nominee To succeed Dillon. Under the
action of the Hepubllrnn State Con- |

to Judge Dillon, but Is not bound to

Washington. July 29.?Ohio Republi?
cans at tlm capita! are Interested In
the withdrawal of Judge Dillon, the
Republican candidate for Governor, In
the pollt'cal possibilities entailed by
bis a lion. The circumstances leading
up to Judge Dillon's step are under?
stood here to bo as follows:
Judge D'Hon sought and received, as
he thought, assurances from the pro
f-ress've faction In the convention
which nominated him that bis nomina?
tion would be acceptable If He got the
majority In th ecohveht'on. He insisted
upon having this assurance, because
?ri the first place, he had bun put for?
ward as a candidate to harmonize nil
He was satisfactory to the "wets"
and the "drys" on the liquor question;
He was acceptable to Methodist and
Catholic, to Hebrew and Gentile, on re?
ligious matters, and he thought he
surely would be acceptable to the two
factions of all who called themselves
Republican His nomination was hail?
ed as an augury of harmony by the
distressful Republicans, who have suf
f. red most ?f the Ills of old Job him?
self In a political way.

Walter I Blown, the Roosevelt leader

Dillon was privately considered to lie a

THE SPHINX AND THE GREAT PYRAMIDS of the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt, constitute one of the seven wonders of the world,
being the biggest things of their kind in all the world. It is interesting to recall that the grains representing the "corn" of the bible,
found in the tombs of the Kings, buried several thousand years ago, have been planted, and have, it is claimed, after the lapse of all these
years, sprouted and grown in certain parts of the world. The big package of Washington Crisps is, likewise, the greatest thing of its kind

are ready to serve. On every package is the unqualified GUARANTEE of the manufacturer that every ingredient in
is of as HIGH QUALITY as the ingredients used in the manufacture of cereal foods of ANY other make RE< iARDLESS OF Tl IF. COST ;
and the further GUARANTEE that Washington Crisps are made under the MOST PERFECT SANITARY CONDITIONS
POSSIBLE TO CREATE, IN MILLS THAT ARE SPOTLESSLY CLEAN, AND BY HIGH CLASS SKILLED WORKMEN.
Washington Crisps, during all the processes of manufacture, from flaking to packing, never touch human hands?everything is done by
