hcritage confcained within them.
Lincolni Gettysburg Address was, in
time, noted all over tlie world and
translated into thirty languages. It
had a profound influence. The ereed,
‘ of the people, by the people, for the
people,” has suffered in parts of the
world with changing generations and
political philosophies. Ybt, Lincoln’s
words stand as a beacon for all who
would liarken and heecl. And the man
himself, more perhaps than any eth-
er American, belongs to the people of
the whole world.
When Abraham Lincoln was a
young man he ran for the Legislature
in Illinois and was badly beaten. He
next entered business, failed, and spent
17 years of his life paying up the
debts of a worthless partnerů
He fell in love with aJJ beautiful
■young woifian to whom he became en-
gaged — then she died.
Entering polifcics, he ran for Con-
gress and was solidly defeated. He
then tried to get an appointment to
the United States Land Office, but
He became a candidate for the Unit-

In, 1856 he became a candidate for
the vice presidency and was again de-
feated. In 1858 he lost to Douglas.
But, in the láce of all this defeat
and failure, he eventually achieved
the highest suceess attainable in life
and undying fame to the end of time.
There are many parallels in the an-
nals of life insurance salesmanship;
the ono who was denied a contract by
one company only to write multi-mil-
iions for another; the person with his
career interrupted by a heart attack
who came back to better liealth and
more success than ever before.
If you think positively and persevere,
the straw that broke the camePs back.
might become the straw out of which
is built the brieks of a strong life.
In špite of many medioerities men-
tioned and affirmed. by his critics .—
why do the eenturies bring ever in-
creasing luster to this name so that
the very pronounccment of the words
“Abraham Lincoln” whose birthday
Vv:e observe February 12, is almost an
act of worship? Homespun, angular,
roughhewn, his face so homely that it
was beautiful, sculptured by heart dis-
aster; a home- that he ne vor went into
when he eouid go anywhere else, no
library in it, no cozy nook in it, walk-
ing the highway of life aione. In the
hour of his great erisis, taking that
Here’s what’s next.
