Tmk New York Shh hi a thorn In tho

change tho simile a little, a two edged
word in tho belly. Tho Sun beliovea
sow and always lias bolioved in protoo
Hon, but when tho national convention
f tho democratic party adopted a free
trade platform, or what approximates a
ireo trado platform, Dr. Dana's pacr
inaugurated a campaign for consistency.
Jt Insists that tho domocratlc party
ledecni its pledges.' No ono knows bettor
than Dr. Dana that tho disruption of tho
femocratie party is tho logical sequence
of the policy ho advocates, and it
'uy be added, no one enjoys tho pros
tjpsct more than Dr. Dana. The Sun
is rapidly getting the democratic party
into a tangle, and the venerable editor,

Tho only thins that frUjhtcncd ooplo In this
city was tho ill-timed falluro of the Capital
National bank, and tho collapso of that Institu
tion cannot bo attributed to tho uenerul lluan
clnl depression. It was duo nltoothor to tho
thlovlnti raacnllty of C. W. Mosher. It tho
Capital National hadn't boon stolon empty, con
fidence lu this city would not hnvo boon
materially shaken, and tho storm would hnvo
boon weathered lit oxcollent shape.
As It Is, It is doubtful If any city of Its slzo In
tho country, particularly In tho west, has stood
tho strain hotter than Lincoln. Fow lmvo dono
as well. It has bcooino manifest that tho busi
ness of this city is established on a prottysocuro
.foundation. Thoro havo only boon ono or two
failures and they wore not Important. It Is not
probablo that there will bonny moro.
Tho business of local merchants continues to
improve. In tome branches, shoes for instanee,
trado is particularly active, and business gen

Socrotary Furnas, of tho state board of agri
culture, was in thoclty this woek. ToaCot'HlKR

are particularly Interested in tho fair this year,
they can rest easy. I havo Just mado a wager
that tho receipts will be larger thau last year,
and I am not going to lose. I can atato posi

A HOMELY HERO.
"Poor Abo Doilgol"
That's n'uat thoy cnllcd him, though
ho wasn't any ooror than othor folks
not bo poor as some. How could he be
poor, work an ho did mid steady an ho
was? Worth a whole grist of such bait
an hix brother, Epho Dodge, and yet
thoy never called Epho poor whatever
worse name thoy might call him, When
Epho was off at n show in the vlllago,
AiK was following tho plow, driving
straight furrow, though you wouldn't
havo thought it to bco tho way his hobo
pointed. In winter, when Epho was
taking tho girls to singing school or
spoiling bco or somo other foolishness
out till after 0 o'clock at night, like as
not Abo was bunging over tho flro
holding a book ho tho light would shino
first on ono page nnd then on tho other,
and he turning his head as he turned
the book and reading first with one eyo
and thon with tho othor.
Thoro, tho murder's out. Abo couldn't
read with both oyes at once. If Abo
looked straight ahead, ho couldn't sec tho
furrow nor anything else for that mat
ter. His best friend couldn't say but
what Abo Dodgo was tho crossoyodest
cuss that over was. Why, if you wantod
to seo Abo you'd stand in front of him,
but if you wantod Abo to seo you you'd
got to stand behind him or pretty neAr it.
Homely! Woll, if you mean dowmight
"humbly," that's what ho was. When
ono eyo was in use tho other was out of
sight, all except tho white of it. Humbly
ain't no name for it. Tho girls used to
say he had to wako up in tho night to
rest his face, it wits so humbly. In school
you'd ought to havo soon him look down
at his copylook. Ho had to cant his head
clear over and cock up his chin till it
pointed out of tho windor and down the
road. You'd really ought to havo seen
him; you'd havo died. Head of tho class,
too, right along; just ns near to the head
as Eph was to tho foot, and that's saym
a good deal. But to see him at his deskt
Ho looked for nil tho world liko a week
old chickon pookin atatumblebugt And
him a grown man, too, for ho staid to
school winters so long as thoro was any
thing moro tho teacher could teach him.
You see thero wasn't anything to draw
him away; no girl wouldn't look at him.
Lucky, too, scoin tho way ho looked.
Well, ono term thoro was u new
teacher come regular high up girl,
down from Chicago. As bad luck would
havo it Abe wasn't at school tho first
week hadn't got through his fall work.
So she got to know all tho scholars, and
they was awful tickled with her every
body always was that knowed her. Tho
first day alio coino in nnd saw Abe at his
desk she thought ho was squlntin for
fun, and sho tipped nnd laughed right
out. Somo of the scholars laughed, too,
at first, bnt most of 'em, to do 'em jus
tice, was a lectio took back, young as
they was, and cruol by naturo. (Young
folks Is most usually always cruel
don't seem to know no better). ,
Well, right in the middle of tho hush
Abo gathered up his books and upped
and walked outdoors, lookln right ahead
of him and consequently seeiug the
handsome young teacher unbeknown to
Sho was the worst cut up you over did
seo, but what could sho do or say? Oo
and tell him sho thought ho win mukin
up a face for fun? Tho girls do Bay that
come noon spelt, when she found out
about it, sho cried just fairly cried.
Then sho tried to bo awful nice to Abo's
oruery brother Ephe, and Epho ho was
tickled most to death, but thut didn't
do Abo any good Epho was jest ornery
enough to tnko care that Abe shouldn't
get any comfort out of it. They do say
sho sent messages to Abo, aud Epho
never delivered them or else twisted 'em
so as to make things worso and worse.
Mebbe so, inebbe not Ephe was ornery
enough for it.
'Course the schoolmarm she was
boardln round, and pretty soon it come
time to go to ole man Dodge's, and sho
went; bnt no Abe could buo ever see.
He kept away, and as to meals he never
set by, but took a bite off by himsel'
when he could get a chance. ('Conreo
bis mother favored him, being he was
so cussed unlucky.) Then whou the
folks was all to bed he'd come in and
poke up tho fire and peek into his book,
but first ono sido aud then the other,
samo us ever.
Now, what does schoolm&'am do but
cotuo down ono night when she thought
ho was nbod and asleep and catch him
uuawures. Abe knoved it was her quick
as he heurd tho ruatlo of her dress, but
thero wusn't no help for it, so he just
covered his crosseyes with his lunula
and she pitched in. Whut she said 1
don't kuow but Abe he never said a
word, only told her lie Uiun't blume Her,
nit a mlto; ho know sho couldn't help it
n moro than he could. Then sho asked
him to ccue back to school, and he
answered to pleaso excuse him. After a
bit sho asked him if he wouldn't como to
oblige her, aud ho said ho calculated l.c
was obllgiu her morn by stayin uway.
Well, come to that bIio didn't know
what to say or do: womanlike she upped
and cried, and thou she said ho hurt her
feelings. And the upshot of it was by
said he'd come, ami they shook hands on
it Abo givin his other hand of conrse.
Woll. Aho Vent hi wnril unil took Utl

and such schoolin as there was that
winter! I don't believe nny regular
academy bad more leuruiu and teachin
that winter than that what that district
school did. Seemed as if all tho scholars
had turned over a now leaf. Even to ild,
ornery, no account Epho Dodgo couldn't
help-but get ahead some but then he
was crazy to get tho school ma'am, and
she never paid no attention to- him, just
went with Abe. Abo was teachin her
mathematics, seeing that was the one
thing where he knowed wore than she did
outside of farmin. Folks used to-say
that if Ephe had Abe's hood or Abe'had
Ephe's, faoe the schoolnta'am would
have half of the Dodge farm whenever
olman Dodge got through with k, bat
neither of them did have what the ether
course. Judge Caton w.o i,i utiu oiucu
ho got to bo judge of the supromo court
and chief justico nt that. Well, ho had
a farm down there not far from Vox
river, and when he was thero ho was
just n plain farmer like tho rest of us,
though up in Chicago ho was n high up
lawyer, leader of tho bar. Now it so
happened that a young doctor named
Urnlnard, Daniel Urainard, had just
como to Chicago ami was startin in, and
Squlro Caton was hclpin him; gave Mm
desk room in his ofllce nnd mado him
known to tho folks Kinzies nnd Butter
fields And Ogdeiin nnd Hamiltons and
Arnolds and all of those folks about all
thoro was in Chicago in thoso days.
Brainnrd had been to Paris Paris,
Franco, not Paris, Ills., you understand
and knew all the doctorin thoro was
to know thon,
Woll, como spring, Squire Caton had
Doc Bralnard down to visit him, and
thoy shot ducks and gecso nnd prcirio
cldckons, and somo wild turkoys and
deer too. Gamo was just swarmln at
that timo. All the whllo Caton was doin
what law business thoro was to do, and
Bralnard thought ho ought to be doin
somo doctorin to keop his hand in, so ho
asked Caton if thoro wasn't any cases he
could take up surgery cases especially
he hankerod after, seoin ho had more
carving tools than you could shako a
stick at. Ho asked him particularly if
thero wasn't anybody ho could treat for
"strabismus." Tho squfro hadn't heard
of anybody dying of that complaint, but
when tho doctor explained that strabis
mus was French for.crossoycs ho natu
rally thought of poor Abo Dodgo, and
tho young lawyer was right up on his
car. Ho smollcd tho battlo nfar off,
and 'most beforo you could Bay Jack
Robinson the squlro and tho doctor wero
on horseback and down to tuo Dodgo
farm, tool chest nnd all.
Well, it so happened that nobody was
at homo but Abo and Epho, and it didn't
tako but fow words beforo Abo was
ready to set right down, then and thoro,
and lot anybody do anything ho was a
mind to with his mlsfortunnto eyes. No,
ho wouldn't wait till tho old folks como
home. He didn't want to ask no ndvico.
He wasn't afraid of pain nor of what
anybody could do to his eyes couldn't
bo mado any worso than they were, what-
over you did to 'em. Tako 'em out and
boil 'em and put 'cm back if you had a
mind to, only go to work. Ho know ho
was of ago and ho iruessed ho was master
of his own oyes such as thoy wero.
Well, thoro wasn't nothing elso to do
but go ahead. Tho doctor opened up his
killing tools and tried to keop Abo from
seeing them; but Abo, ho just como right
over and peeked at 'cm, handled 'em and
called 'em "splendid,'' nnd so they wero,
barrin bavin them used on your own
flesh and blood nnd bones.
Then thoy got somo cloths and a basin
and ono thing another and sot Abo right
down in a chair. (No such thing as
chloroform in thoso days, you'll remem
ber.) Aud 'oquiro Caton was to hold an
instrument that spread tho eyelid wide
open, whilo Epho was to hold Abo's head
steady. First touch of tho lancet and first
spurt of blood, and what do you think?
That ornery Epho wilted and fell flat' en
tho floor behind tho chair!
" 'Sqniro," said Bralnard, "stop around
and hold his head,"
"I can hold my own head," says Abe
as steady as you please. But 'Squiro Ca
ton ho straddled over Epho and held his
head between his arms and tho two han
dles of the eyespreuder with his hands.
It was all over in half a minuto, nnd
then Abo ho leaned forward and shook
tho blood off his eyelashes and looked
straight out of that eye for tho first timo
sinco ho was born. And tho first words
ho said were:
"Thank tho Lordt She's minet"
About that timo Epho ho crawled out
doors, sick as a dog, and Abo spoke up.
"Now for tho other eye, doctor."
"Oh," Bays the doctor, "we'd hotter
tuko another day for that."
"All right." says Abo, "if your hands
are tired of cuttinyou can make another
job of it. My faco ain't tired of bein
cut, I can tell you."
"Well, if you'ro game, I am."
So, if you'll beliovo me, they just set
to work and operated on tho other eye,
Abe holding his own head as ho said he
would and tho squire holding tho spread
er. And wheu it was all done tho doctor
was for putting a bandage ou to keep
things quiet till the wounds all healed
up, but Abe just begged for ono sight
at himself, and he stood up and walked
over to tho clock and looked in tho glass
and says he:
"So that's tho way I look, is it?
Shouldn't have known my own faco
novel saw it before. How long must 1
keop tho bandago ou, doctor?"
"Oh, if tho oyes ain't very soro when
u trake up li tho morning you can
tako it off if you'll bo careful."
"Wako up! Do you s'poso I can alijep
when Bucha blessing has fallen on me?
I'll lay still, but if I forgot it or you for
ono minute this night I'll bo bo ashamed
of myself that it'll wako mo right up!"
Then tho doctor bound up his eyoa,
and tho poor boy said "Thank God" two
or three times, and thoy could seo tho
tears running down his cheeks from un
der tho cloth. Lord! It was just as
pitiful as n broken wing bird!
How about the uirl? Well, it was nil
right for Abo and all wrong for Ephe
all wrong for Ephe. But that's all
past and gone past and gone. Folks
como for miles and miles to see cross
eyed Abe with his eyes as straight us a
loon's leg. Dr. Brainnrd was a great
man forever after in those parts. Every
where else, too, by what I heard.
When tho doctor and tho squiro como
to go, Abo m6ko up, blindfolded as he
was, and says ho:
"Doc, how much do you charge a
feller for savin' his life making u mnu
out of a poor wreck doiu what ho
thought never could be done but by
dyin and goin to kingdom come?"
"Oh," says Doc Bralnard, says he, "that
ain't what we look at as pay practice.
You didn't call me in I camo of myself,
as though it was what wo call a clinic.

What did Abo say to that? Why, sir,
ho never said a word, but thoy do say
tho tears started out again, out from
under tho bandago and down his cheeks.
But then Abo he had a 5-year-old pet
maro ho'd raised from a colt pretty as
a picture, kind as a kitten and fast as
split lightning nnd next time Doc came
down Abo he just slipped out to the
barn aud brought tho maro round and
hitched her to tho gato post, and when
Doo camo to bo going, says Abo:
"Don't forget your nag, doctor; she's
hitched at the gato."
Woll, sir, oven then Abo had the hard
est kind of a time to get Doo Bralnard to
take that mare, and when ho did ride off
leadin her it wasn't half an hour before
back she came lickety split. Doo said
she broke away from him and put for
homo, but I always suspected he didn't
havo no use for a boss ho couldn't sell nor
hire out, and couldn't afford to keep in
the village that was what Chicago was
then. But como along toward fall Abe
he took her right up to town, and then
tho doctor's practice had growed so much
that ho was pretty glad to get her, and
Abe was glad to have him have her, see
ing all that had corny to him through
bavin eyes liko other folks that's the
Bchoolma'ntn I mean.
How did tho Bchoolma'ain take it?
Woll, it was this way. After tho cuttin
Abo didn't show up for a fow days, till
tho inflummatiou got down and he'd
had some practice handlin his eyes, so to
speak. Ho just kept himself to himsolf,
enjoyin himself. Ho'd go round doin
tho chores, singing so you could hear
him a mile. Ho was always great on
Bingin, Abo was, though ashamed to go
to Bingin school with tho rest. Then
wheu tho poor boy began to feel like
other folks ho went right over to whore
tho Bchoolma'am happened to bo boardln
round ami walked right up to her and
took her by both hands and looked her
straight in tho faco and said:
"Do you know me?"
Well, sho kind of smiled and blushed,
and thon tho comers of her mouth pulled
down unci sho pulled ono hand away,
and, if you beliovo mo, that was tho
third timo that girl cried that season to
my certain knowledge, and all for nothin
"What did sho say? Why, sho just said
she'd havo to begin all over again to get
acquainted with Abo. But Ephe's noso
was out of joint, and Epho knowed it as
well as anybody, Ephe did. It was Abo's
eyes to Ephe's nose.
Married? Oh, yes, of courso, and lived
on tho farm as long as tho old folks
lived, and afterward, too, Epho staying
right along like tho fool ho always had
been. That feller uover did havo as
much sense us a last year's bird's nest.
Alive yet? Abe? Well, no. Might
havo been if it hadn't been for Shiloh.
When tho war broko out, Abo thought
ho'd ought to go, old as he was, so ho
went iuto tho Sixth. Maybo you've Been
a book written about tho captain of
Company K of tho Sixth. It was Com
pany K ho went into him nud Epho,
And ho was killed at Shiloh just us it
always seems to happen. Ho got killed,
and liJd worthless 'brother como home.
Folks thought Epho. would me liked to
j snar-y the widow', but Lord! she uover
0 and Twelfth
had no such an ideal Such bait as be
was compared to his brother! She never
chirked up to speak of, and now she's
lead, too, and Ephe he just toodles round
taking caro of tho children kind of a
he dry nurse. That's about all he ever
