BABY' HAIR ALL CAME OUT
"When my first baby was six months
old he broke out on his head with little
bumps. They would dry up and leave
a .scale. Then it would break out
again and it spread all over his head.
'All the hair came out and his head
was scaly all over. Then his face
broke out all over in red bumps and
it kept spreading until it was on his
hands and arms. I bought several
toxes of ointment , gave him blood
medicine , and had two doctors to treat
him , but he got worse all the time.
He had it about six months when a
friend told me about Cuticura. I sent
and got a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent ,
a cake of Cuticura Soap and a box of
Cuticura Ointment. In three days
after using them he began to im
prove. He began to take long naps
and to stop scratching his head. After
taking two bottles of Resolvent , two
boxes of Ointment and three cakes of
Soap he was sound and well , and never
Ihad any breaking out of any kind. His
Ihair came out in little curls all over
"his head. I don't think anything else
would have cured him except Cuti-
* ± have * bought Cuticura Ointment
mnd Cuticura Soap several times since
to use for cuts and sores and have

THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION
The republicans of the state in-conven
tion assembled at Lincoln Tuesday
seemed to be in control of the followers
and supporters of President Taft , who
held such supremacy that they could have
passed any resolutions they saw fit , but
who for the sake of harmony which was
not slojv In coming , contented themselves
with an endorsement of the administra
tion In no. uncertain terms and stopped
short of any reference to candidates for
office in the future. The opponents of the
president , active during the morning in
trying to secure some sort of a compro
mise which would not bring on a fight ,
listened to the reading of the laudatory
resolutions , some of them refusing to
agree with the sentiment , others rising
with the majority In endorsement of the
specific things the resolutions set forth
that President Taft had done. No men
tion was made of reciprocity.
By far the most extensive resolution
presented was that dealing with the presi
dent and his conduct as executive of the
nation. He was placed in the same cate
gory with several other republican presi
dents of the last half century , and espe
cial reference made to some of the things
he had done as president. The resolution
ended with the expression "and we heart
ily endorse his statesmanlike administra
tion. " Many of the insurgents saw in the
failure to mention his candidacy for a
second term a partial victory for them ,
took what was said as good enough and
when Chairman Jeffries called for a ris
ing vote in order to see how large the
majority for the administration was , not
more than thirty delegates sat in their
seats , refusing to join in the general har
Following are the resolutions :
"Rejoicing in the glorious record of the

policy of conservation of our national re
sources. He is prosecuting the illegal

fully claims credit , as also for the pro

republican law makers and the approval

for the blocking by executive veto of
vicious or purely partisan measures pro
posed solely for political effect.

THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION
Fremont , Neb. Nebraska's democracy
at its annual convention here Tuesday
adopted a vigorous platform without a
dissenting voice in the convention of SS6
delegates , made plans for its fight at the
coming election , elected a new state cen
tral committee with John C. Byrnes reelected -
elected as its chairman and Leo Matthews
re-elected as its secretary , heard demo
cratic addresses and sent its delegates
nome cheerful and In fighting trim
igainst the common enemy.
The- resolutions reaffirm the well known
ulneiples of democracy , warmly commend
the democratic congress for living up to
the democratic promises , and call atten
tion to the fact that republicans are also
believing In them , as shown by repub
lican support for Canadian reciprocity ;
warmly commend the last democratic
legislature and Its acts , particularly the ,
law which enables the election of dele
gates to national conventions by popular
vote and the preferential vote on presi
dential candidates ; and makes a stirring
appeal to the democrats and to the people
ple of Nebraska to fight for bipartisan
representation on three governmental
bodies to bo filled at the coming election
the supreme court , the board of univer
sity regents and the state railway com
The convention adjourned at 5:30 p. m.
What once promised to be one of the
most stormy state conventions that the
democrats of Nebraska have ever known
turned out to be harmonious and enthusi
astic. The democrat delegates from out
in the state were happily disappointed at
the pacific attitude of the Douglas county
delegation , and the Lancaster county del
egation was likewise apparently willing to
surrender all of Its pet ideas In the in
terest of harmony.
Several friends of Bryan presented res
olutions eulogizing him , but these' were
not incorporated , in pursuance of the
peace pact. The resolutions as finally
adopted were largely drawn by Shallen
berger. The second plank was the work
of Mr. Metcalf , as was also the one relat
ing to service pensions. It doesn't men
tion Bryan's name , but it is an endorse
ment of him , if read closely.
This was the first time in twenty-one
years that the name of Bryan docs not
appear in a democratic state platform.
That no fight was made to insert it ,
coupled with some eulogy of the leader ,
was due to the fact that Mr. Bryan re
quested his friends that nothing be done
to create any trouble. The two times
that his name was mentioned in speeches
drew forth enthusiastic applause , and
friends of his among the delegates felt
that if a fight had been precipitated they
could have won.

"The democracy of Nebraska in con
vention assembled reaffirms its allegiance
to the fundamental principles-of the party
as enunciated in the state and national
platforms of 190S. We point with pride
to the leadership the democracy of Ne
braska has taken during the last quarter
of a century in the retorms already ac
complished as well as those that are in
process of accomplishment. It was the
voice of Nebraska democracy that pleaded
persistently , and in the face of great dis
couragement , for the election of senators
by the people ; for the income tax ; for
tariff revision in the interests of the con
sumers ; for the free listing of products
of the trusts ; for the publicity of cam
paign fund receipts and expenditures ; for
guarantee of bank deposits ; for the regu
lation of railroads ; for the support of the
rights of the states , and the preservation
of the general government in its whole
constitutional vigor ; for the prevention of
the establishment of a 'twilight zone' be
tween the nation and the state , in which
exploiting interests might take refuge
from both ; for the preservation of our
consBitutionaJ form , without impairing
through legislation by courts or other
wise ; for the vindication of the truth that
'a private monopoly is indefensible and
intolerable , ' and finally for the broad
democratic doctrine that the people may
safely be entrusted with the control of
their own government.
"We congratulate the nation that dem
ocratic principles are rapidly winning
favor in all sections of the country and
with fair-minded men of all parties. We
rejoice in the loyalty shown to the prin
cipled by th"5 democratic members of the
national senate and house of representa
"We view with pride the Splendid quali
ties of faithful leadership displayed by
patriotic and courageous democratic gov
ernors. The record that has been made
is proof that democracy Is entitled to rule ,
because of the high ideals of government
it stands for and that it can be trusted to
guard the rights of the people because of
the loyalty , experience and capacity
shown by those whom it has entrusted
wtih power. With confidence we ask for
comparisons of the records of democratic
faithfulness -with that of republican un
faithfulness. The rising of democratic
ideals with the lowering of republican
standards of political morality , and popu
larity , the popularity of democratic legis
lation with the growing odium attached
to republican policies.
"We point to the fact that democratic
principles are triumphant in public opin
ion and that the republican party is be
ing forced to gradually abandon its at
tempt to hold the republican rank and
file to longer support the so-called pro
tective tariff policy of that party. While
we regret that there was not a demo
cratic president and a democratic senate
to make possible a beginning of tariff re
vision by striking the first blow at the
protection now accorded all trust prod
ucts in the present tariff bill , TVC point to
the Taft reciprocity measure as proof that
the republican party is now abandoning
even the-pretense that its protective pol
icy is for the benefit of the American
farmer. The democratic free list tariff
bill is proof that our party has taken a
first step in the right direction and can
be trusted when it is given power to re
duce the tariff which feeds the trusts
and fattens them at the expense of the
farmers of the nation.
"We favor the early passage of a ser
vice pension bill. We commend the dem
ocratic representatives of this state for
their support of such a measure in the
last congress , and urge our senators and
representatives in the present congress
to earnest effort along that line to the
end that this long deferred act of justice
to the old veterans will speedily become
"This convention commends and en
dorses the record of the late democratic
legislature and congratulates it upon its
fidelity to the platform pledges upon
whlsh its members were elected. We en
dorse the law which that legislature en
acted for the election by the people of
delegates to the national convention , and
for the Instructions of those delegates bj
the people as to whom they shall cupport
for president and vice-president and the
constitutional amendment providing for
the Initiative and referendum , whereby
the people themselves are given the power
to finally settle local questions of govern
ment or political differences by a direct
vote , to which amendment we pledge our
"Wo submit that the issue presented In
the approaching campaign is whether any
but republican citizens are entitled to rep
resentation In the supreme court , on the
iairway eommsision or board of regents
of the state university. "Wo further urge
upon the people of this state the great
Importance of settling these , questions
aright. What democratic representation
in congress has done for the people may
be seen by contrasting the present con
gress with the last republican congress.
What democratic representation In the
various legislatures has done is shown In
the long list of progressice laws which
such legislatures have passed. Because
of the record made by the last two dem
ocratic legislatures and the leadership of
Nebraska democracy it has the foremost
place among the states of the nation as
a leader In all matters of progressive
legislation which tends to promote the
interest of the commonwealth and keeps
the powers of government closest to the
"We submit that a congress , or a legis
lature , composed exclusively of members
of one party , would not be for the public
welfare. We further declare that It Is as
important to have both schools of politi
cal thought represented in the supreme
court , which interprets the laws , as in
the legislature which makes them.
"There are scores of thousands of Nebraskans -
braskans who are not republicans , who
contribute their full share of taxes to the
support of the university and who have
a pride and interest in its felfare , and it
should be their right , as well as to the
best Interest of the university itself , to
have them represented in Its manage
ment. The railway commission is one of
the most important boards under our
constitution. Its purpose is to guard the
interests of the general public in dealing
with the great transportation companies.
It is of the greatest importance that this
commission shall not become a partisan
institution , and therefore we ask that
the rest of the electorate of the state
that does not align itself with the , repub
lican party be accorded representation
upon this board.
"We deplore the veto of the nonpartisan
san judiciary act by a republican gover
nor and wo Invite fair-minded republic
ans to join with us in the coming elec
tion to help us elect three democratic
judges to the supreme court- two demo
cratic regents of the state university and
one democratic railway commissioner , so
that the democratic citizens of this state
may be accorded a minority representa
tion In these various bodies. We submit
that this will be as much to the interest
of republicans , who desire good and rep
resentative government as to the interest
of the democratic party itself. "
Distinct Intimation that the people's In
dependent party of Nebraska is no longer
willing to be the tail end of a demo
cratic-populist alliance- was given by del
egates of the peoples' party , assembled in
state convention in Lincoln Tuesday. By
no open avowal was Nebraska democracy
notified that it could not count with cer
tainty upon the future blind support of
the populists. The tendency for an inde
pendent policy was repeatedly evident ,
however , in the acts of the convition
and in the remarks of individual speak
W. J. Bryan received enthusiastic ac
claim at the hands of the populists when
resolutions were read which lauded him
above any other leader of the people's
party. Ex-Governor Shallenberger was
indirectly scored for his non-acceptance
of a populist nomination because it was
not accompanied by the democratic lead
ership. Finally , Chairman Manuel of the
state committee was not only tendered
a vote of thanks for his service in man
aging campaigns for six years past , but
his acts as authorized leader of the party ,
with specific inclusion of his bolt of
Dahlma.ii and his support of Aldric.h
were unanimously endorsed.

"The people's independent party of Ne
braska looks with satisfaction upon the
record it has made and rejoices because
the principles that it announced tv.'enty
years ago , although at that thn.j they
were met with denunciation , derision and
contempt , have now been accepted In a
greater or less degree by all parties and
all right-thinking men.
"The people's party was the first to ad
vocate an income tax , the initiative , ref-
ejendum and recall , postal savings banks ,
the regulation of railroads , and , If that
failed , government ownership , the elec
tion of United States senators by direct
vote of the people , the' direct primary ,
working men's compensation for acci
dents , rural free delivery , Australian bal
lot , the prohibition of child labor , the
government ownership of all natural
monopolies , such as water WCfks , gas and
lighting. It sought to apply the spirit of
the declaratign of independence and the
preamble to the constitution to the gov
ernment of this nation. It therefore op
posed government by injunction and the
changing of the constitution by judicial
interpretation , fought monopoly in every
form , especially those monopolies that'
weje founded on high tariff ; it favored
organized ia > l > or and regretted the decision
of the courts that appli1 ? the negligenc6
of the fellow servant rule.
"All these positions are now regarded
as based upon the natural rights of man
kind and are statesmanlike policies that
the government must soon adopt.
"Thero is only one principle , and that
the most important of all , that the other
parties have not accepted , and that is the
quantity theory of money , whereby a sys
tem could be adopted that would main
tain a general level of prices from year
to year. 'I he rise in prices that still con
tinues has demonstrated the populist the
ory to be correct and in the near future
if the increase in the output of gold con
tinues the governments of the whole
world will have to adopt it.

statesman , prominent in the public eye ,
who has not achieved his greatness by
advocating one or more of the cardinal
principles of the people s independent
"In the battles of the last twenty years ,
in which we have been assailed by all the
interests , there has been no braver fighter
than W. J. Bryan. And to all who have
been on the firing line and especially to
W. J. Bryan we send greetings.

long defended we pledge our future sup

stituted as to give assurance to our people
