Railroa ! Commissioner we most
heartily endorse. Mr. Wolling
is now in the prime of lite, lie
is one of the country's largest
and tnos? successful farmers. He
is a public-spirited man, as is
shown by his great interest in the
school of his community, the session
of which has often beei;
extended by his contributions
He is deservedly popular it

has had seven years experienn
in practical railroading, havin/
been a machinist liy trade, serv

we feel sure that whereever
he may be he will be fount
to be a man of the highest type
of Chri-tain character, whost
reputation is unsullied, whose
peculiar fitness for the office lit
seeks is recognized by many,

Jennings Bryan prefaced his ad
dress, which was of two hours'
duration, with a denial that he
will again seek to become the
Democratic party, his denial being
contained in the following
i ,;I hope you will give mo credit
with possessing a higher ambition
than to be satisfied with the
office of president of the United
States. I am too Democratic to
covet an ambition that only a
few of one generrtion can share.
I prefer the honor of being a
private citizen, an lienor greater
than'that of a king."
CONCERNING DREAMS. i

' Dreams are curious things, t
and as a rule 1 do not take much
stock in them," said a man who
lives up town, "hut a thing
happened here in New Orleans a
in the halcyon days of the c
! Louisiana lottery which made t
me a little shaky in my unbe- t
lief. The city was honeycombed t
then with lottery schemes and li
a man could make almost any p"
kind of a bet on the turn of the '

morning she toM him she had j
dreamed during the night that!
'three certain numbers had won
prizes in 1 he lot tory. Ho laughed.!
but ho remembered the numbers,
and in some way the thing made
an impression on him. Down- p
! town lie met a friend and told 1
him about it. 'Suppose we play j
the numbers just for fun,' he ,,
said to his friend. 'No dreams <j
in mine, old follow,' the friend *
said laughingly. '

of it. She got up the next morning

we take a whirl at the

1 the friend, 'lightning never
strikes in the same place twice.

to try it today?'

dreams in mine.'
"Well, sir, by a remarkable
streak of fortune my friend
played and won again, and he
won about $1,800 on the third
day of betting on the numbers
the old woman had dreamed.
Now here is a thing that actual
ly happened here in New Or
. leans, and to be honest about it
my scepticism on the subject of
dreams was softened a little by
these happenings. 1 knew all

had happened to me, and it is J
no fairy tale. Since that time,
while not professing to believe
' iti dreams, I have yet had more
respect for the extraordinary

hear from time to time."
