It Is doubtful whether Lincoln ever
held a larger crowd than that which
enme to the city on this occasion. The
weather, barring the hear, was as near
ly perfect as It rould be, It was a
jiair Holiday la the city, and every
train from over the state arrived load

people, but many from nearby states.

for the home-coming, the fronts of
business houses being a mass of flag

districts lithographs of Itiynn in the

colors, were everywhere seen.

The Itryan train nrrived at the Bur
lington station shortly after !i p. m.
Two hours before that the crowd be-
pan assembling and was packed
around the station, on the platforms
of freight and express buildings, and
on the sidewalks and In the street for
nearly half a block away. There was

In and llryan appeared on the plat
form. Itryan's only expression as lie
looked down on the multitude of faces
was: "Great Scott! what a crowd."
Showing no sign of fatigue, but bow
ing right and left and smiling happily,
with an occasional word to an old
ncimnintniice, ltryau made his way to
the carriage, which took him to the
homo of Charles W. Itryan, where he
had dinner and rested for awhile.

Outlier to Greet Itryan.
Two hours before the time for the
exercises at the capltol grounds a
crowd estimated all the way from IIO,
(HiO to U,OnO struggled for points of
vantage around the speaker's stand.
P.ryan was escorted to the stand by
Governor Mickey from his private of
fice in tho Htate house. A prayer by
Rev. George W. Martin, pastor of the
Methodist church at Normal, liryan's
suburban home, was followed by a
brief speech of welcome by Mayor

n statesman, not ns a Democrat, but
ns that dearest to us all, our beloved
Governor Mickey's welcome was
warm and hearty, and declared that
not Lincoln but the entire common
wealth Joined In the welcome. He con
cluded in n humorous strain, saylns
that, speaking from n standpoint of n
Republican party man, llryan had
caused him a good deal of uneasiness
in the past, and had shown strong
symptoms of continuing to do so in
the future, but whatever he ndvocated
the governor was satisfied Itryan in
tended for the right.
As Governor Mickey concluded and
Rrynn arose there was renewed cheer
ing and handclappiug. Itryan began
by saying that lu his travels he had
learned that the Arabic language con
tained 000 words meaning camel, and
since returning to the United States he
ihad tv'shed that the English language
contained ns many words meaning "I
thank you." He declared the happiest
part of tho long Journey was the home
coming, and then went Into a general
description of his travels.
following Itryan's speech, the formal
reception took place lu the corridors
of the capltol, In which Itryan shook
hands with the thousands who passed
before 111 in. There was a brilliant dis
play of fireworks for an hour on the

Quick and Unusual Death of a Horse.
Tuesday Dr. W. I. Jones was
called to the barn of Joe Fitzgerald to
give some medicine to a sick horse,

feed that might produce colic. The
horse did not seem to be suffering very
much and the usual medicine for such
cases was given. A few hours later
the horse died. Joe Fitzgerald says
the post mortem examination showed
that the death was produced by the

pleased with tho work of the confer

might congratulate himself ou the
splendid results. He said:
We Americans may flutter ourselves

forth at tho conference at Brussels by
the American delegates were ratified
at London. The first proposition pro

The second proposition provided for an

lar intervals, probably at The Hague.
"When tho proposition Mas submit

to be too far-reaching for Europe. The
propositions were referred to commis

Do J"i; remember t lie great rejoic

of tho country?
Do you remember the great rejoic
ing It caused? It meant closer con
nection with the outside world. That
was Important, but It meant a great
deal more. We were to have a town
that would afford a convenient mar
ket for our products. It would bring
to our doors schools, newspapers,
churches, stores and social life. It
would increase the value of our land.
Celebrations were held, speeches
were made and everybody welcomed
the new and prospcrousera that would
come with the new town.
That was years ago. The town
started and grew. As you fondly
hoped the schools, churches, news
papers, stores, came with ic. Your
land then worth ten dollars an acre Is
now worth fifty to one hundred dol
lars. Not one of your reasonable ex
pectations has failed. You wanted
the town, you worked to get It, worked
to make It what It Is It's your town.
Lately there has been a change.
Why Is it? Isn't the town just as es
sential as ever? Isn't a convenient
market for produce just as desirable
as ever? Are not schools, churches,
etc., as important as ever?

are a dirty set in the fullest sense of
the term. They have taken jack
knives and completely riddled the
mattresses upon the beds, and even
broken up dishes that their meals
were placed upon, and we understand
that they are now compelled to cat
