BY EDWARD B. CLARK.
Washington, Mar. 4. —Standing on
the east portico of tho canitol, just
alter noon, William Howard Taft took
the oath of office as president of the
United States, an Immense throng of
his fellow citizens witnessing the im
pressive ceremony. James School
craft Sherman already had been sworn
in as vice-president, in the senate
chamber, and the people acclaimed
the new chief executives of the na
tion.
Notwithstanding the fact that Mr.
Taft, has been in civil pursuits all his
llfQ, the military display which accom
panied his induction into office was
greater than that which marked the
inauguration of the militant rough
rider president, Theodore Roosevelt,
four years ago. Washington was
tilled with civilians and soldiers and
sailors. From the earliest daylight
hour the streets were crowded with
people. Pennsylvania avenue, the cen
ter of all things in Washington, was
packed with the crowds, every man
and woman in which sought, by an
early arrival, to obtain a place of van
tage from which the great procession,
which for hours passed through the
broad thoroughfare, could be seen.
Meet at Executive Mansion.
Flarly m the day the president-elect
met the outgoing president In the
White House. About an hour before
noon, the congressional committee of
arrangements, consisting of Senators
Knox, Lodge and Bacon, and Repre
sentatives Burke, Young and Gaines,
arrived at the executive mansion and
informed the president and the presi
dent-elect that congress was in readi
ness for the ceremonies of the actual

the carriages immediately following

INSULT DROWNED IN BUBBLES.
Old-Time Enemies Drink and Forget
the Stormy Past.
Two men who had been introduced in
the last days of the campaign, one of
whom lived in Washington, the other
to New York, harked back to the
civil war. The Washington man had
enlisted in the First lowa infantry
when he was 15. The New York man
had bushwhacked with Quantrell.
“Your regiment,” said the ex-bush
whacker, “was the first Yankee regi
ment I ever saw. You came through
my town and camped until you were
ordered to the front. The sight of
you fellows in your new uniforms,
marching away to fight the south, cre
ated in me my first longing to shoot
as many Yankees as I could.”
The man from Washington, still a
commanding figure, who became col
ouel of the regiment in which he went
out as a private, answered: “I re
member our visit to your town. We
had been warned that it was a rebel
bole. I recollect that the first In
sult to me as a Yankee soldier oc
curred in your town. I was walking
PRESIDENT TAFT
elect were escorted by the congres
sional committee into the senate wing
of the capitol through the historic
doorway of bronze on the east side of
the building. They went directly to
the president’s room where they re
mained until the committee of ar
rangements came to them and an
nounced that the senate was in readi
ness to receive them. Mr. Roosevelt
and Mr. Taft then walked to the sen
ate chamber, taking the seats re
served for them in the first row di
rectly in front of the vice-president’s
desk.
Vice-President Fairbanks and Vice-
President-elect Sherman drove to the
capitol together and went directly to
the room of the vice-president. In
turn they were escorted to the senate
chamber as the two chief figures of
the occasion had been esoorted before
them. Mr. Fairbanks went at once to
his place as presiding officer of the
senate and Mr. Sherman took a seat
at the left of Mr. Roosevelt and Mr.
Taft, just across the center aisle of
the chamber.
Edward Everett Hale, the veteran
chaplain of the senate and one of the
most picturesque figures in the Uni
ted States, offered prayer. Immedi
ately following the prayer, the oath
of office was administered to Mr.
Sherman by the outgoing vice-presi
dent. Mr. Fairbanks. The new vfce
president next delivered his inaugu
ral address, and then at once, as the
first duty of his new office, he admin
istered the oath to the newly elected
senators of the United States.
March to East Portico.
As soon as the senators-elect had
been sworn into office, a procession
was formed to march from the senate
chamber through the rotunda of the
capitol to the platform on the center
portico of the east side of the build
ing. The sergeant-at-arms of the sen
ate and his fellow officials of the
house of representatives led the way.
The platform upon which President
Taft took the oath of office extended
well out from the portico until it
overhung the broad plaza to the east,
where directly to the front were gath-
in a street where there was a crowd.
Au urchin spat on my new uniform,
and I slapped his face. An assem
blage gathered, and a young woman
punched oft my cap with the end of
her parasol. Fortunately for all of
us, several members of my company
came round the corner. The south
ern chivalry disappeared, and the
mudmulls of the north beat retreat to
camp.’’,
“Yes, that's right,” replied the New
Yorker; “I was the chap who spat
on your new uniform.”
They went out of headquarters to
gether and across the square, where
they sat down to luncheon.
“I have often wondered who the
spirited southern belle was who
knocked off my cap,” said the Wash
ington officeholder.
“That was my sister,” said the ex
bushwhaejeer.
“Ah, won’t you please give her my
compliments, if she is living, as I
trust she still may be.”
“She is still living,” said the ex
bushwhacker, “and It may interest
you to know that when the cruel war
was over she married a Yankee briga
dier. I’m in his business as manager.”

ered the cadets from the military and
naval academies, to the rear of whom
were the other military bodies. Be
yond the cadets, extending to the right
and left as far as the open ground
reached, were gathered the thousands
upon thousands of civilians.
Taft Takes Oath of Office.
The white-haired chief justice of the
United States, Melville W. Fuller, ad
ministered the oath of office of Mr.
Taft, who, when he had taken It, bent
and kissed the Bible held in the hand
of his country’s chief jurist. Imme
diately following the taking of the
oath, President Taft delivered his in
augural address.
The president’s speech frequently
was interruoted by applause and at
its close the greatassembly broke into
cheers. The was congratu
lated by those who were close to him,
including the retiring president and
the other chief officials.- President
Taft then entered a carriage which
was at once surrounded by the mem
bers of the Black Horse troop of
Cleveland, 0., which formed the spe
cial guard of honor. The president’s
carriage was driven north and then
down the hill by the senate wing of
the capitol until Pennsylvania avenue
was reached. From that point the
president drove slowly to the White
House along the thoroughfare filled,
save for its center, with crowds of his
cheering fellow citizens.
Make-Up of Parade.
The guard of honor attending Presi
dent Taft was followed immediately by
a mounted police guard and a full mili
tary band. Then time Maj. Gen. J.
Franklin Bell, chief of the general staff
of the United States army, who was
the parade’s grand marshal, and his
staff. The military division had tho
right of way after the president’s es
cort. At its head were the West Point
cadets in their gray uniforms, march
ing with the perfect alignment for
which the military students are famed.
Behind the stripling soldiers came the
stripling sailors, the midshipmen from
the naval academy at Annapolis. Im
mediately behind the future officers of
army and navy came the regulars of
the military service, veterans most of
them, who had peen service in Cuba
and in the Philippines, and, many of
them, upon the plains In the days be
fore the Indians had left the war
path for the ways of peace. In the line
were the 2,600 men who tad formed
the Cuban army of pacification.
Atlantic Fleet Sends Men.
In the waters of Hampton roads for
ten days the fleet which had made its
record breaking journey around the
world had been assembled. The bat

and the torpedo boats were drawn
upon for “Jackies” to give the sea
service an adequate representation in
the inaugural ceremonies. There were
3,000 sailors from the Connecticut, the
Illinois and the other ships of Sperry’s
fleet in the parade. The marines fol
lowed the sailors.
The regulars of the government
service led the way, their conceded
right. Behind them came the men
who, in time of war. form first the re
serve force, and later when brought
into real soldiers’ thape, the backbone
force of the government’s army—the
National Guardsmen of tho states of
the union.
Many Civic Organizations.
In the rear of the military division
came the civic organizations. There
were in line more than 100 clubs and
political associations from all parts of
the country, nearly all of them wear
ing some unique and distinguishing
uniform. The American club of Pitts
burg acted as personal escort to
Thomas P. Morgan, the chief of the
civic organizations’ committee.
Among the organizations which had
a place in the parade were several
from President Taft’s state —Ohio.
Among these were the Citizens’ Taft

me," said the ex-rebel, in tfee wind-up,
“as reparation for the Insult of 40
years ago. Bubbles are better than
bullets.” —The Sunday Magazine.
Misapplying Music.
“I went to a fashionable wedding
the other day,” remarked a man who
has little time for such things, “and
I was decidedly Impressed by the
character of the music that was played
while the assembled guests were wait
ing for the wedding party to arrive.
The principal number played by the
orchestra was an air from one of the
most modern operas. It marks the en
trance of the heroine of the piece,
who Is coming on the scene to take
part In a wedding of complaisance
with the hero, who is generally regard
ed as one of the greatest blackguards
the world of opera knows. Every
character on the stage knows that the
Buddhistic wedding ceremony that Is
to take place is a sham and the mar
riage turns out to be a tragedy of the
shabbiest sort. And yet that music
was played Itr a church that stands
for intelligence if any one congrega
tion in this town does.”

of Cincinnati, Uniform Rank Knights

publican club of Columbus.
Illinois, Indiana. Missouri, Kentucky,
Minnesota and other status of the mid
dle west and of the south were repre
sented by associations of citizens, po
litical clubs, and by prominent state,
county and municipal officials. Many
veterans of the civil war who served
in the ranks of the union or in the
ranks of the confederacy were present
in the parade. There were more for
mer confederates in line than wore
present at any previous Inauguration
of a Republican president.
Luncheon at White House.
As soon as President Taft reached
the White House he entered and was
greeted by the members of a specially
v\ -
'W
Maj. Gen. J. Franklin Bell.
Invited presidential party,including the
governors of several states, prominent
federal officials, personal friends of
the president and the members of the
presidential family to a remote degree
of relationship. A light luncheon was
served in the great state dining-room,
and as soon as it was over the presi
dent walked across the grounds of the
White House to the presidential re
viewing stand built on the south side
of the avenue directly in front of the
main entrance to the White House and
facing Lafayette square. The presi
dent took his place on the reviewing
stand, and with him were the mem
bers of the presidential party. Vice-
President Sherman stood on the imme
diate right of the chief executive.
Across Pennsylvania avenue directly
in front of the president was a huge
stand for spectators occupying the en
tire length of one side of Lafayette
square.
President Reviews Parade.
As soon as the president appeared
on the reviewing stand the leading
band of the procession, which had been
halted to aw nW the appearance of Mr.
Taft, began to play “Hah to the Chief.’’
Gen. Bell gave the order to pass in re
view, and the great procession, having
its head at the White House, moved
forward to pass before the chief magis
trate. As body after body of soldiers,
sailors and civilians passed, they sa
luted and the president saluted in turn.
It took the procession three hours to
pass the reviewing stand. It was a
great sight,' full of interest and color.
Under the direction of the trained mil
itary chieftains who had given their
time to the perfection of details, the
parade passed quickly and in perfect
form. When in front of the review
ing stand some of the civil marching
clubs showed their proficiency In drill
by performing evolutions. The regu
lars and National Guardsmen, how
ever, swept by in perfect military pre
cision. The parade was worthy of the
occasion that called it into being.
Inaugural Ball in Evening.
When the last of the parading bod
ies had passed the president returned
to the White House for a short rest
before preparing to go to the great
inaugural ball, which was given in the
Pension building. The ball was the
brilliant affair that it always is. It
was attended by a tremendous throng.
In the center of the great hall which
occupies the lower floor of the struc
ture a space was roped off. The vis
itors stood outside the open place wait
ing the arrival of President and
Mrs. Taft and Vice-President and
Mrs. Sherman. They came finally and
stayed on the main floor for some
time, and then retired to the presi
dent's box in the gallery above, where
they watched tho proceedings below.
On the great mall on the Potomac
side of the White House in the even
ing there was a brilliant display of
fireworks, a display that was co
incident with the continuance of the
inaugural ball.
The day, with all its attending cera«
monies, was one that was worthy of
the event which made it a time of
celebration.
Deal in Rotten Eggs.
It would not seem that a law against
the sale of rotten eggs would be neces
sary in these days, but Pennsylva
nia seems to think one expedient It
appears that in Philadelphia there is
a large trade In “rots” and “spots"—
spoiled, cracked and dirty eggs—and
a bill has been offered in tho Penn
sylvania legislature to make their sale
and use a crime. “Rots” and “spots”
are bought by wholesalers, who sell
them to bakers at about six cents
a dozen. With this fact known, the
housewife who gets poundcake for
10 and 12 cents a pound may under
stand how the baker can make it so
much more cheaply than she can.
A Traveling Clock.
The new traveling clocks are in
every sense what their name implies.
Instead of the square ones that took
several inches of valuable space in
the traveling bag, these new ones are
a thin model watch, encased tn leather
about four inches broad and long.
They are made to fold flat, just as
the leather picture frames do, and
can be tucked in the pocket of one’s
bag without encroaching on space.
WESTERN CANADA'S SPLENDID
CROP YIELD FOR 1908.
AMERICANS PROFITED LARGELY
AND SEND BACK SATISFAC
TORY REPORTS.
The census branch of the Depart
ment of Agriculture, Ottawa, Canada,
has completed its returns of the show
ing of Western Canada's grain yield
for 1908, and the reports make very
interesting reading. In the three prov
inces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta, which comprise what may be
known as Central Canada, there was a
total wheat yield of about 107,000,000
bushels, worth to the farmer about
185,000,000; in addition to this tho oat
barley and flax crops were worth an
other $35,000,000. Letters have been
received trom many of tho settler*
from the United States. From these
that of R«v. Oscar L. King has been
selected. Ho lives in the vicinity of
Edmonton. Alberta, and what he says
will bo of interest to those who cop
template moving to Central Canada
Every line of the letter is interesting
Those who wish for the particulars as
to how to secure homesteads and pre
emptions should write any Canadian
Government agent. Mr. King says:
"Mr. M. V. Mclnnnes, Detroit, Mich
igan: I am well satisfied with Al
berta. This country offers excellent
opportunities for anyone to make a
good homo for himself and family
if he is willing to put up with a few
hard knocks for tho first two or three
years. Rut it is worth a few hard
knocks to got a 160-acre farm of rich,
productive land with no mortgage on
It. This province is well fitted for
grains, stock raising and dairying. Wo
have found the climate generally
healthful, more healthful than Mich
igan, and although the thermometer
sometimes drops to 40 degrees below
zero In winter, yet we do not seem to
feel that temperature any more than
wo did 5 or 10 degrees below zero in
Michigan. We like the winters.
"The Government takes great inter
est in the education of the people and
quickly aids the settlers in establish
ing schools where they are called for.
The schools, though graded differently
than those in the States, are efficient
and advancing. Our great drawback
has been the limited and inadequate
railway facilities, but new roads are
being rapidly built and many more
are projected through various parts
of the province. The new policy of
the Alberta government to construct
a great many branch lines throughout
the province will greatly help all parts
of the country. If those new settlers
who have to go back a considerable
distance from existing railroads and
towns to find free homesteads will
but locate along the line of a project
ed railroad they will in two or three
years be near both town and railroad.
When I first came to this country

miles north, another 25 miles south,

MS FULL OF DOPE
JOHN JUNKEN, CONFESSED MUR
DERER IN JAIL.
REFUSES TO TALK OF CRIME
Cellmate Writes Sheriff Negro An
nounced Intention of Robbing
Woman When Released.
Des Moines.—The crime committed
by John Junken, the confessed slayer
of Clara Rosen at Ottumwa, was pre
mediated and the result of months of
planning. Long before the negro was
released from the penitentiary, where
he was serving time for robbing and
beating up a woman, he made the de
claration that immediately upon his
release ho "would do the trick
again.” And just a few days before
his discharge from prison he again
stated that It was his purpose and in
tention to rob and assault some wo
man.
Evidence to this effect Is In the
hands of Sheriff Griffin, who brought
tho negro Junken to tho Polk county
jail for safe keeping. The Informa
tion In a letter from Albert Evans,
a Missouri negro who was a cellmate
with Junken at Fort Madison.
"Junken Is guilty of that, crime,”
writes the negro Evans. "While we
w'ere still in tho pen together ho
frequently told mo that when re
leased ho would do the trick again,”
meaning that ho would hold up and
assault another woman, for which
crime he was then serving time. He
planned it whllo still In the pen and
when ho left I know that It was his
Intention to pull off tho stunt, as soon
as ho had an opportunity.”
Only Out A Few Days.
Evans’ statement Is given more
weight on account of tho fact that
Junken killed Miss Rosen just a few
days after ho had been liberated from
Fort Madison prison. Ho was re
leased on Jan. 19 and on Feb. 5 the
crime was committed.
The story theory upon which the
officials in Ottumwa are working, ac
cording to Sheriff Griffin, Ih that
Junken was broke and went “up on
tho hill,” as the vicinity of the crime
is referred to in Ottumwa, with the
solo purpose of picking an easy
victim. Ho met Miss Rosen, they be
lieve, attacked her and when she re
sisted or started to nuikn an outcry,
beat her over the head with the stone
which ho had picked up. He secured
$12.50 In cash from her In addition
to tho jewelry.
Junkon at present plans to stand
trial and has made a request that
Attorney S. Joe Brown, ono of the
best known negro lawyers In tho
state, be sent to him for consultation.
In an Interview at tho county jail ho
Intimated what his defense would be
when placed on trial for his crime.
“I was full of dope, I tell you,
chuck full of It,” ho moaned as he
tossed about on his narrow bunk In
the St. Louis cage. "That Is all I
have got to say about It, I was just
full of dope."
To Sheriff Ben Ness he stated that
he had been chewing cocaine, but to
Sheriff Griffin of Albia on the way to
Des Moines he said he had been eat
ing opium. And nt another time It
is said he made the declaration that
he was drunk at the timo of the
commission of the crime.

clams. When once upon a time he at
tended a Rhode Island clam bake he
overtaxed his capacity and was sore
ly distressed. But his faith In prayer
was unabated. Leaving the party and
going down on his knees behind a

NEW IDEA
Helped Wia. Couple.
It doesn’t pay to stick too closely to
old notions of things. New ideas often
lead to better health, success and hap
piness.
A Wls, couple examined an idea new
to them and stepped up several rounds
on the health ladder. The husband
writes:
"Several years ago we suffered from
coffee drinking, were sleepless,
nervous, sallow, weak and irritable.
My wife and I both loved coffee and
thought it was a bracer." (delusion.)
“Finally, after years of suffering, we
read of Postum and the harmfulness
of coffee, and believing that to grow
we should give some attention to new
ideas, we decided to test Postum.
"When we made it right we liked it
and were relieved of Ills caused by
coffee. Our friends noticed the change
—fresher skin, steadier nerves, better
temper, etc.
“These changes were not sudden,
but relief increased as we continued to
drink and enjoy Postum, and we lost
the desire for coffee.
"Many of our friends did not like
Postum at first, because they did not
make it right. But when they boiled
Postum according to directions on
pkg., until it was dark and rich, they
liked it better than coffee and were
benefited by the change.” "There’s
a Reason.”
Name given by Postum Co., Battle
Creek, Mich. Read "The Road to Well
