We believe Watson Bell will own up that York county likker wouldn't run an automobile. It won't burn. Newspaper reporters had a hard time of it, but finally they got Colonel House to admit that he had returned from where he had been. Those Democratic congressmen who opposed the president in his diplomatic arguments with Germany have a fet ebance of re-election. A news item says that Kolyma Kory achee is the richest woman in Siberia. A woman with a name like that should be rich to offset it. Rloosevelt's approach to our shores didn't cause the cold wind we had last, week. Had it been a hot mave there might have been grounds for suspicion.

A woman has been found in Texas who is said to be 138 years old, wvith a daughter an even 100. These old ladIes attribute their long life partially .to thb fact that they took, as medicihe, A small wvhiskey toddy every morning, and drank sp~aringly of water. Thar, now! Some nlewspapers say that Mr. Bryab went to Washington to make troubl - for the administration, and they lam= basted him; there was no trouble, an i the same papers lamnbast him becaus he din't 'start something." Hard t i please those who were always opposedI to the "Peerless [Leader." Tomorrow, Friday, is St. Patrick'h day, March 17, and it is celebrated all over the world where there is at least one Irishman. It is an old superstition that Ireland's patron saint drove .t~he snakes out of Ireland, but the trnth of the matter' is that all reptiles, including frogs, cannot live ,in the eliindt tand soil of the "Ould Sod."
