. J. BRYAN'S VALEDICTORY
"THE PASSING OF BRYAN" DRAMATIC INCIDENT OF THE NIGHT OF DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION AT BALTIMORE. LAST J he Pittsburg Press thus describes what it calls "The Passing of Bryan:" "The Passing Of Bryan." The voluntary passing of Bryan was the one great dramatic incident of the night, stopped in the middle of its roll call on the nominations to spend a couple of hours disposing of the platform, and the usual resolutions. erous time pass the me trict a the not and I my cept any who of can any not the The convention had It was long past midnight when it resumed its labors. The roll was proceeding slow The vast auditorium was still Jammed with people, had been listening with amusement to the efforts of orators to pay eloquent tributes to the man they were placing in nomination for the Vice-Presidency. "The heat and the lateness of the hour had had its effect and fifty per cent of the crowd was lolling back in chairs, hoping for something to en liven the monotony.

He was wet with perspiration, collar was a rag and his general ap pearance one of complete physical ex haustion. There was a general laugh from the gallery and then the repre sentative of the District, in a voice that penetrated to every part of the Armory, began: " 'Mr. Chairman," he shouted, 'we have nominated for the head of this ticket a man whom everyone admits is progressive. We believe that his sue cess is assured. But, to make assur ance doubly sure, I now nominate as our candidate for the Vice-Presidency of the United States the most progres sive of all Americans, the man who personally has created these policies which mean the placing of this na tion of ours on record as insisting on the absolute right of the people to rule, the greatest of all living Ameri * cans—the Honorable William Jennings Bryan, of Nebraska.'

'Platform! Platform!' the refrain went up, and, in obedience to the cry, Bryan slowly mounted to the same spot where, a few days ago, he had de nounced to their face Murphy, Ryan and Belmont. "Bryan did not speak long, but every word he uttered will long be remem bered by those who heard It. spoke, in a voice that at time trembled with emotion, or regret that the per sonal enmities he had engendered dur ing the sixteen years he had been lead ing Democracy made it necessary for him to relinquish the leadership into their hands."

(Applause.) For sixteen years I have been a fighting man. Performing what I re garded as a public duty I have not feared to speak out on every public question that was before the people of the nation for settlement, and I have not hesitated to arouse the hostility and the enmity of individuals where I felt it my duty to do so In behalf of my country. (Applause.) I have never advocated a man ex cept with gladness and I have never opposed a man except in sadness. (Cheers and applause.) If 1 have any enemies in this country those who are my enemies have a monopoly of hatred. There is not one single human being for whom I feel ill-will. (Applause.) Nor is there one Ameri can citizen in my own party or in any other whom I would oppose for anything except I believed that in not opposing him I was surrendering the interest of my country, which I hold above any person. I recognize that a man who fights must carry scars (applause) and I decided long before this campaign commenced that I had been in so day to and to 20 tie, 35 50 many persons that my party ought I to have the leadership of someone | who had not thus offended and who | I many battles and had alienated so might therefore lead with greater hope of victory. (Applause.) Tonight I come with Joy to sur render into the hands of the one chosen by this convention a standard which I carried in three campaigns, and I challenge my enemies to de clare that it has ever been lowered in the face of the enemy. (Great ap plause and cheering.) The same be lief that led me to prefer another for the Presidency rather than to be a candidate myself leads me to pre j fer another for the Vice-Presidency.

(Great applause.) I shall, therefore, in conclusion, sec ond the nomination, not of one man, but of two; Governor Buike of North Dakota, and Senator Chamberlain of Oregon.

The personal ex penses of Columbus and his officers were about 2,000 pesetas and six pese tas a month sufficed for the crew, so that 20,000 pesetas or about $4,400 was spent for the eight months that the voyage lasted. The sum total for the discovery of America was, therefore, 36,000, or about $7,200. In spite of the small amount required, however, Queen Isabella was forced to pawn her Jewels, it Is related, to provide funds for the expedition. Soudanese Almost Exterminated. The general opinion of the Egyptian fellaheen Is not a flattering one. We have generally looked upon him as a beast of burden whose only Idea of retaliation for the blows showered upon him Is to find some one even more abject than himself and repeat the castigation with Interest. But Lord Kitchener In his first report has a good word to say for the fellah. He speaks of him as "one of the best and most hard-worked types of humanity," so we will willingly revise our esti mate and Btand corrected. Incidental ly Lord Kitchener tells us that the population of the Soudan was about nine millions before the Mahdtst re bellton, that after the rebellion It was reduced to two millions, and that It la now over three millions. The trifling reduction of seven millions of people was due to war and starvation. That Is to say, they were killed. I I as (s, on to Life Length of Thinge.

Mc Carthy was naturally embarrassed at the repetition of a remark that seem ed to be ill-natured. "Oh, come, now I didn't say only a miniature Goethe," he stammered, but Arnold promptly relieved the situation by remarking with a winning smile: "If he could only convince me that I am a minia ture Goethe, how proud of myself he would make me."

Owen Johnson says that the best example of repartee he has evet heard came from a New Haven hook agent, who still, as In Johnson's daj at Yale, Is called "John Drew" by th« students, because of his society man Johnson was a freshman then living at Pierson hall. The book deal knocked, entered, looked suavely about, and remarked, "Ah, I see some new faces this year." A would-be wit of Johnson's class responded "Why, yes, we change them every year." Instantly the book agent re plied, still more suavely. "Ah! I trust that you will get a better face next year, young sir!" ner. i-r Verger Wat Strictly Business.

The pliability of cement plaster makes it readily adaptable to any form the architect may evolve. In many parts of the country architects are applying them selves to this subject, and beautiful effects have been produced. Charles D. Watson has been giving much ptudy to the problems connected with home architecture. He says: Progress in concrete construction has recently been notable along the lines of improvements In Its appear ance, to enable it to be used for face work In the higher class of buildings where good architectural effect is es sential. For many years the unsat Isfactory appearance of structures built of this material has prohibited Its use for facing of high class struc tures, and this difficulty In the use of a material which Is otherwise supe rior to the majority of other materi als used for a similar purpose, on ac count of Its durability, has long been lamented by architects and engineers. It Is only In the past few years that much progress has been made In de vising means for an Improvement In Its appearance and to do away with the objections, houses depend upon two factors for their artistic effect. First, design; second, execution. By far the more Important of the two factors Is that of dei 'gn, which comes entirely with in the Jurisdiction of fhe architect, while the execution depends upon the builder.

TROUBLES OF SMALL BOYS Teachers' Proper Desire to Inculcate Cleanliness Has Not Always Smooth Sailing. In the model school in the 1 A— |. which is next to the kindergarten, as | every one knows who hasn't forgotten —every day there is appointed a tidy | angel. The one whose shoes are the |, shiniest, hair the smoothest and handB n most immaculate plays the role. He j walks around, inspects every child and touches the ones that are "fit," and they Immediately stand. All second class angels—those who haven't been "touched"—are, of course, In disgrace. Sometimes the "angel" isn't as angelic as his name implies. Should he want to "get square" with one of the boys he doesn't "touch," teacher has to come to the rescue to save some hair pulling. The poor boys have their own troubles, too. One lad who comes from a shiftless home had never been an "angel." Once teacher spied him back of the room spitting on and rub bing his shoes with his cap. That day he was "tidy angel." Going through her son's suit one day a mother found a pocket and handkerchief soaking Suspecting his drinking cup had been put to misuse, a trouncing was In store. The explanation: School be ing so far away, little boy had to take lunch. He wanted to be "touched." j He found a place to wash up. and In ; lieu of a towel used his hanky.

Do not put in too many at once, or they will cool the Crisco and you will lose the benefit of its very high frying temperature. When the Crisco is very hot, potatoes fry in it in 4% minutes, less than half the time required with other cooking products. They fry so quickly that a crust forms instantly and prevents absorption. They are crisp and deliciously dry. Notice how little Crisco is used—how much of it remains.
