It will be forty-one years tonight that
Abraham Lincoln, President of the United
States, was shot and fatally wounded by
John Wilkes Booth, while witnessing a
performance of "Our American Cousin"
in Ford's Theatre, m Washington, D. C.

which had cost so many precious lives
and enormous sacrifices of money, was
plunged into darkest gloom by the hands
of a fanatical assassin. ' On the morning
of that eventful day President Lincoln had
the first opportunity in many months to
have a long talk with his eldest son. Cap
tain Robert Lincoln, who had been serving
on the staff of Gen. Grant Father and
son breakfasted together at the White
House and then had a long talk concern
ing the profession which the young staff
officer was to adopt It was due to
President Lincoln's advice that Capt Lin
coln gave up his military career and con
tinued his study of law. Later in the
forenoon President Lincoln attended the
last meeting of the Cabinet All the
members were present excepting Mr,
Seward, the Secretary of State, who had
broken hit Jaw in falling from his horse a
short time before. Not a single one of
the members of Prttident Lincoln's Cab'
inet is now living. Gen. Grant was
present by invitation and occupied the va
cant seat of Secretary Seward.
The situation after the close of the war
was discussed and President Lincoln
spoke with kindness of Geo. Lee and ex
pressed himself strongly against harsh
measures in the South. The terms of
Lee's surrender were fully approved
During the afternoon the President re
ceived many visitors and toward evening
he was tired out. He did not wish to go
to the theatre, but did not want to disap
point the people who were sure to crowd
the house, as it had been announcod that
President Lincoln and General Grant
would attend the performance.
Just before starting for the theatre,
President Lincoln paid his customary
visit to Secretary Stanton, at the war de
partment. It just happened that the
President while returning to the White
House, accompanied by Secretary Stan'
ton, referred to the Secretary's often eX'
pressed fear that some assassin would
seek the life of the President. Mr. Lin
coin said he was confident that hit guardt
would not allow an assassin to get at
him, and even if some fanatic should suc
ceed, he would not be able to escape with
A few hours later. President Lincoln,
with Mrs. Lincoln, his two sons and Ma'
jor Rathbone occupied a box in Ford's
theatre, on the right side of the stage and
about fourteen feet above the level of the
stage. It was at the close of the first act
that Booth fired the fatal shot and leaped
from the box upon the stage, injuring his
leg by falling, having caught his foot in
one of the flags on the side of the stage.
Before Booth escaped, he stabbed Will
iam S. Withers, of Wakefield, who blocked
his way. Withers was arrested, but
proved hit innocence and positively ident
ified Booth as the assassin.
Wounded to death, President Lincoln
was carried from the theatre, amid
scene of indescribable excitement He
was takn to a house across the street
occupied by a tailor named Peterson and
year. He was at that time one of Presi
dent Lincoln's secretaries. On the night
President Lincoln's death Mr. Hay be
came the possessor of the ring worn by
the dead President He had it made over
with a crystal setting, containing a lock of
President Lincoln's hair. It was this ring
which President Roosevelt wore at his
inauguration, at the suggestion of Mr.
Hay. . " ,
