Abraham Lincoln's) Candidacy for tho
Qeorgo Alfred Townsend.
Vnder the Cooper Iuetituto is a large hall,
where Abraham Lincoln made the great speech
which called the attention of the east to him as
a presidential quantity tha year before he be
came president After Lincoln had been
beaten by Douglas for senator ha was brought
out for president at tho town of Decatur,
where ths Illinois State Republican convention
was hold, in May, 1859. Gov. Oglesby then an
nounced that an old Democrat desired to make
a contribution to the convention. Two fonoa
rails ware then brought in, decorated, and
inscribed: "Abraham Lincoln, tho rail can
didate for the preaidenoy in 100." The two
rails ware from a lot of 3,000 made
in 18.' SO by Thomas Hanks and Abe Lincoln.
For about fifteen minutes there was tremend
ous cheering and excitement Lincoln took
the platform, and gave his reminiscences of
making rails. He then visited Kansas, Ohio,
and, finally, New York. He arrived in this
city February 25, 160, on an invitation to
speak at Beocher's church in Brooklyn. He
spent a whole day at the Aator house on Satur
day, reviewing this elaborate address; and,
having gone to hoar Beecher on Sunday, ho
spoke at the Cooper Institute on Monday
night Tho platform was crowded with the
Republican loaders of tho city, Peter Cooper
among them. Wm. C Bryant presided, and
the solid and elaborate character of the address
satisfied the Republicans here that if Seward
did not get the nomination, aud Lincoln did,
there would not bo such a great difference in

It has been the custom to talk of a man's
wanting to come home and put on his slippers
and dressing-gown, both physically and men
tally, and needing no intellectual mate to help
him do it; but that sort of talk which inti
mates that there is but one party to the home,
and that one the man, ceases to have much
yaluo in the light of the now scarcely con
troverted admission that every woman ia an
individual, with the rights of oue
Still, any oue would suppose it self-
evident that if a woman is allowed a

evening came, for tho dresstng-gowned and

A .Bathetic Carpet Without Know-
St Paul Pioneer-Press.
It is rather curious to observe that France,
Italy and Germany, hitherto wedded to bare
floors and center rugs, are now coming
into the full use of unmitigated carpets in the
corners as well as tho ceuters of the rooms,
just as we are beginning to adopt their mode
of doing without There is no gainsaying that
carpets are warm and snug all winter, no
matter how full of dirt they-may become by
spring, when they can be easily cleaned A
carpeted room has a cosy, home-like aspect
wnicn no room wua a waxeu noor can possi
bly possess, no matter how gorgeous or
rsthetic is its contra Abuston or Scinde ; and
it is certainly lees trouble to keep it looking
cleanly, as all can testify who have the care of
polished wood floors, showing ere.-y drop of
water, boot-heel mark, or speck of dust
The dull, neutral tints, the discharge of all
colors, which taste nowadays declares is true
art, can easily be arrived at on our floors, with
out leaving hare, or paying great prices for
B-stliatiC patterns. Many a prairie farmer's
wifo arrives at the consummation devoutly
wished for. but not always attained by her
town acquaintance, and has an asthetio carpat

The Telephone la Wisconsin.
The bald-headod Sun man answered a tele
phone call on Saturday last, and a man's voice
spoke about having some business with tha
editor, and he was asked to step up to the office.
His answer waa, "Why, thunder and lightning,
man, I am in Ripon." That knocked the editor
cold, and he gave tha man a soft answer, when
suddonly a female voice asked who it was talk
ing, and on being told it was the bald-headed
Milwaukee man, she said, "Why, good heavens,
I am the operator at Fond du Lvx" That
knocked the editor colder, and after a fow
words another female voice obipped in and
said the owner of it was in the Onnkosh office.
The thing was getting interesting, snd tha
editor waa just going to get in his work, giving
the Oshkosh girl a breeze, and tell her to be
ware of Colorado senators, when another girl
broke the connection with a laugh that fairly
paralyzed him. He thought it was an old
time laugh that he knew, and he began to
smile right through the telephone, when the
girl said she was a total stranger at Green Bay,
but she read Tho Sun. Then the Milwaukee
office cut it off, and we realized that the tele
phone to the country was a success, becanss
we had tried it Wo doubt if any citizen of
Milwaukee has talked with as many people, in
as many different places, in so few seconds, as
tho above experienced.

well-known inoujgerio duriiig an engagement

James M. E-reamor, city engineer and super
intendent of the Atlantic and Gulf Coast canal
and Okeechobee Land company, has issued an
interesting statomont of the results thus far
attained by that company in its efforts to re
claim 11,000,000 acres of low lands in the Flor
ida evergladoa The drainage problem means
simply the relieving of the land from surface
water immecRately after the rainy season.
This, it has been demonstrated, can be done by
the-construction of can a La and the opening of
old river Lods. Tho work already performed
has resulted in tho reclamation of 330,000
acres of land, for which the state has donated
14.',000 acroa in return in compliance with tho
terms of tho compaaj's contract with
the state. A drainage canal, six foot deep and
forty feet wide, has been constructed from Lake
Tobopokaliga to La'co Cypress, a distance of
three and three-fourths mi.es. Work was be-
fnu at this point iu July. 13S2. Since then
ohopckaliga which has an area of about
twentv-four square ruiios, Ua-s been lowered!
thirty inchca. A canal three and a hakT
mi its long hue boon cut. below KiBshnme
in order to draw off tho waters of lakes Isa
bel, Alligator and Kadt Tohopoaliga, which
aro clustered logether m that vioiuity. There
is now leia cut. a canal. froin Lake Flirt on the
upper Calloosihitchie river, to Lake Okeecho
bee, a distance of eleven miles, which is de
signed to be six feeb d;p aad twe:ity-five feet
wide. Operations hive bet-u conducted with
out interiuLiaiou during a year. The char
acter of the work necessitates the
daily exposure of the force to the weather,
nothwithaunu'ing which the men have
retained their health. It is proposed, by either
canals from Lake Okeechobee to tho south and
east, to lower the water surface of Okeechobee
eight feet below its present level. This onoe
accomplished the bordering lands of the lake
and etreania tributary will be improved, and
upwaru 01 i,ouu,uuu ot ine nonest acres will
thus be reuderrt susceptible of successful cultivation.

Sleeplessness is more common than at first
might be supposed. Its causes are many, but
one has lately been discovered by an old Boston
physician which seems to contradict the pop
alar opinion. It is the want of food. It ia
generally supposed to be injurious to eat late
at night, but unless dinner or supper has been
late, or the stomach disordered, it is in many
casos harmless and beneficial, i. e., if one be

Vanderbilt and Uia Sana.
Goorge Alfred Townsend.
From what I hear, William Vanderbilt and
his grown-up sons do not always look through
tho samo glasses. William's father left the
boys largo sums of money, in general 20,000
shares apiece. This has brought them for sev
eral years past au annual income of 1160,000.
But to Cornelius Vanderbilt, tho old commo
dore's oldest grandson, h-s left 0,000 shares,
giving him aa income of almost $500,000 a

their father, he boya have used as hey

Camoron among the Vand-jrbilta. Don Cam
eron is celebrated for contradicting his father,
and saving no when tho old man would say

Vanderbilts. When he sits down to play poker
with his father he makes his sire ante up every

man. "I beg your pardon." s lys tho son, "you

Never-heleaa, William K. is described aa being
