Another costly and shocking defeat. "You are on the road to hell, sir, with this govern- ment" is'the remark attributed to Ben Lincoln to remove Grant, who was soon to capture Vicks- burg. And the year of Gettysburg and Vicksbure was also the year ot :he draft riots.

This old' history, and mucfi more than is here'briefly glanced at, has is lessons. It "reminds Americans of defeats and bickerings and divided counsels aud hearts sjck .with; hope deferred. It reads like stories from :he land of spirits that attempts were nade by some of Lincoln's familiars to dissuade him from calling for 100 additional soldiers in July, 1S84, on the ground that such a measure would" imperil his election. He was unpopular enough already. While no statesman the Lincoln- calibre is visible in Europe, it is well o recall tho popular impatience with Lincoln.

Under God, I hope t never will end until that time." NO DOUBT ABOUT HIS PRAYER Dr. Francis L.
