Although Speaker Cannon's term does not ex
pire until March 4. 1911. the campaign as to who
will bo the next to occupy the speaker's chnlr
ts already being warmly contested. Many well
informed Democrats declare that Champ Clark of
Missouri, leader of the late Democratic minority,
seems slated for the speakership, although James
Hay of Virginia and Robert L. Henry of Texas
are active rivals for the place.
Horn In Kentucky In 18B0, Clark emigrated as
a comparatively young man to Missouri and also
had an early but brief experience In Kansas. In
1875 he located at Bowling Green. Mo., and be
gan the pructlse of law and In 1893 he was first
elected lo congress. Since then he has repre
sented his district continuously, with the excep
tion of one term.
Clark, like many other men who have made good, gives full credit to
his wife, llcfore she married Clark she was Miss Genevieve Bennett, a school
teacher, with a local reputation as an elocutionist. Clark was a young lawyer
without any marked promise of future greatness and mighty little chance
ever to shine as a self-composed, fluent speaker. His wife took htm tn hand,
drilled him tn elocution, drilled him In Delsarte until his gestures became
easy, and after each speech made by her husband while candidate for Prose
cuting Attorney of Tike County, she made little suggestions as to how his
speech might have been made more effective and pleasing.
The home life of the Clarks, It Is said. Is delightful just one little domes
tic cloud being known to the neighbors. This Is the antldy condition of the
library. Reserving to himself this room, Mr. Clark issued General Domestto
Order No. 1: "Nobody is allowed to touch the books and papers In the library
or attempt to clean up the room." Distinguished visitors come to the Clark
home often and aro delightfully entertained, the hostess making but one
request of her husband's friends: "Please don't go into Mr. Clark's library!"
Around the walls are bookshelves filled with volumes that show their
owner to be a student and a careful buyer of books. In the center of the room
Is a long table where things lie where they fall until the czar of the library
sees fit to move them. The room Is heated by an old llagcy stove, rd with
rust, and Its pipe Is fantastically draped with cobwebs.
His name Isn't "Champ" at all It's James Deaurhamp, the latter being
his mother's maiden name. Clark early mado up his mind that this was too
much of a name to carry Into politics, so ho shortened It to Champ, by which
he has become known to fame.

Exhibits of London Dressmakers Give
Fair Idea of What Is Going to
All the smart dressmakers In Lon
don have been exhibiting their new
models. The coat and skirt costumes
were chiefly of "ratine," the latest
novelty In materials, which when at
Its best resembles chamois leather In
appearance, but is as soft and warm
ss a good Harris tweed. Coats, of
course, were short and rather like the
reefer of several years ago, while
skirts, If not actually hobbled, were
tight to the hobbling point and much
.rimmed. House and evening gowns
were almost all fashioned with tunic
effect Sometimes the tunic was very
long. Sometimes It reached but a tit
le below the hips.
Black was much used to soften
vivid color effects. Thus, a frock of
jurple and green ba! a long tunic of
black net bordered with Persian trim
ming, while black and blue and black
and magenta were blended on various
evening gowns. Oriental embroideries,
dull silver and gold tissues and gem
studded braids were also In evidence.
Garlands of flowers wero used In trim
ming some of the dresses, and one
dainty pink and cream gown was
shackled with ropes of dainty little
roses veiled with chiffon.

If the skin happens to bo dry and
harsh, have you tried the soothing and
smoothing effect of the so-called Greek
bath? This was a favorite remedy of
the ancients and has been revived by
modern beauty doctors.

To got the best effects from thts
bath tho body should be kept very
warm during the rubbing. If hot
cloths are applied first to open the
pores more of the oil will be absorbed,
Take the baths three nights tn suc
