Tho truth of tlio old proverb, "Better
lato than never," appears to havo been
illustrated by a striking modern instance,
according to an English exchange, which
relates that ninety-heven years ago somo
person, now unknown by name, posted
in Paris a number of The Gazette Univer-
6clle, directing it to "Monsieur X , in
Morges, Switzerland," but tho newspa
per did not arrive nt its destination until
art month. It teems that The Gazette,
which had been waiting for delivery over
einco January, 1701, had got mixed up
with a bundle of other newspapers, uno
was found, with its cover and nddres.1
still intact, nmidht a heap of rublrith in
ft garret. Tho (hiderconscientionsly-eent
it to tho Morges postmaster, by whom it
was as cotir-ciftiitiotisly forwarded to tho
present representative of tho X fam
ily, still living nt Morges. "So unique a
specimen of postal integrity deserves to
bo exhibited in a Ohtal museum, or
would not bo out of place among tho cu
riosities in tho newspaper museum at
Aachen." Chicago Herald.

lien betray their real characters in a
thousand different ways. The professors
of tho art of delineating dispositions do
eo in various fashions. Ono artist will
undertake to describe character from tho
examination of a photograph; another
reads indications of tastes and feelings in
handwriting-; nay, an American savant
has recently nnnounced that much may
be learned regarding a man by observing
how ho wears his boots. Every ono has
somo small peculiarities which to tho no
curat o observer may furnish a clew to
his disposition. There have been mani
fold instances of strange and incon
venient resemblances between men lead
ing to cases of "mistaken identity," and
yet probably in overy instance there was
somo trifling and overlooked personal
trait which distinguished one from tho
Other. If alike in features they differed
in dispositions. London Standard.
Origin of "Old Hickory."
The story of how Gen. Andrew Jack
son got tho name of Old Hickory is again
going tho rounds, and will bo new to
nonio young readers. During tho Creek
war ho had a bad cold, and his soldiers
mado for him n shelter of hickory bark.
Tho next morning h tipsy soldier, not
knowing who was under tho bark, kicked
it over. As tho general, speechless with
rage, struggled out of tho ruins, tho boI
ller yelled, "Hello, Old Hickory I Como
out of your bark and tnko a drink!"
When the soldiers Raw Jackson slinking
tho bark from his uniform they gave
thrco cheers for "Old Hickory," and tho
nanio stuck. Now Yor! Sun.

that the successful old merclmnts of tho

DENNIS HANKS' STORY.
rfo Called n I'n-nMrtit Lincoln mid Had
mi Iiitf-rrslinc Uxp'-rlenee.
Dennis Hanks, cousin and early com-'
panion of Abraham Lincoln, still lives,
at tho ago of 01, near Charleston, Ills.,
and tit intervals talks with much anima
tion of Lincoln's early life. Though ten
years older, ho has long outlived tho
martyr president. He gives this ac
count of Ilia only visit to Washington:
"When I went down to Washington to ,
see him it wns about a neighbor that had ,
got into trouble. The folks hero sent mo
to speak to Abe about him. It wasdurin' ,
tho war, and thnr was a lot o' soldiers ,
around tho White House stickin' their
guns In everybody's face. I went to a
door tiiar's only one, though I looked
'round fur a back door, thinkiu' to sneak
in. A porter stopped me, and asked aa
smart: 'Who do yon want to see?'
" 'I want to seo Abo Lincoln,' I says.
" 'You cim't seo him this time o' day,'
lie says as smart. '
" You bet I kin,' I answered him.
'He's not goin' back on Dennis Hanks,
his cousin, and tho boy he's rasslcd with, '
if ho is the president. I hain't come here 1
from Illinois to bo told I can't seo Abe i
"Ho grinned and showed mo tho office.
There was a lot of fellers waitin', but I
waded through 'em and opened tho door,
and thar sot Abe, as tall s his own shad
der. writin' nt a old desk ho tuk from
"'Hey!' I hollered. 'You'ro a purty
president, ain't you? Git up liyur and
shake hands. I ain't after no office yit.
" 'Well, Dennis, is that you? I'm glad
you don't want an office. Most of them
do. You've got a big heart, but no head
for an office.' Then lie run nnd jt3t geth-
cred me in to him like they did in the
Bible, and bo I wept ti little so I had to
tako my bandanner out. Ho looked
kinder tired. When I told him what I
wanted In- said:
" 'I'm busy today, but I'll get Stanton
to fix that up. You go down and Mary
will give you something to eat and a
"I knowed it was too lino for mo
whero Mary was. Sho was a good wo
man, but was too highfalutin' for me; so
I jist went to a tavern and put up. Next
mornin' Abo had a lot of papers for my
case and toltV mo to tako 'em to Stanton.
" 'Abo,' says I, 'blamed if I know
whero tho plagueoncd place is.' So he
called a feller and sent tho papers, and
pretty soon Mr. Stanton come lookin'
like a jaybird in a spike tailed coat, and
snarled about them papers', but Abo got
him to sine 'em. lie acted so ugly that
when ho went out I said:
" 'Abe, if l'sas big as you I would tako
that little feller over my knee and spank
him.' Abe, ho laughed and said he
guessed Stanton was a bigger man than
ho wits in somo respects. 1 came homo
then and tho next spring Abo was Hhot.
"I heard of it this n way. I was sit
ting iu my shop puggin' away at a shoe
when a man came iu and said: 'Dennis,
Honest Abo is dead!'
" 'Dead, dead. Old Abo dead,' I kep
sayin to myself. 'My God, it ain't so!"
I went out to seo Sairy whero sho lived
! all alone after Tom died, and said,
'Grandmother, Abo's dead.' 'Yes, I
know, says sho. 'I've ben n waitin' fur
it. I knowed they'd kill him,' and she
never nsked any questions. A body'd a
thought tho earth stopped whirliu' fur a
few days, lite way everybody went on.
It was like, even hero in Charleston, like
a black cloud that covered tho sun." Tho
dim old eyes became blurred by tho sad
Ten l'iim In lluwiili.
It was a unique game of ten pins 1
was wont to play in those days. Small
natives Hwannod like bees whenever 1
went abroad; you bee, I was tho one
haoli or foreigner who had unlimited
leisure, and they knew not at what mo
ment it might suit my fancy to embark
upon nonio erratic expedition such as
they delighted in. At u moment's notice
I could command a troop of horso worthy
of an outlaw chief, if I retired to the
billiard hall to amuse myself with the
light and airy cue, tho windows and
doors commanding tho four sides of the
table were certain to bo darkened with a
cloud of witnesses. Hut I am forgetting
tho ten pins.
Thcro was a small Kanaka for overy
pin, and one for each ball. Thoso in
somo mysterious way hung upon the
wall at tho far and fatal end of tho howl
ing alley, at tho imminent peril of life
and limb. Whenever I inndo a ten
strike, which I positively did occasion
ally, it was invariably received with a
deafening round of cheers not omitting
tho "tiger," Hut still I was not happy,
for I always feared to Hud tho alley,
after thoatmosphero hud cleared a little,
strewn with Hawaiian slain. Overland
