MEN ARE KILLED
PTKEl.TOX, Pa., March 23. (f.

corner of East Depitt and College
streets in the sleepy little town where
Johnson, who was born in Raleigh, N.
C, emigrated at the age of eighteen.
Having served his apprenticeship to
a tailor, Johnson opened his first shop
In Greensville. After a year he was
married to Miss Eliza McCardell to
whose lot it fell to teach her young
husband to write and undertake other
educational preliminaries' as Johnson
knew only his letters when he became
head of his own house, having never
attended school a day in his life.
Johnson's political career began as
alderman of Greeneville. He then
served as mayor, was elected to the
lower house of the legislature, then
slate senator, afterward to congress,
became governor of Tennessee serving
two terms, United States senator, mili
tary governor of Tennessee, was elect-,
ed PrH vice prwident of the United
States and became president upon the
death of Lincoln. His final political
office was that as United States sena
tor from Tennessee.
Johnson, while governor of Tennes
see, once resumed his vocational im
plements. . He had formed a strong
Friendship In the Tennessee legisla
ture, for W. IV. Pepper, of Springfield,
a staunch Whig and once a black
smith. Respite their irreconcilable
political creeds tbe personal relations
of Johnson and Pepper were extremely
cordjal. Pepper became Judge of the
.seventh judicial district in 1S54 and
after a visit to Johnson, then gover
nor, set about making a present to his
friend, fashioning a shoyel which he
sent with a note explaining it was In
tended as a memento of a friendship
that was proof against all political
Johnson, to show his appreciation of
the token, took up his scissors and
needle and made a handsome beaver
cloth which he pressed and sent ,to
Pepper. It wus a splendid jiiece of
workmanship, probably the last pf
that kind of work Johnson ever 'did.,
exists to this day, tbe property of W.
W. lvpper. Judge Pepper's .only sur
viving son. The coat was made about
11 years before Johnson entered the
White House and the movement to
preserve his old tailor shop In Greene
ville by legislative enactment has re
vled that story of the tailor presi

The upshot of the whole Invcstiga-1
t!on was that the following recom-1
mendallons are to be made.
N'o rliange In M. P.'s salaries, liui '
that the 400 pounds should be regard-1
ed as expenses and therefore not sub-
