one of his townsmen was in Wash

better judge of horses was not to be
found in the country. Stanton's re
ply was: "Send him in to see me
and I will give him a place."

was presiding over the senate, and as
he proceeded to the hall of the House

was Marshal of the Day Hawley.
Drawing his sword, he made a pro

with much pomposity:

Editor THE APPEAL-
The one hundredth annivcrsaiy of
the birth of William Lloyd Garrison

me is an event which should not onlj
deeply stir and interest the eoloieri

joying the fruits of Garrison's work,
and we should not fail td keep before
to mankind and the repub-
Booker T. Washington.
