In n circus tout pitched on "the little r.irm that raised a man," President Itooscvclt. as tlu representative of the whole American people, toilay form ally accepted the little one-room cab In which was the birthplace of Abra ham Lincoln, and which, with the 110 acres of rough land surrounding I:, will be transformed Into a national shrine In honor of tbe great Presi dent. The cornerstone of the noble memorial hall and Lincoln museum, a (treat granite edifice to cost n quarter-million dollars, was laid by Presi dent Roosevelt as a feature of the day's exercises.

Thi' road to the farm was spread with cinders,, affording a fine i highway f -r the vehicles enlaced by the Kentucky committee to -any Its INtlntniislied guests from the rail, road station to the Lincoln farm.

Where it Pays to Trade Save Your Coupons I " PEKSOXAL KEMIMSCEXCE OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN. . . . ' (By B. C. Kidder.) An the anniversary of the birth of one of the world's Immortals, Abra ham Lincoln, Is upon us and as his fellow countrymen, especially, love to dwell upon the least incident of hls remarkable career, It occurred to me' to give the following Incident of which I was an observing participant: j It happened while General McClel-. Ian was reforming and organizing the Army of the Potomac for his descent j upon Richmond in the following spring. 1S62. The general was glv- trig the president and his cabinet his j last grand review In the fall of 1881. j Now it so happened that the com-j I any to which I belonged' was doing ( picket duty, or outpost duty, near a; place called Munson's hill, between ' Wash:i.gton and Fairfax, C. H., where' we were only about 40 rods from ; the confederate lines. We had a line; of rifle pits in which we would lie! and fire whenever we could see a bead bob, around and they would do the siime, scarcely a day but what we : would "end back a dead or wounded man, or both. We were relieved of duty nearly ever:.- two days, while we rested in camp and cleaned up our accoutre ments. We had rome In from this duty on the morning of the day of th. grand review, hence our time was Pmltcd !n which to get our guns and things In presentable chape. Hut the b"ys were so anxious to look up on "Oil Abe" that they would attend that review If th'-y never had any rest. Ho after burnishing up as best we could, we found ourselves In line In front of as distinguished a body of persons as stood upon the earth that day, or any other day, before or since. Pre-eminent, towering above them all, mentally and bodily, was Abra ham Lincoln. There was Wm. H. Reward. Edwin M. Stanton, Gideon Wells Chat. Sumner, Geo. G. Mc- Clellan, the Due De Chartres, the Count de Paris, the Prince de Join ville, of McClellan's staff, with all their "Grand Crosses of the Legion of Honor," for our general was nothing If not spectacular. After the incident of Mr. Lincoln's little Tad and the pony, for It was' on this review that Incident happen ed, the army opened ranks for In spection by the commanding general, accompanied by the president. They slowly passed down the line, Mr. Lin coln giving a nod, a smile and occa sionally a word of encouragement, and the general now and then taking a soldier's gun and commenting on its, condition. As they slowly approached our po sition it became quite evident that Company "C" was getting very ner vous, for was not our guns In the worst possible shape? And surely they would notice them and they did. That Is Just what McClellan did. "Young man, what ails your gun?" right before the president of the L'ni ted States. (My vote went for Mr. Lincoln when he ran for president next time.) While the general was examining some of our guns and telTng us what to do, the president was kindly ask ing us when we went on duty, when we came off, etc. As they turned away, Mr. Lincoln says: "Well, gen eral. I am not certain that you ui. I would do any better." Thus It was those little trifles In the makeup of the man, those little words of kindness, that made him beloved by all with whom he came In contact. Business Location for Rent.

IiHTraswl Sale of American Fruit Other IinHrtatlons. Consul-Genera! George E. Ander son reports from Rio do Janeiro, that in spite of the general decrease in Im ports in Brazil during 1908 there was an increase in Imports of fresh fruit, concerning which he says: The imports of this class of goods, not always differentiated In the re turns from imports of fresh vegeta bles, amounted in the first 10 months of 1908 to $644,005 as compared with $619,495 in the same period of 1907. Much of this Increase represents In creased Imports of apples from the United States. .Some of this fruit has come In the limited cold storage of fered by shipping coming this way, but most of it has come packed with ice in ship's compartments, some of it coming without cold storage of any kind. The loss of fruit in the latter method Is great, but the expense of importing It Iced is also very great, thetrip through thetropics In either case being very destructive to fruit or to Ice. Prices brought by the fruit here are very high, but the expense of Importation. Including the very high import duties, are great, and the re sulting profit Is n'-t out of the ordi nary. Aside from Imports of apples the vast mass of imports of apples sist of grapes from Ma-leria and Por tugal proper. with a firm of roller-skate manufac turers In the L'nited States has open ed large rinks In seventeen cities of Scotland, England, Ireland and Wales. These rinks accommodate on an average about 5,000 skaters each. K Is stated that the company finds It difficult to keep pace with the de mand fur more links, so great Is the popular enthusiasm for this pastime. Ten thousand pairs of ball-bearing steel-roller skates are provided for the crowds attending the Olympla rink alone. Hy the middle of Janu ary It Is estimated that more than 100,000 pairs of skates will be In use on the rinks of this single American company. There Is no doubt that the practice will be Increased and spread, and that the demand for new skates of the finest type and most up-to-date pattern will be In general request In all English cities. The aMentlon of American manufacturers Is conse quently invited to this market at the present time. Widow Watolicn Buttle Between) Men Who Were Infatuated With IIT. Posloge, Mo.
