They Are printed in accordance with the late act of 1903. Price 5 cents each of about the Middle of the third act a shot was heard and immediately thereupon rang out John Wilkes Booth s cry Quot sic Semper Tyraunis Quot not after he reached the stage As has been stated in some accounts neither did he jump from the Box full height with arms outspread and up stretched. As we often see him in illustrations. On the contrary he placed both hands up on the rail of the Box and swung himself Over in that manner thereby lessening the fall by the distance of Nis own height. One of his own spurs caught in the american colors with which the Box was draped Aud he probably lauded his whole weight of one foot. On striking the stage he pitched Forward on All fours Aud i then saw the Blade of a Long stiletto or Dagger Glisten in the footlights As his hand Lay of the floor. He quickly Rose to his feet and took one or two Uncertain Steps Theu turning to face the audience Drew himself up in theatrical attitude and swinging his Arm in n half Circle made a grand flourish with the Dagger and was of the stage in a Flash. Next came the piercing and horrifying shrieks of mrs. Lin Colu and then arose a fearful commotion. Directly efforts were made by some parties to get into the Box from the outside but the door was barred from the inside. I next noticed a military officer standing of the shoulders of another mail and endeavouring to climb up to the Box from the stage. Meantime the president had remained sitting in his chair with his head Bent Forward but i distinctly saw hint Rise once to his feet and in a dazed sort of Way attempt to take a step or t 0. He was not upright hut half Crecy. Just then major rat Honc came to his assistance Atul supported by the latter he Sank Back into the chair. About this time i noticed miss Laura Kretic who had reached the Box from the private Way Back of the stage and who was said to have brought a Glass of water which might refresh the president. The bar against the door having been removed from the inside several people went into the Box from the dress Circle and Little More could be distinguished thereafter. Strangely enough an Assa Sioa Tion plot seemed to have been understood at once for word was passed around that the place would be blown up. There was a general rash to vacate the theatre and from our position we were necessarily about the inst ones that could possibly leave the place. On nearing the doorway we saw two men approaching from the passage Way Back of the Box with the form of the president carried on in improvised Stretcher As it now seems to me a window shutter or something of that nature and we Stop red to let them pass. They were hastening from the building As Well As they could Aud the president s head was thrown Back Aud banging somewhat Down. He was quite unconscious. Seemed perfectly Limp and was bleeding slightly from the wound in his head just As they passed by i glanced on the floor and seeing a Crimson Blotch 011 the piece of Piper herewith illustrated i picked it tip. That the Marks thereon Are the life blood of Abraham Lincoln is As certain As that he was shot on the Date and in the place mentioned. Might was right. Interesting Strunc e for a leg of Mutton.
