all. He is the living image of William

a delegate to the Elks convention. He

lodges in all parts of tho country. They
are now on exhibition in tho show win
dows of the Famous clothing store.
Mr, Cogswell received several flowery
notices from the Dallas papers, one of
which is the following which we repub
lish from the Dallas Daily News:
"P. H. Cogswell of Alliance, Neb.,
is attending the convention as a dele
gate. He says confidently that he is
the only delegate from the home state '
of William Jennings Bryan, and hu
sajs also that Mr. Bryan will be the
next president of the United States.
He ran across J. C. McNealus last
night as Mr. McNealus was about to
to take a car for his home after his re
turn from the national Democratic
convention. He tried to trade Mr.
McNealus an Elk badge for the lattcr's
delegate badge to Denver, but Mr, Mc
Nealus could not be cajoled into mak
ing the trade.
"You are from Nebraska," said the
secretary of delegation, "and that is
enough honor for one man."
Then Mr. Cogswell tried to persuade
Mr. McNealus to turn over to the Elks
the Texas standard, about fifteen feet
in length, made of brass and surmount
ed with a big board labeled "Toxas."
Mr. McNealus said the Elks could
have anything he possessed, but that Jfi
he would take the standard home and
fix it up a little, as some of the screws
were loose after the storm through
which it passed."
Has Narrow Escape
Everett Johnson, an employe of the
telephone company as lineman, had a
narrow escape from electrocution by
coming in contact with a "live" wire
on the pole on which he was working
last Monday evening in the west part
of the city. (ohnson's foot slipped
and in his attempt to save himself he
caught hold of the wire charged with
electricity. The shock was so great
that he was rendered unconscious for a
short time. Vem Dutidas, who was
helping Johnson, attempted to rescue
him but was thrown to the ground. He
made a second attempt to lower John
son and succeeded after quite anef
fort. With the help of assistance the
unconscious man was removed to a
house near by and soon recovered suffi
cient enough to be taket. to his home.
His hands were quite badly burned
and he was otherwise injured. How
ever his injuries were not of a serious
nature and will soon recover.
