It is probably cot generally known that 'Squire L. D. Chaddon of this city has known and been intimately acqdaiuted with some of the greatest people of this century, but such is the case. Born many years ago when the ctntury was young when Lincoln was but a lad of nine, and Gladstone yet a stripling; when the soldiers of the war of 1812-14 were almost as fresh from the scenes cf war as are now the heroes of Santiago he has met and known some of the greatest characters living in his time. Mr. Chaddon was born in Coopers town, New York, and when old enough learned to be a carpenter. The first work that he was ever sent to do was to repair the yard fence of James Fenimore Cooper, the great novelUt, and many of the scenes and places described by Cooper in his "Leather btocking Tales" were familiar to Mr. Chaddon In his boy hood. Before he was twenty years old he moved to Utica, where he became acquainted with Roscoe Conkling and Horatio D. Seymour. lie often saw Grover Cleveland, although he did not knyw him well, but was well ac quainted with Miss Rose Cleveland (who was the lady of the White House until Cleveland's marriage). For a number cf years Mr. Cbadaon worked at a planing mill a few mile from Utica and was frequently visited by Conkling and Seymour and the three would often hunt together in ile forests. Ia the fifties Mr. Chad Ion moved to Champaign, 111., and while living there held the office o justice of the peace a part of the time and at another time was deputy Bher iff. In both positions he m .-t Abe Lincoln frequently add heard him tell many of bis quaint stones not all cf which will do to print. While David Davis was judge, Lincoln sat as judge pro tern one evening and tried a :asa in which Mr. Chaddon was plain tiff. The case is mentioned in the 'Life of Lincoln" by William II. nerndon, who was Lincoln's law partner for twenty-five years. The story is to be found in the second volume, on page 318, and is as fol' jws: "Several of us lawyers," remarked one of his colleagues, "in the eastern end of the circuit annoyed Lincoln ones while he was holding court for Davis by attempting todefend against a cote to which there were many mak ers. We had no legal, but a good moral defense, but what we wanted most of all was to stave it eff till the next term of court by one expedient or another. We bothered 'the court' till lateen Saturday, the day of adjourn ment. He adjourned for supper with nothing left but this case to dispose of. A'ter supper he heard our twad dle for nearly an hour, and then made this odd entry: 'L. D. Chaddon vs. J. I). Beasly et a!, April term, 1S5G, Champaign county court. Plea in abatement by B. Z Green, a defend ant not served, filed Saturday at U o'clock a.m., April 24, ISjG, stricken from the files by order of court. De murrer to declaration, if there ever was one, overruled. Defendants who are served now, at 8 o'clock p m., of liie last day of the term, ask to plead to the merits, which is denied by the court on the ground that the offer comes too late, and therefore, a9 by nil dicet, judgment is rendered for plaintiff. Clerk assess damages. A. Lincoln,' Judge pro tern.' "The lawyer who reads this singular entry will appreciate its oddity if nobody else does. After making it, one of the lawyers, on recovering from his astonishment, ventured to in quire, 'Wen, Lincoin, how can we get this case up again?' Lincoln eyed him quizzically a moment, and then answered, 'You have all been so ciichtv smart about this case, vou can find out how to take it up again yourselves.'" Probate Court Notes. The final account of S. C. Burnett, guardian of E. C Shipley, has been filed, showing a balance of f 109 due the heir. A. Logan has been appointed ad ministrator of the estate of Stephen Jones, deceased. A.C. Lambe, Chas, B. Lambe and N. Loofbourrtw have been appointed appraisers of the per sonal property of the deceased. t The will of II. 2f. Eggleston, de ceased, has been admitted to probate. W.A.

Dolan Collins of Oxford, was la the I city Friday. i Peter ileiss, the old German from Enporia who came to Wellington a I weekor so ago for the nurcose nl havi I Joseph Oswald, a farmer living near Caldwell, arrested for unlawfully co- naoiting with his wife, has been surd by MrA Hem for divorce. After re citing iD her petition thai they were married In Germany 29 years ago, Mrs. Ileiss chages her husband with negligence of duty, loafing, failure to provide, and extreme crueltv. tv-p defendant frequently threatened her nte, ice plaintiff says, and in 188(5 she was compelled to leave him. They were then living at Jamestown, Kas. The plaintiff charges that in Cloud county, Kansas, the defendant was convicted or a heinous enme, towit: poisoning a well with the intention of committing wholesale murder. For tuis crime, Mrs. Heiss says, her hus band was convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for a term of years. The parties to the suit are past mid dle age. We failed to make mention in our last week's issue of the birth of the "only boy in the west." Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Barrett of San Francisco, Cal., are the proua parents. A letter written to parties in Oxford states that the happy grandmother presented it with a diamond ring when it was a day old and its grandfather was so happy that he has quit thinking about coming back to Kansas.-Oxford Register. Mr. Barrett will be remembered in Wellington as "the Jail sycamore of the Arkansas." He studied law under W. W. Schwinn, and married Miss Eva Benton of Wellington. G. W. Milne returned from Chicago Saturday, where he went a week ago with Will Carter, who wa3 supposed 'o be afflicted with cancer. An exam ination was made in a hospital and Carter was found to be suffering with a foreign growth on the rnil.ir lv.np. cj'used by an injury received some time ago. An operation was rer formed and Carter will return home as soon as his shoulder heals, prohibi ten 'days hence. Geo. T.Pitts Friday received a letter from Mr. Perry, presiient of the company that owns the Welling ton waterworks plant, savins that the company would accept the offer or the city of 5o0,000 for the plant. The bonds to purchase the plant were voted at a special election December 30 last. The deal will be closed as soon as the bonds can be floated and a deed to the property made out ana signed. ' Prof. Nash of Oxford.was in the city t"day. lie says Postmaster Maggard of Oxford died this morning. lie died at 3 o'clock this morning of pneu monia. Everett Maggard's father, Dr. Maggard, is seriously 111 with la grippe and was unable to get out of bed when he heard of his son's death. Journal 13lh. A report reached Wellington -Friday afternoon to the effect that Capt. Grinstead had lost his life in the Philippines by being crushed. The report is unconfirmed, and is probably untrue. Capt. Grinstead's name is not mentioned in the cable grams from General Otis. Judge McBrid-3 and Stenographer Herrick returned from Winfleld Sat urday. Geo. Mack, the Winfleld barber who killed a man In Arkansas City last Fourth of July, got, ten years in the penitentiary. Geo. Banks, the negro rapist, was sent up for five years. Word has t2cn received from Nw Mexico that Geo. Hunt is quite sick. His mother, Mrs. S. E. Hunt. win probably go to Rosweil to wait on uim.

There is no uncertainty about the merits of S. S. S. : every claim testimony of those who have been cured by it and know of its virtues by experience. Mr. L J.

I was o disabled for a long while that I was wholly unfit for busiress. One of the best doctors treied me constantly, but did me no good. I then tried various blood remedies, without the least benefit. S. S.
