Uad- ley. attractive St. Louis widow nnd mother of two daughters. Some day she may elect to become. Mrs Barkley. Then, again, she may not. All this has caused a lot of speculation. H gels Bargley out of bi'd at midnlshl now and then to neny a rumor lhat lie Is ensiigcd is about, to become engaged or Is about to marry Mrs. Hnctlcy. It keeps reporters meeting' the plane every lime he goes somewhere out of Washington. Now the "vecp," ns he culls him- sen. is n fun loving fellow, always nnli-k witli a joke.
