Jerry Howard Sits
Guard at Demo Camp
Over Wilson Picture
Dlsrhmld Howard put one over Tuesday
afternoon on the people in charge of the
democratic headquarters In the Paxton
hotel. Mr. Howard, better known as
"Jerry," Is a warm admirer of Governor
Woodrow' Wilson of New Jersey. "He Is
a raparee In politics," says Jerry, "and
naturally he wins my sympathy, since I
have been fighting the powers that be In
democratic politics for many years."
Howard walked Into the Paxton Head
quarters with an Innocent looking bundle
in his hand. After exchanging the time
of day with ihe .man left In charge he
proceeded to open h's bundle and dis
closed two large lithographs of Governor
Wilson, with this inscription underneath:
"Governor Woodrow Wilson, 'the man
of 'the hour' He will be our next presi
dent. The people want a progressive,
popular - leader, an agitator, if you
Without asking for or waiting for per
mission. Howard proceeded to tack up his
lithographs and then, turning to the as
tonished litle group of Haj-mon boosters,
he said:
"I want there pictures left up in these
headquarters, and any man that pulls
them down while I am around will do so
over my dead body. Some people, when
they are knocked down, stay there; but I
rebound all the higher. The people, par
ticularly the workers, have the best Idea
of what they want and how to get it, re
gardless of what all the colonels In Ne
braska may say. and "
"Do you allude to Colonel Bryan?"
asked Charley Epstein, as he turned from
the pictures.
"I mean all the colonels," retorted
Howard. "and that includes Colonel
Maher, Colonel Bryan. Colonel Tanning
and the whole bunch It also Includes
the political manipulators and dictators,
and we want to serve notice they can't
force any of their cnosen favorites upon

' You don t. eh?" queried he South
Omaha firebrand. . as he smacked his
hands together. "l me see someone
take them down. And let me tell you
something. -Mr. Ttils republic had a
liberator f6r Us first president, and it
had an emancipator, too. Now the liuie
has come for a ,iiir;'ler. and Governor
Wilson is the ma:! The Omaha gang or
all the colonels from here to O'Neill, or
all the party dictators combined can't
defeat the will ol the people thin time."
Then Howard sat -down to await de
velopments, and looked In the humor to
defend his act. At last accounts he was
still l-eeping guard over the Wilson
Hastings Carnival
to Open Next Week
' Omaha doesn t have anything on
Hastings." confided R. D. McFadden,
who Is here to look the town over for
flaws, fleck awav the particles of dust
and pick off the raveling ' You have
your Ak Sar-Ben. and I will not argue
that It is not. a good show, hut mind you,
we have our Ytuuoc Smada! So there: '
The Ytnuoc Smada opens In Hastings
on October 9th and continues until the
14th. Mr. McFadden, who edits a trade
Journal when he is not busy exploiting
the wonders of Hastings, Is hr to get
some ideas and book some of the attrac

claims fur the U'll Ytnuoc Smada.

Every Woman Haa a Per

Did if e er occur to you that very
v oiii.m has the pink and whit
bloom of childhood underneath the
harsher snd muddler outer nkln?
This ou'er skin has so long been
bearing ihe shock and stress of
weather, work and worthless cos
metics, n earn, etc., that It effectu
ally conceals the real complexion.
It haa lately been discovered that
ordinary old-fashioned coleated bal
sam If applied to the face will
quickly flecks off the objectionable
particles of dead and disfiguring
outer akin, revealing the true fresh
complexion underneath.
Pure coleated balsam can be had

such as sallowness, pimples, liver
