Why Many of Them Were Dated
From the War Department.
Surprise Is often expressed by very
Intelligent people that so large a pro
portion of President Lincoln's most im
portant' telegrams and some of his let
ters are dated from the war depart
ment Instead of the executive mansion
and none of them from the navy, treas
ury or other administrative bureaus.
This is generally deemed a very singu
lar fact, and from it writers have
plausibly drawn the conclusion that
Lincoln personally liked the secretary
of war better than any of the other
cabinet officers. While this Indeed ap
pears to have been true, It does not nec
essarily so follow. He certainly held
Mr. Seward In hIgh regard, yet he sel
dom went to the state department.
In the circumstances It was not at all
singular. The explanation Is easy. War
was the business of that time, and Lin
coln's eyes were always bent to the
army, especially when great military
events were impending. He habitually
haunted the adjacent war department
and army headquarters, where abode
General Halleck, his military adviser,
for news and views. Head and heart
were strenuously concentrated on the
fight, wherever it might be. HIs fertile
brain saw, too, the critical points In the
game oftentimes far more clearly than
some of his so called "ablest generals."
He not only wished to know what was
going on In the field, but performed his
own part nobly. In the heat of action
or at crucial moments his orders, sug
gestions and inquiries were fired of!
spontaneously from wherever he might
be at the moment, and at such periods
e was generally "over at the war de
partment" with Mr. Stanton. That Is
the chief reason why so many of his
dispatches are dated at that depart
ment and not because he perhaps held
Stanton in higher esteem than the sec
retary of the navy or state or treasury.
If a man asks you a question you
can't answer, make your answer so
long and shadowy that he will be glad

A DROLL CHARACTER
"COUNSELOR" NOLAN WAS A WIT
OF THE NEW YORK BAR.
Somne of the Quaint Sayings of This
Picturesque Legal Light, Who For
Years Kept Gotham's Judges and
In a book entitled "The Barrister"
Charles Frederick Stansbury has
brought together the best of the anec
dotes of Tom Nolan, who was known
popularly among members of the New
York bar as "Counselor Nolan." For
many years the counselor kept judges
and lawyers of New York laughing,
and at political conventions he was one
of the Important, If not serious, attrac
tions. The counselor was himself sul
generis. His drollery was individual.
Some characteristic stories from Mr.
Stansbury's collection are here set
At a political convention a friend
"Isn't it strange, counselor, that
your friend Croker, who is such a
mighty power down your way, does not
get a nice political job for himself?"
The barrister drew himself up, look
Ing his inquisitor over from the corner
of his eye, and then replied, with se
verity: "'Tis a peanut brain you have,
Clancy, to ask me that. Is there anny
job he hasn't got?"
Judge Horace Russell told the follow.
Ing story: Nolan once had a client
whose name was Mrs. Moriarity. After
her case had been placed upon the
calendar Mrs. Moriarity appeared ev
ery day in Nolan's office with her elev
en witnesses. Finally the case reached
the top of the calendar, and Nolan was
on hand to try it. The opposing coun
sel asked for a postponement. Nolan
fought the postponement with great
eloquence, laying much stress upon the
fact that Mrs. Morlarity had been put
to enormous trouble and expense of
coming every day to his offce with her
eleven witnesses. Judge Dugro, who
was sitting, was not convinced ap
parently by Nolan's perfervid oratory
and granted the adjournment. Then
the barrister arose.
"Your honor," said he, "has seen fit
to grant a postponement of the case,
and, while I humbly submit to the rul
ing of the court, yet I would like to ask
your honor to do me a personal favor"
"Certainly, counselor, with pleasure,"
replied Judge Dugro. "What is It?"
"Go you to my office," thundered the
barrister, "and inform Mrs. Moriarity
that this case has been'postponed."
Witty and keen as Nolan was, he
once In awhile got the worst of an en
counter with a witness, as the follow
ing incident Illustrates:
The plaintiff, Mr. Foley, was suing
Mr. W. for damages sustained by care
lessness of defendant in allowing his
donkey' to escape from his stable and
trespass upon plaintiff's lawn. Foley is
in the witness box.
Barrister Nolan (for defendant)-You
say that Mr. W.'s animal caused all
this injury to your property?
Barrister-Where did you first see
Foley-Tied up in defendants stable.
Barrister-Where did you next see
Foley-On me premises.
Barrister-How do you know It was
the same donkey?
Foley (emphatically)-if I saw yez
tied up in the sthable, don't yez sup
pose I'd know yez whin yea got loose?
The barrister excused Mr. Foley.
It was in the old superior court be
fore Judge David McAdam and a jury,
and the barrister was trying a case on
behalf of the plaintiff In a negligence
suit against the Twenty-third street
crosstown railroad, which was con
trolled by Jacob Sharp, who afterward
gave the name of "boodle aldermen" to
the world. On rising to sum up on be
halt of his client Nolani launched forth
Into an attack upon Sharp, who had in
no manner appeared in the case. Rals
Ing his voice to a pitch that could be
heard by citizens in the City Hall park,
he concluded his peroration as follows:
"And who, gintlemen of the jury, Is
Jacob Sharp? I will tell you, gintie
men. He Is a man so lost to all his
sinse of ethics and the rights of man
that for the sake of palthry prospec
tive dividends he would run a railroad
up your spine and make ties out of
When the bar of the city of New
York gave a dinner at Delmonico's In
honor of former Justice Abraham B.
Lawrence on his retirement from the
bench, one of the remarks Nolan made
"There's Recorder Smyth. He's a
good judge, a toine judge, but he
thinks ivery man ought to go to prison
at least wance."
Nolan on one occasion was a candi
date for a municipal office, and in the
course of his canvass he asked a wo
man of his acquaintance If she would
use her influence In obtaining for him
her husband's vote. "Sure, I will,"
said the woman. "Are we not ever
lastingly grateful to you ever since you
got my husband off for stealing a gun?"
"No, no, my !ar woman," cried the
barrIster, "nob for stealing a gun, but
for the alleged stealing of a gun."
"Alleged be bothered," replied the
woman. "Come up stairs and I'll show
you the gun."
Once arguing a case in behalf of
lients who were sailors and while In
the midst of an exhaustive display of
nautical scholarship Nolan was Inter
rupted by the court:
"How comes It, counselor, that you
possess such a vast knowledge of the

Nolan, "that I came over In a hack?'

AN INCENSE PARTY.
Odd Etiquette of an interesting Jap
If you ever receive an invitation to a
Japanese incense party, accept It
promptly and thankfully. It has no
counterpart in our own social system
and is as merry and pleasant an affair
as can be imagined. The people of the
mikado's land have trained the nos
trils for generations the same as we
have trained the eye and ear, and they
display a skill which at times is star
tling to a westerner. There is an odd
etiquette to be followed in these social
affairs. For the twenty-four hours
preceding the party each guest must
avoid the use of anything which can
produce any odor whatever. Scented
soaps, perfumes, odorous foods and
even spices must be avoided. These
prevent the user from smelling accu
rately and also Interfere with the other
members of the party.
When you dress, be careful to put on
no garment that has been kept in the
neighborhood of camphor wood, tobac
co, bouquets, dried blossoms or scented
powder. When you reach the house of
your host, enter it as softly as you can
and as slowly as possible. This is to
prevent making a draft by the move
ment of your own body. Be equally
leisurely in opening and closing doors,
as a quick movement induces a sud
den rush of -Ir In the drawing room
the hostess .0s a series of Incenses,
usually four or five in number. Each
guest is allowed to take three sniffs of
each incense and must then jot down
its name and number upon a card.
Each of the- four or five Incenses is
burned two or three times, so that the
number of cards will vary from eight
to fifteen. At the end the cards are
laid out on the table, and the hostess
reads the names of the incenses em
ployed, which are checked off upon
the cards. The guest who has guessed
the largest number receives a pretty
prize, which is sometimes a silver or
bronze incense burner, statuette or
carving. Among the Japanese the aver
age woman guesses correctly about six
times in ten, while with the American
women the ratio is three in ten.-New

HAVE WOMF.N INTUITION
One Writer Says They Have Never
Shown It In Literature.
Literature Is the final expresstoa of
human thought. If women can lay
claim to a special faculty of intuition,
why do they not manifest it in their
writings? Intuition, if it means any
thing, means the faculty that gets
down to the germ of actions and char
acteristles and focuses external traits
into a central verity recognizable to
the general public. Now, there are
more female writers than male. No
woman poet has ever written an in
evitable line, a line that flashes spon
taneously out of the unknown and casts
an illuminating light upon the abyss.
Woman has added practically nothing
to our stock of familiar quotations.
Take down your Bartlett or your an
thology, and you may be surprised to
find that from Mrs. Browning to Mrs.
Meynell women have never coined a
phrase which has passed into the com
mon currency of speech. Mrs. Brown
ing has ind-ed written fine lines, but
nothing of hers can be said to have be
come a household word.
Nor has any woman novelist created
any character that is generally recog
nized as typical. George Eliot has
come closest with her Tito Melema
and Mrs. Poyser. You would appeal
only to the educated few if you de
scribed a person as a Tito or a Poyser.
But call a man a Don Quixote, a
Micawber, a Dogberry, a Falstaff, a
Colonel Newcome, a Bilfil, a Parson
Adams or Bob Acres, call a woman a
Mrs. Malaprop, a Becky Sharp, a Bea
trice, a Diana Vernon, a Meg Merrilies,
and even the illiterate will mentally
classify the individual as you wish him
or her to be classified.
"Ah, but," you fay, "in real life wo- I
men are the true intuitions. They size
up a man or a woman at a glance.
They are never mistaken when they
trust to their instincts."
I can only testify to my own experi
ence. I have not found that women's
snap judgments of character are im
bued with any special verity. They
form likes or dislikes quicker than a
man does because they are quicker on
the trigger of conjecture. They can
only be one of two things, right or
wrong. If time proves that they are
right, as they must be In 50 per cent of
cases, the right guess is remembered
and treasured np by the slower minded
man as an extraordinary instance of
intuition. The wrong guess Is forgot
