as Great in Comfort as
, A New Story of Abraham
Lincoln's Characteristics
that same Lincoln, who, riding horseback along
a country road, got off his horse to pick up out
of the rut and carry home a little helpless bird,
which had been attacked and hurt by a snake or
a vicious bird.
A member of the New York Avenue
Church, Washington, which Mr. Lincoln at
tended while living at the Capital, told me, two
days ago. of zf Sunday morning, when Mr.
Lincoln wan-in his pew and there happened up
the aisle slowly an oldish man, evidently a
stranger, waiting for an usher to find a seat for
him in the crowded church. He paused every
two or three steps after getting well forward,
and then turned to walk back. Just as he was
passing Mr. Lincoln's pew (marked with his
'name), Mr. Lincoln stretched out that long arm
of his and said to the stranger:
"Come in with me."
With the greatest war the nation ever had
(up to that time) upon his hands and heart, he
never lost sight of individual needs, and big and
great as he was, he never failed to stretch out
a helping hand to do even little things.
There is an imperishable influence in the
lives of such as try every day to do good in
ways either large or small.
Why wouldn't a great business establish
ment and its people be at their best if built upon
good-humored, good-deed-doing, according to
Lincoln's pattern?
