.; ,..-"' BRYAN STIItfj A POWER
The eagerness with ' which some
contemporaries, announce the decease
'of William J; Bryan is amusing,' If it
is- 'not particularly rational. Mr.
Bryan was opposed to the principle
of local option in his state because
he stood for county option, and coun
ty option was a . thing that he was
for because only through county op
tion could prohibition be obtained in
the cities which are situated in the
counties in his state. The point is
that the cities are, wet, so-called, and
the towns outside the citiea are usu
ally dry. It so happens that the
towns in a county together have more
votes than a city alone and can usu
ally defeat the city and force pro
hibition on it.
Mr. Bryan did his best to have the
democratic convention in his state de-
,clar.e in f,aypj of county option but

As It is Commonly Earned, Means
That Decaying Pood is Making Gas
This most serious condition Js very

stomach In cases of flatulency is un
able to digest the food properly., De

stomach', force' their way downward
into the bowels, and if not relieved
r it extenda upward pressing against
the lungs, liver" and Tiqart, causing
shortness of breath, -belching, foul
odors and many times sudden death.
Foods which are filled ,with gases,
when taken into a deranged stomach
cause flatulency rapidly, vegetables
being especially given to this qual
ity. Against such a. condition the
stomach" can do but little, "because
these foul and poisonous gases, affect
its glands, muscles and tissues to
such a degree as to incapacite.it al
most at once.
These gases distend the stomach in
all directions, preventing the con
tracting muscles from doing their
regular duties, or if they do force the
gas from tho stomach it goes else
where in the system with even more
harassing results, and.then. tha de-

The most effectivevme.thods jfof al
laying flatulency . is; t6 remove the
cause of gas making. An emetic will
do this but the stomach will have
the same trouble 'the moment new
food enters it. '
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets get "at
gas food at once, dige'st it, prevent
decay, quickly reduce food to nour
ishment, make eood rich gastric fluid
and pass thy digested food to the in
testines, giving the stomach Jts rest
and the system its nourishment. Flat

build up the stomach fluids so that
it matters not how inuch vegetables
you eat or food containing quantities
of gas, the stomach does its work
well and quickly.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold
everywhere and used the whole world
"over by sick stomachs and stomachs
that want to eat heartily and yet not
k get sick.

it refused to do so. Then the repub
lican convention did declare in favor
of it and he supported the republican
candidate, on thte issue alone wh eth
er to his credit or not, Ib for him to
decide on his conscience, as it would
be for any" other "public man. Ho
held it to be more Important for Ne
braska to elect a governor and legis
lature pledged to county option than
elect a democrat opposed to It and
he took his stand squarely. But to
say that Mr. Bryan has completely
lost caste with his party ceased to bo
anything of power in it on account
of his attitude on the liquor ques
tion this year, is surely to cherish a
mistake. . .
Mr. 'Bryan will not be the candi
date of his party, in 1912.; that, ap
pears to be settled. And both him
self and his intimates declare that he
has not thought of again being a
candidate, at least" not in that year.
But it may be considered as certain
that with a platform and candidate
fairfy satisfactory to him In 1912 Mr.
Bryan will be en the stump and prob
ably draw larger audiences than any
other, man pn his side during thedis-
cuoslon of that year, which is bound
to be, a memorable one. It is right
and proper that the idea's of a public
man should be opposed with force
and vigor by those who do not agree
with him, but it is equally true that
the genuine patriotism, recognized
menta.l power and high personal
character as among the valuable as--
sets of . the nation are appreciated, and
given fair treatment at least when
ever they are. discovered.
The " tendency under f ree govern
ment is 'toward personality in politi-:
cal affairs and the heat which "that
engenders during political contest.
ItkjwJll stanUto" Mr. Bryan's credit
when alMhings are summed, up with
regard to' him that he appealed to
the highest and the best that he
knew in his party and could never
be ' swerved from the line that
seemed to him clear as a matter of
principle, though disaster beyond
that which falls -to most men was
his fortune in politics. Buffalo (N.

AN OKLAHOMA OPINION
The democratic principles for
which the. Hon. William Jennings
Bryan has battled unceasingly for
more than fourteen years are now
coining into their own and are being
recognized all over the world as the
fundamental principles ot the demo
cratic party and democracy. Mr.
Bryan is their chief exponent, if
he. cannot lead the party to, presi
dential Victory on hem, then no man
can win the presidency on the demo-,
cratlc ticket advocating the teach
ings of Bryan or any other doctrine.
Either William Jennings Bryan will
be elected the democratic president
In 1912 or there will bo no demo
cratic president elected in that year.

It is said that President Taft has
told republican leaders that if they
do not approve tho Canadian reci
procity treaty ho will .call congress
in special session.
Tho democratic caucus adopted
resolutions endorsing tho Canadian
reciprocity treaty by a vote of 9 to
22, which was later made unanimous.
The resolution as adopted by tho
caucus follows: "Whereas the Ca
nadian reciprocity agreement nego
tiated by the reciprocity commission
of the Dominion of Canada and tho
president of the United States, while
not formulated in accordance with
democratic platform demands is a
reduction of the prohibitive schedr

adopted a resolution by Mr. Cantrill

should have at his disposal the in
formation of the production and
stocks on hand of agricultural pro
ducts and pledge ourselves to bring
about that end by legislation."
