Lincoln IVniiil I'luton-nry
Touching iihiii the dniior of eou-
cotitnitioii of wealth, Mr. Miller
quoted the remarkable foresight
shown by Lincoln in his letter to Wil
liam I. Klkiu in 1801:
"I ee in the near future," nniil
Lincoln, "n crisi nppronehiiiK that
unnerves mo nnd causes me to trom-
, bio for the safety of iay country. As
1 h result of war, corporations have
boon enthroned and an era of cor
ruption in high places will follow, and
the money of the country will en
deavor to prolong its reign by work
ing upon the prejudices of the people
until all the wealth is iifrgrcKiitctl in
few hands and the republic is de
stroyed. I feel at this moment more
niiNiety for the safety of my coun
try than ever before, even in the
iniiLit of war. Cod gray! that my
feimpieion may prove jtroundlo."
hiiHirtHiit data from history was
quoted by the speaker to show that
the suspicions of our great and good
President Lincoln were not grouiul
lusi. I'imIci- Wilson's l,cndciliip
''Under the wine ami sano leader

speaker, "reforms have been insti

which theretofore they have appealed1
"This tuition has never had a nn

or who has been actuated by loftier)
impulses than Mr. Wilson. None is

liHtiotinlteui a more conscientious
ragard for the suerod rights of lm-1
inanity. That has 1hhii his guidim.'.
Mar m the conduct of affairs at I ie
nnd aliruail. He hus placed clearl
before the Auicrican people, as im
prekideut since Lincoln has done,
their duties and responsibilities H
oitiicns; aud in his dealinps with the
nations involved in war, he h shui,
that what applies to the inliilti.i!
khould, with equal force, apph t..

I'misiml Oiitw of .Stale
"No president has been so hmdm
vA with the cares of state, or b..
lieen called uiion to solve such p i
lrfesing problems affecting the w.l

"With half of the civilised w.,r'.l
War-erasi, through tho dash m
arms, unprecedented in the bistorv ot
mankiud when international law Jm-.
lwn ruthlessly overthrown and t Ii
contempt for human rihts and the
lttws of both God and man have been
marked, Mr. Wilson has not swayed
, Jrom the right. He ha kept hisj
jtoise and has ken the upstundinv !
figure to urge the rule of reason and
of humanity. No one has been able I
to force him iuto a step which would j
violate the declared neutrality of th:-,
country. He has been guided b an'
inborn instinct of justice and right .
and this ha been the secret of hi
dignified and firm courage.

Flavor originated by the
OST everybody has
known for years
that Wheat is the
most perfectly bal
anced grain food in the
world but nobody knew
how to make it delicious to eat
until the discovery of KRUMBLES.
Krurnbles is the first wheat food
that gives you all the delicious flavor
of the wheat a sweetness that
grows richer and richer the more
you chew it.
Krurnbles is all-wheat the
whole of the wheat, with all the
starch, all the protein, all the min
eral salts and phosphates, and all
the bran that people need so much.
