mean to realize the great cosmopoli
tan idea, upon which the existence of
the American nation rests. Thus we
mean to fulfill the great mission of
true Americanism thus we mean to
answer the anxious question of down

Aye' thundering into the ears of the
despots ol the old worm mat a man s

jection on false preUmes; cheering
the hearts of the despondent friends

confidence. This is true American
ism, clasping mankind to its great
heart. Under this banner we march;
let the world follow."
A Preposteroas Proposition.
The information is given out that
"the eloquent and able John P. Irish,
in days gone by the leader of the
democratic party of Iowa," has de
clared that he will not support Bryan
"First That Mr. Bryan shall pub
liclv disavow the Chicago platform of
189G; second, that he shall admit that
the silver issue of that year was a
false issue and that his advocacy of it
involved the falsification of the finan
cial views of Jefferson and Jackson.
Then he must admit that every
prophecy made by him in that cam
paign regarding the disastrous effects
which would follow adherence to the
gold standard has failed to come true.
If he will do these things, repudiate
the populistic nomination given him
at Sioux Falls, terminate all relations
with the silver republicans and de
clare that the financial measures of
Mr. Cleveland's administration were
sound and democratic, he will easily
receive the unanimous vote of the
gold democracy of the country."
I( Mr. Irish is seeking to make him
self secure against the fulfillment
of any obligation of his own sug
gestion that would involve , his
support of Bryan he has hit upon
the right plan. If this is not his
object and he wishes to be taken seri
ously, it will not be surprising if peo
ple regardless of their political affilia
tion or prejudice suspect that he
is losing i ho brilliant intellect
that msde him famous. His'
proposition as 10 the conditions
under which be would support Bryan
is preposterous from any point of
view. It is preposterous in its sug
gestion that nnder any circumstance
Brjau would stultify himself, and
particularly for the support of one
who would regard him. as a more
worthv candidate for president of the
United States than one who would
stand or fall with his conscience.
Bryan is of the type of American
statesmen who would rather be right
than be president. It is because of
this pronounced characteristic that
people admire him; it is because of
it that people trust him. It is be
cause of it that they will elect him
president the next time they get a

Yes, August Flower still has the
largest sale of any medicine in the
civilized world. Your mothers and
grandmothers never thought of using
anything else for indigestion or bil
iousness. Doctors were scarce, and
they seldom heard of appendicitis,
nervous prostration or heart failure.
etc. , They used August Flow
er to clean out the system aad stop
fermentation of undigested food, reg
ulate the action of the liver, stimulate
the nervous and organic action of the
system, and that is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches
and other aches. You only need a
few doses of Green's August Flower,
in liquid form, to make you satisfied
there is nothing serious the inatter
with you. Sample bottles free at T. H.
Fatal mistakes are made by those
who do not heed the earlier symp

of the ladies. If the will call and
see what is being done by the schol

This Is an opportunity the ladies of

thus saving each person who desires
to learn the art of cutting, litting and

ter" has been a boon to thousands,
both rich and poor educating the
daughters in a useful art, enabling
the family to dress nicely at a moder
ate cost and done its lull share to
wards supplying the comforts and
blessings of a happy home. Ladies,
do not neglect this opportunity of
fered hero now, and then regret it
like others who have said: "O! how
I wish that I had taken instructions
when I had the chance." If our Held
instructors call on you do not let
them go away without making a full
explanation of our work in the school
room, but If they do not call at your
home, come to the room and investi
gate for yourselves. Many are avail
ing themselves of this "opportunity
of a lifetime." Parents, fulfill your
duties to your daughters and teach
them useful knowledge; whereby, if
necessity demands it, they can earn an
honest living and maintain their
womanly dignity. We fully beiieve
there is not a family in this city own
ing a sewing machine that will let
this opportunity pass after they un
derstand just wbat the "Diamond
Garment Cutter" Is, and tbat they can make
itb it any parmeot worn In the family witb
f perfect satisfaction. It Is a surprlso within
tself. If the ladles do not investigate they
wi 1 oe sorry. Visitor alwavs welcome at Uie
