AN ANECDOTE OF LINCOLN.
Be Mr Stan red Height With a Miner la a
Pennsylvania Town. .
In the ccntse of nn article in St
Nicholas. Miiry Lilli.ni Ilcrr relates tlie
following character is tio anecdote of
Ouco while on his way to Washing
tea a president the train stopped a it
tin time in the town of Alleghany, Pa.
Around the station a great crowd gath
ered, eager to we the new president.
They shouted and cheered until Lincoln
bi.d to appear on tho rear platform of
his car. He lowed and smiled, bnt tbo
crnwd was so noisy he did not try to
speak to them.
Very near to the platform stood a
miner, wearing a red shirt and bluo
overall oud carrying a dinner pail.
Like the rest, he hud stopped hoping to
set Mr. Lincoln. The workman was al
most a giant in size and towered bead
and shoulders above the crowd.
Ho doubt be had heard that Lincoln
alto was very tall, and, encouraged by
tie friendly face, the workman sudden
ly waved bis bare ami above bis bead
and railed ont:
"Hi, there, Abe Lincoln! I'm 'taller
th.in yon yes, a sight tnllcr!"
This loud speech silenced the crowd
by its boldness, and a laugh arose. But
Air. Lincoln, leaning forward with a
good bnmorcd smile, said qnietly:
"My man, I doubt it in fact, I'm
tire 1 am the taller. However, come np
and let's measure. "
The crowd made way and tho workman
climbed to the platform und stood hwk
to bark with tha president elect. Each
ptit np a hand to seo whoee bead over
topped. Evidently Mr. Lincoln wan tho
victor, for with a smile of satisfaction
ho turned und offered bis buud to his
buitiu rival, saying cordially:
"I thought yon were mistaken and I
wns right. Lot I wished to be sure and
to have yon satisfied. However, we are
friend anyway, aren't we?"
' Grasping the outstretched hand in a
Timorous grip the workman replied:
"Yes, Abe Lincoln a long as I

ENGLISH IN CHICAGO.
Dlacaaslon an Crammsr Between a News
paper and a Citizen.
The Chicago Inter Ocean becomes
both sarcastic and indignant when any
one questions the purity of its diction.
&o when a reader named Campbell ven
tured to criticise expressions used by its
society editor tho captions one found
that ho hod caught a Tartar. This is the
way The Inter Ocean puts it:
Inclined with the following letter,
received a few days ago, were two clip
pings from the society columns of The
Hero are three barbarisms that caught my
eye in this morning's tague of your paper
There la no such word as "gowned" it is
dearly a Cockney vulgarism that had its
origin in London. England "Swcllest" is of
the snme sort and same origin No American
having any regard for parity of language can
use iraeh slang As ell these words appear in
mo caiiea "society items' i take it your Society
editor is a male or female dude and needs a
lesson in language The harm done by the use
of such words in your paper is very greet as
thousands of children read it and absorb ita
words Do stop this Cockney vulgarity

There is no doubt yon mean well,
Jim, but a term in a night school would
bo beneficial even to yon before yoa be
gin to give lessons in English. To begin
with, yoa wonld be taught there that
onr grandfather, Lindley Murray, al
ways told us to use periods. Too onght
to have known Lindley, Jim. He was
a distinguished grammarian,
know, or perhaps yon don't know.
And then, Jim, there was Tennyson.
He said of a heroine in one of his poems
that she was "gowned in pare white,"
So you see Lord Tennyson fonnd the
word "gowned" to be useful long be
fore yon learned to walk steady on your
hind feet or to eat with your front
hoofs. Webster says "gowned" means
"dressed in a gown; clad."
You say that these barbarians "caught
your eye," and you fail to mention
which- eye , they caught How is the
other eye? .
Von aro right when yon say that onr
society crjitor is either a male or a fe
male. Do yon belong to one of these
sexes? H"e Hispect not When you write
again, spell y merely" as it should be.
The wny yon spelled it is like spelling
your name "camel" instead of "Camp
bell. " See that hump?
We don't like to offend your sensitive
ear, or the other one cither, Jim. Buy
Webster's Dictionary mid a fourth read
er. Start right, and your sensitive ear
may outgrow its affliction.
Talna of tha En In Sickness.
The value of egg albumen as food in
certain diseased conditions is pointed
ont by Dr. C. E. Boynton.' When fever
is present and appetite is nil, he says,
when we want an. aseptic article of
diet, the white of an egg nyw serves
both as food and medicine. The way to
give it is to drain off the albumen from
an opening about half an inch in diam
eter at tbe small end of the egg, the
yolk reuiuiniug inside the shulL Add a
little salt to this and direct the patient
to swallow it Repeat every honr or
two. In typhoid fever this mode of feed
ing materially helps ns in carrying ont
an antiseptic plan of treatment Fur
thermore, the albumen to a certain ex
tent may antidote tbe tosincs of tbe
disease. Patients may at first rebel at
tbe idea of eating a "raw" egg, but the
quickness with which it goes down
without the yolk proves it to be less
disagreeable than tbey supposed, and
they are very ready to take a second
dose. Pacific Medical Journal.

. We came suddenly upon indubitable
evidence of battle and retreat About a
mile in advance the read was filled and
tbe fields dotted with wagons and men
belonging to tbe various brigade, divi
sion and corps headquarters, and in
among them officers' servants with led
horses, and here and there a broken am
bulance, antlers' supply trains, a bat
tery forge or two, horses and mules
hastily packed with officers mess kits,
led by tbeir cooks, and now and then a
group of soldiers, evidently detailed
enlisted men. attached to the head
quarters trains. In fact, this was tbe
first driftwood of a flood just beyond
and soon to come sweeping down tbe
road. Passing this accumulation of
debris with a rush by leaving tbe pike
and galloping over tbe open fields cn
tbe side of the road, we pushed rapidly
on, but not so quickly bnt that we
caught an echoing cheer from the en
listed men and servants, who recognized
the general and shouted an swung
their hats in glee.
Within the next few miles the pike
and adjacent fields began to be lined
and dotted everywhere with army wag
ons, sutlers' outfits, headquarters sup
ply trains, disabled caissons and team
sters with led mules, all drifting to the
rear, and now and then a wennded
officer or enlisted man on horseback or
plodding along on foot, with groups of
straggling soldiers here and there among
the wagon trains, or iu the fields, or
sometimes sitting or lying down to rent
by the side of the road, while others
were making coffee in their tin enps by
Soon we began to see small bodies of
soldiers in tbe fields with stacked arms,
evidently cooking breakfast. As we de
bouched into the fields and passed
around the wagons and through these
groups tbe general wonld wave his hat
to tbe men and point to the front, never
lessening his speed as he pressed for
ward. It was enough. One glance at the
eager face and familiar black horse and
they knew him, and, starring to their
feet, they swung their caps around their
heads and broke into cheers as be passed
beyond them, and then, gathering np
their belongings and sbonMeriug their
arms, they started after him for the
front; shonting to their comrades farther
ont in the fields, "Sheridan! Sheridan 1"
waving their bats and pointing after
him as he dashed onward, and they,
too, comprehended instantly, for tbey
took np tbe cheer and turned back for
To the best of my recollection, from
the time we met the first stragglers who
had drifted back from the urruy, his ap
pearance and bis cheery shout f "Turn
back, men; turnback! F:ice the other
way!" as he waved his hat toward the
front, had but one ret-ult a wild cheer
of recognition, an answering wavo of
tbe cap. In no case as I glanced back
did I fail to see the men shoulder t,heir
arms and follow ns. I think it is no ex
aggeration to say that as he dashed on
to the field of battle for miles back tbe
turnpike was lined with men pressing
forward after him to the front. .
After the wholo line was thoroughly
formed I rode over to my chief and
urged him to ride down it, that all the
men might see bim and know without
doubt that he bad returned and as
sumed command. At first he demurred,
bnt I was most urgent, as I knew that
in some instances both men and officers
who hod not seen him doubted his ar
rival. His appearance was greeted by
tremendons cheers from one end of tbe
line to tbe other, many of tho officers
pressing forward to shake his band. lie
spoke to them all cheerily and confident
ly, saying: "We are going back to our
camps, men, never fear. I'll get a twist
on these people yet. We'll raise them
ont of their boots before the day is
over. " t
At no time did I hear him utter that
"terrible oath" so often alluded to in
both prose and poetry in connection
with this day's work. "Sheridan's
Ride," by General George A. Forsyth,

largest Brick Ball din.
"Very few know it, bnt it is a fact, "
explained a prominent bnilder to a re
porter, "that the pension office building
is the largest brick bnilding in the
world. It has been subjected to much
criticism, bnt it can stand it, for as
time passes along there are many things
seen about it that escaped notice when
it was newer. In all there are over 10,
000,000 bricks in the bnilding. General
Meigs took liberties with bricks that no
other architect bad ever attempted. lie
not only used bricks exclusively for tbe
bnilding, bnt be used them in construct
ing tbe stairs throughout tbe building.
In the matter of stair bnilding bricks
have often been used for the riser, but
the step has always been of iron, wood,
slate or stone. In the pension office both
'riser and step are of brick. As a brick
building, therefore, pare and simple, it
is unique in construction outside of the
fact that it is the largest exclusively
brick building In the world. "Wash
A duffer of a sportsman went out
partridge shooting, accompanied by an
Irish keeper who was good natured
enough to make all kinds of excuses for
his patron's bad shots. At last tbe
shooter, made reckless by ill success,
perceived a covey of birds qnietly feed
ing on the other side of a hedge and re
solved to have a slap at tbeni on the
ground. He fired, but to bis mortifica
tion they all flew away untoaobed.

The ears were first clipped and then

In the ears of a mastiff dog any one

magnet, with which ho attracted a
block of iron from a distance of two
"Can any cf you conceive a greater
attractive power?" demanded the lec
turer, with an air of tiiamplu
"I can," answered a voice from the
"Not a natural terrestrial object?"
The lecturer, somewhat puzzled,
challenged tbe man who had spoken to

Johnny fcowerby. Said he:
"I will give you facts, professor, and
you can judge for yourself. When I was
a young man, there was a little piore o
natural magnet done up in a neat cot
ton dress as was railed Uetsy Maria.
She could draw me 14 miles on Sunday
over plowed land, uo matter what the
wind or weather. There wasn't uo re
