TAFT 1B NOMINATED.
The Colonel Beat to a Frazde
and His Hat Kicked Out
of The Ring
Chicago, June 22.-With
nearly 350 of the Roosevelt dele
kates declining to vote and hast
ning away at adjournment
me toitender to Col. Theodore
oosevelt the nomination of a
Inew party the fifteenth Republi
can national convention at the
z ad of a long and tumultuous
session tonight renominated
Win. Howard Taft, of Ohio for
president and Jas. Schoolcraft
Sherman of New York for vice
oresident.
President Taft received 561 of
t1he 1078 votes in the convention
or 21 more than a majority.
The decision of the Roosevelt
people. under direction of their
4ader, to refrain from voting,
left no other candidate near the
--resident. The announcement
)f the Taft victory was greeted
vith cheering from his adher
eats and groans and hisses from
the oppositiod.
When it became 'absolutely
certain early today that Mr.
Taft would be nominated with
,'ut great difficulty, the leaders
in controlof the convention de
give him as running
-Iate his companion on the
icket in 1908.
All others dropped from the
ace and Mr. Sherman was the
nily candidate regularly placed
before the convention. A mo
tion from New Hampshire. to
raiake the nomination by ac
elamnation was declared out of
order, There were many scat
tering votes on the roll call that
~%I.envention, amid much
-onfusiona'ifjourned sine die.
At no time was there an indi
cation of a walkout of Roose
velt delegates. They expressed
Sheir revolt by silence.
In the confusion just before
1adjournment a resolution was
adopted giving the national
c ~ommittee power to declare va
'cant the seat of any man on the
committee refusing to support
the nominees of the regular con
vention of 1912.
Sherman's xote was 597.
The revolt of many of Roose
velt's delegates in the conven
tion was open from the moment
he permanent roll containing
the names of the contested dele
* ates was approved. A "vale
dictory" statement was read in
behalf of Col. Roosevelt asking
hat his delegates sit in mute
protest against all further pro
ceedings.
1 great majority of the Roose
felt delegates in the Illinois and
all in the Missouri and Idaho
delegates declined to follow this
- bt Col. Roosevelt's
.Wy 7'over the delegations from
California, Kansas, Maine, Min
nesota Nebraska, New Jersey
Pennsylvania, South Dakota
and West Virginia was all but
- absolute.
Most of the delegates from
these States announced their
purpose of helping to give Mr.
Roose'elt an independent nomi
nation at another ball later in
tie evening. The split in the
onvention occasioned no sur
rise. It was but a fullfilment
f predictions. that had been
made during the past several
day.
The closing scenes of the con
Lvention were marked by counter
emonstrations for Taft and
Roosevelt.
The first test vote after the
anounce of the Roosevelt vale
aictory camne on the adoption of
the party platform. The affirm
ative vote was 666. Roosevel
delegates present and not votin
numbered 34. There were 5~
-noes, 36 of them from the La
Follette States of Wisconsin
and North Dakota.
Senator Robt. M. LaFollett
of Wisconsin, was placed befort
the convention, but Col. :Roose
velt's wishes were carried ou1
by his follower; and they re
mnained silent during the call o
the States for nomninations.
Many of the delegates, how
ever, carried out their primar'
instructions and voted for th<
colonel.
On the voting for presiden
Sthe Roosevelt delegates again a
a rule remained silent. The de
.tailed vote was: Taft 561
-z.oosevelt 107; LaFollette 41
C ~umins 17; Hughes 2; No
-v-etng 344; absent 6.

New Party to be Launched
Chicago, June22, ex President
Theodore Roosevelt was nomi
nated for president on an inde- a
pendent ticket tonight in the dy
ing hours of the Republican na- -
tional convention in which he
had met defeat, amidst wildest
enthusiasm.
The followers of Roosevelt T
gathered in Orchestra hall, less F
than a mile from the Coliseum, a
and pledged their support to the R
former president.
In accepting the nomination,
Roosevelt appealed to the people
of all sections, regardless of par
ty affiliations, to stand with the e
founders of the new party, one
of whose cardinal principles, he o
said, was to be, "thou shalt not e
steal."
The informal nomination of i
Roosevelt was said to be chiefly
for effecting a temporary organ
ization. Beginning tomorrow,
when a call is to be issued for a
State convention in Illinois, the
work will be pushed forward
rapidly, state by state.
At a later time, probably - in
early August, it is intended that
a national convention shall be
held.
- Roosevelt, in accepting the
nomination tonight, said he did
so understanding that he would
willingly step aside if it should
be the desire of the new party,
when organized, to select anoth
er standard bearer.
NEW PARTY
Chicago, June 23.-The "Pro
gressive" party, born last night,
was: dedicated today. In the
presence of perhaps 500 men;
some of them recognized leaders
of the movement, others merely
onlookers, the first formal step
was taken. Gov. Johnson, of
California, was empowered to
appoint a committee of seven
members to confer with Roose
velt and formulate a plan of ac
tion.
"The movement is going
steadily ahead," said James R.
Garfield, of Ohio. "Those who
think this is a flash in the :pan
are mistaken."
In the opinion of the leaders,
the new party enters the field
with. a formidable equipment.
These leaders, however, said as
to the men who took a conspic
uous part in the campaign for
Roosevelt's nomination, each
must speak for himself.
The attitude of Gov. Hadley,
of Missouri, was the chief point
of discussion along this line. The
governor left town without
waiting to declare himself.
No definite idea of the plan to
be followed could be obtained,
and it was said that a period of
several weeks may elapse before
the program is decided upon.
Gov. Johnson in the n..eantime
will act as field marshal and in
cooperation with Roosevelt will
decide upon the membership of
the committee of seven and
guide the preliminary I work of
organization.
Today's meeting was held in
th headquarters of the nation
al Roosevelt committee- It was
impossible to ascertain ho w big
a proportion of the Roosevelt
strength at the convention was
represented, although it is said
that nearly every state which
sent Roosevelt delegates to Chi
cago had its men there.
"Clean Up the Bowels and
Keep Them Clean"
There are many remedies to be
had for constipation, but the diffi
culty is to procure one that acts
without violence. A remedy that
does not pertorm
by force what
should be accom
plished by persua
sion is Dr. Miles'
L .axative Tablets.
'After using thenm,
Mr. N. A. Waddell,
- -- 31 I Washington
St., Waco, Tex.,
says:
'Almost all my
life I have been
troubled with constipation. and have
tried many remedies. al of which
seemed to cause pain without giving
Smuch relief. I finally tried Dr. Miles'
Laxative Tablets and found them ex
cellent. Their action Is pleasant and
mild, and their chocolate taste makes
-them easy to take. I am more than
bg to recommend them."~
"Clean up the bowels and keep
them clean," is the advice of all
Ephysicians, because they realize the
danger resulting from habitual con
stipation- Do not delay too long,
ut begin proper curative measures.
rDr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are a
ew remedy for this old complaint,
nd a great improvement .over the
athartics you have been using in
the past. They taste like- candy
nd work like a charm. A trial
w ill convince yott.
-Dr. Miles' Laxative Tablets are
old by all druggists, at 25 cents
a box containing 25 doses. If not
found satisfactory after trial, re
trxi the box to 'your druggist and
h e. will return your money.

Time for- S'4e=
Dressing
This is the time to side-dress your cotton. Gin' rs will
tell you thi.t thirteen hundred pounds of set.d cotton
been side-dressed will turn off as heavy a bale of cotton as
fifteen hundred pounds of seed cotton that has not been side
dressed. Two hundred pounds of 4-[o-2 applied to an acre
of cotton as a side-dresser will increase the yield at least three
hundred pounds of seed cotton to the acre. This three hun
dred pounds of seed cotton, the way you farmers have im
proved your cotton, will turu off apout one hundred and
twenty-five pounds of lint at twelve cents a pound will bring
you $1 5.00-at ten cents a pound, it will bring you $r 2-50
and the two hundred pounds of 4-10o-2 will cost you $4.20,
and two hundred pounds of 4-7-2 will cost $3-4o. The dif
ference in these figures represents the extra profits which you
will make on an acre of cotton by side dressing. Besides the
satisfaction of having a fine cotton crop, it helps a man's feel
ings, and helps his standing in the community, and helps his
credit to have a fine cotton crop. The time has passed in this
country when a man can maintain his respectability and raise
"Bumble bee cotton."
The fertilizer you use in side-dressing pays you better
than any fertilizer you use. It prevents the cotton's shedding..
The reason cotton sheds is because it has not sufficient plant
food. There is only a smail fraction of an ounce of plant food
gets to each cotton plant when you fertilize in the Spring, and
of this the rains wash away some, the grass gets some, and
there is a verry little left tor the cotton plant.
Now, when your cotton plant begins to fruit, there is an
added strain on the plant, and just at the time the strain is
greatest on cotton plant the supply of the plant has diminished
and is growing less. The result is the cotton sheds its fruit
People who do rnot side-dress their cotton lose from one
fourth to one-third of their crop every year by shedding.
The farmers of Anderson county side-dressed more last
year than they ever did. You do not put enough corn and
fodder in your stalls for your mules on Monday morning to
last until Saturday night, and you would not think of putting
enough corn and fodder in your stall for your mules in April
to last until November, but yet that is what you are doing
with cotton. You are trying to give it enough plant food in
April to last until November. This plan will work in making
cotton, a.fter a fashion, but you will not get the crops and you
wvill not get the clear money that you will get if you side-dress.
If you put your stock under a heavy strain, you increase their
feed. Now, when your cotton is under an increased strain by
reason of its fruiting it will pay you handsomely to give it ad
ditional plazlt food.
Do not confuse th's side-dresser of ours with cther side
dressing f..rtilizer where the ammonia is derived solely from
nitrate of soda. This side-dresser of ours has soda to act
quickly and blood, tan kage, cotton seed meal and fish to carry $
on the work which the~ soda co mmences, and is infinitely better
for the crop.
Apply as early as you possibly can.
Full supplies of these go.->ds kept at the Farmers Oil
Mill and Excelsior Oil Mill.
