One of Greatest Americans
C
We have met here to celebrate the
hundredth anniversary of the birth of
one of the two greatest Americans
of one of the two or three greatest
men of the nineteenth century of one
of the greatest men in the worlds
history This rail splitter this oy
who passed his ungainly youth in the
dire poverty of the poorest of the
frontier folk whose rise was by
weary and painful labor lived to lead
his people through the burning flames
of a struggle from which the natiog
emerged purified as by fire born
anew to a loftier life After long
years of iron effort and of failure
that came more often than victory Ke
attlast rose to the leadership ol the
Kepublic at the moment when that
J leadership had becomethe stupendous
worldtask of the time
Fortunate as People
I
As a people we are indeed beyond
measure fortunate in the characters
t of the two greatest of our public men
Washington and Lincoln Widely
though they differed in externals the
Virginia landed gentleman and the
Kentucky backwoodsman they were
alike in essentials they were alike in
the great qualities which made each

able to do service to his nation and
to all mankind such as no other man
of his generation could o qr did render
Each had lofty ideals but each iu
striving to attain these lofty ideals
was guided by the soundest common
sense Each possessed inflexible
courage in adversity anda soul
wholly unspotted by prosperity
There have been other men as great
and other men as good but in all the
history of mankind there are no 4othei
two great men as good as these nc
other good men as great
The Way of Lincoln J
Yet perhaps the most wonderful
thing of all and from tie standpoint
of the America of today and of the
future the most vitally important
was the extraordinary way in which
Lincoln could fight yajiantly against
what he deemed wl 1gantl yet pre
serve undiminished his love and re
spect for the brother from whom lit
differed
lie lived in days tlial were great
and terrible when brother fought
against brother for what each sin
cerely deemed to be the right In r
contest so grim the strong men whi
alone call carry it throw i are rare
ly able to do justice to the deep con
victions of those with whom they
grapple in mortal strife At such
times men see through a glass dark
ly to only the rarest nd loftiest
spirits is vouchsafed that clear vision
which gradually comes to all even to
the lesser as the struggle fades into
distance and wounds are forgotten
and peace Jcreeps = back to the hearts
that wore hud But Lincoln was
given this supremevision He did not
hate the man from whom he differed
Weakness was as foreign as wick
edness t o his strong gentla nature j
but his courage was of11 a quality so
high that it needed no bolstering of
dark passion He saw clearly that
the same high qualities the same
courage and willingness for self
sacrifice anddevotion to the right as
it was given them to see the right be
longed both to the men of the North i
and to the men of the Sou thoAs
the years roll by and as all ofus
wherever we dwell row to feel an
equal pride in the valor and self de
votion alike of the men who wore
the blue and the men who wore the i
gray no this whole y nation will grow
to feel a peculiar sense of pride in the
mightiest of the mighty men who mas
tered the mighty days the lover of
his country and of all mankind the
man whose blood was shed for the
union of his people and for the free
dom ofa race Abraham Lincoln

conducted in commemoration of the

A number of songs suitable to the
occasion were rendered by members
of the various classes
Mr R R Perry was the speaker
of the day and his remarks were full
of interesting war stories and facts
concerning the conditions which gave
Lincoln an opportunity to show to the
world the ability within him
Mr Perry departed from the usual
method of delivering a memorial ad
dress and gave the pupils a heart to
heart talk as to the application of the
I example set by such men as Mr Lin
LinI
He mentioned the fact that the de
i parted President was vilifi dand T
slandered years ago that a meeting
to give honor to him could not have >
been held in safety during the Civil
War but that the
entire nation now
gave honor to Mr Lincoln irrespec
tive of politics creed or color He
brought the story home to the pupils
by admonishing them against the
circulation of slanderous reports and
closed by saying that manv men and
women had gone to their graves in
disgrace who were noble and worthy i
because of the effect of false reports
