FEBKUARYS SACRED SOXS. I BRIEF MENTION.
The Xaata Which Gave as Wasaiasj
ai Uaeala-Menwrtew Berta
February ia illustrious among the
months of the year for that it Rare birth
to tbe two greatest and beet men of tbe
rebubtic Washington anu Lincoln . Ju! j
is sacred to Cteiar and Aoirast to Autrus
tu, bat February produced alike the
founder and the savior of the republic.
Februerj is derived from a Latin word
which igntfles to free. Washington de-
lirered his country from tyranny and
Lincoln purged it of slavery. These
great men wtra the political giants of
their times. They were differ
ent in many respects but alike
in two. love of country and
their ftllowmen. Tbey are not to be
compared. Each was a complete char
acter and perfect in his way as far as
human perfection could attain. Wash
ington was kicgly and great. L:n
coin was manly and simply sublime
Washington was a soldier, a scholar and
a gentleman; Lincoln was a self made
man and one of nature's nob'.e men.
v afuiDgton was born a leader of men;
L ncoln grew into the hearts of the peo
ple. Washington was the sword of liber
tj; L:ocoln was its Ehield. Washington
spurned a kingly crown; Lincoln broke
servile chains. Both were children of
the suni.y south and beloved of the
ragged north. Washington was first in
war, first ia peace and first in the
hearts of bis countrymen; Lincoln was
tbe lover of peace, the tr.anyr of war and
the itiol of a race. It well becomes
Americans to remember these great men
who did so much fcr Americans and the
worli. Though dead they still lite, not
only in history but their mighty shades
still move and have their beics on the
stage of current events.
Tbey reared monuments more lasting
than brasa and their virtues shall shine
as the stars when the marble column
that rise to their memories shall have
crumbled into dust.
