Mr. Berry is not a particularly strong candidate
for governor of Pennsylvania. He made a good
record as State treasurer, but he has been for
years a chronic seeker for office. His pronounced
temperance views barred him from the Demo

The nomination of State Senator Grim as the
Democratic candidate has been received with much
disfavor and the dissatisfied Democrats will rally
to the support of Berry. They will be joined hy
the dissatisfied Republicans, but the Berry canvass
will probably make heavier inroads on the Demo
cratic party than on the Republican.

Mr. WlUon was condemning tpe proposed law to Im
prison for a year any person arrested twice for drunk
enness. He resumed;
"A drummer attended a Quag temperance lecture one
night. The audience was enthusiastic. It cheered every
point that the lecturer made. Yet the lecturer had a
red nose and a shaky hand, while an unpleasant odor
of alcohol made the air of the hall heavy.
"'Are they all teetotalers here?' the drummer whia
pered to a neighbor, suspiciously.
"'Yes. sir.' was the reply; 'all strict teetotalers—be

Representative Cordell Hull of the Fourth Tennessee

"You tell these people," said Hull, "that you'll show
them how to build good roads so that they can get
their corn out to market."
At the first meeting place the good roads expert said
to the constituents:
"My friends. I'm going to show you how to build such
roads that you an get your corn out."
"Well, stranger." drawled one of the Tennesseeans,
