abilities and qualities that were almost
unique. ills conversational powers
were exceptional, and he could enter

loses one of its oldest and best-known relationship to the accused.
His historical knowledge of local poli
tics, and candidates for office made him
a local paragon; and he was the center
of a group of devoted friends who spent
the eventide of their lives In "living
over" again the imperishable memories
of the days of "auld lang syne," a
group which alas, is rapidly thinning;
one by one of them q detly "wrapping
the drapers of hib couch about him and
lying down to pleasant dreams."
In his beloved city of Hardinsburg,
with its quaint, a'most old world-like
surrouudings, and suggestive of that
princely culture of tho Kentucky of the
olden davs, the Judge will be 'misled;
and another of those "homes" the
priceless oases of the order changes

the most delightful men that it has
ever been our good fortune to know.
