One of the wom en In charge of the children said that the boys had arranged the outing "of their own accord, and the remarkable thing is this: They are not good boys by any means and one of them Is pro bably the naughtiest boy In the neigh borhood.

Is Taggart Boosting Boom of The President of Princeton (Palladium Special , Indianapolis, Ind Sept 10. The re port that Thomas Taggart Is uniting with eastern Democratic leadera In preparations to launch the presidential boom of Wood row Wilson. president of Princeton, with a hurrah. Is not to be taken without a grain of salt say those whom long in the knowledge of Taggart's career, his likes and 'dislikes. The playing of Woodrow Wilson against Mayor Gaynor In the east might be an artful blind, quite cretl table to the wariness of Taggart But apparently the Indiana boss's real preference for the presidency Is none other than "Uncle Judson" Harmon, of Ohio. Harmon, being a' western man, ia not an altogether unnatural choice of the power behind the Hoosier Democratic throne; especially since his administration has loomed up strongly with the exception of his strike troubles. Notwithstanding this it Is a prophesy that Taggart will be taking his head In his hands If he de nies Governor Thomas R. Marshall, a Justly deserved support for the presi dential candidacy. Despotism may not be the part of wisdom with the In fluence of Steve Fleming at Its present status. The situation Is one which will require the full measure of the pol itical cunning and genius for which Taggart Is well known. Old Enemies Meet Since ex-Vice President Charles W. Fairbanks, at the solicitation of State Republican Chairman Lee consented to act with the new Reprbllcan com mittee and to speak In the campaign. he and Senator Albert J. Beverldge have been thrown together by chance on several publio occasions in which the proximity of the one-time Republi can enemies has been, to say the least. consclcuous. However, this Is not generally commented upon as Incon sistent or strange since Fairbanks ostensibly climbed upon the progres sive Republican band wagon. At the banquet given by the Hamilton club of Chicago In honor of Colonel Roosevelt Senator Beverldge and Mr. Fairbanks occupied seats directly at the right of the chief guest When the Mexican war veterans met In their last reun ion In Indianapolis the two found themselves ensconsed In the same pew of the automobile which bore the speakers to the state house. They conversed little. Later, It was with no eulogy or even with a single compli ment that. Mr. Fairbanks Introduced the senior senator, although such an action might have appeared to be poli tically premeditated. Is She a Press Agent? Whether or not John B. Peterson, Democratic candidate for congress In the Tenth district Is paying a. press heartburn, griping in bowels, tender ness in the pit of stomach, bad taste In mouth, constipation, pain in limbs, sleeplessness, belching of gas,' bil iousness, sick headache, nervousness, dlaslness or many other similar symp toms. It your appetite is fickle, and noth ing tempts you, or you belch gas or if you feel bloated after eating, or your food Uesrlike a lump of lead on your stomach, you can make up your mind that at the bottom of all this there is but one Scause fermentation of undi gested food. Prove to yourself In five minutes that your stomach is as good as any; that there Is nothing really wrong. Stop this fermentation and begin eat ing what you want without fear of dis comfort or misery. Almost Instant relief is waiting for you. It is merely a matter, of how DYSPEPSIA you take a little Diapepsin. agent the story of his daughter, Miss Belle Peterson, and the part she la taking In his campaign, is not half bad ly conceived. When the Lake county convention was held at Gary, Wednesday, one del egate from Crown Point was left be hind. His train pulled out and he gave up all hope of participating In the con vention. Miss Belle Peterson heard of his dllemna. She thought of her father's 50-borse power Jack rabbit roadster. She had never driven it before, al though she was familiar with all sorts of smaller cars. Furthermore, the del egate was not present to crank up the monster. (Right here, according to the rule for all short stories as laid down by the correspondence schools of writing, it would be proper to intro duce something about Miss Peterson's Urowess at basket-ball or throwing the hamer In college days, but whoever told It first lacked this training and overlooked It) Suffice to say she cranked up, hunted up the delagte and whisked him across country to the steel city at breakneck speed. (Any thing always goes at breakneck speed). As Miss Peterson brought the car to a standstill at convention hall with abruptness which sent the dele gates hurtling through the air. (When one hurtles it is usually through the air) ? He reached his seat in the con vention Just as the gavel fell, calling it to order. What romantic possibilities undeve loped! If there is such a press agent it may not be impertlnetn to suggest a week's vacation. At Local Theaters Keith Stock Company. A week of solid enjoyment is ex pected when the Keith Stock company opens a week's engagement next Mon day at the Gennett theatetr. The advance notices describe this organisation as the strongest reper toire company on the road; and if it can be Judged by the favorable criti cisms which hare 'been written about it and the large business it has done in the neighboring cities, it may easily be classed among the solid successes f the season. The first performance will be Monday night when "It's Nev er Too Late To Mend" will be offered. Great things are expected of this play as it has met with immense success elsewhere, and it is said to be among the most pretentious productions ever offered at popular prices.

Splendid Bill at the Murray. Fine audiences have been present at the Murray , this week to witness the performances of ' the vaudeville bill which marks the opening of an other season In this popular house. Always beautiful the house has an inviting, cosy appearance which is greatly appreciataed by all the pa trons and this represents the best people in the city 'and vicinity. The overture, an Indian novelette, "My Ramapoo.' has a number of ap propriate and pleasing effects. The war whoops, the shooting, musical novelties Introduced by the drummer are very realistic Then Dark Knights were the most heartily welcomed and their second visit will evidently be most enjoyable both to them and the audiences. Fitch Cooper with his musical saw. his excellent Imitations, prove so entertaining that the au diences do not desire his act to close.

One-sixteenth negro blood in an individual classifies him as a negro in the Dis trict of Columbia, according to a de cision by Justice Daniel T. Wright of the district supreme court, in the case of Isabelle I. Wall, an eight-year-old child, who recently was barred from a white public school . because the principal had information that she was of negro parentage. The father of the girl attempted to force the board of education to rein state the child, but failed, . Justice Wright deciding she was a negro. The case was appealed to the district court of appeals. If the appellate court af firms Justice Wright's decision an ef fort will be made immediately to have the United States supreme court pass on the question. BECOMES A MORMAII San Francisco, Sept 10.

He has cut them out Declar ing that he made a mistake in seek ing happiness in a kaleidoscopic change of soul mates, he has gone to Europe to ask his first wife to take him back. Alexander Harvey, associate editor of Current Literature and close friend of the illustrous inaugurator of the affinity fashion, announced today Earle's recantation. 7 Earle sailed under an assumed name and will go direct to Paris to meet Emily Fischbacher, whom he sent away so that he and Miss Julia Kutt ner. of this city, might live together at his luxurious home in Monroe, N. Mr. Harvey said that Earle would use the compelling argument with his wife that he had found affinitylsm had nothing on everyday married life, and that he had decided to cut out soul mates in the future. "Earle was influenced by the litera ry radicals," said Mr. Harvey. "He read George Bernard Shaw and H. G. Wells, as well as other brilliantly ec centric authors, and these moved with in him that artistic temperment which had previously been fed on Shelley. "He decided to banish decency. Led further by the evil influence of neurotics,- he put his decision into e ffect and banished ' Emily Fischbacher. It was only natural that he should beat and kick his affinity under such cir cumstances, and it was pust as natural that he should get another and an other.
