Head the article and get better acquainted with the man who will speak to us May 31st , on Sunday. Come to see him and hear him.

Y\Te hope to make roomer or all who come and we want you to come. Let the town fill up with people and ome the day before. Borne nay want to * go down to Ainsworth to hear him the right before and return on the train with Mr. Bryan. Let us meet him here , and don't forget to bring the boys and girls and the moth er who don't get away from home often. The above mentioned arti cle follows : BRYAN OF NEBRASKA. ( From the Springvicw Herald Kei.ublu- in politics. ) There are 7.000,000 or 8,000,000 American voters who would like to see Mr. Bryan president and who will never say die. These are fond of quoting an old and fa miliar [ motto , fondly known of all boys , which runs to the effect that "the third time is the charm. " His enemies regard this as the merest superstition and unfeeling- ing respond with an adage equally celebrated , derived from the American game , "Three strikes and out. " Aside from all bandinage , Wil liam J. Bryan of Nebraska , not of Florida , has about the most charming personality of any pub lic man in America. Magnetic , witty , transparently sincere , with out a grain of malice in his make up , unpretentious and democratic , never giving away to anger and withal absolutely clean in his pri vate and public life , he is as a man an honor to that Americanism of which he is so typical a product. One of the most admirable things about him is that he meets defeat without bitterness and bears abuse without resentment. It is the same quality in him that makes him so thoroughly enjoy a joke at his own expense. This Bryan the man apart from the politician enjoys the esteem of all Americans. Even when they abuse his policies or ridicule his "paramount" i.-bues they yet feel a certain secret pride in his genius and his character. Fortu nately mere party lines mean less and less in this country and man- To save a half doJIar on a fifty = cent purchase ? It dent take any brains to see that it does. Now , this is what we are doing. Saving you fifty cersts on a half dollar purchase on Men's Work Gloves , CalfJSkin and Seamless Thumb , Regular price $ ! .00 = = = Our price 50c. Another very attractive offer of interest to ladies is white * - bSeached muslin , regular 36 = inch width , which we are offering for 10 days at 7c yer yard. En addition to these very low prices we give trading stamps with every iOc purchase. Why not save your money ? Watch our windows. hood means more and more. Bry an has manhood , and of a high type at that , a fact which all other real men are ready cheerfully to affirm. Whether he is ever presi dent or not , he has won a place in the world's heart. After all , that may be a better and more endur ing title to fame than the holding of any office whatsoever. The Orator of Lincoln. Bryan's enemies and they are almost wholly political , not per sonal charge that he is superficial ; that he talks too much ; that ke -runs for office too often. They alliteratively allude to him as th < i peerless , the peripatetic and the perennial. But they never have said that he lacks sincerity , candor or honesty. They assert ho i a failure at everything he under took , but he certainly is not a fail- * urc iu gaining the ailVctionato re gards of millions of his own coun trymen and other millions the world around. Measured merely by the world's standards of win ning place or "dollars , most phi losophers and orators and all poets have been failures. Yet they shaped the thoughts and glad dened the hearts of th < i ages. Bry an may not quite measure up to the school of the penniless im mortals , for one thing because he is far from being penniless him self , yet he has some of the quali ties that wear well with the future. Liberty , democracy , righteous ness , are waxing not waning , and Bryan has never failed to strike these chords. Peace and brother hood are very endurable senti ments , and he has lost no oppor tunity to extol both. The doc trines of the gentle Xazarene are about the most permanent things in this world , and the Nebraskan's voice has never been silent in their praise. The "man above the del lar" slogan is bound to grow more popular as the world becomes more humanitarian , and the orator j of Lincoln has seldom neglected to' lift his voice in that behalf. Not a Sidestepper. There is little heard any more ! of Bryan being a demagogue , i Americans are fair minded , and j they have seen that charge to be | untrue. To this people truth i ' more than factional dili'erence , a J square deal is higher than parti- sanism. Selfishness ever charges altruism with being a demagogue. It merely measures a sentiment it does not understand by one that it dues. It is hard to convince a grafter that there is such a thing1 as disinterested public spirit. I There even corruptionists who say j that every man has his price. They are libelers of humanity.
