ir.L.. FEB. i*, i Utter. f.S, FLITCH**, T«-«i»t*iJM«»f«flrl»fl*«BW«- Abraham Lincoln. Thisia the MWtyr President's birthday aed as these birthdays of the great JSmancipator come round, reverence for bis memory increases. Lives and Incidents and side-lights on the life of. this noble man Continue to add to the appreciation Of his character. The'en tire world is .beginning to acknowledge that the place the martyred President holds In history is an exalted one, that no public man of any country can occupy a higher place, and that no man was overmaster of a greater crisis In the world's history. His whole life is a continued inspiration to every youth in the land. His afewasastruggles.Qrst with poverty and then the questions of the day that hedetermihed to master, and lastly with the life and death of a great Nation; , His patriotism was unbounded. No one can doubt a single act of his. No one can question the motive. He was for his country and his days and nights were filled with anxiety and sorrow forher welfare. Some of his patriotic utterances are gems, models of loyalty and love of country. What is sweeter in the patriotic literature than his short Gettysburg speech, delivered- November 19, 18(53! Every school boy should commit it to memory; it is so exquisite. Here it is;——- '—• —-——^—-1—r—^-——- "Fourscoreand seven years ago our rfathers^broughtforth on this continent 'a new Nation, conceived in liberty and 'dedicated to the proposition that all meh are'created equal. Now we are •engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that Nation 'or any na- mon so conceived and'so dedicated cau IonK*endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that faeld as -a • final resting place for those who here aave their lives that that Nation might five. Itis altogether fitting and prop- ft that we should do this. But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot: hallow this ground. The brave men living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor pow• «r to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we aay here: but it can never forget what they did here. It Is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have, thus far so nobly advanced, "JttTis rather for us~to be here~dedicated , to the great task remaining before us: that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for •which they gave the last full measure <jf devotion; that we .here highly re-1 thft thftnHaH • -solve tha1rthese-desd-shall-norh"87rB-]-^ r , died in vain; that this Nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by * the people and for the peqple shall not 'perish-from the earth. This is Lincoln, a man of unassailable honesty, of extra.ordina.ry mental vision and of profound .faith in the guidance of Providence. Our boys can not follow him with too close a reverence; they cannot cherish him with too holy a feeling a'nd they should be taught to feel that a thorough study of. bis life will add chatacter and dignity to their lives, ..',.•/ •3, rn n mb*r °* ft **«*trt of j i t , H ,.40j fn {jirrjj BTJ 1 ! h<? i y ui^ronsinsf tf>ubi«s OT to MB -Km, ami in his letter recitM the facts ..r his Ill-health, bia eatrtlnuona service f T nearly three years, with only short absences on account of wounds,returning before be was fully recovered, the •mogerof his losing all his property, «nd;tbat he could be spared from tils regiment, which waa f nl!y officered with excellent men. Thereupon, his resignation was accepted* " i - ,, . There was some misunderstanding of this by Caster, who assumed that Alger had been absent without leave, and as Ouster wns never very judicial-minded he at once recommended that he be dismissed. This went to Division and Corps Headquarters, where it received the formal indorsements of Merrltt andTorbert. When it reached Army Headquarters Sheridan put on It a very relubtant Indorsement, in which be spoke of Alger's previous good service. When this came to Washington It was returned with the endorsement that Col. AlKer was out of the service, his resignation having been accepted before Ouster's action; —----- ( " r • Alger did not know of Ouster's action until a .quarter of a century after, and it was a great surprise to him, for Ouster had always been his warm eulogist. - .; Practical Versus Metaphysical Economics. " Gunton's Magazine of American economics and polltlal science for February, contains as usual nearly a dozen of short articles on practical economics. In the paper on "Practical Versus Metaphysical Economics" the author says: ; * Whatever may be true of other sciences, it cannot be said of economics that "it is its own excuse for being." The study of ecomics Is little, better than waste of time unless it contributes to the practical solution of social problems. Economists should be the afif.idp'jfeA by th* . s4mln!««trftlion monfiy *>h»,Jl borrowed for the first Urn* PSncfj 19*50 to maintain the8t»ts Institutions ars<i en-" able JlHnols to meet curren obligations. It is ascertained that last year the grain ofiice In Chicago was R hospital for the maintenance of AHgeld followers whom he thought desirable to place npon a pay rol!. when^fee wanted to bribe cotnraltteemen witb places he opened the doar of the grain office. The civil service in his hands waa ptos- tituted In the name of the party for thejbenefit of Altgeld a proceeding which is sometimes forgiven the successful politician, but never permitted the man apon- whose movements disaster attend. It was with Altgeld as Mackethsaid: "The attempt and not the deed confounds him." " • Just so long as the Democratic party in Cook county shall continue to ac-. cept the dictum of Altgeld, the marplot and maligner, Just so long will it continue to meet defeat. The methods of the man are dishonest and his capacities of a public character are wholly destructive: During his entire term as governor of Illinois his labor was for the destruction of the Democratic, party that It might be snceeded by some form of socialism with which he waa as always really in sympathy. Altgeld has led the Democratic party into a bog from which the party Itself may under some other leadership extricate Itself. Under him It will flounder on and finally sink through— • A gulf profound as that SerbonUn bOR, Betwixt Damlttta and Mount Oaslns old, Where armies whole ha?e sunk. Ths attendauG« »t the wsmlnn of Lee County Institute Association in Dlxon Tuesday eteaing was remarkably large. Interest is so intense ia the meeting that not only do large numbers of farmers attetjfl, bat many city folkfeare present at every session, Great good is certain to come from listening to the discussions of the various (Subjects talked upon in the meeting " end of promoting the opportunities and conditions for successful Industrial pursuits and social development. * . * * On the great questions affecting the very life of Nations, like money, banking, revenue, protection,- wages, etc., the influence of th'e economists, who ought to be experts, is'almost nil. There is probably not a college in this country nor in Europe where responsible Statesmen would think of going for serious consultation on any great measure of public policy. Why is this? It is not true of other branches of knowledge; why should it be true of economics ? In blblogy, physiology, chemistry, architecture, engineering, pedagogy and law, knowledge all leads to practical efficiency and social usefulness and the advice of the experts In all these departments is sought on all important occasions, whereas, in economics ,it Is avoided or rejected with the feeling and not infrequently with the statement, "they are thoerists." The others are all theorists, too; indeed it is because they are theorists that they are called in to pass'upon the wisdom of undertakings in which the correct theory alone is adequate to furnish a reliable opinion. Then why are economists rejected? The real reason is this: In the other departments of knowledge a constructive rela studied; Old Soldier Death Bate. The Galesburg Mall speaking of the death rate of old soldiers says: • A Washington correspondent nays the Grand Army is dying at the rate of a hundred a, day, Every fifteen minutes of the twenty-four hours the final taps sounds for some one, who wore the blue. Each year puts under the sod more old soldiers than there are enlisted men and officers in the entire United States army. Time i* Carrying them successful farmers in the State and their version of, special wbrk on the farm is worthy of careful consideration. The fieep interest and profound study which the audience accords each speaker speaks wejl for the intelligence and thought of Lee County farmers. As a rule, they are always anxious t<- learn and advance, and "ere earnest In their study of farm topics, This meet-; ing affords vast opportunities' which they grasp with ; a i? llllngneas Ich&we- teriatlc of them. / , The session continued until Wednesday evening, In the morning Prof. A, G, Holden, of the University of Illinois, gave a fine talk on '.'Cropping Without Crippling." The paper was discussed at length. Then followed au exhaustive treatise on "The Hog as a Source of Front" by Hon v A! J. Lovejoy, of Kosooe. E.. 3. Frusman's witty, but valuable address on ."Corn- Culture and its Commercial Products" was enjoyed and waa frequently applauded. f Quite a lively time was held at the institute in the afternoon In the election of officers for the ensuing year. J.' L. Hartwell moved that thecjfilcers for the next year be elected from the various .townships in the county and not elected all from Dlxon. He stated that York cm tbti llv« !n Mount \>r«0ti, ntid Mftyor $s cms of the funniest of the Sot. lJ^ merer has .darad. to be qttite so-fanny asf'he could, tat he has taxefl the lives irtd waistcoats of his fellow-cUteeBd by coining pretty close to the limit of face- tionsness.

The tendency has been to s^udy economics from hypothetical rather than actual phenomena, and so 1 find out what would occur under conditions that never exist, and practically create a world in which nobody lives, by eliminating nearly all the phenomena that modify and mould human conduct. Thus, abstract principles are arrived at which, if true, would render no aid in dealing with practical problems. Hence, so many economists, instead of being leaders of social progress, are logical anarchists and advocates, of the doctrine of do-nothingism. . GOVERNOR TANNER has appointed 0. E.

Alger for Secretary of War, many Democratic papers are making a vicious attack on •his war record. Some of them going so far as to say that President McKinley must rescind his action and appoint somebody other than Gen/ Alger." . The National Tribune gives the following in regard to the General's war 1 record: • » A number of the baser sort of papers are making a villainous attack upon <Jeo. Russell A. Alger's war, record. The allegation is that he left his command in the face of the enemy and in the middle of the campaign; also, that Gens, Sheridan, Torbert, Merritt and Caster recommended his dismissal. The plain facts are that the records ebovr that Gen. Algor had served nearly three years with «onspicous courage and zeal. ;He' had eagaged in sixty* seven battles find skirmishes, had been twice wounded, and had everywhere shown each gallantry and ability aa to .isiafor hira the highest approval of fate sBjerlor officers.

The Democratic Chicago Chronicle speaks as follows of the effect of Gov. Altgeld's leadership of,his party. : As a result of John P. Altgeldte leadership of the Democratic party in Illinois that party demoralized, disintegrated and defeated, is not represented in a single administrative office in Cook county and hardly in any oflice of the Statir. Never was the party so unhappily demoralized, sa signally defeated, us under .the leadership of this malign person, whose Incapacity for affairs 'has been demonstrated in both his public and his private career. Greedy for rjchee, he embarked In private speculations, and to sustain himself has not hesitated, .though professing to be the most honest of officials, to trifle with public trust funds, and while he has endeavored to the utmost of his ability ty enroll himself in the class of millionaires and has insisted as a landlord upon gold leases he has gone to • the public with the'mountebank's cry that accumulated wealth in this country seeks the destruction of personal liberty. He wan elected Governor In 1898 by s majority in Cook county of more than 80,000, <, He waa defeated In Cook county by a majority of more than 40,000 in 1890. - .; . •-,.•'.. The democratic'party in Cook suffered ite first defeat when Governor Altgeid witb malign purpose prompt" ed by personal hatred and temperamental objection to law apd order, tu- elstesii that there should be no recognition of Judge Gary, whom/the party before the advent-of of AHgeld bad nominated for judge without a question. And the people, incensed at this stupidity and craft, defeated every candidate upon the democratic ticket except one. From that day tolhi«, Altgeld. has bees in f«H charge of the democracy, and disaster has followed disaster under bis leadership.

Each of these three gentlemen is a practical joker of the harmless variety. Their latest is a' chair with a hole in it, through which a needle may be worked by pulling a cord in a remote corner of the room.' When the needle does its work cpnnection is made with an electric bell and the jerk of the cord fires off a small cannon. The individual who feels the needle and simultaneously hears the bell ring and the explosion of the cannon is, to say the least, disturbed for a.^mpment The game has been worked successfully a number of times, but the three jokers' met their Waterloo Wednesday afternoon. ; ' *••, An innocentKappearing individual sauntered into the oflice on that 4»te and.complaoently seated himself in the fatal chair.
