THE FREE COINAGE SCARE,
It is not tho fear of too much silver
money that makes Eastoru money
centers solid againg free coin ago of
silver. It is tho fear that tho treasury
department in its efforts to maintain a
parity between the gold and silver
dollar would bo forcod to seek a mar
ket in Kuropo for tho bonds necessary
for tho maintainance of tLis parity.
Tho secretary of tho treasury Iirs tho
power, rather ho is commanded by the
aot of congress, July 1-1, 1S90, to issue
United Statos treasury gold bonds at
not moro than 5 por cent, interest in
sufficient volume to maintain a parity
between gold and silver.
Those bonds could, and doubtless
would be sold in England, tho treas
urer receiving thcrofor Bank of En
gland notes which aro convortable
into gold coin and by that means gold
enough would bo importod to main
tain the party. It is not that tho
manipulator of finanoo aro afriid
thoro will be too mujh money in the
oountry. Thoy want more money
themsolvos. It is tho desiro to con
trol tho credit of tho oountry that
makes them frantio whon thero is a
promise of any legislation which may
drive American securities abroad.
This is ovidonood by the faot that no
objection is urgod to froo coinage if
by international agreement a uniform
ratio is established.
THE EVENING NEWS.

ning that day Tub News will con

tolegraph report of 3000 words and
will also contain tho full afternoon
associated press report of from 2000
to 4000 words. This will givo it
nearly eight columns of telegraphic
nows more than has over been
published by any paper in Waco.
Jf tho business of the paper justi
fies tho change, it will be again en
larged to the sizo it maintained dur
ing the month of December, but
whether it is largor or smaller it will
contain all tho nows and
this is what the peoplo want. Its

Whon we wero boys a blow on tho
head from n rubber ball was a matter
of no cdnscquoiico, but now tho rubber
balls played with by children nro so
hard that If thrown with sufficient vio
lence thoy can cause ncrious Injury, if
not death. This is because in tho rush
for low prices u number of ingredients
linvo been introduced into rubber to
such nn extent that absolutely pure
rubber Is now bomething moro easily
Imagined than found. Ordinary black
rubber, which is hard to tho touch,
contains a considerable quantity of lead

Rubber Mint Is transparent is fre
quently prparcd with gun cotton. It
is dillleult to imagine which of theso
threo ingredients is tlio most objection
able, and peoplo who havo a liaba of
chewing rubber need not bo surprised
if very unpleasant feelings result. Of
course rubber adulterated witli mineral
matter is less elastic than tho simon
pure article, and it is no longer possiblo
to stretch n pair of overshoes as it used
Tlio samo thing is apparent in rubber
used in machinery. Not many years
ago a threo ply belt was considered
strong enough for nny purposo, whereas
now a six ply has frequently to bo used.
Tho six ply does not cost so much as
tho old three ply used to, but on a
question of cheapness in tho long run
it is probablo tlio old high priced, pure
article canio out ahead. interview in

When (lowers or other bright decora
tions aro hard to obtain a most pleasing
substitute is afTorded by tho cones of
pine or Norway spruce. Theso in their
natural color aro very pretty, but their
effect can be greatly heightened by
bronzing or gilding them. Tho liquid
gold paints sold by all dealers in artists'
goods arc cheap and produce good ro
suits. Apply two coats, so that the
cone will be well covered. A cluster of
them, shining against a background of
dark green, will stand put brilliantly by
lamplight. For a good deal of the dec
orativo work about arches over tho al
tar and in tho making of crosses nnd
Eiinilnr designs thoy aro much prefera
ble to (lowers or fruit, as thoy aro more
in harmony with tlio overgrcons among
which they aro used.
Provided your gilding is good, most
pleasing results can bo secured by giv
ing coucs-snch a covering. Try it, and
you will bo suro to bo pleased with this
new method. It is always well to re
member that artistic effects do not de
pend upon elaborate designs. Tlio sim
plest decorations, especially in a church
altar, aro ofttimes tho most effective,
