CRAZY CHAPTER OF BLUNDERS No One Can Hear Him Speak Without Seeing the Reality of His Indigna tion Over the Heartless Policy of | the Democratic Administration Toward American Men, Women and Children, American Citizens, Sol diers and Sailors Along and Across the Rio Grande. j Soon after Mr. Hughes was nomi nated a friend said to him: "Governor, if the American people forget the Mexi can disgrace they do not deserve to have you for President.” Quick as a Hash he replied: "The candidate who dodges the Mexican disgrace does not j deserve to he President.” He did not pass around his address of acceptance for compliment or criticism in ad vance of its delivery but the amount of space In* devoted to the Mexican disgrace—"that confused chapter of blunders” —surprised no one who had talked with him since his nomination. It has been in his mind and on his mind more than any other single prob lem with which Mr. Wilson has pal tered. To talk with him is to see at once the reality of his indignation over the heartless manner in which American men. women and children, American j citizens, soldiers and sailors have been j abandoned by the Administration along and across the Rio Grande, the vic tims of Mexican armed forces, outfit ted with American ammunition and I American rifles, Mexicans whom Air. Wilson lias coddled one day as pa triots only to chase the next as bandits. It is apparently the belief of Mr. Wilson that the people of the United States are not interested in Mexico. His defenders have declared that it ; was on “old story and out of date.” ! Mr. Hughes lias a better opinion of fils j fellow countrymen. He has proved 1 himself a better judge of their feelings. He has made "tin* Mexican disgrace” i a foremost issue of his campaign. He ! has assailed the record of the Admin j istrntion in that respect in almost every speech he has made. He lias nev | er failed to strike a responsive chord in the hearts of his audience, whether > speaking In Carnegie Hall, New York, from the platform of his train at Grand Forks, North Dakota, to a vast audience at Portland, at the exposi tion at San Diego or in the prairie states of the Middle West. He has re futed the slander, sometimes heard in I the effete Hast, that the people of the j great West do not care what happens | to their fellow citizens in Mexico or I to the flag beyond the border. No | man horn in the West has a firmer j fnith in the fundamental patriotism | and "dominant Americanism” of the : people of that section than Mr. | Hughes. He holds them responsible in lurge measure for the encourage ment and support he received while Governor of New York in his war ui>on political graft and political boss ism. He thinks they had much to do with conscripting him as the cham pion of nationalism in the current cam paign. He showed his confidence in their practical idealism when he made ! “the Mexican disgrace” an uppermost I Issue of his campaign. He has been , vindicated by the response his arralgn- I ment of the Administration on this ! score has everywhere evoked. From i Maine to California "the Mexican dls | grace” is a sore subject with red blooded Americans today. But no | where between the oceans are the out rages Inflicted in Mexico upon Ameri can honor, life and property more keenly resented than around the fire sides of the great West. Mr. Hughes is no stranger to the West. His straightforward talk on Mexico proves It. : IDEALS OF THE SUCCESS OF THE PLAIN PEOPLE “If I did not believe that the Republican party was the party of true progress, which was pre pared under Its leadership to take the country along the way ! !; of adaptation to new needs and exigencies of the future. 1 '• should have no pride In repre senting it. Hut the party of Lin- ; coin is reunited today and we ;! consecrate it to the Ideals of Lincoln, and those ideals are permanent. These are the ideals J ! of the success of the plain peo- J • pie. They are the Ideals of the } j achievements under free instltu- } tlons, of success In nil the actlv- J n Itles of the co-operutlve energy 2 of the plain people.”—Churles 2 K. Hughes In a Speech Delivered 2 at I’inttshurg. N. Y. j REMEBER THE “COME CATCH VILLA” POSTERS? By the way, what has happened to Villa? Has he been captured yet? It is some time since the President started out to accomplish this by sending American soldiers into Mex ico. RETURNS TO FAMILY J. W. Frey, the Meeteetse man who left his family a moqth ago to travel and see what some other parts of the world leeked like, has returned and is looking after his children. By a chain of depressing circumstances the man became despondent and made up his mind that a change of scenery would relieve the tension. During his ab sence the good women of the town cared for the children and it is be lieved that the tangle is straightened out, for the present at least. CLOSE OUT CATTLE Richard & Comstock have cleaned up their entire lot of cattle bought here last spring for sale. Out of the last lot C. D. I’rante takes thirty-one head of two year old heifers, Frank Webber of Big Timber, Montana, got eight yearling steers, Dick Bumford of Broadview, took seventy two year old heifers, four cars were shipped to Orin Junction and the balance was' turned over to Simpson Bros, of Clark. The company has disposed of about two thousand head of stock in Park county which will within two years add greatly to the wealth of this sec-! tion. Jack Murray who has been the local representative of the company expects to be stationed in the south for the winter season. o STATE S. S. CONVENTION TO BE AT WHEATLAND The annual convention of the State 1 Sunday School association will be held at Wheatland on October 3,4, and 5. Each Sunday School in the state is requested to send at least one dele gate, for whom free entertainment will be provided by the people of Wheatland. A highly inspirational and instruct tive program, which promises to be of great value to Sunday school work ers, is being prepared. It is known that W. C. Pearce of Chicago, an in ternational Sunday school worker of wide fame, will be present and de liver a series of lectures to the con vention. Other speakers of promin ence will also be present. The famous Junior hand of Wheatland will give a concert each evening of the conven tion. Wheatland extends a cordial invi tation to deleagtes from all parts of the state to come and enjoy the hos pitality of the people of this garden spot of Wyoming. NO PROJECT FAIR Powell will not hold a project fair this fall and may not continue the plan, altho the idea has not been wholly abandoned. This year a larger display of the Powell products was made at the Park county fair than any previous year and a large number of prizes went to the exhibitors from that section. It is the hope of the: county fair board that the problem of transportation may be so overcome; by next year by the use- of a special, train and the improvement of the auto road that all may have the op portunity to attend the county fair. This year the attendance from Powell exceeded former years and the fair board is pleased with the cooperation received from that section. CALLED TO THE FRONT A.-S. Morse returned to the mobili zation camp at Cheyenne Sunday; the military authorities having re fused to accept a perfectly good resi gnation. Whether this presages a movement of the Wyoming troops to the border very soon or not, is of course impossible to tell; it may be only another indication of the lack of plan that characterizes the hand ling of the whole situation. But as the writer is still a military man, it is incumbent upon him to refrain from criticism of the administration—Pow ell Tribune. *«• * * * * *»* * * DR. C J.

QUALITY VERSUS QUANTITY Many housewives make a vital mis take in choosing some of their food stuffs on the basis of quantity. It has been proven time and again that the cheapest is always the most expensive, while the highest priced is not always the best. There’s a happy medium in every thing. When you select foods, be careful. Don’t choose any particular 'brand of, say Baking Powder for ex ample, just because you get a big can for a small price. The risk you take in ruining your entire baking and losing the cost of the materials involved is not any where equal to the small amount saved on the price of the Baking ! Powder. Then again, because the price is high, don’t think the quality is the best. Some women do, and they are losing money. 1 Look for the happy medium. You’ll find it. Choose a brand that costs a ’ moderate price and you’ll find it more economical to buy and more > economical to use. The best Baking Powder in the ■ world can be made so as to sell for 2or per lb.—Adv. : -o ; Ed McGuire and C. H. Davidson ■ were over from Meeteetse Friday on business. PAGE THREE
