Charleston is preparing to do full hon

ever be regret for the cause of the
postponement of the original date, it
is far better that the president should
make his visit now. The weather will
be only such as can fur

and blush their prettiest, the soft
breezes will be blowing, the sun shin

and shake their jeweled crowns and
the president will rejoice to be alive
and an honored guest in such a land.
Charleston, South Carolina and the
south will do full honor to themselves
by honoring the chief executive of this
favored nation, and when Theodore
Roosevelt, the man, has once tasted
of the quality of Charleston hospitali

their presence that he is the welcome

“CAP” JOYNER AT THE EXPOSI
Chief Joyner, of the Atlanta fire de

fire fighter, has made arrangements
for “Atlanta Day” at the Exposition.
Atlanta is going to make a great day
of it, and not only Charleston, but all
the country along the route will be
aware that Atlanta is out for a time.
Mayor Mims and his council, all the
heads of city departments, a platoon
of police, the soldiery, horse and foot,
a detachment of firemen, with the fa
mous drum corps, and about 200 citi
zens wearing uniform hats, will pa
rade the streets of Charleston to the
Exposition grounds, where reception
ceremonies will lie held in the Audito
rium. It goes without saying that At
lanta and all Georgia will be received
with open arms by the Charlestonians.
Their hospitality is ever green and
abounding and now they are on their
mettle as never before. It is to be
hoped that every citizen of Atlanta
who can do so will join the happy
band. Georgia owes something to
Charleston and South Carolina, and

Th i was once a horse that was
used to pull around a sweep which
lifted dirt from the depths of the
earth. He was kept at the busi

he became blind and too stiff for
further use. Bo he was turned
into the pasture and left to crop
the grass without any one to dis
turb him. But the funny thing
about the old horse was that every
morning after grazing awhile, he
would start on a tramp, going
round and round in a circle just
as he had been accustomed to do
for so many years. He would
keep it up for hours, and people
often stopped to look at the ani

to his head to make him walk

when there was no need of it.

From our regular correspondent.
Washington, D. C., April 2. —
The President's partiality for wri
ters and fighters has been the basis
of endless good-natured gossip.
The humblest private who served
in the Rough Rider regiment with
Col. Roosevelt can always count
upon not only being cordially
welcomed at the White House, but
upon being familiarly called by
names and manages not to forget
them. More prominent fighters,
although I suppose Gen. Miles
must be excepted, are also always
warmly greeted by the President.
But some think that he likes the
writers even better than he does
the fighters, especially those of
them who areola friends. One of
the latter was his guest several
days ago, and right royully—l
guess chummily is better —was he
treated. It was Hamlin Garland,
who knows the cattle ranches and
cowboys quite as well, if not better
than the President does, and likes
them equally as well. As the two
men have many ideas in common
it is certain that it was a delight
ful visit to both of them. The
President recently said that one
of the reasons he liked fighters
and writers was that he could be
friendly with them without being
asked for official favors.
