When w com to talking about modern
endurance races for sport or for pelf, the
present riders can scarcely hold a candle
to F. X. Aubrey, who used to do some great
stunts cn the roof of a bronco, in I860 he
made a bet that he could cover the distance
from Santa Fe, N. M., to Independence,
Mo., over the old trail in eight days. It is

time. During this his first ride he killed
a number of horses,, the d ath of one when

wr.eru he obtained another animal.
This feat of Aubrey was regarded as the
greatest rlda ever made by any one In
ancient or modern times, and he became
the hero of the Incipient border town, Inde
pendmce, where he was feted and made
the lion of tho day. His fame spread
throughout the entire west, including Cal
ifornia where he is well known.
Althoimh reople marveled much at the
wonderful endurance of the man and the
remarkable time In wheh he had made the
trip, st 11 Aubrey himself wns not at all
satisfied with It. He determined Jo break
that record, and the following season made
another wager of JT'.O'O In gold that he
would do It. He accomplished his recorJ

the marvellous time of only five days and
thirteen hours.
His objective point was the same hotel

On tills ride, when ho reached that hos

LINCOLN. July 14.-(Snrcial. William J.
Bryan's national democratic committee
called on him this morning and after listen
ing to what he had to say fixed the date
for his official notification of his nomlna
tlon for August 12 at Falrvlew. The com
mlttee discussed every phase of the coming
enmpn gn and then adopted a resolution
providing that no contribution of over tlD.OOO
would be received from any one person
and all contributions over $100 would be
publlshed from time to time. Thus the
"psrnmount" Issue of the campaign will
bo the publicity of campaign contributions.
A subcommittee will select the officers of
the committee. John W. Kern, vice presi
dential nominee, will not find out about his
nomination until after James 8. Sherman,
the republican nominee, has received his
diploma from his notification committee.
A notable feature of the meeting was the
passing of Mayor Jim. His place has been
taken by P. L. Hall of Lincoln. The new
member of the committee Jumped at one?
Into the lime light by being made n mem
ber of the subcommittee of tho national
organisation which Is to announce Mr.
Brj'Bn's choice for chairman and secretary
of the nationnl body. This may mean that
Mayor Jim will still be cared for some
way, though he Is clear out of the running
for chairman of the national committee.
But Mayor Jim la still a high lord even
though shorn of official title so far as the
committee Is concerned. He was addressed
by John I. Martin as "Governor Dahlman"
right In the face of Mr. Bryan and the
latter made no objection.
Mayor Jim was asked this question: Will
you be the chairman of the national com
mittee?" He didn't even hesitate when he

The subcommittee of which Tom Taggart
is chairman will meet at the Auditorium
Annex In Chicago July 25 to select the
officers of the national committee. This
subcommittee Is composed of the following:

of Alabama, Nathan Cole, Jr., of California
and W. Tate Biady of Oklahoma.
The Parnmoant Issue.
The "paramount" Issue adopted by the
committee is as follows:
Resolved, That the democratic national
committee, in pursuance to tne pie ig s
given in the national platform recent y
adopted at Denver, announces that it will
accept no contributions whatever from cor
porations; that It will accept no Individual

Lunch at Falrvlew.
The party was met at Falrvlew by Mr.
and Mrs. Bryan and everyone stayed to
lunch. The dining room seats only forty
five and a second table load had to he
served. Mr. Bryan In his apology for
having such a small dining room said the
one at t he White House was larger.
Mr. Bryan and his old friend, Tom Tag
gart had aeveral conferences and each
looked full of harmony. Roger Sullivan
was given a glad hand and he seemed
harmonized. Jim Reed of Kanaus City
was also there, but he was so troubled
about whether to go on tho stump for
Cowherd for governor of Missouri he had
little to say to anyone.
All In all It was a nice harmony meeting
and not once wns the old fight between Mr.
Bryan and Roger Sullivan mentioned and
no one talked about French Lick Springs,
and even Ouffey of Penisylvanla seemed
to bi? forgotten. Most of the committee
men got out of town during the afternoo:i

Incidentally it is supposed that $10,00
resolutions will prevent Miyor Jim and
Brother-ln-Lnw Tom from getting r.ny more
$15,0ii0 bunches from New York. Bryan
himself proposed the resolution, or rather
gave the hunch for It In a speech he made
to the visitors.

Telia Grain Dealers Legislation Mar
Be Xecfminrr on Bill of
DES MOINES, la., July 14.-(Speclal.)-
E. J. McVann, secretary of the Omaha
Grain exchange, told the Iowa grain dealers
In an address here this morning that
unices railroads and shippers got together
and accepted the recommendations of the
Interstate Commerce commission ..for a
uniform bill of lading certain shippers and
committees representing largo Interests
would have to go to congress and secure
Wlslatlon which would compel the adop
tion of the uniform bills.
The secretary of the Omaha Grain ex
change addressed the Iowa Grain Dealers'
assoclatton at Its opening session on the
subject of the "Uniform Bill of Lading"
which Is just now the most timely topic
before the shippers of the country.
"It may be hard to get the legislation we
will ask from congress," he said, "but
when we have got it we will have some
thing or more than something. The whole
matter of hills of lading covering Inter
state shipments is In the hands of con
gress, and If a simple and practical form
could onco be prescribed by law, the states
would, undoubtedly, adopt the federal
form, and so the whole situation, which
Is now so complex and confusing, would
be cleared up for all time. I have, how
ever, tha greatest confidence that the
forms, prescribed by the ' Interstat Com
merce commission, will prove to be satis
factory. The commission Is an earnest,
hardworking body . of men, and, as at
present constituted, could hardly be Im
proved upon.
"But If the new hill of lading Is found to
be open to criticism. It will be because of
lack of power on the part of tho commis
sion, and not lack of earnest consideration
and knowledge of conditions.
"When shippers and railroads were hold
ing a conference on the subject of the uni
form bill of lading In Washington last
year, every time a railroad lawyer got on
his fept, the commission propounded the
question to him. "Do you believe that the
commission has the power to formulate
and enforce a.Cngalnst tha railroads, the
adoption of a uniform bill of lading?" and
without exception, every one of the lawyers
answered that he did not believe the com
mission hod any such power."
Tariff Leagrue Progress.
Mr. McVann was a member of the com
mittee of the National Industrial Tariff
league which was In conference In Wash
ington last October and he has been closely
identified with the movement for a bill of
lading which meets the requirements of
commerce. He said regarding the progress
"Out of all the discussion, speech making
and brief writing on this subject In the
pasr four years Irf 'hich I rmd a part
have grown the following conclusions: (1)
That a bill of lading Is not a negotiable
Instrument In the legal sense. (2) That
the conditions usually found on bills of
lading, placed there by -the carriers In
their own Interests, are void If they are
not In accord with the terms of the law
In the state where the bill of lading Is
made, or where they are repugnant to what
Is known as common law, which Is the
body ot law that Is not expressed In
statutory form. (3) That a bill of lading
Is a contract of carriage, nothing may be
Included In It that Is In contravention of
the law as, for instance, an Illegal rate.
"I have heard the suggestion made that
the grain Interests should have a separate
bill of lading applicable to their business.
This suggestion probably grew out of the
simple form that was formerly used by the
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railway
company, and may still be used by that
company for all I know. It Is one of the
best hills of lading I ever saw, but It is
open to one or two serious objections. The
most Important of these 1 the lack of
necessity for a separate form of bill of
lndlng for the grain business. There Is
much to be said In favor of' a special form
of bill of lading for a business like the
fruit businens where practically every
thing shipped is highly perishable and must
be given spocial service."

Two-Year-Old Tot Who Can Repeat
From Memory the "Merchant
ot Venice."
What would you think of a child who at
years of age could repeat from memory
every line of Shakespeare's "Merchant of
Venice," rendering It quite as cleverly as a
professional reader?
No doubt such a claim would arouse con
slderable skepticism and would ordinarily
be looked upon as the pardonable ravings
of an overfond parent.
But little Doris Smith of Maiden, Mass.,
has repeatedly performed this remarkabla
feat of memorising and has shown such
wonderful ability for her years thst she
has awakened no little Interest among her
neighbors, who predict a remarkably bril
liant future for the little girl.
Her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Albert Smith
of 30 Emerald street, ore at a loss to ac
count for her wonderful gift, but Say that
little Doris, noon after she was 18 months
old, developed a remarkable facility for
mimicry, and at thnt very tender age was
nble to lisp and remember many long sen
tences which thry taught her.
Today, although she la not quite 3 years
old, she has mastered some of the most
difficult speaking pieces In the English
larpuage, and Is able to tepeat them, al
though she does not follow the full signific
ance of what she is saying. She has be
come familiar with many foreign words
of her pieces and speaks them with a
faultless accent.
"I know hundreds of pieces," she said
when interviewed by a Post reporter. "I
can say tho speech of Brutus and 'Thans-
topf-is' and some Caudle lectures, and the
whole of 'Mother Goose' and some chapters
firm the Bible, and I know all th popular
songs," and then she began to sing and her
powers aa a singer are no less wonderful
than as a speaker.
The child uses language such as few chil
dren of 10 years understand. Bhe told me
pathetically of i.ome one who had his leg
amputated, and said she did not car) for
artificial flowers.
Mrs. Smith does not try to teach the c'. lid
anything, but the littlo one absorbs ull that
siie hears. She heard her aunt reciting and
resOIng the "Merchant of Venice" and one
day surprised the family by repeating It.
When sneaking her pieces the little girl
makes gestures, showing a rare familiarity
with their meaning.
In spite of her precnclousness little Doris
Is In every way a charming chill and
dearly loves to play with dolls. Blie Is
often heard telling them stories which sh?
builds from her own Imagination.
The fame of the little girl as a speaker
attracts many visitors to the Smith home
end Doris Is always ready to entertain. H;c
mother says If the little one takes to the
stage when she gets older alie shall en
courage her in that profession. lloston

Candidate for Vice President Goes
Through Omaha Unnoticed.
Refuses Even to Disease Possibilities
for Chairmanship, 8aylnar Selec
tion Will Be Left Entirely to
National Committee.
John W. Kern of Indiana, nominee on the
democratic ticket for vice president passed
through Omaha at 4:30 Tuesday afternoon
on the Rock Island bound for his home
In Indianapolis. On the train with him
were several prominent aemocrats, among
them Tom Taggart.
There was no demonstration at the de
pot and few except those that were on
the train knew that the candidate was In
the station. He was corralled by the re
porters as he sat In his seat telling
stories, and readily consented to step out
side the train to have his photograph tak
en. "Make them -a speech," said one of his
friends as he started out of the car.
"Not If I can help It," he answered.
At his request he was allowed to get
off on the opposite side of the train from
the depot and patiently stood while the
photographer took two or three snaps at
his face.
"I can't s,ay who will be chairman of
the national committee," he said In re
sponse to a question. "Mr. Bryan and I
did not discuss that much. We will leave
It entirely to the national committee. The
committee will meet July 25. and will decide
on a chairman then.' No, I can't say what
Mayor Dahlman'S chances are. I am In no
position to discuss the chairmanship as
that Is a matter entirely In the hands of
the committee."
Mr. Kern said he would make an exten
sive campaign trip over the country, but
declared he could go Into no details for
the contest.
"We haven't decided on plans for the
campaign yet," he said. "The committee
will take that up and will decldo what
course we will take."
At this point the train started to move
and the vice presidential candidate swung
onto the platform with an agility that be
lled bis fifty years and hs gray hair.
Mr. Kern Is a man of modest demeanor
and gave evidence of one qualification at
least of a good campaigner. He can re
member names and incidents. H. T. Mc
Calg of Omaha Introduced himself to Mr.
Kern as the son of an old schoolmate of
his, now Mrs. John McCalg. When he
heard Mrs. McCalg's maiden name he smiled
and said: "Yes, I remenicer her well."
Then he recalled some of the nicknames
she had gone by while a girl. He also
remembered some of their mutual friend
and chatted for a few minutes about what
had become of them. He and Mrs. Mc
Calg had been friends In Warren coflnty.

years ago.
Rome Authors Stick to the Pen.
Perhaps you did not know that a great
many authors have their assistants
whom they term amanuenses. A volum
inous writer was expatiating on the ad I
vantages or employing an amanuensis to
save the time and trouble of writing.
"How do you manage It? I never tried
dictation," said a veteran of the pen who
had made himself famous and poor by his
pen. "Why, I walk about the room, kick
ing over a chair now and then, jingling
the keys In my pockets, smoking a cigar
ette and dictating to a very clever fel
low, who puts down what I say In most
correct style. All I have to do Is to look
over the manuscript and then send It to
the press."
Our veteran writer, whose name Is not
to be mentioned, was delighted with the
Information, and desired his friend, the
voluminous writer to let him try his
amanuensis. Surely. The latter waited
upon him with pen. Ink and paper, and
got ready to Jot down great thoughts.
The v.tfran raced up and down the room
many times, pulled at his beard, Jammed
his hands In his pockets, tapped himself
on the brow, took a drink, lit a pipe, and
broktt a few pieces of bric-a-brac. After
racking hi brains to no purpose for half
an hour he handed a 15 note to the iman

Complexion Treatment That Requires
Only a Fen Mlnotri,
Writers of articles on the care of the
complexion seldom take Into consideration
that the average woman has something to
occupy her time In addition to exercising,
massaging and going to beauty specialists.
Some suggestions are perfectly ridiculous
as, for Instance, one in an eastern maga
zine, which recently advised every woman
to spend two or three hours dally on horse
back. On the other hand, here is a pimple
recipe that can be prepared at. home and
whose application requires only two or
three minutes dally. Obtain at your drug
store two ounces of Rose Water, one. ounce
of Cologne Spirits and four ounces of Ep
potone (skin food). Take these home and
put tha Eppotone in a pint of hot watVr
(not boiling) and after dissolved strain and
let cool, then add the Rose Water and
Cologne 8r'v-its. The dally use of hla
simple and harmless face wash tones up tha
skin and restores the bright, rosy com
plexion of youth. The Eppotone prevents
or removes freckles, tan and sunburn.
This fine toilet preparation Is to be pre
ferred to powders, rouges and cosmetic.
