A man whom I know who is very anxious to breed habits of saving in his chil
dren, has adopted this method. Perhaps it will appeal to other fathers.
As each son begins to earn hls own bread and butter the father takes out for
him a 19 year Insurance policy for $1000. This, he tells hils son he will pay for
three years. At the end of that time he is going to turn the policy over to his
son who-can either redeem It or keep on paying It.
He has six children. Four of them have received their policies and not one
has chosen to take the money out. Two have the policies already paid up and
ready for a rainy day, and not only that, hit have kept on saving on their own
accounts. Doesn't that sound like a pretty good method?

Returning from two months
spent on a Montana ranch, Harry
Elberman, one of the most popu
lar dry goods salemen of the city,
tells a story of hunting in the
Montana hills with an English
man, says the Philadelphia
"All of us were out hunting
one day," says Elberman, "and
the Englishman shot at every
thing that moved. If the wind
carried a cloud of dust upward
you could depend on 'is ludship
to shoot at it. So it happened
that he narrowly missed shooting
a young woman who, with her
husband, was visiting on the
ranch. When our party returned,
the husband, boiling angry, ap
proached the Englishman arid
" 'Look here, you darned stupid
ass, you missed shooting my wife
by an inch.'
'"Aw, missed her!' said the
Englishma'n, either astonished or

John Barrett, director of the
Bureau of American Republics, is
the champion long distance talker
of Washington-and he likes to
make speeches, says the New
York Sun. On a recent occasion
when his talk consumed almost
the time allotted for the entire
program, he was followed by M.
V. Richards, land agent of the
"Mr. Barrett's speech" said
Mr. Richards, "is like the excuse
made by the general agent of a
railway in Georgia who was
called before the board of direct
ors to explain why the road was
threatened with bankruptcy.
" 'Gentlemen,' said the agent,
'our railway runs through a
country which is rich in natural
resources. There's nothing the
matter with the road, gentlemen,
except that it has absolutely no
terminal facilities.' "
A popular young newspaper
man returned to town last week
after an extended absence, says
the Philadelphia Ledger. His
friends hailed him with repeated
acclaim-and he failed to return
the acclamation when it came his
round. The other afternoon,
after a convivial morning, he met
a long time acquaintance, and,
together they strayed intoa place
where you could get a glass of
water without leaving your seat.
About an hour later the young
journalist softly pushed his way
I through the door of the private
office of a noted specialist on
mental diseases. Wrinkles of
anxiety furrowed his brow and
black care was plastered over his
countenance an inch thick. He
closed the door and thus he spake
to the medicine man:
"Doc, I wish you'd get out
your stethoscope and binoculars
and other medical machinery and
find out what is the matter with
my brain box. I dropped into a
place of rest with a friend just
now and about the third watch
while we discoursed on Mexico
and Roosevelt and other revolu
tionary topics, the conversation
naturally drifted on my late visit
to the Pacific coast, upon which
my friend says to me, and this
is what he said:
" 'Did you ever notice in these
large western towns where there
are more men, women and child
ren than there are inhabitants,
that the population is greater
than in eastern towns of the
same size where there aren't so
many people?' "
"Say that over again," de
manded the physician.
"That's just what I said to him, "
replied the young journalist, and
repeated the remark.
"Now write it down-and
write it slowly," said the doctor
after listening carefully a second
"And that's just what *I told
him, too," exclaimed the young
man. "Here's what he wrote,"
and he handed the physician a
sheet of paper.
The doctor read and re-read
the mystic remark half a dozen
times. Then handing it back to
the newspaper man, he said,
after deliberation: "Send, your
friend up here; he's the one who
needs to see me."
"I note,"' says the sage, ac
cordihg to Judge, "that you allow
a sprinkler to spray water upon
your lawn almost continuously."
"Yes," said the native, "we
do that to make the grass grow.'"
"But the other day I saw a
man pushing a clicking contri
vance over the lawn and -"
"Oh, yes. That was a lawn
"And what is its purpose?"
"Why, to cut the grass."

If the Parish of St. Landry
and the new Parish of Evange
line were in his Supreme Court
District, Judge O'Niell would
receive a majority vote to be
polled in these two parishes, we
believe. He is a§ popular here
as he is in Franklin, because the
people know him here as they
know him at home. The St.
Landry people are somewhat
noted for their factionalism and
division of sentiment on most all
subjects; but when it comes to
Judge O'Niell, there is a strong
sentiment of real, affection for
During the last illness of the
lamented Judge W. C. Perrault,
Judge O'Niell was assigned to
do the work of this district, and
he did it with a marvelous devo
tion to duty.
There had not been any crimi
nal term of court here nor civil
business of any consequence, for
about sixteen months. The
Grand Jury had become functus
officio, and sone of the Jury
Commissioners were disqualified;
our jail was filled with prisoners
entitled to trial, and the civil
docket of our court was probably
the most congested in the state.
As a result of a recent prohibi
tion campaign, there was an un
settled and unsatisfactory condi
tion in our civic atmosphere, as
is usually engendered by such
factional strife and bitterness.
Judge O'Niell faced these diffi
culties and unfavorable condi
tions unconcernedly, and entered
upon his responsible task with
an air of fearlessness, pride and
pleasure. He came promptly on
the very day of his appointment;
reorganized the machinery of
the court and put it into motion,
with the facility and confidence
of a man who knew his business.
His first charge to the- Grand
Jury was eloquent, forceful and
productive of remarkable results.
It brought about forty indict
ments against violators of the
prohibition law, and this from a
Grand Jury whose foreman and
members had been almost unani
mously opposed to prohibition.
The local bar held a meeting and
adopted resolutions of approval
and appreciation of the Judge's
charge, and requested that it be
given to the local press. Sena
tor J. R. Thornton, who was at
tending court here and heard the
charge, gave out an interview in
an Alexandria paper, saying it
was the best charge he had ever
heard delivered to a grand jury.
Judge O'Niell held court here
untiringly from early in - the
morning until late in the nights,
until he had emptied the parish
prison and replenished the school
treasury, cleared the court docket
of its civil businesss and estali
lished an era of prosperity in the
When Judge O'Niell had served
six months here, Judge Perrault,
with his characteristic courage,
believed that he had sufficiently
regained his health to resume his
duties. The acting judge was
relieved of his commission and
ended his term on a Saturday
evening. The members of the
bar and court officials gave an
elaborate banquet in his honor.
Toasts, eulogies and praises of
his good work were profuse.
The Judge delivered a brilliant
response. On the next day, how
ever, Judge Perrault suffered a
relapse. A jury had been drawn
for the following morning, and
Judge O'Niell had returned to
his home. A telegram was re
ceived on that Monday morning,
from the Supreme Court, an
nouncing the re-appointment of
Judge O'Niell; and he was here
that very afternoon, began the
trial of a jury case, and con
tinued his term, under this sec
ond appointment, until Judge
Perrault's death. Punctuality
and industry were among his
most noticeable good traits.
In his judicial career here,
Judge O'Niell was just and im
partial; he was as merciful and
considerate of the weak and hum
ble as he was. fearless of the
strong and influential.
With that honest, frank, sym
pathetic and friendly disposition
of his, the Judge's popularity in
the different parishes of his dis
trict may be gauged by the ex
tent to which the people of. each
parish know him. He has an
exefrplary character, and as he
is known so will he be liked.
The voters of the Fourth Dis
trict will make no mistake if they
elect Judge O'Niell to the Su
preme Bench. The Clarion says
this with knowledge of the facts
and with the assurance that we
are expresping the sentiment of
a grateful people in St. . Landry.
