I n the middle of the seven teenth cen tury I.a Salle’s explorations t brought hirn through the wooded J wilderness of Indiana. Shortly 4 there followed Jesuit missionar- ; les from Quebec and in their 4 trail came adventurous rangers I and fur traders. French forts • nnd trading posts were soon es- . tabllshed. In 1763 the British • took possession of this territory • after the French and Indian J wurs, and remained in posses* 4 sion until the Revolution. * One of the boldest campaigns • of the Revolution w»as that of j Clark’s little army, whose tndnm- f itahle courage and audacity final- I ly defeated the large British gar- j rison at Vincennes and won the i Northwest territory for Virginia. * Pioneers from the F.ast and from f Kentucky made their way Into * this new territory, and among * these was Abraham Lincoln’s J family. It was in 1816, the year 4 that Indiana became the nine- ; teenth state, that Lincoln at* 4 tained citizenship In Indiana. J With the increase in population 4 by 1800 Indiana Territory was 1 formed, extending from the Ohio t border west to the Mississippi i and north to Canada. Vincennes » was selected as the first capital. • In 1804, when the Louisiana Pur- j chase was made, the government 4 of Louisiana was placed in the * hands of the Indiana Territory i officials, so that for one year the ? capital of Louisiana was also * at Vincennes In Indiana. ; Although nicknamed the Hoo- • sier State, from the old ; southern slung for rough back- 4 woodsmen, Indinna, with its 36,- ! 254 square miles, its fifteen Pres- 4 identlal electors, and containing * as it does the center of popula- f tion, is considered of utmost im- ! portance politically. t (© by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)

"Perhaps," said the girl. “Still, we were told we would see her. It’s strange we haven't already.” “I’ve been hiding,” said a voice, and Jumping down from the lowest branch of a tree they saw a young lady. She looked quite attractive, hut as though she was very fond of herself. They could see that quite plainly by her manner. “Who are you?” asked the boy, though he was quite sure he knew her name. “My name,” said the young lady, “is I-Told-You-So." “It’s an unusual name," said the girl, for the young lady looked at her as though she should say something. “1 told you so,” said the young lady ! of the same name. “You didn't tell me anything of the | kind,” laughed the hoy.

What care 1 what others think, for I’m so smart." At least this was what the girl felt sure she was thinking to her self. “Why did you say you told us some thing when we’ve never met you be fore?" asked the hoy. “1 said to myself,” answered 1-Told I You-So, “thnt boy or that girl will ! say my name is unusual, and you did. | So!" “Hut you didn’t tell us that," per I THE Merchants who advertise in this paper will give you best values for your money. elated the boy. “I told It to myself, and now I ran tell myself I’m right," geld the young lady. "Do yon talk to yourself much like that?” asked the girl. “Oh, yes,” said the young lady. "And 1 knew you’d ask why T was hiding. That’s why I didn't say anything. I waited to see if I couldn’t say ‘I told you so.’ It's about the same as though 1 had told you so when I told myself so." "My, hut you’re fond of your name." said the hoy, not wishing to argue. "Won't you tell us what you do with yourself all the time?” asked the girl. She wanted to hear of her curious ways which Master Thoughtfulness had mentioned. “Well," said I-Told-Yoit-So, “when things don’t go the way I’ve said they would. 1 hide. I keep perfectly quiet. I never come around and say that I was wrong. Dear me, no. 1 never do ; that. “But Just as soon as something turns out the way I said It would, I come around and I say, ‘1 told you so!’ “Oh, I have a very good time, al ways hiding when I’ve made a mistake, and always appearing when I haven't. That’s the way I do. "They don’t like me much around here, and I really like myself better than anyone likes me. But th«t makes no difference. “I’m hnppy so long as I can say *T told you so.' That Is my Joy In life." “Strange,” said the boy. “Very curious," said the girl. “Well, It doesn't seem curious to me,” said the young lady. “I’m not beautiful, nor am I ugly.
