H«* I" a Democrat.
Philadelphia Evening Telegraph
With WHaon and Harmon eliminat
ed, or with the irony »*ut ion deadlock
ed. it Is the gerie'.al belief here fW
Washington that Clark has the beat
chance.- lie is popular The no m
! her of the House of ReproMntatlvea
like him and they are influential in
their route*five states. Unless Un
derwood develop* strength. Clark
might have the entire vote of the
South, lie ha* always supported Mr.
Bryan, but somehow he hasn't any re-j
put at ion as a hair-brained revolu
tionist. The worst that can be said
of him it that he is a democrat, ayd
that he walks a chalk line lu ‘‘the
middle of the road.”
On the Saf*" Side
"a large, shaggy, rough necked per
son came into a haberdashery in
Washington and asked the clerk—a
bored young person, who wore a very*
high collar and was much interested
In the polish on hi* nail* — for a |
*hirt.
“Which of them is be*t?” asked
the customer
The customer yaw ned, examined
the nails and said: “Oh, 1C* Just a
matter of -taste.** *
• “But which kind would you get if
you was a-buying of them?’
“Personally I should prefer the
blue one.** answered the salesman,
.drumming on the counter, yawning
again.
“That so?’ asked the shaggy cus
tomer. “All right: I’ll take the pink
one. Here, wrap her up.*'
*
Mama's Mistake.
'• How cold your nose is I’*
These words came from the daugh
ter of the house, who was sitting in
the parlor with her beau.
• ’is Towaer in the parlor again?’"
demanded her mother from the next
rooas.
There t\as a long pause.
“No, mother; Towsar is not In the
parlor”
And then silence resumed its
reign.—Louisville Courier Journal.
TRADE MORAL—This paper*
acvc'tismg coiumns are the
business news of the commun
ity. ir you happen to need a
new parlor carpet, you will br
a lot more interested in a car-1
pet ad. than in a paragraph
about Jim Jones’ newly painted
barn. That's why everybody
in this vicinity reads this pa- j
per’s ads.
