Following the court about 011 the circuit was 110 doubt the joy of Lin coln's life. He was .so fond of it that lie declined a flattering offer to enter a lucrative law partiiiTsliip iu Chicago, because, as lie contended, it would ne cessitate more or less confinement in the office and therefore keep him off the circuit. Seated in a one horse bug gy, behind a sorry looking animal, lie would set out from Springfield, to be gone for weeks at a stretch. The law yers, as he drove into each successive place, eagerly anticipating a new stock of stories, gave him a cordial weloome, and the landlords hailed his comim with delight, for he was one of tne most patient and uncomplaining of guests. "If every other fellow," re lates one of his colleagues, "grumbled at the Indifferent accommodations and scant fare which greeted us at many of the dingy taverns we struck, Lin coln said nothing.". Ilis forbearance In this regard well warrants the ob servation lie is said on one occasion to have made—that he never so complete ly felt his "own unwortliiness as when he stood face to face with a real, live hotel clerk." How ho appeared on the circuit may be gleaned from this sketch of him drawn by Ilenry C. Whitney, one of his colleagues In central Illinois: "Ilis hat was brown, faded uiul the nap usu ally worn or rubbed off. He wore a short cloak and sometimes a shawl. His coat and vest hung loosely 011 liis giant frame. His trousers were inva riably too short. I11 one hand he car ried a faded green umbrella, with 'A. Lincoln' in large white cotton or unis •w liu letters sewed 011 the inside. The knob was gone from the handle, and a piece of cord was usually tied round the middle of the umbrella to keep it from flying open. In the other hand 'lie carried a carpetbag, in which were stored the few papers to lie used in court and underclothing enough to last till his .return to Springfield."—Century. Sure Unit. "How did you manage to sell that piece of goods that's all out of date to Mrs. Ilifil?" Clerk—I told her it was a great bar gain, but 1 thought Mrs. Itichcoin had had it laid aside for one of lier daugh ters. Then she took it right off. OlYeiiKlve Boot Illui'lilnjv.

Does it pay an acorn to become an oak'! Does it pay to escape being a rich ignoramus? Does it pay to fit oneself for a su perior position? Does it pay to open a little wider the door of a narrow life? Does it pay to learn to make life a glory instead of a grind? Does it pay to add power to the lens of the microscope or telescope? Does it pay to taste the exhilaration of feeling one's powers unfold? Does it pay to know how to take the dry, dreary drudgery out of life? Does it pay a rosebud to open its petals and lling out its beauty to the world? Does it pay to push one's horizon farther out in order to get a wider out look, a clearer vision? Does it pay to learn how to center thought witn power, how to marshal one's mental force effectively?—Suc cess. The Doctor Hod Nothing to Say. A certain physician told some of his patients that as long as they kept their feet dry they would be safe from the attack cf the grip. He was surprised to receive a letter from one of his pa tients in which the latter said that he had two wooden legs and yet he had the grip for five consecutive years. The letter was unanswered.—Albany Jour nal. BIG WEEK III SOCIETY Many Social Events Take Place jj Last Week. THREE DAYS OF RECEPTIONS Mrs. C.W.

In the Case Brought on by the Schriver Brothers. BUTARE WINNERS IN ANOTHER Cases Growing Out of The Barnes Cattle Transactions Are Settled at Fort Dodge. eral district court at Fort Dodge last week. The cases growing out of these transactions have been watched with interest by the people of Denison ow ing to the fact that the cattle buyer mentioned, L. J. Barnes, was at the time a resident of this city. The Bank of Denison is also interested because the cases have arisen from telegrams pur ported to have been sent by them The case of Scnriver Bros. vs. the Western Union Telegraph Company has had a checkered career in the courts. The point at law involved was the lia bility of the telegraph company in the case of messages received over the tel ephone. The case was given its second trial last week and was decided in favor of the plaintiffs. The first trial was held at Fort Dodge in 1002 when the case was also decided in the favor of the plaintiff. The telegraphj company then appealed the c.jse to the United States circuit courts of appeals at St. Paul in may 1903 and 1904 the decision was reversed at St. Louis and remained for a second trial becuuse of an error in the Judge's instructions to the jury. Iu 1902 Barnes was buying cattle and was in the habit of paying for them by a check on the Bank of Denison.'The IxiuK was paid by sight drafts on the commission men in Soutn Omaha where he sold the cattle. On March 13, he bought 89,000 worth of cattle of Schriver Bros, ot Britt. and offered in payment a check on the Bank of Denison which Schriver Bros.'refused. He then offered to go to Denison and have the bank here wire if they would except the paper. The Britt firm con sented to this and instructed the Com mercial Bank of Britt to ship the cattle on the arrival of the telegram. A few days after the telegram arrived bear Lug the signature of the Bank of Denison and the cattle were shipped to Barnes, who in turn sold them at Omaha. The proceeds of this sale were used in paving a number of sight drafts against him. The day following he wired Schriver Bros, to come aud get thoir cattlc, as he was unable to pay for them. When payment of the draft was demanded of the Bank of Denison they denounced the telegram as a for gery. The operator had received the message over the telephone and he was unable to identify the sender. Barnes instituted bankruptcy proceedings and soon after went to his old home at Fayette county where he was arrested on an old indictment and sent, to the penitentiary where he now is. Schriver Brothers began suit for re covery of their money and since that time the case has been before the courts- The other case involved was that o£ the Bank of Havelock againstthe tele graph company and the circumstances were much the same as in the case of the Schriver Bros., except the responsibil ty of the telegraph company in receiv ing messages over the telephone was not involved. Barnes bought $.'!,500 worth of cattle from Schriver Brtohers on which the Bank of Havelock held a mortgage. Barnes offered a check ou the Bank of Denison iu payment for the cattle which was refused and as in the former instance he offered to come to Denison and have the bank wire their acceptance of the paper. As soon as the telegram arrived the mort gage was released and the cattle were shipped. Again the Bank of Denison declared the telegram a forgery and refused to honor the paper. The Bank of Havelock sued the telegraph company for the amount lust but when the case came to trial at Fort Dodge, the Judge, on motion of the attorney for the defendant, instructed the jury to return a verdict for the de fendant on the plea that the bank ^hould have waited for the arrival of the draft before releasingthe mortgage. Little Luxuries the Beat. After all, it is a wide question wheth er the little luxuries enjoyed by the poorer classes and which consume their scant fortunes do not, in the long run, contribute more to the happiness of the human race than do the untold millions of the earth's money kings.—Philadel phia Tress.
