spare form of Missouri’s chief executive
rose from his place on the platform and
came forward to give formal notification to
Messrs. Bryan and Sewall of their nomina-
tion by the Democratic convention.
When Governor Stone concluded with
the ‘notification of his nomination to Mr.
Bryan, a man began to wave a big Amer-
ican flag over the latter's head. People
jumped to their feet and shouted with a
vim. Cheer followed cheerand for a min-
ute or two pandemonium reigned. The
crowd went wild with enthusiasm and
lung power was drawn on to an alarming
extent. But this demonstration had its
ending in the desire of the people to hear
the speech to which they had been looking
forward so anxiously, and when the man
with the flag came down to where Mr.
Bryan was sitting and fastened the stand-
ard in a corner of the stand, the cheering
ceased and everybody watched with inter-
est while Mr. Bryan helped the banner
waver to fix the staff in place.
When Chairmau Danforth stepped for-
ward and introduced Mr. Bryan men wav-
ed their coats and their hats, while women
fluttered fans and handkerchiefs as only
women can. The band struck up a livelv
air and added to the din.
Mr. Bryan held up his hand for silence.
It was like an incentive to yell. louder.
Mr. Bryan stepped to the front and cen-
ter of the speaker’ tform. In his hand
he held a manusctipt copy of his speech.
His face was pale, but he was cool and
Mr. Bryan read from manuscript but oc-
casionally he dropped the sheets of paper
and spoke earnestly and vehemently with-
out looking at them.
During Mr. Bryan’s speech he was fre-
quently interrupted by cheers of approval.
When in concluding, Mr. Bryan said he
expected the co-operation of all present, a
voice cried : ‘“You have it,”’ and the audi-
ence roared in unison.
The peroration was spoken without a
glance atthe manuscript and for that rea-
son it had greater effect. The closing
words approached in eloquent feeling some
of the telling points in the Chicago speech,
but it was obvious that the wonderful de-
livery was gone temporarily and there was
an unmistakably huskiness in Mr. Bryan’s

Last Sunday morning J. A. Decker met with an
accident that came very near ending his
earthly career. While taking his family out for a
drive the harness broke and incited the horse to
‘run away. It upturned the carriage over a steep
embankment and for a time it was feared that all
of the occupants had been killed. Mr. Decker
was badly bruised,
clothing torn into shreds. His wife was more un-
fortunate as her hip bone was broken and her
head verygeeriously hurt. The baby in her arms
was taken up in a dazed condition but a thorough
examination did not reveal any serious injur-
ies. The mother and child’s escape seems mirac-
ulous as they were both under the carriage with
the wheel almost crushing them down when the
horse fell down causing a sudden standstill.

Tuesday one came over to Reishe’s hotel

The water company and Jake From are
having a time. The story is this—Jake
From has water on his premises that the
water company covets, and to get possession
of the spring is what is causing the trouble—
more trouble than either party anticipated
in the beginning. Last week one day the
water company sent a party of workmen to
build a reservoir on From’s territory and
when Jake heard of it he hurried to the
scene. From scared the workmen off his
territory with all kinds of threats. The lab-
orers reported the attack of the enemy to the
company, J. D. Murray, F. Kurtz and D.
F. Luse, who immediately repaired to the
seat of war but From had taken a defensive
position. The company advanced in a solid
body to the fence that enclosed From’s do-
main, when he demanded a halt. To empha-
size his order he picked up a stone and told
Mr. Murray that ihe would advance a step
further his brains would be knocked out.
Mr. Murray boldly advanced however and
climbed upon the fence, but the others
thought discretion the better part of valour
and they kept out of danger’s way. It looks
very much as though the wator company had
the bulge on From, as he was arrested for
threatening the officials lives, and to settle
Port Matilda Pointers.
