WILSON TO BE NOTIFIED AUG. 7
Will Sound Keynote of Campaign in
Speech of Acceptance
Seagirt, N. J.—Governor Woodrow
Wilson and Senator-elect Ollie James
of Kentucky, who was permanent
chairman of the Baltimore convention,
decided Saturday afternoon to have
the governor formally notified of his
nomination on the lawn of New Jer-
sey's "little White House" here, at 2
o'clock on the afternoon of Wednes-
day, August 7. Mr. James came up
from Washington and had a long talk
with the nominee, during which he
was required to name as late a date
as possible to afford Governor Wilson
an opportunity to catch up with his
correspondence, now some 10,000 let-
ters and telegrams behind.
The speech or notification will be
short and the governor's reply will
sound the keynote of the campaign,
Mr. James declared. Governor Wilson
let it be known that he would deal
chiefly with the hig cost of living
and the tariff, which he regards as
the leading issues, clearly and fully.
His speech of acceptance, which he
will shortly begin to draft, will be his
first public comment, he declared
upon the party platform.
Mr. James went to New York Sun-
day night, Intending later to leave for
Washington where he will write mem-
bers of the notification committee of

Mr. James said he and the governor
had talked with Champ Clark and he
knew Clark was strong for Wilson.
"There is no doubt as to Clark's
loyalty to this ticket," Mr. James said,
"nor as to the loyalty of any other de-

It was as a lawyer that Woodrow
Wilson made his first bow to the
world, and as president of Princeton
he became more widely known, but
it was as a reformer that he achieved
the limelight, and it was reform that
landed him in the New Jersey gov-
Horn In Staunton, Va„ December 28,
1856, he was christened Thomas Wood-
row Wilson, but in his youth he cut
off the "Thomas" because, as he said,
he wanted to use only one name, and
Thomas W. WiiBon would have been
too commonplace. Graduating from
Princeton in 1879, he practiced law
for two years in Wesleyan university,
he became an educator. He taught
history and political economy for
three years in Byrn Mawr college, and
was instructor in the same branches
fo rtwo yiars in Wesleyan university,
before he was engaged as a teacher
of jurisprudence and politics in Prince-
ton. his alma mater. He became
president of Princeton, August 1, 1902
and held that position until October,
1910, when h« resigned to become
governor. In 1885 he married Mis*
Helen Louise Axson, of Atlanta, Ga.
Governor Wilson holds A. B„ LL.D.,
and other degreas from Princeton,
University of Virginia, Johns Hopkins,
Brown, Harvard, Williams, Dart-
mouth, and Yale universities.
It was as a writer that Woodrow
Wilson first got before the people as
a politician. He wrote volumliioualy
of the evils of bossism, the corruption
of politics, and the like, and quite
naturally glided from the pen to the
platform and banquet table, being
asked to speak for various meetings
and dinners in all the large cities.
"A prophet is not without honor
save in his own country," and through
his writings and after-dinner speeches,
Woodrow Wilson was being talked
about as a reformer long before the
people of New Jeresy considered him
As far back as 1J04 people in the
west were "talking about" Wilson as
a presidential possibility, but New
Jersey knew nothing of him or about
it, and again at Denver, in 1908, he
was "spoken of." But it was not un-
til 1910 that the people of the doctors
state "discovered" him. Then the
democratic bosses of the oorporation-
ridden state decided that it was time
to elect a governor. They had not
had one since the days of Cleveland,
and it was decided that reform was a
good platform. Considering reform-
J era, they picked Wilson as a "man
j of the hour," and ran him. Wilsou
was elected, but the bosses soon Were
led to believe that they had "picked
a lemon," for no sooner did "Prexy"
have hia long lean legs firmly en-
twined around the governor's chair
rungs than he began loudly to defy.
He defied the bosses, he defied the
corporations, he defied everybody
while the defying was good, and he
made a noise that was heard through-
out the country.
'The time when you can play poli-
tics and fool the people has gone by,"

GOV. MARSHALL A REFORMER
Vice Presidential Nominee Named
"Little Giant" At Home
Governor Thomas R. Marshall of
Indiana, the democratic nominee for
vice president, rode to the front in
his party on a wave of reform. But
the Indiana wave was not so boister-
ous as those that broke on the New
Jersey coast and elsewhere. Gover-
nor Marshall believes in reform—in
moderation. Also he believes in pro-
gressing—with moderation. He does
not believe that this great and glo-
rious commonwealth is goin to "dem-
nition bow-wows"; In fact, he points
with pride to hiB belief that the
country is just a little bit better po-
litically and financially than ever.
Governor Marshall was born in
Manchester, Ind., in 1854 and has
spent his entire fifty-eight years in
his native state. He was graduated
from Wabash college in 1S73, when
he was 21 years old. He practiced
law in Columbia City, Ind., until he
was elected governor two years ago.
He is a member of many clubs and
holds LL.D. degrees from Wabash,
Norte Dame and the University of
Pennsylvania. He married Miss Lois
I. Kimsey of Angola, Ind., in 1885.

PROGRESSIVE CALL ISSUED
Teddy Supporters Will Gather at
Chicago August 5
New York.—A call to the people of
the United States who are in sym-
pathy with the "national progressive
movement" to send delegates to a
national convention to open at Chi-
cago August 5, was given out Sunday
afternoon by United States Senator
Joseph M. Dixon of Montana, Theo-
dore Roosevelt's campaign manager.
The call is signed by members of the
committee chosen at a preliminary'
meeting held in Chicago and includes
signatures of Roosevelt followers in
"The territories have no place in a
national convention and will not be
considered," declared Senator Dixon
in commenting on the signatures. "As
for the missing eight states, the most
of them probably will send delegates,
although they have not taken part in
"Maine, for instance, postponed any
definite action because there is a
strong fight on in the primaries with
the sympathy running in favor of the
progressive movement. Delaware,
North Carolina, Arkansas and Nevada
probably will take part in the conven-
tion. Mississippi and South Cnrolina
may possibly be unrepresented.
"The call lays down no rules as to
the methods of choosing delegates
since each state will be expected to
seelct its delegates by its own para-
phernalia. The representation will
be cut down to Just one half that of
the previous conventions. This was
considered advisable since this con-
vention is notably to be a delibera-
tive body and will certainly be com-
posed of a class of men different from
those who usually attend."

GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP
No Medicine So Beneficial to Bralrt
Lying awake nights makes it hard
to keep awake and do things In day
time. To take "tonics and stimulants"
under such circumstances is like set-
ting the house on fire to see if you
can put it out.
The right kind of food promotes re-
freshing sleep at night and a wide
awake individual during the day.
A lady changed from her old way ot
eating Grape-Nuts, and says:
"For about three years I had been
a great sufferer from indigestion.
After trying several kinds of medicine,
the doctor would ask me to drop oft
potatoes, then meat, and so on, but in
a few days that craving, gnawing feel-
ing would start up, and I would vomit
everything I ate and drank.
"When I started on Grape-Nuts, vom-
iting stopped, and the bloaied feeling
which was so distressing disappeared
"My mother was very much bothered
with diarrhoea before commencing the
Grape-Nuts, because her stomach was
so weak she could not digest her food.
Since using Grape-Nuts food she is
well, and Bays she don't think she
could do without it.
"It is a great brain restorer and
nerve builder, for I can sleep as sound
and undisturbed after a supper of
Grape-Nuts as In the old days when I
could not realize what they meant by
a 'had stomach.' There is no medi-
cine so beneficial to norves and brain
as a good night's sleep, such as you
can enjoy after eating Grape-Nuts."
