Veterans of Foreign Wars, at the closing session of their annual encamp ment here today, voted down a res olution disapproving the adoption of the- prohibition amendment to the constitution. There -were few rotes against the rejection. - . As submitted to the encampment the resolution neither commended nor condemned the amendment, hut objected to its adoption when many men were absent from the country 'on war duty. The veterans also voted against admitting women to their organ isation, and 'likewise refused to admit any resident of this country who served in the allied armies during the World war. m The first meeting in connection with the coming Community fairl was held Thursday afternoon, and was attended by a good sized crowd. Much enthusiasm was cre ated and frotai all reports the fair will not belacking in any way thia year. Besides many smaller de tails which were worked out the exact date was settled upon, which will be Saturday, Oct 2, with pos sibly a double-header baseball game the day before. S. O. Morrow was elected head of the horse depart ment, which place was made va cant by the death of Bunt Lafferty. Frank Werts was also elected to fill the vacancy in the machinery department caused by the absence of D. F. Keller. One thing settled upon .at the meeting, ' which will come as good news to' the ladies of the community, was that a big dinner would not be served this year, but that the large crowd would be nicely taken care of at I the dinner hour at five or six large 1 hot lunch stands, which will be properly scattered over this vil lage. None will be disappointed re garding the dinner, because there will be plenty for all to eat The exhibits promise to be even larger than last year. After waiting all summer,' Bur gess at last received a car of oil, and it will probably be applied to the main road the week alter the Aledo fair. Owing to the large amount of travel next week, those in charge thought It best to wait until a time when the roads were not being nsed 'so extensively.- The dogs made another raid Sunday night on the sheep of this locality, tearing to pieces, five "head of the flock of Ed Hines.

There was hardly a Burgess vi cinity family at home Saturday, as almost everybody was at North Henderson attending the big' town ship fair.

Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Gladson visited Saturday and Sunday with North Henderson relatives. We failed to announce last week the arrival of a baby boy at the Clare Bradford home. Clare Close's string of sheep still continue to win at the county fairs, taking many of the prizes at the Kewanee fair last week. They are at the local fair in Aledo this week. William N.

Gover nor Cox, after attempting the role of an idealist has turned to the coarse methods of ward politics, re sorting to wilder;, and wilder charges. Governor : CooUdge, i Re publican vice , presidential ' candi date, said today. .. . ' The governor, addressing the Re publican state convention, said the Democratic nominee tor the presi dency was named by convention in which "idealists had very little influence." - "Yet," he added, "after receiving a baptism of idealism at the White House, he attempted for a time, the role of an idealist ' He was to be the apostle of the "Great and sol emn referendum.' His address of acceptance started that way. "But the success has not been marked. Soon the methods of ward politics prevailed. To that eminent valetudinarian In the White house, a master of logical expression, cor rect of style, always dignified, as he has beheld his exponent resort ing to coarser and coarser methods, wilder and wilder charges, the ref erendum must for him become sol emn and more solemn." The Democratic administration for the last eight years was termed by Governor Coolidge a "chapter of accidents," and a "m'rage of false hopes and false security. He pic tured the country as "turning with admiring eye to the matchless fig ure of ' Washington, portrayed not as secreting in his pocket an act relieving him from war powers, his country had bestowed on him, but gladly standing before congress and voluntarily sun-ending those powers, which belong in time of ' peace only to the people."
