WHITE HOUSE ETIQUETTE.
The Unwritten Laws Which Govern

When the president and hi wife drive
out the president site on the right hand

If there atv others In the carrtiig
whether ladles or gentlemen, they must
Hit with their backs to the horses.
When Mr. Cleveland was Hint married
sho tried tho experiment of placing her
not her opposite the president and her
self In the presidential landau, but the
people laughed at It so Immoderately
and professed to think Mr. Folsom (as
she was then) to be the maid, that It
was speedily dropped. Whoiv the pres
ident's wife drives alone she alts In the
rlght-hiu.d corner the place of honor.
The lady of the White House cannot
set foot within those splendid houses
In Washington whose flagstaffs mark
the foreign embassy or legation. She
oould not go without the president, and
as an embassy or legation I techni
cally a port bf the country tt repre
sents, the president could not go so
that she never sees the Inside of a
diplomatic, house as long as she pre-
Ideai at the executive mansion. The
president dines only at cabinet houses,
and his wife cwinot dine anywhere
without him. President Arthur dined
with judges of the Supreme Court and
with senators, but aa he had no wife,
the whole system waa very much sim
plified for him. The president' wife
may. If she chooses, go to luncheon
where there are no gentlemen, or to
teas, both being regarded aa strictly
Informal; but the danger of giving- of
fense by accepting one Invitation and
refusing another is so great that It la
