Since we are to elect a president a
week from today, a few facts about
our presidents are interesting right
nowi ," ' '"' .. . .
Though neither of our .principal
candidates this year was ever a sol
dier, more than half of our chief ex
ecutives, were soldiers before they
were presidents. '
You probably don't know that Lin
coln was a soldier. He was a captain
of volunteers in the Black Hawk war
of 1832.
Washington, Monroe and Jackson
were soldiers in the Revolution; Jack
son, W. H. Harrison, Tyler, Taylor
and Buchanan in the war .of 1812;
Taylor, Pierce and Grant in the Mex
ican war; Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Ar
thur, . B. Harrison and McKinley in
the civil war; and Roosevelt in the
-Spanish-American war. ,
Cleveland was the only man mar-
it in the White House. He was a
tielor when elected. So was Buch-
but Buchanan remained a
helor. Monroe's daughter, Grant's
lKhter. Roosevelt's daughter and
ilson's two daughters were married
i the White House. The wives of
Tyler, Benjamin Harrison and Wilson
died in the White House. vThe only
president s child born the White
House was the second daughter of
Cleveland. - .
rresiaent jonn uuincy saams was
the son of President John Adams.
And President Harrison Was the
andson of President William Henry
arrison. ;
Lincoln-Davis Likeness.
Remarkable coincidences are noted
in the lives of Abraham Lincoln,
president of the union, and Jefferson
Davis, president ot the confederacy,
Both were born in Kentucky, Davis
in 1808 and Lincoln in 1809. Both re-
moved from that state in their child
hood, Lincoln to the" northwest,
Davis to the southwest. Both were
.in the Black Hawk war, Lincoln as
captain of volunteers and Davis as
second lieutenant of regulars. They
began their political careers in the
same year, 1844, Lincoln as a presi-,
dential elector tor Llay and Davis
for Polk. They were elected to con-
ss in consecutive years, 1845 and
16. Davis became president of the
confederacy February 8, 1861, and
Lincoln became president, of the union

Presidential Term.
The presidential term of. four years
was fixed by the constitutional con
vention. 1 he hrst report of the com
mittee there favored a term of seven
tion. In debate, various terms fromN
during good behavior to twenty
years were favored. The limit to
four years was finally adopted.
The same convention debated titles
for the president, some favoring "His
Excellency" and others "His High
ness, finally n was decided that 'it
is not proper to annex any style or
title other than that expressed in the
constitution," and therefore the ad
dress of the president is simply "The
rresiaent ot the United States. I-

Auburn-Haired Wives Do Not
Break Into the Local Divorce Courts
Douglas County judges and attaches
of the divorce courts agree "with
Judge Cox of Chicago that husbands'
don't desert wives with auburn hair
(correctly called by some "red hair").
The Chicago judge, who has been
sitting on the bench in the Windy
City's divorce court for many years,
commented on the fact that the auburn-haired
women make the best
wiv . Now a few local authorities
are willing to back Judge Cox up in
his assumption.
' Miss Charlotte Martin, secretary in
the office of County Attorney Mag
uey, has-been observing wives who
Thieves Cut Three
Locks to Steal One
Large Touring Car
While Dr.'and Mrs. I. C. Wood of
3202 Woolworth avenue were peace
fully sleeping in their chambers on
east side of their home Tuesday morn
ing at 2 o'clock thieves cut through
three locks on the garage on the west
side of the house and helped them
selves to their big new touring car.
The marauders experienced some
trouble in starting the car, but fi
nally sailed into, the stone wall which
surrounds Jthe lawn of the Wood
home, with "the result, that one of the
heavy stone-copings wa5 knocked off.
Mrs. W. A. Woodard, who lives next
door at 3216 Woolworth avenue, was
awakened by the noise and telephoned
to Dr. and Mrs. Wood as soon as pos
sible, but the car thieve' had made
their getaway. '
Dr. Wood tailed in the police and
chase was given. At 9 o'clock in. the
morning the car was discovered about
a mile from the house. The joyriders
had been unfamiliar with the working
of the car and when the engine went
dead on them they had been unable
to mix ajr and gas in such fashion
as to start the car. In spite of its
collision with the stone wall the car
was very little injured.
Mystery Marks Man's
Disappearance, Hat
Found On the Bridge
The finding of a hat belonging to
John Mitchell, aged 25, night watch
man on the new Union facihe bridge,
has led the police to believe that he
fell into the river. It is. supposed
that while Mitchell was -making his
rounds he stepped into an open space
in the bridge, which is only partly
completed, lost his footing and fell.
Mitchell lives at 1009 Pacific. He
had been married for two years. Po
lice are searching for the body.

charging desertion for the last five
"I've noticed every kind of hair
on the heads of wives who visit this
office to file complaints, but in my
five years of observation I can't recall
having seen an auburn-haired
woman." '
Both Judge Day and Jydge Leslie
agree that, on the face of things,
the auburn-haired helpmates must be
the truest. . Neither could remember
of a case where a titian-haired wife
appeared in divorce court and alleged
desertion.- . '
Street to Be Kept -Open
All Week for
Closed par Salon
No . autos are to be parked on
Douglas street between Seventeenth
and Eighteenth streets for the re
mainder of the week because of the
closed car salon which is to be held
for the next four days on the main
floor of the Brandeis stores. Chief
Dunn has assigned six policemen to
keep this street open that it may be
used for demonstrations. It will not
be closed to traffic, but no one will
be permitted to park cars there.
The novelty of having an auto dis
play in one of the big stores seems
to have made a decided hit with the
dealers and also with the public, judg
ing from the interest which is being

crowds found what exciting sport was
in store tor them.

where he has been summering, and
have entered him in some of the main
events. The big jacks have been
brought from Kansas, where they are

They have shut the small fry out of
the speculative grain business and
now anyone who wants to take a flyer
in futures, unless he is a reliable re
putable and well known dealer',' is
forced to put up a margin of 30 cents
per bushel if he makes a trade.
Originally trades were made on a
margin of one-eighth of a .cent per
bushel. Then the margin went to a
cent; later to 2 cents, then it went to
5, and still later to 10 cents per hush
el. Now word comes from Chicago
that the Board of Trade is exacting
30 cents, and Omaha has dropped in
line. While this has pot curtailed the
volume of the cash, it has just about
killed off the option business. How
ever, when prices again become stable
margins are expected to go back.
On the Omaha cash grain market
there was little excitement. While
prices held firm on high-grade stuff,
there was a decided decline in all
graias of the lower grades. Wheat
was off 2 to 3 cents, corn 1 to 2 cents
and oats yi to M of a cent.
With 124 carloads of wheat on sale
the top price was $1.82. with the bulk
of it selling between $1.76 and $1.80
per bushel.

Revealing Today
the .Chalmers Sedan
I am revealing today the newest creations in Chalmers cars. The body is
different from anything you have seen.
And the lines are different too very refreshing, like a breath of crisp autumn
air drawn deep into the lungs. - t T
The body strikes a new note. It is a compromise between a limousine and an
open touring car. A limousine in winter. A touring car in summer.
You simply remove the windows with their , supporting frame, put them away
in a Special cod partment back of the rear seat. It's but a few moments work
and the transformation is complete. ' - '
The top is a permanent roof, built and trimmed as a part of the body not
one of the so-called detachable type tops.
I could go on at length Bedford cloth upholstery, silk curtain t rear win
dow, reading lamp, a dome lamp, which lights when the door is open. But I
prefer to tell you all this and far more when you see the car.
The price t am proud of. I didn't know it could be done. $1780 Detroit
