Although the Presidential nominations are more than n year away It Is R eottled conviction In our mind that Calvin Coolidge will be the next Republican nominee of Ids party find in nil likelihood will be elected ta succeed himself, AVe base this opinion on the predicate that he is the sole choice ol the Invisible Government (better known R3 the-money power), because.there is no wing of the Republican party sufficiently strong to nominate anyone else and because the ineptitude of tiie Democratic party Till contribute much to this consummation. *THE PAPER THAT GOES INTO THE HOMES* ^-^··MtaM^MI F INAL E D I T I HI6H WATER MARK 23,171 Flood Destruction Spreads as New Owners of Local Water Company Announce Improved Service and No Change In Rates or Personnel!
