in the House.
Ihiring the present session it was ap
parent that his health was failing. He
walked slowly with a dragging step.
While he usually was oil the floor and
followed proceedings closely he. rarely
engaged in debate. On one it two occa
sions, however, he spoke at some length
on important question.
Close friends believe his death was
hastened by the death a year ago of hia
only grandchild. Champ Clark Thom
son, three-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs.
James M. Thomson. He was passion
ately fond of his grandson and asso
ciates say that after the child's death
they noticed a perceptible change in his
condition, which in the spring of 1020
alarmed the family.

It is not necessary here to recall
Champ Clark's rather tempestuous po
litical career. Some of his work in his
position on certain questions were bit
terly resented and sound'y condemned
his desire to annex Canada and his
pro-Certnsn leaning in the war in par
ticular. He had a large taste for fig
ures, a certain grasp of economics and
extraordinary memory for detail. It
was not until he had rendered long
service in the House that he achieved
his ambition to become a member of
the committee on ways and means, but
once there he amply demonstrated his
capacKy for work. As a cross-examiner
of witnesses he was incisive and pene
trating, and when the tariff bill was
under consideration he rendered valua

At the Base of Cliff Overlooking Lake
Erie Machines Probably
Had Been Stolen.
riufTaK X. V., March 3.-The Und
ine of the wrecks of seventeen auto-
niohiles at the foot of a cliff on the i
soinil snore oi lhisc j-i i ,
west of Buffalo, lias convinced the po
lice that companies insuring against
theft have been systematically cheat
ed. Insurance companies, in self de
fence, are carefully examining candi
dates for- insurance of this kind. .
In this lake chore graveyard of au
tomobiles are make of many sorts,
from the plain rnnabout up to the
pretentious limousine. Marks on the
edge of the fi.Vfoot cliff and the condi
tion of the machine indicate that the
automobiles were set afire before be
ing sent over.
The theory of the police Is that the
machines were stolen from their own
ers, insured against theft under fic
titious names, reported stolen so that
the insurance could be collected and
then destroyed to prevent detection
for theft.
Police records show that In three
months. 4S4 cars were stolen. 41 of
which were found burned or destroyed
and 1M are still listed a missing.

The old-time mixture of Sage Tea;

streaked and faded hair is grandmoth
er's recipe, and folks are again using it
to keep their hair a good, even color,
which is quite sensible, as we are living
in an age when a youthful appearance
is of the greatest advantage.
Nowadays, though, we don't "have
the troublesome task of gathering the
saee and the mussv mixing at home.
All drug stores sell the ready-to-use
product, improved by the addition of
other ingredients, called ''Wveth's Rage
and Sulphur Compound." It is very
popular because nnlody can discover
it ha been applied. Simply moisten
your comb or a soft brush with it and
draw this through your liair, taking
lone small strand at a time; by morn
' ing the gray hair disappears, but what
delight the ladies with Wyeth's Sage
: and Sulphur Compound, is that, be
sides beautifully dsrkening the hair
after a few applications, it also pro
duces that soft lustre and appearance
of abundance which is so attractive.
