Mrs. Lillr. Hall Smith's Delightful
Book Givon Fraiso As tho Awakon-
or of tho Public To "Tho
Pathos of Illiteracy In
A well known Maysvillo woman who
shows ovquisito literacy tasto and dis
crimination, has called Tho Public
Ledger's attention to a matter that wo,
rnd probably many others, had not
thought of, i. o., that to ono delightful
Kentucky book, a truo pastoral gem of
tho Blue flrass, has emanated much of
the interest in illiteracy.
This woman writing to Tlip Lodger

Following is an abstract of tho
eulogy delivered Sunday nftcrtioou at
tho Elks' Memorial sorvleo by Tlov, U.
Tho l'uturo lifo is n subject which
has interested tho thoughts of man from
tho very beginning. It has a charm nnd
fascination for tho human heart which
nothing-can dispel. It 1ms given birth
to tho noblest literature breathed its
spirit into romanco nnd tragedy in
spired tho sweetest odes and impollcd
dieams and hopes, prayers and search-
ings for that wnich lies beyond earth's
sunset, allowlirg no satisfaction until
the heart, with its loved memory, is
assured that tho night leads only to
a fairer dawn.
On tliis golden day dedicated' to tho
sacred moluory of thoso "wo have loved
end lost awhile," tho mind and heart
oi o touched with pathos at tho immcu
sity of tho migration out of this
world. It is ono vast procession con
tinues as time, censolcss as tho tbb and
flow of th$' tidos, inovitablo ns tho op
eration of tho law of gravitation. The
procession embraces artists and sculp
tors and architects who wrought upon
peaces like thoso of Venice and Flor
ence. It is composed 'of scientists and
inventors, jurists and statesmen, sol
diers with courage nnd scholnr.s with
stainless lives. It is mado up of mul
titudes who by one mistake mado lift
a failure, of maimed nnd invalid who
were compelled to play tho part of idle
spectators, and legions of all ranks
whose dreams mid visions wore all un
icalied. Day after day, year after
year, century after eonttiry a section of
tho procession nppears, moves across
tho visible stage, and ono by ono van
ishes out of sight. Where do they go"f
Into obliVion7 Into otomnl sleep f In
to absolute nothingness' Tho heart of
tho whole race rises up in protest- and
Tho noble souls of all races and ages
declaro that lifo which is so rich must
bo a life that is long, Tho human soul
instinctively craves another life. It
longs for it as tho heart longs for sym
pathy. It may call tho land beyond by
dilforent names, but all invariably fool
the country beyond tho grave line. It
cries out in the experiences of the
soul; in tho aspirations which refuse
to bo tied to any century or planet; in
tho thoughts which riso beyond the
stars aud dwell on destiny abovo tho
dust; in tho conscienco which over af
firms that right and wrong never die;
in tho memory which gathors upon its
continuities tho imago of a Faco which
stamped itsolf on the soul; in love
which longs' for "tho touch of a van
ished hand and tho sound of a voice
that is still." Theso experiences nro so
many, prophets iu tho soul declaring
Inat "man hns forovor."
This longing for immortality is a
mark of tho highest nobility. It is a
sign of tho imago and superscription of
tho Eternal King upon tho soul -which
indeed pledges coming fulfilment, It
i3 atl element of greatness in all men.
Socrates and Plato, Carlyld and Emer
son, Milton nnd Wordsworth, Tennyson
and Browning nrd among tho tallest
candlesticks in tho King's temiilo.
They arb typical of the' 'passing" years
of timo. Each in his own way gives
expression to his pasaionato and im
measunblo longing for God and im
nortal lifo. Tho lessor singors llko
Swinburn and Hardy nro moroly flutes
over against tho mngniflcont pipo or
gans liko Shakespcaro and Lanier and
Milton whoso soul stirring music sounds
at tho portals of another world when
they may fulfill thoir dramas, overtake
their visions and feast upon perfect
tiuth, porfect beauty nnd perfect love.
Man is moro than a bit of animated
dust, far moro than protoplasm float
ing up into consciousness. The man of
histoiy, despito all his barbarism and
ciuolty, carries somo lines which nro
liko tho lineament of God. Man is au
individual nnd individuality is a form
of unity out of tho rnngo of tho lnwrt
oi disintegration, decay and doath.
Man Is -i porson, and personality is tho
intangible, indestructlblo raonnd. Per
sonality is that in ovcry roan which
can not bo weighed nor measured nor
photographed, and yet which thinks,
reasons, talks, trades, hopes, trusts,
sins, plans, fcols, loves, suffers, re
jolcos. It is tho ego which is nhvays
nnd overywhoro conscious. It is tho
greatest forco next to God Illmolf, nnd
la dostinod to Burvlvo "tho wreck of
matter and the crash of worlds! "
Hut tho greatest witness is God, in
Whoso itnago man was made. No de
clares that man's oxlstenco is moro
than a bubblo punctured- by death. -lie
ii tho living; life-giving God. So in the
oldon days Moaos, tho lawglvor to tho
greatost cation of tho timo, did not
endeavor to convince1 tho Ilobrcws of
Immortality sd much as to' convince
them of tho factf of God nud thon they
would know that "death1, does not end
turo, to sunrise, tho porfect dny. It was
to God in creation, iu providence, in
tho incarnation, suffering, resurrection,
ascension of Christ who, beyond tho
gravo Una, makes tho futuro secure.
To tho tired and weary and faded
1 llgrlm, whoso experiences aro so fitly
symbolized in literature and poetry by
thoso of tho oik of tho forest and
plain, God speaks words of hopo at tho
empty touch. Ho tolls of a. summer
land, Somo whoro tho 'Sun is shining.
Somo where tho songbirds dwell. Somo
whoro tho flowers nro over blooming
and tho day is novcr dark. Some where
thero is no sin, no shamo, nor sorrow,
no partings, but lovo, light, pence, joy
iiiefl'ublc. Somo whoro old companion
ships nro renewed nnd old friendships
aro restored nnd lifo moves merrily on.
Somo whoro wo hear familiar volcos,
nnd get glimpses of famaliar faces,
and grasp'hands of happy greoting, and
hvd over tho long ago.
At this season of tho year tho earth
is held in tho grip of frost and snow.
Tho grcon leaf lias fallen and tho green
sprig hns hidden its faco under the
barreu sod. And through tho dis
mantled tiecs tho wintry winds sigh
nnd mourn n requiem over tho dead
wdrld. But "nature Is not dead. AVhen'
God shake's tho sun?hinf of tho spring'
from tho folds of Ills robes of lighf

There are sublime celestial heights
for the risen soul. What poet, sage,
philosopher, can speak thorn till the
peaks appear There aro rapturous
celostial visions for tho rison soul.
What Angclo, Titian, Raphael, can
paint them before tho soul beholds the

ing celestial melodies for the rison
soul. What Handel, Hnyden, Beethoven
can strike them till the harp Is strung!
But there is One Who gnthcrs in Him
self all highest heights nnd faiYlst
sights and sweetest songs and who gives
tho vision splondid which inspires man
to build into his personality tho things
which will match tho lifo there those
high and cardinal nffections and prin
ciples of justico nnd mercy, faith anil
love, righteousness and charity and
brotherly kindness tho impcrlshablo
jewels of character. Undor such a vi
sion of tho futuro mnn is at his best.
Undor it man does his best work. It
ennobles his personality, beautifies
his character, enlarges his sympathies,
onriches his life, gives him a lofty de
votion to his work, ns it flashos through
every chisol-chip and hammer stroke
and trowel ring nnd business deal. Un
dor tho power of tho vision splendid
every day bocomes horoic.
Iu his old ago John Buskin said:'
"I am dying an unfulflllod prophecy."
But all men aro unfulfilled prophecies.
"For half a contury," said Victor Hu
go, "I havo been writing my thoughts
in proso and vorso history, philosophy,
drama, romance, satire, odo and song,
but I fcol that I havo not said a thou-'
enndth part of what is in ino." But nil
men say tho same. A month ago n
beautiful young woman Lecame a bride
ono overling nnd tho next evening she
was n widow iu mourning. This is tho
story of human lifo, witli'its laughs and
cries, wo'ddlngs nnd fuitornls, swiftly
passing from tho fragranco of tho
orange blossom, to tho nightingale, and
cypress. Tho character of God as a
porfodt worker and th6 intdnso longing
for completeness demands somo other
world where' the hopes and ambitions,-
plans and loves, fo rudely interrupted
hero shall huvo continunnco nnd fru
tltion. Tho heart of. the race, tho Sa
cied Volume, tho Incarnato Itodeomer
says thoro is such- a Wdrld nnd that
"God shrill wipe a way nil t oars from
our eyes." Stb'adicd by this afsur
nnco and carried forward 'by this hope,
Tennyson sweetly sings:
