Buying paint used to be like the.

marked and sold as "Pure White

and honest paint manufacturers set
about to make paint buying *>afe..
They first adopted a trade mark, the

and put this trade mark, as a guar

about familiarizing the public with

At the formal notification ceremo
nies, Senator Burrows made the ad
dress in behalf of the committee, and
Mr. Sherman spoke in response. Sec
retary Root and other prominent men
also delivered brief addresses.
Senator Burrows and Gentlemen of
the Notification Committee:
Your chairman, speaking for the
committee, has notified me of my
nomination by the Republican nation
al convention held in Chicago in Jun*?
as the party's candidate for Vice
President. As I chanced to be in
Chicago in June I had an inkling of
the convention's action, which was
confirmed bv a warm hearted recep
tion tendered me by my neighbors on
the occasion of my home coming on
July 2. ' This oflBcial notification, how
ever, is welcome and the nomination
you tender me is accepted; accepted
with- the gratitude commensurate
with the great honor conferred ; '. ac
cepted with a full appreciation of
the obligations which accompany
that I mor, an ? honor greater because
my name is linked with that of Wil
liam H. Taft, whom I respect and
esteem highly and wlio approaches
the high office of 7'resident exception
ally well equipped to discharge tho
duties and bear the ' varied and
weighty responsibilities of that ex
alted position. My acceptance could
not be made with honor unless I
were in full accord with the declara
tion of principles adopted", by the
convention. Not only am I in full
and complete acord with my party's
platform, but " I endorse evem state
ment made by Mr. Taft in nis ad
dress of acceptance when notified of
his nomination as the Republican
candidate for President. . * . First,
then, let me say that I am a pro
tectionist. I am sufficiently practical
to value the utility of a fact higher
than the beauty of a theory, and I
am a protectionist because experi
ence has demonstrated that the ap
plication of that principle has lifted
us as ? nation to . a plane of pros
perity above that ocupied by any
other people. .
I especially commend that plank of
our platform which " promises an
early revision of tariff schedules.
That pledge will be fulfilled .hf an
adjustment based in every particular
. upon the broad principle of protec
tion for all American interests; alike
for labor, for capital, for producers
md consumers. The Dingley bill,
when enacted was well adapted to the
then existing 'conditions. The de
velopments of the industrial pros
perity in a decade, which in, volume
and degree have surpassed our most
roseate expectations, ?r?ve' so altered
conditions that in .certain details of
schedules they np . longer in every
particular mete ouT'^ustice to all.
In this readjustment the principles
of protection must and will govern;
such duties must and will be im
posed as will equalize the cost of pro
duction at home and abroad and in
sure a reasonable profit to all Ameri
can interests. . . .
The Republican party believes in
the equality of all men before the
law; believes in granting labor's
every request that does not seek to.
accord rights to one man denied to
another. Fair minded labor ask? \)
more, no less, and approves the

state my position on injunctions than

that no power on earth may br

chant marine and rendering whatevci

President Roosevelt; promises lo con
tinue the work inaugurated during his
administration, to insure to persons
and property every proper safeguard

vided to furnish sufficent inspection
and supervision" and prompt righting
df "every injustice," "discriminaHoll
and wrong. . . .
"Shall the jieople rule?" ia deolar- i
ed by the Democratic platform and
candidate to be "the overshadowing
issue . . . now uuder discussion."
It is no issue. Surely the people shall
rule, surely the people have ruled;
surely " opie do rule. No partj'
rules. The party commissioned bj
the people, is simply the instrument
to execute the people's will, and from
that party which does not obey their
expressed will or which lacks the
wisdom to lead successfully, the peo
ple will withdraw their commission.
For half a century, with but two
exceptions, the people have commis
sioned the Republican party to ad
minister the national government;
commissioned it because its declared
principles appealed to their best
judgment; commissioned it because
the 'cemmon sense of the American
pecple scented danger in thc Demo
cratic policies. Ours always has been
always must be, a government of
the people. That party will, after
March 4 next, execute old laws and
enact new ones as in November it is
commissioned to do. That commis
sion will bc fi om all untrammeled
American electorate. Shame on the
party which, shame on thc candidate
who insults the American people by
suggestion or declaration that a ma
jority of its electorate is venal. Thc
American voter, with rare exception,
in easting his ballot, is guided by
his best judgment, by his desire to
conserve his own and the public weal.
The overshadowing issue of the
campaign really is: shall the adminis
tration of President Roosevelt be ap
proved ; shall a party of demonstrated
capacity in administrative affairs be
continued in power; shall the reins of
government be placed in experienced
hands, or do the people prefer to
trust their destines to an aggregation
of experimental malcontents and the
orists, whose only claim to a histor}'
ts a party name they pilfered.
With a record of four decades of
wise legislation; two score years of
faithful administration ; offering its
fulfilled pledges as a guaranty of its
promises for the future, the Republi
can party appeals to the people and,
with full confidence in their wisdom
and patrotism, awaits thc rendition
of the November verdict.

America's Amazing Agricultu
rHE SOUTH FAR IN THE LEAD
"That the South, With 25,000,000
Population, Is Producing as Much
Value in Agricultural Out-Turn as
the United States With 62,000,000
People Did in 1890, is Qne of the
Amazing FactB of Our History.
Baltimore, Md.-Reviewing Amen
ta's amazing agricultural advance of
ate^years, the Manufacturers' Re?ord
n a recent issue says :
Probably nothing more forcibly
Hnstrates this marvelous change than
;he fact that the value of the agri
cultural products of the South alone,
.vhicii will this year be between $2,
!50,000,000 and $2,500,000,000, will
)e more than the total for the United
States in 1SS0, and about the same
is for the entire country as late as
L890. In 1890, who could have
lared to predict that the value of the
South's farm products of 1903 would
;qual the total for the United States
nl890? That the South, with 26,
100,000 population, is producing as
nuch value in agricultural out turn
is the United States with 62,000,000
>eople did in 1890 is one of the
imaziug facts of our history. Tn
L890 the value of all agricultural
products outside of the South was
^1,596,000,000, or at least $000,000,
H)0 less than what the South alone
viii this year produce.
. The increase in the value of farm
property of $S,000,000,000 between
L900 and 1907 is nearly nine times as
rreat as the aggregate national bank
ng capital of the United States It
s more than one-half as large as the
otal capitalization, bonds and stocks
ncluded, of all the railroads ' in the
Jnited States. It is nearly three
imes as large as the aggregate sav
ngs bank deposits of ?he whole coun
;ry. Think for a moment of the
ncrease, simply seven years' incre
nent, in the value of farm property
leing nine times as great as the total
lational banking capital of the United
States, three times as great as all the
lavings bank deposits accumulated
luring all the past and half as large
ts the entire capitalization of all the
?ailroads in the United States into
vhich the surplus money of the land
las been pouring for over three-quar
ers of a century.
In 1890 the 8,565,000 people en
gaged in agriculture in this country
lgpduced a total of $2,468,000,000, or
m average of $287 per capita. In
L907 the 11,991,000 engaged in agri
mlture produced a total of $7,412,
100,000, or an average of $618 per
?apita. During that period the num
>er of people engaged in agriculture
ncreased by 40 -per cent while the
.aluc of farm products increased by
!00 per cent, and the value of all
farm property increased by 89 per
In the brief period between 1900
ind 1907 the value of farm property
idvanced in value from $20,439,000,
100 to $23,077,000,000, a gain of near
y $8,000,000,000, or 37 per cent,
nough the number of people engaged
n agricultural pursuits increased only
.0 per cent.
A study of facts bearing upon agri
aaltural conditions since 1870 shows
hat in that year the value of all agri
lultural products per capita to those
ingaged in farm pursuits was $326,
vhile from that figure here was a
?apid decline to $286 in 1880 and dur
ng the next 10 years the er capita
vas practically stationary, as the av
erage in 1890 was only $287. If re
iable figures were available, they
vould show a marked decline between
1890 and 1896, because it was during
hat period that the agricultural in
erests reached their most acute stage
rf poverty. lu those years farm pro
tects, not only in the South, hut
hroughout the country, were greatly
lepreSsed, selling in many cases be
ow the cost of raising. Farm lands
ikewise steadily depreciated in value.
3y 1900, however, there h sd come a
-reat change, due to the advance be
wcon 1897 and 1900, and in the latter
rear the vainc of farm products per
apita was $451, a gain of $164 per
apita, or about 57 per cent, campar
d with 1890. Since 1900 this gain
las continued uninterruptedly, ris
ng in 1905 to $558 per capita, in
.906 to $579 and in 1907 to $618. Sec
-etary of Agriculture Wilson csti
catcs the total value of this year's
arm products at $3,000,000,000 or a
?aili of about $600,000.000 over
.907. Accepting Mr. Wilson's fig
ires as correct though we believe that,
hey will prove to be too small, the
?er capita production will show an
ither rapid advance this year.
In 1S90 to 1906 the increasing pov
xly of the fa rm el's of all sections,
lue to low prices, was the subject
if almost universal discussion. Con
Miners of farm products were then
inying at a lower cost than they lind
.ver known before. But the produc
l?S, Hie farmers of the land, were in
lire poverty. With the increase in
nanufacturing during the last ten
.ears, and with thc development of
ailroads and the large increase in thc
lumber of their employes, making a
rreat gain in the number of consum
irs of farm products and the gradual
slimination of the cheap lands of the
Yest by settlements and the flood of
.old pouring into the world's chan
icls of trade, we have had a combi
lation of circumstances which have
inited to bring about a much higher
ange of values. The consumer of
arm products is no longer rejoicing
n the low prices which prevailed 12
?r 15 years ago. The farmer is now
laving his inning and though this
?ondition works a hardship upon
nany consumers, it is a great bless
ng to the country at large. ^It should

THE ENGLISH TEA-HABIT.
Hov/ An American Business Marj
Tried to Overturn a British
A writer in Everybody's Magazine
tells the story of the collision cf an
American business man with the Eng
lUh tea habit. He had gone to Lon
don as the manager of one of the
biggest enterprises in which American
money is invested. He was formally
introduced to all his heads of depart
ments on the first day he went to the
offico. After everybody had strolled
away and he had turned to his desk,
.a small clerkly-looking person ap
proached him and said: "Please, sir,
! wish to know If we can have" some
new tea rings."
"Tea rings?" said the manager;
"what-in the name of tho Thames Em
bankment are tea rings?"
"Rings we put on tho stove when
wo make cur tea, sir. Thank you."
"When you make your tea?"
"Oh, yes, sir; we have our tea reg
ularly every afternoon. Thank you.'
The manager looked into the tea
business. He found the clerk was
right. The whole office force quit
work in the middle .of the afternoon
and drank tea. The proposition did
not appeal to his American mind, so
he Issued an order stopping the tea
drinking. Thore was a wild protest
""Here was this American overturning
the precedents of centuries. Here
was a man who dared to deprive tho
Britons of their tea. The manager
held out for a month and then capitu
lated, fer his board of directors stood
with the clerks. Tho directors drank
tea too. He rescinded the order,
bought tho new tea rings, and kept
tab on the amount of gas used In
brewing this necessary beverage. He
discovered that the tea-thirst of the
clerks in his offices cost the company
for gas used to brew it $385 a year.
A Gentle Hint.
Senator Fulton at his annual Ore
gon salmon dinner In Washington,
told a tipping story.
"In Astoria," he said, 'lhere used to
be an old fisherman who brought mo
the first of every month a present of
a splendid salmon from his master. I
always gave the old fisherman a tip.
"But one roorniuig I was very 'busy
and when the old man brought the
Mah I thanked him hurriedly, and for
go'tlng his tip bent over my desk
again. He hesitated a moment, then
cleared his throat and "said:
"Senator, would ye he so kind as
to put it in wrltin' that ye didn't give
me no ?Mp this time, or my wife'll
think I've went and spent it on rum."
Increase in Lunacy.
Within tho last half century there
has been a remarkable increase of
lunacy in ireland. In 1901 there were
25,050 lunatics In Ireland, or one In
every 179 of the population. In 1851
there Tvere only 350 in the entire
county Antrim and Belfast, hut to
day there are 2,300, an increase of
1,950. In 1881 the percentage of lun
atics per 10,000 of the population in
England was 30.4, In Scotland 34, and
in Ireland 30.5. Last year the fig
ing, and perhaps this is not a mat
ures were: England 40.8 per 10,000
of the population: Scotland, 45, and
Ireland 56.2.-Boston Herald.

li ? WOMAN'S WORK
LYDIA E. PINKHAM
Nature and a woman's work com
I bined have produced the grandest
remedy for woman's ills that tho
world has ever known.
In the good old-fashioned days of
our grandmothers they relied upon
the roots and herbs of the field to
cure disease and mitigate suffering.
The Indians on our Western.
Plains to-day can produce roots and
herbs for every ailment, and cure
diseases that baffle thc most skilled
physicians who have spent years in
the study of drugs.
From the roots and herbs of tho
field Lydia E. Pinkham more than
thirty years ago gave to the women
I of the world a remedy for their pe
culiar ills, more potent and effica
cious than any combination of drugs.
Lydia E. Finkham's Vegetable
Compound is now recognized as the
standard remedy for woman's ills.
Mrs. Bertha Muff, of 516 KC. St.,
Louisiana, Mo., writes:
" Complete ' restoration to health
means so much to me that for the sake
of other suffering women I am willing
to make my troubles public.
"For twelve years I had been suffer
ing with tho worst forms of female ills.
During that time I had eleven different
i physicians without help. Ko tongua
am tell what I suffered, and at times I
could hardly walk. About two~years
ago I wrote Mrs. Pinkham for advice.
I followed it, and can truly say that
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound and Mrs. Pinkham's advice re
stored health and strength. It is
worth mountains of gold to suffering
What Lydia E. Pinkham's Yegc-*
table Compound did for Mrs. Muff,
