Lincoln's Birthday and
Abraham Lincoln was torn on Feb

rue county, Ky. In 1842 he wag mar
ried to Mary Todd, who was nlno
years his junior. At the tlmo of his
death, Lincoln was 56 years nf nqo.
He was assassinated on April 14, 1865,
n day of general rejoicing among the
loyal people of the nation. !t was
(lood Friday, and the many religion;
people who observed It as a day of
fasting and meditation mingled with
their religious duties profoundest
thanks to the God of nations, because
the bloody fraternal war that had
lasted for four cnrs seemed about to
terminate In the overthrow of th" rno
roles of the republic and the re-pstnb-llshment
of peace. Only Ave dns

to discard the policy of vengernco.
He Is quoted In Nlcolay and Hay a
saying to the Cabinet: "No one need
expect that I will take any pait In
hanging or killing these men, even
tho worst of them. Threaten them
out of the country, open the gates, let
down tho bars and scare them off.
Enough lives have been sacrificed. We
must extinguish our resentments It

nles at Charleston, where General An-
derson had hoisted ocr Fort Sumter
the same flag that he had taken down
and saluted on that day four years bo
fore, when he surrendered the fort to
General Beauregard. During the attei
noon the President took a dnvo with
Mrs. Lincoln, and his biogipphurs be
foro quoted say: "Never simpler or
gentler than on this day of unprece
dented triumph; his heart ovcritowcu.
with sentiments or gratitude to hen
en, which took the shape usual to
generous natures, or love and kind
ness to all men."
The surrender of Lee practically
overthrew tho military power of the
Confederacy. Thero were other Con
federate armies In the field, the larg
est of which was In North Carolina,
commanded by Gen. Joseph E. John
ston, but In his front was the victori
ous array of Sherman, largely outnum-
bering him In every attribute ot mill-1
tary strength and confident of an easy j
victory over tho broken, despairing
and disintegrated army of the enemy. ,

test the statesmanship of our Govern-
ment, nnd Lincoln not only well tin-
derstood tho great duty imposed upon
him, but he well understood how to In-1
eline tho South to peaeo and reunion.
Ho felt that the great work or rehabil
itation depended largely upon himself.
Congress wns not In session, nnd
would not meet until December, nnd !
he was confident that he could attain
such progress ln reconstruction on
generous and sympathetic lines as
would practically determine the action
of Congress and bring It Into accord
with the Administration. Had Con
gress been In session tho radical ele
ments would have been ehement for
vengeance and greatly retarded tho
reunion that Lincoln had so well con-l
pear at Ford's Theater In the evening
to witness tho play of "Our American

ror some time as captive in her own

liberation of her husband, Crcston

the land, was, .born.
Clarke's high hopes of a long and
