In selecting your seed corn be
careful at you get corn at is

right kind for your soil and cli
mate at which will under fav
orable conditions produce a good
htand, a vigorous growth and
uniformity of ears, and at the

big to get fresh seed from a dif

Never allow cows to drink wa

yourself. Milk from common
cows, when grass fed, contains
nearly 8 7 per cent water. Th
cow has no filter in her to purity
water, and if the water is impure
the impurity goes straight into
the milk. If a cow drinks 10 0
pounds of impure water, 8 7 per
cent of the impurities of at wa

With hogs, iii nearly all cases,
it will be best to select out the
animals intended to be kept for
breeding, and then feed them es
pecially for this purpose. I is
very important to select animals
having a good development of
bone and muscle. Vigor and
thrift are important with breed

possess those qualities.

AN IDEAL PLATFORM.
For Wlllmar Tribune:
An ideal platform is one with a
great issue. With no other
plank an such at will tend
to* strengthen and build up at
one. Whenever a plank of miuor
importance will a votes away
from the great issue, it has no
business there au ought to be
left out because a a plat
form is like a chain, the strength
of which must always be measur
ed by the strength of its poorest
link." And generally so must al
so a a strength be measur
ed, by the strength of the weak
est or unpopular plank in
its platform. I politics as well
as in war the enemy will seek out
and a a the weakest point in
an opposing a platform,
so at at party instead of
discussing its main issue, is
thereby forced to take up dis
cuss and defend its weakest
plank, whereby the great issue
is lost sight of, and thus the
great cause, as well as. the a
I is a general mistake of all
new parties, the Peoples a
excepted. a up to
a issues and planks—some
even of doubtful merits—in their
platform. Th money plank
being the acknowledged main or
great issue of the Peoples party
it therefore to be very
careful not to insert planks into
its platform at will be a bur
den to the first a great issue.
No permanent reform can be at
tained in other industrial ques
tion until we get a just and eq
uitable system of finance because
it is he money of the land at

industrial machine is operated,
a it follows at if this system
is being monopolized by
or otherwise crippled, all he in
dustrial branches would be con
trolled or crippled through this,
he money system, even if they
Another great mistake is the
going to much into details,
whichs leads to much into side
issues, wherein there might be a
diversity of opinions even a
those who honestly believe in the
main issue itself. We have for
instance, in our nuance plank
several such details, such as flex
ibility, $5 0 per capita, he sub
treasury plan, free, coinage of
silver, 1 6 to 1, etc., etc. All this
as a our finance plank so
complex a intricate at a
great a people have hung
up on some of these side issues,
and lost sight of the fundament
al principle underlying the plank.
The main question in regard to
finance system is who shall issue
our money and control the vol
ume. Shall this be done by the
banks and forth banks, or by
the people and for the people
who shall use them. This is the
real issue at the people must
decide at the ballot box, while
the details by right ought to be
left to congress and if we are
able to elect men to at body
who will stand firmly up and car
ry out this principle right in the
face of the money power now in
the land, we can safely them
with a a in details of the
question. N, Q.
Those who declare at the de
monetization of silver has
nothing to do with the prevail
ing a times can no longer
take refuge under the assertion
at the present depression, if
any, is only temporary and at
there is no unusual distress. Th
distress is too apparent, to
great and to lasting to be
longer ignored or denied by the
gold-mouometallists. They are
forced to advance a reason for it.
How, then, do they explain the
enforced idleness au resulting
poverty and unrest at exists
in a country with unlimited
natural resources, with hundreds
of thousands of unemployed men
and millions of dollars of idle
capital, where there is no lack of
a disposition on the a of the
owners of unemployed capital to
secure a return for its use, and
where the thousands of idle men
are willing and anxious to work?
Overproduction is the cause,
says one Under-consumption,
chimes another. High-sounding
phrases, surely but both resting
on absurdities. Do our gold
monometallic friends, when they
advance these theories, forget
at all producers are also con
sumers, at mpii produce only
what they desire to consume? Do
they believe at a desires
will ever be completely satisfied?
Do they know at as soon
as one want is satisfied man will
have another? Did they ever
know a community which could
not consume more an it did?
The limit of consumption has
never been reached, and it never
will be. There can be a partial
overproduction of one article or
one kind of goods, of course,
overproduction of everything at
one time is an impossibility.
But what an absurdity it is on
the face of it to cry Overproduc
tion when thousands are starv
ing for want of food, when thou
sands of others are freezing for
lack of clothing, and when a
have no home to shelter them.
much food, to much cloth
ing, to many houses, indeed!
Are these the causes of our dis
tress? Th most hardened mono
metallist who cries Overproduc
tion, as he cries Dishonest dollar,
endeavoring to mislead the
people by high-sounding phrases,
will hardly dare to answer this
question in the affirmative when
placed in its true meaning. Yet
when he cries Overproduction
this is what he says.
The leaders of the gold-mono
metallic a know well enough
the cause of the distress. Bu to
continue the depression of prices,
thus enhancing the value of the
money paid them in settlement
of debts by their desparing debt
ors, they must continue to mis
lead the people. Hence the cry
Overproduction, a phrase with
out foundation, which they
support by asking. Do not the
stores of iron, cotton and woolen
goods, etc., which, although re
duced in price, are unsalable,
show overproduction? They
show nothing of the kind These
stores of unsold goods are the
result of a contracted supply of
money resulting in a depression
of prices-j hat has made it im
possibkffor would-be consumers,
who are also producers, to dis
pose of their own product at
prices which will enable them to
purchase the articles which they
iieed. Th contraction of the
money of the world as made ex
changes so difficult, has made the
medium by which.they must be
accomplished, money, s*o costly,
and inade he struggle to obtain
it so severe, at the middleman,
he owner of money, absorbs all
the profit which he producer
should receive for his product,
us leaving him without the
means to purchase these things
which he wants Thu the pro
ducer's demands as a^ consumer
are limited or stopped and as
his industry brings him no result,
incentive to further production
is destroyed Th reason at
mills and factories are closed or
running on a time, at stores
of goods remain undisposed of
while at the same time those who
should consume these goods are
suffering for their want, is at
the owners of money, by majking
it scarce, have caused a fall in
prices which enables them to
obtain such a large share of the
surplus labor at the producer
can be only a consumer to a
small extent, and as he does
realize the expected advantages
from his industry he has no in-
centive to further production.
The middlemen, the creditors of
the world, are getting the sur
plus product of the producer.—
On the Threshold of Better
Everything points to an early
return to bimetallism by the lead
ing nations of the world. Th re
cent a to fix the single
standard upon this country for
all time, without the consent of
the people, has failed. The con
gress refuses to take any action
at may be construed as point
ing at way. The senator from
the great state of New York, the
center of wealth and financial in
fluence, makes an eloquent and
apparently a sincere plea for bi
metallism. Th German reich
a or congress, at the instiga
tion of the agricultural-indus
trial party, adopts by an over
whelming majority a request to
at government to invite an in
ternational monetary conference
at shall fix a ratio between
gold and silver and rehabilitate
the white metal as a medium of
exchange throughout the world.
France is known to favor both
this conference and its object,
and the other nations of southern
Europe would follow such leader
In England, the bimetallic
league is growing at an unpre
cedented rate a the more
solid, intelligent and wealthy
people, with .strong probability
at the next elections will return
a large parliamentary majority
for bimetallism. Indeed, the
keenest business men of England
frankly admit at W the
United States, France and Ger
many united in a bimetallic
league, those countries would
soon rob England of her foreign
trade unless she -followed suit.
Contrary to the accepted idea,
our own eastern states appear
to favor bimetallism by an im
mense majority, and the west
and south are a unit for it.
The world-wide com mercial and
agricultural dirtress of the past
four years has occasioned a re
versal of opinion against the
gold standard at will be satis
