Margaret Puckette of this city:
"Well, the great even happened
yesterday and I in glad it s all over,
Mr. Harding sure did have a wonder-1
ful day for his inauguration. It was
clear and sunshiny, though pretty cold
In spite of the omission of the parade
ball, etc , the town was simply packed
tho all flags were at half mast because
of Champ Clark's death. The reserved
seats were very limited and you had
to have tickets for them and the
tickets of course were not for sale, but
rc givcn to cach member. Senator.
etc No member had over four tickets
Mr. McDuffy was perfectly lovely to
John and gave him two tickets so
we were mighty close to the Presi
dent. Couldn't have been more than
twelve feet away, which was certainly
a privilege. Theodore Roosevelt. Jr.,
was within a foot of me Wouldn't
you think from his pictures, that he
was a great big husky man? Well he
isn't, he is mighty diminutive.
The inauguration was rather solemn
and beautiful. It was expected to take
place about 12 o'clock, but it didn't
start until about 2 or after. You see
the 60th, Congress had to be absolute
ly wound up and dead be
fore the new administration could
Harding took his oath on the Cap
itol steps, and by the aid of an ampli
fier his speech could be heard for 3-4
of a mite. It is a little electrical mach
ine that rested on the stand in front
of him and carried his voice to the
thousands standing around.
After the oath was taken the Marine
band played the "Star Spangled Ban
ner" and all the men stood with hats
off, and not a sound was heard. Then
came his address. It was a wonderful
speeh and if he means it we will have
a glorious administration. He is cer
tainly against the League and says
'abnormal prices can be reduced and
they must.' That sounds good doesn't
Poor Mr. Wilson rode to the Cap
itol with the inaugural party, but he
had to be lifted into the machine. He
has no control over one side of his
body. It's very sad to think how he
has broken himself down in the ser
vice of his people,
Everyone says he
will not live long,
The White House grounds audi
Mansion are wide open to the people I
as in the days of Roosevelt,, lhis p.
m .as I came from work there were
several hundred people on the lawn
and the big iron gates were wide open
with not even a guard at the gates.
That is going to make a big hit with
the people." Hancock Clarion.

handed in by the following companies:;

tne imis tnc contract was let to Ar-

might be proper to say that the price
of fertilizer is in a very unsettled
condition. Farmers would not stand
for the nrire pivrn nut nt iti- ctnrt
which was about $:il per ton after-
i words reduced to $28.
The Farm Bureau has lowered all
these prices and it will be well for
fanners at once to sec the agents of
the Bureau who are taking orders for
carload lots. It is to be regretted very
much that some interests seem oppos- .
eel to the farm uureau or any other

organizations of farmers who buy
fertilizer and other goods nee

titles and at wholesale prices. We tin-
derstand that sonic of these interests
are inclined to cut under any price

order to cripple the organization and
renect discredit upon it. i
It is well known now. that the Farm'
Bureau has brought down the price'
ot fertilizer, field seeds, and other
commodities to an astonishing degree.
