? ???. Provision of Law Hold to Mak< I? Impossible for Mrs. Felton to Qualify.. H.v G??.?t.?! rVrvtee( A cold and unfeeling provision of the law again has its ?? to block the hopes of Mrs W. H.

The Georg.a law provide? that whenever a Senator die? the governor may appoint a suc cessor, who ?hall hold office "until the next regular election following." That apparently settle? it. But If the law had provided that the ap pointee might serve until the regu larly elected successor "qualifies," it then would be possible for Judge '"?corse to hold back hi? credential?? and not qualify until Mr?. Felton had enjoyed the privilege of occupying ?he Senate ?eat for two or three days. If Congres?* should be called in extra session any time before the No vember ejection then, of course, Mrs. Felton would be sworn in and seated.

' oor HAVE you ever experienced that "shut-in" feeling, an oppressive sense of the nar rowness of your environment, the monot ony of your life, its barrenness of incident and repetition of detail? There-are but few who escape it; few, indeed, whose lives so far transcend the ordinary as to lift them and keep them out of the rut of routine. Yet we stand ever at the threshold of an open door, a wide and invitingly open door, through which we may pass at will and wander, without let or hindrance, through every age and every land, seeing life in its most serene or tempestuous phases, in its most tragic or humorous as pects, its most realistic or fanciful presen tations. The Blessing BOOKS YES, books are a blessing, for they provide this open door to the mystery and misery, splen dor and squalor, sacrifice and selfishness of thousands upon thousands of lives ; aye, all life itself. Through them we may cruise with the Vikings or hunt with the aborigines, ride with Attila's scourg ing hordes or hearken to the diatribes of Savona rola, enter the cloister or invade the harem, walk with bleeding feet o'er Arctic ice or tramp the fetid jungle, scale the lofty heights of the Hima layas pr go down through Death Valley. Through them we can live with and learn of all people of all times of all places.
