DEMocitATicclubs aflord this Inspl
ration for the patriotic young man of
the United States, who believes In sus
talnlug and building up his own great
country. The Demooratic idea and
teaching opposes everything Ameri
can. It draws Its nwln Inspiration
from the British School of economies.
It opposes, as a rule, the Interests of
our country and would build up,
enrich, give prosperity aud power to
other nations. Republicans, on the
other hand, In their teaching appeal
directly to the patriotic youug man's
love of country, and membership In
Republican clubs h an Incentive to
patriotism. The Republican party
lias maintained the glory aud great
ness of the country, while Democracy
is constantly opposing all great na
tlonal Interests and projects, and lends
Its sympathy to the country's enemies
aud opponents. t Is the party of
obstruction, and In thirty years has
promulgated no Idea that has been a
success, for the advancement of the
country. The patriotic young man

WitKBSBABiiE, Fa., June 21. Barney
Searfoss, who tins n farm and hotel nt tha
foot ot Five-Mile-Mountain, five or six
miles back In tlio wilderness from Laurel
Eun, relates u startling tale that may loud
to the solution of tho mystery surround
ing the disappearance of little Anna Fred
ericks. Mr. Searfoss says that about three
weeks ago a black bear of unusual sizo.l
weighing, he judges, 500 pounds, ap
peared on the mountain near Ins houso.
A brown bear is no uncommon oblect
back there, but a black one Is very rare.1
A week ago last Tuesday, or just one
week before the little girl was lost, this
bear killed and carried off from Mr.
Searfoss' farm a full grown calf. Ho
and nnother man started out to hunt the
bear. They found the remains of the
calf, but the bear escaped them.
Xurce days later tho bear was seen at a
point between Five-Mile Mountain and
Laurel Run, or within three miles of
tho spot where tho littlo girl was lost.
It is therofaro possible, and it is believed
by many, that the little girl, wondering
about on tho mountain-side, encountered
tho fierce animal and was killed and do
oured. Several parties of armed men with
Vunds will start out In different dlrec-'
.Ions this afternoon and thoroughly ox
lore the wholo mountain territory.

ofllcers responsible for the city's loss,
while confessing that ho loaned to tha
bank the money of tho city and of tha
Stato to help them out of difficulty. Al
lowing his explanation and reasoning to
be correct, tho balance for which he is
personally responsible Is very small. Ha
answers the question as to tha where
about s of tho missing million of money
