great majority of people would
much rather see him go free, in
spite of the fact he has taken
a human life. Jerome seems to

With the supreme court of the
state about a year or more be
hind in its work and appeal cases
growing creator every month,
there is a problem for the seven
supremo judges to debate. If
the prcsont rate of appealed lit!
gation keeps on it will only
lengthen out the arrears and
pretty soon there will be so many
cases tbat the court never can
catch up. Lawyers and legisla
tors are casting about for a rem
edy, but none is in Hight. Some
thing will have to be done.
Perhaps the idea will permeate a
few dense brains that there are
too many lawyers. I he consti
union will not admit oi any
more supremo judges, but every
new batch of young lawyers
turned out breeds more liliga

All the great ruluin of the

or enjoyed the comfort of an
electric light. All these are
within the reach of rich and

rich and poor. You are better

have conveniences they never
imagined or dreamed about.
Chief among them arc the mod

not if you neglect to road the

Comfort, luxuries and nucotwi

are advertised proves that the

The Best Light
At The Lowest Cost
ELECTRIC LIGHT is the most suitable for homes,
offices, shops and other places needing light.
Electricity can be used in any quantity, large
or small, thereby furnishing any required
amount of light. Furthermore, electric lamps
can be located in anyplace, thus affording any
desired distribution or light.
No other lamps possess these qualifications, there
fore it is not surprising that electric lamps are
rapidly replacing all others in modern establishments.
