Our Lincoln Letter.
Lincoln , Neb. , August ( Special
Correspondence. ) Mr. Bryan arrived -
-rived home in Lincoln on Friday
evening , August 28 , after a short
speaking tour. Following his prom-
is ? , made in his speech of accep
tance , to discuss the issues of the
compaign more in detail at other
times , he spoke on the tarriff ques
tion at Des Moineson the trust
question at Indianapolis , where he
attended the notification of John
W. Kern , and on the bank guaran
tee question at Topeka. He left
on Sunday , August 30 , for St. Paul
where he spoke on Monday. Re
turning to Lincoln , he spoke at the
Nebraska State Fair on Thursday.
On Labor Day he will deliver the
address at the Labor Day demon
stration at Sportsmen's Park , Chicago
cage , given under the auspices of
the Chicago Trades and Labor
Assembly. It is presumed that
on this occasion Mr. Bryan will
have something to say concerning
the injunction question.
Coming through Kansas City
last Friday , Mr. Bryan met with
an experience that made him "take
notice" for a few minutes ,
which resulted in great joy to a
Pullman porter. Mr. Bryan went
to a hotel to consult with friends
between trains , and when he en
tered the cafe he discovered that
bis pocketbook was gone. Mayor
Crittenden assured him that he
would be provided with enough
money to get oub of town , "We
having an emergency fund for
such purposes , " concluded the
mayor. In the meanwhile it was
thought best to inquire if the purse
had' been left on the Pullman.
During this time a Pullman porter
was watching with bulging eyes a
big pocketbook he had found in a
berth. He reported the find to the
onductor , who notified the office.
Just about that time the offiice re-
eived notice of a loss. When
Mr. Bryan went t % the depot the
Pullman conductor was there with
the purse. The porter was also
present. With much ceremony
the conductor handed the purse to
the porter , and the porter handed
it to Mr. Bryant Mr. Bryan
thanked the grinning porter and
landed him a bill of generous
"Mr. Bryan am sho' a powahful
5ne gem'men an quite lib'alsah , "
said the porter to a newspaper
That's all that anyone save Mr.
Bryan and the porter knows about
the size of the reward.
Naturally enough things politij
al have been comparatively quiet
in Lincoln during Mr. Bryan's ab
sence. Minnamascot , the demo-
ratic mule , ha's been remembered
landsomely , however , during the
master's absence. A huge bale of
Texas alfalfa arrived last week
from the Forney , Texas , Bryan
and Kern club.
Mention was made in a recent
etter of a 51-pound Oklahoma
watermelon sent to Mr. Bryan.
Last week one came from Mis
souri that made the Oklahoma
melon look small. The Missouri
melon tipped the beam at 70A-
The first thing Mr. Bryan did
on arriving at Fairview was to go
out and look at the windmill that
was struck by lightning while he
was gone. Mr. Bryan was in Topeka -
peka when informed of the inci
dent and smillingly said :
"Ive been waiting a long time for
lightning to strike in my vicinity ,
and that's getting pretty close. "
From one of the newspaper cor
respondents who accompanied Mr.
Bryan on his trip it is leatned that
everything looks promising , and
presidential candidate is confi-
Education is advancement. Not only along the lines of science
and learning , but in material things things we eat and wear. Take
shoes for example. Some firms are further advanced in the educa
tion of making-shoes than others , as some \rnen are more advanced in
learning than others. Thus the makers of "EDUCATOR" shoes
have reached nearer perfection in children's shoes than other mak
ers. "EDUCATOR" shoes are strong and durable , and yet the
easiest on the child's foot , for the simple reason that , they are shaped
as the foot ; therefore letting nature take her course and the foot
grow as it should. "EDUCATOR" shoes are educated more , than
other shoes. Ask to see them.

dent of the outcome. More than
ever before is attention being giv
en to the work of organization ,
and the men in charge of head
quarters at Chicago express aston
ishment at Mr. Bryan's genius
for organization and detail.
Why , he seemed to have his
finger on every detail , and to have
already planned everything we
had outlined and ready to submit
to him , " said a member of the
national committee. "He amazed
us all by his knowledge of condi
tions and his ability to seize every
honest advantage. "
John H. At wood , who has charge
of the , speaker's bureau of the
national committeeis very anxious
to secure the name and address of
every man who is willing to volun
teer in the speaking campaign that
will be pushed with vigor till
election aay. The calls for
speakers are being answered as
rapidly as possible , and the volun
teers are coming forward every
day. But an encouraging sign is
that the committee is as yet unable
to comply with all the requests
for speakers at democratic rallies.
Volunteers are requested to com
municate with Mr. Atwood , ad

Auditorium Annax , Chicago.
John W. Tomlinson is chairman
of the committee on cfub organi
zation of the democratic committee
and is anxious to get into com
munication with every democratic
club that is organized. The com
mittee is endeavoring to secure the
organization of a club in every
voting precinct , and get the names
of the officials and members.
Clubs that have not yet reported
are urged to do seat once , and
new clubs organized in the future
are urged to report without delay.
One of the tasks of the writer of
this letter is to go through a huge
bunch of exchanges newspapers ,
daily and weekly , that come from
every section of the United States.
It is interesting to note some facts
in this connection. There is a
hollow sound to the claims of cocksureness -
sureness made by the hide-bound
republican press , and a note of
optimism in the democratic press
that is most encoui aging. The
independent press is treating the
democratic candidate with unex
pected fairness , and the ppess re
ports no longer are tinged with
prejudice. Personal abuse of Mr.
Bryan is almost entirely lacking ,
and the opposition press is forced i
by an intelligent public todicuFs' '
the issues presented instead of
dealing in billingsgate. The dis
affection of the Baltimore Sun has
