of a horrible tragedy a sequel to the

circumstances so suspicious that a more

Karly Wednesday evening Leflore was
captured several miles from the scene
ot the murder. At first the negro
vigorously denied any knowledge of
the crime, but he finally broke down
completely and confessed that he and
I.ob Anderson and Andrew Smith, two
other negroes, had done the dastardly
work. He hoped for no mercy and
told with a brutal frankness all the
details of the crime In the yard when

A gentleman who knew Lincoln well
told the following story about "Old
"About, two years before Mr. Lincoln
an against Mr. Douglas for the Unit
ed States senatorship I was a witness
In Judge David Davis' court in the Mc
Lean county circuit. During the prog
ress of the case Mr. Lincoln, who had
como up from Springfield the night be
fore, entered the courtroom and stood
before the big stove in one corner ef
tho room to warm himself. Several
lawyers auti aciiunintanccK at -once
gathered around Mr. Lincoln, and he
began telling stories in a low voice.
Judge Davis finally arose, stretched
himself and in a drawling voice said:
' 'See here, now, Lincoln, either you
will have to quit telling stories, or I
will have to adjourn court.'
' 'All right, judge," replied Mr. Lin
coln. 'I've got business down the
street, so I'll go."
"Mr. Lincoln was the most magnetic.
entertaining man I ever knew. People
have said he was homely, but when he
was speaking I've seen his face light
up with such a brilliant expression
that he looked positively handsome."

It is a remarkable fact that water
which Hows naturally into the gulf of
California anil theuco into the Pacific,
ocean has been virtually lifted across
the backbone of the Rocky mountains.
and now, after being used for irriga
tion, finds its way to the gulf of Mexi
co. A number or small streams on tne
other side of Long's peak, which flow
into Grand kiko and thence into the
Colorado river, have been diverted by a
ditch that finds its way through a pass
10,000 feet high into the head waters
of the Poudre. Some 400 cubic fiet
per second lias thus been diverted from
tlie Pacific to t lie Atlantic slope, where
wafer is used for Irrigating additional
farms In Larimer county. It Is not
strictly correct to say t'nat this water
has been lifted across the range, lint
a feat of sinuous engineering has di
verted it, which amdtints to the same
thing. Denver liiijublicnn
