thaL .at Fort Madison it is believed
that tho appointment of a new warden

On the other hand there is not the
least suspicion that the board of con-

machine would be built up or that it
would have any effect on politics. The

of the strongest indorsements of Pro

of Vinton, and another very fine in
dorsement was that of Judge Carr,

But the fact that those who would
destroy the confidence of the republi

the baldest misrepresentations and
statements exactly contrary to the
truth, and are willing to cast discredit
upon the state board of control in its
management of the state institutions,

fact it will not be claimed by anyone
well informed that the board of con

A staunch Taft advocate living in

here today his conviction that the

W. O. Payne, of Nevada, who attend

stated privately that in his opinion and
after a careful canvass among those
attending there were only five present
at the standpat conference who are
really and honestly for Taft. He stated
his belief that with the great majority
of those who voted for the Taft reso

February 12 was the wedding anni
versary of Mr. and Mrs.. E. H. Addi
son, and also Mrs. Addison's birthday,
so their oldest daughter decided that a
sui prise on them would be the proper
thing. They, with his aunt, who is
visiting1 here from Pennsylvania, were
invited to spend the afternoon with
Mrs. C. M. Soper. She was very late
with her dinner, and before it was
ready a phone from the Addison house
called them home, as someone had
come. When they reached there they
found the house full and tables set fot
a I»:o0 dinner, and were greeted with
the S. IT. I. yell, for Miss Hazel had
returned home from Iowa City with
two friends. The guests presented the
surprised ones with a beautiful Piquard
vase, and Miss Hazel, who had lire
pared the place cards, had enlarged a
water color from a post card sent to
Mr. Addison by Dr. and Mrs. Conner
when they were in Germany. A very
enjoyable evening was spent.
