Caldwell was his worship of the truth. He sought for it as 'hidden treasure,' and whether he found It in a gutter or in a temple he held it up and let it shine. His next most prominent trait was his unfailing sense of humor, a humor shot through with sunshine. He laughed at men and loved them at the same time. He quarreled with 'Dea con Hemphill for twenty years and at the end they were as David and Jonathan. These are the things that gripped him, to our . people.
