anyhow. And he'd onct bet wrong

Uncle Joe's Work for Interests?
Joseph Fitzgerald of Brooklyn,
who will be the next chairmen of
the house committee on appropria

cess is acquired by brains. Some
times success follows merit. Some
times success follows virtue. Some
times success follows a career of
self-denial nnd of kindly acts
I which secure their mead of popu-
I larity. Then again success comes to
i a man merely because the convo
lutions of his cerebrum and cere
bellum aro more convoluted than
those of his fellows.
Ho thinks, and ha 3 the faculty
of thinking consecutively, accu
rately, in figures, in sentences, in
references to volumes, in the lore
which is acquired by study and
the burning of midnight oil, the
ability to think on his feet and to
put his thoughts into lucid speech.
It may be that the speech ls raspy;
or It may be that the speaker is an
unprepossessing, insignificant in
Is Interests' Man.
John Joseph is not noted for his
virtue. His political Integrity Is not
above par. Because John Joseph is
remembered and will be remem
bered, probably for a long time as
