HAD SEEN UGLIER MEN.
Mr. Baraaa rradirta That Uaeala
WU Ha KoalaatMt
la December, 1S59, Mr. John W.
Ilarman, who was then, m now, ft mer
chant of New York, was In Springfield,
111., where he had legal business with
tU attorney, Maj. Stuart. Abraham
Lincoln's relative and friend. Stuart
was an old-line whig and did not agi-ee
politically with Lincoln nor with Mr.
Ilarman. who wa In full accord with
the newly formed republican party.
One day when business was over, Mr.
Ilarman turned to Stuart and said,
with the emphasis of adeep con-Ictioni
"Major, the next president of the
United Stales U a resident of your
Who hi he?" i. .
Oh, no," declared the major, "that
ran never be, Lincoln', view, on tht
lavery question are altogether too ad
vanced and pronounced." Then he
added: "l)o you know Lincoln?"
Ilr. Uarman replied that he did not
but would be glad to make hit an.
qualnlance. "Come on," said the
major, "and I'll introduce you."
lie turned hi, guwut over to Mr.
Brown, his sotidn-law, who led the
way to Lincoln's office. When they
ntored Mr. Ilarniiin's first vision was
that of a long, gaunt man who sat
with bis back toward the dour, a pair
f long legs curled up beneath the
deal table at which he was t work.
When the two had pad to the front
of the labia and Mr, Lincoln had
looked up, Mr. Brown Midi. ' "Mr.
Llnooln. hre is a friend of yours from
Now York, Mr. Ilarman, who would
like to make your personal acquaint
ance." Lincoln arose and extended his hand.
"I must beg your pardon for the In
trusion," said the duller, "us I have
o business burn, and chiiih only
through curiosity, I have been told
that you were the homeliest man In
Illinois, and I came to see for myself,"
"Well well," said Lincoln, with a
laugh, "do you find the declaration
"I've seen uglier men," Mr. liar
man replied, "but I must confess that.
I would never pick you out for a
handsome man." Then he added:
"But what I came In for, Mr, Lincoln,
was to tell you that the national Re
publican convention of npxt year will
most certainly nominate you as Us
candidate for president of the" United
"I)o you think so?"
"Well I cannot but fcol that you
are too sanguine."
"I am not, and I will tell you why.
Business has called me all over the
West. I have been among the people,
have noted how they feel and hava
beard what they say, and I tell you
nothing but the power of God Almighty
can prevent it."
Mr. Lincoln's whole appearanoa
showed that he was , deeply moved.
His voice trembled and all he could
say was: "Do you think so? Do you
really think so?"
, In July, 1HC0, business onee more
, Harried Mr. Harman to Springfield.
Meanwhile the second national Repub
lican convention hud met at Chicago
and performed its work. Soon after
Mr. Ilarman went over to the old state
house, transformed Into a court house,
whore Llnooln sat upon a horsehair
sofa In conversation with a friend. He
aaw Mr. Uarman when a hundred feet
away, and, jumping up, ran over to
blm, grasped him by both hands,
which he shook vigorously, and said:
"My friend, 1 remember you like a
book! You are the man who predicted
mj nomination and election."
A popular western novelist remarked
the other day, says the Atlanta Con
stitution, that sometimes a fool geta
talked about so much that, the other
fools think he is a great num.
There' is something In this view.
But It is a mistake to limit tho propo
sition to fools. It Is of very general
application, and hits sensible persons
as well as others.
Some yours ago a busy journalist
said to a menu? "I urn done with what
you call work for tho remainder of my
life." "How will you liver' he asked.
