-? I
Candidates, Platform and the
Election Result Depend Partly
on Present Figrht.
Washington, August 14.?Presiden?
tial polities are being played In the
House of Representatives these duys.
Developments growing out of the at?
tack of Leader Underwood on Bryan
and the attack of Leader Underwood
on Representative Olll-j James, of
Kentucky, may shape the nomination
of the Democratic candidate for Pres?
ident. Not only this, but they may
shape the result of the next election.
Until now statesmen have been talk?
ing about the Democratic spilt In tho
House with bated breath and In whls
. pers. Now they are beginning to talk
I It out loud and say what tiisy th.nk
without lowering their voices It is no
longer any secret that, there is a seri
; ovis division aiming the House Demo
; i rats. The Inevitable lines of cleav
! age are beginning to appear.
Harmony Disappears.
Leader Underwood and {Speaker
Champ Clark are no longer In har
| tnony and accord. The friends of Wll.
. 11am Jennings Bryan are likewise
! angry at the Alabama member, and
? there are compl'catsons of grave
i moaning to the Democratic party.
Out of this nituatlon may come a
! tremendous movement of the House
j progressive Democrats for Champ
I Clark for President. It is not at all
j unlikely that, the present House differ
e ices will work out to the advantage/
) of Clark and to the disadvantage as
'? presidential candidates of Woodrow
? Wilson and Judson Harmon.
When the present session of Con?
gress opened, everybody marveled at
i the remarkable harmony displayed In
; the Democratic House. The Republl
i cans looked on and lamented. They
j said that If It kept up thej could not
I hope to win In 1512. It was generally
^supposed that Deader Underwood and
' Speaker Clark were going to operate
I In complete accord, and that the Un
; derwood Influence was srolnp- to be ex
I r-rted to boost Champ into the White
j House.
Where They Port Company.
Now. It has become pretty pliin that
I nderwood, who is essentially a con
i servatlve, and Clark, who is essential?
ly a radical, are not going to stand
hitched up together.
The Underwood Influence is expect
ed to go In the Harmon direction
rather than In the direction either ol
I Clark or Wilson. With the able chair
j man of the Ways ami Means Commit
j lee will go a large share of tho con
; servatlve Democrats of the House.
Under the circumstances, with Ollis
i James bent on fighting Underwood
j and hacked by a ?trong force of the
radicals or pmercssIve.? on the Demo-,
, cratlc side, and with the Bryan sup
j porter"1 turned against Underwood,
i there Ifl a natural disposition amotm
. the progressives to help alone the
' presidential prospects of Fpoaker
I Clark.
Clark's Strencth firovvlnK.
This is the more s*. because e-iark'9
' strength in the country 1? sail on the
i haMs of reliable reports to be growing
j It has been calculated to hurt Clark
In the eyes of a Jot of the progressive
Democrats that in the early part of
the extra session he was known chief
; ly as a figurehead through which Un?
derwood did ar- he wanted to do.
But now he Is assuming r. different
attitude, as was seen in the recent
i Democratic caucus. In which Clark
wanted to go ahead with consideration

Ice Cream Without Germs
The Only Way to Get It
When you make ice cream from milkman's cream there are millions
of germs in a spoonful. There are none when you use Van Camp's.
Van Camp s Milk as it comes
to you ? as thick as thick
cream ?is utterly free from
Dilute it with water which
has be?n boiled, add sugar and flavor, and freeze.
Thcp you have on ice cream of exceeding rich?
ness Absolutely pure.
So in every sort of a milk dish?so in coffee
and cereals?so in milk to drink. Van Camp's
Milk means the maximum richness aad utter
sterility. Milkman's milk means neither, as
you know.
Nothing Artificial
Van Camp's is simply rich milk as it comes
from the cow, with two-thirds the water evapo?
rated. Nothing is added, as to condensed milk.
No sugar, no starch, no preservative. Nothing
is subtracted save water.
Our evaporating plants are built after Swiss
models. There are seven, in seven states, each
built close to our dairies. They are conducted
with hospital cleanliness.
The fresh milk is
put into a vecuum.
Because of the vac?
uum, a moderate heat
evaporates the water
without scalding the
milk. Thus the milk

is reduced to the thickness of thick cream. Then
it is pasteurized after the can is sealed.
Its Amazing Richness
Milk dishes, hot or cold, when made with Van
Camp's, have amazing richness and flavor. Some
people think we add something to give it. But
we don't.
Van Camp's Milk as it comes to you is 28 per
cent solids, 8 per cent butter fat. It is rich be?
cause it is whole, rich milk.
' Milkman's milk separates. The butter fat
rises and the solids fall. When it gets to the
cooking it is rarely more than a hslf-mllk. Van
Camp's is the whole milk?all of the butter fat,
all of the solids. That is the only reason why
milk dishes made of it are so surprisingly good.
Saves One-Half
" Half the cost of milkman's milk is the cost of
the daily delivery. We save all that. And, by
removing two-thirds of the water, we save in
shipping bulk. As a result, Van Camp's Milk
costs less than milkman's milk. The cost will
figure about six cents per quart when reduced
to the usual milk's richness.
Then there is no waste?no milk left over.
When you open a can it keeps rill.you use'it iip.
By saving in cost and saving the waste, the
use of Van Camp's cuts milk bills about in two.
Think of that. Whole milk instead of a f aif
milk. Pure milk instead of germ-laden. And a
saving of half besides.
But that isn't all. Think what it means to
have milk and cream always on hand?a month's
supply, if you wish it. No waiting for the milk?
man, no shortage, no waste.
Be Sure of Van Camp's
Van Camp's Milk comes from pure-bred Hol?
stein cows, kept in model dairies, constantly
inspected. It is evaporated in modern aseptic
It is reduced to the minimum?to the thickness
of thick cream. It is 28 per cent solids, 8 per
cent butter fat.
It Is the final result of seven years of perfect?
ing, in which we employed the ablest Swiss and
Dutch experts. It has cost us $100,000 to bring
Van Camp's Milk up to its present standard. It
is so generally preferred that we now milk 30,000
cows per day to keep up with demands. V
Yet this pr?mier milk costs no more tiscto- com?

Splendid Contests in Both Leagues Awakens In?
terest?Club Admirers Expect Reversed
Verdict if Team Wins Flag.
Philadelphia, August 14.?One pre?
diction can be safely ventured at this
time, and that Is the world's aeries of
1911 will surpass in interest any ever
played previously, no matter which
teams win the pennant in the Ameri?
can and National Leagues. The ter?
rific fights In both baseball organiza?
tions for the championship nave key?
ed the "fans" up to a sixty-horsepow?
er pitch of excitement In at least seven
major league cities, and the series of
games for the world's title Is bound to
reap the benefits.
At present it looks like a 50 to 1
bet that Connie Mark's Athletics will
represent the American League In tho
battle next October. Who will repre?
sent the National League is a mooted
question, and the man who would pick
the winner of the penant In the senior
baseball organization would be gamb
ling with fate. But granting that the
Mackmen are pretty sure winners, let's
look the Hold over.
Chicago last year met the Athletics
In the world's scries a 3 to 2 favorite
In many circles. The men who fought
: 'ir Connie Mack made the Cubs look
bud, winning four of rive games play?
ed. It was a surprise and a shock to
C'hloagouns. But they have not forgot -i
ten. Nor have they been convinced
that the machine of Frank Chance's
building was working smoothly. In
Chicago they expert that another series
would result (differently. Under the
circumstances, If the Athletics and
Chicago meet, the Interest and excite?
ment will be much greater than lnsl
Suppose Plttshurg wins the National
League flag. A series with the Ath?
letics would he a fight not only for the
world's championship, hut for the
? Pennsylvania State title. A man in
the Smoky City said last week that
I already the "fans" were planning for
special trains to come to Philadelphia
and witness the games at Shlbe Park.
Owing to the easy all-night ride be?
tween the two cities, attendance fig?
ures should be smashed to smithereens
If It In between the two Pennsylvania
And If New York should be the op?
ponent of the Athletics. Gracious!
Phlladelphlans have not forgotten the
drubbing "Muggey" McGraw's Glantsl
handed the Mackmen In 1905 They
want revenge. In fact, many "fans?
are hoping New York will be tho Na?
tional League contender, so that Con?
nie Mack nnd his crew can gel back
at the Giants. The sb'^rt ride between
the two cities would also be a factor
In making the series a wonderful suc?
[ Then take the Phillies ? Dooln's
Hopes are still In the National League
race?It Is unnecessary to say any
more. For the sentiment Is so divid?
ed in this city that a series of gnmen
for the world's title and the city cham?
pionship at the same tlmo would sus-j
pend business in professional life, fac-j
