Bryan one of the greatest men that the civilization of the world has ever produced Ancient Greece had her Demosthenes Pericles Plato and Aristotle the Romans had their Julius Caeser Cicero and Brutus the Hebrews Moses and Joshua King Solomon David and the other ancient kings the early Christians had the great Apostle Paul England had her Cromwell and although Ireland may be ground into the dust hy the tyranny of England the genius of her patriots has made her immor talher place among the nations of the earth has been fixed by men like Robert Emmet Daniel OConnell and Charles Stewart Parnell In our own magnificent country the greatest of them allwe have had such men as Hancock and the Adamses Patrick Henry Benjamin Franklin Thomas George Washington Abraham Lincoln but no one of these men ever surpassed the Great Commoner On the platform he has the dloqyence of Demosthenes and Wendell Phillips combined His very presence is an inspiration It would be a great event to look at him if he didnt speak a word He is the embodiment of the spirits of the ReyolutIon He has thyzeal of Patrick Henry the wisdom of Franklin the Democracy of Jefferson thecharhcter ot George Washington a- characteras wide as the earth and as high as the stars As Webster said of Massachusetts he needs no eulogy His life is an open book and the world knows it by heart powerbin American politics than that won by William Jennings Bryan By the strengtn ofjhis character and the righteousness of his cause he has compelled the admin istration to adopt his principles and discardiheirown He has educated thena

instead of war generosity instead of sharp dealing frankness instead of crafty diplomacy He stands for equal rignts to all men No other American since Washington has been so loved by the masses He has a greater personal following than any other man in the United States ever had save the Father of His Country Bryan is not only the acknowledged leader of his own political party not only the

as the name indicates The site of the town is quite level but one half mile west of the town is a large mound some 200 feet above the level of the surrounding country and in the distance it looks blue like your knobs and from it the town tooJits name This mound is quite picturesque and interesting The interior of the mound is lull of round stones sand and gravel and I am cu rious to know the cause of this great nvound in the center of this vast level country We are sure the prehistoric mound builders did not build it My guess is that when this great level country was all covered with water centuries ago that there was an un tfeaval from the bowels of the earth that cast up this great mound of small smooth stones and gravel and sand the Wabash road has part of this mound leased and is

4 The Republican Party Is On The Run Under oat of Chicago September 24 N Q Messenger special correspon dent of the Washington D C Star Ind Rep sent to his paper the fol lowing That davklookingj lowering cloud wjhich you see on the horizon upon ap preaching Chicago is not the smoke and gtime usually denoting the nearness of the windy city You will observe that there isan added grayness sullenness and gloominess which does not charact erize the everyday pall hanging over the city No dear friend what you see is the gloom settling over republican national headquarters But that rainbow above the mark Ah true there is a rainbow It signi fies Mry Taits personal entry into the campaign with a valise full of ginger He is on the job at last moich to the relief of the waitingrepubhcans who have chafed under the enforced restraint of aC mpaign which up to this tims has shown none of the force and fire which Mr Bryan has infused into his efforts f But to leave this idle figure of and get down to facts it is speechI denied that the republicans are in anxious state of mind at this time Things have not been coming their way in the past two weeks not by a long shot and t eYcannoJhelp but realize ItjUgly n a number of statjes are confronting the republicans and the present drift of affairs see ns to b0 against them This is not to say that they are ii a panije or that sort of thing It js not to predict what may be the conditi n veeberfeeling which may exist two weeks hencjs when Tatt and Hughes have stirred the west It is the purp seof thes dispatches to describe the condi tionsj as they exist for the time to call the cards as they fall and not to fore stall the cashin Thje fact remains that republican re ports of actual conditions in several states which ought tobe regarded as safely republican indicate that the re publicans will have to make a fight and i mighty competent strenuous and skillful fight before they can claim the states unless they would be like the man who heats himself in playing soli tairp Here in ChicagoYou get hold of the strings which lead into a number of these middle west states and as a spidjer in the center of the web feel the vibrations from the outermost rings I i The buzzing does not sound good to therepublicans I1here is Indiana Well if you get an honest avowal for publication from the republican mana ger s in that state it probably would be that Indiana is already in the discard that as indications now point the state is framed up to go Democratic on the state ticket and that Taft will have to fight and fight hard for the electoral vote There is Illinois the state torn with local factional troubles thelabor vote in doubt the negro vote vacillating apathy ruling among farmers and business men and a general state of dissatisfaction hard to particularize butj regarded as inimical to republican profepects at this time mind you There is Ohio Well about Ohio one repub bCof prominence in the state said to metoday The situation in Ohio is justi about as bad as it could be How eve that statement coming from the particular person in question should be taken with a grain 6f saltsince he deakjingundijly discouraged But frojn other sourjces comes the information that the te is sullen and secretive that laborYO is against the republicans salvation may be found in the great farmer vote WhtChIS inclined to be in the main republican The natural deduction is that Ohio is a doubtful stat the result depending upon the relative of thefarmr vote to the labor disaffection and at this stage no one can frame a definite prediction There is West Virginia The repub licans who talk honestly but not for quotation summarize the situation in one word rotten There is Mary land The best indication of the repub lican feeling is the fact that the mana gers have scheduled Governur Hughes for number of speeches beginning at Cumberland and ending at Baltimore This was announced today For weeks the republicans counted Maryland as a sure republican state They now cO- nsider the state as re counted in the Taft coin 1nINebraska and Kansas son bly and honestly counted upon by either party at this time for the reason that the voters have not lit The issue of bank guaranty is a burning questtonyet to be solved The electo rate is said to be undecided and the re publican campaign is surely undecided upon thissource- Iowa has been regarded as safely re publican by a reduced plurality and it was something of a surprise when the Iowa folk demanded that Mr Taft should alter his schedule to make a speejch in that state However it is only frank to state that the best repub lican judgment is that Iowa is for Taft anydemocratication to offset thisvrew anxietyIso much a specification ofparticular- cases of dissatisfaction but the general trend of public opinion in the west is in favor of Bryan in favOr of a change and apathy towards all politics and all politicians This apathy of business men is very pronounced Up to this time it has not been possible to scare them about Bryans election They re tJuse to be alarmed They say that times are hard that they have been hurt as much as they can be and they dont really care very much who is elected They are not inclined to con tribute to campaign funds and that is regarded as a very bad sign Referring to the Messenger article and quoting it at length Colonel 0 0 Stealey Washington correspondent for the Louisville CourierJournal says Now I am quoting good republican authority I know that Messenger is too good a republican and stands too high in journalism at the capitol to falsify the political situation as he sizes it up If he did otherwise the republi can owners of the Star would not hesi tate to remove him That which he tells the people in his dispatches is the truth and nothing but the truth The republican party is today onthe run Our Sympathy is always extended to those in distress but ve have no sym pathy to wasteji oh the

prisoner who called the judge lfca fool The judge fined him 10 He paid the fine I but asked Do you fine people for thinking your Honor The judge answered in fhe negative Well he said ttI think youre a fool still If I should print my personal opinion of some big t advertisers like as not Id get fined but it isperfectly safe to think i If a traveler came to you and talked of the stuff which his house prints as advertising you would put him down at once as an idiot 1 The talk is unnatural t sounding brass and aItinkling cymbal unreal insincere dead The reader feels that it isnt the advertiser who is talking that there really isnt anybody talking that the words are just printing Good advertising is good talk the fr nk1io estIkind that convinces 1 An advertisement of one hundred words should make the reader think five thousand words and herein is the whole secret of good copy It isnt what you say that counts but the chain of thought which your advertising creates J V t The more you fuss over your advertising cop the I poorer the result It isnt a job to stutter about or to apologize for or to burn midnight oil ove If you want to make an advertising hit all you ned to do is to talk to the reader of the newspaper as you talk across the counter to a customer Two Irishmen chased a wildcat lip a tree Pat went up to shake him off while Mike remained below to catch him when he fell Both were successful but andatumble scrap below Pat called out Shall Oi come douwn an help you howld him Mike Nawl Begorra come douwn Pat ant help me let him go i Advertising is a Wildcat up a free Once you have shaken him off the problem of letting goi quite as difficult as the problem of howlding on But what you need in either case is nerve and a reasonable assurance regarding the future IliIt rarely pays to splurge Make your appropria Lion deliberately and carefully Prepare good copy Advertise continuously every day orat least every week Your store is the seed or the plant The advertising

A reader of a central Iowa paperIn which these notes appear regularly contributes to its column a very timely article touching the need of greater precaution with a view to preventing the spread of the quack grass pest He points out the danger vio sly emphasized in these notes of Allowing the grass to seed along highways fence rows anti in vacant lots because of the possibility of a subsequent spread of the seed In the form of litter or manure to gardens and farm lands in the vicinity He attributes the rapid spread of the grass in his own and other localities to the careless way in which hay is made of the roadside grasses after the quack grass is headed out the same being used on the farms of the abutting landowners or sold and fed put in other localities He asserts that the man who would set his barn afire is a gentleman compared with one who would knowingly sell him hay- conth1nlng cuacU grass seed As a result of ten years experience with the pest he recommends summer fallow lug bf the laUd that is Infested with the lass with disking as often any iof it shows head above ground asIdeep plowing of the land In the and the growing of corn theY next years with the leanest and most careful cultivation possible Even with this method tufts of the grass are like ly to be found at the roots of the corn in the fall of the second year when they should be dug up by hand root and all and burned He estimates that the value of land thoroughly Infested with quack grass is decreased one half The danger from the source indicated can hardly be overemphasized Every farmer should be keenly alive to the situation PRACTICAL FORESTRY Amjjng powerful agencies which are taking up the matter of forest planting and preservatibn in a practical and effective manner is the Pennsylvania railroad The demand for lumber to be used in the manufacture of freight cars bridges stations etc and for toh poles and railroad ties has beboa ie So great that this company one of thfvmost extensive In the country has mirehased farm lands which are used las nurseries for different vane ties of trees which are needed The company the pastsPring trn trees while its totarplantlngs to dlte including this years aggre gate 2500000 trees This years plant Ing ncluded 209000 imported seed lings which were placed In the com panys nursery at Morrisville Pa When railroad companies which are as a rule dominated by only the most mercenary consideration take such an Interest in the subject of forestry It ought to be a thought proVoker for many a farmer who is quite likely growing crops with Indifferent success on land that during a term of years would give him as large or a better revenue per acre If set out to trees WHAT SHE CRAVES While there may be now and then married women whose desires are satisfied If they have all the clothes they vant and a modest sum of spending moneji It is more then likely that = the let es of a great many are unhappy and cheerless for lack of love and ap preeiailon for the humdrum work ofm life 1hlch so many perform uncom r plaints gly When a woman goes as a bride 9 the marriage altar she dedi m cates her life to the happinesa and if welfare of her

reach of f the poorest yet are often unrealized g In the homes df the most wealthy e THE LEAK IN WEEDS i A great benefit resulting from early m tacking Is that it sheep properlyFm stubble and will devour and destroy no- T end of weeds thus keeping them from T maturing a big crop of seed Where resulthIf can bd attained by an early plowing of aboutmRI to seeUas well as mature other weed theTT leaks the average farm Is the an f anal loss sustained In the work of flghtlng weeds and in the toll which they take on the fertility of the soil Hence any method by which the w ed aulsance can be abated should be pushed vigorously and persistently Cantaloupe growers In portions of southern California report serious dam age to this years crop as a result of the devastation of the cantaloupe lice which have killed all the vines in cer tain sections In times of drought the work of wa tering the garden can often be most easily done by frequent and thorough cultivations or hoeings This keeps the surface mellow with the result that moisture in ample quantities IsIpumped up from the subsoil and available for the thirsty plants t In a recent Installment of these notes tansy was recommended as con sidered effective by some in driving ants from the foodcupboards While this may be true of the smaller black and red ants it Is not so of the large black variety which still raid the sugar box feeding on the sugar by day and roosting on the tansy at night It is a fair assumption that if the man enjoys and is refreshed by a drink of cool water in haying time and harvest his horses which usually work as hard as he take about the same view of the matter The careful driver will se that they get U of water once or twic between feeds during the hot djtys They will enjoy the water and work the better for it An even more toothsome dish than the fine peas and string beans from the family garden are the green lima beans when one has the good fortune to raise them Only a small per cent of the seed planted germinates and grows and this tends to discourage one in raising them But where plenof seed is planted the bushes given thorough hoeing and the weather being warm and favorable one will get enough of the big green pods to more than pay for the trouble Reports from the whole country show that the condition of the apple crop on July 1 was 576 per cent as compared with GG per emit on June 1 and 44 per cent on Julyl 1907 and 6 3 per cent the ten year average for JuV 1 This would seem to indicate that while this years crop is 136 cent better than It was last year perI nevertliele far enough below average so ns to insure n good price for all good fruit It will be well for the apple grower to keep the crop sit uation In mind when closing deals for the sale of his apples this fall iiThe laws in a number of states requiring the cutting of weeds along the roadsides y the abutting property owners or road supervisors specify July 15 and Aug 15 as the Interval In which this work should be done This is probably better than no regula tion at all simply from the standpoint of the looks of the road but tis a defective statute in that the seeds of most weeds and grasses are

amount of corn which Is grown every year The Crop Reporter for June seeks to an i saver this query Some of the statls t tics presented are of Interest In the year 1S99 when the total crop was

discovered 200 miles from the village of Kasachla The head and a part of one leg were exppsed through the action of the water and the foxes had berm to eat the flesh found ad the bones The remains of the matnmoth are to be transported over the first stages of the journey by fifty sleighs drawn reindeer Rus alan scientists are much Interested in the find because the specimen now on exhibition In the museum at St Peters burg Is believed not to hive reached image of more than twentyfive years These mammoths are thought to have lived about 100000 years ago The re mains of the first specimen discovered were In such a state of preservation that after being thawed salted and cooked portions of the flesh were actually eaten out of curiosity by some of the Russian scientists JOhr 1 A careful

stock and Ires and will mean extra dollars in the farmers and beekeepers pockett Careful investigations by the department of agriculture in southern cotton growing states show a considerable and very satisfactory decrease in the numbers of the cotton boll weevil which is by all odds the worst pest that the growers of this great staple have to contend with While the de crease in number of the insects may be due in part to causes not known a considerable portion of the change is thought to be due to the unfavorable weather last fall especially to the first early killing frost While the average father is greatly rejoiced over the return of the way ward son who has spent his substance In riotous living and perhaps kills the fatted calf for him it Is safe to say th the likewise rejoices a good deal on the quiet over the other son who stays by him through thick and thin milks the cows and helps in haying harvest and husking The younger son is perhaps a more open hearted fellow but he is a more useful mem ber of society ifhe cuts out gadding about the country and stays at home and helps the old man Those desirous of going into the poul try business often want to know just how much itcosts to keep a hen a year and what profit may be reasonably ex pected from the sale of eggs An ex- perIment conducted by the West Vir ginia station gives a definite answer to the above query Six hundred hens were kept through the year and it was found that the cost of feed per head was 89 cents while the total for feed and labor was 142 The average number of eggs was 113 valued at 243 which left a net profit of 101 for each hen or an In ome of 606 from the entire flock 1 L A recent report published by the Dominion dairy commissioner contains interesting figures

may long to be queenly In form and bearing but she will never realize on her expectations A farmer residing In the community In which the writer lives has a reputa tion for miles around for the uniformly good crops which ho raises This is especially true of his corn crops We learned the other day one of the secrets of his success At a time when other good farmers In the neighborhood had cultivated their fields of corn three or four times he had gone over lips seven times He deemed this necessary this year because of frequent driving heavy rains which packed the ground and caused it to bake in the sun The extra tending given this field of corn has already put it ahead from ten days to two weeks which insures a sound mid mature crop of corn even In case of an early killing frost A general characteristic of this mans management of his farm work Is that he Is as a rule forehanded with his work rather than behind with It and having it drive him This way cf doing makes work more

Raymond Bisgs a rich bachelor find big the weather oppressive In the city concluded to run down to the seashore He found there a bevy of girls the most of whom having worn themselves out during the gay social season in town were endeavoring to put the roses back Into their cheeks under the Influence of ocean breezes Neverthe less there was not one of them but could spare the time to secure Clan es tablishmentRaymond Riggs was a key to the wealth he possessed All a girl had to do to unlock the door to it was to snare him He had fought off a regiment of them during the previous season and had hoped for a rest at the seashore He was doomed to disappointment They attacked him by platoons and companies To get rid of them he went oirone day several miles up the beach and sat down on the sand The waves rolled lazIlyIn broke on a bar I and slid up on the sand with an effer vescing souncU The sky was blue and cloudless The ships out at sea sailed on as silently as If they were painted r instead of real It was all very restful and in marked contrast with being hunted down by a flock of women he should have said but he preferred the word harpies E A glass bottle was thrown up by the waves rolled about on thesand and carried out When It came up again Raymond noticed that it was corked He seized it took out the cork and with the blade of his knife managed to extricate through the narrow neck a card On It was written in pale ink Aline Eliot The address was given at a town a hundred miles down the coast then followed Dear finder I am lonely For heavens sake exclaimed Ray mond are all the women In the world hunting lovers I escape from a flock of them back on the shore only to be met by an advance from the ocean But as he gazed at this singular con trivance for mating as he regarded It it seemed far different to him froni the advances he had received from the fortune hunters He fancied the writer to be some innocent girl who raved only to obey the instincts mother nature had planted in her pure bosom Perhaps she had sat alone by yieldingtoand had sent out her message with blind confidence that it would fall into the hands of the man who was destined to be all In all to her Was this the explanation or was she too hunting for a fortune He would open a correspondence with her In thi way he could find out what he wishe- S o know He inclosed the card with his own name and address and the wordsIII too am lonely In a few days he received a letter There was nothing in It about love or marriage It was an unsophisticated epistle from a young r girl about nothing Raymond read be tween the lines Perhaps you are he for whom I intended my message But it did not say You may be some rascal who will take a mean advan of what I have done What retage freshing innocence Fancy one of the fortune hunters reposing such confidence in the average man Raymond was an imaginative fellow and would Bit long on the dunes or on the beach mentally contemplating this innocence If hocotiid see her likeness he could judge of her motive with more cer tainty He thought he would send a picture Df some man about his own age and ask hers in return but the girls guile lessness had affected him and he shrank oItidentthatclosed his photograph As SQPU as he had done so the thought occurred to him that he was a too The danger Df a s lety fortune hunter was until ttug beside one he had never seen pos i ssing letters from him and his photograph However iu exchange came a like ness It was the likeness of one a painrr would seize upon as a model- Cor a Madonna There was innocence personified A pair of soft eyes looked DUt from an oval face The lips were fietisativei and Raymond considered them especially kissable He thought j of the faces of the fortune hunters restored to their natural appearance by cosmetics There was none of them who would not consider herself flagrantly immodest to thus advertise for a husband Yet here was the Madonnalike face looking at him with e i modesty that none of these could have assumed One day Raymond was missed at the seashore There was a flutter among he fortune hunters for though nope s Df them had secured a foothold eviry one hoped for herself not for the oth srs Had he returned to the rltyNo Inquiries elicited the fact that his bag gage like our flag was still there So they waited and watched end bopqd But Rayrnoud did not return tn time he directed that his baggage be sent to the city and neither the waves nor the pulls nor the ships nor the fortune hunters saw him q1oreats least not that summer But the next summer all these savr tim again and sow a very different man He was no longer pursued by the harpies for his estate bad been preempted A slender oval faced wife t was with him whose presence hcpt i them all nta

the corps rules But in truth he did not relish even a friendly fight with the Englishman who was an avowed hater of Americans When the terms of the fight for the championship came to be arranged Horcut insisted on certain innovations rendering the affair dangerous It was suspected ra few that he considered Bancroft the better swordsman and judging him to be timid wished to force him to decline the combat This would give Horcut the championship without lighting for it or risking to lose It He would then return to Eng land to enjoy his honors Whether or no this was his object it was

that she was in a critical physical condition and if anything happened to him it would kill her Bancroft neither cared to give his true reason for not lighting nor be timed that it would be accepted
