WHY IS BRYAN” The whole country is confront ed by one of the most remark able instances of unswerving loy alty to a man who is great in spite of defeat, and in the rank of both Democrats and Republi cans we h ar the question “Why is Br.van.’’ The fealty of h followers is ever unshaken, and the half hearted and ill-advised “conspir acies” formed in various parts of the country t<> accomplish his defeat usually re-act upon the conspirators. He has met defeat with that cheerful philosophy which accepts the inevitable without railing at Providence, and those who have faith in him look on and admire him the more even his political reverses. He is a man among men. against whom the foul tongue of scandal mav not wag. wh> bids defiance by his very manline>s to the shafts of mal ce directed against him. rising superior to the things by which many another rn&n would be overcome. The Omaha WoiId-Herald an swered the question thus, sever al years ago: Nature has gifted Mr. Bryan with a remarkable face such a face as could be carved on a coin and not be out of place. He has a physical vigor which makes his unstudied gestures forcible and emphatic. He has an eye which is by turns commanding a d hu morous. And he has a voice which is equally adapted to ten derness or to denunciation. All these natural gifts has William J. Bryan, and to them is added a talent for research, a genius for accuracy, and a nature for truth. Let Nebraska congratulate her self on the fact that she has an orator who ix>ssesses the physi cal and mental qualities to make him a remarkble man in the his tory' of this nation. And if the After Once Tasting YSfol no one wants an old-fash ioned cod liver oil prepara tion or emulsion, because Vinol is a much better body builder and strength creator for old people,weak children, and for coughs, colds, bron chitis, etc. If it does no good we will return your money. BAKER DRUG STORE. Prescott, Ark. World-Herald reads the stars' aright, the time will come when W J. Bryan will have a reputa tion which will reach far beyond Nebraska—and it will be a reputation for the performance of good deeds. That destiny is working out a great career for William J. Bry an we firmly believe, but he will be great even if he is never president of the United States. — Arkansas Democrat.

BUCHANAN VS- WILLIAMS Hot Springs, May 27. — Follow ing close on the refusal of the governor to grant the commission to Buchanan Monday suit was tiled by Buchanan in the Circuit Court of Garland County to test the right of Williams, to hold the commission as she iff of that county, in the face of the recent decision of the Supreme Court Suit was also brought to recover the emoluments of the office for the full term. This action was forecasted in yeste; day’s story of the case, as Buchanan declared he would not await longer execu tive action in the matter. The suit will probably be advanced as rapidly as possible on the calen dar, as a matter of public inter est, so that a decision may be had at the earliest possible date in the Circuit Court.

As one weak link weakens a chain, so weak kidneys weaken the whole body and hasten the final breaking down. Overwork, strains, colds and other causes injure the kidneys and when their activity is lessened the whole body suffers from the excess of uric poison circulated in the blood. Aches and pains and languor and urinary ills come, and there is an ever increasing tendency towards diabetes and fatal Bright's disease. There is no real help for the people except kid ney help. Doan s Kidney Pills act directly on the kidneys and cure every kidney ill. Their cures are the proof. E. P. Allen, gardener, of 1516, East Sixth Avenue, Pine Bluff, Ark., says: “My experience with Doan’s Kidney Pills has been exceedingly satisfactory. They stopped the pain in my back which was almost constant and greatly aggravated if I took cold or did an ex tra hard day's work. In addition to the aching, irregularity of the kidney’s secretions existed anil at times they were highly colored. Before I used Doan’s Kidney Pills I tried more than one preparation guaranteed to cure kidney complaint but I met with very indifferent success. Doan’s Kidney Pills helped me from the start. The backache under the treatment grew less and less and finally disappeared.” For sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United States. Remember the name, Doans, and take no other. A TERRIBLE PICTURE. The president paints a terrible picture of the demoralizing influ ence of ill-gotten wealth. He pictures the multi-millioniare who has grown rich by immoral means as “the least admirable of all our citizens, a man of whom it has been well said, that his face has grown hard and cruel, while his body has grown soft; whose son is a fool and whose daughter a foreign princess; whose nomi nal pleasures are at best those of a tasteless and extravagant lux ury, and whose real delight, whose real life work is the ac cumulation and use of power in it' most sordid and least elevat ing form.’’ And who is this man whom the president pictures? He is the beneficiary of privilege, the child of favoritism in government. And how does he secure privilege and favoritism? By contributing cam paign funds to the party which will sell him the right to exploit the country. Which party has been doing this'. The republican party, whose leaders are now conspiring to ore vent any remed ial legislation. These same in rlumiees are seekiiig to dominate tin deiiioeratic party, but they find the democratic masses in corruptible and therefore their effort is frustrated.—Bryan’s Commoner. The indications are that alij the delegates sent from Texas to the National Democratic conven tion will be Bailey supporters.
