"HOME FOLKS" ARE IX POLITICS
Many 31. V. Sudent.s Have Relatives

In the game Saturday five members

The first real game of the season
will be with the Rolla team Saturday.

A dictionary owned by Abraham
Lincoln and several of his ancestors
has been lent to the State Historical
Society by W. W. Glass, a retired far
mer of 5Iaryville, Mo. 51 r. Glass is
an uncle of J. A. 5lcMillan of Picker
ing. 5Io., a senior in the College of
Arts and Science and the book was
sent to the Historical Society at the
request of Herschel Colbert, also a
student in the University.
The book is slightly more than two
inches thick and it is yellow with age.
In it are numerous inscription and
the names of the men who had it in
their nossession. On the fly-leaf is
written the date 1772 and also the inscription:
"A. Lincoln, His Book. Bought in
the Year of our Lord 179."."
Further down on the page appears
the name of Thomas Lincoln, father
of President Lincoln. The "A. Lin
coln" whose name is written in the
book is probably not President Lin
coln, as he was not born until 1S08.
The name of another Lincoln appears
on the fly-leaf, but the first name is
The book is covered with skin from
a buck said to hare been shot by
President Lincoln and the bullet hole
shows very plainly.
The title of the book is "An Uni
versal Etymological English Diction
ary and Interpreter of Hard Words."
It came into the possession of 5Ir.
Glass in 1S79, when he bought an 80
acre farm in Hancock County, Illi
nois, adjoining land owned by three
old bachelor cousins of Lincoln.
These men had often exchanged books
with the man who owned the farm
5Ir. Glass bought. The dictionary
had been lent to the neighbor and had
been stuck in the rafters of the old
log house. 5Ir. Glass round it when
he started to clean up the attic.
5rr. Glass considered the book valu
able, but did not think of placing it
in a library until 5Ir. Colbert sug
gested it to him. The volume was ex
hibited in a newspaper office in 5Iary
rille before it was sent here. It has
been lent to the Historical Society in
definitely, according to 5Ir. Colbert,
but has not been formally giren by
the owner. It is one of the most val
uable books in the society's library.
