fancy prices, but now that the plug hat

summer outing, the market again turns
to all purpose stock ranging in weight
from 1100 to 1500 pounds'. Jesse Wiley

keeping tab on all available stock,

"Put Best Foot Forward and Keep
A-hustling," Is His Rule of Life.
Danced a Jig a Few Weeks Ago and
Outshuffled an Orchestra Strong In
His Likes and Dislikes.
Uncle Joe Cannon, the speaker of
the house, havingsurvived the ordeal
of his seventy-third birthday, looked
as chipper the other day as he did ten
years ago. hie appeared just as pug
nacious, too, as ever, and he said he
expected to be around and "doing
things" on a good many more birth
days. He put in his seventy-third an
niversary much the same as he does
every other working day in the year.
After a call on President Taft and a
visit to the committee on appropria
tions he put a red carnation on the
lapel of his coat and waded through a
mass of letters and telegrams of con
The speaker stands pat on his decla
ration that "this country is a hell of a
success." This was a quotation as
cribed to the speaker which properly
summed up his estimate of the United
"I don't believe I said It," said the
speaker. "It shocked a lot of good
people, but it lasted,, and it's true. In
this country, where 90 per cent of the
people are trying to push ahead, where
they are racing to get in advance of
the other 10 per cent, it is up to those
in the rear to try to qual them by
using their mental, and physical abil
ity. The country has no patience with
those who are discontented and abnor
mal. Tne applause is for the one in
front. The man who attains power
and keeps it deserves his success.
Carping and complaining will not ad
vance the man in the rear. He must-
put his best foot forward and try his
hardest." ' - " "
These sentiments ' were born with
Uncle Joe in Guilford, N. C, on May
7, 1836. It was the practice of these
sentiments that got him into public
life and kept him there. He has spent
thirty-four years in the house of rep
resentatives. Prior to that eight years
were given to the state of Illinois as
a district attorney. In all of that time
Joseph G. Cannon has been trying, and
trying hard. He has had to try, be
cause leadership in the house "of rep
resentatives is not a birthright or a
legacy. The man who wins must be
the best politician of 390 other best
politicians of the United States.
Aside from the ' constitutional au
thority -to preside over the house, the
speaker has a wealth of political wis
dom- as a scepter., of power, With
these two attributes he has popularity
and an iron hand. Seven years ago he
was elected speaker of the FiftyH
eighth congress. He took the gavel
from General Henderson of Iowa.
Speaker Henderson had taken the
place of Czar Reed and hifa rules along
with . it. Speaker Cannon has taken
the Reed rules and outczared the czar.
No man who has ever presided over
the house has . dominated it as com
pletely as the present occupant of the
chair. True, many fights have been
made on him, but not once has the op
position been able to put .much of
dent in the "iron duke's" armor.
Although seventy-three and weighed
down with more problems and cafes
of state than many a younger man
could shoulder, the speaker is as frisky
as a colt and likes to show it At
dinner of the Jamestown survivors
few weeks ago he danced a jig in
competition with a boy of twenty-five,
He put such life in "Turkey In the
Straw" that the Hungarian orchestra
called it a day and knocked off with
Uncle Joe still shuffling.
Uncle Joe is strong in his likes and
dislikes. Strongest of his dislikes is
his contempt for the man who tries to
upset the standing' order of things by
demagogy or appeals to popular fancy.
His heartiest like is for green corn on
the cob. It is told that while he was
a new member of congress he boarded
at a Washington hotel which put up an
excellent lot of green- corn. Mr. Can-j
non had invited a friend to dine with
him. When the corn on the cob was
brought in the congressman fell to
with vigor, inviting the . man from
home to. "pitch in." The guest side
stepped the corn, but Uncle Joe kept
after it nntil he had finished about six
ears. Then he insisted on his friend
taking some, and when he refused Un
cle Joe started again, "not to let it
spoil." He was just polishing up the
last ear when the guest broke" In with:
"Say, Joe, don't you think it would
be a little bit cheaper for you to board
in a livery stable?'
The speaker has a wholesome regard
for the United States senate,1 but he
has an old fashioned Idea that the
house Is the superior branch. So it
happens that when a messenger from
the senate arrives and addresses "Mr.
Speaker" with a lowly bow Mr. Can
non sits bolt upright and says, "Mr.
Secretary" without the bow. ""A JTriend
chided him for this and told him that
It was customary to bow to the sen
"The whole d senate can't make
me bow to it. and I'll. be d if I'll
bow to one of its messengers," said
' the speaker, settling that tittle matter.
In commemoration of his birthday
the Republican - members of congress
from North Carolina, where the speak
er was born, presented to him an un
usually- large dipper made' of a gourd
from the Tar Heel State.

Email Band's Brave Deed to Be Com

great personal risk to themselves, res

in what is now Walworth county,

roving band of Sioux from their homes
at Lake Chetak, Minn., are to be re

Under the auspices of the South Da
kota Historical society and the South
Dakota Pioneer association a granite
shaft will be erected, on June 27 a
mile from Mobridge, S. D., where the
rescue was effected.
The "fool soldier" band consisted of
eleven young Indian braves, and their
act was one "of the exceptional deeds
of the aborigines in which the whites
were befriended at the risk of incur
ring ostracization and the enmity of
not only their own tribe, but the entire
Sioux Nation, at the time powerful and
warlike. ' ,
After conceiving the idea of saving
the white captives the young braves
watched with unceasing vigilance un
til .the opportune time came, when they
secured possession of the captives and
rushed - them to a white settlement
whence they were returned to their
Walworth county was at that time
totally unsettled by whites, but after
the whites settled the. country the
members of the band were always wel
come guests at any white man's house,
and after the Walworth County Old
Settlers' association was formed the
survivors of the band were features of
every reunion of the association.
The monument erected to their mem
ory will be a plain granite shaft, stand
ing upon two mammoth native bowl
ders and suitably inscribed with the
account of the deed which won the In
dians immortality; Doane Robinson of

Steamship Company's Plan to Protect
Card Players From Sharps.
Chagrined because of the failure of
passengers to prosecute ocean gam
blers, Captain Clippers of the steam- j
ship Kaiser Wilhelm II. and the offi
cers of the North German Lloyd have
arranged a new method to warn pas
sengers, which, it is believed, will be
effective. It is the posting of photo
graphs in -the first class smoking room.
As warnings printed in various lan
guages in big black type seem to De
of no avail, the system of framed pho
tographs .of men whose methods are
so well known that there can be no
mistake will be installed.
The photographs of the gamblers
with- their various aliases attached
will be framed, and it is believed that
no gambler whose face is pictured will
dare to set his foot pn the steamship
that is so decorated.
The express ships will be first equip
ped, and if this proves a success all
others will have the interesting bureau
of faces for travelers to scan.
Pen Picture of Turkey's New Sultan.
The new sultan of Turkey as he ap
peared at the selemlik is thus de
scribed by a correspondent: "Nobody
knows what he thinks. He said noth
ing. Many believe he feigned ignorance
and indifference in order to save bis
own life, and to look at him today It
appears as If the simulation will continue.-
One can only read in his pro
truding eyes good natured ingenuousness-
and almost infantile curiosity,
which , contrast strongly with his aged
appearance. . He certainly is good, but
weak. ' I was unable to see in him a
sovereign of the new epoch, a reorgan
lzer of Turkey, a sultan of progress."
