The Lms f Jack
I saw j boy tbe other day, of, maybe seven years. Out on a corner, Bobbin?; on his cbeeka were great bftf tears 1 stepped to ask bim what was wrong and pat bim ontbe head "l9e los' my dog bis Dame is 'Tip I love bim so," be said. Tbat youngster brought back to. my mind a tittle dog of mine, A curl knew down on a farm when 1 was eigbt or nine; A dot; 1 loved with all my heart and one that worshipped me; A trie id. a playmate ami a pet, true as but dogs can be No swim could be complete for me unless Jack went io, too; If we were pined for an hoar, a CJrtair boy was b!ue; No ramble in the woods was right without Jack at my heel; He always slept upon my bed and ever shared my meals One day dad sent me into town for something for a plow; I rode a horse; Jack went along I seem to see us now. Jack barked and played and romped ahead until we reach ed the store. Oi starting home a man caught Jack; I never saw bim more He jerked tbe dog, and kicked him tooand threw him io a can I begged without avail; be left and broke my youthful heart "Go to tbe pound," somebody said; I hurried home instead. Next day Dad weot to look for Jack they'd shot my play- mate dead. Dad brought bim home; we buri ed bim outon a little bill. I've never owned a dog since then guess I never will. Now, wbenol see a boy who's lost a dog I do my best To find it, for I know tbe pain that's in tbe youngster's breast Bide Dudley in tbe Denver P09t. Spirit of the State Press REMOVE THE CAUSE.

Tbe Folk papers are now sug gesting tbat Senator Stone withdraw from politics in order to promote harmony in Demo cratic ranks. Some withdraw ng ought to take place, all right, but tbe question as to which candidate should with draw is open. Lexington In telligencer Bryan on Campaign Fundi. "An election is a public affur and participation in politics is a civic duty. All arguments used in elections sbould be used publicly and all meaas employ ed to secure the election or to defeat a candidate sbould be means which the ooe using tbem would Dot be ashamed to have tbe world know." This epitomizes the views of William J. Bryan on tbe subj-ct of publicity of campaign con tributions as expressed ' before thejHouse committee on elec tioo of president and vice pres ident. The meeting was called for tbe special purpose of bearing Mr Bryan, and in addition to tbe lull membership there were Dresent Perrv Belmont and Samuel Gompers and other la bor leaders. Mr Bryan declared tbat re forms only come when abuses are recognised. "Not until there is an evil to be remedied." he said, "does one think of a remedy?" "The tbiog to be remedied in American politics,1 be continu ed, "was tbe use of money to secure control of tbe govern ment, tbe money being advanc ed by those antagonistic to tbe public purse." Wben a man resorted to se crecy, be said, it must be be cause be bas something to gain tbat be does not want tbe world to know, or tbat be distrusts tbe intelligence of patriotism of the people.
