Formor United States Senator Jo- ^

The death of Senator Terrell has
caused widespread grief throughout
the city, and lt ls with the deepest
regret that bis thouBand? of friends

Long ontl| Useful Career.
From farmer hoy to United StateB
Senator was the span that Joseph M.
I Terrell accomplished in his career of
fifty-two years.
He had that quality of loveable
noBS, the admiration of which made
him a friend to thousands who knew
Ulm well, and drew tens of thousands
who only knew him slightly. Always
serene, calm and unruffled, even in
the heat of political strife, he made
personal friends of his political ene
mies, and of him lt may bo ?aid with
truth that he never deserted a friend
in need.
His sympathy for the boys and
girls on tho farm was proverbial, for
he knew how narrow, were the lives
and how meager the opportunities of
many of them. He became known as
the "educational Governor" because
of lils encouragement of everything
that would give them .a,, better equip
ment for life, and whd'fl'^e'ft^nmo a
Senator his first thought was to ex
tend the opportunities which as Gov
ernor ho bad helped to provide for
them in the establishment of eleven
district agriculturel schools.
He was engage" In the preparation
of a speech which he expected to de-,
liver In tho Senate In support of his
bill for further government aid to
education In agriculture and mechanic
arts at the time he was stricken with
paralysis. ' .
Mr.Terrell reached the Senate after
serving tho State in bbth branches
of the.' Legislature and after occupy
ing the office of Attorney General for
five terms 'dr ton years. He resigned1
the' latVer oince io von fo'|- Governor,'
although he could liavo held lt indef
initely. He waB elected Governor
and discharged the duties of that
oiflco for nearly five years.
