Is the statements of tho New York
Sun to go In tho record without &

Tho Sun says: "we understand what

'Is that a correct estimate of the big

Does this sound Rooseveltlau?
Is there hope In thoso statements
for the gonornl public?
Each day brings proof thnt tho
gamblers and stock Jobbers think Taft
will bo one ot them and that their
former practise of assault upon the
comniorclal honor of this country will
be unnoticed from the White House.
Has th0 Uepubllcan press no ans-
wer to or for theso utterances by one
yho seems to speak oy the card and
as on having authority?
Tno New Lork Sun seldom errs In

tals up the hill to our Intellectual

that time for some reason unknown
to us we have been unable to get a

as If we will have to re-ad vortlso

unavoidable part of this effort to build
was that Bullnday had thought of put-

nicely dressed young men called to

took that carpet out ot tho storm cel-

as we had It on the floor we had no
right to list It as destroyed while us-

Thoro are no bettor storj tollers

It la always to the cleanest sou.
Mr. Krn has n keen taste for tuo
satire In life ills friends recall ono
of his tmciiHtlc utterances Indulged
m on llio occasion when lie wns urn-

At tha time Mr. Kern Was being dis-
cussed as n vico presidential possi-
Someone ocularly remarked tnat a
few years In Washington as tho vice
l-rosldont of tho country ought to
p.easo Kern greatly. Tho question

that It Is costing Vico President Fair-

that ralo considering the stale ot
my phyulcal fortuno I could llvo In

Mr. Bryan was greatly amused at
the utterance it Is said and often
elludos o Mr. Kcm's remark.
As long as somebody doesn't organ-

ter at tho time weighing llttlo moro
than 'too pounds.
Many of Kern's pupils were more
than 20 years of ago and In slzo wero
grown men. He taught one school tor
two tortua with much success and gave
up tho occupation of "sctiooimnstor"
to become a lawyer.
While getting his earlier education
Mr. Keru attended what was culled
tne Indiana normal school of Kokomo.
lie rodo to school each morning on
horseback and carried his luncheon.
He has often admitted that ho recited
his lessons to his horse during tlie
noon hour and that frequently on the
way to und from school ho indulged
in flights of oratory that madu the old
borao prick up Its ears.
Affability has always been ono or
Mr. Korn'fa prominent characteristics.
He is keenly .satirical but his satire
never wounds. Ho is very popular
wun tne loading men or opposlto poli-

Fairbanks said of him.

an upright patriotic citizen. Wo hnvo
