until near midnight Tuesday, William
Jennings Bryan talked to Oklahomans.
With the same fervor, the devotion to
duty that has endeared Bryan to all
Americans, regardless of party, he
preached the doctrine of reform in pol-
itics, telling the people all along the
line that the hour for redemption is at
hand. In every city and town he vis-
ited the crowds were greater than j

Oklahoma City—Humanity fought its
way into the Auditorium to hear Wil-
liam Jennings Bryan Tuesday nlgtit
and there was more humanity outside
which couldn't fight because there
The crowd was a jam and its num-
bers couldn't be estimated except by
the combined standing and seating ca-
pacity of the big building and that
puts the number at 6,500. There were
nearly that many standing outside
throughout the entire speech.
The Bryan special was scheduled to
get into Oklahoma City at 8:05. Peo-
ple weren't taking any chances on be-
ing late and going without seats and
b.v Bix o'clock most of the seats were
taken. At seven, all were taken and !
at eight, the only way to get in was
to jam in somehow. The thousands
who couldn't get in that way stayed
outside and tried not to feel disap-
Senator VanDeventer of Bartles- I
ville, talked to the crowd while il
would be talked to. But there were
so many wanting to in that his
speech had to be delivered piece meal
while the crushing process went on.
Then, after a while, Kate Barnard got ,
the audience in a good humor after
Tommy Cannon, who acted as mastei
of ceremonies, had made a plea for
slience. While people were trying to
adjust themselves to conditions, two
women in the audience started "Amer-
ica" and the crowd took up the song.
Then someone else started "Nearer
My God to Thee," and that was taken
up. Then it was announced that \
Bryan would be there in five minutes.
The crowd was good natured and
aanused itself as best it could until
by a half
doien policemen, was pushed on the I
stage. Then the first big cheer went

The wife considered the matter, and
the next time her lord began to beat

back in stark amazement, dropped
his hands, and stared at her.

whimpered. "What on earth is the

The following straightforward state-
ment needs no comment to add to
its force and effect. It appears in a
recent issue of the Liverpool Mer-
H. Patterson, of Nutanaj Saskatche-
wan, Canada, when he arrived from
Uverpool, had "Six of us to support,"
| to use his own phraseology, and his
i funds were getting low. He secured
a homestead 32 miles out from Sun-
j durn, and started living on it April
15, 1907. The previous fall he put all
| his money, JKI7, into a shack and lot,
| making sure of a home. As cook and
j caterer in a local hotel he made $75
| a month, and out of this had some
| savings out of which he paid his
j breaking and improvements on the
| homestead. The shack was sold to
| good advantage. Then Mr. Patterson
tells the story after he had removed
j his fumlly to the homestead:
"For the first month life was so
strange and new that I hadn't time to
think of anything, only fixing up our
new home. I was so green' to farm
life that I didn't know the difference
between wheat and oats (I do now)!
Between working out, cropping my
place, and with my gun, we managed
to live comfortably for the three
years, which time was required to put
in my duties. I had accumulated
Quite a stock of horses, cows, pigs,
fowls, and machinery in the three
In October, 1909, I secured ray pat-
ent to my land, so took a few days'
holidays to Saskatoon to locate a
purchased homestead (viz., 12s. per
aero) from the Government. Instead
of getting the purchased homestead.
I secured a half section (320 acres)
on the Saskatchewan River for $25
per acre on easy terms, nine years'
payments with a caBh payment of
$1,000. I mortgaged my lirst home-
stead, obtained chattel mortgages on
my stock, and on December 24th,
1909, took possession; on June 10,
1910, I sold out again for $40 per acre,
clearing, besides my crop (140 acres),
$4,800. 1 also sold my first home-
stead, clearing $1,800 and two Saska-
toon town iots, which we value at
$1,000 each today. We placed all our
capital in another farm (river front-
age) and some trackage lots (60), also
a purchased homestead (river front-
age). I remained as Manager of the
Farm I had sold cn a three years'
contract at a line salary and house,
garden, and numerous privileges.
1 So by the time my three years have
expired, with my investments and the
increased value of my lrontage and
lots, I am hoping to have a clear
profit on my $137 investment of
$50,000. My land doesn't eat any-
thing, and It is nearly all paid for. I
hold a good position (and secure)"—
