"Madam," said he, "I am informed
you speak English."
"I do, sir, pretty well," she an-
swered with a shy smile that made her
all the more babylike.
"Then I may inform you, madam,"
he proceeded, stonily, "that I am a
magistrate come to take over the pris-
oners. '
His effort to resist her by the severity
of his manner served only by contrast
to render her baby looks more marked
and more dangerously disturbing, and
the old gentleman began to feel a little
foolish. She, however, took it all seri-
ously enough.
"I am ready, sir," she said, with her
tragic little air.
It was what they usually said in her
romances upon such occasions. Had she
been a man she would also have folded
her arms. She had forgotten what the
women did with theirs, and this lack of
memory caused her to blur the outline
of her pose. For she fell frankly to
preening herself with those dainty lit-
tle pats and pluckings whereby a wo-
man is wont to deal with a disordered
toilet before appearing abroad. There
was such a charm of nature and inno-
cence in it-though it might as well
have been finished coquetry-that Sir
Bovil felt himself unbending in cynical
amusement at his weakness.
"But you are not a prisoner," he ob-
jected, and found himself guilty of a
smile of kindly superiority as a man
will have in answering some serious
fancy of a child.
"I would rather not leave my coun-
trymen, sir,'" she answered.
"I fear there's no means of your re-
maining with them."
"Why not, sir? I was taken with
"But, my dear madam, they are go-
ing to prison."
"I can go to prison too."
"Oh, but that will never do," he
said, with an irrepressible smile at her
serious airs. "We don't make war on
He could fancy she started strangely
at his words, and could not tell why,
not knowing how near an echo they
were of some she had heard before.
"That is how we fight ladies," Curtis
had said when she was alone with him
and disarmed in her shame upon the
sands. Now her eyes bent keenly upon
Sir Bevil, the flush had faded, the baby
look was gone, and there stood before
him an unhappy woman.
''What is it you want with me, then?"
she asked, dropping her eyes.
"Nay, madam," he protested. "I
came to take your commands."'
"Oh, I have none," she said wearily.
"But you are free, madam. "
"Am I? Free to do as I would?"
"Perfectly, madam, and not only
free, but, as a refugee, a welcome
guest. '
"But I am not exactly a refugee. Our
family refused to emigrate. I had to es-
cape hurriedly by reason of a local out-
break. I had no intention of leaving
"Is it your desire to return, then?"
"No, no I" she cried, and put up her
hands to her eyes, as if shutting out a
sight she could not bear to see. "I am
free, you say," she went on, "free to
go where I will?"
"Perfectly, madam. "
"Then I will follow the prisoners.
Where do they go?"
"To Portsmouth, but 'tis a garrison
town full of soldiers and sailors, and no
place for a lady of-er-your appear-
ance to be alone in. "
"M. Lemaitre will take care of me. "
"M. Lemaitre?"
"The officer who commanded the lug-
ger when she was recaptured. So soon
as he is adinittcd to parole I shall be
able to be with him. "
The old gentleman cleared his throat
"I regret, mnad.ir." ho said~(, "that
on the question of the treatment cf pris-
oners of war the rolatio7;s between our
countries are severely, utrai d just now.
There is a certain edict of the conven-

tion' --
"I know it,'" Ahe interrupted. "I
have heard it saol-en of. "
'T;s greatly to be regretted," he
went oni, a liitto relieved.
"Indeed it is,, sir. BiEt my father says
-I mean,, used to say-we must expect
a fevw errors o;,- judgment from a new
government. '
"Your father was a philosopher!" he
remarked, taken aback at her cool view
of the outrageous edict.
"A political philosopher, sir," she
answered, with an air of demure van-
"Ah!" ejaculated the old gentleman
antipathetically, for as an English coun-
ty magistrate he classed such people
with criminal lunatics.
"But, no doubt," he continued, some-
thing hardened that she was only a it-

tie Jacoiln carter Tll,,"the matter will
shortly be arranged. Meanwhile the
consequence for us is that M. Lemaitre
will not be admitted to parole-at least,
not at present. 'Tis indeed greatly to
be regretted-but you will be quite
alone in Portsmouth."
So here was another blow to bring
home to her the condition she was in.
Her father, her mother, her brother-
one by one they had been stripped away,
leaving her more and more exposed.
And now here was her last covering
snatched from her like the rest. It was
the more disturbing because the tie that
had drawn her to the luckless old officer
was that she saw in him another vic-
tim of Curtis' resistless pushing.
For the moment the blow was crush-
ing. She saw herself doomed sooner or
later to call to the lieutenant for help.
She could answer nothing, and, at a loss
what-to do, stood in a miserable silence,
so that the old man began to feel sorry
for her again.
"Are there no friends of your father?"
he began.
"My father is dead," she broke in,
and that in a voice which made Sir
Bevil bow his head. "He had but few
friends. I think his opinions lost him
many. He refused to emigrate, you
"But there are many French in the
country now," he suggested, to get
away from the painful subject. "Per-
haps some kindred of his or"-
"All our kin," she interrupted has-
tily, "went with the princes-eastward.
Who can tell where they may be now?"
"Dear! dear!" exclaimed the old
man. 'Tis very unfortunate. Is there
no one you can think of? No one at
all?" he said at last, in a forlorn hope
that she would suggest his son and so
fortify him in his resolve to keep them
"No," she answered, with a little
hopeless negation of the head. "You
have loft me no one. "
"You must let me," he said hastily,
"you must let me conduct you to an
inn. Then we can see what's to be
"Thank you, sir. You are very kind,"
she answered, with a grateful lock at
him that lit up her face into life again.
For so dark was her distress upon her
that even so small a ray of light was
like sunrise. Upon the scaffold the
shortest reprieve is a new birth.
"Oh, but I have no money," she
went on, and then, looking ruefully
down at her disordered dress, "and no
She began mechanically to smooth
her crumpled skirt, till suddenly she
left off with a cry of pain, and clapped
her hand to her wounded arm.
"What's the matter?" exclaimed Sir
Bevil anxiously.
"'Oh, nothig'," "e- asweiG--th.

pain in her face belied. "I had forgot-
ten my-I mean, that I had hurt my

"Something stuck through it. That's
"God bless my soul How was that?
Why, you look quite faint. Let me call
somebody. "
"Oh, no. It was only for a moment.
'Tis nothing, believe me. "
But he would not be content, and
dragged from her the tale of the tub.
She told it with the prettiest air of diffi-
dence, and now and then a wince of
pain, so that before the end of it the old
gentleman was breathless with admira-
tion and tenderness.
"God bless my soul!" he ejaculated.
"My dear young lady, why didn't you
tell me before?"
"Oh, it wasn't worth speaking of. It
has hardly hurt me at all till today."'
"Eh, what Not hurt till today!
This will never do. It can't be healing
properly. See here, my dear, you must
come home with me and be cured. My
sisters shall nurse you. Damme, it will
give them something to do. Georgia is
wonderful at cuts and bruises. She doc-
tors everybody, except Sophia. She won't
have her near. But Georgia's marvel-
ous clever all the same. God bless my
soul! Wiped the blood off the blade! I
never heard of such a thing."
The magistrate had quite disappeared
in him, and had given place to a solici-
tous air of fatherly benevolence, to
which, in her craving for sympathy and
support, it would have been hard not to
"I should be such a trouble," she
said after a little.
"Oh," cried he, "I'll not take no."
"You are very kind, very kind," she
said, looking at him with brimming
"Well, that's settled," he replied,
blowing his nose vigorously. "Now we
had better be getting ready to go."
She had taken the flame colored scarf,

and was folding it on her lap with one
"Can't I help?" asked Sir Bevil.
"Would you, sir? I don't like to
trouble you. My arm is not bad at all,
but if I don't use a sling I forget. If
you would not mind tying it behind."
She gave him the scarf, and turned
her back, holding the two ends deftly
in one hand behind her, where the short
fluffy locks of her tumbled hair crept in
caressing eddies about her neck. He
took the thing in both hands nervously,
puffing out his cheeks for courage over
a task he doubted was beyond him, and,
while he fumbled with the ends, fell to
hissing quietly, as if he were dressing a
"I am afraid that it is a little too
long," she said when he got the ends
knotted, and then presently, when he had
tried again, hissing more resolutely than
ever, "and now 'tis a trifle short. I fear
I give you a world of trouble."
"No, no; I'm so plaguy clumsy. It
gets mixed up with your hair so.''
"Never mind. There! That is quite
right. Thank you a thousand times."'
She turned round to show him how
cleverly he had done it with so pretty
an air of gratitude that the old gentle-
man was quite proud of his work.

ready, I suppose?" he asked. .
"I have only to put on my hat."
"Well, don't hury. I was ouly think-,
ing of the dragoons. It won't do td
keep them waiting." .
"I forgot the dragoons. Ohl" she'
cried ai Sir Bevil turned to the door.
"What is it?" he asked, coming back.,
"I don't see how I shall ever get it,
on," she said, looking at the hat she
held forlornly by the ribbons. "My arm
is so stiff today; I am sure I can never
tie the strings."
"I don't know whether I"- he be-
gan anxiously.
"Oh, 'tis not difficult, if you wouldn't
mind. But I protest I am ashamed td
trouble you so."
The old gentleman looked desperately,
uncomfortable when she had given himn
the soft broad brimmed hat and was
standing innocently before him with
downcast eyes, like a good little girl be-
ing dressed. Collecting his fortitude,.
with more low hissing, he took the nn-
manageable headgear by each side, as he.
vaguely remembered having seen nurses
do it, and settled it on her hair.
"That feels right, she said. "Now,
if you could tie the strings."
She poked out her chin to make it
easy for him and so stood patiently,
while he fumbled with the ribbons. It
was so, he remembered, children stood
under the same conditions. For all his
hissing, lie found the work as hard as
he feared.
"D-n the things!" he muttered at
the second failure to make a bow.
"Never mind," she said soothingly,.
with her chin still patiently tilted and
the most bewitching air of innocent sur-
render in the world. "It doesn't matter
very much."
"Nay, I'll do it. I'll try again," he
answered, with warming determination,,
and he set to fumbling once more. In
the midst of it the cuddy door opened,
and there stood Curtis in amused amaze-
"The prisoners are all ashore, sir,"
he announced, "and the boat is along-
side again."
"All right, my boy," muttered the
old gentleman, quite absorbed in hia
work, for he did not leave it at his
son's entry, nor did Lucile move, being
by no means sorry that her pursuer
should see she had a protector and wais
on terms of intimacy with him.
"D-n it!" said Sir Bevil again.,
"Look ye here, Dick. Come and lend a
hand. You are better at knotting than
me. Let him have a try, my dear. My
son will do it in a minute."
"Your son.!" she cried, starting front
him, and then, as she looked from one
to the other with her old look of help-
less reproach, "Oh it isn't fairly"
She had been duped; the last hope,
was gne;, the refN- she had fund was

Free Coinage Would Take Half of All,
Act Before It Is Too Late.
At the annual meeting of the Savings
Banks association of the state of New
York the following resolutions were
Resolved, That this association, representing
the interests of 1,700,000 depositors, with de-
posits aggregating over $700.000,0009, solemnly
protests against any and all efforts to change
the gold standard now existing of the currency
of the country and affirms its conviction that
any departure from this standard will not only
impr.ir the prosperity of the laboring classes.
but that the only classes or individuals to be
benefited would be the capitalist and foreign
investor, who would be quick to take advan-
tage of the rise and ultimate fall in prices
sure to follow a premium on gold.
Resolved, That in our judgment the future:
prosperity of the country and the welfare of
the people demand not only that the gold
standard shall be maintained, but the cur-
rency system now in use shall be so changed,
and remodeled as to meet and adapt it to the
increasing needs of comrn-eree, and equal in se-.
curity and credit .-i:.L ', e best in circulation
by any of the civilized ri-.itiihns of the earth.
Every dollar in these savings banks
is worth 100 cents ini g'cld and represents
labor measured in gold. Free coinage at
16 to 1 will shrink thcse dollars to about
50 cents. Instead of gettil:g back $700,-
000,000 these 1,700,000 depositors
would get back .000,000,000 in dollars
of present value. Perhaps they have
worked and saved for years to see one-
half of their earnings wiped out by the
destructive free silver tornado-more
awful than all of the tornadoes and
earthquakes that have visited this coun-
try since Columbus discovered it.
The free silver cyclone will not strike
us unless we invite it to come our way.
In fact the 4,875,000 depositors, who
have $1,800,000,000( in the 1,017 sav-
ings banks of this country, have it in
their power to prevent the invitation.'
They have but to vote solidly against
any party and any candidate that sup-
ports the free silver robber scheme and

their savings will be spared. They can
easily obtain the assistance of the 1,750,-
000 stockloldcrs who have $450,000,000
invested in the 6,000 building and loan
associations of this country.
Let the 8,000,000 or 10,000,000 who
havo savings, in cue form or another,
clearly understand what 16 to 1 means
to them and the jig is up with the cheap.
dollar agitation. The 5,000,000 .or
6,000,000 holders of life insurance poli-
cies also have much at stake. They have
paid their premiums in gold and are en-
titled to have their policies paid in gold.
All such investors should study this sil-
ver question and learn on which side
their interests lie before it is too late
to save themselves. If they can see no
moral reason why they should not vote
for a fraudulent change of staudards'of
value, perhaps they can see a selfish rea-
son that will cause them' to vote for
honest money.-B. W. H.

A Chance to Make M1oney.
In the past three months I have
cleared $660.75 selling Dish Washers. I
did most of the work, my brother helped
some. I expect to do better next m .nth,
as every Dish Washer sold advertises
itself, and sells several more; I don't
have to leave the house. People hear
about the Dish Washers and send for
them, they are so cheap. A 'y lady or
gentleman can make money in this bus-
iness, as every family wants a Dish
Washer. Any of our readers who have
energy enough to apply for an agency
can easily make from $8 to $10 a day.
You can get full particulars by address-
ing the Mound City Dish Washer Co.,
St. Louis, Mo. Try it and publish your
success for the benefit of others. C.A.D.

Ice Cream Now Made in a Min-
I have an ice cream freezer that will
freeze cream perfectly in one minute:as
it is such a wonder a crowd will always
be around, so anyone can make from
five to six dollars a day selling cream,
and from ten to twenty dollars a day
selling Freezers, as people will always
buy an article when it is demonstrated
that they can make money by so doing.
The crean is frozen instantly and is
smooth and free from lumps. I have
done so well myself and have friends
succeeding so well that I felt it my duty
to let others know of the opportunity,as
I feel confident that any person in any
locality can mahe money, as any person
can seil cream and the Freezer sells
itself. J. F. Casey' & Co., 1143 St.

It is often difficult to convince peo-
ple their blood is impure, until dread-
ful carbuncles, abscesses, boils, scrof-
ula or salt rheum, are painful proof of
the fact. It is wisdom now, or when-
ever there is any indication of

blood, to take Hood's Sarsaparilla, and
prevent such eruptions and suffering.
"I had a dreadful carbuncle abscess,
red, fiery, fierce and sore. The doctor at-
tended me over seven weeks. When the
abscess broke, the pains were terrible, and
I thought I should not live through it. I

Sarsaparilla, that I decided to take it, and
my husband, who was suffering with
boils, took it also. It soon purified our


built me up and restored my health so
that, although the doctor said I would

Free Silver Fits.
The financial Lumbugs who are trying
to throw the country into a panic so
that they can have a chance to try their
patent silver pills in doses .cf 16 to 1
are very much like the quack doctor
who was called in to see a sick man.
Not knowing what was the matter with
the patient the doctor began to shout
and jump around the bed. When asked
to explain his extraordinary behavior he
said: "Oh, I just want to scare him
into fits. Then I can cure him, for I'm
death on fits."
The silverite quacks think if they can
only howl calamity long and loud
enough they can scare manufacturers
and other business men into shutting
down, and thus bring on hard times.
Then they fancy that the idle and dis-
contented workers will rush to the agi-
tators, whose threats of debasing the
currency caused the business depression,
and ask them for their great 50 cent
dollar remedy for financial fits. But
they are mistaken. The American peo-
ple do not want to be made ill merely
for the sake of trying some cheap money t
nostrum. They have no confidence in c
the free silver doctors, and will give t

How to Tell Good Money.
Henri Cernuschi is an eminent polit-
ical economist and an able advocate of
international bimetallism. He is often
quoted by free coinage advocates who
would never accept his test for good and
bad money. It is as follows: "It is by
the ordeal of fire that money can be
tried. The coins which, being melted
lown, refrain the entire value for which
hey were legal tender before they were
melted down, are good money. Those
which do not retain it are not good'

Be Kind to the Living.
Written for the Buoy.
Oh, why do we weep,
For those that are gone?
Our tears can then avail not;
Better give them a kiss,
While yet they are here,
And in death, let them be forgot.
A kind loving word,
Is food for the heart,
And oft soothes weary pain;
Then be not so charry,
For when they are gone,
You cannot recall them again.
Then cherish them well
E're they shall be called,
And life's bright sun e set;
Wait not to kiss
Their clay cold lips,
Or shed tears of regret.

Democratic Speaking in hliipley
VERNON, Fla., Aug. 27, 1896.
ED. BuoY:-On last Friday even-
ing we drove into Chipley to hear
the greatest orators of the state of
Florida expound tile truth on Satur-
day following. We had only been
there a short time before being in-
vited by the committee of arrange-
ments to accompany tlheim to the
train to meet tle great and gallant
Bloxhain, Senator Pasco and W. N.
Seats, cai.didate for state superin-
tendent. After shaking Lands with
them and bidding them God speed in
their successful campaign. we took
supper with Sheriff Allen's lady (tihe
sheriff being absent.) We then in
company with S. M. Robinson iid
Thonas Jones, of tle Banner, went
to the hotel where those distinguished
gentlemen were stopping for the
n:ght. There wve heard them discuss
popism and its extent in Florida,
which was confined to West Florida,
with but little of it in any other part
of the state. They claimed 15,000
majority for democracy.
We erjoed tl,e hoispialit of Mr.
and Mrs ,Jones during the reniainder
of the night. After an early break-
fast on Saturday morning, we began
to hustle around among the generous
people of the city until the hour came
for the speaking.
When Gov. Bloxhamn mounted tlic
stand-thie academy being filled to
overflowing--he was greeted with
great applause. He delivered one of
the greatest speeches that we have
ever heard in the defencc of democ-
racy, right and justice. The house
was continually broung]t down by
cheem after cheer for lthe great states-
mIin. After a speech of an hour lie
gave way to Senator Pasco, who
filled his time noblv, by sustaingil
tie principles ofl democracy. Thenu

Postmaster General Wilson Explains What
Free Coiaage Means to Farmers and
In a recent letter to Dr. M. W. Gam-
ble of Mcor-field, W. Va., Postnmaster
General William L. Vilson makes the
following clear statement of the real
meaning and effects of free coinage:
"Free coinage of silver at 16 to 1
means that any private owner of silver
bullion may bring it to the mints and
have it coined without charge into dol-
lars of the present weight and fineness,
which, of course, would thereafter be
worth as much as and no more than the
bullion of which they were coined,
which is now about 50 cents to the dol-
lar. No gold would then be coined, be-
cause with the bullion necessary to coin
a gold dollar could be purchased enough
silver bullion to coin two silver dollars.
No one would use gold dollars to pay
debts which he could pay with less val-
uable silver dollars. The first effect of
free silver would be to drive out of cir-
culation the $625,000,000 of gold and
to sink all silver and paper money to
the standard of the silver dollar.
"There is no country in the world
that could make this sudden change in
its money standard without plunging
headlong into an indefinite period of
panic, bankruptcy and distress, with
disastrous check to its development and
long idleness to its industries. The hope
held out to debtors that they would be
able to pay in cheaper dollars would
never be realized, because they would be
at once pressed for their debts, and in
such a disorganization of trade and of
all business they could not get the cheap-
er dollars, and the idea that free silver
would give us a larger currency would
not be realized, if ever, in the lifetime
of the present generation.
"The farmer is urged to support free
silver on the ground that his products
have gone down with the gold standard
and would rise with the silver standard.
They would not rise as fast or as much
as the things he has to buy, and he ought
to see that, while wheat and some other
things have gone down of recent years,
it is because of the immensely increased
production and the speed and cheapness
with which all parts of the world can
carry their wheat by steam car and
steamship to the markets which fix its
"But farm produces, on the average,
have not fallen near so much as the
things which the farmer has to buy, and
labor has steadily increased in wages in
all the years of the gold standard, thus
giving the laboring man, with fewer
hours of work, larger control over the
necessaries and comforts of life.
"Out of all the catastrophes of such a
change no men would emerge unharmed
except those who own gold or who own
silver bullion or mines, and when we
had once gotten to a silver basis and be-
gun to build up again the credit system
upon it-that marvelous system which
has made possible our modern develop-
ment and which represents many times
in currency circulation and power the
money basis on which it rests-we
should have a cumbersome, heavy, in-
ferior metal money, like the few unpro-
gressive countries of the world, and sur-
render to our great commercial rivals
the best metal and the best mechanism
for trade and commerce.
"If congress tomorrow had the power
and should enact a law compelling all
the railroads of the country immediately
to change from broad gauge to narrow
gauge, it would not more disorganize
the transportation business of the coun-
try and more cripple its efficiency there-
after, as compared with other nations,
than for us to pass at once from a gold
to a silver standard."
All Prices Would Advance.
Let those farmers who believe free
silver will cause the prices of farm
products to advance ask themselves this
simple question, Will free silver cause
wheat to advance to $1 a bushel, or corn
to 50 cents a bushel, and not cause a $10
suit of clothes to advance to $20, or a

Gray Hair Made Dark.
I saw in your paper a statement that
Zulu Vulier would restore any head -of
hair to natural color in three week.s. As
I was very gray I sent for a sample pack-
age, and in less than three weeks my hair
was perfectly restored to natural color.
My wife's hair was a light red, and by
using Zulu Vulier, her hair is now a beau-
tifulaulbnrn. Any one can get a sample
package of Zuln Vulier by sending 21
two-cent stamps to WVilson & Co., New

Concord, Ohio, and if it does not restore
the hair to natural color in three weeks
they will return *your stamps; it not only
restores the hair ro natural color, but will
stop the hair falling out immediately and
is one of tie best hair tonics made, and
you take no risk, and if it does not satisfy
you perfectly they will return your stamps.

Churning Done ii one Miinute.
I have tried t(lie Lightning ChurnIm yvu
recently described in your paper, and it is
certainly a wonder. I cal: churn in less
than one minute, nnd ftie butter is ele-
gant, and you get considerably more but-
ter than when you use a coinmion churn.
I took the agency for the churn here and
every butler maker that sees it bu~s one.
I have sold three duzen and they give the
best of satisfaction. I know I call sell 100
in this township, as they churn so quickly,
make so much more butter tan common
churns and are so cheap. Some one in
every township can make two or three
hundred dollars selling these churns. By
addressing J. F. Casey & Co., St. Louis,
pou cani g t circulars aind full informa-
lion so .on c n iimake ii money r igihtt at
ihIne. I have made $0 in the p.ist two
weeks iand I never sold anything before
ii my lite A IFARMIR.
A Good Wiiun Miill-Make it
I maide uoe ofi tlhe Fcopl' v Jind mills
which' I saw recommended in your paper
recently. It only tost me $9.40 and is a
splendid nill; my well is deep, but it
pumps it all right, aud with very little
wind; the neighbors all like it, and as I
am a kind of a carpenter, I have agreed
to put up nine mills already, on which I
can make a nice profit, and there are
many others for whom I can put up mills
this fall. I don't see why every farmer
should not have a wine mill, when they
can make it themselves for less than $10.
Ady one Can get diagrams and complete
directions for making the wind mill by
sending 18 two-cent stamps to pay post-
age, etc., to E.D.Wilson & Co., Allegheflv,
Pa., and there can be dozens of them put
up in any locality by any one that has the
energy to do it. A FARMEB.

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country
Andrews [Bay and to

adjacent to St

Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
'1u 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 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 such tract shall lbe a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The 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 hearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, tlums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
w.lriuts, Japai 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 yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss.
rThe 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.
RE M E M B IE R the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work hasbeen performed. CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED.

Therefore, we want free silver.
The government can make 50 cents
worth of metal worth 100 cents in gold

free coinage such a dollar would buy
only half as much goods as a gold dol-

SThe prosperity of the American peo-
ple depends on the amount of wealth
produced and the fairness with which
it is distributed among the producers.
Measuring products in silver instead of
gold would neither create any more
wealth nor distribute it more justly.
Therefore, we want free silver.
The country is suffering because there
is not half enough money to do business
with. As soon as a free coinage law is
passed our $600,000,000 in gold will all
be withdrawn, and we shall lose all
that amount. from circulation. There-
fcre, we want free silver.
There is something wrong with the
country somehow, though we don't
know what it is nor how to cure it.
But everything will come all right if a

Some Sixteen to One 'Logic.
Mexico has free silver. The Mexican
people are very poor. Therefore, we
want free silver.
Wages in this country are too low.
Wages are higher here and in all the
gold standard countries than in China,
India and other silver using nations.
Therefore, we want free silver.
We believe in the double standard
under which both metals will be used
to measure values. Free coinage at 16
to 1 will drive out all cur gold and put
our currency on the silver basis. There-
fore, we want free silver.
We favor an honest dollar which shall
be just to all the people. The adoption
of the silver standard will enable debt-
ors to repudiate one-half of their obliga-
tions. Therefore, we want free silver.
Gold dollars are too scarce and dear
to serve as money of the people. Under
free coinage a silver dollar will always

Silver Question Brought Home.
Mr. Retail Salesman! Your salary is,
we will say, $15 per week. You pay $4
for board; a suit of clothes costs you
$12; underwear 50 cents per garment,
and so on. How would you like it if
you still got the same *15 and had to
pay nearly $8 for board, nearly $24 for
a suit, nearly $1 per garment for under-
wear, and so on? That's what free silver
would mean to you, for some time at
any rate.-Dry Goods Economist.
Would Malke Silver Unpopular.
If all the banks in any community
would, for one month, pay the checks
presented in silver, the silver craze
would cease to trouble that community.
How to Tell Good rdoney.
Henri Cernuschi is an eminent polit-
ical economist and an able advocate of
international bimetallism. He is often
quoted by free coinage advocates who
would never accept his test for good and
bad money. It is as follows: "It is by
the ordeal of fire that money can be
tried. The coins which, being melted
down, retain the entire value for which
they were legal tender before they were I
melted down, are good money. Those
which do not retain it are not goodi

Bryan's British Bugaboo.
While the Chicago convention was in
session the Hon. W. J. Bryan tele-
graphed to the Philadelphia Press that
"our people will never declare at the
ballot boxes that they are dependent
upon foreigners for a financial system."
Perhaps these words mean something
to those who see prosperity for every-
body in 16 to 1 free coinage, and perhaps
they are used only to display a sort of
buncombe patriotism with which to at-
tract voters.
Why doesn't Bryan get up and howl
in Chinoso, Japanese or in some other
white metal country language that we
will never be dependent upcn foreigners
for the very words with which we coin
our ideas into language so that we can
exchange them with other's p;eas?
Why doesn't he declared against using
the same system of weights and meas-
ures used in England and other foreign
countries? Why doesn't he declare our in-
dependence of multiplication tables used
in foreign countries? He asks triumph-
antly, "Are the American people able
to attend to their own business?" Are
we not also able to make our own arith-
metic? Why do we imitate foreign
countries by using the same multiplica-
tion table for both buyers and sellers?
Let us cut loose from this imported ta-
ble and make our own table in such a
way that when we arc sellers the product
of certain numbers will be at least dou-
ble the product of the same numbers
when we are buyers.
If there are any votes in this antifor-
eign racket let's work it for all it is
Increasing Output of Cold.
The continuously increasing produc-
tion of gold is knocking the props from
under the claim of the silverites that
the,precious metal is getting so scarce
that "there isn't enough to go arcaurd"
and that the world's currency is con-
Notwithstanding the fact that the
total output of gold has doubled during
the last ten years the estimates for the
present calendar, given to the public a
few days ago by our mint director, Mr.
Preston, one of the highest authorities
in the world, fixes the total so high that
it will be nearly double that of 1890.
Here are some of the totals since 1875
and the estimate for 1896:
183........ $22, 0,00 is ........ t130,659,000
18C5........ 03,000,03 1830........ .1 848,700
1804 ........ 1SO,ECa;,1 0 1S'5 ........ 108, .35,C00
1893 ........ 1,7,C2d, "0 I ........ 106,436,803
1882 ........ i4,8 5,1(00 1,75 ........ C7,50 ,000(
This means a larger addition to the
world's monetary stock than was made
in the years when the mints were open
to free coinage of both gold and silver,
and it is pleasant to note that the
United States will again head the list
of producing countries, with an output
of at least fifty millions.
If there was any reason for the claim
that gold is appreciating because of its
scarcity that claim had long since lost
its reason.
The Silverite Way of Encouraging Capital.
Thl pupils in a count_7 school were
told that they must love and obey their
kind teacher. A small boy who had
brce::on one of the rules was called up
by the teacher and corderedc to take cff
his jacket. Then tch teacher applied the
rod, saying, 'Johnie, you little rascal,
I'l raake you love 1in2."
The ugaitaters wvho.are preten-ding that
they want to encourage the production
and investment t of capitcld by mrlking
money cheaper are prccccding in tr-ch
the amoe w"ay as il .t tearhcr. They de-
rounce capitalists as "Shylocks" and
"money sharks" ard thr':.'.c, to confis-

Every one who objects to thei- free coin-

legal tender dollar is charged with be-
ing the agent of co..spiratcrs w.ho are
trying to corner the country's money.
Does any seroible farmer, worker or
business man, who knows the absolute
necessity for capital in all the indus-
tries which make a country prosperous,
believe that a pcliy cyf hate, enmity
and persecution toward capitalists is a
good way to encourage mn-u to save
money or invest it?

somewhere el:e in his vast dCmain. The
same personage again made his appear-
ance to lure the French people to finan-
cial ruin when John Law acted as his
fiat moncy agelt in the Mississippi
scheme. He turned up again to persuade
the French convention to print millions
of assignata on the pledge of -the confis-
cated lands of the nobility and clergy.
His cloven fcot was exhibited once more
when congress was induced to issue an
immense volume of legal tender paper;
and he laughed with Satanic glee when
this greenback currency depreciated to
less than 50 cents on the dollar. He is
now busy at the lugs of the numerous
victims of the free silver mania, whis-
pering to them of the wonderful pros-
perity that would flow from the coinage
of disks of silver, worth 50 cents each,
into full legal tender dollars.
Whenever the Altgelds and other
demagogic advocates of fiat money,

currency or of depreciated silver, under-
take to trace the history of such methods
of finance they should give the devil his
due. -Philadelphia Record.
Kentucky's wishing for free silver as
a panacea for all evils will never lessen

In 1892 it was nip and tuck between
the Dcmccr, and Republicans in Mich-
igan. In 1894 the Democrats put a dis-
tinguiehed and popular man up for gov-
ernor on a straight 16 to 1 platform,
making that the issue, and the majority
against him was 106,393. In less than
six months there happened to be another
state election, and the Democrats still
clung to 16 to 1, and in a midyear con-
test, as it was, the majority against
them amounted to 80,407. That was
enough for them. This year they tie




First Began Speculations In theo Liddle
Ages-His Method Explained In Goethe's
"Faust"-Had a Hand In the John Law
Bubble-The French Assignats-Ameri-
can Greenbacks Now Busy Pushing
Along the Sixteen to One Scheme.
In a recent interview Governor Alt-
geld of Illinois told how many hundred
years gold and silver were maintained
in circulation at a fixed ratio by the fiat
of government. It is not disputed that
whenever the legal ratio has coincided
with the market value of the two metals
they have circulated together without
any need of legislative fiat, but when-
ever the legal ratio did net coincide
with the commercial value of the t-wo
metals, having equal privileges at the
mint, the coinage that was undervalued
dropped from circulation by a law more
potent than the decree of government.
Of course depreciated currency can be
kept in circulation so long as a govern-
ment may be willing and able to keep
the promise to redeem it in standard
money, as is the case with the silver
dollar of the United States and thle 5
franc piece of France. The enormous
cost and embarrassment of a fiat cur-
rency to the government of the U:ited
States are witnessed in the frequent
borrowings of gold to provide for.its re-
To Governor Altgeld it is a matter cf
indifference, as he says, whether the
legal ratio for the free coinage of silver
be 1G to 1 or 8 to 1 with gold, since the
fiat of the government would be as cm-
nipotcet in the one case as in the other.
But in giving the history of fir-t cur-
rency for the instruction of Illincis edi-
tors and speakers he might have men-
tioned in the course of his narrative the
royal coin clippers who knavishly de-
based the money of their realms and
meanly defrauded their subjects, just
as the silverites propose to do with the
monetary standard of the United States.
The governor, however, does not go
back quite far enough in tracing the
origin of fiat money. We have the high
authority of Goethe, who deeply pene-
trated the nature of things, that the
devil-Mephistopheles-waa the invent-
or of this kind of currency (for which
see the second part cf "Faust").
Far back in the middle ages we read
that the affairs of the Germanic empire
were in the greatest disorder. The treas-
ury was empty and utterly unable to re-
deem its obligations. The army was
ready to mutiny because of the long ar-
rearages of pay. The courtiers in the
imperial palace complained of the dep-
rivation of the luxuries to which they
had been accustomed. Discontent and
distress prevailed throughout the em-
At this juncture Mephistopheles ap-
peared on the scene, as he always dces
on such occasions. l e proceeded at once
to issue fiat currency under the author-
ity of his imperial majesty. At first the
emperor was shocked at the monstrous
fraud, and indignantly asked who had
dared to frg the imperial nuame,
threate-ning at the same time that such
a crime shouldd not go unpunished. But
the imperial scruples were soon removed
by the argamients cf Mephistopheles and
the brilliant !success f the scheme. The
treasury was ,i' 'ely replenished. The
army, having received its pay, was eag-
er to re-en!liri. In the imperial palace
the courtiers, and even tho pages, had
"money to burn," and prosperity again
dawned upon the empire. In his aston-
ishment the emperor asked: "And dces
this pass for good gold with my people?
is it accepted for full pay by the army
and the court? Munh as I wonder, I
must let it go."
But the court fcol could not quite un-
derstand this n:magic paper, of which he
had received 5,000 crowns, al-d he asked
Mephistopheles if this was good money's
Mephisto--You can have first what-
ever your gullet and belly may aesirc.
Fool-And c.an I buy with it fields
and hcuse and .atdlo?
Mephisto-Of course! Demand only
that, and it shall not be wanting to ycS.
Fool-And castle, with forest and
deer park and fish pond?
Mephisto--Truly. I would like to see
you a worshipful lord.
Fcol-This very evening I will rock
myself in a landed estate.
Mephisto (aloue)--Who now doubts
the wisdom of our fool?
The other fools held on to their magic
money until it withered to nothingness
in their hands. When the inevitable
