Va. By this lime, however, the westward migration had begun In earnest, and Abraham sold his farm In Virginia, packed up his whole family and struck out into 1 what was then the wilderness of Kentucky. Abraham was apparently ambitious, for he entered several largf land tracts totaling nearly 1503 acres. The cotiillry was wild. then, and settlers lived at fortified "stations," poing out lo cultivate ih'ir new fields. ,.,_, r Thai' was what Abraham .was (loiiiK .^wh eiiija. >' s Add en' shot : ' fi;gni nn IiidiTiii'ambush dropped him' in t l 'v furrow. ' Of the three sons no were at his .side in the clearing, and who' barely escaped a like fate, one was Thomas, later to be the father of ^Abraham Lincoln. The Birth of Youn^ Abe With the death of the breadwinner, the family gradually gave up land tracts slaked out by Abraham. .Thomas, the son,' learned the trade of carpenter and cabinet-maker, and worked at such jobs as turned up. Evidently he did fairly well, however, lor he was able to buy a farm in Hardin County, Kentucky, and in 1806 married Nancy Hanks, like himself a descendant of earl} 1 American immigrants.

Lincoln "On His Own" Then they look to the trail again, this time to the Sangamon country in central Illinois. Ten miles west of Decatur. they built another home. Within another year. Lincoln, noiv n strapping young man "on his own." began to carve oul his own career in Salem as a storekeeper, man-of- nll-work, and law student. From here Lincoln made his trip down-river to. New Orleans, from here hp went as a captain in Ihe Black Hawk war as far northward as Wisconsin.

He won the seat, and from 1847 to 1849 they lived in -Washington. Ncminalcd for Presidency Then he returned to Springfield, where he was marketing for Ihe family groceries late one afternoon in 1860 when news came that the Republican convention meeting In The Wigwam In Chicago had nominated him for the presidency ol the United Slates. The following spring the long trail turned back eastward again to Washington, to end four years . later with n pistol shot in a theater.

Lie down and think things over. You've got plenty of time." * * * J ERRY lay down, heavily. To ease his throbbing head he put his right arm beneath it. "It you know how I got here," he mul- lered impatiently at his unseen companion, "then tell me and have like a candle,'I'd walked Into a dark side street, like a fool, to help a woman," "Ah, my unseen friend, my fellow countryman, how nnlvel" "If that's a French word," Jerry complained, "don't use it.
