A new invention in the way of rapid

two men named Squiernnd Crehorc. It is

his own point of view doubtless [this is a

get rid of him to please Mr. Rockefeller,
and only retracted their steps in the face
of national objection, contempt and ridi?

with the so me narrow and sordid hypoc?

The objet t- of the public school s^is to

The Chicago Record is circulating pi i i
I lions all over the United Slates for a pos?
tal savings bank bill. In the in trod tic -
I lion oi a draft cf the bill, the Record has
' the following: -All the leading nations
of the world, with the exception of two or
three, have postal savings banks, anil all
have better facilities for the accommoda?
tion of savings depositors than has the
i United States. While savings deposits
in this country have shown a gradual in
j crease during the last quarter of a ecu
I tury, the savlnas deposits and number of
depositors in-, countries having postal
savings banks have grow n by leaps and
j bounds. In the. United StatesStlper cent,
of the savings banks and savings depos?
its are in the New England States anil
New York. Throughout, the West and
South, except in the great centers of pop
illation, it is impossible for private en?
terprise to furnish savings facilities stilli
cient to meet the needs of the people. Be?
sides, the depositor of small mean- fre?
quently is not able to pick ct. from pri?
vate banks those that are. safe, and con
sequently will trust none, wherea. all
could have confdencc iu ah institution

COMMON SENSE OF FARMERS,
Not Disposed to Ignore the True
Cause of Wheat Advances.
Washington,Sept. 1".?Senator Harris,
of KllUellS, is in Washington, direct from i
tho West. He says the people of his part
of the country understand the condition
of things unite well and are not to be
fooled by the claims of the Republicans
that the increase in the price of win at
id'due to the return of 'a ^Republican ad?
"The farmers.'' said the Senator, "are
a set of men who are not carried away
with the enthusiasm of the Republicans,
tint in Kansas there is a great deal of
good, hard common sense, and the
farmers know that tho increase, in the j
price of wheat is due to one of those nc
ctdents of nature and not to any legisla?
tion. They know verv well that if we
had free silver wheat would be selling at
$1.25 a bushel instead of t he 75 or 80
cents they are now getting. Wheat
never did fall until silver was demone?
tized, and its present, price, although
greater than it has been in recent, years,
is not what it ought to he or would he
under former financial conditions.
"There has been much talk here in the
Rast uncut the enormous wheat crop in
j our State. In the eastern part of the
State there is very little wheat. The
large crop ts found only in about one
fifth of the State, and even there it is not
greater than usual when a good season is
'In the eastern part of the State the
farmers have taken in recent years to
raising potatoes for the reason that they
paid better than anything else. This
year we grew a large crop of potatoes
while that usually raised in Missouri,
which CC 111 petes with us for tho Chicago
tt. de. was a total failure. The conse?
quence was that we controller1 the mar?
ket and the price went up. Near my
farm there is a cross.roads postmaster
who has been talking a great tleal of the
return of piospertty and attributing
everything,even the price of wheat,to tin:
Dlngley bill and the Republican party
' The other day a farmf- from the po?
tato country'of Missouri stopped at this
oillce, and this postmaster began to go
over his stock arguments. When lie hail
finished the visitor said that, if he would
comedown into Missouri and talk that
way he would be hanged. The Ding
ley bill may have caused a Mg crop of
potatoes in Kansas, but if that, was true
it had ruined the crop in M'ssouri, and
any man' who would go into that State
and attribute the failure of the crops to
the party it: power would be a lit subject
for a hanging bee.
"We are in good shape politically.
, There are 105 counties in Kansas, ami in
I 05 of them there has been complete~and
thorough fusion on * free 'silver. AM
elements favoring the free coinage of
silver are working together in hurmsny,
and there is absolutely [no doubt as. to
what the result will be lit the next elec?
tion so far as our State is c lucerned."
