    Biographical Information An old tradition is that when a child he was very large of his age, and, to save him from conscription at a time when boys were being called upon to enter the army, his mother, mindful of his tender years, put him in one of the big ovens to hide him from the soldiers. On one occasion, either he or one of his brothers got into earnest political discussion with a neighbor, on a summer's evening, while putting the cows out to pasture for the night ; they stood at the bars as they talked, and when the dawn came it found them there, the debate still going on.
