Mr. Egan predicted his own nomina

The Ledger has predicted Mr. Egan's

At an adjourned meeting of the
Taft campaign committee held in
Aberdeen yesterday the committee
men present expressed themselves as
being well pleased with the outlook
for a Taft delegation to the republi

return of Representative Burke to
congress. The situation in the sec
ond district was thoroughly canvass
ed and the determination was reach
ed to wage an aggressive warfare for
Burke from now on, although reports
from every county were extremely
favorable. The committee agreed
upon J. F. Halladay of Iroquois, as
the choice for national committee
man from South Dakota.

STATE MEETING AT MITCHELL
Roosevelt republicans will meet at
Mitchell March 16. The call is as
"There will be a meeting of the
Roosevelt republicans of South Da
kota at Mitchell on Wednesday, the
16th of March, 1912, for the purpose
of organizing a South Dakota Roose
velt league and taking such other
steps as at the meetiug may be deem
ed advisable in order to promote the
candidacy and secure the nomination
of Theodore Roosevelt.
"Each organized Roosevelt club in
the state is invited to send represent
atives, and in those counties where
such clubs have not been organized,
the friends of Roosevelt are requested
to meet and select and send to the
meeting representatives of the coun-
'. v.'. "Sift* 1W
H, R. Dennis, President.
Martin Monson, Secretary."
TWO OF A KIND
Judge: The governor of South Da
kota was in his stateroom when the
train pulled into Cincinnati. The
governor of North Dakota, coming
into the passageway, tapped gently
ou the door.
"Governor," he said, "in ten min
utes the motor cars leave which take
us to the banquet hall."
"But governor—" the voice of the
governor of South Dakota, within,
was much exasperated—"I cannot
find that infernal collar button."
Seven minutes' time elapsed. Again
the governor of North Dakota ap
"Only three minutes'more govern
or," was the urgent message.
"Where in the name of Moses is
that unspeakable collar button?"
were the words of the governor of
South Dakota, now on all fours
scrutinizing the floor.
Then there was an explosion as the
distinguished state executive bumped
his head against the bottom of the
berth. It was just after this that the
governor of South Dakota said to the
governor of North Dakota, "Govern
or, there are two classes of people
who have to put on full dress suits
every night they appear in public
governors and waiters."
WHAT IT COSTS.
Iowa City Republican: Some of the
papers are discussing what it costs to
be a delegate to the national conven
tion. Two years ago the cost to each
delegate from Iowa to the Chicago
convention, aside from personal ex
penses, was about $78. An assessment
of $100 was made upon the delegates
and $25 on the alternates. After
everything was settled up a refund of
about $22 was made to each delegate
and a proportional amount to the alter
nates. The principal work of a dele
gate is to explain that he has no tickets,
but his duty is to get acquainted with
the doorkeeper and police s.o that he
can get his friends into the hall. There
are always enough fellows with lack of
tact or an oversuppl.v of dignity to
work the doors, to stay in the hall and
do the voting.

ribbon are braided in with the hair.
Then comes the style in vogue in the
early Victorian period. The parted
hair is drawn down and placed at the

COAT SUITS FOR
Style Favors Hip Length and
Wide Turnover Collars.
According to latest fashion informa
tion the newest thing in qpat suits is
described thus: A narrow skirt with
practically no flare at the hem and
with the straight side seams stitched
in two laps, one of which is cut out
and crossed over the other at the
depth of eight Inches from the edge
The coat reaches just a little below
the hips, has a wide turnover collar,
which reaches half way to arm, and
long, wide revers, which run well be
low the bust. The fastening is at
the waist line and is decidedly double
breasted. There are three large satin
buttons and three knotted loops of
heavy silk cord.
The novelty iu the cut of this coat is
the use of a peasant top. which in
cludes the shoulder and sleeve cut in
one. This top reaches to the bust in
front and to the shoulder blades in
the back. It is joined to the lower
part of the coat by a narrow strip of
black satin, tcr^vhich the two edges of
cloth are stitched. This method of
cutting resembles a bodice with a
yoke, yet the straight lines from
shoulder to hem are maintained and
the effect is good.
The sleeves in the jacket reach to a
trifle below the elbow, are straight and
rather small and finished with a wide
turnover cuff of heavy Venetian lace.
This material is repeated at the neck
In a wide turnover collar, which is laid
over the larger one of the coat fabric.
The suit Is of foulard, which the
French tailors are using a good deal
Instead of serge or linen. The model,
however, can be copied in any of the
lightweight materials and will look as
•well as it does In silk. One would
not" wish Venetian lace cuffs on a lin
en or serge suit yet they could be
substituted by satin or striped silk.
The turndown collars In French
pique and other unstlffened material
have been appropriated by the young
women and are much used with the
soft blouse of flanriel or pongee.
These are much fancied for sporting
purposes and may be of wash silk flan
