A GREAT LIGHT GOES OUT.
. The light of a kindly, gracious personality has
' gone out in the death of that illustrious Kentuck-
ian, Senator Bradley. Even amidst his failing

It was Senator Bradley who always remembered
the birthday of his friends and was the host -and
chief entertainer at enmities little homelike cel
ebrations in their honor. Children clung to him
L"$ with devotion. His two closest chums were the
small son and daughter of Representative John W.
Langley, who lived just across the street from him.
At bis last birthday, a few weeks ago, the rooms of
the famous Kentuekiau both at the Capitol and at
Falkstone Court -were crowded with flowers aiuL,
( souvenirs and greetings.
N6body could tell" a story belter than Senator
Bradley, or sing a folklore song or dance a clog
dance. There was magic in his lingers when he
picked up his trusty banjo and guitar and twanged
away at the good old home-grown tunes.
"When Senator Bob Taylor, on his fiddle, and
Senator Bill Bradley, on his guitar, got together
and -wove "My Old Kentucky Home," between
them, eyes grew misty and hearts glowed.
Now, in another home, not made' with hands, the
two earthly chums are blending chords in the great

SAVINGS BANK DEPOSITS.
Never in my experience have I had to inform so
many persons of the limit of deposits on which we
pay interest," said tho receiving teller of one of
the largest savings banks in New York. "In the
last few weeks several dozen accounts reached the
$3,000 limit and some of them were started a com
paratively short time ago. New accounts arc in
creasing in number every week. Thrift among all
classes seems to have increased tremendously dur
ing the past year."
DOO LANDIS SAYS: SHOOT MAN
WHO ROOKS BOAT.
The man who rocks the boat received the editor
ial attention of Health Officer Landis, in tho Health
Bulletin, "Wednesday. He said :
"The silly season. has arrived for the man who
rocks the boat. His friends should see to it that the
attack of simples is cut short in the incipient stage.
Tho village cut-up is one of the numerous varieties
of men said to be'nceessary to make up tho world.
On dry ground he is an encumbrance; in a boat
'he is a dangerous nuisance. Having exhausted the
supply of unloaded guns in his community, he turns
lightly to aquatic sports for diversion.
"His sense of humor is peiverted and calls for
revision. Appoint yourself a committee of one to
"Self-preservation is the first law of nature. Up
to dnto it has not been declared unconstitutional.
Enforce it until you have been served with a writ
of injunction. '

words of protest and the terror of women and chil
dren. The appeal should be direct; one that he can
