BUYS ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S CANE New Yorker Obtains Relic of the Fa mous War President. A walking stick, which, until tht death of Abraham Lincoln, was his cherished possession and constant companion. was sold at public auc tion in New York last week. From $25. the first bid. the price advanced to $145. and it was d told for that sum* .o H. H. Wilbert of 52 Broadway, an ardent admirer of the great presi dent. The cane, which is 'onger than the ordinary ones on account of Mr. Lin coln's great height. Is black, with a i buckhorn handle. The wood is stud ded with fourteen knots, each having a top of silver, up on which one let ter of Lincoln’s name is engraved, so that the whole series of letters from handle to fer rule spells “Abra ham Lincoln.” A metal band Joins the handle to the stick, and this bears an inscrip tion showing that the cane was pre sented to the pres ident by his "Old Chum. S. Strong.” In 1860. On the handle is another plate which shows that the stick was given to the late Frank B. Carpen ter. the artist, and personal friend of Lincoln, by Mrs. Lincoln. In 1891 Carpen ter was penniless and pledged the stick to his cousin. Fannie Mathewson, in return for a loan of SSOO. About two years ago the artist died. He had not redeemed the pledge. Fannie Mathewson. through her attorneys, authorized the sale. The price re ceived is considered exceedingly small as $1,500 would have been aaked for the cane in a private sale. A Woman’s Reasoning. Mrs. Lillie Devereux Blake, the no ted woman suffragist, is convinced that Mayor-elect McClellan "will do his best to give New York a good" government.” She arrives at this con clusion by a process of reasoning which is perhaps feminine. “I remem ber his mother.

Some of us do not. because we cannot —though most of us think we are warblers of divine melody. The really artistic whistler, he who knows when the occasion is ripe for him to purse his lips and give his safety valve free vent, is not the tooter of things frightful and heart rending. Ever strike you that the in nocent (?> whistle is capable of ren dering something profane? Ever real ize that the mild little whistle could cuss up and down the gamut of «ouud in a manner profoundly blasphemous? It can, it can! If you doubt it watch your churchly friend pounding a nail —thumbnail. Meant to hit the other nail. He pops the afflicted member in his mouth, rolls nis eyes toward the horizon and does a redowa, polka, and two-step all in one movement. Then he whis tles. Most men would emit cusswords, but not he; at the same time he is profane, wretchedly profane. He be gins with a soft sound like the cooing of doves—but the refrain ends in a screech of poignant agony that lifts your hair. He is whistling swear words, and that's all there is to It. Old men cater to the tunes of other days and are sorry and mournful per formers with the lip flute. They carol the song of childhood with an aban don that makes the hearer wish for a paradise in some forest solitude where *ound is not. Young men warble through the strains wrenched from the popular operas with freedom and disgraceful want of music, so disgrace ful that the patient mule sauntering along the towpatb wants to go away and deliver up the goods, mortality, and quit his Job then and there. In there are few good whistlers; too Couldn't Fool This Boy. on Grand street there is a little shop where they deal In surgical in struments and things like that, says the New York Press. In a closet they keep a long-jointed skeleton. The skeleton is nicely mounted and con nected with an electric battery in such away that by touching a button it dances and gesticulates in a furious manner. One of the salesmen in the place is so thin that dogs follow him on the street. This salesman sold a nice bill of goods to a doctor up town. The doctor was in a hurry and sent his boy after the instruments. The boy entered the store and asked for the salesman. He was busy and the office boy asked the doctor's boy to sit down. The two lads got to talking and pretty soon fell to bragging. "Guess you never seen ’em cut a feller's leg off." said the doctor's boy. "Dat's nothin': I seed er chap killed plumb dead on der trolley on der Bowery onct," retorted the store boy. “I bet yer never walked through a graveyard at night," remarked the doc tor's boy. Then a horrible thought came to the «tore boy. Africander the Turf King. With the racing season of 1903 on the running turf at a close, so far as the leading stables are concerned, the good cold Africander stands out as the bright particular star of the year as a money getter, with a little more than $70,000 as his winnings. This is a remarkable showing for a 3-year-old and has seldom been surpassed, al though it is by no means a record. Africander's winnings place him high up in the list of American 3-year olds. and entitle his sire. Star Ruby, to second place in the list of Ameri can sires for the year. By their vic tories in the Brooklyn and Suburban handicaps he and Irish Lad excel the 3-year-olds of all previous years, being the first to win these events, and un d*r weight never before carried by 3- ytfcr-olds In these races. As showing the great uncertainty of the racing game it may be said that as a 2-vear old Africander was a very ordinary colt and gave no indication that the following season would find him the best coit in the United States. In the all-agod division Waterboy leads, with between $40,000 and $50.- 000 to his owner’s credit. Among the The Very Smart Young Wan. "Eureky!" said young I^atherhoad. And he thought this thought, did he: • Just wait till I start out, and then I'll let these fogies see That they're too slow for to-day. yon know': They cannot strike Its gait. I'll teach 'em how to capture fame And fortune while you wait. And he smiled a smile as he thought a while. And he laid him out a plan To win more gold than a bank could hold. Did the very smart young man. ••My sire's a good old soul.'' said he. ••But oh! It would drlv- m e mad To save and slave from here to the " grave. ~ . As has my poor old dad. And after I’ve b«ien gone a while •Twill be a Joy profound To come and show folks how I 11 sow My stack of- wealth around." And he saw. did he. glad things to be. When hia course began. And he paused to get a cigarette. Did the very smart young man. SKETCH OF JOHN STUART MILL Philosopher of a Nervous and Irritable Disposition. Describing hi* impressions of John Stuart Mill Sir Leslie Stephen says: "I heard him speak in the house of commons. Instead of an impassive philosopher I saw a slight, frail figure, trembling with nervous irritability. He poured out a series of perfectly formed sentences with an extraordi nary rapidity, suggestive of learning by heart, but when he lost the thread of his discourse closed his eyes for two or three minutes till, after re gaining his composure, he could again take up his parable. Although his bad. too. Whistling expands the lungs, re rives the flow of stagnated blood, and drives away the blues —that is. som»- times. As generally practiced, it ere ates a desire to commit murder, use * sandbag for overt purposes better guessed at than printed. It was easy for the average tooter •o sail through Pinafore, and he could too. because it was dead easy. There are no more Pinafores, but the boiler plate whistler Is still with us day and night. Once while I was vainly woolr.g sleep I heard a songbird under m> window. The breezes of the Florida coast came lo my ears along with the sighing of palms; the tender note of the whippoorwill and the entrancing melody of the mocking bird greeted me and lulled me to dreams of rap .„re; the prattling of little children at play came with the sobs of surf caroling through the zephyrs of night I listened to the songs of unmeasur able delight as they poured from the lips of a really artistic whistler. I rose, went to the window, and saw— a sable ashman dump a can Into his wagon. I found him the next morning and asked him to come and pour his me! ody into my phonograph. His dark visage split across the center, and he said inocently: "I seldom whlssles. boss. 1 on'y duz it when I don't knows it." I have not heard a true artist since The best and greatest I ever did hear the ashman, seldom whistles but when he does he puts the song birds out of business. Then, why whistle?— Horace Seymour Keller in Philadel phia Ledger. "Dat's nothin'.” said he. “We’ve got somethin' worse dan dat here. Did yer ever see der devil?” "Naw,” said the doctor’s boy. "Wat's he look like?” "Looks like der devil.” said the store boy. "Come here.” and he led the way to the closet with the skele ton. "He looks Jes' like dis,” and he threw open the door and touched the button, setting the arms and legs of the skeleton going in all directions. With a howl of terror the doctor's boy darted out into the street. He ran half a block away and there he stood looking back, his eyes popping out of his head. Just then the thin sales man entered the store and learned that his customer's boy had been there Jij for the goods. After considerable questioning the boy in the store con fessed what had happened. The salesman went to the door and saw the doctor's boy standing on the other side of the street. “Come over here, boy.” cried the salesman. "It's all right.” The boy took one look at him. saw how cadaverous he was, and yelled back : "No.*yer don't! I know yer. even if yer has got yer clothes on!” 2-year-olds Hamburg Belle, winner of the Futurity, captured the largest amount, about $45,000. These figures are nowhere near the limits of former years. When Mr. Keene's Domino was two years old his winnings reached the enormous total of $186,000, which is the American record, and one which has rarely ever been surpassed since racing began. In order to do this Domino had to go through the season with a single defeat, and was fortun ately in condition to start for all the rich stakes in which he was engaged. Another surprise of the year is to be found in the fact that Ben Strome leads all sires in winnings of his get with $99,000 to his credit. Heretofore the Ben Stromes were regarded as very speedy, but were regarded In many quarters as lacking in the higher racing qualities. His record this year, therefore, will do much to revise these opinions. From the standpoint of high-class racing the season was a brilliant one. with the western multi-millionaire, J. B. Haggan. carrying ofT the honors. His stable was stronger than ever be fore. and bids fair to be still more formidable in 1904. And there came a day when he went away.

Some of his doc trines 'were specially irritating to the rows of stolid country gentlemen who began by listening curiously to so strange an animal as a philosopher and discovered before long that the animal’s hide could be pierced by scornful laughter. To Mill they rep resented crass stupidity and he be came unable either to conceal hia contempt or keep his temper.” Money isn't the root of all evil. What's the matter with a atray hog 1« your garden?
