Miiry Lilli.ni Ilcrr relates tlie following character is tio anecdote of Lincoln: Ouco while on his way to Washing tea a president the train stopped a it tin time in the town of Alleghany, Pa. Around the station a great crowd gath ered, eager to we the new president. They shouted and cheered until Lincoln bi.d to appear on tho rear platform of his car. He lowed and smiled, bnt tbo crnwd was so noisy he did not try to speak to them. Very near to the platform stood a miner, wearing a red shirt and bluo overall oud carrying a dinner pail. Like the rest, he hud stopped hoping to set Mr. Lincoln. The workman was al most a giant in size and towered bead and shoulders above the crowd. Ho doubt be had heard that Lincoln alto was very tall, and, encouraged by tie friendly face, the workman sudden ly waved bis bare ami above bis bead and railed ont: "Hi, there, Abe Lincoln! I'm 'taller th.in yon yes, a sight tnllcr!" This loud speech silenced the crowd by its boldness, and a laugh arose. But Air. Lincoln, leaning forward with a good bnmorcd smile, said qnietly: "My man, I doubt it in fact, I'm tire 1 am the taller. However, come np and let's measure. " The crowd made way and tho workman climbed to the platform und stood hwk to bark with tha president elect. Each ptit np a hand to seo whoee bead over topped. Evidently Mr. Lincoln wan tho victor, for with a smile of satisfaction ho turned und offered bis buud to his buitiu rival, saying cordially: "I thought yon were mistaken and I wns right. Lot I wished to be sure and to have yon satisfied. However, we are friend anyway, aren't we?" ' Grasping the outstretched hand in a Timorous grip the workman replied: "Yes, Abe Lincoln a long as I live." Dan gat ens Drinking Water. Death lurks in impure water.

Dlacaaslon an Crammsr Between a News paper and a Citizen. The Chicago Inter Ocean becomes both sarcastic and indignant when any one questions the purity of its diction. &o when a reader named Campbell ven tured to criticise expressions used by its society editor tho captions one found that ho hod caught a Tartar. This is the way The Inter Ocean puts it: Inclined with the following letter, received a few days ago, were two clip pings from the society columns of The Inter Ocean: Hero are three barbarisms that caught my eye in this morning's tague of your paper There la no such word as "gowned" it is dearly a Cockney vulgarism that had its origin in London. England "Swcllest" is of the snme sort and same origin No American having any regard for parity of language can use iraeh slang As ell these words appear in mo caiiea "society items' i take it your Society editor is a male or female dude and needs a lesson in language The harm done by the use of such words in your paper is very greet as thousands of children read it and absorb ita words Do stop this Cockney vulgarity J A MTU CAJTPBsXL. There is no doubt yon mean well, Jim, but a term in a night school would bo beneficial even to yon before yoa be gin to give lessons in English. To begin with, yoa wonld be taught there that onr grandfather, Lindley Murray, al ways told us to use periods. Too onght to have known Lindley, Jim. He was a distinguished grammarian, know, or perhaps yon don't know. yon And then, Jim, there was Tennyson. He said of a heroine in one of his poems that she was "gowned in pare white," So you see Lord Tennyson fonnd the word "gowned" to be useful long be fore yon learned to walk steady on your hind feet or to eat with your front hoofs. Webster says "gowned" means "dressed in a gown; clad." You say that these barbarians "caught your eye," and you fail to mention which- eye , they caught How is the other eye? . Von aro right when yon say that onr society crjitor is either a male or a fe male. Do yon belong to one of these sexes? H"e Hispect not When you write again, spell y merely" as it should be. The wny yon spelled it is like spelling your name "camel" instead of "Camp bell. " See that hump? We don't like to offend your sensitive ear, or the other one cither, Jim. Buy Webster's Dictionary mid a fourth read er. Start right, and your sensitive ear may outgrow its affliction. Talna of tha En In Sickness. The value of egg albumen as food in certain diseased conditions is pointed ont by Dr. C. E. Boynton.' When fever is present and appetite is nil, he says, when we want an. aseptic article of diet, the white of an egg nyw serves both as food and medicine. The way to give it is to drain off the albumen from an opening about half an inch in diam eter at tbe small end of the egg, the yolk reuiuiniug inside the shulL Add a little salt to this and direct the patient to swallow it Repeat every honr or two. In typhoid fever this mode of feed ing materially helps ns in carrying ont an antiseptic plan of treatment Fur thermore, the albumen to a certain ex tent may antidote tbe tosincs of tbe disease. Patients may at first rebel at tbe idea of eating a "raw" egg, but the quickness with which it goes down without the yolk proves it to be less disagreeable than tbey supposed, and they are very ready to take a second dose.

SHERIBAN'S ItlDE. fARTS OF IT DESCRIBED BY ONE OP ' THE GENERAL'S AIDS. Ugna of Disaster aad Betreat Greeted the Flacky Rescuer at Every 8tep as Be Seared the Front Mounted oa Bis Black Hone, Little Pha Inspired AIL . We came suddenly upon indubitable evidence of battle and retreat About a mile in advance the read was filled and tbe fields dotted with wagons and men belonging to tbe various brigade, divi sion and corps headquarters, and in among them officers' servants with led horses, and here and there a broken am bulance, antlers' supply trains, a bat tery forge or two, horses and mules hastily packed with officers mess kits, led by tbeir cooks, and now and then a group of soldiers, evidently detailed enlisted men. attached to the head quarters trains. In fact, this was tbe first driftwood of a flood just beyond and soon to come sweeping down tbe road. Passing this accumulation of debris with a rush by leaving tbe pike and galloping over tbe open fields cn tbe side of the road, we pushed rapidly on, but not so quickly bnt that we caught an echoing cheer from the en listed men and servants, who recognized the general and shouted an swung their hats in glee. Within the next few miles the pike and adjacent fields began to be lined and dotted everywhere with army wag ons, sutlers' outfits, headquarters sup ply trains, disabled caissons and team sters with led mules, all drifting to the rear, and now and then a wennded officer or enlisted man on horseback or plodding along on foot, with groups of straggling soldiers here and there among the wagon trains, or iu the fields, or sometimes sitting or lying down to rent by the side of the road, while others were making coffee in their tin enps by tiny canipfires. Soon we began to see small bodies of soldiers in tbe fields with stacked arms, evidently cooking breakfast. As we de bouched into the fields and passed around the wagons and through these groups tbe general wonld wave his hat to tbe men and point to the front, never lessening his speed as he pressed for ward. It was enough. One glance at the eager face and familiar black horse and they knew him, and, starring to their feet, they swung their caps around their heads and broke into cheers as be passed beyond them, and then, gathering np their belongings and sbonMeriug their arms, they started after him for the front; shonting to their comrades farther ont in the fields, "Sheridan! Sheridan 1" waving their bats and pointing after him as he dashed onward, and they, too, comprehended instantly, for tbey took np tbe cheer and turned back for the battlefield. To the best of my recollection, from the time we met the first stragglers who had drifted back from the urruy, his ap pearance and bis cheery shout f "Turn back, men; turnback! F:ice the other way!" as he waved his hat toward the front, had but one ret-ult a wild cheer of recognition, an answering wavo of tbe cap. In no case as I glanced back did I fail to see the men shoulder t,heir arms and follow ns. I think it is no ex aggeration to say that as he dashed on to the field of battle for miles back tbe turnpike was lined with men pressing forward after him to the front. . After the wholo line was thoroughly formed I rode over to my chief and urged him to ride down it, that all the men might see bim and know without doubt that he bad returned and as sumed command. At first he demurred, bnt I was most urgent, as I knew that in some instances both men and officers who hod not seen him doubted his ar rival. His appearance was greeted by tremendons cheers from one end of tbe line to tbe other, many of tho officers pressing forward to shake his band. lie spoke to them all cheerily and confident ly, saying: "We are going back to our camps, men, never fear. I'll get a twist on these people yet. We'll raise them ont of their boots before the day is over. " t At no time did I hear him utter that "terrible oath" so often alluded to in both prose and poetry in connection with this day's work. "Sheridan's Ride," by General George A. Forsyth, U. 8.

"Very few know it, bnt it is a fact, " explained a prominent bnilder to a re porter, "that the pension office building is the largest brick bnilding in the world. It has been subjected to much criticism, bnt it can stand it, for as time passes along there are many things seen about it that escaped notice when it was newer. In all there are over 10, 000,000 bricks in the bnilding. General Meigs took liberties with bricks that no other architect bad ever attempted. lie not only used bricks exclusively for tbe bnilding, bnt be used them in construct ing tbe stairs throughout tbe building. In the matter of stair bnilding bricks have often been used for the riser, but the step has always been of iron, wood, slate or stone. In the pension office both 'riser and step are of brick. As a brick building, therefore, pare and simple, it is unique in construction outside of the fact that it is the largest exclusively brick building In the world. "Wash ington Star. Kot Dteeourajred. A duffer of a sportsman went out partridge shooting, accompanied by an Irish keeper who was good natured enough to make all kinds of excuses for his patron's bad shots.

Afterward a Minneapolis Times re porter hunted up the Aledo states, man. who iu the coarse of an inter view said: I admire President McKinley very much and. I feel happy in re sembling him in something, if it only be physically. Bat I should be more happy if I "could boast of a mental resemblance to him " The men have met. once at least, in the Marquette club, of Chicago, in the spring of 1896. when Mr. McKin nie was introduced to Mr. McKinley. Mutual friends had told Mr McKin ley about the resemblance, and bear ing in mind the saying that a man never is able to get an adequate idea of his own appearance, it may be taken for granted ibat the then pres idential candidate of the repnblican party viewed his double with a great deal of interest.

Any one who faua heard tbe mega phone mnst have woudered at the ex traordinnry power of inrreating sound tlmt is produced by form, and I wonld like to rail attention to one point in connection with rotting dogs ears that I do not remeualxT to have seen men tioned anywhere that is. from an acoustic standpoint: I have lately purchased a ttnall York shire terrier, imported frcm England only a few months spa Ira cars were clipped in Englaud after w bat the seller of the drip duclurcd to be "tbe very lat est sty la " The ears were first clipped and then stiffened np with three effects on the dog: First. That tho bnza of a bee or fly causes him to retreat cndi r cover of safety. Second. That he ducks his head when about to lie putted, a sore sign of the length of time the pain of the oper ation muKt have lasted. Third. (An effect I had not expect ed. ) That he has absolutely no idea of tbe direction of sound. In the ears of a mastiff dog any one who obeerves tho shell-like form of the ear opening may easily iir.apino the im mense power of Fneh a trcmpetlike in strument to increase tho volume of sound. A change in the acoustical ar rangement of the flap of the ear would necessarily entirely puzzle and bewilder the owner as to the direction of sound, and this one point on car rntting wonld seem of itself to rondemn the practice. Our Animal Friends. A Natural StacneU Professor Smytbe was once lecturing in a provincial town on natural philos ophy, and in the course of bin experi ments he introduced a most powerful magnet, with which ho attracted a block of iron from a distance of two feet "Can any cf you conceive a greater attractive power?" demanded the lec turer, with an air of tiiamplu "I can," answered a voice from the audience. "Not a natural terrestrial object?" "Yes, indeed." The lecturer, somewhat puzzled, challenged tbe man who had spoken to uame the nrticle. Then up rose old Johnny fcowerby. Said he: "I will give you facts, professor, and you can judge for yourself. When I was a young man, there was a little piore o natural magnet done up in a neat cot ton dress as was railed Uetsy Maria. She could draw me 14 miles on Sunday over plowed land, uo matter what the wind or weather. There wasn't uo re eistin her. That magnet o' yourn is pretty good, bnt it won't draw so far aa Betsy Maria.
