How the President Laves.
When the salary of the President of
the United States was $25,000 a year,
and without any allowance for enter
taining, the chief executitve, if without
private means, had .to “count his 1 pen
nies." For while d dollar went farther
in thase times there was no margin on
that salary for the occupant of the White
House House with ’his social obligations.
1 Now it is different. ,The President
may, if h$ chooses, and without special
evidence of niggardliness, “lay by” from
two-thirds to three-fourths of his income
of $75,000. What now helps him out
is the special allowance of $25,000 a year
for official entertainment hnd traveling
expenses, and the fact that every expense
of the executive mansions inelupding the
servants, flowers and automobiles, is de
frayed by the government—the total ex
penses including ahe President’s salary,
costing the government something over
$300,000 a year. The only team in this
total wHifh may seem extravagant and
susceptible of curtailment, without loss
q's dignity, is the cost of the White House

i« not an everyday occurrence, conse

Elisabeth, of Windinch-Oraetx is to wed
a certain Herr Eisneck, a Socialist dep
uty in the provincial government of Low
er Austria, has created something of a
sensation, even in these days w'.ten royal

In the veins of Princess Elisabeth
flows the bluest of the blue blood of Eu
rope. On the paternal side she is a
granddaughter of the late Emperor Fran
cis Jbseph. of Austria-Hungary, while on
her mother’s side she is the granddaugh
ter of the late King of the Belgians. Her
father was the unfortunate Crown Prince
Rudolf, whose tragic death stirred the
tvliole world. The Crown Prince and
the Oou tit ess Marie Vetsera were found
dead together at the hunting lodge, Meyer
iing, near Vienna, .the supposition being
that ’the Crown Prince had killed the
Countess and then committed suicide.
. Thh Arthduehess: tSUsabeth, who is
nbW in her forty-second year, has had
a career in keeping with the traditions
of the Austrian imperial family, whose
lives have been filled with sensation and
tragedy. In her girlhood days she was
a great favorite of her grandfather, the
Emperor Francis Joseph.
In 1002 the Arehdutliess was married
to Prince Otto Windisch-Graetx, who at
the time was a simple lieutenant in the
first regiment of Uhlans. although he be
longed to one of the oldest and most ar
istocratic German families. The old Em
peror, who had set his heart on making
a brilliant match for his favorite grand
daughter. opposed ttic marriage, but the
young Archduchess told him she wonld
either marry the man she loved or retire
to a convent.
The Emperor gave way and the mar
riage was celebrated in a magnificent
way after the Archduchess had renounced
her right of succession to the dual tiirsue
of Austria and Hungary. In considera
tion of her renunciation, necessary be
cause the lieutenant, though of an an
cient family, was poor and without a
royal title, the Emperor gave to the bride
securities valued at $1,000,000, a yearly
allowance of $250,000, jewels worth sl,-
000.000 which had belonged to the ill
fated Empress Elizabeth, a gold dinner
service, and several residences.
The bridal couple went to live at one
<«f tSie family seats of, the bridegroom at
Prague. A son was born to the couple
and for a time the union appeared to be
a very happy one. But scarcely a year
had passed when the ship of matrimony
began to encounter stormy seas. In the
latter part of 1003 sensational stories
appeared in print giving details of an
extraordinary scandal iji which Prince
Otto, his youthful bride, and a pretty
actress, of the opera at Prague were the
central figures. Vi , .
The Princess.'VdftcoiVling to -tlfif stories,
shot and seriously wounded the actress,
witii whom the Prince was having a
rendezvous. Strenuous efforts were made
ao keep the affair a secret, but the facts
came out and created a sensation in
Prague, where it was supposed the home
life of the young folks was ideal.
Through the efforts of royal relatives
the differences of the couple were patched
up. so .far as outward appearances went,
and the final breach did not come until
many years later. In 1911) Prince otto
filed a,separation bill in the divorce court
against .his wife, charging her with hav
ing lia'd improper relations with certain
navpU officers. The Archduchess, who
has, lived in comparative quiet for some
years, is believed to have saved a substan
