For Presl'lelt :
WM. J. BRYAN,
For Vice i'reshidcllt:
lieciun t at il'i doc0s aot agree
with you ill politics do not iuumedi
ately conlclude that lhe is at! anarelt
ist or a hoodlum, a pirate or' traitor.
These terms are Iorv hurled about
by menl who were formerly gentle
men. There are millions of American
citizens who do not agree with other'
American citizens; but the number
oi anarchists, hood hiums, pirates and
traitors in this country is limited.

Major McKinley was Iiominated
on the aunive'rsary ot the battle of
Waterloo. The connection- between
that atniversary and the nomina
lion lies in thie fact -that McKinley
is known imniliarly as the Napoleon
ot proteotioi. And ther reare many
people, who predict that he will
meet hIs political Waterloo as.soon
as the voters come to the polls. It
is said that at din our on the day he
was notified of his nolmilation-Ma
jor McKinley upset a salt-cellar.

Rise in Price of Cotton Ties.
We suppose that it will be sad
and disappointing news to the cot
ton producers to hear that the
iriceof ties, all ilnispensableIarticle
in preparing their product for the
market, Iha been almost doubled
within the past few ldays, with a
still further advance after the first
of August of about ten per cent.
Those who had already laid in their
supplies of ties before the advance
.came were in luck, but we doubt if
many! planters had the foresight or
means with whiich to do this, though
we suppose most of. the dealers had
-- either purchased or contracted for
most of the ties they expected to
hantdlo during the season,-and thus
will come out considerably ahead
-by the deal. The Southern plant
era spend. millions of dollars an
nuallly -for bagging -and ties with
which to pack their crops and place
them ian marketable shape, and
they will therefore notice with deep
regret the advance in the price of
both these commodities which will
go far towards reducing the already
meagre profits they make ou their
