Denver, May B.—Glenwood Springs dispatches last night give an account of the President's doings yesterday. President Roosevelt entertained his companions on his three-weeks' hunt in the Rocky mountains at dinner to night. After the dinner he bade them an affectionate farewell, and promised that all would live forever in his fond est memory. At the dinner were P. B. Stewart of Colorado Springs, Dr. Alex ander Lambert, Guides Jake IJorah, John Goff, Brick Wells, Jack Fry, and G. M. Sprague, Courier Elmer Chap man nnd Secretary Lieb. The News correspondent says: Sec retary Ixieb was the only outsider pres ent and from 7:30 o'clock until nearly midnight, reminiscences were told and retold. Stories of previous hunts were dilated on and finally the party settled down to the telling real good animal stories, things they knew from their own personal experience, such things as would gladden the heart of a Set on Thompson or a Roberts, and when the party finally broke up, thd President came out rubbing his hands and declar ing that it was the jolliest time that he had had since the hunt began. The guests came in every kind of clothing. Guitles Goff and Borah wore blue jumpers with big slouch hats. “Chaps” covered their legs and jang ling spurs rattled and banged along the velvet carpets of the hotel corri dors ns they diffidently walked back and forth. Cook Jack Fry wore his blue Jeans outfit, with the trousers carefully tucked into a pair of high cowboy boots. As cook he has no need of a big hut and he wore a jaunty golf cap. Hunter H. W. Wells was the real dandy of the party. He had made a great nnd mighty effort to appear in a costume befitting the honor of his host and the result was varied and startling. A pair of corduroy trousers with pat ent leather shoes and high canvas leg gings. a flannel shirt with a red silk handkerchief tied around the neck, these last evidently in honor of the President who wore similar clothing in camp, a mighty revolver strapped around his waist and a blue jumper for u coat. Anderson, Sprague and Al len all wore their every-day clothing. A Republican special Follow ing liis usual custom, thy President spent a quiet Sunday. Three weeks ago the railroads planned to run excur sions Into Glenwood Springs to-day, but the plan was discouraged by Sec retary Loeb, who announced that no program would be permitted which called for nn address by the President. In spite of this fact large numbers of people came in by every train and rather than disappoint them, Mr. Roosevelt stepped out on the gecond floor balcony of the hotel after lun cheon and spoke briefly, lie said: "1 did not anticipate having the pleasure of meeting you to-day, and as it is Sunday 1 ant not going to try to make a speech to you. I shall merely say how greatly 1 am enjoying my visit to this beautiful state. I wish that in the last week tip in the mountains there had been a little more weather like this. If there had been, I think w would have gone about two bears better. But still, ns we got ten, I do not think we have got any right to complain. “I ant sure I need not tell you how much I have enjoyed my holiday here and how deeply I have appreciated the kindness with which I have been treated by all the people of your state, the people of your cities, nnd the ranch men right in the immediate neighborhood of where I was hunting. It is n great pleasure to see the men of Colorado, and an even greater pleas ure to see the women, and I do not know but 1 ant even more glad to sec the small folk. "I shall not try to make you a speech. I shall simply say how glad 1 am to see you and be your guest.” The President's party was up early to-day. After breakfast a limited amount of important mail was gotten out of the way and then the party went to the Presbyterian churclW An invi tation to the President and his party was extended yesterday by the Rev. j. Wilson Currens and was accepted. Just as the party was about to leave the hotel, photographers requested a sitting that would include every mem ber of the party. Chairs were grouped on the lawn in front of the veranda. As soon as the pictures were taken the. President had a brisk walk and the party arrived at the little church ten minutes later, all out of breath except Mr. Roosevelt. He seemed to enjoy the walk. Along the street he was cheered and he responded by lifting his hat frequently, patting children on the head, nnd bowing to their parents. In front of the church the Sunday school children stood in open forma tion and as the party passed through the little folks sang. The church was crowded and hundreds of people stood outside ns near the open windows as possible. The Rev. Currens preached on the subject of the responsibility of the Christian. Church. He made no ref erence to the distinguished visitor ex cept in his prayer, when he asked that the President be given the strength to carry on the duties of his office. The congregation remained standing until after the presidential party de parted. In Honor of Prohibition. Topeka. Kan..

RUSSIANS CONFIDENT EXPECT TO OUT-MANEUVER TOGO Believe Combined Fleets of Rojestven 6ky and Nebogatoff Can Safely Reach Port Arthur. St. Petersburg, May 7.—Admiral Nebogatoff’s junction with Vice Ad miral Rojestvensky is now considered by the admiralty as practically as sured, and hope for a successful issue in the approaching struggle for mas tery of the sea is greatly encouraged. Nebogatoff Is regarded as the Blucher of the situation and. indeed, he is said to resemble him greatly in temperament. He may lack his strat egy nnd finesse, but like the Prussian, he has bulldog courage and is a born fighter, who goes straight for the enemy. If Vice Admiral Kamimura. like Grouchy at Waterloo, fails to prevent a juncture of the Russian fleets, as the admiralty here believes he has, the impression is strong that Vice Admiral Togo will not dare risk an open battle against the united divisions of Rojest vensky and Nebogatoff. but will pro tect himself by torpedo attacks and poslbly a long range action, being pre pared to draw off in the event that he lse unable to make an impression. Naval officers are prepared to see Rojestvensky lost half his convoy, but in fact of the united divisions it is be lieved that Togo will accomplish little or nothing in the way of opposition to the advance to Vladivostok, and that he must be content with the aid of the army and make Vladivostok another Port Arthur. If the fleet reaches Vladivostok in tact. however, naval officers here claim that victory is won. Although there Is a little more than 100.000 tons of coal at Vladivostok, with the reinforcement of the fleet ty the Gromobol, Rossia and Bogatyr. and the torpedo boats and submarines no .v in the harbor there they claim that Rojestvensky could drive Togo off the eea and leave Field Marshal O.vama'i army stranded in Manchuria. Simultaneously with the increasing tension over the approach of a sea battle, comes news that Field Marshal Oyama is pressing the Russian right along the Liao river north of Fakowan. as if he is beginning a general enga**v ment.

COFFEE HEART Very Plain in Some People. A great many people go on suffer ing from annoying ailments for a long time before they can get their own consent to give up the indulgence from which their trouble arises. A gentleman in Brooklyn describes his experience as follows: "I became satisfied some months ago that 1 owed the palpitation of the heart, from which 1 suffered almost daily, to the use of coffee (I had been a coffee drinker for 39 years), but 1 found it very hard to give up the bev-,. erage. "I realized that I must give up the harmful indulgence in coffee but 1 felt the necessity for a hot table drjnk. and as tea is not to my liking. I was at a loss for awhile what to do. "One day I ran across a very sen sible and straightforward presenta tion of the claims of Postum Food Coffee, and was so impressed thereby that I concluded to give it a trial. My experience with it was unsatisfactory till I learned how it ought to be pre pared—by thorough boiling for not jess than 15 or 20 minutes. After I learned that lesson there was no trouble. Postum Food Coffee proved \o be a most palatable and satisfac-i tory hot beverage, and I have used # it •ver since. “The effect on my health has been most salutary. It has completely cured the heart palpitation fi*> m which I used to suffer so much, "particularly after breakfast, and 1 nAver have a re turn of it except whcti I dine or lunch away from home and am compelled to drink the old kind of coffee because Postum Is not served. 1 find that Pos tum Food Coffee cheers and Invigor ates while it produces no harmful atlmulation."
