The banker In Batea court, fol

cepted the decision philosophically,
realizing that the banka were taking

and refused to send oat money to

anybody enlighten Dan? Butler

-Urlch, Mo, November, 1907.
Editor Times: I see that T D.
Embree wants to know why so many
people persist in saying a widow wo
man. Now, Webster savs a widow Is
a woman, who has loat her husband.
Consequently It would be acontradlc
tton of terms, according to the ac
knowledged standard, to call her a
widow man. " Whitllng Bill. "
