Autozranbs should not be col lected as you collect tbe front teeth or finger nail parings ot any man. If there Is no sentiment or association connected with Ibe name It Is not worth keeping." Major Poore'a word was as good as his bond, and during bla lifelong service at tbe National Capital not even a suspicion of Iobb)Ing or unfair dealing of any kind has ever been uttered against his name.
