TAFT IN THE WILDS'
PRESIDENT WILL HAVh THREE
DAYS' REST IN THE
RESPITE FROM BIG CROWDS
Sequoia Forests and Other Places of
interest About the Yosemite Art
Visited Monarcha of the Forest
El Portal, Cal., Oct"' 8. In the
wildness of the western slope of the
Sierras, away from the crowds and
the necessity of speech-making, Presi
dent Taft is traveling by stage coach
toward the wonderful Mariposa Grove
of Dig Trees.
Respite from the great crowds, the
bracing mountain air, breathed amid
a scenic environment declared one of
the most beautiful in the world, and
a simple diet of mountain trout, chick
en, bacon and eggs, is expected to
render the president fit for the re
mainder of his trip.
Three Days In the Wilderness.
He has three days of sightseeing
and restful traveling before him in
and around the Yosemite, end there 1b
not a speech of any sort In sight un
til Fresno is reached next Sunday aft
ernoon. Despite the many suggestion from
the White House at Washington,
which have been telegraphed ahead,
the hospitable cities of the west con
tinue to vie with each other In pre
paring elaborate bills of fare for the
presidential banquets. Mr. Taft has
almost given up the Idea of getting
simple food at any public function,
but he takes the situation philosophic
ally. The president, after visiting the big
trees to-day, will proceed Into the val
ley. He will probably spend to-night
at Glacier Point or at Sentinel hotel.
On Saturday he will return to El
Portal to spend the night, and early
on Sunday morning wiU resume his
Journey toward Los Angeles, arriving
there Monday morning.

president will see are known to all
the world. The more Imposing are
known by name, the most famous be
ing the Grizzly Giant. This monster
measures more than 100 feet In cir
cumference at Its base.
The Fallen Monarch, which lies
prone in the forest and upon which a
stage coach and team of six horses
can be driven, is another.
But probably the most interesting
la Wawona, a living monster of the
woodland world, said to be 3,000 to
6,000 years old, through which a drive

SPANISH MONARCHY IS
Returning Exile Declares Revolution
Is Not Only Possible, but Neces
sary and Easy.
Paris, Oct. 8. The Spanish ambas
sador to France, the Marquis del
Muni, has again formally assured
Foreign Minister Pichon that Spain
has no intention of departing from her
original program regarding Morocco
as communicated to the powers.
Alejandro Le Roux, member of the
Spanish chamber of deputies and lead
er of the Barcelona republicans, who
Is now returning to Spain for the
opening of the Cortes after two years
spent in exile because of his bitter
denunciation of the government, de
clared in an interview in Paris that
all the liberal elements in Spain were
concentrating and that a revolution
was not only possible but necessary
and easy. He said that although Fer
rer was not directly responsible for
the rioting in Barcelona last July he
was convinced he would be con
demned to be shot, as was Garcia, be
cause the clerical reaction has the
upper hand and Is determined to put
an end to lay education. Le Roux is
of the opinion that King Alfonso is
weak and without prestige except with
Ihe army, and that the monarchy is
irretrievably doomed, and he said that
the only way to save Ferrer is
through international agitation in fa
vor of a public trial.
.The French socialists are calling
meetings throughout the republic to
protest against the Spanish repression.
London, Oot. 8. The reports cur
rent on the continent that Great Brit
ain Is supporting Spuln in any scheme
of aggrandizement at the expense of
Morocco were declared at the foreign

eign office officials say they had no
reason to believe that the Spanish
government contemplated the occupa
tion of Tetuan or any other consider
able portion of Moorish territory, or
of otherwise acting contrary to treaty

The Mondell Homestead Lands
Wo are receiving thousands of inquiries about the 320-acre
free homestead lands available for settlers under the Mondell Act
These lands arc located in eastern Colorado and in Wyoming along
the Burlington. The great advantage of this new homestead law
is that the settler is permitted to take up free, 320 acres instead of
1G0 acres, the larger tract being required urder the new dry farm
ing methods; northwestern Wyoming: has from 1G to 21 inches of
moisture, and has produced some of the finest crops of small grains
ever seen in the west.
I personally conduct excursions on the first and third Tues
days of each month to these lands. Write me for special descrip
tive folders, literature, etc. , '
IRRIGATED LANDS IN THE BIG HORN BASIN. These

who realize the coming value of the Big Horn Kasin lands in view

HERE YOU ARE
For the purpose of increasing the circulation of the News
Herald and also of reaching every home in Cass county,
preparatory to making a better paper, we make the following
offer to new subscribers.
The News-Herald from now till after Election loo
The News-Herald from now till January 1, 1910 25o
Any New Subscriber paying for one year in advance at the
regular subscription price of $1.50 can have the News-Herald
sent free till January, 1910.
This barely pays for the paper it is printed on and no re
publican in Cass county can afford to be without his party paper
at this price. In fact a democrat'will gain a whole tot of useful
knowledge he would not otherwise obtain by taking advantage
of this offer.
We have a few of those nice Clocks left which we will give
to any new subscriber who pays one year's subscription in ad
vance and 50 cents extra, as long as they last.
In addition to every year's subscription in advance we will
give one of those "Don't Break Your Back" Dust Pans, a few
of which we have left.
Then we have a lot of Silver Spoons which are warranted
to be just as good as silver anyway, and will give half a dozen
of these as long as they last to any subscriber who pays a year
in advance with 15 cents extra.
Then there ore a' few' dozen scissors left which we want to
get out of the way and will give a pair of these to any subscri
ber who pays one year in advance and 10 cents extra.
This offer does not any where near cover the cost of thia
stuff at the wholesale price, but they are here in the office and
we want to get them out of the way, and we propose to give
new subscribers the benefit.
