However, long before night the "fair
weather" had a different meaning, for
the clouds lifted and the sun shone as
brightly as it has any time this year.
The stars are shining tonight and old
settlers say the wind is not blowing
from the right direction for rain.
So eager were the people to see the
exhibits that Frank Meredith, secre

that there were more campers today
than ever before on the eve of the open

higher standard than ever before.
Flowers Bloom on Time.
One of tho leading attractions Is the

during the fair week, and the landscape
artist could not have done his work
better. In addition to the old beds,
there are two large ones of dahlias,
and a bed of mixed flowers.
Secretary Meredith declares that In

keen, and thousands of persons who
never before attended the exhibition

More than 300 children have exhibits
in the children's industrial department,
which is under the management of E.
F. Carlton, Assistant Superintendent of
rublic Instruction. The exhibits are
creditable to the pupils and their teach
ers. One of the most Interesting depart
ments of the fair will be that of eu

placed on exhibition and judged during
the week, the number being much
larger than ever before. Every part of
the state will be represented in the
Machinery Hall Crowded.

ins 65 per cent larger than the one It
replaced, is almost filled with exhibits,
and ponderous machinery is arranged
in rows outside. The pavilion and an
overflow tent for agricultural, horti
cultural and other exhibits are filled,
and the livestock exhibits are above
the average. Competition In several
classes of swine Is keen, and the same
is true of the horses. A. C Ruby, of
Portland, who has won many premiums
for horses in the past, is expected to
have hard sledding this year in his
determination to be a winner again.
Other features of the programme to

THE DALLES. Or Sept.' 28. (Spe

will determine whether the sale of in
toxicating liquor shall be prohibited in
The Dalles. Prohibition leaders are
circulating petitions. The campaign
has been carried on quietly and the
petition circulators have presented
them only to those who were supposed
to be In favor of the abolition of
saloons. Those who have been re

petition into "wet" territory. The Pro

gaining the required number of signa

by more women than men and it is
contended by some who have carefully
examined the law that the women are
not eligible to sign the petitions, be

the 1912 law.

ALBANY, Or., Sept 28. (Special.,
Remarried a few months after they
were divorced. Lulu B. Cary, of Sclo.
Or., and John A. Cary, of Chehalls,
Wash., are principals in the second
divorce case they have had in the same
court within less than a year. Mrs.
Cary filed a complaint for divorce In
the State Circuit Court here late last
evening, making the second case in
which she has been a plaintiff asking
for a legal separation from the same
husband within the past 10 months.
A story of separation, forgiveness
and reunion and another separation,
in all of which "another woman" fig
ured, is related in Mrs. Cary's com
plaint The plaintiff alleges that she
and her husband first were married
May 27, 1896, at Stayton, Or., and lived
happily on their, farm In Linn County
until about two years ago.' At that
time, so the plaintiff alleges, her hus
band began making frequent visits to
the home of Mrs. M. V. Vernon, a
widow, living near their home.
Mrs. Cary asserts that when she
remonstrated with her husband he re
plied that he no longer had affection
for the wife. Accordingly last Fall she
filed suit for divorce and a decree in
her favor was entered on November
Last June a reconciliation was ef
fected and the Carys were remarried.
Nine days after their second mar
riage, Mrs. Cary charges, Cary left
saying that he was going to Salem to
purchase a Wagon. He did not return,
she avers, for several days and then
confessed that instead of going to
Salem he had gone to Chehalls, Wash.,
to visit the "other woman."

Warding Off "Old Age"
A London Physician says:'
When a distinguished scientist like Dr. Newsholme, of the
Local Government Board, warns us that we are ageing prema
turely as the result of the strain modern life throws on our
hearts and arteries, it is worth thinking what can be done to
, stop this health wastage.
Dr. H. Strauss, of Vienna, in a recent number of the
."British Medical Journal," makes the timely suggestion that
much can be done to retard this premature wear and tear by
paving a little attention to the diet.
The man whose heart or blood vessels begin to show signs
of not being as young as they used to be should, for example,
be very chary with his meaty foods. Two and a half to three
and a half ounces of meat a day Dr. Strauss considers quite
More important than what one eats, however, is what
one drinks. Alcoholic stimulants of all kinds tend to burden
the heart and blood vessels by making them work overtime,
which of course increases the wear and tear. But it isn't only
alcoholic stimulants Dr. Strauss inveighs against. Caffeine (tha
i powerful drug contained in tea and coffee) this distinguished
scientist points out, is also a powerful heart irritant. Every
time one takes a cup of these beverages the caffeine in it en
courages one's' heart to do extra work Which is practically
always quite uncalled for, and therefore is an utter waste both
of energy and heart muscle.
In these days when the strain of modern competition and
high-speed mental work keeps one's heart constantly working
at high pressure (thereby tending to produce premature wear
ing out) anything which can possibly add to the work thrown
on the heart. ought to be strenuously avoided. Caffeine, the
powerful heart irritant contained both in coffee and tea, U
one of these substances.
It is to meet the growing demand for a caffeine-free bev
erage, delicious and as appetizing as tea or coffee, that Postum
was invented. Made from the finest wheat,

Postum comes in two forms: '
Regular Postum must be well boiled.
Instant Postum is a soluble powder. A teaspoonful dissolves quickly in
