(!P1-- Th heavy responsibilities of directing nation thru the trying days of th Civil war did not prevent Presiden Lincoln from taking an occnsiona hour off to listen to the plea of . saddened mother or a lonely boy.

At the age of 14, Danny, then a Irummer boy for the First Kansas regiment, followed a detachment of soldiers from Fort Leavenworth vhcre his father, Gen. D. P Winget was commandant, to Washington because he wished to get to the firing me. - ° When he reached the capital, he vas a homesick, broke and hungry oy. but still intent on joining the i-my. He went to see Secretary of War Stanton, whom he described s "big, burly and cross as a bear," Considered Too Small. Stanton thot him too small for a soldier and opined that "we'd better shoot you for leaving your post aa a drummer boy for the First Kansas regiment." It was a frightened lad who a few hours later mustered up sufficient ·courage to go to the white house He was met at the door by an old Negro servant who hesitated about admitting him until a deep voice from an inner room sounded "Jet him hi." He entered and saw Lincoln "bit- as a telegraph pole." Seated at the end of a table was a small woman, ner head bowed down, soba sliakino- her as she pleaded for the life of her 17 year old son who was sir tenced to death for falling aslee while on sentry duty. "I took the seat Mr. Lincoln in dicated, nervously fingering m cap," Winget related. "After a fe; silent turns past his desk and th woman, he paused, laid a large nan on her shaking shoulder and said: Would Uestoro Sou. " 'Little mother, your boy will b estored to you.' "I can still see the Joy that radl ited from that harassed mother a she brokenly thanked Mr. Lincol or saving her son. I con still se he misty look in the saddened eye I tho president." Ie told the president his story Th' president remained silent until h( var. fimsned then wrote a note an old tho young drummer boy to take it to Stanton. Y "I didn't like Stanton so'I snealten a look at the note," continued Win- ·,et. He still has it in his possession =u'f»f V* °L a "S ular writing on r It said" house, stationery "Hadn't we better siank thi= drummer boy, Danny Winget an. send him back to Leavenwnrth? A. LINCOLN."' Spanking War, Expected. That was too much " WinJet went on. "I started to cry. So°hf took me by the hand and we wen out. I felt a lot safer, but I w?s still scared, figuring I wns due to get tint tanning. T-i'iPt' 1 I Clkin ' t He took me to -hfi Efcbett house, sent for Stanton and TM3 something to him. I got three days rations, clean. clothes, trans- nofti.t'on home and two weeks' furlough."
