BY JOHN DRINKWATER.
Author of "Abraham Lincoln."
IN ITS spell upon the mind, space
is strangely like time, and even
in these days of miraculous
transit an event 3000 miles away has
'much the same magical coloring for
us as an event of 500 years ago. So
that when I. an Englishman, walk
into a small thriving country town
in America and find myself talking
to people whose fathers were the
familiars of Abraham Lincoln, to
people indeed who knew Lincoln
themselves, the experience is as
moving as though I should meet a
man who speaking to me should
begin, "The iast time I saw William
Springfield, 111. It is a name that
will more and more become sacred
to American ears, more and more
will Jt evoke in the consciousness
of the world a sense of what our
struggling and so often baffled hu
man nature may become. Already
the figure that makes the place for
ever famous is becoming legendary.
And it must not be suppocsd that
the legend is essentially truth. When
a man or an tevent that have shaped
largely in the world shed, as it were,
all insignificant trimmings, when, all
the accidental qualities and occa
sions are forgotten, then emerges
the simplified characteristics that
can stand the test of time, and a
new legend is born, a new symbol
for the inspiration of mankind.
And already after a far shorter
epell than is commonly necessary,
the essential figure of Lincoln is
disengaging itself from the mass
of more or less trivial incident and
political chance that went to the
making of life. We have, in ever
sharpening outline, the story of a
man who, working till late middle
age in the quiet routine of a country
law practice, attracting but an oc
casional moment's notice beyond his
own narrow circuit, was able in his
60th year to respond to the national
call with a combination of executive
ability and spiritual singleness
hardly equaled in history.
For this it is which gives Lincoln
greatness in the world's mind. The
story of public service is one strewn
with the tragedies of men who,
while they carry themselves in their
domestic life and in the affairs of
their own private calling with
credit, when they are called to pub
lic office are not big enough for the
job and break under the strain. It
is idle to blame them; nearly all of
us who censure them would meet
with like failure. We, as they do,
would become so- absorbed in the
paper facts and generalizations of
our office table that little by little
we would lose contact with the liv
ing human factor behind these gen
eralizations, and our imaginations
would run drv. Like them, we
should little by little lose touch with
the men and women from whom we
had risen to our authority. The ne
cessity for dealing with mankind in
the aggregate would cheat us of our:
power of realizing intimately man
the Individual. There is but one manj
in many millions who has at once
the breadth of vision and the per
sonal resilience necessary to the fit
control of a state, and the chances
are always against his being chosen.
When we pass judgment against the
discredited public leader we should
do so humbly enough "There, but
for the grace of God, go I."
But when the rare man comes who
manifests great- executive power and
at the same time keeps his spirit
daily alive to direct and tender hu
man contact, he has in him the mak
ing of a legend. Such a one is Lin
coln, more completely, I think, than
any man in the western world since
Cromwell; more completely, perhaps,
than Cromwell himself, since Lin
coln had the larger serenity. And
the magical thing today is that in
the little community of Springfield
you may yet walk side by side, as it
were, with this man who is already
a legend of the world, almost taking
his hand. As I stood in the parlor
of his simple home a Portuguese
exile, returning to the scene of his
boyhood after BS years, told me that
in that far corner he had courted
His -words could have had no
sharper edge of romance had he said
that he and John Milton used to buy
their broadcloth at the same shop.
I went to see Harry Rankin, full
of eager brightness in his 80th year.
In the book of recollections that 'he
graciously gave me he wrote:
"These lines are written by the
hand that often grasped Abraham
Lincoln's." Taking the gift from
him, I seemed to lose my own reality,
to have become a figure in an old
tale, to be verily living in history.
I etood in the open space before
the Sprinerf leld courthouse, where
Lincoln used to foregather with his
. . . , m 1
ducted his cases. Trie room, now in
twilight, without the aid of Vachell
Lindsay's lovely poem, "Abraham
Lincoln Walks at Midnight," which
I had just heard from the poet's lips,
I was aware of a more than shadowy
presence at my side; the Imagination
so readily supplies the link between
yesterday and today.
And the man beside me was not
wholly the man who is so exactly re
corded in a dozen contemporary por
traits and the large anthology of
minute and exact descriptions. It
was, rather, this man crystallized
Into the essential significance of
himself, seen through the eyes of
poets who seek only central reali
ties or by the touch of a sculptor
such as St. Gaudens or Barnard,
adding symbolic truth to the confu
sion of external appearances. I was
in company with Lincoln, the legend,
the mortal man walking now in his
Immortal habit.- The old alchemy
had done its work, and man had be
corrie greater than himself Without
losing one breath of human clear
ness and intimacy in the transition.
And then I was taken out to Oak
Ridge, the little hill topped by the
great monolith that rises above Lin.
coin's tomb. Here Major Johnson,
a veteran of the Grand Armyof the
Republic, is the quiet custodian, full
of the gentle courtesy that bo often
distinguishes the old age of men who
have borne gallant parts in heroic
days. Here again was the spell. The
American civil war had been as far
off a traditional thing to me as our
own battle of Edge Hill and Flodden
Field. And now standing beside the
dust and bones that had been Lin
coln, with a man who had gone into
battle with General Grant, one who
had been under arms when word
came that Robert E. Lee had sur-
ROUGH SPLIT INDIANA LIMESTONE WITH
SAWED STONE TRIM MAKES NEAT HOME
Simple Hipped Roof Is Covered With 'SlateWide Eaves, Which Give Additional Attraction to House,
Are Formed by Extension of Roof Rafters.
' y rrrmSii'' L''n":-J Nv(
BY ANITA DI CAMPI.
THE home which is illustrated
today is decidedly small just
big enough for a family of two
or three adults who wish to enjoy
a home in the suburbs with all of
the conveniences of an apartment
in the city.
Rough split Indiana . limestone,
combined with sawed stone trim, is
used for the walls of this little
house. The simple hipped rooj is
covered with slate. Slate finished
asphalt or shingled roofing could
be- used instead of the slate if de
sired. The wide eaves, which give
additional attraction to the appear
ance of the house, are formed by an
extension of the roof rafters.
The cellar, which .accommodates a
laundry and furnace room, is under
the rear half of the house only.
There is storage room for coal and
for wood (to be used in the open
fireplace of the living room) under
the rear wing.
The good-sized front porch, which
could easily be inclosed and con
verted into a sun parlor, opens di
rectly into the livine room. There
are window on two sides. This
rendered at Appomattox, ending as
nobly as he had fought. Lincoln,
Grant, Lee, already they ring like
names out of Homer, and yet their
words seemed still to fall upon the
evening air, so soon may a legend
shape itself when tne pressure of
human affairs is acute enough.
It is but seldom that' they are, but
no moment in modern history seems
to. me to be comparable in epic qual
ity with the American civil war. The
great stories of the world are gener
ally shaped long after the events
from which ' they sprang have
passed, but in those fierce American
years, 1861-1865, the event was so
single in issue and the chief actors
so clear in personality that the dur
able outline of the story began to
shape itself in less than a genera
tion after the event had gone by.
So that now we who stood by the
tomb set in its ring of oaks, were
sensible of a fable perfecting itself
as surely in the world's mind as
that of Troy, while we were almost
at arm's length of the men whose
lives were this later Odyssey.
Returning to the town, I passed
the sites of Lincoln's law offices, in
one case the actual building. I
walked the path to which for nearly
20 years he was accustomed as he
went about the few blocks that then
stood around the courthouse and
were Springfield. Before going to
the railway terminus I walked up
to look at the building that was the
terminus in those days, and again
he was there so naturally it seemed
among the rest of the Springfield
people, strangely compounded of
yesterday and antiquity, standing
out on his car to bid farewell for
the last time to his townsmen. He
was going to the making of one of
the superb chapters of history: "My

of his country's darkest seasons.

enough, they may well h an inspi

Lincoln cannot return, but what
Lincoln was may be a hope for every
man whose mind turns to the prob

so great a renown is safe . in the
keeping of the world's heart,, every
thing pbssible should be done to
insure for the man's life story a

Already the generation that knew
the bodily presence of Lincoln has
almost gone. Fir.st hand evidence of
his habits and associations is still to
be had, and if it is sifted here and
now, records can be made which will
be pf immeasurable interest to fu
ture generations of Americans and
mankind. It is a mistake to think
that this is a thing that can be done
at any time and that there is no
hurry. In a few years it will be too
late. The surviving witnesses will
have gone, and then, when the
American nation insists that the
circumstances of Lincoln's daily life
are of lasting interest; for all
that his essential significance is In-
dependent of these, the arguments

FIRST ROSE SLIPS PLANTED
IN OREGON BY METHODISTS
Jason Lee Mission Introduced Delightful Blooms and Culture Spread
Rapidly Throughout State, Making Possible Present Abundance.
BY JUNE McMILLEN ORDWAT. .
ANT visitors are heard to ask,
How did they get the first
oses?" Many ask, "Did the
pioneers bring them from their east
ern homes?" Others are heard to
remark, "Well, it must be that-Oregon's
soil is just right for growing
The first rose slips planted in
Oregon were taken from' a bush at
Fort Vancouver, Wash., which in
turn had come from a slip brought
from the gardens of a Spanish
mission in Santiago and given to
the Hudson's Bay company, which
was established in 1825. The rose
at the time was called the "Cas
tilian rose." The rose flourished in
the soil of the Hudson's- Bay com
pany's gardens so well that soon
there were many requests from the
newcomers for the slips. Slips were
sent to Fort Nisqually, the head
quarters of the Hudson's Bay com
pany in Thurston county, Wash
ington. Erection of buildings for the
Jason Lee Methodist mission, ten
miles north of Salem, Or., was begun
in the fall of 1834. In a' short time
requests came from there for-slips
of the rose. Many pioneers were
arriving and missions and schools
were being established to assist in
improving the conditions of the
Indians as well as the. whites. All
settlers wished to get flowers grow
ing about their homes as soon as
possible. Many years afterward the
property where -the Jason Lee' mis
sion had been was sold to the late
John Minto and under his care the
"Mission rose" planted there many
years before grew to perfection and
its fragrance was very sweet.
In 1854 reports of the growth of
the rose from many localities in
Oregon, as well as Washington,
were so favorable that the name
was changed to the "Miss-ion rose.;'

moderate in size, they are so ar

furniture may be conveniently

of waste space in the whole house.
A large trap door in the ceiling
of the hall leads to the attic. This
attic space may be used for a place
of storage for trunks and other
articles which are not in general

the ladder in the rear closet could

foot lot, but a 50-foot lot would be
better- in case a driveway is to be

A small and carefully selected
committee of Springfield citizens,
with perhaps one or two Americans i
from outside the city, should be I
formed at once to examine every j
piece of first-hand evidence avail

on formal record and every building
or landmark that Is shown to be in-
contestably associated with Lincoln
should be marked with a tablet and
as far as possible preserved as i
a national memorial.
The risks attending this matter)
are real and immediate. Already, for ;
example, I found differences of opin
ion between well-informed people in
the town as to where Lincoln's vari
ous law offices were. The site of but
one of the three is marked and it
was only by appealing to Mr. Rankin
that the matter was settled. This in
dicates the kind of thing that may,
and unless some practical steps are
taken at once, certainly will hap
pen. I would not give the impres
sion that his own town is deficient
in interest in Lincoln; far from it.
There is an abundance-of the most
loving care, and I am sure that
once the idea took root there would
be no lack of enthusiasm or judg
ment to i make the already consid
erable records complete.
The legend of Lincoln is secure;
its beauty and its meaning for the
world will grow from age to ag

The Cardwells and Mr. Biddle
brought many varieties from Illi

favorites. Mr. Biddle introduced a
rose called "Chinese Daly." The
people became interested in the cul

undertaking was just in its infancy,

decoration. ' At that early date

The following extract from Emanuel
Lasker's book on the great Capablanca
versus Lasker match is what attracted
our attention when reading over quite
a symposium from the American chess
bulletin: "Of oourse, chess is not going
to remain problematical much longer.
The old game approaches ita hour of
destiny. Chess in its present form will
die soon of the draws. The victory of
certainty and mechanism. Inevitable as
it is. is going to seal the fate of chess.
Then you will have to invent new rules.
Perhaps you will have to change the
setting of the pieces, and modify the
gradations of win or lose in order to
increase difficulties and create new mys
teries. For you can not afford to let
the old game die." The editor haa heard
it said by chess players that the draws
which are so numerous among good
rhOTlrr nliivers is death to the game:
but at no time in the history of checkers
is It or has it been more popular than
it is today. The magazines, books and
columns published during the past year
and the numerous conventions, organized
associations, confute any argument as
introduced by Mr. Lasker. These facts
are also chess facts, for chess clubs have
multiplied rapidly not only in this coun
try butforeign countries, and new clubs
are being formed every month of the

is unsound, that at the sixth move in
stead of 18-23, play 31-26. Look ii over.
How often one wrong move busts the
finest looking combination and it is a
total wreck, checkers we mean, not
characters. How often one move at a
critical staga in a game has won a
hard-fought checker battle. The key
move to some combination la very hard
to find. Impossible to make star moves
all the time, some are brilliant:- some are
plodders. Without a checker education
lt is impossible to win against those
who have lt. Stndy and play a game
