The nearer Taft's nomination

It begins to look as if Roosevelt him

They want to hold onto the offices, but
they are not so sure of doing so with
Taft as they are with Roosevelt. Any

We are wondering what the republi

to connect Mr. Bryan's good name.
They have about worn out the $15,000
proposition. His character as a mar. is
so spotless that it will Lehard for them
to accomplish the feat. But they will
stir up something, that, after a few
tirades, will drop as flat ?s a pancake.
Come on. bi-ys.
Tii people of Lincoln are now ex
periencing a taste of the fiood, for which
the State Journal has been poking fun
at Plattsmouth for a like misfortune.
The only differer.ee between Lincoln
and Plattsmouth is, the water soon dis
appears from the streets of this city,
while in the state capitol it remains for
a good length of time. Take your med
icine, Air. Journal, but don't throw any
more slurs on Plattsmouth when another
riooa visits us, tor you will have no
more room to talk.
The republican national platform has
been written just as it is to be adopted
by the Chicago convention, and while
the exact phraseology of the document
has not been learned, it has been defin
itely ascertained that it will declare
unequivocally for tariff revision and
stop right there. As to how the tariff

the republican platform will not say one
word. It will declare that the republi
can party has an abiding faith in a re
publican congress, and that the republi
can congress can be depended upon to
revise the tariff.
Boom: lioomi: Boom!:! Do you
hear that? That's the way the people
of Plattsmouth will be aroused from
tbir peacefull slumbers on the morn
ing the Fourth of July, 190S. The
streets and buildings will be gaily dec
orated at an early hour to be in redines3
for the thousands of people who will be
here to witnes3 one of the greatest cel
ebrations in the history o&the old town.
Everybody is pushing the celebration.
As soon as the program is announced
you will see that we will have more to
entertain the visitors than ever before.
All the committees are working like
bees in the hive, and there is no such
word as failure with any of them.

"for official patronage, only."
There is but little U3e in holding a re
publican convention at Chicago. The
leaders have already "fixed things" for
either Taft or Roosevelt it is just as
liable to be one as the other. Taft
would be thrown to the rear on the first
jump if Roosevelt makes up his mind he
wants to run again. So far as any other
candidates are concerned the grafters
have everything all cut and dried the
way Teddy want3 it. Biliy will serve
the purpose, with Teddy in the back
ground to urge him onward to carry out
his centralization policy.
The attempt of the defamers to do
W. J. Bryan an injury, has fallen to the
ground like a bird shot in the air falls,
when clipped by the hunter's gun. They
first tried Governor Johnson to beat
lim, then the $20,000 campaign fund,
and the Lcrd only knows what they will
resort to next. But come on, boys, W.

he always naiU a lie to a sign-board
where the public can sae and read.
Since the Kansas City Times fell into
the hands of W. R. Nelson of the even

publican paper. Let this be as it may,
the editor has sufficient manhood to say
some things about right, anyway. In

square man. The New York financiers

The democrats of Nebraska should
ponder well in their selection of their
candidate for governor. A man who
has never had any connection with either
the Berge or Shallenherger factions can
follow Mr. Bryan on to victory in th
state. Any other man tor governor

MR. SAMUEL A. SEAL., Route 2,
Treadway, Tenn., writes:
"It gives me great pleasure to testify
to the great good your med iclne, Peruna,
has done for me in a chronic ca.se of
catarrh of the stomach. I was confined
to my bed for some time, and could not
sit up. I had tried everything that I
could find recommended for catarrh,
without any benefit. I tried the best
physicians in Hancock County, with
little or no benefit. 1 then tried two of
the best physicians in Hawkins County,
and found they were doing me no good.
I was gradually growing worse.
"Then a friend of mine, passing by,
handed me one of your pamphlets, and
seeing how Peruna was recommended
for catarrh, 1 sent to Rogersville,
Tennessee, next morning, a distance of
about fifteen miles, and procured some
of your Peruna, and began taking same
according to directions, and after taking
it n few days I began to get better.
"I continued using it until I was able
to go to work on the farm again, and
now I am in very good health and do
work on my farm.
