A Ltsr of 430 republicans, who are
going to vote for Mr. Bryan and free
silver has been prepared in New
Orleans county. New York, for pub
lication n.tl week in tbe county
papers. W. K. Wilier, chairman of
the republican city committee of
Niagara Falls, has resigned in order
to support Bryan, and Galen Miller,
one of the supervisors of Lewiston,
who for years was a republican, U
also an ardent supporter ot Bryan.
Many like examples might bei-iud
to show how tbe free silver sentl
nient has spread throngh western
New York, the republican hotbed.
That sound republican. Col. Robert
G. Ingersoll, thitks Ibis way on tbe
money question : "For my part I
do not ak any interference ou tbe
part of tbe government except to
undo the wrong 'it has done. I do
not ak that money be made out of
nothing. I do dot ask of prosperity
born ot paper. But I do aik tor the
renioneiimion ot silver. It was an
imposition upon every solvent man:
a fraud upon every honest debtor in
the I'nited States. It assassinated
labor. It was done in the Interest
el avarice and greed and should be
undone bv honest men."

Ht. tmiK KepuMie-
Col. Clark E. Carr. of Illinois.
who held the position of minister to
Itontuark under Harrison, is in New
F.ngland helping the campaign of his
party, being ordered thete by Boss
llanna. The distinguished colonel
has undertaken to speak for the west
tor nis own state in particular
He assures bis friends in tbe east of
republican victory in tbe section for
which he speaks.
The colonel declares that at the po.
niicai meetings in the wsst, which
are held in tbe open air. tbe utmost
interest is manifested ana tbe speak
era are given tbe closest attention
This is absolutely true, and it is also
atwolutely ttne that the party to
which Col. I arr belongs is not so
anxious for that campaign ot educa
tion upon which it professes to de
pend so much, for every official of
the party endeavors, wherever possi
ble. t put an end to a street discus
sion on the plea that a city ordi
nance is being violated.
The farmers ot the west, particu
larly tbe farmers of Illinois, mast
feel deeply complimented bp the
term la which Mr. Carr refers to
their Intelligence. Starting off with
the declaration that the silver
stampede was due to a delusion," he
adds these words: "The farmers
had an idea that al of tbe silver in
the country had been demonetized
and that half of tbe money of the
country had been destroyed ." Ft
naJlr. be etpressee tbe belief that
about ninety-ove per cent 01 the re-
publican farmers who first rashed to
the silver side are now strong Bound
With Mr. Carr. as with all speak
ers on his tide ot the issne of the
campaign, the free silver movement
is aimplj doe to ignorance u
inslin. xmsia nia mraw
honesty and power of thought of the
voter. He will find that he is sadly
mistaken. Tbe farmer does not
change his political convictions with,
out serious consideration. Circum
stances hare forced the majority of
them to realize the evils of a gold
standard. One of the most striking
circumstances is the fact that they
are compellel to sell corn at a price

DUSTY BY ACTUAL COUNT.
B Beleatlat Has Numbered tbe Dait Par
ticles la the Very Purest Air.
It has always been believed that there
rould bo no dust in tbe air of midorean
or upon mountain peaks thousands of
fwt above the sea level where the
snows am eternal. But science has re
cently demonstrated that snrh is not the
case. It has even gone farther than
finding dust in those places. It has
counted, with the utmost accuracy, tho
number of particles in a cubic crnti
Dust measurements were made from
air over the opeu ocean and in uiouu
tain regions at altitudes from 6.000 fee
to more than 13.000 feet. On tho Bles
horn, in Switzerland, which forms part
of the Alpinn chain, containing the
Kothliorn and Wcisshorn, fining about
9,000 feet aliove tho Zcmiatt valley ou
the east, nnd sonio 8,000 feet from that
tX Zianl oil the wort, the observations
showed that at an elevation of 6,700
fi-et there were. 050 Just particles in a
rmbic centimeter, which measures a lit
He over one-third of an inch. At 8,400
feet elevation only 513 dust particles
were found, and at 13,600 feet above
tho sea thn number diminished to 157
t cubic centimeter.
trver tli Imli.tn ocean tho average
umulN-r (f iliiHt particles in a cubic cen
timeter was less than BOO for seven out
of nine flays, and on five days was less
than 400. During a thick fog in the At
bin tic tbe air was found to contain 3.120
dust particles per cubic centimeter,
while in the clear region just beyond
tbe fog them were only 280 dust parti
;le in the same space.
iTobably even few men of science
wonld be able to tell how these parti
rles could be counted, but a wonderful
little instrument has been devised which
makes the task an easy one. The dust

though 70 years have bowed the frame

Blood is essential to health. Every nook
and corner of tbe system is reached
by tbe blood, and on its quality tbe
condition of every organ depends. Good
blood means strong nerves, good diges
tion, robust health. Impure blood means
scrofula, dyspepsia, rheumatism, catarrh
or other diseases. The surest Tray to
have good blood is to take Hood's
Sarsaparilla. This medicine purifies, vi
talizes, and enriches tbe blood, and sends
the elements of health and strength to
every nerve, organ and t issue. It creates
a good appetite, gives refreshing sleep
