tho great ques

of this all important issue. The fate of
bimetallism is in his bauds.

perhaps to one, and that is. Has silver

tue vorcs 01 a million honest fanners.
Mouometallists say gold has atood still
while ail other things have rhi-anencd.
We say that silver has stood almost un
changed while gold has advanced enor
mously in value, and. what is more, we
Trove it by every line of reasoning which
can ne applied to the subject. That sil
ver is by natural
law far more sta
ble in value than
gold has been

prices in differ

country at differ
ent times. Everr
-auge. , one ot these tests
nas yielded exactly the same result
iiie nuctuatious since the principal na-
tions adopted the gold standard iave
exceeded all previously known. Bnt
here is a simple test which the farmer
can easily apply for himself:
Take the average of prices in your
neighborhood for the five yearn ending
in 1875 (it is not fair to take one year)
and the average gold or greenback value
of a ten ounce bar of silver at that
time. Divide and see what that silver
would have bought. Do the same for
the five years ending with 1895, and you
will find that the silver will buy more.
Is it not arrogant and insulting non
sense to say that silver has depreciated
when it will buy nioro of the products
or your labor? Here is a table to help
yon in tho calculation:
