The extreme hot weather ot the latter part of last week, which was commen cing to have a bad eflect on the growing crops, was followed Sunday night by a retreshing s'uower and a cooler wave that was of great benefit to grain fields and gardens.

Just think of two bosses Pettigrew and Loucks, lying down under the same uilt _______ Anything republicans have said in re lation to the Chicago convention is tame in comparison with tho characterization givon it by sound money democrats. The Republican party was the author of the free homestead law, and has ever proved itself the friend ot the western settler, by a just and liberal policy to wards all who have been engaged in building homes tor themselves on the frontier. Tha election of a republican president and congress will ensure to the settlers on the xeservation lands in this and adjoining counties the homes which they have taken, without the pay meut of the 8100 now demanded. The voters in Lura, Blooming Valley and Farmington townships will do well to bear this in mind when they cast their votes this tall. The party gives its sa cred pledge in this matter by tho follow ing plank in the platform "We believe in an immediate return to the free homestead policy of the republican par ty and ur^o the passage by congress of the satisfactory free homestead measure which has already passed the house and is now pending in the senate. The Populist State Convention con vened at Huron this week, and voted to endorse the democratic nominee tor president, Wm. J. Bryan.

The state entomologist, at the agricul tural college sends the following: The caterpillar of the Antiopa butter fly, Euvaneesa aniiopa, is unusually abundant on the elm trees this summer. The young elm leaves are the fayorile food of the larva or grub. It is covered with tufts of short spines, is marked with browu or black, and may grow to a longth of one and one half inches. For a few infested elm trees tho best treat ment will be to hand pick the young caterpillars from the ends of the twigs. The leaves may be sprayed or sprinkled with Pans green. Thoroughly mix one ounce of Paris green with ten gallons of water and apply with a force pump and nozzle, or even with u sprinkler or broom. A table spoonful of Paris green may be thoroughly mixed with a pail of "water. One ounce of Paris green mny be well mixed with three pounds ot slaked lime, or of olaster paris and dust ed on the leavos while wet with dew. After rains the spraying or sprinkling must be renewed. Paris green is a deadly iroison, and should be carefully guarded from children and farm animals. The yjung caterpillars eat the poisoned leaves and are killed. All the elm caterpillars should be killed now that an increase of the pest may be prevented, and these most beautiful shade trees may be insured to the prairies. Watson does all kinds of tin work.

Free silver coinage would raise the price of silver to 12!l cents tin ounce, and the silv in an American dollar would be worth §1 in gold the world over even without a. government stamp on it."—Ex-Con gressman R. P. Bland in New York World of July 1, 1800. If you liavo a neighbor who thinks Bland is a great statesman, and who is willing tobiick his opinion with money, and who would have anything to loso after going through the free coinage cyclone, here are some of the perfectly safe bets you can mako him: First.—That free coinage would not in one year raise the price of silver to $1 per ounce. (You can bet on any number of years, but would have to wait longer before the bet could be set tled. Socond.—That tho price of silver will bo lower one year after than one year before the passage of a free coinage act. Third.—That the price of silver will be less than 80 cents per ounce when a free coinage act has been in effect six months or one year. Fourth. —That at no time within one year after freo coinage at 10 to 1 has become a law will an American silver dollar be worth as much as 75 per cent of the value of an American gold dollar. If you cannot get even bets, give odds. The price of silver is determined mainly by the cast of production. All the silver the world can use can Lo pro duced at less than 75 and probably less than 70 cents per ounce. No legislation can raise, except for a short time, the price of silver. It is to be hoped that we will never be forced to make this fool ish free coinage experiment, but if we do we should, if we can find takers, re coup some of our certain losses by bet ting on the inevitable.
