WILL RESTORE VILLAGE
WIHERE LINCOLN LIVED
Petersburg, Ill., Dec. 5.-The visitor
approaching Petersburg next year may
be surprised to see a little log village
resting on top of Old Salem hill. It
will be the restored village of New
Salem, where Abraham Lincoln kept
store, read law, engaged in the vigor-
ous rural sports of the community
and loved Ann Rutledge.
A survey has been completed for the
restoration of the roads which ran
through the village. The well in front
of the place where the Rutledge tav-
ern once stood has been cleaned out
and is now in use. All that remains of
New Salem is a number of depressions
in the ground where the buildings once
stood. The Lincoln league secured the
co-operation of all the old residents
at Petersburg in that vicinity in deter-
mining the identity of the various
In this way markers have been plac-
ad on the site of the first store kept by
Uincoln; the Rutledge tavern, where
Lincoln lived for five years and where
he fell in love with Ann Rutledge, the
daughter of the tavernkeeper; the Lin-
coln and Berry store, in which Lincoln
owned a half interest; the Cameron
mill by the river bank, the blacksmith
;hop and the Herndon store.

WOMEN MUST SOON TILL IN
FIELDS, SAYS JAMES NICHOL
Grand Rapids, Dec. 5.-That women
in Michigan will have to work in the
orchards and fields next year, just as
they are now employed in factories, was
the statement of James Nichol, an of-
ficer of the Michigan Horticultural so-
ciety, which opened its 47th annual
convention here yesterday.
"The draft has not interferred with
.the farmer so far," said Nichol, "but
another, year will see a labor shortage
so acute that drastic means must be
taken to overcome it. By the time of
next harvest, a large percentage of
young men from the country will be
in the army."
