Yost, one of the oldest Re publicans in the city and a leader in that party, was sent out under date of August ;iolh. It will be read with in terest by both Democrats and Repub licans: In an interview today Maj. S. M. Yost, a lifelong Republican, for many 3'ears postmaster here, stated that he had come to the conclusion that Bryan would undoubtedly win in the Presi- ( dential election next November. He , said: "With D. B. Hill and Alton B. Parker both stumping for the common- ! er, the Democratic nominee should £ Cirry New York." i Maj. Yost thinks that sentiment is f growing daily hi Bryan's favor, and : that he will win unless the political • winds change from the present course. 1 Maj. Yost has been a staunch Repub lican all his life, but does not admire Taft and the manner in which he was nominated. He says he is yet unde cided as to which candidate will get his personal vote, although he fully ex pects to determine the question before - the election comes off. He says there are things about Bryan he does not ad- - mire, but that he is undeniably a clean , and sincere man, an able statesman and I a magnetic speaker. j Maj. Yost came here in 18.7, and has ' long been identified with the city's in terests. He is well informed on na-1 tional politics and seldom gives out j opinions without research and a thor ough study of conditions. As to the ■ gubernatorial fight in Virginia, Mr. j Yost firmly believes that Mr. Stuart i will get the nomination. Hicks' September Forecast. A regular storm period is central on ! the rJth, extending from 4th and Bth. Storms that may have been sighted on the gulf regions prior to this period will gain new life and energy during the j Ith to Bth, causing severe visitations | along the south coasts and inland to ward and over the great lakes. Grow-' ing storm conditions will be indicated on the 4th to 6th in western and south-1J crn extremes. During the fith to Bth J , and possibly over the 9lh and 10th c conditions will bring decided Septem- , ber storms to most parts of the couu try. A reactionary storm iteriod is central ' on the 10th, 11th and 12th, having full moon on the 10th. The Bth to loth is at the annual crisis of magnetic an tagenism between the earth and sun. j Within a period of about five days with ihe 10th the central day, equinoctial storms will be natural. Behind these storms, starting in the far Northwest . about the 11th, look for rapid changes to high barometer and much cooler weather, which change will spread , eastward and southward during the , 11th to 15th. A regular storm period covers the 15th to 19th, with moon at last quarter on the 17th. Crisis of this period will fall on the 17th to 19lh. The center of earth's equinox falls on the 22nd, but violent storms are no more liable to fall on or about that date than any other period for weeks before and after. A reactionary storm period runs from the 22nd to 26th and will not reach its culmination before the new moon on the 25th. With the moon on the equa tor on the 2«ith severe electrical storms may bridge the interval and cause a continuance of storm conditions into the month's last period. The 25th is the center of another seisnic period of about five days. A regular storm period begins on the 27th and extends to October 2d, being central on the 29th. As the month goes out low borometer and general storm conditions will be in transit from west to east. By the 29th and ;>oth wide areas of cloudiness and rain will develop bringing in a general, spell of autumnal rain, wind and disagreeable weather. ♦ -. em ►-♦- From Long Glade.
