Atlanta, Ga, D,c. 9. The itin
erary for the lecture tour of Hon.
William J Bryan, though not posi
tively fixed, is practically arranged.
Mr. Alexander Comstock, who has
entire charge of arranging the tour,
I ops spent a busy week of it t hn
headquarters in the Kimbal house,
It has been definitely decided to
begin the tour from thia city. At

Bryan's mi'ial lecture. I: h prob

been decided upon definitely

From Atlanta Mr. Bryan will go

To questions , regarding - the re
muneration that Mr. Bryan was to
receive, Mr. Comstock declined to
reply, saying that the terms pf the
contract were pj-ivate; but, from re
liable sources, it is learned that'the
much heralded press report of $50,
000 for fifty lectures is below the
mark; Mr. Bryan gets more than
thi. The figure is suuh a handsome
one than Mr. Bryan's many disap
pointed admirers may take some con
eolation in the fact that before the
dawn of the coming inaaural day
their defeated but not vanquished
champion will have earned an
amount almost equal to the yearly
salary of th President of the United
States. This amount will place Mr.
Bryan, who is now a poor man, in
sufficiently independent circum-
. i i l in
stances to enable mm ro oevoce uia
time and labor to the cherished
ciuse of bi-niera'.lism. Press Visitor.

; - Electric Bftters.
Electrio "Bittera , is ' a medicine
suited fbrny season; but perhaps
more generally needed, when the
languid exhausted feeling prevails,
when the liver is torpid and slug
gish and the need of a tonic and
alterative is felt. A prompt use of
this medicine has often averted
long an 1 perhaps falal bilious fevers
Nu medicine will act more surely in
counteracting and freeing the system
from the malar- poison. Headache
indigestion, constipation, dizziness
