Why Did Booth Kill Lincoln
The Wilmington Messenger recently
published an article by Dr. G?'o. A
Foote, of Warrenton, N O . which pur
ports to give the true explanation ol the
murder of President Lincoln by John
According to the story told by Dr
Foote. Booth had a friend named Beall
who hail OOmmittod come crime against
the Federal government Booth was
devotedly attached to tins friend, ami
used every effort to have executive
clemency exeroiced In Bead's behalf
when the latter was condemned to die.
Powerful Influences were set to work
to secure a respite for the pri? nier and
a commutation of ins sentence, and
there appears?! to be anexoellent ohancc
that CXsasSthing might be done Mr
Lincoln ippeered to be affeeted by the
representations mad?? in Beall'c l-ehalf.
Suddenly the news w .v*. ??'read that the
execution of the prisoner had actually
taken place, having been ordered im?
mediately for "reasons of state "
ato?, the th -iv advanced by Dr
Foote and those who ts'liev.' In the ac?
curacy of lus narrative is that this treat*
ment of his friend by the President so
worked up.ui Booth's feelings that he
b?zcame insane, and his insanity na
turally t??ok the form of a desirt
Mr. Lin-oin by way of rereage. The
Charlest.ui News and C ?urier,comment*
ing upon the article by Dr Foot... says
that the story is not new to it, and
nrOOCSde to gire some interesting de?
tails that have come to its own know?
ledge. As the tale was told to the
News aud Courier. Booth was cmally
desirous to have the blood of Secretary
Seward; for it was nnderstood that the
arguments of. Seward had prevailed
upon the IVsident I immaiy
steps to terminate all etl'?rts for the
commutation of Beall's sentence The
strength of these effort* is to a consid?
erable extent explain?.1 by th
ment that Booth was engaged to i>,
msrried to the daughter of a New En
As lending continuation to the bell t
that the assassination of Lincoln was
due to veryditTerent motives from those
commonly assigned, our Charleston
contemporary refers to the fact that the
government has carefully withheld
Booth's diary from the public eye and
"has never allowed a line of it to come
to light. " The persons wli? told the
story to the News and Courier stated
that Booth's private papers contaiued
a full account of his feelings and mo?
tives with relation to the killing of the
President, and that this account was
exactly in the Hue with the narrative
of Dr. Foote. All this is exceedingly
absorbing. It would stem that enough
time has passed now f >r the g vernmeut
to let the Booth diary be read. En*
gland is noted for the tenaei
with which her government clings ?-.
"state secrets, " but even in England
the rnle is, we b?lieve, to publish most
of them after a generation has passed
away. It is hard to see what harm it
could do to publish Booth's own state?
ment of his motives for the ass.?-, na
tion. As the Messenger truly says,
there is no doubt that if the revelation
made in its columns and in th
the News and Courier had been made
by one of the great New York dailies
it would compel the attention that it
deserves. We should like very much to
see the subject pursued farther.

KrKisley an Isveterate Smoker
President McKinley is becoming as
inveterate a smoker as Gen. U.S.Grant
To th i is attributed the development
of his nervous condition. The I'r? ?nient

time he goes into his otlice in the

the Cabinet room is opened to admit a

Since the ?occupation of Cuba, Porto
Rioo and the Philippines by the I nited
States forces admirers of the President
holding commissions in the aimy and
navy have Bent him presents of cigars.
The first specimen? to reach the Ex?
ecutive Mansion were from Manila.
They were the familiar long, black
cigars of that country. Almost every
officer of the army returning from Cuba
and Porto Rico has a box or two of
oigars for the President.
These cigars are specially made for
presentation to the Chief Executive,
and are composed of the finest tobacco
grown in the islands. As a result of
this remembrance on the part of his
friends the President has a large sup?
ply of the finest cigars on hand ami is
constantly smoking them.
The President is a believer in the
theory that tobacco smoke is efficacious
in stopping the neuralgic pains from
which he has been a sufferer for the
last few monthc ? Washington tele?
gram to the Cincinnati Tribune.
An Enchanted Stream Which Makes Con?
? ' The elevated altitude and pure air
of Arizona and New Mexico seem to af?
fect the minds and imaginations of
come men," writes W. E. Curtis in the
Chicago Record. "Down in Arizona
there is a little stream known as the
Hassaympa River, and it is said that if
any one drinks of the water he is for
erer after incapable of telling the
truth. The viotims of this mysterious
stream are known as 'Hassayamps,'
and there are a good many of them in
this part of the country. Somo have
mines to sell."

LUf8 rOUnO 3? L3S?. Cancer can not be cured by a surgical
operation, because th?? disease is a virulent
poison in the blood, circulating throughout the system, and although
tho sore or uU*?r?known as th?* Cancer?may ho cut away, the
poison remains in the blood, and promptly breaks out afresh, with
. renewed violence.
Tho wonderful success of 8. 8. B. in curing obstinate, deep-seated

spairing sufferers to try it for Cancer, after exhausting the skill <>f
the physicians without a curt?. Much to their delight a. S. S. proved
equal to the ili-?o.is?- and promptly effected a euro. Tho glad news
(spread rapidly, and it was soon demonstrated
beyond doubt that a cur?* had at last been
found for deadly Cancer. Evidence has accu?
