speak of saving. Russell Sage has
been quoted as saying that the found
ation of a fortune may be made by
saviug. Well, my bottle nosed
brethren, it depends a whole lot on
what you save. If you try to save
your no count bodies from work or any
kind of effort it won't put you on the
highway to opulance. saving life on
the sea coast may be exhilerating
but if ever a man got rich he has van
ished from our ken. Silent men save
their breath but noisy men get as
much dough in the run-in. Saving
money is a good thing but while do
ing that remember it is just as im
portant to save your health and mor
als lor we have very good authority
for believing that it is very hard for
a rich man to eventually be saved on
that ground alone, in conclusion,
my dearly whang-doodled brethren, I
would say that the duck has a flat
bill, no teeth, short legs, web feet, is
as large as a rock and has feathers.

Will Sugar Cano Pay?
Ed. Miller, of Oran. was in to see
us Tuesday. He says buildings are
constantly going up and that Oran
promises to be the coming town of
Scott county. In speaking of coming
crops Mr. Miller says he will cry his
luck in raising sugar cane. He says
he has tried cane in small quantities
and that the yield was from three to
four hundred gallons per acre. He
finds ready sale for it at from twenty
five to thirty cents per gallon, which
nets a handsome return of from seventy-five
to one hundred dollars per
acre. He says it requires no more
labor to cultivate than ordinary corn.
What do the rest of our farmers
think about it?

As to the farmer, his wheat Is be
low the Cost of production, but we
must charge, that to some extent to
overproduction! Silver is likely to
be the next national issue, arid it
would be useless to nominate a man
for President in 1896 that was op
posed to silver. In my view, silver
is a real money metal, and it should
be f omonetized at a ratio of 16tol.
We need more money; we needchcap
er money; total demonetization of
silver would mean increased purchas
ing power for gold. If the purchasing
power of gold should be increased 23
per cent by the demonetization of
silver, it would decrease all agricul
tural products 15 per cent. Conse
quently Wheat here now would be
worth about 30 Cents a bushel and
all other products would be subject
to the same fall in value, except
manufactured products which are
more or less monopolized and control
led by trusts. The' would maintain
their prices, regardless of the demon
etization of silver. But that is not
all it would do. It would increase
the rate of interest oil the poor manj
The poor and ordinary farmer woula
soon be reduced to poverty by such
reduced prices and but few men would
venture to buy land on credit for the
purpose of establishing a home and
improving the same, for fear of los
ing it in the end. The final result
would be that the land owners with
their money would constitute one
class while the tennants with their
poverty would make up the other. It
is horrible to think of, and yet we
have thousands of men in this coun
try who desire just such a state of
things to exist.
On the other hand, if silver held
its proper ratio, it would decrease
the purchasing powerof both metals.
In short, it would decrease the pur
chasing power of all our money, and
the result would be prices wouid rule
higher all around, the people would
have more money, there would he
more permanent homes established,
there would be more happy families,
fewer mortgaged homes, fewer ten
ants. We would have a better class
of citizens, for it is a well known fact
that a man owning an unencumbered
farm will improve it, whereas the
renter has not the stimulant of own
ership to make him do so. It would
cause many a young man to buy and
establish for himself a pleasant and
permanent home. Economy.
