WIS LIBRARY A SMALL ONE
At a Boy Lincoln Had Few Opportu
nities for the Acquisition of
HEN Abraham Lincoln was
a small boy, says St. Nich
olas, he had very few
books. Thcro was no need
for him to consult a list of
the hundred best books. His earliest
possessions consisted of less than half
a dozen volumeB a pioneers Horary,
i First, of course, was tho bible, a
-whole library In Itself, If properly un
derstood, and containing every sort
of literature stories, poomB, dramas,
addresses, orations, histories, somo
simple enough for the youngest child,
others taxing the wisdom of the learn
ed. Second was "Pilgrim's Progress,"
with its quaint characters and vivid
scenes related In simple, vigorous En
glish. "Aesop's Fables" waa a third,
and introduced the log-cabin boy to a
wonderful range of characters tho
gods of mythology, the different ranks
and classes of mankind, and every
animal under the sun. Fourth was a
History of tho United States, In
which there was tho charm' of truth
and a moro modern tone, and from
which were learned tho lessons of
patriotism that Lincoln's manhood
put Into action. Last came Weems'
"Life of Washington," a queer, stilted
book, but one full of detail that made
Washington seem a living example.
These five books were the begin
ning of Lincoln's education; and what
wIbo man has outgrown them all?
From the Bible, Pilgrim's -Progress,
and Aesop the boy Lincoln learned
the power and beauty of plain Eng
lish words, and saw that the-grandest
thoughts and moat poetic Imaginings
needed only the strong little words
of every day. When, therefore, in
later llfo he wished to be sure he un
derstood any matter, it became his
custom to translate it into words such
as a child can understand.
Read again the Gettysburg address
and second Inaugural, aid learn how
Lincoln could make tho homespun
words of common use move the
hearts of his fellowmen.
Who will tell us what bookB were

of the past when 'they were "young

WORLD'S JUDGMENT AT FAULT
Writer Claims That Proper Apprecia

RULY Lincoln, ono of the
greutest of observers, was
himself least truly obsorved.
God had built him In tho
back-yard of tho nation, and
thore, wrapped in homely guise,
had preserved and matured hla
pure humanity. He was heard, but
seems rarely, If over, to havo been truly
seen. Tho reports wo havo of him do
not satlBfy, do not JuBtify themselves,
aro Inconsistent. The eastern, old
world eyo could not read beyond tho
queer hat, bad tailoring and boots you
could not now glvo away and he was
so long he fairly had to stoop to look
the little world In tho face.

as weakness, timidity and Inde
cision' just as it reads Btrcngth In
nolso and power In abuse. It is said
of sound that vqlumo will start a tear
moro quickly than quality of tone. Dut
it 1b surprising that professional ob
servers, artista and writers alike, havo
drawn and redrawn an untruo picture
of this man. Out of tho hundreds of
Lincoln's pictures few aro reliable,
even as records of fact, and the hun
dreds of copyrighted Uvea of him, in
their personal description, aro largely
reiterated popular opinion and hear

The Great American.
Ono hundred and five years ago the
First Great American was born in a
cabin in Kentucky.
Oreat men were npt lacking in
America before Lincoln, but they
were not of the eoll of our now land.
Washington was a colonial country
gentleman; Jefferson a cosmopolitan
revolutionist; Hamilton a reincarnate
patrician of old Rome.
It was left for Abraham Lincoln to
gather up-and embody the character
istics of the' nation he was born to
snve; boyish humor, homely wit, keen
viBlon and unflinching purpose.

DARKNE8S AND LIGHT.
I.KHSON TKXT-I.uko 11:I4.M. M-3B.
(JOl.UHN TKXT "Look thurcfom
whither the IIkIiI thnt Is In theo be not
darkneiiH." I.ultu llltf.
I. ' Tho Accusation (vv. 14-16.) The
fact of demonology as revealed In tho
Now Testament rocords 1a hore
Btrongly emphasized. Their existence,
tholr malignity, their evil powers,
their relation to tho dovll, and yet
their subjection to our Lord, 1b all
clenrly set buforo ub. Tho dovll had
ho taken possession of this man that
ho could not spenk, yot a word from (
JesiiH, nnd tho dumb spake. That ho
should havo such power caused tho
pcoplo to "wonder" (v. 14). HIb mlr
ucIoh Were for ono principal reason
(John 5::tG). Matthew tells ur (12:2:1)
that In this case thuy asked tho qucB
tlon: "Ih this tho Son of David," o. g.,
tho promised Messiah? Tho rocord
docB not, however, Indicate that they
belloved on him were convortod.
They know what had been prophesied
about tho Coming Ono (Isn. 29:18,
32:3, 4), yet they hesitated to como
out on his Bide. Into the midst of
their controvorBy (v. 1G, Matt. 12:24;
Mark 3:22) tho Scrlbca and Pharisees
projocted themselves. They had
como down from Jerusalem seeking,
"that they might accuso him" (John
19:35, 30). It Is over thus that tho
dovll seeks to divert.
II. Tho Dofenso (vv. 17-20). "Dut
he, knowing their thoughts." Evident
ly they dared not oponly to mako tholt
uccusationB. They would not accept
tho natural and true explanation.
Josua endured this contradltlon and
theso chargos for us (Isa. 63:3, 4),
and must not his dlBclplcB expect a
like treatmout? (Matt. 10:25). With
convincing logic Jesus reveals their
motlvo (v. 1G) and demonstrates the
untenablo position and conclusion
which resulted from their own charge.
Satan 1b not fighting hlmbelf. A king
nover sends nn army against his own
soldiers, but against thoBO ot bis en
emy. Thoroforo, out of their own ac
knowledgement that tho devils were
cast out, ho proves that the kingdom
of God has como upon them. Such an
accusation (v. 15) was to Jesus an ev
idence of tho depravity of their hearts.
There is keen sarcasm in the answer
ho demanded from them (v. 19). Evi
dently they, too, had had power over
demons, and it 1b easy to boo the dl
lomraa into which ho led thorn. This
la not tho only time thnt Jeaus con
victed men out of tholr own testi
mony (Mutt. 21:25).
III. Tho Application (vv. 21-26).
With a true teacher's skill Jesus
drives home the truth brought out in
tho preceding paragraph. Satan is a
"strong man," but he, Jesus, Is strong
er. Ho has power to overcome and to
tako from tho strong man hU armor
(defense), and biB spoil, and to bind
him fast (v. 22; Mark 3:27; Rev,
20:2), Thoso bound by chains of sin
aro the spoil of Satan, and Jesus li
the only ono powerful enough to
break tho power of canceled sin
And sot the prisoner free. '
Cleanse the "Palace."
With Christ thero must be entire
possession; there can bo no neutrality
(r. 23), We cannot belong to Christ
and bo a Blavo to Satan, to mammon,
to self, or even to others whom we
may love. The persistence of evil is
hero indicated. Unclean spirits are
ever seeking a habitation. Therefore
it is not enough for a man to bo
cleansed, his dwelling must bo occu
pied, and if the Holy Spirit does not
take possession, tho evil one will. The
parablo that follows (vv. 24-26)
teaches this truth negatively. In one
caso Satan is dislodged by Christ, he
finds the "palace" (v. 22) (man) to
bo pro-occupied. In this case the pal
ace is empty (Matt. 12:44). The ab
sence of a poslttvo attachment, too, or
possession by, Jesus Christ, involves
hostility to him. This picture is that
ot tho reformed man, not of tho re
generated man. This latter has hla
placo prc-occupled, and tho returning
spirit can find no place of abode. Un
less, however, such bo tho cane, the
latter ond of that man is far worso (
than his first stato; witness tho gold
cured lntomperate men who roturn to
their cups (2 Pot. 2:22); they return
because they have no strong defender
to drive off tho returning enemy.
This application and principle here
j propounded may, and does, account
for most of the back-sliding after many
of tho so-called conversions, viz., that
tho germ of character has not been
generated (John 3:7). It is by far
tho most difficult proposition In
Christian work to reach ono who la
thus gospel hardened.
IV. Tho Illustration (w. 33-36). In
his teaching, Jesus constantly used fa
miliar objects as illustrations. Tho
Incongruity of placing a candle under
a bushel measure rather than In its
rightful placo that It may conspicu
ously perform Its proper function la at
onco apparent. Jesus Is tho Light
(John 7:17; 8:12), so also 1b the
Christian. They aro to be so sot bo
foro men that, seeing Christ reflected
in them, they will glorify the Father
who sent htm. This Is that whtch is
used by God In redeeming, transform
ing and ennobling earth's sinful chil
dren. t ,
