Mr. Bryan’s Paper, The Commoner Through the columns of The Com moner, Mr. Bryan meets the attacks of those who are opposed to Demo cratic reforms, as well as the clever misrepresentations made by the organs of the “special interests.” As an exponent of the plans and pur poses of the national Democratic ad ministration, The Commoner is of unusual interest to all progressive citizens. Mr. Bryan’s signed ed itorials give a timely discussion of public questions and are interesting and valuable to all students of gov ernmental affairs. It is a big 82 page monthly. Besides supplying the best political and general matter, it has interesting Home, Fashion, Farm, Cartoon and other departments. A carefully prepared report of the work of the various members of the President’s cabinet is especially in teresting to each tax payer. The sub scription price is SI.OO a year.
