FROM SCOTL.ASI? TO IOWA
Yet chance has played a moat im
portant part in the new Speaker'?
life. Had not Thomas Henderson
his father, been more trustful ovei
half a century Ago than most moc
are, David I'.remner Henderson mighi
never have been an American sitia n
at all. The course of his whole ca?
reer, since early childhood, waf
changed bv one act of confidence on
tbe elder Henderson's part.
For generations tbe Hendersons
dwelt in Old Deer, a village attached
to the Earl of Bucban's, estate in
Aberdeenshire, Scotland. As the
general is now, so was bis father bs
fore nim, fond of singing, and pos?
sessed of a voice which made him a
general favorite. The Old Earl of
Bucban, a bachelor, who received
much company and lived high, was
one of those who took pleasure in
Henderson'? voice, and often had him
at tbe castle for tbe diversion of bis
guests. Henderson had tbe additional
gift of improvising rhymes readily,
and frequently composed new songs
on tbe spur of tbe moment, adapted
them to old airs and sang tbem to
tbe immense entertainment of the
earl'?-. visitors. On one occasion
when Henderson's efforts bad been
particularly pleasing tbe eail told
him be might occupy a good siz?<d strip
of Und at tbe bead of Old Deer's

Henderson's fisters were living.
Tho trip lasted many weeks. Davi
was only six years old then, bot h

all happened last week.
A l:r>V CHILDHOOD.
The Hendersons struggled llowl
to Chicago. When tiiey reached tha
pi ice Thos. Henderson had just on
British sovereign (less than |5) It if
of the money he bad realised from tli
sale of his effects in Scotland witl
which to begin life anew
Qeorge K?rr, a uephew of Mr?
Henderson, met the party at Cbie.agi
to escort them farther on their way
The young man had b o ?ght aloni
two covered wagons. In them tu<
new cornera finished their travels
Wasting no time in idle repinings
Headeroon buckled manfully to hii
ta?k, In less than four years he am
his sturdy boys had established them
?elves so well that they wi re able t<
buy a big tract of government lam
in Fayetto county, in the northeast
ernmost corner of Iowa, and then
they settled and spread out, aftei
genuine American pioneer fashion
Tney named their new home I'leasan
I'rarie, but their neighbors wouldn'
have it so. They renamed it Men
! derson's Prairie, and so it is knowr
to the presen' day.
? It would be hard to conceive of t
1 busier boy's life than that of David
B. M -uderson in the log home buili
1 by his father. The whole country
I abounded with wild game and th?
streams were full of fisb.but the young?
ster had no time to bunt or play the
angler. Daily in tbe summertime,
unless it rained, it was his duty tc
begin work before tuorise and con
t nue until after sunset. On rainy
days, and in the winter time, be
read and studied, in the years be
tween eight and sixteen mastering
Shakespeare, Milton and other En?
glish classics. On Sundays he went
to church. His only amusements
were athletic?) and he was champion
wrestler of the entire region. Through
this the course of bis life was changed
almost as completely as tbe episode
with tbe dead Etrl of Buchan's
younger brother had changed the cir?
cumstance of his father.
HOW HE WEST TO 0OLLI8I.
It came about in this way : When
tbe youngster was sixteen or seven
teen a stranger who bad beard of
David's prowess as a wrestler visited
Henderson's Prairie for the purpose
of trying conclusions with him. The
stranger was taller and heavier than
bis boyish opponent, but Henderson
threw him repratedly, the stranger
finally admitting that the boy was the
better man. Finally the stranger
said that if be could bave what was
called tbe " right hand under hold,"
he would try again. It was against
|hII precedent to (five un opponent
? i ucii an . . t n? left band
I r a ol the i igbl

HOW HI '.VENT TO WAR
igh he enjoyed student life at
Be immensely, he did not finish
tbe coarse of -tudy there. It was
interrupted by tbu civil war. (,je
of his b?st frlendfl was a student
named W. W. Warner. In August,
1861, while the war was still young,
Henderson Ai.d Warner spet-t a Sum
day evening with Warner's sisters
Later in the night Henderson told
Warner be was ashamed of himself
because he bad not enlisted as a vol
uu'eer in the army of the north. It
would be a pity to leave school, he
said, but the country needed young
meo just then. The friends talked
long and earnestly over the situation
ami the result was a plan the culmi?
nation of which occurred at Fayette
on September 15 Henderson was
On the morning of that day, just
af er prayeis, young Henderson,
who, with Warner and another stud?
ent named Burr, had been working
?I uetly amoDg the students at their
" conspiracy," arose and asked per?
mission to say a few words " on a
,-ul j -ct of vital interest to every one
present." He had no complaint, no
protest to make, be said, but he
wished earnestly to be heard. This
was an entirely novel proposition,
and tbe faculty hesitate?!, but per?
mission was finally given. Then the
youngster stood upon the floor and
made his first " war speech." He
dw.lt upon the government's need
for tbe services of its strong young
sons, and declared it to be the duty
of all who could to rush to tbe front.
His ? ff >rt culminated in a whirlwind
of passion and patriotism, and when
tie bad finished be read a series of
resolutions setting forth the situation
in sober phrase, and concluding with
this paragraph :
"We therefore drop our books to
fight our country's bat'l*s."
To this was appended a muster rolls
betiiog tie names of tw nty-two
students, tbe ?I ?wer of the school's
B fore he went to the front Hen?
derson enlisted 104 more volunteers,
and thus the career of this typical
American soldier, professional man
and stateman was begun. His war
record ?r known to all the world.
Though offered a captain's phce, he
said be was too young, and so was
made second lieutenant. Twice he
was wounded, once in the face, when
he was first under fire, and once
below the knee, which made ampu?
tation necessary. Nevertheless, he
returned to the front, though wearing
a timber leg, and when then war was
