RESCUED A PRESIDENT.
How Llnooln Vh Bared from Drowning
llowcver poor the Lincoln home may
have been, it affected the now child but
little. He was robust and active, and
life is full of interest to tho child happy
enough to be born in the country, llo
bod several compaulous. There was
hlfl sister Nancy, or Sarah both names
arc given to her two years his senior;
there was a cousin of his mother, ten
years older; Dennis Hanks, an active
und ingenious leader in sports and mis
chief, and there were the neighbors'
boys. One of the latter, Austin Gol lo
be r, still tclLii with pleasure how he
hunted coons and ran tho woods with
young Lincoln, and onco even saved his
"Yes," said Mr. Gollahcr, "tho story
that I once saved Abraham Lincoln's
life is true, but it is not correct us gen
"Abraham Lincoln nnd I had been go
ing to school together for a year or
more, and had become greatly attached
to each other. Then school disbanded
on account of there lclng so few schol
ars, and we did not hoc each other for
n long while. One Sunday my mother
visited the Llncolns and I was taken
along. Abe and I played u round all day.
Finally wc concluded to cross the creek
to hunt for somo partridges young
Lincoln had seen tho day before. Tho
creek was swollen by a recent rain,
nud in crossing on the narrow footing
Abe fell in. Neither of us could swim.
I got a long pole and held it out to Abe,
who grabbed it. Then I pulled him
ushorc. He was almost dead and I
was badly scared. I rolled and pound
ed him in good earnest. Then I got
him by the arms and shook him, the
water meanwhile pouring from his
mouth. By this means I succeeded in
bringing him to and he was soon all
"Then a new difficulty confronted us.
If our mothers discovered our wet
clothes, they would whip us. This
wo dreaded from experience, and de
termined to avoid. It was Juno; the
sun wan very warm, and we soon dried
our clothing by spreading it on the
rocks about uh. Wo promised never
to tell the story, and I never mentioned
the incident to anyone until after Lin
cola's tragic end.
"Abraham Lincoln had a nister. ner
name was Bailie, and she wm a very
pretty girl. Sho went to school when
hc could, which was not often.
"Yea, if you muit know, Sallio Lln

reason for my warm regard for Abe.

of the children. And I never saw them
again." McClurc's Mngnzine.
A GREAT SATISFACTION.
How Ilnrsn (iiit Uvnn with
A correspondent tells n story of a
handsome black horse, so big and
strong that he seemed hardly to feel
the weight of the heavy delivery wagon
with which he luiulo the. rounds of tho
neighborhood. Ills driver whs n brutal
fellow, who ought to have been the
creature dritcu. HIowh, kicks and an
gry words were the only caresses he
ever licstowed upon his steed, and these
the horse suffered quietly for many
a long day, till dually even his endur
ance gave out.
One hot morning the man reined the
horse in roughly by the curbstone.
On dismounting he seemed to think
tho wagon too near, and harshly or
dered his steed to back, emphnsUlug
tho command with u cui from ills whip.
Tho horse backed obediently, though
angrily, while the man, heated by his
exertions, tool; o(T his coat, and, hnving
hung it over the dashboard, disap
peared in the house.
The horse waited until the driver won
ut of sight, then, looking around, he
saw tho coat hanging only n short dis
tance from his heels. Instantly n
change enmo over him. He actually
seemed to laugh as he lifted one foot
nnd let It fly at the coat.
Finding that he could not hit it well,
ho began to lcat a regulnr tattoo upon
it; first with ouo foot, then with tho
other, and, finally, ns he grew excited,
with both at once.
Surely no cost ever had n more thor
ough dustlug. Out Hew note books, pa
pers ami handkerchiefs, and rolled into
the gutter, but the horse kept on until
he heard a door slam, and he knew his
master was returning. Then, with .1
final kick that sent the coat under the
wagon, he settled sleepily down in the"
shafts nnd pretended to be watching
a pair of mules that had just gone by.
He didn't seem to mind the ships the
driver gave him while picking up his
belongings, and when he started off he
looked up nt the window nnd appeured
to wink at those who had been watch
ing him and half wishing they could
reward him with a peck of oats.
A I'ollto Lord Mayor.
Among the stories in circulation
about the late Joseph Harris, the well
known master of the city of London'
school, who died recently, is ono in con

worthy gentleman was not a Greek
scholar, and the Greek oration on
.speech day in Christ's hospital, to
which, on a memorable occasion, he
listened, was not intelligible to him,
save one word. That word was
l"0wdenH o pronounced and Mr.
jHarris used to tell his.frionds privately
how each time it occurred In the Greek

Mr. Lincoln Nelson, of Marshfield, Mo.,
writes: "For six years I have been a
sufferer from a scrofulous affection ol
the L'lands of mv neck, and all efforts
of physicians in Washington, D. C,
Springfield, III., and St. Louis failed to
reduce the enlargement. After six
mouths' constant treatment here, my
nhvsician urued me to submit to a re
moval of the gland. At this critical mo
ment a friend recommended S.S.S.,
and laying aside a deep-rooted preju
dice against all patent medicines, 1 be
gan its use. lleforc I had used one bot
tle the enlargement began to disappear,
and now it is entirely gone, though Inm
not through with my second bottle yet.
Had I only used your S.S.S. long ago,
I would have escaped years of misery
and saved over r,so."
This experience is like that of all who
suffer with deep-seated blood troubles.
The doctors can do no good, and even
their resorts to the knife prove either
fruitless or fatal. S.S.S. is the only
real blood remedy; it gets nt the root of
the disease and forces it out perma
