BREAKS QUEER VOW, DIES
OF BROKEN HEART
Stamford, Conn., Feb. 10.
John H. Kidney died of a broken
heart here yesterday.
John was a Democrat, and in
1896 he swore he would never
trim his whiskers or hair until
William J. Bryan was elected
President, thus piling up trouble

John stuck to his" oath until his
hair hung down his back to his
waist, and he had to tie up his
beard to keep it off the ground.

ed of his bargain and had both
hair and beard sheered.
His family say his death yes
terday was caused by hfs bitter
grief and disappointment at not
having kept his vow.

of that, can be guessed at. Under
a land taxing scheme he'd have
to "cough up" a thousand a
month more than he's doing now.
Ouch! That hurts.
