CRESCENT PHOTO SHOP LINCOLN'S FIRST SPEECH ABRAHAM LINCOLN This man whose homely face you look upon, Was one of Nature's masterful, great men; Born with strong arms, that unfought battles won, Direct of speech, and cunning with the pen. Chosen for large designs, he bad the art Of winning with his humor, and he went straight to his mark, which was the human heart; Wise, too, /or what he could not break he bent. Upon his back a more than Atlas-load, The burden of the Commonwealth, was lald; He stooped, and rose up to it, though the road Shot suddenly downward, not a whet dis- mayed.

LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG A Classic that will Never Die February 12th being the 117th att- niversary of tile birth of Abrahatu LincolI[, it is befitting that his wo:'ld- famous address at Getty'sburg should be repeated, h has become an Eng- lish classic, and is worthy of careful reading and c,msideration: Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this conti- nent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated 1o tile proposition that all meu are created equal. N,,w we are engaged in a great civil Lincoln's first speech is interesting to ns now. Some of his friends thot he wouht be a good candidate for the legislature, and so they had hint plac- ed in nomination. He came from his home to the country ]own where he was to meet his Ollponent. As he came near the place lie passed the house where his antagonist lived. Ire saw froln the roof of the dwelling a thin spire of irwin, and asked : "\Vhat'sthat ?" "Oil," said his friend, "that's a lightning rod," and he explained what it was for. It was the first Mr. Lin- cob! had ever seen, and he thought over it a great deal before his turn came to speak. His opponent was the first to oc- cupy the platform, and he addressed the audience by saying that tie hoped they wouht not throw him over for this unknown, and with when( they were not acquainted, wtto had come up there front the wilderness. Mr. I, incohl then arose and said: "l:riemls, you don't know very much about me. 1 haven't had all the ad- vantages that some of you have had; but, if you did knbw everything abottt me that vt,n might know, you wouhl be sure that there was nothing in my character that made it necessary to put em my house a lightning-rod to save me from the jnst ven~:eance of Almighty G~d."

It is for us, the living, rath'er to be dedi- cated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task reutaining before us--that from these honored dead we take in- creased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly re- soke that these dead shall not have (lied iu vain--that this nation uuder God shall have a new birth of free- (hnn--and that governnlent of the peo- ple, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth. THE CATALINA ISLANDER WOMEN OF AMERICA I have never studied the art of pay- ing complintents to women, but I nmst say that if all that has been said by orators and poets, since the creation of the world, hi praise of womeu were applied to the women of America, it would not do them justice.--Abrahaln Lincoln. dera, September 23-25; Los Angeles, at Ponlona, September 27-October 2; Shasta, at Anderson, Seluember 30- October 2.
