largest church of this denomination ii :
"Daniel Webster" was D. Waters
subject and the life of that great mar
was thoroughly described by Mr. Wa
ters. Much of the time after the civl !
war was gone over by the speaker
and Daniel Webster got credit for the
doing and undoing of the days of war
The civil war , he declared , was the
result of the teachings of two grcai
men , Webster and Calhoun. While
Webster taught the young man of the
north to say "I am an American , " Cal
houn taught the young man of the
south to say , " 1 nm a Kentuckian or :
am a North Carolinian. "
"It is the speaking voice that rulei
the \vorld , " declared Dr. Waters , "am
it is the speaking voice that alwayi
will rule it. "
A pathetic word picture was madi
by Dr. Waters of the decorations o
the graves of the dead soldiers , tei
years after the war. Decoration da ;
then , he said , was not celebrated llk <
it is now. There were no picnics. Tin
graves were decorated with the Hewers
ers grown in the gardens of the homes
The decorating was quiet and then
was much praying. The music wai
ic national hymn and often the hlgl
all was scaled and the graves there
oo , were decorated , while the bam
layed "Dixie. "
"After the war , the world may havi
aid thnt Daniel Webster had con
uered , " said Dr. Waters. "Webster'
ooks had been almost a bible to th <
lountalneers of the south.1'

"There are no failures except morn
allures. No matter what the failur
