Says Nothing Further From Mind Than Returning to Public Life Having "Bully" Time. Idaho Falls, Idaho, Sept. 8. Wil liam G. McAdoo, former secretary of the treasury, characterized as "pure bunk" .a recent press report from New York in which William C. Ly ons of Denver said Mr. McAdoo had told him that he would be a candi date for the democratic presidential nomination in 1024. Mr. McAdoo was interviewed by a representative of teh Idaho Falls Post, aboard a log raft. "The Me- j Adoo Special," upon which he and a party of friends are making a 10 day journey down the south fork of the Snake river spending their time hunting and fishing. "There is nothing further from my mind than a return to public life." Mr. McAdoo told the newspaper man as the raft was floating down the river at a point near Sulphur Bar. "My change of residence to Californ ia was intended to remove me from and not to inject me into politics." Mr. McAdoo said that should he decide to run for the presidency he would announce his candidacy direct to the American people. "I think more of the west than I do of t':e White House," Mr. Mc Adoo continued. "I am having a bul ly time here and the waters of the Snake river are liquid gold to the great irrigation projects of Idaho." Members of the party named the craft "The McAdoo Special" as they left Alpine. Idaho, on the down-river journey. Wednesday and Thursday was Fpeu viawing the Grand Can yoa of the SnaTee river on horseback. We appreciate your co-operation in helping us to publish all the live news of the community.

For comfort and the "feel" your head -dress is right, these caps hit the bulls eye at any range. $1.75, $2.00, $2.25 $2.50 and $3.00 3i Wednesday morning about 8 o'clock musical strains were heard to float thru the little valley of Weeping Water. Upon investigation this disturbance was laid to the Weeping Water band. It was the first of a series of concerts to be given that day. Those who were lucky cnuf to hear the other numbers were the participants in a tour of the east ern half of Cas county advertising the county fair to be held Septem ber 27-29. This trip was sponsored by the Farm Bureau, Fair board. Breeders' association and business men of Weeping Water. Much credit must be given the farmers of Cass county who opened their homes to us and put their livestock at our dis posal for inspection. Immediately after the bind con cert about twenty-four car loads of 1 enthusiastic boosters, led by the sec retary of the fair association, Mr. Boone, droe out to Carl Davis' farm south of town. His herd of Percheron horses was on exhibit there. While there we got a good idea of Pereli tron type as this is about the best herd of Perc herons in the county. Alter thirty minutes of study we drove on to Fred Carstens' farm. His herd of Shorthorn cattle was on ex hibit. A good herd was shown and especially was there some good in dividuals on exhibit. He promised to i brlr.g some of them to the fair, so do not fail to see Carstens' Short horns the 27-29. His pure bred "we heron stallion was shown and a well put up piece of horse flesh it was. Our next stop was at Avoca, where somo of our towns people po?f?d bills to the strains of jazz produced by aforesaid band. Soon after this, Ne hawkn was treated or mistreated to the same kind of performance after which we went to Ray Pollard's, the president of the fair association, place. Ray also raises Hampshire hogs and is very proud of it, as he knows where he gets his bacon. While there- he told us of a project of feeding he has been carrying on the past year in wnich he has kept account of everything he fed his hogs and what they brought him. This was put forth in a very interesting way and it wa3 brought out very forcibly that we should raise more hogs as he fed al his corn to hogs and realized $1.3S per bushel for it. This being a much more profitable market than most farmers found last year. 1 ' ' ! We then walked Just across the road to E. M. Pollard's place, where he exhibited and told us the merits of his Ayrshire cattle. He only has a few cattle and is just starting in but by the fact he brought out in his talk we can readily see that he, -will not have to worry for fear the milk man will not arrive. While in Ne hawka we also visited R. B. Stone's Spotted Poland China hogs. Mr. Stone feas a fine large herd and we were very glad of this opportunity. Our next slop was at Union and as we were a little behind time with our schedule we hurried thru our duties there and drove out to W. E. Banning's orchard just east of town. While there Mr. BawrTng told us a few of the advantages and'gave a few facts concerning his orchard. He is terracing his land in the orchard and has very good results. In the in terest of those who had not seen i much of this work we inspected it rather closely. The next stop was at W. Swan's grove. This according to Carl Day i Co., Agent Snipes was me most im portant stop. And for the benefit of the poultry raisers of Cass county we would advise that when these two men are around they keep care ful watch of their fries. Mr. Ban ning had charge of yie lunch which was spread on the ground by the la dies of the crowd and served cafe teria style. A good deal of praise must be given to the families of W. Swan. E. B. Chapmaan and W. B. Banning for the bountiful way in which they contributed to this re past. Everything from fried chicken to after dinner mints was in evi dence. Water was secured from a nearby well and lemonade"Was very much in evidence. Nobody showed very bad results, however. Immediately after dinner a dem onstration by the Jolly Workers of Avoce. was given. This interesting demonstration was on "Possibilities of the Bungalow House Dress." The girl3 on this team are Muller Schack ley and Dorothy Marquardt. Mrs. Paul Wolph is leader of this girls' clothing club, and has i-ut forth ev ery effort to make the work of this club a success. The girls did a splen did job showing u attractive house dresses, all of which had been made by the girls themselves. This is one of the clubs which will represent Cass eonntv at the state fair. Three cheers for the Jolly Workers club. ! As soon as this was over we pro ceeded to Murray where the band give ths.town a couple of rousing pieces. Our next stop was at the A. O. Ramsey place between Murray and Plattsmouth, where his fine herd of Holsteln Friesian cattle was exhibit ed. While there J. II. Frandse, who was with us all day, formerly chair man of the University of Nebraska I Dairy department, now with the No- braska Farm Journal, told us the good points of a dairy cow and ex- 1 plained the manufacture of milk from raw material by the dairy cow. We next inspected Rex Young's herd of Holsteias and while he was un-1 able to be with us hisfather demon strated their good qualities very well. We next inspected Glen Perry's modern home. Every modern conven ience that is enjoyed in the city was lt5s toasted. This onoer?ra process gives a delightful ' quality that can not be dupMcated in evidence here. It was agreed by everyone that tliey should set this Louse up as their ideal. About 2:l!0 we arrived at Platts mouth and the band under the direc tion of Mr. Boone entertained the strikers for a vhile. We then con tinued on our route. The next stop was at C. L. Wiles v 'litre his flock of Barred Rock chick ens was on exhibition. Mrs. Wiles 1 ad some 400 birds and it certainly 1 made our mouth water to look at J i'nem as they were good ones. Mrs. I Wiles treated th.i crowd to lemonade which was very reiresnicg. ner loaving C. L. Wiles we next looked at Spotted Poland China hogs. These belonged to Geo. Ifcnnings and from t!v Iiolts in evidence we know that I Mr. Hennings knows how to raise ! them. j We went from Hennings' to Louis iile where the band rendered a few i selections. Our next stop was at Man- Icy where Mr. Ed Ruby got lost. He :our.d his way back, however, after io'.lowing the people who were go to hear the band play. We arrived in Weeping Water Lbjut S:09 o'clock after a 75 mile j trip of much educational value. The ) . rowd broke up to the air of "Home, ilwcet Homo," played by the band, j Then Friday morning what might J be considered a repetition of the pre I ; eding Wedii"tli;y was started. The l..?nd as before opened the day with a few selections after which fifteen i ars c(artel on a tour of the western i alf of the county. Everything work- i d smoothly as we were now experi- t -u nanus alter navmg so success fully compleUd our program Wed nesday. - Our first stop was at the farm of John Rauth of Manley, where wc looked over his fine herd of Short horn cattle. Mr. Rauth pointed out -o:i?e of the strong points of the Shorthorn breed in a very interesting way. The first town we found ourselves '.n was that of Murdock where Mr. foone's band ' of 1 melody makers en ei tained the natives for some little ;,rae. W. A. Farmers' accredited flock of Rhode Island Red chickens was in jected and while there E. G. Max ..Til, county ag?nt of Douglas coun- iv. was called upon by County Agent ?i ipes to give a culling demonstra tion. This was very successfully car ricd out and wc may be assured that r.o more loafers will be on the job in (he farm flocks of all those present Mr. Farmer specializes in Rhode Is lind Reds but he also has about 300 White Leghorns. These are a little Ti fit-rent type of chicken than are the Reds ard Mr. Farmer says are much betier rustlers. Alter leaving Farmers we drove r-vcr some newly made road which e.-iui-ed considerable comment, to Ash lmd. By this time it was so hot that ITughcy s cornet had dried out so much that the band could not play until he watered it. With out much m -?re trouble wo got out to Court Lemon's south of town, where a re petition of the noon hour Wednesday v.-as enjoyed. After inspecting Mr. Lemon's modern home we partook of fried chicken etc. just as if we were at home. Under the careful super vision of Mrs. Lemon we were served with coffee and we had real honest to goodness cream i:i it too. Before dinner, however, we were given a cral treat. Several talks or toasts 'were given Under the supervision of Toa3t mas ter Snipes, the following responded: IL M. Pollard, a pioneer of Cass county, brought out the difference between the early Cass and the pres ent Cass county. It has been a re markable change. Congressman E. P. Sturm next followed and gave a very interesting talk also along historical side as he was an earlier settler as well as Mr. Pollard. S. D. Kittel. rep resenting the Nebraska Farm Jour nal, entertained the crowd for a while'and showed that he is profic ient at telling stories. Ray Pollard was called upon next and he respond ed very readily with the subject of most vital interest to him Hamp shire hogs. He pointed out the diffi culties and the obstacles which con front the pure bred breeder of the present time of not only hogs but other lines of livestock as well, and gave a solution of most of the prob lems. Then our gracious host, Mr. Lemon, was calleel upon and he stat ed that he was no talker, but con trary to the average speaker he dem onstrated to us that if given the op portunity he could command his au dience as well as even a congressman. After a few announcements from Mr. Snipes we fell to and to an onlooker it might have appeared that those present were hungry. After thanking Mr. Lemon and family very cordially and receiving an invitation to come back, we were pu our way to Greenwood where the band entertained that peaceful vil lage for a while. We were met there Dy Chas. Hoff man who conducted us out to his place and showed us his fine herd of Poland China hogs and Holsteln Friesian cattle. Mr. Hoffman is on cf tha progressive men of that neigh borhood and is mighty proud of his stock which he has a right to be. His son, Elmer Hoffman, in the pig club of that vicinity, also exhibited the gilt which he is going to win first prize with at the state fair this week. From there we went to Alvo and aroused that little village from a hot afternoon siesta by the strains of Yankee Doodle. After leaving AIto we went to R. R. Adens' place Just north of Eagle where we saw some mighty fine specimens of Duroc Jer sey hogs and Buff Orphington chick ens. After looking at those we went across the road to Chas. Jacobsen's to look at his Poland China hogs and by the way ho ha3 some mighty fine ones , too. When asked what he fed tliem he promptly took us out to the field and showed us a fine crop of soy beans which he sowed right in with the corn and is going to sta'rt to hog down before long. This makes a balanced ration and also saves the cost of harvesting the corn. Then came the biggest surprise and treat of the day. He led us up to the house where he had all the ice cream we could eat and Mr. McMahon stood upon the porch carving watermelon till you might have thought he was a butcher instead of a Smith Hughes agricultural teacher. v We then went on into Eagle where tho band did justice to the town without Mr. Boone .who had had so many watermelon seeds still in his mouth that every time he started to play he clogged up the mouthpiece of his horn. We then came home by the way of Elmwood and Wabash, giv ing each a concert, and arriving in Weeping Water in time to see the last few innings of the Weeping Water-Eagle game, but not in time to duckvthe onslaught of the Eagle war riors. After being on this trip and look ing over the prospects of Cass countr we predict a great future.

The men of eighty-five and ninety years of age are not the rotund, well fed, but thin, spare men, who live on a slender diet. Be as careful as he will, however, a man past middle age will occasionally eat too much or of tome article of food not suited to his constitution, causing indigestion or constipation and will need a dose of Chamberlain's Tablets to move his bowels and invigorate his stomach. When this is done, there is no reason why the average man should not live to a ripe old age. Weyrich & Hadraba. ATTENDANCE AT STATE FAIR TOTALS 223,656 Lincoln, Sept. 8.

Nebraska world war veterans who attend the annual convention of the American Legion at New Orleans, October 16 to 20, will witness the portrayal of the life of the overseas fighter in the entertainment pro gram. These amusements range from placid French village scenes to great naval and f aerial displays. Three large downtown squares will be in imitation of the French village squares. The "Pike" at the famous Spanish Fort amusement park is to be dressed in Mardi Gras garb, those in charge of the entertainment say. Dances will vary from those of the Creole days to modern steps. One of the features of the con vention will be" the parade in which 50,000 Legion boys will march to the tune of 100 bands and crack fife and drum corps. A large number of the members of the Nebraska department of the Le gion plan to attend the convention, a special train, one section of which will leave Omaha and another Lin coln, having been chartered to carry those desiring to go. Inasmuch as Pullman arrangements must be made in advance, it is urged that all who contemplate going get in touch with their post adjutants at once. The railroad fare will be around $39 from Plattsmouth for round trip, being the same as the normal one-way fare instead of the one cent a mile granted last year to Kansas City. A tourist section for the entire trip, and available for occupancy on sid ing near the down-town section of New Orleans, may be had for $21, and considering that it will accom modate two or three persons easily, will provide sleeping accommodations at considerably below the nominal hotel rates which it is announced will be in effect during the conven tion. Standard Pullman car accom modations may be had if desired, but only at regular rates, and there will be no parking of these cars in New Orleans. Several of the cars will be for the accomodation of lady members of the party. No Substitute Offered Say what you will about druggists offering something "just as good" be cause it pays a better profit, the fact still stands that ninety-nine out of a hundred druggists recommend Cham berlain's Colic and Diarrhoea Rem edy, when the best medicine for diar rhoea is asketl for, and do so because they know from what their custo mers say of it, that it ca nbe de pended upon.
