velt It was not the fault of the vigorous
sa-prestdent. lie did not demur to a single
task that had beta set for htm by a com
mittee of more than 100 active men. He did
all they asked him to do and more, too. He
asked to be driven further about the city
than planned, arid staid longer at every
point where a stop was made than was ex
pected. Including the time allotted for his
speech In Bayliss park, lie was only ex
pected to talk there for a few minutes, but
he spoke for mora than half an hour, going
from one side of the platform to another,
and literally talking to all points of the
compass, In the hope that the sea of peo
pie who surrounded him would at least get
a chance to see his face, even If most of
them were so far away that they could
not hear his vole.
From the moment he appeared nt the rear
platform ' of his train, wiilcli arrived on
time to atmont the second, until he returned
to It after an absence ot considerably mote
than the allotted hour, his face was a
wreath t smiles .and his vigorous frame
seemed to scintillate good nature and
Thoae with Km-Presldent. .
Seated In the automobile were Congress-
wan Walter I. Smith, whom Roosevelt con
stantly patted on the shoulder as the ma
chine passed through the thronged streets;
Robert Bruce Wallace, local leader of the
progressive republicans and the active lieu
tenant Of Senator Cummins, and H. A.
Searl. who wight have been taken to rep
resent the non-political business Interests'
of the community.
On the return down Oakland avenue the
Roosevelt auto was compelled to pass the
full length of the automobile train, which
was more' than half a' mile long, and thus'
received a little extra In the way Of an
ovation. - (
The next extreme point 'visited was East
Pierce street, a mil away, where the au
toa stopped at the Wilcox greenhouses
(and Mr. Rlsvelt was preeented to the
family of Mr. Wilcox. After cordially
shaking her hand, and congratulating her
upon the splendid home she was enjoying,
he called Mrs. Wilcox back when fold that
she was the mother of five boys and again
vigorously shook her hand as he said, "You
are the kind of American women we want,

While the auto waa standing and Mr.
Koosevelt waa expressing hi astonishment
that such a great greenhpus could be
built up In Council Bluffs, a number ot
Mr. Wilcox's employes appeared bearing
a hug sheaf of American Beauty rosea
which they presented to him. In addition
to this offering a splendid bouquet of Ameri

velt pushed Its way through the crowd
and stopped at the foot of the step leading
to the platform which had been erected
en the north side of Bay II as park, convert
ing the whole four acres of the park and
the adjoining streets Into an audieno area.
Nearly the whole space was filled and
more than i.000 people Joined their
voice In a mighty shout when the colonel
appeared on the platform. General O. M
Dodge, wh was expected to preside at
the attesting was unable to be present.
A fill the speech Colonel Roosevelt waa
hustled Into the auto and whirled to the
Northwestern depot, reaching It nearly
thirty minutes behind the schedule time,
The crowd that had gathered to see him
depart was much larger than the multi
tude that welcomed him. This waa due
to the fact that hundred's ot farmers'
carriage and automobiles had arrived In
town after tb program began, bringing an
