his last year's holly and mistletoe. It

that the bitter weather prevailing at
the time brought on the sickness that
caused his death." He was stricken
down with pneumonia on his return

day or two.

Miss Ivia, aged ten, and Robert, aged
six, are with their grandmother, Mrs.

"Editor Star: In looking over the

I notice a slur at Mr. Bryan on his

him to accept Germany's proposal for

appeared in jthe Times-Union, you

he wired. Now in accordance with

often refer you are due a correction,

influence to get his government to
open negotiations. Now this is not
for publication it is simply a : per personal

play from our home paper."
After re-reading the paragraph re referred

our friend has stated in several. If

If Mr. Bryan is the greatest man in
the United States and we have never
thought he was his message was
very inappropriate at the time. Not
having seen any reply to it in the
dispatches, we are of the opinion that

dispatch, that is, if he didn't stick it
in the waste basket..
There is- one thing in which we feel
we have a right to correct our friend,
and that is the sentence in which he
speaks of our "spirit of fairness to
which' you often refer." We will in invite
vite invite him to bring to the Star office all
copies of the paper in which we have
referred to our spirit of fairness for
which we will pay $1 apiece. We may
be imbued with that spirit, but if we
are we leave it to our friends to take
it for granted. So far as we can re remember,
member, remember, we seldom refer to it. We
remember, about three years ago,
when the Trammell corrupt practices
act was under consideration, saying if
this paper misrepresented any man,
he could obtain a correction without
any law. Perhaps we have made a
few similar remarks since. We have
not bragged on our spirit of fairness,
nor, so far as we remember, anything
else. If this paper has any virtues,
its readers can see them. It keeps
us too blooming busy trying to patch
up its many failings to waste any
time admiring its goodness.
