Wilson is the Joshua,
Republican presidents have been
playing the role of Moses. For
nearly forty years or more they
have been leading the American
people through the wilderness but ,
will not be permitted to them into

picked out as the Joshua, who shall
lead the nation to victory ever the

They Have No Show.
That our Republican friends have
given up all hope of carrying Mis
souri is evident by the large de
crease in Republican votes at the
August 6th primary and by the
further fact that in 29 counties en
titled to 32 votes in the state legis
lature, they failed to make any
nomination at the last primary.

Let Us Do So.
It will take all of the Ball. Bolte,
Iouchin, Cowherd and Major votes
to redeem Missouri this year and
give the ticket the majority they
should have. Of course it is Demo

reason to complain of the men
nominated, we are all going to get
in line and roll up that majority.
Don't think you can be spared to go

Hilles' Ridiculous Guesses.
Republican Chairman Hilles says

dictions after the primaries in Illi-

count the votes at the November
election, as it counted the delegates

"Oh, my dear," said her uncle,

Judge Rucker Home.
Hon. W. W. Rucker returned
from a visit to his mother and oth

ing been with them since the ad
journment of Congress.
The judge is looking well though
not so well as after completing his
campaign for re-nomination the
judge really seemed to fatten on
Judge tucker is highly optimistic
concerning the outlook for the na
tional Democracy. He says that
all over the east so far as he learn
ed, the Republicans are hopelessly
divided and the Democrats of a!
ilks thoroughly harmonious.
The judge will take the stump in
his district and make a thorough
campaign for everybody on the
Democratic ' ticket from Wilson
down and also put in his best licks
against the adoption of the single

America's Greatest Weekly
The Best Known Newspaper
the United States
Popular in Every State
No Whiskey Advertising
The seventy-eighth year of its ex
istence finds the Toledo Blade more
popular than at any period during
its long and successful career. It
is read each week by more than a
million people. The Blade's field is
national and it goes into every
state and territory in the United
States, thereby giving it an un
questionable right of claiming to be
the greatest national weekly news
paper published in America.
The Weekly Blade is distinctly a
family newspaper. The one object
of its publishers has always been to
make it fit for the American home,
for the fireside, and of interest to
every member of the family. To
fulfill this purpose it is kept clean
and wholesome. The news of the
world is handled in a comprehen
sive manner, and the various de
partments of The Blade are edited
with painstaking care. The House
hold page is a delight to the women
and children; current anairs are
treated editorially without preju
dice; the serial stories are selected
with the idea of pleasing the great
est I number of fiction lovers; the
Question Bureau is a scrapbook of
information; the Farmstead columns
are conducted with the purpose of
giving the patrons a medium for
the exchange of ideas and infor
mation on farm topics. No depart
ment is neglected, but every feat
ure is taken care of with the idea
of making The Blade worth many
times the price of subscription-
dollar a year.
