A Naive Question.
Speaking recently on the-text
Ezek. IS: 20, "Havel anypleasuro
at all that the wicked should die?
saith thc Lord," a minister told
the following story of President
Lincoln : Daniel J. Morrell took
the mother of ^a'runaway soldier
to see President Lincoln in Wash
ington, to plead for the life of her
darling boy, who had been court
martialed ancl was to be shot in a
few clays. Lincoln first apbraided
my friend for subjecting him to
such an ordi. J, but the poor wo
man was already in the room,
sobbing as if her heart would
break, and there was no help for
it. Lincoin conducted her to a
seat and asked a great many
questions, learned that the boy
had returned to work at Johnstown,
and provided for his mother and
sister from his earnings, giving as
an excuse for leaving the army,
that it was lying idle on the banks
of the Potomac, and he knew it
could not move until spring. The
President mused a few moments,
apparently undecided what action
to take. Even The woman held her
breath for the time, and awaited
in silence the word which was to
rejoice her or doom her to misery.
"Well, I don't believe it would
do him any good to shoot him, do
you, madam?" asked Abraham of
the mother, in antone of inquiry so
uatural that one would have
thought he was actually in doubt
upon the subject himself, and
wanted the opinion of the person
who knew the boy best.
Tho mother ^ was speechless.
During the inquiry the President
had been rolling a small strip of
paper into a ball. He handed this
to Mr. Morrell, saying, "Read that
when you get out, Daniel, but
mind you don't tell Stanton."
Mr. Morrell beckoned the woman
to the door, placed her in the
carriage, read the slip, and ordered
the coachman to drive at once to
thc office of thc Provost Marshal.
Hero is what he found in that tiny
strip: "P. M. Washington-Send

The Senator's Remains Removed
Twice in One Day.
NEW YORK, Juno ll.-An
Asheville. N. C.. special says : The
widow of the late Senator Zobulon
Vance came to Asheville on Wed
nesday and had the body of the
Senator moved from the family
plot in the cemetery, where it was
originally buried, to the plot she
had bought the day the Senator
Mr. Charles N. Vance, son of the
Senator, and.his private secretary
during his life, arrived in
Asheville Saturday, and had the
body again disinterred and re
buried in the family plot.
Young Vance declares that it
was his father's dying request that
his body should be buried in this
plot, which the Senator had
bought and beautified during his
life, and that his first wife's body,
young Vance's mother, should be
placed beside him.
Mr. Vance says he is determined
that his father's wishes shall be
obeyed, if the law has to be invoked
in order to carry them out.
The plot of ground to which Mrs.
Vance had the Senator's body
removed is on the hilltop, the
most beautiful and commanding
spot in the cemetery, and her ob
ject in placing the Senator's body
was the fitness of the site for an
erection of a great monument to
the Senators's memory by the peo
ple of the State.
Mrs. Vance is a Catholic, and
when it was found that the Senator
was dying a priest was about to
perform the last sacrament when
Mr. Charles N. Vance interfered.
Senator Vance was a Protestant,
and it is said he requested that
none of the rites of the Catholic
Church be allowed over him.
Young Vance said he would per
mit his father's body to be removed
to the plot secured by Mrs. Vance,
provided his first wife's body be
placed beside the Senator's but
this Mrs. Vance declined to- agree
to. It is not known what steps
Mrs. Vance will take when she
learns what has been done.

A bottle of lime water in the
house is a great convenience. To
make it, put about a pound of un
stacked lime in a large bowl; pour
overv this three quarts of boiling
water. Let it stand for ten minutes
then stir with a stick. Place the
bowl in a cool place for eight or
ten hours. At the end of that time
pour off the clear water, letting
the sediment remain in the bottom
of the bowl. Bottle the clear water
and keep in a convenient place.
A tablespoonful of this lime
water may be added to a glass of
milk to be given to a patient with
an acid stomach. In case of burns
cover the bumed parts with a
cloth wet in lime water.

She is the girl who is anxious
to have you join a party which is
to be "a dead secret," and which
because people are very "ree and
easy makes you uncomfortable and
wish you were at home.
She is the girl who tries to in
duce you, "just for fun," to smoke
a cigarette or take a glass of wine ;
and you don't know, and possibly
she doesn,*, that many of the
sinneis of to day committed their
first sins "just for fun."
She is the girl who persuades
you that to stay at home and care
for and love your own, help mother
and to have your pleasures
at home and where the home peo
ple can see them, is stupid and
tiresome, and that spending the
afternoon walking up and down
the street looking at the windows
and people is "just delightful."
She is the girl that persuades
you that slang is witty, that a
loud dress that attracts attention
is "stylish," and that your own
simple gowns are dowdy and un
desirable. She doesn't know,
nor do you, how many woman
have gone to destruction because
of their love for fine clothees.
She is the girl who persuades
you that to be on every familiar
terms with three or four young
men is an evidence of your charms
and fascination, instead of being,
as it is, an outward, visible sign
of your perfect folly.
The is tho girl who persuades
you that it is a very smart thing
to be referred to as a "gay girl."
She is very, very much mistaken.
And of all others, she is the girl
who, no matter how hard she may
try to make you believe in her, is
to be avoided.
