LIFE OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN.

HE filled the Nation's eye and heart,

An honored, loved, familiar name;

So much a brother, that his fanie Seemed of vur lives i common part.

Ilis towering figure, sharp and spare,

Was with such nervous tension strung,

As if on each strained sinew swung The burden of a people's care.

His changing face what pen can.draw?

Pathetic, kindly, droll, or stern;

And with a glance so quick to learn The inmost truth of all he saw.

Prune found no idle space to spawn

Her fancies in liis busy mind;

His worth-ike health or air-could find No just appraisal till withdrawn.

He was bis Country's - not his own!

He had no wish but for her weal;

Nor for himself could think or feel But as a laborer for her throne.

Her flag upon the heights of power,

Stainless and unassailed to place

To this one end his earnest face
Was sent through every burdened hour.

Charles G. Hepine.
