aald, ahortly.
Within fifteen minutes a man was lying
fen a couch and the physician waa making
fe ten-Inch Incision In hla back. Half an
tiour later the tumor waa removed and an
hour after he had submitted to the opera'

the patient, with his liver cleansed, rode
to his home In a cab, calmly undressed,
went to bed and then told his wife what

the Incident; "and he would have gone
home alone had I not forced myself Into
the cab. He showed absolutely no fear at
anything, and In appearance he looks like
a man who has only an ordinary amount of
grit. Yet his exhibition of nerve waa the
most Inspiring that I ever have seen."
"But your nerve, doctor, in performing

one of the auditors.
The reply was laconic:

mony of all the details in furniture, hang

the whole. That unity baa been so per
fectly secured with such grateful variety In
the trestment of the several rooms la due
to the presiding architect, Mr. McKlm.
The American citizen who aeea the new
White House and has the opportunity of
wandering through lta rooms, relatea the
Now York Times, will feel that the Dresl-

W'btte House was so bad as to necessitate
a radical chance. Some of the woodwork
waa positively rotten.
The great East room Is already com-
pleNd. Thla runs north and south the
entire depth of the White House, making
a grandiose apartment 78x38 feet. It is all
In white. The walls are marked off by fluted
Corinthian pilasters and panels. There la
a liberal use of decorative featurea and
rich gilding, so that, with a certain noble
simplicity In keeping with the architectural
character of the bouse Itself, there is a re
fined dignity that accords with the large
public functions for which thla room la
used. There are wtndowa on three sides of
the room, and a veranda adjoins the coat

It Is now 38x49 feet, and the private dining

When the captain of the district heard of
the murder he declared that now at last

Imprisoned, despite the, pleadings of prom
inent politicians who were swarming
around tbe atation house. So he act about
