Carpenter Scheerer co., foreign advertising representatives fifth Avenue building new York people s Gas building Chicago the weather probably fair tonight and sunday. Yesterday s maximum 91. Last night s minimum 6. His la test speech president Wilson said some things in a speech at the new York press club banquet Friday night that he May some Lime wish to recall. As was the Oase with his utterances at an Indianapolis gathering less than two years ago. One instance was when he asked lis audience whether they deemed it America s duty quot to carry self defense to the Point of dictation into the affairs of another of course the question was answered by a decided negative. But the question will quot serve to recall the fact that it was . Wilson s quot dictation into the affairs of another people quot that first brought the present trouble and aroused the bitter feeling of the mexican people. It was dictation pure and simple to another people a Hen . Wilson undertook to Tell mexicans whom they should not have for president alter Maseru s death and he carried his dictation almost to War in his Light against Huerta. U to that time organized Border raids were unknown. Again he Eaid in his press club speech "1 have constantly to remind myself that 1 am not tie servant of those who wish o enl Aiice the value of their mexican investments. But that 1 am the servant of the rank and tile of tiie peo in of tiie ignited that paragraph almost suggests the possibility that our own Finly Gray has been giving lessons in political quot to poodle quot to the Man in the White House. Already As the president knows Liat has been done in preparation for invasion of Mexico if deemed necessary is held by a considerable element to have been done at the instance of those having mexican investments. There is no base we believe for any such charge yet it is being ufred Industry duly to discourage in Lisments Good to the cause o american could possibly come of the silent of inning up that question and his utterance looks very much like a play to the galleries for votes. A Wise Leader in the opinion of All thinking men should strive in a period of crisis to unite the people and nothing would go farther to prevent a successful outcome of the trouble with Mexico than to exploit the claim that hellish moneyed interests Are behind even anxious for a clash with Mexico As the president s words alone quoted already imply. a i full Ollney Sib la moved. The Village in the Spring of 1864 a Day july a is is ram i in Xijiu historian Fayette county Centenni a. Dean of fraternity of Fayette county doctors and Channan of the county Council a Man whose influence was broadly Good. The death of . R. W. Sipe of Orange mentioned briefly in the news last evening removed a citizen whom that neighbourhood indeed the county As a whole loses Voith regret. He was the Dean of the Fayette county medical fraternity chairman of the Board of county councilman a Well known Churchman and what is still More to the purpose a gentleman whose nearest neighbors were his Best friends. . Sipe had been in failing health for three months. His demise was not a Surprise to those who knew his coi Ulitin Best. He was born in Jefferson county. April 8, 184�. He moved to Orange Early in the Spring of 18 54. A widow who formerly was miss Sarah Phillips survives him As do four children Richard of Indianapolis . John sii e. Of Carthage William of Orange and mrs. Florence Kennedy of Indianapolis. . Sipe was a devout presbyterian in his religious preference. He was a quiet but a thorough going Patriot and a citizen whose in Llu ence was Good in the largest sense. The last services probably will be held monday. Guest of the governor and mrs. Ralston yield Linic timon a la lilt lit fill event rivals it ii new invited. At Yauip among the Many bits of Wai and near War in and about to amp Ralston the Indiana Olis Star today tells of the following mrs. Samuel m. Ralston wife of the governor led a party of friends to amp Ralston yester ii morning and remained for a Cicilic dinner which they took with a them. The piece de resistance of the spread was a Juicy Clerry pie which mrs. Ralston had baked just be re leaving Home. Those making Tuffe trip with mrs. Ralston were her son Julian and daughter miss rut ii miss Modelle Stubbs miss Lane Austin miss a Clarion Wheeler mrs. Harry Arnold a mrs. Arthur the ave and mrs. Lippi Inman. Of Indianapolis and mrs. Julian d. Hogate of Danville. Ind. That mrs. Kalston believes in quot preparedness when it comes to a picnic dinner was testified to by fou members of company 1, first regi Jent Wlinich is composed Lai gely of Indiana Liui Hersity Stile its and a hungry quot War quot correspondent who Wei e invited to the feast. The a a. In. Boys who were permitted to leave their own mess to oat mrs. Ralston s cooking were William Ochiltree Robert st in Well Carl Bauer and Clair Scott. Quot web y a Fec to Una tel y Samuel Gompers seems to be a bigger Man in the eyes of Carrau a than is the president of the United states. The drastic note sent by the latter nearly two weeks ago demanding the release of u. S. Prisoners and a statement As to his intentions remain unanswered by car Ranza. In the meantime Gompers a Rote to Carranza and without delay got the following reply quot in replying to your message dated yesterday 1 would state that the government under my charge has ordered the Liberty of the american soldiers whom the mexican forces took As prisoners at Carrizal Salute Verv affectionately. Y. the invitation of in. Ochiltree naturally is a distinction pleasing to All his friends. It is by no Means accidental since the Owhi Trees and the Ralston know each Osiier socially. Mrs. Ochiltree Kotlier of the guardsman and the governor s Wile Are friends of firm acquaintance both having entered membership in the Indiana press club at the same time and each finding much in com Mon with the other in club act Vilie about the state. Unofficial news front Mexico gives indication that Carranza s reply to Wilson s last note will be anything but conciliatory. In that Case the two forces May be brought into that the array and real War will a on. The presence of american troops on mexican soil against the consent and protest of that government will be the excuse Carranza will probably give for inaugurating hostilities if he strikes first. . And mrs. I rank gerling will motor to Shi Byville Tom now to spend a week with relatives. Miss Clara has Lecover etl from a Brief illness at Hei Home on Michigan Avenue. Miss Hilda Weaver has returned from a three week s visit with friends in Tipton. Mrs. Ivis Cooksey of Indianapolis is spending several Days with friends in this City.

Connersville has been More fortunate than most places of her number of inhabitants in the gifts she has received from her citizens.

During the later Days of Connersville no one has done quire for Conyersville s industries and in lending Hel Irful hand to struggling to ing men than e. A. Ansted. One pleasing feature of these gifts is that they have been Luule while the donors live. The Clio club will soon erect an ornamental Fountain at the interest tion of Centi al and Vii Ginia avenues. Perhaps the most interesting place around Connersville is this historic place is named from a giant Elm that was no doubt a King of the Early Forest. Some ten years ago when the place became the summer Home of the late George b. Markle of Hazelton a., and a Little later known As Elmhurst school for girls quot tree surgeons spent months to eating these wonderful old Trees. Of All kinds. The famous coi Don Elm i. Said to be �0 it. High and so reads feet. The Elmhurst Elm was found by the tree surgeons to be feet High and then had lost a number of feet of its top during a storm. It measures 10 feet in circumference at the base. Oui Elm does not Pread As the Corydon Elm for the reason that other grand old Trees surround it. After the tree surgeons had treated the tree a galvanized tin was made to do double duty protect the ree and make a Home for the Squir Els. Last year when viewed by Dean Stanley Coulter of Purdue University he judged the tree was Over a a Oil year old. Last summer during a storm another t ration of the tree broke off and in such a Way it Beanie necessary to Cut Ai Ross the trunk id feet above the ground. At this height the distinct annual layers that could be counted numbered -4l showing that since the tree had obtained this height it has lived almost two centuries and a half. Quite Lurar this old Elm is a Catalpa Specioso 8 feet in circumference that is the Best specimen of this variety in this part of the country. Elmhurst has one of he finest beeches in the state of stately Beech Trees. A tree that measures a i feet around tiie base where its sii Reading roots Rise above quot the ground quot and nearly ten feet iii circumference where its trunk rises straight to the skies Uki feet. Another tree proclaimed by Dean Coulter As a perfect Type of the a Merit an Elm is a Century old and measures 10 al feet in circumference. From the porch of this historic mansion no less than "21 variety of Trees May be counted. The greater portion of them As old and older than our state. When the i property passed to the ownership of .

Recently it was transferred by the heir of the late George b. Markle to George Ansted and b. F. Thiebaud. There has never been a building upon that part of tie ground. Years ago it was used for a Garden. No More fitting place in our City could be found for the opening of our Centennial than this Corner.

Know More about manufacturing we have put this knowledge into work and the result of course must be a better car at a lower Price quot and not Only has this knowledge been applied to the production work but to the buying of materials As Well. The Cost of materials in a motor car is one of the big items to con Sider and no manufacturing concern is making real Progress until it learns to buy materials economically in our Case we used our foresight to Good advantage placing orders for a Large Quantity of steels and other essentials before the real High War prices went into effect. Quot it is indeed interesting to study the development of the motor car Industry during the past few years what the manufacturers knew just a few years ago was almost a negligible Quantity compared to today. In no other Industry has such Progress been made simply because there has not been such close research Worl such close application to the Solu tion of the problems which have had to be solved. Quot we have eliminated the barriers which kept prices up for so Long because we went about the solution of the problem in a carefully planned thoroughly thought out manner. We have been working toward an end the culmination of our Ideal to produce a High Grade car at the lowest possible Price and we believe that we have just about reached the Point . Norris dead.
