Lincoln ami Vnorlieen.
Senator Voorliees, of Indiana, who

always on good terms with President

among which is the following:
While Lincoln was fearless in his

He would never consent to shoot a
soldier for cowardice. He called
them "leg cases.11 "No one need
ever expect me to sanction the shoot

battle," he said to nie once; "I won t
do it. A man can't help being a
coward any more than he could help

with one." Then, turning to me
again he said: "Voorhees, were you
I confessed that I had had some

"So have I," said Lincoln laugh

And in any contest or controversy
which arises between the head and

London's Theater Curtainss
One of 1 he finest curtains in this conn
try is at t ae Lyceum theater. On it all
that art c in do has been lavished. Made
of a rich, beautiful plush of dragon's
blood hue, it hangs from the proscenium
arch in artistic folds. The curtain veas
presented to Mr. Irving by the Baroness
Burdett Coutts, its cost being 1,000
guineas. One thousand yards of plush
were tisel m its manufacture, and it
achieved t he fame of once being parodied
in a Gaiety burlesque.
Mr. Wyndham's curtain at the Crite
rion is a creation of Maple & Co. and
cost about 120. At the Gaiety the pres
ent act drop is the work of Mr. George
Banks. The artist's conception takes
the form of a great white satin cloth,
with a sol: tary figure opening two cur
tains. The Savoy curtain is noted both
for its beauty and the artistic manner in
which it r ses and reveals the stage. The
act drop t.t the Adelphi, the home of
"creepy" laelodrama, is a curtain which
has markel the resting places of count
less pieces of the transpontine type. It
represents a scene in Sherwood forest
in the days of Robin Hood and his mer
ry, merry men. London Million.

Superstition That Is Ancient.
In manj parts of Great Britain the
superstition still survives that it is folly
or madness to save a drowning man, as
he will sooaer or later do an injury to
the rescuer. The superstition comes
down from our ancestors, yet traces of
exist among the Sioux and other In
dians, whe tfeeih to Lave inherited it
from abori,jinai sources. The belief is
most prevalent in Cornwall and various

The Face of a Silver Dollar.
Some numismatist, who delights in
studying tie face of the American dollar,
announces that it "presents upon the ob
verse side not only a very good likeness
of George 1 1, but also a clearly delineated
representation of the head of the British
lion." It ii said that these nnpatriotic
emblems w ire surreptitiously introduced
by a perfidious Englishman who was em

There is a mode of speech which may
be termed euphemistic by those who are
fond of "calling a spade a spade," but is
it not rather the . natural expression of
the chanty which never faileth? To say
the best of others is a manifest dntv.
and to do it in the prettiest language en
hances it wonderfully. And where de
fects exist that are commented on by
the unfortunate possessor in that ill
judged fashion which attempts to as
sume indifference to the imperfections
how deftly may the coufidante turn the
current of self depreciation into a smooth
er channel by "a nice derangement of
epitaphs. A young girl bewailed her

Catarrh Causes it Stop
Mr. Peterson's case illustrates the
danger of allowing these troubles to
run on, and should be carefully read
A very large per cent of these cases
of deafness and roaring noises is due
to the extension of catarrh to the
eustachian tubes and inner ears.
Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians of the Scott Medical In
stitute have been in the restoration
of hearing lost or dulled from ca
tarrhal extension. It is folly to wait
lor a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear
ing is entireiv ilestroved. A thor
ough course of treatment with a ca
llable specialist, who goes right at
the cause of the- trouble anil removes
it, is the onlv hope.

Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each week or two,
for the past three years in the tri-
city papers. In the case of Mr.
Peterson, Dr. i!son would state, he
has lived in Rock Island county for
over 30 years. He is director of a
tire insurance company, and is also
connected with the management of
Augustana college. Is he a man to
be relied on? Let the public judjre.

and pictures of a number of minis

tirade against him bv a voting firm

Some three weeks ago Dr. Wilson in
serted in the papers a statement tothe
effect that he would notice this babv
firm no more in print. Today he
says the same thing. It is no pleas
ure for ns to work for nothing.
Dr. llson has business interests
at stake in this state. The "blowing
firm" have nothing to lose here
nothing that can be touched there

can not bite."
Dr. Wilson wishes to announce
to the general public that his diplo
