it would have been much less dan-

him to have called Mr. I. a,

he had used this tact he would not
have laid himself open to ridicule.
Secondly, may I suggest that Mr.

suppositions of the religious con-

Twelfth Night works by simplifica-

Elements in Judge Lane's biog-

story of Abraham Lincoln. Born
in a small town, Judge Lane pre-
pared himself for earning a-liveli-
hood by completing a University1
course in engineering. He could not
restrain, however, his natural bent
for law and soon entered the Law
school, and was graduated in 1878.
