Frock Suits and High Hats Are
to Be Worn at the Presi
dential Affair.
What manner of drefis to be affected
by the members of the committee which
is to receive President Taft and look
after the -program of entertainment has
been discussed in some quarters and
there seems to be a misunderstanding
in regard to the matter. A report has
gone forth that the members of the
committee will have to don dress suits
but this is erroneous of course, as they
would not be “de rigeur’’ at noon
When seen today and asked in regard
to the matter, C. W. Ogden,
chairman of the executive committee,
stated that there would be no formal
dross except Prince Albert coats and
silk hats for those having the matter
of directly looking after the entertain
ment of the president in their hands.
This committee will be nearest to the
president. At the midday luncheon,
which will take place at the St. An
thony hotel next Monday, Prince Al
bert coats and high hats will be the
style of dress, says Judge Ogden.

Scout Car Meets With a Warm,
Reception Along the Road, *
Incidents of the Trip.
Waco, OeE 11. —Although the Start
from Austin was not made by the |>ath
finder until nearly 10 o’clock, the little
Chalmers stuck to its task like a thor
oughbred and it rolled into Waco at
4;30 in excellent shape.
The quick trip was made' possible by
the excellent roads all the way aud the
ease with which it cun be logged. A
running description of the road is all
one needs to come from Austin to Waco.
The rain of last Friday put the route
in great shape from Georgetown to
this city.
For the most part, the only minute
logging necessary is in and out ot the
towns. As to the roads, all one has to
do is follow the telephone lines and
the rest is a cinch.
Belton was decided on as the lunch
ing station. Although our lunch was as
cold as the proverbial charity, the land
lady promised to have a nice hot meal
ready for the bunch when they roll in
on the 23rd.
j Stops were made today at George
town, Belton and Temple, where an en
thusiastie reception awaited ns.
One noticeable feature in this neck
of the woods is fhe good feeling shown
I by the farmers.
One am using incident today was the
imeeting of a moving family. Besides
the furniture thq covered wagon was
occupied by a man, his wife and about
seven children. ' When they saw us
the old man held up his hand for us to
stop, which we did. lie then unloaded
all the kids and he and his wife each
stood at one of'the mule’s heads. Wo
were then given the high sign.
Slowly we approached, while the kids
took places of safety outside the fence.
Morrison ran as slowly and quietly
as he could, fearing the skittish Mauds
would break away aud scatter furniture
for miles along the road.
We were dumfounded as we neared
the crucial test to see that the suppos
edly scarry animals didn’t even prick
up their ears. Morrison, disgusted,
threw the engine over on the high gear,
making as much noise as possible, and
yet the mules oven refused to say
“Howdy” as wo shot past.
At a little town named Bruceville wo
stopped and asked a man in a big ।
black hat how to get out of town.
He said he wanted to go to Loreno, the |
next place, and that, although he had j
never ridden in an auto, he would show
us the way.
We took him into the rumble seat |
and started out. After getting to the;
top of a rather rough hill, during which I
our humble friend must have been shook
up sonic, we spied a nice stretch of
smooth road ahead.
Morrison grinned a grin, slid down
into his seat, pulled over the lever,
shoved down his throttle and the little!
roadster fairly got up and flew.
Our friend was game, all right. Ue |
never peeped, just hung on for dear life, (
while the tears rolled down his rather
chalky face.
When we slowed up in I.oreno he
jumped out, stretched his cramped arms j
and legs, felt of himself t'o see if all ;
of him arrived, wiped the water ovt
