Chairman, and on March 10, 1802, ho
made a tariff speech that was tho sensation

tho Legislature had rcdistricted tho
Stato and his district in tho previous
election bad given tho Republican ticket

by 140 votes. -In tho Fifty-third
Congress ho helped to framo tho

SUE LIKES POLITICS.
Mrs. Bryan as a great liking for politics
and accompanies hor husband on
manyof his Nobraska jaunts, nor tastes
arccsscntially litcrary,and sho has writ-ton
much for various causes.
Sho is a charming woman, and is as
great a favorito in Lino oln as hor hus
band. Sho was ono of tho organizors
of Sorosis, tho leading woman's club of
Lincoln, and is also a member of tho
W. O, A. and othor societies. . Mr.
Bryan says sho is invaluablo to him in
suggestions and tho preparation of
matorial, and in ndvioo as to points and
methods. Tho childron aro very bright,
and aro pretty and woll bred,
It is not only for Mr, Bryan's great
gifts as a speaker that ho is estcomed so
highly by tho pcoplo of his homo. No
taint has ever attached to his publio or
privato aots. Ho neither smokes,
chows, swears nor drinks, and his language

sinco it was muoh through his

to bo hoard by thousands. It is so

In drawing a- comparison botwoon
Samuel J. Randall and Bryan tho Iattor
is thus described:
In four years' sorvico Bryan estab
lished a far greater reputation than did
Randall in tho samo length of timo.
Indeed, it may bo said without any
that whon Bryan quit
ho had as far spread famo as
Randall did whon ho died, after 20
yeors of Congress. Bryan is a
scholar, and has Btowod away in
his capacious cranium muoh of tho
golden grain, of wisdom and little of

either as argument or embellishment.

that it is positive advantago to them as

and graceful that thoy aro on

Minneapolis, Minn., July 2,1. For
tho first timo in their lives nearly 500
of tho rank and file, tried and truo

allegianco to tho old party. Moro
than that, they havo placed themselves
under tbo banner of frco coinago
and tho leadership of William Jennings
Tho Stato Frco Silver Convention,
which met in Harmonia Hall in this
city was ono of tho most remarkablo
bodies that ever mot in Minneapolis.
It practically forecasts, or rather announces,
a revolution in tho politics
qf a Stato which has been loyally
Republican for thirty-six years. It was
called a frco silvor convention, but it
was mostly composed of Republicans,
tho Democrats and Populists of Minnesota
being so firmly for freo silvor
already that it was not necessary for
them to bo present.
Tho COO men who attended tho Convention
represented ovory part of tho
State, and wero for tho most part the
very men who for years bavofonght and
won tho battles of tho Republican
parly in tnis state They wero men
who wero at tho birth of tho party
or havo always been loyal Republicans,
and this convention, mado up largely
of Republicans, as it was, sent 30
delegates to tho St. Louis Silver Convention
bound by tho following resolution:
"Resolved, That tho delegation to
St. Louis bo and is hereby instructed
to uso all honorablo means to securo
tho indorsement of Bryan and Sewall
as candidates for President and Vico
The Convention put in tho greater
part of tho day listening to eloquent
speeches by freo coinage men, who
but a now months sinco called them
selves Republicans. Among them were
ox-Lieutenant Governor Barto, tho
prcsemt Licutonant Governor, Frank
Day, Congressman Towno of tho Sixth
Distriot, Frank M. Nyo, County At
torncy oi uonnopin county, and a
largo number of Republican mombcrs
of tbo Legislature, Republican editors,
business mou and oven ministors.
Tho strength of tho silver
in Minnesota as shown by tho
convention has simply astonished old
party leaders and it is frcoly predicted
that Bryan will carry tho Stato by
a largo majority.

WAITING F0H A FAKM
.Tim Rnudall aud Stevo Hall sat in
tlio villago inn of tho latter ono evening
aft' t it was closed to outsiders, smoking
the. c pipes of peaco and friendship, ns
-,!' was .a plain country fun, whero
you could buy almost nnything, but it
also showed signs of modern improve
incuts sinco tho increase of population
and tho times demanded it.
Stevo Hall bad inherited it from his
father, aud, having como into possession
n year before, married tho girl ho loved
nnd settled down, which happy courso
of action ho was constantly urging upon
his old friend, Jim Randall.
"Ii you lovo Em well enough to havo
her, why don't you marry nt once, instead
of spending your best years in
courting nnd waiting?" asked Stevo of
"Oh, I can't afford itl" answered
Jim, stooping to knock tho nhps from
his pipe "Em's a good girl nnd has
promised to havo mo; but I told her
she, or rather we, must wait until I
could sco my way clear to support a
"What did sho say to that?" inquired
Steve, with n curious' expression ou his
"Sho said of courso wo couldn't expect
to mnrry nt once yon see, that
was flvo years ago and sho was willing
to wait, but didn't want mo to
think sho cared for money. To bo with
mo poor would bo happiness enough for
her, and so on. Von know how girls always
talk under thoso circumstances."
"Yes audi know Emma Willis always
means what sho says. Jim, if yon
had married her four years ago, you
would havo been a rich man now. "
"A rich maul How?"
"Well, to tell tho truth, I sco a good
many Bigns of neglect about your farm
which I know would nover exist where
Emma Willis lived."
Jim colored nt this intimation of his
indolence, and nnswered stiffly:
"Well, when it's all my own, I'll
tako moro pains with tho old place, and
innrry Em in tho bargain."
"Don't wait for that, old boy. Do
both right away, nud, my word for it,
you'll nover bo sorry. "
Theso words rang in Jim Randall's
cars as hn Walked back in tho starlight
to tho only homo ho had known sinco ho
was n boy.
Hero ho had lived with his grandfather
and tho old housekeeper ever sinco
first going to school, then assisting in
tho caro of tho farm until tho wholo
chargo gradually fell upon him. But ho
nover took much interest in it it was
too much liko working for nothing.
"Wait until it is my own, " ho would
say to himself ; "then you'll seo something
worth looking nt. " For Jim was
his grandfather's expected heir, and
somo day, not far off perhaps, theso acres
would bo in his possession. Then ho
would bring his wifo hero nnd fix up tho
old placo and show folks what ho could
do. But now ho might ns woll tako tho
world easy and not work himself to
death for his board and clothes.
Thus ho had always reasoned, until
tonight ho began to wonder whether ho
hadn't done wrong.
"Wifo," said Stovo nail that night.
"I do boliovo Jim will livo on and on
in tho old plnco until tho old man dies,
before ho will better himself. Ho has
fallen in this careless, indolent wny of
lotting things go, until it wouldn't
to hear that Em herself slipped
awny from him. "
"It is a shame," rejoined Mrs. Hall
warmly, "'to let such a sweet, pretty
girl as Emma Willis wasto tho best
years of hor lifo waiting for such a man.
I declaro I'd marry somobody olso just
"No, yon wouldn't, my dear. But it
is too truo that Jim doesn't tccm to
know what he's waiting for. I can't seo
that ids prospects imprpvo at all. "
"They may before long, for old Mr.
Randall has seemed unusunlly fccblo
Even as ho spoke, Jim Randall was
trying to rouso tho old man from sleep
iu tho big chair, whero ho was surprised
to find his grandfather at this lato hour.
But in vain. No enrthly power could
arouso tho old farmer from tho sleep
that had como upon him alono and unexpectedly.
So tho news later spread
throughout tho town, and a few days
later they laid him beside tho compan
ion or ltls youth, who had gono years
Then Jim Randall felt desolato
enough, and his only comfort was in
tho thought that tho farm was now his,
and ho could do as ho pleased.
Tho relatives nssemblcd after tho
to hear tho will read, which
seemed a mero matter of form to most
of them, as Jim's expectations wero
shared by nil.
After soveral small bequests tho lawyer
read tho astounding passago:
"In cousequeuco of tlio apparent
of iny grandson, James Randall, to
tho pursuit of agriculture, I hereby glvo
and bequeath my farm, consisting of
25 acres, with tho houso and outbuildings
thereon, to my brother, William'
Itaudall, and to my grandson, James
Randall, tho sum of 1,000, to bo paid
pno mouth after my decease, " J
Everybody in tho room sat stupefied
until tlio lawyer commenced rolling up,
tho parchment which had brought suoh I
confusion in tho camp. T lion n general

"You nro wclcomo to it, Unclo Wil

turning hastily nway.
When ho was left nlonc, ho covered
his faco with his bauds nnd groaned.
Whero wero his prospects now? What
had becomo of all his fluo plans for improvement?
When would Emma over

Thoso nnd other things connected with
tho mortification of having it known
that his expectations had been disap

Tho 1,000, which was surely his, sank
into paltry iuslgniflcauco besido tho

Thero ho sat miserably thinking nntil

to tho evening meal; bnt ho
conld not cat, nud resumed his plnco by
tho fire, wishing and not wishing ho
might seo Emma Willis.
So, when her faco appeared behind

meet her with moro joy than ho had felt
for years. They had como to offer their

Although agricnlturo was distasteful
to him, ho resolved to couqucr his
and mako amends for tho past. So
ho bought a small placo nnd'worked
hard to bring it to a high stato of cultivation.
Ho was so successful that his famo as
a farmer spread abroad, and many applications
for ndvico and consultation
did ho receive. Tho old farmers said
thero was no uso competing with him at

Thoso who know most about tho

tho advantago of giving pigs a clover

that this can bo mado an

clover is innutritious can bo tested
by turning either pigs or any othor
stock into a clover flold early in
tho season. Very littlo 'of tho olover

clover is very poor food nntil
it has progressed toward maturity far
enough to blossom. Even then
hogs will only cat it by biting off
tbo blossoms and leaving tho stalks.
Tho stomach of tho hog is not large,
and oven tho best of clover cannot
bo eaten in largo quantities to moro
