History:

A paper of this name was established by the Revs. Sherman and Ellis in July, 1881, somewhere in Illinois, where these gentlemen were conducting a series of "holiness" meetings. For several months it was published in a tent with which they wandered about that State, and in October of 1881, it settled at Quincy, Ill., and in April, 1882, it was removed to St. Louis. In October, 1882, Mr. Ellis retired, and Mr. Sherman became sole proprietor and editor. It is published semi-monthly.
(From the History of St. Louis City and County by John Thomas Scharf, 1883).

Began as Prohibition paper. Later motto was "Radical in Holiness - Neutral in Nothing."
