That the Democrats will have a high

Chicago, the scat of the Republican
convention, is ten times more popu
lous than Denver. But what of that?
Chicago has entertained so many na
tional conventions that the novelty is
worn to a frayed frazzle. Besides, Chi
cago i.s too big to care much about
Fiv.-li things. Denver, with her 2!(),;00
people, is just big enough to take ad

.international interest and grow bigger

shadow the men. Some few of the. wo-'
men. in fact, will sit on the convention
floor that is. in the opera chairs on
the tloor as delegates from suffragette
states. The world do move!
According to the energetic gentle
men who draw salaries for promoting
publicity for Denver, the Itocky moun
tain metropolis has two ends in view
in entertaining this convention. One is
to make Denver known as THE con
vention city of the United States. The
other Is to present the Colorado cli
mate, scenery nnd resources to the at
tention of the many prominent men
who will attend the gathering in a
manner thr.t will cause the good im
pression to remain permanently, like a
tattoo on n sailor's forearm. That is
why the local committees have ar
ranged various sightseeing trips from

require a Republican legislature to

will be the fourth Democratic conven

his "cross of gold" mvfaphor speech it
was all off with the lending candidates.
Trior to the convention at Kansas
City in 1900 the situation was re
versed. There was nobody in sight
but Bryan. Ills nomination was as
sured long before the delegates met.
At St. Louis in 1904 the convention
named Alton B. Tarkcr of New York
for the presidency, but it was by and
with the consent of William J. Bryan.
Mr. Bryan did not want the nomina
tion that year. Having borue the party
banner twice, each time going own to
defeat and being held personally, re
sponsible for failure by a considerable
section of the party, he was willing to
appease the demands of that section
by permitting it to name the candidate.
But he was not willing to let the con
vention put forth a platform upon
which he and his friends could not
stand consistently. In the committee
rooms of that convention lie made one
of the most remarkable fights of bis
whole career, a fight for a platform
that would not estrange the majority
of Democrats, and he won.
In Denver, of course, Mr. Bryan will
not be represented in person. He w ill
remain at his home, as he did during
the Kansas City convention. It Is only
when a man doesn't expect a nomina
tion or when he doesn't want it. as In
the case of Bryan at Chicago and St.
Louis respectively, that the etiquette of
American politics permits him to take
a hand In the proceedings.
The man selected to deliver the
speech placing Mr. Bryan's name be
fore the Denver convention is Ignatius
J. Dunn, city attorney of Omaha. Mr.
Dunn is hailed as a polished and force
ful orator. He is one of Nebraska's
delegates at large.
In this connection an amusing Inci
dent of the Kansas City convention is
recalled. Webster Davis, formerly may

When you realize that ninety-nine hair preparations out of a hundred, depend almost entirely
upen Tincture of Cantharides for any good they may do, is it any wonder that people fail to get bene
ficial results from them.
Tincture of Cantharides is made by soaking foul smelling green bugs or f.ies that have first
1 been dried and powdered in alcohol and filtering out the sediment. The practice of using Canthar
ides began centuries ago. when it was thought that a diseased scalp required an irritant. The utter
uselessness of continuing to put these dead bugs into hair remedies, became apparent when the Euro
pean Dermatologist, Dr. Unna (ask your Doctor about him) discovered that dandruff is caused by a
germ or mxrobe; in real.ty an invisible vegetable growtlj. that can be passed from one head to an
An authority says, "Any successful scalp treatment must be based on the recognition of the mi
crobe theory," and further, "What on earth gave Cantharides Its reputation in hair remedies, is more
than I know.' It is tradition of a century and it is all nonsense. Cantharides cuts into the scarf
skin and causes inflammation. It is made of dead bugs, and It furnishes exactly the element of de
composition that scalp microbes thrive upon."
Newbro's Herpicide, the ORIGINAL Remedy that "kills the dandruff germ," contains no Can
tharides in any form whatsoever. .It is made upon the known principle that dandruff, itching scalp
and falling hair, as well as dull, brittle and lusterless hair, are caused by a germ or microbe f iat finds
lodgment in the sebaceous glands of the hair follicles in the sc alp.
It should, be understood that Newbro's Herpicide does not instantly destroy all of the thousands
of colonies of microbes in a diseased scalp, as a live electric wire might be expected to destroy its
victims. .The microbe growth occurs just beneath the surface of the scalp, therefore, patience and rea
sonable intelligence are required, but under such conditions Newbro's Herpicide gives results that are
often most marvelous. Even in ordinary use it gives more actual and positive .benefit than do all
other hair remedies combined. .It stops itching of the scalp almost instantly.
Dr. V. T. McGillycuddy, Medical Inspector Mutual Life Insurance company, New York, of Den
ver, Colo., writes as follows:
"Knowing the composition of Herpicide can state that it contains -nothing injurious. .Its use
will cure and prevent a recurrence of dandruff. It is an elegant and ideal hair dressing." '
DURING TUTS HOT WEATHER people who take pride in extreme cleanliness will find
N'ewliros Herpicide n positive deliRht. It cools and comforts the skin and scalp, and at
the same time i.s highly determent nd sanitary. 1 1 is indispensable to sufferers from ex
cessive perspiration or prickly heat. Newbro's Herpicide contains no oil or grease. It
will not stain nor dye.
