The Rev. A. S. Steele, editor of
the Epworth Era, describes how,
when 9 years old, lie was scared near-

locomotive. It was in the dayv when
railroads were few, and tle boy had
never seen a train of cars.
I first saw the cars at the place
where tihe L. & N. railroiad crosses
the Hatchie ri r, a little west of
Brownsville. We went there to take
the train fotr Mermphis. I was re-
peatedly assured by my parents that
there was no danger at all, but their
assurances only partly allayed myv
juvenile apprehensions.

The Carob Tree.

says the Manatee River Journal, is
thlie Carob tree, doubtless tle only
bearing specimen of its kind in this
section, yet among the most valuable
trees in other countries of similar
climate. It is evergreer. The great
frost did not injure it, and single
trees have produced 800 to 900
pounds of pols, an invaluable food
for horses, cattle ani hogs. They
are, in fact, now exported to England
in la-rge quantities and kno)wu as

his course would be, so that all he did
came with a shock.
In this case he was certainly right.
He could see at a glance that his officers
were not with him, and to fight a whole
ship without support was beyond even
his ferocity. His game was to make the
crew his party; it was a game he un-
derstood. Seeing, too, how a great part
of them were reduced with seasickness,
he could promise himself not to find in
them a spirit too firm for him to bend.
They were soon mustered and stood
waiting and expectant. But he hardly
seemed to notice, and, as if they were
not there, he turned to the surgeon at
his elbow.
"Doctor," says he, pointing to the
fallen orator, "get that to the sick bay.
The sickness has driven him clean off
his head. It often takes them so. And,
see here! Keep him there till tomorrow,
and if he is not back in his senses by

Again his horrid laugh jarred through
them, suggesting hideous memories of
cruelty in faroff seas.
"And see here," he went on, "if
there are any more of 'em taken that
way, we will treat them all together."

"There," she aid, "you shall ot

captain takes orders from his crew."
For a moment or two longer Farochol
eyed her more wickedly than ever, as if
his distraction must find vent in some
violence upon her. The American's hand
stole inside the lapels of his coat to his
pistol butt, but there was no need, for
Farochol had suddenly snatched up Cur-
tis' pistol from the table, where Lucile
had laid it down, and with a rasping
cry of" Stamp me black You shall -, eI
had rushed from the cabin.

The whole deck was already in a tur-
moil when Farochol came there, and
for a minute or two he stood glaring
over it, as if to see how much his mere
presence could achieve toward order.
Some of the old hands, in whom the
pride of the service survived, had re-
mained impassive at their stations; a
good many more slunk back to their
duty at the sight of the captain, but the
bulk of them remained gathered in dis-
orderly groups, drawing closer together,
and crying out more noisily, to keep up
their hearts for rebellion, and especially
about the forecastle, where a pale young
man, who bore the marks of much suf-
fering from seasickness, was haranguing
from a gun carriage in a high pitched
It matters little what he was saying,
though they all kept applauding his
platitudes with a desperate attempt at
enthusiasm. For the most part it was
heady stuff, about the betrayal of the
nation and Pitt's gold and such like
froth, and it euded prematurely in a fit
of retching, in which the orator slipped
from his perch and lay hanging over
the gun in the throes of his affliction, a
very sorry figure of a patient.
Nobody marked him; he was left to
groan where he fell, unheeded, and that
for good reason enough-Farochol had
When that happened it was difficult
to think of anything for a minute or
two. It was a hard, loud laugh; a
laugh of cruel derision and no mirth,
sudden and short, and it came and went
like a clap of wind before a gale, and
left yon shivering. Every one knows
the laugh that is contagious, that will
dissolve a whole company out of hand,
and no one can say why. Farochol's
laugh was of the contrary quality. It
froze to silence, with a promise of some-
thing ugly to come. It froze the heart
out of them now. Every eye was turned
to the quarter deck, amazed, and before
they could recover the oppression of that
satanic merriment his rasping voice
cried out, "Pipe the hands aft 1"
The boatswain's whistle squealed, the
old hands came smartly at the call and
the rest went shuffling along with them.
A swaggering bugle call clashed in
with the shrill discordance of the pip-
ing, and the marines began forming
along the starboard side of the deck.
Farochol was striding across and
across the quarter deck, with his hands
behind him and his hat cocked over his
eye, waiting till the whole ship's com-
pany was assembled. After the clamor
that had reigned, and its sudden end in
the clap of laughter, there was some-
thing strangely oppressive in the muffled
confusion of the mustering, being nei-
ther sound nor silence.
Beyond the voices of the air and sea
there seemed nothing but a sense of
shuffling feet and the subdued clink of
arms as the marines dressed at the
hoarse orders of the sergeants, and from
away to leeward, where the lugger was
rocking, came up the clatter of the car-
penters repairing the shattered rudder.
So it came about that before the
struggle had begun the victory was
half won. But the truth is, no man's
behavior could be foretold less surely.
He was always letting loose a surprise.

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting direct-
ly upon the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in do-
ing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for list of

An Old Citizen Dies.
ED. BuoY:-Washington county has
again lost one of its oldest and most
highly esteemed citizens. On Friday
afternoon at 1:30 o'clock Saunders Da-
vis peacefully passed away at the age
of 78 years,
Mr. Davis resffed east of Chipley with
his daughter, Mrs. Wesley Gainer, for
many years, or, since the death of his
wife. Heart failure is said to be the
cause of his death.
Mr. Davis had only been ill a short
;ime, and on the day he died hopes
were entertained of his speedy recov-
ery; in fact he ate a hearty dinner a
short time before his demise.
Of him it could be truthfully said
that one of our oldest landmarks had
passed away. For some forty-four
years he had been a citizen of our coun-
ty, and was one of our most highly es-
teemed citizens; a man of splendid
physique, weighing some 200 pounds.
His funeral took place three miles
'outh of Orange Hill on Saturday at 3
p. m., where he was placed side by side
with hi, wife, who preceded him a few
years ago.
Mr. Davis leaves a large family to
mourn his loss, consisting of three mar-
ied sons, S.W., T. L. and D. D. Davis,
and two or more married daughter.
The funeral services were conducted by-
he Rev. J. I. Weatherby, of this place,
pastor of the Methodist church. Mr.,
)aviO xas a member in good standing
)f the Masonic fraternity, and at ro
distant d y they will conclude the
burial services with Masonic honors.
A large number attended the funeral,
nd all felt sad at the great loss sus-
ained by our county.
Of Mr. Davis it could truthfully be
aid, "None knew him but to love him,
none named him but to praise." And
hus passed away Saunders Davis, one
f "the noblest works of God, an honest
ian." May his soul rest in peace.

Some Safe Bets.
"Silver is now worth about 69 cents

an ounce. The silver bullion in a dol-
lar is worth about 54 cents. Free silver
coinage would raise the price of silver
to 129 cents an ounce, and the silver li
an American dollar would be worth $1
in gold the world over even without a
government stamp on it."-Ex-Con-
gressman R. P. Bland in New York
World of July 1, 1896.
If you have a neighbor who thinks
Bland is a great t.tatesman, and ho is
willing to back his opinion with money,
and who would have anything to lose
after going through the free coinage
cyclone, here are some of the perfectly
safe bets you can make him:
First.-That free coinage would not
.in one year raise the price of silver to
$1 per ounce. (You can bet on any
number of years, but would have to
wait longer before the bet could be set-
tled. )
Second.--That the price of silver will
be lower noe year after than one year
before the passage of a free coinage act.
Third. -That the price of silver will
be less than 80 cents per ounce when a
free coinage act has been in effect six
months or one year.
Fourth.-That at no time within one
year after free coinage at 16 to 1 has
become a law will an American silver
dollar be worth as much as 75 per cent
of the value of an American gold dollar.
If you cannot get even bots, give odds.
The price ef silver is determined
mainly by the cost of prcductiGn. All
the silver the world can use can be pro-
duced at less than 75 and probably less
than 70 cents per ounce. No legislation
can raise, except for a short time, the
price of silver. It is to be hoped that we
will never be forced to make this fool-
ish free coinage experiment, but if we
do we should, if we can find takers, re-
coup some of our certain losses by bet-
ting on the inevitable.

Free Coinage Plainly Stnted.
It is important to reo.r. bcr that
freo coinage means the right cf every
owner of bullion to present the same to
the mints cf ibo United States and have
it coined without charge into money.
Under the free coinr.o of silver, the
owner (-f 317' grails of pure silver
on]d be permitted to turn it over to
the United Sta-es rint and have it
coined without charge or receive t.bere-
for onoe silver dollar. More bthan this,
under free ',nd '*nlhnited coinrge, this
right would bt extended to the whole
world, and the amount of silver coinage
would be liamitfed only by the capacity
of our mints and the output of the silver
If I have made myself understood as
to the meaning of free coinage and
'the ratio," we aro novw prepared to dis-
cuss nnde standingly the feasibility of

opening the minis cf the United States
to the free and unlimited coinage of sil-
ver by this country alone at the ratio of
16 to 1. For myself, after the most ma-
ture deliberation, I have been unable to
reach any other conclusion than that
such a step would be attended with the
most serious consequences to the country
and involve all our people in a common
In the first place, the free and unlim-
ited coinage of silver at 16 to 1 would
in my judgment expel from our circula-
tion not only our entire volume of gold,
but every dollar of paper money redeem-
able in gold and cause a contraction of
the currency and a resultant panic the
like of which has not been seen in this
generation.-Senator J. 0. Burrows.

How to Cure Yourself While
Using It.
The tobacco habit grows on a man un-
til his nervous system is seriously affect-
ed, impairing health, comfort and iap-
piness. To quit suddenly is too) severe
a shock to the system, as tobacco to an
inveterate user becomes a stimulant that
that his system continually craves.
"Baco-Curo" is a scientific cure for the
tobacco habit, in all its rorins, care ully
compounded after the formula of an emi-
nent Berlin physician who has used it
in his private practice since 1872, with-
out a failure. It is purely vegetable and
guaranteed perfectly harmless. You cam.
use all the tobacco you want while taking
"Baco-Curo." It will notify you when to
stop. We give a written guarantee to
cure permanently any case with three
boxes, or refund the money with 10 per
cent, interest "Bacco-Curo" is net a sub-
stitute, but a scientific cure, that cures
without the aid of will power ar.d wit'- no
inconvenience. It leaves the system as
pure and free from nicotine as the day
you took your first chew or smoke.
From hundreds of testimonials, the
originals of which are on file and open
to inspection, the following is represent-
Clayton, Navada Co., Ark., Jan 29,'95..
Eureka Chemical & Mfg., Co.,, La
Crosse. Wis.-Gentlemen: For Forty
years I used tobacco in all its forms.
For twenty;five years of that time I'was a
great sufferer from general debility and
heart disease. For fifteen years I tried to
quit, but couldn't. 1 took various remne-
dies, among others "No-To-Bac." ".lhhe
Indian Tohacco Antidote." "Double
Chloride of Gold," etc., etc., but none of
them did me the least bit of good. Fin-
ally, however, I purchased a box of your
"Bacco-Curo" and it has entirely cured
me of the habit in all its forms, and I have
increased thirty pounds in weight and am
relieved from all the numerous aches and
pains of body and mind I could write ,.
quire of paper upon my changed feelings
and condition. Yours respectfully.

Congressman Towne's Admission That a
Policy Which Injures Capital Will Strike
Down Labor.
Representative Towne of Minnesota
is an ardent advocate of free silver who
argues plausibly from a basis of facts
which exist only in his imagination.
But while he is mistaken in his theories
as to the need of cheap money, he is en-
tirely correct in his statement of the
mutual dependence of all classes on the
maintenance of a stable monetary
standard. That he believes in a free
coinage law which would put this
country on a fluctuating, silver basis
does not lessen the importance of his
assertion that: "The laboring man's
interests are precisely the same as the
manufacturer's, the tradesman's and the
farmer's, and the policy that is sure
to wreck all employers in productive
industry if continued cannot fail to
ruin also the men who work for them.
Profits cannot disappear and leave
wages untouched. When men that hire
labor become bankrupt, the man who
works is very apt to be out of a job."
Truth, golden truth. Yet it comes
from a man who is doing his best to
strike a blow at manufacturers, mer-
chants and other employers of labor
which would throw trade and industry
into hopeless confusion, and bring ruin
and bankruptcy to the business interests
of the country. What is the chief aim
and object of the silverite agitators? It
is to attack capital and capitalists by
making it possible for the man who has
borrowed money to pay his debts with
dollars worth but one-half of those that
were loaned to him. The free coinage
and Populist papers and the speeches of
the 16 to 1 senators and representatives
are filled with denunciations of the
wicked capitalists and bankers who are
said to be robbing the people, and who
will find the value of their money cut
in two under free silver. Repudiation
of debts and confiscation of the property
of creditors are openly preached by the
prophets of the cheap money gospel.
Suppose that the United States should
adopt free coinage, what would be the
effect on the capitalists whose money is
absolutely necessary to carry on the
great manufacturing and other produc-
tive industries of the country? It is cer-
tain that long before a 16 to 1 law
could be put on the statute book the
fact that a president and congress favor-
able to its enactment had been elected
would cause the calling in of hundreds
of millions of dollars. Timid creditors
would insist on getting back their
money, and no new loans would be
forthcoming. No sensible man would
invest in any enterprise if he know that
he might get back only one-half of his
capital. Banks would refuse to aid the
hundreds of thousands of business men
now dependent on them, and the mills
and factories would be shut down. The
millions of men forced into idleness by
the closed industries could not buy the
farmer's products. Business stagnation
and widespread poverty and depression
would inovitably Le the results of a law
which inade doubtful the ownership or
security of capital.
American workingmen who have been
deluded hby the silverite and socialist
outcry against capital should remember
that "when' men who hire lhbor become
bankrupt the man who wv.'rLhs is very
apt to be out of a job." And the Amer-
ican farmers would do well to bear in
mind that a man permanently out of a
job cannot buy the things they have to
The South's Interest.
"The south especially is interested in
the maintenance of a sound currency,"
the Charleston News (Dem.) says. "The
south more than any other section
should support the gold standard. The
south will suffer more than any other
part of the country from free silver coin-
age. The north anmd east will be able to
take care of themselves when the del-

Spoons Free to All.
I read in the Christ-an Standard that
Miss A. M. Fritz, Statioh A, St, Louis,
Mo.j would give an elegant plated hook
socon to any one sending her ten 2-cent
stamhsa. I sevt for one and found it so
useful that I showed it to my friends, arid
made $13 in two hours, taking orders for
the spoon. The hook spoon is a house,
hold necessity. It cannot slip into th#
dish or cooking vessel, being held iii its
place by a hook on the back. The spoon
is something housekeepers have needed
ever since spoons were firs invented. Any
one can get a sample spoon by sending
ten 2-centstamps to Miss fritz, Fhis is a
splendid opportunity to make money
around home. Very truly; JEANNETTE S.

Te purpose 6f this Aassociation is to Impiove the Country
Andrews jBay anai tv

adjacent to St

Develop Its Resources as a Fruit-6rowing Country.
'1, accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Tiw:)-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every su,'b tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
Tho first question wh'ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; *ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds, English
walnuts, Japan chestnuts, pecans, and ,,any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the As,)diation will give particular attention to an-
swerini, letters of inquiry, .and the B Uo will in its a,:lmiers to correspondents an-
swer all qlunatirniiq asked it.

Poor Cinderella burt. into tears. It
was too ti'ne. She had neither wheel
nor tL..':,muing costume. But the tears
(lid unt me)t the sisters' marble hearts.

a tear from her eye and read:
.. .... .... ... ...-....*........... *....** .
A minute later Miss New Fairy was
shown in. Miss Fairy was different from
anybody that Cinderella had ever known,
yet she ywas not different in a describa-
ble way.
"Cinderella," said the visitor in a
voice sweetly baritone, "Cinderella,
you are sad. You need not tell me why,
for I know. You dropped a penny in my
tin cup the other day when I mutely
begged behind a wheezy lap hand organ.
I am a fairy-an up to date one-and
as I know your wish, Presto! Change 1"
The footstool and a china vase became
a bicycle, the song that Trilby sang be-
came wheeling shoes, and leggings lay
where two rugs had been.
"Ah l" exclaimed the fairy. "I near-
ly forgot one article., But no matter.
There is an extra pair that I brought in
case of accidents. Now go to the pa-
rade. "
Joyfully Cinderella sprang away, and
only a few short minutes had elapsed
when she came back with her hateful
old spirits discarded and arrayed in
lovely style-a style that outdid her sis-
ters for splendor-with a wheel that
outshone theirs and a grace that none
could equal. With a merry laugh she
sprang lightly into the 'saddle, for she
had ridden her sisters' wheels on the q.
t., and away she spun up the asphalt
pavement toward the new cycle path.
A warning voice came floating after and
whispered in her ear:
"Stay no later than 3 o'clock, lest a
greater sadness overtake you."
A wondering populace paused to gaze
after the beautiful Cinderella and her
magnificent equipage. The parade that
was to open the path was about to start,
and a hush fell over the throng as the
grand marshal of the parade, the great-
est of the great amateur riders, stood
up on his wheel's handle bars and look-
ed the paraders over. Who was to ride
by his side and lead them all? Who but
the prettiest and most handsomely ar-
rayed girl there? For a moment a look
of dissatisfaction dwelt in the great
man's eyes, and then he smiled. The
two sisters of Cinderella found, them-
selves observed by the marshal, who
gazed upon them favorably. Still he
was perplexed, for the two sisters were
equally beautiful, and he could not
choose. At this moment a vision spurted
around a far corner as if winged and
rode straight at him. Without a pause
or a glance to right or left Cinderella,
for it was she, rode up to the marshal
and gazed shyly into his eyes.
"Ready! Forward!" shouted the
marshal, and the parade began, with
Cinderella in the place of honor. The
sisters were filled with envy.
On and on rode the mighty host, Cin-
derella in a heaven and the marshal in
a sea of bliss, when suddenly the clock
in the old church tower began to strike
Cinderella fled, bicycles and in
skirts, across the vacant lots, while the
bewildered marshal stopped and looked
about him, seeking the beautiful crea-
ture who had been riding beside him
and giving him the bicycle neck. At
last his glance fell to the ground, and
there lay the fairy's extra pair, which
were tailor made and not enchanted,
like the rugs, the Trilby song, the china
bowl, and the footstool. Picking up the
one memento of his late beautiful com-
panion, the marshal resigned then and
there and went disconsolate to the city,
proclaiming through the evening papers
that whom those bloomers would fit he
would ni:airy.
Myriadl.i c'ai., but went away agaiu. I
The two sisters came, too, hoping that
they might win the greatest amateur of
the age, but alas! As for Cinderella,

she wept and wept, and the tears made
her cheeks fairer than ever. One day,
as she was riding in an elevated train,
a tear coursed down her cheek. It was
at a dull hour, and few were in the car,
but it happened that among the passen-
gers was the late marshal, on his way
to the west to begin life over again. He
saw the tear on the maiden's cheek, and I
his heart was softened. He folded up-
his newspaper and shoved it under his
satchel strap. He was picking a bit of
lint from his coat sleeve when the guard
Stuck his head in at the door and shouted :

CindIrella knew then to whom she

contrary, we shall discourage the own-
ers of sand lots five miles from town
from jumping prices to $200 a foot
front, and we don't know of any great
industries coming here to add thousands
to our population during the next year.
We personally own 1,000 acres of
land on which nothing but cactus and
rattlesnakes can be grown, and we
shan't do any lying to unload. We also
own two mountains which could per-
haps be worked off on eastern tenderfeet
for orange groves or vineyards, but we
Hall continue, to hold the price down
to 5 cents an acre and throw in bears,
wildeats and avalanches free gratis. We
li .,i.ise own 100 city lots, all of which
we have won at )poer'iiad each one of
which was valued at $100, but our price
on the same will continue to be $12
each, and we shall feel sorry for the
chaps who buy 'em at that.
There are 17 saloons, two butcher
shops, five groceries, four gambling
houses, six barns and two blacksmith
shops going up in this town, but we are
not saying a word about booms.
There Was No Shooting.
The dispatch sent out of here to the
eastern papers last Saturday regarding
an incident in the common council was
both misleading and malicious. We had
scarcely taken our place as presiding
officer of the meeting when we noticed
that Alderman McGraw of the Second
ward had mischief in his eye. We
couldn't understand what he was at un-
til he moved to take from the table a
resolution for a sidewalk on the east
side of Grant place. There is but one
house on the east side of that street, and
the alderman owns that. His idea was
to stick the taxpayers about $200 for
his own .individual benefit, and as he
made his motion he started to draw his
guns. We were too quick for him, how-
ever, and ordered him to throw up his
hands. Alderman McGraw is a critter
who knows when he is beaten, and he
didn't hesitate to'elevate and keep his
hands up until disarmed by the city
clerk. He left the council chamber with
a threat to do us up later, but after the
session was over we met him in the
Yaller Dog saloon, and he extended his
hand, acknowledged, his error and asked
that friendly relations be renewed.
The incident really amounted to noth-
ing, and we are sorry to see the eastern
papers giving it so much space. Ours is
a pioneer town in a territory. Our com-
mon council is composed of good ma-
terial, but we run things after our own
fashion and should not be criticised be-
cause that fashion differs from New
York or Chicago. Every alderman
brings at least one gun into the meeting
with him, while we always have two
within reach, but we nevertheless flat-
ter onrsolves that the public business is
as carefully considered and as promptly
disposed of as if we followed some other
Aunoter Newspaper Suspended.
The White Rock Eagle, a weekly
newspaper established in the town of
White Rock several months ago by .a
man named Fearnaught, suspended pub-
lication under disastrous circumstances
last week. Mr. Fearnaught visited The
Kicker office and had a long talk with
us before establishing The Eagle. We
told him frankly that his name was
agin him as a starter. The boys would
take it as a bluff and be anxious to know
whether he feared naught or could stand
up to a row. He didn't look to us like
a man with sand in his craw, and when
we presented him with an old revolver
as an editorial gift he had to squint all
around to discover the business end of
it. We were willing to help the critter
along, however, arid advised him to buy
half an acre of ground and start a pri-
vate graveyard the first thing. Our way
would have been to pick a fight the very
first day and take our chances, but he
decided on soft measures and had his
nose pulled before his first issue went
to press. That was the beginning of the

"Straight west."

Ohen some one remarked:
"He said this took place in the sum-
rer of 1887, didn't he?"

with the slouch hat, "I had this story

out of the room, and the audience grad-

further noise.-Chicago Tribune.

A Demand That Farm Products Shall Be
Treated tl.c .Lune as the White Metal.
The following is a copy of a letter
which it is said is Leing circulated ex-
tensively in the west and has also been
sent to the delegates to the national
Democratic convention:
Juno, 1890.
Farmers' Financial and Industrial League:
GENTiEMEN--WO respectfully request the
delegates of the national Democratic conven-
tion to provide in their platform for the erec-
tion of government storehouses for wheat,
corn and oats and the issue of government
certificates fo.r all grain deposited therein by
citizens of the United States at the rate of
$1.25 per bubel f'.r wheat, 75 cents per bushel
for corn and no cturs per bushel for oats: such
certificates to be made a legal tender for their
face value for duties, taxes and all private and
public obligations.
The government shall sell the contents of
these storehouses whenever the -market price
for grain will produce an amount equal to the
price at which certificates have been issued;
such sales to be made for gold and the pro-
ceeds used to retire certificates issued for grain
deposited. * We ask the delegates to con-
sider a law compr.. i!ig farm laborers in this
country to accept the same compensation for
their services as paid in Russia, India and Ar-
gentine Republic,'to enable the farmers of this
country to compete with the products of the
three countries named.
We also ask the delegates to consider the
benefit to the farmers of this country should
war be declared against Russia, India and Ar-
gentine Republic, with the idea of conquering
these countries and then prohibiting their
raising wheat and thus leave the markets of
the world for the farmers of the United States.
We protest against the issuing of 50 cents in
silver bullion and calling it a United States
dollar. Silver mines are owned by the favored
few, while farmers and their products are
owned by millions of our best and most intel-
ligent citizens. Yours truly,
Where the People Are Most Prosperous.
If free silver will bring prosperity, is
it not very strange that all the great
commercial nations of the world have,
after long experience with both metals,
deliberately adopted the gold standard?
The most enlightened and progressive
countries, such as rhe United States,
Great Britain and her Canadian and
Australian colounic.:, France, Germany,
Austria, Sr'itz:rliud, Holland, Bel
gium, Sweden, Norway and Denmark,
are all on a pold basis. The people of
these countries get higher wages, enjoy
more comforts and luxuries, and are
more intelligent and better educated
than those of the rest of the world.
No sound money advocate believes
that this snptriority is due to the use of
the gold standard. But since the highly
civilized countries have agreed in using
gold as a measure of values it is certain
that there nju--t be some good reason for
their action. TI'i reason undoubtedly
is the many avivantage-s which gold pos-
steses as a monetary standard.
r1i h fact that the Ks e-ulightenedand
ninch poorer peopk-. <-;f India. China
and other silver basis nations are so far
behi-nd the gold using countries is cou-
clusive proof that Itheap money does
Lot make pri-p,-riry nor encourage prog-
ree-s. Th,'.i.is ai to what will happen
iqtin %;,T ,i ". riopt free coinage
are worthless aliu.side the plain facts
cf far greater -':i h and comfort in
gold standard nations, compared with
the almost universal poverty and misery
in nearly all the couLntries which are on
the silver basis.
Can A! Ee JIlilnonaires?
The Populists discount the silverites
by claiming that a greenback dollar,
which only costs 1 cent, is just as good
and just as honest money as the 55 cent
silver dollar or the 100 cent gold dollar;
and although they join the silver miners
in supplanting the 100 cent gold dollar
with a 65 cent silver dollar, it is only
for the purpose of a little later sup-
planting the .5 cent silver dollar with
the 1 cent riapcr dollar.
Now, if the silver men are right on
silver, are not the Populists right on
paper? But if iiredi-emable paper
nuouey, made a legal tender for debt, is
round constitutional mon,-y, why should
th," owva-runieit, ever tax the people for
a'y pt-pSre whatever? Why not issue

end. Brother Fearnaught has been kick-
ed and cuffed and walloped until his
weight fell to 100 pounds and his hair
turned gray. He was holding on in
hopes that, public sentiment would
change, but last week his paper con-
tained an item which wrought his final
dowufall. It was about the magnificence'
of Niagara falls.
The town of White Rook is situated
on Squaw creek, and just there the
creek has a fall of seven feot. It is a
cataract which the folks are all proud of
and regard as the biggest thing on earth,
Therefore, when The Eagle bragged
about Niagara falls and gave Squaw
creek the cold cut the whole population
moved down on the office. In ten min-
utes there was no office, no Eagle, no
press, and the editor was flying for his
life. He is flying yet, and from all we
bear will not stop short of Nebraska.
We have tried to be sorry for him, but
the tears will not come. He was pig-
headed and wouldn't take our advice,
and he may console himself with the
thought that he alone was responsible
for the calamity which made him a
pauper and jumped him into the bush
a fugitive at the same time.-M. Quad
n Detroit Free Press.
Kliling the Goose, Etc.
The Baltimore Sun points out that
"our 'good' times have in the past al-
ways been times when foreigners were
investing money freely among us. It
was not altogether or chiefly our own *
savings that made business brisk. It
was the continued influx of foreign
gold. Now we are unfortunately isolat-
ed by the threat of the silver basis and
shall be bottled up industrially if we
shall ever actually reach it. Our theo-
rists kill the goose that laid the golden
Quick Lunch. h
First Waiter-Have you ordered, sir?
