That story about a joint debate be
tween Fletcher and Catts at Orlando
Feb. 10 was a false alarm. We thought
so when we first heard it. For one
thing, Fletcher is too busy to come to
Florida now; for another, we doubt
that Catts could be induced to meet
the senator in debate. Fletcher would
make him look like a scarecrow.
THE O. H. S. CARNIVAL
ered 28 years. On the lDth day of j
April, 1837, he moved to Springfield,!
111., to take up the practice of law: on
the 15th of April, 18G3, he was killed
in Washington. The extent of time in ;
which he was a national figure was:
less than ten years, and for less than
five years he was a national power.
It may be said that half a century
of preparation preceded his five years
byof service and martyrdom. And his
preparation wa sof the simplest, and ;
thereby the profoundest sort. He!
studied in three books, and all of them
were volumes of the book of life. He!
studied the written scriptures of the'
Bible; he studied the living nature of j
men around him; he studied the law in if
which wise men have sought to bring!
justice out of the confusing maze of I
thoughtlessness and self-interest. And!
from his studies in all these books he
formed one basic conviction, namely,
that only the right thing wears long
est, only the right act serves longest,
only the right word guides longest. To
find the right thing and upon occas
ion to do it, was the whole policy of
Abraham Lincoln. And though in
politics he accepted the not too high
standards of his day accepted them
in the sense that he was not called to
oppose them he never cut any cor
ners; and the result, or one of the re
sults, was that the political standards
of his time conformed to him.
How great Lincoln was we never
shall know; of what spirit he was, and I
what the mystic background of his
nature. He never did or said any anything
thing anything sensational. His greatest words
were spoken when there was no gal gallery.
lery. gallery. People were always finding out
that he was a great man after he had
long passed by; they were always dis discovering
covering discovering that he had said a great
thing after they had nearly forgotten
what it was that he said. Most of his
policies were opposed and were never
approved until they were far along in
their operation and their wisdom' was
plain to all. After his death his spirit
lay like a steadying hand upon the na nation,
tion, nation, and after his own generation had
passed, the succeeding generations
began their commemorative works. It
needed no "drives" to fix the memory
of Lincoln in the minds of the people.
The great war came and relegated
many great names to the past of for-
getfulness. Many of the illustrious
dead were also casualties of this war,
for their character and wisdom did not
endure the testing of that time of
judgment. But Lincoln has survived.
His words were as true now as they
were before 1914. His service to his
people is not yet done. Of all the
great Americans, he is not only the
immortal, but the most active spirit
ual influence of them all.
