"That waa the most awful nlnht Iever

"There were 30,000 Con federal cm in

would be heard a demand fur their

words uttered to surging masse* of cxcileil
men quelled the rising storm and
allayed the intense feeling which was
everywhere manifest.
"Amidst the excitement, amidst the
clamor for revenge, and the bitter feelitm
against the perpetrator* of the
foui det?d. was also a profound sorrow.
1 saw more men weep that night than
in all the years of my life. Lincoln was
familiar to the people; he was their
friend- They felt they had lost one
lik? a father. Hut shove and beyond
all there was a fear as to the effect
upon the nation. Fear of what was to
come made the night horrible to men
who loved their country. It was n night
of terror."
Xwrtrlueln Jobmoti.
A most Interesting feature of the reminiscence
by Senator Stewart was the
swearing in as President of Andrew
Johnson.
After a restless night, a night of
such Intensity a* wan never experlencf*<l
la the nation'* capital, not even during
the darkest times of the war. the
morning was dawned. Lincoln wa*
dead! The natlou was without a ruler,
immediate action was necessary or
anarchy would soon reign rampant.

was President pro tempore of
the senate. He had |ir?**lded over that
body since the inauguration. Johnsoibeiiur

In a carriage much the ircrae for

Pennsylvania avenue, noiv .1 smoothpaved
thoroughfare, was little be'ter
than a quagmire. The earrUgo lurched
Into ruts and mud holes. the driver
whipping the Jaded borNfr and vigorously
urging them into a semblance of
? trot. In front of Willard's hotel Senator
Stewart was standing. Senator
F?x?te directed the driver to stop at the
curb.
"Lincoln I# dead." said Foot*;. "We
must awear in Johnson at once. There
must be ,? head to the government."
Stewart got Into the carriage, and
together they drove to the residence ??f
Chief Justice Chase. He Joiu-?l them
when their errand was explained, and I
the three drove to the Kirk wood hotel,
where Johnson had apartment a. The 1
Klrkwood was at th?* corner of Pennsylvania
avenue and Twelfth street.
The Kaleign now stands on tho same !
site.
"We want to see Mr. Johnson," said
Senator Stewart. "No need of sending
up cards: Just tell us where his rooms
are and we will find him."
.Mvunied two small room* at
the head of the stairs. These -were
pointed out to the chief Justice and the
genu tor*. After pounding vigorously
on the door the vice president came
sleepily to it and admitted them.
"We have come to administer the
oath of office to you as President of the
United States." said Chase.
Johnson mumbled something and
went back to his bed room. He appeared
after a time with his pantaloons
and vest on. and was in the uct of putting
on his coat. He was not just the
looking personage . then that would
have been picked out for President, or
for a great statesman. Habits which
had made his inauguration as vice
president an episode in the history of
the senate had tended to make him
appear unfit for the office of President,
but he was the man chosen by the
American people to All the office In
case the great Lincoln should die or
resign, ami he must be sworn In. Under
the constitution the men assembled
there must accept him as the ruler of
the land.

son, Chase, Foote and Stewart. In
solemn tones the chler Justice admlnlstered
the oath which made Johmon
President of the United StatW. After
thin ceremony he seemed to be a little
doubtful a* to what he should do. The
title "Mr. President." by which he was
addressed, seemed to disconcert him
i somewhat.
"Get over to the white house as soon
as possible," urged Chase, "it Is Important
that you should be there soon;
the head of the government should be
In his ofllce In this great crisis."
Johnson said he would go at once,
and the men who had participated In
the ceremony lert hlni. Later In the
day Senator Stewart saw him at the
white house, and he presented a different
appearance, as changed as a
man would be who has had a bath, a
shave and donned a new suit of
clothes. When it was known that the
i new President had assumed the oft
lice quiet was somewhat restored. The

TlfE SHAKERS' IDEAS OF MEDICINE.
Now & days when & man goes to his
doctor, he Is usually told thut he has
some unheard of disease with a long
name, and when he leaves the ofllc?? he
does not know whether It Is St. Vitus
Dance or consumption that Is gradually
undermining his health.
It is therefore refreshing to talk with
the Shakers, for their very simplicity
commands confidence and respect, and
wo have the further satisfaction of
knowing that they have devoted themselves
to the study of disease and Its
cure for more than a hundred years.
The venerable old man whom the
writer saw was only too glad to discuss
his pet subject. He wild that strange as
it might seem, very few doctors realized
thut three-quarters of the most prevalent
diseases were all attributable.to
faulty digestion.
He then went on to say that a child of
average Intelligence knows that putrid
meat or decaying vegetables are polson

uun, HIIU iiiuiii .'v uiviuvu, .... , -
same foods, even If taken Into the stomach
in the freshest possible condition
soon decompose unless digested and absorbed.
In such cases the resulting poisons ??nter
the system, when uches and pains,
weakness and debility soon foiibw as u
natural consequence.
It was recognition of this that led the
Shakers to devote thelP energies to the
perfection of a product which would
stimulate the digestive organs and assist
them to perform their proper work.
The first symptom of disordered digestion
Is the loss of appetite, and the
Shaker Digestive Cordial is wonderfully
efficient in supplying any deficiency in
this respect, at the same time It relieves
all distress after eating. Furthermore;
as was carefully explained by our venerable
friend, it is absolutely harmless.
Belter evidence of the Shakers' confidence
in It could not be found, than in
the fact that they have placed 10-cent
sample bottles In the hands of all druggists.
assured that If once tried It will
produce such immediate and marked
benefit that it will be continued.
He Convinced.
