Lincoln's 1'ostor Jlotlicr. Abraham Lincoln was -.even or eight yea r old when his father, Thomas Lincoln, removal from Kentucky to Indiana, wliero in a year or two his wife died. The year following her death Mr. Lincoln returned to Kliz.ibethtown to search out, if possible, a former neighbor and friend, Mrs. Sally Johnston, whom, upon inquiry, ho found still a widow, and to whom ho at ouce made a prtosal of marriage. On entering Mrs. Johnston's liumbla dwelling Mr. Lincoln asked if she remem bered him. "Yes," replied she, "I remember you very well, Tommy Lincoln. "What has brought you back to old Kentucky?" "Well," s&d he, in answer, "my wife Nancy is dead." "Why, you don't say so!" "Yes," said Mr. Lincoln, "she died more than a year ago, and I have come back to Kentucky to look for nnother wife. Do you like me, Mrs. Johnston?" "Yes," replied Mrs. Johistou, "I like you, Tommy Lincoln," "l)o you like me well enojigh to marry me?" "Yes," she answered, f'l like Tommy Lincoln, ard I uiko you you, well enough to marry you, Vutll can't marry you now." "Why not?" said he. "Because .1 am in debt, alitl I could nevei think of burdening the mail I marry with debt; it would not be right)" "What are those debts?' said he. She told him of tho suml, "which," said she, "I have all down he-Win my accouut book." On looking it over, he bti.v that her debti ranged from fifty cents t a dollar and a quarter, and amounted liu the gross tc something less than twelfe dollars not s very startling sum even :n those days o) small things.

V. Clnj ton l'lckcrsglll la London Spectator. Nupoleon III anil the rainier Couture. The favorite painter of thoThlrd Kinplre was Winterhaltcr, as Delaroche had been of the Orleans family. However, an order was given to Couturo for a large picture representing tho baptism of tho little prince imperial. Ho went to work with great ardor, making sketches nnd prepar ing a vast composition. In tho course of the work he had to have sittings from tho various members of the imperial family nnd their Immediate followers. If a por trait painter, when his sitters arc ordinary mortals, has nearly always to undergo many unpleasant scenes, it is easy to judge how his temper is tried and his nerves un strung when those sitters are princes or sovereigns. It is likely that In Couture's case tho sit tings wero not agreeable either to the painter or to his models. Napoleon III wished to direct his artist, and of nil art ists Couturo was tho least easy to direct. Finally one day, goaded beyond endurance, tho painter turned around and said, "Sire, who is to paint this picture your majesty, or I?" And neither painted it. Tho cm peror gavo no more sittings, turned his back on the painter, and his courtiers turned theirs nlso. The order was not maintained, nnd nil tho work of many mouths was wasted. G. P. A.

' Alexander's Mlserulilo Kiul. At n period when most men who succeed are just beginning to mount tho first step ping stone of success Alexander the Great was at the summit of his power. With a trained force of less" than 40,000 men he overran all of what was then considered the civilized part of Asia, and also Egypt. Ho overthrew army after army immeasur ably his superior in numbers so swiftly that tho world was dazzled by the rapidity, scope and magnitude- of his achievements. He was looked upon as a sort of demigod. And yet oven he was sighing because there were no more worlds to conquer. He per ished miserably after a prolonged debauch. His mighty empire melted like a mist under the influence of the rising sun ar his life work went apparently for uothin. Yankee Blade. A Hoso an a Telephone Line.
