Among theso who do not discourage
nor da&.lo is our Lincoln. As tho
liereo light of the fevered hours in
wlilnli ho ton(i unmoved, subsides to a
gen ! i'iij wlntso pritgieis is guiltless
of intiiriieciue siilfe, ho shows fmth
evci more cleat ly as "the gieat com
mon i " He is a living proof of a ti nth
we too often ilottbt in our haste, that
neiihei the (nek of money nor of pedi
glee aliM'iujugh to keep in .subjection
thoso who "will" to shako themselves
freo from impediments. Ho stands as
an encouragement to thoso who strive
against discouraging odda by glorify
ing tho common placo affairs of life
into actual tests of character, and by
throwing his full powers unreservedly
into every task he takes up. Ho shows
that tho sum total expected of a man is
that ho should do the best he can: if
a great man in a small place, by tilling
it to overflowing; if an untried man in
a great place, by tilling it through the
might and tho growth that como from
modesty, humility, teachableness.
Ho is surely one with many of us uot
occupied with proclaiming his descent,
but having whereof to boast in his
ascent, not dandled by a luxurious
mother through tho proxy lovo of hired
urnis, but nourished by a rugged wom
an under those strenuous circum
stances that develop unsung heroes
along every bridlepath of our enormous
frontier. He is not bound within the
limits of any creed of man's inventing,
but throws out his broad soul Into fel
lowship with thoso of all natious who
do man-service as God-pleasers. Ho
does not stalk along in gloomy ab
straction, but is "hail follow" in a sun
shiny way with all thoso weary and
burdened ones to whom a laugh is
nioro refreshing than now wino. Ho is
not filled with thoughts of somo future
destiny, it is only onlookers who see
tho destiny of a man, for ho lp con
tent with tho npxt step each timo that
it comes, no matter where it loads, lie
is not even superior to repining and
gloom but from every hour of depres
sion ho rises to fling tho gage of De
spair Into the faco of Fortune, daring
her to tho conflict.
There is not ono great modern char
actor moro thoroughly human than ho
is. In fact in his day small men reach
ing no higher than his ankles could see
nothing but the mud on his shoes, and
failed utterly to raiso thoir eyes to tho
noble head, with its face seamed moro
than any man's through the frightful
soul-straining weight that was laid by
tho people upon this man of the peo

attorney of Belfast, N. Y., writes:
"I was discharged from tho army on
account of ill health, and Buffered from
heart trouble, over since. I frequently bad
fainting and smothering Bpells. My form
was bent as a man of 80. I constantly wore
an overcoat, even In summer, for fear of
taking cold. I could not attend to ruy busi
ness. My rest was broken by severe pains
about the heart aud left shoulder. Three
years ago I commenced using Or. Miles'
Iloart Curo, notwithstanding I hud used so
much patent medicino and taken drugs from
doctors for years without being helped. Dr.
Miles' Heart Curo restored mo to health. It
Is truly a wonderful medicine and It affords
