greatest men the world has ever known A marvelous man was Abra ham Lincoln born amid the humblest ot surroundings to finally guide the des tinies and preserve the life of a great nation throughout the most troublous and imminent of times and one of the most gigantic wars of history at the end to die a martyr So commonplace so American is the story of the great mans life up to the time when first the nisIservices It might be well for me to note something of his boyhood days as it may be of some benefit to the children of the schools We have a statement from one Washingtonjthat he remembered the wedding of Thomas Lincoln and Nancy Hanks which was solemnized in Springfield Ky June 12 1806 and after their mar riage they resided within this county for several years in a small log cabin on the Little Beech river now in the Litseyland while there a daughter Sarah was born to them who died in infancy and their son Abraham was born Feb 12 1809 Mr and Mrs Lincoln left this county and moved to Hardin county now known as LaRue county when Abraham was three years of age They resided in that county four years They then went to Spencer countY Indiana where Mrs Lincoln died in 1818 ShS was a kind Christian mother she taught her boy all she knew and he be came a great reader of everything he could find and borrow On one occasion he borrowed a book from an old farmer and on his way home he was caught in a very hard rain and damaged the book tar a great extent and the old farmer being of a peculiar disposition demand ed of Abe to pull fodder for him for three days to pay for the book which he did and after that time Mr Lincoln gave him the name of Old Blue Nose and he was known by that name the remainder of his days One of the books Mr Lincoln owned when a boy and the one he prized most highly was the Life Of George Washington and no doubt it had something to do with forming his character and shnping his ambition In 1830 his father having married again moved to Macon county Ill It was there that Abraham acquired fame as a rail splitter He became well and favorably known throughout the region The Black Hawk war came on and he was elected Captain of fr companv and

oclock a m Jan 3d 1909 age two years seven months and fifteen days It is a sad s reflection to think of our little darling being lost from our sight for ever only to be warmed by mother earth and clothed by the winters frost and snow and summer sunshine and flowers but such is Gods will He doeth all things well He recognized the little treasure He gave into life and called him home to Himself and angels to dwell forever in true happiness and to shield him from the wretchedness and nothingness of this world He came into life like a bright angel to brighten and then sadden the hearts of loving parents and friends for none knew him but to love him He was like the bright sun from under a cloud after an April shower To sweet to last He may be dead to us but what a glori ous life he will live in his heavenly home waiting for the day when all shall meet once more Grieve not dear loving father and mother for your lit tle Marvin is a bright shining angel in the service of the God who

POINTS ON PREACHING Where there is no revision tbf people perish The subject of the sermon depends on its object Some texts are only pretexts They are too apt to ibe the points of departure for a sermon A sermon that comes from the heart of the preacher will go to the hearts of his hearers It is better to begin back of the text and work Pto it than to begin with the text and work away from it or The secret or a successful sermon as of Sam Wellers valentine is in making one wish there was more Sermons should never be measured they should be weighed Not length but strength is the true test of a sermon The business of the preacher isnot to preach to men and women who are not at church but to preach to those who are there The preacher of the old theology preached as a dying man to dying manTh preacher of the new the ology must preach as a living man to lIvingmenI Do not serve your sermons up a second time cold and stale Warm them over In the growing fervor of the imag ination and emotions In which they are created Some preachers are like boys swim ming under water You see them when they dive off the text and you see them again when they bob up at the Amen hut all through the ser mon you lose sight of them because they may have gone in over their heads Homiletic Review CHURCH AND CLERGY ClarionIciey for Visiting Catholic Prisoners The twentyfifth anniversary of the Calvary

Istfppose I dont look as though II was up In the classics but thefact Is Im a graduate of Iowa Wesleyani university and Ive studied Latin Shakespeare geometry and all the rest Yes musingly once I expected to pursue a f literary career Indeed my professorsall told me that I msht be come the George Eliot or Mrs Brown ing of A nerica c But that speckled heifer I was asking you about just now knocked all my plans into a cocked hatiHow was thati I asked Well jit was like this said the cowgirl college graduate as she pushed aside her corn bread untasted and planting her elbows upon her knee propped her chin upon her palms man tashlonuIn the spring of 1885 several years after 1 had graduated my father diedand mother and I came to Coloradofand bought a ranch at Plum Creek some 23 miles south of Denver You see my father had been an in valid and ever since I can remember wed ben chasing round from pillar to Posttrying to find a climate that agreed with him so this was really what you might call the first chance I had to go to work In earnest It was a lovely quiet spot an Ideal place I thought for communing with nature and pursuing a literary career But it was not so to be Like whats his name with a tender heel 1 Achilles 1 suggested Yes like Achilles I had one weak spot that was going to be my ruin was crazy about pets Why if It hadnt been for that weak spot I might be wearing literary laurel instead of las soing c ttJebut this te neither here nor there Vhat I was going to say was that before Id been settled that ra ch three days some men ca one our waY driving a herd of Texas ca tle to Denver and as a late snowstorm dune up just then they decided to camp on good feed in the hills In front of my ranch That afternoon they came over to our house to buy bread dUd while they were there they mentioned to me that they had a nice cow that had just calved and offered if I would buy the cow to throw in the lfas they were just going to kill it WelCheie was where my weak spot f r came In No f sooner did I hear about those animals than nothing would do bui that I should have them for pets Besides the cow was offered mighty cheaponlYi8 while Id been going- ithoutmilkw rather than pay the fifty or seventyfive dollars asked for a mUch cow sp now I thought was my chance to closea bargain and get itwo nice etsJbeside Yes sir I even planned while the men were gone after those animals how I would domesticate them in a few days And it took longer I asked Domesticate II might aswell have tried to domesticate an active volcano but I mustnt anticipate My first impr ission of my pet cow wasnt exactly encouraging I had imagined her an tiling serenely up to the house mild y eki and gentle with ii e ittle calflet trotting at her side- stead she was dragged upon the scene by four m m who had spent at least an hour in catching her and ringing her to me The calf mean me after an equally exciting chase been led up and tied to a large plum bush i However I wasnt one to let a little ing hike that phase me I was determined to make friends with that cow so when about SOO yards from he house the men threw her and took off the rope I advanced with that idea But I wasnt half so anxious to make friends as they cow was As soon as she set eyes On meand if ever an animal had the evil eye that cow did she made a bee line for yours truly Look out shouted the men But 1 was already footing it pretty lively towards the thicket where e f was tied the cow after me sn rUng like a team engine almost In my ear The next thing tnat I knew I had slipped and fallen on the Ice in the porth side of the bushes wIth the cow pn top I believe that I tried to grab the creature by her horns with a wild hope that I might hold her down until the men came to the rescue I might ap veil have tried to hold down a hurries e As she rose so did I and was on riy feet 20 yards away before she cool see wlfere she was at Just as she rus led from the bush and lunged after mo I saY a rope swing through the air and the next thing that devilposses sed cow knew she was tied to a clump of thicket and left to meditate upon tits evil of her ways What did the men say to this I asked Of course they made out that they were awfully Surprised at she cows antics fearfully scared at my close call and all that but I saw them grinning and chuckling as if they were ready to burst as they rode off and I felt dead sure theyd planned to have a double funeral cow and calf both if they hadnt found a tenderfoot to unload them on However I never was one to give In that I was beaten by anything first off especially by a cow Besides that idea of having two nice pets had got a great hold on me I made up my mind that if kindness could reclaim that erring coy she should be coddled brighet arid early I started for the plum bush where she and the calf was tied determined to malts peace Fortunately two gentlemen who had heard of the depisode of the day before rode over to see me that morning and joined me on my p peacemaking expedition No sooner did the bow see me within 30 fearfulnsurge the rope that she was tied with worn thin by rubbing against the tree all night gave way and the cow nfade for me as though 50 devils had taken possession of her and were urg Ing her on I tell you I didnt stop to thin about the power of kindness on th brute creation II simply yelled lIu der and made for a sand gulch sea by as though a band of wild Indian- were on my trail As I r achedth gulch and dropped ten feet pr so down the steep bank digging my heels into the loose sand to stop myself that ac robotic cow sailed stralgh over my headand lit about twenty yiirds below At first I thought that she was dead but no such luck Ina oment ah got up looking foolish and dazed but very mush alive and begin shaking her head and fiercely whe the two gentlembn reached down an lifted me out as rrjuch as to say This is what Ill do to you when I get hold of you Which she didnt I hope I put in No indeed you can be precious sure that I took particular care that she didnt have another chance to get hold of me or to get back into the yard again Foran hour or so after she had hoisted herself out of the gulcn she stood outside the fence that se arated the yard from the field haking her head and pawing whenever she saw any of us at thedoors or win dews At last tpwards evening she trotted off with a zigzag Wabbe down the bank towards the creek among the willows and there she lay In ambush you might say sd that for a reek after we didnt dare to go down to make garden or do anything elfe fqr fear of having that cow descend like a wolf 1on the fold I And after that week I inquired Well fipally she grew bolder n ventured on the mesa near the rf road track where she made war on the section hands and I was warned that I must take her out of the field or they would shoot her So to prevent trtire neigbborh otlI had her killed and used herfor beef And tough eating s hut was said my host ess laughing in any case she iwas better dead than alive for there wasnt room for that cow and meyfii the same country But yoUVe been telling rue about thecow What about the heifer thought that you said that she was the cause = Dh yes The heifer was the cali dO z0 Now whether the cow disowned the calf or the calf the cow I never found- out Anyway the day that the cow disappeared into the bottom land that little calf trotted up to the house and tearfully beg ed to be loved Well you might ha e thought Id had enough of pets for one while but no the helplessness of that poor little calf so went to my cart that for weeks I rode nine mi es eevry day for milk and fed it to that little creature with mown hands leA sort of fostermother I SU- ggested Yes I was a mother to that little- orphan calf Btitif youll believe me it was a case of how sharper than a serpents tooth is an ungrateful child or however that goes Yes sir that calf followed in the evil course of its mother only if anything it was worse sort of like Agrippina and her son Nero only this was a daughter perfectlyopenwas underhanded After trotting Tmouthand come back after a few days with an ear torn and the skin raked off her side and pretty soon Id hear that shed been attacking horses or fighting other cows One day she chased an unlucky workman out onto the railroad bridge and kept him there until a train came along and the engineer slackened enough to take him on and carry him to Plum Station Another time she got rafter a tramp that was camping- on the bottom land among the willows and forced him to take refuge In the heroostedcall d off Miss Bpssle In fact the only return that calf ever made for all awaytraIaround the house just for that purpose she would have been one of the best investments I ever made But a years went by that calf became mdre abandoned to evil She would wander farther and farther from home until now h spend half my nights worrying about her and more than half the day following her up and taking her home with me I should think youd get rid of the creature I interrupted Kill her Yes I suppose that would be the most sensible thing to do but you know how it Is about al wan loving the prodigal son the most Yes sir wherever that animal goes it thoughitscnn think of it as anything but a pet calf And so tiwas bringing up that heifer that interfered with your liter ary career Interfered 1 Well I should say so Back at the start I did publish some poems in the local papers and I read ZioncqurchJlteTarie they were original No woman they said who pen her time chasing wild cows over the country could write odes to spring and essays to Shake speare liMy literary career was killed blighted in the bud And as my in come was small and I has to do
