In remarking at a dinner in they wanted very little in last
Pittsburg on the night of Mr.
Taft's inauguration that "he
would rather bo the defeated
candidate of 0,000,000 people than
be president and feel that he
owed it to the powers that cor-
rupt," our champion, Bryan,
gives some signs of distress.
More than four months have
passed since the dreadlul catas-
trophe of Novenib'er, 19Q8, and
there is every reason that for
the sake of his friends, if not for
his own sake. Mr. Bryan would
smile again. Everybody except
Mr. Bryan knows that President
Taft does not owe his election to
'■the powers that corrupt,' but
that on the contrary, he was
~ chosen by an enormous and
stubbornly aggressive majority
of the American people over our
gentle but linn protest, we sup
porting Me. Bryan.
The truth is that the Taft wave

what they did spend might as
well have been saved.
Hoke Smith Reads Bryan Out.
Buffalo N. Y , March 19.- "The
almost unanimous sentiment
from Democrats I have met is
that a new man should lead in
the next contest. Mr. Bryan
must recoguizj the soundness
of this view!"
This utterance by former
Governor Hoke Smith of Georgia
at the G rover Cleveland birthday
dinner given by 'he Democratic
Society of Western New York i J®
here tonight, was greeted with i ^
applause. Governor Smith j j*
spoke on national issues and i y
throughout his address threaded j ^
a plan for adlierauce to the Dem- j
ocratip principles of Seymour, «J

tribute to Cleveland, to whom he I

right, I bought this at
Etiler's Big Store years ago, and it is like
everything else you buy of them. It has no '
wear out to it—but there is one consolation, a
GOOD ARTICLE is always in style.
Oh, I never think of buying anything at
any other store, because I am a very busy
woman, and have no time to study the fash-
ions, and I know when an article comes from
Ehler's that it is all right in quality, style
and price. Besides they carry everything
in clothing for each member of your family,
for men, women and children, and everything
in house furnishings from the kitchen to the
parlor. It is useless to look any further for
an article—if you don t tind it at Etiler s-
you may know it is out of date, and you ve no
business with it in your home.
That reminds me, have you heard of their
Great Easter Sale? It begins Saturday,
March 27, and lasts until Easter Sunday, and
as usual Ehler's is always ready to save you
money just when they know you need tilings
worst. You should see the shower of White
Goods they have on sale at wonderful reduc-
tions, India Linons, Muslins, Lawns, Swisses,
Table Linens, Dress Linens, Embroideries,
Laces, ready-to-wear Underwear and Dresses,
and the snow white Bed Spreads, and pretty
Lace and Swiss Curtains—and the Batten
berg Dove Panels. My! But they have a
host of things in this White Goods Sale. It
would do you good to see the pretty things il
you had no intention of buying!
But aside from the White Goods they
have the swellest lino of Ladies' Tailored
Suits, separate Skirts, fancy and tailored
Waists ever brought into our county. And
have you seen their new Piece Goods in
Wash Goods, Wools and Silks. The elegant
Satin Striped Ginghams, the newest tilings
on the marKet—the bordered Suitings, plain
Suitings with the daintiest braid trimming—
and all dress accessories, pretty Collars, Ja-
bots and Rabats, the newest things in Belts,
Purses, Ribbons—and then if when trading
you are afraid you have forgotten anything
just go over to the bargain counter and here
you will tind a thousand and one things—that
you need—actually need—and these things
are at pricete that any of us can afford to buy,
Hat Pins, Hair Pins, Back Combs, Barettes,
Fancy Pins, Shirt Waist Sets, Cull' Buttons,
Magic Hair Curlers, Cold Creams, Dental
Creams, Talcum Powders, and goodness only
knows what all—But now let me tell you if
you want your husband to look swell—just
buy his clothing at Ehler's. Phew! But the
Brandegee Kincaid & Company's suits sold
by them are beauties! The College Chap
three-piece suit, with its dip front coat, cull*
sleeves, flapped pockets, and peg top trousers
with four inch turn up. The new shades of
gray, green, brown and all the new stripes.
And the Men's furnishings—the latest things
in shirts, ties, suspenders, and the shoes!
Well, their stock of shoes is immense! Do
you know there are a great many things for
us to learn about shoes? and when you get in-
to a stock like this you are learning some-
thing new all the time—one thing I have
learned is that Ehler's Queen Quality Shoes
•wear me longer than any other shoe, but
sister says the E. P. Reed is just the correct
shape for her foot. You see Elilers handle
both these brands, that they may be able to
tit all feet, and of course he Carries the best
„ brands for Men. The Packard and the
Douglas Shoes for Men.

Bruin Too Fond of Crow.
A new version of "eating crow" has
been furnished in Center county. |
Pennsylvania. One evening recently a
farmer of Curtin township set a bear
trap near his home, baiting it with
a piece of meat, as is customary. Aft- (
er the trap had been set a crow,
tempted by the meat, was caught, and
that night a bear happened that way
and ate both the crow and the bait.
The farmer set the trap again next
evening, and on the following morn-
ing the bear was in the trap, having
come back during the night for an
other meal of crow.
