Shepard of Dexter— These co-called 'hard' times really are pretty soft! Hushing in where' economists anil financiers fear to tread, Mrs. Shepard opines from the wisdom of her 84 years and the depths of the hickory chair which her husband made a half- century* ago, that the only depressing thing about the depression* is the way her grandchildren and great-grand- .children "complain" about' such little things' as salary cuts. ' "Law me alive!" said Mrs. Shepard. "Folks these days don't know a thing about hard times.

Roosevelt of New York is far ahead, with Alaskan and Washington delegates, numbering 22, already pledged to him and a powerful national organization formed! over a period of years fighting his battles. But even the probability developed last week that Tammany Hall,, controlling scores of convention delegates, is not anxious to break with him, does not entirely clear the shadows from his path. , The sudden-rlshig boom of Speaker Jack Garner of Tftxas recently has started Democratic leaders with its speed. .Unfostered by him, as he stacks to his insistence that he must run the House of Representatives without personal aspirations interesting, his boom already has swept Texas out of the Roosevelt column, and in,the last few days gained support from Senator Sheppard of Texas, coauth'or of the Eighteenth amendment, and William Gibbs McAdoo, an old Al Smith foe The drive for Smith-instructed delegates is going ahead through New England, with a possibility of taking New Hampshire, Massachusetts, anc other state delegations, or part oi them, upon 'Which __ Roosevelt had counted.
