Is there nothing else waiting to do ?
‘And is somebody’s troubles diminished?
And is somebody thankful to you?
Can you go to sleep now? Can you slum
With a conscience untroubled and right ?
Is there no guilty thought to encumber
Your agreeable dreams of the night?
Are you through for the day? Are you
You have done all the good that you
As the night covers you with its curtain,
Do you feel like an innocent man?

Walter Winchell describes Broadway as
a place where people spend money they
haven’t earned to buy things they don’t
need to impress people they don’t like. We
are not so sure that the condition describ
ed is confined altogether to Broadway.

Citizens Bank of Mars Hill early in Sep

terms in prison, a little more than a
month after their offense. There should
be no short cuts in administering justice;
likewise, there should be no unnecessary
delays in bringing the accused to trial.
The Mars Hill case is illustrative of what
the law can do and should do more fre
quently in handling criminals.—Oxford

^ Unsigned Articles
Despite the warning even,^ few months
that news articles not accompanied by the
name of the writer will not be published.
The Journal-Patriot receives some of this
type of news every week.
Tliis does not mean that the name will
be printed, but we must know the name of
the persons sending in articles. This rule
will l>e strictly adhered to and sending in
anything without your name will be a
waste of time.
In the Public Pulse column we main
tain for the expression of views on various
subjects the name of the person signing
the article will be published.
Some newspapers publish such articles
signed by “A Reader” of “A Subscriber,”
but we do not think this is fair to the
reading public, who is entitled to know
who is expressing opinions. In fact your
opinion is worthless if you are not willing
to back it up with your name.

the objection by en^ea of Uie
Rooeevelt aclgainistration to the AAA on
the grounds that the practice of crop re-
ducion was regimentation of fanners and
was not on a democratic principle, it seems
that the farmers themselves want national
planning to continue.
A recent referendum shows that com
and hog producers favor continuance by
a vote of around eijdit or ten to one. This
I'esult was expected because these grow
ers have been'receiving higher prices and
Opponents of the AAA have plenty of
grounds on which to attack the principle
of crop reduction. The AAA, we believe,
is serving well the purpose of raising the
farmer’s income in an emergency, but we
are not able to pass an opinion as to the
right or wrong of the principle as a per
manent setup for the American nation.

That goes to show how little most of

Practically every American pronounces
“Paris” the way it is spelled, instead of

body talking about “Mathreeih” would be
regarded in these parts as a sissy, but
that’s how Spaniards pronounce the name
of their capital city, Madrid. As far as
that goes, most of us are as careless with
Italian names as we are with those of
Ethiopia. If we’ve got to say “Ahdis

THE ‘‘LAST MAN”
Charles M. Lockwood, the lone survivor of Min
nesota’s Last Man club, was borne to his final
resting place a few days ago. His death marked
the extinction of the members of Company B,
1st Minnesota volunteer infantry that answered
the first call for volunteers under the command
of President Lincoln. The company took part
in the first battle of Bull Run and served com-
mendably in many notable encounters in the
Twenty years after the close of the war, the
members of the company held a reunion at which
time the Last Man club was formed. Thirty-four
members were present at this reunion. A bottle of
Burgandy wine was procured and set aside for a
toast to the last man and for the last man to use
as a toast for his comrades. As the years wore
on, the number of empty, draped chairs increar-
ed until in 1917 only three survivors were left.
Another was gone in 1929 and another in 1930.
On the annual meeting date. July 21 of that
same year, Lockwood attended the last dinner—
the last man of the Last Man club, surrounded
by thirty-three empty chairs. He drank the
toast to his absent partners as was prearranged
according to the spirit of the group who had so
joyously celebrated many years before.
The bottle of Burgundy was preserved and re
placed in its rosewood case along with the rec
ords of the regiment and delivered to the library
at Stillwater. Minnesota.
With his comrades gone on before him, the
lone survivor carried on for the remainder of
his years and now he is gone to his reward.
The years are slowly hut surely taking their
toll of the men of the blue and the gray of
times when brothers in kind were angered with
each other and fought, but which differences
have long been forgotten now. Before many
more years have passed, somewhere, the last
man of the entire hosts of that day gone by,
may have the privilege of drinking a toast to all
the other survivors and then joining them soon
in the legion of a far greater regiment’ from
whose bonme no traveler retams.
