weak. Not in body, but In mentality,
in life-purpose, in character. There was
trouble between the two. Neither was
strong enough to overcome the Instinct
of the brute. The stronger brute pre
valled. That Is all. This mau and
woman stumbled, as men and women
have always stumbled, stumbled for
thousands of years, over this great
truth: .Strni-th of character comes
only thrfnb obedience. If you want a
strong body you must obey the laws of
the tody. If you want a strong mind
you must obey the Ihvvs of mind. If
you want a strong soul you must obey
the laws of the soul. Disobey and you
become a weakling. It is Inevitable.
Disobey the mor.il law, which by the
way is not an arbitrary thing, but laid
deep in your nature, and you are a mere
creature of impulse a creature des
pised of nature and of society, a self
created weakling. It has taken ages
for nations to learn that liberty comes
only through obedience to law. When
will individuals learn that not only lib
erty but strength comes only through
obedience to law? And if this be taken
for a sermon, let this be the exhorta
tion: "Quit ye like men: be strong."

In the autumn of 1818 a plain, moth
erly woman, the wife of one of tho
early settlers of Lndlaua, died, and was
laid to rest with the simplicity charac
istic of those pioneer days. There was
not even a clergyman In attendance to
offer a funeral prayer. Eighty-four
years have passed since that day. The
poor woman would have said, had she
been asked, that after so long a time
her very existence would almost have
passed from the memory of the living.
Nevertheless, thousands gathered to
dedicate a monument to her memory.

simple pioneer woman might well have
asked. The orators of this day would
reply that she had given Abraham Lin
coin to the world, and had, with her
husband, trained him during those
early years when impressions for good
are most lasting. She died before he
was ten years old. In similarly appro
priate recognition of the part which
falls to mothers in shaping the charac
ter of the child, the mother of Washing

Another outrage has been perpetra
ted upon the poor automobilist. A Mr.
Marble has been fined $1 and sent to
Jail for a year for running into and
killing a careless driver of a delivery
wagon. Mr. Marble cheerfully agreed
to pay the dollar, but remonstrated
against a Jail sentence as seitlng an
extremely bad precedent.' The fact
that the victim drove a delivery wagon
had been taken into account, however,
and the Judge felt that he could not
further diminish the sentence. It is
apparent that if chauffeurs learn that
for every death caused by them they
must go to Jail for a year, much of
the sport of the automobile will be lost.

The rare combination of genius, cour
age and energy that made up the char1
acter of Mrs. Elizatetb Cady Btanton
would have made any man great In his
otto generation. It has made a woman
great In her century, and has stamped
an enduring impression upon the age.
Var fifty years this woman and bet
work have stood in the limelight of
public Inspection, and been marks for
ridicule and open, often bitter, opposl
tion. But she never faltered. She liv
