Reporter Who Campaigned With LaFollette In
Oregon Tells What Manner of Man He Is
BAN FRANCISCO, April 23.—
K. O. Shm.vit, jr., editor of the
Daily News of Portland, the only
dally of Importance in Oregon
which supported LaPoll -lie In
that state, accompanied the.Wis
consin senator flaring the Oregon
campaign. Hiding, walking and
talking with LaKoUetU*, - Sawyer
gained many impressions of "Bat
tle Bob" which he gives here ex
clusively for the Times. 'V
BY K. O. HAWVEH, JR.,
Editor the Dally News, Portland.
For seven days, in Oregon, I
was on the double quick, keeping
step with a chunky little man
whose iron gray hair stands
straight up. He has talked * tit
I me, argued with me and joked
with me, but most Important of
all, I have looked him square in
the eyes and I know that one of
tlieKo dags he is going to be presi
dent of the United States of
America-. You can see it In those

plow, goes through to the end of
LaFollette is honored among
his own people .We wound Wis
consin men who knew LaFollette.
And they were all for him.
I asked a former Wisconsin
"Well they ran the gamnt,
from calling him an upstart, then
denouncing him as 'tyrant' and
'demagogue' up there, in Wis
consin before they found out that
It wasn't Bob LaFolletto they
were fighting, but a principle.
Every time you knocked Bob
down he got up and went for you
harder. We know him now, and
we are for him."
That tells the whole story.
When you known "Bob" LoFol
lette you are for him. That's
why he is going to be president
of the United States. A good
many people don't know him,
yet. That's the meaning of re-

But how different it is with
Bob. He paid more attention to
tho rough-clad lumberjacks who
crowded around to shake his hand
I than he did to the mill owners in
the timber districts of Oregon.
| When a crying baby interfered
with one of his speeches in a
crowded hall, and the people
complained, he spoke to the
mother and told her not to wor
ry, but to take the little one to
the window where there was
more air, and by all means not
to leave the hall, because he had
a message for her that had to
do with her baby's career.
Was it jgrand-stand playing?
I asked him.
"Did you notice how neatly
she was dressed?" he said. "Do
you know I would have liked to
have talked to her and to have
found out how she gets along.
The cry of the baby attracted my
attention to her face. I could
of Beauty Culture
TO MAKE THE HAIR FLUFFY—
The reason most women's hair falls
to retain Its fluffy softness after
shampooing? Is due to the scalp not
being thoroughly cleansed. Soap,
egga and ordinary shampoo mix
tures will not remove all dirt. The
woman who wants a perfect sham
poo should try a teaspoonful of
canthrox dissolved In a cup of hot
water, followed by proper rinsing.
This shampoo causes the hair to
dry very quickly without streak-
Ing and leaveß the hair very bright
soft and easy to arrange.
FINE BEAUTY LOTION — No
modern discovery has proven such
a boon to woman's good looks as a
lotion made by dissolving 4 ounces
of spurmax In '•; pint of with hazel
(or hot water), then adding 2 tea
spoonfuls of glycerine. This is
very fine for Improving a shiny,
oily, sallow skin. It makes one's
complexion charmingly beautiful
and gives to It that much-admired
smooth, velvety appearance without
the powdered look. As a skin whlt
ener it la unequaled, and Is superior
to any face powder, because it stays
on much better.
REAL. FAT-REDUCER — Won
derful successes are reported from
the use of parnotis as a weight-re
ducer. Dissolve 4* ounces of par
notis in 1% pints of hot w;il4»'and
take atnblespoonf ul before meals.
This harmless remedy removes fat
rapidly without resorting to diet
ing or needless exercising. It
leaves the skin free from wrinkles
and flabblness, and has given re
lief to many who have been trying
vainly for years to remove their ex
cerro "make hairs vanish —
Make a paste with a little delatone
and water, then spread on hairy
surface. After two or three min
utes rub off, wash the skin and
the hairs are gone, while the skin
Is left smooth and firm. This Is a
quick, painless method, and rarely
falls to bring results. —Advt.

William Favershnm in the unique comedy success, "The
Faun," at the Tacoma theater.
William Faversham, who will
present his new play, "The
Faun," by Edward Knoblauch,
at the Tacoma tonight and
Wednesday, went to very great
trouble to achieve a realization
of the character he has been
called upon to impersonate. In
this play he is seen as a faun,
one of the deities of the woods
and herds, which is represented
as being half human. This
faun in Mr. Knoblauch's comedy
is first discovered bathing in a
fountain in the garden of a Lon
don house. He is dressed up as
a human being and given an op
portunity to mix with the work
a-day world. The result of Buch
a unique dramatic contrivance
may be easily imagined. This
comedy, by the way, contains a
delightful love story and has
proven one of the dramatic nov
elties of the time.
