Steady your nerves, and

by using bread made
from our whole wheat
flour. It is made from
the whole wheat berry
except the out side hull,
or bran, which is a woody
substance, irritating and
indigestible. Bread made
from this flour is not so
white as that made from
the pale white roller flour,
but it is far superior for
food as it contains all the
gluten, germ, and oily
matter of" the wheat and
is much sweeter than
graham or any other
bread not sweetened

E. E. WILLIAMS,
W. J. BRYAN'S ADDRESS.
Oincols, Nob., Nov. 6. Bryan to day
gave out the following:
To Bimetallism of the United States:
''Conscious that the millions of loyal
hearts are saddened by temporary defeat,
I beg to offer a word of hope and en
couragement. No cause ever had sup
porters more brave and devoted than
those who have espoused the cause of
bimetallism. They have fought from
conviction, and have fought with all the
zeal which conviction inspires. Events
will prove whether they were right or
wrong. Having done their duty as they
saw it, they have nothing to regret.
The republican candidate has been
heralded as the advance agent of pros
perity. . If his policies bring real pros
perity to the American people those
who opposed him will share in that
prosperity. If on the other hand, his
policies' prove an injury to the people
generally, those supporters, who do not
belong to the office-holding class, or to
the privileged class, will suffer in com
inon with those who opposed . him
The friends of bimetallism have not
been vanquished; they have simply
been overcome. They believe the gold

bing dry goods houses their

eUndard Is a connplracy of the money
changers against the welfare of the
human race, and until convinced of their
error, they will continue the warfare
gainst it. The contest lias been waged
this year under great embarrassments
and against great odds. Jut in spite of
the efforts of the administration and its
supporters, in spite of the threats of
money lenders at home and abroad, in
spite of the coercion practiced by the
corporations on employes, and in Spite
of the trusts and syndicates, in Spite
of the enormous republican campaign
fund, and in spite of the influences of
the hostile daily prese, bimetallism has
almost triumphed in its first great fight ;
but bimetallism emerges from the con
test stronger than it was four months
ago. I deaire to commend the work of
the three national committees, which
have joined in the management of this
campaign. They have laid the foun
dation for future success and they
will be remembered as pioneers whin
the victory is at last secured. No per
sonal or political friend need grieve be
cause of my defeat. My ambition has
been to secure immediate legislation,
rather than enjoy the honors of office
Therefore defeat brings to me no
feeling of loss. Speaking of the wife who
shared my labors, as well as for myself, I
desire to say that we have been amply re
paid for all that we have done, in love by
millions of our follow-citirens so kindly
expressed. In the knowledge gained by
personal contact with the people and
in broadened sympathies we find full
compensation for whatever efforts we
have put forth. In the face of the
enemy rejoicing in its victory, let the
roll be called for the engagement, and
urge all friends of bimetallism 10 renew
their allegiance of the cause. If we are
right, as I believe we are, we Bhall yet
triumph. The year 1900 is' not far
away. Before that year arrives, inter
national bimetallism will cease to de
ceive. Before that year arrives those
who have called themselves gold stand
ard democrats will become bimetallists
and unite with our party or become re
publicans and thus open enemies. Be
fore that year arrives, trusts will have
convinced still more of the people that
a trust ; is a menace to private welfare
and to public safety ; before that year
arrives, the evils of the gold standard
will be even more evident than they are
noWrOnd people will be ready to demand
an American financial policy for Ameri
can people, and will join with us in the
immediate restorarion of free and un
limited coinage of gold and silver at the
present legal ratio of 16 to 1, without
waiting for the aid or consent of any
