For example, do you remember who said, "I do the very best I know how, the very beat I can: and I mean to keep doing so" . . .? The man who authored that creed had many heartbreaking reverses. In his time, many classed him a f alure. His record showed a business failure in '31 . . defeated for Legislator in '32 . . another business failure in '33 . . elected to Legislature in '34 . . his sweetheart died in '35 . . he had a nervous breakdown in '36 . . defeated for Speaker in '38 . . defeated for Elector in "40 . . again defeated for Congress in '43 . . finally elected to Congress in '48 but then defeated for the Senate in '55. Finally, in '60, he was elected PRESIDENT! A failure? NO. A success? Certainly. Who was the man who lived through the frustrations, the despair of so many defeats? Who was the man who proved, there is no such thing as lasting defeat for one who strives to succeed? The immortal Abraham Lincoln! . . . MRS. BUDDY HOWARD, HOWARD FUNERAL SERVICE.
