Suffice It to say, that by the use of the plainest, simplest language, embodying- the strongest logls, driven home to the hearts, of the hearers by homely illustrations, the victor's crowa was, generally, awarded to Lincoln. On the next mile stone we read of the astonishment, the disappointment, the foar of results that came to a large proportion of the people of the nation, when it was announced that this un known Lochlnvar from out the "wild and woolly west" had been nominated for president of the United States, over the ripe scholars, the eminent lawyers, the experienced statesmen and diplomats of the "culchawed east." Some even considered it as a sign indicating the failure of a republican form of government. In the opposition press of the country, during the cam paign, he was caricatured as a clown, as a monkey, as a fanatic, as an ig norant ox driver, etc. During it all he maintained a dignified silence. But the people believed in him, in his hon esty, in his ability, in his patriotism and he was elected president of the United States. Another mile stone in his history is passed. He leaves his Illinois home for the national capitol to assume the responsibilities of his office. Never would your speaker, though he should live a thousand years, for get the hand shake with that brave. strong, honest man when en route, and the peculiar, indescribable expression on his face. Perhaps the best way to describe it Is to say It was as the drawn face of one bending under a heavy load; one with a heart almost breaking in view of the trust Imposed in him by the people; one weighed down with a full sense of the respon sibilities that had been and were to be placed upon him; one who thought of the issues not as affecting himself, but the nation. AYho that stood at the east room of the capitol of the nation on the 4th day of March, 1861, can forget that scene? One of the most eventful in the history of the nation. Hundreds of private detectives, with eagle eyes, sauntered through that great assem blage, while hundreds of armed sol diers were stationed nearby, and ar tillery, well provided with shot and shell, were effective warnings against any outbreak. Some imagined the in augural address would afford a pre text for revolution, by reason of its bitter denunciation of those who. talk ed of secession, the enemies of the government. But what a bitter disap pointment was his inaugural address to that class. So sympathetic, so for giving, so patriotic. In argument, clear and convincing showing there could be no possible excuse for dividing the Union only unwarranted, wicked re bellion. It aroused the patriotism of the north. It was a holy, comforting message to the unionists of the south. Another mile stone in his history stands before us. On It we read of his acts as a ruler, as our beloved presi dent. To the people it seemed as su perfluous to ask, as did one of old: "Who knows but thou are come Into the kingdom for such a time as this?" To them It seemed as if he were God's divinely appointed leader, while he said of himself: "Without a name, without a reason why I should have a name, there has fallen upon me a task such as did not rest even upon the 'Father of his country." " In his new and responsible position he was domi nated by a broad intelligence by un selfish generosity; by unbounded sym pathy; by unflinching courage, by an absence of vindlctlveness and revenge, even when It was deserved; a hater of secession, but no personal animosity toward southern men; one who asked to be led by the teachings of God's word in all things; his every act was a passion to make his life count for as much as possible for his country In the present and for the future. He was a politician In a high and honorable sense of superior shrewd ness; he was a natural born states man; he saw farther Into the future than any man of his day; he"was freed from sectional spite a generation ahead of his contemporaries; he had out grown his frontier surroundings; he had outgrown the great state of Illi nois; he had outgrown the United States; he had brought the entire world, without the remotest thought or desire on his part, so to do, to crown him as one of the world's greatest men. His was an inglorious beginning, but it soon merged Into a glorious career. Abraham Lincoln dominated every man or collection of men with whom he came in contact, with one excep tion, during the most strenuous period of our nation's life, and he did it so quietly, so unobtrusively that they agreed with him ere they were aware of it or why. We can, at this time, read only a small part of the writing on these mile stones In his life. We now come to the last one and read that the as sassin's bullet ended this noble, earthly life April 15, 1866. On this stone the inscriptions are not placed there by the immortal dead, but engraved by the hand of time. Centuries will come and go, but this hand wll( keep on writing. Marble monuments and bronze stat ues will not perpetuate the memory of Abraham Lincoln. as effectively as the annual gatherings such as this the world around, wherever Americans may be found.

April 15, 1S65, was the most unfortunate day in the his tory of the south, during the last half of the nineteenth century. In Abra ham Lincoln's death she lost her best friend. We are assured that only the day before his death, in a cabinet meeting, he declared1 "that the southern people needed sympathy and not cen sure, and that he would not permit the punishment of southern leaders." The great Confederate leader. Gen eral Johnston, said, when he learned of President Lincoln's death: "The loss Is most serious to the i people of the south," His great, warm heart yearned for the seceded sisters and he was always sad when the chastening blow of cor rection w-as struck. His whole heart went out In that one immortal sen tence: "With malice . toward none, with charity for all." Time has shown the south that he was their true friend and today no northern name is as much loved In all the south as that of Abraham Lincoln. ' You would be surprised, as we were, if you culd visit one of the great col leges of England and see that large frame with glass front, enclosing sen tences from Abraham Lincoln. One of them, which we copied, showed most clearly the character of the man. Here It is: "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am. not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have. I must stand with any one who stands right stand with him while he is right and part with him when he goes wrong." The fore going sentiment shows that there went into Abraham Lincoln's composition. In a pre-eminent degree, a realization of the supreme valiA of true, pure, noble manhood, as the determining factor of a man's life. Tear after year when the veterans of '61 to '65 observe Memorial day that brief speech of Lincoln at Gettysburg will be read. Its eloquence. Its deep pathos. Its Inspiring sentiments will kindle anew In every heart a love of country', a genuine patriotism. The orator of national renown. Ed ward Everett, was selected to deliver the oration on that occasion and he did well his part. But what he said Is hidden away In the libraries, while what Abraham Lincoln said Is ever anew before the American people. In our public schools thousands of girls and boys annually declaim It, enkind ling In their hearts and those of their schoolmates a love of country such as could be Inspired in no other way; while unaided success will Inspire them to aim for the best In life. For ages after the battle of Ther mopylae, every Greek rchool child was taught to recite the names of the 300 heroes who fell in defense of that pass. And in the Athens of today we found OUT OF D for a rainy day.- wtfl ; J ' fin4 th nrAtlA . I IHfU IMC yicuiji comfort and freec of bodily movement WATERPROOF OILED CLOTHIN SLICMRS'Jo? SUITS '35?

A nobler sentiment, a holler Inspira tion will be given to the youth of America by a recital of the Immortal words of Abraham Lincoln at Gettys burg. Perhaps one of the greatest tributes ever paid President Lincoln was after his death, by the editor of London "Punch," one ' of England's ablest writers. For years after Lin coln's election as president, this paper most mercilessly, most scurrllousky, most unjustly abused and caricatured him. But, as this editor studied Pres ident Lincoln's life, his work, his achievements, his noble character, his success as president, abuse changed to praise. After President Lincoln's death, the. editor penned the verses I shall quote, showing what he had been, "a scurril ous Jester," but that he had changed to he an ardent adhilrer: Beside the corpse that has for winding sheet The Stars and Stripes he lived to ' raise anew; Beside the mourner at his head and feet Say, seurril jester, is there room for you?. Yes, he had lived to shame me from my sneer, To lame my pencil and confute my pen, To make me own this man princes peer. New birth of a new soil, the King of Men , From the Atlantic to the Pacific and over the .oceans of the east and the west the pages In the history of this great man have been turned over to day and" read by millions, showing a record brilliant and' stormy; days of dt-ep sorrow and severe trial, of holy trust and glorious triumph. - Ho came to us 100 years since as a babe. More than two score years have passed since his bodily presence left us, but In his life, in his noble char acter, as the liberator of his race, as the preserver of the republic, as a mar tyr to his convictions of the right, he lives today, as in '61 to '65. His humble birth, his early life struggle, his triumph In the battle of life, his tragic death, will ever be re membered by the world and he will forever live as one of her grandest men, his fame the treasure of the hu man race; while In a nearer and dearer sense, to us as Americans he will ever live as long as rivers flow out to the sea and old ocean lifts her waves to the storms, aye "Till the sun grows cold, and be stars are old, and the leaves of the Judgment book unfold," the flag of Washington and Lincoln will wave In triumph.

APPRECIATED The Little Butte Group of the Arizona Bouse Copper Company Meets With Decided Approval. Last week we advertised the opening price of the stock of the Arizona Bouse Copper Company at 10 cents per share. The response from both Ari zona and California was most gratifying and put the stamp of public ap proval on the enterprise. During the first week in which the stock has been offered for sale, over 140,000 shares hrve been subscribed; and this stock was largely taken by persons who had personally visited and examined the property. Seventy thousand shares were taken by actual residents of Bouse, and over 30,000 by men who are working on the property. This Is the finest kind of evidence of the richness of the claims. Following Is a partial list of purchasers of stock during the last week: . Shares GEO. HODEI Pacific Savings Bank, Los Angeles, Cal. -O.OOO H. C. Harper, capitalist, Downey, Cal - 20 000 J. J.

Arrangements tore now betng made for the siding for cars being loaded, and a gasoline hoist will soon be installed on the property. The unprecedented demand for this stock has exhausted the allotment that the company had decided to sell at 10 cents per share, . and no more stock is to be had at that figure. From this date until further notice the selling price will be IS cents per share. IVe confidently expect that this stock will soon be selling for 50 cents per share. Judging from the sales of the past week the allotment at IS cents will not last long. We therefore advise quick action If you wish to secure some of this stock at this price.
