Llncoln's Horse Trade.
Abraham Lincoln was fond of a good
story and it is a well known fact that be
often illustrated an important point in
the business at baud by resorting to bia
favorite pastime. Probably one of the
bett he ever told he related of himself
when he was a lawyer in Illinois. One
day Lincoln aod a certain judge, who
was an intimate friend of bis, were ban
tering each other about horses, a favorite
topic of theirs. Fiually Lincolu said :
"Well, look here judge, I'll tell you
what I'll do. I'll make, a horse trade
with you, only it must be upon these
stipulations: Neither party shall sea
tho other's horse until it is produced
here iu the courtyard of tbe hotel and
both' parties must trade horses. If
either party backs out of I ha agreement
he does bo under a forfeit of $25."
"Agreed," cried the judge, and both
he and Lincoln went in quest of their re
A crowd gathered anticipating aome
fun, and w hen the judge returned firet,
the laugh was uproarons. He led, or
rather drugged, at the end of a baiter,
the meaueat, boniest, riVstariog ud
tupod bliud in both eye3 that ever
picsned tuif. But presently Lincoln
came along crryiug over his thoiilder a
carpeuter's borte. Then the mirth of
the crowd was (urioua, Lincoln sol
emnly set bia horse down anil nilontly
surveyed the judge's animal with a com
ical look of infinite, disgudt.
"Well, judge," he finally eid, "this is
the tirst time I ever got the wort of it io

Weyler's Cruel Orders.
For pure brutality and reckless waste
of human Iife.it would be difficult to
mt'ch Weyler's order that all men not
Sanu-h soldiers, who are caught on
mile away from a fortified city shall to
kilUI. It ia hard to believe that in this
m of the world a nation calling herself
civilized can countenance the taking of
human life without justification or even
the form of a trial, but there seems to be
no reason to donbt the report, and it is
qnite in keeping with the general tone of
reports of Spanish cruelty In Cuba.
Weyler was called "the butcher" before
he rose to hia present rank, and he
eema determined to sustain his reputa-
ton. The consequence of his order can
i) well imagined. With the men dead,
the crops destroyed, the cattle slaugh
tered, nothing but starvation is left for
the women and children. The" plague of
smallpox ia ravaging the island, too, and
thus the dreadful state of affiirs in

An Alleged Cure for ConsmpUo n
New York, Jan. 27 .The unusual in
terest taken by physicia-ts and the pub
lic in the treatment of pulmonary tuber
culosis, or conaumpti u, or consumption,
as it is commonly lullad, will-ba in
creased by tbe news that a serum has
bean discovered which, it is claimed,
will prove xt lis absolute cure for tbe
disease in its stage, and will greatly
benefit patients and arrest tbe progress
of the disease in its advanced forms.
The serum is the discovery of Professor
Maria Giano, of Geuoa, Italy. A small
quantity was brought to this country aod
physicians of St. Luke's hospital began
experimenting with it a week ago. Tbe
serum is obtaiued from tbe blood of
horses which have been inoculated with
tuberculosis germs io small quantities
and continued under this treatment for
several months. Its effei t is to produce
n the bload of horses soma quality ol re
sistance to death, which, when intro
duced into the human system, susUlns
the reeistiug power.
The serum theory ii therefore sx
actly opposite to the theory of vaccina
tion, which, introiluces'garms of the dis
ease into tbe system, and by producing
the disease in a mud form reoders the
body impervious to its further attacks.
The New York board of health estl
mates that G00O erons died of con
sumption in that city during tbe past
year, that upward of 20,000 are afflicted
with it now and that from thirty to fifty
are infected daily. It is the belief of the
board that the disease can bo extermi
nated if proper precautions are taken
and it urges the adoption of measures to
that end. It seems these opinions are
shared by similar beards in other largo
cities ol tbe East and it is likely that
far-reaching efforts will be eventually
mad to Btatnp out this plague.
