Twaii. In the passing of S. m iel L Clemens (Murk Twain) the world loses one of those sw.eet and kindly souls whose existence has served to make it better for his sojourn with US. It is not. too much to sav tl at Mark Twain's best books will be prized more and more by future generations because of their lumi* nous presentation of American life and character. Their writer used the old. fascinating method of pre senting human nature and human life. His characters lived from day to day to come into new surround , ings. to participate in new udven lures, to listen to the experiences and philosophy of new acquaintances, ! Twain was a foe to shams He | fought thi m effectively by laughing [ at them ami making others laugh at ! them. He had real literary art. He pictured the American boy to life. H'"\ was broad minded and blessed with a simplicity that was the simpbcikv of the common man and woman The people of this and other coun tries did well to love this man. His books will ! ve because they are full ! of the kindliness of unspoiled human nature and ol sweet and help ul hu And in the land of his birth mor. his passing «'ill be more generally and sincerely mourned than that of any American for many a year.— Exchange. klvislti Miit al iirieg.
