So, whenever coilimittees from

"His congressional successes
were just exceptions 'to groove
his rule of defeat. But every
time he -went'. down he
came up fresher and strong
er, until now he has a greater
hold on the masses than he
ever had. And he's a bigger
man than he ever was, for the
simple reason that he has
known how to use defeat. In
the first place, he was never de
feated because of any fault of
character. So there was no
reason why he should despai-,
and he didn't. In the secono
p'ace, he never went ahead
until he felt sure he was right,
so he accepted his defeats as
mainly a difference of opinion
between himuself and the major
ity of voters, and no man need
be discouraged because he hon
estly disagrees with the masses.
This usually means that he is
right, and in the case of Bryan
it has so proven. For many of
his 'revolutionary radicalisms'
of a dozen years ago are now
being advocated by the very
ones who then stood aghast at
their mere mtntion!
"But back of all his defeats
and buffets is a man who be
lieves in himself, which is the
first requisite for any sort of
success. And back of this be
lief in self is a character that
will stand the most searching
rays of calcium carbide. And
when you reinforce self-confi

defy defeat, for there is no de
feating this combination, ril

a Republican, a Prohibitionist
or a' Socialist. Thiere is some

you than politics and parties.
It is manhood. And Blryan is a
man, of whom it may be said
he has neOve r known defeatt, al
though he has met it often, for
his sort of manbood can't be
