Things are happening so rapidly
in the world to-day that we would
not be surprised to hear that some
aviator had skimmed the cream off
the Milky Way.
A man who gave the name "Ben
jamin Franklin" has been arrested
in a raid on an alleged dope ring.
But then you see,, even great men's
names are not protected by copy
right. In the midst of a hard, grinding
day, no matter what your station in
life may be, it is awfully satisfying
and comforting to think suddenly
that some pal somewhere is loving

The headline in the daily "papers,
"264 Republicans Released From
Prison," caused irritation and alarm
among many Kentucky Democrats

hand in it.
If it were no,t for the gossips the
country newspapers would have a
better chance to spread abroad the
happening of the hour, the day or
the week. What kind of a chance

A very ordinary Paris man made
the following .very wise observa

lived nearly sixty years now, and I
have made up my mind that in

him as one of those expected to be

out, so asked him: "Are you glad
you came, little fellow?" To which
the youngster replied vociferously:
"Hell, yes! Whatcher think. I'm

spirit sends hearty Yuletide
greetings to its depositors and
friends. May the "back-log"
