8-T.IMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, m.) THURSDAY, AUG. 5, 1971 MR. AND MRS. TOM T1BBS OF TOM'S Flowerand Gift Shop, Lincoln and Mt. Pulaski. in cooperation with the Logan County Abra- ham Lincoln Heritage Foundation, are the sponsors of a historic picture by Lloyd Osten- dorf depicting Mr. Lincoln's funeral train stop- ping at the Lincoln railroad station on May 3, 1865. An arch constructed over the railroad tracks reads "With malice toward none, wRh charity for all." A group of women dressed in white trimmed in black, sing a Requiem for their beloved fri,:nd and neighbor. Abraham Lincoln. The night-long trip from Chicago to Spring- field was the most poignant of all the journey's separate parts, for on the welcome banners displayed at the illuminated depots along the tracks there began to appear - over and over - the word "HOME" - "COME HOME" - "'BEAR HIM HOME TENDERLY" - and "HOME IS THE MARTYR". At Atlanta. Illinois, the sun came up over the prairie at five o'clock. Emotions deepened again as the town of Lincoln was reached at 7 a.m. The air was soft and fresh after last nighrs rain and birds were singing. This was the town that actually had been named for President Lirtcoln -- but long ago. when he, as a lawyer for his friends Colonel Latham and John Dean Gillctt. drew up tile papers incorporating land that the Colonel had bought and laid out as a town. And the Colonel and John Dean Gillctt said they had decided to call the place Lincoln. Together they had smashed and eaten a ripe watermelon to christen it. .A.tTB T'r In/ IlMttf iflmlooe (Contloued front page 3) 'uaker ia Kenncy M. E. rc at 9:30, back here for 10:30 service.
