tb ruined and silent temples of ancient

many of these nations that bare passed
lot tbe abyss of eternity, we behold today
newer and better nations, and though there
bare been ages of darknses and tears and
heartacAea. yet we believe that this bid
sorrow laden bark of humanity has been
slowly moving and la still moving through
this panoramic sea of history, toward a
harbor of universal Hberty and brotherhood
tor man.
There are some names that rise hither
and higher m tbe estimation ef me as the
world moves on; Instead ef fading, their
achievements become more and mora lumi

succeeding generation. It Is in one of these
brilliant constellations that we see ihio

Cromwell waa whoJly unselfish. Ia a
lener written in 1ST, uhen the burden of
the English government was resting so
heavily npoa hia shoulders, when he trod
the winepress alone, he said: "It ha been
heretofore a matter of philosophical die
course that a great position, a great
authority is a great burden, but I know
it ia" taring tbeae days be often re
marked concerning the peac that was his
when amid the quiet fens of the Ousa One
say be said, with bis head bowed ia sad
ness: 1 can say ia the presence ef Al
mighty God. ia comparison ws ar all like
i poor creeping ants upon tbe earth, that I
had rather have lived in my fields and have
kept my flock than to have undertaken
such a government aa this."

a kingdom that I tcw only by the warrior
