Finis go get a thrill Fellers we wonder How Many of you grown up men have been Down to the old swimming Hole yet this Spring not to swim but to take a Long lingering look while the recollections of Ages ago come crowd ing Back to you a thousand in a Brief few minutes. The editor has been Down at his n a in fact he took in the three or four ole swimming holes that the gang used to frequent alternately. He had almost forgotten the Shady Pool in the Creek. Well it was always shallow and warm and too blamed Safe and satire to give any boy a lasting impression. We lingered longest at the you bet. That was the place of boy that the Hole for swimming purposes of All other holes because the folks were always warning us against it. The old Quarry had several Fine robust Springs in it. Almost As cold As ice and what boy is there that does t know the delicious danger of a sudden current of cold water Curling about his warm legs. Then there was that deep Hole Over to one Side that the Quarry men had blasted Down 15 feet until they hit a big Spring As thick As your wrist that stopped further work at that Point. You remember Bill Martin stepped into that Hole one night to swim across it and he never came up not alive and you will never forget the evening when you got a cramp right at the same spot and Jess Bakeley stuck a pole Over to you and pulled you out. And d be remember that baby faced Jones kid ran Down to Corners and quot told about it and you swaggered into the Yard later you remember Mother met you at the Gate with drawn scared face and kissed you. And How you had expected her to say quot Sam Don t you dare go to that Quarry any but she did t. And since then you got to understand that she Kenw you would be a Man some Day and had to take risks and that you were Only beginning them now and she Felt she had to stand it. Will Well but none of us Fellows who had swimming Hole Days will Ever forget Ems not to our dying Day. Have you been Down to your swimming Hole yet this Spring go take a look you la get a thrill. Williams Wail John Sharp Williams the somewhat nutty senator from Mississippi raging and ranting on the floor of the upper House of Congress gave voice the other Day to the following declaration quot Indiana politics runs the Senate of the United states and if god Ever witnessed anything smaller than Indiana politics on both sides he must have used a ignoring the most probable explanation that Williams had been drinking Jamaica Ginger or Vanilla extract we Are left somewhat in a quandary As to his meaning. When Williams refers to quot the smallness of Indiana politics on both sides quot we Are forced to the reluctant conclusion that he is bearing in mind his former colleagues Tom Taggart and Jawn whiskers Kern. From them he obtained his idea of Indiana democracy while his rancorous hatred and bitter enmity for All things and All men of Republican extraction provide him with his notion of Republican politics in Indiana but just what does he mean by asserting that Indiana politics runs the Senate of the United states in t this in the nature of a High compliment to the prestige and standing of senators new and Watson hoosiers will be inclined to interpret it in that fashion anyhow.
