A State Jour nal reporter went clear to Hoisington to get the speech and when he arrived ho found that the residents lived so far "in the backwoods" that they hadn't even heard of Bristow's coming.4 Thi3 seemed rather aueer to the reporter, as Mr. Bristow is a man of considerable prominence politically throughout the United States having served as fourth assistant postmaster general and com missoner of Panama as well as being a very promising candidate for the United' States Senate. On finding his meeting had not been advertised Mr. Bristow was much in censed, but, being a newspaper man himself, he at once looked up Hoising- ton's o...

Then he was defeated by the old party that asked another trial, only four years later to be re-elected for four years more.

Vincent is an artist that is, he calls himself one; mis friends call him "a dabbler In art." He doesn't really go in for it seriously, you know, but he did little sketches of cows and that sort of thing rather well, I fancy.
