"Monument and birthday annlversa
rlea should be commemorative, not creat
ivecommemorative of deeds that evoke
wide gratitude and virtues that are still
tradable, bcleiittot have reurodnnrd
some of the glgantte animals and rep
tilt of the world history. We look at
them with fear and congratulate our
aeltea that they are extinct types. We
nave no needs that they could supply.
V hey could not live In our environments
nor we in theirs. So there have been
among men monsters of power and vio
lence. W e cannot forget them, but we
are glad they lived lu another epoch.
Th almanac maker notes their birth
days, but there are no assemblages ot the
people. If monument have been bullded
to them they are liable to ba overturned
when the dynasty change or the com
mune supplant the state.
"But there are men who have so won
oar hearts that we would recall them if
wa could. W feel the need ot them. No
Bhangs of dynasties, no outbreak of the
mob threatens their monuments. One
can hardly conceive of any civil revolu
tion or any riotous outbreak In our coun
try tnai would not respect the raonn
menia of Washington aud of Lincoln.
While they lived they wera at times
haled by men and by communities; but,
when the full stories ot their lives were
un'oksd, when motive and purposes
wera explored, when the universal benill
eence of their public service waa seen,
In the establishment by on aud the res

government, all their oouutrymen ren

"Ws assemble on this anniversary of

at his feet the lessons of a conscientious

Washington's character and life; those
that did not exhaust themselves on a lo

not only to military commanders and

citizen; the lessons that be taught, not
for the march and battle, but for quiet
days when uo drum beat calls to duty.
