Leo the other day, on Ihc 125Ui itnni- versary of his birlli, it honored n man who has lonj? since ceased to bu exclusively ;i liero of the old south. The famous son of Virginia, leailur of llio lost ciiuse, belongs lo all the nut inn now; nntl the nation, if it is wise, will keep him on liis jjcdestnl for u long time. For Lee is quite unlike any of the other heroes in our milioniil gallery. AD Die others WITO .siiiTCSsftil; was, by ordinary material .stundtinls, a failure. His curcor 'wivs crowned with defeat jnuixMil of victory. And it is a tremendously good thing for us to have a IILTO of that kind in our pantheon. Success is n tiling we nil strive for, and it is only natural that we should. Our history and our environment, have compelled us to admire the success story. But we have overdone it. We have fallen into the habit of believing that material success, or the lack of it;.supplies llie'oiily giuigo by wiiicli a man's life can properly be measured. The Figure of Lee supplies u perfect corrective for this altitude. The man gave himself to a ciiuse that lost. He personified that cause. By sheer, dazzling brilliance he came within a hair's breadth of making it succeed;, in the end, when the remorseless, force of circumstances /was too mu'cirtor him, he went dou-n to defeat with it. All that lie had fought for vanished on the inarch to Appomattox. His own career was wrecked in the collapse of the Confederacy. And yet—failure or no, he was o:ic of the greatest of Americans, and he occupies a securer position eacli year. And his memory is a living proof of a profoundly important truth; that worldly success or failure, after all, count for very little. . You may remember a wnr-timo cartoon 1 in "Punch"; nn arrogant kaiser glowering down from war's desolation at ..",• rt of Belgium, (tiunling him "See—you've lost, everything!" And Albert replies. "Not my soul!" Better than Albert, Lee proves the eame point. And the man who can OUT OUR WAY make that reply has not, in the end, really lost anything. —Bruce Cation.
