It is almost unbelievable. No; this is not a music box or a mechanical attachment hooked on to a cheap piano.

Editor of The Times-Dispatch: The recent one-hundredth birthday of Abraham Lincoln has been the oc? casion of giving to his name by hla admlrers a_J!ood-tide of praiae rarely lf ever glven to any man, No flaw Is confeaaed in his life or character, no mistake ln his poll? tlcal career conceded; not a. wrong act blemlshes hla llfelong conduct. Wasli inston Is ecltpsed, Lincoln stands "four square" as the greatest Amerl? can. Think of lt! Lincoln on a plane wlth Washington. And not a volce in all Amerlca ralsed in protest. What does it mean? Is the soul and Intel lect, aa well as the body of men of 1861-1R65 still held in submlsalon by the conquering armlea of Grant and Sherman? Let truth be submltted to intolllgent men, Washington fought for Hberty and Independence, founded on the Amerl? can ldea of govemment, as declared In the Declaratlon of Independence, the "consent of the governed." Lincoln carrled on a war of sub .iugation agalnst many mllllona of his countrymen, destroylng thelr llberty. and forcing- a govemment upon them wlthout thelr consent. Washington fought for Anglo-Saxon llberty; Lincoln for giving Hberty to Afrlcaus, which was a curse to them. To-day the Unlted Statea aro hold? lng In sub.iectlon 25,000,000 of people; for dlsgulse It aB we may, the people of the Confederate States are only free ln name and as a matter of courteay. And thls new ldea of Amerlcan gov? emment ba_ for its paternlty Abraham Lincoln. The plea thal Uncoln fought to save the L'nlon ls a false one, known to be ao by all men who are famlUar wlth the politlcal events precedlng tho War of 1861. But thia ls' accepted by a younper generatlon, Who take Northern verslona of the matter. It ts palnful to think that the South? ern peoplo are ready to. aubmlt to thia delflcatlon of Lincoln. and by thelr sllenee assenl tbat, Abraham Lincoln la on the same plane- wlth Waahlng ton, antl?tlTat auch men as Jefferson, Jackson and othera nre'the Inferior of such ;i. man as Abraham Lincoln.

GENERAL MASON WAI-LACEi A SISTER'S LOVlNfc TRIBUTE Mr. Wallace was e. native of Madiaon county, Virginia, having been born at Glen Wallace, on the Rapldan River. He had served his State well and faithfully from the flrst inception of the war between tbe North and South, his company?commandt-d by the gal lant "Welch?having been one of the flrst to go to the protectlon of Har pers Ferry when attacked by John Brown and his followcrs. And later, when Virginla seceded from the Union, and tho Governor called for troops, his reglment?the Seventh Virginla Infan? try?responded at once, and from that tlmo on, for four years of bloodshed and carnage, through tbe storms of wlnter and the heats of summer, often sufferlng privations and hardshtps un told, he did his part faithfully and bravely, never laying down his arms until those last daya around Appomat tox, Then cama months of cruel pri? son life. None but Vlrginlana can ever understand what these brave men had to contend agalnst on returnlng to thelr desolate homes, broken in heart and in fortune.' But Mr. Wallace. wlth indomitablo courage which was his by inherltance, at once'set to work to repalr as far as ln his power the ravages of war, aod wlth a matchless patlenco and fortltude met and overcame every difflculty asMt arose In his path. Ten yeara ago he moved his family from the old home?Glen Wallace?to Charlottesville to educata hla children, latorato Wa8hlngton clty In order to give n. s sona better faciiitles for bual? neaa. And lt was there, surrounded by hla devoted family, that this noble Vir? ginla gentleman and gallant Confed? erate soldier cloaed hla eyes on earthly scenes, and answered the laat sum ui..ns "aa one who wrapa tbe drapery of hla couch about hlm and, Hes down to pleaaant dreamii." He Was carrled back to hla boyhood's home and now sleepa beslde his klndred under the shadow of the mountalns he loved ao well.
