Wanderer Who Had Been
HIS WIFE HAD REMARRIED.
Children Hear a Strange Story
From His Lipe and Tell Him
Eemarriage and Death
of Their Mother.
Carllnvlllo, 111., May 1C A story rivaling
that of Enoch Arden came to light to-day
at Hettlck. a village In Macoupin County,
when William Cole, mourned for forty-seven
-tears as dead, returned to his old home, to
llnd that his wife had married again and
that his children, whom he left as young
ters, were grown to manhood and woman
hood and themselves married
Forty-seven jcars ago 'William Cole, then
a wealthy farmer, residing In the vicinity of
Hettlck, harnessed his team, bade his wife,
and family good-by and started for Ten
nessee to collect $1,703 from his estate, and
clos-e p his affairs In that State, from
which he had come a few years previous.
Trom that time to this he had not been
he.ird from and had been given up by his
wife and children as dead.
Tor -.ears his wife lived single, though
the believed him dead, but finally rem-ir-iled,
and the children grew to maturity,
married and scattered about the country.
In time the second husband died and anally
To-day he walked Into the village and In
quired what hart become of the family of
William Cole. He was directed to the home
of Mrs. Hallow and asked for a few days'
lioard. He asked the woman her past histo
ry, and she related the story of her fa
ther's disappearance as told to her years
ago by her mother.
When the daughter had ilnlshed her nar
mtlve the old man said simply: "I am he
of whom you speak. I am our father."
Tho aged wanderer has decided to make
his home In Hettlck, where he will spend
the remainder of his davs among his old
timo friends and acquaintances.
WHOLE TOWN WENT FISHING.
Sport Was Fine and Blooiniugton
Enjoyed Annual Outing,
nnpci ijc special.
Hloomlngton. IlL, May 16. This was the
annual free fishing day. when the people
f Bloomlngton were permitted to llsh in
the big lake at Miller Park. The day was
perfect and thousands enjojed the sport.
Bloomlngton Is at a disadvantage about
water privileges, owing to the absence of
nry river or lake except the one at the
park, and the annual privilege of fishing Is
looked upon as a holiday. The fish were
hungry and many fine catches of black bass
and catfish were reported.

A minister's wife had quite a tussle with
coffee and her experience is Interesting.
She sajs, "During the two cars of my
training as a nurse while on night duty I
became addicted to coifee drinking, for be
tween midnight and four in the morning.
whn the patients were asleep, there was
little to do except make the rounds, and It
v.as quite natural that I should want a
good, hot cup of coffee about that time. It
stimulated me and I could keep awake bet
ter. Aftr thre or four year of coffee drink
ing I became a nervous wreck and thought
that I simply could not live without my
coffee. All this time I was subject to fre
quent bilious attacks, sometimes so severe
us to keep me in bed for several days.
"After being married. Husband begged me
to leave off coffee, for he feared that It had
already hurt mo almost beyond repair, so
1 resolved to make an effort and release
raj salt from the hurtful habit. I began tak
ing Postum Food Coffee and for a few
days felt the languid, tired feeling from
the lack of tho stimulant, but I liked the
taste of Postum and that answered for the
breakfast beverage all right.
"Finally I began to feel clearer headed
-nd had ptoadicr terves. After a year'3
use of Posture I now feel like a new woman.
Have rot had nnv bilious attacks slr.ee I left
off coffee." This lady requests that her
name be kept from public print. Name

ZS'egro Republican Politician Tolls
of Impression He Made on
ROOSEVELT WAS EFFUSIVE.
Told "Corteljohn" to Withdraw
YWinlironner's Name for U.
S. Marshal and Substi
Captain Charlton It Tand.v. a leader
anions the negro Hepul llcaiis of Si. Liuls,
has received a telegram from Attorney
General Knox, asking him if he has with
drawn his Indorsement of A. I". Shriller,
secretary of the Republican Committee, for
United States Marshal. Captain Tandy has
answered that he had not, would not, and
that he Intended to set more indorsements.
For the last few months Captain Tandy
has been on the war path. Major Zlegen
hein failed to live up to expectations, ac
cording 'o the Captain, and the present
City Central Committee is continuing the
policy of Ignoring the negm Itepubllcans

However, Tandy wjs In earnest. A sub
scription was taken up ij the Wright Cu
ne Club and the Captain was sent to
Washington. Hi-, storv of that visit tells
the tale "You know how that big recep
tion room Is." he explains with much satis
faction. "Well, there as heaps of men
and women in there. The President, he
comes in and circles around until he comes
to me. He grabs me bv the hands with
both of his and sa--: 'Von make a good
impression on me. What Is it -.ou want""'
"Just then up steps Secretary Corteljohn
or what's his name and hind-, him a lettet
written by Senator Cockrell introdui ing
me. Corteljohn said that he hail not si en
such a strong letter for a long time. Well,
then tho president read It, and looking me
straight in the eye with those glasses of
his. listened to my story I had It all In a
nutshell. I sajs, 'Mr. Pre-Ident. I came
here to protest against the appointment of
George P. Weinbrenner as L'nlted States
Marshal. Ho refuses to put negroes on the
Jury lists. We haie L'.lmO votes In St.
Louis, some of us pay taxes and we don't
believe In taxation without representation.'
" 'Is that so?" the president spoke up
quick. 'Sure as I am aitve.' I answered.
'Does he permit that discrimination galnst
the negro? he asked again, 'lie certainly
doe".' I answers again. Then he wanted
to know whom I wanted appointed. I
showed him the Indorsements for Mr.
Shriner, who had proved a good frienft to
the negro. Then lie turned to Corteljohn
and mill. 'Tell the Attorney General to
withdraw Weinbrenner's mmeand give him
that of Shriner. We will look Into the
"And I tell you about the President.
When he looked so straight at me ami
listened to my story. I just talked up like
H man and growed at least twenty Inehes,
I know I did I nevor saw such an eagle
fe to read character. He sizes a man up
right on the spot. When I made my recom
mendation he snid that Booker 1 Waih
ington had fallen down In his recommenda
tions several times. Says I to him. 'Mr.
President, all of us negroes respect Wash
ington for the work he is doing to uplift
the race In the South, but lie knows noth
ing about politics. Politics," sajs I. 'Is the
science of government, and he don't know
no more about that than a hog does about
the heavenly choirs." "
During tho last few days. Captain Tandy
says he has received several tempting of
fers to withdraw his protest against Wein
brenner. "I don't know whatsvYlll become
of it all," lie said, "but 1 am going to
