I ttd not provided the flag; I had
.not made the arrangements for ele
vating It to Its place. I had applied
ibut a very small portion of my feeble
strength In raising It. In the whole
transaction I was In the hands of
the people who had arranged It.
:And If I can have the same generous
co-operation of the people of the
.nation, I think the flag of our
country may still be kept floating
Cpeech In Independence Hall. Feb. 22. 1S61.
I am loath to close. We are not
-enemies, but friends. We must not
fet enemies. Though passion may
have strained, It must not break,
our bonds of affection. The mystic
chords of memory, stretching from
vtry battlefield and patriotic grave
to every living heart and hearthstone
II over thla broad land, will yet
well the chorus of the Union when
gain touched, as surely they will be,
'by the better angles of our nature.
First Inaugural Address, March 4. 1S1.
In regard to the Great Book, I
have only to say that It Is the best
gift which God has given man. All
the good from the Saviour of the
world Is communicated to us through
this book. But for this book we
could not know right from wrong.
All those things to man are con-,
talned In It.

Lincoln and the Humorists.
During some of Lincoln's dally vis
Its to the war department there were
jaany spare moments while he waited
for fresh news from the front or for
the translation of cipher messages,
and when he did not All up the other
wise Idle time by telling stories he
would read aloud some humorous ar
ticle from a newspaper, as, for in
stance, Orpheus C. Kerr's droll re
yorit from Mackerelvlllo, or Petrole
um V. Nnsby's letters In sarcastic
vein; at other times Artemua Ward's
inimitable lectures. Some of Nasby's
letters wcro irresistibly funny, espe
cially thoso relating to tho continuous
struggle for the postofflco at "Confed
lit Cross Roads" and to tho backward
ness of somo of our generals, relates

Y V he loved sunshine
And though the dread
That held this land
In its bloody hand
He Was the beacon light
Of Freedom and of Union,
And sad, though brave and
He held the Nation faithful
To right instead of wrong.

Of Lincoln shall not fade,
And what he gave
To freeman and slave
Forevermore has made
This Nation one in spirit,
The spirit that shall hold

ALWAYS NEAR CAPITAL
Lincoln Never Had Complete Rest
During Civil War.
Unpretentious House, a Cottage In
the Soldiers' Home Grounds,
Where He Spent the Hot
Months, Still Is Object
of Reverent Interest.
Willie our recent national chief ex
ecutives have fled from Washington
and Its summer beat and moved to
cool summer capitals, as, for instance,
Buzzards Bay, Oyster Bay and Bev
erly, Lincoln In his day was forced
ever to remain- on guard in the na
tion's capital tiie year through.
During his four troublous years In
Washington be took no vacation and
his summer residence was within
easy ride of the seat of government.
The Anderson cottage. In the sol
diers' home grounds, was his summer
home, and it was here, guarded by
a company of cavalry, that he lived
while handling the reins-of govern
ment through the Civil war. He rode
to the White House every day and re
turned at night, the hour more often
than not being late.
His simplicity of taste was such
that he would gladly have ridden
without escort, but the secretary of
war, the trenchant Stanton, insisted
on the cavalry escort, for the presi
Lincoln said he did not want It;
he "couldn't hear himself think" with
the soldiers clattering along beside,
before and behind him. But with his
usual complaisance In what he deem
ed non-essentials, he yielded. Some
times he rode horseback, accompa
nied by the escort. At times he was
called on to make a sudden journey
from his cottage to the White House.
One such call was on the receipt of
news of the reverse at Chtckamauga..
Lincoln mounted his horse and rode
Lincoln's Summer Home.
In the moonlight to the White House,
to take up the task of organizing' the
, means of ultimate triumph out of
what looked like defeat.
1 Visitors to Washington today look
at the summer homo of Lincoln with
reverent Interest. It Is about four
miles from the White House, to the
north, and though tall buildings 11a
( between it and the heart of the city,
a little vista has been kept open
through which may be seen from the
grounds the dome of the Capitol. i
Lincoln's Usual Swear Word.
On one occasion Lincoln, when en
tering the telegraph office, was heard
to remark to Secretary Seward, "By
jlngs, governor, we are here at last."
Turning to hlra In a reproving man
ner, Mr. Reward said: "Mr. President,
where did you learn that inelegant ex
pression?" Without replying to the
secretary, Lincoln addressed the oper
ators, saying: "Young gentlemen, ex
cuse me for swearing before you. 'By
Jlngs' 1b swearing, for my good old
mother taught me that anything that
had a 'by' before It was swearing."
The only time, however, that Lincoln
was ever heard really to swear was
on the occasion of his receiving a tele
gram from Iiurnsldo, who had been
ordered u week before to go on to the
relief of Rosecruns at Chattanooga,
who was In great danger of an attack
from Bragg. On that day Burnslde
telegraphed from Jonesboro, further
awny from Itosecrans than he was
when ho received tho order to hurry
toward him. When Burnslde'a telegram
was placed In Lincoln's hands ho said,
"D n Jonesboro." Ho then tele
graphed Burnslde as follows:
"September 21, 1863.
"If you are to do any good to Rose
crans It will not do to waste tlmo at
Jonesboro. A. LINCOLN."

CHARM HARD TO ANALYZE
lts Presence Easily Felt, but Descrip
tion Will Be Found a Thing
of Some Difficulty,
Over half of our American girls
work. They stand behind counters,
bend over machines, sit nt desks, and
march, militant figures. In tho proces
sion of Industries that seem to block
the road to girlish grnco nnd light
heartcdness nnd freedom from enre.
Ono woman who has worked nnionp
nnd written books about nnd found
inspiration in the working girl says
that charm sometimes drifts down,
unawares, n thing ephemeral, n gift
of tho gods to the girl who has had to
work so hard that she has had no
time to think about her lack of
"I wish I knew wherein charm lies;
but I don't know, nlthough I've stud
ied it and tried to analyze It as much
as most folks have, I suspect. In
books, in pictures, in people. In places,
I've met many, many kinds of charm:
but I've never been nble to say Just
what It was that charmed me. Cer
tainly It was never mere beauty, nor
mere Intelligence, nor mcro cheerful
ness, nor mere kindliness. I've seen
beauty that bored, and listened to
cleverness that repelled, nnd met with
cheerfulness that was Inane and with
kindliness that was exasperating, i
Charm Is a gift of the gods, nnd It
cannot be wooed like fame, nor won
like money, nor bought like titles, nor .
developed like patience, nor seized
like a prize o' war. If It'comes, It I
comes; and If It's thought on too
much, It flies away. And there's an
end on It." Mother's Magazine.
LESSON FROM THE PROFESSOR ,
Old Gentleman Was Perfectly Con- .
vlnced That the Youngster Was
Competent to Give It I
The old gentleman wondered where
the young couple had got to, for it
was getting late. He rather suspect
ed they had wandered out Into the
garden, so he wended his steps in
that direction. He soon camo across
the young people, and found them In
a most Interesting attitude. The
young man had the fair girl clasped
In both his arms, and was kissing her
as If he hadn't tasted such a dainty
for at least five minutes.
The old gentleman watched tho
osculatory performance to the finish
,whlch he found to be somewhat weary
work and then made his presence
"Isn't it very late for you young
people to be out?" he said.
"It is is rather, pa," faltered tho
fair girl; "but but Mr. Popple has
been glv giving me a lesson In as
"My stars!" ejaculated the old gen
tleman. "He has, and no mistake! I
myself saw him teaching you how the
Great Bear hugs."
Then the young couple looked so
foolish that the old gentleman shut
his eyes out of sheer compassion.
Poet's Memory Lives.
The saying "Christmas comes but
once a year" Is attributed to Thomas
Tusser, a medieval poet (1524-1680),
who seems to have been strong on
epigrams. TheT same idea may have
occurred to others, but Tusser gavo
It expression. He was classed as an
agricultural poet, partly because he
had not much education and partly
because he treated simple themes,
which he understood in 'a plain and
simple way. Tussor had an ear for
music, and served to order as chor
ister In some churches of his day.
His first publication was entitled "A
Hundred Good Points of Husband
rle," and later he published "A Hun
dred Good Points of Husbandrle Late
ly Married Unto a Hundred Good
Points of Housewifery," and still later
this was amplified Into "Five Hun
dred Good Points of Husbandry Unit
ed to as Many of Good Housewifery,"
Reprints of these boks aro still ex
tant with an autobiography of tho au
thor In verse. Southey, himself a
critical poet, characterized Tusser as
"a good, honest, homely, useful old
rhymster." Some of Tusser's phrases
have passed Into proverbs.
Looking to the Future.
The beautiful lady consultod her
attorney, and was received with bows
"I am glad to tell you," said the
legal gentleman, "that your breach
of promise suit has already produced
results. The defendant has offered to
compromise by marrying you."
"That suits me," declared the beau
tiful lady. "I'd rather do that than
stand a chance of losing a suit. Well,
you have done beautifully. What do
I owe you for your services T"
'"Shall we say 5Xr
"We ahall not That la altogether
"Well, I'll tell you what I'll do.
I'll cut that bill in two If you will
promise to retain me when you sue
for divorce." Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Learning How to Write.
The following is taken from a page
of practical household suggestions
published in the Woman's Home Com
panion:" "My little boy tired very quickly
when I tried to teach him to write, so'
I gave him a cap, a bagvuind whistle
and told him to play letter carrier.
Since then he sits down Immediately
after breakfast each day and writes a
short letter to ono of the neighbors,
then plays postman and delivers it.
The neighbors enjoy the little game,
and it 1b wondorful bow quickly he Is
learning to write and spoil with ease."
