(Copyright, by Ui* Author, j
A lanky young giant, homely, poor
and ill-clad, fell in love with a little,
red-haired village beauty, Anne Rut-
ledge. She lived in a frontier town
in what is now the middle west and
was daughter of the local tavern
Though only 17, she was engaged to
a New Yorker who had spent a few
weeks at the tavern. Then young
Abraham Lincoln came to town and
proceeded to lose his heart to her. He
was ugly, uncouth and gaunt in ap-
pearance and had to work hard for a
bare living. The gentleness and bril-
liancy that were masked behind his
homely exterior were not of the sort
to appeal at once to Miss Rutledge.
But this did not prevent Lincoln from
courting her. It was the first and
greatest love of all his life.
At length persistent wooing had its
effect. The New Yorker had stopped
writing to Anne. She realized he had
deserted her. In lier .inhappiness she
turned to Lincoln for comfort. As ten-
derly as a woman the young giant
soothed her sorrow and sought to
console her for her lost lover. In
time she consented to be his wife.
But mourning for the faithless New
Yorker had undermined her health.
While arrangements for the wedding
were going on she sickened and died.
Her death was the bitterest sorrow
Lincoln evor knew. His friends feared
he was goin<? insane. His character
took on a meiancholy that marked his
... „ face and manner
,H,S ^,r,t as long as he

funeral he burst into tears, sobbing:
"I can never be reconciled to have
the snow and rain beat upon her
Many yea^s later he told a friend in
confidence: "My heart lies in that
girl's grave!" So entirely did grief
master him th.it when, long afterward,
he became engaged to a Kentucky
girl, Mary Owen, he is said to have
asked her to release him from the
match because he could not love her
her as he should, his mind still cling-
ing to the memory of Anne Rutledge.
It was in 1840 that another Ken-
tucky girl, Mary Todd, came to Spring-
field, 111., where Lincoln was practic-
ing law. He became engaged to her,
though from the first he showed per-
haps less loverlike ardor than the
occasion called for. The wedding day
arrived and the guests assembled. But
Lincoln did not appear. There was an
awkward pause. Then the wedding
party, wondering, broke up. The
bridegroom's nerve had apparently
failed him at the last moment. He and
Miss Todd were reconciled by friends
and in 1842 the engagement was
patched up. One incident that may or
may not have had something to do with
bringing them together again was the
fact that Miss Todd wrote anonymous-
ly a set of satiric verses which of-
fended James Shields, a political en-
emy of Lincoln's. Shields demanded
to know the author's name. Lincoln
chivaJrously came forward and took
upon himself the responsibility for the
entire affair. Shields challenged him
to a duel. Lincoln accepted the chal-
lenge and chose cavalry sabers as the
weapons. Wise men in the commu-
nity reconciled the opponents and no
duel was fought.
Two months later Lincoln and Mary
Todd were married. One biographer
says that Lincoln went through his
share In the wedding ceremony as
pale and trembling as if being driven
to slaughter." The young couple
started married life on the upper floor
of an inn. where board and lodging
cost them *4 a week. Even at that,
they were often hard pressed for
ready money, practicing every econ-
omy. There can be little doubt that
Mrs. Lincoln had a lively, peppery
temper and that ber husband suffered
from its effects. It is said that their
pne servant, in early days, could not
endure the wife's sharp tongue and
was only induced to remain in the
house because Lincoln secretly paid
ber double wages. A man who had
been scolded so
A Stormy violently by Mrs.
Home Life. , incoln (hat
rushed to her husband for satisfaction
was sadly asked by Lincoln:
"Can't you endure for a few mo-
ments what I have had as my portion
for 15 years?"
The latent brain trouble which later
partially wrecked Mrs. Lincoln's mind
was possibly the real cause of her fits
of rage. They had one good effect:
Lincoln's interest was turned to pub-
lic matters and he threw himself more
fully into politics than he might have
done had he had a calmer home life.
Yet whenever he was away from
home he kept his wife closely in-
formed of every step he took. This
fact not only tends to show his devo-
tion to her, but also the keen inter-
est she felt in his progress. When he
received news of his election to the
presidency his first words were:
"There is a little woman at our
house who is probably more interest-
ed in this dispatch than I am. I'll take
it up and let her see it."
Lincoln was seated at his wife's
side in Ford's theater, Washington,
in 1865, when Wilkes Booth assasinat-
ed him. The shock and grief com-
bined to bring on a malady from
which the unhappy woman never

ADAM WAS REAL GENTLEMAN
That Fact Is Thoroughly Demonstrated
by the Manner In Which He
Was Adam a sneak or a gentleman?
Mr. George A. Crawford thinks a gen-
tleman, and has written a very Jolly
pamphlet to prove it. Adam, It ap-
pears, has been misquoted. He is made
to say: "The woma thou gavest me
tempted me. and I dM eat"—a remark
unworthy the foremont man of time.
What Adam did say was: "The woman
thou gavest to be with me. she gave
me of the tree, and I did eat" Mr.
Crawford prints the words 'to be with
me" in large and resonant capitals,
feeling ihat they reflect credit upon
You see what the father of the race

tween Paradise without Eve and Eve

been a sneak, he would ua>® *r*p*d
that he never meant to marry Eve, but
was imposed upon, owing to Inexpe-

acquaintance among girls had been
lather limited. The first one he saw
caught him. Thus, he might have
begged the Judge to set him free, cit-
ing as precedents the affair of the
young gentleman who took part in cha-
rades. Said this delightful youth: "I
tell you what. Miss Bunthorne. we'll
act 'Paradise Lost.' I'll propose; you
reject me; they'll never guess it" Any
judge unable to appreciate the ap-
poslteness of the citation and its ar-
gumentative potency might as well re-

NOT FAMILIAR WITH MONEY
Many Poor Children In the Public
Schools Do Not Know Pieces of
Unfamlliarity with money gives
children a queer idea of the value of
certain coins. A 50-cent piece drop-
pled from the pocket of a visitor to a
New York school and was returned
by a small girl with the remark:
"Here, sir, is your $10."
The man laughed in spite cf him-
self. but the teacher looked sad.
"Poor little things," she said. "How
can you expect them to know any
better? They never see a piece of
money bigger than a quarter. They
are as sharp as a coin collector on
cents, nickels, dimes and quarters,
and can almost tell the date across
the room, but a piece of money bigger
than that is such a rarity in their
homes that they are apt to call any-
thing from one to a hundred dollars."
"When I first took charge of this
class there wasn't a child In the room
who could name the denomination of
a coin above a quarter. They had
heard of big money, but had never
seen it. They have had several les-
sons in identifying Uncle Sam's
money, but that particular girl hap-
pened to be absent, so it is not
strange that she should take your
half dollar for $10."
CASE BEFORE U. S.
DEqiSION EXPECTED SOON-
GIVEN PROCEDURE OVER
Washington, April 4.—The case in-
volving the removal of the capital
from Guthrio to Oklahoma City came
up before tho supreme court and is
being arguod today. Tho state is
represented by Attorney General
Charles West, Senator Joe Bailey of
Texas, W. A. Ledbetter and H. L.
Stewart. Guthrie is represented by
attorneys of that city.
The Guthrie attorneys take the
po&ition that the state violated the
conditions prescribed in the enabling
act under which Oklahoma and In-
dian Territory were admitted to state-
hood. They argue that the act is
binding and that Guthrie Is tho capi-
tal until 1913.
Counsel for the state takes the po-
sition that if congress had tho pow-
er to locate the capital of a newly
admitted state for a certain num-
ber of days or yeans that it can lo-
cate it permanently. The old ques-
tion of states rights is being argued.
Inasmuch as the court advanced
the date of hearing of the case, giv-
ing it precedence over cases two
years old, it is believed the court's
findings will be handed down in a

In the course of the excavations
which are still being made at Pompeii
the body of a petrified woman has
been discovered. On the body were
Jev. Is of great value, including brace-
lets, necklaces, and chatelaines, and
it is assumed from this that their
wearer belonged to the patrician
class. Especially remarkable among
the jewels are two clasps, each coin-
posed of twenty-one pearls in a clus-
ter. These clasps have both an artis-
tistic and an archaeological value, for
nothing comparable with them has
been found before among the ruins of
Pompeii. Pompeii, on the Neapolitan
Riviera, was founded abput 600 B. C.,
and down to the time of its destruc-
tion, A. D. '79, it was a sort of Rome-
super-B'^'re, frequented by the aris-
tocracy, if not by Caligula and Nero,
in whose honor It erected triumphal
arches. Fed from the capital with ev-
ery luxury and distinction, it included
temples In which the inhabitants
were encouraged to make costly sac-
rifices. The city of Pom: eli was near-
ly ruined by earthquake in A. D. '63,
but it had returned to its former gsr
ety and licentiousness when in '79
It was overwhelmed by the ashes of
