If everybody understood that oil is tiro
-only thing about paint that ivears, there
V would be no sale for cheap ready-mined
paints- A prominent educator wrote us that
~"us friend, a college president, had been
' /-rindled by using on his fine residence a
' -ready mixed. paint advertised as first-class.
Hie asked what was wrong with the paint

- . thoroughly. it was the most miserable lootinsr
thing- yoa ever saw."
There was nothing wrong with the paint
pigments, if they had strong color and
caverlnjr body. But the oil in the paint
vrztst not pure linseed oil. If it had been,
no rain would have "soaked" it, as pure
liasced oil paint does not take up
"Molature. "Waterproof oil clothing" is cloth
/>ated with linseed oil: and no pure linseed
o?X paint will wash off as long as the oil
lasts. You can't rub drypaint on a building

the dry paint. Why mix white lead with

The oil is the mucilage. Yvhea you
seal an envelope what makes it remain
closed. Is it the quality of the paper or the
quality of the mucilage? The durability o:
paint is the pure linseed oilpart of the paint
not the pigments. Pure linseed oil is to paint,
exactly what "all-woolness" is to clothes.
Therefore you don't have to take our
word for the quality of Kinloch Paint. You
put the quality and durability into "Kinloch"
yourself when you mix your own pure% linseed
oil with it. Kinloch Paint is made from
the old time-tried materials used by practical
painters everywhere, and the only difference
between "Kinloch" and any really highgrade
ready-mixed is in our selling it in
paste form, ready to thin with pure linseed
oil. All prepared paint is first ground into a
thick paste similar to "Kinloch," but wo
stop tliore. Thetfeady-mixed paint maker
goes on and adds the oil, (something your
fourteen-year-old boy can do) and the dea.er
and consumer have to pay the ready
raised paint price for that oil, or from
three to four times more than for oil they
know to be pure.

BRYAN'S VIEW OF NOMINATION.
"I have nothing to take back, I have
nothing to withdraw of the things
that I have said against the methods
pursued to advance his candidacy. It
was a plain and deliberate attempt to
deceive the party. The New York
platform was vague and purposely
so, because the advocates of Judge
Parker were trying to secure votes
from among the people who would
have opposed his views had they
known them. * * * The nomina-,
tion was secured, therefore, by crooked
and indefensible methods."?William
Jennings Bryan, in "The Commoner,"
July 13, 1904.
Who Will' Be President?
Some persons do not seem to understand
how to vote in the West
Virginian's guessing contest. It is
really a very simple proposition and
easily understood. On page eight will
be found a coupon which may be used
in sendinor in vnnr ^stimnfe. The
guesses are coming in right along
now, so send yours in before you forget
it. Do not forget the offer to give
a person guesses for getting new
subscribers. Read the offer over
again and send in the guesses.
Right in beauty of design, finish
and price. Come in and be convinced.

DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES.
For Governor?John J. Cornwell.
s- A man; with strong: prejudices and
ss narrow views; a "white mail's party"
Is advocate, who despises fifteen thou
is sand of West Virginia's citizens: one
of very limited means, and unaetpiaint
h cd wit.lt industrial conditions outside
if of Hampshire county, which is bar
u ren ol industries and modern devel
11 opments: a caustic speaker and hitter
ie partisan who lives in a community
v- where Kepubltcaus get very scant
credit or consideration.
For Auditor?V.'. L. Mansfield.
is A well meaning man, editor of a
i. country newspaper in the county of
ii. Wayne. Ho lias not :ljeen in touch
11 with the State's great development
>' by reason ot' liis environment, eonse1
quently ho would have a great deal t.o
learn in trying to ho auditor.
Fcr Secretary of State?W. G. Peterkin.
e A man almost entirely unknown in
d the State, who is not especially fitted
11 for anything, but who is a young lawis
ycr and wanted to be attorney geui,
eral. By a trade and a compromise
d he was switched from his original obis
ject and nominated for secretary of
i- state. He has had comparatively no
experience in business.
For Treasurer?R. S. Carr.
The host known man on the Dcnio;
cratic ticket; a typical Southerner; a
i- man who would come as near making
i public office a private snap us any
one in the State. The business
!- would he done by the boys while
3 Uncle Bob would entertain them with
stories.
. For Attorney General?L. A. Rcymann.
i The won of Ida father and prlnci1
pally known for that roaspn. His
, father is a Republican and a maker
. of a very good kind of beer. The son is
5 a young follow just, out of school, who
t probably was never employed In a
case in Ids life.
; t-or btatc superiiuenaent 01 t-ree
Schools?M. D. Helmick.
i This is probably the most incongruous
nomination of all. Mr. Helmick
. is a back number educationally; Lie
- knows very little about schools or
. school people in West Virginia. He
1 has been in the ministry for some
l years, and is altogether a misfit so
far as (iie State superintendency is
concerned. School people are astonished
at Iris nomination.
<
For Judges of the Supreme Court?
M. M. Cent and H. W. Gilmer.
Judge Dent is a very excellent gentleman
'and has a very good record as
judge; he and Col. Carr seem rather
out of place on a ticket with so many
novices. Mr. GiJmer may be all right
and we hope he is, but he is a
stranger to seven-eighths of the people
of the State.
BACK FROM VACATION.
Back from my summer vacation.
In t.hc noisy old town once more,
Away from the vicious mosquitoes
And the chiggers that sting and bore,
With my neck all raw and blistered
And my nose as read as a beet,
I find that the city is welcome
And that life in town is sweet.
Back from my summer vacation.
Away from the worms that creep,
And the gnats that crawl down my
neckband
And bother me while I sleep;
A fr- t V. rv fllnc a rl ?V.n cni.lni.c
rviai 11 >.'ui iin; ui<io tiiiu liic ojuuviio
And the June bugs that biff and pelt;
I am glad to get back from the country
And the loneliness I have felt.
Back from my summer vacation
And the soggy old stuff to eat.,
Where a restaurant meal is a pleasure
And a table de'hote is a treat,
Where there's something to do besides
grumble
And something to do besides wait;
Where I get my papers each morning
And they're never a whole day late.
Back from my summer vacation,
In the good old town once more.
Afar from the oppressive silence.
To the rush and the rout and roar;
In the city there's something doing,
There's joy in the meet of might
And the soul expands with the struggle
And grows in the shock of fight.
