SCHOOL ELECTION VALID.
The news columnes of The Times
I yesterday's issue indicated that
Governor Chamberlain's holiday pol
icy was considered by some as likely
to cast a doubt on the legality of
the High School election, which oc
curs this evening. It is as well to
say here and now and without equi
vocation that the election today can
not and will not be in the least re
spect affected by the fact that this
ia what in many states is called a
bank holiday. In the first place,
when the election was set for today
it was not a holiday at all. It only
became fao since it was designated
as an election day. In the next
placo, it is not designed or Intended
hy the law or by the Governor that
tho. proclamation of the day as a holi
day should disturb the regular polit
ical or commercial business of the
stato, and it would be against public
policy and silly to so construe it.
There has' been much twaddle
about the holiday policy put in force.
It hag 3et a lot of bright young critic3
to work to find flaws. But in fact Jt
.merely does two things effectively:
first, it Btops .the operation of the
courts, except in the necessary ad
ministration of the police functions
in. maintaining order In the com
munity. It is not probable that the
law qver contemplated a succession
of holidays covering several consec--utivo
dajs, but it is possible that tho
executive cannot be charged with an
abuso of his powers if tho occasion
jiistlfioa such unusual action. There
Is not a word or an authority to bo
'.found in tho written or unwritten
law which can justify tho nonper
formance of a mlnlbterlal act by nuy
public officer on such a holiday as
t today. Contracts can bo made, nc
- JniotfJodgmcuts can bo taken, deeds
can he executed and recorded, busl
nesa can he transacted, monoy may
bo borrowed or loanod, notes may bo
executed and accepted, but tho pres
entation and protost of notes, drafts,
bllla of exchange and commercial
junior of any kind must bo deferred
to and until tho next day after tho
- holiday or succession of holidays.

Romance In Old Age
Pine Bluff, Ark,, Nov. C. Scar
ing MnrBh, aged 72, who came here
from BIsmarcK, St. Francois county,
Mo., to start a new 'business career
Id the undeveloped oil field at Grace,
this county, met, wooed and won a
worthy widow qf that community
the day of his arrival. The fact that
he and the widow were wartime acr
cuiaintanccs was . not discovered un
til they were past tho uncertain
Having been accepted by the fair
widow, who Is two years his junior,
Mr. Marsh took up the business that
brought him there and for three
months devoted himself to oil pros
pects during the day and to court
ship of evenings. Then Mrs. Mar
garet Ncad named the day and they
came to Pine Bluff a few days ago
and were married at the First
Methodist parsonage by Rev. T. Y.
When Mr. Marsh and Mrs. Nead
arrived here, they asked where the
marriage licenses were issued and on
thir way to the county clerk's ofllce
In the courthouse their undisguised
satisfaction with the world and each
other betrayed them as a would-be-bridal
couple and quite a crowd fol
lowed them. They did not give
away to embarrassment, however,
and Mr. Marsh did not lower his
voice when he asked for the license.
"How old are you?" inquired
Deputy Clerk Nichol, as he wrote
tho prospective bridegroom's name
upon tho certificate.
"I am not an old man, I am only
72," he replied.
"And you, Mrs. Nead?" courte
ously inquired the deputy.
"I am two years younger than my
sweothear," she replied.
After securing the licenses the
couple boarded a car for the home
of Rev. Mr. Ramsey, where the cere
mony was said. The pastor refused
to admit a crowd of curious specta
tors, who gathered at the house.
"This is no sideshow," he said.
"This couple, though advanced in
years, has seen fit to seek tho com
panionship of each other and live
their remaining years in happiness
and peace. It is the proper thing
for them to do in their lonesomeness
and I am delighted to be some help
to them in their sensible move."
With this the crowd dispersed
and Mr. Marsh and his appy bride
left the parsonago and returned to
no business district, where the
sipiit several hours shopping before
they departed for their home at
Mr. Marsh came to this country
aoveral months ago with a party of
oil men from St. Francois county,
Mo. He had sold his real estate
business there to begin life anew.
The members of the party decided
to drill for oil on Mr. Nead's plan
tation near Graco station.
Proposed, Accepted First Day.
Tho day Mr. Marsh arrived he was
Introduced to Mrs. Ncad. She was
a widow of many years, preposses
sing for her ago, neat ppearlng and
industrious. She is li'My educated
and Mr. Marsh, bci 'j . . ?.n of atu

which ''oth wore famll! ".
By n: httall Mr. Mar.th had pro
posed to hl3 new acqu 'intanco and
had boon aco Uod. Ho then estab
lished his residence at tho home of a
neighbor, whero ho resided until yes
terday, passing tho ovening in com
pany with his "sweetheart." They
caino to Pino Bluff unaccompanied.
"I was in Pine Bluff once before,"
said Mr. Marsh. "That was 12 years
ago. I was In tho federal army thon
and, strango-to say, lived nt tho
sn mo liottso with tho woman who to
day becanio my wife, but who was
nt that time tho wife of another.
"Wo aro not old. That is a mis
taken idea. A man is as old as ho
fcols. Wo were both alone in tho
world and longed for companionship.
Mrs. Nead lias enough to livo upon
comfortably nnd I have a neat littlo
sum that will Insure us plenty for
nil time. That's all there is to it."
