The maids of old greeted Saul and David on tho return from their victorious campaigns with the declaration that "Saul hath slain his thousands and David his ten thousands." Today the Republican party of the United States greets Taft, Roosevelt and LaFollette as its leaders, with the declaration that "While Taft has been the friend of thousands and LaFollette of his ten thousands, that Roosevelt has been the guaraian of millions." Aside from the fact that Col. Roosevelt is the only man whose candidacy could unite the warring factions of his party, and cause the insurgent and the standpatter to lie down as the lion and the leopard, the policies for which he stands has been well written. The entire paper was well ed ited and the Mechanical part well executed. Its editor, S.S. Elam. has the correct idea of what constitutes a readable newspaper.
