Lincoln's First Vote.
In McClure's Macazino for Decem
ber is printed a facsimile of Lincoln's
fust vote, alone with tho following
account of tlio circumstances under
which it was cat :
Lincoln's first vote was cast ut
Now Salem, "iu tho Clary's Grove
precinct," August 1, 1H31. At this
Wiion he aided Mr. Graham, who
was one of the clerks. Iu tho early
days in Illinois, elections were con
ducted by tho viva voce method.
The neonlo did try voting by ballot.
but tho experiment was unpopular,
It required too mucU book lurniu,
aud in uo viva voce iuot.hod of
voting was restored, iuo judges
nn.l elnrkj sat at a table with the
poll-book before them. Tho voter
walked up and announcod tuo candi
date of his choice, and it was record
ed in his presenco. There was no
ticket noddling, and ballot-box stuff
ing was impossible. To this biuiple
systom we are indebted lor the roc
of Lincoln's first vote. . .
Lincoln's first vote for President
was not cast until the next ytfar (No
vember 5, 1832), when he voted for
Ed. Post. Your coirevMn lo-it,

Mrs. Mury Alexander, of Piper
City, III., writes: "My health had
been failing for seven yeirs. The
doctor pronounced my case 0110 of
bronchial catarrh. I could get no
hope of recovery from any of my
physicians. My friends urged me to
take Pe ru na. At this tituo I was
coutined to my bed. After taking
one bottle of Po-ru-ua I was able to
sit up and the swelling on my body
and limbs began to disappear. When
I had finished the third bottle I was
entirely well and felt as well as ever
in my life. lean heartily say that
I believe Pe-ru-na saved my life."

Washington, D. C, Dec. HI, Ki.-.
I arrived in this city 011 Saturday
ufternoou. This city liko ull others
has its peculiarities. Thoy still use
horso curs here, but by tho help of
God and Negroes working on Sun
day, they hope to have their cars
moved by electricity until Jan. 1, '!ti.
Thoy use gas to light the streets in
Washington. It soems strange that
tho capita of a great nation 1:1 this
advauoed stage of civilization should
not be lighted by electricity. The
reason is plain. Tho control of the
city affairs is entirely iu tho hands
of congress and every congressman
gets his bill every month ri reiptnl.
It is not my purpose to find fault
with everything I hoo iu this city,

to do so. Lot US dovote a little tiun
