ASSASSINATION OF LINCOLN
Dr. T. D. Bancroft, an Eye Witness,
Talks on Event.
Dr. T. D. Bancroft, who was in Ford's
theater on the night of April 11, 1865,
when Abraham Lincoln was ehot by
John Wilkee Booth and wan an eye wit
ness of the "world's greatest tragedy,"
delivered hi* lecture on the assassination
as he saw it before the departmental
school last Friday forenoon and before
COLFAX GAZETTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, APRIL 28. I'M I.
the High school pupils in th« afternoon
of thesimed-ty. He also addressed the
rimeis of Colfax Sunday evening in
the M. V.. church.
What Dr Bancroft paid concerning the
assignation is fatter of history, and
to t?rnyheards of the age of Dr. Ban
croft all derails connected with this ter
rible event are familiar, still it was in
teresting to look upon and listen from
the lips of one who was an eye witiits*
of the darkest crime that has so fur
marked our history. To the students of
the High school the doctor's remarks
must have been particularly interesting
and will give them a better understand
ing of the tragedy, the circumstances
leading up to ie aud the incidents sur
Booth wan not alone in the conspiracy

Lincoln mure cruel, hb well as astouish
ing, was tue fuct that it came at the
close of the civil wur. It is true that
Grant und L?e met at Appomattox utter
that aud signed articles of egreement,
but lighting had ceased und the dove of
peace huug over the nation. It was,
therefore, a joyous occasion, when a
battle-tcarrrd nation aud its president
were jojoun with the knowledge that the
bloody conflict had ended. A great
crowd bad a«aeinf>led at the theater to
greet the pregidmt, knowing that he
would be there, aud the president hio;
self was iv a peculiarly happy frame of
mind with th* feeling that the great
conflict was over. But the tragedy
came, and it fell like a thunderbolt from
a clear sky, striking every nook and
corner, not only of our own land, but of
the civilized world. Only those who
were old enough at the time to undet-
Btand the "deep damnation of his tak
ing off" cau fully realize the intense feel
ing thfit pervaded every section of the
country wuen it became known that
Lincolu was shot. Great as the excit«
ment was when Garneld and McKinley
were assassinated it was nothing com
pared to the feeling that prevailed when
Lincoln was taken away. At places and
times it amounted to frenzy.
The coming of Dr. Bancroft will per
haps cauae the young to read about
Lincoln, which should be an inspiration
for a high purpose and noble ideals.

THE RRILLION ROLLER, PULTERIZER AND
PACKER, will enable you to grow more grain per acre
than you have ever been able to do before. It mashes
the clods, cultivates, and leaves the ground in such con
dition that it will not crust again during the entire sum
mer. For use on fall sown grain it is the best imple
ment made, and for spring sowing it will increase your
yield fully one-third. If you have not seen the Brillion
Roller you should not delay seeing it—it will make
money for you, and when you come in don't forget to
have us show you the Ohio Double Disc Harrow. We
guarantee both machines.
