The State Historical Society
appreciates the articles we are
printing under the head of “Re
miniscences of a Wayfarer” to
the extent that they are using
an extra copy for scrap book
purposes each week.
Every citizen of Falls City and
vicinity will soon be confronted
with an opportunity to either
knock or boost.
There is a move under way
whereby with the proper elTort

There's a gentleman from Nel
son, Neb., figuring with the Com
mercial Club, and we understand
that all he asks on the part of
the Club is the co-operation
along the line of labor. If they
can contract enough employees
the gentleman from Nelson will
do the rest.
Come on now! Get busy! It's
not necessary to point out the
whys or wherefores. That it
would be a good thing for Falls
City goes without saying.
Worthily have the American
people joined in an appropriate
celebration oi the Lincoln cen
tenary, and extended it to the
remotest corners of the land.
It is the one hundredth anni
versary of the birth of Abraham
Lincoln. This date is observed
with solemn and yet grateful
ceremony by the whole Ameri
can people, who owe more to
Lincoln than to any other citi
zen of the republic, save only
Lincoln is, after Washington,
the greatest figure in our na
tional history. No other man
performed services so great as
his, or was so high a character.
His conduct during the trying
days of the civil war, when the
union that had been founded
with high hopes for human li
berty seemed destined to be de
stroyed, was such as to appear
inspired by a power greater than
human, and many an American
has thanked God in his nightly
prayers that so wise, gentle,
forbearing a leader had been
raised up by divine direction to
guide the country to safety. His
death was a great calamity, not
less to the south than to the
north; lor, if Lincoln bad been
spared, his qualities of heart
and mind would have made the
task of reconstruction much
easier than it proved and would
have healed the wounds of war
much sooner.
The south will join with the
north in observing Lincoln's one
hundredth birthday, for nyw, in
these latter days his memory is
as deeply beloved south of Mu
; son and Dixon’s line as north of
it. The celebration is worthy
to be remembered as an expres
I sion of the gratitude and affec
tion of a great people
When we once resolve to lay
aside desire to make of I Lincoln’s
life and words an arsenal from
which to draw weapons with
which to tight for special causes,
and consider with quiet thought
Abraham Lincoln as all Ameri
cans know lie w»as, we find the
materials ample.
We see Al>raham Lincoln as a
homely, kindly, patient man,
who loved his country as men
love their mothers. We see him
seeking the welfare of all that
mother’s sons because lie was
one ol them. We see him work
ing humbly and patiently under
burdens such as no American
before, save Washington, and
none since, has been caJled upon
to bear.
We see him always charitable,
realizing that in this human
world men are moved by all sorts
of motives, and appealing to all
motives that in honesty and
honor he could, asking only that
the results of the appeals be acts
helping to save and restore to
peace the nation mother.
And so Abraham Lincoln
wrought with the tools at hand,
never complaining of their hu
man imperfections, using to his
great end not only the noblest
aspirations of the best but every
force of human desire, and thus
delivering a race from bondage
and saving a nation because he
ever wrought “with malice to
ward none and with charity tor
In the February Circle Maga
zine this is the way James Op
penheimer pictures Lincoln the
night before the signing of the
Emancipation Proclamation
“He knew how well he knew
at that moment how little a
part he was playing. Something
behind all things something
beneath all things the vast
power and Love were working
oui in America the liberation of
the toilers of humanity. And
he? He, the common man the
boy born ot “white trash,” poor
whites in Kentucky the boy in

the poor country lawyer Old
Abe—the rail splitter yes he
smiled grimly to himself though
on a throne, he was still a com
mon man same old stuff same
old Abe same old loaier and
joker and comrade. He hail a
Napoleon's position and power.
He laughed at himself. How
poorly Napoleon's shoes fitted
his big feet.
And then he thought again of
his Proclamation. It was safely
waiting in some desk drawer.
Which? He forgot which. He
was pretty shiftless about things
and tin- old Proclamation might
be in his hat band for all he
knew. For a moment it Hashed
across his miud that this Proc
lamation might lead to his own
downfall, his disgrace. Was
the country ready for it? It
was a daring act, and he had to
do it alone. No one else could
share the responsibility. Atone
stroke of the hand of one man
and that man himself theslave*

black animals, would be prom

He lay for some time staring
inio the darkness. Hut up and
up he looked, as if he saw God.
And then into his breast ng
heart, his shattered soul, a flood
of light seemed to be poured: it
streamed into him; it swept
through him; the room seemed
charged with spirit. Making
him tingle, came the divine glo
ry. He felt strong: he felt buo
pant: he felt sure. It was the
sacred moment. He knew now
he would go on with the task
until it was ended. He knew
now that Hod was with him.
He knew now that he was the
tool which < bid's great hand was

for all, that come de. th or de

morrow and issue his Procla
