AVe copy the following
article from the Springvie\v
Herald , a republican paper
Though the writer intended
to mildly criticise Mr. Bry
an he recognixed in him the
most charming personality
of any pu-blic man in Ameri
ca , that lie enjoys the esteem
of all Americans , aside from
politics. 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. He is a great man ,
yet he is a common man
will talk to you just as oth
er men. hence his name ,
'The Great Commoner , "
las often been applied to
ijm. He has stood before
dngs. Has delighted mil-
ions of intelligent people
all over the world.
He's coming here and you
ought to lay all bitter feei
ng aside and come and see
rim. Bring the women and
children. They ought to
see and hear him. They
nay never again have such
an opportunity. The chil
dren will read about him
when they are old and tell
of 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 :
( 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.

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. '
