Two Modern Prophets.
W. J. Bryan's Vision.
I can conceive of a Rational
destiny surpassing the glories of
the present and the past—a des-
tiny which meets the responsibil-
ities of today and measures up
to the possibilities of the future.
Behold a republic, resting secure-
ly upon the foundation stones
quarried by revolutionary patriots
from the mountain of eternal
truth-a republic applying to
practice and proclaiming to the
world the self-evident proposi-
tions that all men are created
equal; that they are endowed by
their Creator with inalienable
rights; that governments are in-
stituted among men to secure
these rights, and that govern-
ments derive their just powers
from the consent of the govern-
ed. Behold a republic in which
civil and religious liberty stimu-
late all to earnest endeavor and
in which the law restrains every
hand uplifted for a neighbor's in-
jury—a republic to which every
citizen is a sovereign, but in
which no one cares or dares to
wear a crown.
Behold a republic standing
erect while empires all around
are bowed beneath the weight of
their own armaments—a repub-
lic whose flag is loved while oth-
er flags are only feared. Behold
a republic increasing in popula-
tion, in wealth, in strength and
in influence solving the problems
of civilization and hastening the
coming of an universal brother-
hood-a republic which shakes
thrones and disolves aristocracies
by its silent example and gives
light and inspiration to those who
sit in darkness. Behold a repub-
lic gradually but surely becoming
the supreme moral factor in the
world's progress and the accept-
ed arbiter of the world's disputes
—a republic whose history, like
the path of the just, is as the
shining light that shineth more
and more unto the perfect day.

Robert G' Ingersoll's Vision.
A vision of the future rises
1 see our country filled with
happy homes, with firesides of
content—the foremost land of all
I see a world where thrones
have crumbled and where kings
are dust. The aristocracy of idle-
ness has perished from the earth.
I see a world without a slave.
Man at last is free. Nature's
forces have by science been en-
slaved. Lightening and light,
wind and wave, frost and flame,
and all the secret, subtle powers
which no exile sighs, no prisoner
mourns; a world on which the
gibbit's shadow does not fall; a
world where labor reaps its full
rewasd; where work and worth
go hand in hand; where the poor
girl trying to win bread with the
needle—the needle that has been
called "the asp for the breast of
the poor"-is not driven to
the desperate choice of
crime or death, of suicide or
shame. I see a world without
the beggar's outstretched palm,
the miser's heartless, stony stare;
the piteous wail of want, the liv-
id lips of lies, the cruel eyes of
I see a race without disease of
flesh or brain—shapely and fair,
the married harmony of form
and function-and, as I look, life
lengthens, joy deepens, love can-
opies the earth; and over all, in
the great dome, shines the eter-
nal star of human hope.-1 he
Billions in Life Insurance.
The vast number of persons
interested in life insurance is in-
dicated in the statement that the
life insurance now in force in the
United States and Canada aggre-
gates about $20,000,000,000. The
policies which add up to this im-
mense total vary large sums, but
the great majority of them have
been issued to persons of
moderate means who cannot af-
ford to risk payment of premium
money to weak and unreliable
companies. Fortunately, the lead-
ing life insurance organizations
are very prosperous and have am-
ple reserves, so that their respon-
sibility is unquestioned, while
they meet all obligations prompt-
ly and without raising mere tech-
nical points. The policy holders, |
therefore, justly feel that they 1
have done the safe thing in se-'
Sunday was the anniversary of
our big cyclone of 1912, when ev-
erybody hugged about the mouths
of the 'fraid holes and then dart-
ed in about dark and saved their
bacon, because the big noise came
along about 9 p.m. This is also
the day that L. L. Reeve cele-
brates his birthday. Last year
the festivities at his house were
somewhat clouded by the appear-
a nee of the monster that made
every little and big creature hunt
his hiding hole. Most everybody
forgot about his coming-to-earth
that day, for the most of us be-
lieved we were fixing to leave it.
However, Mr. Reeve had a pret-
ty day Sunday, and Mr. Ed Broth-
ers, wife and daughter, Miss
Faye, and Dr. and Mrs. F. C
Holmes, of Mangum, were here
to help partake of the splendid
repast. There were many splen-
did gifts there for Mr. Reeve,
who has reached that point in
life that a young girl thinks is
the place to stop telling her age.
He looks thirty-five, but reliable
witnesses say he is a little past

John D. Terry also celebrated
his birthday Sunday. Last year
it was broken slap, dab, right in
the middle by the appearance of
the cyclone and girls and boys
beat it for the storm caves about
like troops retire in action after
the battle is so hopelessly lost
that all you have left to take care
of is your individuality. John
had a fine dinner given him at
the home of Jas. Guess and wife.
Mrs. Guess is his sister. Now,
it is not hard for us to tell John a
age, as we were working for
Dock down in Texas, when John
discovered America. Three
bright little girls had come to
bless the home, but no boy was
there to be king of the realm.
Dock was late getting down to,
the printing office that morning.
When he arrived he was so hap-
py that we concluded that the un-
usual hilarity was caused by an
innate desire to raise our wages.
But, imagine our surprise to
know that it was a boy baby, and
not us, that- he was mostly in
terested in. That was just, twen
ty years ago last Sunday, John.

A Toast to Woman.
"I propose a toast to a woman.
To be drunk, not in liquor of any
kind, for we should never pledge
a woman in that which may
bring her husband reeling home
to abuse where he should love
and cherish, sends her sons
to a drunkard's grave and her
daughters to a life of shame. Oh,
no, not in that, but rather in the
life giving water, pure as her
chastity, clear as her intuitions,
bright as her smile, sparkling as
the laughter of her eyes, cheer-
ing aa her consolation, strong
and sustaining as her love-in

the crystal water I would drink
to her that she would remain
queen regnant to the empire she
has already won, grounded deep
as the universe in love, built up
and exercised in the homes and
hearts of the world; I would
drink to her, the full-blown flow-
er of creation's morning, of
which man was but the bud and
blossem, to her who in childhood
clasps our little handa and teaches
us to lisp the first sweet prayer
to the Great-all-Father, who
comes to us in youth with goj
counsel and advice, who in
