WILL HISTORY BE REPEATED?
THE republican party is an outgrowth of the old
Whig Party. Id convention assembled at Albany,
New York, that party adopted a resolution condemn-
ing the action of President Van Buren and the ad-
ministration in dictating to the democratic convention
the nomination of Lewis and Cass, and the adoption
of certain planks in the platform.

Taft's grand stand play for an anti-injuntion

It appeared as if he were saying to the convention—

No! Relief does not lie in the Republican party, Tins pretty story is told by the Nebraska City

her steps she said very kindly : 'I beg your pardon,
my little fellow. I am very sprry that I ran against
yov.' The little fellow was wlioly amazed; he looked
at tbe lady a moment and then taking off his tattered
cap, made a graceful bow and said, as his face lit up
with a smile: 'You have my pardon miss, and ye're
welcome to it. And say, the next time you run ag'in
me, ye kin knock me clean down and I won't say a
word.' After the lady had passed on, the boy said
to a companion : 'I say Jim, it's fine to have some-
body asking your pardon, ain't it?"

Tomorrow is the Fourth and everybody should
celebrate. They should also sing praises of Oklaho-
ma, the 4<Sth star.
Wm. J. Bryan will be nominated at the conven-
tion at Denver Tuesday, and elected by an overwhelm-
ing vote in November.
Everybody has a glad hand for tbe man who
boosts his town, while they pay no attention to the
man who is continually trying to run the town down.
Pay no attention to tbe knocker. He amounts to
nothing, and should be overlooked. What we need
in Lexington is some ttore good, sound boosters.
