WILSON SPEAKS OF
President Says "We Can All
Address Ourselves to Wel
fare of Nation."
SPEAKS TO A DELEGATION
Williamstown, Mass.. Nov. 11.
"Now that the campaign is over we
may all address ourselves to the wel
fare of the nation without thought
of partisan feeling," declared Presi
dent Wilson in his first public
speech since the national election, de
livered before a delegation of Will
iamstown residents and Williams col
lege students, who greeted him late
yesterday. The president was wel
comed by the students and townspeo
ple after the christening of Eleanor
Axson Sayre, the second child of his
daughter, Mrs. Francis B. Sayre, and
for whom he stood as godfather.
Soon after his arrival at the home
of his son-in-law, assistant to the
president of Williams college, the
delegation, headed by President H. A.
Garfield, of the college, inarched to
the Sayre home. The president spoke
from the porch of the house and was
cheered enthusiastically by the stu
dents. Comes to Rest and Forget. '
"I came here to forget the field of
politics and for a brief rest. I came
simply to visit my daughter and to
attend a simple ceremony here to
day," he said. "Now that the cam
paign is over we may all address our
selves to the welfare of the nation
without thought of partisan feeling."
The president referred to his serv
ice as chief executive of Princeton
university, saying he knew from ex
perience there was politics even in the
running of a college.
"Politics," he continued, "is, after
all, a means of getting something
done; of putting forward ideas. It is
a fight, but the man who does not
love the fight has no red blood in
He Tells a Story.
Mr. Wilson told a story of a man
having a vision in which he was of
fered a horn and a sword and chose
the horn. Immediately the vision
vanished and the- man was cursed
for taking the horn before the
sword. He told the story to illus
trate the necessity for fighting.
Baby Cries AU the Time.
Soon after his arrival with Mrs.
Wilson, Miss Margaret Wilson and
Miss Helen Woodrow Bones, his
cousin, the president went to St.
John's Protestant Episcopal church
to attend the christening. The fam
ily party rode the few blocks to the
church in an automobile. The baby
cried continuously. Inside the
church only a few intimate friends of
Mrs. Sayre witnessed the ceremony.
As one of the godfathers of the
baby President Wilson promised, in
the name of the child, to "renounce
the devil and all his works."
Leaves This Afternoon.
Tonight the family had dinner to
gether at the Sayre home. The
president will remain here until 5:25
o'clock tomorrow afternoon and
then will return to Washington,
where he is due to arrive Sunday
night. Tomorrow he wil' lain
quietly with his family.
On his way here the president was
cheered by crowds at Troy and sev
eral other towns in New York and
Massachusetts. Railroad engineers
blew shrill blasts cn their whistles as
he passed their locomotives.
Will is Filed, but
It Wm Not Be Bead
Tor Some Time Yet
Wanted Someone who is not
afraid of germs to read a will just
filed with the clerk of the county
court Apply to Clyde C. Sundblad.
Reposing behind a mass of old rec
ords in a dark recess of the vault in
the office of the clerk of the county
court and safe from the hands of the
curious, is an old tin can. In the can
is a will, providing for the disposi
tion of the estate of an Omaha man,
who recently died from a contagious
But the will hasn't as yet been
opened and read. In fact, the offi
cials in the office in question won't
even touch the can containing the
will. And they won't touch it until
the formaldehyde placed in the can
has done its work.
When the will was brought into
the office to be filed for probate, and
the nature of the diseased man's
death was made known, there was a
rush for the formaldehyde bottle and
the nearest garbage can. So the con
tents of the will will not be known
for a while, at least.

"Dry" Election Bet
Still Going Damp
John Jobst, who resides three
blocks north of police headquarters,
made a bet with Chief of Detectives
Steve Maloney that if the president
were 're-elected he would never take
another drink of liquor. Maloney bet
the same way on Hughes. The
wager was to go into effect just as
soon as the election was definitely
decided, and this morning a big ar
gument was on, Jobst insisting on
hoisting a few, because he firmly as
serts that the official count will re
turn Hughes a winner.
And, anyway, he learned after the
bet was made that Steve never
touches a drop.

Must contain a good treatment for colds, coughs
and catarrhal troubles.
It must contain a reliable treatment for disordered
digestion, impaired appetite, etc.
It must also have a good tonic to restore strength
after illnesses, to overcome depression and nervous
ness. These three lines of physical trouble are all
closely allied. One good remedy will treat all of them
successfully in most cases.
PERUNA Is Indispensable
It's the one remedy that covers all of these various complaints,
and it is the one remedy that has won a strongly entrenched position in the American
home, as a result of forty-five years of successful ministration.
Peruna is insurance. Its prompt use has beaten off many a serious attack, and it
has conquered catarrh of many years' standing.
In its liquid form it has well established itself, solely on its merits, and in the tab
let form thousands rely upon it to give quick aid.
Manalin is another indispensable. It is the ideal laxative and liver tonic. Ideal be
cause it is effective, mild and pleasant, and because it overcomes the difficulty with
out forming a habit. Used rightly, it often is the means of restoring correct bowel action.
In the liquid form it has been used almost as long as Peruna, and in the new tablet form it la delightful to
the taste, convenient in administration, safe for invalids and children, and promptly effective.
These medicines are standard in the homes of thousands. Merit has won success.
