JUDSOft HARMON, OF
THE LA NO LEY PENSION BILL.
Under the above title, the Louisville Times pays its respects to
our Congressman, Mr. duo. AY. Langley, in the following: manner:
'"The distinguished statesman, who represents the Tenth Ken
tucky district in Congress prophesies the early enactment of his bill
to add $40,00U,000 annually to the petitions now being paid out. bv i
grateful Government. If his prophecy is confirmed, no individual
and the descendant of no individual, so geographically fortunate as to
live north of Mason and Dixon's line in the prior between 1SG1-G5,
need suffer want.
"Under the bill, any Federal soldier who served ninety days,
whether he saw active service or not, is entitled to a pension ranging
from cl 5 to 53G a month, provided he has reached the age of sixty
two. Should he have passed that age he is entitled to back pay. The
total amount of the pension payment for last year was $1G2.000,000.
The measure which Mr. Langley is so hopeful of seeing passed would
bring the total up to $20-2,000,000 annually.
"The war ended forty-five years ago. That any deserving sol
dier has failed in that length of time to receive full linancial recom
pense for disability resultant from service in that war, or that his
family in the case of his death, has been denied liberal aid, is incon
ceivable. That the pension roll is crowded with fakes and impostors
is an open scandal of years standing. Mr. Langley proposes to make
this scandal worse bv adding forty millions a year to the graft fund,
by which the advocates of a protective tariff have nrwaged to keep it
at war ligures through the aid of a standing army of pensioners. The
Langley scheme, like all others of its kind, is a chcme not for the
benefit of the survivors of the army that was mustered out almost half
a century ago, but to till up the ranks of mercenaries who can be
counted on to vote the Republican ticket as long as the country can be
lade to pay them for it.
"The Democratic party is preparing to smite the protective
a riff hip and thigh. It cau make no better beginning than with Mi.
..angley's pension bill, which is the hip hooray part of the tariff
THE OLD YEAR AND THE NEW.
The old year is now past history the new, a reality. The past
vear brought prosperity and happiness to many and sorrow to not a
few. Lik'ethe average run of humanity, we have had our share of
each, but in summing it up, we could not help regretting that we
were compelled to part company with 1910; yet we welcome the new
year, with its bright prospects, its increased opportunities and its
great unknown future. We are optimistic enough to believe it has
much in store for mankind. In our feeble way, we can accomplish
but little at best, but the fleeting moments linger with us long enough
for us to do good, if we will, and thus make the community better bv
havinsr had us in it, as citizens.
Every reader and friend began the new year with our sincere
gratitude for past favors and with our earnest hope that 1911 may
contain 3G5 days of unlimited joy and success for one and all.

A defendaut charged with boating

day before, Magistrate Frcschi in
the MorrUanin (X. Y.) police court.
The complainant was seemingly bad

defendant and asked him what he
had to say for himself. "Your
honor." he answered, "1 can prove
that I did that in self-independence."
After the laughter in the
courtroom had suicided the youthful
magistrate added: "I guess that

The curved bridges of Japan are
of three kinds: Those known as
spectacle bridges, with an arch in
the center suggesting a pair of spec
tacles ; the camelback bridges, which
go up very high ; the ordinary, one
arch, semicircular bridges. The rea
son the Japanese so often have
curved bridges is because until mod
ern times they could not build them
flat, and even today there is no key
stone to the Japanese arches. Thev
are not generally familiar with the

SMALLNESS WITH MONEY.
Women sometimes are email and
exacting in their labor requirements,
expect much service for inadequate
wage; but in the home they ordi
narily have not the handling of
much money, and a few dollars as

come to hand them over for work
