"What did I do? Why, you old seed
cucum jer, the whole play centered
around me. Do you remember the scene
in the Iioman forum where McCullongh
addressed the populace cf Rome? I was
tho populace. Don't you remember a
small feller standing in front of tho
Rom.iT orator taking it in, with a night
shirt o i. with bare legs and arms? That
was in .and everything depended on me.
Siippo-i' I had gone off the stage at the
critical moment or laughed when 1
should have looked fierce at the inspired
words of the Roman senator. It would
have liecna dead give away on MeCr.l

sider -.nyself a glittering success, and
Mac took me by the hand when they car

'Us three did ourselves proud.' Such
praise from McCullongh is seldom ac
corded to a supe. Dnt I don't consider

unhooking the carpet. Some sujies go

and rip up the carpet with no style about
them, and tho dust flies, and the boys
rcll 'tape,' and tho supe gets nervous
and fjrgets his cue and goes off tum

leader is afraid the snpe will fall on him.
Rut I go out with a quiet dignity that is
only j ained by experience, and I take
hold ( f tho carpet the way Hamlet takes

But you'd 'a died to see my Sunday

summer. lie keeps books in a store and
is pretty sot hi w-eek days, but ho can tell
yon more si 1 Mint Daniel in the lion's den

was solid at the theater and wanted me to
get him lichind the scenes one night, and
another supe wanted to go to the spar
ring match, and 1 thought it wouldn't
be any harm to work my teacher in, so 1
got him a jo'o th;rt night to hold the dogs
for the Unelrt Tom's show. Ho was in
one of the wings holding the chains, and
the dogs were just anxious to go on, and
it was all tnv teacher could do to hold
"I told him to wind the chains around
his wrists, and he did so, and just then
Eliza Itegaii to skip across t he ice. id
we sicked the bloodhounds on before
my teacher could unwind the chains
from his wrists. and the di:s jmlled him
right out on the stage on his stomach
and drawed him across, and he jerked
one dos; and kicked him in the stomach,
fend the dog i rned on my teacher and
took a mou.i. ..1 of his coat tail and
shook it, and I guess the dog got some
meat; anyway the teacher climlied up a
stepladder, and the dogs treed him, and
the stej .ladder fell down, and we grabbed
the dogs and put some court plaster on
the teacher's nose, where the fire extin
guisher peeled it, and he s.;id he would
go home cause the theater was demoral
izing in its tendencies. I s'pose it was
not right, but when the teacher stood up
to hear our Sunday school lesson the
next day cause he was tired where the
dog bit him, I said -Sick-em!" in a whis
per when his back was turned, and he
jumped clear over the Bible class and
put his hands around to his coattail as
though he thought the 'Uncle Tom's

was lately told that he once offered to
an editor a piece of verse in hexa

remarked: "This is very good, but I
shouldn't think you'd want to have
these three or four lines with thirteen
syllables in them." "Oh, I don't care

Once during the argument in a law
suit, in which Lincoln represented one
party, the lawyer on the other side
was a good deal of a glib talker, but
not reckoned as deeply profound or
much of a thinker. Ho vould say
anything to a jury that happened to
enter his head. Lincoln, in his ad
dress to the jury, referring to this,
said: "My friend on the other side is
all right, or would be all right, were
it not for the peculiarity i am about
to chronicle His habit of which
you have witnessed a very pain- '
ful specimen in his argument to
you in this case of reckless asser
tion and statements without grounds,
need not be imputed to him as a moral
fault or as telling of a moral blemish.
He can't help it. For reasons which,
gentlemen of the jury, you and I have
not time to &tudy here, as deplorable
as they are surprising, the oratory of
the gentleman completely suspends
all action of his mind. The moment
he begins to talk, his mental opera
tions cease. I never knew but one
thing which compared with my friend
in this particular. That was a small
steamboat. Back in the days when I
performed my Dart as a keel boatman,
I made the acquaintance of a trifling
little steamboat which used to bustle
and puff and wheeze about in the
Sangamon river. It had a five-foot
boiler and a seven-foot whistle, and
every time it whistled it stopped."
