arc that tho decision has been readied

to argue that both Presidents Lincoln nnd

hi April, Mny nnd June, In 1865, went on
record ns mnlntnlnlng ns contraband of
war "materials for tho fabrication Of am
munition." That cotton hns taken the
place Of saltpetre, always recognized a

A gaunt, emaciated mosquito, with dark

somcuhcrc south of Shunk street, his
senses keenly alert for tho mnn smell.
Suddenly ho cnught It, buzzed nnprlly

Behind him rose his heroic brothers and

Then South nnd West Philadelphia
lost tliolr dignity, polso, comfort, con

Tha peculiar story of being mistaken
for somebody else's llttlo girl ana being
compelled to sleep In tho other little

station today.
Ellen, acoordlng to the police, decided
to run away yesterday afternoon, and at
nightfall, unable to find her way back,
eat down on the uteps of the grocery
ttoro of Joseph Klines, ot 70S Spring Gar
den street, and cried.
"Why, that's Benner's little girl," re
marked Hunes to Ills wife, "I guess I'll
take her home.' Hunes put on his coat
and hat and took the child to the home
of Frank O. Benner, at 615 North Frank
lin street. When he reached there he
found no one nt home, so he tried the
knob nnd found the door open. Then he
took tha sobbing child, who persisted she
did not live there, up to a bedroom and
put her to bed.
The child, exhaustod by her excite
ment, fell off to sleep and was discovered
by t-year-old Elisabeth Benner when the
family returned about midnight from an
outing. Elizabeth did not care to have
her father put Bllen out of the bed. so
the children slept together.
Meantime Special Policemen Ernest and
Weckesaer had been conducting an all

As they entered the station house this
