from his home in this city a few days
ago and the last trace obtained of
him by his parents was near Cen
tral Ot v. lie left on a bicycle. Near
Central City a woman saw a boy of
that description enter a touring car
and a bicycle placed on the running
boards. The presumption is that he
was taken to Omaha. The distracted
mother. Mrs. L. F. Bromley, is of
the opinion that he may have been
taken up by some farmer to work
in the wheat fields, for he had indi
cated a desire to go to the. wheat
fields of Kansas to work.

President Harding tried his hand

writing editorials for the Marion
Yesterday's edition carried a two
column editorial signed by "Warren
G. Harding." It was headed "The Es

that honesty, simplicity, industry, ca
pacity and determination "available
to all who aspire," are the chief es
The text of the editorial follows:
While Marion is celebrating the
centennial of the city's founding,
it is fine to rejoice in the coming
together again, to find happiness
in the exchange of sentiments born
of homecoming, to recall the pride
in things accomplished, and above
all else appraise the qualities of
men and measures which made us
what we are today. The latter is
essential to the preparedness for
greater progress in the future.
Sturdy men pioneered the way
to early settlement and sturdy
women, too. They blazed the way
ot development in Ohio and sent

'Mayor Speaks at Ruthville,
Neb., Where He Herded
Cattle 41 Yean
Mayor Dahlman returned yester
day from iewing hit old stamping
ground at Rushville, Neb., where he
was Fourth of July orator.
Forty-three years ago, before there
was anything but Indians and cattle
in that part of the state. Jim Dahl
man was t cowpuncher there.
"The man I worked for had 10,000
head of cattle," said the mayor to
day. "We line riders had our prin
cipal job in the winter to keep the
cattle from wandering into the sand
hills, where, it was believed, they
"But in 1879 a terrific blizard
came up and several thousand cattle
broke through the line. The owner
thought they were lost. Early in the
spring about 20 of us were sent into
the sandhills to see if we could find
any of them. We found, in a JO-dav
roundup, 6,000 head and among these
were 400 without brands, showing
that they had been in the sandhills
for several years unmolested and
finding their own provender. From
that day the sandhills have been rec
ognized as a great asset to the cattle
interests of the state."
On the morning of the Fourth, 250
Sioux Indians in full regalia sur
rounded the house where the mayor
was a guest and called with war
whoops for a speech. The mayor
told them, through an interpreter,
that he is now "'ig chief" of the
great city of Om! a and that when
he gets through with that job he is
going back to be the big chief of his
old friends, the Sioux. This got a
big laugh from the red men, the
squaws and even the papooses.
