O. Bishop, ln the Dear-1 born Independent. To those who aro under that Impression, It will doubtless be an agreeable surprise lo learn that more than half a century ago, a young girl, still In her teens, wns given nn order by tho fcdorol government for a statuu of Abraham Lincoln. Her name was Vlnnle Ream. This dainty little lass hud the distinc tion of being the first women In America to be thus honored by the United States government. Her life-like statue of Lincoln Is one of tho most attractive works of art In the Cnpltol at Washington. It stands directly opposite the main entrance to the ro tunda. The career of this most lovable and highly talented woman was of such a character as well calculated to Are the ambition of every girl In this country with the possibility of accomplishing big things in life. No girl can read about the co reer of Vinnie Ream without absorbing Inspiration. When she hesan her dally visits to tho White House to make her study of the groai president, Mies Ream wan only 18 years old. Many years later sho describ ed her experience In these simple but heart-touching words: "The opportunity I had to study Abraham Lincoln was, in deed, unusual, because of its intimacy and because of the unusual conditions under which 1 aw him. When I know him and spent half an hour dally with him while modeling my statue, he was nenrlng that greatest of tragedies In American his tory, tho assassination In the the.ater. So I knew tho ultimate man. I met him also as an impressionable young girl of 16, and the Intuitions of such a child B3 1 wan are very apt to be correct. Tho mind at that ago is as plastic as clay and receWes nn Impression as readily, and that Im pression Is likely to harden and bo per manently retained. At 16 I was mature enough to grasp very well the character of the man. So, 1 think, I am In a posi tion which gives mo an advantage over almost anyone else in the world with ref erence to personal Impressions of the war time president. "Lincoln had boon painted and modeled before, and when friends of mine, first asked him to alt for me he dismissed them wearily until he was told that I was but nn ambitious girl, poor and obscure. He granted mo sittings for no other reason than that 1 was In need. Had I been the greatest sculptor In the world I am qulto sure I would have been refused. "I came for half an hour every day. I was the merest slip of a child, weighing less than SO pounds, and tho contrast be tween the raw-boned man and me wa3 Indeed great. I sat demurely In my cor ner and begged Mr. Lincoln not to allow me to disturb him. It seemed that he used this half hour as a time for relaxation, for he always left instructions that no ono wns to be admitted during that time. He seemed to find a strange sort of companionship in being with me, although we talked but little. His favorite son, Willie, had but Just died, and this had been the greatest porsonal sorrow In a life that was mostly sorrowful. I made hlni think of Willie. He often said so and as often wept. I think that history is particularly cor- dominating Impression that I have al ways carried of Lincoln has been that of unfathomnblo sorrow, and it was this that I tried ft put Into my statue. When he sat for mo I believe that ho let himself I Bn nn.l fll intn t!, mnn.i thnt r,-r ,.,- Ho rarely smiled. 'I remember hlni especially In two atti tudes. The first of these was with hl great form slouched Into tho chair at his desk, his huge feet extended, bin head bowed on his chest, deeply thoughtful.

He was hearing the cries of suffering that were coming from the ""lis. lost iiko nis own. for he had watched the boy play nianv an afternoon from that very window. It .was as ho stood by the window that tho '. Kreat tears would course down his hollow cnceKs, ann no woum De forced to dry them with his handkerchief. On two or three occasions he was o broken with his grief that he sank Into a chair by the window and wept aloud. A big, strong man broken by grief Is always a tragic thing to see, but never was thcro grief equal 10 Lincoln s. "In all the months that I had my daily half hour with Lincoln the order that we wcro not to be Interrupted was broken but twice, and In each of these Interrup tions tho breach was strangely Illustrative of the character of tho man. The first person who intruded upon thb rest hour was a woman of middle ago. She waa the mother ot a boy who had worn tho grey and who had been captured and was In the old Capitol prison. "Tho mother wanted a pass to see her boy, and such a pass requlrad the slgna turo of tho president. Lincoln listened graciously to tho woman's plea, wrote a pass with his own hand and apologized that the boy wan being kept from his home. The second woman waa young and pretty, and sho blushed when she started, fnltoringly, to state her mission. The pres. ident anticipated her request, said that he knew by her blushes that she wanted to see a sweetheart, and granted her re quest ln advance. "Tluvo visits to tho AVhlte Houso con tlnued for live months. Through all this tlmo tho personality of Lincoln was grad ually sinking deeper and deeper Into my soul. I waB modeling tho man In clay, but ho was being engraven still moro deeply upon my heart. "Then finally camo the great tragedy. I was In our house on Capitol Hill that terrible night. My parcntn had been out for the evening. They returned about midnight and us they were entering tho housu someono hurrying past called out to them that tho president had been mur dered. Tho murder of tho president of a great nation Ifl a most terribly tragic thing at best. I well remember how thor oughly awed were all the people I met t tho Unto of the assassination of Garfield nnd of McKlnlcy. That the assassin should reach bo high appalls oven tho per son who has no personal tie to that aig. nltnry. "So of couiso I was moved beyond mean- tire at the death of Lincoln.

She self by the little college In Missouri which friend of the family, thought It would be much nicer to furnish a head of the girl modeled In clay. He therefore took her to the studio of Clark Mills. It was tho first time she had peen a sculptor at work, and It filled rfcr with strange de light. "Why, 1 could do that," she laughingly exclaimed. "All right, little girl," said tho sculptor, "here Is a piece of clay, see what you can do with It." Much to the surprise and delight of Mills she produced a fairly good likeness of him. That was the beginning of her great career. Every day for the next few years was devoted to hard work and study. She still stuck to her Job In tho postoftlce department, but each afternoon when through work she would hurry off to the Mills studio, whero she modeled under the Instruction of the genial Mills, After supper she would go to her room and far Into the night would study hooks on anatomy. She worked so hard that the natural roses faded from her cheeks, and her little body became so thin that she only weighed 90 pounds. But she had found the real reason for. be ing on earth, nnd her success was most marvelous. What a vast difference there was In her coming to Washington after her trium phant years In Kurope. She was beautiful, glftod. popular nnd reigned as leader of the social and artistic sots in the city where she had spent her girlhood as on obscure postal clerk. Then she met the popular and handsome Lieutenant Rich ard Hoxie, of the United States army. Their wedding, which took place In 1878. was one of the most brilliant over staged in Washington. President Grant wa one. of the guests, and the bride was given away by General Sherman. Lieutenant Hoxie. according to the customs of that period, felt that a wife's place was In the home, and that her Interests should center In her husband and society. Tho young wife qulto cheerfully gave up her art, and for 19 years made a home that was the envy of all Washington. But true art Is something that cannot bo cast aside with case or without cost. qimm,... ' . ,., , ' Sickness took possession of Vinnie Ream. The physicians told tho husband sho was ! going to die.
