"I am standing now just behind the curtain, and In full glow o
the coming sunset. Behind me are the shadows on the track, before
me lies the dark valley and the river. When I mingle with Its dark
waters I want to cast one lingering look upon a country whoso gov
ernment Is of the people, for the people, and by the people." L. L.
