Dec. lit.—President­ elect Taft last night announced the appointment of I'. S. Senator Pliilan- der C. Knox, of Pennsylvania, as secro tary of the state in his cabinet. The announcement followed th.?.receipt by Mr. Taft of a telegram conveying the information from Mr. Knox that he would accept the pre.i-.iejshiii of the Taft cabinet. Mr. Taft without delay announced that the matter was settled, lie said ^ the offer was made to .Mr. Knox last / Sunday, in New York, and that since the offer he had not heard from .Mr. Knox until today's teleRrani. After a consultation with Secretary Hoot in \V!ashlngton Saturday. Mr. Taft said he tried to see Senator Knox theie but was informed that he was in .New York to attend the dinner of the Pennsylvania society. . He wired .Mr. Knox to see him at the H. \V. Taft residence Sunday morning. "I feel that I am to he congratulated in securing the services of Senator Knox in my cabinet." .said .Mr. Taft, in making the announcement. In selecting a secretary of state I wanted first a great lawyer, and second, a man who would fill the public eye. not only here but abroad, as a man who - stands out supremely as a ^.'reat .^nier- ican. Senator Knox, whip .Miorney (;en- eral, established a high record for his relentless prosecution of so-called trusts. One of his iniiHjrtant victories was the suit against the Northern Securities company organized to take over Ihe capital stock of the Northern Pacific and Great Northern railroads. The government won its cause In the United States case. m iiC0UNCII,BLUPF5 IOWA ••••••••••iiMli lis COBS SOUTH STATE'LINE OHAHOMA line the CDiiiieiting link of the two cities, also within eight blocks of the. .Vaiaiiirliiin and famous Silurian Springs, and Drowti's (Jreat Pleasurt; I 'livK. wlildi is recognized as the greatest park In the Southwest, noteil for :-• |iUv:lio !is, golf links, tennis courts, lagoons and excellent boating, :•] a::ii i.iir ili.or swimming pools and l/eatitifu! drives.

There is always a superfluity of cheap Jight-weight silver, and a scarcity of pictures among presents. A picture is never used up. never thrown aside, but is always a pleasant reminder. And pictures are n')t always costly. A good subject, Iramed appropri itely and tastefully, may be had for the price of an undesirable and cheap piece of glass or silver.
