The brilliant eloquence, sparkling wit, and terse declarations that characterize Col. Ingersoll's speeches, are as well-known to the American public as are the truths couched in his beautiful language practically useful to mankind. His address to "The Farmers, on Farming," his great speech to the “Veteran Soldiers," his oration on the “Declaration of Independence,” his nomination of James G. Blaine for the Presidency, his funeral discourse at his brother's grave, his matchless "Eulogy on Abraham Lincoln," all of which, and many others are herein presented, are among the best speeches ever delivered by man, and together form a most entertaining and valuable library book.

Many of his great political speeches are also presented, the scope of which include the practical questions of the day, such as the Tariff, Protection, Free Trade, Hard Money, Capital and Labor, ete., etc.

Religious discussions of every kind have been carefully ignored.

J. B. MCCLURE.
