Catarrh of the I
For many years it has been supposed that
Catarrh of the Stomach caused indigestion I

opposite. Indigestion causes catarrh. Re- E

mucous membranes lining the stomach and y
exposes the nerves of the stomach, thus caus- E

the juices of natural digestion. This Is y
called Catarrh of the Stomach.

Hearst Bevives Faith and Hope
In Tre Democracy
Vigorous and Fearless Editor of Seven
Great Democratic Newspapers Sustains
Principles of Conservatism and Justice
In American Government and Combats
By the Hon. JOHN TEMPLE GRAVES
The movement in favor of W. R.
Hearst for president is founded on the
essentials of Democratic tradition and
The Democratic party in its incep
tion, mission and. history has been a
party of the people. Its work and its
record have been one of supreme consid
eration for the rights and interests of
great bodies of citizens as opposed to
the privileges of class or to the favorit
ism expressed by legislative enactment
for the few.
The reason why Mr. Hearst has de
veloped a strength so remarkable and
so sustained in the ranks of this great
party is because of the fact that he,
above all the men now active in jour
nalism or in politics, has been con
sistently and vigorously true to these
traditions and to these ideals.
Vigorous, Eloquent, Successful.
Without a break within the last
decade and with all the combined
forces of his great newspapers, scat
tered in different sections of the re
public, he has been the vigorous, elo
quent and in most instances the suc
cessful chanspion of the rights of the
many against the few. He has fought
corruption, he has opposed extrava
gance, he has combated the greed of
syndicates and the selfish propositions
It is the force of this record, which
has had no change or variation, that
has endeared the editor of the seven
Democratic newspapers to the hearts
and fixed him in the confidence of the
people of this country.
More than this, the strength of the
Hearst movement is in the magnetic
and rallying force of definiteness
against uncertainty. He came to the
front in a period of uncertainty, de
moralization and general Democratic
depression. While other leaders, how
ever loyal and however interested, were
dangling their plumes and holding their
tongues in uncertainty and discourage
ment, the young and vital editor of
seven Democratic newspapers struck
boldly out in behalf of the traditional
principles of his party. Without a
note of hesitation or uncertainty he
rallied the fainting spirits of a dis
couraged Democracy and inspired the
rank and file of his party with new
faith and new hope in the ultimate tri
umph of principles which had found a
champion bold, clear, definite and elo
It Is the old, old story-whenever a
mass is demoralized the one clear and
definite spirit in it finds the opportunity
in seizing the reins of authority In the
sublime mastery of his own purpose
and of his own clearness and rallies
the multitude about the one man who
sees things clearly and dares to do
N~o Factional Candidate.
Mr. Hearst has a definite strength in
almost every state in the Union and
stronger than that of any individual
candidate suggested by any faction of
the Democratic party, and in most of
the states of the Union stronger than
the forces of all other candidates com
It is no reflection on the merits, capac
ity or the service of these old and hon
ored naines in'Democratic annals that
this young and vital figure of Journal
ism and politics should have gone so
fast and so far to the front. They are
doubtless as true and as loyal and as
capable as he, but he has had the cour
age and the clearance of initiative.
The clarion notes he has been sounding
for the last six years logically and In
evitably have rallied the Democratic
host around him.
Unless I am greatly mistaken, and
unless all the political signs of the
times are at: fault, the early primaries
of the spring will register a confidence
In William Rarndolph Hearst as a na
tional leader which will be an inspir
ing augury of the Democratic success
In the November election.
With the ranks of labor for him al
most as a unit, with the conservative
American people looking to him with
confidence and hope, with the sound
business interests of the country com
pelled by his own record and his own
immense vested interests to respect
him, and with the magnificent adminis
tration of his journalistic eiluipment to
sustain and diffuse his ideas, William
Randolph Hearst is at this moment
easily the most formidable candidate
for the leadership of the Democratic
party in the next national election.

Abner Stone had lived "Inland" all
his days and knew all there was~to be

at the seashore he was introduced to
shad and asked how he liked it.
"Well," said the old farmer, with a
brave attempt at a smile, "I calc'late I

WOMAN'S PEN PORTRAIT.
Helen V. Gou ar. Noted American
Writer. Dencribes William
In these days. when much is being
written about leaders in national life, a
woman's estim::te of prominent indi
viduals is always apropos. Helen M.
Gougar, who has met nearly all of
America's noted men and who has
written numerous interesting stories
and interviews, published the following
in the Lafayette (Ind.) Call:
"Who is William Randolph Hearst?
"I will answer as I know the man.
"Mr. Hearst is forty-one years old.
"le was born in San Francisco.
"He is the only child of the late
United States Senator George Hearst
and Phebe A. Hearst.
"His ancestors were of North Caro
lina and Virginia stock, his mother be
ing a descendant of the Randolphs of
Virginia. His mother is noted for her
great charities, having endowed the
University of California.
"He is a most devoted son and co
operates heartily with his mother in
business and benevolent enterprises.
"le was educated 'In the public
schools of San Francisco and in Har
"He is a man of fine physique, robust
health, indomitable energy and great
executive ability. He Is a 'business
man' in every sense of the word.
"He Is exceedingly temperate in hab
its, never gambles or races horses, but
is a devotee of the automobile. He
once owned a yacht, but during the
Spanish-American war it was fitted up
as a cruiser at his expense, and he pre
sented it to the government, then en
listed himself as a private in the war
and risked his life on the firing line
"In April. 1903, he married Miss Milli
.cent Willson of New York. There is
a charming romance connected with
this marriage. Miss Willson was a
poor girl. Mr. Hearst met her and fell
desperately in love with the vivacious
miss. His affection was reciprocated.
He requested her parents to put her in

"Mr. Hearst is a strict moralist and
holds women in high esteem.
"His charities are unbounded. Ev
ery winter he furnishes free coal, food
and ralment to thousands of the suf
fering poor of the tenement districts
of New York, which city Is his pres
ent residence. He sent out three re
lief trains-one from New York, - an
other from Chicago and another from
San Francisco -- and hurried supplies
to the Galveston sufferers. He gave
large sums for the relief of the Jews
in Russia; also to the victims of the
St. Pierre volcano district.
"As a newspaper nan he has had a
remarkable career. He understands
the business in every detail, from set
ting type to - editorial writing and
business management. His first ven
ture was the San Francisco Examiner,
which he took when it was almost de
funct. Hie put life and enterprise into

of any newspaper on the western coast
He owns the Los Angeles Examiner,
Chicago Examiner, a morning paper,
and the Hearst Chicago American, an
evening paper, the latter having the
largest circulation of any Chicago
daily. In New York he owns and runs
the New York American, the Evening
Journal and Das Morgen Journal.
"He is a devoted advocate of the
principle of 'equal rights for all; spe
cial privileges for none.' He is an
aggressive foe of the new form of hu
man slavery known as 'trusts.' -
"He prevented the waterworks of
New York from going into the bands
of a few monopolists known as the
Ramapo robbers. He smashed the Ice
rust of New York at an expense of
$250,000 to himself, and the babies of
the tenement districts call him 'blessed.'
He killed the food trust and is now
locked In deadly embrace with the coa]
trust, at the head of which is Mr. Baer,
who claims that the Almighty and he
are in partnership to rob the firesides
of America in the Interest of this most
"Doubtless If he is nominated for
president on the Democratic ticket he
would cause these combinations to
tremble in their boots.
"With such a man for candidate on a
wise and conservative platform the
Democratic party will doubtless make
a lively campaign that will put metal
In Republican ranks."
Selling and Buying.
The department of commerce and
labor recently published the statement
that the average cost of living In Amer
Ica has Increased 16 2-3 per cent. This
statement is based undoubtedly on
wholesale market quotations.
Since Nov. 1, 1903, there has been an
average reduction of wages throughout
the manufacturing .centers of the east
of 10 to 20 per cent Flour and other
foodstuffs have Increased in price since
the same date.
The price of newspapers in the great
cities has been reduced two-thirds In
ffteen years. The cost of producing
them has Increased. "Notwithstanding
these conditions," says William Ran
dolph Hearst, "my papers pay hand
some profits, and wages are higher and
the hours of toll reduced."
