    Lincoln observed it. Water is another, more healthful option. He was the true model of the Christian character as set forth in the sermon on the mount. In defending the women, their attorney seemed to evince little tact, and this fact prompted one of the defendants to ask Lincoln to say a few words to the jury, if he thought he could aid their cause.

His power of mimicry was very great. The keenness of Lincoln's own sense of humor was due in large degree to his intimate knowledge of men. Everybody could under- stand him.
