What Ailed the Boys.

Mr. Roland Diller, who was one of Mr. Lincoln’s neighbors in Springfield, tells the following:

"I was called to the door one day by the cries of children in the street, and there was Mr. Lincoln, striding by with two of his boys, both of whom were wailing aloud. ’Why, Mr. Lincoln, what’s the matter with the boys?’ I asked.

"’Just what’s the matter with the whole world,’ Lincoln replied. ’I’ve got three walnuts, and each wants two.’"
