stand alone ro ancestors, ne
feilrws and no successors.; He
,. knew and mingled with men of '
very ki ndi and, after all, men
are the best bocks.
Lincoln never finished his edu

death he was. a pupil, a learner,
, an inquirer, a seeker after

' Lincoln was a many sided man,
acquainted with smiles and
tears, complax in brain, single
Irt heart, direct as Vt-'..i, and hia
words, candid as mirrors, gave
the perfect image of hia thought.
He was never afraid to ask,
never too dignified to admit that
he did not know. No man had
keener .wit cr-kinder humor.
He was no, solemn. ; Solemnity
is a mask worn by ignorance
and hypocrisy. It is the preface,
prologue and index to the cun- '
ring or the stupid. He was net- ;
ural in hia . life and thought,
master of the story teller's art,
in application perfect, liberal in
speech, (shocking Pharisee and :
prudes, using any word that wit ,
could disinfect. -.,' :V.
He was an orator clear, sin-J
eere, natural. - He did not pre 4 ;
tend. He did not aay what hs
thought ethers , thought, but
what he thought. -
If you wiah to know the dif
ference between an orator and ah
elocutionist, between what is
felt and what is said, between
what the heart and brain can do
together and what the brain can "
de alone, read Lincoln's won
drous words at Gettysburg' and '
then the speech , of Edward
Everett. The oration of Lincoln I
will never be forgotten.' It will f
live until languages are dead
end lipe are, dust" The speech;'
of Everett will never be read,
- Lincoln was an immense per-V
tonality firm, but not obstinatej
Obstinacy ia egotiam firmnew,
heroism. He influenced others
without effort, uncsnsciously,, .
and they submitted to him as
men submit to nature, uneon- -
tc'rurly. He was severe with
himstlf and fur that reason
lenicr.t w!th others. Ha appear
cd ta aa'ogiie for being kinder ,
than his feCswi. He did merci-
ful thin;-, at stealthily ai others
He knrv others because psr
ffctl acquainted with himself.
Hi car r.sthinj for place, but:

Ha kn;w neither tyrant nor

neither greet nor small they
were richt or wrong. Through
manners, clovhea, titles, rags
and rac? he taw the real that
which , it. Beyond accident,
policy, compromise and war he
try th? cr.d. '
He was patisnt as destiny,
whose undecipherable hiero
glyph! were so deeply graven
on hit tr.d and tragic face. :
It ia tho glory of Lincoln that,
having almost absolute power,
ho never a'rutid it except on the
sidi of r;rcy. ; , ; '-',::
Wealth could not purchase,
