LINCOLN'S OLD HOME.
House Built in 1840 Restored by the
State.
Springfield, Dec. 8. Extensive re
pairs on the old home of Abraham Lin
coln, at Eighth and Jackson streets,
have just been completed. The $2,000
appropriated by the last legislature was
spent in strengthening the foundation
and restoring those parts of the build
ing that had begun to give way under
the wear and tear of rain and bad
weather.
Care was taken not to make the
slightest alteration in the historic struc
ture, as it is the intention of the state
to preserve it in its original condition as
long as it stands.
The restoration of this house has been
watched with anxious interest, and now
that the work is completed visitors who
were friends of the martyr president de
clare that it is just as they remembered

it when Lincoln broke up housekeeping
to move to Washington.
The house was built in 1840, and was
purchased by Air. Lincoln in 1844, two
years after his marriage. He added an
extra story to it, and furnished it
simply. Here he lived for almost seven
teen years, and when he turned his back
upon it he went out to take charge of
the affairs of the nation at its most
crucial time.
It was on February 11, 1861, that he
crossed its threshold for the last time.
In restoring the old house the furniture
that did service when Mr. Lincoln was
a young attorney has been reupholstered
and arranged as it was when Mrs. Lin
coln kept house in the modest frame
dwelling.
The Lincoln home is visited every year
by fifty thousand persons, who pass
with reverent steps from one room to
another examining' the plain furniture,
the books and personal belongings that
have gained a priceless value, because
they were the property of the illustrious
statesman, whose simple manhood, as
well as his distinguished services, en
deared him to the people of the United
States.
Albert S. Edwards, a nephew of Pres
ident Lincoln, is the present custodian
of the house. His grandfather, Ninilin
Edwards, was the only territorial gov
ernor of Illinois, one of its two first
senators, and afterwards its governor.
ANNA EVA FAY, SEERESS.
From the Baltimore Sun.
Several hundred women at the "ladies'
matinee" at Music Hall asked Anna
Eva Fay questions which they probably
had never even whispered to their very
deadest friends.
Miss Fay was seated upon the stage,
and was blindfolded with a silk hand
kerchief tied tightly over her eyes. A
sneet was thrown over her nead ana
draped about the chair. Soon her right
hand appeared from beneath the sheet
and this she waved about in the air un
til it pointed somewhere near the asker
of the question.
Meanwhile the audience had prepared
itself by writing questions on slips of
paper. Each slip was grasped tightly
and the holder thought of her name.
The name would be spelled out by Miss
Fay, and upon being recognized she
would go on with the question and
answer. Afterward the original question
would be read.
One young lady in next to the front
row, who wore a light straw hat with a
monstrous pompon was anxious to
know her fate in love affairs. She sign
ed an assumed name to a question ask
ing, "Will I marry the man I am en
gaged to?"
"You are thinking of two men," was
the answer, "one you are engaged to,
you are thinking of another, a minister.
Let your heart dictate, for in that way
only can you find true happiness."
Some of the auditors were hateful
enough to giggle out loud.
A young lady who wore a white silk
waist and a black hat loaded down with
plumes, was anxious to know about get
ting married.
"You will marry, and probably the
politician, not the doctor, you are think
ing about," was the answer.
"There, now, what did I tell you?"
cried a pretty girl just across the aisle.
A pretty young lady m tfie iront row,
who might be identified by the black
hat and fur collar she wore, asked if
she would "be a success" if she went on
the stage. The answer was "yes."
"Will I marry a man?" one girl asked.
"Oh. my!" came in a chorus, for the
young lady did not emphasize "man."
But Miss Fay understood.
"Yes." she replied, "you certainly will,
and not an excuse for one. But it will
not be in the near future, probably in
two years, and he will be a professional
man a lawyer, I think."
A little girl whose big black hat was
trimmed with a big pink bow was an
swered, "Yes, you will be put in the
first grade."
Does my husband love me, and is he
true to me?" was the query of an
anxious-looking wife who wore a black
bonnet.
"He has business affairs he has not
told you of. and he is as true as the
average man; that's all I can say," was
all the satisfaction she received. The
seeress" couldn't hide a little bitter
ness in that "average-man" slap. Why?
"Your husband loves you, and in the
coming year he will be successful in a
business way, was the answer another
wife received.
"You are thinking of Frank. He is
doing time, and he is all right. He will
not be home for a year and three
months," was another answer. At this
there was a vast craning of necks, and
a thick veil suddenly fell over a very
red face near the center of the hall.
"Is my husband happy with that wo
man?" caused many w en, aia you
evers; to be uttered.
Miss Fay's reply was: She is not
long for this world. He will soon return
to you."
"Indeed he won't," exclaimed the de
serted one.
"Will I always be as prosperous as
now?"
'"You will never suffer want."
"You will see your husband tonight,
so you need not worry about him."
"You are going to the Pacific coast."
"You are going away before the holi
days." "It was a stout lady who took your
ring."
"Mrs. Smith will keep on having
spells, but she might try an application
of cold water to the spine."
"A change of your career will be made
in March, 1901."
"Your business will be quite satisfac
tory." .
Thus was answer after answer given
to the anxious inquirers.
Miss Fay started once to tell about a
safe combination, and was interrupted
by the statement that the question was
about something else. "I can't help what
you wrote." she answered, "you are
not thinking about that Richmond safe
make at all, but about the combination
of a safe."
Thereupon the young lady in a gray
suit was much confused, but managed
to nod her head to signify the correct
ness of the sttaement.
Indeed, it was a right delightful sym
posium. ESCAPED A WATERSPOUT.
From the Philadelphia Press. 1
The German tank steamship Bayonne.
Captain von Hugo, which arrived here
yesterdav in ballast from Genoa, at
which port she had landed a cargo of re
fined petroleum, had a remarkably nar
row escape from destruction by a mam
moth waterspout on the morning of Oct.
24 while in latitude 38:10. longitude 51:20.
The huge column of whirling water
passed just clear of the vessel and struck
terror to the hearts of all on board.
Captain von Hugo and his chief offi
cer were on the bridge at the time. The
weather was hazy, but there was little
wind and the sea was smooth. The ship
was clipping through the water at a
good eleven-knot speed. The sun had
just risen above the horizon, but was to
a great extent obscured by heavy clouds.
Directly in front of the ship there sud
denly loomed up what appeared to be a
dark cloud. At first it created no un
usual interest, but as it seemed to be
drawing rapidly toward the vessel the
mate picked up his glasses and took a
careful look at it. At once he realized
what it was. It was a waterspout com
ing directly for them. If it struck the
vessel it meant her total destruction.
Quick as a flash the wheel was thrown
hard a-port and the vessel's prow was
brought up to the north. She was still
maintaining a good eleven knots, but it
was a question whether she could clear
the course of the waterspout. Its noise.
churning up the water, was plainly au
dible. Nearer and nearer it came, gath
ering force with every revolution.
Finally the waterspout was within full
view, sucking hundreds of tens of water
skyward. The noise was deafening.
Fortunately for all on board the ship,
the whirling mass of water passed clear
of her stern and shot to the eastward.
The officers of the Bayonne say it was
a grand sight to witness. The huge col
umn of water seemed to reach skyward
to the clouds, with spray flying from it
in all directions.
By actual count it was ten minutes
from the time the waterspout was first
sighted until it faded away over the
eastern horizon. It was sighted at 6:1
a, m. and disappeared at 6:22 a. m. A
detailed report of the exciting experience
has been forwarded to the hydro-
graphic department at Washington.
SIX CENTURIES TO BUILD.
From Stray Stories.
While the first stone of Cologne cathe
dral was laid on August 15, 1248, and
the body of the edifice was not opened
until August 15, 1848, 600 years later to
the very day, it was not, however, until
faigust 15, 1880, that the splendid struc
ure was finally reported completed,
having thus occupied in building the
record time of exactly 634 years.
The castle of Kingsgoberg, which
stands at the southern extremity of Jut
land, took 204 years from the laying of
the foundation stone to the rigging of
its master's banner on its highest flag
staff. Its foundation stone was the skull
of its builder's bitterest enemy. Three
months after its laying Count Jhorsmg,
the builder of the castle, was killed.
His son was then in swaddling clothes.
He did not continue his father's work
until aged 24.
On his twenty-fifth birthday he was
thrown into prison by the the son of
the man whose skull lay in the earth as
Kingsgoberg's foundation stone. In this
manner master1 after master of Kingsgo
berg was stopped putting another stone
toward the completion of the founder's
work till civilization intervened.
Between Perth and Kingussie in Scot
land, on the direct John o' Groats to
Land's End road, stands Muithley
castle, a magnificent Elizabethan struc
ture, designed in the early part of the
present century. It is not likely to be
finished, however, building experts de
clare, for at least another decade. -
Only a few miles distant, on the same
main road, is the vast unfinished palace
of the dukes of Athol. tl was begun
by the fourth duke, who died in 1830,
and who planned it on the most sump
tuous style. When completed it will be
one of the finest private residences in
the kingdom.
For over twenty years Lord Bute had
been busily building a great mansion on
the island of that name. It is not yet
completed, nor likely to be for another
ten years. At the end of that period,
Mount Stewart, as the place is to be
called, will be one of the most gorgeous
establishments in the world.
Restcrmel castle, in Cornwall, took
ninety years to build, of which period
exactly one-third was occupied in exca
vating the foundations. - The solid rock
upon which it stands is almost as hard
as iron. Indeed, "Restormel" means, in
Cornish, "the place of the iron rock."
Milan cathedral was begun in 1386 and
finished under Napoleon in 1S05 419
years.
TheDuomo at Florence wascommenced
by ArT.ulfo in the year 1294, the last
block of marple being placed in position
in the facade in presence of the king on
May 12, 1887, a period of 593 years.
ATLANTA'S SHOW.
Big Exposition Is to Be Held in Geor
gia in 1902.
Atlanta, Ga Dec. 8. Atlanta will
probably have a great textile exposition
in 1902. Preliminary steps were taken
this morning at a meeting of business
men held in the office of Colonel W. R.
Hemphill, business manager of the Con
stitution. The extensive buildings em
ployed for the cotton states and inter
national exposition are about to be sold,
and it is proposed to buy these and
erect others.
The most prominent business men of
Atlanta were present and spoke en
thusiastically in support of an exposi
tion two years hence. Among those who
addressed the meeting were: Colonel
W. A. Hemphill, president of the Con
stitution; S. M. Inman, Atlanta's lead
ing cotton merchant; Mayor-elect Liv
ingston Mims, President Wickersham of
the Atlanta and West Point railroad,
Clark Howell, editor of the Constitution,
and the leading business men of the
city.
Colonel John Weber of Buffalo, repre
senting the exposition about to be open
ed there, asked Atlanta for her co-operation
and promised that of Buffalo in
Atlanta's enterprise. Colonel Hemphill
was authorized to appoint a committee
of ten to formulate definite plans.
MISS ROCKEFELLER DEAF
Multimillionaire's Daughter Again
Postpones "Wedding.
Cleveland, O.. Dec. 8. The wedding of
Miss Alta Rockefeller, daughter of John
D Rockefeller, to E. Parmelee Prentice,
a Chicago lawyer, which was to have
taken place on December 10. has been
postponed until such time as Miss Rocke
feller's deafness is cured. She has been
in Vienna. Austria, for some time under
going treatment. Her hearing, which was
almost entirely gone, is slowly but surely
returning, hence her physicians pleaded
for her to remain and postpone the wed
ding guaranteeing the complete restora
tion of her hearing. Miss Rockefeller con
sented and recently cabled her mother of
the change in plans. Mr. Prentice, who
went over to Austria to accompany his
fiancee to this country, agreed with the
plan. The wedding will probably take
place next spring.
WALES A BAD DRESSER.
Parisian Declares Prince Does Not
Know Styles.
Paris, Dec. 8. A ripple of excitement is
perturbing the idle world of fashion be
cause of the emphatic statement made by
M. Lebargy, the French Beau Brummel,
that the Prince of Wales' reputation as a
good dresser is a shameless usurpation.
Lebargy said: "The Prince of Wales
lacks the subtle imagination to innovate
anvthing. and whatev;" he may have been
years ago has long gone.
"Waies now lacks the physique, knowl
edge, and tact to wear properly even the
creations of others. I have known him
personally for ten or twelve years, and
never once have seen him dressed like a
gentleman."
Many Parisian arbiters of fashion in
dorse Lebargy's statement and compli
ment on his pluck and' daring at last to
speak the truth.
ASTOR HIS OWN BANKER.

Pays $ 15,000.
London, Dec. 8. William Waldorf
Astor, who is the owner of one of the
most beautiful office buildings in Lon
don, has just had constructed at a safe
