Some men do their best. <*yen their best friends. The premiums on dishonesty are money and sorrow. Falls City is to have a glove and mitten tactory, maybe. The real philosopher is the man who realizes without swear ing that he is burning more coal this winter than last. On another page ot this issue will be fouml a fac-sitnile of a letter Abraham Lincoln wrote to our townsman, Isham iteavis. The imprint of honesty and right living is almost always to be read in a man's face. Oc casionally. of course, a typo graphical error is made, but not often. A jury of twelve men wen asked Tuesday where they had read about the Drainage case and nine out of the twelve said that they had seen it in The Tribune. Very large percent, eh! 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. KNOCK OR BOOST? 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 on the part of the boosters they can land a glove and mitten fac tory here. The chronic knock ers can do their part by keeping still. 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. ABRAHAM LINCOLN 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 Washington. 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 all.” THE TASK THAT NEEDED GOD 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 ured to hard farm hand labor— 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* of two centuries, the mi.lions of black animals, would be prom ised their freedom it the Confed eracy did not surrender by tlie first of the year. And it he made the promise he would keep it. A terrible power was in his bands. That stroke of liis pen might ruin these United States with all | the future millions on millioi s 1 of human souls! 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 using in the Nineteenth Cen. tury. He determined, once and for all, that come de. th or de feat, he would go forth on the morrow and issue his Procla mation. The slaves would be free!" ; CiEHLINIi THEATRE ]i ONE NIGHT FRIDAY.
