Mr. Mathews Is a democrat who has
spent more than a score of years fight
ing the battles of the democratic party.
Ever since Wlllam Jennings Bryan In
jected himself into the democratic lime
light Mr. Mathews has been his booster
and has burned many gallons of the
midnight oil backing the ex-secretary
Of state and fighting his battles. With
bis bright little paper at Rlverton he
has constantly advocated the many vary
ing paramount Issues put out by the
great commoner and has gone down to
defeat with Mr. Bryan without a mur

continued to boost.
Aaraln Takes to Trowel.
This summer the heavy rains played
sad havoc with the bright prospects of
Mr. Mathews. His nice little home,
whloh. by his frugal Industry he hsd
built In the little town of Rlverton, was
flooded. The Thompson river, (not the
little giant) backed up and flowed through
the town flooding his home, destroying
his furniture. His print shop was also
flooded and the loss to the fighting
editor was so much that he was forced
again to take up the mason's trowel and
go back to his trade, while his daughter.
who has Inherited many of the sterling
Qualities of her ather, has taken charge
o the Review and Is making It blossom
with good things.
Under these circumstances It would
have seemed the "psychological moment'
or Mr. Bryan to have rewarded his con
stant booster with the desire of his heart
and given him the Job of United Btates
marshal and the magnificent salary which
would have enabled Editor Mathews to
have restored the home, which the floods
destroyed, and not have been compelled
to go back to the hard but honest toll
. of a brick mason.
However, Mr. Mathews Is not kicking,
or at least appears to be satisfied. He
was at the state house this rooming and
discussed the political situation and said
that he was perfectly well satisfied with
the appointments for the federal jobs in
Nebraska. "When I discovered that Tom
.Allen was to get the Job of district at
torney I knew that I was out of the
running for the marshalshlp," said Mr.
Mathews. "I shall continue to boost for
Mr. Bryan and shall take delight, as 1
always have. In putting all the political

Mr. Mathews, "he will lose the Fifth

"Omaha People Are
A prominent Omaha man made this
remark the other day relative to the idea
back of this series of advertisements.
He meant that Omaha people are of
the "show me" kind. Yet he was rather
proud of the fact. It shows that a man must
"deliver the goods" if he seeks Omaha ap
proval. With that quality in mind and busi
ness, the manufacturers of Omaha the real
producers of much of our wealth have
caused Omaha to' be known as a producing
center of quality goods at lower prices
If you are willing to be "shown," next
time do more than. ask for just "starch" ask
for "Omaha-Made Starch."
