LINCOLN'S PICTURE. FORMERLY DISPLAYED AT REPUBLICAN MEETINGS IN LOGA.NSPORT. •»'*» Lut ItlKlit the Principal Decoration at tbe Lincoln I»»y Baiq.net at Chlcago-A Story of ihe-Flctnre Told In a Chicago Dally—Col. T. H. l»rln»)iui»t Glvi H flit Recollecilon or How Hie I'ulntins W«» Bronchi Here And Jl» UlxJory While InTUli* Ciiy. A Journal representative last evening called on Col. T. 'H. Bringhurtt, who was for 25 years editor and pro priotor of ibis paper, to learn tbe /ads concerning tbe famous Lincoln painting which WES lor years in the possession of Logansport people. The Chicago Tribune of jesterday contained u fac simile picture of the painting wh.lch was used last night as the principal decoration at the Lincoln bacq'iet of the MarquottJ Club at the Grand Pacific hotel, Chicago, The irlbuno says: The painting wae furnished through the kindness of tbe deceased owner's daughter. Miss Maibelle Justice. The picture was painted In 1800 by an artist named Chambers, who was an iatimite friend of the martyred president, and 18 in size six feet by ten. It IB an excellent likeness of Lincoln when a young man, and represents him In the act of splitting ralla upon his farm in Illinois. Mr. Juatios first saw the pic. ture in the war, when It wai carried by the Indiana regiment with which ho had enlisted. It was booted by all southerners and wae the rally place of many desperate encounters. It was twice captured and recaptured, receiving a bullet through Lincoln's forehead and numerous gabhes from knives. After being captured a third time by the southerners Mr. Justice lost track of it for some time but finally found it la an old ware house in Georgia amoog the effects of a maa who had been killed in battle, He had it framed and iv has been in his family over twenty- six years," Concerning the painting and the above statement Col. Bringhuret last evening said: "My recollections of the Lincoln picture begin In 1860. It was brought to tho Republican congressional convention held that year at Plymouth, Ind. At the close of the convention the painting was purchased from the artist for a small sum of money. The purchase was made h y William Wilson of Lo- gaciport, who died several years ago, and. whose widow resides on North street, Mr. Wilson and three or four other residents of Logansport contributed tho money for the purchase. It was brought 10 Logansport by tbe delegation and created great enthusiasm when it was produced at many of the meetings and conventions of that day, The picture formed an Import- ont part in the campaigns of several yonrs after. Ic was kept at different places without much care, being for a time at tho old Journal office on Broadway aad subsequently in the rooms of the Youag Men's Christian Association in a building at tho site where Hann&'s store now stands. "At the latter place after a while it was kept with soma old scanery at that time operated by tbe Y. M. C. A. "My impressions is that the picture never left Logansport until taken away by the representatives of Mr. James Jus 1 ice after ho died. It was at his house a long while. I think the story of the picture being in one of the regiments and In battle is fiction. The picture was DOT. carefully kept and became dilapidated. The picture was really owned by William Wilson, whose son, Lincoln Wilson, is connected with the express company here, as he furnished the principal part of the money wlih which it was bought. I think that on several oc. oasions efforts were made by soldiers to get the picture in the G. A. K. hall but they wore unsuccessful. "There wae no opposition made by Mr. Justice to any of these movements. They simply failed because not especially urged. I am confident that Mr. Justice thought he had no claim to the picture," SICBOLSOX BILL ENDORSED By U»o Oood Ttnplara at Ttoelr Becent District Meeting ia Thl* City. The Fifth District of I. O G T. at a meeting held In this city last week adopted the following- resolutions: Believing asjwejlo that it is a scientific principle fully established that alcohol in all its forms i' not only wholly unnecessary to the human system in a state oJ health but Is Injurious and does positive harm, to those who imbibe H, believing this to ba a fact, the sa'o^D, vfhoae ooly business is to furnish alcoholic liquors as a bavor- a£6 to the people, has not one good thing ID its favor but 1= an unmitigated evil. Therefore, Resolved, by the FU.h District Lodge of Good Templars in convention assembled that we *ill use all honorable and -legal means, not only to induce individuals to abstain from drinking-, but also to do away with and remove tbo temptation of our weak and erring brothers by curtailing, checking, crippling, and finally eradicating root and branch the saloon from our midst. A? a means to this end we endorse the so called "Nicholion Bill" now pending in Legislature and would urge our legislators to vote for the same. Believing that if tho people were fully informed of the injurious effects of alcohol upon the human system, they would not drink it, we would urge our legislator! to pass a law to make it compuliory upon our public Bchools to teach tbe effects of alcohol upon the human system. We are opposed to the bill recently Introduced into the State Legislature making It legal to sell liquors to boys over 18 years of age instead of 21, and would call upon our senators and representatives to vote against the same.

We find that on .Tanuar}' 22, 1S4S, after having 1 beard a lecture of AVhewell's, he went on to the club, and took tip Thackeray's '•Vanity Fair" to read. He became so deeply absorbed in the book that ho sat on, oblivious of the fact that evary one else had disappeared one by one. He vras also apparently deaf to cong-hs and hints of attendants, etc., but »till sat there, reading 1 and laughing- to himself. At last in desperation the men came for\vard and began to take away the lamps. Then, having looked at his watch and found it considerably past 2 a m.. he rushed wildly out of the club, and. like a scientific Cinderella, left hia umbrella and greatcoat'behind.—Life of Kiehard Owen, by his Grandson, THE KAISER SHOWED HIM William Tlaj-i the Pare of • SiUIor wlt»(| . a Muc of lieer. Having gradually filled many roles^ ErnperorWilliam has now added ariothcT- to his repertory. Alluding to it as a "good-natured joka at Kiel," the London Daily Kews Berlin!^ correspondent tells the story thus: As Emperor William was steppingi- on board his yacht the other day hoj... was met by a sailor named Joerg, who, had in his hand a mug of beer which hq'.... was carrying into the officers' cabin. The emperor was very much amused^, at the discomfiture of the poor fellow, % who did not know at first what to do; _ and who finally saluted the emperor,], holding the beer mug convulsively) against the scam of his breeches. Th<s-. emperor stepped up to the sailor and^ addressed him most amiably: "Soo, Jocrg, you ha-c done that very.- stupidly, and I will show 3-011 how ouej should behave iu such a situation. Go, up acd imagine that you are (.he em-; pcror, and I shall be the sailor, Joerjy." The poor fellow did not dare rcinon-, strate. He had to coiue on board by Ihoj.- imperial gangway, and Emperor Wjl-, liarn met him below in his new role of a. sailor, with a beer mug. When he saw Jocrg, the emperor af-- fcctcd some embarrassment, but ho. then set the glass to his lips, emptied" it completely, put it down on the ship's, ledge, and then made his salute. "Do you sec, Jocrg-'.' That is the way- it must be done. Kon-remember. And DOW go below and tell them to give you, another glass of beer, acd one for you, too. If they question yon, just tell them that I said so and that they, should not be an;rvy. for the beer was beautifully fresh and tasted very good."- A Centenarian l)onk»y. Herbivorous animals are generally thought to outlive carnivorous ones, and of the former class those dedicated to labor appear to furnish the largest, number of instances of longevity. A few years ago a donkey died at Cro- naarty which was known to be at least 100 rears old. It could be traced back to the year 1779, when, at an unknown ag-e, .it came into the hands of the then Ross of Cromarty, and it lived in the same family, "hale and hearty,"' until a kick from a horse ended its career. JCo horse is known to have attained to anything 1 like such an age as this, bot a few have lived from ag-es varying- from forty to fifty years. LONG SKATES FOR SPEED, T7»e r3Ulof,np!i.v ami Ur£lonfo« of Clio Fii*. voritn Winter Sport. Considerable time and ingenuity have-, been expended recently in the efforts . to produce a form of skate v.-hich will „ combine lightness and convenience ot; arrangement with great speed. The . scientific principle involved hi this- work is far more complex thsin is ffon- . orally supposed, and, as outlined by the , Scientific American, makes a very Interesting- study. Speed in skating 1 it>. ; _ of course, attained by the proper application of every particle of motive po'.v,. Cr. When the skater strikes out with..his foot be does not, however, as is. 4 generally supposed, obtain momcntunjj from the broad side pressure of the.; skate on the ice. The momentum It. gained by a gradual and tapering pres*. sure which commences at the head of, the skate, since it is here that the-, freshest and strongest force is applied. It will be seen that the momentum is,, increased, therefore, by the pressure., exerted steadily and firmly from tho heel of tho skate to tho trcmo toe. Tho proper way to attain . great speed is to strike cut each foot 01... close to the other as possible, to con«.. tinue the stroke up to tho toe, ancV, when once the 'extreme motive powe^ Is passed to get tho other foot in position as quickly as possible, The primd- factors in producing 1 speed, it will ho seen, are the full, pressure on tho lc».. and the rapid movement of the legs.'.. Working upon this theory, a long-,', heavy skate has been manufactured; _ •with a blade which extends several,; inches bevond the foothold. arrel.
