Mr. Bryan said Colonel Roosevelt

account of his personal acquaintance

"Ilanley's Revised Political Primer."
Greatest political book ever written: it
gives Roosevelt tho worst roasting
which ho will receive from all other
sources, in this campaign; It also roasts
Taft, and the republican party to a
frazzle. It is witty, humorous, catiri
cal. biting, and without malice. It
makes all republicans ashamed of them
selves. It is more humorous than any
thing Bill Nye ever wrote. It will elect
Woodrow Wilson in November. Price,

Belfast's great industrial, mercantile

a close a great anti-home rulo meet

was not equalled even by the anti
homo rule convention of 1892. Tho
meeting renewed tho adoption of tho
resolution passed at that convention
protesting against a homo rule par

dramatic moment of the memorable
gathering was tho unfurling and pre
sentation to Sir Edward Carson, tho
chief propagandist against home rule,
of the flag carried by King William
at the battle of the Boyne. The flag
was greeted with frenzied cheering,
contrary to expectations.
No new pronouncement of unionist
