Don't Get Personal.
Andy Luke of Hampton , Iowa , i
arrived in our city last Friday and i
will play ball with our local sports
this season. I
The first game will be played \
this afternoon with Ainsworth. A
Our boys expect to do 'em and it
will be a warm game. If Ains-
worth wins we will take our de
feat like a general and try to beat
'cm some other time.
But we would like to suggest to
our boys that they discourage any
uncomplimentary remarks passed
by the onlookers that would sound
discourteous to your guests.
Gentlemanly enthusiasm should be a
suflicient , and your honor does not
all lie in the winning of a game.
Our baseball boys are very
courteous themselves , but , some
times , the rooters are unthought-
ful and say unkind things , though ,
perhaps , unintentional , and more
because of enthusiasm for our

some this season and we want to
be nice about it too.
But don't forget to play ball.
The eyes of the people are upon

William Jennings Bryan.
This distinguished American
citizen will be here on the evening
of May 30 , and address our peep le.
He is a Nebraskan who has won
honor and fame for himself and
brought both to his adopted state.
He came to Nebraska twenty
years , unknown and poor. In
the i two decades he has made his
name i known and his power felt in
every < land of civilization and has
made J money enough to keep him
self and family in comfort all the
rest of their days.
And a saving grace about it all
is that he has never made a dollar
Whatever differences there may
be I between us politically , the man
who is honest himself , must ac
cord honesty to William Jennings
And whatever differences there
may be along views of state craft ,
everyone must acknowledge that
he has been a pioneer in the great
work of reform that is now sweep
ing over the country. He has
had 1 his vagaries , but who has not ?
lie J has outgrown many of them
and today , if he could be persuad
ed to enlist , would be a worthy
member in the ranks of progress
No matter whether he is ever
president or not , his name and his
work will live. He will live along
with Daniel Webster , Henry Clay ,
James Gr. Blaine , Wm. H , Seward ,
Stephen A. Doughs and other
distinguished Americans who fail
ed to reach the heighth of their
ambition , but who , perhaps , left a
greater heritage behind than if
they had succeeded in that aim.
A mass meeting of our citizens
has been called for the evening of
May 2 , at the court house to make !
arrangements for his reception.
Although the call for this meeting
is signed by Judge Potter and E.
Osborn , chairman and secretary of
the Democratic County Central |
committee , we are assured that it
is not to be a partisan meeting.
The call says : ktAll citizens , with
out regard to party adiliations who j
wish to assist in extending a core ? |
ial welcome to Col. Bryan are' 1
most earnestly requested to bej
present. " J
That is proper. There should
be a good turn out and there
will , and plans should be made to
give our distinguished fellow citi
zen such a non-partisan rpception
as will be a credit to our town and
county. Ainsworth Star-Journal.
Mr. Bryan will be at Valoniine
all day Sunday , May uJ , and will
make a non-political speech in the
afternoon. Come to town and
spend the day with the great Xe-
