It is in its breadth that lias con
sisted the Democratic party's vitali
ty. Its object has been the greatest
good to the greatest number. Unlike
the American, the Greenback, the
Temperance and the Prohibition
parties, the Democracy has never
been a one-idea or a one-class party.
Unlike the Republican party, it has
never been devoted to the rich and
strong against the poor and weak.
The Democracy has been the partyof
the -whole people, and for the whole
people, and has been built up by the
whole people.

A few weeks ago a queer old cod

he drew it out just the same. Next
day the bank went sky high, and the
way the folks stopped laughing pro
