Without Cabinet Minister or Other
Important Position, State Will Be
la Line to Get an Ambassador
ship or Foreign Post.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DF.8 MOINES. Ia., Aug. 10.-(SDeclal.)-tohen
the administration of President
Theodore Roosevelt ends and that of Wil
liam H. Taft begin, Iowa Will awake to
the fact that It has none of Ita fair -sons
In conspicuous positions In the employ of
tho government. Thomas C. Dawson, wha
la envoy extraordinary and minister pleni
potentiary to the government of Colombia
and draw a salary of $10,003 a year will
hold the most Important position. Iowa w.ll
be due to get "something."
Under Roosevelt, Iowa had two cabinet
positions. There have been reports that
Secretary Wilson can continue aa aecretary
of agriculture if he wanta to, but there
have also been reports that he doesn't
want to. So when Taft enter the White
House he will find the state of Iowa hold
ing fewer federal position outside of the
state than most any state tn the union
of the Ize and Importance of Iowa.
Besides two cabinet positions Iowa had
under Roosevelt, the directorship of the
mint held by Georgo Roberts. Robert Arm
strong was first assistant of the treasury.
Conger was minister to China and there
were other lesser positions.
Pew Places Left to Iowa.
Under Taft there will be left the follow
ing list of conspicuous positions, imc ot
which rre not very conspicuous: Thoma
C. DaWson, mlnUter to Colombia at U.00J
a year; irranK w. juanin, consul gentim
to Nottingham, England at $4,600; Al W.
Swalm. consul general to Southampton at
$4,600; Silas C. McFariand, consul-at-lare
at $4,500; Phillip C. Monterey, consul at
Monterey, at $3,600; Thomas R. Wallace,
consul at Jerusalem at $3,000; John E.
Rowen, consul at Point Sarnla, Faulkland
Islands, at $2,000.
According to the rule for distributing
political plums Iowa will be in a' position
to demand some of the really big plums
of the nation. The ambassadorships pay
$17,600 a year. There are but eight of them
taking In the biggest nations. Iowa may
not got one but then again It may. It has
no cabinet position and it doesn't seem
likely to get one and if it can produce
a big enough man for th Job it may get
a $17,000 ambassadorship which would cost
the occupant about twice that amount
About the only possibility of Iowa get
ting a cabinet position would be for Cunv
mine to be invited to th position of at
torney general. The governor, however,
and all hi friend expect him to go to the
senate and it la believed that the cabinet
position will be offered to Kellogg.
Mar Draw Ministership.
The next step down from ambassadoiihip
is that of a minister who draws $10,0U to
$12,600 a year and by representing the
United States at a smaller country 1 able
to savo some money out Of his salary. After
that come consuls who get but $1,600 a
year or less..
Aside from these positions there are a
pumber of positions in Washington that
will be made by the change In adiiimlstra
Hons from Roosevelt to Taft. Positions in
all the departments In' Washington will be
made liable to change and In the trdli.ury
course of events Iowa will be In an txel

that It has been handed down from on)

Some say that' It was at one time owned
by Ed Campbell of Fairfield. Ia.. who Is
now dead, and was chairman of the statd
committee twenty-five years ag.i. From
Hi it time it 1 said to have come down
tlnougii the hand of all sorts ot chairmen,
having done service for Ed II. Hunter,
whom the democrat afterward were ailo
to get rid of and whom the republicans
have been trying to shake off ever since.
There U a tradition that tbe bronze mule,
which ha assisted the Iowa committee -in
lighting many battles, assumes a very
bright and sparkling appearanc early in
every campaign. This of course may be
due to the fact that on being dragged out
of the closet at the opening of a campaign
the chairman take It upon himself th first
th ng to polish it up a bit. The tradition
goes on to say that a th campaign wear

Wc invite you to buy any rival beans and serve them with ours. It is easy
to say "Our beans are as good as Van Camp's." But compare them and
see. Serve both brands together and hear what your people say.
A great many people claim to sell beans that are just
as good as ours. We invite you to prove their claims.
It is a very easy matter to serve both brands together,
then take a vote of your table. Let the majority rule.
Do the same with your home-baked beans serve them
with Van Camp's. Ask your folks which they want

tory. The result is that superlative xest, that sparkling
It is easy to say "just as good." But the best way to
settle the question forever is to try the others and see.
One great difference usually lies in the original beans.
Some beans cost but a fraction of what we pay.
We buy only the choicest of Michigan beans, and have
them picked over by hand. We accept only the whitest,
the plumpest, the fullest-grown. All inferior beans are
The makers who use what we discard of course save a
great deal of money. That's why some beans are pushed.
Another great difference lies in the tomato sauce. We'
could buy sauce ready-made for exactly one-fifth what
we spend to make ours.
But we use only whole, vine-ripened tomatoes not
tomatoes picked green; not scraps from a canning fao-
Compare Van Camp's with your home-baked beans in
a similar way. And don't feel badly when your people
decide that ours are infinitely better. Consider the work
that you save.
People want their beans nutty, mealy and whole. They
want the skins unbroken. They want the tomato sauce
baked into the beans to give our delicious blend.
That's what they get in Van Camp's. The reason is,
we bake in live steam. You bake in dry heat. Your
beans are mushy, soggy and broken. Ours remain nutty,
because they are whole.
Yours are crisped on the top and half-baked in the
middle. Ours are thoroughly baked clear through.
Your beans are only partly digestible. They ferment
and form gas. Ours are wholly digestible they doa't
That's because of our terrifio heat. We separate the
particles so the digestive juices can get to them.
So it isn't your fault it's your lack of facilities that
makes our beans so much better than yours.
It is pleasant to know, in hot weather, that a dozen meals lie ready-cooked
on the pantry shelf. That's one delight in Van Camp's. Each can means
one delicious meal, fresh and savory, ready when you want it
To get the best beans, baked in the best possible way,
. is a very important matter.
Beans are Nature's choicest food. They are 23$
nitrogenous, 84 nutriment. They offer a greater food
value than meat, and at a fraction the cost.
Home-baked beans are not served very often, because
they are heavy and hard to digest.
Van. Camp's can be served every day. They are appe
tizing and hearty; all people like them.' And see how
much food you get for ten cents as compared with meat
. Suppose that beans not half so good do cost a trifle
less. Your people will eat less of them. And no food
that compares in nutrition is nearly so cheap as beans.
Van Camp's Beans, if you figure rightly, are cheaper
than home-baked beans; cheaper than the cheapest
brands. For you can serve Van Camp's five times where
you serve the others once. ;
Please try them and seecompare them and know.

best. Do this today you can't afford to wait
Three Sizes: 10, 15 and 20 cents per can
Van Camp Packing Company, Ettimd Indianapolis, Ind.
put Into permanent buildings and Improve
ment to be used for but two weeks of each
year for the state fair.
There are some features of the Iowa tat
fair that places It ln a class all by itself
and one of these Is the fact that It Is dis
tinctly a farmers' fair, an agricultural ex
hibit. There Is not another state fair In
the United States that has so many head
ot horse and cattle a Iowa. This year
the fair break all records by having 1,000
head of horses, Including those entered for
the races. No horse how ever ha more
than 30!) or 400 horses er-tered. No state
fair is In the same class with Iowa's. In
cattle there will be $00 head this year.
There are several hundred head of sheep
entered and the number of hogs, which I
limited only by the capacity to take care of
them. Is 3.000 head.
Allowing fifteen feet for the cattlo and
horses and six feet each for the sheep and
hogs, if all this live stock was put single
file In a parade, It would reach ten miles.
It would reach twenty times around the
race track on the stale fair grounds and
would make a parade ot twenty animals
abreast one time around the race track.
At no place in the country ran a farmer see
so much of the pure bred live stock to
gether as at the Iowa state fair, and the
farmer who makes a careful ludy of the
live stock orj exhibit this year will need
more than one day In which to ds It. A
hurried look through all the stables will
take nearly a day.
Thirty Acre of Farm Implements.
At stock. Implements and crop products
make up the bulk of the state fair. The
farm Implements will cover about thirty
acres, whlc'c Is all the ground that the
management can spare for it. H is prob
able that the next legislature will make a
purchase of about twenty acres ot land
north of the present race track and provide
for the moving of the race track north to
make more room for Implement.
Within the lat few days every effort ha
been marte to get a new barn completed
for the hor exhibit. It was found tht
In splto of the new 1M-I1I barn erectel
last year that the capacity of the barns
was 1R2 stalls short of the capacity for
handling tho exhibits of this year. There
was but fifteen days remaining till the fair,
but a contractor in Des Moines who
erected the building last year undertook
to duplicate the work this year and will
erect the tlO,"00 burn in fifteen day.
Jt la becoming apparent to the friend
of th ctate fair that before long there
will hav to be a new stock pavilion
erected. The fact is that it 1 needed now.
The plan for many yeai ha been to have
th cattle Judging every forenoon and
horte Judging every "evening. Thl worked
very well when the cattle exhibit num
bered about 400 head and th. horte ex
hibit about tl.o same number. Now, with
SOD head of cattle and the same number
of horse to be Judged, it 1 found that
there 1 not time enough to do It working
a half day each day during th fair on
each. Soon th. fair management will hav
to have a separate pavlllou in which to
Judge the horses and devote th. present
one exclusively to cattle.

street paving In Omaha and that ha I now
In the English metropolis to study creosote
paving and to secure from th British gov

J. J. Mahoney. associated With Charles
E. Fauilng, paving contractor, lay that
aa far aa he know Mr. McDonald ha not
laid a foot of paving In Omaha and ha
never been known a a paving roan. Mr.
Mahoney alio discounts th Omaha man's

by unscrupulous contractors.
