There are a number of relics of the
President scattered here and there
about Washington. In the National
Museum there is a pair of dove-col
ored chamois skin gloves whice were
made for the President just before he
was assassinated but which he never
wore. Here, too, is a model of his
patent for lifting vessels over shoals,
and in a case near by you may see a
lock of his brown hair laid away with
that of the other Presidents. A man
named Petersen, who was a son of the
man who owned the house in which
Lincoln died, has tlie pillow case and
quilt upon which he breathed his last
breath. They are clotted and stained
with blood, but Petersen considers
them worth a great deal and he would
hardly sell them for their weight in
There is a tall, thin messenger at
the White House named Pendle who
has been there for nearly thirty years,
and who was on duty on the night
that the President was shot. He will
tell you how he was affected by little
Tad Lincoln, sobbing and crying: “Oh!
they have killed my papa! My poor
papa! Let me go to my papa! ’’ Pen
dle worships the memory of little Tad
and his father. In a tiny gold locket
he has a little band of the President’s
hair, and in a camphor-scented box he
keeps a fine black broadclo a coat, one
sleeve of which is badly cut. It was
in this coat that the President died,
and Pendle treasures it as though it
was a veritable cloth of gold. A man
named Forbes, who lives in Washing
ton, has the shawl and black silk stock
worn by Lincoln when he was shot,
and he is also the owner of a beauti
fully carved cane given to the Presi
dent by a Pennsylvania regiment, as
well as the pocket-knife of the Presi
dent. Forbes is said to have been m
the box the night Lincoln was shot, as
one of his attendants.
The arms of John Wilkes Booth and
some relics connected with his death
are still kept here at Washington. A
piece of Booth’s vertebras is shown in
the exhibition cases of the Medical
Museum, which is now kept in Ford's
Theater, where the assassination oc
curred. This theater has never been
used as a place of amusement since the
night of the great crime. A short time

Valuable Experiments on the Inocula-
billty of This Terrible Disease.
Dr. Carlos Finlay, of Havana, has
published the results of several ixperi-
ments he has made on the inoculability
of yellow fever. He performed the
operation, or rather got it performed
for him by mosquitoes, which he caused
first to sting a patient suffering from
yellow fever and shortly afterward a
healthy person who was to be (with his
own consent of course) the subject of
the experiment. He found that the dis
ease was only inoculable from the third
to the sixth day. When two mosquitoes
were employed, so that a double ijose
was given, the symptoms of the experi
mental disease were somewhat more
severe than when only a single mos
quito was used. Of eleven cases of in
oculation, six were efficacious, one
doubtful and four negative. The period
of incubation varied from five to four
teen days; the symptoms consisted of
headache, pyrexia, ¡Ejection, with
sometimes an icteric tint of the con
junctiva, and in someeas salbuminuria.
The fever lasted, as in the ordinary
form, from five to twenty-one days.
The author believes that thismethod of
producing artificial yellow fever will
ultimately be found very valuable as a
prophylactic against the natural and
dangerous form of the disease.— London
