. J. BRYAN'S VALEDICTORY
"THE PASSING OF BRYAN"
DRAMATIC INCIDENT OF THE
NIGHT OF DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION AT BALTIMORE.
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,

on the nominations to spend a couple
of hours disposing of the platform, and
the usual resolutions.
The convention had

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.
Clerk finally reached the District of
Columbia, next to the last on the list.
He had to call twice. Finally the fig
ure of a fat man climbed onto a chair.
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
" '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.'
"There was a pause that seemed to
last ten minutes. It actually lasted
ten seconds, and then came the wild
est, most hysterical outburst of cheer
ing that had marked the convention, j
From the delegates themselves, from
the galleries, and from the dim re
cesses of the great dust-filled building
there went up a roar that seemed like
the whistle of a thousand locomotives,
merged into one.
"Down in the very front in the seat
set apart for him by the Nebraska del- j
egation Bryan was sitting. Motionless
he remained, the palm-leaf fan clinched I
his hand; his hair disheveled; his
face a lien white. But as the cheering
continued,-and incresaed in volume, a
red blush mantled the commoner's faco
'"Bryan! We want Bryan!' The re
train echoed and re-echoed from one j
section of the hall to the other, which
reverberated hack from the ceilings
until it was deafening.
"At last Bryan climbed on his chair.
'Platform! Platform!' the refrain went
up, and, in obedience to the cry, Bryan
slowly mounted to the same spot

nounced to their face Murphy, Ryan

You have been so gen
erous with me in the allowance of
time that I had not expected to trea
pass upon your patience again, but
the compliment that has been paid
me by the gentleman from the Dis
trict of Columbia Justifies, I hope,
a word In the form of a valedictory.
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
many persons that my party ought I
to have the leadership of someone |
who had not thus offended and who |
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.
It is not because the Vice-Presi
dency Is lower in Importance than
the Presidency that I decline,
is no office in this nation so low that
I would not take it if I could serve
But I be
my country by accepting It.
applause and cheering.)
j lieve that I can render more service
when I have not the embarrassment
I of a nomination and have not the
suspicion of a selfish interest—more
service than I could ns a candidate,
a and your candidate will not he more
active in tills campaign than I shall
be. (Great applause and cheering.)
My services are at the command of
j the party and 1 feel relieved that
the burden of leadership is transferred
to other shoulders.
AU I ask is that , having given us
a platform, the most progressive that
any party of any size has ever adopt
ed in this nation, and, having given
us a candidate, who, I believe, will
appeal not only to the Democratic
vote but to some three or four million
of Republicans who have been alienat
ed by the policies of their party there
is but one thing left, and that is to
give us a Vice-President who is also
progressive, so that there will be no
Joint debate between our candidates.
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. (Long continued applause.)

that 20,000 pesetas or about $4,400 was

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.

Arnold's Unfailing Tact.
Recollections of Justin McCarthy
are numerous Just now. One of them
speaks of a conversation between Mc
Carthy and Dean Stanley,
they were talking Matthew Arnold
I wa8 announced, and the dean, address
| lng the new arrival, said:
| here, Matt, and let me bring you face
to face with the man who says you
are only a miniature Goethe." 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."
Truly a Neat Reply.
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!"
Verger Wat Strictly Business.
English vergers no longer turn an
honest shilling by admitting spec
tators to see royalty at church. But s
few years ago one in a certain coun
try church thought of something ever
better. King Edward had been occu
pylng one of the pews, and after see

returned to find a brisk business go

to assist the church restoration fund
by charging loyal parishioners a few
pence each for the privilege of sitting

It Is generally conceded that the
employment of concrete in construc
tion has added a marked Impetus to
architectural study in recent years,
to home architecture. 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:

has recently been notable along the
lines of improvements In Its appear

lamented by architects and engineers.

while the execution depends upon the

therefore, we must have cooperation

Fry Potatoes in Crisco
Cut your potatoes into slices of less than a
quarter of an inch in thickness. Soak in ctdd
water, then dry them thoroughly in a doth.
Heat the Crisco very hot. Then drop in
the potatoes, a few at a time. 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.
