THE HUNTERS’ DINNER
ROOSEVELT AS AN ENTERTAINER
President Gives Farewell Banquet to
His Companions On
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
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

neighborhood of where I was hunting.

know but 1 ant even more glad to sec

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.

that he must be content with the aid

Omaha, May C. —Pat Crowe, the al

Crowe stated that he had served in

He returned to this country after the

He was asked ,if he had a hand in
the famous Cudahy kidnapping, but de

The interview lasted for nearly an

The crime with which Crowe is

prietor of a large packing establish
ment in this city. The kidnapping oc

his father’s home by his captors, who
got no money.
Following the kidnapping
Cudahy, Sr., offered a rcAvard of s!?>,-

offer was followed by another of a sim

county commissioners. Other rewards
were also offered, bringing the aggre

as a fighter and an actor.
"I may possibly take a summer trip
to Europe with my wife, after which I
am going into the mining business
with my brother Jack, and 1 shall here
after devote my time to it. The prin

objects. That has been the controlling
influence in my reaching this determ

Better Prices for Potatoes.
Denver, May 4. —A Republican spe
cial from Greeley last night says: Po
tatoes commanded the highest price
since January to-day. They were
quoted at 25 cents for pearls and 30
cents for rurals. The advance was due
to a greater demand in Kansas, Okla
homa, California and Washington.
Thirty carloads are leaving the Gree
ley district daily.
It i*s estimated that 2.000 carloads of
first-class potatoes are still In the Gree
ley district, and that there will be no
trouble in placing these on the market
within a few weeks. The inferior po
tatoes have been used In feeding stock

NO MORE HEADACHE

The immediate causes of headaches
vary, but most of them come from jx>oi
or poisoned blood. In auumiia the blood
is scanty or thiu ; the nerves are imper
fectly nourished and pain is tho way in
which they express their weakness. In
colds the blood absorbs poison from the
mneous surfuecs, and the poison irritutes
tho nerves and produces pain. In rheu
matism, malaria and tho grip, the poison
in the blood produces like discomfort. Iu
indigestion the gases from tho impure
matter kept iu tho system uffect the
blood in the same way.
Tho ordinary headache-cures at best
f;ive only temporary relief. They deuden
be pain but do not drive the poison out
of the blood. Dr. Williams’ Pink Pills
on the contrary thoroughly renew the
and tho pain disappears perma
nently. Women in particular have found
these pills an uufniling relief iu heud
aches caused by amemia.
Miss Stella Blockor recently said: "Dr.

That the population Now York

made Its report to the full board.
The committee found that in 1925

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-,.
"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
“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." Name given by Postum
