Grand Tribute to Bryan.
In , concluding a magnificent
speech on the floor of the House on
the revision of the tariff, Congress
man C. B. Randell, of Tsxas, paid
Wlilliam Jennings Bryan this grand
Before I take my seat Mr. Chair
man, I will say there is one thing
I should not overlook. The fre
quent allusion by gentlemen on that
side to a gentleman for whom I am
not a spokesman or mouthpiece, but
for whom I have the highest respect,
challenges my attention. From time
to time I have heard sirring re
marks come across the aisle in ref
erence to the most distinguished
Democrat in this country, and It has
grated on my nerves. No matter
how we may differ in reference to
our political views, all men should
recognize true manhood and merit
wherever they see it.
iAnd if there ever was a man in
this country who stood out fairly
and openly for what hs believed,
and who expressed clearly the views
on each side of every question he
discussed, and who stated with
clearness and fairness the argu
ments for and against, ihat man is
W. J. Bryan. Yet he is abused and
hated. I know nothing like it since
in ancient times. Aristic^ was ban
ished from Athens by a populaT
vote. His ability and probity stood
preeminent. He was called "Vhe
Just." But he was banished. If
the protectionists and grafters would
have their way, Xr. Bryan would
have to see some foreign clime.
Mr. Biryan is a devoted Democrat,
he is a Christian gentleman, he is a
patriot, and he stands high in the
United States and in all the civilized
worid. Why any rr.-n should
speak slightingly of hin;, I do not
know,, and I can not understand why
gentlemen on that side should re
fer to him with unfriendly slurs. I
suppose that Is the price men have
to pay for greatness. As Byron ex

rules or passion sways, this same

come, stand as a tower of Democrat

Need of Frequent Rest.
As much as we may regret it., we
are compelled to admb. that the old
time view of Sunday that use to ob
tain in this country has changed con
siderably in the past few years, and
the end is not yet. Aside from any
religious use of the day, the best in
' terests of people demand that one
day in seven be differentiated from
the rest. Apart from the moral
question involved it is certain that
the man who works save ndaye in the
week is physically and mentally
burning the candle of life at both
This is no new idea. It is as old
, as the race, and hai= always been
' true, and always will be true, we be
lieve as long as the human race re
mains what it is. In the height of
the great French revolution when
its leaders declared that everything
savoring of religion should be der
stroyed, the observance of Sunday
was officially abolished and one day
was substituted as a day oif rest and
enjoyment. A very few years' suf
ficed to show that the change was
injuriously affecting individual life
and consequently natonal life, and
a return to the kindlier seventh day
Where the Sabbath is observed
the people are better off in every way.
Apply this rule to any country you
please and see if it '? not true. If
for physical and other beneficfat
reasons a seventh day of rest or
recreation was needful in bygone
days when the business and social
life was not so strenuous, how much
more needful is it at the present
time when life is at a killing pace
resulting, in an increasing degree,
in nervousness and other ailments.
Abolish the Sabbath and you inevi
tably make a rich man a tyrant and
the laborer a slave.
In truth so far from letting work
intrude on our Sundays there is real
ly need of greater rest and more hol
idays if due regard is to be paid to
one's health and to - be best interests
of business and home. For that rea
son every man who can should set
aside all business an<? go to the woods
or mountain or seaside that by get
ting into touch with nature he may
shake off care, and renew his
strength that reinvlgorated he may
take up his duties once more with
fresh heart and hope. Of course it

expense that make.; for true econo

Keep Children Young.
It is a sad thing to see a child rob
bed of its childhood by being forced
to go to work to earn a living for
itself or parents. Just now some
magazines are exploiting the won
derful precocity of 6ome children,
and the parents of these children
have been airing their methods by
which they have enabled the children
at the tender age c? ten or twelve to
absorb as much, or even more, wis
dom and knowledg' as the average
person can do in twice that number
of years. It s all very entertaining
and interesting, no doubl, but in all
probability the methods if generally
applied would end in failure. The
very rare instances of precocious
minds that keep their strength and
elasticity to mature years only go to
show that the "Admirable" Crich
ton's and Lord Macauley's are very
few and far between. Usually
these phenominal minds degenerate
into learned dunces. Anyway the
the great majority of people will
continue to prefer that children shall
be children to enjoy life in childish
manner and develop naturally along
mental and physical lines, and not
