smiling happily and showed unmistakably
his plessure at the warmth of the demon

bridge stood hi son Kermlt and Captain
Burmelster, commander of the vessel.
The big ship left Its pier at six minutes
past 11 o'clock and It slowly made its way
out Into the channel amid cheers that
completely drowned the music of the
bsnds. which were playing "The Ptar

Into the conversation with the Interjection:
"Some one told me, colonel, that you were
going to be our next president."
Mr. Roosevelt Immediately threw up both
hands and exclaimed:
"Good bys, gentlemen, good bye." But he
was still smiling when the Interview closed.
M. Jusserand, the French ambassador, and
Mrs. Jusserand. went aboard the steamer
shortly after Mr. iRoosevelt's party arrived
and were escorted to the Roosevelt quar
ters. They conversed with Mr. Roosevelt
for some time.
Trlbat of Italians.
A notable feature of the reception on the
steamer was a tribute to the ex-president
by the Italian Chamber of Commerce of
New York City. The body presented a
bronse tablet bearing on one side a portrait
of the ex-presldent and on the other the
acene of the Sicilian earthquake and a
representation of the Goddess of Peace
placing a wreath on Roosevelt's head. The
tablet was inscribed:
"To Theodore Roosevelt, to you and the
United States, a tribute of thanksgiving
from Italo-Amerlcans for generous help to
their stricken brethren of Calabria and
Several delegations from Italian societies
were present, bringing a band, a floral
offering and a large banner, which was
erected on the pier. It bore the Inscription:
'Italo-Amerlcans let us shout 'Long live
President Roosevelt and the United States."
A tribute of thanksgiving on behalf of out
brethren of Sicily and Calabria. Let us
solemnly condemn any crime staining
Italy's name. Let us here pledge our loy
alty to American Institutions. Long live
Thoaaaada Cheer Ex-President.
Shortly before the steamer sailed Mr.
Roosevelt, escorted by a detachment of
local police, appeared at the after gangway,
which led to the pier. The police had cleared
an open space across the pier to the point
where the Italian-American organisation
had a bronze tablet in readiness to present
him. The appearance of Mr. Roosevelt was
the slgnsl for tremendous cheering by the
crowds on the pier and on the steamer's
deck. As he csme down the gangplank the
cheering continued and a party of college
boys from Stevens institute in Hoboken let
loose their college yell. On the way across
the pier the lines of police escorting Mr.
Roosevelt were broken through by the pres
sure of the eager crowd and the ex-president
was swept tomsrd the tablet by ths
rush. The crowd closed In solldiy behind
him, and while the police were endeavoring
to fight off the on-rush Mr. Roosevelt asked
the speakers to make the presentation cere
mony very brief. The Italian orator cut
short his lengthy address, briefly stating
that the tablet was presented by the Ital
ians In appreciation of what Mr. Roosevelt
had caused to be done for the suffering
people of southern Italy and Calabria. Mr.
Roosevelt In reply said:
"I appreciate this very much. I want to
thank all. I cannot tell you how deeply
touchej I am."

Mr. Roosevelt, seeing that the crowd was
becoming unmanageable, gave directions
that the tablet be sent to Mrs. Roosevelt
and turned back toward the forward gang
plank of the steamer. The police did their
best to clear a way for him, but the crowd
became demonstrative and many persons
tried to shake the ex-presldent's hand. The
police took a firm grip on the situation,
pushed back the crowd and rushed Mr.
Roosevelt towara the steamer. In the pro
cess two of the policemen were knocked
off their feet, but were not injured. As he
neared the gangplank, Mr. Roosevelt's hst
flew off and a vacuum bottle which had
been presented him by a party of Pitts
burg friends at the pier, waa knocked from
his hand. Mr. Roosevelt kept right on and
reached the gangplank In safety. The crowd

Mr. Roosevelt then retired to the steam
On his return to the steamer after hie
experience on the pier, Mr. Roosevelt found
hundreds of friends wishing to bid him
God speed. A line was formed leading to
the outer door of his suite and the ex
presldent stood there and shook the hands
of the multitude that passed, among them
being not a few women. To all he ex
pressed his thanks. Everywhere he moved
outside his apartments he could not escape
the leavetakers. More than once he was
nearly Jostled off his feet and on one oc
casion was saved by a policeman from a
fall at the edge of a short flight of steps.

diality arr3 cheerfulness and his broad
smile never left him. testifying unmistak

The baking qualities of this flour could
be put to no test more severe. For in every
point the bread was subjected to the criti

bread made from all the standard flours.
The outcome of the contest, however;
only adds emphasis to our oft-repeated as
sertion, "Bulte's Best is the best flour

best from the miller's standpoint, but from
that of the kitchen as well, where you are
