William Jennings Bryan was a sur
prise speaker at the centenary dinner
of the Savings Hanks Associations at
the Hotel Itlltmoro Inst night.
It was surmised by some that Mr.
Ilrynn was also slightly surprised, for
coming late Into the banquet hall he
ran Into several redhot preparedness
speeches being delivered by such men
as Or. Charles Alexander Jtlchmond,
president of t'nlon College, and Joseph
A. I.awson, a lawyer of Albany. Mr.
Kiwson made the ex-Secretary of State
color a deep red under his tan by one
little portion of his speech, hut when It
came time for hltn to talk the ex-.Sccre-tary
only devoted about two minutes to
his views nnd thereafter talked of
"Thrift," the password of the evening.
It was 11 o'clock when air. lirynn
came quietly Into the hall and took a
chair unrecognized. He was not ex
pected by the diners nnd only President
James II. Manning knew he was to come.

Then came .Mr l.awson lust after the

that slnco they provided bolts and locks
to guard tlm savings of the poor, the
country must prepare to defend them
from the Invader. Then he said that If a

phe U. S. Government
now is helping to develop
Yellowstone and other National
Parks. Secretary Lane of the Department
of the Interior is taking a lively interest in !
getting more citizens to see Yellowstone
Park and our other national beauty spots,
because our national scenic resources arel
properly conserved only when they are ,
used by a maximum number of Americans.
An important part of the
new government program is
the publication of beautiful,
authentic descriptions of our
great playgrounds in booklets
which soon will be ready for
free distribution. Through
the courtesy of the Interior
Department the Union Pa
cific System will co-operate
in the movement to increase
travel to Yellowstone Park by
reprinting the government
book on this wonderland.
To all who send in their
namesthis book will be mailed
as soon as it is off the press,
togetheri'vvith full information '
on how to reach the Yellow-,
stone, rates, etc.
About two-thirds of all
who visit the Park enter,
through the western gateway
(Yellowstone tstation; , t the
Union Pacific entrance, be
cause Colorado and Salt Lake
City may be seen on the way
without added expense, and
also because this makes a con
venient side trip on the way
to California or the North
Pacific Coast.

Red Tubes Were Made
Before Red Tires
Our "Peerless" and "Standard" Red Inner Tubes are known to
every experienced motorist. It was the great success of these tubes
that led to the introduction of our now famous Empire Red Tires.
When you buy a tube, specify the Empire "Peerless" or
"Standard" Red Tube. The "Peerless" is extra heavy Wr heavier
than the ordinary tube and will stretch IVz times its length without
a strain or break and jump back in perfect shape.

"Peerless" and "Standard"
Empire Red Tubes are thick and tough and stretchy. They
never get brittle or spongy. The heat of friction never bothers
them. They can be vulcanized and patched over and over again.
The Empire "Standard" is of the same quality of rubber, but
only about the weight of the average tube of unknown or uncertain
quality.
See the Empire man today and get equipped with Empire Red
Tubes and Tires the unbeatable combination.
