August Kohn in News and Courier.
Trenton, March 21.-Senator Till
man is getting along as well as can
be expeeted. This is as much as can
be said at this time. He has gone
to Atlanta to rest. Rest is what he
needs. Rest and quiet are his phy
sics and either is hard for him to
Exactly two years ago Senator
Tillman had a stroke of apoplexy.1
He recovered in every way and went
abroad from May to Oktober. He
has been active until just a month
ago, when he suffered from what
might be called a second stroke of
apoplexy. The expectation, a month
ago, was that he was in extremis and
that he would die as a result. News
papers printed L , obituary and
many others had sketches of his life
and editorials in type.
Today I saw and talked with Sen
ator Tilman for a long time and he
is keenly alive to public affairs, fret
ful that he cannot be in the fighting
and irritated that -he is not able to
run the pigs as he did in former
days. He looks a little tired, but
otherwise his bodily and facial ap
pearanee is good. His complexion is
iclear, just a bi.. -addy, his eye clear
and his skin smooth. He talks lit
tle-that is compared with his pre
disposition to do most of the talk
ing. I|[e reads nothing. He can read,'i
but he does not wish to tax his mind.
He has everything read to him; yes,
everything. Mrs. Tilman has to ido
the reading; he prefers it and she
reads 'to him every day. The News
and Courier, The New York Sun and
the Washington Post.
Dr. Babcock Encouraged.
Dr. J. W. Babeock, who has for
years been- Senator Tilman's close
personal friend and in whose opin
ions he has the utmost confidence
came over to Trenton today to see
Senator Tillman. He wenit on with
him to Augusta and exmined him
earefully, and in the opinion of Dr.
Babcock, Senator Tillman's conidi
tion is aHl tirat can be expected, aind
is reaJily better than he ever expect
ed to see. Dr. Babcoek now thinks
thiat Senator Tillman had what is
-ealled an effusion; an escape of fluid
producing pressure upon the ,brain
cells. Whether that fluid was blood
o~r serum is hard to say; if blood,
the quantity was small, and has been
absorbed,* and there was little damage
done to the brain, and what Senator
UIillman ihimseLf calls a "lesion''
was evidently muelh slighter than the
doctors who sajv him at first consid
ered it to be.
While the senator acts slowly, his
vocabulary i's good, hi's ldcomotion
.decidedly better than was to be ex
pected; he is weak and so'mewhat
nervous, but much is yet to be hop
ed for in the way of restoration, pro
vided he can be kept away from
worry and annoyances.
Can't Think Fast Enough.
Senator Tillman was complaining
to me that he was not satiesfied with
the way he thought; 'he figured that
his mind was not acting quickly and
--that he could not talk or think as
rapidly as die wished. Dr. Babcock
ssunred him that if he thought and
spoke quickly tliat it would mnean a
quiaek flow of blood to t'he 'head, and
the very slowness of which 'he com-~
.plained was nature taking time to
do its work properly and slowly. The
slow fow of .blood to the brain, it
was drged, was giving thxe physical
side a chanee, and after Dr. Bab
cock's full explanation Senator Till
unan was much better satisfied, but
Apoplexy has two bad effects:
Pressure arnd destruction. From the
~pressu're Senator Tillmgn is recover

t,ion of brain eells are very muleh less
than appeared at first, in fact it re

To Atlanta for Quiet.
Senator Tillmnan has gone to At
lanta to get quiet and rest. He is
seccompainied by his de'voteil wife,
and they expect to remain at a san
itarium as long as 'Senator Tillman
finds it restful there. Dr. Babeock
suggested to Senator Tillman that
iwherever he .went or whatever he
planned to go not 'to think of going
-to any mountainous or high coantry.
They were talking about various sea
level places Senator Tillman might
visit. Dr. Babcock urged a trip to
London, and theo] Senator Tillmnan.

Interest in Cannon's Defeat
Senator Tillman's first question
this morning was about the fight in
Washinogton against Cannon and Can
noniism. He was perfectly delight
ed with the news of the result of the
fight, and said that it meant two
things, first, that the Democrats can
and will stand together, and that
the Democratic party is opposed to
what Cannonism stands for. Seina
tor Tillman asked if all the South
Carolina congressmen were on hand
to join in the fight, and when told
that they were, said: "And was Pat
terson able to be there'
Senator Tillman said that Champ
Olark, the Democratie leader, was a
man of brain, and he was pleased
with his work. Senator Tillman was
doubtful of the wisdom of trying to
declare Cannon's .seat valeant. It
may prove polities to show -the coun
try that the Democrats are mlot re
sponsible for Cannon, but unless this
be the result, Senator Tillman thinks
the Democrats had better quit when
they adopted the Norris resolution.
As to Calhoun Speech.
Senator Tillman is exceedingly
sorry that he could inot have deliv
eed an address on Calhoun at the
time of the unveiling of the Calhoun.
monument at Washington. Senator
Tillman said he had been working on
this particular address for some time,
and said he would have liked very
much to have given his views on Cal
houn. It would have been high
praise of the man, intense admira
tion for the character and intellefet,
anid Mrs. Tilman added, personal
purity, but it would have been crit
ical and unsympathetic of the views
and doctrines of60alhoun.
Has Completed Reminiscences.
Senator Tillman has recently com
pleted a series of personal remini
scences. They deal largely of the
times about 1876, and Senator Till
man 'discussed their final preparation
'and 'distribation, and he hopes soon
to be able to do more of this kind of
Senator Tillmani was very much
conenned about Senator Daniel, of~
Virginia. He expressed his uttee
disgust at what he -understood was
the the Virginia assembly holding
over to see 'him die. He thought
Senator Daniel the greatest Virgin
ian of the day, and it was rather ug
ly, as he viewed it for the general as
sembly of the State to "hang around'
waiting for a .Senator to die.''
Loves His Farm.
"Now Joe, don't forget to put the
sheep in the rye. Don't you forget
it, but 'do it right away.'' That was
the parting injunction of Senator
Tillman to his old colored servant
whio had brought the luggage on the
Pullman. -Tire old colored man weet
away smiling and promising to see
that the sheep had a Sunday frolie
in the rye patch.
There is a point to this little story.
Since his return from Europe Sen
ator Tillman 's interest iw farming
has returned with intensely renewed
activity. When at Trenton he has
devoted himself early and3 late to the
management of alil the petty details
of plantation life. A couple of
weeks ago, when he realized that he
was recovering from his 'illnese, an
overwhlelming desire to be back on
the farm seized him in spite of the
advice of his 'doctors, against the
wishes of his family, he returned to
Trenton last week. Once on the farw
he threw himself into the atctiwe man
agement of his place with his old
ardor and vim. In a few days, how
ever, he himself was the first to rec
ognize that he was overtasking his
nervous and physical force, and that
his advisers, who had couns;eled cau
tion, were correct. This explains the
sudden resolution to visit the sam
tarium in Atlanta, where he has for
merly secured rest, a dietary and
treatment suitable to 'his require
ments. But in leaving Trenton he
could not forget the sheep and the
From Augusta he dictated4 a letter
te' Mr. Knight to see that the as

and pl:mted at once, aiccording to
his directions. Senator Tillman has

A legitimate query is whether Sen

Letters of Sympathy.
'Senator Tillman is in receipt of
rery many letters of sympathy ain!d
nquiry. He likes this. He had a
dlipping from the editorial page of
Cihe News and Courier expressing
;he hope that he would soon be re
,tored to health. He appreciated
;his expression very much, and said
.t was a real delight to see such
hings. Just ibefore leaving home
ie had gotten a letter from a la-dy
iow living in Washington, but for
nerly of Charleston. Senator Till
nan would have liked to have e
racts from this kind letter publish
,d, but MNs. Tillman did not approve
ind what she says is now orthodox.
rhe letter is from a splendid Char
eston woman-the daughter of a be
fore-the-war govrnor, and she ex
presses .thes incere hope that Sena
;or Tillman will soon be quite well
ind how much she and other Caro~in
ans pride themselves in the ability

Laughs at Doctor's Jokes.
iSenator Tillman has by no means
Lost his sense of humor and he
[aughed heartily oveir several inxi
lents, Dr. Babcock recalled in con
aection with itheir European trip.
fhere were a lot of th-ese stories,
ut here is a short one:
.Senator Tillmain, had been ordered
:o remain in the lowlands. Dr. Bab
oIek we:t up one of the Alps, and
Wr. and Mrs. Tillman went out on
>ne of the Swiss lakes. Before go
.ng on the lake trip Senator Tillman
sked Dr. Babcock what was the
xerman word for steamboat. Dr.
Babeock told him to say: ''Damf
>oot." This was about all the Ger
nan Senator Tillman knew. He
;tarted out on the trip, went on
:rains, made very good connections,
bnd was on (his way back to head
juaxters. He was puzzled over the
;chedules, and finally seeing an offi
er he tapped him on the shoulder
'Mein Terr, what times does this
-ailroad strike the Damfboot?" The
juestion was so funny, even to Sen
tor Tillman, that he lhad to laugh
ver it. But the got the information
ind the "Damfboot."
