EELIC3 OF A TRAGEDY. Carefully Preserved ill the "War Dspartment Archives. "How iTumy people do yon suppose," asked Mr. ,Sa.\to:i, a clerk i:i the office of the jv.<i£TP advocate general of the army, the ether day, "have eves' seen the weapon with which \VilkcsI5ooth killed President Lincoln?" Mr. Saxton ivas with a party of friends, und his question rather aroused interest. Xobody could g-ucss, of course. 5t had been generally supposed that every ivlie of the Lincoln assassiaa- ftion had lonjf ago been seen or written about, by everybody who had interest in sin.-h things, but when somebody in Mr. Saxtou's company suggested tthat idea. he Onlj" smiled and said: •"Then everybody has been greatly fooled. I suppose the dime museums are filled with such things, ;i nil we all Co«PA5S USEp 1NTHE SWAMP •know that the Army Medical museum, •which is now in Ford's old theater, has anany interesting relics of those tragic days, which every visitor to Washington can see if he chooses. But the real irn- jptemcrits of the assassination—the genuine exhibits of the trial before the military commission which hanged Booth's i elloxv conspirators, are up in the judge advocate general's office, as part of the record of the trial, and" (here Mr. Saxton bowed modestly) "they are in my charge." Mr. Saxton, is a grayhaired man. His friends try to dub him "Major," but he wont have it. for he says: "I •was never bigger than first sergeant, and I am proud of that title." Sergt. Saxton has charge of all five of the ' rooms in the big war department "building, which contain the court martial records. It is a bureau of war departments rarely visited because it is not Jcnown to contain anything especially interesting. Everything connected with the assassination of President Lincoln •was long ago supposed to have been distributed among the various museums and historical societies, or to have massed into private hands. Not so, every implement, every exhibit, every physical object that figured En the dreadful deed forms a part of the military record of the trial, and as such F.s carefully guarded in the office of the 3udge advocate general. But few people- ever see these. Not many know they are in existence. When Mr. Saxton asked how many in the opinion of his young friends present had ever looked roithem, his answer, "About three or Scour people a year—friends of the secretary of war, or judge advocate general," fras indeed a surprise. The exhibits in the great trial are most carefully guarded. Nobody can ever see them without permission of the secre- tary, or the judge advocate general, and nobody can take copies of any of fthe written matter without, express permission of the secretary himself. It'is a gruesome exhibit that Mr. Saxion has to display, when anybody comes to him with the proper authority. The room that he occupies is big and Abroad, with ceilings fifteen feet high. All •the fowr walls are covered with a solid '.framework of pigeon holes and drawers, numbered in a way that nobody could understand. To the left of Mr. Saxton's desk is a range of three-deep drapers. In these drawers, packed in close, is the record of the trial of the Lincoln assassins. There were no typewriters in those days; the whole record is written in a big, bold hand, on departmental paper, and the whole -is kept carefully locked up. The physical exhibits of the trial are kept in the . vault. When \Saxton brings out these' dreadfulMhings, he does it with an aLr" ; that indicates Ms personal responsibility. His voice is hushed; he directs his typewriters to cease work, he sends/his lady, stenographer out of tho room, and with the most -delicate touch lifts the precious relics, shows" them; and' it is only with <3vident reluctance that he Callows even a favored'visitor,to Honch them. .The first thing" .of. importance that he 5ias to'show, is the.st'age plan of Ford's •theater—the same that .was drawn by *he:engTneeringdep'artiheBtof the army ior use on the^ trial. ' It is ragged and tthumbstained. Four colors indicate the (position's of the-various actors in the .-great'tragedy. -Every position occupied "by Booth-with his line -of :•' flight, is marked in red, WherVMr.-Lincoln sat fin his box, and'the'position of : the people with him—Mrs. Lincoln, Maj. Kath- Jbone and Miss Harris, is marked in blue. vrricere Laura Keene and her chief sup- jpaiA, Harry Hawk, stood in tho second aetiof •'•'Our American Cousin," right in- the (Center of tho, stage, is marked in purple. ^.:id u-horp Booth fell upon the stage on his leap from the box and broke his leg, is indicated in green. This diagram is interesting, because it was the official diagram before tha court. The certificates as to its genuineness are signed in the most careless way by a young lieutenant of engineers w]io probably had no idea of what a great historic document this was likely to bcccmc. When Mr. Saxton h;i.d carefully rolled this up and packed it away in its tin case, he broxight forth from the vault a small box, about two feet long. Across tho top of the box lay what seemed to be a club—a piece of scantling about three inches wide by two inches thick. It was finger-worn, and full of bruises. Over one of its surfaces were huge blotches of blood stains. Mr. Saxton with almost nn air of saevodncss, gently lifted this billet of wood and laid it aside, until he could get at the box itself. Saxton is a lecturer as well as a custodian, and he said: ''I put that stick away then because I want to get at the contents of the box first, and put them all out before you. lie laid the club down, and fished out an old fashioned Derringer pistol of exquisite make. Very impressively he laid that down; then out of the box came a hideous dirk and two little boxes of wood, one of them with a glass face in it, like a crystal of a watch; then a pocltetbook, such as men carried thirty years ago in their breast pockets—intended for money and memoranda. In one compartment was the place for tho old carte de visite, which was the pride of the early photographer. When Mr. Saxton brought out the little Derringer he said impressively: 'This is the weapon with which Mr. Lincoln was killed." Mr. Saxton allows no one to take that in his hand. It is an expensive gunpowder toy—just as they used, or had always ready to use, a quarter of a century ago. It is an expensive weapon, as those things were in those days. The short barrel is sharply rifled and studded with silver. The hammer action is two "clicks," pulled with the thumb. The hammer goes down on a percussion cap. The stock is of rosewood, beautifully carved, and the whole is artistically mounted and decorated in silver. That old type of Derringer was a wicked shooter at short range. Booth put it at President Lincoln's head, within two inches of the skull, and death quickly followed. He threw it away in the box before making his leap to the stage, and that is ho'w the little weapon got into the hands of the government. In the butt of the little pistol are two old-fashioned percussion caps. They are mildewed with age and worthless, but Mr. Saxton says: "These little caps are just as they were found in the butt of the pistol." When Mr. Saxton shows them He gets a sheet of glass, or pure white paper, and dumps the little caps out. No stranger is permitted to touch them. Mr. Saxton next produced one of the little wooden pill boxes, and out of it came the leaden bullet which had :aused Mr. Lincoln's death. It had originally been a round bullet, but was Alightly flattened by impact with the president's skull, and it was shown just as it came from the hands of the army surgeons who had extracted it. It is precisely the size and shape of an old- fashioned oval lemon candy drop. It weighs about a quarter of an ounce. "This," said Mr. Saxton, as he took up a little steel rod with a fine point, "is the probe with which they found the bullet." "These," continued the custodian of the sacred treasures, "are the fragments of bones taken from the wound- Thsy are little scraps of the bony structure of Mr. Lincoln's skull." The little box containing them is lined with velvet and covered with a watch crystal, so they can be seen, but not handled. Mr. Saxton has next to show a pocket compass, which Booth used to direct him in his flight through the Maryland swamps. Though unused now ' and carefully locked up, the needle still points unerringly. It is in a small leather case, lined with velvet, and the droppings of sperm from the candle, which Booth used at night to note his observations, yet disfigure the velvet in which the compass is set. This is one of the most interesting of "the hidden relics of the great tragedy. Booth's diary taken from his dead body, after he was killed in the barn at Garrett's farm, has been time and tima again printed, but scarcely any body of v generation ever saw ine original. Mr. Saxton has it among his treasures. It h a small leuther-cov- ered boo!; V'-r'.nr'ki.'j with April H 1 , 1SG.\ all n;—•- .;•-.-' ''ilTfyr, having bnvo cut out, presumably by the assassin himself. • The contents of the remaining pages, which • close abruptly, on April 21, are simply the ravings of a, crazed man in his Qight, after what he repeatedly tarms "the great deed." The matter itself has no great interest at this 'late day, but the little leather-covered book in itself has. Booth wrote a regular hand, effeminate in its alignment. It was of the Italian type, smalj and compact. On one of the small pages of his diary he could put one thousand words. lie wrota with a lead pencil, and the entries seem to be as fresh as when written. Nobody can copy those without permission of the secretary of war— a privilege accorded to but few, and [cw ask for it, for they arc raving, wandering observations, that have little coherency, :rad are of no value as relating to the great conspiracy. But there is one compartment of the little pocket diary that does contain something interesting. These arc four cartes dc visite of actresses famous in Booth's time for their beauty. Each picture is tinted, as was the custom in those days. Miss Effic Gcrtnon, once leading lady at Wallack's, is one. It is a fair, young face, strikingly beautiful. The hair is combed down over the temples and ears, as was the faslion thirty years ago, but the features are fresh and girlish. Miss Germon, if living, is now an old woman, and they say she is fac. Caroline Riehings, the once famous singer, is another face that figures in this historic dairy. She, too, is fresh and fair. - Her picture is taken in profile and from the back of her head and abotvt her ears hangs a profusion of short and kinky curls. Brady, of New York, is the photographer of both these. The third picture, Mr. Saxton said, nobody knew who it was, but his visitor had doubts as to whether Mr. Saxton was speaking the exact truth. The picture looked liked one of Olive Logan, who was once a noted actress in New York and since an authoress of repute. The visitor asked if it was she, but Mr. Saxton busied himself about something else. The lady was full of face, with great dark eyes, and on her head was arranged a lace scarf in Spanish fashion. The reticence of Mr. Saxton was afterwards explained when it became known that this was the picture of a daughter of one distinguished senator from a New England state and the wife of another now living from the same section. The foi'^'h picture in the diary is that, of Rose Eytinge, long since retired fi-om the public gaze. All these women were then in the heyday of their yout-i and popularity, and at the very zenith of their careers. Perhaps those who are living may read with astonishment that their early portraits are being so carefully guarded by the judge advocate general of the army. In fact so carefully does the judge advocate general guard these pictures that he will not permit them to be copied. He was closely pressed the other day to permit this, but he said: "No, you can make pictures of all the inanimate things, but I do not think it fair to make drawings of the pictures of the ladies whose portraits were found in- Booth's diary. Some of them are living—all of them have friends—and I do not think it fair at this late day to give their features the publicity which you propose. One of the ladies whose face figures there you could not copy anyhow, but without reference to her I do not think that it would be fair, even to Mr. Booth's old associates on the stage, to bring their portraits into prominence." And Gen. Lieber drew the line right there. But he said: "Go on with your other pictures." Then came the hideous dirk. This wag the weapon that Booth brandished in his hand when he jumped upon the stage and shouted "Sic Semper Tyran- nis." With it he slashed his way across the stage, striking blindly like a wild man. No matter who came in his way he went at him furiously. Dr. Withers, who was then the leader of the orchestra at Ford's theater, happened to be in the wings. He heard the shot and inquiringly put his head out to find out what was the trouble. Booth rushed upon him like a hurricane, with one hand brushed him aside and with the other made a furious drive with the dagger. Dr. Withers is yet alive but he carries a mark on his arm, which he often shows to his friends. Even Spangler, the accomplice, stumbled across the infuriated man's path and received a stroke from the weapon. As Booth darted from the stage door of the theater and plunged for the horse in waiting he threw the knife away and it was found by the government official. It is a clean cut blad'e, double-edged and with-an old-fashioned silver plated hilt; the handle is of deer-horn, and the blade is embellished with all sorts c< inscriptions, such as "America," "Home of the brave and land of the free," "Liberty and Independence," but the manufacturer's name appears as Mason of Sheffield. ' A tiny little copper, medal or token, said to have been blessed by the pope, which was found on Booth's breast at his death, is still preserved carefully. The club, or piece of scantling, before referred to, was then brought out. The little piece of .wood had more to do: with the conviction, sentence and final hanging of the conspirators than anything- else. It was the brace of a door, It was proved that on the day before Mr. Lincoln was killed Booth "and Spangler, the stage carpenter, fixed the box of the president so that the assassin could enter it at any moment. They took off the lock of the door to prevent anybody else closing it. When Booth entered the vestibule of the box he closed the door and put up the wooden bar to hold it '• against any incomers while he was nerving himself to hia work. That is the wooden bar that Mr. Saxton has to show. It is covered with Mr. Lincoln's blood. It has been worn by constant handling. It was that, because it was proved that he made it, which sent Stage Carpenter Spanglei to the Dry Torttigas for t%vcl ve years. It camo very near hanging him. :;. n \\ 1890 Worn-out, "run-down," feeble women, need Dr. Piercc'.s Favorite Prescription. It builds them up.

SMALL" BUT SUDDEN. A Sleeper Who Objected to Being Pestered For Fun. A small man, who had evidently grown weary in his efforts to extract comfort from a corncob pipe, fell asleep in the corner seat and soon was loudly snoring. He became the cynosure of all eyes in the car, and one venturesome individual led in a general laugh. The small man slept on and snored more emphatically. Now and then, when his head would drop over on his chest, he recovered himself with a snort that made a nervous passenger on the other side of the car start from his seat. The practical jok T was present and soon began operations. He pinned to the sleeper's coat a paper bearing the sentence: "This is my busy day." Thenhe decorated the small man's hat with newspapers and was about to stripe his face with burnt matches when the small man awoke. The practical joker had certainly succeeded in making plenty of fun, but he himself did not seem to enjoy it. The small man landed his left fist on the joker's nose and his right between his eyes, kicked him on the shins and butted him on the chest. Before the other passengers could interfere he had reduced the joker's face to a highly colored illustration of a Chinese celebration. Then he quietly remarked: "It's kind o' funny that the champion amateur lightweight o' the Twenty- fourth ward can't get a snooze without havin' some idjut pesterin' him."-— Brooklyn Eagle. —A French paper contains the following advertisement: "A governess— with diploma— would like to accompany a musical lady to the country and on the piano." Here is another: "Wanted — a French nurse who loves children of 3, 5 and S years." And here is the queerest: "Wanted — A professor to come twice a week to the house of a noble family in order to reform the pronunciation of a parrot." A Physicians Advice.
