The claims of cotjea as a useful article of diet are steadily
winning Tecognitio'h. Unlike tea and coffee, it is not only a
, stimulant but a nourisher; and it has the great advantage of
leaving no narcotic effects. Hence it is adapted to general
use. The strong may take it with pleasure, and the weak

. . Cheap McKinley Stockings.
Protectionist papers have been saying
that the talk, about "McKinley prices"
has ceased. They pretend that the whole
thing never did have any truth in it, and
was only a scare of the "free trade or
gans" to catch votes last fall
Some of these papers have taken the
trouble to prepare lists of articles in
which prices are the same as last year or
lower. This was of course easy to do, as
the McKinley law did not raise duties on
everything, and where it did raise them
on articles like farm products such in
crease could have no effect whatever in
raising prices; but these protection jour
nals make a very long leap at a conclu
sion when they claim on the strength of
these lists that no prices have advanced.
One thirg that lends color to their
claim is that some prices that were at
first advanced by the McKinley law have
again fallen to the old figure. But how
has this been brought about? A protec
tionist trade journal of high standing has
given the answer to this question. This
ia The New York Dry Goods Economist,
which sav8 :
"The effect of the new tariff has been
to bring into the market several novel
ties that give the effect of value without
an actual expenditure of cost in the
manufacture. So in imported hosiery
we still have what is known in the trade
as the 'twenty-five cent stocking, but in
quality and workmanship it is slightly
interior. It has been adroitly cheap
ened. The customer gets the article at
the old price, but it is not as good, and
no advertising lies can make it as eood,
And so McKinley's cheapness in this
case means debasing the quality. "Cheap
ana nasty go together.
If the cotton growers of the south were
protectionists, and if they believed that
a duty on raw cotton could help them,
they would soon be rushing to congress
to beg for protection from tho cheap
pauper grown cotton of Egypt. A cargo
of 2,150 bales of Egyptian cotton worth
350,000 was recently landed at New
York. When McKinley was fooling the
iarmers ne forgot the cotton growers.
We are a patient people the
ox is nowhere in comparison.
