Lincoln Anniversary. ,
Never before in the history of the
nation has. the anniversary of the
birth of Lincoln been so celebrated as
this year. The centennial Is bolng
made the occasion of innumerable re
views, discussions, and eulogies of
the martyred president's Hfo and
deeds extending over the entire coun
try. Everywhere Lincoln and the
principles lor which ho stood are be
ing made the subject of writers and
speakers. Sentiments strikingly fine
in their appreciation of the man and
his work have been offered and will
continue to be offered until the day
Especially are the universities of
the country offering homage to u
man whom they all recognize to be
one of the greatest of all Americans.
Throughout, the nation the disciples
of higher education are showering
praise and commendation upon the
man who himself never know the
touch of college training. Lincoln
was not a college man, and yet in
his success in .remaining steadfast-. to
principle, university men everywhere
recognize those qualities which it is
the highest duty of the college to
inspire. It is on this account that
the life of Lincoln is today being hold
beforo thousands of American col
lege students with phrases, of eulogy
Darwin Great Scientist.
While in America the Lincoln cen
tennial is far overshadowing that of
Darwin, the opposite is the case in
other nations. In England and on the
Continent the anniversary of the
birth of the groat English scientist
is being given a remembrance juat
as great in degree as that which

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this
continent a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the prop
osition that all men are crdated free and oqunl. Now we are engaged
In a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so con
ceived and so dedicated, can long endure. Wo are met on a groat
battlefield of that war. We have come to dedlcato a portion of that
field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that
that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and- proper that we
should do this. But in a larger sense wo' can not dedicate, we can not
consecrate, we can not hallow, this ground. The brave men, living and
dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our power to
add. or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember, what wo
say here, but it can never forget what they did hero. . It is for us, the
living, rathqr to be dedicated here to the unfinished work "which they
who fought ;hero have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us
to be hero dedicated to the great task remaining before us, that from
these honored dead we take increased devotion to that 'cause for which
they gave the' laBt full measure of devotion; that we here highly resolve
that these dead shall .not have died in vain, that this nation, under God,
W l 3 V
shall have a' new birth of freedom, and that the government of the people1?! i ,,
by the people, and for tho people, shall not perish from the earth. '",.: '.;nJi
