PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. Condensed for Busy Readers His Recommendations In A Nutshell. Tlu incssnRe of President Roosevelt, which may be regarded nsliis valedictory as President of the United States, beats all records as to length, containing more than 30,000 words equal in space to about thirty columns of Tiik Citizen, if printed in our ordinary reading matter tpe.
