the unlucky past iwervj wont to arken to the seductive story of hef Investment company man ani woman sIio at tht time werequite numerous thoughout the land Intact the town h- Shit hard and the blow fell upon thdjust and upon the unjust and upon the Wise and those other- wiSe As the sequel promises to disclose however the former class dr the wifce ones are found only mongthose who at thatparticjui lartime had other use fort their money and were content with a slower process of getting rich But it was alluring though wasnt it that tale of the Invest ent agent and you husbands whose wives took a little stoCk in the sure thing neednt grin and say I told you so for many of you would have taken a whirl yourself probably had you not been prevented by lack of circumstances An estimate of the the amount of lithograph certificates with gold seals and unclipped coupons stored around in desks and bureau drawers places the area when smoothed not by the agents process of smoothing1 however equal to that of the surface of the reservoir of the Springfield Water- Works This estimate may be a littleextravagant but as we said before the town is hit hard and the strange part of it is that up to the present time there has been very little squealing but there are rumblings in the air 8U has foreshadow an approach ing storm and we may expect to see it burst at any time BY SHOULD THEYBUt speaking of6 bursting I notice that several of these in vestment companies have gone under Why this should ever have happened it is hard for one who has invested to conceive It must have been a case of gross carelessness on the part of the management for it has been my observation that these companies whose management understands its business have been conducted on a plan that precludes the possibility of a loss appearing in theaccunts of the concern Dues are demanded with the regujarity pf the moons changes and dividends of late have be come so scarcethat we doubt if ximjr evidence of one having been e rIpaid in this neck of the could he discovered with a search warrant But they say that the U S postal authorities are breaking them Up by refusing the use of the mails to them Well thatj is fortunate and it provesthat our Uncle Sam las a wise head in protecting his chil dren who are incapable of pro tecting themselves t lgELEPHONE SERVICE Some little apprehension has been expressed among the patrons of the local telephone ser vice since the property has changed hands lest the new owners seek to establish new and increased rates There is probably no town in the state that has been so fortunate as has Springfield n enjoying the benefit of cheap telephone service Sub scribers to the local service have also received the benefit of free connections not only with all points in the county but by Son tracts with the Lebanon exchange and Campbellsville they have been enabled to connect with the lines in these towns and to talk free of an extra cost It is well known that it is the policy of the Cumberland Telephone and Tele graph Co the new owners of the Washington county lines to maintain toll rates between towns wherever possible and for that reason there has been some un easiness concerning the future service to bVexpected It will be a relief to many to know that if contracts made with every precaution to mak them iron clad go for anything there is no danger of the local public being put to any additional expense or inconvenience by reason of the change in ownership of the tele phons lines la the first pla e befor the Washington County Telephone Cowas allowed the exclusive privilege of operating an exchungp in the town of Springfield it was bcun 1 up wth a contract fix ng the rates tJ bs charged and naming the five connections to be maintained This contra c further specified that any successor or assign of the Washington County Tele phone Company shall carry out the provisions of the contract under penalty of being allowed the exclusive privileges in the town To make the matter doubly secure Mr W C Mc Chord of the Washington County company has required the new ownerS of the lines to agree to comply with all of the provis ions of the contract of old company with the town As a matter of factthe patrons of the tele phones are in a good position No franchise has ever been granted to any telephone com pany and the one now operating is doing so under a contract with the town to adhere to the certain rates and privileges under penal ty of forfeiture of exclusi b rights 1m LightIcompany a reward for any information leading to the detection of the parties whoamused themselves a few nights ago by shooting to pieces the electricstreet light hanging at tile extreme end of East Main street It iis to be hoped that the action will lead to the arrest qnd conviction of the guilty ones It seems to be a favorite pastime with a lot of toughs who periodically come to town and load up on mean whiskey to begin to shoot a few shoots as they leave town Since the advent of the electric lights these c wouldbe terrdrs halve something for a target where formerly they simply shot to make a nqise The law pro vides a remedy of sufficient severity to teach such ducks a lesson if they can be caught and heres hoping that they will be found out There is probably no disease or condition of the human system that

week is now much greater than was at first estimated The East Tennessee Telephone system is badly wrecked by broken lines and poles and almost all connection with neighboring points have been cut off The Anderson County Telephone Co wasjpecu liarly fortunate as compared with the od companys dam age as but one pole and a few lines are reported broken in the county Farmers coming in report that the orchards all over the county are almost entirely de stroyed and that many of the roads are next to impassable on account of fallen timber An derson News REMARKABLE TWINS Are VaRBvren and Richard

happened it is not garnered except by the left hand of history but It is strictly Uncolnlan and might well have happened anyway Great and sol emn occasions did not repress or dead en his propensity to Joke Thus at the Hampton Roads conference as be and Seward entered at one end of the small cabin ot the steamer River Queen be saw the diminutive tephens at the other end iin the act of einerrfnc from IlLord Lyons go thou and do likewise huge overcoat Said he sotto voce to Seward Did you ever such little nubbin in such big shuck tOtffluring the progress of that famous eOn terence- when M Hunter urged the to treat with citing the exam pie of Charles as piece dent the president promptly replied liAs to that I dont pretend to be well versed in history and therefore Ire fer you to Seward for details but all that I recollect of the precedent you cite that Charles lost UJs heM in the end That was answering fool ac- cordIng to his folly and Is the best in stance of apt repartee on record Now tbe essence of the first of these River Queen Jokes was pure fun and nothing else while the essence of the hist one was strictly utilitarIanwas absolutely demanded by the situation It put Hunter and his proposition out of the ring put him to sleep to modern slang It ended the ConCeder someIvanquishing an opposition than the bounds of good t mor required Thus when deputation of rich men from New York waited on the president In dark hour of tbe nations tribulation begging for gunboat to protect New York harbor he manifested the utmost impatience and almost paralyzed them with this reply I am straining every nerve to meet the requirements of the army and- navy at the fron and I have no gun asIas you ozen men are seared jis you pretend to be would furnish tbe gunboat myself Instead of begging tbe government for what aint got to spare He very rarely made either himself any one else butt for Joke and certainly never in malice His humor usually impersonal Once bow ever at City Point little discussion arose as to what religion Halleck think professed I think bes an Epis copalian said Lincoln because he swears Just like Seward docs and Sew 1ard an Episcopalian More In unison with

the persistent claims of SOme pretended I wish ho would quit Union men for forage etc taken by army reminded him of Captain Jack Chase to pilot a boat through the rapids of the Illinois river While In the very midst of boiling rent a small boy tugged at tbe pilots coattail shouted stop for Ive lost my apple overboard Trivial mat ters amused him equally with those of greaterstamina Along experience wit and badinage had not made callous or blunted his sense of the ludicrous Thus at the Bloomington convention he had occasion to introduce the court ly polite exquisite Browning to the coarse Irreverent Wentworth Ive heard much of yod began the pri- gDd much against me I reckon blurted out the boor Lincoln was wont to laugh over this very often Many of his stories were comparisons of the situation In hand with some thing that happened down in some where Thats like the man down in Indiana was a frequent introduction Thus when after a long interval of si lence he received news not altogether favorable from Burnside beleaguered at KnoxvIlle he neither lamented at the untoward aspect of the news nor nThffg hut simply said Thats like Sallie Ward who bad thirteen children that were accustomed to stray out Into the woods from the depths of which would occa sionally float an Infantile cry of disaster when Srillle would exclaim Thank heaven theres one of my children what aint dead yet In order to Illustrate the moral un cleanliness of certain unsavory politi dana be was reminded of a feller who applied to a physician for advice in and aboit n cutaneous disease He needed a vry simple remedy so a prescription was given him somewhat thus R Papon castlle pz 8 Aqure purse gal M Mlscc Apply to parts of tbe body with a sponge and wipe dry with a toweL That simply means washing mel exclaimed the dirty sufferer It certainly Is to that objection replied the physician In a similar vein be took tbe starch out of a vainglorious applicant for a minor office who In order to magnify his importance hove In quite unnecep sarlly the suggestion that he sprang from one of tbe leading families of Vermont Never mind said the jo cose president that wont be very much against you So In order to Illustrate the well known aphorism that tbe remedy pro posed by the situation was worse than tbe exigency It was proposed tp cure be was reminded of the man down in Danville who bad occa sion to bead up a hogshead but did not clearly discern how to keep the bead In position while be tight ened the staves by driving the hoops down the who used small the cur and Capn de boat with all open That wont be against you muchI but a brilliant expedient struck him He then placed his young son In tbe bogs bead where his height Just served to keep the recalcitrant beading In place when he adjusted the bead properly and the experiment seemed to be a sue cess till the Imprisoned boy yelled Let me out of betel Once be came in official contact with Judge Baldwin the author of the humorous book so highly prized by Lin coin Flush Times In Alabama Had he known who his distinguished visitor was his reception would have been dir ferent for tbe president cherished a real humorist above all men The Judge was born and bred In the Shen andoah valley and migrated first to Alabama where he wrote this book thencto California where he became chief Justice of the state and seeking In 1863 to revisit his childhoods home came on to Washington and applied first to Justice Field then to HaleCk both of whom he well knew to gain the needed permission but being cir cumvented by Stanton he convoyed by Justice Field sought the aid of thef president who asked If he had seen Stanton Yes ho had and had been contemptuously turned down Then said Lincoln I cant help you for Ive very little influence with this admin istratlon He was accustomed to narrate this experience while he was in congress Upon an occasion of tellers being somehow ordered OIl an unimportant matter a pudgy bibulous member started In a zigzag bacchanalian gait from the rear of the house down the center aisle making strenuous efforts to keep his head In line as if he had a drop of sweat on the end of his nose which be was afraid would drop to use Lincolns own words Tbe offJ was ludIctttbe general at l J tention Wt1stlXe40ntn1J staggering devotee of Bacchus and no member attempted to follow but when he reached the tellers he suspecting something to be wrong carefully turn lug his head and realizing the comic situation but which was not so com ical to 1mBald tOh h1 and with drunken gravity staggered back tp his seat the house sparing vlth glee It was stated at the time that Ben Wade chairman of the committee on the conduct of the war called to Com plain of something when Lincoln start oed to sdy

as the irate senator rushed put trying to put his hat on the floor and his cane on his head As to the form of humor Mark Twain lri his essay on How to Tell a Story yery little Influ IIV with this ad says It depends entirely on the manner of lt- snarration while wit depends on the essence of the matter A nd this distinction is not pedantic as applied to Lincoln for even his stories need the Injspl ration of his action to achieve their crowning merit and as to the essence df humor Carlyle aptly says that the essence of humor is sensibility warm tender fellow feel ing with all forms of existence Unless seasoned and purified by humor sensibility will readily corrupt Into dlr ase falsehood or senti mentality And Mr Lincolns penchant for hu mor was not an Inane diversion but was the fringe and passementerie of a great crisis in government How Lincoln Paid a Board Bill While Mr Lincoln waa studying law at Petersburg he and a friend named Hanks arm a law student boarded at Alfred Gordons
