If such a eulogy were needed or
could be useful, it; could best be found
in the noble and lofty verse of our
greatest poet words in which, if you
will bear with me, I will close:
For him, her old world's molds aside
And, choosing sweet clay from the
Of the unexhausted west.
With stuff untainted shaped a hero new.
Wise, steadfast In the strength of God,
How beautiful to see '
Once more a shepherd of mankind In
Who loved his charge, but never loved
One whose meek flock the people Joyed
Not lured by any cheat of birth.
But by his cleur-grained human worth,
And brave old wisdom of sincerity!
They knew that outward grace is dust;
They could not choose but trust
In that sure-footed mind's unfaltering
And suDDle-tempered will
That bent like perfect steel to spring
again and thrust.
His was no lonely mountain peak" of
Thrusting to thin air o'er cloudy bars.
A sea-mark now, now lost In vapors
Broad pruirie rather, genial, level-
Fruitful and friendly for all human
Yet also nigh to heaven and loved of
. loftiest stars.
Nothing of KuroDe here.
Or, then, of Europe fronting mornward
Kre any names of serf and peer
Could nature's equal scheme deface
And thwart her genial will;
Here was a type of the true elder
And one of Plutarch's men talked with
us face to face.
I praise him not; it were too late;
And some lnnatlve weakness there must
In him who condescends to victory
Such as the present gives, and cannot
Safe in himself as In a fate.
So always firmly he;
He knew to bide his time.
And can his fame abide.
Still patient in his simple faith sub

Great captains, with their guns and

But at last silence comes;
These are all gone, and. standing like
Our children shall behold his fame.

attitude toward Lincoln when he as
sumed the arduous duties of the presi
dency, and how he controlled the sit
uation at all times, even in the face of
the most general opposition, and even
when the members of his own cabinet
deserted him. He showed how the airs
of Lincoln was td save the union, and
how he did not agree with those who

ago we saw what the feeling was when
McKinleys life was taken by the as

by paraphrasing Lincoln's estimate of
Washington, as applied to Lincoln himself.
