T HE stone walls of the White
House no more shut Lincoln in
from his fellows, from their hopes
and sorrows and pride, than did the
unhewn logs behind which he shivered
in the cabin home of his youth. One
night he dreamed that he was In a
crowd, when some one recognized him
as the president and exclaimed in
surprise: "He Is a very common look
ing man." Whereupon lie answered:
"Friend, the Lord prefers common
looking people. That is the reason he
makes so many of them."
Lincoln liked people, and he always
kept In touch with the mass. He (lid
not have to take the word of politi
clans or newspapers about whqt the
country was thinking. Ile went to
As he finished his daily wrestle with
senators and the big-wigs, he plunged
with zest into what he called his "pub
lie opinion bath." Seated in his chair,
with one leg thrown over Its arm, he
received the motley crowd that poured
in through the wide open door of his
office. Those who approached him in
awe found themselves at ease in the
presence of a friend, whose manner
said to every one what lie said in a
speech to a regiment: "I happen tem
porarily to occupy this big Whitej
House. I am a living witness that
any one of your children may look to
come here as my father's childl has."
The man fairly exhaled de~mocracy,
fraternity, equality. Fretierick IDoug
las said that Lincoln was the oniy
white man lhe ever met who (1id not
show consciously or unconsciously that
he recognized his color.
Sympathy flowed -in a constant
stream from its fountain in this great
heart. A mother's tearsi,, a baby's cry,
a father's plea, a crutch or an empty
sleeve never failled to move Lincoln,
"If he has no friend, I'll be his friend,"
he said as he stopped the shooting of
a soldier, under sentence of a court
"My poor girl," he said to a wvoman
