using them out of respect for the sen

A good deal of interest is being

they entered. Then, turning to them
said: "Gentlemen, did you ever
read anything from Artemus Ward?
Let me read you a chapter that is
very funny."
A look of anger passed over the
ministers. Lincoln laughed heartily:
not a member of the cabinet smiled.
"Well," he said, Let's have another
chapter." He continued to read with
great deliberation. The statesman
were astonished. Abruptly, he threw
the book down, and exclaimed "Gen
tlemen, why don't you laugh? With
the tearful Btrain that is upon me
night and day it I do not laugh I shall
die, and you need this medicine as
much as I do."
His face and his tone became grave,
'turning to his tall silk hat that lay
upon the table, he took a paper from
it. He gazed for a moment at his
ministers. "I have called you here,"
he said slowly, "upon very Important
business. I have prepared a little

The statesmen were silent. The
tremendous meaning of it all flooded
upon them. The man upon whom
they had looked as without power of

determination. In the might of de
