Here are a few of the things the
remarkable man, J. V. rowderly,
said aoout free coinage in 1891
Read them and then see what he aaid
last night at Harper's theatre:
'Tne mechanic and the laborer
are as deeply interested in the free
coinage) of silver as the farmer can
possibly be. To the
labrer, then, the enrrenev question
is as important as to any man in the
land. If the currency is so costly
intrinsically that bat few can afford
to possess a great deal of it, or if the
material of which it Is made is sub
ject to speculative tariff, tho oppor
tunities to secure steady employ
ment will vary in proportion to the
fluctuations in tbe price of the com
modity of which the money is
The farmer has been heard on
the silver question; and the city
workman, although he has not
spoken out on tbe subject, holds
views identical with those of his
neighbor on the farm. It
may be aaid of the laborer that he is
in favor of a circulating medium that
will be a fnll legal tender for all
debts, public and private, the earn
to be issued by hia government, a
authorised by tbe constitution of the
United States, without the interven
tion of any banking concern what
ever. Then in congress at the behest of
owners of gold, silver was secretly
and stealthily demonetised. This
the laborer did not see. nor tho pres
ident who signed the bill; and. within
the last few months a la teamen who
were senators and congressmen in
1873, when the demonetization of
silver was accomplished, bave ad
mitted voting for tbe bill without
knowing it contained the demone
tization clause. One statesman haa
denied that act of treachery to the
people John Sherman and he is
today the subject of adverse criticism
by nearly every living man who sat
with bint in the senate when the bill
was adopted without question, on
bis word that it contained nothing
that interfered with the coinage of
tbe ailvr dollar. Gold is the legal
standard today because the bankers,
brokers and gold owners of the wbrld
influenced congress to make it so;
the people never demanded it, never
uttered a sentiment that could be
construed in favor of monometalism.
never petitioned congress or a con
gressman to pass such a law.
"If free and unlimited coinage is
restored, it will benefit the owners of
silver mines and give ns an 83 cent
dollar to circulate with the gold dol
lar," 1 Is another frar entertained.
Such an argument applies with equal
force against the use of gold, for our
present system gives the owners of
gold mines a monopoly over all
others. The monopoly enjoyed by
gold employs bat little labor in com
parison with what would be em
ployed if silver were admitted to tree
coinage; a stimulus would be given
to labor in the west, and the proa
periiy of that part of the country
could not possibly have a bad effect
on tbe east. In any event, to ask
for fre coinage is not the heretical
demand the apologists for gold wonld
have ns believe, for it was only a de
mand foY what we bad and enjoyed
from the founding of the republic up
to 1873. In no market has
gold a commodity value today; it is
not quoted anywhere as a commod
ity, simply because it has been ad
mitted to free coinage as money.
Pokers are made of iron, bnt once
forged into pokers they are no longer
quoted as iron and are ared as pokers
until necessity shall demand a
change ' when they may be forged
into fence railings or something else.
Whi e 1 hey are pokers they am val
ued only as pokers and nothing else,
and a gold poker or a silver poker
would have no more value as a poker
than an iron one. There will be this
difference, however; there wi 1 al
ways be more of a temptation to hide
the gold and silver pokers away than
those made of iron, and aa a conse
quence the iron ones will be most
reliable for every day use until a
chesper and equally durable metal is
discovered, when iron will have to
give way. What is true of pokers is
true of currency; the material should
not be too costly or difficult to pro-
The mechanic and laborer favor
the free coinage of silver as a step
iorwara, ior tney Deiieve enough
money should circulate to do the
business of the nation. "
C ccctlna; a Love Philter.
A Barman told Mr. Poole that be had
been present at a somewhat similar cer
emony. A love philter was wanted.
The Burman and a conjurer, therefore.
having collected some of the necessary
ingredients, went to a tomb, where the
conjurer described a circle round them
on the ground. As in European magic,
they were not to budge out of this cir
cle, for fear of consequences. The ma
gjciuu did his ritea, and slowly, like a
vapor, out of the earthy covering of the
grave, rose the girl buried beneath, and
sat on her tomb, her thick hnir falling
over and bidiug her face. "Grind!"
cried the magician, throwing to tier a
mortar, a pestle, and some of his nnlioly
materials. And, the black hair hiding
ail out her Horrible eyes, tbe dead worn
Now all this while the native looker on
was growing more and more nervous,
and his condition affected the conjurer,
who lost his bead, and could not per
form the converse rite and send the dead
woman back into her sepulcber. Mean
while she grew to a towering height,
and so alarmed the onlooker that be
broke the circle and fled, followed by
the demoralized magician, with the
dead woman at their heels. Luckily
there was a house bard by, in which
they found shelter, for ghosts, or at
least this kind of ghost, cannot enter a
house. Next night tbe magician, who
had recovered bis nerve, wcut back and
laid tbe specter. Andrew Lang in

Probably the most independent and
aristocratic bank in tbe world is tbe
Norges or national -bank of Norway. It
seems to be wholly indifferent to doing
business of any kind, and what it does
do it msists upon doing in its own
deliberate way. Socially the bank is of
considerable importance. The directors
meet twice a week, and these friendly
gatherings are said to be most enjoyable
affairs. Loans and discounts form the
chief subjects of conversation. No loan
ar discount can be made without tbe ap
proval or three or tbe directors.
Suppose the directors are to hold a
meeting on Wednesday and you want
to borrow ao.OOO on Monday. You ap
ply to Norges bank and are told that
the matter will be taken under consid
eration at tbe directors' meeting on
weaueraay, and 70a may look for an
answer to your application by Thurs
day. It does not matter in the least that
you want the $5,000 on Monday and
not Thursday. Voa simply have to
The origin of this institution waa as
peculiar as its management is anuaual.
Soon after the nominal union of Nor
way and Sweden, in 1814, tbe latter
country began to feel the need of great
er money facilities to meet the demands
of tbe rapidly increasing commerce.
The problem of securing tbe necessary
capital ror a great national institution
was a very simple one for the Nor
. It raised stockholders for the bank
just as it raised soldiers for its armies.
Every well to do citizen was compelled
to take so inncn stock. He was always at
liberty to take more if he chose, but al
ways in amounts divisible by five.
Bookkeeping was made easy on a new
principle, in accordance with which
sums ending in other figures than five
and zero were to be excluded from the
This national bank is also a pawn
shop. It is authorized by law to lend
money on any nouperishable goods, pro
vided they can be deposited in the bank
and kept under lock and key. For this
service it charges rather less than the
usual pawnbroker's interest, which
may perhaps account for the rarity of
private pawnshops in Norway. In the
regular loan department the carious
ruli" is enforced that loans may not be
made for less than one month nor for
more than six and only for sums of at
least $1 20. Pittsburg Dispatch,

Dr. Redmond, a specialist in the
stuay ana treatment if piles and
rectal diseases, recently stated that
mo 1 jrauiiu rue v;ure, tne new dis
covery for the cure of piles, was the
most remarkable remedy be had ever
seen or triea in one respect, and that
was the instant relief experienced in
all cases, no matter how severe.
from the moment the remtdy was
applied; thia was the more surpris
ing to him, because he had carefully
ana' v zed the preparation and no
trace of opium, cocaine or similar
poison could be detected.
Physicians look with great favor
upon the Pyramid Pile Cure, because
it is rapidly taaing tbe place of sur
gical operations and because it is so
simple, so easily applied and con
tains no mineral or other poisons so
commonly used in vile cures.
Dr. Ester brook reports that tbe
ryramid file Uure not only cares the
various torms 01 piles, but never
tails to give immediate relief on the
first application, no matter bow se
vere tne pain or discomfort may be.
People who have suffered from
piles for years are often astonished
at tbe instant relief experienced from
the first application. " Another im
portant advantage is the fact that
anyone can use the remedy without
detention from business or interfer
ence with daily occupation. Sold by
