Candidates at tne Capital.

capital for counsel. State Senator E. E.

st opted, ostensibly, to attend a church con

various influential politicians. Mr. Weston

that he had not announced it.

Reason for Changing Chairman Sow.
There appeara to be a considerable dlver
alty of sentiment as to the advisability of
displacing Warner as chairman at the pres
ent time. One view of the situation, fa
vored by a large element. Is that Warner
can well be retained until the next con-
trentlon meets, when the question of the j
succession can be settled. The advocates J
of that view say that there is little for a
chairman to do until that time and the
office need not conflict with Warner's new
duties, and will put off the trouble of find
ing a new Incumbent. Those who appear In
the opposition maintain that it is to the
interest of the republican party to choose
a new chairman at this time in order that
he may lie thoroughly familiar with the
duties of the office and competent to take
active charge when the campaign opens.

mies it by a hair's breadth, all to afford

Today the automobile is in the highest

jeason brings some new act. To make an
lutomobile, weighing a ton or so, gyrate
a some startling manner In midair and
rom It reach the ground In safety, paftses
or art. It would seem that the limit had
been reached in the feats of daring pos-
Jible to this class of performers when an
lutomobile was made to loop the gap and

A still more amazing feat of this kind
has been devised recently in France, in
which an automobile actually turns a
.omersault In midair
bile turn a somersault high In the air and
reach the ground In safety, while Its occu
pant bows and smiles to the spectators.
The new act is called "The Whirlwind of

In this act the automobile, with its occu
pant firmly lashed ot the seat, runs down
an Incline at a terrific speed and up a
short curve, when It is launched fairly

For It seems probable that the law will

the first of these feats, which was con
sidered marvelous enough at the time, a
bicycle rider rode his wheel at terrifying
speed down a sixty-foot ladder placed at

formed in America. The rider was killed
one night by an attack of vertigo. This
feat was mere child's play, however, com

The "automobillde," which has been wit

generally thought to mark the extreme

sition of the center of gravity In the ma
chine Is so arranged that the body of tho
woman seated In the car seems to move
backward, at the instant of turning, faster
than the center of the car Is moving for
ward. At the moment of the somersault
the vehicle appears to stop dead In Its on
ward flight, and the Illusion that It Is
about to fall Is sbsolutely compelling. This
effect hss been received with shrieks of
horror from the spectators, and there Is a
catching at the throat of the most hard
ened, but the car, with Its human freight,
plunges onward and reaches the landing
platform In safety. New Tork World.

anything you choose milk for instance or alone.
At every meal or for a munch between meals, when
you feel the need of an appetizing bite to fill up a vacant
corner, in the morning when you wake hungry, or at
night just before going to bed. Soda crackers are so
light and easily digested that they make a perfect food at
times when you could not think of eating anything else.
But as in all other things, there is a difference in sod
crackers, the superlative being
a soda cracker so scientifically baked that all the nutri
tive qualities of the wheat are retained and developed
a soda cracker in which all the original goodness is
preserved for you.
