A hi;ETCH OF T1IE roirr's like.
Walter, or Walt. Whitman was horn
at Westhills, Long Island, May 31,1810.
His father, whoso name ho boro, was a
farmer j and the boy, tho eldest of tho
family, was brought up with slight
knowledge Of even tho low refinements
obtainable in the couatry GO years ago.
He was ptrong and sturdy, a good ruler
* and swimmer, fond of out-door exercise,
and impatient of all tho amenities of
life. What hook education ho had lie
received in tho public schools oi New
York and Brooklyn. It was not much,
lor when only 10 he was back in the
country teaching others and learning
from them rather than from books. Af
ter a year or so oi teaching he became a
carpenter for a time. Then he learnod
printing, working at tlie case in Jsew
York and Brooklyn and editing papers
in Now Orleans and Huntington, Long
In 1S47-S with his brother, Jetrcrson
Whitman, he went on a long pedestrian
tour of the country, working his way
along by doing carpenters^ jobs-tramp
inn it, ono might say. For two years
the brothors wandered about, down the
Ohio and Mississippi rivers, in Louis
iana'and Texas during the Mexican war,
along tho lakes, into Canada and clown
the liudscu back to Long Island, where
Walt Whitman betook himself once
more to the printer's case.
WHITMAN'S I'lRST AN'll GREATEST WORK.
Up to 1S35 ho had been known, so fur
as !io was known, aimply as a carpcn
tor-printor of no special steadiness. In
1S35, however, appeared his lirst and
most famous book, "Leaves of Grass," a
volurno oi rhapsodical poems, always
without rhyme, generally _ without
rhythm, dealing especially with tlie in
terests involved in American life and
the progress of tho timo. Tlie boo!:
called forth a great amount of praiio
and a still greater amount of blame. _
Ko subject was too small for Whit
man; nothing, however secret conven
tionalism mado it, bat was revealed.
Those who did not object to tho nudity
of tho poems wercofTondcdatthouncmi
vontional form in which they were cast,
and some wero shocked honestly* at tho
poems themselves. Tho first edition oi
this book Whitman set up and printed
himself, and for thirty years ho has
been revising and adding to tho book,
looking upon it as something never to
fail nor to triumph perhaps in evon a
At tho beginning of tho war Whitman
was living in Xew York, but his brother
George was woundedat Fredericksburg,
in 1862, and the poet went to the front
to nurso him, lie remained with tho |
armv until the closo of the war, after
ward giving his experiences in two vol
umes, "Drum Taps1' (lSlio), and "Memo
randa During tho War' (1SG7). llis first
conventional poem is in "Drum Taps"?
"Captain, My Captain"?a poem in
memory oi Lincoln.
A FEYMt THAT WAS NEVER DOWNED.
In 1SU4 ho had been compelled to
give up for a tiino his work as nurse,
because a fever cnuglit in the hos
pital camps anion;: the sick. From the
cirects of this fever Whitman never re
covered fully, though ho returned to his
nursing as" soon as ho was able to bo
about. At the close of the war he ob
tained a clerkship in the interior de
partment, from which he was.dismissed
when his superior officer learned that
ho was the author of "Leaves of Grass."
Ho obtained a clerkship in the attorney
general's oilice, however,which ho kept
until 188*1. ' In February, 1873, ho had a
stroko of paralysis, resulting from his
fever of IStii and the exposures of his
arm/ life, and went to Camden, N. J.
lie was recovering rapidly when, in
May, his mother died suddenly in his
presence. The shock caused a relapse,
and ho was incapablo of any work for
many months. On hid recovery ho re
signed his clerkship and settled in Cam
den, whore ho rested tlio remainder of
ADMITTED TO TnC RANKS OK THE POETS.
Of late years the bitter attacks of
Whitman have ceased, and he has been
admitted to be indeed a poot. Emerson,
in 1855, found beauties in "Leaves of
Grass," even though ho disapproved of
the book, and 6inco then, especially
from England, camo commendation.
William ltossotti published a selection
of tho nooms in lii(>S, and Walter Scott
has published two further, selections,
whilo Edward Dowden, a gontlo critic,
has niado still a fourth selection. Ten
nyson and Georgo Eliot have ranked
Whitman high among Amorican poets,
and the poet has spoken gratefully of
tho "Friendly-mouthed, just opportune
English action," which confronted him
in his troubles.
Whitman was dependent ontirely on
the salo of his books, and while never
rich, of late years has been absolutely
poor. Ho steadily refused to accept:
charity, however. Whitmau was des
cribed by tho admirer who gave him
the titlo by which ho. is most widely
known, that of "tho good cray poet," as
tall and stalwart, his face rosy and
seamed with kindly wrinkles;* with
heavy-lidded, firm bluo eyes, and with
a short, thick beard, and thinly slowinc
hair. Of late years his hair and beard
huvo been almost'snowy white, lie
nuver was married. It wan mid tUut a

?'Gentlemen: When I was 14 years of ago

by an attack of rheumatism, and when I had
partially recovered I did not have tho use of

About a year later, Ncrofnln, in the fcrm of

for eleven years I was an invalid, being con

ten or eleven of theso sores appeared and
broke, causing mo great pain and suffering.
Several times pieces of bono worked out of
the sores. Physicians did not help mo and .
I Became Discouraged
" I went to Chicago to visit a sister, as it
was thought a change of air and scene might
do mo good. But I was confined to my bed
most of tho time. I was so impressed
with tho success of Hood's Sarsaparilla
in cases similar to mlno that I decided to try
it. So a bottle was bought, and to my great
gratification the sores soon decreased, and
began to feel better. This strengthened my
faith in tho iuedlclue, and In a short time I was
