TH E idea of using the Edison Bryan-
Records for campaign purposes is as
novel as it will prove effective.
William Jennings Bryan has made for the
Natio' al Phonograph Company ten excellent ,
Records which not only present his ideas, but
also give his voice and inflections in speakir g them.
Any Democratic Club can buy. an Edison
Phonograph and a set of these ten Records in
its own town and give daily renditions of
Bryan's speeches, by means of these remarkably
faithful Records. This is an idea that ought
to bear fruit both from its novelty and the merits,
of the Records themselves.

Here is an extract from the pros
pectus of a hotel in Switzerland:
"Weissbaoh is the favorite place
of resort for those who are fond of
solitude. Persons in search of soli
tude are, in fact, constantly flocking

Mexico, and I was at Monterey and
with Taylor in, all his fights.'
"Have you been in Texas since
then?" inquired Mr. Bryan.
"Yes, just after
"Then you've seen Its modern de
velopment," said Mr. Bryan, who is
more interested in agriculture and
commerce than in war. "You've had
a chance to compare.
"Yes, but T wanted ,to see the
old battle fields more than I did the
commercial growth of the state," in
ter nted Mr. Morrison.
"Whore were you in Ihe civil
war?" asked Mr. Bryan.
In the Civil War, Likewise
"I enlisted for ninety days in the
First Michignn, and was in the first
Bull Run. Then I enlisted in the
Twontv-second Michigan, and
marched with Sherman to Atlanta.
When we got there our regiment was
sent up to .ioin Thorn ns in taking
care of Hood at Nashville. I was
provoked at having to quit Sher
man's army, but I tldn't have any
renson to regret it. Tliomas ful
filled the contract and took care of
Hood, but Hood was never gentle
man enough to thank us for it,"
concluded the veteran with a grim
Mr. Bryan lauehed. "How long
have you lived in Wyoming?" he
"Growing Up" at Ninoty-two
"Three years," said Mr. Morrison.
"In 1005, when I was ninety-two
vears old, I got tired of living in
Michigan, and I decided that T would
go west and grow up with the coun
try." I sprung the idea on ten fam
ilies of mv relatives who were liv
ing nea.r Grand. Rapids, and thev
took . it on my say-so and we all
moved out to Wyoming. We have
a little community of our own,
tweiity'ght miles from Rherldnn,
which is "the nearest railway sta
tion," ."How mnnv children have you?"
asked Mr. Bryan. ..
"Rtaht." be said; "six- girls and
two boys. One of my boys is sixty
seven years old."
"Grandchildren?" suggested Mr.
"I'd have to count 'em," said Mr.
Morrison, hesitating. ,
"Are you raising cattle?" asked
"Nn. just farming," was the replv.
"Did vou ever see Santa Anna?"
asked Mr. Brvan.
"I did," said Mr. Morrison, "and
T was one of (hose who lust missed
making him prisoner. He left his
wooden leg as a souvenir."
Mr. Bryan reverted again to the
wonderful inventions that had come
about in Mr, Morrison's time, and
spoke about the railroads and steam
"Why." interjected Mr. Morrison,
"when De Witt Clinton started his
Erie canal project my father said
that he would be glad if his son,
meaning me, could live to be old
enough to see that canal finished."
Then they talked some more about
Jackson, and Mr. Morrison again re
verted to his iron will and strong
Stow About Jackson and Heaven
"That reminds me," said Mr.
Brvan, "that when I was at the
Hermitage I was told that an old
negro was still living who had been
employed in Jackson's family. Some
one asked him, shortly before I
got there, if he believed Jackson, had
gone to heaven.
" 'Well,' he replied, 'if he set his
head that way he did.' "
Then he asked Mr. Morrison to
come in and see his supply of canes
and -took him through the house and
showed him all the trophies ho had
brought from abroad. Meanwhile
ho had ordered his carriage mado
ready, and when the old man was
ready to, go Mr... Bryan drove him
down to the station. The political
visitors were still waiting. They had
to wait until Mr. Bryan got back.
