It will bo remembered that thoro

h Blushing Hero
Mr. and Mrs. Clark who have been
at the beach the past three weeks re
port a fine time and Brother L. T.,
covered himself with glory and salt
water saving the life of a fat old lad)
who wan Ignorant of the danger of
the strong undertow of a receding
tide. Old brlney had the old lady
headed off shore and the only part
of her anatomy that was In sight
when Brother Clark arrive on the
scene was a big striped stocking
with her foot init. Covering his face
with blushes the hero tackle the hos
iery and pulled for dear life and he
landed his catch. It is as good as a
Joke to hearblm scold about double
dod-rotted idiots going In swimming
In the big pond before they learn
Nee Hendricks, and Her
Mr. and Mrs. Clark
tally offended, but tho logger was
tooblg n man for him to attempt
to punish nnd tho only thing that
was left to do was to show his con
tompt for the big Irishman's honored
men, ho gathered up his wares and
as ho dashed each stntuelto to tho
pavomont ho exclaimed In his wrath;
"You smasha da Oarahaldl, I smnsha
da Georgo Wash, I smasha da Abo
Link I smasha da I'opo da Home,
smasha da wholo darn biz." Ho then
wnlkcd off with his head In tho air
a vindicated man.
Mrs. Georgo Mall, who Is n whole
show by hor loncsomo told tho story
of Undo Skinflint's generosity, Ills
nlcco had got married and It was
up to him to do tho hnndsomo as
ho was very wealthy and his nlcco
was In rather strnlghtonod clrcum
cos, no first inougiit to give nor a
$1000 plnno, then ho had n second
thought nnd declared that the sec
oiid thoughts wcro nlwnys the best,
nnd ho kept having second thoughts
until his present was reduced to just
soven cents. Tho thrifty old gontlo
man had saved $900.03 In Just n few
minutes. Ilo wns generous, though,
nnd throw In n nutmog with tho sov
en-cont nutmeg grntcr.
Then Just hh wo woro recovering
from tho story of Undo Skinflint tho
hostess hustled us out under the big
cherry trees to tables whoro there
was some of tho most delicious Ico
cronm wo hnvo oaten In mnnyn day
nnd wo Just bellovo It wns bettor ho
causo our slstorn provided It for tho
of equity, howover, and that was
whon wo got Into our host's chorry
troo. Our vnlllant chief of pollco wat
thoro.too, hut ho looked tho other
way. Wo might nil hnvo disturbing
conscloncos If It woro not that tha
Jolly host himself assisted In tho
Wo enjoyed n most delightful ovon

hoartfolt wish for tho futuro happl
noss of tho young coupln nnd good
wishes to our gonial host nnd his fall

tho thought of having enjoyed tho
fruits of true, genuine friendship.
St. Johns Should Do
More Advertising
Our father back In old Iowa had oc
caslou to send us a lot of maplo su
gar recently and upon going to the
depot to ship it tho agont told him
ho had no knowledge of such a placo
as St. Johns. That thoro was no
such a placo on thoinnp. When we
woro back homo last fall, being an ol
railroader, wo could not roslat tho
temptation to call on tho agent, anlco
looking young man andtell him that
about tho tlmo ho was wearing dress
es wo learned tho lightning Jorkors'
trade and that our first work was at
his station. Learning that wo had
boon living at IIoodRlvor, said: 'So
you aro from Hood Rlvor, That Is a
great country. Wo havo advertising
matter from there all the time, It is
tho biggest advertlsor on toll lino,"
The reason that St, Johns Is not
known In tho East like Hood River
Is becauso she 'does not advertise
what she has for tho homeseeker ant
the manufacturer, Hood River has
apples but when it comes to a place
for factories and for lovely homes in
a cllmato that is faultless, wo have
her skinned mile.

Tho despatches say that thoro wns
novor boforo much crowds gathered
on any occasion In tho history of
tho city as gathered there on Hint
day to seo tholr clthon given tho
greatest honor within tho power of
tho groat party to bastow. That tho
pooplo of Nobraska aro In oarnost
In tholr alleglanco to Mr, Bryan was
demonstrated In tho cheers from tho
thousands of throats which swelled
to a deafening roar as tho formal
notlco was given by Hoary D. Clay
ton of Alabama.
Thero Is a wondorful dlfforeneo this
ear In tho reception of Mr. Bryan
by the peoplo of his own state from
from that of the two other occasions
whon hecamo boforo thorn for tho
same honors. At those times It was
barely possible to get out a corpor
al's guard to do him honor in a half
hearted manner. This difference is
significant, and moans that tho re
publican party has ;i much harder
battlo before It than evor before
when Mr Bryan was up for tho of
flco of preside nt.
Mr. Bryan declared that his prin
ciples bad gained for him whatever
of prominence In tho political world
ha may bo possessed of at this time
and that the action of tho conven
tion that bad again placed him at
the head of the Jemocratlo tlcL-et
but confirmed him In thoso princi
ples and made hfra adhere themnra
firmly to them.

Tho democratic narty has risked

Such are somo of tho declaratloiib
of tho fcstlvo William, All mo 11
know how to put tho value upon thu
declarations. The fact remains ohut
tho republicans will not havo the
walk away thoy had at tho Inst oloc

that Roosovolt was, and Bryan has
a hold upon tho pooplo ns ho paver
