Washington Letter.
Have you noticed the new
Washington letter appearing reg
ularly in these columns?
If you are not reading them you
should begin at once to do so. Our
Washington correspondent is
George Clinton, who is a close per- I
sonal friend of the president and
various cabinet members, sena
tors and congressmen. No other
newspaper correspondent stands
higher at Washington thanGeorge
Clinton, and his letters are by
far the best that we have ever
read and had the pleasure of of
fering to our readers.

portant transactions of congress,

who are making things transpire,
and his letters are always intere
sting and timely. They are strict
ly non-partisan, and all the more
This unusually strange feature is
only one of many that this paper
contains and we promise our rea
ders some especially attractive
features and special articles dur
ing the year 1912.
