Mr. Johnson was born and raised in Huntington. Mo., but had made this locality his home for so many years, that he seems more like a Cass county boy than from any other locality. Harry enlisted in the army with the large number of voluteers t hat went from Cass county to Camp Cody, where he remained until the 17th of September, when he sailed with the balance of his company for France. Upon arriving in England he was stricken with pneumonia, and died on the 0th of October. Tue news of his death was given by the proper authorities to his mother at Huntington, Mo., who has conveyed the sad intelligence to his many true and loyal friends in and near -Murray, where has spent a large portion of his life. At the time of enlistment. Harry was working on' the farm for Tom. Tilson, but had worked for a num ber of other men of this community and has always proven himself to he a valuable man to his employer. He was about twenty-five years of age. He wass well liked by all who knew him. FOR SALE. PaiiM.uct six-holo range, practi cally new, also oil heater, new. Mrs. L. D. Hiatt. FOR SALE. One new "Economy King" cream separator.

Two more Amerfcan governmen tal procedure were shattered today as a result of President Wilson's trip to the European peace conference. They were these: Thomas R. Marshal, vice- president of the United States, presided over the resrnlar meeting of the cabinet, this being the lirst time for a vice president to perform such a function lurim the life of a president. Wireless communications were re ceived by the cabinet from President Wilson and a report of the meeting was ent by wireless to the president, this being the lirst time in American hh-tory for such a maneuver. Vice President Marshall presided over the cabinet meeting at the re quest of the president and the mem bers of the cabinet as well. The president, it develops, asked Mr. Mar shall to undertake this function be- f;-.re he sailed for France and early todav Secretary of the Treasury Mc- Ai o. senior member of the cabinet in the absence of Secret ry Lansing, called the vice president on the tele phone and urged him to preside on behalf of "he cabinet members. The vie president having told the president he would officiate inform ally at the meetings during the lat fer's absence, cheerfully accepted the invitation from Sec McAdoo and. was on the job at the white house at "::.10 o'clock, with a big black cigar and a gavel. To be cer tain that he should run into no en tanglements thereby. Vice President Marshall prepared a brief statement which he made to the cabinet on calling it to order, and which he later' made public. It was as fol lows: Make Brief Statement. "Gentlemen: In assuming the chair and presiding over what is known as a meeting of the cabinet I neeui it proper to make a brief state ment so that my conduct may not be misunderstood. I am lure and am acting in obedience to a request pre ferred by the president upon the eve oi' his departure and also at your re quest. ! il I am here informally ami personally. 1 am not undertaking to exercise any official duty or func tion. I shall preside in an unofficial and informal way over your meet ings out of deference to your desires and those of the president." This was the vice president formal utterance on assuming his informal office which he later described as the function of a "referee." Mr. Marshall however, made an informal an nouncement to the cabinet which leaked out afterward and which went a long way to satisfy the president's advisors that he will make no stren uous effort to assume the presidency during the absence of Mr. Wilson. The vice president is authoriti vely quoted as having said: "Now gentlemen, this question of presidential succession has caused line and many others considerable un j easiness and concern. I wish to say it hat there is no longer anything un j certain about it so far as I am con icerned. After all the constitutional lawyers in the country had passed on the issue, I was still unsatisfied, 40 acres 2 1-- miles soulh cd Plattsmouth ; S acres of alfalfa; balance being farmed. fid acres bottom land, four miles northwest of Plattsmouth. adjoin ing Orcapolis; 1 actes prairie hay, cuts twice a year; balance farm land. 51 acres, one mile east, 1V miles north of Murray; 40 acres in wheat, balance good pasture, fair improvements, running water, and some fruit.

The merriment was explained by Mr. Marshall at the end of the meet ins: when asked how he enjoyed his novel experience. "I had a very good time." he said, "it was very eyjoyable listening to what members of the cabinet had to :ay and quite a number of good -tories were told."
