Wendling's Introduction of W. J. Bryan. At the great West Virginia mass meet ing at Morgan's Grove, last Wednesday, our talented fellow-townsman Hon. Geo. R. Wendling, who was a gold Democrat in 1S96, introduced Hon. W. J. Bryan to the immense audience. Mr. Wend ling said : My countrymen :?The forces that arc rallying to the support of the present ad ministration are the forces that at one time in New England and New \ork sup ported the Slave Trade because it was profitable. They are the same forces that in England compelled China to buy opium from India because there was mo ney in it. The men who find their con sciences in their pocket books, their prin ciples in double entry ledgers, and their patriotism in the profits of 9. high protec tive tariff, are all, openly or secretly, for this administration. They are men who believe not only in an imperial army and an imperial colonial policy, but also be lieve in the imperialism of wealth. When a man devotes his life to making money for the sake of money he is a curse to any community, and when a great political party is controlled by avaricious money makers in the interest of money making, that party becomes a great menace to the Republic. The imperialism that I am most afraid of is the imperialism of the dol lar. The exact form that the issues take in this campaign is very clear to my vis ion They all have one thing in common and are all involved in this one question : Shall manhood and character, or shall wealth dominate our politics? That supreme question makes every thoughtful man ask what is the remedy for the evil it discloses ? Let us remember then and deeply ponder a great fact in American history; in every crisis God has given to our people the right man at the right time?a man, I say, and not merely a platform. I speak for a large element when I say that I care very little about platforms. As the great preachers of the world Have always been broader than any dogmatic statement of religious faith, so the men who have led our peo ple up to higher political life were men who were greater than any platform. Their platforms were always stepping stones to higher things. Our hope in this country must therefore always be more in men thau in the planks of- a platform. Politicians can give us platforms. God alone can raise up and train and give us men. In the dark days of '76 the colonists put their earthly trust in one man, and he became the Father of his country. It was even so in Andrew Jackson's time when that inflexible Democrat took the United States bank by the throat, and while the Mark Hannas of that day were predicting panic and financial ruin, he flung the corpse of the monster at their feet. If you wish to find an embodiment of the spirit that gave freedom to the slave you will not turn to the conclaves of the scheming and place hunting pol iticians of the Republican party, but you will look up into the sad and careworn fac# of the great and noble Lincoln. If I seek the very incarnation of the bravery and the devotion of the South, her man hood. her chivalry, I will not turn to Slidell, and Tombs and Yancey, but I will go and stand with uncovered head in the presence of the immortal Robert Lee. If you wish to see an embodiment of the grim and relentless determation of the north to save the union, look at the immovable figure of that silent soldier, the magnanimous Grant. But will any man in this vast assemblage or anywhere on this wide continent say that if we wish to find a champion of the people, a friend of the oppressed, and an earnest antagonist of corporate greed and merci less avarice, we will find him in an ad ministration that has had unlimited pow er for four years, and yet has never struck a single t>low against any of the tryranical trusts or schem ? ng syndicates in all the land? Again I say. we always want men more than we want platforms. A poet laureate of England once gave voice to the feeling which controls many Amercans to-day. when he cried out: All God. for a niau will) heart, be d, liand, Like <* nie of ilie simple great one* gone Forever and ?iver by,^ ? ? ? I Whatever they call bitn. what carc I, Aristocrat, democrat, autoerit?one ' Who can rule and dare not He Such a man will speak to you now. I have known him from hisboyhood. He ! is of the people and for the people. He feats no living man, and all the money in Wall street cannot buy him. A great writer recently said of him. in words ab solutely truthful: "His life is simple, his tastes are ideal, his character is above re proach, his eloquence is powerful, his in dustry untiring." In iSgO he was fighting the exclusive claims of one kind of money and advocat ing the equal rights of another kind of money, and I did not agree with him. But to-day. without sacrificing his honest convictions, he has broadened the strug gle and is fighting the undue influence of all kinds ot money, and I am for him. In the war that he is now waging for this Republic, and for the welfare of this people, may the God of our fathers be with William J. Bryan.

The laurel crown used to decorate the brow of the victor In the old Olympian games or the head of some triumphant general was composed of bay leaves. The bay Is Lauras nobllls, and thus the wreath or crown has been called laurel or bay, according to the whim of the writer. The bay was considered by the ancients to be au antidote against poison and a se curity against lightning. Its leaves were used to provide a pleasing In cense. aud a spray of bay was carried In the garments of all superstitious persons as a guard against all daugers. It Is interesting to note how the laurel or bay lins passed down to these more prosaic times. The beads on medals, coins, etc., are almost always crowned with laurel. Then we have a poet laureate, or the poet crowned with laurel?that Is to say, the chief poet of the times. Again, the title of bachelor, won by exceptional skill in connection with art or science, takes us back to the middle ages, when youug doctors were crowned with laurel and received the title of baccn laurel.?London Gardener's Magazine. Hftppincsa. "I was recently party to a discus sion," said a doctor, "where the ques tiou of the nature of happiness arose, aud a certain wise head present was asked to dellne It. His reply was so satisfactory that I trust you will allow me to repeat it for the benefit of those Interested. "He said: 'Happiness Is a state of uiiud?more active than contentment, less pronounced and more abiding than joyfulness; whose principal aud per manent source is in a temperament dis posed to make the best of what Is; whose immediate occasion Is lu a con sciousness which, pleased with the present. Is without acute regret or un due apprehension.' "What better definition could one have than this?"?New York Sun. Tlie IlcMt He Could Do. "Mr. Blaine," says the Washington correspondent of The Chicago Record, "used to tell a story of au eccentric In dividual in Maine who was uever known to express au opinion on any subject. Being called as a witness in a lawsuit to testify concerning the rep utation of the defendant, the lawyers on both sides fulled to obtain a direct answer to any of their questions and finally appealed to the court. Itegarding tlie man sternly, the Judge said in his most impressive -tones: "Witness. I nin going to ask you a -Question, and I want you to give 1110 a direct answer. Is the defendant ft good man?' " 'Them that likes liim says he is; them that don't says he ain't," was the rej'ly."

The European soldiers when they fought their way up to the walls of Tien stien, saw floating in canals and ditches outside dozen of Chinese slain by their own people because they refused to fight., The bodies were headless and their hands were tied behind their backs.
