Mr. Bryan and the Democratic party were
responsible for at least two years of
fighting In the Philippines, which would
have been unnecessary In the absence of
opposition in this country.
The personal demonstration of Mr.
Taft's capacity as a campaigner, added
to the positive announcements he made
In his numerous speeches, constituted
an Important epoch In the Republican
Talks Clear Across Ohio.
Mr. Taft, who Is comfortably en
sconced tonight at the home of his
brother. C. P. Taft. began the day with
an address to the veterans, who are
quartered at the soldiers' home at San
dusky. He talked patriotism and not
politics to the veterans and was cor
dially received. Then came the prin
cipal speech of the day to an audience
which filled the Sandusky opera-house.
At 1:40 o'clock the start was made In a
special for Cincinnati. Ten minutes
later at Castelia, the candidate re
ceived not only the cheers of the popu
lace of Castelia, but a huge bouquet of
garden flowers tossed to him on the
rear of his car by a crowd of children.
Short speeches were made at Cas

with each other for the biggest crowds
of the day and each was expressive of
enthusiasm. Red fire and torches

Cincinnati was reached at nearly 9
o'clock, an hour later than scheduled.
The Taft family was driven directly to
the residence of Charles P. Taft. from
where the campaign of the month of
September will be conducted.
The principal effort of the day of the
candidate was made at Sandusky. This
speech was preceded by addresses by

.Kiefer's Shot at Bryan.
Representative Kiefer. the- first
speaker, took a parting shot at W. J.
Bryan by declaring:
"Yes. the people rule everywhere ex-,
cept In those states of the Union where
Democracy Is completely dominant."
General H. C. Corbln followed with.
a final exhortation for political energy
after which ex-Governor Myron T. Her
rlck spoke against a Government guar-,
antee of bank deposits.
Mr. Taft. In the beginning of hat
speech, referred to the panic of laafc
year. Confidence, he said, was a plant
of slow growth. The people of the coun
tryfarmers, laborers, capitalists were
all In the same boat. The investment of
money was. he said, necessary for the re
turn of prosperity and confidence.
He not only ridiculed Mr. Bryan's claim
to be the heir or the father of the Roose

produce stylish garments at popular prices
Manufacturers anxious to have their goods strongly represented in our suit sec

We have 1,50 suits in the style here illustrated, which we are going to sell at
this sale for $24.75. This is by far the best suit we have ever offered at this
low price. It has the style and shape of the high-priced models, and is care
fully tailored. We know of suits being sold this season at $35 that are not the
equal of this one in any particular. We wish we had ten times the number, as
every one would be picked up at this sale, and every purchaser would be a
more than satisfied customer.
The suit above mentioned was sketched from life, and the graceful cut is plainly
shown in the illustration. It is made of broadcloth, in pretty shades of blue, brown
and green. The coat is semi-fitted and has the new slashes at the sides and back,
trimmed with wide folds of satin and buttons with satin centers. The skirt is the
latest gored model with wide fold at the bottom.
Another very stylish suit at this price is made of broadcloth, strictly tailored,
with plaited skirt and long semi-fitted, single-breasted coat. The lapels of, the coat
are inlaid with satin matching the broadcloth in color, and the handsome woven satin
buttons ornamenting the lapels and back of the coat are also of the same shade. The
lining in both these suits is of an especially durable quality of taffeta.
