The Sixty-fifth Consress, just expired, has been ti body of remarkable experiences. No conpress in our history has had ns many and important problems with which to deal. We will nil agree that it did many wise and beneficiont things and many things that it should not have dorm. Also that it failed to do many things which it should have done. This summary only shows that a body of men is human, nnd therefore both as well-intentioned and as liable to err as the im'.nidunl man.

The seventeen-year locust, an insect extremely interesting to naturalists, but thoroughly detested by nurserymen and owners of orchards is due to appear in this country in larye numbers during 1919. The real name o this insect is the periodical cidada. It spends seventeen years slowly developing underground in in Tested localities, its emer gence in such localities every seventeen years has been ob served in this country every seventeen years since 1715. Enormous swarms will ap pear in parts of the nothern states either in the last week of May or the first week of June. No one can fail to recognize their presence in the given lo calities, for they are a noisy and a strenuous race. After five weeks the brief existence of the cidada ends in exhaus tion nnd death. Considerable injury is done to young orchards and nursery trees by these insects. No young orchards should be set It's n great thing to hnvc you know this .store ns your store.

Mnu Jane Hopper has upon the walls of l.er parlor two valuable paintings. These are by Jouett. This artist has "come into his own" with art collectors and his works arc higldy pri.cil. Among early Kentuckians to sit for Jouett for a porttait was a mark of gentility. One of Miss Hopper's por traits is of her grandfather, Kdward Cronley, Ksq the other is of Gov. Kobcrt T. Letcher. Governor Let cher rat for hi portrait while he was yet n Congressman, and one of Clay's trio of political advisors of whom an other was William Jordan Graves, a man, Garrard County horn and rear ed. (These two sons of Gorrard were pitted against each other in the gub ernatorial race of 1840, Letcher cloe- lly winning) - J The painting portrays Letcher as n youngish man (apparently just old enough to enter Congress) with a full, round face anil alert eyes, a face 'suggesting that fund of geniality with 'which he charmed Into good humor murmcring crowds at pioneer stump speakings, a geniality pronounced a characteristic that it is mentioned ns ono of bis virtues upon his tomb. Tho artists brush depicts his sitter ns u modish dresser in high stock, color ed waist coat ami frilled shirt, his face smoothly shaven except for a neatly trimmed short growth of beard just in front of each car. This portrait has attracted visits I from membere of tho Letcher family from distant cities, and Miss Hopper has been offered an exceedingly hand somo sum for it but she feels too I keenly the tiride of nossesslon her late mother had in it, nnd her own senile of stewardship that it may pass down In her family. On n white marblo topped black walnut centre table in tho same room is a silver water set massive pitcher and goblets that were used In tho Ex ecutive Mansion nt Frankfort during Governor Letcher's occupancy. These heirlooms came into posses sion of Miss Hopper through her mother, the lato Mrs. Scymore Hop per, who as an orphaned child was roared in the home of her uncle, Governor Letiher and wife, being childless. Governor .etcher's wife was Charlotte Robertson, sister of Chief Justice George IlolwrUon, whom Henry Clay it is said, declared was the most hwaitiful woman of his acquaintance. A photograph of Mrs. Letcher also in ixmswmioii of .Mis Hopper bears a striking likeness to her great niece, the late Mrs. Tattle 1 1. Gill, of I .an on iter. The companion portrait of Gov. Letcher, the painting of his wife, is in possession of the family of the bite Mis. Charlotte Warren, of Stanford, she having been a great niece and namesake of this cliHrming(wontnn. SCHOOL NOTES.
