With such sentiments as those re

What Will the t'arner Do J j
The plutocrats tell the farmer that
he should attend to his own business.
That he may perhaps be able to run
his farm, but as for running the gov
ernment he knows about as much as
the ayerage horse. Eveey man to his
trade they say. They—the gold bugs
have been running the country and
they know the lick it is done with and
don't want any help from the hayseed
ers. A farmers place they tell him is
mauling rails, but a financiers is hand
ling money. Now the farmer seems
displeased with the way it has been
handled, he wants a change. But the
gold bug has sent him word that if he,
the gold bug, catches him, the farmer,
monkeying with the affairs of the gov
ernment again or undertakes to talk
money to him, he, the g. b., will make
things hotter than a harvest field the
last of June. The insolence of the
manner in which the farmer is address
ed by the average New York paper,
the autocratic railroad magnate, and
the national bank officials, ought to
teach even so dumb an animal as a
farmer, that he is regarded by them
exactly in proportion to the amount of
money they can make off him. Fur
ther than that they care no more
about him than for the worm they
grind beneath their heels. Next Tues
day the farmer can make it a little
warm for the gold bug. Will he do it? j
All railroad charters hereafter will
contain a clause giving them the ex
clusive right to name the presidents of
the United States. Virginia will be
among the first of the States to supply
this much needed want. Mr. M. E.
Ingalis has shown the necessity for it.

Could two men naturally equal when
turned loose in the world to make their
way, be expected to fight an equal
battle if one should lose his right arm?
Why then is silver denounced as being
unable to keep its parity with gold, in
its progress through the business
world, when a hostile Congress stop
ped not only at the severance of a right
arm, but actually cut off its head ?
A farmer or laborer who votes with
the bankers and trusts and millionaires,
does so with just as much reason as if
he would go out and set fire to his
barn or house. He helps people to
continue their robbery of him in the
ane instance, and thus renders himself
poorer, in the other he makes himself
poorer in a plain straightforward way.
Both lead to to the same end—poverty.

Judge Jas. Keith, president of our
Supreme Court, through the Alexan
dria Gazette of Saturday, announces
his purpose to support Palmer and
Buckner. It is believed that Judge
Keith is the only member of that body
who will support that ticket or any
other ticket excspt Bryan and Sewall.
It is to be regretted that on this na
tional question there should have been
a divided court.
It is understood that spotters are to
be sent about over this State to watch
the election officers and detect fraud.
This is only to be done in the South
and is in the interest of the gold party.
We do not know where they are to be
enlisted, nor from what source they
may come, but when they start for
their respectiye places of business they
should provide themselves with all
necessary paraphernalia, amongst
which had better be a coffin.

Mark Hanna has opened the money
floodgates in Illinois this week. He
has hired all the howlers and bullies
he could to stir up strife and do dirty
work. He has rented theatres in which
to play McKinley as the hero, and
Bryan as the villian, and given every
body free tickets. He has poets to
write verses, and the organ grinder to
grind songs, vocal with praises of "debt
payer" William. He has chartered
Ki. or rather his friendly allies the
ads, have furnished him trains to
persons to all republican meet
ings, and he has arranged that persons
be not carried to democratic meetings.
He has declared the day before elec
tion day to be "Flag day," and has
ordered all the faithful to decorate
with flags, and adopted the flag as the
emblem of McKinley, and Hannaism.
He has also hired spies and spotters to
go about in the throngs and see who
can be arrested and who intimidated.

STAUNTON SPECTATOR AND VINDICATOR.
Plutocracy has made its worst mis- j
take. It has began denouncing the I
South and flaunting the bloody shirt.
This shows desperation, and that they
are in their last ditch. There was
little to attract the Southern man to
Wm. McKinley even when he tried to
Boothe their fears about force bills and
other dreaded measures. But the only
bridge over which they could cross has
been swept away by this sanguinary j
flood of abuse.
A private letter received in Wash-1
ington last Friday from one of the I
j twelve thousand employees of Swift
1 and Company's establishment in Chi-1
cago, says that though all of them
wear McKinley badges and shout for I
McKinley, at least eight thousand of j
them will vote for Bryan, and that
such will be the case with a like pro
portion of the seventy-five thousand
men who were recently coerced into
marching in the McKinley procession
in that c'ty.
In the death of ex-Speaker Chas. F.
Crisp of- Georgia, the democratic party
loses one of its ablest leaders, the cause
of silver one of its strongest and brav
est advocates, the country one of its
most influential and talented citizens,
and the State of Georgia especially,
sustains a loss which she will deeply
and sadly feel. She has had many
great men, among whom of recent
years have been Alex. H. Stephens.Ben

Before our paper is again placed in
the hands of our readers, this country
will have passed through one of the
most exciting periods in the nation's
Ktory. Either the people will have
isen a president, or the corporations
will have chosen one for them, time
will tell us which. All this week the
great commoner Wm. J. Bryan, will
be fighting the people's battle, in the
very heart and centre of this union.
He will fight it as no man has ever
fought. He wi.l be confronted with
forces no human has ever met. He
will look in that length of time upon
more human beings and into more faces
than the eyes of one man ever beheld
in the same length of time. He will
meet every where the hired ruffians
that Hanna ha? turned loose upon him.
Yet he will meet also the sympathetic
joyous faces of the multitudes who
will be gathered at every point where
he is to be seen and heard, to greet,
encouraue and cheer him in the splep
did fight he has made and is making.
If there is a power which helps those
who help themselves, then this reward
should come to this champion of free-
Km, and he should be as he deserves,
icted by an overwhelming majority.
We hope for the best, and believe he
will win the magnificent race he has

Not Afraid of 50-Cent Dollars.

Montana, banker, has made public an
interesting letter he sent to the New
York World last August, which the
World, somehow, neglected to publish!
Helena, Mont., Aug. 21,1896.
To the New York World:
Gentlemen—l hereby authorize you
to publish that I will make a contract
S>r one hundred thousand dollars
5100,000) worth of silver, for which I
gree to pay one dollar and ten cents
($1.10) per ounce in United States gold
coin, and to be taken as soon as W. J.
Bryan, as President of the United
States, has signed a coinage bill, which
will provide for the free and unlimited
coinage of silver at a ratio compared
with gold at 16 to 1, and if any of those
who are talking about 50-cent dollars
desire this contract, and are willing to
put up a forfeiture, I am prepared to
secure this offer by a forfeiture of
twenty thousand dollars ($20,000). I
feel confident thai I can arrange simi
lar contracts among my circle of busi
ness acquaintances for twenty millions
($20,000,000). to be taken one million a
month, fur twenty months after the
signature of such a bill. Yours truly,

Suicide of a Hotel Man.
Lurat, Va., Oct, 21.—The residents
of Shenandoah, in this county, were
shocked to hear this morning of the
death, by his own hand, of Mr. A. S.
Crittenden, a merchant and proprietor
of Brown's Hotel, in that place. Mr.
Crittenden went to his room about 9
o'clock, locked the door, and shot him
self through the right temple with a
revolver. He was about dead when
assistance reached him. The rash act
was doubtless caused by business
troubles. Mr. Crittenden was 36 years
of age, and leaves a wife, but no chil
dren. He came to Shenandoah about
one year ago from Rippon, Jefferson
county, W. Va.

Deafness Cannot be Cared

There is only one way to cure deaf

of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube is inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed, Deafness is the re

be taken out and this tube restored to
its normal condition, hearing will be
destroyed forever; nine cases out of I

GRAIN TRADE AND CROPS.
The Cincinnati Price-Current of last
Weather conditions have favored
corn gathering operations, and good
progress has resulted in this line. The
abundance of the new crop, with the
stimulus .of the recent advance in
prices, has encouraged a liberal move- i
ment of this grain. With the progress j
of husking operations there is variable-,
ness in results as compared with ex- j
pected yield, the general average not
appearing to indicate any reason for
Wheat seeding operations have been
continued to considerable extent, part
ly because of previous retardation from
moisture, and partly under the more
hopeful outlook for this grain. The
conditions attending the start of the
crop have been unusually favorable.
The week has been one of much ac
tivity and excitement in the wheat
markets, and closes with an advance
of s|c for December at Chicago, after
losing 44 cents from the extreme point
reached' on Monday. Various condi
tions and influences have contributed
to the upward shaping of prices—prom
inent among them being the specula
tive confidence shown in foreign mar
kets. It appears evident that in our
markets the buying has not been large
ly on the part of the smaller class of
operators, and that the advance has
more especially profited the larger
December wheat at Chicago was
quoted as low as 574 c, on September 8,
ranging as high as 68fc the last of the

With an advance of about 49 per
cent in the value of wheat it might rea
sonably be concluded that the great
change has balanced the various fea
tures which have furnished occasion '
for such a pronounoed shaping, or oth-1
erwise it is in order to conclude that
the previous position of prices so long
prevailing was abnormally and wholly
unreasonably too low. So far as the
change in the world's situation of
wheat supplies is concerned it hardly
seems to justify a further extravagant
movement upward in values, at this
time. It has been pertinently observ
ed by a London writer that the threat
ened deficiency in wheat in India is!
prospective and not immediate. This I
observation is applicable in other di
rections, In our wheat regions there
has been a withholding of grain, but

The Mexico Bugbear.
Our distinguished friend, Major Kirk
patrick and other gentlemen who are
weeping over the impending degrada
tion of the great American Republic,
point their index fingers in warning at
the republic of Mexico as an example
of what free silver will do, without
knowing that the federal adnMiiistra
tion at Washington hasthreatauaa the
removal of Colonel Crittenden, our
chief consular agent to that country,
for making public information about
the marvelous progress of Mexico and
the high wages paid to labor there.
They didn't wish Colonel Crittenden
to tell the truth until after the election
for fear it would damage the cause of
the gold-grippers and hurt the chances
of the Republican party.
But if this disparagement of Mexico
were just—and it is not —what does it
all amount to ? Is it not preposterous
to compare this great Giant of the
Western World with that pigmy of the
Montezumas? Just consider it for a
The United States has a pop
ulation of 75,000,000
Mexico has a population of
and only about 3,000,000 of these are
whites, and they have not one what of
tne thrift or industry of our people.
The export trade of Mexico
is... $ 32,858.000
And her imports 30,287,000
Total foreign trade $ 63.145,000
The export trade of the
U. S. is $ 654,835.000
And the imports 892,111,000
Total foreign trade $1,546,910,000
Thus the foreign trade alone of the
United States is nearly. THREE
THOUSAND PER CENT: GREATER
than that of Mexico, while the domes
tic commerce of this country is nearly
FIVE HUNDRED TIMES GREATER.
The single State of Illinois has ten
times more railroad mileage and car
ries fifty times more tonnage.
Besides, Mexico coins $25,000,000 of
silver, which is 40 per cent- of her for-1
eign commerce. If the United States ,
I were to coin a like proportion of silver j
to her foreign commerce it would coin j
in one year $640,000,000, or more than
has been coined since the foundation
of the government. The simple state
ment of the facts and figures relating
to the trade differences of the two
countries ought to cause any well-in-1
formed man to refrain from making a
comparison of the United States' fl
uancial ability with that of Mexico.
But the question that we would like
to ask right here is this: if it will re
duce the United States to the level of
Mexico to have free silver coinage, be
cause Mexico has it, nsrhy will it not re
duce us to the level of Egypt to have
the gold standard, because Egypt has
it? Egypt is on a gold basis and so is
unspeakable Turkey, and savage
Spain, and benighted India, and bar
barous Africa. Maybe this latier fact
explains why the Palmerites in this
country are consorting with Africa and
coddling the Senegambian vote. Maybe
that is why tney are hiring lawyers to
watch the count and see that Africa
I gets on top.

With a better understanding of the
transient nature of the many phys
ical ills, which vanish before proper ef

rightly directed. There is comfort in
the knowledge, that so many forms of
sickness are not due to any actual dis
ease, but simply to a constipated condi
tion of the system, which the pleasant
family laxative, Syrup of Figs, prompt
ly removes. That is why it is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is
everywhere esteemed so highly by all
who value good health. Its beneficial
effects are due to the fact, that it is the
one remedy which promotes internal
cleanliness without debilitating the
organs on which it acts. It is therefore
' all important, in order to get its bene
ficial effects, to note when you pur
chase, that you have the genuine arti
cle, which is manufactured by the Cali
fornia Fig Syrup Co. only and sold by
all reputable druggists.
If in the enjoyment of good health,
and the system 'is regular, laxatives or
other remedies are then not needed. If
afflicted with any actual disease, one
may be commended to the most skillful
physicians, but if in need of a laxative,
one should have the best, and with the
well-informed everywhere, Syrup of

him, and it is estimated that nearly, if
not quite, 25.000 people composed the
concourse. At 8:15 the Bryan special
pulled out for Terre Hante, where it
arrived thirty minutes late.
The Bryan day demonstration here
concluded to-night with two speeches
by the silver champion. Silver clubs
and war veterans escorted him from
the railroad depot to the courthouse.
The streets were crowded with people
all along the route. At the courthouse
Mr. Bryan addressed 20,000 people and
then proceeded to the Terre Haute
House, where he spoke to 8000 more.
At the second meeting Mr. L. P. Bene

HAVE EYES ALIKE.
Fully nine-tenths of those who wear
glasses have different vision in each eye.
Sometimes it's a decided difference—in
others only a slight variation. A carreless
examination will fails to bring out this
effect—the same lenses will be adapted to
both eyes—and headaches and eye strains
that medicine fails to relieve,are the re
sult. We test each eye separately—select
I proper lenses, adjust glasses to suit both
eyes, and charge very moderate prices.
