1 KNEW LINCOLN IN YOUTH f
l Aged Lady Now Living in California Recalls
( Times of Long Ago f
Twenty miles out from Los An
geles, Cal., on the scushoro road, In
a humble, four-roomed house, Is an
old woman who Abraham Lincoln was
very fond of and who ho tcaslngly
nnmed "Quinine" 70 yenrs ago, when,
,n store clerk In New Salem, he board
ed for $1 a week tinder her father's
Mrs. Vienna Lster has Just cele
brated her SOtli birthday. A stately
old woman, she Is still frco of step
and straight of vision, though her
memory has begun to fnlter, recollec
tion to wnver and down tho long vista
of years nnd day-marks of her girl
hood nro blurred.
This long-ago friend of Lincoln sits
In her son's home nt Htmtctt nnd tells
mony stories of tho Grcnt Commoner.
With n qunlnt tenderness comes tho
thought that this Is the cousin, tho
girlhood friend, of fair Ann Itutledge,
tho dead love of Lincoln's outli.
For twenty jenrs, "nllko to fortune
and to fame unknown," the recipient
of Lincoln's whlmslcnl nickname has
tnaitd her homo In tho whitewashed
cottngo In tho little town of Burnett.
Seventy-five years ago, In the sum
mer of 1830, Lincoln released himself I
from parental care and started out to
make his own way. This was soon
after his people has removed to Illin
ois, and the futuro President was then
a gaunt, tall Ind of llttlo more than
21. Tho following year, Just after his
famous flntbout trip to Now Orleans,
he made his second and "pormnnent"
appearance In Now Salem, on tho
banks of the Sangamon river. Its
population at that time probably did
not exceed soventy-flvo men, women
nnd children. It was ono of the many
came to us, and my mother charged
him about $1 n week for his bed and
Tho "us girls" referred to by Mrs.
Lystcr were elovon In number (rein
forced by ono brother), and a right
merry crowd for a log cabin homo, it
may bo guessed. In tho order of their
ages they were: Betsy Cameron,
nicknamed "Isabcllo" by Lincoln;
Vienna, whom tho futuro President
preferred to nddress as "Quinine,"
perhaps because at 17 she could find
a sharp thrust to answer his teasing
with; Thomas lono brother In n wild
erness of girls, called "Tarn O'Shan
tor" by Lincoln, and Nancy, Jane, Mar
tha, Sarah, Sallna nnd Sorcna (tho
twins), FJIza, Caroline and Mnrgaret.
What clerk to-day would walk five
miles dally between his storo and his
hoarding house? Lincoln did It for
months, striding from "Parson" Cam
eron s log cnbln In tho early mornings
to Denton Offutt's genernl store, and
back n gul n nt dusk.
Ho loved oxerclso In tho open, ho
was proud may bo at tlmo a trifle
boastful of his physical strength nnd
grent powers of endtirnncc, but aside
from that, ono cannot help wondering
If John Cameron's merry houseful of
buxom dnughters may not have been
a keener Inspiration for those dnlly
trudges than love of Naturo and of
Mrs. Lystcr remembers "Abe" strid

Tar Western Stato of Illinois,
Tho ensuing ilvo yenrs, 1831 to 183C,
cover ono of tho most Interesting porl
ods of Lincoln's early life, whon ho
learned tho lessons of lovo and death
and to rlso above tho bitterness of do
spalr. It was during this period that
Mrs. Lystor (then Vlonna Cameron)
know him, received nt his hands the
odd nlcknnmo of "Qulnlnr," and bo
camo n quiet observer of his court
ship of her beautiful cousin, Ann Rut
ledge. Ono of tho foremost men of tho
Now Snlom neighborhood was tho Itov.
John Cameion, Mrs. Lloyd's futhor.
Ho preached In tho Presbyterian
church on Sundays, and, nftor tho
custom of those Hturdy times, turnod
a shrowd oyo to business during tho
woek. Ho It was, Indeed who, with
his wife's brothor, tho James Itutledge
montloned by historians In connection
with tho ItiBtrum of Lincoln's llfo, laid
out tho town slto of Now Salem.
At tho tlmo of Lincoln's ndvont In
Now Salom "Parson" Cameron with
his wlfo and family cloven dnughters
nnd ono son had his homo In tho
proverbial log houso of tho oerlod, a
fow miles from town on tho hanks
of tho Sangamon stream, close to tho
Ilutledgo & Cnmoron mill. nis mi
ter combined tho business of sawing
timber and grinding grist. Tho mill,
on a dam that Jutted out a fow hun
dred foot Into the rlvor, was ono of
tho last landmarks of tho locality to
crumblo away Llncobi for a short
tlmo was In chargo of It.
Mrs. LyBtcr does not recall tho day
that Lincoln first camo to her father's
homo to board, but rofuronco to what
,meagor data is extant Indicates that
It was In tho wlnlor or spring of 1833.
"Lincoln was a great, big, hulking fel
low then," says Mis. LyBtor, "full to
'the chin with fun and always playing
droll pranks on us girls. Ho was a
clerk In Donton OfTut's storo when he
tho $l-a-week board, had taken him
In and mndo him ono of themselves.
"Lincoln, or 'Abo,' as wo ono and nil
soon camo to call him was a member
of tho family as long as he stayed
with us," Mrs. Ljster says. "To him
my mother wns 'Aunt Polly, " a fact

"Lincoln," bsjb Mrs. Lystor, recal
ling thoso raro days, "was a remark
ablo young man for pranks. Ho had
a nlcknnmo for ench one of us girls,
but I can only romember a few. Ono
of his trlckH was to pluck his friends
by their ears ho was always doing
that. I havo heard my father speak
of seeing 'Abo standing nt n corner,
or In tho road, tolling ono of his droll
stories or engaged In e.irnost discus
sion, nnd, at a climax In tho tnlo or
conversation, strotchlng out one of his
long arms, and gently pulling tho lis

Though so fond of his books It must
not bo supposed that he cared only
for work nnd sorlous study. Ho was
a social, sunny-tempered lad, as fond
of Jokes nnd fun as ho was kindly and
Industrious. Ills stopmotlior said of
him: "I can sny what scarcely ono
mother in a thousand can say, Abo
nover gavo mo u cross word or look,
nnd novor refused to do anything I

FATHER WAS NOT PARTICULAR.
Anyway, What Was One Michael,
More or Less?
Tho father of a largo family In Bos
ton took his fourteenth child to the
church to bo christened.
On entering tho church, and while
preparations were being made, tho
priest asked him by what name he
would like to call the child.
Tho father said ho had forgotten
1 1 -
tho nnmo tho family had chosen, so
tho priest mentioned several, which
were not tho right ones. At last tho
father agreed to call It Michael, so
when the ceremony wns finished nnd
tho peoplo wcro leaving ho turned to
tho priest and said: "I don't know
what my wlfo will Bay, for wo havo

Conclusion of Absent-Minded Man

Daniel Drew was an exceedingly absent-minded

how to man ago his somewhat Illy-assorted

must get some underdrnwers." (Sho
spoke of courso In tho Becluslon of
their own apartments.)
"Yes, my dear," was tho roply; and
that night Daniel camo homo with a
bundlo containing undershirts. Under
shirts ho hnd in great abundance, but
of tho article his wlfo had suggested
his buying tho specimens on hand
woro almost past wearing. Tho good
lady's patlenco was exhausted. When
noxt she prepared clean ilothes for
him sho laid out two undorshlrts and
no underdrawcrs. When ho had
dressed and gono out sho found evi
dences of his having donned both gar
ments. Among that day's Items In his note
book tho following was subsequently
"Tho underwear of tcday Is not
what It used to be. Underdrawcrs aro
mado much too small In tho legs so
much so, In fact, that ono has to silt
them up to make them go on. They
fit loosely about tho waist and are not
an aid to a man's sitting down. In
fact they seem not nt all suited to tho
needs of tho human frame." Llppln
