Big Hat the Smart Girl Pours Tea BRIDES CARRY FLOWER MUFFS What the Gotham Shops Are Showing In Spring and Summer Dress Material Milady Now Wears a Watch on Her Gloved Finger My Dear Elsa 1ui worn to a frazzle over this jig saw puzzle fad urent you Here in New York were abso lutely going mad about the putting together of these picture puzzles And not only are our brains turned upside down with wondering whether a certain little jagged piece of wood fits In here there or somewhere else but we are hounded on all sides by friends who are making these puzzles for char ityutosqve all the colored covers of the magazines for them So high runs the craze that a floor of one of the erstwhile fashionable old houses on Washington square north has be come a jig saw factory boasting a staff of twenty or more workmen many of whom are art students at Cooper Institute and the league Yes my dear from the maid in the kitchen to the master in the library WATCH WORN OVKB MTLADlS GLOVE weve all caught the germ and it only remained for the man who Invented the puzzle picture of different colored woods to drive us all to padded cells Well I made up my mind that it was time something was doing to turn the jig saw tide And Ive done it sure enough by giving yesterday after noon a tangram party A super abundance of egotism is not one of my glaring faults I have been told but at this moment Im really gloating over my cleverness in reviving the cu rious and interesting pastime of dally ing with tangrams Is it a new variety of imported fruit No Miss Innocence but it is the fruit of a Chinamans brains one Tan who lived awhile ago say some 4000 years before we became inhabitants of this glorious country And to this oriental ancestor its de sc endant the jig saw owes much of its tame Unlike the present puzzle the tangram consists of only seven pieces and these parts are all the same size Artistic values are completely lost sightof in the struggle for entiretyThe that I set before my guests was The House That Jack Built and that the cat was as big as the cow and the malt as large as the house that contained it matters nothing to the architects After the tangrams we had tea and Elinor poured for me looking a Rembrandt study in a stunning big black velvet hat charmingly trimmed with bunches of silver raisinsnothing else and the chicness of the thing beggars description You have read of almost every known variety of fruit flowers and birds which have found their way into the milliners hands but I reckon you didnt know that these artists had forsaken the garden andthe menagerie for the realm of the cook Youll par don me but it is such a temptation to say that the raison detre of this is cpmefromWhy dIdshe wear a hat while ing tea Simply and solely because its the latest accompaniment to the 5 oclock It was a funny sight watching the girls dodge that chapeau for those wishing a cup of the refresh ing beverage had to navigate around this cart wheel first to catch the eye of the wearer and then stand at a safe distance when receiving the brew for to disarrange that millinery creation which had been poised and pinned at a fascinating anglean operation we all know takes this season many precious momentsis possible by the lightest touch against the overshadow ing brim Fortunately there were no tempests in our teacups TheHap proach and tackles were splendidly done But one can imagine that at a crush affair such disasters can be averted only by the most careful en gineering of ones own hat and el bows And be it known that apolo gies afterward are no reparation for the catastrophe Elizabeth C who inquired most so licitously after you was wearing one of the smartest gowns of the after noon an empire confection of taupe chiffon cloth that shone like heavy satin The embroideries on the skirt were exquisitely worked In taupe toneg with silks wools and chenille Similar embroideries formed a bolero and the waist was confined by a folded band of black satin Her hat was large and fiat and the crown was entirely ot sa ble with an important looking black osprey standing out at one side An2 other girl from Boston who came with Mrs Van S I thought was carrying hand bound book after the manner of Bostonian highbrows who appear with literary equipments on all and every occasion but I suffered from an optical delusion for the lady from the knd of beans was carrying a suede aceeeeoryitsAnd this mull reminds me that at one of the prettiest weddings of the t n winter solemnized at St Bartholo mews the blushing bride hid her trem bling 1 hands in a floral muff of orchids with thousand of sprays pf lily ofthe valley hanging On white satin ribbons like tails on the regulation street muff The affect was deli cate and lovely The church was pack ed but there is one thing to be said in favor of the machine turned newel post figure sans chapeau and that Is a lot of them may be squeezed in at a function without the discomfort and the pushing and shoving of former years As Carolyn Wells saysand by the way dont you love her hits at feminine foibles speaking of the modern damosels silhouette So slim was she that looking sideward to ward you scarcely saw anything And at a bridge the other night these lines of hers kept repeating them selves Her sleeves were such a fit And though at brldgeshe took a hand She stoodshe couldnt sit Which reminds me that a new wrinkle in sleeves is to have chenille fringe meandering from shoulder to elbow so that when the arm Is lifted one gets quite a Mexican cowboy effect With the cowboy sleeves and the Robinson Crusoe fur turban all that Is needed to finish the wild west picture is the Deadwood coach We dont indulge in coach holdups these days but on Broadway the other morning an ele pliant escaped from the Hippodrome and afforded a good imitation of the olden days- I do wish you were here in town to go through the shops and see the dis play of advanced spring materials They are too lovely for words The silks and cachemire de sole a fabric we will see a great deal of the coming soason are charming And French crape that we all have admired from a distance on account of its prohibitive price is now within reach of those of us who have been obliged to econo mize since the financial slump of last year The favorite designs in wash goods are in dotted effects both in printed and embroidered dots and disks and borders are still a smart finish Piques and linens are both to figure largely in the summer ward robe says my dressmaker and many of the most expensive piques are in scUd colors and in printed Persian pat terns In my journey through one of the most exclusive shops here in town I was delighted to see stunning designs In foulard among the showings I never could put through a summer comfortably without two or three of these little silk frocks and it was pleasant to find that we have returned to small figures and scroll patterns in two toned effects To quote a most courteous clerk The colors that prom ise to lead for spring are wood rose wistaria catawba amethyst mulberry and dull rose There now Didnt I remember it all beautifully for your sweet sake But to gossip some more I met Mrs D at the lace counter and as she picked over the embroideries in her fussy fashion I noticed that she was wearing one of the new finger watches that are worn outside the glove on the third finger of the left hand These timepieces are the tiniest things you ever sew and are mounted on plain gold finger bands You have Vivid recollections of the impishness of her small son John havent you Well last Sunday he was wriggling around in the family pew as usual As you know our rec tor is a relic of the long winded school of theology and Johns patience reach ed the

fHESUNUAY SCHOOU Lesson VFirstQuarter For Jan 31 1909 THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES Text of the Lesson Act iv 131 Mem ory Verses 11 12 Golden Text Acts iv 31Commentary Prepared by Rev D M Stearns Copyright by American Press Association As the gospel Is preached and wher ever it is preached during the whole of this age we can only expect the ex perience of Paul in chapter xxvill 24 Some believed and some believed not Some are wholly Indifferent and care for none of these things while others violently oppose the truth The comfort of the cliever through it all is that His wore will always accom plish His pleasure and that He is never discouraged Isa Iv 11 xlii 4 The resurrection of Jesus was accompanied by the resurrection of many of the saints Matt xxvii 02 53 and both His and theirs were resurrections from the dead So also shall be the resurrection of all the righteous We now find Annas and Caiaphas and their kindred with tLe rulers and eld ers and scribes gathered at Jerusa led to Inquire more fully concerning the healing of the man wlo had been lame from his birth for all the city was stirred because of the notable miracle that had been wrought which no one could deny verse 16 Peter and John being brought from prison this august assembly asked them By what power or by what name have ye done this This gives Peter another opportunity end he who at one time asked the Lord Jesus not to think of suffering and on that dreadful night three times denied that he knew Him boldly rehearses the facts of the cruci fixion of Jesus by these very men as serts His resurrection from the dead and assures them that the healing of this man was by that same Jesus He quotes Ps cxvili 22 and has In mind Isa xxviii 16 which passages he also quotes in his epistle I Pet ii 48 He Is bold because filled with the Spirit and the Spirit brings these words to his mind and utters them through him according to the promises of the Lord Jesus while He was yet with them in His humiliation Matt x 19 20 John xiv 26 It Is grand to hear Peter tell these proud Pharisees that there is no other way for even them to be saved but by Him whom they had crucified whom God raised from the dead They must have remembered the meek fear lessness of Jesus when He stood be fore them for they see something in these men to remind them of Jesus verse 13 It should be our ambition so to be Spirit filled that those who know us would be compelled to see something of Him in us 01 Cor iv 11 While they could not deny the miracle nor the strange power in these un learned men they determined to do what was In their power as they thought to prevent the spread of this doctrine and so after consulting among themselves the apOstles having been sent out they recall them and command them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus verse 18 One cannot but think of the words in the second psalm He that sitteth In the heavens shall laugh the Lord shall have them in derision As they were men professing to fear God these priests and rulers Peter replixT that they must judge for themselves wheth er it was right to obey Gcd or man but boldly yet respectfully added We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard verse 20 What a contrast between these men and the majority of believers today who seem to have seen in Jesus noth ing worth mentioning to any one for both in public and private they can so rapidly keep quiet about Him Con sider Ellhu and Jeremiah who were much like Peter and John Job xxxii 1820 Jer xx 9 With further threatenings they were let go and at once went to their own company who had doubtless been In prayer for them They reported all that had been said and done and with one accord these believers looked up to God as the Creator and quoted the words of the second psaln and rest ing in the eternal counsel of God prayed not for deliverance from fur ther persecution but only that they might speak the wed of God with boldness and that God would accom pany the word with signs and won ders in the name of Jesus They evi dently feared no man nor even death but by faith saw the risen Christ at Gods right hand for them and de sired only to glorify Him They were certainly in touch with the throne for see the immediate response from thence the place was shaken and all were filled with the Holy Spirit There never was greater need than now for believers to be fined witb the word of God and the Spirit of God and to speak that word boldly It can only be done by seeing the risen Christ at Gods right hand on our behalf and by so seeing Him that we jshsll not

POINT Put Through a Resolution Recpm rnending Public Ownership of- s Wealth Producing Agencies of the CountryAnother Effort to Put the Convention On Record In Favor oft Independent Labor Party Fails Indianapolis Jan 29The conven tion of the United Mine Workers of America adopted a resolution on be helf of Christian Rudowitz and Jan Pouren Russian refugees in this country whose cases have been considered lately by the state department on extradition proceedings on the part of the Russian government The resolution further demands the abrogation of the treaty which provides for the extradition of persons charged with offenses against a na tion where persons so charged are not to be tried by a jury of their peers This resolution is intended also to apply to Mexican refugees Seeing across the Rio Grande to escape prosecution resulting from labor troubles in that country Another effort made to put the con vention on record as favoring the institution of an independent labor party failed This and similar measures have come from unions that are not socialistic in their views but nevertheless feel that as neither of the old parties will take action on the part of the laboring class as against the capitalist class there should be organized a new party for this purpose The Socialists of which there are about 300 in the con vention oppose this policy as antagonistic to their already established party A resolution recommending that the union miners should be active in politics and try to nave elected to state legislatures and to Congress men whose sympathies are publicly known to be with the working class was enthusiastically adopted While care is taken by the miners leaders that the organization shall not take definitely a socialistic course and a resolution for govern ment ownership of coal mines has- been defeated nevertheless the So cialists have been successful in put t ting through a resolution recommend ing a public ownership of the wealth producing agencies of the country which are now in control of the predatory richt and that there should be a social reorganization to the effect that eacn man should receive the equivalent of the labor that he gives- to the community This resolution- was adopted without a dissenting voice It is authoritatively announced by friends of Thomas L Lewis president of the United Mine Workers of America that the count of the bal lots has proceeded far enough to show that he has been reelected by a ma jority of between 15000 and 20000 over his opponent John Walker of Illinois THIS IS CARNATION DAY McKinleys

Washington Jan 29Even a sec ond veto message has not convinced members of the house committee on interstate and foreign commerce of the entire wisdom of the presidents views on the granting of dam privileges on waters under the control of the united States and as a result it is almost certain that there will be no remedial legislation at this con gress The main point of difference between members of congress and the executive arises out of the presidents proposal to tax the party constructing the dam for that privilege While the committee seems willing to agree to a license fee it hesitates to concede to the desirability and the constitutionality of an annual tax upon the use of the waters BEST SKATERS IN MEET International Championship In City of PIttsburg Tonight Pittsburg

Banker In Testimony Btr fore Senate Judiciary Committee Describes Panicky Conditions Iff New York During Fall of 190 Steel Corporation Exchanged Bonds For Stock In Tennessee Concern and Fears of Public Set at Rest Washington Jan l0LThe testi mony of George W Perkins manage of the banking house of J P Morgain Company before the executive sew sion of the subcommittee of the set ate judiciary committee that is rro2 ing the absorption of the Tennessee Coal Iron company by the United States Steel corporation was in th main a substantiation of the facts in S fch the case as presented to congress by President Roosevelt In a special mes sage In describing conditions in Nejr York financial circles following the panic of 1907 Mr Perkins said there was a general Reeling which it would be difficult for anyone to express in a concrete statement thatif the Ten nessee Coal Iron stock were taken out of various loans some way it would prevent a great many faijures and avert a further spread of the panic Continuing he said Of course at that time most every one in New York was using theic re sources in every direction to allay the panic and some meIdont know that t know whomade a suggestion that the steel corporation wag the one that might take these particular securities and relieve that part of the situation Finally some one made a suggestion which afterwards worked out that the corporation might furnish its 5 per cent Second mortgage bonds in lieu of cash and in thisrway put in lieu of these loans securities that were marketable Mr Perkins said there wasa great deal of reluctance on IhVpartoltho stdbi corporation to take the Tennes see company property He said the steel company considered the price very high and that ttiere might bea great deal of criticism as to their right to take the property Mr Per kins told also ofihe visit to Washing ton of Judge E H Gary and Henry C Frick for the purpose of seeing the president Practically everything was at a standstill until we got word from Washington as to what seemedto be the feeling there continued Mr Per kins That was telephoned to me by Judge Gary abut 10 oclock on Monday bout the time the market opened and the news that this trans action probably would be made was given out and had an instantaneous effect for the better on the market and I have always believed toPped the panic At any rate from that tfme forth matters righted them selves and we were met with ito fur ther serious depressions It was asserted by Mr Perkins thaI there had never been any intention on the part of thesel corporation of acquiring tie Tennessee Coalk Iron company jHe said f the transaction was carried out with butpnelurpb e In view namely to allathe unset tied conditlom that exfstfed t that time Responding to fqueatlons by Chairman Clark as to the effect of exchanging steel bonds for the stock of the Tennessee company Mr per- kins said Whether or not the steel bonds were intrinsically any better than the Tennessee Coal Iron stock was not so much the question as it was that the public tnought they were He explained that these bonds by reason of the public con fidence were convertible into cash Oakleigh Thorne president pf the Trust COIppany of America was voluntary witness before the committee his testimony being to the elfect that his company was not interested as owner in any stock of the Tennes

He was long and lank narrow in the chest with sloping shoulders Even life oi the plains could not eradicate th scholarly droop His trousers were black and they bagged at the knees When riding his trousers would wcrl up about his calves showing a whit expanse of white socks For corn Tor he wore an alpaca coat which hrV loosely about him and for the dignity of his profession the only boiled shirt in the county with a frayed collar and white string tie The Rev Mr Price was liked by the settlers He ucrer inter fered with what they considered their relaxations and he had the saving grace of humorThe wer- eperforming a scalp dance about the table when he entered nt The Rev Samuel thesis was beatPrtecing a bucket with a gourd and emitting strange cries with each thump T noise and shouts confused the minis ter As he was blundering among tlo dancers they fell upon him with wr whoops slapping him on the back ant crushing his straw hat over hs ears Slim was the first to recognize tiu minister He dashed into the group and swinging several aside cried tithe others to desist Pardon me but do I intrude upon n scalp dance smilingly asked the par1 sonYou sure have Mr Price laughe Slim We haint got to the scalpln part yet but were flxiu to dance off Paysons scalp tonight Peering at him with nearsighted eyes Mr Price extended his hand saying Ah Mr Hoover our sheriff is it not V ISlim wrung the parsons hand until the preacher winced Hiding his discomfort he slowly straightened out his fingers with a painful grin Slim had not noticed that he had hurt the grcetIing bpIcauseIs Parenthesis Mr Price looked at the awkwardly bowing cowboy in amazement The name was a puzzle to him He could not grasp the application The editor of the Kicker explained Slim called him that because of his legs bein built that way Mr Price was forced trf smile in spite of his efforts to be po lite The editor had grasped the most striking feature of the punchers phys ical characteristics for a label Parenthesis beamed on the minister I was born on horseback he replied That fellow there with a front tooth Is Show Low began Slim speaking like a lecturer in a freak show The one without a front tooth is Fresno a California product This here chap with the water dob hair is Sagebrush Charley It makes him sore when you call him plain Charles Charley bein a Chink name sup plemented its owner Silence fell over the group for they did not know what was the proper thing to do next A minister was to be respected and not to be made one of them He must take the lead In the conversation Mr Price was at a loss to begin He had not recovered fully from the roughness of his wel come so Slim took the lead again I heard you preach once up to FIr ence1 he annpaSced to the profound agtonishmeutlpf his hearers y Indeed politely responded Mr Price feeling the futility of making any further observation He feared to Pail into some trap The inswers made by the boys did not seem to fit par ticularly well with what be expected and was r accustomed to The parson could not make out whether the boys were joking with him or whether their replies were unconscious humor on their part fYepj I lost an election bet an had to go to jchurch answered Slim in all seriousness The cowboys laughed and Mr Price lamely replied Oh yes I see It was a good show continued Slim doing his best to appear at ease The frantic corrections of his compan ions only made him flounder about the more Excuse me he apologized I mean that 1 enjoyed it Do you recall the subject of my discourse inquired Mr Price coming to his assistance Your what course asked Slim My sermon answered the parson Well I should say yes replied the sheriff greatly relieved to think that he was once more out of deep water un was about some Shorthorn that jumped the home corral to maverick around loose in the alfalfa with c bunch of wild ones The explanation was too much for Mr Price Great student of the Bible that he had been here was one lesson which he had not studied As told by SUm he could not recall any text or series of texts from which he might have drawn similes fitted for his cow boy congregation when he had one Really I he began Slim however was not to be Interrupted If he stopped he never could begin again he felt Waving to llic preacher to be silent he continued L i description When his wad was goi the bunch threw him down an he hat to bIke for the sagebrush an feed with the hogs on husks an seen like winter fodder The minister caught the word husks Slim was repeating his own version of the parable of the prodigal sou Husks Oh the prodigal son smiled Price TImes hImH Slim sighed with re lief This here feed not bein up to grade Prod he lows hed pull his freight back home square himself with the old man an start a new deal Sagebrush was deeply interested in the story Its charm had attracted him as it had scholars and outcasts like since first told 2000 years ago on the plains of old Judea Did he stand for it he interrupted- He sure did eloquently replied Slim who was surprised and delighted with the great impression he was mak ing with his experience at church Oh he was a game old buckhe was Why the minute he sighted that there pro digious son alimpin across the mesa he run right out an fellon his neck An broke it cried Fresno slapping Sagebrush with his hat in his delight at getting at the climax of the story before Slim reached it The narrator cast a glance orsu preme disgust at the laughing puncher No he shouted he hugged him Then he called In the neighbors barbecued a yearlin calf an give a barn dance with fireworks in the evenin Thats all right in books observed Sagebrush but if Id made a break like that when I was a kid my old man would a fell on my neck for fair That was a good story parson Its straight aint it asked Slim as a wave of doubt swept over him Its gospel truth answered the minister Do you know the moral of the story Sure replied Slim With a confi dence born of deep self assurance Slim launched the answer Dont be a fat ted calf At first his hearers did not grasp the full force of the misapplication of the parable Mr Price could not refrain from laughing The others joined with him when the humor of the reply dawned upon them Pointing scornful ly at the fat sheriff they shouted glee fully while Slim blushed through hi tan Now if youll kindly show me where began Mr Price Sure All the liquors in the kitch en said Sagebrush expanding with hospitalitySlim Sagebrush back into his chair and Parenthesis tapped the min Ister on the shoulder to distract his at tention Thanks I meant to ask for a place to change my clothes i 7 To be Continued v IThO Much t Goodst i Too Little Money In order to equalize them we will for a while put our t stock

highway engineer in Minnesota Last spring he made a section of road with clover and rye on a sand foundation This has been very successful The road made from sand and sawdust is fat Cambridge in Isanti county Minn Four inches of sawdust were raked on the sand road after being graded This was worked into the sand by werefthe ruts to be further mixed with sand This Is a new roadmaking ma terial and if successful will make an exceedingly profitable means of using the immense quantities of sawdust from the mills of the state In those counties where there is nothing but sand in the roads good roads are impossible without the addi tion of other material Mr Cooley Is now experimenting with various flmeans of turning the sand into vegetable loam which can be worked to advantage The Idea is that the saw dust will rot and mixing with the sand will form a loam suitable for making good roads with Such a small amount of money Is appropriated by the state for the construction of roads that the experi mfents have been oria limited scale and the construction of roads proceeds slowly Minnesota spends only one doesNewthe property BETTER WINTER ROADS The Best Time to Do Good Work With the Drag soon as summer is over and the IAs begins to freeze the farmer thefaithful road drag barnyard where It remains the entire winter unused observei lieve if farmers will closely conditions they will see that road dragging will give us much better roads at the time they are usually the worst says M A Coverdell In Farm and Fireside The surface of the ground thaws many times during the winter season and when It begins to freeze again along some time in the afternoon or evening the little bumps of lirt and the clods are neither too sloppy nor too hard but just brittle enough to smooth down nicely filling up the ruts and low places This is the one and tUlly time during the day that you can flo good work with the drag so keep your eye on the thawing and freezing dragBingsight and an hours

of Democ racy and Its Preserver Freeing the Slaves J It N v OW he belongs to the said Secretary agesI mediately after Lincoln breathed his last Of one or two souls a century such thing can truthfully be said The ages are so mercilessor is it merci fulin forgetting that it takes a very large man a human mountain peak to be seen by all countries and all times Was Lincoln such a mountain peak We are too close to him even yet to say but everything would point him a place among earths immortals Men love liberators because they love liberty they love mercy and truth even though they do not practice theI one nor follow the other Most men belIeve in democracy and all men will do so before the end of another century All human beings admire un elf lshne sat least in other people Lin coln was a liberator just as he was anI embodiment of mercy and truth democracy and unselfishness He had that kindly simplicity which makes universal appeal He rang true at every point Even his faults were soI far from the petty and the mean and were so human that they make us love him Above all he rendered high service to the race He died for man All of these things are of the quality that endures From my own view point there is no American who has more that will endear him to the heart of the world in all lands and times than Abraham Lincoln Love outlives all else and his love for humanity was so large it is not to be wondered at that humanitys love Is large for him We get what we give As we do to others so are we done by Abraham Lincoln truly belongs to the ages His growing fame through the forty and more years that have passed since Secretary Stanton utter ed the sentence confirms its truth The long I l given l celebration of the centenary of birth is but an earnest of like celebrations that are to come His whole life was a confirmation of the success of democracy He was Its child and its Democracy is to be the force in this world and one so intimately linked with it must share its immortality Just as Lincoln to the gesIso do his acts as president belo history With TVC will leave them This series of articles is not an at history not even an effort at biography After all the histories of that time that have ben written and all the biographies of its chief figure either attempt would be pre sumptuous The only hope of the writer Is to find soul and It to the world I am to get at the of the man the funda mentals the this that differentiate him from all other characters in his tory A mere recite of his acts or his public papers w ouid not serve this pur pose even if the public did not tnow them by heart Here and there however is a itnl and salient thing which gives a cle v to his tpughinsue the emancipation proclamation SUCh Is his high statesmanship in the llason and Slidell affair Such Is the J1e cybe showed to condemned sol fllers Such is the serene manner t i a t Yy By James A Edgerton 1009 by the American Press which he conducted the canvass for a second term Such are the Gettysburg speech and the second inaugural In all these things the mans mind work ed true and its for the most part are perfectly clear There is one other illuminative and characteristic thingmany more in fact but one otIthings he did in way They are Lincolnian The act he has been most lauded for of course and will be most lauded for in future is the emancipa tion proclamation I am not at all amfin regarding the saving of the Union as the paramount thing compared with which the of the negro was subsidiary and only to be considered in so far as it contributed to the other ownIand over again The freeing of the chattel slaves was a great act The freeing of wage notIkindsItea has given and is giving to the HerIracy to all nations and to all slaves byIprecedent not for this work and for other importblack slaves It Is Impossible to ofIwas necessary to the preservation of the republic Lincoln himself pointed this out when he said the na He prepared proclamation before it was universal Lincolns preserver greatest belongs history attempt Lincolns picture seeking essentials already character Copyright Association processes hisown doubtless liberation salvation however separate slavery the out tion could not endure half slave and half free The abolitionists of the country Were shocked at the presidents treatment of Fremont and other generals who liberated the slaves in their terri tory Greeley attacked him bitterly as did other smaller hammer wielders throughout the land The presidents only reply was that he was striving to save the Union and did not believe the coniributedwas one which must be settled by the commander in chief himself and not by generals Frankly to me this was the one weak point in Lincolns career Slav ery was the cancer spot that caused the secession disease The sooner it was cut out the better A bold and swift policy was the one needed Moreover the reservation of this whole question of emancipation for himself somehow does not look quite the high est attitude It seems to me that right here he lacked faithfaith in God and faith in the rectitude of the people He knew em ncip fiR wall rlght He should have rested his case ire and left mfc Jsast a little Of the responsi bility for results to the Most High There are many things to be said la extenuation however The great balk 9f northern soldiers were Union men tatHtlcrf4 r was done to the Qlvlne institution Lincoln was hedged about by cautious counselors Even as it was he pre pared the proclamation long before it was given out being held back at the advice of Seward Above all else Lin coIn was on the ground and knew what was heeded It is hardly fair to judge him at this distance Sere is sober truth however Up to the time the emancipation proclama tion went into effect the Union victo ries had been few and slight Within eight months thereafter occurred the twin successes at Vicksburg and Gettysburg which decided the fate of the moralforeesThe long and agonizing struggles through which President Lincoln pass ed in the early defeats of the war in the death of his little son in the mis understandings and abuse from the abolitionists and others on his own side of the struggle and his own mental conflict in arriving at a determina tion to liberate the slaves made the first years of the war a veritable Geth semane That he long contemplated emancipation as soon as the proper hour arrived was shown by interviews with various friends It is suggested that the defeats and his private grief had much to do with forcing him tc take this supreme step Through the wilderness of sorrow God leads us to many promised lands When emancipation came the fear of the timid concerning its disastrous effects on the northern cause were seen to be groundless Events went on as before But on the 4th of July following came the events which wrote this latest decree of freedom into tie permanent law forever The war dragged on after Gettysburg but It wm only a shell Its spirit which wan breathed into It by the Confeder acys hope died on that field The attitude of both Lincoln and Seward in the Mason and Slidell affali was statesmanlike in the highest de gree It won the gOlden opinions not only of Englishmen but of all Euro peans It was assumed in the face of universal clamor An act of that sort shows the highest courage The frank admission of the wrong done and the real principle involved that of the right of search which we ourselves had denied made the act unique in di plomacy a shining example for other lands to follow Lincolns manner of conducting his campaign for a second term consisted in making no campaign at all He knew Secretary Chase was a candi date and yet did not resent It nor would he ask for Chases resignation There Is no doubt that Lincoln want ed the vindication of a renominatlon and reelection There is no question that there were times when he felt doubtful of the outcome though usual ly buoyed up bya serene faith Yet he did little or nothing for himself and let his enemies conspire against him unchecked That he won out shows once more that the invisible moral forces have more to do with running this world than they get credit for After all however the best part of Lincoln rests on such sentiments as are shown in his Gettysburg speech his second inaugural address with its charity for all and malice toward none in his pardons for military pris oners and In his large heartedness re vealed in a thousand different ways His tenderness for the weak his sym pathy for distress his patience and uncomplaining endurance his lack of censure for others all these things have touched the worlds heart and have engendered a feeling of personal love for Lincoln such as has seldom been witnessed In modern times The Gettysburg address and second inaugural werePresident Lincolns chief contributions to the literature of the world In many respects they are alike Both came near the end of his life when his great and trying work was almost at an end Both are ex tremely brief the briefest great ora tions on record Both are exceedingly simple stating fundamental and primary propositions that everybody knew and yet giving them a meaning so true and so final that it must become the verdict of the ages The Gettysburg address laid down the simple principle that the battle occurring on that field had been fought for the preservation of human equal ity and popular government Gettysburg was one more triumph for the Declaration of Independence Tie sec ond inaugural took up another pose of the same theme The war had come because of slavery Liberty had won the victory It was in Gods purpose that one man should no longer eat his bread in the sweat of another mans face If Lincoln was right and Gods purpose remains now as it was then we have some more reckonings on that score for there is still tyranny and those who produce are yet de priced of their own The crowning glory of the second inaugural how ever is its magnanimity The battle having been won there was nothing but mercy for the conquered The spirit of the ysburgtiddress is democracy that of the second Inau gural is love One of the war presidents most marked characteristics was lack of lit tleness spite or animosity The large ness of his nature was shown by the selection of his cabinet In this were placed the rival candidates for the presidency lii his own party At least two of these men thought they would run the president They were never rebuked for thinking so but gradually awakened from their trance on discov eying that the president had about ass emphatic a way as any man In our history of running himself Seward wtfs big enough to see it in a few months when he wrote that tIle
