LINCOLN'S SPEECH AT GETTYSBURG
Prlrate Note and Memoranda The
Speech Not Ilecelvetl with Favor.
A Iav or two Ix-foro the dedication of
Lincoln told me that he would 1 ex- I
pected to make a speech on the occasion;
that he was extremely busy, with no time I
for preparation, and that he preatly dared
be would not be able to acquit himself
with credit, much less to till the measure
of pulilic exectatin. From his hat (the
usual receptacle of his private cnti-a nud ,
memoranda) he drew a page of foolscap, '
closelr written, which he read me, first
remarklns that it was a memorandum of
what lie had intended to say. It proved
to ne in sunsuince, anu i ininK nrceroo.
whnt was printed as his Gettysburg
After its delivery he expressed deep re
gret that he had not prepared it with
greater care. He said to me on the stand,
immediately after concluding the speech, '
"Lamon. that speech won't scour! It it
a flat failure, and the people are disap
pointed." He seemed more than ordi
naril) concerned alwut what the people
w ould think of it. I was deeply imprest
by his frank and regretful condemnation
of the effort, and especially by his manner
of expressing that regret; and my own
impression was deepened by the fact that
the orator of the day, Mr. Kverett, and
Mr. Seward both coincided with Sir. IJn
coln In his unfavorable view of its merits.
On the platform from which Mr. Lin-
coin had made his address, and only a mo-
- - - ' - " -"" '""' -" vff "'"
turned to Mr. Eerett and asked him
what he thought of the president's speech
' Mr. Everett replied: "It was not what I
expected from him I am disappointed."
In his turn Mr. Everett asked: "What
I do you think of it, Mr. Seward!" The
, response was: "He has made a failure,
and I am sorry for it. His speech is not
j equal to htm." Mr. Seward then turned
tome and asked: "Mr Marshal, w hat do
you think of it" I answered: "I am
sorry to say that it decs not impress me
as one of his great speeches."
' In the face of thc-e facts It has been
repeatedly published that this speech was
receied with great eclat by the audience;
that "amid the tears, sobs and cheers it
' produced in the excited throne, the orator
I of the day, Mr Eerelt, turned impul-
sixclyto Mr. Lincoln, gra-ped his hand
and exclaimed: 'I congratulate jou on
jour success!' adding in a transport of
, heated enthusiasm: 'Ah' Mr. President,
how gladly would I give my hundred
pages to be the author of your tw enty
lines ' "
1 All this nnworthy gush, it Is needless
to saf , is purely apocryphal. Nothing of
l the kind occurred. As a matter of fact,
Mr. Lincoln's great Gettysburg speech
fell on the vast audience like a wet
blanket. At that time his reputation was
confessedly on the wane. The politicians
of the country those of his own party,
together ith a large part of the press
were e-isf int. nlioiit for an avnlLililo randi-
aat0 to bo his successor, while great
majority of the peoplo were for him. I
state it a it f.ict, and without fear of con-
:radiction, that this famous Gettysburg
:tuaAh s tint fU'imi iul if (iiinnnuntiul
peech wa not recened or commented
upon with anything like hearty faor
by the people, tho politicians or the press
of the United States UDtil after the
death of its author Its manelous per
fection, its intrinsic excellence as a master
piece of English composition, seem to have
escaped the scrutiny of the most scholarly
critics and the wisest heads of .the day, on
this tide of the Atlantic. That discovery
was made, w e must regretfully own, by
distinguished writers on the other side.
The London Spectator, The Saturday Re
view, The Edinburgh Review and other
European journals were the first to dis
cover, or at least to proclaim, tho classical
merits of the Gettysburg speech. It was
then that w e began to realize that it w as
indeed a masterpiece, and it then dawned
upon many minds that v. c had entertained
an angel unnwares who had left us unap
preciated. Ward II. Lamon's Letter.
A Mlaorly Man'a Luck.
Proverbially considered, the statement
tluit it never rains but it pours and that
water runs to the sea express different
phases of the same truth, and this par
ticularly irrational, inexplicable truth
fata spends her time in demonstrating.
Fur instance, take two things that have
happened to one rich, solitary old man in
this town within two weeks. His name
is well known, though his enormous for
tune is not generally estimated at Its
true proportions, he does not live like a
rich man is a bit of a miser, in fact but
as numliers of people know, is the pos
sessor of numerous millions. He works
hard, as his work is the only thing ho
takes an interest in, and his only recrea
tion, taken at the doctor's orders, is horse
back riding In the park.
To strangers he litcs to put up a poor
mouth, for one thing, for the simple pleas
ure of seeing them fooled, and he recently
told a business acquaintance that he was
too poor to have a good horse; tho busi
ness acquaintance was a rich Kentuckian,
not rich as comuired to the other, but
rich for Kentucky Touched by the old
man's bad mount, a thing that seemed
moro tragic to him than it would to any
but a Kentuckian, ho presented him with
a superb saddle horse, a son of Golddust,
perfectly trained and worth a small for

Mow Arsenical I'oUnnlng.
I have read n great deal in the papers
about slow iwisoning processes, but only
believed the various statements when
they were brought home to me. My
wife, who had tn-en remarkable for her
rugged health and rosy appearance, began
to fade awaj She dwindled to a mere
shadow, and j et she reiterated statements
of guod hialth. Fiuallj-, I insisted on
calling in i. doctor of high standing, after
un imphatic protest from our regular
physician. A long diagnosis decided that
my wife was sufferi'.ig from arsenical
poisoning drau n into the sj stem from a
cheap set of false teeth, w hich had been
purchases! alwut a w cek before the first
symptoms of enkuess had been observed.
Arsenic had leen used in the enamel to
secure the glittering hiteness so much
ndmirj.d by w omen, and in the process of
mastication small particles had been ab
sorbed in the food and taken into Uie
stomnch, where tho insidious work of
destruction was progressing surelj' to a
fatal termination. I don't know how
many cases of the kind may exist, but
from the fact that half a dozen medical
men were bafHed in their attempted diag
nosis, I would not be surprised if thou
sands of women were poisoned annually
in this way. Railroad Couductor In
Development of the Trotter.
Senator Daniel, of Virginia, like many
other southern men, ts an admirer and
lover of fine horsetlesh. He was going
the other day to run over to the trotting
races at Hartford when he said: "It must
evcntuslly come nbout that the trotting
races will lie popular, because it is in this
gait that the horse combines utility with
speedy action. It is as the ro.uiMiTth.it
the horso is inon available for pleasure
and practical service. In a, recent article
written bv Judge Hughes, ef Richmond,
I saw a theory advanced in reference to
the development in the trotting gait which
I think 1 hav e not seen mentioned before.
The thoroughbred animal is to be found
on the great plains and level stretches of
the country, where his natural gait Is j
running The trottinggait. Judge Hughes
thinks, comes to the animal as he is trans- i
f erred to undulating countries, where he '
is obliged to adapt his footing to rising
anil falling thoroughfares. That would i
tic the natural development of the run
ning thoroughbreds into the trotters. It '
is, of course, to the thoroughbreds that
we must go for the best stock for the de
velopment of trotters ns well us runners."
