The Ohio state convention
last week, by the decisive
and overwhelming vote of 944
to G, refused to express con
fidence in Mr. Bryan or to
reaffirm the Kansas City
platform. In view of the fact
that Mr. Bryan is not a can
didate, holds no public office,
is merely a private citizen,
there was really no occasion
for the convention to take ac
tion in regard to him ; but,
when the convention refused
to reaffirm the Kansas City
platform, which among other
things declared for the free,
unlimited and independent
coinage of silver at a ratio of
1G to 1, without the consent
of any other nation," that
was significant. It means
that the democracy of Ohio
has realized that it will be
folly to again attempt to con
duct a campaign hampered by
a heresy, which has twice
caused national defeat, and
which has been productive
only of discord in democratic
ranks ; it means that sober
sense and sound judgment
have again been enthroned ;
that the party desires to re
turn to its moorings and dis
card the wild theories which
are not a part of its creed and
should never have been in
corporated in its platform.
Democracy stands for honest
government and equal
rights. It does not believe
in favoring trusts, combina
tions and corporations at the
expejise of the masses. The
Bulletin- has never lost faith,
has always believed the
change would come. Ohio
democrats have cleared the
deck for action, and every
state in the Union should
follow their example.

lil Memoriam.
The committee appointed by the
Presbyterian Sabbath School on last
Sabbath to draft resolutions of re
spect on the death of Capt. R. II.
Wood, our beloved Superintendent,
tendered the following report,
which was adopted :
Whereas, It has pleased God to
remove from our midst, unto Him
self, Capt. R. II. Wood, so long the
Superintendent ot this Sabbath
School, and,
Whereas, We wish to express our
feelings of loss, our appreciation of
his labor of love among us, - and to
pay a fitting tribute to his memory ;
therefore, be it
Resolved, That while we bow in
humble submission to the will of
God, we want to call to mind his
noble life and hold it up to our
school as a model of a soldier of
Christ ever at his post of duty.
He had been Superintendent of this
Sabbath School for eight yews, and
we feel that it could be well said of
him : "Ever Great in thy Faithful
ness." Modest, unassuming, kind,
a pleasant smile for all ; he was
prompt in the discharge of his duties
and very efficient in their perform
ance, lie was as wise as he was
kind, as earnest as he was modest,
and as zealous as he was unassum
ing. Truly we can say, "Know ye
not that a prince and mighty man
is fallen in Israel ?"
Resolved, That a page in our
Sabbath School Record Book be
U3ed to record these resolutions and
that a copy be sent to bis family,
assuring them of our loving sympa
thy in their sorrow, and that a copy
be furnished the papers for publi
cation. W. II. McBride,

Jefferson Davis
and Incorruptible.
From an article in the Lexington
(Ky.) Herald headed "Breckin
ridge's Tribute to Jefferson Davis" :
To-day thousands will celebrate
this uatal day of him whom they
still regard as their chief, their
leader, and their representative. It
was not given to him to lead a suc
cessful war, to establish a perma
nent republic, to be crowned as the
hero of victorious armies, and the
founder of an independent nation.
Liberty has her martyrs as well as
her victorious chieftains. The scaf
fold has often served as the pedestal
upon which she gave immortality to
those she loved and honored. This
Kentuckian loved liberty with as
passionate a devotion as any martyr
who gave life to her service. He
was as brave as the bravest, as ten
der as the tenderest. His personal
gifts, qualities, and virtues were of
the brightest and rarest. We who
followed him can claim him as a
chief without a trace of shame and
with unmixed pride. In private
life a stainless gentleman and consis
tent Christian ; in public life pure,
incorruptible ; on the battlefield
dauntless and superb : in the Senate
eloquent, able and frank ; in the
Cabinet upriglit, competent, and
successful ; in power clement, un
selfish, dutiful ; in prison, patient,
resolute, noble ; in prosperity sim
ple, generous, unostentatious ; in
adversity dignified, unbending, un
murmuiing; always heroic, lofty,
self-poised, and loving a man
among men, a leader among leaders;
living without stain, dying without
fear. His life is now an open book
on whose white pages there is no
Pointed Paragraphs.
"Boston," says a New York edit
or, "is a town known to fame main

The Unostentatious Home Where
Andrew Johnson Lived.
(ireeneville Correspondence Nashville Banner.
It is nearly twenty-six years since
the writer served as pall-bearer at
the funeral of ex-President Andrew
Johnson. On yesterday the body
of his last surviving child, - Mrs
Martha J. Patterson, was borne
from the same roomand buried by
the side of her father on Monument
One of the oldest residents o

brown, wucse residence is across
the street from the Johnson resi
dence. He remembers the time
when Andrew Johnson arrived in
Greeneville with his mother anc
step-father in the year 1825. Is it
true, I .asked of Mr. Brown, as
stated in some of the papers, that
Andrew Johnson came to Greene
ville in an oxcart? "No," he said,
"1 remember tue time. lie came
to Greeneville in a one-horse cover
ed wagon. They weie then called
carry-alls. I myself got the fodder
to feed his horse on the nrst even
ing of his stay in Greeneville. He
said that he had started for the
West, and when told that a tailor
was badly needed in Greeneville,
and that he rad better stop here, he
said that he would consider the mat
ter until next morning, and the next
morning he said that he had con
cluded to stop for awhile."
Andrew Johnson had two broth
ers, John and William. Whether
or not he had any sisters the writer
Dever learned. Neither of the two
brothers came to Tennessee at the
same time, though William came
some time afterwards and spent sev
eral weeks in Greeneville. It is
said that Andrew Johnson and his
father-in-law walked all the way
here, as the vehicle was only suf
ficient to carry the little goods of
the family and his mother, who did
the driving.
The Johnson residence was erect
ed while Mr. Johnson was in con
gress. It is not a commodious
building, although it has been im
proved by the erection of verandas,
and otherwise, since his death. It
stands directly on the street, with no
front yard. In the front part are
the little parlor and the family sit
ting-room. In the rear of the lat
ter is a bed-room, and then a din
ing-room and kitchen. From the
narrow hall a narrow stairway leads
to the second floor, which con
tains four or five rooms. In the
little parlor, which is scarcsly more
than eight feet in height, the bur
1 1 m m T
iai casKet ot Mrs. 1'atterson was
placed, imnediately under a large
oil painting of her father. In this
room, and the other rooms of the
building are various mementoes of
the ex-President. It is strange that
one who has gained so great a dis
tinction in the nation, and whose
mea is were ample, was satisfied to
spend his last days in a building
which is in its arrangements m
ferior to a majority of "the better
class of residences in Greeneville. '
The Johnson residence is, though,
in some respects beautiful. On the
one side is a grassy lawn with elms
and ash shade trees on which wa?
seen the hammock in which the lit
tle grand-daughter,' Martha Land
street, was accustomed to amuse
herself. A path- leads back to a
spring on the premises. A little
garden was on one side of the path,
wiin its tomatoes, cucumbers, and
pumpkin vines. There were flowers,
too, but not in profusion. It was
like other village homes, and this
was one of its beauties.
Mrs. Patterson was, according to
the writer's infoimation, not born in
a log house, as President Johnson
never occupied one in Greeneville.
However, the early home had only
two rooms, and stood on what is
now called Water street. The tail
or shop was not, in fact, built by
Mr. Johnson, but was bought from
William Dickson, and removed to
. ...
us present location several vears
after he came to Greeneville. Mrs.
Patterson's life was an eventful one,
and she certainly deserves all the
praise bestowed on her by the peo
ple of the nation. Her funeral was
simplicity itself. Several hundred
people gathered at the house, which
could contain only a few. of them.
The funeral sermon, in the little par
lor, could be heard by only a few.
Her only descendants, -Andrew J.
Patterson her- son, and Martha
Landstreet, her great grandchild,
were present. In addition Hon.
W. B. Backman, whose first wife
was her niece, and his son were
present at the funeral. -These were
all the relatives, and there were no
friends or visitors from other
places. While business was sus
pended during the funeral services,
there were not more than three
hundred persons present, either at
the residence or on Monument Hill,
where the burial took place.
"At rest" will be a suitable in
scription to be placed on the monu
ment that will mark the resting
place of Mrs. Patterson. In the
stormy scenes of politics but few
women have taken a more active
part. In the gaieties that marked
her father's administration, and
while she was her father's confidante
and the actual mistress of the White
House, she did her part and did it
well. In private life she was es
teemed bv all who knew her. For
many years.ebe was bowed 'down
with bodily afflictions and disease,
and one by one her friends had
been taken from her until she was
alone as the solitary surviving mem
ber of her father's family. Society
had long since lost its charms for
Mrs. Patterson, and almost alone
she occupied the dwelling of her
father, looking backward and not
forward to find a theme for contem
plation. Her death has long been
expected and brings with it no rude
shock to her friends
Younger Brothers Released.
St. Paul. July 14. The Younger
brothers were released from the
Minnesota State peuitentiary at
Stillwater to-day after an imprison
ment of twenty-five years. During
the morning they walked about the
streets of Stillwater unnoticed, for
in their civilian garments they were
not recognized. At noon they re
turned to the prison, where they
entertained some friends, including
several newspaper men, at dinner
in the Governor s private quarters,
In the afternoon thev took a steam
boat ride on Lake St. Croix, and
to-night they are sleeping behind
the prison walls not as prisoners
but more as guests of the Warden
Immediately after chapel services
this morning, while Cole lounger,
head nurse, waa at his accustomed
post in the prison, and Jim, libra
rian and postman, was in the libra
ry, each was informed that he was
wanted "down in front. luey
supposed that there were visitors in
the receptiou room.
But the brothers met a deputy
warden, who handed each a suit of
civilian clothes and a telescope val
ise. The brothers put the clothes
on without delay, and, m company
with several newspaper men, they
started for the gate. On the way
the partv passed a guard and the
prison physician, but neither recog
nized the Youugers in their civil
ian suits.
Their step was elastic and they
walked erect as any of the less aged
in the party. As they emerged
from the immense prison gate they
looked about in a dazed manner.
They 'did not utter a word, but the
expression on their faces showed a
feeling which it would be neces
sary to see to appreciate.
At the edge of town they caught
their first sight of an electric street
car. The party stopped while Jim
and Cole took a second look at what,
to them, was a marvelous sight
The men asked a number of ques
tions about the workings of the
car and discussed the question of
electricity as they proceeded down

which caused a valuable horse much suffering, but
from which permanent injury was avoided by the
timely use of Mexican Mustang Liniment.
La Grange, Term., Jan. 6, 1901.
Lyon Manufacturing .Co.,
Brooklyn, N. Y.
"Dear Sirs : I will say that your Mexican Mustang
Liniment has done a wonderful cure in this part of the
country. I own the stallion known as the " State of Ten
nessee," who has a large patronage both far and near his
service this Spring to date is 102 mares. I was offered
$4JD.co when he was two years old. I refused same. Then
some one took him from the stable and commenced with a
wire and wrapped the right leg from the foot up to his hip,
and after standing all night the leg had swollen so large as to
hide tle wire, and in five days the leg bursted and the flesh
turned inside out. I spent large sums of money to have him
cured but up to five months ago it was quite a failure, and
then a friend induced" me to try a bottle of your liniment. I
used one of the 25-cent bottles because I did not have much
faith in it, but it helped him so much that I bought a second,
third and fourth bottle, which completely cured him. The
reason it took so long to cure is that it had a kind of itching
sensation when it was healing a little, when he would bite it
with his teeth. I put the liniment on' the wound with a feath
er and rubbed the swollen parts with my hand.
Mexican Mustang Liniment seemed to take out all the
itching as well as to cause it to heal rapidly, and he showed
no disposition to interfere with it. The one dollar purchase
has been worth hundreds of dollars to me. I keep your
Liniment in my breeding stable all the time, and to those
who have horses I will say it is the best liniment that money
can buy. I will answer all inquiring letters.
Very truly yours,
For Infants and Children.
