Haviug a Good Time Scyene Picnic Was
—— Rained Out Saturday
Every fellow has his favorite
way of having a good time, and
what pleases some is not enjoyed
by others. Some men will go
wild about golf, while others
would go wild if they had to
watch a game. Some think
there is nothing like lishing,
while others are nevsr happy
unless they are at a ball game.
Personally, we get some enjoy-
ment out of almost any sport,
but for genuine pleasure there is
nothing else that appeals to us
so much as pitying ourself. We
like to sit in a quiet pla3e with
some other poor but honest man
and tell of all the troubles we
havb had and all we expect to
haye in the future. If some one
could oyerhear the talk he might
think we were blue and sad. but
this would be far from true.
We would be having the time of
our life. We like to picture our-
selves carrying a heavy burden
under which no other man could
stand. We have no patience
with fellows who sit around and

After Four Tears of Discc'iraging
Conditions, Mrs. Bollock Gave
Up in Despair. Husband
Came to Rescue.
Catron, Ky.—In an interesting letter
from this place, Mrs. Bettie Bullock
writes as follows: "I suffered for four
years, with womanly troubles, and during
this time, i could only sit up for a little
while, and could not walk anywhere at
all. At times, I would have severe pains
la my left side.
The doctor was called in, and his treat-
jnent relieved me for a while, but I was
■oon confined to my bed again. After
tat, nothing seemed to do me any good.
I had gotten so weak 1 could no* stand,
and I gave up in despair.
At last, my husband got me a bottle of
Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I com-
menced taking it. From the very first
dose, I could tell it was helping me. I
can now walk two miles without its
tiring me, and am doing all my work."
If you are all run down from womanly
troubles, don't give up in despair. Try
Cardui, the woman's tonic. It has helped
more than a million women, in its 50
years of continuous success, and should
surely help you, too. Your druggist has
sold Cardui for years. He knows what
it will do. Ask him. He will recom-
mend it Begin taking Cardui today.

One of the most Interesting fea-
tures of the recent Democratic con-
vention at St. Louis Is the fact that it
took lovely woman to force the only
roll call demanded on the national
platform, as well as to Inspire the
only real excitement that marked the
"Votes for Women" was the Issue
that stirred up things. The Mexican |
plank, nailed In at the last minute by
the platform builders, did not create'
a ripple. "Americanism" and "pre-
paredness" received polite ovations,!
but It remained for the woman suf-'
frage plank to start a real fracas. '
Headed by Gov. Ferguson of Texas,1
the untls endeavored to wrench thnj
suffrage plank from the platform. Hut |
President Wilson's feelings on the J
subject, as presented to the conven-l
tlon by Senator Walsh of Montana,!
were not to be ignored. And so, after)
i three-hour battle in which the term
'political expediency" was used with
telling effect, the antis were routed
ay a vote of 888H to 181
The vote, however, does not tell the
real story of the battle, which was
ane of the most vigorous and pic-
turesque ever staged at a national
Democratic convention. Fifteen worn-
?ii delegates fought from the floor on
the side of tho pro-suffraglsts, while
hundreds of their sisters waved yel-
low pennants and cheered them on
from the balconies. A thunderstorm
that almost drowned out the voices

roll call brought both the suffrage

It was the above little plank that
inspired Gov. Ferguson of Texas to
mount the platform In the Coliseum
nd read a minority report withhold-
ing the party support from the ladies
who want the vote. That the Demo-
cratic party should scorn the political
exigencies of the situation and defy
the 12 western states in which women
vote was the burden of his argument.
Sharing tho same opinion with him
were C. L. Bartlett of Georgia,
3tephen B. Fleming of Indiana and
"Jim" Nugent of New Jersey, the old-
time enemy of President Wilson. This
trio signed the minority report with
Lined up against Gov. Ferguson,
who acted as spokesman for tlfe ml-
aority, were Senator Stone of Mis-
souri, Senator Pittman of Nevada and
Senator Walsh of Montana.
Senator 'Nfyalsh did not mince mat-
ters in his argument for the adoption
of the suffrage plank. He stated plain-
ly the adoption of the plank was
necessary as a matter of political ex-
pediency, adding that the present
political situation in this country was
i condition and not a theory.
"The states in which women vote
control 91 votes in the electoral col-
lege," he said, adding significantly,
'every political party has declared for
woman suffrage in some way or other.
It becomes a Blmple question whether
you will incur the enmity of these

'as late as 1907 there were but two
jtates west of the Missouri river that

hat he revealed no secret when he

"The president believes it vital to
ais success that it stay in the plat-
form," he said. "I ask you in all the
fervor of my soul, who is there wiser

utes for rebuttal. The vote was then

The Women Delegates.
The presence of the 15 women dele-
gates at the Democratic convention
not only added color to the affair, but
changed the views of a number of the
men delegates on the subject of po
litical activity for women. For the
women delegates were a fine, whole
lome-looklng lot and they fought just,
is enthusiastically for the best Inter-
as! s of the party as the men.
Three of them, Miss Mary E. Foy
of California, Mrs. T. S. Talllaferro
at Wyoming, and Mrs. W. A Harris
Df Kansas, spoke before the resolu-
tions committee in favor of the suf-
frage plank which the National Amer-
can Woman Suffrage Association pre-
sented to the convention.
One of the other delegates, Mrs.
Teresa E. Graham, of Idaho, was nom-
inated by the National Democratic
committee to be one of the committee
that will notify Vice-President Mar-
ihall of bis nomination.

Next President Neither
Wilson Nor Hughes
Who will be the next Presi-
dent of the United States? Rob-
ert Lansing. But it isn't neces-
sary to get excited about it. It's
a fact, but a fact that needn't up-
set the campaign plans of any
presidential candidate. The
Secretary of State isn't in poli-
tics at all, and isn't likely to be.
No convention is going to nomi-
nate him. He isn't going to be
elected. Nevertheless, he'll be
the next President, and this is
the way of it. A law enacted in
1886 provides that whenever the
President and Vice President
are both unable for any reason to
perform the duties of the execu-
tive office, the Secretary of State
shall act as President. Presi-
dent Wilson's term expiies at
noon March 4, 1917. That is
Sunday, it's contrary to pre-
cedent. although not illegal, to
hold an inauguration on Sunday,
It is planned, therefore, to have
it on Monday, March 5. And so
for one day Secretary Lansing
will be President. He will be
empowered to occupy the White
House if he chooses, issue par-
dons, command the army and
navy, and even to ride to the
Capitol as the outgoing Presi-
dent in the inaugurating cere-
monies. It will be the first time
THE FARM AND SMALL TOWN
FURNISH BEST MATERIAL
FOR BIG LEAGUE TIMBER.
Looking over the roster of the big
league ball teams you will find name
after name of men who only recently
were boys on the farm or in the village
or small town. On the other hand, sur-
prisingly few hall from the big cities.
And yet, this is not so surprising after
all. Even laying asldo our knowledge of
the big part that the so-called country
boy has always played In the great af-
fairs of business and the nation, the
country Is the place to lay the founda-
tion necessary for athletes.
The photographs shown are familiar
to all lovers of the great National game.
In addition to their being representatives
of their type in the baseball world, all of
these stalwart athletes are great endors-
ers of that beverage you know and like
Short Histories of the Players.
JONES, Fielder Allison, Manager of St.
Louis Browns. Born August 13, 1871, at
Shingle House, Pa. Last season he camo
within one-half game of winning Federal
League pennant, finishing nearer the top
than any team in major leagues since
the Browns in 1889.
He says Coca-Cola is his favorite
ALEXANDER. Grorer Cleveland, Pitcher
Philadelphia Nationals. Born in St.
Paul, Nebraska, February 26, 1887, and
lives on a farm there now.
Alexander is one of the greatest pitch-
ers in the game today, being practically
responsible for the Philadelphia National
League team winning tho pennant last
year. Drafted by Philadelphia in Aug-
ust, 1910, with whom ho has since
played. He warmly endorses Coca-Cola
as a drink for athletes.
DOYLE, Lawrence, Captain New York
National League Club. Born at Casey-
ville, 111., July 31, 1886. Second baseman.
He has played with the New York
Nationals since 1907, and was appointed
Captain In 1912, which position lie has
since held with them. Leading hitter of
the National League for the season of
1915. Like all the best of them he is a
staunch believer in Coca-Cola.
Thero Is, by the way, a wonderful sim-
ilarity between the origin of these ball
players and that of the beverage which
they endorse. Coca-Cola might be called
an agricultural drink, both from the ma-
terials it is made of and because of its
groat popularity In the country as well
as in the city. For Coca-Cola, if ever
there was a natural, wholesome bev-
erage, is such—it itself is a gift from
Nature. Made from Nature's pure water,
flavored with the Juices of fine fruits
and things that grow and sweetened
with Nature's purest, finest sugar—and
please particularly remember this last-
Coca-Cola contains no artificial sweeten-
ing matter but Just the best of pure cane
sugar. It is this fine combination that
gives Coca-Cola Its deliciousness of
flavor, its distinctively refreshing and
thirst-quenching qualities and great
wholesomencss. That's why ball players,
athletes, fans—all classes and kinds of
men and women drink and endorse Coca-
Cola. Drink a glass or a bottle and you
will be just as enthusiastic about It.
