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

The Elm Caterpillar.
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

Some Safe Beta.
"Silver is now worth about 69 cents
an ounce. The silver bullion in a dol
lar is worth about 54 cents. 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
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.
