place where they stopped over night.
they traveling by horse and covered
wagon, he met some little boys about
his own age, he being six years old,
and as they were playing, a carriage
drew up, and out stepped a tall, lank.
angular man and addressed the boys,
saying: "Say, aren't all you boys
democrats?" They did not respond
readily, being slightly backward and
bashful, until he turned to the car
riage and took out some nice red
apples and said all who are demo
crats may have one of these red
apples. They were all democrats in
an instant. Just why Honest Abe
took this tactic was a puzzler as he
was looking for republican votes as
this was his first campaign for the
presidency. However he was elected.
and Mr. Massie wondered just why
Lincoln took this plan of getting
acquainted with the lads and like
wise their parents. Mr. Massis has
