The St. Louis Republic’s weekday editions consistently feature reports on local, national, and international politics; local or statewide criminal investigations; society news; financial news, classified ads, marriages and deaths; and editorial comments. The paper averaged 15 pages during the week, with Sunday editions sometimes exceeding 80 pages, including the 20-page magazine. The paper strongly supported the city’s preparations for the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition and frequently covered World’s Fair events. After 1912, however, the Republic failed to make a profit, and it was sold in 1919 to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
