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.

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
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 a couple of rousing
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
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
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
After being on this trip and look
ing over the prospects of Cass countr
we predict a great future.

to Long Living.
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

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
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
Several of the cars will be for the
