of Coos Bay, the man, who, as chair
man ot tho Republican central com
mittee of Oklahoma, carried that
state for Taft at tho last presidential
election. Colonel Grimes arrived on

A flold trial Is a raco fcotwoon bird

Speed and stamina aro necessary,
but a brain and a good noso are
equally Important. A dog that Is
