Choate's Defeat.
The defeat of Mr. Charles A.
Choate in the state convention has
been a case of surprise to his many
friends in West Florida and else-
where. The flattering mention by
his brethren of the editorial fraternity
of Florida had made his strength
appear nore than it really was, and it
-was decided by his friends in the
convention that to save a worse
butchery his name should not be pre-
sented, which was more of a surprise
to his friends outside of the conven-
tion than his ultimate defeat would
have been.
While the Buoy iould have been
sincerely pleased to have seen Mr.
Choate nominated, believing hisn to
be a good man for the place, it will,
as heretofore, heartily support the
regular nominee of the democratic

The Rbsult.
The result of the Ocala conven-
tion may be judged' by some as far
from batteringg, yet there rests the
consolation in the minds of the ma-
jority of democrats that the nominees
of the regular convention are true
men, tried by years of democratic
The Buoy can express surprise in
but one instance, and that is that the
name of its choice for attorney-gen-

eral, Hon. Chas. A. Choate, the can-
diaate of all journalists, was not even

submitted to the convention. As re-
ferred to in another editorial the
reason for this neglect was due to the
fact that a fear existed in the minds
of many as to his success, and while
the fact remains, the surprise is
still there a glaring manifestation.
The currency plank rallied around
by our party is fully harmonious with
the ideas promulgated through the
columns*-of the Buoy, although the
convention referred the matter to the
action of the national party. The
Buoy entertains no doubt as to the
wisdom of that organization, and it
heartily endorses the expedient course
The news of the nomination of
W. N. Sheats for state superintend-
ent of public instruction, will prob-
ably be received with more surprise
than any other action of the conven-

tion, yet he is the

nominee of the

party, and the Buoy is the last jour-
nal to repudiate the action of that
body. Should the convention of the
state have declared for the free and
unlimited coinage of silver at the
ratio of 16 to 1, or should the nation-
al convention even declare in a like
manner, the Buoy would support the
nominees, but would still contend for
sound currency as the only safe means
of maintaining a healthy commercial
system which guarantees equal and
exact justice to our own citizens and
commands respect from those nations
with whose citizens we have unlim-
ited business relations.

What the Republicans Have to
As the result of the national re-
publican convention is now known,
and the guidance is vested in the
great tariff apostle, Mr. McKinley,
the democratic party knows from
which side to make its attack. The
slogan of the republican party is, now
and forever, high protective tariff.
which the convention, plainly pro-
mulgated, and the party headed by a
man whose political life has been de-
voted exclusively to framing tariff
legislation, and whose labors have
been unceasing to that end, the whole
country may become prepared to ac-
cept the result of extortionate tariff
duties with as much grace as is char-
acteristic of the American people.
It is true that party has- espoused
the doctrine of sound money, or
rather the present gold standard sys-
tem of monetary expedience, which
plank is the only single instance in
which it presented any declarations
that can be recommended by those
who have uppermost in their mind
the emolument and emancipation of
American progress, both industrial,
commercial and social.
While it must be admitted that
the present system of sonnd money
has been enunciated by the republi-
can p ty, from the time that it be-
... s-cc-tpy- p-. t n' ; "
in the political parties of the United
States, the race will be conducted
chiefly upon its recognition of the
assumed necessity of further protec-
Apparently, Americans should
some day realize that the old protect.
tion plea has about ended its usehdl-
ness in the pursuits of national poli-
tics, and they may as well now gain
the knowledge that it is merely
utilized as a horse upon which the
party fostering it expects to ride the
gauntlet -of public indignation to
the citadel of national political su.
prem acy.
The g. o. p. has apparently gained
a great amount of satisfaction in its
denunciatory .lank of the cease pur-
sued by the democratic party, which
policy was the only positive means
of the restoration of business activity
in the United States. The course
followed by the administration upon
the financial issue is not alone sup-
ported by all political economists
past and present, but is daily receiv-
ing the endorsement of all the busi-
ness men irrespective of political
bias. The tariff legislation enacted
by the Fifty-third congress is such
as would only require a few years to
vigorously excite all manufacturing
interests and reimburse the present
treasury deficiency.
When the democratic party as-
sembles at Chicago their course will
be one far remote from that conduct-

ed within the republican lines. In-
stead of condemning the opposing
parties, which is a truly populistic
theme-one which has been the main
ambition aspired for by that organi-
zation-our party will set forth and
explain the good results to come
from the adoption of the policies
recommended in the platform.
Let all parties adopt their respec-
tive plans of bnttle and present them
to the people for consideration for
their decision on the day of the
grand battle on November 3, next,
whereupon they will demonstrate in
a forcible manner their approval or
In the event that course is pursued
the BnoY entertains no fear as to their
decision upon the principles promul-
gated by the democratic party.

Unwilling to be ooft the fashion, he
was about to conoee is unimportance
in the privacy of his i n lodging when
he saw Farohol po forth from his
farewell interview w the represnta-
tive. He was busyfo ia up an official
paper, but for a as at his eye rested
on the Americarnri. lanced away di- -
-itey]y~ and, giving an abrupt order to
his cowed attendant, slouched rapidly
Instead of following his master, the
coxswain, much to the American's sur-
prise, came toward him with a hangdog
"The captain," said he, without a
pretense of saluting, "is going to his
lodging and wants your company."
"Tell him," said the American, "I
will wait on him shortly."
"But he said immediately."
The American eyed the man in his
severest manner, for he had spoken in
the offensive insubordinate tone then
current in the French navy. But by this
time the colonel knew pretty well how
much had to be swallowed, and he passed
the fellow's impertinence with no more
"Very well," saia he, "you have
done your duty," but he said it with so
overwhelming a dismissal that the fel-
low sheered off abashed and went after
his captain.
The American followed his steps with-
out delay, but at a slow pace. Not that
he was altogether indisposed for the in-
terview-to see the last of Farochol was
too unextinguishable a satisfaction.
The house was easy to know, being
the showiest one on the whole sea front,
and newly painted in glaring colors,
like a figurehead. It was crowded, too,
with tawdry furniture, and the Ameri-
can mounted the stairs, trying to smile
at the vulgarity of the taste.
The pirate was sitting at the far end
of table, leaning upon it with his arms
crossed before -him. He glared at the
American when he entered, and took no
notice of his friendly greeting.
Faroohol tegan:
"I have ejected to the commandant
of my ma~ines. He's reported unfit for

"Tha is most unfortunate."

"o mu the better. Ihave put your
name in it. P)'ye seet"
"But, my doar sir," cried the Ameri-
can, "it is impossible. However much
I appreciate the distinction and wel-
come your good will, my duties in the
secret service are such that I am com-
pelled to deny myself the pleasure of
sailing under your flag. I beg you to
consider a minute.
"Not a second or half that," cried
Farochal in his old savage voice as he
banged his hairy fist on the table. "You
had best come in my ship. I like a wily
one, and I want a wily one for the
lambs they have put aboard of me.
Come; time is short."
And the American, with the best face
he could, made his choice.

When the nor westerns blow-and blow
as nor'westers will, day in and day out
-a current sets in to the bay of Biscay.
All round the coast it sweeps, to redou-
ble the terrors of the gale, so that ves-
sels hove to must drift as well as drive
to leeward.
The Content had been stuck in the
very path of the current and for three
days had been at its mercy. The efforts
she had made now and again to work
to the westward, though they had kept
her clear of the danger of the French
coast, had only hastened her unwilling
progress southward.
By the time the gale began to moder-
ate she had been driven so far from her
course that there was nothing for it but
to run on to Santander to refresh with
water and provisions.
That done, the voyage was resumed,
and the lugger was reaching northward
again on a pleasant westerly breeze.
Hour after hour she had been rolling

along with both topsails set, flinging up
little showers of silver as she met the
dying swell, and lying over steadily, as
if she must fall asleep from the very in-
dolence of her motion.
It was not a thing to be resisted,
the delight of such a time after the la-
bors of the gale and the trials that were
past-least of all by one so much a child
of the sea as Lucile, and it cannot be
denied she began to have a flicker of a
smile for the lieutenant. The first thing
he had done at Santander was, after
the manner of young-navy gentlemen,
to draw a bill on his father, and now'
the ouddy hardly know itself.
To be sure, the skipper had done his
best, by Curtis' orders, to persuade her
that feather quilts and dainty mirrors
and sundry toilet kickshaws were al-
ways included in the passage money

be believed she did not know who was

I read in the Christ;an Standard that
Miss A. M. Fritz, Station A, St. Lou:s,
Mo., would give un elegant plated hook
socon to any one- sending her ten 2-cent
stamps. I sent for one and found it so
useful that I showed it to my friends, and
made $13 in two hours, taking orders for
the spoon. The hook spoon is a house-
hold necessity. it cannot slip into the
dish or cooking vessel, being held in its
place by a hook on the back. The spoon
is something housekeepers have needed
ever since spoons were firs inCented. Any
one can get a sample spoon by sending
ten 2-centstampb to Miss Fritz. Fhis is a
splendid opportunity to make money
around home. Very truly, JLANNErTTrS.

People find just the help they so much
need, in Hood's Sarsaparilla. It fur-

blood, and thus builds up the nerves,
tones the stomach and regulates the
whole system. Read this:
"I want to praise Hood's Sarsaparilla.
My health run down, and I had the grip.
After that, my heart and nervous system
were badly affected, so that I could not do
my own work. Our physician gave me
some help, but did not cure. I decided
to try HoodSarsarsaparilla. Soon I could
do all my own housework. I have taken

Hood's Pills with Hood's Sarsaparilla,
and they have done me much good. I
will not be without them. I have taken 13
bottles of Hood's Sarsaparilla, and through
the blessing of God, it has cured me.
I worked as hard as ever5he past sum-

the richest virtues of heart, she has
entered into rest full of honor and joy.
"The young, the lovely pass away,
Ne'er to be seen again;
Eaith's fairest flowers too soon decay,
It's blasted trees remain.
"Full oft we see, the brightest thinu,
That lifts its head on high,
Smile in the light, then droon its wing,
And fade away and die."
But the crowning glory of our de-
ceased friend was the perfect kindness
and amiability of character; her heart
was warmed to all alike. I have known
no one whose whole life was more
charming. All her words and deeds
seemed imbued with the spirit of love
and kindness.
To the sorrowing parents and relatives
who have through her life felt the warm
contact with her love; who experienced
the joy of her childhood, who have
shared her confidence, and who so ten-
derly ministered to her wants in the
time of affliction, we offer a sympa-
thetic "tear. Grieve no more! Chris-
tianity holds out its promise of an ex-
istence where the virtues developed
here shall continue and grow. Mourn
not that a soul so pure has passed on
safely without a stain, though I feel
sure your longing hearts are ready to
with me to exclaim,
"O, for a touch of a vanished hand,
And the sound of a voice that is still."
Near the home of her childhood, all
that was mortal was brought of this
beloved dead, and just as the last rays
of sunset fell in all its glory and splen-
dor Wednesday evening, surrounded by
the relatives and a host of friends, Rev.
C. Tompkins committed her body to the
dust and her soul to God who gave it.
-A'Youth and the opening rose,
'May look like things too glorious for
\ decay,
Ancsmile at thee-but thou art not of
Thai wait the ripened bloom to seize
their prey."

Ice Cream Made by a New Pro-
I have an ice cream freezer that will
freeze cream instant y. The cream is
put into the freezer and comes out in-
stantly, smooth and perfectly frozen.
This assonishes people and a crowd will
gather to see the freezer in operation
and they will want to try the cream.
You can sell cream as fast as it can be
made and sell freezers to many of them
who would not buy an old style freezer.
It is really a curiosity andyou can sell
from $5 to $8 worth of cream and six to
twelve freezers every day. This makes
a good profit these hard times and is a
pleasant employment. J. F. Casey &
Co., 1143 St Charles St., St. Louis Mo.,
will send full particulars and informa-
tion in regard to this new invention on
application and will employ good sales-
men on salary. KATIE M.

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews |Bay and to
D 0velop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.,.
o T accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by tile
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,
Vot'he end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which 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, thongh perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, pluins, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japan. chestnuts, pecans, and many 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 Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E M E M B E R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
Shat the work has been performed. CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED.

cordmunistlc idea that it is the dutit of gov-
ernment to take care of every loafer who is
too lazy to work for a living, and is too con-
temptible to waste an answer on.
Prices of Corn, Bogs. Butter, Potatoes, Et.,
Have lilsen Since 1878.
If the gold standard depressed wheat and
cotton, it was surely loaded at both ends, for
It has shot some things up in price. The corn
crop of the United States is more valuable
than both the wheat and cotton crops com-
bined. The crop of corn made just preceding
the gold standard, in 1862, sold for 84 cents at
gold figures, and the crop of 1894 was worth 45
cents in gold, and it has generally been above
the 1872 price. The oat crop is about equal to
the wheat crop. Oats were worth 29 cents in
1872 and 82 cents in 189-. Fat beef steers wero
worth $40 in gold in 1672 and $00 in gold in 1805.
Hogs are worth more now than they were in
1872 and have generally been higher than they
were then. The farmers' wives get as much In
gold now for butter, chickens and eggs as they
did in greenbacks in 1872, and this crop is
more valuable than the wheat and cotton
props combined. Tobacco, potatoes, bacon,
hay, coffee, leather, whisky and a hundred
other things have not declined in price.
Labor, Land, Wool and Horses.
The labor crop is equal in value to all other
crops combined, and it has steadily advanced
in price. Land is much more valuable in gold
now than in 1872, notwithstanding it was de-
pressed by the panic of 1892 and 1898. The price
of wool has declined, but the world's produc-
tion of it, since 1872, has doubled and the use
of it has been partly supplanted by the use of
cotton goods. Horses have declined, but the
railroads, electric cars and bicycles are doing
the work they did. The cost of the produc-
tion of an article fixcs its value. This is neces-
sarily so, because if the profit is large, others
will be attracted to the business until the price
is brought to its proper level. All articles man-
ufactured by machinery have declined in price,
for the reason that with each Invention the
cost of producing the article is lessened. Hu-
man genius has produced more results for
cheapening production in the last 50 years
than in all the ages of the world before that
time. These grand triumphs of man over mat-
ter, instead of showing depression from a

What Makes Interest Low?
Interest has declined since 1872 in my part
of the country from 8 per cent per month to
6 and 8 per cent per annum. There is no deny-
ing the fact that the goldbugs did that. The
south and west have saved more on the decline
of interest than they have lost in the decline
in wheat and cotton. Interest is always low
under an honest standard, among an honest
people, where money is plentiful. It is lower
in London than in any other spot on the globe
because her standard is stable and her com-
mercial integrity has been the care of her
statesmen and her people for ages past. Eng-
land's punctuality in meeting her obligations
has made London the clearing house of the
world. Tyre was the London of ancient times.
Seated on the eastern end of the Mediterra-
nean, she reigned queen of commerce for cen-
turies. The scepter of commercial greatness
passed from her when her own children reared
Carthage at the other end of that sea. Some
800 years ago England planted colonies in
America, and today the United States is Eng-
land's only formidable rival for the com-
merce of the world. The object lesson of an-
cient history is being repeated. If the insati-
able mine owners by use of their millions, and
the place hunting demagogues by unctuous ap-
peals to prejudice, succeed in driving this
country from the standard of civilization and
commerce, the standard that announces in-
tegrity at home and inspires confidence
abroad, to a flat standard and silver basis,
then England will have no rival to grapple
with her in the marts of the world.
More Gold and More Credits.
The third proposition is that the supply of
gold is insufficient to make it a correct stand-
ard and its scarcity will tend to depress
prices. The average annual output of gold of
the world for the first half of this century, in
round numbers, was $15,000,000. From 1351 to
1865, covering the gold boam in California and
Australia, the yearly average Was $130,000,000.
The output for 1893 was $165,000,000 and for 1894
$181,000,000. The birth rat- among gold using
countries is not increasing while the produc-
tion of gold is on thei incr*.ne, u. Ju-t stat.d.
This answer ought tdr'atisofy evcen heo extreme
16 to 1 people-the '"per ta'pitu" IP'llist--s-
icelially lu view of thl-_ fict that ir,'provemeints
in power and machinery are being applied to
the production of gold, while the genius of in-
vention finds no inducement offered nor field
for operation in the population business.
My next answer is that the more highly en-
lightened the world becomes, and the greater
the improvements in business methods, the
less necessity there is for the use of actual
money of any kind. Steam and electricity
have so knitted civilized people together that
they are practically one community. Business
men speak to each other around the world as
if they were assembled in the same building.
Their business is done on a system of credits,
without the use of money, except for ultimate
settlement. Nor is this method oonfined to
business men. It is broadening with the evolu-
tion of man from a lower to a higher-plane of
intelligence. A farmer may now live for a
whole year on the fat of the land and never
handle a dollar in money during that time.
He may receive checks for his crop, deposit
them to his credit with a bank and draw on
'the bank for what he owes and spends. Nei-
ther he nor the men who bought his crop had a
dollar in the bank. They only had credit
The bank owns the money in its vault, and
its customers simply have the bank's obliga-
tion. Bank credits perform precisely the same
work that gold and silver do, and they per-
form it much quicker and more conveniently.
The Scots are the most conservative people in
the world, and they have had the best banking
system of any people for 200 years. On a gold
reserve of $28,652,000 they support bank credits
to the amount of $448,288,000. The best author-
ities estimate that only one bill of exchange
in 500,)00 is ever paid in money in England.
Gold, silver and other money perform 1 per
sent of the exchanges in this country, and
credits in the shape of bills, notes, checks,
etc., do the other 99 per cent. The business

of the world could no more be done today with
gold and silver than its inland transportation
could be done with ox wagons.
The 16 to 1 orators, in denouncing the act of
1878, assert that half the money of the country
was destroyed and hold out the idea that our
money has been contracted to that extent. In
1872 our population was 40,506,000 and our per
capital of money was $18.79. In 1894, after the
country had been suffering with gold standard
for 21 years, our population is 68,275,000, and
our per capital of money is $85.44, and we have
much better money now than he had then.
The adoption of the gold standard as a meas-
ure of value did not increase the demand for
gold for use to any great extent. Alcohol is
the standard for measuring the strength of all
spirituous liquors, yet that fact has never been
found to be very straining on alcohol.
A Surfeit of Silver.
Fourth proposition, that the free and unlim-
ited coinage of silver at 16 to 1 would create
unlimited demand for silver and restore it to
a par. How the mere coinage of silver can in
any way inciyase its use among the people I
am unable to understand. If there wasn't
enough of it for use as money and the govern-
ment was limiting the coinage of it and there-
by denying the people of the use of it as
money, then there would be force in the prop-
osition to increase the coinage of silver. But
our condition is exactly the reverse of that.
The amount of coined and uncoined silver in
the treasury is $512,000,000, while the amount
in circulation is about $107,000,000.
To encourage the use of silver by the people
the government exchanges coined silver at its
mints for gold or legal tender currp]y and
pays the express charges on the silverto any
part of the country. This coined silver is all
good money. The dollars are legal tender for
all debts in any amount, and the halves, quar-
ters and dimes are exchangeable in sums of
$20 for gold or other legal tenders. Notwith-
standing the inducement offered by the gov-
ernment to promote the use of silver, it has
hitherto been unable to force into circulation
more than about one-fifth of its stock on hand.
Then, why all this clamor for more coinage? If
a man had five times as much blood in his body
as his arteries and veins would circulate and
four-fifths of it was lying idle around his
heart, would any one say that such a man
needed a free and unlimited infusion of blood?
A government can no more induce people to
ise money they do not want than It can induce
them to eat what they do not like. The true
place of silver Is as a change money. It IS indis-
pensable for that purpose and unsuited to any
other, and all the silver tongued orators in the

The fifth proposition is that 16 to 1 coinage
will increase the prices of property. If this
government should open its mints to coinage
of the world's silver at 10 to 1, we would go at
once to silver mondnmetallism. This is the
voice of all history emphasized by the present
status of every free coinage country on the
earth. We can no more have bimetallism in
actual use and unlimited silver coinage than
we can have a square, rbund object, or dry,
wet weather. Wherein would the people be

ue money? If farmers' products brought

the benefit of the unfortunate debtor who
cannot pay, but for the rich as well, who can
pay, but want to beat their creditors. The
poor man is not in debt; he never had a chance
to got in debt. The corporations, speculators
and plungers generally constitute the debtor
class. Every wage earner belongs to the cred-
itor class. No one would be benefited by 16 to
1 coinage except the debtor class. Even the
mine owner would not, for the temporary
stimulus given to silver would increase its
production until the price would fall below
what it is now. On the other hand, all would
suffer. If a bill for free coinage of silver at
10 to 1 were to pass either house of congress,
and it was ascertained that it would pass the
other house and that the president would sign
it, the panic that would ensue would be to
that of 1898 what a tornado is to a zephyr.
Creditors, to avoid being paid in debased mon-
ey, would crowd and crush for payment as the

There is no way to make people understand
things. They might have been deaf. One all
sufficient reason why they did not so under-
stand is that it was not being done. This dol-
lar was not demonetized, but on the contrary
has been money, and good money, every day
since 1792.
England has loaned us money at a lower rate
of interest than anybody else would. This is
the very head and front of all her offending,
aud the violent 16 to 1 people want to punch
her head for doing this. There is an old adage
which runs this way, "If you want to lose a
friend, lend him money."
Want Repudiation, Not Free Coinage.
To prove that it is repudiation of d-bt and
not coinage the 16 to 1 man is after, pro-
pose to him free and unlimited coinage
without the legal tender attachment. If
there is nothing the matter with silver except
the fact that it is debarred from the mintls,
then free and unlimited coinage, without the
legal tender provision, would set it all right
and bring it to par. Gold would not suffer by
such a test. Your proposition would nauseate
him. Why? Because it is not cronage he Is
after, but repudiation by means of legal ten-
der law.
They propose two plans for forcing a debpeed
silver standard on the country. First, not ul-
low contracts for payment in g'.,ld. 'ocoad, if
this does not work, t.btn reduce the gold in a
gold dollar. With reference to the firat, plan,
minantaining the value of money by legal en-
actment and penalties has bevn tried in most
countries and has proven an Ignominious fail-
ure in every instance. England tried it, off and
on for nearly Mu0 years. France tried it tor
centuries. The north tried it with greenbacks
and the south tried is with Confederate mon-
ey. While it was a death penalty in France to
refuse the aesignats, they fell in value until it
took i.LO0 of them to buvy 1 in sueoie. Epgs

A republic rests entirely upon-ihemrh a

hood, has made millions of truthful men and
women. What would be the effect in th
country upon unborn generations of a story
like this: At the close of the nineteenth can-
lury the people of the United States became
so corrupt t ay repudiated one-half o their
debts by paying them in money worth oi7
half of its faoe value.

Sad honor. Pass this act of repudiaton ana

down and run up a dish rag.
But, Mr. President and gentlemen, allow me,
in conclusion to say that our country isn no
danger of repudiation. This 1Itol ooinaq
clamor Is but one of the manifestations hard,
times, brought on by the late panic. On low
lands In the night ti e a deadly miasma ao-
cumulates, but when the bright sun olimbe
over the hilltops and shoots his purifying rays
into the bottom, the miasma is dispelled, the'
atmosphere is sweetened and made wholesome,
and men go forth to their daily avocatio
with assurance of health. In spite of all the
isms that have afflicted us, n spite of dema-
gogim on the stump and in legislative halls.
this country is rapidly advancing. Our fa,
stories are taxed to their utmost with orders,
and the wages of their employees have bep
everywhere voluntarily raised. Prices that
have been depressed by the panic are Improv-
ing. Sinister discontent, with all her imps, is
fleeing before the benign presence of proser-
Ity, and In after years the heresies o today
will only be remembered Ms a troubled dream.
The American people are honest and patriotic.
Upon this reck we build our faith, and all the
ages and agencies of truth are ours for the su-
