young man's tailoring business was
neither very huge nor very profitable.
It Bhowa that his prices were extremely
low. It shows that he was often glad
to take in payment for his work flour,

Andrew Johnson's handwriting was
bad and his spelling was faulty. It is
not strange that these things should be
so, lor he did uot learn lo write until
after he was married. His wife taught
him to write; he had learned to read

She it was who educated him. A wo
man of intelligence, refinement and
generosity, she devoted her life to her

and deserved no little share of the cred

In 1X21, at the age ol 21, Johnson en

elected to several local offices. He

served so well that, thouirb originally
a democrat, he was nominated on the

His later life was stormy. Immedi
ately upon his accession to the pres

dissetiftioti witlt congress as to the con
ditions upon which the seceding state
should be allowed to return to the Un

congress passed them over his veto. In
1806, attended by members of his cab
inet, he made a tour through several of
the Northwestern states denouncing
the action of congress as rebellious ana
appealing to the people to support him.
But at the congressional elections of
that year the policy of congress was in
dorsed by large majorities.
Finally, the house of representatives
impeached the president for high crimes
and misdemeanors, and be was tried
before the senate and acquitted. He
died in 1875, just after he had been
elected a United States senator.
The account book of this man, who
filled the highest and most honorable
office In the United States, shows him
to have been in early life very illiterate
and very poor. The book is a lesson to

County Debt Reduced to $75,000.
Probably no county in Orceon has a&

out ol debt in the past lew years than

the county was four years behind in the
payment of outstanding warrants. On
August 7, UHW, County Treasurer Hamp
shire issued his first call for warrants
after assuming office in the previous
July. His call on that date was for war
rants registered prior to September 1,
18!Hi. On April 18, of this year, he is
sued a call for warrants registered prior
to January 1, 1902. Thus in 1900 the
county was four years behind in meet
ing its debts, whereas now it ia only one
year and three months, or in other
words in 18 it had a debt amounting
to about 200,0(H), whereas now the
debt is in the neighborhood of 175,000.
