Mr. Bryan's Paper, The Commoner
Through the columns of The Commoner
Mr. Bryan meets the attacks
of those who are opposed to demo- !
cratic reforms, as well as the clever
misrepresentations made by the organs
of the "special interests." As an
exponent of the plans and purposes of
the national democratic administration,
The Commoner is of unusual interest
to all progressive citizens. Mr.
I Bryan's signed editorials give a timelly
discussion of public questions and
i are interesting and valuable to all students
of government affairs. It is a'
big 32 page monthly. Besides supplying
the best political and general matter,
it has interesting home, fashion,
farm, cartoon and other departments.
A carefully prepared report of the
work of the various members of the
president's cabinet is especially in
teresting to eacn tax payer, ine suuscription
price is $1.00 a year.
Many of our readers are already
Commoner subscribers; many others
may desire to be. To make it convenient
as well as inexpensive for our
readers to send subscriptions to The j
Commoner, we have arranged with Mr.
Bryan to furnish his paper to our
readers to send subscriptions to The
Commoner, we have arranged with Mr.
Bryan to furnish his paper to our
readers, at a special low rate. Only '
$2.00 pays for a full year's subscription
to this paper and a full year's
subscription to 'The Commoner. If
already a subscriber to either paper

Columbia, Nov. 8. Mr. R. M. McCown,
the present secretary of State

his present position for several terms
with credit to 'himself and satisfaction
to the people of the State and it is not
thought that he will have any opposition.
