AT THE ECHO REGISTER OFFICE
marvel is the great American
Republic. It is to our nation
that the eyes of the world are
turned in wonder and admiration.
This noble young republic of the
west stands out, the envy of her
sister nations and the pride of
hei loyal subjects. Yes, young
ii. years, but old in advancement.
It is but a little more than one
hundred years since the birth of
our nation as a republic, little
more than one hundred years
since those first few seeds which
were to spring up and bear the
great Ainercan republic were
scattered on the rocky shore of
our New England coast, and yet
our nation has made far greater
advancement during these few
short years than ever Egypt
could boast of during the whole
three thousand years of her ex
istence. When we stop to con
sider this rapid progress, we
can but exclaim, wonderful, mar
velous, indeed has been that
growth. It is not necessary to
go farther back in the history
of our nation than the year
020, wh n the inception of that
sturdy life and genius builded,
broad and deep, the foundation
upon which this great nation has
attained to her great glory.
Small indeed were the begin
nings but the growth and great
ness are marvelous. Nature
had prepared this land ages ago
to be the home of civil and re-
igious liberty. Here fountains
of oil were prepared and forests
planted. Over our broad land
stretched level prairies and fer
tile valleys. Seemingly useless
mountain torrents rushing un
noticed to the sea have been
controlled and furnish an unlim
ited water supply for irrigation
which has transformed millions
of acres of absolutely worthless
and into beautiful orchards and
fields of waving grain. Our
country is rich in mines of silver
and gold, lead, iron copper and
coal. Whether we regard her
cataracts, rivers, lakef, fc rests
or plains, she is distinguished by
a vastness unapproached in any
other part of the globe.
Stretching from regions almost
arctic on the north to regions as
nearly torrid on the south, from
the storm washed shores of the
Atlantic to the placid waters of
Pacific, yea, even to the distant
isles of the sea, with the Great
Lakes on the north, and the
Mississippi flowing through its
very heart, with a coast line
equal to the entire circumference
of the globe, our nation has op
port unities for commerce which
no nation existing or that ever
did exist can boast of. These
opportunities hav d not been ne
glected for .our nag is seen on
every sea, our snips in every
foreign harbor, where our pro
ducts are eagerly sought by the
hungry hordes of Europe.
Dut perhaps in no other way
has our country had a more mar
velous development than along
the line of inventions and im
provements in the means of
transportation. During the last
50 years the United States has
led the world in the matter of
inventions. Time will permit
me to mention only a few of the
most important. Benjamin
Franklin invented the lightning
rod before the revolution. In
1794 Eli Whitney invented the
cotton gin which revolutionized
the cotton growing and bad it
effect on the slavery question.
first of the great family of labor
saving machines invented in this
couhtry. The reaper, mower,
threshing machine and many
other agricultura' implements,
al' the result of American in
ventive genius have revolution
ized farm work and enable one
man to do the work which re
quired many men much hard
labor and produced at best only
moderate results. The sewing
machine, the telegraph, the tele
phone, the phonograph and the
typewriter are other inventions
which have exerted a great in
fluence on human life. It may
seem like a rather broad state
ment but it is nevertheless true
that more inventions have been
made by Americans during the
lifetime of people now living
than in all the age of the world
before. Eighty years ago there
were but twenty-three miles of
railroad in the United States.
Fifty years ago there was not a
rail west of the Missouri river.
It is a remarkable fact that the
United States has now more
miles of railroad than all the
ot her nations of the world com
bined or enough to completely
encircle the earth more than
eight times. This fact alone
marks us as a marvel among the
nations of ti e world. Some of
the inventions along electrical
lines have been among the most
valuable. Edison has tamed the
monarch of clouds, electricity,
harnessed it to the earth, and
through its agency turned night
into day. The moon and the
stars almost shrink from sight
when this product of American
genius, the electric light, bursts
into view. Edison and other in
vestors have utilized the power
of electricity until our country
is a network of wires, but these
will soon be partially displaced
by the most wonderfnl develop
ment of all, wireless telegraphy,
and the wireless telephone, when
messeges are conveyed, as it
were, on the wings of the wind
to the distant seas, warning the
befogged or storm tossed vessel
of danger thus saving hundreds
of lives. The American engi
neer is making the streams which
have tumbled over rocks and
pebbles for ages bend to his
will, this wasted energy is being
harnessed and turned into elec
trical power, turning the wheels
of industry, it lights cities, runs
cars and railroad trains, banish
ing the oil lamp in many places,
heating our homes and cooking
our food. The ocean cable is
another example of American
genius and perseverance. Had
it not been for the determina
tion and indomitable will oi
Cyrus W. Field, the merchant
in Milwaukee or Chicago could
not watch from day to day sales
and prices in Bombay or Yoka
homa, or read the latest war
news from Turkey at his break
fast table. Again there has
been very marked advancement
In medicine and surfrery. In the
early days of our national his
tory there were no regular doc
tors, the use of simple medicines
and some few simple branches
of the art of healing were under
stood by women. There were
men known as bone setters but
they had no surgical knowledge
except that gained by experience
Blood letting and tooth pulling
foil to the barbers who were
also surgeons in a small wav.
Today there is no operation so
delicate or disease so complicat
tA that the American doctor is
not able to successfully dea
with. The use of drugs and
anaesthetics to produce insensi
bility to pain were discovered
hv an American physician in
Boston. The step from the mis
erable quacks of one hundred
years ago to the noble examples
Of the medical profession of to
day is only another marvel o
American progress. The marvel
ous growth of our nation is part
ially due to the lack of religious
disturbances. The minds of
men cannot broaden along scien
tiflc lines if all their time and at
tention is taken np with relig
hatred. Our forefathers in
tended this land as the home of
civil and religious liberty. They
had fled from their own land to
escape religious persecution.
Here no law of caste binds a
man down, religious disturb
ances are practically unknown,
every man being allowed to
worship God according to the
dictates of his own conscience.
The wisdom of the f miners of
our constitution being shown by
the em body men t into that docu
ment of these words: "Congress
shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion or pro
hibiting the free exercise there
of." The foundation of this
great republic was builded upon
religious principles, hence this
motto: "In God wo trust."
Christianity opens the doors to
education. Throughout the
length and breadth of the land
we have the church and the
school,- the great churches whose
spires tower into the heavens
and the great schools with their
thousands of students, both do
ing their part in preparing the
rising generation for the great
future of the nation. During
the last one hundred and twenty
years this nation has produced
more great men than any other
nation on the face of the globe.
We have had our poets, our great
preachers and evangelists, our
statesmen, our orators, our
writers, our inventors, our mar
tyrs, our philanthropists, our
financiers. What nation lias
produced greater orators and
statesmen than Daniel Webster,
Kufus Choate, Abraham Lincoln,
Henry Ward Beccher and Robert
One of the most marvelous
achievements in our nation's
structure is laid with as much
care as was the foundation. Let
us by becoming well informed,
patriotic, liberty-loving citizens
protect that old flag, the stars
and stripes, which floats over the
noblest country of the globe.
We can then with manly pride
claim, as the noblest title of the
world: I AM AN AMERICAN'
