C î NCINNATUS.
Should Seek the .Man.
The first itersoti to inaugurate the baneful
theory that the office should seek the man—a
theory which li.r ran • t more unhappiness
than any other advanced in the great realm
of politics—was a party called Lucius Quin-
tius, or Cincinnatus, because he wore his hair
in curls, also because he had at one time re
sided in Cincinnati.
In the fall of 458 B. C., after a long, dry
season and a prolonged and futile bull move
ment in which Cincinnatus went forth to
summer fallow the west field, hoping by that
process and a judicious rotation in crops to
head off the chinch bug and the bears. He
was a good deal depressed mentally and physi
cally. Ho had been trying to break a new
pair of wild and fractious 4-year-okl steel’s,
and it had required a good deal of timing
and perspiration to accomplish this. He had
not yet fully succeeded, in fact, for every
little while the steers would light out for the
marsh nt n high rate of speed, and Cincinnatus
would have to follow them through the dew
berry patch in his bare legs, for Cincinnatus
did not wear pantaloons winter or summer.
I have given the reader a good view of
Cincinnatus, as I remember him, in the ac
companying drawing, which I have made in
order that those who wish may set; the fea
tures of the most celebrated po itician of all
time. He was the man who fli’st advanced
the doctrine that the office should seek the
man, and ever since that time it is no uncom
mon thing to see a man holding on by the
plow bandit's and looking over his shoulder,
expecting that a good office will climb the
fence pretty soon and kianap him.
Cinoinnatun waitin'/ to he kidnaped.
Here, then, is Cincinnatus, the man who
first made this discovery. The artist has
happily caught the expression of this eminent
man just as the office is in the act of seeking
him. He has resolved to sell his life as dearly
as possible. He will yield at last, however,
and tear himself away from his precocious
In the distance, too far off in fact to work
into this issue of the paper, is the toga of
Cincinnatus. It is hanging on a tall pole as a
flag, where he has used it to “sight”across the
field while he struck out a long furrow. To
look at the furrow few would lxjlievo that the
great dictator intended to strike out for the
The artist has caught the true idea in this
picture, and shows the great statesman and
general in the pose of a thoughtful andphilan-
thropicul man, who has fully decided that at
the prevailing price of wheat he would care
fully and prayerfully consider any overtures
that might be made by those having the good
of the people at heart.
Cincinnatus was an austere man of the
patrician stylo of architecture and carefully
reached 1ns hair, as well as the tail of his
Roman mule. He was im|Mu ious in the ex
treme and courted an investigation whenever
the papers got after him. He was the pioneel
in this line.
The day came at last when a dark horse
wits needed and the chairman of the Roman
central committee went to Cincinnatus to
seek out the great man. The chairman is
just getting over the barls'd wire fence and
the eminent Roman agriculturist bus at that
moment got his eye on him, as our artist
rapidly transfers the portrait to canvas.
It was but the work of a moment to unyoke
old Brin and Bally and accept the office of
dictator. Putting on his toga, the great man
began to dictate in less than forty-eight
hours. He wont to tin; house, washed his
hands in a tin basin of cistern water, with
soft soap, put some fresh fine cut in the in
side pocket of his toga, and was drawing a
salary on the following Monday at II o’clock.
The first thing ho did was to call for more
troops. He then marched against the enemy
and captured overylx»dy. He then returned,
having been dictator sixteen days at S2 per
day. Ho drew his pay and resigned to accept
the portfolio of buckwheater on his own

If we read the history of CincinnAtus care

portrait as it is her» presented we are forced

The champion liar hails from Pike county,
Ind., and the following yarn is probably the
greatest effort of his life: “A young lady who
was watching my binding harvester at work
fi’ll upon the tublo ami was carried up with
tho grain. As the girl was about the size of
a bundle, tho muchine did not recognize the
difference, and so she came through with a
neat little string around her waist. One of
the harvest hands caught her as the machine
‘kicked* her out, and set her on the ground
right si<le up, when it was found that she had
been more frightened than hurt.” Now, if
this veracious agriculturist «had only added
that tho machine threshed the young woman,

One of the most remarkable of these
was Thomas Topham, who, about the
year 1740, kept the Keil Lion public
house at tho corner of City road. Al
though of average size an I appearance.,
he soon attracted attention by his pro
digious strength. Some of his feats are
almost incredible. By striking an iron
poker an inch thick on his bare arm he
could bend it to a right angle, and
pewter measures were crushed between
his fingers. Standing on a platform he
raised a weight of eight hundred
pounds. He could break two-in li rope
as a shopman breaks twine. VV hilst at
Derby his performance was patronized
by Mr. Chambers, the vicar of All
Saints, a man of great weight in in

weighing fourte -n stone, sitting upon
him to keep him down, which they

In addition to his strength of body
he possessed a powerful pair of lungs
and a voice of great compass, of which
he was intensely proud, so much so that

Many of his feats were of a humor

the temerity to insult him, he tied an
iron kitchen spit round his neck, leav
ing the ends protruding under his chin.
Passing a watchman who was asleep
in his box ho took up both box an I

d stance, and threw them over a wail
into a church-yard. The thoughts of a
superstitious old man on being tlius

find himself mixed up with his box and
gravestones m ty be easily imagined.
On another occasion a butcher, strug
gling along under the weight of nearly
naif an ox, which he carried on lr«
back, happened to pass an open window
at which Topham was seated in calm
meditation, with his mug of b ler
