been full of a statement of logical
and indisputable facts the ammuni

acted in the capacity of ramrod to
send the load home in the minds of
the audience it was the dessert after
the substantial dinner. Mr. Landis
did not make his regular campaign
speech. The ground had been cov
ered so thoroughly that his mission
was clearly to trive the audience
something to assist in the digestion
and assimilation of the facts that had
bee presented so ably by the previ
ous speaker. Ana he aid it. ine
talk was a whirlwind of eloquence,
interspersed with humorous sur
prises that made the audience sim
ply howl with laugbtej and delight.
The deeper he jrot beneath the
epidermis of the perambu!atin'r,peri-

was delighted with the vivisection.

Tn his felicitous response to the ad

city Dr. Felix Cross referred to the
pen picture of the veterans, as puo

The doctor says the veterans
admit that they are in the

that it" is bad poliev for outsiders
to "throw it up' to them. Dr. Cross
