The account of Lincoln's lovemaking ia
kls history by Nicolay and Hay seems almost
ominous when read by tho light of later
knowledge. Tho anxictios and foreboding!
and absolute agony of tho future president
on the eve of marriage, tho most incredulous
might say, presaged the destiny that im
pended. For no one knows the character of
Abraham Lincoln, his godlike patience, his
ineffable sweetness, his transcendent charity
amid all the tremendous worries of war and
revolution and public affairs, who is igno
rant of what ho endured of private woe, and
no one rightly judges the unfortunate part
ner of his elevation and unwitting cause of
many of his miseries, who forgets that, she
had "eaten on tho insano root that takes the
Tho country knows but has preferred to
forget the strangeness of Mrs. Lincoln's con
duct at intervals after her husband's death.
Many of the most extraordinary incidents in
her career were not revealed, out of delicacy
to others and tenderness to one who had been
the sharer of Abraham Lincoln's fortunes
and tho mother of his famMy; but enough
was apparent to shock and pain tho public
sense whsn finally the conflict with her own
eon, so highly respected, tbe dragging of
their affairs into a public court, tho neces
sary supervision of the poor lady's finances
and the restraint of her actions, if not of her
person, disclosed tho fact that her mind had
Tho first time thatl saw Mrs. Lincoln waa
when I accompanied Mrs. Grant to tho
Whito House for her first visit thero as the
wife of the general -in-chiof. The next that
I now recall was in March, 18C4, when Mrs.
Lincoln, with the president, visited City
Point. They went on a steamer, escorted
by a naval vessel of which Capt. John 8.
Barnes was in command, and remained for '
some weeks in the James river under the
bluff on which the headquarters were estab
lished. Hero they dept and usually took
their meals, but sometimes both ascended the
trill and were entertained at tho mess of Gen.
Grant. On tho 2Gth of March a distin
guished party from Washington joined
them, among whom I remember especially
Mr. Geoffroi, the French minister. It was
proposed that an excursion should be mado
to the front of tho Army of the Potomac,
about ten or twelve mBcs away, and Mrs.
Lincoln and Mrs. Grant were of tho com
pany. Then was a military railroad which
took tho illustrious guests a great portion of
tho way, and then the men were mounted,
but Mrs. Grant and Hm. Lincoln went on
in an ambulance, as it was called a sort of
half open carringo with two seats besides
that for tho driver. I was detailed to escort
them, and of course sat on the front seat
facing the ladies, with my back to the horses.
In tho coursa of conversation I mentioned
that all the wives of officers at tho army
front had been ordered to tho rear a surd
sign that cctivo operations were in contem
plation I said not n lidy had been allowed
to remain except Mrs. Griffin, the wife of
Gen. Charles Griffin, who had obtained a
special permission from tho president. At
this Mrs. Lincoln was up in arms. "What
do you mean by that, sir?" she exclaimed.
"Do you mean to say that she saw the presi
dent alone? Do you kow that I never allow
tho president to sue any woman alone?" She
was absolutely jealous of poor, ugly Abraham
Lincoln. I tried to pacify her and to palliate
my remark, but she was fairly boiling over
with rage. "That's a very equivocal smile,
sir," sho exclaimed. "Let mo out of this
carriage at once. I will ask the president if
ho saw tliat woman alone." Mrs. Griffin
was one of tho best known and most elegant
women in Washington, of terward tho Coun
tess Esterhazy, a Carroll and a personal ac
quiintancoof Mrs. Grant, who strove to mol
lify tho excited spouse, but in vain. Mrs.
Lincoln again bado mo stop the driver, and
when I hesitated to obey sho thrust her arms
past mo to the front of the carriage and held
the driver fast. But Mrs. Grant finally pre
vailed on her to wait till tho whole party
alighted, and then Gen. Mcado camo up to
pay his respect to tho wife of the president.
I had intended to offer Mrs. Lincoln my arm
and endeavor to prevent a scene, but Meade,
of course, as my superior officer had the
right to escort her, and I had no chano to
warn him. I saw them go off together, and
remained in fear and trembling for what
might occur in tho presence of tho foreign
minister and other important strangers.
But Gen. Meade was very adroit, and
when they returned Mrs. Lincoln looked at
me and said: "Gen. Meade is a gentleman,
sir. no siys it was not the president who
gave Mrs. Griffin tho permit, but.tho secre
tary of war." Meado was the son of a diplo
matist and had evidently inherited some of
his father's skill.
At night when wo were back in camp Mrs.
Grant talked over tho matter with me and
said tho whole affair was so distressing and
mortifying that xvo must never cither men
tion it to any one; at least I was to bo ab
solutely silent aud sho would disclose it only
to tho general. But tho next Cay I was re
leased from my pledge, for "worse remained
The samo party went in tho morning to
visit the Army of the James on tho north
side of the river, commanded by Gen. Ord.
The arrangements were somewhat similar to
those tho day before. Wo wrt up the river
in a steamer, and then the men again took
horses und Mrs. Lincoln and Mrs. Grant
went in an ambulance. I was detailed as
before to act as escort, but I asked for a
companion in the duty; for after my experi
ence of the previous day I did not wish to be
the only officer in tho carriage. So Gen.
Horace Porter was ordered to join tho party.
Mrs. Ord was with her husband. As she
was tho wifo of tho commander of on army
he was not subject to the order for return,
though before that day was over she wished
herself in Washington or anywhere else away
from the army, I am sure. Sho was
mounted, and as tho ambulance was full she
remained on her horse and rodo for a while
by tho side of the president and ahead of
"trifles light as air."
As soon as Mrs. Lincoln discovered this her
rage was beyond all bounds. "What does
tho woman mean," sho exclaimed, "by rid
ing by the side of tho president and ahead of
me? Docs sho suppose that he wants her by
the side of him?" She was in a frenzy of
excitement, and language and action both
became more extravagant every moment.
Mrs. Grant again endeavored to pacify her,
but then Mrs. Lincoln got angry with Mrs.
Grant, and all that Porter and I could do
was to see that nothing worse than words
occurred. Wc feared she might jump out
of the vehicle and shout to tho cavalcade.
Once she said to Mrs. Grant in her transports:
"I suppose you think you'll get to the Whit3
House yourself, don't you?" Mrs. Grant
was very calm and dignified, and merely re
plied tliat &hc was quite satisfied with her
present position; it was far greater than she
had ever expected to attain. Then Mrs.
Lincoln exclaimed: "Oh! yon had bcttrr
take it if yon can get it. 'Tis very nice."
Then she returned to Mrs. Ord, but Mrs.
Grant defended her friend at tho risk of
arousing greater vehemence.
Onco when there was a halt Maj. Seward,
nephew of tho secretary of state and en
officer of Gen. Ord's staff, rode up, and try
ing to say something jocular, remarked:
"The president's horse is very gallant, Mrs.
Lincoln: he insists on riding by tho side of
Mrs. Ord!" This of course added fuel to tho
flame. "What do you mean by that, sir?"
she cried. Seward discovered tliat ho bod
Bade & huge mistake, and his hono at onco
developed a peculiarity that compelled him to
ride behind to get out of the way of the
Finally the party arrived at its destina
tion, and Mrs. Ord came up to the ambu
lance. Then Mrs. Lincoln positively insulted
her, called her vile names in tho presence of
crowd of officers and asked what sho meant
by following up the president. The poor
woman burst into tears and inquired what
aha had done, but Mrs. Lincoln refused to bo
appeased, and stormed till she was tired.
Mrs. Grant still tried to stand by her friend,
and everybody was shocked and horriCcd.
Bat all things como to an end, and after
awhile we returned to City Point.
That night the president and Mrs. Lincoln
Htartaiaed Gen. and Mrs. Grant and tho
Mawral's staff ut dinner on tho steamer, and
before us all Mrs. Lincoln berated Gen. Ord
to the fnaMaat aadwged that he ahoakl be
removed, ue was unm tor ms puce, she
said, to say nothing.of his wife. Gen. Grant
sat next and defended his officer bravely.
Of course Geo.' Ord wae not removed.
During .all this visit similiar scenes were
occurring. Mrs. Lincoln repeatedly attacked
her husband in the presence of officers be
cause of these two ladies, and I never suffered
greater humiliation and pain on account of
one not a near personal friend than when I
saw the head of the state the man who car
ried all the cares of the nation atsuchocrisis
subjected to this inexpressible public mor
tification. He bore it as Christ might have
done, with an expression of pain and sadness
that cut one to tbe heart, but with supreme
calmness and dignity. He called her "moth
er," with his old time plainness; ho pleaded
with eyes and tones, and endeavored to ex
plain or palliate the offenses of others, till sho
turned on him like a tigress, and then he
walked away, biding that noble, ugly face
that we might not catch the full expression
of its misery.
THE HaBTYB PBSSTDEST'S COUBTEST.
Gen. Sherman was a witness of some of
these episodes and mentioned them in his
memoirs many years ago. Capt. Barnes, of
the navy, was a witness and a sufferer too.
Barnes had accompanied Mrs. Ord on her
unf ortunae ride and refused afterward to say
that the lady was to blame. Mrs. Lincoln
never forgave him. A day or two afterward
he went to speak to tho president on some
official matter when Mrs. Lincoln and sev
eral others were present. The president's
wife said something to him unusually offen
sive that all the company could hear. Lin
coln was silent, but after a moment ho went
up to tho young officer and taking him by
the arm led him into his own cabin, to show
him a map or a paper he said. He made no
remark, Barnes told me, upon what had oc
curred. He could not rebuko his wife, but
he showed his regret and regard for the
efficer with a touch of what seemed to me
the most exqnlsitejbreedlng.
After tho murder of tho president the ec
centricities of Mrs. Lincoln became more ap
parent than ever, and peoplo began to won
der whether her mind had not been affected
by her terrible misfortune. Mr. Seward
told me that she sold tho president's shirts,
with his initials marked on them, before she
left tho White House, and that, learning the
liwm was for sale at a shop in Pennsylvania
avenue, he sent -and bought it privately.
, She lingered at tho executive mansion a long
while after all arrangements should havo
been made for hor departure, keeping tho
new president out of his proper residence.
Afterward sho made appeals to public men
and to, the country for pensions and other
pecuniary aid, though there was no need for
public application. She went abroad doing
strange tilings and carrying tho-honored
name of Abraham Lincoln into strange and
sometimes unfit company, for she was
greatly neglected and felt the neglect.
While I was consul general at London I
learned of her living in an obscure quarter
and went to soo her. Sho was touched by
the attention, and when I asked hor to my
house for it seemed wrong that tho widow
of tho m who had dono so much for us
all should be ignored by any American rep
resentative she wrote mo a note of thanks,
betraying how rare such courtesies had be
come to her then.
The next I heard of tho poor woman was
tho scandal of tho courts in Chicago, when
the fact was made clear that she was insane.
It was a great relief to mo to learn it, and
doubtless the disclosure of tho secret which
her son must havo long suspected though,
like tho Spartan boy, ho cloaked his pain
was to him a sort of terriblo satisfaction. It
vindicated his conduct; it told for him what
ho had concealed; it proved him a worthy
son of that great father who also bore his
fate so heroically. Adam Badcau in New
Horse Trotting lu Swedes.
Mr. Gus Benedicks, ono of tho directors
ofthe General Swedish Trotting association,
who is now in this country looking for infor
mation concerning American methods on tho
turf, gives a graphic account of the "horso
world ' in Sweden. Tho central office of tho
association is at Stockholm. The president is
Count Alfred Pipcn, and tho royal family
take great interest in the races, which usually
are held in winter on tho ice. Tho circular
track of ono English milo is inclosed, and an
admission fee is charged. Tho crowds ore
always largo and enthusiastic, although
there is no public betting as there is in this
country in fact, thero is not a single activo
bookmaker in all Sweden. Professional
trainers and drivers are scarce, and tho
speed of horses is not developed with skill.
It is the custom for each owner to drive him
self. The maximum rate of speed is 2:50 to
the milo, and a horse capable of doing this,
if sound and without fault, is valued at from
2,000 to $3,000.
Tho judges occupy s stand in the center
of the infield, and the horses, only two of
which start at ono time, travel in opposite
directions. One goes to the right and tho
other to tho left, and the competitor which
gets back to tbe starting line first is declared
the winner. Tho spectators in this style of
competition are first interested in the widen
ing of the gap, and after tho half mile post
has been reached they grow excited over tho
steady closing of tho some. This method is a
great improvement in many respects over
the American method, as it keeps tho spec
tators in longer suspense, docs away with all
chance of collisions and prevents the horses
from getting excited and breaking. Then,
too, one driver cannot form anywhere near
a correct idea as to the exact speed of his
competitor, and fa therefore compelled to
make his horse do its best. It is more diffi
cult, however, to follow a race of thii de
scription than one in which tho horses travel
side by sido and in the samo direction. Tho
prizes oro mainly for Swedish bred horses.
The Kngllsu a Skater.
As a nation we ore not great skaters.
Some good performers there are; yet men
who skate taking tho term to mean some
thing more than merely floundering along in
tho most ungraceful attitudes are compara
tively few in number. As tho nowspapers
tell us, crowds of peoplo flock to the nearest
pond long before the ico bears. To tho
masses the existence of an acre or two of ice
means the extension of available play
grounds, and upon the principle of anything
for a change, great numbers resort to every
frozen puddle. And what do they do when
they get there? Sliders are numerous; more
than half tho skaters find it necessary to
brandish a stick as a means of retaining
their balance; a man doing outside edge is
almost sure of a gallery, while anything be
yond this raises the skater to the position of
an expert. Yet skating in England has, in
point of proficiency, made rapid strides
within the last fifty years; and a few but
very few of our best skaters can hold their
own with tho representatives of any nation.
Married a "Burghcr-Maedchon."
Eighty-six years ago, on Oct. 20, 1S00,
Helmut Karl von Moltke was born at Par
chimin Mecklenburg, tho home of Blucher,
the immortal "Marshal Forward." His fa
ther, Baron von Moltke, was on the retirsd
list of the Prussian army anl the owner of
an estate in tho grand dukedom named.
Moltke's mother was a daughter of Herr
Paschem, "councilor of finance" in Ham
burg. It is a fact worthy of notice that
both Bismarck's mother from whom he in
herited his superior talents and Moltke's
were not members of tho nobility, but sim
ple burgher's daughters, whom genius and
worth alono had distinguished. In fact, in
those days and it showed tho caliber of each
of the fathers it required no little moral
courage on a nobleman's part to marry a
"burgher-inaedchen," subject, as she evi
dently was, to perpetual ostracism from bluo
blooded relations. Detroit Free Press.
Ventilation or Tubllc Buildings.
I think that tbe 'ventilation of all public
buildings should bo mado compulsory, end
the enforcement placed in tho hands of a
competent commissioner, for only then and
not sooner will it be possible to secure public
buildings constructed on a sanitary basis.
Architects can do much in assisting toward
this end, but many buildings intended for
public use ore intrusted to persons who have
no conception of proper ventilation. Ab
sence of fresh air and sunlight is frequently
a camo of disease, and many peoplo who
would bo shocked at personal uncleanliness
seem to havo no objections to inhaling the
vilest atmosphere. When wo have once
secured public buildings that will be exam
ples in this particular, it would be but a step
to secure tho proper ventilation of factories,
workshops, etc., where fresh air is of even
greater importance than in schools, court
houses and other public buildings. Cor.

"O, look at that big crazy quilt, mamma,"
cried a little miss of perhaps 12 years, as she
stopped for a moment before a gorgeously
decorated store window on State street re

those are handkerchiefs and ribbons," said
her mother, quietly laughing at the child's
"One could not better illustrato the curi
ous effects, good or bad, produced by a win
dow trimmer upon the senses of the passer-by
than to give those remarks," said Mr. J. A.
Barber to a reporter as he surveyed a
completed window of linen specialties. "It
is a curious fact," he continued, "but very
true, nevertheless, that so great a necessity
in the retail business as an artistic window
display is frequently given over to some clerk
who has not the least idea of harmony in
colors or appropriateness in the selection of
goods put in a window for tbe general pub
lic's gaze. There are certainly some very
finely arranged windows to been seen in Chi
cago overy week, but now and then you will
meet with one such that the Httle girl's re
mark to her mother is not an exaggerated
idea of the effect, as a whole. You may ex
amine them closely and find a good general
arrangement of the articles meant to be
shown, but from a distance of fifteen feet
you could not tell to save you what kind of
goods were on sale.
"This fault is more commonly seen in the
smaller stores than among the larger firms,
for during tho last four or five years it has
boon seen by tbe leading houses that to have
a good showy windows requires tbe entire
timo of one man. Another thing you must
boar in mind is that a window trimmer is
not made in a week or a month. I myself
worked for ten years at odd times as an as
sistant in this class of work before I did a
single job alone or dared consider myself
capable of doing all kinds of work such as a
dry goods house continually requires. Dur
ing the last six years it has been my exclu
"What are the principal essentials of a
good trimmer?" asked the reporter.
"A scientific knowledge of the effect of
combined colors hi the greatest. No man
can make an attractive and showy window
that does not thoroughly understand that art,
and it is an art as much as with a dress
maker. Then a man must havo a good
mechanical eye to gauge tbe effect to be pro
duced from a distance, as well as a close in
spection of his work. Fixtures are, of course,
a necessity, and there have been many im
provements in their portability tbe last few
years which greatly assist a window trim,
mer, but a man who understands hit
business thoroughly con trim a window
neatly and with good effect by the most
simple resting pieces for anything he has to
show. There are several firms in this city
who do not use anything but boxes and im
provised frames, and yet carry out the idea
intended with good effect. Draping is an
other point to be studied by a trimmer, and
he has to understand the grouping of bodies
quite as much as the blending of colors."
During a tour of a large number of retail
stores tho inquirer conversed with the differ
ent gentlemen employed for this exacting
work and their replies to inquiries mado are
here given individually. Said Mr. E. Cau
bert: "A nine years' experience has taught
mo tliat tho best effect can be produced in
window trimming by a judicious selection of
quantity. Overcrowding a window makes
it look too heavy and the eye will not Ite at
tracted to any one article which might
please the viower should he see it more by
itself; not that there should bo wide bare
spaces on which there is but a background,
but individuality is what should be aimed at.
This is more especially so in men's furnish
ing goods. A man will often seo a tie well
displayed of the same design, but in differ
ent colors and shade, and make a purchase
where a double quantity in the window
would hardly attract bis attention. Such
articles as underwear and shirts ore most
easily arranged. The smaller the articles
tho more difficult of arrangement, but also
the more artistic when finished.
"We do not use mirrors for a background
as somo houses do. They are used mainly
for tho purpose of making a small window
look larger than it really ia. In good sized
windows I do not consider them necessary.
A well arranged window should bo ventilated
so as to keep out all warm or moist air which
causes frost to gather so as to completely
shut out tho view in cold weather. A win
dow should be nearly the temperature of the
outside air during tbe winter months. Our
windows are usually changed completely
once a week, and sometimes oftener, as we
wish to display our novelties in the windows
first before putting them in the show cases
Mr. Charles Liebenstein said: "Our best
salesmen arc our show windows. There is
not a man or woman in our employ who sells
as many goods for us as our window dis
plays. It may sound odd to say that nation
ality has a deal to do with the taste in win
dow trimming, but such is a fact. The
English, Irish and Scoth are nations of shop
keepers, and their window displays at home
are well known the world over. We find
that men of those nationalities are our best
decorators, which seems second nature to
them. They are taught to do this work
when they begin to sell goods, and it is an
excellent idea that should be more universal
in this country. They excel the French in
display, except it be in silks and velvets.
Tho refinement of the French is excellently
shown in tho artistic drapings of their dress

Growth of the Ueorlco Plant.
Tbe department of state has. received and
published a scries of consuur reports on ' 'The
Licorice Plant and Its Cultivation in Vari
ous Countries." Tho plant is cultivated for
its roots in England, grows wild in Spain,
and is also gathered in Turkey, Gresce,
Italy, Sicily and elsewhere. In England it
flourishes best in sandy, loamy soil, being
planted deep enough to insure good long
roots. The plant matures in three and a half
years. When it is once well rooted it is al
most impossible to eradicate it, though
great care is exercised in harvesting not to
harm the plant. Chicago Tribune.
Novel Advertising of a nook.
The latest thing in book advertising bos
been devised by a French publishing firm.
A large number of men are mado to walk in
single file along the most frequented streets,
apparently intent upon reading an open
book, which they holdout before them with
both hands, so that the back of the book can
bo seen. The public naturally wishes to
know tho title of this work of such absorbing
interest, and finds on looking that it is a
newly published novel. It is hardly neces
sary to add that several of the hired men
could not read a line of it to save their lives.

with as much pride as though he could boast
of an unbroken descent from Orpheus him

more strange, to the unflagging interest of

reception during the past few months

tiee among society people, says a writer
in The lirooUiii Ewjle. Before, the

prettiest and most homelike in appear
ance of any in the city. Guests on en
tering pas through an imposing vesti
bule, with massive doors and tesselated
floor of blaek and white marble, aud
enter a hall, from the center of which
a stairway, broad and easy of ascent,
winds upward. On its massive newel
post is a cluster of lamps. Antique
sideboards of mahogany that have life
long associations for their owner, high
ly polished stands for hats and cloaks,
a quaint old Dutch clock in one cor
ner, in tin center wall a painting of St.
Cecelia, and a fleecy black and white
rug at the foot of the stairs- compose
the first glimpse into this beautiful
home. On the left of the hall are the
parlors, a suite of three lovely rooms.
The front of the three is done in white
and gold, and in this hangs a lifesize
portrait of the lady herself. ltefore
the tall mirror, between the front win
dows, is a piece of sculpture, The In
dian Princess," by Crawford, and this
room also contains a rare collection of
stuflcd birds found in South America.
The central room, called the tea-room,
is u narrow parallelogram in shape,
carpeted in rich, .dark colors, and shut
oil' from the other rooms of the suite by
costly screens. The hangings are of
crimson silk crape, draped high in un
conventional style, running across
the mantel-piece In festoons, where
they are looped through a gilt ring.
The central object of this room is the
great open fireplace, with its bras lix
tures, its broad hearth of shining black
tiles, its quaint tea-kettles ou either
side, and its dainty lambrequins of
thread lace. Every available inch of
wall space is covered with pictures.
On either side of the door leading into
the hall stands antique sideboards of
rich dark mahogany, covered with
specimens of antique glass, aud haud
some rugs complete the appointments
of this room.
Back of this the library, which opens
on a court. A statue of the Genius
of Mirth" stands on a pedestal behind
a writing-table. On cither side of the
window overlooking the court are tall
chiffoniers, covered with crimson silk
plush, ou which are displayed some
rare plaques, and tltere is a cabinet full

Mr. Pariieirs power, says a London
journal, is almost wholly due to his
force of restraint. He has absolute
control over his temper and never
let himself go." The leader of a
race famed for jovial wit, passionate
oratory, reckless adandou, ami a
more than regal generosity, he never
made: a joke in his life, is a cold, un
impassioned calculator, who holds
himself in reserve even with his in
timates, and whose oratory has never
been relieved by a single bunt of pas
sionate fervor. He is the mystery
man of modern politics.

Scott in the Mexican War.
His victories have, never received the
credit justly due them on account of
the apparent ease with which they were
gained. The student of military his
tory will rarely meet with accounts of
battles in any age where actual opera
tions coincide so exactly with the or
ders isMicd upon the ere of conflict as
iu the official report of the wonderful
ly energetic ami successful campaign
in which General Scott with a handful
of men renewed the memory of the con
quest of Cortes, in his triumphal march
from Vera Cruz to the capital. The
plan of the battle of Ocrro Gordo was
so fully earned out iu action that the
official report is hardly more than the
general orders translated from the
future tense to the past. The story of
Chupultcpee has the same element
of the marvelous in it. The general
commands apparent impossibilities iu
the closest detail ou one day, and the
next day reports thrt they have been
accomplished. These successes were
not cheaply attained. The Mexicans,
though deficient in science and in mili
tary intelligence, fought with bravery
and sometimes with desperation. - The
enormous percentage of loss in his
army proves that Scott was engaged in
no light work. Life of Lincoln, in Cen

Among the stories which are amus

of the frugality of the famous Gcrmau

placed :i occurring during the siege of
