Nor can it be denied he has given good service to the slate as well as to his party. I.'ncle Joe's saving grace lay in hi; sense of humor. He took events more seriously than men. Himself h' never seemed to take seriously at all. Whin two years ago his friends gathered to honor him there was a delightful Charm in his brief remarks "The year 1X72 was a memorable one in many respects," said Uncle Joe.
