That aiuchlnDe mnnd OiUcinl The position of secretary to the president of the United States is an arduous one In the rendering its multitudinous services it calls for the business qualifications of ti method ical and systematic clerk in the of the daily routine of cial work and the finesse of a prac ticed diplomat in meeting and satis factorily adjusting situations which naturally come before him as an in between the president and an assorted public each individual of which believes himself entitled to a portion of the time and interest of the chief executive says Success The task of handling and answering the white house mail is in itself no small one the president receiving from 200 to 1200 letters a day or not each of these com munications receives due attention the secretary carefully sorting and classifying them presenting some to the personal attention of the presi dent referring others to the depart ment or person to which each prop erly belongs while all receive courte ous acknowledgment from the presi dents representative The secretary is also required to meet and dispose numerous visitors wlio call on the president at times not set aside for his public re ceptions and whose business ranges appointment of a supreme court judge or the governor of a turbulent territory to the obtaining of the presidential autograph for a school girls album To deal with this heterogeneous mass in suclua way as to best serve the ends of both business and cour tesy while economizing his own time and easing the strain on the presi dents personal attention by selecting the really important from the trivial the grain from the chaff giving offense to none and sending all away with pleasant words and smiling faces requires endless resources of tact and good judgment The secretary is also expected to keep at his fingers ends the details of all the official business of the execu tive office and the president is likely to send for him frequently each day to consult him regarding official which have been made by him to seek information and advise with him upon some matter under consideration or at a moments to bring papers and data In some case demanding immediate attention A MANEATING ELEPHANT Encounter wllli nu Auliiinl That Was Supposed to He a Devourer of Iliimaiis The natives tell tales of maneating elephants but there is no such thing When I was at the village of the Poorokas they told me of an elephant that it was impossible to kill He had a charmed life They made him out to be a monster writes William Stamps Cherry in 3IcClures Maga zine He ran about in their planta tions charging every man he saw He had been the terror of the village for years and had killed several He would suddenly disappear and as suddenly come back again Ata the time I was there he had just killed one of the guards of the plantation and strange to say they could not find the mans body His hut had been torn down and the elephant tracks were oil around showing that he had done the work The natives all de clared that the elephant had eaten him and no amount of argument would convince them that it was con trary to the nature of an elephant flesh My own opinion is that after the elephant had gored the man to death with his tusks a leopard had carried away the body They showed me the elephants tracks and declared his tusks were as big as a tree stand ing near which measured IS inches in diameter The footprints at least were large and showed that he was no small beast I organized a party and following his tracks all day long came upon him about five oclock in the afternoon as he was digging roots I crept up behind a cocoanut palm tree so as to be on the broad side of him T waited until he let his ears fall back on his body to give me the exact spot where to shoot the ear marking the perpen dicular line of the body shot Then I clipped the line a Xo 4 ball just two inches from its outer diameter and behind the front leg He doubled up turned halfway round and fell on the wounded side the ball having passed through both lungs to the op posite side where it could be felt through the skin with the finger His tusks although not as large as re ported were of good size His body measurements were slightly larger than those of Jumbo Miss Clara Folzsky is a Russian whose forte is aerial naviga tion The czarina recently honoredMiss Polzsky with

our Act r neat e nd There Is No Tendency Among The to Take Up Household Service for a Livelihood FEW ITALIAN DOMESTICS Why is it was asked of a re sponsible Italian resident says the Chicago Daily News that the continued demand for good housemaids the girls of your country rarely take up a life of do mestic service upon coming to Airier ca Irish German Swedish Scotch English and all other fair races of northern Europe send household ser wants to us but with the exception of an occasional French governess nursery maid or cook one hardly ever sees a woman of Latin origin in a menial position in the American home I dont know how to account for it he answered except on the ground of there being fewer unmar rigid women among immi grants The young women of north ern Europe do not hesitate to come to America alone in search of work or of adventure but Italian girls are less daring Single men or the fathers of families may come out alone but unmarried girls never Observe the young married couples too The husbands as you see will work at anything they can get to do breaking stone or digging streets hut keep their small homes jealous ly Neither wives sisters nor daugh tern are ever seen out of the home to tMi in any employment that takes them away from the family circle for more than ten hours out of the 24 It is true that a few take up the more quickly acquired trades after coming here and invariably they are found to be quick reliable and Indus trious but the Italian immigrant is especially alert in all that concerns the welfare of his women folks and is averse to sending them into the un known world of strange houses in a strange land But for that matter even in Italy the natives do not take as naturally to domestic service as do the poorer classes in more northerly countries They like the independent money earning such as pursuing small crafts in the home peddling etc the women immigrants set about to earn a living in America they tale to hawking small wares from door to door or to husband or some female friend with a hand organ through the city streets or suburbs in preference occupation that separates them from their families Von seldom or never see them going about singly and rarely does an Italian man or woman resort to dishonesty or to make a livelihood Ft is true that the men often discover a tend ency to speculation and even to gam bung as soon as a little money has been saved The race is absolutely in the second generation hut there is no tendency in it toward household service as a means of money It almost invariably em ploys itself in clerking in metal work engraving and cutting of pre cious stones and other industrial lines This I take it is to be ac counted for by the remarkable with which the Italians assimilate the free educational advantages here VOLTS AND A COOL MIND Marvelon Kacape from Kleetroen Throneh Retention of Wit and Five thousand volts of electricity were hurled into E L Price an elec trician at the Edison company plant and he walked over to the City hospital to tell em about it It proved to be the tallest thing in the line of a story of that kind the doctors had ever heard says the Cincinnati

the wire away from em with my other hand If I had of course my life would have been snuffed out quickern a match in a gale at that time I might have done so for the shock as it was was enough to make the oldest hand at the busi ness forget for the instant all he knew Its the old question of keeping your presence of mind no matter what happens Let a person one part of whose body conies in contact with a live wire of whatever strength keel presence of mind enough not to touch the wire with another part of body like the other hand or a foot or any part of his body and he will most generally get away alive This oT course is providing theres somebody else around or within call to come and knock the wire away with a club And the rescuer under such should not try to push the wire away for this may cause him to get fastened to it himself It should always be knocked away with a blow any kind of a blow This gives only contact and the momen hen of the blow sends the wire away from the club the

Actual Cash Value of nrniJ- uy Good Ronds In Positive The cause of road improvement will undoubtedly receive a great Impetus by the recent meeting of the Naiiunal Good Roads association at liatTalo where object lessons were given on the exposition grounds of the latest and best methods of making high ways What the average American farmer needs to be thoroughly con vinced of is that good roads in the long run are much cheaper than bad roads even though the first cost of construction may add somewhat to his taxes It has been the of increased taxes that has caused the rural dis tricts of New York state for example to solidly oppose all plans for road improvement in the past involving in creased appropriations of public funds They have preferred to stand by the old wretched and inadequate workingout system because it seemed to be the cheapest arid easiest Considering how profitless the business has Tiecn in many parts of the country for years it is not strange that the farmers should wish to avoid any added drains upon their resources but when it is clearly dem onstrated as it can be that new and improved systems of roadmakn actuall3 add to the value of farms and the profits of agriculture the case will be different Figures bearing on these very points have been published repeatedly show ing that the increase of carrying capacity made possible by good roads and the decrease in the wear and of horses and vehicles far more than offset the expenditure called for by the improvements The gain in actual cash values is large positive and beyond all question And beyond all are the added pleasure and sats faction of riding and driving over smooth wellkept roads a gain which money cannot measure or express Leslies Weekly That t ouchec tIle nut I hi circumstances instantaneous
