THE WASHINGTON TIMES, WKDNKSDAY, NOVEMBER Cyf912,
'Demonstration With Brass
lL Band Held on Down-
One of the earliest celebrations over
the" election of Woodrow Wilson to the
Presidency took place last night with
the parado started by members of the
district Democratic Association. The
demonstration began at 11:30 o'clock,
rhen the association, headed by a brass
band, left the IlalelKh Hotel, marched
through the streets, serenaded other
lJemocratlo clubs and the newspapers,
and made a generally' Joyous outcry
tn appreciation of the election.
Among tho first telegrams of con
gratulation to President-elect Wilson
was one sent by lMwIn A. Newman,
president of the association. Ho said:
"Heartfelt congratulations and pray
ers for your successful administration,
1 destined to occupy a large space In
our country's history."
A noticeable fact In connection with
the election was the early hour at which
the result was known. The Times pub
lished tho first extra at about 7 o'clock
llh first new.
Crowds b2gan to gather about the
street at an carlv hour. Supporters nf
the different political parties gathered
nt headquarters or other places desig
nated and listened to the reading of
bulletins of returns, or wandered about
the streits and watched the bulletins
displayed by tho newspapers. Thou
sands visited the theaters, where elec
tion returns were read from the stage
or thrown on ecieens.
At Democratic hcadquaiteis, In the
Itlggs building, among those presont
were John P. Costello, National Demo
cratic Committeeman, and Mrs. Cos
tello, Charles W. Darr. Henry E. Davis,
ond Charles A. Douglas. Members of
the Women's Democratic League visited
headquarters with their friends In the
evening. Early In the evening, as soon
fcs the result seemed reasonably ccrtatn,
congratulations were received from
"rank J. Hogan, national committee
man for the Progressive party, and
from Mathew E. O'Uricn, of tho Pro
National Committeeman Hogan con
ceded defeat early In the evening. He
turns were received at his of rice by
special wire and numerous friends
visited there to learn the result.
"Ono of the most significant things
.bout the present election Is the show
ing made Jy Colonel Roosevelt, espec
ially In the Southern States," he said.
The result may be regarded as a pro
test against the methods used at the
Chicago convention to nominate. Mr.
"I am sure that the next Administra
tion will be better for tho Progressive
Movement, In spite of the present do
feat, and that the old political ring,
which has dominated affairs of the
Government for so many years, will
pever again be an effective force.

Lads Who Took Sanitation
Dr. J. J. Murray, member of the

INTEREST IN RESULT
MANIFEST IN ENGLAND
Newspapers Print Long Account of
Wilson's Elccion, Withholding
LONDON, Nov. (.-Englishmen dis
played moro Interest today In tho Am
erican election result than they have
over manifested In the outcome, of any
similar contest In the past.
On account of tho difference In time,
only night hawks knew of Wilson's
overwhelming victory before the early
editions of today's afternoon newspapers
appeared. They contained long stories
of the battle of the ballots, with tol
erably Intelligent explanations of the
cauren and' probable effect of the Dem
ocratic victory, but as yet there lias
been practically no editorializing.
V consensus of the correspondents'
opinions seemed to be that Wilson's
clectlom amounted to an overthrow of
reaction without too pronounced a shift
of American public sentiment In favor
of extreme radicalism.
A Serious Joke on
The U. S. Gov't has been experimenting to dis
cover the poisonous quality of Caffeine (found in
57 healthy rabbits were given an average dose of
5 1-10 grains.
They All Died
See Gov't Bulletin No. 148,
Bureau of Chemistry
A cup of coffee contains over 2l2 grains of Caffeine; enough in two cups to
kill a rabbit.
Of course this joke was on the rabbits.
A goodly number of humorous Americans play the same joke on themselves
and keep it up until some fixed form of disease sets in, as a result of the daily
dose of Caffeine, in quantity enough to kill a rabbit, but only enough to
Cripple a Man
Not at one blow, but by
little blows repeated daily.
Of course some systems are strong enough to stand all kinds of abuse, but
when a man or woman observes a growing nervousness,- or heart trouble, stom
ach, bowel or eye disturbances, it is time to quit the daily dose of coffee and see if
Nature will begin to heal.
It is easy to shift from coffee to Postum. The food beverage has the deep,
seal-brown color which turns to a golden-brown when cream is added. The flavour
has the crisp twang so winning to the palate and the cup is made instanter by one
struck spoonful of the powder,
stirred in a cup of hot water, and there you are.
The change from coffee to Postum works wonders.
